Please remember to always sign your comments. You can sign your comments with 4 tildes (~) or clicking the signature stamp ( ) on the top of the edit box. It should also be noted that once your comment has been marked as unsigned, you cannot replace it with your signature as it will give off the wrong time stamp. Thank you for taking your time to read this message, have a good day. - unsigned comment from Force Fire (talkcontribs)

Again, please sign your comments with four tildes or by clicking the signature button above the edit box. Thank you. - unsigned comment from Force Fire (talkcontribs)


Please provide a link or an image to your source, don't just say it. Show, don't tell.--ForceFire 14:42, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Not easy as the info came by PM from GummiYummy who is in email contact with her --BigDocFan (talk) 15:04, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Then ask him for photo evidence. Don't just believe everything he says.--ForceFire 15:41, 26 August 2015 (UTC)


Please don't re-sign and unsigned signature, it will give off the wrong timestamp. Manually typing in the correst timestamp won't do either. So if you're comment has been marked as unsigned, just leave it.--ForceFire 16:25, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

My apologies, I am trying to help out here so sorry for any errors --BigDocFan (talk) 16:31, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

M18 Cast

Did you get permission from Force Fire to post it? Technickal (talk) 17:21, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Not too sure there Technickal sir, sent him an email the other but unsure, do you have a user account on the forum, perhaps I can PM you it with the cast list--BigDocFan (talk) 19:59, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

I did get an email, you said the screencap was too big. So I sent you another emailing saying to split the screencap in two if it's too big. Haven't gotten your response yet.--ForceFire 03:46, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Don't seem to have received any email from you but then again, i'm not sure how, I should explain I have aspergers syndrome so might not understand things as easily as you but sent you an email with 3 screenshots of the email I got from Theresa, the first having her email address visible--BigDocFan (talk) 11:28, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

You didn't get my email? strange. Anyways, the screenshots are better, you may add the information.--ForceFire 12:50, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

VA sources

Once more, if you are adding English voice actors, you must attest a source, always. Please try not to forget. Thank you. Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:14, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

English actor suggestion

If you find the English actor of Sliggoo and Heliolisk, let me know which website to go.--CoolPokéGuy (Talk) 17:32, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hello. I have noticed that you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently, and have made a total of 4+ userspace edits today. Please do not edit the userspace any more, as the userspace policy limits the amount you can edit your userpage: No more than three edits per day (by UTC), and you must contribute to the mainspace more than you edit your user page(s). This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our servers. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal page(s). The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your user page(s). Thank you. --Berrenta (talk) 20:14, 20 August 2016 (UTC)


Thanks for finding the English actor for Sliggoo and Goodra. I knew it was Tom Wayland, but nobody didn't believe. And I was having trouble finding a source and contacting him.--CoolPokéGuy (Talk) 12:56, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

You're welcome, I had a feeling it was Tom Wayland as well but thought I would wait until Goodra's return before enquiring with Lisa Ortiz--BigDocFan (talk) 13:06, 11 September 2016 (UTC)


Hello! I noticed you have a list of voice actors in your user page, and while this is not at all a problem, I thought I'd inform you that you can create subpages of your user page for things like this--e.g., User:BigDocFan/List of VAs would be a good place to put a list of voice actors, if you'd prefer not to clutter up your userpage. User subpages, if intended to be put in the mainspace, are also candidates for exemption from the userspace edit limit (though they are only candidates, and you have to get permission from an editorial board member, I believe, for exemption). Just thought I'd let you know in case you didn't! --Felthry (F.K.A. Xolroc) (talk) 18:34, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

I didn't know how to create subpages, thank you so much, I would hate to get in trouble with admin--BigDocFan (talk) 18:35, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Hey, that's fine. You're not in any trouble now--just remember those subpages count towards your three-edit limit too unless you talk to an editorial board member and get an exemption! --Felthry (F.K.A. Xolroc) (talk) 18:54, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Link templates

I've seen you using link templates before, so I think you already know what they are. I just wanted to remind you to make use of them when appropriate ({{p|Dragonite}} instead of [[Dragonite]]), and to let you know about templates that you might not be aware of: {{Ash}} for linking directly to Ash Ketchum, {{MTR}} for linking directly to Meowth (Team Rocket) (no TR template needed!), and {{an}} for linking to character pages with the (anime) suffix. Thanks!--Cold (talk) 15:45, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Guess there are some areas that I am still learning.--BigDocFan (talk) 17:02, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
Attention. This a another reminder to use link templates when appropriate. Ataro (talk) 21:53, 30 June 2017 (UTC)


For example, you don't use commas when they would be needed, you tend to make quite a lot of grammatical errors, and overall, the synopsis you write tend to be in pretty rough English. You should ALWAYS use the preview button to make sure you don't do any mistakes you could avoid. For example, earlier today you wrote that Gladion kept his Umbreon inside an Ultra Ball, even thought its Lycanroc seen coming out of the ball. Also, your edit at Continental Crush felt rushed and incomplete. Don't start making edits you know you can't do properly or fully. PS. I may be rambling a bit here, the quality of your edits has just gotten on my nerves multiple times. But I guess you're still just learning. Let's hope you'll get better as time goes on. Hopefully... --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:15, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

I do apologize about my not so good edits, when it comes to new episodes, I start from looking at pics posted on Serebii which don't always tell a clear story, doesn't help that I have aspergers when it comes to grammar--BigDocFan (talk) 13:17, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
I'm an Asperger too, but I've learned to do my edits more carefully and properly. I once did so many edits to same pages in a short time that I was on a forced preview for several years. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:18, 18 May 2017 (UTC)


Please don't create pages of characters that have not debuted yet, even if you aren't around to create them. That is not a good enough reason. Playerking95 (talk) 08:03, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Notability requirements

Please familiarize yourself with the notability requirements. A Pokémon needs to do more than just appear twice to be noted, it must have some sort of impact on the plot. The Garden Pokémon had no impact on the plot, they just appeared. Thank you.--ForceFire 00:07, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Who voiced Chesnaught in M19?

Hi BigDoc, I was making a list of characters/actors for M19 and I noticed that you put both Suzy Myers and Billy Bob Thompson as Chesnaught. Did they both voice Chesnaught, or was this a mistake?

Probably a mistake but strangely the cast list for Suzy Myers and Billy Bob Thompson both have Chesnaught, I'm guessing Suzy Myers as she voices Chespin.--BigDocFan (talk) 20:42, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Episode airing times

I noticed that you unmasked the major events that happened in SM035 before the episode finished airing. As a general rules, things that happen during the initial airings don't get changed until after the whole episode has finished. Playerking95 (talk) 16:49, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

I apologize, having watched an episode air live on youtube I didn't realize so jumped the gun.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:51, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

Stolen content

You have previously been warned on the Bulbagarden Archives about stealing images from other fan sites, but do note that Bulbapedia does not tolerate the stealing of content from other fan sites in any form, including but not limited to images and plot summaries. Copying information from other fan sites is called plagiarism. Taking another fan site's plot summary is considered plagiarism. Taking another fan site's plot summary and switching up a few words here and there is still considered plagiarism. If you want to write up a plot summary, it must be done from scratch and in your own words. Just like we don't want other fan sites to steal our content, we don't want our users to be stealing other fan sites' content. Please be aware and respectful of our policies so that a similar case does not arise. Thank you. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 16:12, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Noted and taken as a final warning, last thing I want is to be blocked from a brilliant wiki like Bulbapedia.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:14, 8 August 2017 (UTC)


Could you please refrain from making edits that relate to an episode before it finishes. Playerking95 (talk) 10:34, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

Need to try and contain my excitement, able to watch episodes as they air live on youtube and am keen to contribute more, I'll be more careful in future.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:28, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
That's alright, I did something similarly with SM033, where I forgot about the rule. I was so happy that Lana's Popplio finally got a new move. I guess quite a few of us need to contain our excitement. Also, when you add moves in the future, could you also add the description, otherwise it seems kind of lacklustre, you know what I mean? Playerking95 (talk) 16:35, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
Think I leave the new moves to the experts, providing descriptions without directly copying and pasting from others isn't easy.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:39, 10 August 2017 (UTC)


Can you read what I sent you on Serebii Forums? http://www.serebiiforums.com/private.php It's a private message. Raichu65 (talk) 14:18, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Type: Null

Maybe you didn't notice but I've had a page for Gladion's Type: Null in the works for months now.--Rahl (talk) 13:17, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

For some reason when I do a check, it doesn't show--BigDocFan (talk) 17:32, 12 August 2017 (UTC)
I've had that problem as well. I'm not sure why results aren't showing up.--Rahl (talk) 18:15, 12 August 2017 (UTC)
It's an unintentional consequence of Bulbagarden's transfer to https. According to Talk:Main Page#What links here, the staff are aware and working on getting it fixed. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 18:45, 12 August 2017 (UTC)


We also don't create character pages in advance for characters of the day, even if it's on a user page. Just create it after SM040 airs. Playerking95 (talk) 15:18, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

My bad, might as well keep for now and move it when it does air now I've created it.--BigDocFan (talk) 15:19, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
User pages are usually create by people who wish for them to be main spaced or who think they are important enough to get a page under a user, so creating one for a character who we know nothing about or if the character will appear again is kind of weird. Do you get what I mean? Playerking95 (talk) 15:24, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
I do so will remember for future reference--BigDocFan (talk) 15:25, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

Character pages

Hey. Please don't create pages for anime characters unless you have some info to add. This is really too barebones. Redlinks aren't necessarily a bad thing. It's better to have a redlink than a page that contains almost nothing. ☼ BlazingFist ☼ 12:50, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Episode Plots

The plot you wrote are awesome. Sometimes however, the sentence you wrote are too long and difficult to read. Just like when you read, too long of a sentence takes the breath out of you. "When", "As", "Because" are some phrases you often use to join these sentences but making them too long. If I make sense. XD

An example would be "Inside the school grounds, Ash asks Rotom what kind of Pokémon live on Akala Island but as Rotom does a search, he is hit by a Tauros which sends him flying as Charizard lands in front of Tauros to stop him as its trainer and Kiawe arrive with Kiawe telling Charizard to keep holding on as his classmates look on as Ash lands on the ground."

