Pages

Hey, I have made two pages with my username. They are named User:Seabiscuit2020/Sandbox/Aura trio (Adventures) and User:Seabiscuit2020/Sandbox/Light trio (Adventures) Feel free to edit them. Seabiscuit2020 (talk) 06:49 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Adding transfer-only moves to Pokedex pages

I don't know if I can word this better myself, so I'm going to quote Nescientist.

Sumwun and I believe that, for the moves, an additional section "By transfer from an earlier generation" would be sensible. (Please refer to User talk:Force Fire#Transfer-only moves and ability changes.) The addition of this subsection would enable users to tell what moves <species> can know (in <game/generation>) at one glance.
It's very well possible even Tiddlywinks is underestimating how difficult it is to answer the "know in <game/generation>" question (as much as I initially did). As Sumwun said at the referenced talk page, currently, you'd have to click at least up to 6 links to learnset pages, assuming you already know by heart how transfer works (and that you can't transfer Pokémon from GO by any means, which is what I actually doublechecked). And additionally, you might have to actually neglect irrelevant sections on learnset pages (for example, in USUM/GenVII, Bulbasaur cannot know AncientPower AFAIK). (If there's a faster method, I'd like to hear it.)
And I can't stress how important I think that question is, for I believe it is the central question to that species and learnset pages should be providing an answer to (the use case). It all boils down to that use case: in Tiddlywinks' words, what's the "concern" species/learnset pages try to address? I can't sketch a question/use case that would include "By events" but not "By transfer from a prior generation". (Well, for USUM, I can sketch the question "What moves can <species> with black clover know?", but that's arguably a "special" case, and probably comp-centric*.) I would like to know what you guys think that use case should be.
Regarding Tiddlywinks' comment about this coming from a "specific focus like comp/challenges", I took some time to think about that. Apart from the fact that I don't think the use case is comp-centric even, it is also not subjective, but purely factual, unlike the questions you said "we're never going to do" (and, by the way, I agree we shouldn't). For example, I recall that I once designed a team for my next playthrough, and I was searching possible moves for them. From context, I can recreate it must've been for XY before ORAS came out, because I wanted my Swinub to have a good Special Ground-type STAB and ended up breeding it in an earlier generation so I could teach it Earth Power via move tutor, then transfered (and traded) it to the new save file. I don't think that I ever was, in any point in time, trying to answer a question where I required all current subsections but not "By transfer from a prior generation".
I would like to know what you guys think that use case should be, and whether you think the suggestion subsection is sensible.

Can something be done about Harrychips8 please, he is making pointless edits to pages like SM099, SM100 that we have to undo--BigDocFan (talk) 22:49, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

At what point did Staryu use Illuminate? Playerking95 (talk) 20:19, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

It's mentioned at around 18:41 by the catch race announcer. --Abcboy (talk) 20:33, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Oranguru's Place

Was wondering if you've heard anything back about User:BigDocFan/Oranguru's Place and how User:BigDocFan/Gladion's Umbreon and User:05308/Gladion's_Lycanroc are towards being mainspaced?--BigDocFan (talk) 20:38, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Disney XD India

So Disney XD India completed S09 in 16th Nov 2018 and S10 in 20th Nov 2018. For unknown reasons, they skipped the last episode of AG series AG192. Can you update SA article with this? Thanks in advance! --Yash Sen 12:47, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Ultra Guardians Base

I created my own page for the Ultra Guardians Base and asked Blazingfist for comment, which he said I think it looks good for the most part. It could use a few more images I think but those can be added later. Perhaps most of it could fit on the Pokémon School article, but I wouldn't be opposed to it having its own page either. Feel free to ask a second opinion to abcboy though. What do you think?--BigDocFan (talk) 22:08, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Zeraora

Can you expand the history section of the Zeraora (M21) page? Seabiscuit2020 (talk) 00:03, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

M11 on Hungama

So Hungama TV is releasing M11 for the first time in India as Giratina Aur Ek Mahaa Yodhha. See the promo here. It seems like Hungama will keep releasing new movies of Pokémon in India while Disney XD will keep releasing new seasons, series and episodes. Can you update SA page with this? --Yash Sen 15:00, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

So the movie was aired today. It was English dub this time just like M10 and this time unlike before opening and ending themes of the movie were aired. They used an instrumental version of This is a Beautiful World as the ending of M11. Can you update SA page with this? --Yash Sen 06:40, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
Added. --Abcboy (talk) 01:47, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Updated templates for LGPE

I wrote some code for existing templates, Template:Stats and Template:Pokémon/7 to be updated for LGPE, and left the test results on their respective Discussion pages. They're designed to use an optional field so pages that already have them won't be affected unless the field is included and set accordingly. Please take a look and let me know what you think. TehPerson (talk) 21:04, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Question

What should I need to do if I want to create a new page? What conditions that I need? Like another wiki? Thanks.Thunderpikachu (talk) 14:35, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

You need to be autoconfirmed. --Abcboy (talk) 19:50, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Pokémon XY: Road to Kalos

