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

It is currently 3:13 EST. If daylight savings time is in effect in the United States, it is actually 4:13 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 )

[1]

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)

KTCG

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)

Showcase

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)


Redirecting

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)


Trade

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?

Thanks.

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)

Ninja

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)

Pokemovies on Disney XD India

Today Disney XD India is going to air aired M01 and M02 of Pokemon. Can you update the page with this? --Yash Sen 06:42, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

They also aired the movies as same as how Hungama aired the movies. Disney XD also used the same movie logo which Hungama used in movies and they also skipped many scenes including openings and endings in movies and they also aired the original Japanese version of the movies. Can you please update the page with all this? Also there are some more corrections also in that page which should be done. One is in the XY series paragraph where From the middle of the season, Hungama aired the episodes a a part of a block named Pokemon Full On. change that a to as. Also in Trivia, remove that line Pokémon BW: Rival Destinies, Pokémon BW: Adventures in Unova and Pokémon XY: Kalos Quest are the only seasons which have not debuted in South Asia. and also it would be better if in S07 para you change that the narrator's voice to the voice cast for the narrator. Can you please do these following corrections also please? Thanks for all these edits in Advance! --Yash Sen 10:53, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
I will change this as soon as I have time. --Abcboy (talk) 01:39, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Okay! --Yash Sen 08:25, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks once again in advance! :) --Yash Sen 08:26, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Four days ago when will you add them? --Yash Sen 06:37, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

When will you do these edits? 8 days ago? --Yash Sen 15:18, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Its okay and thanks once again! --Yash Sen 08:01, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

So Hungama TV has announced that M04 will air on 28th May 2016 at 1 pm on Hungama as Khatre Ka Jungle. Can you update the page with this also? You can watch the promo here. --Yash Sen 11:00, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Also can you add the movie logo too in the article? --Yash Sen 15:03, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Added. --Abcboy (talk) 21:21, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

I was looking at the SA page, and I noticed something, only the first movie name in Hindi is called Pokemon The Movie, the second, third and fourth, ones are just Pokemon Movie. Could you correct this? → PikaTepig999 13:20, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Fixed. --Abcboy (talk) 14:13, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! I just forget to tell you to add this Hindi Devnagari name of the movie 4 (Hindi: खतरे का जंगल) after the movie 4 line. Sorry for that but can you add this too? --Yash Sen 15:40, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks once again! I'll let you know when there will be more updates. --Yash Sen 09:35, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

I saw an advertisement on the Disney Channel as well as Hungama where it talked about Pokémon 3-D toys and cards being distributed along with the breakfast cereal Chocos. As a glimpse of this advertisement has also seen by Pratik_12, I would now request to add it on the Pokémon in South Asia page under 'Pokémon merchandise' section. Thank you.

Added. Sorry for the wait. --Abcboy (talk) 23:58, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Blaziken Pokkén Page ready for Mainspace?

Well, I can't think of anything major to add to this page, so I think it might be ready for the mainspace, though it maybe a little "rough around the edges" and I can't find any information on the VA, plus it still needs some screenshots I guess. This is the first of many pages I've got for the Pokkén roster, but the others aren't as complete as Blaziken's at the moment. Thank you for your time. ----NateVirus(Talk|Contributions) 05:28, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Looks good. I'll note that Bulbapedia generally doesn't italicize the titles of games for whatever reason and that the page could definitely use a screenshot of Mega Blaziken. Unfortunately, I don't really have the authority to approve mainspacing pages; it might be a good idea to bring it up with a member of the Editorial Board so that they can discuss it at some point. --Abcboy (talk) 16:08, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Alright, thank you for the help/advice! :D I'll try to run it by them. ----NateVirus(Talk|Contributions) 19:42, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
Oh and I forgot to mention, about the game titles being italicized, I saw that on some of the character pages for the Pokémon in the Super Smash Bros series so I thought it was alright. :/ But still, thank you very much for the advice! :) ----NateVirus(Talk|Contributions) 19:49, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

You realize that I was quoting the Beeheeyem/Meowth, right?

You deleted:

And the reason Ash & Team Rocket were unaffected is that "idiots are hard to hypnotize". 