You can instead write it as "Inside the school grounds, Ash asks Rotom what kind of Pokémon live on Akala Island (period) As Rotom does a search, he is hit by a Tauros which sends him flying (period) As Charizard lands in front of Tauros to stop him, its Trainer and Kiawe arrive (period) Kiawe tells Charizard to keep holding on as his classmates look on as Ash lands on the ground (period)"

This is so much more comfortable to read. Haha, you can what I mean? — Ruixiang95 11:29, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

And here was me worrying that the sentences I was right were too short. Noted for future reference.--BigDocFan (talk) 14:19, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
Agreed. The sentences are overly long and can benefit from being split off into multiple sentences. Also, I think I might've seen some grammatical errors along the way, but I cannot recall any specific examples. Whatever the case, I gave up trying to improve the plot of SM030 and tagged it, along with other episodes' plot sections you had a significant amount of contributions to, with a cleanup template. Hopefully you and/or other users can resume where I left off. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:49, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

A Theory on Clemont's Heliolisk's voice

Hey BigDoc, I have something I want to share with you, and It's about Clemont's Heliolisk. We now it was voiced by Ryan William Downey, but I think it previous might have been voiced by Tom Wayland. On your page for him, it mentions Ryan joined the series during season 18, which makes sense as all his characters appeared in season 18 or after that, EXCEPT Clemont's Heliolisk (who first appeared in season 17). And if it was someone else, there would be no reason to recast them (the only other actor who left in season 18 was Jennifer Forziati-DaCosta). Super10ZX (talk) 17:26, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

As far as I can tell, S18 was Downey's debut unless I'm mistaken, Tom Wayland could have voiced Heliolisk before he was sacked but sadly this can't be confirmed.--BigDocFan (talk) 22:43, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Preview button

Please make sure to use the preview button, even when adding multiple images to a section. I'm sure you're excited to back on the wiki again, but this shouldn't take 10 edits. --Abcboy (talk) 11:37, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

I can only apologize Sir, as you say I'm excited to be back on Bulbapedia, I do hope the images are satisfactory.--BigDocFan (talk) 11:39, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Please use that preview button. I had to resize and re-position the new photos you added to the articles of Ash's traveling companions to make sure they don't interfere with other photos. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:22, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Again. Use the preview button. If you're going over a large page or planning to touch multiple sections, use "edit this page" and do everything together. Tiddlywinks (talk) 14:24, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Your new page

Hey BigDoc. So I see you are making your own Voice Actor predictions page. I'm perfectly okay with this, it will be nice to see another persons predictions! It wasn't even my original idea in the first place, it was based off pages other people made, but haven't changed in a long time. Super10ZX (talk) 16:16, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, hope you continue with your own page, will be nice to see how our predictions compare.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:17, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Consecutive edits

I just need to remind you that you shouldn't be doing 9 or so consecutive edits with a short period of time. Playerking95 (talk) 15:26, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Pre-airing edits

Hi. I want to let you know, I've been asking people not to hide information about an episode on any page except the episode page before it airs. So that means refraining from your edit here adding hidden templates for Nanu's Pokemon that were expected for SM073/74. That hidden info has just now resulted in a minor edit war, and that's a pattern that has happened several times previously as well. As far as I'm concerned, that all adds up to more of a hassle than it's otherwise worth. It'll be much cleaner if people just add the info fully and with much less room for argument once the episode airs.

So, please confine pre-airing edits of hidden information to an episode's page. Thank you. Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:44, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

I understand and started removing some of the edits but have made a copy of them to be posted when the episode airs.--BigDocFan (talk) 15:45, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
I just noticed a bit of that. I appreciate it, thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:49, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
You're welcome, I enjoy contributing to Bulbapedia and would hate to be removed from it so I prefer to work with admin to avoid any conflict and accept anything wrong that I did.--BigDocFan (talk) 15:51, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Where's the source?

Where's the source for the latest titles? Playerking95 (talk)

No idea, saw the titles added to other pages so just copied them over. Just checked the forums, Apple TV Show/Episode Universal Search--BigDocFan (talk) 11:41, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Episode titles

A little heads-up, please remember to italicize episode titles and provide links to the articles. You seemed to know what you were doing before so I don't know why I had to apply those corrections this time. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:26, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

My bad, thought as they were listed above, I didn't have to--BigDocFan (talk) 20:28, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
It seems to be a given given all the other articles I've seen and read. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:29, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Main anime images

If you are going to replace an anime image on a species article, please replace it with an image that shows the Pokémon's full body and the Pokémon being the focus of the image. An image of the Pokémon in a distance is not going to cut it. Thank you.--ForceFire 15:25, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Again, the main images must be a full body shot, not just a shot of its head or whatnot. Full body, and center of the image. Also, you don't need to literally update the images to the most recent appearance, which is what I feel you are doing. Unless there's a centered, full body shot in a recent episode, it does not need to be updated.--ForceFire 05:35, 18 June 2018 (UTC)


Where are the Chansey and Raichu in SM081? Playerking95 (talk) 11:43, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

radek.tadajewski.7 from the forums spotted them in the crowd and asked me to add them.--BigDocFan (talk) 11:46, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
I've looked through every crowd shot and I can only see a Blissey and no Chansey or Raichu. Could the user provide an image? Playerking95 (talk) 11:53, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
They can be seen in the preview of this episode, so does the episode itself. His words, not mine.--BigDocFan (talk) 12:02, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
You should go and verify this yourself BigDocFan, rather than believing everything one user says.--ForceFire 13:13, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
Nah, they're there. Playerking95 (talk) 13:15, 5 July 2018 (UTC)


Where did you see the Snubbull in the flashback? I can't see it anywhere. Playerking95 (talk) 16:56, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

It is mentioned in this review here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRZY3nZ2NEo--BigDocFan (talk) 16:58, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Voice actor articles

Next time you decide to create a VA article or move a userspace page about a VA, you need to use this as a template. Keep this in mind for next time. Thank you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:41, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Please do not disregard this next time you choose to create a new VA article. It's highly important that every VA article follows this basic format. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 06:20, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
I didn't, I checked through it and it all looked fine to me, but then again, I'm no expert.--BigDocFan (talk) 07:28, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
I told you before, please don't forget this whenever you're creating a VA article. Slow it down a little. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:44, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
Drat, was using Eddy Lee's page to layout the page but forgot to add the bottom bit, my bad.--BigDocFan (talk) 08:48, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Kenyu Horiuchi

Could you undo your latest edit to that page. As I said in another edit summary, the official source only mentions Samson. Here: http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/anime/pokemon_sunmoon/news/ Playerking95 (talk) 14:29, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Permission to mainspace

GrammarFreak is not a staff member, you shouldn't be asking him if a userpage can be mainspaced. You should be asking anyone on the Staff list, preferably the head of anime abcboy. Thank you.--ForceFire 12:21, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

My bad, he has been a help with previous pages so was asking for his help to get it ready.--BigDocFan (talk) 12:24, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

VA articles

Could you hold back on creating anymore VA articles, or at least make them in your userspace instead? Most of your recent articles are of questionable notability. Kenta Kamakari may have voiced a recurring character for more than one episode, but really, DJ Leo is only important to one of those episodes he appeared in, so in essence he only "appeared" (read: did something of note) once. Thank you.--ForceFire 15:06, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Will do--BigDocFan (talk) 15:51, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Ryota Iwasaki

Ryota Iwasaki is definitely not going to cut it as a notable VA to make an article on. Of all the characters he voices, Mr. Elec is the most notable but he only appeared in one episode. I highly recommend going to Bulbapedia:Project VA for further reference. Keep the userspace article, though; Mr. Elec might reappear in the future. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:30, 20 September 2018 (UTC)


As a reply, I am not TvRage, or whoever that is. Just to clarify. (I'm surprised my username wasn't claimed by now.) -Mystical (talk) 7:05, 21 September 2018 (EST)


I noticed you're the one who uploaded the "Sharpedo in the anime" image. It is a small detail, but you chose one where its design was wrongly drawn (see the pectoral fin? It's in a dark cyanish color, it should be white). Could you, please, find an appropriate image? ExLight (talk) 02:21, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

EDIT: Nevermind, it was actually Playerking95. If you have a better image it would be great tho. ExLight (talk) 16:52, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
Easy mistake, I uploaded the image for one of my pages, Playerking95 obviously liked it and used it for the page.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:54, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Using MAL filmographies

I understand you're making sure the filmographies don't look like the ones from MyAnimeList before your userspace VA articles are mainspaced. But I still suggest not completely using filmographies from MyAnimeList, for that could still constitute a copyright violation. Be more selective, if needs be. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 18:43, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Understood, guess imdb can be used as well.--BigDocFan (talk) 18:56, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Of course. But I will warn that IMDb can be easily edited by anyone, so some of the filmographies might not be too accurate. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 18:57, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Decided to delete most of the credits, last thing I want is compromising myself and Bulbapedia on copyright grounds. Do the credits listed look OK as they are?--BigDocFan (talk) 19:55, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, that looks good. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:11, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, hopefully Martha Harms will be worthy of mainspacing when she gets more confirmed roles. I suspect that among them are Officer Jenny which at present is to be confirmed.--BigDocFan (talk) 20:25, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
We'll see. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:17, 28 October 2018 (UTC)


Are you still planning on uploading anime evolution images? Seabiscuit2020 (talk) 02:34, 04 November 2018 (UTC)

No, I received a message from Chosen saying The images you've been uploading for use in your User: space conflict with our policy against personal images. Please ensure that your uploads are content that are relevant to the mainspace. Probably best I avoid doing this with evolution images--BigDocFan (talk) 08:03, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Archives talk page

Why haven't you replied to the messages I've left on your Bulbagarden Archives talk page? Also, something about the way you name your pictures: please try not to use big capital letters when it's not necessary. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:57, 6 November 2018 (UTC)