Hi. Road to Kalos is a special episode aired one week before XY001. It takes place on the plane Ash takes to Kalos and contains original scenes, as well as clips from previous series and a preview for the beginning of the XY series. It is mentioned on V (Volt)'s article. It even has a page on MyAnimeList. Should an article for this special episode be created? Thanks. --RafaelGN (talk) 22:47, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

I think that would be good. Since it sounds like a clip show, I think Road to Kalos would work as a title. --Abcboy (talk) 19:50, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

SSB Reception secton

Hi. Should the Smash Bros. games' articles have the Reception section? I noticed that none of them has. I'd like to add it if they should. Thanks. --RafaelGN (talk) 22:47, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

Feel free to add them. --Abcboy (talk) 19:50, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

©2005-"2016"!

Sorry I missed this out here in Bulbapedia before, but the ending credits of S08, S09 and S10 which aired on Disney XD India had different copyright years credited in the credits. They have the copyright years credited as ©2004-2016, ©2005-2016 and ©2006-2016 in the ending credits of S08, S09 and S10 respectively which is different from the US version. This indicates that Disney India have rights for all seasons in Pokémon up till XYZ (S19). They have also credited in it as "TM and ® are trademarks of Nintendo for Asian territories." which is again different from the US version. Is this notable enough for its inclusion in the SA page? --Yash Sen 15:35, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

All this says is that the dubs were made around 2016, I don't think think that really says much about the seasons through S19. The trademark line being different is also not surprising since TPCi doesn't have a presence in Asia including India. I don't think this reveals anything that isn't stated or implied by the rest of the page. --Abcboy (talk) 19:50, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
I think that all this implies that when the anime was licensed for airing in India, they simply updated the copyright and extended it up till 2016, or that was the year when the (re)licensing happened. It shouldn't necessarily be when the seasons were dubbed. Also, about the Asian territories line , it simply may have been added because these videos should be used in Asian countries only. → PikaTepig999 06:24, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
I would imagine they had re-typed the credits in 2016. --Abcboy (talk) 01:47, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Pokémon movies on Indian cinemas

M20 and Detective Pikachu are releasing in Indian cinemas on Feb 2, 2019 and May 10, 2019 respectively. This is the first time Pokémon movies are releasing in Indian theaters. Can you update SA page with this? Thanks in advance! --Yash Sen 15:56, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Detective Pikachu was expected to be released on the big screen, as it's not an anime movie, but rather a live action one and distributed by a large company like Warner Bros. May 10 is the worldwide release date for Detective Pikachu, after all. But it's nice to see that I Choose You will be getting a limited release as well. If the date is correct and it is releasing on February 2, then it will be the first time a Pokemon anime movie is releasing in theaters. Though, that page is only showing it as being released in English, so maybe we'll have to wait till it airs on television for the regional dubs. → PikaTepig999 06:36, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
That site shows the language of all the upcoming English movies which are yet to be released in India as English only even after they are released in Hindi and other regional languages too. So that doesn't mean that those will be released in English only in cinemas. --Yash Sen 07:12, 1 January 2019 (UTC) Edited 07:51, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
By what I can see, that page is only showing the original language of the movie in the header, and the other dubs during ticketing process. So we may have to wait a little more to find out if the movie is gonna be dubbed. → PikaTepig999 19:30, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
It's been added, please keep me up-to-date on whether or not it'll be shown dubbed. --Abcboy (talk) 01:47, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
It doesn't seem to have been released on 2nd Feb, and now the page shows its release date as to be decided. → PikaTepig999 15:27, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

Unban me from the Forums!

I was just temporarily banned from Bulbagarden Forums for two days for something I posted, forgetting that it could be considered offensive (a Downfall parody). I'm sorry for what I did. Could I get unbanned? I have stuff at the forums I need to attend to. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:44, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

List of Pokemon by availability

Why does C have priority over R? sumwun (talk) 02:17, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

In general, the entries higher up on the key have higher priority than lower ones. For C and R in particular, catching is also the least restrained method of obtaining them, whereas a received Pokémon generally has a fixed level, moveset, and Poké Ball, for example. R should be treated as though "The Pokémon cannot be caught in-game, but..." is implied. --Abcboy (talk) 11:49, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
In that case, why are DPPt Eevee and Pt Porygon listed as R when they can be caught in the Trophy Garden? sumwun (talk) 17:28, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Wishiwashi update

Just to let you know the english nickname of Sun's Wishiwashi has been confirmed as quarter. If you can have a chance to update the image I would appreciate it. -Tyler53841 (talk) 00:52, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Bewear Rescues

Was wondering if you could give some thoughts on User:BigDocFan/Bewear Rescues being mainspaced as a running gag. I asked Force Fire who said The table could be presented a bit better.

