  • Creating a userpage is allowed after you've added to the encyclopedia; for more details, see the userspace policy.

Genders

Please refer to the Speculation policy regarding genders. A gender is only confirmed by explicit, verbal confirmation or via the use of attract/cute charm. In certain cases, we go be gender differences, read the policy for more. We do NOT go by behavioral pattern or gender stereotypes. Thank you.--ForceFire 05:40, 8 January 2022 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Also, if you want to edit multiple sections of the page, make sure that you click "edit this page" at the top of the page rather than editing it by section. Thanks! --ForceFire 09:44, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

Partial block

Once again, genders are only confirmed via verbal statements, via the use of Attract/Cute Charm, or (in certain cases) gender differences. Please refer to the Speculation policy regarding genders. We do not base genders off gender stereotypes and behavioral patterns. As this is the second time you have tried to change Buneary's gender, you have been blocked from editing that page for two days.--ForceFire 19:18, 23 January 2022 (UTC)

Please read the speculation policy again, there are certain nuances for gender differences. In Sandy's case, it was introduced before the gender difference was introduced and has not appeared since the female variant appeared, i.e. it needs to appear again in order for its gender to be confirmed via gender differences.--ForceFire 18:51, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
Again, read the speculation policy. Dragonite's gender falls under minor as it concerns something being shorter/longer between genders, which is harder to pinpoint as the animators may make errors (like making the antennae short in one scene and then long in another). Dragonite has no gender difference, don't make one up to fit your opinions. This you final warning regarding genders. If you add another gender that doesn't meet the criteria, then you will receive a block.--ForceFire 13:26, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Block

As you have continued to ignore your talk page message, which also leads me to believe you have not even glanced at it, and continued to add genders without proper confirmation, you have been blocked for a week. As I have stated multiple times, gender is only confirmed via explicit verbal statements, use of Attract or Cute Charm, and in some cases gender differences. Dragonite has no gender difference, you can't just make one up to fit your opinions. Additionally, please read your talk page messages as it would appear you have not read them at all, considering your lack of response to any of the messages. If you disagree with something, you must discuss it on the talk page, do not continually re-add the information you are trying to add. If you return only to do the exact same thing, you will receive a longer block.--ForceFire 13:38, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Goh's Pinsir

Goh was not called a pronoun in the Japanese dub, do not blindly rely on the subs. The word Goh used to refer to Pinsir (yatsu) does not indicate a gender.--ForceFire 05:30, 5 March 2022 (UTC)

Chloe and Parker

Unless there is explicit confirmation that their surnames are Cerise, do not add it as their surnames.--ForceFire 08:40, 28 March 2022 (UTC)

Link templates

Please be sure to use appropriate link templates if necessary. Such as the "p" template for Pokémon species. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:14, 6 April 2022 (UTC)

Sonia (anime)

Sonia has yet to be deemed notable enough for her own anime page so the page you created has been moved to your userpage. Feel free to continue working on it as maybe in the future, she'll be deemed notable enough.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:59, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

VA sources

You need to have a source for your VA additions, don't just assume because it's a similar role. o get a source, ask the voice actor via their social media (if they have any) or email.--ForceFire 05:49, 7 August 2022 (UTC)

Consecutive edits

You've been warned before about making multiple edits to a page, keep this up and you may face being blocked--BigDocFan (talk) 08:21, 14 August 2022 (UTC)
