Editing multiple sections.

Just thought I'd let you know, if you'd like to edit multiple sections of a single page at once, you can hit "edit this page" at the top of the article in order to avoid potentially cluttering the edit history and recent change log with multiple edits. Thanks! Landfish7 05:29, 2 March 2022 (UTC)

French translator

Before you go crazy with those, we are not adding those as we are not sure of the validity of the statements the translator claims, as they may just be his own opinions on what the Japanese names may be rather than him actually speaking with the original creators. A former staff member, who is Japanese, even debunked one of his origins at the time. So for now, please don't add them until we know for sure those are the actual origins the original creators intended.--ForceFire 04:39, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

Noted, thanks.Anzasquiddles (talk) 05:28, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

Runerigus minimum level

When you edited Runerigus's page, you stated that you moved the minimum level bit to Yamask's page, but you didn't do so yet. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 21:12, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

"Because Galarian Yamask needs at least 50 HP in order to take the amount of damage required for it to evolve without fainting, it cannot evolve into Runerigus until level 15 at minimum (assuming Yamask has 31 IVs and 240 EVs in HP), as that is the lowest level that it can have the required HP." that's in Yamask's page now. also in my contribs page, Yamask's edit went live first, then Runerigus's. Anzasquiddles (talk) 21:31, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
EDIT: yea i see what you meant now, i prolly should've published Runerigus's edit first. Anzasquiddles (talk) 21:40, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
Oh, I see. I just skimmed by it and never noticed you moving that bit to Yamask's page. Now I did notice. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 16:41, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

Old Verses

  A page you created has just been nominated for quick deletion.

I don't feel the redirect "Old Verses" is absolutely necessary because of how MediaWiki links work. [[Old Verse]]s gives Old Verses. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 18:32, 8 June 2022 (UTC)

Cufant name origin

I changed Cufant's name origin to match the wording used in many other Pokémon name origin sections which split the combination into its parts. Cu, cuprum, and cute make up the first part of the combination, and infant and elephant make up the second part. I feel like it would be more informative and more consistent to word it the way I had it i.e. Cufant may be a combination of Cu (chemical symbol for copper), cuprum (the Latin name for copper from which the symbol is derived), or cute, and elephant or infant. Landfish7 03:32, 14 July 2022 (UTC)

Ah, in that case i guess it's the better format? Idk, i changed it back because i felt like the new edit was a bit too wordy. Anzasquiddles (talk) 06:15, 14 July 2022 (UTC)


Hey! Just curious, where is Fuecoco depicted with more than two tufts on its head? Landfish7 05:16, 5 August 2022 (UTC)

Wait maybe I misunderstood what you meant. Landfish7 05:19, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
i mean it can have more than two tufts on its head, like when it gets excited, as described in the website. Anzasquiddles (talk) 05:26, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
Interesting. Thanks! Landfish7 05:27, 5 August 2022 (UTC)

Thank you

Just wanted to say thank you for fixing that edit I made to Snorlax and that I agree with your changes. Sometimes I wish Bulbapedia had a quick "thank you" button like Wikipedia does. - unsigned comment from Landfish7 (talkcontribs)

It can be easily implemented with mw:Extension:Thanks --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 11:04, 6 September 2022 (UTC)

Pokémon biology

Why do you delete edits that clarify pokemon biology? Grafaiai resembles more of an Aye-Aye than a Loris so if you want to delete stuff delete the section from origins and add it to biology so it's correctly identified as an Aye-Aye. SarahSmiley24 (talk) 18:12, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

The Aye-Aye is an endangered species, so I don't feel it's right to take away any attention that could be brought to the animal especially when the pokemon was named after it. SarahSmiley24 (talk) 18:17, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

