Manga titles

Please try to remember to link to the manga as Pokémon Adventures rather than Pokémon Special since we refer to all manga series by their VIZ Media and/or Chuang Yi names here (when available). Thank you! ^^ --ZestyCactus 01:30, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Ranger manga

Do you know if Pokémon Ranger - The Comic was ever published as a bound volume? Or were they all published online only? Thanks :) --ZestyCactus 14:07, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Okay cool, thanks for all the help :) --ZestyCactus 20:24, 7 July 2010 (UTC)


Can you help me with a few things? One, update this article for me... second, is it ok if you also make an article for Golduck, and possibly Porygon2? Obviously I'll confirm with CP, but it's a start. ht14 02:59, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

One more thing... keep conversations on one page... thanks. ht14 03:18, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Just wondering...

When you welcomed HELPME, did you copy and paste the template's code? ~~ Scyther Be Awesome! Bother me here. 05:27, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, you did... when you welcome a new user, Ataro, all you need to do is write {{subst:welcome}} and (if you feel so inclined) a personal message such as "Welcome!" in the summary box. Copy-pasting can sometimes cause errors... not to mention it's more tedious. —darklordtrom 06:14, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
well you can't go through life without making errors right?

sorry about that Ataro 06:26, 8 August 2010 (UTC)


  Congratulations! For your outstanding service to Bulbapedia's manga section you have been awarded the Golden Poliwhirl Award for July, 2010 by the Bulbapedia editorial board!

Please place this template onto your userpage by putting {{User Award|GoldPoli|July, 2010}} among your userboxes.


For your work on Project Manga, this award is to be shared with Kaboomustdie. Thanks for your effort and well done. —darklordtrom 00:44, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 01:06, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Congrats. You deserved it :). --CoolPikachu! 01:28, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Lol, yeah, I didn't see it coming, either, but I guess hard work always pays off. I was busy adding stuff to the Zuzu article though I had plans to message you here before (perhaps gloat? Hur hur), but anyway, congrats. (By the way, the Zuzu thing totally went bust because I got sick of the "Sry ur editz coodlnt be sayvved lawg out & Trai agen" thing, and did just that, and logged back in... only to forget to not overwrite the Pokemon templates at the top. >_>

Anyways, congratulations! Non-stop Hatred of Kabam 02:39, 13 August 2010 (UTC)



I never actually saw this coming...thank you...

Yo, I have a problem with editing my page. I registered my e-mail address, and I still fail to edit it. Help, please. A President Named C-Dawg.

yeah I'm not a mod..

but from what I've heard you have to do mainspace edits first... Ataro 07:21, 14 August 2010 (UTC)


I realise that I'm bringing up something from a few days ago, and I realise that some people are idiots, but in cases like this one just stay calm. If you can't do that, let someone else handle the situation. Cheers, —darklordtrom 22:22, 16 August 2010 (UTC)


I know that both articles for Yanappu were created during the same time, but that doesn't give you the right to place a delete tag on someone else's userpage, even if they're the same. The right thing to do would be to inform them on their talk page. Also, the content to be delete shouldn't be replaced. Please remember that next time. Jellotalk 23:56, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Palkia's page

First of all, I didn't notice the information was on Palkia's species page, so sorry about bringing it up again. Second, I checked the Bulbapedia policy and didn't find that rule you mentioned listed. So where might it be located just out of curiosity and for future reference? Jo The Marten 00:02, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

I've seen the admins mentioning stuff like this several times.....Ataro 00:09, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Mmm, okay. I'm just not very active so I don't know everything that goes on around here all the time. Jo The Marten 00:44, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

eh it's alright we all make mistakes look at me I make em all the time Ataro 00:55, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Heh, well thanks for understanding. Jo The Marten 00:57, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Talk pages

Hi Ataro. I realise talk pages are pretty much a free-for-all when it comes to spelling and grammar and stuff like that, but it would be really appreciated if you could keep your comments on the same line unless you have a good reason for breaking them up into paragraphs. It makes it a lot easier to read this way - and might even help you practise writing for the mainspace. Cheers, —darklordtrom 11:12, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm just not into the whole paragraph thing...I find it easier to read by breaking into little parts so I don't mess up and read the same line twice...and it happens a lot Ataro 11:29, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Also, please try not to post comments in an archive page... >_> Ztobor 00:55, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

I was wondering

Do you have any idea why PS317 and PS325-PS328 are left unmade? I've always found it odd that they aren't made yet. MaverickNate 20:03, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

someone probably just forgot...I'll be making them soon after I finish making cover pages for the chapters that don't have any Ataro 20:07, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Got your message

Hey, I got your message, I know Sonic isn't a Pokémon, I've already learned my lesson. I'll keep it to myself. - unsigned comment from Pokedex493 (talkcontribs)

Your usertags...