I watched the episode, and that's what Beeheeyem/Meowth said, word for word. If that's sutill a problem, can you word it better? Unowninator (talk) 21:04, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

What you added was relatively informal compared to the summary that was already there. If the detail and quote are really relevant to the plot of the episode, something like The Beheeyem state that the reason Ash and Team Rocket were unaffected is because "idiots are hard to hypnotize". might be more appropriate. --Abcboy (talk) 22:09, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
Done, thanks. - unsigned comment from Unowninator (talkcontribs)


Need some image help

I am having problems with Giratina's picture on my new Appendix:Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire walkthrough/Soaring Legendaries walkthrough guide. Could help figure out and fix this problem? -Tyler53841 (talk) 22:56, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Fixed it. Giratina has form differences, so you have to specify which artwork you want in the template. --Abcboy (talk) 23:03, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. -Tyler53841 (talk) 23:04, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Alola origin

Now that you have added that Alola is based on Hawaii in the Design concept section it is now redundant since that is also in the intro. Could you please remove it from the intro? --Raltseye 12:41, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Simpson wiki

Hello, wouldn't it be better to link the Simpsons links on List of references to Pokémon in popular culture to WikiSimpsons instead of Wikipedia since we are indirectly affiliated with them through NIWA? Just thought I'd have your opinion on the matter. If not, why not? --Raltseye 14:18, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, it should be fine. Just make sure to note it in the edit summary. --Abcboy (talk) 15:52, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
We don't have a template for that now do we? Should you create one or do I have link manually? --Raltseye 16:22, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
Just link it manually. They aren't a proper NIWA member, so a link template isn't needed. --Abcboy (talk) 18:59, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Updates to the South Asia page

So, the South Asia page needs a few updates.

M04 aired today. Again based on Japanese version, opening and ending skipped, some other scenes cut too. Also, many dubbing errors: Mispronouncations, and Japanese voices of Pokemon.

In the top of the anime section, where channels are listed, Disney XD India should also be listed as Pokémon movies have had many reruns on that channel which is Hungama TV's sister channel.

Also about the toys distributed with Kellogs Chocos, there are 3D models of Pikachu, Kanto Started and Jigglypuff. This info if needed can be added to the merchandise section.

These are all I can think of for now. Please update that page. Thanks in advance. → PikaTepig999 09:05, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi, there are some more bits of info about that page, but I dont know if they are important or not; can you help me? A Web-Streaming/ Video on Demand service by Viacom 18, which was launched recently, offers Pokemon as one of its shows for kids. It is available in English language only. The first season is completely available, along with some episodes of the first and third seasons. Now, this is the first time Pokemon has been available for web streaming n India, albeit in English. Should this information be added to the South Asia page? You can check it out here.
Also, Kellogs Chocos now offers Pokemon Evolution Cards with its smaller packs, the merchandise section should be updated right? 10:16, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
Disney XD also aired M03. Its now like they will keep on airing Pokemovies forever the version which aired on Hungama. Can you update the page with this also? --Yash Sen 13:20, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! --Yash Sen 08:29, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

New Chinese names of Gen I Pokémon

Are we allowed to edit the Pokémon in Generation I in List of Chinese Pokémon names and their respective pages based on the official press release by Nintendo Hong Kong? — Ruixiang95 16:07, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

For the list itself, that's being worked on at User:神奇超龍/Names. For the individual pages, it's fine but the original name must remain on the page on the line after the new name. Additionally, there are proposals for changing the way we display Chinese, so it might be better to wait. --Abcboy (talk) 16:13, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Air Continent

Hey abcboy, I was wondering about the artwork that was posted up for Baram Town. According to this website, the map is of Air Continent (風の大陸), but what you're saying is that that's Baram Town. Can I get some confirmation/clarification regarding that? Thanks! ht14 19:14, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Baram Town is located on the Air Continent. The image was revealed before Baram Town's name was known, but the image is of only Baram Town. Labeling that image as Air Continent is like labeling that first picture of Lumiose as Kalos. --Abcboy (talk) 19:56, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
Ah k, fair enough. So the website's not entirely accurate about it then, I suppose? ht14 21:30, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, we didn't know the town's name until after the game had come out. --Abcboy (talk) 22:02, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Template edit request

Several days ago, images of the trash cans and different colored flowers from X and Y were uploaded to Bulbapedia, so I wondered if those sprites/models/whatever could be added to {{Catch/entry6}}. Seeing how you seem to have updated the said template in the past as well, I decided to ask you if you could help. I'd be very pleased if this was possible. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:13, 12 June 2016 (UTC) PS. It also bugs me that the Gen VI template uses the Gen V surfing sprites. The male Trainer surfing model from X and Y has been on Bulbapedia for months already, but I can understand if we should wait for the female model to be uploaded as well before that part of the template is updated.

