Eevee brothers

Mikey is actually an eevee brother because at the end of the episode one of them say to him they are truely the eevee brothers. - unsigned comment from Yoster10 (talkcontribs)

I know. But he also has his own page here while his brothers only share a collective page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 23:09, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Ok then fair enough, but dont you think he should be on the page. - unsigned comment from Yoster10 (talkcontribs)

Mikey is mentioned on the page, but it also links to his main article. It's like when a Pokémon has an article. We link to their article, not to their table on their trainer's page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 23:21, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

This is a bit of a wierd question and you will probably say no but do you have any legendaries you are willing to trade for non-legendaries because on monday i am getting the final Pokémon i need to obtain all non-legendaries so i need just 8 legendaries left which are: Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Deoxys, Darkrai, Keldeo, Meloetta and Genesect. - unsigned comment from Yoster10 (talkcontribs)

I don't own a Keldeo, Meloette, or Genesect, and I'm not interested in trading any of my others. Plus I've had issues with wi-fi lately. Sorry. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:21, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

It's ok i was just wondering. Yoster10 13:11, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Orange Islands Who's That Pokemon?

Do you also need me to obtain the images for the English Who's That Pokemon? from the Orange Islands saga? Since I also have that whole box set as well. I am almost done with the Pokemon Master Quest, since I am going to work on the second box set today. --Lady Ariel 17:59, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Sure, that'd be fine. Just be sure to use this for the summary when you upload (and of course change everything accordingly). Thanks again for all your help. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 18:05, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

User Page

On your user page it shows Pokémon in circles at the top how could i do that please if it is ok for me to do. Yoster10 18:33, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

You can use it as a base, but try to add your own unique twist to it. Here's a base code with nothing in it:
{| width="64px" height="64px" align="center" style="{{roundy|80px}}; border: 5px solid #000000; background: #FFFFFF;"  
| style="{{roundy|150px}} background: #FFFFFF;"| [[File:None.png]]

Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 18:39, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Cheers. Yoster10 18:42, 8 January 2012 (UTC) I tried to put in a picture and i put down smaller sizes but when i added the picture this happened.


Do you know how i can make it smaller and take off the rectangles at the bottom and top. Yoster10 19:14, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Those rectangles are your border. I've made the image smaller for you. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 19:26, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

What about the extra space at the bottom can that be taken off by any chance. Yoster10 19:34, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Did you only want one circle? I was under the impression you wanted the whole circle with four Pokémon. In that case, I've edited the code accordingly. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 19:40, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for that you are a big help. Yoster10 19:45, 8 January 2012 (UTC)


When i go onto my watchlist i see numbers such as (+249) and (-59), what does this mean? Yoster10 21:19, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

That's the number of bytes have been added/removed in the edit. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 21:21, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Ok, thank you. Yoster10 21:22, 9 January 2012 (UTC)


I somehow managed to put a welcome template on a user's page instead of their talk page. Since you're an admin, would you mind fixing it for me? --Darth Zekrom 02:03, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

All fixed. Have a nice evening.Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:45, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Template: MftE

Just a minor thing: Trom didn't change his Haunter to a Winter Sawsbuck in the permitted editors list on the page...--SandmanDP 02:34, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

That's because he only did it so it'd match the winter-themed main page back during December. He's still represented by a Haunter. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:37, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Oops, my mistake. I forgot how long it's been since it was updated...--SandmanDP 02:45, 15 January 2012 (UTC)


Just letting you know, because of my less than good spelling, I've given others permission to fix them Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 09:37, 15 January 2012 (UTC)


There was no content on the page because i was creating it, could you please undo your deletion please. if you cannot i will just recreate it and add the content. Yoster10 19:07, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Do not threaten an administrator. By the way, the page was previously here [1] but was redirected over three years ago--SandmanDP 19:11, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

@Yoster: I won't restore it, and if you make it again, I will protect it from creation. If you look at Duplica's page, we can see that Mini-Dit barely has any content in its table. I think that's a tell-tale sign that it's simply not notable enough for its own page. The next time you start an article, give it more substance. Pages with just the infobox and opening sentence will be deleted.
@Sandman: Please don't butt into a conversation you're not a part of, or respond for me. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 19:14, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Other users do it all the time on behalf of the intended user. I was only trying to help. . PS you may wanna protect this too[2]--SandmanDP 19:18, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

I was not being threatening, if you are reffering to where i said 'i will just recreate it and add the content.' i meant that if you are unable to undo the deletion then i would not mind recreating. If i was being threatening then i would of said "if you do not undo your deletion then i will recreate it". I looked at that link and what i already done (including what you did not see) looked better so i suggest that you allow me to be able to do mine instead of that please.Yoster10 19:19, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

