Welcome to Bulbapedia, Kogoro!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon or other media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • Image uploading is done on Bulbagarden Archives, a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Kogoro/1/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem, can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! Takoto 17:21, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Since the other 3 edits are deleted, they don't count. Just drop the whole thing. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 22:41, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Nice work

Looks like you're taking over my job. I would usually redirect stuff once in a while. What you're doing reminds me of the time I uploaded all the Platinum was not fun...very boring. So good luck! :) - unsigned comment from Tavisource (talkcontribs)

Hey...I don't know why, but whenever I'm on Bulbapedia, I forget to sign, but when I'm e-mailing my friends, for some reason I make the four little tides for no reason...argh. And this time, I remembered! YAY!--Tavisource 02:50, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
You could e-mail me's much more convenient for me. And by the way, I had turned of PM...I don't know why...but I just never saw the need for e-mail me if you could please.--Tavisource 04:44, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Read e-mail, I finished Red. Are you on my friend list yet? Go to my user page or talk page and click the link in the orange message box at the top. Bayby G (the section above) and Takoto (the one who welcomed you) are also on it, along with many join the group.~--Tavisource 06:16, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Hope you like it...I gotta go now, so I'll talk to you later.--Tavisource 06:23, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm back, I was over at Bulbagarden forums. But now I gotta go bed. By the way, I see you are welcoming some people. I remember when my Diamaster and I welcomed MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY users and we got in trouble by the founder of Bulbapedia.--Tavisource 06:57, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for fixing up the image for the male Tuber. I really owe it to you. ht14 22:42, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

RE: Blanking Pages

lol i was bored.- unsigned comment from Gallade25 (talkcontribs)

lol was bored so i chose a random page to blank.- unsigned comment from Gallade25 (talkcontribs)

g template

That one does not have to be used every time. Most of the time, using [[Pokémon anime]] loks so much better in the coding than the g template. It is harder to deal with for new users and it is only supposed to be used when linking to games. It makes it harder to notice what the page is saying when the g template is used, so don't edit pages just to change this template because it is unneccesary and has negative draw-backs. MoldyOrange 00:33, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Party table

All of those pages actually do need the party table for the Pokémon Stadium games. I set up an example on Brock and I want you to finish with Brock and the rest of the Gym Leaders because you did a very good job with the main games on that page. MoldyOrange 23:12, 15 October 2008 (UTC)


Thanks! MoldyOrange 23:02, 16 October 2008 (UTC)


Thanks I did it!!!! :)- unsigned comment from Pika Blue (talkcontribs)

Moves not in the Pokémon games

There is alot of moves missing from that list. One that I can think of on the top of my head is "Singe"...does that not belong? I just thought you should carry out the discussion for me, because I gotta go to bed. see ya.--Tavisource 06:15, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

I have to admit, hell if I know ^_^; Though since it's a list, I would have to assume it would at least deserve a mention. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 06:17, 21 October 2008 (UTC)


Hello! I'm new to Bulbapedia and I want help! How can I do a page with a character I have made up? Can anyone post me a link?!!! GarchompLover 16:06, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Ash's Turtwig evolves!!!!

Ash's Turtwig will evolve in DP100, in a battle against Paul's Honchkrow! I have evidence! Check on Youtube and type in "DP100 priview"!--GarchompLover 12:45, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Yes we KNOW it evolves! We're not stupid. We have a policy that we need to wait until an episode airs before we announce anything. It doesn't matter how much evidence you have. It techincally isn't evolved until this Thursday night in Japan. Got it? --ケンジガール 00:54, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
Um... Did you really have to yell at the guy about this on my talk page? - Kogoro | Talk to me | 09:02, 29 October 2008 (UTC)


OK, OK!!! DON'T BE SO MEAN I JUST TRIED TO HELP! NOT MY FAULT YOU KNOW! - unsigned comment from GarchompLover (talkcontribs)

Um... Why are you apologizing on my talk page? If you really need to, could you possibly do so on Kenji-girl's? She's the one who yelled at you, not me... Oh yea, and sign your messages... - Kogoro | Talk to me | 09:02, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Oh sorry, umm didn't meen to. I just yelled, I didn't think, sorry:(--GarchompLover 10:49, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Card scans

