Ancient Trait Cards

Dear Glik,

I was hoping you could answer some of my queries:

1. I have noticed that the Ancient Trait 'variety' of card renowned for its artwork style differences and ancient trait abilities (not included in other card types, though some cross over exists with some Mega Evolution cards also listed as Ancient Trait cards e.g. M Sceptile and M Rayquaza) is not listed as a TCG Pokémon card type, is there a reason for this?

2. Also should Kingdra's Primal Clash 108 and XY39 (which redirects to Primal Clash 108) cards be listed as separate cards in the Ancient Trait article due to artwork differences or not?

I look forward to hearing your response,

Thank you in advance.PardescanSlowbro (talk) 06:09, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

1) Because they aren't. They're Abilities by a different name, not a card classification.
2)Sure. glikglak 11:33, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the clarification Glik. Much appreciated PardescanSlowbro (talk) 15:20, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
If I may jump in - wouldn't listing them as separate cards be somewhat redundant for the Ancient Trait article? The formatting for that article for TCG listing is different from say, Pokémon-ex, so there's not as much of a necessity to list every single appearance, unless we want to change Ancient Trait's format. ht14 16:13, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
I'm not much of a fan of either format but coming up with something better isn't high on my priorities right now. glikglak 19:32, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

Spark on Thundurus-GX

Hello! I saw you added the attack "Spark" to this card but it's shown as "Charge" in the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. Was that a mistake on the page or the first attack is known as "Spark" on the physical card or the Japanese release? --Mine4017 (talk) 13:37, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

That was my bad. glikglak 13:46, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

GX Start Decks

Hiya. Just curious on the reason for the move of GX Start Decks to GX Starter Decks. The Japanese name for each product is GXスタートデッキ rather than GXスターターデッキ. ~~nuva-kal 16:05, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

It's how Nate translated the Battle Starter Decks. glikglak 19:25, 14 July 2018 (UTC)



Sorry for that talk page, I created it by mistake.

I thought I found something interesting when his Persian kept outspeeding my trained Ribombee, so I was going to write something about my tests. But I just found out that more important trainers have max IV and EV in important stats and 15IV in the rest. Apparently also nature, since that plus my tests confirms timid for Persian. Arctic (talk) 19:03, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

"Irredemable user?"

What does that mean if the reason somebody is blocked is "irredeemable user"? Just out of curiosity (and a little bit of paranoia). ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 21:58, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

A user is declared irredeemable if they cause enough problems to warrant a permaban. Such users tend to ignore warnings and repeat the actions that got them in trouble in the first place. Berrenta (talk) 22:04, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Okay, so it sounds like I've nothing to worry about then (at least I don't think I do). Thanks for answering. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 22:57, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Sky-Splitting Charisma cards

Are all the images for the Sky-Splitting Charisma expansion to be moved to the new name? If so, I'll leave each card pages as it is until all the images have been moved to the correct translation name. — Ruixiang95 01:55, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Evolutions & Celestial Storm Cards

Hi Glik,

I was recently looking through the recent Celestial Storm (TCG) article and noticed that many of the cards share the same artwork as many previous sets, and what alarmed me was that only Trainer cards had redirects to the original card pages, while the Pokemon species cards don't. This is also the case for the Evolutions (TCG), is there a reason for this?PardescanSlowbro (talk) 01:14, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

The Trainer cards are direct reprints, while those Pokémon species may have differences in their HP, Weakness, Resistance, Attack cost, Attack power etc. That's why those Pokémon species cards are new pages instead of being redirected to their original pages. When they have the exact stats, they will be redirected, a good example would be Dunsparce. — Ruixiang95 03:19, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Shouldn't R's page be about the substance in Detective Pikachu?