It was still said threateningly. Just because you meant it that way doesn't mean the original connotation changed back to your intention--SandmanDP 19:24, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Ok then i phrased it wrong, but that does not mean i am threatening him. Yoster10 19:26, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

@Sandman: That's the user's decision, but if it's on a staff member's page, leave it to the staff member to respond.
@Yoster10: When users use all capital letters, it is seen as shouting, and in turn makes it sound rude. I'll leave it to the anime head to decide if it's notable or not. But considering it doesn't meet the notablility requirements, I doubt it will be made into a page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 19:29, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Mini-Dit actually had a page at one point, but it was deemed unnotable and redirected in November 2008. -- MAGNEDETH 19:32, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

I did not use all capital letters anywhere, i only use capital letters when i am starting a new sentence or writing a name or any other reason because that is proper-English-grammer.- unsigned comment from Yoster10 (talkcontribs)

While that may be true, you basically said "If you don't do what I want I will defy you using alternative methods no matter what you say". That's pretty threatening--SandmanDP 19:55, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
@Yoster10: Case in point.
@Sandman: Sandman, please, this is my talk page. I would really appreciate it if you'd leave the conversation. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:01, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

I never said that in any sort, what i basically said was "if you cannot undo it then i do not mind recreating it." Please just look at what i said carefully because i think you and Jo The Marten have looked at what i said in the wrong way and jumped to conclusion. Yoster10 20:01, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Since you're now in a state of infuriating denial, I will follow Jo's orders and leave this to her--SandmanDP 20:05, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

@Jo The Marten i looked at the link you put and i do not recall putting that in capital letters, if i did then that means i accentually done that because usually when i type the letter 'a' i accentually click the 'Cap Lock' button. Yoster10 20:07, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

@SandmanDP i am not in denial i am just stubborn. Yoster10 20:09, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Fair enough. You changed it, so it seemed you were aware of it at the time. But yeah, it comes down to: Mini-Dit isn't getting a page. Next time, check the notability requirements, and if you're still not sure, ask Kenji-girl. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:11, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Ok then i shall end it then, i think i was drawing a blank then because i really do not remember doing capitals but seeing you have the evidence i will leave you alone then. Sorry for the trouble i have caused you. Yoster10 20:13, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

General Pokemon B/W Question

Do Pokemon B/W games, or any other Pokemon games reset on their own once you have a certain number of hours on a game? I've heard that the maximum time that can be set in a saved file is 999:57. What happens when my game reaches that - does the time just reset, or will my saved game delete itself? Judgement 01:43, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Nope. A few of my games have reached 999:59 and the time just stops. But it doesn't affect the gameplay at all.Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:04, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Thank you Judgement 20:36, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

i'm confused

Hi, I just made my Bulbapedia account, and I went to my homepage and it says you deleted my account. Could you tell me if you did and if so, why? Carson 07:28, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

I didn't delete your account. Crystal Talian accidentally put a welcome template on your userpage instead of your talkpage, and so I deleted your userpage after she fixed her mistake. You should still be able to create your page once you've done some work around the site, so it's not a big deal. You're not in any trouble or anything. Also, your signature should reflect your username in some way so people can immediately tell who they're talking to. For more info see the Signature policy. Have a nice day. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 07:33, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
Okay thanks!

Curiosity Question

Hello. I wan to ask something. Can a regular user (like me) greet a "newcomer"? (sorry I forgot the correct term) If I can, may I?

P.S. if I posted it in the "wrong place", I'll give my apologies (I'm not used with "sophisticated" talkpages like yours :) I say its cool. :) )

--This is Harv13 10:34, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

We prefer that people who welcome new users are constructive users that have been around for a while, since it's likely the new user will go to whoever welcomed them for help and advice. But you fit that category well enough, so I don't see any reason why you can't welcome new users. Go right ahead. Just put {{subst:welcome}} on a new user's talk, or click on it in the toolbar below, and it'll come up with the welcome message. Though just so it's put on the table, if there's someone that registered a while ago, and they haven't been welcomed, make sure they weren't blocked for some reason. We don't welcome users that are blocked indefinitely. Also, I'll answer just about any general question to the best of my abilities, as will the rest of the admins (Junior, regular, senior). There's no need to feel intimidated. With all that in mind, have fun welcoming the new users. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 10:43, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Ah, I see. Thanks for the answer. I'll try to do it once. (when there's one to welcome to. But maybe a little bit later.)

