If I leave a message on your talk page, go there to respond.

It is currently 5:54 EST. If daylight savings time is in effect in the United States, it is actually 6:54 EDT.

On weekdays, I'm generally active from 17:00 to 23:00. On weekends, I'm generally active from 10:00 to 23:00. During the summer months, these times may change drastically depending on my geographical location and schedule.

Poke Mart Pt2

What do you mean by "would increase the post-expand include size by a significant amount"? Is it because using a template in a template needs more ressources?

Here is how I see it:

Imagine the table is X bytes and that we have 20 marts, so 20X bytes in the mainspace.

If we put the X bytes in a template and link these templates, we would be left with only X bytes and some other (for the template insertion). So 20X -> X. Where am I wrong? :o

Beside, as I said, I've spotted an error in the table, so instead of changing it 20 times, I'd only have to change it one time like this: (I know that you probably already know that, but I'm visual okay? :P )


Thank you in advance! ^~^ MannedTooth (Talk) 01:42, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

MediaWiki is weird and so the post-include size for a template is the raw code of the template and the evaluated code as well. You can calculate the change by previewing the page before and after the change. Also, changing 20 pages is just relatively minor compared to hundreds or thousands of pages. --Abcboy (talk) 03:18, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

XY party screen screenshot

Hi, I've gotten permission from User:Zesty Cactus to upload the screenshot as mentioned a week ago.

I'm not autoconfirmed on Archives, though. Can you help me upload it?

Thank you! Angelsl (talk) 14:55, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

I have uploaded it to the Archives and added it to the page. --Abcboy (talk) 15:56, 14 February 2016 (UTC)


Are my edits good? :3 MannedTooth (Talk) 01:25, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

They appear to be fine. --Abcboy (talk) 01:44, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

S07 on Hungama TV

So, Season 7 debuted today with AG041. Please update the South Asia page with this. Also, can you include a sentence like "The channel shifted the anime from a 1:00 PM time slot as was for the 6 earlier seasons to a 6:30 timeslot" ? → PikaTepig999 13:25, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Added. --Abcboy (talk) 19:48, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll let you know if there are any updates. → PikaTepig999 01:52, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Staff of Mystery Dungeon

Hello should not Staff of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time and Darkness be moved to Staff of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Expolrers of Darkness? It is inconsistently named both with other staff pages and with the main article itself. --Raltseye 17:01, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Moved. --Abcboy (talk) 19:48, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Template for this page

Am I allowed to create a template to reduce the amount of code in this page ? MannedTooth (Talk) 02:24, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

The page is mostly text and a simple table. A template really wouldn't help that much. --Abcboy (talk) 02:35, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
For now it's only some tables, but I'm planning on adding all the toys, so about 40 tables. MannedTooth (Talk) 02:42, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
The table itself is simple. A template for the table, given the fact that the template is likely only going to be used on the one page, seems excessive. --Abcboy (talk) 02:46, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
As you wish, but it might reduce the page's size by ALOT. I also thought that some templates were only used once too? MannedTooth (Talk) 02:48, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
I don't wish to harass, but will making a template be that bad in comparaison of the ease it would provide me adding hundreds of figures? Think of when we will have images, this page will be heavy. MannedTooth (Talk) 03:30, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
The page will be heavy because of the images themselves. Adding templates really doesn't help much with that. Of course, you can subst: a temporary template in your userspace if it makes it easier to enter the data. --Abcboy (talk) 03:33, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Inquiry on the Progress of Fixing Episode Numbering

Hello. I was wondering what the progress has been on fixing the episode numbering for the Pokemon Anime. I understand that this would take a lot of work and I appreciate what you and all the admins have done. However, it seems as if there is a lack of progress on this front, either that or a lack of information. Specifically, the status of what is currently SS033 has still not been decided on despite it being over 10 months. I'm sorry if this is the wrong person to ask and I apologize for any inconvenience, but it would be nice to have an update on the situation about where this issue is currently at right now. Personally, from your user page, I prefer Proposal 1, but that's just my humble opinion. Thank you so much for your consideration. --DTM (talk) 18:55, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

It is currently being discussed by staff. --Abcboy (talk) 05:34, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

About Squishy

Excuse me, Abcboy, what do you think on how Squishy sounded like? It makes that warbling sound in English and Japan. So I just curious about how it really sounded like.--CoolPokéGuy (Talk) 05:27, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

I haven't watched the episode in question recently, so unfortunately I can't assist you with how it sounded in the Japanese version. --Abcboy (talk) 05:34, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Theresa Buchheister as Aliana?

