Link templates

Please utilize link templates when linking to other articles on Bulbapedia, especially related to moves, Pokémon species, abilities, etc. See the list of link templates on how to use the common ones. I had to fix two of your edits to trivia you added. An example would be {{a|Levitate}} instead of [[Levitate]]. Why not go through your contributions list and fix your edits? Thanks! --rockersk08 03:05, 15 November 2010 (UTC)


Hi Vuvuzela. Please use the word 'and' rather than an ampersand (&) in most cases. The only exceptions should be in titles such as "the Diamond & Pearl series". (Referring to this edit.) —darklordtrom 06:32, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

OK, will do that from now on. XVuvuzela2010X 07:06, 8 December 2010 (UTC)


Uhhh, it didn't say grass before.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 17:28, 17 December 2010 (UTC)


You know, the page doesn't need to be deleted. You can just create your page there now. --SnorlaxMonster 12:56, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Oh wait, I see. You have a page in your userspace to move there. --SnorlaxMonster 12:57, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I thought my page would need to be moved rather than just copied to keep the edit history intact. XVuvuzela2010X 13:01, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Imma leave it to you to correct the links. I'm too tired, and need to sleep right now. --SnorlaxMonster 14:00, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Arceus discussion

Anyone who see the link to the right is invited to The Great Arceus Debate. Vemoth 00:58, 12 February 2011 (UTC)


Can you make me a sig? and can it look like this? its right at the bottom mesuxelf 15:54, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Is this OK?

If you want a list of colour codes, they have them on Wikipedia.
If you need it made differently or something, you should reply to my forum page, as while I am fine, the admins don't really like this kind of discussion on the wiki. :( XVuvuzela2010X 19:40, 13 February 2011 (UTC)


What is the justification for creating a Generation III learnset for Bonsly if it didn't exist in Generation III? --rockersk08 17:21, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Because Bonsly does exist in Gen III. XVuvuzela2010X 17:24, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Okay, so it does. Perhaps what I get for not playing games outside the main. But it isn't catchable in that game. This would also mean that Muchlax would have to get a Generation III page. I'm sure the learnset pages correspond to their official generation debut, thus those pages are not needed, but a reference could be made. Either way, you should at least speak with a higher-up staff member to be safe. --rockersk08 17:30, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Munchlax is different. Although they both have index numbers, Munchlax was never programmed to be used in battle, and has no box sprite, menu sprite, pc animation, or 3d battle model, and thus is completely impossible to use in battle, and if you try, the game freezes. Bonsly on the other hand, has all of the above, and is essentially just the 387th Pokemon. XVuvuzela2010X 17:36, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Large scale editing

Where should I start. Reverse holos. That category is pointless, as EVERY card since Legendary Collection has been released as reverse holofoil. a category for 90% of like 6000 pages is not something that should be done. A note can easily be added onto the holographic page. Secondly, your trivias over different resistances and weaknesses. Vibrava, Lati@s, Flygon, Venomoth, and Beedrill: your trivias over resistance are easily explained by in-game weakness and resistance. The simpler of two viable explanations is always the right one. That's a world known fact about how things work. Large scale projects, especially category based need to be proposed to a Senior Admin or higher, as well as the project leader. Also, your JA rights are on a temporary basis, and they can and will be removed at any time if there are problems with your editing habits. Just thought I should warn you. MaverickNate 09:07, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

The only TCG Weakness/Resistance related edit I have made recently is the one to the Colorless (TCG) page, about the resistances the Dragon types have during the EX series. I forgot about the ones you mentioned, since they were made at the end of January, though I apologise as I should have remembered to revert them at the time.
As for the category for reverse holos, it was obviously intended for "proper" reverse holos (e.g Southern Islands), not the ones found in booster packs. I didn't think I would need to run it by an admin due to the limited number of those cards.
And as for adding the Category:Holographic cards, (like to Dark Slowbro and Metal Energy), I thought that would be fine too, seeing as almost every other card that is holographic is included in that category, though I presume reverting this was just a mistake. XVuvuzela2010X 14:56, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
Also in addition to Dark Slowbro and Metal Energy, there was also Mew, Meowth, Eevee, Captain Pikachu, Professor Oak's Visit, Roseanne's Research, Armor Fossil, Skull Fossil, Darkness Energy, Machamp, Smeargle, Championship Arena, Pokémon Illustrator, Hungry Snorlax, and Mew, Vileplume, Togepi, Ledyba, Marill, Slowking, Pichu. All of these are holographic or were later released as a holographic card (promotional), so I added the Holographic cards category, (lthe latter ones had it before they were replaced with the reverse holographic cards category) but by reverting all edits to these pages it was removed. Just thought it would be best to note incase it was a mistake since there were quite a few. XVuvuzela2010X 11:41, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Pokemon Black and White Version

Why did you delete my contribution? Check out these pages to prove that I am right. --Branfili Talk My edits 13:24, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

P.S. Return my contribution after that.