Black Tyranitar

Can I ask why you altered the edit summary for this? There wasnt any sort of copyright infringement involved. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 01:12, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

We're not supposed to link to Serebii or any other unreliable, or unofficial site as reference. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:20, 27 January 2012 (UTC)


Not that you can capture tornadus pre-ending. Somebody did it. Of course you don't know cause you have completed the game.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 09:50, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Would you mind showing some form of proof? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 09:55, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
Never mind, I checked the official source. It says nothing about the pair being post-ending whereas it labels everything else that is post-ending. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 10:02, 27 January 2012 (UTC)


has performed several vandalism-type edits, has not defended himself, and has not discussed his POVs on talk pages. He needs a block longer than 3 months.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 09:05, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

I wouldn't necessarily call his edits "vandal-like" from what I've seen. (Unless I'm missing something.) They just seem misguided, and while they should state their reasonings, I don't think it warrants a three month+ block. Help to drive them in the right direction, and if they disregard these advises, then we can think about a short block. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 09:14, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

You need to upload over the old file instead of simply uploading it as if it's a different file. You have to keep the naming standard for TCG card files. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:48, 29 January 2012 (UTC)


I wrote in AG068 "For the first time in the Pokemon anime, battle is lost due to trainer was unable to fight", you removed this addition.

And in which episode was it? I mean that the trainer is unable to battle, but does not refuse to continue it. Rootaria 15:54, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

I'd say in EP001; Pikachu is incapacitated by the Spearow, leaving Ash with no more Pokémon to use. If not that, then maybe one of the early Team Rocket battles (before they started blasting off), any of the gym battles Ash (or anyone else) lost, or even the Leagues. Needless to say, battles losing by running out of usable Pokémon are fairly common place material. I don't think we should really point it out, anyway. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 16:01, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

It's usual situation when the trainer has left no Pokemon and so couldn't continue the battle. In AG068 Ash was hit by Ember and fell into a swoon although his Pokemon (Taillow) was not hurt. That's why he lose the battle with May and this situation is unusual. What do you think about it?

Rootaria 16:42, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Android Question

Well, as I've been looking around, I haven't been able to find any kind of android app based on the fantastic content on this site. I was wonder, is there an app in development? And if there is, is there any way I might be able to assist with the process? If not, I would be more than happy to volunteer to develop such an app. --Lord Pent 20:30, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

No, I do not believe anyone is making an app for Bulbapedia. If I recall, I think it would be illegal since no one here owns Pokémon? But I could be wrong. If you like, bring it up here and see what someone else says. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:38, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
We were looking into working with the creators of one of the Pokedex apps to create one when Nintendo issued cease and desist notices to the creators of all Pokedex/similar apps. Basically, Nintendo has made their stance clear - they draw the line between fansites and apps. Thus there will not be a Bulbapedia app created for either android or ipod/iphone in the near future. Werdnae (talk) 07:40, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Nimbasa City

Um can I please know why you erased the photo I put? - unsigned comment from MaidensGhost (talkcontribs)

Because cities featured in the main series must have an in-game screenshot in their infobox. Anime screenshots belong in the "In the anime" section. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:25, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Ok thanks for explaining. (ღMaidensGhostღ 04:24, 8 February 2012 (UTC))

How did it happen!

Hi! I'm new to bulbapedia.I recently expanded an article using another article's info and it got deleted.Was I doing something wrong or is someone playing a prank on me?

--Shravs 13:13, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

If you're referring to your addition to International Police, it's because it didn't meet Bulbapedia's quality expectations. Your addition was mostly focused on the character, Looker, and not the International Police as a whole. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 13:17, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

May I know how to put pics,please!

--Shravs (New Bark Gym) 14:27, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Delete Image?

File:Coronet1.png Mt_Coronet_south.png

Guess what image needs deleting? Don't worry! I already checked to see if other pages link to that old file and made the correct revisions. --Wildgoosespeeder 22:40, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Deleted. Though next time, just put a {{delete}} on the image summary. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:50, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
OK then. I'll make sure to place {{delete}} next time. I think I tried using that template once and got a very delayed response. --Wildgoosespeeder 02:04, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Another Pokemon merchandise page?

