Yay! First!

Anyway, how do I make it so that my user page in ポケモン wiki redirects to my user page on Bulbapedia? --リック EO (Open for discussion) 15:42, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Hmm... Have you tried using "#Redirect[[en:User:Rikeo]]"?
Also, please keep in mind that I am not aware of the rules they have over there, neither have I tried any such thing before. So, please try it at your own risk and do check their userspace rules before doing so. AdynizWanna talk? 15:59, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Their policy is similar to ours: 3 edits max per day. But they also have something like don't edit it more than 5 times a month unless you have more mainspace edits than userspace edits. But what's strange is that you don't have to be autoconfirmed to create one. I've already made one edit (with #REDIRECT [] which didn't work), and another one probably won't get me in trouble, but I think I'll wait a few days. Thanks though.––リック EO (Open for discussion) 02:32, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the butt-in. "#Redirect [[:en:User:Rikeo]]" should work, with the colon before "en" (without the first colon it would most likely create a normal interlanguage link and end up redirecting to nothing). I don't even give a Schif (TalkContribs) 03:15, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Holiday Hi-Jynx

Hello, today Hungama aired Holiday Hi-Jynx (calling it सांता और जिंक्स). As this episode is banned in the US, do you think that it is notable enough to be added to the Pokémon in South Asia page? Regarding continuity, yesterday they aired It's Mr. Mime Time, and no more episodes were shown out of order. →PikaTepig999★ 08:58, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

It is more of a partially banned episode. Yes, it is notable for the SA article. So, feel free to add it in the trivia section. AdynizWanna talk? 09:08, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Umm, could you add it yourself, please ? My grammer has been known to cause confusions in the past. Also, should it be specified when it aired (between which episodes) ? →PikaTepig999★ 09:14, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for adding that to the article, and a happy independence day to you and your country! →PikaTepig999★ 14:46, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
No problem. And thank you. Happy independence day to you as well (in advance). AdynizWanna talk? 15:11, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

I need permission for Upload picture

Hello Adyniz ^_^ I need permission for Upload picture, you can permit me ? Thank you -- User:Tomarzig Talk 22:35, 18 August 2014 (ICT)

May I know what would you like to upload? AdynizWanna talk? 15:55, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Pokémon pictures, List of episodes picture and general picture -- User:Tomarzig Talk 11:35, 19 August 2014 (ICT)
I see. The thing is... That particular usergroup is mainly reserved for the established contributors or special volunteers, along with some other exceptions. If there's an image that you would like to upload, you can send it to me and I can upload it for you. If you still think that you need the ability to upload images, I would suggest asking Kogoro about it since she's the Archives Liaison. AdynizWanna talk? 04:51, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
I will upload XY041 but not have permission to create new pages, pls set permission for me thank you -- User:Tomarzig Talk 17:58, 28 August 2014 (ICT)
As I mentioned above, please talk to Kogoro if you think you can really use the upload tool. AdynizWanna talk? 11:15, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Section 4

CNI has made a Pokerap for BW re-runs. The only problem is that it is broadcast before the beginning of the show, and hence acts as an Opening Theme (the regular opening theme is not shown). So what to call it? --→PikaTepig999★ 09:30, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

I mean, should it be called a Pokerap or a opening theme? Because a user has added its info (calling it a Pokerap) to the South Asia page. As it is right after the Hungama Pokérap trivia, it can cause confusion by making it seem like a ending theme. So, what do you think? → SuperPikaPool13 15:48, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
For now, you can change it to Pokérap (CNI). AdynizWanna talk? 16:14, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Okay. I'm gonna add its lyrics soon, and I will name the section on the Hindi Pokémon themes page as "Pokerap (CNI)". Thanks for your help. -SuperPikaPool13, 16:22, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Added the lyrics. One more thing. The official CN site calls it the "Pokémon Black & White Song Video".--→SuperPikaPool13 09:35, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
So should we rename it ? →SuperPikaPool13 07:30, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
Done. AdynizWanna talk? 07:48, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
You might want to take a look at this. →SuperPikaPool13 16:09, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I've seen it before. I did cover some aspects of it in the news article and in SA reception section. AdynizWanna talk? 17:13, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I did not know that. →SuperPikaPool13 10:46, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Also, now that Season 2 has started on Hungama, could you contact your informant again to get the VAs of new characters, and some old ones including the narrator and Gary ? →SuperPikaPool13 10:46, 12 September 2014 (UTC) | Edited at: 09:51, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