Where did she confirm this? I know she confirmed a season 19 role, but where did she specify Aliana? Technickal (talk) 21:41, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

A user who has apparent ties to and previously edited on behalf of Michele Knotz added it to Aliana. --Abcboy (talk) 21:52, 26 February 2016 (UTC)


I thought the name origin had to have names that actually relate to the thing in question which is why I undid it. TryPokaron has a different spelling from Triathlon so if anything, saying TriPokalon may be a portmanteau is more likely. So instead of saying it "may be portmanteau", I said it may be "derived from". That name origin fits more for Pokéathlon than for the Showcase anyway.-- --Handmaiden 101 (tAlk) 23:11, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

トライポカロン and トライアスロン share the "tri-/torai-" and "-ron/-lon" part, so it could be called a portmanteau in Japanese (this also happens in Korean) even though the spelling changes in English (Pocket + Monsters → Pokémon, for example). The "tri-" appears to refer to how three Showcases need to be won to participate in the Master Class rather than how there are three parts like in a triathlon, as shown by the Chinese name referencing the triple crown. --Abcboy (talk) 02:11, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I knew what you really meant, it's just that I felt the word "TryPokaron" was off when you said portmanteau. Maybe saying "ToraiPokaron" instead with the Japanese letters would work better?
I also thought the same with the "Tri" (the 3 keys that is) which is why I also thought the "Ron" part might have been referencing Salon since l's don't exist there (I think the French pronunciation also has Salon) where people get dressed up. Performers and their Pokemon do this for their acts; the Pokemon Styling part relates to that too. This is mostly why I'd like to try and keep "TriPokalon" there too.-- --Handmaiden 101 (tAlk) 05:48, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Locking Ash's Noivern

Since I happened to see you online (just made an edit), I popped over here to request that Ash's Noivern be locked due to the beginning of an edit war. There's disagreement about whether Noivern "defeated" Zapdos in the recent episode, and despite some of us reverting it, those who feel that Noivern defeated Zapdos refuse to create a talk page for it before they re-add the trivia point. Thanks. ChE clarinetist (talk) 02:18, 7 March 2016 (UTC)


Hi. The problem is, that if you type "Gen VI" in the search tab, it wil redirect to "Generation VI", but if you type "Gen VII", it wil redirect to "Core series" and not to "Generation VII". (How) Can I change it? And if I cannot, can you do it? Thanks! Lokki (talk) 06:34, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Hello, I hope that Abcboy won't mind me answering this question, but it can easily be done simply by pressing the (redirected from (what you searched)) that's just under the title of the page when you type in a redirect and then you edit that redirect to direct correctly :) I have allready done this to Gen VII but if you see any more you are very free to go ahead and correct them. --Raltseye 07:35, 11 March 2016 (UTC)


When a pokémon is evolving by trade, why does the game location section say, that you can have this pokémon by evolving, while you can have this pokémon only by trade? Lokki (talk) 07:56, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

When you evolve these Pokémon, they have to be traded, but the pre-evolution of the Pokémon still needs to be obtained in a game where it can be obtained. No matter how many copies of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire you have, you can't obtain a Haunter (or a Gengar), so it's clearly not obtainable in those games. Similarly, having multiple copies of X or multiple copies of Y allows you to obtain a Haunter and Gengar, so it has to be available in those games. --Abcboy (talk) 13:49, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Episode template

May I use some of the coding of this template? Thank you! --Mine4017 (talk) 15:31, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Yes, that's fine. --Abcboy (talk) 16:08, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Artificial Pokémon category

Hey, thanks for helping with the new category I created. I added all the Pokémon listed under "known artificial Pokémon" to the category, except for Magearna, which was protected. Can you please add Magearna to the category?


Flarn2006 (talk) 01:51, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Done. --Abcboy (talk) 01:53, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks again! Flarn2006 (talk) 01:55, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Template:Dungeon infobox

Hello I was wondering what about this template? Should it stay as it is or will you redo the latest change? If it will not be altered could you add links to Monster Houses, Traps, Recruiting, Money in that template? Also when we're at it could you add visibility, sight or something like that which will be how many tiles away the player can see in that dungeon ranging from no shadow to two tiles in corridor to one tile in corridor? --Raltseye 19:58, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

I have added the requested links; however, I would prefer additional discussion on the title of the visibility/sight/something parameter before adding it to the template. --Abcboy (talk) 15:31, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

New movie in Hindi

So, Hungama TV has released a promo for the Hindi dub of M03. The movie will be named Unown का तहलका Unown ka Tehelka (Transaltion: Panic of/about Unown) and will air on 16th April. Should the South Asia page be updated with this information or should we wait until the movie airs? You can watch the promo here. → PikaTepig999 11:25, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Of course the page should be updated when the promo has aired Abcboy otherwise the page will become outdated. So can you please add that info to that page? --Yash Sen 11:32, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
Also, in the Trivia section of that page in that line "They also made Pokéraps for the Orange League and Johto League which featured live-action sequences and worked as promos for the upcoming seasons of Pokémon.", can you also add there "They also made a Pokérap for Hoenn League which works as a promo for season 7."? Also in that line "Hungama TV made a Pokéraps as an ending theme for the anime series and the movies." can you remove that "s" from that word "Pokéraps" since only one such Pokérap was made for ending theme? --Yash Sen 11:39, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks once again! --Yash Sen 14:24, 27 March 2016 (UTC)
Here is the movie logo. Can you please add this logo too to South Asia page? Thanks in advance! --Yash Sen 07:10, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks once again! --Yash Sen 07:37, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Gen III cry order