Would it be alright to make a new one? Got a book today called "The Art of: Pokémon The First Movie". Was wondering if that would be worth making a page on as well? Frozen Fennec 22:00, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Sure. I think any official book is worth a page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:03, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Alright then. Will try to get the cover image of it too. Thanks for permission again. Frozen Fennec 22:04, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
If you know the ISBN code, you should be able to find the book online and get a cover image that way. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:08, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Submit Image

Good evening administrator! I would like to submit an image which is related to All That Glitters is Not Golden!. Specifically it is related to this error:When everyone fled into Keenan's house for the first time, the golden Sudowoodo appeared on the screen for a split second. The golden Sudowoodo wasn't with them at this point. Here is the link:

The bottom right corner is all smudged like someone tried to cover up a watermark, poorly. So get an image without a watermark, then upload it here with all the proper licensing and categorization. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:03, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Sorry I can't upload it due to this:The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups: Bots, Administrators, Bureaucrats, emailconfirmed, Senior Administrators, Editorial Board, Technical staff. Return to Main Page.

P.S. - What is the code for writing in blue text ?

--DJWolfy 20:11, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

I checked. It seems you're not even registered. There are separate registrations between Bulbapedia and the Archives. So just because you have an account on Bulbapedia doesn't mean you have an account on the Archives, and vice versa. While we'd prefer the images weren't cropped just to hide a watermark, it's better than nothing...
Also, <span style="color:blue;">This code will make blue text.</span> This code will make blue text. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:18, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you! Well it seems I can log onto Archives using my Bulbapedia account.Does that mean I am registered on Archives? --DJWolfy. 20:22, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Oh, yes. It's been a looooong time since I registered so it slipped my yeah, it's global. Same can be done with Bulbanews. Also, be sure to link to your page or talk page in your signature. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:31, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Well,I don't have my personal page,but if you would show me a link with all or some of the templates maybe I'll make my personal page,since I don't want it to be plain. --DJWolfy. 20:35, 14 February 2012 (UTC)


Sorry for using my userspace too much. Do you forgive me? LMFS 03:04, 15 February 2012 (UTC) Oh, I am also sorry for all the other stuff I did. I am new (kind of) to Bulbapedia LMFS 03:18, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

His edits

You might want to do something about this user as he keeps on making useless edits despite multiple warnings. PattyMan 20:20, 17 February 2012 (UTC) Can you tell me which user please? LMFS 01:58, 20 February 2012 (UTC)


Hi Jo, I'm coming to you because you're the latest admin who's made an edit on my watchlist. ^-^; SandmanDP is repeatedly reverting edits, and not listening to order, even removing my comments on his talk page and saying that I was spamming and harrasing him. Can you please do something about it? He isn't listening to reason. ^-^; Littlmiget123 16:14, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Jo, she went against the leader of Project Anime and defied intervention to continue the edit war. Vuvu even tried to stop her but obviously was not available. I had every right to revert her for ignoring two talkpages--SandmanDP 16:17, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm killing this argument before it even begins. Drop this for right now, both of you. I'll share this with the other admins later when they get online, and we'll investigate what's going on and reach a consensus. For now, both of you either take a break from the internet, or try to avoid each other. Just please do not get in an argument on my talk page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 16:21, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

"Cooling down"

Not saying your edit summary is involved, because it isn't, but how many times does the newbie have to be bullied before the bullies are finally punished?--SandmanDP 18:03, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

First off: I'm going to answer your question bluntly and honestly, and I don't want to get into an argument with you. If you don't like what I have to say, fine, but you came to me and asked me, so I'm going to be honest. We all clear? Okay.

Gotta Catch 'Em All Event Question

There was over 30 (possibly 40+) Gotta Catch 'Em All events distributed in Japan for the GBA games. I was wondering if there should be separate list dedicated (new page) to just these events (similar to the 10th Anniversary and Jeremy). There was 5 different distributions, with each one containing different Pokémon. Each Pokémon had the OT of フクオカ, オ-サカ, ナゴヤ, サッポロ, トウキョ- or ヨコハマ depending of the Pokémon Center it was obtained from. Do you think a new page should be created just for the Gotta Catch 'Em All events? --Lady Ariel 22:16, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

No. Firstly, you need experience to become an admin. You also can't ask to be an admin. See: this section. Secondly, you came to the wrong person. I can't promote or demote anybody. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 17:54, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon Rumble Blast moves

The thing about Pokémon Rumble Blast moves is that it's not just "Attack. Attack. Attack." but there's position, direction, etc. Plus there is a damage rating in ☆s or s. But yes, I will leave moves like Barrier untouched... ——Poglare

Meowth in Pokémon Apokélypse

I would've asked somebody else, but I couldn't find anybody so I turned to you. Meowth in Pokémon Apokélypse did not have a voice that was shown in the trailer, I would understand why it's on the cast list, but can I add some reference to him not having any speaking lines? Pokedex493 05:16, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