Wow, pretty talk page! Anyways, I just wanted to thank you for all those scans you've uploaded, that helps us immensely. Quick question regarding them - would it be alright if I tried to increase the quality a little bit? I've just got Adobe Photoshop (an old version, CS1 I think) and I'm dying to try it out. =D Cipher (Talk) 11:45, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, and no problem, I'm enjoying adding all these scans, I just wish I wasn't on Dial-Up so I could get sets done much faster. If you would like to try increasing their quality in Photoshop, go right ahead. I'm actually using Photoshop CS2 with my scanner to scan them! - Kogoro | Talk to me | 15:33, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Something else, before I forget - would you maybe be able to save your scans as JPGs rather than PNGs? PNG scans are massive, often twice as big as JPG scans, even though they're the same quality (if you save JPGs as the highest quality). If you could, cheers much. If not, don't worry about it. =) Cipher (Talk) 19:18, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Funny thing is, I tried to save them as .jpg (at 100% quality) and each scan had the exact same detail but each one was over 1MB in size! .png has actually become my friend with these, thanks to being half the byte-size. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 19:21, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Ouch, 1MB?! Damn, that's painful...PNG's definitely the best route then, unless you fancy trying to kill the server. Wouldn't recommend it. =P Cipher (Talk) 19:29, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Yes, 1MB! (Or 1.32MB to be precise...) I definitely don't fancy killing the servers, OR killing my puny little Dial-Up Connection... While uploading the remainder of Diamond & Pearl: Mysterious Treasures, I killed my Dial-Up and had to take a few minutes to reconnect so I could finish the set. The painful part was, I was about 3/4 done uploading & adding the images... - Kogoro | Talk to me | 19:33, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
That really sucks. When we had dial-up it always kept shutting off on us, so we just switched. It just got so annoying, you couldn't be online for five minutes without it going "I'm bored, so I'm going to chop your connection and make you run around like headless chickens to cheer me up". Cipher (Talk) 19:45, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Episode image

The episode could be aired, but if the image spoils the episode, it cannot stay there. --Nick., something to say? 03:11, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

So, then why did our Editor-in-Chief, TTEchidna leave the image in the code, albeit hidden when he protected it until the episode's air date? - Kogoro | Talk to me | 03:12, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Hm, I swear that episode was protected due to the Grotle stuff, but I can't seem to see it in there on a protect... Anyhoo, TTE did edit it on the 30th and did leave the image. I'd have to say if he didn't remove it, it should be fine to keep there. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 03:18, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
I left a message to TTE, so I'm waiting for the answer. --Nick., something to say? 03:48, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Secret Wonders, Legends Awakened

Hiya, just a quick question - are you planning on scanning-in any Secret Wonders or Legends Awakened cards? I'm asking 'cos I'm planning on scanning SW in tomorrow in my free time, and on uploading Japanese card images for LA card articles. In either case, if you're scanning in for either, let me know. When it comes to LA, I can easily not upload the Japanese images, because English card scans are preferred, but in the case of, I've over 100 to scan in, which is gonna pretty much fill up the set, so I don't know what'll be left without an image afterward. Cheers, Cipher (Talk) 21:21, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Well, if you're still busy with DP, I'd love to be able to do SW, if that's alright? And as for LA, sure, I can hold off for as long as needs be. =) Cipher (Talk) 21:29, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Brilliant, I'll let you know if there are any gaps left once I've scanned everything in tomorrow. Cheers much! Cipher (Talk) 21:35, 5 November 2008 (UTC)


You used {{User No Mudkip}} on that dude's page, but originally, the text said "this user does leik Mudkipz," so it would have been more appropriate to use {{User Mudkip}}. Just letting you know. --((Marton imos)) 18:15, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Oh bugger... I just saw the colouring and noticed it was the colours of {{User No Mudkip}} >_< *kicks self* - Kogoro | Talk to me | 18:17, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Don't forget... remove the images you add from User:Politoed666/The List. --ニョロトノ666 04:12, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

I have been. I tend to add 12-16 at a time before removing them ^_^ (Unless I happen to have less than that many that are on the list) - Kogoro | Talk to me | 04:14, 9 November 2008 (UTC)