I'm already waiting for their response to some of my earlier questions. Can't ask any more questions until the previous ones get answered. AdynizWanna talk? 10:35, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
Just curiosity, but what earlier questions? -→SuperPikaPool13 14:51, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
Never mind that. Also, I saw on Wikipedia that Mewtwo Strikes Back has aired on Hungama. I did not see any ad on the channel nor even see the movie on the channel. What should we do? If someone had a Wikipedia Acccount, we could have asked the user who added it for the source. →SuperPikaPool13 09:20, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I obviously won't stop you, if you want to ask the user about the source. However, we cannot add it until there is a sold evidence i.e. a commercial or any sort of official announcement. AdynizWanna talk? 14:12, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I was browsing the wikipedia page for hungama tv; I found that the movie was listed in upcoming movies section. Regarding the question about the source; I have posted it on the user's talk page on wikipedia.Mccoyzn (talk) 13:39, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
You might consider reading this. SuperPikaPool13 (talk) 07:16, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Separation of Pokémon in South Asia Page

Hey Adyniz! due to this Hungama airing, Pokémon in South Asia page is getting really long I thought there was enough material, for the page to be segregated into Pokémon in India & rest of South Asia would you mind considering it? As some European Unions Countries have there own page while they do not have enough material too. Because for now Pokémon in South Asia is really confusing, as lot of information is being added on a regular basis.--Viv (talk) 15:35, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Really long? But it is hardly around 20-25 Kbs. Also, most of the new information is about Hungama airings, as you pointed out, which has its own dedicated section. So, I honestly don't see what's so confusing about it. AdynizWanna talk? 16:15, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I have one in my user page, if it's good enough, we can separate it. Also i want one of my page in the user page to be deleted (XY season 18), i have put it on that page. can you delete it Pratik_12 (talk) 15:39, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
I have deleted the season 18 article, as you requested.
Regarding the separation of SAsia article, I can assure you that it will not happen because there is absolutely no reason to. Way back when I didn't even start working on the article, I wanted to go with something like Pokémon in Pakistan. I had a fairly decent discussion with Buzz (former head of Project Globe) and soon realized that most of the content that will be covered in the articles, if we ever took that route, will be more or less identical (at least half of the content will be the same). Therefore, it would be redundant to have two articles on the respective subject. AdynizWanna talk? 16:10, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Patrolled edits

What is a partolled edit? I was looking at the logs for my user pages when i noticed that. SuperPikaPool13 (talk) 06:02, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Vandal filter 2? AdynizWanna talk? 05:21, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes. I triggered one while fixing a broken linkMccoyzn (talk) 05:26, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
It looks like the filter was triggered because you removed a decent amount of information (accidentally I suppose) from a page, while you weren't auto-confirmed yet. AdynizWanna talk? 09:10, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I thought it was something related to vandalism. Mccoyzn (talk) 15:10, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Must Think Before UNDO.

I think i must get the permission to upload images and create Pages. I got an information from a website that says Pokémon was set up banned in India for a short time ,, see this , but when I add it People remove it without any reason.. I even added too many info to the page but they dont allow me. 1. Add A column of Banned 2. Add A columns of Errors , as the Pokémon BW was written as POKEMON BLACK AND WHITE on POGO, Pokémon as POKEMON on Hungama Tv , many other dub error which I know , ie The Hindi Dub Of BW First Episode , the Oak misspells the names of region . 3. Things removed or changes, I know lot of them like dub edit to remove love part, 4. Franchise Of Pokémon In India , I own them and I can Proof It..The Pokémon Wares Are available in India , with Excel Innovators , Funskool India and other 2, But I want the Permission and thw other info must be added which I have , Pokémon Chronicles should be removed from Movies listing of Pokémon In India Page. Thats All, And Much More Left. At LAst Happy Ramadan. - unsigned comment from KINGKHAN (talkcontribs)

Merchandise idea redux

Earlier this year, I dropped an idea on your talk page while you were away for a bit about an idea for easing the pain of searching for specific Pokémon merchandise. I finally got around to making a page to show what it would roughly look like. Any thoughts, comments? glikglak 15:43, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