PokéPark 2

Seeing as you are creating and updating articles for that game would you mind writing in the info on the back of the game case [here]. Would be nice. Almost wrote in the Pokémon Puzzle Challenge one but the only image I could find was small and there was camera glare all over it making reading it impossible. :( Frozen Fennec 20:31, 1 March 2012 (UTC)


Asked this on Knji-Girl's page without knowing she's one of the main admins. :( Was wondering if redirects count as edits to the mainspace and if so did I do enough to warrant the use of any edit milestone tags? If I haven't earned them then that is OK with me. Frozen Fennec 04:42, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Eh, they're nice, but not a huge deal. They don't count towards the TCM either. We prefer milestone tags be used for TCM-qualifying edits. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 05:07, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

I just welcomed this new user, Sandman0721, but I have a sneeking suspicion about this user. It's similar to SandmanDP, who we know got into feuds with practically everyone (even me), and was blocked for about 2 months by MAGNEDETH.

important question from me

What is a speculation crackdown? Chomper4 17:17, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

That's the protection reason used when the protection exists to prevent people making an article/adding info before it is officially confirmed. It's often used when we get information from a source which is known to be unreliable, although that isn't the only reason. Werdnae (talk) 20:37, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

User Country

When you added the protection to the User:Country template in February, the same level of protection was accidentally added to a related page, Template:User Country/List of countries, though that page isnt linked to like the tempate is. A Slovakian user wants to change the Slovakian tag I added to something more appropriate, but they are unable to do so because of the protection. Is it possible to unprotect that page, while keeping the template protected? XVuvuzela2010X 12:51, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

I thought that jumping the gun was discouraged on this pedia. But looks like this doesn't apply to admins. --Maxim 10:24, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

It's not jumping any guns. He is going to be a major character throughout the tournament, like Morrison, Tyson, Tobias, and many more. We know this for a fact. Like I said, if you disagree with something, ask before you take action. Additionally, if you don't agree with something someone did, don't be rude about it.

I thought that being a Wiki editor means that you can edit articles WITHOUT consulting everything. --Maxim 11:09, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Just think I should point out that I removed Harrison and Tyson from that template (for some reason, they were in the Rivals section) since they were only around for a small arc of episodes, and never appeared again after that. XVuvuzela2010X 11:15, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
This isn't simply adding or removing content from a page, it was deciding the classification of a character. The style is decided by the Heads of the various fields of the franchise. So yes, you are allowed to edit whatever without having to ask, but if it has to do with something major to a project, you need to bring it up with the Head of that section or project. They are in charge of the movement of that field, and they look over the work that is done and make major decisions. As such, they always have a good reason to do something, and their opinion should be respected. If you disagree, you may bring it up with them (Third time). That's democracy, and before you say it's unfair, this is how most governments work. It's similar to the Cabinet in government being in charge of various fields of the economy. They're in charge of making the big decisions that they feel are best for the economy, and the citizens. If you disagree, you're allowed to voice your opinion to them. But to go against them without due process could get you arrested. I fail to see how this is any different. If you're still confused, then it can't be helped. But I feel I've explained it to the best of my abilities. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 11:53, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

So I can only make 3 edits total to any pages that start with User:then my username? Is there a restriction on talk pages? I was just wondering. Pringles 20:09, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

I think it depends. If you're making personal edits to your talk, like giving it its own style, I think it should count towards userspace edits. But if you're just responding to messages, then no, it shouldn't count. There is sort of a talk page restriction, but it's only if you edit nothing except talk pages for unnecessarily long periods of time. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 23:42, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

On a page? Just change then number: <nowiIki>[[File:None.png|</nowiki>200px]] Before you upload it? You'll need image editing software. Some versions of Paint let you edit size somewhat cleanly, but more expansive ones like Photoshop are better. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:38, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

As you responded to my question to ForceFire, I thought you may be able to help me with something else. You said I need to edit around the site for a bit.