I was trying to find someone who I could nominate for adminship this month, and I looked at your contributions, and saw that you have a lot of great contributions. Plus, you meet the 6-month requirement, so lemme ask you: Would you like me to nominate you for adminship? Chocolate 14:29, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

While you would be a commendable candidate, Kogoro, I have to say, Chocoboy, that randomly going around and trying to find someone to nominate... not too good. Focus on the work, and if someone makes a lot of good contribs, then you should nominate them after seeing them in action.
Someone's doing a lot of good on RC? Check their contribs. Those are good, then check their joining date/first contrib date. That checks out, nominate them. Just... don't go searching through users for someone to nominate this month. I hate having to constantly monitor the page in case a nomination expires... TTEchidna 21:05, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Two things

1) Do you really have a shiny Eevee? I would kill for it!

2) and is all the text on this page small on purpose?--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
1. Yes, I do have a shiny Eevee. It almost killed me when I was breeding for it.
2. The text shouldn't be any smaller than a normal article. Your browser might have a problem with the code in the border template. Or a problem with the code from the archives/byte-size page. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 17:20, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
1) lucky. I would trade you anything for it, but im sure you wouldnt trade it away.
2) yeah, it was just internet explorer. The look changed from IE to FF to Safari--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Actually, it seems to be a different font. TTEchidna 00:42, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
It is, the font that the template applies is Verdana. However, the size should be nearly identical to the text on articles. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 00:48, 11 November 2008 (UTC)


Do you have AIM, by any chance? --ニョロトノ666 03:03, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Sadly, no. Only MSN - Kogoro | Talk to me | 03:08, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Avoiding redirects

Please do not change the links to the Pokémon on the episode lists. As stated in the manual of style, we keep the Pokémon that way to avoid spoiler prevention. I'm aware that they are redirects, but I got yelled at once for doing that, so since then I've just had it list the Pokémon as it appeared in the episode. --PAK Man Talk 05:45, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Alrighty, I don't see the reason though. We do have a visible Spoiler Warning right after the start section of the episode articles. But, if it's the way it is, then it's the way it is ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me | 05:47, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
It's not just that, but it's a giant pain to go through every episode the Pokémon appeared in previously to update it for consistency-- imagine what we'd have to do for Ash's Squirtle if it evolved. TTEchidna 03:20, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
I understand that. It does sound like a pain, though I'd actually be more than willing to go through and so stuff like that. I actually like to do anything that could be considered an annoying & long task when I need a break from uploading card images... ^_^; - Kogoro | Talk to me - 05:28, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Eh, still. I think it's best to leave it linking to the evolution stage it was in the episode. It's not like any evolutionary level disambiguation needs to take place for any main character's Pokémon... closest we come is Misty's Staryu and Starmie... TTEchidna 07:53, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Works for me. If at any time it may be best to change it to link to the most current evolutionary stage, I'd just need a shout and I'd work on it ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me - 07:56, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Nah... but we do need a project done on many episode pages. TTEchidna 07:57, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
I noticed the small, and sometimes lack of synopsis for episodes. If I had any of the episodes on VHS or DVD I'd try to write up some for the articles, but I haven't been able to get any Pokémon Home Video other than the Movies. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 08:03, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, that too... mostly I was talking about changing "X is episode # of series" to "X is the #th episode of the Y series and the Zth episode of the Pokémon anime". You do it by substing User:TTEchidna/epnum in and putting the parameters of epicode (EP, AG, DP) and epnum (just the number) in. Yyyyyep. TTEchidna 08:07, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
I made a little while ago a list about the episodes with problematic synopses. See User:UltimateSephiroth/Anime episodes with missing or partial synopses, and do not hesitate to update the list if necessary. UltimateSephiroth (user · talk · contrib) 08:25, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Seems like it's, um, not there. TTEchidna 08:28, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Oh, I'm just now on my mobile phone so I can't use more than one page at once. I edited the link, is it now the correct one? UltimateSephiroth (user · talk · contrib) 08:35, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Still no... I found it. TTEchidna 08:37, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Stormfront images