Rufflet and Braviary cannot produce Rufflet eggs. No matter how hard you try.--ForceFire 13:55, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Did you mean Vullaby eggs?--Branfili Talk My edits 14:09, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Being up at 10 pm isn't helpin me at all Yeah, I meant Vullaby Eggs.--ForceFire 14:17, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Switches request

I hope you don't mind me requesting something. ^^; You know how to do switches, right? I have no idea how to do them, and the Wormadam page needs one really badly. Do you think you could do that? Littlmiget123 21:16, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Of course I don't mind. I can start on it tomorrow (I've been working for nearly 12 hours, so I'm knackered, and need my bed). Is there any particular time you want the switch to switch? (like every hour, day, etc.). I could probably do one for Burmy too. XVuvuzela2010X 20:47, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Great! ^^ The time doesn't matter. How often do the other pages (Cherrim, Castform, etc) switch? Yeah, Burmy could be done as well, if you don't mind. ^^ Thanks so much! :D Littlmiget123 21:14, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Burmy and Wormadam already switch... Every day to be exact.--MisterE13 22:15, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
The anime pictures also need to switch depending on the type that's showing. Littlmiget123 22:22, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Wormadam's done but Burmy only has the one picture.--MisterE13 22:32, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Only Plant Cloak Burmy appeared in the anime, so that explains that. XP Thank you very much MisterE. ^^ Littlmiget123 23:00, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
No problem :) *Stops spamming someone elses Talk Page*.--MisterE13 23:04, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Never use userspace templates in the mainspace. They have to actually be approved and moved before they are used. MaverickNate 20:10, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Whoops, I didnt relise. Any idea when they will be moved (I was going to re-edit once it was approved)? XVuvuzela2010X 20:14, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
First, you should make a test page as the talk page for one of them, showing all the different switch outcomes and subtemplates. Then ask an admin about it. We'll likely discuss it privately and leave some time for other people to comment on the test page. No template should be moved from the userspace to the templatespace until it has been thoroughly tested. Werdnae (talk) 20:28, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
Well, each one would only be used on the pages of their respective Pokemon and its relatives, like Nincada's evobox template. So they would always look pretty much the same. - unsigned comment from Vuvuzela2010 (talkcontribs)
You need to test each of your new templates, to double/triple check that it works as you think it does, and show us that it does. Even something as simple as changing the outcomes of a switch statement can cause it to stop working completely. It's not so much a matter of us knowing what it will look like, it's a matter of making sure that you haven't accidentally broken something. The discussions us admins will have (privately or otherwise) will be on the concept, as well as the design. Werdnae (talk) 06:32, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
There isnt any switch involved, but I'll try and test it anyway. Though they were tested earlier on the pages they were meant to be on, if you want to have a look (Nidoran♀, Nidorina, Nidoqueen, Nidoran♂, Nidorino, Nidoking, Volbeat, Illumise, Latias and Latios). Also, the talk page for Nidoran♀ has the template already. XVuvuzela2010X 10:36, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
Was that really so hard? I'll bring it up with the other admins. No promise on a quick decision. Werdnae (talk) 22:12, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
Right, so that's what you meant by making a talk page (embarrasing). XVuvuzela2010X 22:35, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
Roughly how long do you mean? I know these things take time, but obviously I don't want it dragging on for months on end. XVuvuzela2010X 23:15, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
Sorry about the delay. Staff I've talked to think that it has value, but it needs to be presented more clearly, and only for the ones that can actually produce eggs (i.e. No Lati@s). Werdnae (talk) 00:28, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Ok, so can the Lati one just get deleted then? To be honest, I don't really know what I'm doing with the Nido one. I don't think there would be any point in showing the other gender's evolutions, for example Nidorino & Nidoking on Nidoqueen's page (since these are not shown on any other branched-evo page, for example Wormadam's), but I dont know what I need to edit in my template first. XVuvuzela2010X 02:26, 20 June 2011 (UTC)


When a user does something this wrong, it's best to leave them a message. This user should at the very least be warned about the preview button, and also about the current trivia rule. -- MAGNEDETH 22:13, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Yeah I wasn't really sure whether that would be major enough for a warning, since although laughable, it seemed to be in good faith. Plus I would have thought it would be generally reserved for Admins to warn another user. XVuvuzela2010X 22:21, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Anyone can give a warning (though it is preferred more seasoned users do it than newbies), and the warning itself can vary in severity. Although a user in good faith, they still may do something wrong. So in turn, a polite warning would be best. Consider it more of a teaching than a warning. -- MAGNEDETH 20:20, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Neo Premium Files