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that the list I made of the way cries are organized is not exclusive to the leaked beta; it's actually the same in the final version of all Gen 3 games, and I doublechecked via the driver test menu in the final version of Ruby. The two unused cries also remain in the final versions of RS and FRLG (I do not know how to confirm if they are in Emerald, however, since I do not know if that game still has the sound test). So, I think they should perhaps be on the index number page or on their own page, though I can see them remaining where you moved them so long as it's reworded to reflect that. What do you think? - MK (t/c) 16:26, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

I think rewording it would be fine. IMO it's a relic of development that doesn't really fit with the index number list and isn't quite notable for its own page. It being the same in FRLGE isn't really an issue as we generally don't note that unused content wasn't removed in later games of the same generation. --Abcboy (talk) 16:34, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
Alright, thanks, I'll get on that - MK (t/c) 16:42, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Korean ending

Hey Abcboy! Will you be happy to mainspace this? I found some footage at [2] (the 2nd video on the page) confirming the name and artist. Thanks!--Wowy(토크) 06:00, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Done. By any chance, are any of the other staff listed in the video (composer, etc.)? --Abcboy (talk) 06:21, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! And nope, only the artist --Wowy(토크) 06:23, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

New Page

Since Maverick Nate is apparently on hiatus, I wanted to know if you could take a look at this and tell me whether it can be mainspaced or not. Thank you. MannedTooth (Talk) 18:30, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

You may also want to check for cards from different expansions by the same artist (such as Chikorita (BREAKpoint 1) and Fennekin (Awakening Psychic King 9)) to add. Unfortunately, I'm not the well versed in the TCG, so you would be better off contacting another admin (perhaps glik) rather than me. You should also add {{mainspace}} at the top so that the Editorial Board can eventually consider it. --Abcboy (talk) 19:15, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
Sure, I'll contact him, I know this list isn't complete yet, but I've added every card on the wiki that mentions it by researching "narrative". Thanks for your advice. MannedTooth (Talk) 19:18, 2 April 2016 (UTC)


The plural of Ninja is Nija, Ninjas is not a word unless it has an 's to convey possession! Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 15:20, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Moves (especially for categories) must be approved by the Editorial Board. Both terms are correct, though I will have to check as to which term is used in the games and anime. --Abcboy (talk) 15:46, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Both the description of Mahogany Town in HGSS and a character in XY099 said Ninka as the plural form. Ninjas is an americanisation. Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 16:00, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Season 7 on Hungama TV

So they have started airing the episodes of S07 in a 8 PM time slot from the episode AG080. Can you please update the South Asia page with this info? --Yash Sen 18:16, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Add a line like "The channel changed the airing time of the show to a 8:00 pm timeslot". → PikaTepig999 09:18, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
The channel has return the anime to the 6:30 PM timeslot. Should the page be changed immediately or should we wait until the season airs, so that if there are any more changes in the timings then all can be added at once?? → PikaTepig999

Hey, now that M03 has premiered on Hungama TV, the page should be updated with this info. The complete name of the movie is "Pokémon The Movie - Unown ka Tehelka (Hindi: Unown का तहलका)". Again , the Japanese version was used, opening and ending themes along with some other scenes were skipped. Please update with this info. Thanks in advance. → PikaTepig999 09:18, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

But the first 3 sec of the opening theme was however aired. So please add this info too in the page. Thanks in advance! --Yash Sen 11:30, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

The season has aired with episodes from AG085 started airing back in 6:30 pm time slot and they skipped AG084. Can you update the page with this? Also according to this, Hungama TV will complete the initial run of season 7 with AG092 on 28th April this Thursday. It would be better if you add this info too with the other info together so that you will not need to edit the page again so add it in past tense only. --Yash Sen 18:11, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Also, they have made some changes in the dubbing script from AG086 which are the change in the narrator's voice, change in Nurse Joy's dialogues and change in Team Rocket's motto, etc. Can you add this info too? --Yash Sen 18:17, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks once again! :) --Yash Sen 17:33, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

List of [insert nationality] Pokémon themes

Hello I was wondering if we are supposed to add transcriptions for all languages that does not use the latin alphabet like Greek, Russian, and Hindi because only Hindi has transcribed lyrics? So should the other as well have that? Also if they do wouldn't it be more reasonable to add the native alphabet first then transcribed to latin letters and then translated? --Raltseye 14:59, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Yes, adding them as hovertext should be fine. Regarding Hindi—from what I understand, the Indian network uses the Latin alphabet to transcribe Hindi, which is why the Hindi itself is placed after it. --Abcboy (talk) 16:12, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