...are being smushed due to two on the same row in the last row. Just thought I'd point it out. Ztobor 00:32, 2 September 2010 (UTC) I noticed, I just have no idea how to fix it..I'll try to do it sometime..Ataro 01:00, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

It's because the two at the bottom are in individual cells on the same row, so it forces them side by side. They need to be in the same cell, which puts them one on top of the other. Werdnae (talk) 01:30, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
So... should I fix it, or not? I don't want to go edit somebody's user page without permission. Ztobor 02:58, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

* Dr. Akihabara developed Porygon in the anime version.

Why did you erase it? It added it because there was no reference to Dr. Akihabara in the page of Porygon. Sawamular101 23:50, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

No resigning?

What does that mean? --[email protected]$_ /usr/bin/apache2 -k restart 16:03, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

It means if you forget to sign, you can't correct yourself. CuboneKing 01:27, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Oh, okay. Is it due to extra server strain? In that case correcting the "resign" gives even more strain :) If not, please give some link to rules or something - searching for "resign" turns up only one confused user who "didn't know he couldn't resign". It's not like I am bitter or anything, just want to know. --[email protected]$_ /usr/bin/apache2 -k restart 22:22, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
It's here. Hope this helps :) CuboneKing 02:33, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
Oh, thanks, it does. This means I can {{unsigned}} myself :) --[email protected]$_ /usr/bin/apache2 -k restart 05:15, 15 September 2010 (UTC)


You recently undid something on electric tale of pikachu........but that was me rewording what i posted......did you think someone else did it or did I do something wrong? - unsigned comment from Angel10698 (talkcontribs) 04:12, 14 September 2010 UTC

You deleted an {{unsigned}} tag and changed your comment. If you wanted to add to it, you should have added it as an additional comment. Also, please sign your talk page comments with four tildes (~~~~). PhantomJunkie 04:28, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

k i will add an aditional comment next time. sorry i keep forgetting to sign......i will try to remember nxt time.Angel10698 05:24, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Edit Summary

I'm sorry, but your edit summary fixing my typo on Yorterri was kind of rude. I was typing quickly and missed a letter, but you didn't have to laugh and call it a fail. PhantomJunkie 20:13, 16 September 2010 (UTC)


try it now. MaverickNate 18:11, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

thank you very much Ataro 18:20, 29 September 2010 (UTC)


Well, I haven't read the Three Musketeers, though this does make me want to, but I think Keldeo is part of the other 4, they all have the same special ability and signature move (though Keldeo one level later), so I wouldn't call them a trio. --*Ɣℯ№ӎօṫհ* 22:37, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes but in the story he isn't really counted as one (hence the three musketeers) Ataro 22:39, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
No one's arguing against the basis and inspiration being the Three Musketeers, but I'm saying for the sake of Pokémon it's part of the set. I think it's awkward just leaving it out like that. In the other cases of related Pokémon in Legendary trio it's the leader who's excluded (which if you take the reference strongly would be wrong if he's an original member of the bunch), but Keldeo left out just leaves him as a legendary, non-leader, seemingly oxymoronically unimportant (but of course he is because he's a legendary) all alone, it's just wrong, like he's not cool enough because he's based on d'Artagnan. They should either all be there (which is wrong because there 4, not 3) or none of them should - "All for one, and one for all". --*Ɣℯ№ӎօṫհ* 23:08, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Pikachu (Pokémon) FAC vote

Sorry if I am wrong about this but someone, either you or Venemoth, posted under the support section on this page and did not change the number of support votes in the section title. Looking at the history of the page makes me think this was you. It's not a big deal it's just that if you do not change the number of support votes then your vote does not count. If you just wanted to post a comment on the page but did not want to cast a vote there is a section specifically for comments at the bottom of the page. Please change the number of support votes if you did want to vote. Thank you--Alex726contributions 15:21, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

I'm just wondering...

Where did these images come from? Are there more? I kind of need to know for my page. --SnorlaxMonster 11:16, 11 October 2010 (UTC) from this months corocoro (that no one cares about) Ataro 19:28, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
So did this come out 1st October? Or is there some date before that? --SnorlaxMonster 12:51, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Please ;( I begging you

Please, could you unlock picture uploading at least for a short period of time to edit pictures from BW005, cuz i have some very cool pictures of pokemon and attacks, so please... Just for uploading BW005, then if you want you lock uploading again... User:Salazar12

Well, Ataro is a Jr admin like me. Jello is our Sr Admin and Nate is our chief. Sorry but archives can't be unlocked now, we still have a lot of work to do. So, it's not possible. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 04:13, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

I will stop when you unlock the upload then i will ad a Leer picture and you will be sorry... - unsigned comment from Milotic.ho (talkcontribs)


I didn't see any kind of statement that it would be that move. Anyway, in case you're sure tell that to this guy too. --FinnishPokéFan92 08:51, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Before you go apeshit at me...