Unfortunately,the correct name of them is the other way around. We used "Neo 2 Premium File" before we started directing time and effort towards correcting all the Japanese release names. Nuva-kal had gone around to some of the cards and corrected them to "Neo Premium File 2", but it was not publicly known that this was going on. (They are the Neo Premium Files 1, 2, and 3 if you have an urge to fix them). Thanks for taking the effort to fix something you noticed was inconsistent; it just happened to be a confusing mess when you tried. MaverickNate 03:31, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about that, I noticed that all the relevant Pokemon (TCG) pages all linked to the Neo 2 Premium File, so I just assumed that was the correct one. I'll go and fix them. Also, one thing I want to ask, some of the card pages link to a (currently non existing) Neo Premium File 2 category, yet not to the Neo Premium File category. What should I do about these? XVuvuzela2010X 03:45, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
The only categories used should be Category:Neo Premium File 1 cards, Category:Neo Premium File 2 cards, and Category:Neo Premium File 3 cards. The other one should be phased out and tagged for deletion. MaverickNate 03:55, 14 June 2011 (UTC)


I was looking at your tabs... Seadra isn't a Dragon type, Kingdra is. Also, Blaziken isn't a Flying type. Toadstool 17:25, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

I know. I put those there because I count them as 'honourary' members of those types. Like how most people would probably count Gyarados as being a Dragon type. XVuvuzela2010X 17:31, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

The Point?

There wasn't one. But that pic of dolly looked so inviting on the bulbanews page... haha SuiScorpio 09:42, 28 June 2011 (UTC)


I'm pretty sure the word native here is used to describe the first region in which the Pokémon were introduced. MaverickNate 22:09, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Fair enough, I've not actually seen this episode, it just looked a bit weird the way it was written. XVuvuzela2010X 22:24, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

About the edit you reverted...

The article for Pokémon Black and White says, and I quote: "While Volbeat and Illumise are only available in the wild in Black and White respectively, Illumise can breed with any male Pokémon in the Bug egg group, Human-Like egg group or Ditto to produce eggs that have an 50% chance of hatching into Volbeat. However, breeding Volbeat with Ditto will not produce Illumise eggs."

I added Volbeat in there because Illumise was in there.
~~LDEJRuff~~ 6:52, 8 July, 2011 (EDT)

Sorry if it seemed like I was snapping at you at the time, but there have been a lot of people adding Volbeat to that page. And it turns out that in Gen V Volbeat can now produce Illumise eggs, so Illumise has also been removed and the trivia point about Volbeat and Illumise has now been updated. XVuvuzela2010X 11:16, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

You beat me to it =D

I started deleting the aforementioned things because they were once fully evolved. Then I saw the special abilities of Togetic and Seadra in their respected articles, and had to log out before I could make the edits. And yes, Venonat and Remoraid are exceptions.

No problems in my side, you? Also, why not reword and state "Since it was once a fully evolved Pokemon, ---------- can learn Hyper Beam and Giga Impact". Wall of text, lol. ~ Blitzamirin ~ 23:04, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure if that should be stated, as while it is true of in-game data, canonically, those Pokemon have never been fully evolved. An example is M12, where Probopass appears 1000 years in the past. Though if you want to add it, I won't remove it or anything. And I'm not having any problems over here, thanks for asking though. :) XVuvuzela2010X 23:21, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
Nah, now that I see them, they don't need edits. You edited them to fit better. Well done. ~ Blitzamirin ~ 23:44, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

My edit

Why did you revert my message? I am a talking Scrafty! Talk to me! 21:19, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Because it's not supposed to be asked. The number of edits needed is a secret that only the highest Admins know (that is, if even they know). It's to stop people using Bulbapedia and their userpage as just a Bebo or Facebook. XVuvuzela2010X 21:39, 11 August 2011 (UTC)