Most Pokémon aren't based on just one thing. Eg: aye-ayes aren't poisonous, but the slow loris is. Grafaiai's eyes are very large compared to its head, which is like the loris but unlike the aye-aye (the aye-aye has large eyes but they aren't THAT large, esp compared to the loris eyes). Also, like i said, Grafaiai being based on the aye-aye is already described in the Origin section. The Biology section is where we describe the mon as it looks and behaves in the Pokémon world; we generally don't compare and contrast back and forth between real life species and the Pokémon in the Bio section.
Also yes, the aye-aye is endangered; but so many other Pokémon are based on endangered species too, eg. Rhyhorn all the way back in Gen 1. Anzasquiddles (talk) 18:22, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

By your own admission the aye-aye should still be in biology because Grafaiai uses his long saliva finger to paint. All I'm asking is to add Aye-Aye along with the loris in biology as it is undeniably a combination of both instead of just a loris. SarahSmiley24 (talk) 18:34, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

You don't have to use my way of wording it, but perhaps it could say "resembling a lemur like the Aye-Aye and Loris." SarahSmiley24 (talk) 18:36, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

If you're the one who made the edit on Grafaiai right now I just wanted to say thank you for compromising and hearing me out. Sorry if I came off a little aggressive that wasn't my intention, but thanks again for having this discussion SarahSmiley24 (talk) 19:05, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

While Aye-Ayes are lemurs, I appreciate the specific distinction SarahSmiley24 (talk) 19:11, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

baxcalibur and its evos

I think baxcalibur is first and foremost resembles a kaiju, whether it also resembles concavenator or any other dinosaur not can be an issue of discussion, however concavenator only had a little bump on it's back if we go on like this every reptilian kaiju can be said to be based on a theropod dinosaur arctibax does look like a dinosaur but the crest on the back is still more similar to spinosaurus than concavenator. and tell me how frigibax mostly resembles a concavenator or any dinosaur at all. sometimes the inspiration changes through evolution (jigglypuff and wigglytuff, magikarp and gyarados, or need i mention dragonair dragonite, larvitar pupitar and so many more) sometimes trying too hard to see something in the design has the opposite effect, also not everything has to have a Spanish relation, so there is no need to stick to concavenator, just because it happened to be discovered in Spain. arctibax ok, but the other two? I'm not sure Lphits (talk) 09:42, 13 December 2022 (UTC)

  • Has a fin on its back
  • The fin is said to regulate temperature
  • Has quills or feathers on its wrists
  • Was found in Spain
All of these traits are shared with Frigibax and its evos (all of them have ice fins that can absorb heat, quills/feathers on their wrists, live in Paldea). That they share this many traits with each other means that the connection isn't a mere coincidence. Also lest we forget, a lot of kaiju are also based on dinosaurs in the first place.
"But Frigibax doesn't look like a dinosaur at all" it's called stylization. Gible doesn't look like a shark either, for example.
I also would like to remind you to not go overboard with putting pop-culture references in the origin sections. Pokémon is its own thing, first and foremost; referencing random pop culture things esp when they have nothing to do with the designs in question (eg. saying Pawmot is based on Iron Man) doesn't help anyone.
Anzasquiddles (talk) 09:52, 13 December 2022 (UTC)

i get why it is compared to concavenator, but other dinosaurs (like spinosaurus) also have fins/sails to regulate body temperature and, the fins are more similar to the pokemon

anyway, concavenator it is then. but at least for baxcalibur, i would still put kaiju first (because I don't think someone who sees it first would say: that's a concavenator!) and dinosaur next, it is, after all, a kaiju with some dinosaur (concavenator then) traits. so, it could go like this: it is based on a kaiju blabla and, like it's pre - evolutions, it is also likely to be based on concavenator

haha, i actually don't like the marvel series, but the blue circles on the palm and shooting stuff out of it just makes it suspiciously similar (steel type or not) charizard is based on a dragon but is not a dragon type too also I think is said it was a reference to iron man, not based on iron man given the recent fame of the franchise, it is very much possible

we don't know what the artist had in mind when creating the design, most of the origin articles are guesses and assumptions. they might have put stuff on pokemon for design purposes only, or just thought, let's make it shoot stuff from it's hands like Iron Man.... anyway, with most Pokemon designs, we will probably never know.