I wholeheartedly apologize for the really (really) late reply, but I think it would be better if you ask an active admin (who have contributed a lot in the past few days/weeks). AdynizWanna talk? 17:39, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Hindi titles of episodes

I am going to add the hungama dub episode titles now; but before that I have one query. How.should the Hindi titles be typed?? For example, should the titles be rendered like this (Use mouseover): Title in Devnagri <space> transliteration (italicized) Or Devanagari title Or in any other way?? I have been adding the titles in the latter way but I thought it would be better to add them in the former way. Hence I thought I would ask. What are your thoughts ??? → PikaTepig999 | Edited at: 15:10, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Also, what about the Hindi titles of moves, peoples, etc.? Should those be added too ?? →PikaTepig999 14:49, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
One more thing. User:Kanhakris16 says that a red logo for Pokémon is used in India nowadays. So, should it be used in the infobox on the South Asia page ? (You can see the discussion on her talk page.) →PikaTepig999 14:56, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
Hello?? Aren't you gonna reply? You were inactive for a long time, but I saw your name in the recent changes just now. →SuperPikaPool13 13:55, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
I have been busy with other things. Hence, the low activity. As for your questions:
* Use the mouseover thing.
* If a move has a Hindi name (e.g. Jald Akramand), then I guess it would be okay to use Hindi. But don't use the Hindi names for the moves which have kept their English name in the Hindi dub. Similarly, people's names shouldn't be translated since they are the same as the English dub.
* Primarily, the Hindi dub aired with the original logo in most of the regions. So, the infobox is fine as it is. Red logo should only be used for the Hungama section, which I believe we already do. AdynizWanna talk? 17:39, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
Okay about the names of moves, people ans locations (most people have their names same as English but in some (rare) cases, their names are changed.) But For moves, sometimes the name is translated while sometimes it is kept the same as English.
About the mouseover thing, both the methods of adding the names that I suggested use mouse overs. But which exactly should I use?? I prefer it as: पोकेमोन, मै तुम्हे चुनता हूँ! Pokémon , main Tumhe Chunta Hoon! instead of पोकेमोन, मै तुम्हे चुनता हूँ! . Is it okay??
Also What about the layout that is being used for adding the Hungama dub themes on the Hindi Pokémon Themes page?? Is it okay too?? →SuperPikaPool13 18:33, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
And how is the BW series airing on CN Pakistan? Will season 15 start there? →SuperPikaPool13 10:54, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
As a reader, I would prefer पोकेमोन, मै तुम्हे चुनता हूँ! Pokémon , main Tumhe Chunta Hoon! (because I can't read Devanagari). However, it seems redundant to use both Devanagari and transliteration in this case. So, I'd suggest to go with पोकेमोन, मै तुम्हे चुनता हूँ! . As for CNP airings, they aired first half of season 14 and then reran it. Currently, it's airing the second half of new episodes. No news about season 15. AdynizWanna talk? 07:34, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
Many People have the same problem as you: they can't read Devnagari. Hence we should use Devnagari and Transliteration both. Also, if any non-Indian user is reading the title, even they should be able to read it. About BW on CNP, you might wanna think about updating the South Asia page. →SuperPikaPool13 15:31, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Re: From what we know so far... Is there anything else that needs to be added here?

Well, can you add the "ORAS" color scheme to both the EpicodePrevNext and MovieInfobox templates for M18? ~~LDEJRuff~~ 2:08, 17 February, 2015 (UTC)

Aside from being a part of the XY anime series, which is self-explanatory, it is literally labelled as Pokémon the movie: XY in the movie poster. So, I'm not sure why exactly should we use the ORAS color scheme rather than the one that we are already using. AdynizWanna talk? 07:58, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Regarding XY Series

I would like you to update the episode photo for XY064, it's been the same long since, the preview is also out so you can put the pic from the respective episode's page. Pratik_12 18:11, 5 March 2015 (UTC)


Adyniz, a user tells told me that the Hungama TV manager has announced in an official statement that M01 will be airing on Hungama this year. Is it okay to add this to the South Asia page?? You can see the whole conversation _The_First_Movie here, and I think it would be better if you replied there only. signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 10:19, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