I asked Chosen 5 days ago, but he never responded. Anyway, there's a substance called R in the game Detective Pikachu, and it's a big part of the game's story. When I went to search its article, it redirects me to the Trainer Tower instead. I am definitely not able to write the article myself (I sucked at Language Arts), but I also don't want to leave the page as this redirect. What can I do? ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 00:18, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Find someone who's actually played the game? I've spent all of ten minutes on it. glikglak 00:31, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
I see. Do you know another staff member that does play the game, or do I have to ask them one by one? ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 00:41, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
Seeing as none of them have edited the page in any real manner, I'd guess none of them have played it. glikglak 01:06, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
Crap. I guess I'll have to ask them one by one. Thanks anyway. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 01:21, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Prism Star Card Page

Hi Glik,

I have made a start on the Prism Star Card page, it's currently under my user page at User:PardescanSlowbro/Pokémon ♢ (TCG). I've taken inspiration on its current content from other TCG category pages, but my knowledge is limited and I'm certain it still needs work to have the same technical details like other pages. Would you mind having a look over it and make any necessary changes, or at least point me to someone who may be interested to add more detail to it so then it can be mainspaced. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 00:35, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Because it's not strictly a Pokémon card classification, it's gonna be named Prism Star (TCG). So, change the article to fit that and I'll mainspace it. glikglak 01:06, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
Not a problem. The title and any reference to the article's former name have been changed to User:PardescanSlowbro/Prism Star (TCG).PardescanSlowbro (talk) 01:52, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Update TCGGallery template

I have been adding photos to the Fire Energy Gallery but this template maxes out at 18 images. Can this be increased to something like 30? Thanks TheFierceStorm (talk) 18:07, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

No. If it actually needs more than what it has, it'll need to be reworked to be less resource-intensive. Until then, use the template twice.
That being said, some of your uploads shouldn't be there. We have to limit the extent of TCG images we have, so cards that're the same except for expansion symbols or Holofoil differences don't get their own images. Also, the gallery should try to remain in release order as much as possible.
The release part of the infobox should also try to be in release order; splitting the English and Japanese releases apart isn't acceptable. Breaking down what events the cards were obtainable at is for a release information section, not the infobox. glikglak 23:12, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I apologize for reordering the infobox. It can be tough trying to distinguish event/promo/unnumbered cards and what list they correspond too since sellers and websites label them differently. My intention was to shed some light on what the different variations of fire energies actually look like. TheFierceStorm (talk) 13:40, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Pokémon Unavailable

I'm just am listing facts about that Pokédex #153-807 are unavailable in Let's Go!. So for example on game data. This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generations II-VII and Let's Go! on the species's game data. From, Sean 00:40, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

What you were doing was breaking the template. We'll make a proper way to display that soon. Also, your signature has to have a link to your userpage or your talk page. glikglak 00:49, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

Upload Image?

If I provide an image that needs uploading so that I can use it on one of the pages, can I provide it to you? I'm not autoconfirmed because theres only 2 pages I'm interested in really maintaining but haven't needed to upload an image until now. Junebug12851 (talk) 01:13, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Sure. glikglak 01:53, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank You Junebug12851 (talk) 02:06, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
And what is this for/called? glikglak 02:22, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Tyranitar Half Deck languages?

Hi there. I saw in the history of the Tyranitar Half Deck that you provided most information in 2015. In particular I'm interested to know about the different languages of the deck. I've seen cards of the deck in English and Italian before, but I'm very curious about the Danish and Swedish cards (since no other TCG card exist in those languages as far as I'm aware), and the Dutch ones (since I'm Dutch myself, and the Dutch releases are limited to the Base Set, Jungle set, Fossil set, and two variations of the WotC #4 Pikachu promo as far as I know.

Do you have any sources, or better yet pictures, to back up this information?

Thanks in advance for the response (and Happy Easter-weekend). Greetings, Kevin

PS: Italian isn't mentioned, even though I have seen Italian VS cards before. Will see if I can find them again (either on the Efour forum or Instagram). - unsigned comment from Quaador (talkcontribs)

A thread on efour or PokeGym had someone (I think a father of one of the participants) post pictures of the lesser/never seen English cards from the deck and they recounted that info. The Italian cards you've seen may have come from the revised version from the 2002 World Championships. I've never been able to find decent information on the event so I can't say for certain. Also, make sure to end your messages with ~~~~. glikglak 17:43, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
Ah ok, in that case I will look around for that old thread on Efour and PokéGym, thanks for the info. And after I just posted my comment I indeed thought the Italian ones might be from another set I was unaware of for the VS cards, even though I only knew about the Japanese release before seeing those English and Italian ones, and reading about this deck here.
Will now end properly with ~~~~, first time posting on a User Page on Bulbapedia.. Thanks for stating. Quuador (talk) 18:26, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Edit warring