absolutely, pokemon is it's own thing, but there are numerous references to other franchises (like Blastoise and venusaur fusing in the series is a reference to DB) Dynamic might be another reference to the Ultraman series as Ultraman is multiplying in size in the exact same fashion as Pokemon do while Dynamaxing. These franchises have the same audience so references are not impossible. Lphits (talk) 10:17, 13 December 2022 (UTC)

yeah sure the Baxcalibur thing could work Anzasquiddles (talk) 10:21, 13 December 2022 (UTC)

sorry for the auto correct xD Lphits (talk) 10:25, 13 December 2022 (UTC)

nymble and lokix

its a minor thing, but lokix perhaps cannot fly because it's a kamen rider? or simply just to emphasize the jumping/kicking power of its legs they did not give it wings, not necessarily because it is based on a certain species. given its name, shape and that it's an in evolved form: nymble is definitely (or at least most likely) a locust/grasshopper nymph, the species seems irrelevant anyway, my aim was to point out the connection between the name and design more Lphits (talk) 10:41, 13 December 2022 (UTC)

To be fair i wasn't the one who originally added the meadow hopper inspiration to those pages; i just re-added it back in because i thought it's still relevant. But yeah that's why i included both "nymph" and "meadow grasshopper" on the origin for Nymble; it could be both. Anzasquiddles (talk) 10:47, 13 December 2022 (UTC)

Revert conflicts

Heya anza, I've noticed recently you've been a bit quick to jump to the undo button when confronted with an edit dispute. In particular, reverting an edit back after someone has reverted you. Remember, this can approach edit warring territory. I'd really consider just talking things out with another user before doing a revert, and try to reach some sort of agreement or compromise, rather than reverting back and forth. I know this can slow down the pace of editing, but it usually results in the agreed upon changes being more pleasant for everyone and makes the editing experience a lot more enjoyable. I know this has been addressed with you before on the Discord server, so I'd really give it some thought. Thanks! Landfish7 04:50, 19 December 2022 (UTC)

Yeah i apologize, i'll try to be less trigger-happy next time. Anzasquiddles (talk) 08:30, 19 December 2022 (UTC)

Only known Pokémon

Not all Pokémon with signature moves are the only ones capable of learning that move, as some signature moves can be learned by other Pokémon through other means. All Pokémon who are the only ones capable of learning that move have that info stated in their biology section. That's why I included it, because it's interesting info and it's consistent with all other instances of this. Landfish7 14:31, 20 December 2022 (UTC)

Fair enough, my bad. *shrug* Anzasquiddles (talk) 14:36, 20 December 2022 (UTC)

Thank you!

With it just hitting the 4 month mark since the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, I wanted to take an opportunity to offer a more personal acknowledgment of some of the hard work you've contributed during this incredibly busy period for Bulbapedia. Your work on new Pokémon TCG navigations, locations, and other misc. changes were a huge help in our coverage this go around. Bulbapedia's continued success as a wiki relies on dedicated and passionate editors such as yourself. So again, thank you and keep up the excellent work! --Pokemaster97 22:13, 20 March 2023 (UTC)

Bill and Ninothing

It can be a reference to Pokémon let's Go. It might as well be notable since there's another person who's wearing the opposite gender the evo line (Nidorina). They wear a similar thing to a costume just like Bill does when he turn himself into a Nidorino. So why not put that as a trivia? (I don't think it was an issue with the staff so...) QuickJolteon (talk) 21:09, 24 March 2023 (UTC)

Bill and Nidothing are completely different people, though. You could argue that they both work with computers but like, one manages servers while the other is a streamer, so idk. Plus Bill literally turns into a Nidorino, while Nidothing only wears a costume. Unless there's further evidence connecting these two i think they are not connected at all. Anzasquiddles (talk) 21:12, 24 March 2023 (UTC)

