PS I will add the link on Bulbapedia, PokéWiki and ポケモンWiki because I have accounts on all three. --[[User:TheICTLiker4|<span style="color:#7b7">'''TheICT'''</span>]][[Special:Contributions/TheICTLiker4|<span style="color:#585">'''Liker4'''</span>]]<sup>[[User talk:TheICTLiker4|<span style="color:#363">'''piszże do mnie'''</span>]]</sup> 11:19, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
 
== what does HS stand for ==
 
Hello
Recently you renamed side stories episodes from I.E. [[HS01|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?

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 [[HS03|We're No Angels!]] with [[HS12|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.

: '''H'''ōsō special, see [[Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station]], that [[Pokémon Chronicles|Chronicles]] are, in part, based on (second paragraph). --[[User:Arseny1992|Arseny1992]] ([[User talk:Arseny1992|talk]]) 03:46, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I'd like to have your (personal, non-binding) input on a few things:
#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.)
#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 [https://web.archive.org/web/19980121112202fw_/http://www.gamefreak.co.jp:80/POKEMON/INTER/ATSUKO/INTER_AT.HTM said] she designed "スピア" rather than {{p|Beedrill|スピアー}}, for example, and I wonder what to do with that.)
#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 <nowiki>{{DL|A|B|C}}</nowiki> rather than <nowiki>[[A#B|C]]</nowiki>? (I hope you get what I mean.)
Thank you for answering. [[User:Nescientist|Nescientist]] ([[User talk:Nescientist|talk]]) 13:04, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
 
:#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.)
:#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.
:#Parallelism in a list of other section links using DL, perhaps; in general the plain link for cases like that is much clearer IMO. --[[User:Abcboy|Abcboy]] ([[User talk:Abcboy|talk]]) 15:19, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