(resetting indent) Instead of making a new section, I'll continue here: What is your opinion about this edit? I don't think it is necessary, and the whole thing about Pokémon BW being teased by CN India is not needed as its facebook page is always posting about Pokémon. Also, the bit about XY is pure speculation. Should those edits be undone then?? →[[::User:SuperPikaPool13|SuperPikaPool13]] ([[::User talk:SuperPikaPool13|talk]]  [[::Special:Contributions/SuperPikaPool13|contribs]]) 09:31, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Also, about the "specials" aired by CN India. They are not specials in fact they are marathons. Should it be changed too?? signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 09:31, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, the first one is pointless and the other one is speculation at this point. So, feel free to undo it (possibly with a reason for undoing in the edit summary). AdynizWanna talk? 10:29, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

(resetting indent) Again, continuing here: Could you try to give your opinion to this discussion please?? Same as last time, try to reply there only! Thanks! → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 08:30, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

M01 on Hungama TV

Hungama has started airing promos for M01. They label the movie as "Coming Soon". Also it can be seen that a custom logo for the movie has been made by them. So should it be upload to Bulbapedia??? You can see a promo here. → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 05:13, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

I don't have any objections, if the logo gets added. It would be nice if we can get a higher quality one. Also, why does the article say that the movie is airing in April when the trailer simply says coming soon? AdynizWanna talk? 07:02, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Sorry there is not a higher quality one (yet). I would have simply taken a screenshot of the frame from the trailer and then edited the image using Dont know about he April thing, but as the channel has started trailers, it would porbably be in this mothn only. → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 11:31, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Then it'd be best to remove the airing month and just add TBA for now. We can add the date, once they announce it. As for the logo, I tried but it didn't turn out too good. AdynizWanna talk? 11:51, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
The premiere date of the movie is 18th April. Regarding the logo, what about this?? 18:35, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
Nupz, it is almost as bad as the one I posted above. We will just have to wait for a high quality source, if we are going to edit the logo from a clip's screenshot.
Also, in case if a situation arrives in the future concerning the whole 'my dad works for Hungama' thing... Any such information that comes from a user's personal source (i.e. relative works for hungama / my friend's friend's friend's uncle's friend knows the authorities etc.) should be removed as soon as possible, unless there is a legit way (a trailer, press release or an official announcement of some sort) to confirm the respective claim. AdynizWanna talk? 19:11, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
Well, the user hadn't posted anything in the main space like that in the main space, just that message had that source. And the image looks the same like you uploaded. → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 06:22, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
We currently need a image for the logo, so I uploaded the one you edited, and then can update it when a good quality version is found. → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 06:22, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

(resetting indent)The movie debuted today, and this can be used to make a better version of the logo. Maybe this?? I would have done that myself, but even if I knew how to edit that image to make it transparent, I don't have the software. So can you please edit it like you did with the last one?? → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 11:22, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

I will try. If it didn't turn out good, I will try to ask Darkeiya when she is online. AdynizWanna talk? 13:18, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
It's been a long time, so What happened about the logos? Also, Hungama Tv made a logo for XY, so it would be good if this could be edited too. → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 10:52, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Hungama VAs

Well, as you know, we received a link to Ash's VA's fb page, and there was a photo of the dubbing team on it. The photo mentions a lot more cast than we currently have, and hence should we add their names too on the cast table in the South Asia page?? → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 06:18, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Also in that photo, Prasad Barve himself mentions in the comments that he voiced Ash in the previous CN dub. Is this a good enough source??? And why was the previous VA listed as "Rahul Sharma" anyway?? Was there an official source for it? → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 06:18, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Regarding Rahul Sharma, I believe I read it in an old blog post published by one of the previous cast members (I think it was James' voice actor, but I could be wrong). Not sure what went wrong there, but that certainly was not the case. As for Prasad... Yeah, I read his comment and looked up some of his previous work. Ash was definitely voiced by him in the previous dub. Feel free to add it in the article.
As for the additional VAs... What other cast members does the post mention? AdynizWanna talk? 12:40, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Well, you currently protected that article due to edit wars, so I will add it after the protection ends, or else you can add it yourself. I believe "tn"%3A"R4"%7D this would be a great direct link for the source. → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 13:26, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
This photo posted by him is captioned a whole dubbing team. Aside from existing VAs, some who are tagged are Benny Mathews, Deepak Guptaa, Nitesh Haralkar and Rohan Chavan. Though their roles are unknown. → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 13:26, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
The source is good enough. Though, as you said, we don't know the names of the additional cast members. AdynizWanna talk? 04:15, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
Their names were mentioned in that image, though their roles are unknown. I actually sent a message to some of these VAs, asking them for more VA names and official confirmation for the time level package bit. I am also thinking to message CN dub actors for names of remaining actors. → signed comment from SuperPikaPool13 04:41, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Recurring Pokémon in the anime


I noticed that you were working on splitting the lengthy Recurring Pokémon in the anime page into separate articles.