Hey! I see that you are constantly editing and improving some of my userpages that I hope get good enough to be mainspaced one day. So thank you for all your help, thanks for helping improve those articles. (Rioxイブイ 23:59, 8 November 2018 (UTC))

You're welcome, I enjoy helping fellow members as it help create friendships.--BigDocFan (talk) 08:46, 9 November 2018 (UTC)


Could you possibly get an image of the Braviary that were shown in a flashback being released back into the wild to replace the one for the Braviary that are in the "Previously resided in" section, because the one that's shown is the one that's currently there. Playerking95 (talk) 14:59, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Feint Attack

Not to sound to mean and I know you like editing, as we all do, but please check before deleting a move and calling it something else. If a sub says it's something else, please listen to see if it what they say it is. In this case, they made a mistake. It is not Fake Out. No where was "neko" said during the attack command, but "shiuchi" was. If you mess up like this, it hinders the site by displaying wrong information. Playerking95 (talk) 18:06, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

My bad--BigDocFan (talk) 18:16, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Please do not post links to illegal content on Bulbapedia. If you really wish to link an episode, there are official sites, like Hulu which at least has early seasons. Tiddlywinks (talk) 18:55, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

There appears to have been a slight misunderstanding, thanks anyway but GrammarFreak01 added the voice actors--BigDocFan (talk) 09:02, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

How did you get Lisa Ortiz's contact information, and could you ask her if she knows the Japanese cast? PKMN Trainer Ryan (talk) 13:45, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

I messaged her on Facebook not long after she became voice director, explained that Theresa Buchheister had previously sent me cast lists and asked if she would do the same to which she agreed and gave me her email address. I'll check with her about the Japanese cast--BigDocFan (talk) 13:46, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Ryota Iwasaki

Have you checked with an admin to see if your Ryota Iwasaki page can be main-spaced yet? He's voiced almost 10 characters in Sun and Moon. Playerking95 (talk) 15:30, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

I'll check, trouble is none of his characters have been notable apart from Mr. Electric so he might not be notable enough--BigDocFan (talk) 15:34, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Annice Moriarty

hello I am currently working on fixing a mistake that has been made in regards to the Ugandan-American voice actress Annice Moriarty, a woman that some in the anime communities have mistaken for a similar sounding voice actress named Kether Donohue I'm wondering if you can help me migrate the page over to Annice Moriarty as they are not the same person at all. I've looked all over the internet, and I am unable to find any sources at all, even if she was not my sister. Can I ask for help in correcting this mistake? We actually did a parody of this on a youtube channel we created called Kether Ketchup, which was meant to make fun of the internet's mistake about Annie. I would deeply appreciate help in fixing this error, and would like to know what sources people claim to have so we can address them. thanks. African Vulture (talk) 04:20, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Kether Donohue and Annice Moriarty

Hello I am going to make some edits based purely on two things:

  • The knowledge that Annice Moriarty is most definitely not Kether Donohue, and
  • The episode credits.

We know that both Donohue and Moriarty voice Lila, that was what Tom Wayland said. In fact it was Lila that was the source of the belief that Donohue and MOriarty were the same person, due to them both being credited and them both voicing the same character, albeit during different stages in her life. I will not add any biographic info on Ann. here's an easy way to gage my edits: If Kether Donohue's name appears in the episode, then we can credit her. If Annice Moriarty's name is there, then we must put Annice Moriarty.

I also want to remind you of something: I got 3 names for you:

  • Allyson Johnson (Agatha)
  • Kathleen Delaney (Rouge the Bat)
  • Caren Manuel (previously believed to have voiced both Agatha and Rough due to her similar voice to Johnson and Delaney)

Remember that? That's the other reason why you have to be careful with pseudonyms. thanks. So my edits are based on the credits and what Wayland had actually said. thanks African Vulture (talk) 21:04, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

I'm not getting involved with this, if admin approves it, then it is OK with me--BigDocFan (talk) 21:07, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

I don't know who is an admin. FF believes that MOriarty is a pseudony mdespite no proof existing, so I need you to be partly envolved due to your experience with voice actors.

Can you at least weigh in on the mistaken pseudonyms like the Agatha one? African Vulture (talk) 21:32, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Force Fire is an admin. BigDocFan isn't. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:34, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
I strongly recommend you look at your talk page African Vulture, Candice has been protected as a result of your actions--BigDocFan (talk) 21:37, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Perhaps you guys do need to examine where it came from, that Annice Moriarty was Kether Donohue. It appears all your guys's efforts are punishing me, rather than maybe figuring out where this belief came from, like I am. Yes it was uncontested for ages, so was Kathleen Delaney/Allyson Johnson/Caren Manuel. I have been asking the same question over and over and over again with no answer, and it is quite frustrating. Where did you get the information from that Kether Donohue was Annice Moriarty? I'm disregarding the fact that she is my sister, because I can't use that for sources. However I can challenge Bulbapedia, and I am. thanks. African Vulture (talk) 22:07, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Okay, if the VA is your sister, then the more I cannot trust your information. There's this cloud of bias and unreliability hanging over your statement. This is why it's important for admins to make the final word. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:09, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

This doesn't mean that examination isn't in order. African Vulture (talk) 22:18, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Yes, which is why I said the admins need to examine it. That way, they can give the final word. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:19, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

But which admins should I talk to. Notice how with the Kappa Mikey thing on Kether Donohue I basically forced force fire to provide a source? I'm asking just for the same. If I see a source, then I examine it and decide to either give u por continue. I'm also trying to prevent another Caren Manuel thing too. Rosebr10, who helped reveal that isn't active anymore. African Vulture (talk) 22:23, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Force Fire and Abcboy are the only admins I know. And I don't know who you're talking about anymore. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:25, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

I will talk to them. To basically sum it up quickly, as I have to go for a bit, Agatha used to list Caren Manuel as her english VA. For Sonic, Manuel was credit for Rouge in 4kids. Later, it turned out that Kathleen Delaney did Rouge and Allyson Johnson did Agatha. that's the lowdown on that. I'll talk to the admins in a bit, I have to eat and I'm going bowling for a bit. thanks. African Vulture (talk) 22:30, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Okay. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:37, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Update, I posted to Abcboy's page. On it I mentioned two other examples of long-held beliefs on Bulbapedia and other websites that got destroyed. Megan Hollingshead vs. Lee Quick (Officer Jenny]], and Megan Hollingshead vs. Emily Niebo (computer from Pokemon 2000). Both rolls (Officer Jenny and the palice computer) were credited both on and off Bulbapedia to Hollingshead, until it turned out (just like with Agatha and Rouge the Bat), that the long-held credit was incorrect. So be careful with pseudonyms if they are indeed pseudonyms, because it may turn out not to be a pseudonym after all. There has to be a way not just for administrators to identify where pseudonym information comes from, but also ordinary editors and readers, so they can say, "Ok, I know where they got that." I will also caution you about IMDB, Wikipedia doesn't like it, and when it comes to pseudonyms, there's no way to check where it gets the info from. thanks. African Vulture (talk) 01:19, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

pseudonym identifications

Hello The Annice Moriarty thing brings to light the issue of verification of pseudonyms. Fore example, nobody has identified where it is they got the idea that Annice Moriarty was a pseudonym of New York-born Caucasian voice actress Kether Donohue. Even though no source has been given for even the IMDB entries, it is still widely believed. However, nothing in the wayback machine of Kether's website shows anything.

What steps should Bulbapedia and other websites do to verify VA pseudonyms, in order to prevent cases like the Annice Moriarty/Kether Donohue or the Caren Manuel/Allyson Johnson/Kathleen Delaney incidents? I would like to see some concreet ideas in verifying tha tpseudonyms are true, rather than false.

E.G. if somebody claims "Kether Donohue did this roll under Annice Moriarty!", then they should have to prove that Kether Donohue used Annice Moriarty as a pseudonym. It shouldn't be a challenger like me saying "where's the proof?" having the burden of proof on them, as we only want to prevent potential mistakes. Let's say a pseudonym is true, E.G. John Smith uses David Jones as a pseudonym. How would we verify that John Smith and David Jones are the same person? What has been done to me would be the person coming along and saying, "hey, where did you get that John Smith and David Jones are the same person?" and Bulbapedia responding, "you better prove that David Jones is not John Smith or else consequences." In other words, we should assume that David Jones and John Smith are different people until a good source is able to be shown that says for sure that John Smith used David Jones.

How will we do this to prevent more Annice Moriartys or Caren Manuels? African Vulture (talk) 00:20, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

This is something that is best left up to admin, not me. I'm trying not to get involved but if I was you, I would speak to Force Fire (talkcontribs) about it, post on his talk page and await a response before doing anything.--BigDocFan (talk) 08:05, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Remember, I am not talking specifically about the Annice Moriarty thing, rather about pseudonym verification in general. African Vulture (talk) 12:31, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

I have experience dealing with voice actor pages, nothing about pseudonym's I admit but I always wait for admin to approve any information I have before adding it.--BigDocFan (talk) 13:16, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Ok, but then the admin has to identify a source. and I have contacted Force Fire about a few things and either he hasn't seen them or is ignoring them. I don't know and I won't say either way. Hence why I hesitate to contact him again. I think we should identify a source for the specific claim about Annice Moriarty being Kether Donohue as I'm not the only one who brought this up on the internet. You have to be able to tell people where you get information from no matter how believable it is. We can use the Annice Moriarty case as an example to go by for future VA info such as pseudonyms. I also wish to remind you of the Megan Hollingshead thing, where people for the longest time thought she voiced Officer Jenny. Remember that? I did research into that and Lee Quick wasn't credited. That's another reason to once in a while go back and double check things, even if you feel there's no need to, and even if it is uncontested for a while. You never know, it may turn out to be unexpectedly incorrect, just like with Ann and just like with Megan Hollingshead. African Vulture (talk) 13:34, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

All I can say is wait for admin to respond, last time you acted before waiting, the page was protected. If you think Force Fire is ignoring you, maybe confer with other admin about it--BigDocFan (talk) 13:38, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