Random question, probably, but I'm looking at the Stormfront scans you're uploading and they're amazing quality. What type of scanner do you use? I'm looking to get my own, as I have to use the scanner in the downstairs computer room, which isn't ideal. Cipher (Talk) 17:43, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm using a Canon ImageCLASS MF3110, it's a scanner, photocopier & printer all in one ^_^ I also use Photoshop for importing through the scanner. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 17:46, 12 November 2008 (UTC)


Is this ok? Evee44 | Talk Page

Yep, fits completely within the policy ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me - 12:46, 16 November 2008 (UTC)


you mean like ArceusEX. dont ever mention him. he was my friend- unsigned comment from Timer (talkcontribs)

That's the template that everyone who kills off any TPCs gets--The Kkllnnator blastoise 21:34, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

LoT Basic Pokémon Pic

Where should it go then?--KukiTalk 19:20, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Well, it should be uploaded to the Archives. Then added properly in a thumbnail box. Adding images to articles that way isn't allowed. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 19:23, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Then should I email it to you? MN unfairly blocked me and then threatened me--KukiTalk 19:24, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

If you can find a frame from The Legend of Thunder without wording all over the image, you can just give me a link to the image here on my talk page. With the wording all over, the image isn't of enough quality for me to feel right using on an article. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 19:26, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Ok, Ok

Okay, i'll stop making user-things. jeez. Uipoke 22:52, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

If Japanese tcg articles have information about the movie's release in Japan dealing with the movie, leave the Japanese link, please. MaverickNate 03:07, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
Yep, will do. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 03:07, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Pokémon order in move learnsets

Hey, I saw you on RC and thought you might be around, so I figured I'd ask you first: what order should the list of Pokémon be in the learnset sections on move pages? A couple months ago, Chocolate reordered a number of pages to group families together, but the MoS indicates most Pokémon lists should be in National Dex order. Is that true? — Laoris (Blah) 17:52, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

National Pokédex order, definitely. (If I remember right, Chocolate got in a bit of trouble for re-ordering the ones that he did) Ordering by evolution family really poses problems when new Pokémon & new evolutions are introduced. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 17:57, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! I already started changing some of the pages back, but I wanted to get some confirmation before I went further. — Laoris (Blah) 18:01, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Great Encounters scans

Hiya, I remember you uploaded a dozen or so scans from Great Encounters a while ago - just wondering if you had any more? Some of the ones we have are fairly small but I don't have 'em. If I give you a list, can you let me know which ones you can scan in? Cheers, Cipher (Talk) 17:45, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

If you give me a list I can see what I can do. I'll make no promises though. Sadly, Great Encounters is one of the two sets I have been unable to find. But I did find a couple of packs from that set when I had uploaded those few scans. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 17:52, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
No problem if you can't, no worries at all. =) The cards are: Blaziken; both Darkrai; Togekiss; Altaria; Beedrill; Mawile; Slowking; Arbok; Granbull; Unown G; Caterpie; Felicity's Drawing; Darkrai LV.X; Palkia LV.X. Cipher (Talk) 18:11, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Nope, don't see any of those names in these packs... I'm going to see about trying to get a few more Great Encounters packs tonight though. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 18:16, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Alright, no probs. =) Cipher (Talk) 18:22, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

But you talked to me that time on Aim, when there was a group of us, we were all in the same IM, you seemed really friendly, and I thought we got on well. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010


Why'd you block me, I was calm, I just wanted people to leave me alone. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

You were far from being calm. A user asked you if he could use the formatting on your talk page and you exploded on him! All caps & multiple exclamation marks is not the way to respond to someone innocently asking a question. In the future, don't use all caps & multiple exclamation marks (as it is often seen as an expression of anger), and don't allow problems occurring with others affect how you respond to people who aren't part of it. Also, please, please, please, sign with four tildes instead of three, the timestamp is your friend. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 22:51, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

vandalizing a page is personal preference then. 4 is part of the policy. -- MAGNEDETH 02:45, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
I was just simply talking about the tildes, that's all...all the other stuff is true... ht14 02:49, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I couldn't say it earlier, but CONGRATS for being admin (yes, I know, I'm very late...but I have reasons). I'm so glad you made it as tell the truth, voting for you actually lead to other things that led to me getting grounded...but now that you're admin, I guess it's worth it, isn't it?--Tavisource 00:40, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Tavi. Sorry about you getting grounded over it, though what happened off-site shouldn't have happened... Again, thanks ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me - 00:53, 11 December 2008 (UTC)