Somewhat related, I've got these two pages which are mostly complete:

Also, I've been working on creating templates for the anime competition pages to hopefully restructure them in a better way with page specific pictures showing the various team and trainers with their ranking. At the moment I'm happy with how it looks, but I can't get the different boxes to be next to each other and instead they are vertical like this:

Ash & Pikachu
Runner Up
Ash & Pikachu

Basically all the character had was a cameo, I reduced the information to the basics, he insisted (and it was a bit rude) to put it in a redundant way. The way he insists on putting it, the information appears at least 4 times (twice for images, twice for text). Is this necessary for a character who only had one cameo?Even more than we already know that the series has ended, it will not be expanded----Hikaru Wazana (talk) 15:34, 07 August 2020 (UTC)

Hey there. I believe there is no hard and fast rule for this, so neither of you two are wrong. However, I personally think that Reinhartmax's edit is more stylistically consistent with the wiki, since we give Pokémon their own boxes in most cases, even if the information available is limited. AdilTalk page 08:51, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
But the information we have about Hattena is quite limited. He only appeared with Bede in that cameo. He used the example of Sonia, but she appeared in two episodes before showing her with Yamper. Personally, I wanted him to have more information, but since he will not have it, it is pointless to repeat the same information as in his biography. And the other formatting style has served well, I put it on pages of the Pokémon of Goh in Manga, Visquez and it has been well organized. So, I don’t know, leave it that way?-Hikaru Wazana (talk) 13:34, 08 August 2020 (UTC)
Again, I don't think you're wrong about this and your reasoning makes sense. But stylistically I feel that we should prefer consistency over different approaches for pages with similar issues until we have an approved alternative. For now, I'd suggest to leave it as it is. This issue is not something on the high priority end of the list to be frank, as our hands are already full right now, but I'll note this down and bring it up for a discussion with the staff some time in the future for possible options. I hope that you understand. AdilTalk page 13:57, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I understand. Well, thanks for listening.-Hikaru Wazana (talk) 14:34, 08 August 2020 (UTC)

Goh's Dustox

Is User:Reinhartmax/Goh's Dustox ready for mainspace?--Reinhartmax (talk) 13:43, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

I've my doubts to be honest, especially concerning JN011. Unlike aerial scouting, which is an active contribution to the plot and can easily be considered as tangential involvement, Wurmple/Cascoon didn't really do much at all that actually affected the storyline. The only reaction that we got was Ash and Goh's attention for a brief moment. I'd say it's better to wait for at least one more episode in which they are used to get a better picture whether we want them to be mainspaced or not. AdilTalk page 16:01, 18 August 2020 (UTC)
Sounds good.--Reinhartmax (talk) 17:22, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

Mainspacing request

Should [[User:Rahl/Mallow's Pokémon]] be mainspaced now that Shaymin has its own proper article? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:55, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing it up. I'll need to have a discussion with other staff first (most likely after we are done with the recurring article). I'll let you know here, once we have a consensus. AdilTalk page 12:59, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
You're welcome. I'll look forward to the answer. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:12, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
You might have seen it already, but I wanted to notify you that it was approved and mainspaced last night. AdilTalk page 08:56, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
Yup. Saw it. Thanks! Another template I think should probably be mainspaced is User:Abcboy/Form. Could you bring that up with other staff members too? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:40, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
Sure thing, will do. AdilTalk page 12:00, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

[[User:Hikaru Wazana/Lance's Gyarados]]