Stop adding it in. The new sitenotice is to let people know Bulbawikis will be closed. That does not give you the go ahead to go on a trivia adding spree. Unless Deth explicitly says you can fully add trivia, it's still not acceptable. --P S Yライダー 16:04, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I didnt realise. I'll stop adding them. XVuvuzela2010X 16:08, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
Also, you might want to do research into your claims next time...Skarmory has a beak, it can learn Peck and Pluck, and best of all, it can learn Drill Peck by breeding, since Gen II in fact, as well as through the Dream World. Also, Liepard not learning Shadow Force? That's Giratina's signature move, there's no way Liepard will get it. So, please check first into what you're adding. Thanks. --P S Yライダー 12:28, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Though it is a bird, its "beak" does look more like a mouth, like Lugia and Archeops. And Nidoran♂, Goldeen, Maractus, Karrablast and Piloswine can also learn Peck, and Rattata and Zubat can learn Pluck. Unlike these two, Drill Peck's Japanese name actually mentions beak, and is exclusively learned by bird Pokemon. As for signature moves, they come and go. And I'm not really sure why my edits to Bellsprout, Rogenrolla and Victini (though that one wasnt by yourself) were undone (besides the trivia ban). As far as I am aware, Roggenrolla and its evolution dont have eyes, unless the anime has shown otherwise? And the trivia that was added to Karen, Morty and Steven is also on Flint's page. XVuvuzela2010X 03:47, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
That thing in the middle of Roggenrola's face is its eye. Yes it's shown the anime to act like an eye, dilating pupil in all, but it just seems obvious that it's an eye even with out it as Gigalith's eyes are similar. Same with Boldore. I removed the Victini being the only Pokémon whose reason for its placement in the Pokédex is revealed because it's not really important to know. --ケンジガール 04:51, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Fair enough, though in Roggenrola's Pokedex entriy, it does state that the hexagon is its ear, as daft as it sounds. XVuvuzela2010X 05:03, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Also, late reply, but the Skarmory thing was my bad, it was early morning and I misread it as it not being able to learn Drill Peck, so apologies on that. As for the Gym Leaders, we don't know why they didn't give them certain Pokemon, but it's pretty safe to say for diversity, and it's kinda obvious to say that Karen doesn't have Sneasel or Tyranitar, simply by looking at her party in such. They could have used location as a factor as well, Morty being near Gastly and far away from Mt. Silver, point is it's really not notable to point it out. --P S Yライダー 20:59, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Before you continue

Stop for a moment. Some of them do have that there, while some don't. The staff is going to have to decide what to do in this case. --P S Yライダー 15:24, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

OK. XVuvuzela2010X 15:26, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
I should add that it doesnt really fit well with some of them (like the starters) which were revealed during Gen IV. XVuvuzela2010X 15:29, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
Introduced, not revealed. --P S Yライダー 15:32, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
I think it's still a bit ambiguous. Saying it was introduced in Generation V gives the impression that it was never seen before Black and White were released. XVuvuzela2010X 15:38, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
They always reveal Pokemon before their generation, but they are introduced for catching and playing in the new main series game. Togepi was revealed in Gen I, it was introduced in GSC. --P S Yライダー 15:43, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
It makes sense for Togepi, etc, but it wouldnt sound right for Bonsly, since from a technical view, it was introduced in Gen III/XD. XVuvuzela2010X 15:50, 1 September 2011 (UTC)


In the APNG Anime Maker, how did you save the combined images? PattyMan 22:52, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

I get the images from the episodes by using imagegrab, resize them (if needed) using ImRe, then open them and save them with APNG. Hope that helps. XVuvuzela2010X 23:21, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
I grabbed a whole bunch of images and placed them on APNG Anime Maker. I clicked on the save button and it gave me a non-animated image on the desktop. Wasn't sure if it will animate properly. PattyMan 23:46, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
They wont animate on the desktop if they are PNG, but they will animate when they are uploaded. If you use Dropbox, move the image to the Public folder then ricght link and copy the public link, then it will animate when viewed in Firefox. XVuvuzela2010X 23:53, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
You can open images in firefox straight from your computer too. Right click -> Open With, choose Firefox. Werdnae (talk) 00:06, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Never thought of that. Cheers. XVuvuzela2010X 00:19, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Only just noticed this section, but I might as well say that drag the image icon from the folder it is in straight onto firefox and it shows the image animated, which saves time and having to reopen and close firefox.----Chalkwriter 19:36, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

That template

Sorry I got a little grumpy at you. Something I want to happen across the whole wiki is for all templates to be tested before they put into use, because of their potential to propagate mistakes. Even relatively simple ones, just because some templates (including the recent move template changes) got rushed out without adequate testing, and the damage that can be done by a single typo really showed. So again, sorry about that. Werdnae (talk) 07:55, 20 September 2011 (UTC)


As I started looking down the article I noticed that it is black in Anime and art, but navy blue in games. So I'm going to change now it so says it is ether mostly black or navy blue. Truthseeker4449 22:26, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Form differences and Basculin