I just want to say that it made more sense that the names came from Trident, Tripod, and Tricorn, Given that the badge they give out is the TRI badge and that they're brothers.--ForceFire 04:11, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

I wasn't going to...Ataro 04:13, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

If you're going to use an edit summary like this, at least tell the user why they've been reverted. —darklordtrom 07:45, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

I thought it was obvious.....Ataro 07:53, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
Not always to new users. —darklordtrom 09:39, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Manga question

You seem to know a lot about the manga, so I guess I'll start taking my questions to you. In PS085, Agatha says that she was the one that commanded the Shellder and Machop to attack the Gyms. Does this make them her Pokemon? Littlmiget123 18:25, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Nope, Remember how she controlled Bruno? If I had to guess then that's how she controlled the Pokemon that's not her type Ataro 18:31, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
Alright, but didn't she control Bruno using the bands? I don't think that any of the Pokemon had bands on them, did they? Littlmiget123 20:03, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Iris's Trivial Problem

Okay, so you wanted to talk about this here? And believe me, I really want to do that because we seem to have a problem. First off let's start with this, Iris is considered Black, what proof do you have that she isn't? You seem to put it bluntly like you know so, That or you're racist and hate that? You want her to be your Race maybe? I'm not Black myself (I'm Caucasian) but it's obvious Iris looks Black more than any other Hispanic or dark skinned Asian or Indian.

Second, but the point is I didn't say she was Black I said she was wearing a Ladies Dashiki which she is indeed is. There is nothing to speculate or discuss about that. There's no problem with adding that into her Trivia. Maybe if you're weren't (a possible) racist you would know more about African clothes and styles and know Iris is wearing a Dashiki.

I already knew people "like you" would come and try and remove it. But it is more a fact than opinion. So yea whats your problem?

Crystal Power 17:48, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

First of all I'M BLACK YOU MORON so don't call me a racist, second, stuff like this are usually dicussed in the Talk page of the article before adding, third, it's speculative, her outfit resembles it slightly I'll give you that but it doesn't mean it's the same thing Ataro 17:57, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Claiming you're Black? Heh! Means nothing... You may be self-prejudice who knows how screwed up you might be along with all the others. You know what though, enough with the insults. I'll apologize for that. But those clothes is highly a reflection of a Women Dashiki. Your argument sound like "Those can't be jeans, doh they're not blue".... =_=. It is not speculation that some African style's look like that. Her shirt has the V shaped color, all Dashiki's have. Some style's are accompanied with a Sash wrap around the waist and tight legging's for females. You probably think all African's wear no clothes or just a small cloth around the waist and are all dark skin? I mean oh the irony I a non-black person having a debate with a (allegedly) Black person, about a character in which he/she does not want the character to be Black. Even though more than her looks points towards that she is. This is so ridiculous. And plus there's going to be more people out there thinking they know, which they don't. Crystal Power 18:28, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
You know what Crystal Power? You're the racist! Saying "people like you" is extremealy offenscive this is not the 1930s so I'm sorry If you enjoyed that time period but stop yelling at Ataro before you get banned. I will tell an administratior because you're being hurtful, and you made excessive edits to Iris that's two broken rules! please stop disturbing the peace and assuming things. Brock was brown but that dosent mean he's african american. Yep that's right the correct term is AFRICAN AMERICAN not Black that's rude the way you said it. Think about the people you are hurting, and the comments you post before doing it. Or I will tell the freaking admin. Pokemaster97 19:12, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
Woah, woah guys. Break it up. Let's remeber the COC here. Crystal Power, what Ataro said is correct, something like this should have been brought up on the article's talk page so everyone else can weigh in on the issue and THEN we decide things from there. I agree, something like is quite speculative, it needs to discussed first and substantial proof needs to be given in order to consider this. Until the issue gets resolved, it can't be added back. You can all do that on: Talk:Iris (anime). Thanks. Keep it chill guys. Jellotalk 19:23, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Ataro if I hurt you're feeling then I'm truly sorry, but as I wrote to Pokemonmaster97 Black is the correct term NOT African American since not all Black people are American. Yes, perhaps I should have brought this up in Talk:Iris (anime). Next time I'll do that. I believed I gave a pretty good explanation that what she is wearing is a Dashiki. Sorry that you feel the need to make a deal about it. Crystal Power 19:45, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
Before I leave this twisted site I had to let you know I regret apologizing to you! You deserved ever bit of insult. As I told KenjiGirl being Adim's on a website is nothing in real life. It's truly sad how you all freaked out because I edited one piece of Trivia! One line! Told her and I'll tell you block me if you want why should I care? Have a good day and Good Bye!~
Crystal Power 00:44, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Whatever >_> Ataro 00:54, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Um, Crystal Power, I'm pretty sure you're the one who freaked out, not the other way around...--Cold (talk) 00:59, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
As Ataro would say "Whatever". >_>