I know this might not be your area, but there seems to be some edit warring on M22's page. The anime based mods don't seem to be responding lately. Playerking95 (talk) 17:33, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Question for page approval

I've already asked Force Fire if the following pages are fine for mainspacing:

WARNING ON THE SECOND ONE: This is NOT incomplete, as some content is hidden by <noinclude> tags. --TheICTLiker4 20:14, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

NewMove looks like it would take just as long to use as making a new move page regularly would. I don't deal with glitch mons at all so I don't know how that should be handled. At least ask Chickasaurus if you have all the information correct.
Regardless, mainspacing is handled by the editorial board. glikglak 21:31, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
Okay. I asked Chickasaurus, but she hasn't answered yet. --TheICTLiker4 18:43, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Is this signature fine?

So, I was just setting some preferences here, and I read about the thing with superscripts and subscripts in signatures. I was wondering if this signature: InvalidOStalk, which is the signature I use on the English Wikipedia, is fine to use on here, since it has both a superscript and a subscript, but only one of each. The policy is a bit unclear here, since I'm unsure if it means "only one superscript or subscript" or "only one superscript and subscript". InvalidOS (talk) 15:46, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

"<sup> and <sub> tags are limited to one at a time." is the line in the policy. You have to close them before you can use another one, no doublstacking <sup> tags. glikglak 17:21, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Double Blast (CTCG) -> Double Burst (ATCG)

I see you've removed my redirect again. I primarily added it because of the header on the Dreams Come True Collection (CTCG) page. It's using the Template:ChineseExpansionPrevNext, which automatically adds a trailing " (CTCG)". Whether that header contains Double Blast or Double Burst is irrelevant, since neither the Double Blast (CTCG) nor Double Burst (CTCG) pages exist right now. I'm not too skilled with the Bulbapedia markup yet, but since you've removed my Redirect, I'll leave it to you to fix the header on the Dreams Come True Collection page... Quuador (talk) 13:32, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

A question regarding ATCG information

Hi! I'm trying to find more information regarding the Pokemon ATCG. I'm from the USA, so finding information regarding this isn't very easy for me. However, seeing as you have contributed a lot of information to some of the expansions for the ATCG, I figure you could help point me in the right direction. Thank you so much! Scoot404 (talk) 07:19, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

I only know as much as can be gleaned from the countries' official websites like this and their Facebook pages such as this. glikglak 12:21, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Regarding Movesets

Hey, Recently I edited the Gen 1 Starmie moveset to also include Swift from its prior evoluton Staryu despite the fact it also learns it as a TM. Is there any reason why not to include it twice? I feel like it should be relevant to distinguish that the Starmie can learn Swift by itself for any unique no-TM runs/rules. DDX2 (talk) 10:08, 16 May 2020 (UTC)DDX2

I can see that being useful given TMs were single-use then. Do you know how often something like that occurs? If it's a lot, I'll have to discuss it with other staff. glikglak 22:51, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
I've never seen it used outside of my personal friendgroup and none of us are speed-runners or professional players. It's always been for us to create unique tournament rules every so often just to keep things fresh. Although I've considered bringing it up in the Smogon or Pokemon Perfect community just to see if any of them would be interested in trying it for fun as well. - DDX2 (talk) 11:24, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
I mean how often does Pokémon having TM moves that their prevo learns naturally happen. glikglak 12:04, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
Let's find out, since I never considered that. Ok, obviously it has to be stone users only. - DDX2 (talk) 10:22, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Pikachu -> Raichu - Thunder Wave, Swift, Thunder (RGB) + Thunderbolt & Double Team (Y)

Nidorino -> Nidoking - Horn Drill

Clefairy -> Clefable - Metronome

Jigglypuff -> Wigglytuff - Rest, Body Slam, Double Edge

Gloom -> Vileplume - SolarBeam

Growlithe -> Arcanine - Take Down

Poliwhirl -> Poliwrath - Water Gun, Body Slam

Shellder -> Cloyster - Ice Beam

Exeggcute -> Exeggutor - Reflect, SolarBeam

Staryu -> Starmie - Swift

Eevee -> Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon - Take Down

Also on some interesting unique cases I randomly discovered so far

Primeape can only learn Rage in Yellow if you don't delay Mankeys evolution and let it evolve at level 28.