I made the edit because the different forms of Basculin have different abilities. Stats and types are the same, however. --Enervation 00:12, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

I've modified the template to include Basulin's Rock Head, and added the template back to the Form Differences page. Vuvuzela2010 18:44, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Hey Slowpoke guy

We're probably goign to need "File:Lorelei Slowbro Shellder.png"/"File:Lorelei Slowbro Shellder Adventures.png" "File:Lorelei Slowking Shellder.png", "File:Solidad's Slowbro Shellder.png", "File:Lorelei Slowking Shellder.png" "File:Slowking anime Shellder.png", "File:Sham Slowking Shellder.png", "File:Arthur Shellder.png", and "File:Prima Slowbro Shellder.png"/"File:Lorelei Slowbro Shellder anime.png".--MisterE13 19:40, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Don't have a clue what you mean, lol. Are you wanting these files moved? Vuvuzela2010 19:46, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
No sir, I could do that on my own :P we don't have any files like that and I, for one, think we could use them and have no reliable way of getting suitable ones.--MisterE13 19:50, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
Oh, right I get you now. I'll do my best with the anime pics, but I don't know much about the manga appearances, but I'll try and find them anyway. Vuvuzela2010 19:55, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Editing templates

If you're uncertain how to do something in an existing template, could I please get you to make a mockup in your userspace and preview substituting that on the page, rather than editing the existing template? Editing templates repeatedly stresses the servers, as it has to be updated everywhere it is used every time it is saved. I won't count it towards the userspace limit testing templates like that either (just please don't go overboard). Thanks, and keep up the good work. Werdnae (talk) 02:05, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Right, I never thought about it updating on every page... Its been removed anyway*, so it doesnt really matter now, but thanks for telling me anyway. Vuvuzela2010 02:12, 16 October 2011 (UTC)


Please try to watch what you say in edit summaries. You've had at least two summaries hidden in the last 24 hours because of profanity. This is a kids site. Let's try to keep what we say Rated E, okay? Thanks! Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 17:34, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Fair enough, I do it without thinking sometimes :( I'll make sure that it won't happen anymore though. Vuvuzela2010 19:18, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
Wait, what's the second one? (besieds Lugia (movie 2)? I don't remember any others. Vuvuzela2010 19:21, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
Last night on the Archives, Kenji-girl hid a revision of yours where you dropped an F-bomb. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 19:27, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
Ah right, I remember that now... and the mess of the order the Johto Who's That Pokémon? is was in. Thanks for fixing it btw. :) Vuvuzela2010 19:43, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Regarding Project Globe

Your article is coming along nicely, but needs some more information on the anime primarily. Also do try to integrate content from articles such as Sky1, ITV1, CITV et al as those can all become redirects if this becomes a real article. Let me know if you have any questions or anything! :D --ZestyCactus 00:01, 25 October 2011 (UTC)


Okey... but look at Starly. It's exclusive to White and item template doesn't have field for Black filled-in, unlike the FireRed and Staryu. Marked +-+-+ 20:44, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

I'm working on some additions to add to that template, so that all games the Pokemon is in can be added, and it can clearly state if a Pokemon has a held item in a game or not. The current way of only adding games a Pokemon is legitimately available in can be confusing and misleading. Vuvuzela2010 20:50, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Misty's Egg

Do you really think we should add Misty's Togepi under those EP articles? May's egg wasn't added in AG150. I mean, it might be a spoiler for some, and it was Brock's at the time, anyway. --LimeGreenCharizard-- 21:14, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't think its a spoiler, since thats what the summaries are for, but I never thought about Togepi's ownership. Though I think the way you've linked it now is fine. Vuvuzela2010 22:16, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
Okay. And thank you for updating EP's with everyone's eggs. --LimeGreenCharizard-- 22:26, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
To add on this conversation, it is a spoiler when you add it to episodes in which the Pokémon is still in its egg. It is not stated in any of the summaries of pre-hatched eggs what the Pokémon is. Let's say someone who watched EP046 decides to read the article but they had not yet watched EP050. Yeah... I know that's extremely rare but there are still some people out there who haven't seen it. They are not expecting for what was in the egg to be revealed so obviously.
Also I don't believe eggs should count as characters or debuts. It's not a Pokémon, yet. I think it's similar if the anime ever decided to throw a pregnant woman in an episode. Would we ever put "Unborn baby" in the characters too? Please, in a situation like this, could you please come and discuss it with me first so I can have an opinion on it? You don't have to do it for everything but preferably anything that involves a new idea and mass updating. Thank you. --ケンジガール 06:40, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
I guess it makes sense when you use the pregnant example. Sorry about that. Vuvuzela2010 12:00, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Okay, the coins have been added.