I'm not saying they're the same people, it's just something I notice while making the page. I just thought it might've been a interesting trivia to put as a little connection between the two, even if they've never met each other. QuickJolteon (talk) 21:30, 24 March 2023 (UTC)

Diglett and Wiglett

You accidentally categorized the talk pages of Diglett and Wiglett, and I don't know how to delete it. Can you do it yourself? CrazyPikmin (My Edits) 10:49, 12 April 2023 (UTC)


Hey! I just noticed that the images all link to Spirgatito. Do you know what might be the issue? Oneofthosedf (talk) (contribs) 23:35, 24 May 2023 (UTC)

Fixed it, the template wasn't relaying the Pokemon name parameter to the {{MSP9}}, therefore it was defaulting to Sprigatito as thats what MSP9 defaults to when it doesn't have the parameter inputted. It fixed.-- 4iamking (talk) 00:10, 25 May 2023 (UTC)

Finizen and Palafin

Hi, are you sure the removal of the edits I made was correct? You noted Farfetch'd and Sirfetch'd, but the example doesn't count because they're still quite distinct - the leek and body color are drastically different. A lot of other Pokémon do the same thing where their evolution stages look similar to each other with major differences, even something like Voltorb and Electrode where their entire body swaps colors and gains a mouth. Meanwhile Finizen and Zero Form Palafin actually look exactly the same, and the only difference between them is the heart marking on their chest - I had done a quick check and found no other Pokémon that did something like this, which is why I added it to trivia. Long story short, the point of it was the identical appearance and not just similarity; without the heart marking, it would become impossible to tell the two apart. Even if they're part of the same evolutionary family, it still stands that they're so far the only Pokémon that use an identical design between each other; in fact there are Pokémon that have other unique traits listed in their trivias (e.g. unique stat totals and type combinations) even if their evolutionary families have them as well, and this is noted accordingly; for example the trivia of Swinub and its evolutionary family states that they're the only ones with their type combination, even though by technicality it would count as other Pokémon having this type combo, but they belong to the same line rather than being entirely unrelated so they're still unique. I don't see what makes Finizen and Palafin any different in this regard. Thanks for hearing me out! Eggy (talk) 05:42, 29 June 2023 (UTC)

Technically, there are examples of other Pokémon that can have completely identical forms. Namely, Gigantamax Appletun and Gigantamax Flapple. Landfish7 05:46, 29 June 2023 (UTC)
Oh, I completely forgot about G-Max. Does that still count however? Asking because G-Max is a battle-only form seen only in Sword and Shield, whereas Finizen automatically evolves into Zero Form Palafin i.e. it is a form it assumes naturally rathen than being something that's only seen in battle in a specific generation. Or is that a stretch and it's in the same league as the two G-Max Pokémon, therefore not unique? Eggy (talk) 05:54, 29 June 2023 (UTC)
"Finizen and Palafin are the only Pokémon with default forms that are identical aside from a single feature" seems a tad specific and still a bit subjective. Landfish7 05:59, 29 June 2023 (UTC)
The thing about Finizen and Palafin is that even though they look near-identical, they still have one distinguishing difference (the heart marking). Hence why i mentioned Farfetch'd/Sirfetch'd as a comparison; "These mons look the exact same except for one or two traits" doesn't seem notable, imo. Especially so when the two mons are part of the same evolutionary line; "two mons belonging in the same evo line look similar to each other" seems too obvious to worth a mention to me. This is also unlike Gmax Flapple and Appletun, who share the exact same model and appearance in-game (zero difference whatsoever).
I do see your points, though; i kinda feel like your trivia can stay on the page, but idk. Maybe you should bring it up in the Finizen or Palafin discussion page, i wonder if others would agree or disagree with your idea. Anzasquiddles (talk) 06:27, 29 June 2023 (UTC)
If we do include it, I think it could be combined with another trivium to say "Finizen and Zero Form Palafin have identical cries, and are the only Pokémon with default forms that are identical in appearance aside from a single identifying feature, with the only difference being that Palafin has a heart-shaped marking on its chest." Landfish7 06:32, 29 June 2023 (UTC)
Makes sense. I might see about starting a discussion, but otherwise your points are entirely valid and I missed G-Max Appletun and Flapple being a thing as I hadn't accounted for forms like that, only base Pokémon and regional variants. I even searched it (because there were too many Pokémon to feasibly check manually) and it turned up no results before I added the trivia. Eggy (talk) 06:36, 29 June 2023 (UTC)