I don't feel that FF is ignorning me, but I feel he just isn't seeing what I write. I like to view it that way so it's not so harsh. I mean being an admin is likely a busy thing. That said, should pseudonyms come up again, please have both you and an admin discuss where it came from. I suggest if you find pseudonyms, question them and confirm them. You add lots of awesome stuff about voice actors, and I am in love with your voice actor predictions page, it'sreally cool. So please, even if you don't comment on the Annice Moriarty case, it can be used as an example of why pseudonyms need verification. The proof has to be viewable for Bulbapedia's readers, so we can say, "ok you got it from here." I used to get flack on Wikipedia for adding unsourced material so I only ask that everybody else be held to the same standards as me. thanks. African Vulture (talk) 16:45, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Lipica Shah as Officer Jenny

Hey! I would like to know in which episodes, specifically, Lipica Shah voiced Officer Jenny like she says, because the latter article lists Emily Jenness as being her VA from BW006 to BW138. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:09, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Have tweeted Lipica and am awaiting a response, I get the feeling that Bulbapedia might have been mistaken when listing Emily as voicing Jenny.--BigDocFan (talk) 21:12, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Since the tweet was deleted, it can be suspected that he wasn't meant to tweet that before the episode got aired. So as to play it safe, I have reverted your edits.--ForceFire 05:24, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

Fair enough, will it be safe to add when the episode airs or should I wait for reconfirmation?--BigDocFan (talk) 06:54, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
It can be re-added once the episode airs.--ForceFire 06:58, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

Copying-and-pasting material

You really need to be careful when you're copying-and-pasting material. I notice you just copy-and-paste and then save without tweaking the pasted material so it could also accommodate other people's edits that were already being shown before you made the edits. I had to painstakingly fix everything you did so then it could match up to the standards that were in place before your edits. It's something I've had to do commonly in both mainspace and userspace articles. Just be sure to use the preview button and make sure nothing looks awkward before proceeding, please. Thank you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:54, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Oh dear, I didn't realize it was that bad.--BigDocFan (talk) 09:55, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
Well, it was. Next time you copy-and-paste something, don't click the save button right away. Double-check with the preview button. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:56, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
Noted for future reference, I'm really sorry about that--BigDocFan (talk) 10:02, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Status episode

Excuse me, BigDocFan. I have a problem. Ever since SM117 came out in the dub, I was able to watch it. Then when Team Rocket showed up and stolen Sandy, Meltan and Shaymin and got out soon after, Shaymin used Aromatherapy to heal Sandy in that episode, but even though nobody said it, it was revealed in closed captions. Similar to Kiawe's Marowak's moves. I talked to Force Fire about this, but no luck, even though I was just making a point. And I always have proof about the attacks and never give out wrong info. So I dunno what I should do.--CoolPokéGuy (Talk) 16:11, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Whilst I do agree with you that captions confirm the move being used earlier, Force Fire as admin gets final say in the matter. Given that Finnish was given a one week ban today as a result, I don't really want to get involved--BigDocFan (talk) 16:22, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm not 100% sure but when I asked Force Fire about Guzma's Golisopod and Scizor, he said All the pair has done is battle, so they're not notable. You might want to check with Force Fire--BigDocFan (talk) 19:16, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
Okay. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:16, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

SM122/24 WTP narration request

Could you please add the people who narrated SM122 WTP dub. It has to be the people who were the main focus. - unsigned comment from PokéSean (talkcontribs)

It is possible Matori and the trio narrated them because they were the main focus. Could you also add who narrated SM124? - unsigned comment from PokéSean (talkcontribs)
Ash and his classmates are the ones who read it, we agreed in the forums that if it is just them, they aren't notable to be added--BigDocFan (talk) 07:39, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
It is only a coincidence, assumption, and/or speculation but of course SM124 had to be narrated be the main focus and the normal gang is the main focus so I don't expect that. But SM122 was focused on Team Rocket. Name me another SM episode narrated by the main cast even though they were not the main focus.

Thanks to heard that. Now, I needed to wait to for Administrator permission to main space my one. According to them, that the roles must be over 10 plus. Then, the article will main spaced. Isn't true or not. Singaporean (talk) 12:23, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
If you're talking about roles in the Pokémon anime itself, the 10-plus rule would apply only if all the characters that are being voiced are characters of the day. If the VA in question is voicing a main character, then all other rules are thrown out of the window and the VA is unanimously notable. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 12:25, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Singaporean (talk) 12:29, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Okay. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 12:30, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Maybe wait until the new series airs to confirm he voices Gou in the anime before checking with admin if it can be mainspaced--BigDocFan (talk) 12:37, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
I think it's been confirmed that Yamashita is voicing Gou. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:58, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Copying-and-pasting material again

Hey! Once again, you need to use the preview button after copying-and-pasting material on articles. You accidentally turned the "Pokémon" section into a subsection while editing your userspace article, and this is something that I had to fix. Please, do not forget to use the preview button next time. Everyone else cannot be trusted to fix simple mistakes such as these, alright? Thank you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:38, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

Facepalm, sorry Grammar--BigDocFan (talk) 20:40, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
Well, be more careful next time. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:44, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
Also, I see you improperly linked Full Battle. Be careful of using redirect links, okay? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:45, 4 October 2019 (UTC)


I'm really sorry, BigDocFan. I had to update the evolution page for Sun and Moon. I just couldn't resist being incomplete. I just wanted to keep it updated so people can see how the anime prospered. Seabiscuit2020 (talk) 20:32, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Decided to delete the page, thought I'd already done it.--BigDocFan (talk) 20:40, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

H.D. Quinn vs. Tyler Bunch

Hello BDF. I may have figured out who H.D. Quinn is, however I'm going to need help from you or somebody who does have twitter. I believe Quinn to be actor Tyler Bunch, who is a member of Voices for Fosters. I get this from the fact that all voice actors on VOF are in Pokemon, and the similar voices. Now before you do anything else please tweet Tyler (@tyler_bunch) and ask him if he works on Pokemon, then if he voices some of the characters in Pokemon that H.D. quinn voices. I'd say the best way to do it is to ask about the characters themselves and if he confirms, then ask if he uses H.D. quinn, this way we can make sure we're talking to a Pokemon VA. Can you or somebody with a twitter help me please? African Vulture (talk) 19:13, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

Curious as I am to see if this is true, voice actors aren't willing to reveal if they're credited under a different name. There's some sort of law regarding actors credits. Because of this, I am reluctant to ask--BigDocFan (talk) 19:19, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

That's why I'm suggesting to ask if he voices the characters rather than asking if he's H.D. Quinn. I want to avoid mistakes like what happened with my sister vs. Kether Donohue. African Vulture (talk) 19:22, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

Go's scyther

I made some additions to the text of your page for Scyther (is it okay for you?). As it is your job, I thought it best to ask for your permission.--Hilaru Wazana (talk) 15:38, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Pokémon Masters cast

Hey! Since we have an entire VA cast for Pokémon Masters but not an entire section dedicated to it in the main article, I'm pleased to let you know I have a sandbox article dealing with just that. Edit it however you see fit. :) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 01:41, 1 March 2020 (UTC)

Would help if I could but having never seen Pokémon Masters, I wouldn't be much good, especially as Lisa Ortiz isn't the voice director so I couldn't use her as a source--BigDocFan (talk) 08:56, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
Oh, okay. Sorry about that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:37, 1 March 2020 (UTC)


You are receiving a block for edit warring for your contributions to the problem on SS014. As you made 3 reversions, your block lasts 3 days. In any situation, talk pages should be used before things go too far. ...In this specific situation, the fact that you were very obviously dealing with a brand new user means you 100% should have posted something to get their attention, especially being so experienced an editor.

When you return, I hope you remember to use talk pages a little more. Tiddlywinks (talk) 00:22, 9 March 2020 (UTC)

I find this block a little unfair, I actually reported it to Force Fire on Discord and I even told Mr Zacan about it in the summaries--BigDocFan (talk) 08:52, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
Turns out I didn't alert ForceFire to the edit war as I thought, this is still unfair--BigDocFan (talk) 08:55, 9 March 2020 (UTC)

User:Hikaru Wazana/Korrina (anime)

Hi, I started a project to make a page for Korrina and her participation in the anime. Can you help me or give me some tips on how to work the page?As she has a lot of content and her page is a bit messy, I thought it would be useful, since she will be a rival in at least one of the next episodes.Hikaru Wazana (talk) 21:34, 06 April 2020 (UTC)

Not sure if Korrina is worthy of her own page yet, have a look at my page for Leon to get an idea--BigDocFan (talk) 21:45, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
Hi again, which images are relevant to Brandon's page? One from the battle with Ash, another with Paul and one with a full body?If I can, do I send you the images hosted on a page outside Bulbapedia, or put them on Archives?Hikaru Wazana (talk) 18:18, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

The page needs a plot summary, it covers all of the points of the episode, so why? Infernape612 (talk) 03:24, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

Goh's Pokémon

Hi, I saw that you and other people started to work on new pages for some of the Goh Pokémon that appeared in the episode 23, do you think there are any that I could be creating, or at least helping? The one I did for Beedrill, do you think it's good, or is there anything I can add?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 18:14, 08 May 2020 (UTC)

Beedrill looks good, I wouldn't mind if you had a look at my latest two. I plan on doing one for Misdreavus soon. Can't think of any other notables just yet though--BigDocFan (talk) 18:22, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

I agreed why not. You always had pokemon with main characters to have thier own pages. Even with pokemon like Brock who barely had munch characteristics or personality to shown in from Kanto series or Johto like Geodude and Onix. Zubat didn't get munch role until later of series.--User:Gian9456 (talk) 02:49, 013 June 2020 (UTC)

That is something you'll have to discuss with admin.--BigDocFan (talk) 18:51, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

Oh. I saw this then. I assume it was you the administer --User:Gian9456 (talk) 18:51,13 June 2020 (UTC)