Hey Kogoro, I noticed you deleted Template:Small, which kinda sucks since I'd already used it... quite a large number of times :S But yea it's just that I found typing the small tags over and over again sooo damn annoying that I just had to come up with some sort of shortcut. Unless there happens to be a pre-existing shortcut already? And don't say copy and paste, please >_> xD Because I was planning on extending the template further so that you could use the same template to do multiple small tags at once, which I can tell you would be mighty convenient. I mean, is it really so unecessary that I just CANNOT keep it at all? :P Trust me, it would help. It's not really taking up that much space anyway :]

Oh, and gratz on the adminage! S1tHSL4y3r 06:53, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Zhen once told me it'd be useless to make a template for such a little amount of coding. It's just not needed. This was after I had myself done so... TTEchidna 07:04, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Hmm... I suppose. Though it would save some time... Also, the amount of EXP gained from Pokémon battles can actually be useful to people. Why delete them? It took some work to obtain them >_> ~ S1tHSL4y3r 07:12, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Ah, my bad I see why you did so now, as EXP yield can be worked out. Btw, I'm gonna be workin with TTE to get a self-calculating EXP column up.     -–<×vVvvv τλικ to ς1tHςι3r ^^vVv×>–- 08:19, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Unown template

Thanks for fixing it. Sorry I couldn't get back faster. I had forgotten to change Arceus's mod 18 to mod 28. Then, when I made the Gen III one, I copied out the on I had made right so that one didn't screw up. Thanks again.--MisterE13 00:36, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Your Sprite

What program/website did you use to make that sprite? I want to make something like that. - unsigned comment from GuyNamedSean (talkcontribs)

Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe ImageReady. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 01:42, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Where can I get a Blue sprite? GuyNamedSean 01:49, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Try Blue's article perhaps? - Kogoro | Talk to me - 01:50, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
I just used Microsoft-Paint to edit a Blue sprite, but... *sigh* this makes me feel dumb, how do I upload it? *big, long sigh* Yep, that made me feel stupid...
One more question, how do I change the way the signiture looks, and add colors to it? GuyNamedSean 05:06, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
  1. To upload it, you need to use the Bulbagarden Archives, or a image host like photobucket, tinypic, or imageshack (the latter three are perferred. However, if you wish to upload it to the Archives, remember to license the image as a Personal image. Oh, and currently, there's a problem with the Archives, and nobody can upload anything.
  2. To change yous signature, check your preferences, then in the text box beside Signature: put in the coding. Remember to also check off the box labeled Raw signatures. To test out different coding, just use the Sandbox link I have just provided. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 05:24, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

And the wall came tumbling down!

Thanks for your work on the new welcome template. --((Marton imos)) 21:50, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

We heard the order from the whims of the masses, "Tear down this wall!" was their cry. Soon, the wall came down! But not from the efforts of one, but from the efforts of many individuals. - Thank you. I'm glad to see that the text wall is no more, and that the work done by all the people who wanted it to be changed was not for nothing ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me - 22:09, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Hey Mrs. Admin...

Should I be getting emails from banned users? Right now, I am being asked to fix party templates, but before, I was asked to upload images. So... should this be going on? The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 02:29, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Hm... His e-mail ability has been blocked, so you shouldn't be getting e-mails from him through the special page. Want to forward me the message so I can try dealing with this? - Kogoro | Talk to me - 02:32, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Phione/Manaphy evobox

Hey, there was discussion of one being required on Manaphy's talk page so I made one: Template:evobox/1baby/noevolve. Granted, there seemed to be lots of variables that I had no idea what to do with so some tinkering might be required. Also, I think that it's pretty clear that Phione doesn't evolve into Manaphy but, if you think it needs more, a footnote could be added.--MisterE13 14:46, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

