Another update suggestion: new section
:::There doesn't seem to be a way to find out what the actual limit is but we've hit it on pages before and fixing it then became quite the emergency. This is especially relevant with species articles which are already pretty complex and are supposed to be Bulbapedia's flagship resource. Lookup tables of any kind are never really going to be the solution here since even breaking them up won't change the number of parser calls in a significant way.--[[User:MisterE13|<span style="color:#0000FF">Mister</span>]][[User talk:MisterE13|<span style="color:#008000">'''E'''</span>]][[Special:Contributions/MisterE13|<span style="color:#800080">13</span>]] 08:14, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
::::If that's the case, the only alternative I can think is writing a web-crawling bot to automatically update the pages one-by-one whenever a new update (which is somewhat frequent in PoGO) comes along. But that would be something only admins should handle. Otherwise, find someone who has too much time on their hands. :\ [[User:TehPerson|TehPerson]] ([[User talk:TehPerson|talk]]) 17:08, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
 
== Another update suggestion ==
 
This is a v2 that I made, but is incredibly ambitious, found '''[[User:TehPerson/Spindata/GO2|here]]''' (along with thorough documentation that you can copy-paste to use).
 
;Example:
{{Spindata/Head|type=Water}}
{{User:TehPerson/Spindata/GO2|
| ndex=079
| type=Water
| type2=Psychic
| hp=207
| attack=109
| defense=98
| buddy=3
| catchrate=50%
| fleerate=10%
| candy=Slowpoke
| movestardust=50,000
| movecandy=50
| evolution={{MSP|080|Slowbro}} ← {{candy|Slowpoke}}50<br>{{MSP|199|Slowking}} ← {{candy|Slowpoke}}50 + [[File:GO King's Rock.png|20px|link=King's Rock]]
| fast= {{User:TehPerson/learnlist/GO|Water Gun|Water|5|5|3|3}}
{{User:TehPerson/learnlist/GO|Confusion|Psychic|15|20|12|16}}
| charged= {{User:TehPerson/learnlist/GO|Water Pulse|Water|-50|70|-60|70}}
{{User:TehPerson/learnlist/GO|Psyshock|Psychic|-33|65|-45|70}}
{{User:TehPerson/learnlist/GO|Psychic|Psychic|-100|100|-70|100}}
{{User:TehPerson/learnlist/GO|legacy=yes|note=Just kidding, Slowpoke was never able to learn this, ever}}
}}
|}
 
This would basically make our GO information on-par with that of other online sources. It has a format to capture multiple evolution (albeit hard-coded, but that's already the case anyways) and a detailed movelist to denote legacy moves, if any.
 
Other stuff I might be able to include:
* The bottom row can be utilized to add (optional) notes like "Raid only", etc.
* Stat ranges for Power Up level 30, wild Pokemon range (I might need to add some sort of note to clarify that it's Power Up level, not Trainer level).
** Level 20 was chosen as a max Egg range, and lv 40 simply as a max level range.