alternately colored pokemon

ok im so sorry about this post here im new and i dont get anything i was trying to work out how to make a new topic here but i couldn't find out Sorry. So what this is about is List of alternately colored pokemon in the anime i was thinking maybe you could put May's bulbasaur and the red snorlax from training daze. I know that the red snorlax was not actually a snorlax but when jessie,james,cassidy and butch where told they did not react as if they had not heard of it but i belive there is a legendary red snorlax but of course its up to you i defanatly believe May's bulbasaur should be there though.

kybett98 October 13th 2011

I had actually added Bulbasaur to this page, but I guess it can also be added to the alternately coloured Pokemon page as well, since Butterfree and Lapras are there too. As for the Red Snorlax, I haven't seen that episode, but since its just some guy in a suit, it probably shouldnt be added, unless it appeared again in the episode under different circumstances (like in a film or something)?Vuvuzela2010 20:46, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Yes of course i have been searching for some more and i found a trading card of a kabuto its very old i was not sure where to request it though here is the link to it and this is the page i found it on and can someone tell me how to make a new topic on this page for alternately colored pokemon

kybett98 november 1st 2011

If you want to add a new section to a talk page, click the + at the top of the page, next to edit.
The Kabuto does appear to be a different colour, so I've added it to a new page for alternately coloured Pokemon in other media. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 21:53, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
ok cool i have found more aswell if you want me to link them also one of them actually looks different not just the color

kybett98 november 1st 2011

Yeah that's fine, just link them here. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 00:46, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Ok so here a rhyhorn thats more of blue then grey and has pointy spikes instead of usually being blunt and here is a cloyster that is blue instead of a dark purple color here is a doduo that is a golden color instead of brown Here is a dodrio that is more golden then brown Here is a graveler that has golden fingers Here is a venomoth that has different colored eyes Here is a bulbasaur with different markings on his head Also iv decided to watch every single pokemon episode so i can help you and play all the games iv got. :)
I wouldnt say those ones are differently coloured, Rhyhorn's Dream World artwork also shows it to be blue. Sugimori's artwork style varies with each Generation, and in the first Generation, the colours are usually a bit off, likely due to their age. And Venomoth's eyes are yellow because its using an attack (though it has been depicted with yellow spots on its wings). Vuvuzela2010 Δ 15:22, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

ok sure but then isnt it the same with the kabuto?

kybett98 november 2nd 2011

I'm not sure, as its not just a different shade of colour, it looks like its a completely different colour, though that may be down to it using Harden. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 15:53, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

ok iv been watching some of the episodes and in the 1st or second on there is a coo coo clock and a little wooden green pidgey comes out. But i wasnt shore weather mention it or not because its not actually a pokemon. And also in pokemon mystery dungeon red and blue rescue team the face picture for golem seems to have a golden face and a sort of black shaded shell

kybett98 november 3rd 2011

The Pidgey shouldn be counted as its not an actual Pidgey. For Mystery Dungeon, I think thats just the different art style, so It's not a different variation. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 19:06, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

yeah thats why i wasnt shore to mention the pidgey and the golems overworld are normal so i think it is just a error

AR Markers

Hi, I notice you added a Random Marker to the list of AR Markers. Seeing as they're the only ones missing, any chance you could add a Copying Marker to the sheet? Bluesun 00:44, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but I don't actually know what Copying Markers are, and I've tried Googling it, but I can't find out anything about them. I've just noticed that the Pokedex 3D page says there are 12 Random Markers and 12 Copying Markers with special functions, will I need to find all of them, or do they all just do the same thing? Vuvuzela2010 Δ
Here's one of them I found through this topic, they copy the nearest Pokémon to them, else if there are no other Pokémon, appear as a blank Pokéball. They all do the same thing so if there's only one Random Marker, one Copying Marker should do fine. Bluesun 06:29, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Cheers, I've added it to the AR Marker list. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 06:41, 7 November 2011 (UTC)


To be specific, how do you create randomized sets of quotes and lyrics to appear on your page each time someone refreshes it? It looks cool, and I'd like to do it on my page. Virtually signed, EvilKirikizan speaking! 22:41, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Its done through the use of switches. Not really sure how to explain it right, but I'll try my best. Ttyping {{#switch: {{#expr: {{#time: U}} mod 3}}|0=Cheryl Cole|1=Oasis (band)|2=Kylie Minogue}} will cause it to display this:Cheryl Cole, which will be ether Cheryl Cole, Oasis (band), or Kylie Minogue. Depending on how often you want it to switch, replace the U with H for every hour, D for every day, or keep the U for it to switch every time the page is refreshed. If you want it to link to something, put something before and after the switch template, for example: [[ and ]]. Hope this helps. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 23:15, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

What Shiny Sprites?