Asked Force Fire but as you are online, I was wondering if the following websites are acceptable sources

Some updates for SA page

AG192 is set to air on Disney XD India on 18th January 2019. Also for unknown reasons, the release date for M20 in India is postponed although it's confirmed that it will release on Indian cinemas this year only. Can you make these following updates? --Yash Sen 19:21, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Also, Disney XD India is officially confirmed to be re-branded as Marvel HQ starting from tomorrow 20 Jan 2019 which will continue to air Pokémon. Here is it's logo. Can you add this update as well along with the logo? --Yash Sen 15:29, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

The Avail templates

Can you add these 2 options to the Avail templates?

Symbol Meaning
TC The Pokémon can be caught in-game after somehow interacting with another game.
TE The Pokémon cannot be caught in-game, but an earlier evolutionary stage can be obtained. It can be evolved into the Pokémon in this game by trading.

Examples for the first row include DPPt Spiritomb and Regigigas and ORAS Giratina. Examples for the second row include RBY Golem and GSC Politoed. I think it's important to distinguish these Pokemon from regular C Pokemon and E Pokemon. sumwun (talk) 16:27, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

I don't think the distinction is important enough to note with there being only a few cases where it's needed. Already there are cases where you can only choose one of a Pokémon (like the starters) that I don't think it's worth going into that much detail for. --Abcboy (talk) 18:26, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
I think there are a lot of players who can't trade, and this distinction is important for them. Are there any downsides to adding these options? (and adding a separate option for Pokemon that you can receive only if you don't receive another Pokemon is a real possibility. are there any downsides to that?) sumwun (talk) 16:47, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Cheese Tacos

Cheese Tacos keeps adding Charizard using moves as a major event to SM107's page and they also added speculative major events to SM108's page. - unsigned comment from Playerking95 (talkcontribs)

He has continued to do so, even listing events for future episodes that are unlikely to happen--BigDocFan (talk) 22:32, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Kiawe's Charizard

Considering the recent episode and general talk about the page, do you think it would be possible to mainspace User:Playerking95/Kiawe's Poké Ride Charizard? - unsigned comment from Rahl (talkcontribs)

The staff are discussing it. --Abcboy (talk) 18:23, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

SM107

Should Kiawe's Poké Ride Charizard's moves be listed in the major events section? Playerking95 (talk) 03:26, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Once/if it gets its own page, then would belong there. --Abcboy (talk) 18:23, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Mallow (anime)

Shouldn't the Shaymin Mallow is holding be in an unofficial section on her page like Ash's Larvitar and such, seeing as she's taking care of it until it flies off? It's even with her in the ending. Playerking95 (talk) 16:09, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Wait until it appears next episode, and has a section on the recurring wild Pokémon page or its own page. --Abcboy (talk) 18:23, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Optimizing Images for Maps

Do you have a special way of compressing hi-def map images so they can be uploaded here? We recently have gotten a bunch of maps for SM/USUM done, but we need a method of compressing and resizing them to fit the file size limit. Thanks! TehPerson (talk) 02:52, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

I recommend using PNGGauntlet for compressing them. The Archives dimension limit is strictly 12.5 MP (12,500,000 pixels) so I would resize them to make sure the dimensions (width times height) is less than that before you compress them further. --Abcboy (talk) 02:03, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Potential Mainspace articles.

Hi Abcboy, I have several articles that I am hoping can are notable enough to be mainspaced. After asking ForceFire, they said these ones would need a second opinion.

User:PardescanSlowbro/Luka's great-grandfather
User:PardescanSlowbro/News Crew (M03)
User:PardescanSlowbro/Misty Village
User:PardescanSlowbro/Mountain Lighthouse
User:PardescanSlowbro/Unnamed Island (EP060)

PardescanSlowbro (talk) 06:38, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Luka's great-grandfather should be fine.
Leaning towards no for the news crew since they don't have names; if they had names in say the Japanese credits instead of just "REPORTER" and "CAMERA MAN" as in the English CCs, then it would be fine. Same idea for the island from EP060.
Misty Village should be good, the lighthouse depends on whether it's in the village or not; if it's inside or directly adjacent to it, then it should just be on the village's page. --Abcboy (talk) 02:03, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure about if the news crew were actually given names in the Japanese credits, and will have to find someone to look that up on my behalf.
I'll also combine the Misty Village and Mountain Lighthouse pages into one called "Misty Village", given that the Mountain Lighthouse lies close to the township itself.
With the unnamed island page, I thought that given that we have other unnamed island and forest pages for the Decolore Archipelago, and it was featured prominently in its respective episode that it was worth a page, but I'll not push for it to be mainspaced.
I'll message ForceFire regarding Luka's great-grandfather once I've finished editing the Misty Village article to have them mainspaced. Thanks for the reply.PardescanSlowbro (talk) 04:26, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
Last summer, I suggested some articles for mainspacing too, but nothing at all has come of them yet. Do you think these pages could be mainspaced?
User:FinnishPokéFan92/Tide Song Hotel

Please. I've waited with this subject for way too long already.