I just checked the template out, and tested it on Phione's page. I don't see anything glitching up, so everything seems to be working. And I agree that it is a good idea to show that Phione do come from breeding Manaphy, but do not evolve into it. Before anyone should go adding it, I'll ask some opinions of the other admins, and see how it flies ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me - 23:44, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi Kogoro, do you know where the code for the clock seen above can be found? --Bulbapedian - Talk 22:55, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

It's in the main monobook.js file. However, to use/modify, you would need to ask the creator of it first. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 22:58, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
It's too hard to find. If you would, could you find the precise coding that creates the clock at the top? I couldn't find it for myself. --Bulbapedian - Talk 23:02, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Congratulations! For your outstanding service to Bulbapedia you have been awarded the Golden Bulbasaur Award for December, 2008 by the Bulbapedia editorial board!

Please place this template onto your userpage by putting {{User Award|GoldBulba|December, 2008}} among your userboxes.

You reverted my edit without any justification. BUT I AM RIGHT! "Pokemon Daisuki Club" is japanese name for Pokémon Fan Club in the GAME WORLD!

And again

And still you insist you're right. Okay, I'm nicer this time as I don't want to be banned again (though it's sad that user relations are now more important than contributions on Bulbapedia). You keep reverting my edits without any good justification. You do this just because you want to. But it's me who is right. I played Japanese versions of Pokemon and I know better what's the Pokéfan's name derived from. I really don't see how in the earth could they be related to some real-life club. You may not like me, but I am a reliable person. --Maxim 16:42, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

They're probably cooked up by the owners of the site. Doesn't look like Sugimori to me. ΘρtιmαtumTalk 11:17, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
Many images come from users taking them themselves (Screencapping, ripping from games, etc.) many also come from other sources with permission granted by whoever runs the site they were obtained from. Then there's the tiny number that fall into stolen images and those should be found, alerted to an administrator and then removed if they truly are jacked from another site. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 11:20, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

May you unprotect Looker? Really, there is no further reason to have this page protected (the English name is already revealed) and it's manga section really needs to be expanded. I won't do it (because I don't have a neccessary volume of Pokemon DP) but someone else may do it. I suggest unprotecting. --Maxim 10:21, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

How is Template:STAB a lazyness template? If it is, so is {{Ash}}. 0° 23:59, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

TTEchidna has deemed it a lazyness template. It's just as easy to link to STAB in this case. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 00:01, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Then why do we have the Ash template? It's the same idea. 0° 00:02, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Take it up with TTE if you have a problem. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 00:03, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Ash is obviously much more significant than STAB. I mean, I believe it's on basically every episode article and character of the day article.... And maybe even the article of main characters and recurring characters too. STAB, well... most are already linked as [[Same-type attack bonus|STAB]], so it's simpler to fix all the other ones rather than use a template for everything. ~ overgrownsol 00:04, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
We have established that Ash was not a laziness template, because it is the main character of the entire anime. Stab is lazy though. MaverickNate 00:06, 13 February 2009 (UTC)


This is pikawitchu

I'm so totally sorry about that editing thing, I never even checked my talk page. I accept the loss of priveleges. Please forgive me! :( - unsigned comment from pikawitchu (talkcontribs)

Well, remember next time to keep your userspace editing to a minimum, and make more contributions to the mainspace instead. When you receive your privileges back, show us that you can use them responsibly, and everything should be fine. And of course remember to always check your talk page when that little "You have new messages" banner appears (Just be weary of people that put fake versions on their userpages...) - Kogoro | Talk to me - 19:48, 24 February 2009 (UTC)


Can you help me? I was just wondering, you know how we're supposed to try and expand stubs? Well how do you really do that. Just in case so that in the future if I know information on articles that are stubs. Pikawitchu 18:20, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

To expand a stub, mainly you need to add true, relevant, notable, and non-opinionated information into stub-class articles. Remember to follow the Manual of style and all other policies when adding information to articles, be they stubs, or normal-sized articles, and you shouldn't have too many issues. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 19:05, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey Kogoro, I have a card that's not on here what do i do? - unsigned comment from Pikawitchu (talkcontribs)

