baby text follow up

So, the new updated baby template you mentioned me does not support this card. Thought I'd let you know! :) MannedTooth (Talk) 13:40, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

UPDATE: It won't support any of the babies of Aquapolis. MannedTooth (Talk) 14:11, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
I have addressed this issue one year ago Sunday, and we will get to it. MaverickNate 15:02, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

card infobox print

Shouldn't the card shown in the info box of this card be the most recent one (EX Power Keepers) ? It has the same code in the same order than this one, which shows the most recent one. How do you do that? MannedTooth (Talk) 15:55, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

It cycles on a timer. glikglak 17:10, 15 September 2016 (UTC)


Hi. I was just wondering for the cards from the Expansion Pack 20th Anniversary subset, are we redirecting to the original Base Set article or creating a new article? — Ruixiang95 20:53, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Only reprints are ever redirected to their original article. If the card features any gameplay-differing differences, then it is considered a brand new card. If the card plays the same as its retro print, then it should be redirected to the Original Era card, as it is only then considered a reprint. MaverickNate 20:59, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
Actually, may I know the difference between Charmeleon (Base Set 24) and Charmeleon (Expansion Pack 20th 10)? And if so, may I request to have a check on the CP6 articles I recently created and delete accordingly? — Ruixiang95 21:04, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
All the articles you've created so far are fine. Kakuna has a different attack effect for Stiffen, causing the attack to play differently. Mew has an Ability instead of a Pokémon Power, which makes the Expansion Pack 20th Anniversary Mew interact with cards like Garbodor while the Original Era Mew would not. Koffing is Psychic type and not Grass type, making it interact with different cards' Weaknesses and Resistances. Charmeleon's attack damages are different. Honestly I'm expecting there to be far fewer exact reprints than brand new cards. I was actually pretty surprised when I looked at Caterpie and realized they were the same. MaverickNate 21:13, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
So apparently, only Caterpie and Weedle are exact reprints. I have make a mistake on Hitmonchan (Expansion Pack 20th 60) and realized that they are two different cards, because of the HP and attack damages. I may have accidentally blanked the article, and I apologize for any inconvenience caused. — Ruixiang95 04:26, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
Not a problem! Thanks for seeing something happen with the other cards and coming to me to ask about it! MaverickNate 09:19, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

TCG vs tt template

So, while I understand the uses of when we link a Ppkémon to its TCG card page when talking about the card name, but can you explain this edit ? I would like to know why we shouldn't use the tt template instead, it makes it read as Search your deck for a card that evolves from this Pokémon which is more than accurate. Anyway, I've undone this one too in case it should stay like it was. I'm waiting for your input on this ! :) MannedTooth (Talk) 01:17, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

A card that evolves from Vulpix won't only evolve from the specific EX Hidden Legends Vulpix, but any card printed with the name Vulpix. Thus, that reference isn't only talking about that specific card and is linked accordingly. MaverickNate 01:21, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

adding merchandise

Let's say that I want to add merchandise to the page that doesn't have it. For example this one. How shall I proceed? Because I saw that many were missing. MannedTooth (Talk) 00:58, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Find the appropriate Series of merchandise it belongs to, along with any relevant news stories, tweets, and images on Bulbanews and Archives. Post it chronologically with all of those links on the merchandise page, with a paragraph or two that includes all there is to know about the products and any exclusive merch inside them, written in such a way that makes the prose for that section distinct from the ones before it. (That page for this set of tins would be this one.) Give the section any relevant subsections like Promo cards and Product images. MaverickNate 01:28, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
The XY BREAK Series merchandise page is at least 30 products behind, so as with everything, it is preferred slash advised that as many are posted in as few edits as possible rather than adding each individual product one by one. MaverickNate 01:31, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

template modification

This template needs to be updated to accept at least 16 cards (15 current) in order to add every print of this card. MannedTooth (Talk) 15:03, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

You're probably working on this at the very moment, but just to let you know, you forgot a "|" after the line | style="display:none;" |* and so for every line after a 3rd consecutive print (so 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, etc.) MannedTooth (Talk) 20:32, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Viewing articles in a cross-section of categories

Hey man, been awhile. I just started a desk job where I have a fair amount of down time, so I figure I'll do a little work in my free time. Anyway, quick question that I should know the answer to: is there anywhere I can put in two or more categories and see all the article that are in both/all of said categories? Thanks. --Politoed666 21:25, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Hey there! Glad to see you back! From what I can tell, I don't think this exists. I looked into the Special pages too, and don't see anything that looks like it will do what you want. Sorry I can't be any help! MaverickNate 23:46, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
A relatively simple solution would be to do two searches and exclude one from the other. Like search for incategory:"Mythical Pokémon" and then incategory:"Generation VI Pokémon" -incategory:"Mythical Pokémon". Tiddlywinks (talk) 00:05, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Quick question!

Hi! I'm fairly new here, and while flipping through random pages to look for things that need editing, I noticed that the image we have for EX Legend Maker Aron has some sort of funky scuff mark (maybe pen?) near the 20 for Headbutt's damage. Is there a way we could get a better image? Is there someone else I should notify to get a better picture? (If I had the card I would scan it myself but alas...) I'm still finding my way around here so thanks for any help! Terra Antiqua (talk) 21:54, 7 October 2016 (UTC)


I mean, I don't want to direct traffic to the TCG without your consent :P ..but I knew about the hatnote, which I think is just fine for those who type in "Evolution" and expect to land at the TCG expansion. And it's really hard for me to imagine how someone typing in "Evolutions" is that much more likely to look for the concept rather than the expansion that a hatnote is the way to go. I was actually torn between a disambiguation and a redirect to the TCG (and another hatnote there). So, are you really sure? Or is there maybe something more to it, something I'm missing? Nescientist (talk) 23:11, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

I try my best to avoid disambiguations, so I've redirect Evolutions to the expansion and added new hatnotes there. MaverickNate 08:16, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

Hyper Rares.