Kantonian Gym should be good with its recent anime appearance, Tide Song Hotel could use a bit more description of the building/layout itself in the Geography section. --Abcboy (talk) 22:55, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I'll work on the Tide Song Hotel page at some point. Can I have a permission to mainspace the Kantonian Gym page? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:20, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
Or did you mean by that reply that I can do it? Sorry, just wanting to be certain. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:21, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Could you add a {{main}} link to it on the "Gym" article's section of the building, since it's protected and I can't do it? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:12, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

Pokemon voices

Something has come to my intention with some of the voices of some Pokemon. With Pokemon such as Mudsdale, who clearly don't have a voice actor, seeing as its cry comes from real horses, or horse-like sounds, should we list them as not having a voice actor? Because where their voices are meant to be listed, it seems like an empty space waiting to be added, but they might never be revealed, seeing as they might not have ever been voiced by anyone. Just a thought. Playerking95 (talk) 13:12, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Pokémon who are clearly not voiced by humans like Groudon (M06) should have N/A in the VA box. --Abcboy (talk) 15:40, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Emmakazam22

Could you undo Emmakazam22's edit to SM110, listing Jessie and Meowth as narrating the title, which isn't right, seeing as this isn't how it has been listed on other pages. Meowth and Jessie only talk about the next episode and its title and Emmakazam22 added that even though I undid someone else who added Meowth to the list. I put something else on that users talk page a couple of weeks ago, and they haven't responded, so I don't think the user it listening to other people. Playerking95 (talk) 09:42, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Editorial Board?

In November 2017, User:Pumpkinking0192 undid my edit to the Villainous teams article which removed an inactive move proposal template that had been added there on March 18th of that year. He explained that only the Editorial Board could remove it and advised patience. Fair enough. However, over a year has passed since then and I see the move proposal template is still on the Villainous teams article with no indication that any action will be taken towards a move or the removal of the template. In less than three weeks, the template will have been on that article for two years. Is there any way to grease the gears of this bureaucracy, or is this a typical wait time?
To be clear, I have no preference one way or the other regarding the title of the Villainous teams article, but it bothers me that the template can stay up for so long and no one who has the power to resolve it does anything, while I am willing to remove the template right now yet lack the necessary permission to do so. Croaker (talk) 22:41, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

As of late, the wait time has been pretty long; can't make any guarantees about when the board as a whole can make said decision unfortunately. --Abcboy (talk) 02:34, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Template wikicode question

I am writing a sandboxed version of the {{alldex}} row template for use on a draft article (User:Force Fire/List of Pokémon that appear in multiple regional Pokédex) that is currently nominated for mainspacing. I want this sandboxed version to take into account whether a non-numeric input (like --- or ???) is fed to any of its parameters.

On the current version in templatespace, whenever a non-numeric input is fed to the s= parameter, as in the following example:

{{alldexh|1}}
{{alldex|1|084|j=204|oj=199|h=095|oh=092|s=---|u2dex=---|kdex=094|kr=Central|adex=---|Doduo|2|Normal|Flying}}
|}

I get the following error message:

Ndex Kdex Jdex Hdex Sdex Udex Kdex Adex MS Pokémon Type
#084 #084 #204* #095* #---Expression error: Unexpected > operator. #---B2W2 #094* #---USUM 084 Doduo Normal Flying

This is because of the following numeric comparison statement being executed by the template to determine whether or not to append Pt to the Sdex number:

{{#ifexpr: {{{s|001}}} > 151|{{Sup/4|Pt}}}}

The comparison {{{s|001}}} > 151 crashes whenever s= is non-numeric. So, I want to modify my sandboxed copy of {{alldex}} to not execute the numeric comparison above unless the input is purely numeric.

I want to ask if there is a wikicode command (like {{#ifnum: {{{in|def}}}|out}} or similar) that I can use in my template to check whether the input is a number (positive, negative, etc.) and execute the output only upon meeting that numeric constraint. That way, I could have my template do this without crashing or returning error messages:

{{#ifnum: {{{s|001}}}|{{#ifexpr: {{{s|001}}} > 151|{{Sup/4|Pt}}}}}}

I could also use such a construct to tell the template to supress any {{tt|*|}} tooltips for non-numeric inputs (like ---, used to express that a Pokémon is not in that regional Pokédex), so that for the example above I get something like this:

Ndex Kdex Jdex Hdex Sdex Udex Kdex Adex MS Pokémon Type
#084 #084 #204* #095* #--- #--- #094* #--- 084 Doduo Normal Flying

Any help on this? Thankee! ​‑‑SilSinn (TIDs768426S123446UM💬 22:57, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

P.S. I also asked this to Pokemaster97, but because he rarely answers questions (as evidenced by his talk page) and his last contribution dates back to 3 November 2018, I also chose to ask someone more active like you.