"The themes in other languages"

Since you seem to have a better understanding than I do, could you look at the following list of articles and see which pages need changes? I think it would be better for consistency. The list is as follows: Pokémon Theme (OP 1) & Pokémon Theme (OP 17), Pokémon Johto, Born to Be a Winner, Believe in Me, Battle Frontier, We Will Be Heroes, Rival Destinies, and It's Always You and Me --Super goku (talk) 20:57, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Basically, the singers aren't trivial, but are irrelevant to our page in English. Things involving multiple dubs do fit on the page. --Abcboy (talk) 21:06, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Korean names

I see that you added international names for the newly-revealed Pokémon, except for Korean names.

They are as follows:

  • Tapu Koko = 카푸꼬꼬꼭 Kapukkokkokkok
  • Charjabug = 전지충이 Jeonjichung'i
  • Vikavolt = 투구뿌논 Tuguppunon
  • Drampa = 할비롱 Halbirong
  • Bruxish = 치갈기 Chigalgi
  • Cutiefly = 에블리 Ebeulli
  • Togedemaru = 토게데마루 Togedemaru
  • Rockruff and Komala - unknown, as of yet, unfortunately.

Source, in case there's any doubt. I hope that you can add them as soon as possible. --Maxim (talk) 17:41, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

I've added them all along with their name origins; I couldn't figure out Vikavolt's or Cutiefly's though. Would you be able to help with them? --Abcboy (talk) 18:17, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Transliteration or Transcription?

Hello could you tell me the difference between Transliteration and Transcription because I have been using Transcription for Russian Pokémon names and you used Transliteration for the new Pokémon. Which one should we use and why? --Raltseye prata med mej 21:58, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

transliterate: to write words or letters in the characters of another alphabet
transcription: the act or process of making a written, printed, or typed copy of words that have been spoken
--Abcboy (talk) 23:04, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
Then transcription is more appropriate in the Russian case. Could you then please change the word on the Pokémon's pages? --Raltseye prata med mej 00:26, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
The Russian names are not spoken, they are written. Additionally, transcription has no connotation of the alphabet used to write the letters being changed. Transcription refers to when something already in auditory form, such as a speech, is written down. --Abcboy (talk) 00:35, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
No but the English name is read and then that is written down with cyrillic letters. If the Russian name were to come from how the English name is spelled that would be transliteration, but it's not, it's from how the name is pronounced, that makes it transcription. --Raltseye prata med mej 00:49, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
Allow me to elaborate this, for instance Tapu Koko is spelled Тапу Коко Tapu Koko in Russian, that is transliteration from the English alfabet letter for letter, but Uxie for instance is spelled Юкси Yuksi that is taken from it's pronounciation, not it's spelling which would then be Уксиэ Uksie. Isn't then Uxie transcribed and Tapu Koko transliterated? --Raltseye prata med mej 17:17, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
I'll correct the Alola Pokémon pages when I get a chance. --Abcboy (talk) 17:41, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Pokémon Go Locations

I have downloaded Pokémon Go, and I would like with permission to start a page (under my name) to keep a track of stuff for Adelaide, South Australia (where I live). I think this would help out a bit. And it is games like these that I'm glad to live in a small city like Adelaide as opposed to a huge one like Sydney. I pity Pokémon fans there, but I envy all the possible Dream Eater (Kingdom Hearts species, not the move) pics that can be taken there. UxieLover1994 (talk) 05:32, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

It's fine for you to create a page in your userspace; however, it will be up to the Editorial Board as to whether it's notable for the mainspace. --Abcboy (talk) 15:09, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Movie 5 on Disney XD

So M05 is set to premier in India but this time on Disney XD not on Hungama this Friday as Soul Dew Ka Raaz: Latias and Latios. Can you update the SA page with this? --Yash Sen 09:08, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Updated. --Abcboy (talk) 15:09, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! Unfortunately, Disney XD skipped the airing of the movie today for unknown reasons. Hence now I think the info about movie 5 should be either hided or should be removed from SA page. --Yash Sen 07:46, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks once again! I will let you know when there will be any updates about the movie. --Yash Sen 14:13, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

So this time its conformed that M05 is coming on Hungama TV in 31st July 2016 since they released a promo for the movie this time. So now I think the info should be unhide and should be updated by this info. You can watch the promo here. --Yash Sen 11:11, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Also, add the movie logo too. --Yash Sen 12:29, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Sorry to forget about this also add this Hindi Devanagari name of the movie (Hindi: सोल डीउ का राज़: Latias एंड Latios) after the movie info. --Yash Sen 16:17, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! --Yash Sen 16:45, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