Hi, how are you? I think I had commented to you on another page about it, I did a specific page for Lance's Gyarados. I mean, the part of Red Gyarados, I was wondering if she has a chance to go to Mainspace, just like they did with the same Pokémon page in the Adventures manga when it was captured by Silver. I think that as Gyarados is a recurring Pokémon with Lance in various media and even in the anime it is more used than Dragonite I thought it would be more interesting to separate things.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 01:32, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Hey, I'm well. I can't say at the moment, but I'll bring it up for a discussion with the staff and let you know when we have a consensus. AdilTalk page 08:58, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
Oh, Thanks. =D --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 13:35, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
Just want to let you know that it's been approved. I haven't had the time to move it, but will likely do it before Tuesday. AdilTalk page 19:51, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback. :D --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 21:45, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
Glad to help. AdilTalk page 21:54, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
It's been mainspaced. AdilTalk page 13:47, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

List of Goh's Pokemon link

Hi Adil, Pikablu keeps removing the template under the link.Animaltamer7 (talk) 13:30, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

I don't entirely disagree with Pikablu's edit. If we have to prefer one, I'd pick the link than the template. For now, I'd say leave it how Pikablu left it. If the staff comes to a different conclusion in future, it'll be changed accordingly. Until then, Pikablu's edit shouldn't be reverted. AdilTalk page 13:39, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Mallow Tsareena Sweet Scent

Since we're doing a lot to improve the site, could we take another look at Tsareena using Sweet Scent? The move was not called out but it looked and did the same effect as when it was pre-evolved.--Rahl (talk) 10:03, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm a little out of loop. Can you tell me the episode number in which it used that? I'll try to look into it when I get a chance. AdilTalk page 10:19, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
All They Want to Do is Dance Dance!. Thank you.--Rahl (talk) 10:36, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! AdilTalk page 10:53, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Since List of moves with unique animations is probably a better place for this discussion, I've posted my reply over there. Please give it a read. Thanks! AdilTalk page 13:31, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
Thank you!--Rahl (talk) 13:40, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

Mallow Shaymin Aromatherapy

There's been a dispute regarding whether Mallow's Shaymin knowing Aromatherapy could be added to the major events of the episode where it was first used (SM117) instead of the episode where it was first called out by name (SM134). I personally strongly believe it belongs in its debut episode's major events, since that's where it was first used, but currently, it's mentioned in the layer episode's major events. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:18, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

I see. I may not get time today, but I'll give the episode a watch when I get a chance and let you know once we have a decision. AdilTalk page 14:29, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. I'll be waiting. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:04, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
After watching both episodes and discussing it with the staff, we have come to the conclusion that SM117 should be considered its debutant episode and therefore, should be acknowledged as a major event in that article as opposed to 134. Please feel free to make those changes. We have also updated the speculation policy to reflect this. AdilTalk page 09:41, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
Thank you very much! This is awesome to hear! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:44, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

"See also" links

SnorlaxMonster (talkcontribs) thinks that category links in "See also" sections should be using this format instead of the {{cat}} template. What's your opinion? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:54, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

"See also" sections should generally use the actual titles of the articles. So, when adding categories in that mix, if we are to use {{cat}}, there is no way for a reader to clearly tell if the link goes to an article or a category without clicking on it, which is something we should try to avoid. For example, Aether Foundation and Aether Foundation visually appear to be the same thing to an average reader, which is a little confusing. Using Category:Aether Foundation would be a more user-friendly approach, as it makes the link clear to the reader immediately. That's why I think what SnorlaxMonster said makes a lot of sense. AdilTalk page 10:27, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
I understand. Seeing the word "Category" in those sections just feels not right to me. It may be because I'm just not used to seeing it there. So should all those links be edited? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:05, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
I understand your point. Yeah, generally all those in "See also" sections should be edited accordingly. If there are exceptions, can't think of any at the moment, feel free to bring them up . AdilTalk page 12:34, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Gender policy

Can I ask you about these? Do you think these count as clear gender differences?--Rocket Grunt 15:43, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