Do you mean you have a card that doesn't have a page, or a card that doesn't have an image yet? - Kogoro | Talk to me - 19:26, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Page Pikawitchu 19:30, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
I also have a card that has no picture. Pikawitchu 19:38, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Hello??? Pikawitchu 19:42, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Respond on my talk page if you can please. Pikawitchu 19:44, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Okay, for the first card: Can you take a picture, or a scan of the card that you own? It would help greatly if we could see an image of the card, we could then determine if the card is real (and we happen to actually be missing it) or if it's a fake. (Also, if you take a picture of it with a digital camera, or webcam, I must ask that you try to get the picture to be mainly the card, and in as best of quality as possible.) - Kogoro | Talk to me - 19:48, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
For the second card: Are you able to scan the card we're missing an image of? It would help greatly if you could do so, upload it to the archives and then add it to the article ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me - 19:48, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

How do i get the picture to you Pikawitchu 20:32, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

It needs to be a scan. Not a picture. -Sketch 20:34, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

with all due respect please be quiet im talking to Kogoro Pikawitchu 20:37, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

I have just as much authority as Kogoro. -Sketch 20:41, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
If you look at the left of the page in the "Toolbox" you can see a option "Upload File".--Blake 20:43, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry i offended you Sketch, it's just kogoro, or any admin i guess needs to check and see if a card i have is fake so i want to give it her not upload it to bulbapedia, no offense blake, nice advice by the way. Pikawitchu 20:47, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, Sketch is also an admin, but he's also a Bureaucrat. So he's a step above me. But yes, Sketch & Blake are right. As Sketch said, a scan is what is needed, especially if the card is indeed real. And as Blake said, the convenient upload file link is found in the toolbox. The reason I really want to view the card first, is because we have a nearly complete database of the TCG, so it's best to be cautious when there is a possibility that the card is a fake. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 20:54, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Where should i upload it to? Pikawitchu 20:55, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

You mean what destination file name should it have? If so, Use the name of the card, then "Unknown" then the number on the card. So if it was an Infernape card, with 26 as the "set" number, you'd use "InfernapeUnknown26" (It's not the best of names, but it will work for now). - Kogoro | Talk to me - 21:11, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Oh... And if you mean if you should upload it to the Archives, yes, please do so. If it is a fake, I can just delete it. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 21:12, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Every time i try to upload it it keeps saying it has no exstention but it has a .jpg at the end. Pikawitchu 21:24, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Make sure the extension is on the destination file name too. Sorry, forgot to mention that ^_^; - Kogoro | Talk to me - 21:27, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

It's Uploaded to the archives as Misty's SeakingUnknown132.jpg Pikawitchu 21:32, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

We do have that card, it is Misty's Seaking (Gym Heroes 55) - Kogoro | Talk to me - 21:35, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Cool, Hey I have the card for Dratini delta species 46/101 Do you want me to upload it to the archives and you add it to the article or me if i can which i don't know if i can? Pikawitchu 21:38, 27 February 2009 (UTC) It's a Grass type card Pikawitchu 21:41, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

We don't have a scan on the page Dratini δ (EX Dragon Frontiers 46), but I do own the card. So, if your card is in great condition, yes, you can scan and upload it. (Remember to check the scans of the other EX Dragon Frontiers, so you know what how to tag, license, and name the image. If you chose to upload your scan) If you don't wish to scan, or if the card is in less than great condition, I will get to that set soon enough ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me - 21:52, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Gotta leave thanks for all the help, and i'll try to upload tomorrow. Thanks! Pikawitchu 21:58, 27 February 2009 (UTC)


I never saw your warning.
You see I am new to Bulbapedia.
Can you please tell me when will I get my privelage back?
I hate that Magnedeth guy.

PRONGS - unsigned comment from Prongs (talkcontribs)
I do not know when you will be allowed to edit your userpage again. However, I suggest you try making some constructive edits to the mainspace. You never know, maybe proving that you're here to contribute will prove you deserve your userspace editing privilege back. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 07:18, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Won't they give any other way?
Is it really necessary to edit?
If yes do tell me if can edit something.