So, the movie aired today. Again Japanese version, except opening and ending no other scene were cut this time. Can you update the page with this? --Yash Sen 11:21, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Updated. --Abcboy (talk) 15:28, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks once again! --Yash Sen 15:30, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

Rockin' Lock

Hello, do we really need a separate page for Rockin' Lock? If not, could you then please make this page into a redirect? --Raltseye prata med mej 00:03, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Two things about Mystery Dungeon

Hello could you delete this page as it is a talk page to a redirect, secondly could you take a look on this template I just made to see if it is appropriate for use or not or if further changes are necessary. --Raltseye prata med mej 15:23, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Regarding the first, in order for merges to be properly performed, a admin or higher has to perform the move so that the history is maintained.
Regarding the template, there are a few redirects and disambigs in there that should be fixed. In addition, the template would be less repetitive if it was grouped by game, rather than by location. --Abcboy (talk) 18:32, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
Okay, good.
How about now? I've redone it a bit? --Raltseye prata med mej 19:11, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
I've have redone a bit more, how about now? --Raltseye prata med mej 18:40, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
There are still a few redirects and disambiguation pages, but otherwise it looks fine. --Abcboy (talk) 18:46, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
There all done now. Mainspace? --Raltseye prata med mej 19:23, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
I've brought it up with the other staff. I'll get back to you as soon as a decision is made. I'll note that Spinda's Café isn't technically in Treasure Town, it's in the Crossroads just outside it. Similarly, Chimecho Assembly and Croagunk's Swap Shop are in Wigglytuff Guild, which is also outside Treasure Town. --Abcboy (talk) 05:41, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Gates to Infinity map

I was planning to upload the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity world map to the Archives, since it is available in The Spriters Resource, but there are three variations of the map (link). Could you look at it and tell me which one should I upload or upload it yourself, if you want to? Also, what should be the name of the file? There is no consistency in the Mystery Dungeon maps' names. I think File:Mist Continent PMD Gates to Infinity or something like that would be fine. In addition, if you are going to upload, could you run it on PNGMonster first? Thanks (and sorry about my english). --RafaelGN (talk) 21:55, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

I've brought it up with the other staff. I'll get back to you as soon as a decision is made. --Abcboy (talk) 05:41, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Some Pokemon pages able to be moved by ordinary users

I've recently noticed that while most Pokemon species pages are unable to be moved (by ordinary users at least), there are a few that have that option available. The ones that I've noticed are Diggersby, Scatterbug, Espurr, Aromatisse, Slurpuff, Hawlucha, Sliggoo, and Goodra, though there might be more. VioletPumpkin (talk) 04:41, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

It appears as though this has been dealt with by Kogoro. If you happen to notice any more, feel free to leave a message with which pages need protection. --Abcboy (talk) 15:28, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

List of [language] Pokémon names

Hello, I was wondering why the Lists of other languages Pokémon names have dark colors so that the hoenn box becomes inreadable while the List of Pokémon by National Pokédex number have the colors in light so that you actually can read that? Take List of Chinese Pokémon names#.23302 - .23350 Sableye - Milotic this for example, one cannot read what it says in the the header, while one can do that List of Pokémon by National Pokédex number#Generation III here. Why? --Raltseye prata med mej 08:43, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

No idea why it was like that, but I've changed it to use the light colors. --Abcboy (talk) 15:28, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. --Raltseye prata med mej 12:40, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Missing Dutch and Portuguese names

On your list of In other languages sections on your user page, there are some names listed on the Dutch and Portuguese Sun and Moon websites that are missing. Totem Pokémon: |pt=Pokémon Totem; SOS battle: |nl=SOS-gevechten |pt=Batalhas SOS; Captain: |nl=Aanvoerder |pt=Capitão. --Mine4017 (talk) 17:32, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I've added them to the tables. --Abcboy (talk) 01:15, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Chinese games