Charizard mainspace

Hey there. I saw you were the one who mainspaced Friede's Charizard and I was wondering why it has been mainspaced when Leon's Charizard hasn't? Both of them don't belong to main characters and I feel Leon's has done more at this point, so I was wondering what the difference is. Thanks.--Rahl (talk) 00:33, 15 August 2023 (UTC)

I had discussed it with the other editors on the Discord and the consensus is that the Friede's Charizard page feels substantial enough to be mainspaced. Thank you for bringing up Leon's Charizard, though. I'll ask them too on mainspacing its page. Anzasquiddles 2222(:D)SSSS (talk) 01:07, 15 August 2023 (UTC)
Oh i forgot to mention something, but like, is Friede not a main character? Dude is there for pretty much the entire story of Horizons so far — he may not be a protag but i think he's still a main character (or at least a major secondary character). Anzasquiddles 2222(:D)SSSS (talk) 01:10, 15 August 2023 (UTC)
I think he's of a similar level to Kukui, where he's not a main character but close to it. Thank you for bringing it up. --Rahl (talk) 20:15, 15 August 2023 (UTC)

Katatsuki Chaire

Hi, I saw you remove the katatsuki part from Poltcheageist's origin section, but I was kind of confused about why. I don't really understand how narrowing down the inspiration would be considered overexplaining. Stating that it seems to be a katatsuki chaire instead of just any chaire just seems more precise to me. Petrichor (talk) 04:10, 23 August 2023 (UTC)

There are other shapes of chaire that Poltchageist resembles, eg. the dodaka or the imonoko. To me at least, i don't think its design points to a specific shape of chaire, and moreso just the general idea of "chaire containing matcha powder". I could be wrong though. Anzasquiddles 2222(:D)SSSS (talk page) 08:53, 23 August 2023 (UTC)
It wasn't clear to me what you meant by overexplaining, but I see now that you meant that you don't think there is strong enough evidence to point to katatsuki specifically. I still think it's the most likely cause given how well-known that particular variant is but I don't have any problem leaving it at just chaire in general. Thanks. Petrichor (talk) 19:48, 23 August 2023 (UTC)

Koraidon/Miraidon Surf thing

I added it because it's a first (second if you count the Rotom bike, but that can't be used in battle), as usually when you ride a Pokemon in the water, it can learn Surf. Even in Sun/Moon you ride on a Pokemon that can learn Surf in the water. (BTW, this doesn't help my case, but Surf was used in BDSP). ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 04:54, 29 October 2023 (UTC)

Also, this is considered trivia for Gholdengo:
Despite its Japanese name, Pokédex image, and ability to create a surfboard while traversing water, Gholdengo is incapable of learning the move Surf.
So why not the __aidon thing? ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 13:25, 29 October 2023 (UTC)
I understand your arguments. Honestly im kind of on the fence about whether it should stay or not: personally, idk if it's trivia worthy given that Surf/Fly has not been used to travel since Gen 8 (except for BDSP like you said), and it's not like Koraidon/Miraidon are specifically Built for surfing, per se; but at the same time, they are the replacements for Surf/Fly/etc in SV, even the method by which you unlock their travel abilities is literally called "HM".
You can re-add those trivia entries back in. I guess we just have to see what others think of them. Anzasquiddles 2222(:D)SSSS (talk page) 14:42, 29 October 2023 (UTC)
Thank you. Let's see what others think indeed. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 19:00, 29 October 2023 (UTC)