Chrysa's English voice

Something is troubling me. Isn't Casey Mongillo male, not female? How can he voice a female character? CAJH (talk) 17:50, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

I have no idea, maybe Casey is female--BigDocFan (talk) 18:01, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
He is clearly stated to be male. And it isn't impossible for voice actors or voice actresses to misremember their roles. The first four episodes were leaked earlier and I used to think that Mongillo was Ren's voice, not Chrysa's. It's odd that no one else isn't trying to think this through. CAJH (talk) 18:09, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Wait a second. Behind the Voice Actors is the only place stating that Mongillo is female. CAJH (talk) 18:11, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Turns out Casey is what they call non-binary--BigDocFan (talk) 18:16, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
I also figured out other reasons for my previous misunderstandings. I forgot to check out the part "Additional voices" from the ending credits from the first four leaked episodes. CAJH (talk) 12:15, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

Edit summary

Just letting you know, I deleted the edit summaries of the VA confirmation due to the gratuitous amount of personal information within including what looked like the VA's personal discord tag and what looked to be your own full name. Please be a bit more careful next time when sharing content like that, I'd hate for you or anyone else to get into trouble as a result. --Spriteit (talk) 07:42, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

Noted for future reference, in future I'll do what I do with VA lists and have an admin check them for approval.--BigDocFan (talk) 08:14, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

Personality section

Did you read them. What is your thoughts? - unsigned comment from Gian9456 (talkcontribs)
I guess you didn't like what i said. I just thought what I sen in the new episode was more updated version that's all. I can tell you didn't read anything I said.Truly sorry. I just wanted to help. - unsigned comment from Gian9456 (talkcontribs)

I was curious about what you think of this. Despite being recently captured, Darmanitan accepted Goh's orders without any problems. It appears to respect Pokémon it perceives as strong, such as when it greeted Ash's Dragonite with a fist bump after winning the battle against Golurk. It reveals to be smug, as it had watched Scorbunny training with Ash's Pikachu, it noticed that it didn't use any fire type moves. It demonstrates its own power to Scorbunny, Darmanitan had quickly become disrespectful to the rabbit pokemon by continually laughing away - unsigned comment from Gian9456 (talkcontribs) so what u thought - unsigned comment from Gian9456 (talkcontribs)

Old man (XY022) article

Just so you know, PardescanSlowbro tagged your old article for deletion, and I'm inclined to agree with their reasoning. Mind joining the discussion, please? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 00:38, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Reading the comments, I guess that he doesn't really do a lot to earn his own article so have no problem with it being deleted--BigDocFan (talk) 09:53, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
Okay. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:16, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

One question

Hi, can you help me with a question? Battle history normally enter the pages of a Pokémon? I mean, that battle of Goh against Ash, is it considered notable to be put in an article? When there was a discussion about the Scyther page, I think you said that only battles would be recorded, never cameo, so I put the battle on the Goh's Farfetch'd page and a user almost created an edit war removing this information from the my own user page claiming that such information is not notable(I looked for information in the rules and I didn't see it saying anything about it, in fact I thought the opposite of that). As you are more experienced, that battle would you put in an article written by you?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 13:41, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Neither battles were important like a gym battle or a world coronation ceremony battle so I don't think its important enough to be added.--BigDocFan (talk) 13:57, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
But Goh does not participate in a specific championship, how would that be the best way in this case?Well, anyway, thanks for the answer.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 18:59, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Goh Farfetch

Shouldn't these pokemon have its own profile page it been in episodes just like Sobble and Beedrill and Scyhter had done. - unsigned comment from Gian9456 (talkcontribs)

That isn't down to me to decide. Work has been started on a page but only admin can confirm it ready--BigDocFan (talk) 08:22, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

Preview template

We have a {{preview button}} template that should be used when informing someone about using the preview button. This is meant as an easy way to keep things neutral and helpful for first "offenses". Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:16, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Ah, thanks for that. I wasn't really aware of it before now, noted for future reference.--BigDocFan (talk) 19:31, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Aren't you forgetting something?

As a wild Pokémon Pinsir used to be agressive and hostile, attacking Ash and Goh at sight, however its agressive behavior have completely died down under Goh's possesion. Esquilo30 (talk) 18:20, 16 August 2020 (UTC)

No, Pinsir was just defending himself. At the end of the same episode, he appears more social in the Park's interaction;Hikaru Wazana (talk) 18:42, 16 August 2020 (UTC)

Goh's Hitmonchan

Hi Hello. Could you answer a question? Since Goh's Hitmonchan is based on a game event, is it valid to put the game information where it happens as it is on Ash's Pokémon (Charmander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle) page and their situations in Let's Go Eevee / Pikachu? Or is it better to leave without this kind of information?On a page that you put together, would you put that kind of information?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 13:32, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

I haven't a clue, I think you should check with admin about that--BigDocFan (talk) 13:30, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
My two cents would be to leave that information out for now. AdilTalk page 15:40, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

English dub cast

Hey BigDocFan, I would like to talk to you about the dub cast lists. Would you prefer via email or does Discord work better for you? AdilTalk page 13:11, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Discord would be easier if that's OK, I'm on Bulbagarden under the name Joe Crammond. Hope I'm not in trouble.--BigDocFan (talk) 13:14, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
Nah, it's all good. I just needed some help from you, hence the question. Discord works, thanks!. AdilTalk page 13:19, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Adding voices actors for Pokémon via audio hearing

Actually, I heard the voice via audio hearing from the show but i don't know if it is allowed.

Please BigDocFan, can you tell me if it's allowed ?

If it is, i will always add some voice actors in for missing information in japanese and english.

Hi Hello. I started work on an exclusive page for Bea in the anime. If you can give me a hand when you have time, it will help me a lot.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 10:17, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Will do, I'm thinking of starting a page of her Grapploct later if you could give me a hand there as well.--BigDocFan (talk) 10:24, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
Can you upload Bea's image as a child?I don't think I'm going to get it in good quality this time.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 00:17, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

You added the voice actors for Goh's Venonat and Nidoran♀ before we knew those Pokémon were Goh's. Please don't add stuff like that until we know who the Pokémon belong to in future. Playerking95 (talk) 11:12, 27 November 2020 (UTC)


How do I rename a page for the main space? I saw that ForceFire approved the Morpeko page as well and how you did it on the Greedent's page you should know how to do it. Can you help me with what is still missing?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 11:38, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

What you have to do is go to where it says Move and click on it like you can see in this screenshot here. [2], It will take you to a page like this where you have to change it from User to Main and change the title. [3]. I tried to do it for you but there was this warning You do not have permission to move this page, for the following reason: A page of that name already exists, or the name you have chosen is not valid. Please choose another name.--BigDocFan (talk) 11:45, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I tried it here too and got the same message. Does this mean that only site admins can do this?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 11:48, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
Normally we can do it fine as I did with Greedent but I'm guessing there's a redirect link for Morpeko (anime) preventing you from mainspacing it at the moment. I have asked Force Fire on Discord about it.--BigDocFan (talk) 11:50, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

pokemon anime moves page

Because you have a pokemon anime moves page that you want deleted eventually, I am interested to have an anime move page for my userspace especially since I believe lost track of how many times Pikachu used Thunderbolt, Meowth using Scratch and/or Fury Swipes, all instances where a move is used in the main series anime and which moves appear in each anime. Please reply when you can! If you are okay with this, I may also need your help with creating and editing such pages for each.Ctc1017 (talk) 10:46, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

I have no problem with you creating your own page for it--BigDocFan (talk) 13:55, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
Then I will need your help as we need to start at square one (aka the first episode of the original series). You can help as much as you want and take as much time as you need to help fill these pages out. We should go by the Pokemon's movesets in the Japanese since the dub does get a number of moves wrong (especially in the earlier seasons). Reply when you can!Ctc1017 (talk) 21:55, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
I had the thought of having each episode separate anime moves into three categories: Activated (actually used), unsuccessful (a Pokemon is told to use a move, but it does not for one reason or another), and mentioned (it is confirmed verbally by characters). I thought of using concepts from the table you used on the former anime moves page you used to work on, but I want to add a notes column as well. Reply your thoughts on all of this, please! Thank you!Ctc1017 (talk) 18:22, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

Jenny (M08)

Hello at Jenny (M08) you undid my edit. Where is the source that says that Suzanne Goldish does this role? She doesn't have twitter so I can't aask her. Asside form IMDB(https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0875609/fullcredits) which you said isn't reliable, I can't find anything. Would you mind telling me where this Suzanne Goldish comes from please? Or are you listening to that old Chatot from Driftveal city again? Aden Singh (talk) 14:14, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

I think you're better of speaking to admin about this, Bulbapedia has they policies when it comes to voice actors, we don't play it by ear. Suzanne Goldish was credited in the role by Bulbapedia before I started editing so they must have had evidence back then, unless new evidence from a reliable source comes to light, we keep Suzanne Goldish as the credited actress--BigDocFan (talk) 14:26, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

And that is exactly what lead to many bogus claims in voice acting. Remember Annice Moriarty V. Kether Donohue, Ursula Conlon (Shannon Conley) V. Carol Jacobanis, etc? Aden Singh (talk) 14:45, 16 December 2020 (UTC)


Hi, I would like to know if you can get some captures for the JN060 episode. Like, I needed the display screen for Ash's match against Rinto, one between the two facing each other (to put it in the article, right when the appearance of the display happens, there is a very good one of them in full body with their respective Pokémon [4]), and one where it shows him in full body (or at least, more than the face, to put it in the article).For this last one, this one seemed to be the best option.[5]It happens at 11:18 of the episode, more or less.

I mean, if I'm not going to give you any trouble.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 01:52, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Should it be mentioned

this is amazing the second time fully evolved for ash --Gian9456 21:53, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

Transferring pages

Hi, I was wondering if you're interested in adopting some pages that I still haven't been able to put in the mainspace. Let's say, instead of being a Userpage with my nickname, put it with yours, then you would edit it as you wish. The pages would be these here....