Just a quick question to be sure. For the purpose of the Full Art card page, the new Hyper Rares count as Full Arts, right? Or will they be considered something else? Metalizard (talk) 19:13, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Yeah. I think it is fine to say that they are. MaverickNate 22:48, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

SM001 Sun & Moon

Hi. Just wondering if I'm good to go or would you want to upload the images before I do the edits. Just to inform you, I have already done ALL the Pokémon (excluding Trainer/GX/Rare Secret/Rare Ultra/Hyper Rare), all I need is to press submit for all of them. And for Cosmog, Cosmoem, and Eevee having the Collection Sun and Collection Moon Pokédex entries differences and the English entries having use the Pokémon Sun Dex entries. Should I put as "Sun & Moon/Collection Sun prints" or "Sun & Moon print"? And they have made changes of "his or her hand" into "their" hand, should I just leave it with "their" on the article? — Ruixiang95 09:24, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

I won't be getting to scans anytime soon, so they are good to go as is. Change all instances to "their" since that is what is written as the cardtext now. Follow the precedence listed on Slurpuff (Generations RC20); list "Pokédex entry (Sun & Moon print)" and "Pokédex entry (Collection Moon print)". MaverickNate 17:32, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
I know we will be diverting to Category:Holofoil cards soon, so should I add that or Category:Holographic cards now to the Holofoil of Sun & Moon. Currently doing the items so I thought I asked. — Ruixiang95 01:55, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
Category:Holographic cards is fine for now. MaverickNate 02:46, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
So should I leave Nest Ball and Rotom Dex in the Holofoil category currently, because if not, that would make Holofoil be an empty Category article. Also, is the four Rare Secret ITEMS in Sun & Moon just Holographic and Secret or Full art as well since I saw Glik putting Full art in also? Thanks. — Ruixiang95 03:08, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
Either is fine. One of the categories is going to end up empty eventually anyway. Sun & Moon secret items are Holo, Secret, and Full Art. MaverickNate

Pokemon-GX page

Hey there. I don't know if you've seen my last response in my Talk page but I just finished the page: Pokémon-GX. Check it to see if everything is okay. Metalizard (talk) 18:08, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

It looks really good! Thank you! I appreciate the work you put into the TCG here. MaverickNate 21:12, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
Cool, man. Glad you liked it. btw, I wanted to ask you about something else. The last time I updated the Full Art card page, I added the recent UR Double Colorless Energy from SM1+ to the list, however, first, I don't know if it is supposed to be considered a Full Art and second, if it is, I'm guessing the template has to be updated (or there's a way to do it and I don't know) cause I can't make it to show the entry for the card properly (namely, it shows the fire energy symbol by default instead of the colorless energy symbol after the 'E'). I ended up hiding the entry in the code for now. Metalizard (talk) 21:45, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
I'll look into it sometime soon. MaverickNate 06:42, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Note that needs to be modified

These cards' foot note must be modified to make the last sentence (the one in parantheses) italic. MannedTooth (Talk) 20:32, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

2016 World Championships Decks

I created them in my usersapce, as I wasn't sure whether I should mainspace them without pictures. Also, I don't know whether it should be "Bebe" or "Bebe Deck". I was hoping maybe you could continue from there!? Nescientist (talk) 13:38, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

To make life easier, and because I believe those are by TPCi (I'm new to this), you (or any other TCG staff) might be able to grab images from here: 1 2 3 4.
Also, links to the created pages are here: 1 2 3 4. Thanks. Nescientist (talk) 21:40, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
I'll do that right away! Good job on the deck pages! Sorry I missed this. Keep up the good work! MaverickNate 23:07, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Sun & Moon Expansion 3

If it's okay with you, I have made a page about To Have Seen The Battle Rainbow/Darkness That Consumes Light. There was a picture with the card packs, with one featuring Ho-Oh, the other featuring Necrozma. It also shows the release date for its debut in Japan, along with the number 150. I'm not sure if that's the total amount of the cards in the set.

Also, I saw said picture online.--Hamfart 17:55, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Nice! Thank you! MaverickNate 23:07, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Regarding TCG cards that have different effects in different languages

Hello, Maverick Nate. I have noticed that several cards like this Grimer have differences between the English and Japanese release. I was wondering if it would be alright to create a category to note these cards. --Super goku (talk) 22:26, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

I think that a category for now would be acceptable. MaverickNate 22:29, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

TFG conditions.

Not sure if it's good idea to link Duel figures to that article, since paralysis works differently than in TFG (for reference, it now always chooses the smallest non-miss piece and turns it into Miss; this will affect all instances of that piece like the four dodges on Metagross). Should I add the conditions/markers that are in Duel or would that be better suited for a separate article? Eridanus (talk) 22:48, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Looking at it, I think a separate page at Special Conditions (Duel) would be better suited for this situation. Otherwise, I'm not the person taking charge of this side game, given that I haven't ever played it, I'm simply filling in the jname and jtrans for attacks and Abilities. It may be worth asking MisterE13 for his opinion, as he is the user taking charge of this side game. That being said, if you could add the jname and jtrans for Dodge and Miss going forward, I would appreciate it. They are |jname=ミス|jtrans=Miss for Miss and |jname=かわす|jtrans=Dodge for Dodge.