I would recommend just changing the default display from 001 to --- so that the parameter can just be excluded as you've already done. The function you're looking for is probably #iferror but I don't think it's necessary for your purposes. --Abcboy (talk) 03:01, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, I initially had that in mind when I first made this: {{User:SilSinn9801/alldex}}. But I think ForceFire would still prefer 001 as fallback value (as in the current templatespace version) so as to be somewhat compatible with the current version. It might be a good idea for staff to choose/​debate/​decide whether they would prefer to keep 001 as fallback (like Force Fire) or change it to --- as default (like my sandbox version) for the next update to alldex (which should happen whenever Pokémon Sword and Shield get released), and especially if at the same time that draft article by Force Fire is finally approved for mainspacing (if that ever happens). ​‑‑SilSinn (TIDs768426S123446UM💬 05:09, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

ForceFire updated the template, so now there is no need to manually type those --- values onto its call. But still there are a few quirks that need to be solved. Like this example:
{{alldexh|1}}
{{alldex|1|084|j=204|oj=199|h=095|oh=092|kdex=094|kr=Central|Doduo|2|Normal|Flying}}
|}
Ndex Kdex Jdex Hdex Sdex Udex Kdex Adex MS Pokémon Type
#084 #084 #204* #095* #--- #--- #094* #--- 084 Doduo Normal Flying
See those Sups accompanying those output --- values? They should not be there if those Dex values are left undefined. My sandboxed copy of the template takes care of that by checking whether such parameters were supplied by the user before printing any Sups, and it also checks whether a pair of old/new Udex (or Adex) values are equal (or not) before printing any tooltips. But I cannot incorporate such measures to the official template because Force Fire protected it (it was unprotected and being transcluded only onto two articles and this talk page, so how could it suddenly become a high-traffic page?), so I was asking if either you or Force Fire could take a look into this and either update the template with code from my sandboxed copy (or replace the template with my sandboxed version by moving my page over the official one, whichever path is more comfortable to you). My modified template is robust enough (and debugged enough) to be deployed into articles. Thankee! ​‑‑SilSinn (TIDs768426S123446UM💬 14:04, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Ash's Meltan

No one is able to create a page for Ash's Meltan as it is protected so could you or another admin do it--BigDocFan (talk) 09:43, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Problematic User.

Dear Abcboy,

I am appealing to you for assistance. I have requested the indefinite blocking of GrammarFreak01 on account of the user’s edit stalking behaviour, the failure to adhere to staff warnings and blocks because of strings of useless edits. I have been on this platform for the past year and have made significant additions to the many anime sections including plot rewrites, new plots, character sections to recurring characters and stub removal. Majority of my edits, which do not require any significant changes, are typically changed by the end of the day by GrammarFreak01. Be it either a word change to a synonym, deleting gaps, changing the way apostrophes look, switching information around, and in some cases erroneously putting in misinformation for episode pages on almost every single one of my edits. This user typically edits other user’s edits and rarely makes contributions to a page’s information, aside from Voice Actor pages. I am not the first and only to be targeted, Mikuri and Erika124 have been affected also, but I have brought this issue up with ForceFire several times and my calls for GrammarFreak01 to be indefinitely blocked on this platform have not occurred. This behaviour is intimidating and not collaborative in any sense, and for many including myself they find that they no longer wish to contribute to the platform because their edits will simply be altered unnecessarily. I hope to hear shortly, PardescanSlowbro (talk) 17:58, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

He edits pages I've edited too, and I personally have no problem with him doing so. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:12, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
I find GrammarFreak01 to be a helpful member, I often ask him to check over pages I am working on for mainspacing, sometimes due to my wording and grammar--BigDocFan (talk) 19:32, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
I think their tendency to make such insignificant edits in such large numbers is concerning for another reason, but I don't see why a particular user would be discouraged or indimidated by them. It's not like they completely rewrite what you've written, so your overall effort isn't in vain. Kikugi (talk) 19:42, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
I have asked GrammarFreak01 on multiple occasions to stop the edit stalking on multiple occasions, but he continues to not acknowledge these concerns and also continues the behavior that is causing tension. If it were one here and there, and especially a new page, that would be different, but that isn't the case, it is every single edit and within minutes (in many cases) that he will have made an unnecessary change to a page and the particular portions I have just edited. I have edited hundreds of pages, and more often than not GrammarFreak01 will make some unnecessary contribution soon after. I want the edit stalking to end immediately. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 04:25, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
You're not the only one whose edits he's been following. I'm pretty sure that he just looks at the most recent edits list for inspiration for edits. And I personally don't see any problem with that. You are not being stalked. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:40, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
My statement isn't up for debate. This behavior has been going on for over a year, with plenty of evidence in my edit history, discussion page, GrammarFreak01's discussion page and ForceFire's page as well. GrammarFreak01 has admitted to ForceFire that he has been keeping tabs on my edits. Plus his editing habits suggest that he isn't just editing the most recent contributions and does look through my edit history. Recently he has been waiting a week or two before he makes a useless change to my contribution. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 19:22, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
I think we should leave this for admin to decide, last thing I want is more arguments with members, spoils the fun for Bulbapedia--BigDocFan (talk) 19:26, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
In my eyes, PS is overreacting to this situation. GM01 also follows my edits, but I don't care about it. I'd also hardly call his edits useless. They may be small, but that doesn't necessarily make them less significant. Also, BDC makes a good point. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:29, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
The point of a wiki is that anyone can change anything; as it says in the edit box, "Please note that all contributions to Bulbapedia may be edited, altered, or removed by other contributors." --Abcboy (talk) 22:55, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Availability