I will look into these, but please keep in mind that it will take some time, which I don't have right now. But I will get back to you eventually. If you see me editing but not responding, don't take it the wrong way. That may simply mean that we haven't come to a decision and/or aren't ready to give a conclusive answer just yet. So, patience would be appreciated. AdilTalk page 16:06, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
That's all I needed to hear. So I thought it needs to be discussed and it's not so simple like ForceFire says.--Rocket Grunt 16:24, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
Just to keep you in the loop, I have yet to check these. Staraptor issue took most of the free time, but now that it's been mostly resolved, this shouldn't take too long (hopefully). AdilTalk page 05:14, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
Regarding Meganium, please refer to my comment about the ambiguity surrounding Staraptor's dot, which is linked in my previous message above. In a nutshell, size differences of such kind are difficult to differentiate unless explicitly confirmed. It's the same case with Abomasnow. They appeared in two series apart from each other, with one being in DP and the other in XY. Animation styles and character designs may change quite a lot, which makes the visual differences like their chest fur difficult to judge rationally. We should wait for both cases to get verbally addressed in the anime, until then they should be recognized as unknown. AdilTalk page 08:23, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
I agree that Abomasnow shouldn't be considered confirmed just because the only difference is size of one of its features. In case of Meganium, you can check every instance of it appearing on screen and see that before JN020 its antennas weren't only always shorter but also pointing downwards while this one's are pointing upwards while being in static positions.--Rocket Grunt 09:09, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
I strongly disagree with Staraptor's gender being disputable. It's there, so it should count. I fail to see the issue here, TRG. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:26, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
What do you mean? It's not me who made this desicion, gender policy states that minor gender differences, the ones that differ Pokemon only by the size of its feature aren't sufficient as a proof because we've never observed them to be used (except maybe Abomasnow), you can also check that Jessie's and Austin's Dustoxs have the same size antennas.--Rocket Grunt 12:52, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
Okay... I'm just not that good at having long-established facts I'm comfortable with being overturned, that's all. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:16, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
I'll get back to you on the Meganium issue in a few days. AdilTalk page 06:19, 16 September 2020 (UTC)


Congratulations on the staff promotion! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:11, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Thanks man! AdilTalk page 00:25, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

Reversion request

Dear Adil,

My latest edit on Benny (EP146)'s page was quickly reverted, deemed an unnecessary edit by ForceFire as explained on their discussion page. However, the change was to make the page's layout consistent with other one-time anime character pages, none of which include those box-stle of info boxes, which are usually only seen on Main character pages like Ash or Jessie. Plus the minor change in the "later in the episode" was again a consistency thing, because other pages even mentioning the word "episode" in their summary have been flagged as not up to standard. Would you be able to settle this matter? PardescanSlowbro (talk) 21:37, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Hey, I'm a bit preoccupied right now, but I'll get back to you on this hopefully soonish. AdilTalk page 21:57, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Hello. I was wondering if any decision had been made in regards to the matter? PardescanSlowbro (talk) 23:38, 18 December 2020 (UTC)
I've responded on your talk page, did you even read it?--ForceFire 05:13, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

Karate Master

Hi, how are you? The site staff reached a consensus regarding the Karate Master that appeared in episode 34 and the one that already had a previous page?I made a specific page for the one that appeared recently and I was wondering if it has what she needs to go to mainspace--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 03:07, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Hey. We haven't had the chance to discuss it yet, but thanks for bringing it up. I'll let you know when we have a decision. AdilTalk page 05:05, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Pokémon Go event based in the anime

Hi, how are you? Could you help me with something? This week an event in Pokémon Go based on Goh and his Pokémon begins [1]. How do I do with this information? I mean, how do I put it on the pages of the Pokémon involved (like Goh's Cubone, Scyther or Golurk)? Or is this information not notable to put in one article?Can you give me a direction on how to do this? Do I have to ask someone specific for help?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 01:36, 06 November 2020 (UTC)

I'm alright, just a tad busy. Thanks for bringing it up. I'll discuss it with the staff and will let you know. AdilTalk page 11:14, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

Goh's Eternatus

Is User:Reinhartmax/Goh's Eternatus ready for mainspace? - unsigned comment from Reinhartmax (talkcontribs)

Suggestion for Hindi name origin

I think having the Devanagari script for the individual words that form the name would be best, just for completeness's sake. Eg:

फ़्लेमच्छ Flemacch = From flame and Magarmach


फ़्लेमच्छ Flemacch = From flame and मगरमच्छ magarmacch

Anzasquiddles 2222(:D)SSSS (talk page) 03:17, 17 September 2023 (UTC)

