Sorry if the move conversation got too off track. If the staff is discussing it, I've said my own piece there and will stay back for adminship to decide how to proceed.--Darknesslover5000 (talk) 01:59, 14 August 2023 (UTC)

Oh you're fine! Please feel free to discuss it more if you want, but either way a decision will likely be made on this at some point soon. Landfish7 02:11, 14 August 2023 (UTC)
Understood, but you did break up a pointless discussion. That user and I were talking in circles, so it'll be best to leave it to you guys! Thanks!--Darknesslover5000 (talk)
Yeah I really don't think minds are gonna change much on this. But thanks for contributing to the discussion regardless! Landfish7 02:39, 14 August 2023 (UTC)

Convergent Species Article

So, while I know there is no current official title for the phenomenon, will this wiki ever put up an article for convergent forms? TPC and TPCi don't currently seem to have names in mind, but enough fans are using the terms "Convergent Form" and "Regional Fakes" that I'd think at least one can be used. It's just odd to see the Wiglett line, the Toedscool line, and now Poltchageist, without anything on the wiki to categorise them?--Darknesslover5000 (talk) 04:25, 23 August 2023 (UTC)

We're actually currently working on something here: User:Jacob9594/Ecologically similar Pokémon. Landfish7 04:26, 23 August 2023 (UTC)
That's brilliant! Glad to see you guys are on it! It hit me earlier that there really wasn't a term when I was editing Poltchageist, and I was like "...well we need something". That's a great one. I don't know how much this will help, but it appears the Japanese site uses 生態は似ているが seitai wa nite iruga (ecology is similar) if you wanna add that in.--Darknesslover5000 (talk) 06:20, 23 August 2023 (UTC)
Oh you added it! Thanks! I will look forward to this article's release.--Darknesslover5000 (talk) 05:02, 24 August 2023 (UTC)
It's out now :) Landfish7 05:05, 24 August 2023 (UTC)

Light trio

Hi, I was asked to organize some pages and I need more specific information. Do pages for the Light Trio's Pokémon (Nebby, Lunala, and Necrozma) go to specific pages for those Pokémon as this discussion[[1]] suggests?

I sent the contents of the anime page to the main Light trio page and left it only as subsections. https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/w/index.php?title=Light_trio&diff=3787695&oldid=3767354

I am sending this message specifically to you because you were the one who answered it back in 2021 and indicated these pages here, here, and here. I made some small updates to these pages in order to keep them saved in my history, depending on the response, I make the necessary adjustments.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 22:34, 29 August 2023 (UTC)

The info for Nebby can be moved to Nebby#In the anime; the info for Lunala can be moved to User:Playerking95/Lunala (anime); and the info for Necrozma can be moved to User:Playerking95/Necrozma (anime). The two userpages can then be mainspaced, and the main series anime sections for Solgaleo, Lunala, and Necrozma on the Light trio page can be condensed down to maybe about a paragraph, with a main article link added to the top of each section, linking to the new split-off pages. The Light trio (anime) page will need to be maintained as a redirect to Light trio. Afterwards, we can probably see how we can incorporate User:Maverick Nate/Nebby (anime) into the anime section in the Nebby article. Landfish7 03:35, 30 August 2023 (UTC)

Type properties

The new format for type properties is great! I'm so happy to know I'll see it every time I'll go on a type page. There's just one thing I'd change. Offensive and defensive properties tables are now separated with a big gap, same as the gap between generations. This could be a little confusing and intimidating to see, for example, to see six seperate tables instead of three sets. What if instead of separating them with <br>, these tables could just use margin-bottom:3px; property?--Rocket Grunt 13:27, 7 October 2023 (UTC)

Good idea. I'll pass it along! Landfish7 18:41, 7 October 2023 (UTC)
Or how about offensive and defensive tables for the same generation in the same horizontal row? → PikaTepig999 21:32, 7 October 2023 (UTC)
The changes that've been made so far pretty much solved my issues with it. Thanks!--Rocket Grunt 16:24, 8 October 2023 (UTC)

Creating templates

Excuse me, are you the wrong person to ask about creating templates on my user subpage?

You're a very respected staff member here, and if you know about templates, I would love to ask you questions to learn from your rich experience! Solemn Mac (talk) 16:31, 22 October 2023 (UTC)

Sandbox content

Hi Landfish7,

You cleaned out the sandbox a couple of weeks ago. In the sandbox, there was some information placed by a user who has since gotten banned. Although I strongly condemn temper tantrums, this user may have been cooking. Would it be acceptable for me to host this content on a userpage?