So let me get this straight. We list a Pokémon unavailable of what generations were prior to its debut, not what game after their debut (E.G.: Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! with Gens II-VII). How is a proper way to make a template like the one I added that you removed? From, Sean 18:33, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

The Editorial Board needs to approve new templates. --Abcboy (talk) 22:55, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

rolls from Annice Moriarty

Hello While I did leave a message on Force Fire's talk, I'm not sure if he/she will see it. So I am letting you know of this too: I'm going to correct some rolls for characters voiced by Annice Moriarty. I will base these edits purely on two things,

  • Annice Moriarty and Kether Donohue are two separate individuals.
  • The Galactic Battles DVDs, where the credits are shown.

I also wish to know where it was that people got the information from that said that Annice Moriarty is Kether Donohue. I've looked all over the internet, but cannot find anything at all save an IMDB page on Donohue. IMDB is unreliable for pseudonyms and Donohue's website no longer exists, so there's no verification of sources there. There are other factors I will disregard as they give me a bit of a bias in the matter, and I will do my best not to make edits on those grounds, such as Moriarty's biographic info. I will also warn you guys about pseudonyms, using this important example of a long-held belief that turned out to be wrong. I have 3 names for you:

  • Allyson Johnson (Agatha)
  • Kathleen Delaney (Rouge the Bat from 4kids era Sonic the Hedgehog)
  • Caren Manuel (previously believed to have voiced both Rouge and Agatha)

Many places (Bulbapedia included) believed that Manuel voiced Agatha and Rouge, until it turned out that that info was wrong. I plan on making edits based on credits, because if I base it on anything else my bias will come in. So I guess I'm asking two things: 1. Show me a source that links Kether Donohue to Annice Moriarty, apart from voices and apart from them being in the same shows. There are rolls that Moriarty has done in shows that Donohue has never been in, and vice versa. If I had to guess as to the root of the belief, I would guess either of two things:

  • Both have provided the voice for Lila, albet in different stages of her life.
  • Both have similar enough sounding voices.

Full desclosure I am the sister of MOriarty, hence why I would have a bias, and hence why I wish to only edit what I can find in the credits of the actual episodes. I want this confusion cleared up because then if I can see sources, I can better understand where the information came from then I can judge it upon that as opposed to me just knowing Annie. We lived appart for most of our lives, as I stayed in Uganda and she moved to NY when she was 12, so we didn't interact on a regular basis. Still, I will do everything I can to make sure my bias doesn't show. S oI will simply ask for the source so I can examine it. When you and Force Fire make a determination, please keep in mind the Caren Manuel/Kathleen Delaney/Allyson Johnson thing, and please keep in mind that just because two people sound similar, that doesn't mean they are the same person. I also present Christopher Kromer and Matthew Charles, who also have been confused for each other in the past. Sorry for any typing errors, I am a fast typer. Hope to hear from you soon. Please, if nothing else, I want some non-IMDB sources, because IMDB, which is unreliable is the only one I could find.

Also remember, just because it's a long-held and long-uncontested belief, that doesn't mean it's true. I think Allyson Johnson, Kathleen Delaney and Caren Manuel can tell you that. Oh yea another Pokemon example I can think of where a long-held belief happened was Megan Hollingshead vs. Lee Quick (Officer Jenny). or Megan Hollingshead vs. Emily Niebo (computer in second Pokemon Movie thanks.

Aromatherapy

As it has been stated many times before, moves need to be named or have to have a unique animation, so why did a user add the recurring Shaymin in the anime as one who has used the move? I keep having to tell people like Finnishpokefan that moves need to be stated, but they keep adding them despite this and then add them back when they've been removed for not being stated. I thought this rule was meant to be followed, but it keeps getting ignored. Playerking95 (talk) 13:45, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

I do not start edit wars with you anymore, but this still frustrates me: it's clearly a move that Shaymin can learn which cures status conditions. Aromatherapy fits that bill perfectly. And said move hasn't been used previously in the Sun & Moon series, so there is nothing to contradict it. PS. A minor quibble, but could you please write my user name properly in the future? Or maybe use "FPF" for short? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:28, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Hello, Abcboy? Playerking95 (talk) 18:11, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
If there's a dispute about a move, then it shouldn't be listed unless there's official confirmation. --Abcboy (talk) 22:55, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
Closed captions have now confirmed that the move Shaymin used in SM118 was indeed Aromatherapy. However, for some reason, Force Fire considers SM134 as the move's debut episode, despite SM118 being chronologically the first episode where it was used. He claims that the first instance the move is called out counts as the debut, which I strongly disagree with. I say the first chronological instance should be the one to count, since closed captions are considered a reliable enough source for disputed move confirmation. Could you help? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:37, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Help?