That would be great. It occurred to me but I am not well versed when it comes to writing the Devnagri script and I didn't want to assume. Feel free to add them as you see fit. AdilTalk page 08:31, 17 September 2023 (UTC)
Apologies for barging into this conversation directly, but I've always been a proponent of using the मगरमच्छ magarmacch format, even for episode titles. This makes it easier for people who do not read Devnagari script to read a romanization of the Hindi word. For example, since I can't read Japanese, I do not know how to read アチゲータ, but I can understand how Achigator is supposed to sound like. So I would vote for the second format.
According to how the List of Hindi Pokemon names pages is formatted right now, will the format be needed to changed to show both the direct transliteration and a more accurate romanization? For example, while Flemacch is a good equivalent for फ़्लेमच्छ, I think a better spelling can be Flamacch (as it conveys the idea of flame macch). At least in this example, it does not have any diacritics, so it is fine, but for other words, such as #0772 Type: Null, the Hindi name टाइप : ज़ीरो Ṭāip : Zīro is lierally Type: Zero, so maybe including both spellings on each species page is also important. Thoughts? → PikaTepig999 18:34, 17 September 2023 (UTC)
Hindi is a phonetic language (afaik), so any vowels will generally sound as how they are written. Also by "a more accurate romanization" you mean the official trademarked romaji names, which TPC does (they trademarked their preferred romanization of these Pokemon names; eg. that's why it's spelled "Gangar" over there instead of "Gengar", because "Gangar" is trademarked for Japan). Afaik Hindi has not trademarked any romanization names, so i think we should just romanize them as-is. Anzasquiddles 2222(:D)SSSS (talk page) 00:10, 18 September 2023 (UTC)
Yeah, we should stick to as -is, until we have official romanizations. AdilTalk page 13:55, 18 September 2023 (UTC)
TPC has only released the Hindi (Devnagari) spellings of Pokemon. For the Bulbapedia page, they have transliterations according to Wikitionary rules. In most cases, with Pokémon species having entirely new names in Hindi, the romanizations are fine, because there is no official romanization. For some species, which have the same names as in English, the Hindi spelling are also transliterated literally, but until a different "official" romanization is released, I feel we should directly use the English spellings. For example, it is better to use Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle for बल्बासॉर, चारमैंडर, and स्क्वर्टल instead of Balbāsŏr, Cārmaiṇḍar, and Skvarṭal. Even on the page, we have multiple columns, one for a direct, literal transliteration, and one for an unofficial, more accurate romanization (as per Abcboy and Adil's discussion). For Pokemon with entirely new names, I will yield to the general consensus of using literal transliterations, however, my personal opinion will still remain that the transliterations should use the spelling of the loan word from its original language. For example, for the Paradox Pokemon, their Hindi names are made with the prefix "Iron", similar to English. The second word however, may be different. In this case, does it not make sense to write "Iron" instead of "Āiran" ? → PikaTepig999 15:18, 18 September 2023 (UTC)

The Hindi logo for M23 was written directly in Devnagari script, unlike previous movie logos which were just romanizations/transliterations. Could it be considered "official" to have the image cropped to just the Pokemon logo to use it as a header image in the infobox for Pokémon in South Asia, similar to what is done for other country pages? → PikaTepig999 07:38, 12 October 2023 (UTC)

Yeah, sure. Both logos should be in the header. You can go with whatever order. AdilTalk page 20:01, 12 October 2023 (UTC)
That raises the question, should the red logo that was used early in the hungama run be used in the infobox too? → PikaTepig999 22:16, 12 October 2023 (UTC)
Additionally, the infobox only allows one logo image. Can you edit the template to allow a second parameter for logo2, or should I use a collage of the English and Hindi logos? → PikaTepig999 20:23, 17 October 2023 (UTC)
Plus, I found File:Pokémon logo Urdu.png during a search on the archives; no idea about it's origin or whether it is official or not. → PikaTepig999 05:44, 18 October 2023 (UTC)

Hindi Pokemon names

Hey, hope you're doing good. I wanted to bring this page to your attention: User:SuperPikaPool13/List of Hindi Pokémon spellings. Would the information on that page be notable for the mainspace? It contains the Hindi spellings for Hindi names of Pokemon, taken from Pokemon GO internal data. (Currently, I've completed only Gen 1, working on the next.) Other Pokemon name lists also mention previous names/spellings for Pokemon names: List of Thai Pokémon names lists it in trivia while List of Chinese Pokémon names has an entire column in the main list table. Thoughts? → PikaTepig999 21:26, 29 February 2024 (UTC)