Thanks --Apopheniac (talk) 13:49, 1 December 2023 (UTC)

Yes that should be fine. Thanks for asking! Landfish7 02:12, 3 December 2023 (UTC)

Unite Link Template

Hi, thanks for mainspacing User:SuperPikaPool13/Unite to {{UNITE}}. However, shouldn't it be named Un or Uni, to serve as a shorthand? → PikaTepig999 21:06, 6 December 2023 (UTC)

I checked with another staff member and they said 'UNITE' should be fine. Matches the game title and is the most clear and intuitive. Saving a couple characters would be nice but not really essential. Landfish7 21:19, 6 December 2023 (UTC)
A shorter name would also have matched most of existing disambiguation templates. But if this has been given the okay, that works too. Thanks again. → PikaTepig999 21:27, 6 December 2023 (UTC)
I getchu. I think we've been trying to improve our link templates to be more accessible, easy to use, and easy to remember, so that's sort of the idea with the name of this one. Older link templates are sort of just legacied in, although we've had ideas for replacing or merging some of them in ways that are more straightforward and user-friendly. Landfish7 21:32, 6 December 2023 (UTC)

Type Page Template Change

I noticed just a bit ago that the pages for the individual types were edited a couple months ago to adhere to a "new format", which included getting rid of the 'Characteristics' subheading and moving the glut of that info to the 'Trivia' section. I could not find any particular announcement or discussion on-site about this change, and was curious about when this change was decided on and what the particular reason was. --MintBlancmanche (talk) 14:19, 9 December 2023 (UTC)(talk)

This was an internal decision made in September, as the content consisted of strategy tips and synthesis uncharacteristic of Bulbapedia, and trivial matters were moved to trivia. Any functional content was moved to Additional effects in the Battle properties section. Landfish7 17:02, 9 December 2023 (UTC)
I see, that all makes sense. Thank you for the answer! - unsigned comment from MintBlancmanche (talkcontribs)
Happy I could help. By the way, while I've you got you here, always remember to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~) or by pressing the signature button ( ) in the toolbar at the top of the edit window, rather than adding your signature manually or by copying from a previous comment. This is the easiest way to sign, and ensures that the signature and correct timestamp are properly displayed. Thank you. Landfish7 02:48, 10 December 2023 (UTC)

Iono page

One of Lewtwo's bad edits had removed several sections from the Iono page. Could you help me fix it as your edit messed up my fixing it and I do not want to waste time starting over for now. -Tyler53841 (talk) 22:07, 19 December 2023 (UTC)

I actually just noticed the same edit and have passed it along to the other staff. Thanks for reaching out! Landfish7 22:10, 19 December 2023 (UTC)
Oh btw, please assume good faith and not refer to other user's edits as "bad". Thank you. Landfish7 22:19, 19 December 2023 (UTC)
Sorry, but anyway at least I figured out to modify the edit history abit to fix the issue. -Tyler53841 (talk) 22:21, 19 December 2023 (UTC)
In the future, if you're making such a fix, I'd try to do so in a way that doesn't remove info that has been added since the older revision. I know that can be more complicated, but we don't want to remove a significant amount of info without explanation. Landfish7 22:25, 19 December 2023 (UTC)


I disagree. I think it deserves to be focused on.

(Misery Vex (talk) 23:19, 17 January 2024 (UTC))

Please keep discussions in one place. That is, please reply to the discussion here. Thank you. Landfish7 23:27, 17 January 2024 (UTC)

Possible spambot

Hi Landfish, I am little concerned about this user being a spambot judging by their talk page --Thespeon196 (talk) 13:02, 1 April 2024 (UTC)

Dealt with. Thanks! Landfish7 13:04, 1 April 2024 (UTC)

Visual Editor issues

I've noticed when using the Visual Editor, it really does not like to submit edits on particularly long pages. Is this a known issue? --CuteShaymin (talk) 04:54, 30 April 2024 (UTC)

I've not heard this. I'll pass it along. Thanks for letting us know! Landfish7 08:45, 30 April 2024 (UTC)

Edit war on Sensational Sisters

Weedle McHairybug has reverted me twice on this page regarding the status on Misty's current status regarding the Cerulean Gym.

This is not the first time that they've been involved in an edit war with me regarding a Misty-related edit, and their most recent edit summary is basically speculating that Misty "quit" being a Gym Leader (even though there's no indication that this is true in Japanese or English, despite their claims).