Some are virtually ready, so it wouldn't need much work, but I'm doing this because I'm going to ask an administrator to delete what you're not interested in keeping active. Ash's page from the Journeys manga, I think it would be helpful to decrease the extra size of the anime counterpart's page. The biggest job there will be getting the images of his Pokémon, which requires a little searching. Bea's page I think by the end of Journeys will have enough to go to mainspace. Has interest?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 21:29, 04 August 2021 (UTC)

I would really appreciate it if you could help me with this. --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 19:20, 23 October 2021 (UTC)

Sure, personally I would use the existing images of Goh's Pokemon in the hopes that in the future, we will get a good clear image of them, also might I suggest the title Goh's Elemental Monkeys‎‎--BigDocFan (talk) 19:20, 23 October 2021 (UTC)

Forums links

If you have a specific post in a forum thread you want to link to, there's a button on the post to get a link directly to it.

The post with the Kiley VA confirmation is the first post on page 37 for me, for instance. glikglak 18:05, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

Hello. I don't know if you have permission, or if you're admin or not, but I tried to edit Ash's Talonflame's image, but it was locked. I assume because there just too many edits and back-and-forth arguements about the image. I found a image that might suit better than the current one, but as I said earlier, I can't edit. I was searching for users that possibly could and came to your page, so hopefully you can help. Do you think this image here is good enough to replace the current one?

HygorBH (talk) 03:17, 6 February 2022 (UTC)

I personally prefer the current version. It is closer. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:41, 6 February 2022 (UTC)


Congrats on the promotion, pal! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:55, 1 March 2022 (UTC)

Thanks, I look forward to using my new powers to help Bulbapedia and the other admin--BigDocFan (talk) 11:37, 1 March 2022 (UTC)

Leon's Charizard

Hi. I don't know where else to communicate with you, so I'll be coming here. Sorry to bother, BTW. But I don't know if I'm seeing it wrong, but I think the image you uploaded for Leon's Charizard has a small error from the animation team. Charizard's eyes are completely black instead of blue like all other Charizard in the anime are depicted. I just wanted to confirm whether I noticed the error or if I was wrong about it. Again, sorry to bother.

Just to let anyone know, I came down with Covid19 on Monday 4th April 2022, apart from a cough and the need to self-isolate I am fine, had the vaccines and young and reasonably fit and healthy so I should be fine.--BigDocFan (talk) 20:51, 6 April 2022 (UTC)

Italian redub and voice actors

Since you're specialized in VA stuff, I would like to ask a favour. I've been adding a good number of Italian roles, but there's a little issue. Since Season 1 and 3 were redubbed, I sometimes have trouble founding a standardized way way to represent VA roles without creating ambiguites. For example, in Misty's page we have "Benedetta Ponticelli (BW116, K2 redub)", because BW116 is the only not-redubbed episode where she voiced her and K2/TPCi redub refers to EP001-EP157 (excluding Season 2) Should this be specified to not give the impression that she voiced her in a BW116 redub? So far this has generally been done when more than one actor has voiced the same character in said redub (Giovanni is such a case). For comparison's sake, I suggest to look how it was handled for Duplica, Todd Snap, and Jessebelle. If you need more details I'll provide what I can. Thanks.--Ricbolog1310 (talk) 08:01, 16 April 2022 (UTC)

Not really sure how to respond if I am honest, whilst I do specialize in the VA's, it is the Original Japanese and English dub that I focus on--BigDocFan (talk) 19:33, 16 April 2022 (UTC)
I get it. Since this could happen for every dub, I was just wondering if there was some standard on Bulbapedia for situations like this--Ricbolog1310 (talk) 19:40, 16 April 2022 (UTC)

Fixing "gif" images

Can you edit this template [6] so it won't use gif images anymore? I sent new png images and instead of "File:NormalIC.gif" it should say "File:NormalIC RSE.png".--Rocket Grunt 14:55, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

Actually, Chosen already helped, but I'd ask you another thing. Would you send a few images from the anime that are missing here: [7]?--Rocket Grunt 10:40, 25 April 2022 (UTC)

RE: Goh Pokemon Pages

I understand. I'll make sure to ask next time. Also, I don't know if this is the correct way to reply, or if I should've just replied on my own take page, but regardless, I'll make sure to not commit the same mistake again.

Logo Free Images

Hey man, I wanted to ask: How do you obtain logo free images? The older series always have logos whenever I watch them.

Champion anime pages

Could you move User:Hikaru Wazana/Lance (anime) and User:Hikaru Wazana/Diantha (anime) as Lance (anime) and Diantha (anime) please, because they might have made the limit for them to have their own page. Can you also make one for Steven Stone in the anime for the same reason please.--MinnieG (talk) 15:30, 17 June 2022 (UTC)

I'm holding off on doing your request until more senior admin approve it. If not approved straight away, I will at least start work on a page for Steven--BigDocFan (talk) 20:45, 17 June 2022 (UTC)
I understand and thank you.--MinnieG (talk) 15:58, 17 June 2022 (UTC)
Hi Minnie, if you're helping these pages do the missing work, it makes it easier for them to get approved. I mean, Diantha's page needs a better description of League events up until the Team Flare arc. I haven't done that yet because I need to do some research, To make articles like this, I'm trying to watch the episode from the point of view of the character I'm trying to write the biography, and that's kind of complicated. I saw that Bigdocfan started one of Steven's, so I'll try to help on this one too to stay organized. I still want to see if I help with the content of the Leon's Charizard page to see if it goes to mainspace at once.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 15:03, 18 June 2022 (UTC)
I would also say that some of the grammar on those pages should be fixed up a bit as well. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 15:31, 18 June 2022 (UTC)


In Bulbapedia:Epicode, the "Anime without epicodes" section is incomplete. Could you add the following episodes to the section?

KadenLovesVulpix (talk) 09:00, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

Additionally, I'm not sure if clip shows or Pokétoons should be added as well to the list. KadenLovesVulpix (talk) 09:29, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

Goh's Arctozolt

Hey, I rewatched some of Journeys's old episodes, and saw that Goh's Arctozolt appeared in (at least) three episodes. Its debut episode, well it was prominent for about 90% of the episode (unlike most of Goh's Pokémon). And like, I said, made a few more (somewhat) prominent appearances on Journeys. I already have a draft created and ready to post it, so may I have permission to officially post an Arctozolt article on the Main Page of Bulbapedia?

HygorBH (talk) 04:49, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

For Arctozolt to get its own page, I feel it is going to need more prominent appearances than it has already--BigDocFan (talk) 19:07, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
I see. So, if it makes one more appearance in a new episode, a page can be allowed? HygorBH (talk) 00:17, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
If it has a notable role in said episode, then it should be notable enough, I would check with another admin like Force Fire to confirm it first though--BigDocFan (talk) 06:44, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
Alright. Keep me posted! xD HygorBH (talk) 06:05, 29 June 2022 (UTC)

Goh's Venomoth

For starters, I want to apologize for the Butterfree article without asking for permission first. I know I've been warned before, but it legit skipped my mind as I started creating it. It won't happen again, I guarantee it.

On that note, I was wondering about Goh's Venomoth. It has just about the same appearances and relevance as Goh's Butterfree, and many episodes, those two share moments together and work together as well. So, I was wondering if Venomoth should also get its own page. HygorBH (talk) 19:15, 9 July 2022 (UTC)

I'll pass your comments on to the other admin, personally I'm not sure it is notable, Butterfree played a major part in the Cubone episode which Venomoth didn't appear in.--BigDocFan (talk) 19:19, 9 July 2022 (UTC)
OK. Thanks HygorBH (talk) 02:27, 10 July 2022 (UTC)
The response from admin is a no, feel free to start work on your userpage like I have done with some of Goh's other Pokemon, for example--BigDocFan (talk) 08:32, 10 July 2022 (UTC)
I'd like to give my view, sorry if it seems like an intrusion, but I think that at the current moment it's not very good to make pages for Goh's Pokémon. We're going to the moment in the anime where either Pokémon is going to be important or not, mainly because we don't know what Goh's role will be after Journeys. In theory, the only story arc that Goh will receive will be the conclusion of Project Mew and I don't think we'll see much beyond that. I say this because I intended to make a page for Regieleki, but without more information I will avoid doing it.Hikaru Wazana (talk) 14:33, 10 July 2022 (UTC)

My edit undo

Hi Joe today (10.09.2022) you retracted my edit on the page about Raichu -> Minor appearances section . It said in parentheses that it was Raichu Goh's. So that means I shouldn't add it if this Raichu was Goh'a or other trainers even though He appeared in the episode ? I apologize for asking probably such a trivial question however I would not want to make the same mistake again. Regards. BartoszToLolek (talk) 22:23, 9 September 2022 (UTC)

Simple, it was shown at Cerise Lab so it makes sense that it would be Goh's--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 07:12, 10 September 2022 (UTC)
Yes I know that he belongs to Goh, He was on Cerise Lab even twice (At the beginning and end of the episode), I just mean why you removed my edit, As I wrote unfortunately I do not understand it and I would not like to make the same mistake again. There is some kind of relationship, rule or maybe my edit should appear maybe in another place ? BartoszToLolek (talk) 15:23, 10 September 2022 (UTC)
Goh's Raichu has her own page so the section that you added wasn't required--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 15:24, 10 September 2022 (UTC)
However, I understand that in my opinion, all in all, if there is a main page about Raichu where most of the episodes in which he appears should be listed there this episode as well as others so that you don't have to just search on each page for the given information. I also looked at the page about Goh's Raichu you mentioned and I don't see there the information that he was in the episode "Not Too Close for Comfort!" so maybe I'll add such information there ? BartoszToLolek (talk) 16:08, 10 September 2022 (UTC)
Not every appearance of Raichu needs to be noted. If Raichu didn't do anything in an episode, then it's not notable.--ForceFire 16:46, 10 September 2022 (UTC)
Of course, I understand you, but there are really a lot of excerpted episodes in which Raichu does nothing or appears for about 4 seconds throughout the episode or is somewhere far in the background for a moment. (I am, of course, able to give examples of such episodes there are several and I know them) In my opinion, if there is already a list with such episodes then why not also add, for example, what I wanted to add. As for the episodes in which a particular Pokemon appears for only a brief moment, in my opinion it should be specified than just information that he appears there. I think it would bring more order, and there are quite a few episodes where such information would be useful in my opinio, Of course, I realize that you would have to go through hundreds of episodes now, but you can always introduce something like this from now on. Greetings. BartoszToLolek (talk) 17:14, 10 September 2022 (UTC)
If the Raichu in question was Goh's Raichu, then it'll never be listed in 'minor appearances' because it is already considered 'major' regardless of its role in individual episodes, and most, if not all of its appearances should be listed on the article. If we listed every time one of a main character's pokemon simply showed up in an episode as background fodder under minor appearance, that'd become untenable. You'll note that Ash's Muk doesn't have every time it hugs Oak listed under Minor. I suggest you read other pokemon entries to have a better handle on what the differences are on what goes under major and minor appearances.Kai * the Arc Toraph 17:40, 10 September 2022 (UTC)