Hi Jo, I was wondering if you knew the name of Bulbapedia's IRC channel? I know there's a direct link to it in the side navbar, but my laptop doesn't seem to recognise irc:// as a web address, and I can't find the name anywhere else. D: Ronan 10:16, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

I know there's one called #bulbagarden, but that is general for the whole of Bulbagarden (The wiki, archives, news, and forums), then there should be #bulbapedia. I can't say for sure how many people will be there though. Not many of our staff use irc. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 10:33, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

If the musketeers are debatable as a quartet, and hence not a trio, then so are the golems. This whole legendary group thing is inconsistent from trios to masters...--Saiph charon 13:41, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

No, the golems are different. There is a trio (Ice, Steel, and Rock) and then a Trio Master (Gigas). It's the exact same with Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres (Trio), and Lugia (Trio Master). The musketeers do not have a set master. However, in some cases, the trio master is part of the trio, such as Rayquaza or Landorus. So some people might consider Cobalion to be the master. But even if that were the case, it would still be debatable on whether they were a trio, or a quartet. Some people exclude Keldeo, and some people include him. Since it's not set in stone, we just avoid the numbers and remain ambiguous by just use the term "Legendary Musketeers". All for one and one for all. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 16:29, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
There is groups of equivalent legendary pokemon (like trios, they have the same amount of similarities and differences, no one sticks out of the group on its own). And there is additional members which are always better in several ways but still closely related to the group(masters, guardians.. fourth members).
Keldeo is not eqvuivalent;
-it has a unique move
-even from the plot perspective, he JOINED the group, and they trained him.
-its an event pokemon (seriously?)
However, Cobalion, Terrakion and Virizion are as perfect of a trio as any tiro before them. Keldeo sticks out. Its not a normal member. Whats not easy to understand about this? Sometimes there simply is no master, they're the musketeers, would it even make any sense for them to get a master? They have an apprentice instead.
On another note since you mentioned it, how can Rayquaza be part of the weather trio, but Regigigas not part of the golem quartet, both are superior to their group and both are strongly related to them. Again, no consistency on these pages.
bulbapedia should evolve fan-terms as the pokemon franchise evolves, not force illogical groupings that worked in the past on new generations--Saiph charon 22:39, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
Keldeo still considered a musketeer. Regigigas and Rayquaza have been confirmed to be masters in various media. In DPPt, you need the golem trio to unlock Gigas just like you need the beasts to unlock Ho-Oh in Crystal. Rayquaza is seen as the balance for Kyogre and Groudon; when they are rampaging, Rayquaza will quell their rage, just like Lugia does to the birds in M02.
In the story, The Three Musketeers, it follows a young man who trains to become a musketeer, our Keldeo. In later books, he officially is a musketeer, so there's no longer a "three". There are strong feelings from both sides on whether they're a trio or a quartet. If M15 provides more information on their relationship, we may make a decision on a more specific group title, but until then we will remain ambiguous. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 23:05, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
If Regigigas and Rayquaza are both masters of a group, then it is illogical that the golems are a trio and the other ones are the weather trio.
It has to be either
-Golem quartet, weather trio
-Golem trio, weather duo, with a superior extra member rescpetively
No one ever denied that they are "masters", I am simply saying that there is a distinct difference between equivalent members of legendaries and the more special additional legendary related to them, hence it would make perfect sense to classify them that way and not turn into an even bigger mess when more generations are added that will again not fit the old specific terms. Will we randomly decide from now on if we consider the additional member as a proper member instead of applying some logic here?
The pokemon musketeers don't follow the actual musketeer story! They are 3 pokemon who rescued other wild pokemon and defended them in times of war. They have been 3 from the beginning. They saved a weak Keldeos life, and decided to train it. Unexpectedly, it had so much potential that it easily became, not just as strong as the trio, but surpassing them.
I wouldn't count on the movie to add anything groundbreaking to the story as its known from the games, especially classification purposes (heck movies seem to have the most random unrelated legends sharing the film at times.). If anything, it will come up with its own stuff to fit a good story for the movie. Just the fact that its an event pokemon alone makes it another league.
Also regarding how you need the trio to unlock their master: You need the 3 musketeers to unlock Keldeos unique move.....--Saiph charon 16:10, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Are you sure that is Gluttony? These are Cilan's words when evaluating Chili and Pansear.

  • "Pansear's a High Temp Pokemon and its ability is Gluttony. Gluttony fits you as well, Chili, so you're a good match."

I think Cilan is just stating how both of them eat when they're angry, as a glutton is someone who eats, even when they aren't hungry. I suspect he's just using fancy words to pepper up his evaluation. Another point I'd like to point out is that nothing was said about Pansear gaining energy from eating the apples. By saying that Pansear has Gluttony by eating a lot would also be like saying May's Wurmple had the ability as well. - unsigned comment from Littlmiget123 (talkcontribs)