Slowbro can only learn Withdraw if you don't delay Slowpokes evolution and let it evolve at level 27.

That's small enough. Feel free to add those for Gens I-IV. glikglak 16:59, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

TCG Formatting

Should I remove the recently added bold/italic on expansion articles or roll wit it? Pipefan (talk) 01:28, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Remove it. glikglak 01:29, 17 June 2020 (UTC)


Your created Battle Academy without realizing this page existed, please delete my version. Pipefan (talk) 08:21, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

Formerly unusable moves in Sword & Shield

Why did you make notes on several pages (like Conversion and Bonemerang) stating that the moves couldn't be selected prior to the version 1.2.0 update? While they couldn't legally be learned by any available Pokemon, the moves were fully programmed in and could be selected if they illegally added to a Pokemon's moveset. Pokemega32 (talk) 07:06, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Because they weren't usable. They were flagged as unselectable same as the moves with the removed descriptions. glikglak 11:28, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Battle Academy cards

While I admire the effort it took to add the Battle Academy cards in into the "additional cards" list for the various sets, I feel it clutters the list up. But if you feel they should be included, then maybe you should include all the cards in the Alolan Sandslash & Alolan Ninetales Trainer Kit as well.

KevlarX290 (talk) 11:11, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

It's precisely what the additional cards table is for. I'm aware of the Trainer Kit cards but there's more pressing things once I finish with the Battle Academy, so they'll have to wait. glikglak 14:55, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

New Pokémon Snap locations

Could a new part be added to the side games locations template that would allow adding New Pokémon Snap locations of Pokémon onto it? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:35, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

Nothing's hard-coded into Availability/Entry, you can make any game entry. glikglak 18:41, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Actually had suspicions of that sort, but just wanted to be sure if they were correct. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:25, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

Regional Forms

As I’ve said in my edit summaries, Sword and Shield established that in order for a Pokémon to evolve further than it can (or at all if it cannot evolve normally) in a specific region, it has to have a regional form as a precursor. Note how Farfetch'd, Linoone, Meowth, Mr. Mime, Yamask, and Cursola all have regional evolutions but at the same time have regional forms. Say you’ve somehow acquired a Kantonian Farfetch'd in Sword and Shield. Can it or will it evolve? No, as Sirfetch'd can only evolve from a Galarian Farfetch'd. Region-specific evolutions are specific to that Pokémon’s respective regional form.

I wouldn’t consider this speculation as it's based on a preexisting, established game mechanic. Crummymummy (talk) 20:13, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

They could change that at any moment, though. They change what are previously thought to be "established" precedents all the time. For all we know it could just be like Magmar and Magmortar. We won't know for sure until the game releases. --celadonk (talk) 20:17, 18 August 2021 (UTC)
Cubone and Exeggcute say 'hi'. Just because they decided in Galar to give everything a regional counterpart for new pokemon to evolve from, it's not a set rule of precedent, and even if it was, it's still 1) up to their discretion if they want to not give something a regional form and break this 'rule' and 2) unconfirmed. If Stantler and Basculin get regional forms, then we'll say it evolves from them. Kai * the Arc Toraph 20:26, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

Valid, but Cubone and Exeggcute don’t evolve into wholly new Pokémon, just regional forms. And about Magmar and Magmortar? Trading while holding an item had been a thing since Gen 2. Crummymummy (talk) 21:51, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

My point was the cross-gen evolution itself, not the method-- Magmortar was just the example that sprung to mind-- but for all we know, this could be like that too. We have no idea how it evolves. Cross-gen evolutions like Basculegion have been a thing since Gen 2, though, you're right. --celadonk (talk) 22:09, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