I am pretty sure that the text of Chinese Sun/Moon is in Mandarin. The language choice doesn't let you choose between Mandarin or Cantonese, it just differentiates between Traditional and Simplified characters, probably meaning that both versions use the same dialect (Cantonese never uses simplified Hanzi, by the way). There is no such thing as "neutral" Chinese, so I think it's safe to assume that the games use Standard Mandarin, for it being the most widely understood written variant of Chinese. The fact that the games are distributed in Hong Kong doesn't change anything, because they're still in Mandarin (just like the games distributed in Poland or Russia are in English, rather than Polish or Russian). So, in my opinion Cantonese can't be considered as a game language. I know that the same names are now used in Cantonese context (I even know there were protests), but since the games are in Mandarin, I think only Mandarin transcriptions should be put in the list, as it is dedicated to in-game languages (that's why we don't put Russian, Thai or pre-SM Chinese names there). I don't want to sound like an expert, though, cause I am not. Perhaps Chaolong will clear things up better. --Maxim (talk) 15:17, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

The Sun/Moon announcement video has Ishihara speaking in both Mandarin and Cantonese (which isn't particularly strong evidence, but it shows that they aren't completely ignoring Cantonese). I think the comparison to Polish/Russian isn't particularly apt; it's a lot more like Latin American Spanish/Canadian French. In both of those regions, the Castilian Spanish/European French game translations have been used for the last few generations, and we therefore generally mark those translations as unadorned "French" and "Spanish". Also, very few video games are in written Cantonese; most games intended for a Cantonese audience still use vernacular Chinese. In conclusion, although the games are skewed towards Mandarin, the same games are played and read in Cantonese, which makes it a "game language" as much as Latin American Spanish and Canadian French. --Abcboy (talk) 05:03, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
There is no such thing as Cantonese text or Mandarin text, Sun/Moon is will be released in both Traditional and Simplified Chinese. Mainland China uses Simplified characters and read in Mandarin, Taiwan uses Traditional characters and read in Mandarin, while Hong Kong uses Traditional characters and read in Cantonese, also there is no such thing as Standard Mandarin (or Standard Cantonese). There is an unofficial type of text that writes in the way Cantonese is spoken, however it still uses either traditional or simplified characters, and currently there is no (or a very very low number) of games uses that unofficial type of text. Ironically the games actually wont be (or highly unlikely) to be distributed in Mainland China... so does this mean adding Simplified is redundant? Also Hong Kong has pretty much aired all episodes of the anime and movie (up until XY&Z and M19), so it is highly likely that the future Sun/Moon anime (if any) will probably be aired in Hong Kong (& Taiwan) as well, hence it will probably be wise to add them in now. Also, there was an open letter from Nintendo stating their understanding for their negligence of the Cantonese language (the Pikachu incident), hence meaning that the text in the game is indeed meant to be read in Cantonese as well. I don't want to sound rude, apologies if I did, but there is always a misunderstanding for Cantonese/Mandarin/Traditional/Simplified being all mixed up, and I hope I helped clearing it up. --  Tsanger | 留言  08:36, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Z-Moves

Thanks for adding/fixing the languages there. (I guess it should be official policy for anyone to look at your userpage before creating a new page.) That said, does putting {{mainspace|status=complete}} on a user page not automatically allow anyone to improve it as if it were in mainspace already (judging from your edit summaries)? I've always assumed it implicitely did. Nescientist (talk) 15:14, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

Generally, most people are fine with other users editing their draft pages. I know that some users are a bit more touchy about their draft pages, though, especially pages that are still incomplete. Since the mainspace template states "Any content changes should be brought up on the talk page for this article", which doesn't explicitly grant any user to edit the page, most of my draft pages have {{User:Abcboy/Edit}} so that explicit permission is granted for most edits. --Abcboy (talk) 15:22, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. I totally understand it for incomplete pages; if you have something on your mind you want to add at a later date, you wouldn't want anyone to interfere/go in another direction. But if you say it's complete, you basically want it mainspaced that way, and then I believe the article should be treated as if it were in mainspace already. Not totally important, but (unless I'm missing something) you may consider to change the wording/policy at some point. Nescientist (talk) 15:40, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
Because of the template on the top of the page, I was also hesitant to edit the page as I do understand that some users don't like their draft page being touched. The Cantonese romanisation for Gigavolt Havoc should be Jūnggihk Fuhkdahk Kwòhnglèuihsím and Inferno Overdrive should be Chīukèuhng Gihkhaahn Baauyìhmdáan. Some of the romanisations on your user page are also incorrect, but because they are located on your user page, I didn't want to edit it without your consent. Rotom Pokédex should be Loktokmóuh Tòuhgaam (Cantonese) / Luòtuōmǔ Tújiàn (Mandarin), Poké Ride should be Poké Kèhhàhng (or Bóuhó Kèhhàhng). We are currently unsure if 寶可/寶可夢 would be pronounced Poké/Pokémon or Bóuhó/Bóuhómuhng (Cantonese) / Bǎokě/Bǎokěmèng (Mandarin) (I am aware of the current Bulbapedia policy romanising it as Poké/Pokémon... FYI during Nintendo's national championships, it was pronounced Jīnglìhng Bóuhómuhng/Jīnglíng Bǎokěmèng (精靈寶可夢/精灵宝可梦) not Jīnglìhng Pokémon/Jīnglíng Pokémon). Revelation Dance should be Goksíng-jī Móuh. I am still currently adding romanisation to the Cantonese songs... just a bit busy lately... --  Tsanger | 留言  16:37, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
As for pages in my userspace, I've changed them according to what you said. (You are free to edit them if you need to.) I have not touched anything in Abcboy's. Nescientist (talk) 17:48, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
I've corrected the offending romanizations. If anything else is incorrect, feel free to correct it. Regarding 寶可/寶可夢, I want to keep how we romanize/translate Chinese, Japanese, and Korean as consistent as possible, because rendering ポケモン as "Pokémon", 포켓몬 as "Pokémon", and 寶可夢 as "Bóuhómuhng/Bǎokěmèng" isn't ideal. --Abcboy (talk) 05:03, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