"Pansear's a High Temp Pokemon and its ability is Gluttony. Gluttony fits you as well, Chili, so you're a good match."
He's flat out talking about Chili's Pansear, because he goes on to talk about its moves. He's stating that Pansear's ability matches Chili's personality. There's no arguing with that. As for the energy thing, eh, it's what the game says. Plus, he had just lost a match, but felt fine after eating. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:36, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
I'm not denying its ability is Gluttony. He flat out says it. XD I apologize for not being clear; I don't think it should be added onto the page itself. It was eating the apples out of frustration, like Chili was eating the donuts. It's more like when Burgundy said that Sewaddle's ability was Swarm, but didn't use it. Littlmiget123 01:45, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
What is your response? (I can't say this without sounding rude, and I'm not trying to be; I apologize in advanced. XD) Littlmiget123 23:41, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Like I said earlier, Pansear was knocked out a few scenes prior, but he was fine after eating. It's not out of the ordinary to say he restored his health by eating without medical attention. I think in some ways, the anime incorporates abilities into a Pokémon's personality. So while Pansear might be a glutton, in this case it's also the ability Gluttony being activated. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 23:49, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
That may be true, but games=/=anime. In a handful of Gym Battles, and even in the Pokemon League, Ash's Pikachu has been knocked out of the match, and while it was still knocked out of the match, it still was able to get up and cheer for Ash, and it wasn't out of commission exactly. And a lot of the time, back in the first seasons, when they would come across a wild Pokemon, Brock would usually give it Pokemon food to help it get better. But that doesn't mean that it is Gluttony. For example, the hurt Stantler in the Johto region. Littlmiget123 02:11, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
And Pokémon that fly don't always know Fly, and Pokémon that swim don't always know Surf. But the fact that Cilan directly identified it as having Gluttony supports its eating behavior in that scene as being the use of its ability. Stantler also received medical help from a potion.

Since it was so close together and Cilan even bothered to mention the Ability (in both languages I might add) and not "Your Pansear is a glutton", I think in this situation it's alright personally. --ケンジガール 03:47, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
Ah, very well then. I guess I'll add it as Gluttony then. ^-^ Littlmiget123 19:28, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Wondering if you knew anything about this...

So lately, when I was looking at Fly I saw in the Hiori's Drifblim image a Mandibuzz. But when I clicked on it, it entered the actual image. Do you know what's going on, cause this is strange?--Lucario985 Chowolun 01:14, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

I've checked the page history, image history, etc. and I don't see where it was ever a Mandibuzz. There aren't even any Mandibuzz listed as knowing Fly. So I don't know what you're talking about. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:26, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Alright, it's probably just my crazy iPad.--Lucario985Chowolun 01:31, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Also, it was a sprite.


On Serebii, it leaked the new CoroCoro, with full art of the Kami Trio, and a bunch of other stuff. Is this real? プリングルズ/品客薯片/ప్రింగిల్స్ 03:36, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

There's also art for a kid catching the new Kami Trio using the AR scanner app, or whatever, and a bunch of old Gym Leaders. And new art of Cheren, Bianca, & N. Bianca got glasses and Cheren doesn't have his anymore... Can you read any of it? プリングルズ/品客薯片/ప్రింగిల్స్ 03:38, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok, there's a lot of stuff, and I'm not sure if it's even real (it probably is) but why did they get scans before anyone else? プリングルズ/品客薯片/ప్రింగిల్స్ 03:43, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Dude. We know. Stop spamming Jo's talk page. -- MAGNEDETH 03:47, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Important question

At the game, Pokémon Diamond, I'm trying to erase a file from an earlier user, but it doesn't work yet. What can I do? I want to start a new game off course and that doesn't work yet :( --Station7 20:56, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

The Platinum game manual says Up + B + Select. I imagine it's the same for DP. Werdnae (talk) 21:08, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. It worked. Sorry if I spammed your talk page. But you're right. That's the way it works. --Station7 22:41, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

A Question

Why have you sent me a message saying that all of my trivia i have put on is pointless? it isnt and people might want to know it. - unsigned comment from Tepiggy (talkcontribs)

I've looked through those contributions myself and I personally agree with Jo. Nobody cares about False Swipe's PP and Power being the same and those silly Splash rumors, they are not important. Sign your comments next time with ~~~~ too. Sneaking from page to page... It's the page-editing purple ghost... Gengarzilla! 16:41, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
It really wasn't very interesting, not to mention you can see on the page that the PP and Power is the same. It's the same reason we don't condone 99% of sprite trivia. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 18:29, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

150 Pokemon

I just saw your comments to my edit to EP65. My response to this is Brock never knew of Mewtwo or Mew but he does know of pokemon like Snubull, etc. I know they weren't created yet but how would he have known about Togepi not being one of the originals instead of just another pokemon. He also says "People used to say there was only 150 pokemon." CliveKoopa 08:53, 17 May 2012 (UTC) CliveKoopa