The thing is, I'm not speculating how they evolve, I'm using SwSh as an example of the mechanic to state what they evolve from in a more specific manner. Crummymummy (talk) 01:53, 19 August 2021 (UTC)

You don't know the game will follow that pattern, it's speculation. The official wording doesn't specify a regional form so we won't until it does. glikglak 02:01, 19 August 2021 (UTC)


Can I change every use of "Kantonian" etc. used in regards to regional forms?? There are still a few (like on "Game locations" section) and I think we shouldn't use them anywhere as long as games don't do that.--Rocket Grunt 13:40, 28 October 2021 (UTC)


How does one find the Japanese name for a move? I need to know because I'm trying to make the page for Raging Fury and other signature moves of Hisuian forms of already existing Pokémon. Thanks in advance! - totally signed comment from Kirbychu Showdown (talkcontribs) 20:18, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Page actions

I would like to mainspace User:Bfdifan2006/Wishing Chip, and Spriteit asked me on the Discord server for the reasons. Here's the list of reasons I also posted on his talk page (posting them here because apparently Spriteit pops up only on one out of several days):

  • Does not have a too generic name (like ?????)
  • Exists possibly as a development leftover, intended to be instead of the Wishing Piece. (Now that bit is on the page)
  • Has a counterpart article on 52Poké Wiki: zh:许愿星碎片(道具)
  • The unobtainable items page does not list the items' names in other languages
  • The items Teru-sama, Lock Capsule, Fairy Gem, Band Autograph and Strange Ball already have their own articles. I did not mention those that were changed into in-game functions of the menu.

The page has the item infobox, but it's hidden so it doesn't categorize the page while still in my userspace.

Additionally, some other questions:

  1. Can I move User:Bfdifan2006/Template:Stats/LA (and its talk page) to the mainspace? You did mainspace my LGPE stat template, {{Stats/PE}}, and it goes well - why not do the same with the PLA stat template? This is, by the way, a substitute to the note "Due to the different way stats are calculated in Legends: Arceus, maximum stats are not reflected in this table."
  2. Do you support the move of Island Kahuna to Island kahuna (note the lowercase K)? The reason is the fact almost all in-game dialogue refers to them without capitalizing any of the words. Done 21:26, 7 March 2022 (UTC)
  3. Do you support the split of List of Raid Boss changes (2020)? I want to split the page because it has too many templates.
  4. I made a new version of {{Starter Pokémon}}, under User:Bfdifan2006/Starter Pokémon. This is to use a responsive CSS flexbox, and to fix the error with the heading, which causes it to not have rounded corners. (Just one quote mark was missing, by the way.) Is it considered for mainspacing?

Let me hear your thoughts about all this. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 16:44, 5 March 2022 (UTC)

MisterE13's trying to lower the template load with the raid boss template. The rest I'll get an EB consensus on. glikglak 17:39, 5 March 2022 (UTC)
Oh, I see you moved Island Kahuna to Island kahuna. Great. Did the EB talk about the rest yet? --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 21:26, 7 March 2022 (UTC)
Not yet. glikglak 21:57, 7 March 2022 (UTC)

Island kahuna

Just out of curiosity: is the reason for the Island Kahuna page's renaming the same that was given on the talk page in 2018? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:45, 8 March 2022 (UTC)

Yeah? I didn't decide to just randomly move it. glikglak 17:23, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
Sorry. I had just gotten so used to the old name that seeing it getting moved felt jarring to me at first. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:10, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
Just wondering, though: should the old name be restored as a redirect page? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:16, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
No. The search doesn't take capitalization into account. glikglak 19:02, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
The real reason for the move was (quoting the above post), almost all in-game dialogue refers to them [island kahunas] without capitalizing any of the words. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 20:04, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
The Trainer class is still written "Island Kahuna", so I could easily see people searching for the page based on that. Hence why I think the redirect should exist. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:46, 9 March 2022 (UTC)
Searches are case sensitive.--ForceFire 12:10, 9 March 2022 (UTC)
They are actually not. If you do type "ash ketchum", it will still show the pages including Ash Ketchum, regardless of the letters being uppercase or lowercase. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 19:34, 9 March 2022 (UTC)