Game mechanic vs. mechanic

Thanks for your help with the move from Rocket Brothers to Rocket Siblings. On a related note, might you be able to help facilitate a decision on a couple other pages that may need moving? The page Memory (game mechanic) and Mystery Dungeon game mechanics use the full term "game mechanic" while Season (mechanic) and Pokémon Tower (mechanic) use just "mechanic". Could we settle on one for consistency sake and then move the appropriate articles? Furthermore, Pokémon Tower (mechanic) may need to be moved to Pokémon Tower (Mystery Dungeon) to be consistent with other Mystery Dungeon-related articles such as Status condition (Mystery Dungeon). Thoughts? Landfish7 21:48, 12 September 2022 (UTC)

I have passed it on to the other admin who will consider it--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 21:53, 12 September 2022 (UTC)

Pokémon Mezastar and others

Hello, I have a series of questions and I don't know if I would get the answers from you, I hope I'm not bothering you, but here goes:

  • I started a thread on Ash's page about a split, do you have any thoughts on that? Would it be possible for you to give your point of view on this? I started the initial project of what would be the new section of the games page with the presence of Ash, did you get to look?
  • I put some sections referring to Pokémon Mezastar in some pages of characters, I uploaded some images too, the image of Iris I left as the main artwork of her page. Was it the best option? I mean, would it be better to leave the image of the anime itself or is the use of this better?I left it with the game art because it shows Iris with a full body, but I don't think the decision is up to me.
  • Are the images properly hosted?
  • I even believe that these sections need a bit of a revamp, who do I talk to to help me with the layout of the Pokémon section?
  • That page I created for Diantha, do you think it has a chance of going to mainspace? I mean, she appears in several episodes after I made the first page analysis request.

I believe this is it, thanks in advance-Hikaru Wazana (talk) 05:00, 15 September 2022 (UTC)

Sadly admin don't feel that Diantha is notable enough for her own page yet. Haven't heard about about the Mezastar stuff yet--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 15:01, 16 September 2022 (UTC)

Images Quality

Hey, sorry to bother. I noticed that you replaced some of my images with ones that have better quality. If you don't mind me asking, where you watch the episodes with that quality? I download them from Some-Stuffs. I don't know if that's where you watch it from, too. Regardless of whether you answer or not, again, sorry if I'm bothering. HygorBH (talk) 19:20, 22 October 2022 (UTC)

That is strange, I get my videos from the same place, I do compare the quality of your screenshots with ones I take and find it strange that there is a slight difference in quality.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 19:37, 22 October 2022 (UTC)
Huh, that *is* weird. Anyways, thanks for answering, bro! HygorBH (talk) 20:11, 22 October 2022 (UTC)
What version do you download, I always do the 1080p--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 20:20, 22 October 2022 (UTC)
1080, just like you. Through Magnet to be more exact. HygorBH (talk) 00:31, 23 October 2022 (UTC)

RE: Userpage Policy

This "per server day" you said. Three times "per server day" is allowed to edit my own userpage. How long is that? Is it three edits per day, or is "server day" a different amount of days? Sorry if it seems obvious, but as the good old excuse goes: "English ain't my first language" HygorBH (talk) 16:35, 24 October 2022 (UTC)

I'm assuming it is three times a day with server day being Bulbapedia time, not entirely sure what that time is--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 16:38, 24 October 2022 (UTC)
So, if I wanted to create another Draft Article today, it wouldn't be allowed? I created another one, but haven't uploaded it yet. I wanted to confirm first to avoid getting into trouble. HygorBH (talk) 17:22, 24 October 2022 (UTC)
The server time is UTC. You can usually see a clock at the top of pages near your username, but it's also reflected in things like the timestamps on history pages or Recent Changes. Tiddlywinks (talk) 04:58, 29 October 2022 (UTC)

Pokedex page edit

I noticed you reverted my change on the pokedex page. I just wanted a reason why so, as "able to display Pokédex entries from any Generation VI game as well as Pokémon Sun and Moon." doesn't seem to make grammatical sense without the "game". Thanks! -Luigi05 (talk) 18:56, 16 November 2022 (UTC)

your userpages for moves used by main character's pokemon

Although Satsjoe already created a user page for moves used by Ash's Pokémon, You should create a user page of your own for moves used by Ash's Pokemon. This is especially because not only does the page only showcases moves used by the Pokémon in their current forms (if possible), it hasn't been updated in a while and as such doesn't show any Z-Moves, Max Moves, and G-Max Moves or some new moves that Ash's Pokémon have learned later, such as Infernape learning Fire Punch. Your user pages showcase the moves used by the main character's Pokémon in all their stages not just their current stage. Please take this into consideration. Thanks!Ctc1017 (talk) 01:26, 12 January 2023 (UTC)

Character sections for game based characters

Hello, hopefully you'll be able to address my query. Given the change and removal of the character sections from many of the pages, would it be worth giving all of these game-based characters their own anime pages? Given most appear across two or more episodes, which is the definition or recurring, so the character sections can be re-added. I and Hikaru Wazana have already been preparing a few for the mainspace, like User:PardescanSlowbro/Norman (anime), User:PardescanSlowbro/Blaine (anime) or User:Hikaru Wazana/Clair (anime). PardescanSlowbro (talk) 12:23, 20 January 2023 (UTC)

With Blaine having only featured in two episodes, I don't think he is notable enough for his own page, as May's father, Norman might be worthy as might Clair, will check with the other admin.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 12:28, 20 January 2023 (UTC)
If this proposal is accepted, I'm guessing this will be on a case-by-case basis. Because you have characters like Erika and Chuck which have only featured properly in two episodes across two different series, plus a few flashbacks. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 12:43, 20 January 2023 (UTC)
MaverickNate is currently looking into why the Character sections were removed in the first place, it is possible I might have acted a bit too quickly with a comment, it is possible the character sections might be restored.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 12:45, 20 January 2023 (UTC)
It wasn't you or any admin who made the changes from what I could see, and it was only to some pages like the Gym Leaders for Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and other in game based characters like Malva. It was FinnishPokéFan92 who made the changes - I'm sure they'll acting on some advice. I was trying to find something in the manual of style that would answer as to why the change was made, but couldn't find anything specific. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 12:50, 20 January 2023 (UTC)
I went through and added sections back in! (At least for the ones I knew about). Essentially, in order to give consistent experiences/standards for readers on these articles, game characters like Gym Leaders, E4, Champions, etc., deserve to have their personalities expanded via these character sections. It's great how they give extra content to these characters that people typically enjoy in the series. If there are any additional concerns or questions for this, feel free to get in touch with me!

regarding a image that I uploaded (Brassius_anime.png) is it okay for you to not change it?

I don't mind you changing his pokemon images CuteSylveon42 (talk) 01:17, 4 June 2023 (UTC)

I'm going to wait until the episode airs on friday before upgrading the image as we'll hopefully get better images, this is why I feel you should wait until an episode airs and not rely on preview or promo images.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 08:32, 4 June 2023 (UTC)

It's just that I can never really upgrade them before you and besides their place holders, they are going to get upgraded anyways, I think the brassius iamge is good enough, unless you want his mouth to be closed. CuteSylveon42 (talk) 08:55, 4 June 2023 (UTC)

Based on the preview for episode 3 of pokemon horizon, it seems like amethio's ceruledge and friede's charizard will show up, does that make them notable? since they appeared for 2 episodes (after the episode aired), can I move their page to the mainspace? (CuteSylveon42 (talk) 21:38, 17 April 2023 (UTC))
They haven't really done much at present besides battling so I feel it is too early to say yes, please read our Notability_requirements--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 21:45, 17 April 2023 (UTC)

That's fair. I didn't know they created a page first. But yeah, you're right. That's my bad for not checking first. HygorBH (talk) 14:05, 27 April 2023 (UTC)

Brave Asagi Article

Hey, sorry to bother, but since no else (as far as I've checked) created an article for the Brave Asagi, I decided to create one at my userpage and wanted to check whether it was good enough to eventually be moved to the main space. Of course, there's some things left to complete, like some color schemes that I don't know the correct code for, but the article's structure is completed.