I'd like to request an additional "Switch leaders" for Allowances in the Template:Dungeon infobox

I apologize if I seem impatient this week. Anyway, in the Red/Blue Rescue team games, some dungeons like Wish Cave and Buried Relic allow the players to switch leaders mid-dungeon, while others like Murky Cave and Uproar Forest don't. I was about to add that for the dungeons which do myself, but this page is protected so I can't add to the template.

I should mention that this would only be for the Rescue Team games, as the Explorers game don't allow switching leaders at all, while the 3DS games always do as long as you're not playing the story. So anyway, is there anything we can do about this? Thanks. Unowninator (talk) 04:11, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Personally, {{Dungeon infobox}} still needs an overhaul for SMD. If there's anything meaningful about which dungeons can have leader switching (like dungeons initially visited as part of the story vs. dungeons that aren't), mentioning it somewhere once might be better than marking it on each page, like marking that Pokémon can only be recruited by Connection Orb on every SMD dungeon page. --Abcboy (talk) 05:03, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
Only *some* of the post-game dungeons allow it. I know Murky Cave and one of the water ones disallow it. Unowninator (talk) 06:07, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

3 questions

Hello, now I have gathered up 3 questions to throw at you so put on your answering hat.

  1. Is this page (User:Raltseye/List of Russian Pokémon names) not ready for mainspace or is there a specific reason to why it has not been approved?
  2. In List of [language] Pokémon themes with other alphabets like Russian, Bulgarian, and Greek how should we do with the names of singers? Because I've seen at the Bulgarian they have done it lke this Юксел Ахмедов and at Russian the first song is written in latin and the rest in cyrillic only.
  3. Why don't we list Minior's core in other languages at Minior's page?

--Raltseye prata med mej 06:23, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

  1. The Editorial Board needs to approve the mainspacing of most pages. I'd recommend asking a member of the Editorial Board to consider it at their next meeting.
  2. It should be <other alphabet> <English name> like we do with most other languages. I'll note that since the singers may have English names they'd prefer to use, it doesn't necessarily need to match up with the Cyrillic, etc.
  3. Minior's core hasn't been referred to on the official site formally, unlike Oricorio's forms, for example. Things like "Minior has a hard and heavy outer shell with a core inside it." aren't ideal to try and pick out its proper name. When we get names used in-game, we'll be able to pick out its proper name.
--Abcboy (talk) 07:22, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
Minior's core has been referred to in the video.

Well, are you going to add this or not? --Raltseye prata med mej 09:10, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
As it stands, the staff feel that the name isn't used as a proper name for a form of Minior, and as such it won't be added to the page for now. --Abcboy (talk) 16:24, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Template:Translation notice improvement suggestion

Hello, I was thinking of a way that we can improve this template, and that is by making it so that the language specified in the template shows up in the category instead of listing them there by name. That way people can watch the category and see if there's something in their language to translate. What do you think? --Raltseye prata med mej 08:34, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

The headers in categories can only display one letter, so it would only display the first letter of the language, which wouldn't be helpful to new users trying to use the category. You can use the search functionality to generate a similar list, so I don't think it's necessary. --Abcboy (talk) 18:52, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