Yesterday, I created articles for the three original fishing rods, and today, I've spent a lot of time fixing appropriate links to lead to those pages. However, links to those rods are very common, plus the biggest hurdle of all, which is fixing all the links on the Pokémon species articles, still lies ahead. But just now, Suic12- (talk · contribs) came to my talk page and suggested that BulbaBot could tackle the task. Is it true that you're in charge of the bot? Could you do something to help with this big link conversion project?
PS. Should the encounter templates also be edited to include links to the separate rods for fishing encounters? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:29, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Can do that in a bit. As for the encounter templates, I'll discuss it with the rest of the staff. --Abcboy (talk) 22:20, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Thank you so much. I'm also keeping my hopes up for the template edit. You know how in encounter templates outside Generations V and VII, in the section for fishing encounters, there is a subtitle under the word "Fishing" for each encounter to mark which rod each encounter can be made with? I meant adding links to those rod names. Sorry if I was being obvious, I just wanted to say it. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:53, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
Now that all the Poké Ball articles have been mainspaced, could you make BulbaBot edit all {{Ball}} templates into links to each ball's respective article? The standard Poké Ball's link in {{OBP|Poké Ball|item}}.
Also, what do we do in case a location article's item list lists only a single Poké Ball, in which case the entire "display" section could be removed? Do we just manually remove those? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:29, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
Edit: the link to "Poké Ball (item)" can actually be created more easily with the {{i}} template. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:19, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Just wondering, but should the hashtag edit summary be removed too? Or is everything just fine now? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:30, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Not sure about that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:44, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

Image question

I was wondering if the WTP images for SM113 and SM114 should be upgraded to a greater quality? I'm pretty sure about the latter needing an upgrade, but do you think the former needs one too? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:32, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

Situation

Hello, Abcboy. How are you doing today? FinnishPokéFan92 and I have a problem. It’s the episodes. When SM117 came out in the dub, I was able to watch it. Then when Team Rocket showed up and stolen Sandy, Meltan and Shaymin and got out soon after, Shaymin used Aromatherapy to heal Sandy in that episode even though nobody said it, but it was revealed in closed captions. Similar to Kiawe's Marowak's moves. We talked to Force Fire about this, but no luck. And I always have proof about the attacks and never give wrong info. So I dunno what we should do now since the episode is already locked along with SM134. What do you think?--CoolPokéGuy (Talk) 12:43, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

It's still being discussed, will provide another update when there's a consensus. --Abcboy (talk) 02:33, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

SwSh PCs confirmed

So you confirm the Sword and Shield player characters? - unsigned comment from PokéSean (talkcontribs)

We all can't add any names because they appear popular and they are NOT NPCs. We should call them by game versions. - unsigned comment from PokéSean (talkcontribs)
The LGPE PCs aren't named Chase and Elaine because they are not NPCs and we don't know if Victor and Gloria are the SwSh PCs because they have to be NPCs. - unsigned comment from PokéSean (talkcontribs)

PokemonS&S2022‎

User PokemonS&S2022‎ recently edited SM138's page to delete Guzma from being a possible victor in his battle against Ash, when he have no proof that Ash is going to win yet. Could you undo that? Playerking95 (talk) 09:21, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

Need a small favor

Since the Regional variant page has been locked down, could you update the PASM16 link with its confirmed English title "A Photoshoot and the Abandoned Thrifty Megamart". -Tyler53841 (talk) 02:26, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Changed. --Abcboy (talk) 02:33, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

SM139

Since SM139 is protected, could you or another admin change Professor Kukui to Professor Kukui/the Masked Royal and add Rowlet, Primarina, Charizard, Turtonator, and Tsareena, since they were shown in a video and in some images from cho-animedia. Playerking95 (talk) 15:28, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Added. --Abcboy (talk) 16:23, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Renaming Ghali photo

Though you just renamed the Scuz article to Ghali, you're also going to have to rename the photo as well, because it's no longer showing up on the Character of the day article. I'm not sure of how to rename photos myself, so I'm just letting you know. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:07, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Impidimp

Can you add Impidimp's Japanese name on the page? It goes like this: ベロバー Berobar. Seabiscuit2020 (talk) 07:28, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Subpage fix

User:Abcboy/Abyssal Ruins requires fixing, as the right portion of the text will be unseen on smaller screens, like on mine. --TheICTLiker4 15:28, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Me neither, and I have a too wide screen to begin with in my opinion. --Raltseye prata med mej 12:34, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Current events

BulbaBot has made all of its 149 contributions to this page. I think it should add the following bit to the end:

<noinclude>[[Category:Events]]<noinclude>

This is because every page, except the main page, should go to a category. Thank you, --TheICTLiker4 13:02, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Daiki Yamashita

Just thought I would let you know I've started work on a page for Daiki Yamashita--BigDocFan (talk) 11:42, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Mainspacing Island Kahuna pages

Are the pages User:Seabiscuit2020/Nanu's Persian, User:05308/Olivia's Lycanroc, User:BigDocFan/Hala's Hariyama, and User:BigDocFan/Hapu's Mudsdale ready to be mainspaced? Reinhartmax (talk) 01:24, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

Are you going to get back to me on this? Reinhartmax (talk) 20:44, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Teachy TV

I found the Pokétivù article at Pokémon Central Wiki, but none other member of Encyclopaediae Pokémonis has this link. Could BulbaBot/WikiBot correct that?