File name change

Mind changing the file name File:Screenshot (3443).png to HZ ED 01 V3.png? Thanks. QuickJolteon (talk) 13:06, 5 May 2023 (UTC)

Done, please be more careful in future. Also, I was wondering if you wanted to assist with a new page I've created, one for Amethio's Corviknight--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 13:15, 5 May 2023 (UTC)

Submitted it too early and sure I’ll take a look at the page. QuickJolteon (talk) 13:22, 5 May 2023 (UTC)

Rename this file File:Screenshot (3555).png to Bonnie Bag.png? Thanks. (anyone can help) QuickJolteon (talk) 05:19, 12 May 2023 (UTC)

Catch template for Legends: Arceus

Hi, Chosen. A month ago I created a "prototype version" of "Catch/Entry" template to locations from Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Though I took a Catch/entry8 as base, it took a bit time to create it. I don't know it could work, especially when Pokemon locations are a bit complex, if you note a odds in weather, time-space distortions, odds for Alpha specimen, etc. So... if you could got a free time, could you look onto these templates and check they fulfill a requirements to be officially moved on main space? Of course, if they don't fulfill requirements, you may redirect them to yourself and modify them... or take a page from PokeWiki.de and use "Interactive Map Location" template to Legends Arceus and Scarlet/Violet locations. Choice is, of course, yours. I ask you, because I think you're a much better in that cases ^^". Initially I asked Chosen to check this, but a month passed and I've got no answer, so I've decided pass this offer to you, pal. --Modikisha (talk) 14:43, 5 May 2023 (UTC)

This isn't an area that I specialize in as my main focus is the anime but I have passed on your message to the other admin.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 16:12, 5 May 2023 (UTC)

I Sincerely Apologize

I'm sorry for the confusion, I just recently made an account and had trouble editing the Overgrow (Ability) section. This is nothing like making a minor correction, and in the future, I will consult a guide for help. Arcion-Boutique (talk) 23:04, 12 May 2023 (UTC)

No problem, it takes new members a while to get used to Bulbapedia, easy mistake to make.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 23:08, 12 May 2023 (UTC)

Replacing Nidothing's page/name with Dot

Should I replace the names and move the page as "Dot" with the Japanese name tag on it? It's on the Japanese PM2023 website. QuickJolteon (talk) 10:46, 26 May 2023 (UTC) {{Japanese name}}

I would assume with her name confirmed to be Dot in Japan, we would move it to that page. I'm checking with my fellow admin at the moment just to make sure.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 10:54, 26 May 2023 (UTC)

Moving Diantha's anime page to content space

Me and PokemonMasterJamal3 have been making adjustment to Diantha's anime page and I believe that it is ready to be move to content space.--BlueSparkles (talk) 13:08, 20 June 2023 (UTC)

I'll check with the other admin to see if they deem Diantha notable enough for her own anime page, we are looking to relax some of the restrictions but I can't guarantee it.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 18:16, 20 June 2023 (UTC)
Hi I know it's been a while since I asked about this but have you talked with the other admins about moving Diantha's page to content space I hope they approve it.--BlueSparkles (talk) 17:13, 26 August 2023 (UTC)

Apologies regarding James's Carnivine

Sorry for updating James's Carnivines's ability as Levitate, I assumed it because Carnivine has only Levitate and no other ability (even a hidden one), next time I'll try to edit only if it is explicitly mentioned in the anime. Once again my apologies, I am new to editing! Urugavihs (talk) 12:46, 11 August 2023 (UTC)

No problem, even if a Pokemon in the games only has one ability, that doesn't guarantee it has the same ability in the anime, I made a similar mistake in my early days by putting Intimidate as Ash's Staraptor's ability.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 12:47, 11 August 2023 (UTC)


Your welcome on helping with Murdock's Alcremie and I hopes its gets move as a main content space pretty quickly. --BlueSparkles (talk) 17:13, 26 August 2023 (UTC)

Wallace's anime page

If you have time can you look and see if Wallace's anime pages is ready to be move to content space please. I believe it's ready. --BlueSparkles (talk) 17:13, 26 August 2023 (UTC)

I have asked my fellow admin about this and Diantha and am awaiting a response.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 17:22, 26 August 2023 (UTC)
Ok and thank you for doing that.--BlueSparkles (talk) 17:25, 26 August 2023 (UTC)
Wallace wasn't that relevant of a character. Aside from the Wallace cup arc and a sole appearance in Journeys, he didn't play notable of a role, as opposed to characters like Cynthia (who was constantly present during DP and also played a notable role in BW and Journeys), Lance (who was present in three different series), or Steven (same as Lance). IMO, Wallace is perfectly fine where he is now: as part of the character's overall article. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:37, 26 August 2023 (UTC)
I understand and I'm guessing you are gonna have to remove the page that the user made in the hopes of becoming main content space. Also, what did the admins say about Diantha.--BlueSparkles (talk) 19:38, 26 August 2023 (UTC)
Haven't heard back from them yet but it is possible that like Wallace, she hasn't played that big a role as was discussed previously.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 20:05, 26 August 2023 (UTC)
I understand but you'll see what the admins have to say about Diantha.--BlueSparkles (talk) 20:51, 26 August 2023 (UTC)
I have asked them, once I get a reply, I'll let you know or they will. Please be patient.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 21:12, 26 August 2023 (UTC)
I think the idea of Wallace's page being considered to go to the mainspace is nice, but as the person who created it, I don't think it's the best time yet for that. The page isn't ready yet, and as I'm trying to focus on the character pages for Horizons, Path to the Peak and next week the new animation based on Scarlet and Violet will be released, I won't have time to fix what's missing in this one page yet. Even more so because I would have to watch the episodes where Wallace appears and kind of "study" his appearance in those episodes.
I have other pages that I would much rather go to the mainspace now, and I've already talked to an admin about them. Anyway, I really appreciate your help on this content, BlueSparkles.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 13:53, 27 August 2023 (UTC)

Murdock's Pokémon

I want to ask you do you think Murdock's Pokémon pages are ready for content space, I believe they are because you said they have to have at least three to four episode that said what they were doing. I know you need to ask the other admins for approval and I hope they say yes.--BlueSparkles (talk) 12:42, 27 August 2023 (UTC)

Orla and Mollie's Pokémon

Hi if you have the time can you make a page for Orla and Mollie's Pokémon please. --BlueSparkles (talk) 13:55, 12 September 2023 (UTC)

Benny Demario

Benny's page says Tara Sands voices him, but she isn't credited in the episode, the only two female vas credited are Kerry Williams and Lindsay Warner, meaning Benny is probs Lindsay's only human role --BananaButter (talk) 23:28, 4 October 2023 (UTC)--BananaButter (talk) 23:28, 4 October 2023 (UTC)--BananaButter (talk) 23:28, 4 October 2023 (UTC)--BananaButter (talk) 23:28, 4 October 2023 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I'm going to double check with Tara before I remove her as the voice actor just in case she went uncredited.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 23:31, 4 October 2023 (UTC)
Tara has confirmed she didn't do Benny, sadly unless Kerry or Lindsay can confirm if they voiced him, we'll never know for certain who did--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 15:04, 5 October 2023 (UTC)

Marina (Johto)

Marina's page says Kelly Davis voices her, but the credits feature Caren Lyn Manuel but no Kelly Davis and Marina sounds A LOT like Caren's other role, Stella from Winx Club. --BananaButter (talk) 23:51, 4 October 2023 (UTC)

Edit to AG006

Hi, I'm not sure what you mean by "we have the blurb as published"? The use of {{sic}} is just to indicate to the reader that the two typos are intentional and part of a faithful rendering of the original text. Other blurbs or direct quotes with mistakes also use {{sic}} in the same way. Minibug (talk) 14:40, 13 October 2023 (UTC)

After checking with fellow admin, I stand corrected, using {{sic}} helps to let readers and other editors know the mistake isn't ours. Feel free to revert.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 17:17, 13 October 2023 (UTC)

Editing my userspace

I have already made an edit in an article (Gym Leader), so why can I not edit my user page? I thought the requirement was to edit an article in the mainspace, did I get that wrong? Thanks in advance :) Cat in a Wig (talk) 13:12, 29 October 2023 (UTC)

You only joined Bulbapedia earlier today so editing a page doesn't automatically mean you can edit your userpage, it takes a bit of time. Just be patient, check here for further details.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 14:02, 29 October 2023 (UTC)

Orla's Metagross

Hi I helped with editing Orla's Metagross and I believed that its ready for main space. If you have time can you look and see if it is please. --BlueSparkles (talk) 13:36, 18 November 2023 (UTC)

After checking with my fellow admin, Orla's Metagross hasn't really done much in many of its appearances so far so we don't deem it notable enough at present, it might become notable enough in the future though so work can continue on the page.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 17:56, 18 November 2023 (UTC)
Okay I understand.--BlueSparkles (talk) 19:40, 18 November 2023 (UTC)

Goh's 4 Floette

The problem for this section is that in the previous sentence it refers to all five Flabébé / Floette that Goh has caught. It then makes the word "their" seem as if it's referring to all the Floette. It should be changed to either "None of the moves of the four Floette are known" or "The White Flower Floette knows Grassy Terrain. None of the moves of the other four Floettes are known." Vi (talk) 14:37, 20 November 2023 (UTC)

Murdock's Rockruff

Hi if you have the time can you look at Murdock's Rockruff page please and I know I asked you this before, but the page has gotten more information on it and I believe that its ready to be look at again for a chance to be on main space. --BlueSparkles (talk) 17:29, 25 November 2023 (UTC)

Rockruff hasn't done a lot apart from HZ003 so we don't think it is notable enough just yet, it could in future become notable but we just have to wait.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 18:10, 25 November 2023 (UTC)
Okay.--BlueSparkles (talk) 18:25, 25 November 2023 (UTC)

Autoconfirmed user

Since the page about autoconfirmed users isn't very specific, I wanted to ask you how many days and edits I need to become autoconfirmed. Thank you in advance. --Napstablook 12:21, 26 December 2023 (UTC)

Admin prefer members not to know when you become auto-confirmed but this takes place after a specific number of edits or days, sorry I can't be more specific.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 12:59, 26 December 2023 (UTC)

Mollie's Chansey

Hi if you have the time can you look at Mollie's Chansey page that User:HygorBH made to see if its ready to be on main space please. --BlueSparkles (talk) 14:29, 17 January 2024 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay in replying, I wanted confirmation from another admin just in case I was wrong, Chansey hasn't played that big a part in the series as yet so we don't feel she is notable enough for her own page at present, we're happy for work to continue on Hygor's page on the chance she could become notable as we're still early days into Horizons.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 22:50, 18 January 2024 (UTC)
Don't worry about it I understand you were busy. Also, I understand that the page needs to be added more before being put on main space and it's true that the series is still early.--BlueSparkles (talk) 03:45, 19 January 2024 (UTC)