What Shiny Party Sprites? As far as I know, even a shiny Gyarados appears blue when viewing the party sprites. If Gen V changed that, then forget about this question. --Truthseeker4449 01:07, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Gen V didn't introduce them sadly, but custom ones for Pokemon infoboxes are used in some of the Pokemon infoboxes. (See Red Gyarados and Pink Butterfree for examples). Vuvuzela2010 Δ 01:12, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Mirage Mewtwo

I do get where you're coming from; I had these up as well before in the past. But I only kept the ones where Mewtwo physically did itself. The reason for this is because the move entries on move pages show how ALL Pokemon of the species did it. I don't think a regular Mewtwo is going to form a Tropius head out of its hands and fire a SolarBeam. I mean, Mewtwo can actually learn SolarBeam, but it probably doesn't do that. Do you see what I mean? Littlmiget123 17:06, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Template For the Coins

So how close are you to finishing the Coin Template?

Creoix 20:15, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

I'm going to add the set symbols soon, and I'll add a switch to the template so that coins with multiple images can show them all. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 13:23, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Different prints

Different prints are for different artworks. If the artwork is the same, it is considered a duplicate file and deleted. MaverickNate 03:32, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

OK. I think one of Charizard's Legendary Collection images should stay though. The artwork on the non-holographic versions is clearer than the holographic Base Set one (same reason for some of the Neo destiny Shining Pokemon, like Shining Steelix (Neo Destiny 112). What about Japanese cards? I was going to upload the Japanese Slowking (Southern Islands 14), since its the only non Gen I evolved Pokémon card to feature the original card design, and it goes with the trivia piece about it. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 18:45, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
But you didn't scan it. You stole it from ebay. Notice the site stamp? Obviously not. You can only upload scans of cards you've done yourself. Everything else is a copyright violation. MaverickNate 20:09, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
So delete the one with the stamp then. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 20:31, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
That's not the extent of what happens. It makes your all uploads unreliable and gives them each the potential for deletion, not just the trigger image. You can't just go around sponging the internet for things to take. You must ask permission and give credit where credit is due. MaverickNate 20:22, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Mirage Pokémon

Can you help me with the moves on the Mirage Pokémon page, I have uploaded the images for them. PattyMan 01:05, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

No problem, I'll do it now. Btw, its been suggestend on the talk page that each Mirage Pokémon should have its own section, if you want me to do that too? Or should I just leave that bit for now? Vuvuzela2010 Δ 01:09, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
Couold you post a link to one of the images? I've tried looking for them myself, but I cant find them. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 01:13, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
I've added a few of the attacks in, but I've left some of these attacks out of the template for now, since the Pokemon using the attacks need to be checked first (since its not actually Mewtwo using the attacks). Vuvuzela2010 Δ 01:35, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Here's this one. You can give Mewtwo its own section since it played a major role in the special. One of those elemental attacks it was using was Psybeam. PattyMan 01:43, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Ninetales's Psychic

Perhaps place it in the section of the Anime move errors that states that it resembles a move? Littlmiget123 19:32, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

I think thats fine :). Vuvuzela2010 Δ 19:41, 21 January 2012 (UTC)


A few of us others are baffled at why you decided to take the time to do this, instead of just doing the simple copy/paste/change that was necessary to add the actual content: {{Episodelistbody|PK24|none|メロエッタのキラキラリサイタル|Meloetta's Glittery Recital|unaired|July 14, 2012}}. You linked to PK24, so you obviously knew that the page existed. Thus, it should not be a stretch to assume that you knew about the content the page had (which was everything you needed to know for the Pikachu short page update). I personally would like to know--and I'm sure I'm not the only one--why you wouldn't just update the page yourself. It was a simple fix that probably took as much time as it did to add the outdated tag. MaverickNate 05:01, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

The whole page needed an update, not just that section. XVuvuzela2010X 20:07, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Cryogonal in Movie 15

Can I re-add the M15 note to Cryogonal's page, since it's up on the movie's page now? I don't really fully understand all the circumstances around it, but since the movie page itself has been updated, couldn't it go back? --The Great Butler 05:05, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Seeing as how the anime section for Meloetta states that it will debut in PK23, and both debuts were revealed in the same poster, which has now been added to M15's page, I see no harm in adding it back. XVuvuzela2010X 19:35, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you

thanks for the help! I had a feeling {{tt code had something to do with the * thing, but I couldn't gets it right. Also thanks for not undoing the edit calling it stupid, unneeded or pointless. Yamitora1 19:32, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