Please use the preview button more often so I don't have to see the new message box three times for the same message. Thanks. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 09:02, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Okay I will, sorry about my earlier mistake. I originally posted my message to the wrong person so I accidentally pasted two headings here. Next time, I'll use the preview button. CliveKoopa 09:11, 17 May 2012 (UTC) CliveKoopa

Hilbert, Hilga

Black2 is Hilbert and White2 is Hilga. My proof: look on http://www.Poké it says that it happens two years later. It must be Hilbert and Hilga. LMFS 06:16, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Firstly, her name's Hilda, not Hilga. Second, no. It's not them. The fact that the game occurs two years later is irrelevant. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 06:28, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

'Kay, Thanks. LMFS 19:37, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Stolen content

The third paragraph of this ([3]) is basically copy-pasted from this page. (Sorry if I'm bothering you... just discovered that randomly and wasn't sure who to tell.) —Team Magma Zangoose ⚡ 04:10, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

thank you and sorry about before

I caught the awkward sentence a little too late, I was just about to fix it but you did it for me. Thanks and sorry about before. Also sorry I didn't read your warning on the template thingy, and for a while I was stealing it for my user page, so sorry about that too. The Wiki code stuff is so hard for me, 90% of it I have to copy paste from other articles and pages just so I get it right. Yamitora1 22:37, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Yeah. I taught myself HTML by trial and error over the course of 4 years. I get sensitive when I work hard on something like that, and someone just takes it from me. Just for the record, you could have approached me yourself as opposed to always reporting me to KG. I'm a member of staff. Users are supposed to be able to approach me. Not to mention, the name-calling on SnorlaxMonster's talk page wasn't necessary either. :/ It really seemed like you were just treating me like I was being a bully when that was never my intention. I don't like being treated like a villain. I hope this clears up a few things. I just thought I'd explain my side. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:46, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
Well I'm working on cation based on the horror stories I've heard/read about when it wikis, forums and other places with moderators and average joes butting heads. its the internet, power often makes people bullies and idiots just like the English language can cause more misunderstandings then they fix. I am not a great wordsmith, and I often cause misunderstandings when I try to express myself in type. It's because of that, and my somewhat psychotic personality that I guarantee you that if this all happened when Bulbapedia first opened, the outcome would be a lot different and I'd likely be blocked due to a number of age, rank and maturity factors. I went to Kenji because of their (what I assume) seniority plus as I indicated to SnorlaxMonster, I doubt me calling you out would have been a smart move. I'm trying to play it safe, so if I have to go to others to do it, I will. Direct confrontation won't end well from my experience and what I've learned from other's. Slow, steady, silent and/or sneaky works best for me so I don't get myself into drama.
as for the name calling, althoguht I don't remember directly calling you anything, I still apologize. I mean I could probably look, but I rather just apologize and drop the matter like a hot coal or an prom night dumpster baby.
Really in the end, everything was just because of misunderstandings that piled up...I blame the English language. I speak it, I write it but I don't understand it. Yamitora1 23:39, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
That's the thing: You can read text and what not, but you can't always read tones. Most of the people here know that I'm not a cruel person, so while you thought I was being rude, they were all, "Whaaa...?" And on SM's talk, you said I was acting like Simon Cowell. Which I don't disagree with, I like Simon Cowell, and I do tend to be blunt and give my honest opinion on things. But it was still odd.
Despite all your experience, this place isn't nearly as bad. Assume good faith, keep a level head, and people will treat you with respect. But lose your head, and people will likely fight back. We have a good team of staff nowadays, and no one on the team is very power-hungry. We try to treat everyone with respect, as long as they respect us in return that is.

Kami Trio article The Kami trio article needs to be outfitted with the new Reijuu info that the Forme Differences article recently received. I'd do it but I've had enough of editing them re-writing their physiology and origin entries. @[email protected] anyways I thought I should pass on the job to someone who, if not able to do it themselves could find someone who can...anyways cheers...i think is the term? Yamitora1 02:32, 27 May 2012 (UTC)


has edited tournament sections yet again, and is not providing VA sources, but guessing by ear. Would you kindly speak to him again?--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 22:56, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Don't mean to get involved in this but should the VA stuff of his get reverted? PattyMan 23:06, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes please. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 23:07, 30 May 2012 (UTC)


We don't need the artwork for Sabrina on her page twice, right? Then why do Bianca and Cheren have their B2W2 artwork twice? プリングルズ/品客薯片/ప్రింగిల్స్ 03:04, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Was likely just a mistake. They shouldn't be there. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 03:26, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