Shuckle in Pokémon Emerald

I think you misread the trivia : it says the Berry Juice is made unobtainable, but it is in fact due to wild Shuckle holding Oran Berries in Generations 3 and 4 (until HGSS) as said in its article. The fact Shuckle is available or not in Altering Cave doesn't matter. But Safari Zone having wild Shuckle makes it two areas in which you can catch this Pokémon, in Emerald, and if it was holding the Berry Juice, it would've been one hence my edit about it being "one of the only ways". But if this item was intended to be obtainable in this cave thanks to that Pokémon in FRLG specifically, then it should've been specified, instead of just removing my edit and changing nothing. ---- Braviapert 07:50, 28 April 2022 (UTC)

A user keeps adding information that could be considered as wrong in some articles

Hello glik, it may seem a bit insignificant what I want to inform you, especially coming from someone who hasn't done much editing on Bulbapedia, but I've been noticing that a user keeps adding information that could be considered wrong or invalid in these articles:

- https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Dawn_(game) - https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ethan_(game) - https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Kris_(game) - https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Lucas_(game) - https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Lyra_(game) -

I want to apologize beforehand if this isn't the right place to report this, I really looked for a better way to let a staff member know about this but I couldn't find a more proper way to report this other than here. If I'm letting you know this is because it seems that you've already made a clear statement about this issue where you explicitly mentioned that the information shown regarding to the age of some of the characters isn't valid and that the source they quote "doesn't confirm anything" Here is where I came to know about this

The user in question keeps going against your statement, even calling what they seem to think is true as "a fact" without doing a further research. Is it allowed that a user can edit an article even when a staff member has literally denied the information they want to include?

I, myself, also think that what they're trying to add isn't veridicial information and that the source doesn't confirm anything either, in fact, I think that what they're trying to add could be considered as misnformation which also goes against the Speculation Policy.

I'm really sorry if this isn't actually an issue but I thought I'd let you know about this because for me it's not correct to go against a statement from a Staff Member, I'm really looking forward to know anything regarding this subject.

The source in question explicitly mentions that the protagonists prior to Hilbert and Hilda were at least and I quote "10 or 11 year olds."Inkster (talk) 22:08, 3 May 2022 (UTC)
No offence but don't you think that, considering the source has been there for years, the mentioned articles would have had that information on them for years too? Also, whether if the information confirms something or not, it was explicitly denied by glik, who is the Staff Member I want this message get to so I kindly ask you to not involve on this subject until I get a response from glik --Kynn (talk) 00:48, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
Why this piece of information wasn't there years ago is most likely because nobody pointed it out until now. And no other staff member had voiced out what they think about this situation as far as I am aware. Inkster (talk) 00:57, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
"The following interview was originally published in the Januray 2011 edition of Japanes magazine Nintendo Dream" Uhh, yes it was? The source has been out there for over a decade now, what do you mean it wasn't there years ago? Please don't make this thread to be longer than it should be and as far as I'm aware each Staff Member specializes on a particular area so I wouldn't expect the whole Bulbapedia staff be part on something like this - unsigned comment from Kynn (talkcontribs)

Move templates

Hey! Saw that you are updating the templates, so I'll try my luck in asking. Could you create these templates: Template:Learnlist/breed9, Template:learnlist/prevo9null, Template:learnlist/prevof/9 (or make redirects or whatever you deem best). I cannot add the egg moves without the entry template and unfortunately moves that are exclusive to prior evolutions are back so we need them for Gen IX. Thanks! Oneofthosedf (talk) (contribs) 07:15, 18 November 2022 (UTC)

Done glikglak 18:15, 18 November 2022 (UTC)
Thank you. Should we include the tutor moves section on the pages? AFAIK there are no tutors in the game, but that could change with a potential DLC (SwSh DLC moves are notably missing and weren't made into TMs). If so, we'll also need Template:Learnlist/tutor9null. Oneofthosedf (talk) (contribs) 18:17, 18 November 2022 (UTC)
Not making tutor templates til we know there are tutors. glikglak 18:22, 18 November 2022 (UTC)
Makes my job easier, since I don't have those made. So can I delete those sections from the individual pages? Oneofthosedf (talk) (contribs) 18:23, 18 November 2022 (UTC)
Sure glikglak 19:10, 18 November 2022 (UTC)
Hey! Back again requesting a version of the MoveNA that works with Gen 9. Only asking because I don't know what naming convention it should follow. Oneofthosedf (talk) (contribs) 20:27, 19 November 2022 (UTC)