No problem, glad I could help. To be honest, I'm not even sure what the tt actually means, (something like translate probably) it's not the most obvious template name. XVuvuzela2010X 20:10, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
ToolTip. It's the actual name of the hovertext thing. Werdnae (talk) 20:49, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Linking to images

When linking to images, you must use [[a:File]] instead of just [[:File]]. Otherwise, they appear on the Wanted Pages. MaverickNate 06:08, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Template:User Country

Why are there listed places like Udmurtia (which is a federal subject of Russia, not a country), Vojvodina (autonomous province of Serbia, again, not a country) and breakaway provinces such as Transnistria, Abkhazia, etc... (none of which are recognized as countries by the international comunity)? Tempest370 11:37, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

The list includes non-sovereign territories (autonomous republics, etc.), and the republics of Russia can also fall under this definition. Unrecognised countries are still countries, but they can still be considered to be just territories, for those who would not recognise them as states. XVuvuzela2010X 11:52, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
So does that mean that we could add Sealand to the list? And the EU is also more of a "country" (it has it's own elected parliament, currency, flag, anthem and it's possible to apply for EU citizenship) than any of those unrecognised territories and autonomous provinces. Tempest370 11:58, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
The list has included non-sovereign territories since it was created, so I don't think they sould be removed. And not all of the unrecognised countries are completely unrecognised. The problem with only including 'recognised' countries is that it would likely end up leading to edit wars, like for example, a Saudi user removing the Israeli tag because they don't recognise them. I'd consider Sealand to be in a different category, since 4 people live there. Don't know how to properly reply to the EU one, but it's more of an international organisation than a country. XVuvuzela2010X 12:16, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
OK then, although I still think we should remove Udmurtia since there are another 25 russian republics, and we shouldn't IMHO include them in this list for the same reason we don't include all 50 US states (we instead put them in a separate list, could we perhaps do the same for Russia?). And the EU is an "economic and political union or confederation". It ceased being merely an "international organisation" ever since the Lisbon Treaty. Tempest370 13:35, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
I'll remove the Russian republics, but though I would support a seperate list for them, they wouldnt be notable for their own list like America's states have. I think the reason we have the state list is because there are hundreds of users that identify as American, but there's only 7 users that identify themselves as Russian. XVuvuzela2010X 21:14, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Hey, would the two of you mind not adding things to that list unless they are actually used? There's no need to have a list of hypothetical designs that may or may not ever actually be used. Werdnae (talk) 23:12, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Nor is there any harm done in having it. Or is there? Tempest370 23:36, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Remember this is an encyclopedia about Pokemon, not countries. Adding stuff to that page is effectively a personal edit. It does nothing in the slightest to help the encyclopedia. We're not a list of places in the world. The importance of that page is very, very, very, very low, and I am currently discussing with several admins about removing it entirely. The template is set up in such a way that any user can put whatever they want there. A list of places with it is relatively unneccessary when we can simply have a page explaining how to use the template. Werdnae (talk) 23:46, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Seems fair enough, I'll won't add any until theyre actually needed (when I added Bulgaria, it was because the category was recently created, but there was no tag). XVuvuzela2010X 23:49, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

jpg files

Sorry. Jusy I downloading photos from and there are jpg files.Pawel10s 16:22, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

List of moves by anime debut

You there? Wondering if you still have some plans with this, or can I take it? I've asked an admin before, but there's no answer yet... so I guess I could also ask you. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 15:50, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Yeah that's fine, I haven't had much time to edit the wiki recently (though I still get email notifications), so feel free to revamp it however you like ☺. XVuvuzela2010X 09:47, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
Done! Parabolic Charge included, though with ??? as number; also left the hidden Pokémon since they could prove useful for G6 (it's easier to do this when you already have the index number and you just need to fill the rest). Marked +-+-+ (talk) 19:10, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Red link in template

One of your tables in User talk:Vuvuzela2010/Template:HeldItems is causing a red link. Zesty Cactus wasn't comfortable with editing your stuff and told me to ask you to do what you will with it. Glik (talk) 04:57, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying me, I've fixed the problem on that page, turns out it was an issue with the event template, so I just removed the link in that template. But I'm happy for other people to edit my templates and stuff since I'm not that active, so feel free in the future :) XVuvuzela2010X 08:38, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
Normally, I would have done it myself if it was an easy fix, but I couldn't figure it out so I figured better safe than sorry XD thanks for taking care of it bro ^o^. --ZestyCactus 06:00, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