PS I will add the link on Bulbapedia, PokéWiki and ポケモンWiki because I have accounts on all three. --TheICTLiker4piszże do mnie 11:19, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

what does HS stand for

Hello Recently you renamed side stories episodes from I.E. SS001 to HS01 What does HS stand for? for the BW and XY ones I get that BWS is Black & White or Best Wishes special, and XYS is XY special, but what is HS? African Vulture (talk) 03:21, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

I innitially thought that it was "Hoenn special, " but that would be stupid because the only one of those that my research shows me takes place in Hoenn is We're No Angels! with training days is a bit ambiguous as to which region it is set in as it shows mostly flashbacks, so it could be Kanto, it could be Johto or it could be Hoenn. At best you got two specials set in Hoenn if you count HS12 as being set in Hoenn, with the rest of Chronicle sbeing set exclusively in Kanto and Johto. I believe CVI Islands are part of it too. So I'm not sure what HS would stand for since Hoenn special makes 0 sense given that at best 2 of 18 are set in Hoenn. African Vulture (talk) 03:28, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Hōsō special, see Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station, that Chronicles are, in part, based on (second paragraph). --Arseny1992 (talk) 03:46, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Your opinion

Hi, I'd like to have your (personal, non-binding) input on a few things:

  1. For interwiki links, if there's a redirect at another wiki that redirects to a section on some other page that wiki, do you prefer to interwiki that redirect, the section, or not at all? Example: for Great Ball, would you link it:Mega Ball, it:Poké Ball#Mega Ball, or nothing Italian? (I'm just wondering what you and/or BulbaBot would prefer and why, I certainly don't mean to go fix links.)
  2. Do you know whether it is common for (early) Japanese Pokémon names to have alternate spellings? Do you think alternate spellings are notable? (Concrete case: Nishida said she designed "スピア" rather than スピアー, for example, and I wonder what to do with that.)
  3. Why does Template:DL have a third param, or why should it have? Is there any benefit (well, apart from it being actually used that way now, I guess)? I guess what I'm asking is: Do you see any reason why the third param was added in the first place? Why should anyone use {{DL|A|B|C}} rather than [[A#B|C]]? (I hope you get what I mean.)

Thank you for answering. Nescientist (talk) 13:04, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

  1. BulbaBot will automatically attempt to change an interwiki link to a redirect to the destination of that redirect, even if it's to a section. (This does mean that if it-wiki creates a page at it:Mega Ball, it will find a conflict between the two pages and not automatically correct it.)
  2. We know a lot of the Pokémon had codenames and even different names entirely. That particular case seems more like a typo to me, honestly.
  3. Parallelism in a list of other section links using DL, perhaps; in general the plain link for cases like that is much clearer IMO. --Abcboy (talk) 15:19, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
  1. So, what I'm reading is the first alternative wouldn't last too long, and also that there's no conflict if sections on the same page (like it:Poké Ball) are the interwiki target of multiple, distinct pages, is that correct? (If so, out of curiosity, where would Bulbabot's Italian counterpart link back to, if at all, given there wasn't already a link to en:Poké Ball?) What about the second alternative vs. the third?
  2. Are you talking about Generation I Japanese names that predate the release of Red and Green? If so, can you point me somewhere? I think I never heard that, even less saw a list. It's very obvious for Gen II by the Spaceworld demo, but for Generation I (..and I'm about to look for some helixchamber articles again to see if I'm mistaken), weren't the names often fixed before the designs??? (Since that Nishida site was first captured in Jan 1998, yes, スピア could easily just be a typo.)
  3. Alright, thanks. (Not sure what exact parallelism you mean, though.) Nescientist (talk) 16:57, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
Ok, #2 research didn't take too long, you're right (and I'm probably right about "often"). If you happen to have a list, still feel free to share it. :) Nescientist (talk) 17:04, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
Section links aren't followed except to check that the page in question exists and isn't a redirect, so it won't add any links from it:Poké Ball to any pages linking to a section of that page. This means it also wouldn't add any links back to it:Poké Ball unless there was a link to the page directly. No link and a section link is the same as far as the target wiki is concerned, they don't exist there.
As for parallelism, something like "Favored Mail, Thanks Mail, and Bridge Mail M are programmed into X and Y" or some other example where most of the links are to section titles with some exceptions. --Abcboy (talk) 17:22, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
Ah, that makes sense. Still, do you prefer one or the other?
Thanks for clarifying. Nescientist (talk) 18:11, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