(resetting indent) Just want you to know I've seen this, staff is just figuring out if/when we'll remove old but relevant learnsets. glikglak 16:52, 21 November 2022 (UTC)

National Dex Number Confirmation

You want confirmation? Here's your confirmation:


This is the actual order of the National Pokédex, including Pokémon from Paldea. I can also confirm that it's neither the index number order nor the order used by the Paldea Pokédex. I've been adding these numbers in because I wanted to help in any way possible. So if you guys want to add the numbers instead, then be my guest. - unsigned comment from Sonictron27 (talkcontribs)

You realize neither 52Poké Wiki, us, nor any of our other sister wikis are official, right? You need an official Pokémon source to use the numbers to confirm them. glikglak 03:38, 7 December 2022 (UTC)
I just wanted to be able to help with these articles. So I apologize for being a nuisance. --Sonictron27 (talk) 04:02, 7 December 2022 (UTC)

Update Movehead templates

The Movehead templates should be updated to display 4-digit National Pokédex numbers. In most instances, for Gen IX and LA-introduced Pokemon, it doesn't show the image unless the NatDex number is 1000 of higher. Thanks, PinkYoshiGaming (talk) 22:00, 16 January 2023 (UTC)

Confirmed future sync pairs' Pokémon

Hi, sorry for bothering you. Not sure who I should contact in this cases... but hope you can help.
I'm having a bit of problems with the user Chomper, since he is reverting back my edits on the Sync Pairs list, since he don't want to consider some Pokémon, for personal preference, while I want to use a more "objective" way to consider them.
Hope you can help us. Thanks :)

UNITE infobox edit

Hi, I've edited the color scheme of the Unite infoboxes you created. I hope it's okay with you. I've also used them to create Unite pages. --Oddkidd (talk) 15:58, 5 September 2023 (UTC)

No, that's not okay. Don't touch my stuff. Don't touch other people's stuff. If you want stuff changed, you ask. And you're not making any mainspace pages with the templates while they're in the userspace. glikglak 16:18, 5 September 2023 (UTC)
Your "stuff" needed rework.--Oddkidd (talk) 17:14, 5 September 2023 (UTC)
That's not an excuse. glikglak 18:07, 5 September 2023 (UTC)
It wasn't meant to be an excuse, I was telling you your stuff needed rework, and still does. I can see the effort, but once executed, it looks very lacking. From my side, I was really just trying to help refine it, I wasn't trying to claim it as my own work and it still had your username in it. I didn't know you can't use these outside of user talkpage, I'm fairly new to editing but I'm definitely learning fast. I don't need you to come at me with your strong feelings, I very clearly stated that I hope it is okay with you. My intentions were obviously good, I wasn't trying to be malicious with the whole thing or even claim it as my own. I can say more, but I'm gonna leave it at that, and know this: my message here isn't to try to appease you, I would hope that the only thing you get from it is: fix your "stuff". Thanks and bye.--Oddkidd (talk) 05:11, 6 September 2023 (UTC)
I don't care about credit, I care about you breaking the rules. The rule you were specifically informed of a couple weeks ago. The rule that, when you broke again, had the mildest of repercussions, which you decided was worth having a temper tantrum over. You've been told three times now that you can ask permission. But instead of trying that, you're going out of your way to make more work for yourself. And continue trying to excuse your actions.
Your actions don't imply that you understand you broke a rule and won't do it again. They imply the opposite, that you think breaking the rules is okay if you're just trying to help. It's not. Good intentions don't absolve rule-breaking. It'll lessen repercussions, but it will never make it acceptable. Acknowledge that, try not to do it again.
And if you want help reworking the templates, just ask. glikglak 19:31, 6 September 2023 (UTC)