--Prongs 07:29, 28 February 2009 (UTC)PRONGS
Yes, it is necessary to edit the mainspace. We're an encyclopedia about Pokémon, not the Pokémon edition of MySpace. You will receive your userspace editing privileges back at 13:22, 6 March 2009 (UTC). No time sooner. So take that time to do something constructive. And a heads-up, if you continue to mainly edit the userspace after your privileges are returned, they will be revoked again, and you may be punished further. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 07:34, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Gee thanks a lot. Do tell me some page on which I can edit.

--Prongs 07:40, 28 February 2009 (UTC)PRONGS
You can find many articles that need information in the sub-categories of Category:Pages_needing_attention, just remember to read the policies that are linked to in the welcome on your talk page before making any edits. It will help make your stay here much easier for you, and other editors. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 07:47, 28 February 2009 (UTC)


I have started using your advise.
I just ended an argument about the luxary tribe.
Can you please become my friend?
You seem to be the friendliest adminstrator.(That magnadeth guy sucks)
Respond on my user talk.
          --Prongs 08:27, 28 February 2009 (UTC)PRONGS
  1. Well, umm... You still aren't editing mainspace pages, you're now editing talk pages too much. So you're not really taking my advice as much as you should. Plus, never ever ever blank pages, if you think it should be removed, put {{DiscussDelete}} onto the page. If it's obviously un-notable, or a fake/vandal page, then you put {{delete}}.
  2. You didn't really end the "argument" about the Luxray Tribe you've just added your beliefs to the discussion.
  3. Um, I guess? I don't really see the point in it though. I'm not trying to offend with saying this.
  4. Thanks, though MAGNEDETH isn't mean or anything, just strict when it comes to a lot of the rules.
  5. *points to the big bar before any sections* If I'm messaged on my talk page, I will reply here, thanks. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 08:40, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Oh!!Come on till today I didn't even knew how to edit.I'm sorry. If you hate me so much I'll stop troubling you.

                            --Prongs 08:47, 28 February 2009 (UTC)PRONGS
It's not really a matter of hate as it is the twenty questions after I told you to lurk about the place and check the differences between revisions by us to see what was the best way to do things. I know BP's not hella active now as opposed to earlier in the day, but at the same time, Recent changes can show as many edits as you'd like. TTEchidna 08:50, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
I don't hate you. Not once did I ever say that. Please do not assume such things of people. I understand how it is to be a new user (everyone here does, we've all been new at wiki-editing at some point in our lives), my suggestion again is to check out all of the links provided in the welcome that is at the top of your talk page. Study the policies, because the policies are your friend. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 08:53, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

All right then. I'll check.Sorry. --Prongs 08:57, 28 February 2009 (UTC)PRONGS

Hey I dont wanna be cheeky but how do we become a admin.

             --Prongs 09:03, 28 February 2009 (UTC)PRONGS
You can't really become a admin, but you can become an admin by making many quality contributions, and showing to the editorial board (by your interactions with other users, edit quality, etc.) that you deserve to be an admin. And of course, don't ask. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 09:10, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

I must say I will try my best to become one. (And to improve my grammer too) Found anything nice to edit? I just entered a trivia in EP004.

         --Prongs 09:34, 28 February 2009 (UTC)PRONGS



I have gone through all the rules and have resently made an edit in the Heracross,Croagunk 
and Blaziken.Just check if they are right.I wanted to know how to win these awards

like golden something and all. Do reply on my talk page.

                      --Prongs 11:54, 28 February 2009 (UTC)PRONGS
Whoa! You have asked this very same question on 5 other user talk pages before mine, that's not good. To learn how to obtain any of the awards just check this link. And please, please please, don't ask numerous people the very same question like you did with this one! (Please be prepared, you will see a message on your talk page from me very soon after this is posted.) - Kogoro | Talk to me - 11:59, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Speaking of these, I was just wondering, how did you do those glitter effects? *tc26* 12:08, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
I made the glittering part myself. Using photoshop to plot out how to make them transition so they would appear like sparkles. Put them into their locations. Then, saved all 15 (I think) frames as separate PNGs, then used an AniPNG editor to animate! - Kogoro | Talk to me - 12:12, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Lol, that's awesome. Hey, isn't it nearly time to give them out again.--Clarky13 12:14, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I expect probably sometime within the first week of March you will see the February recipients be given their awards - Kogoro | Talk to me - 12:16, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
