On the protected page List of Pokemon by Color, Weepinbell has an extra }}. Only administrators can edit it, so I am asking for your help.GreenGyarados


ok, sorry, i only have problems to get the all the bars to the same size ...--Hanmac

PS: User:TTEchidna/TypeBased this user make this for me (→ Pokewiki), and now i does not need this anymore --Hanmac


Okie. But that does not mean that we can't have the owners listed in the Pokemon SP page. Also, the list of Pokemon SP by Owner has to be updated as it lacks many cards. It's gonna take some time. --Maxim 15:23, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

re: Anime voice actors

RE: your comment on my page of 19:31, 15 July 2009 (UTC) , I was not aware of the new regulations. THanks for calling me on them.--SupremeBlisseyFan 23:52, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Pages for deletion

I was just bringing promo cards etc. up to date and check other lists when I noticed that the Pokémon SP article has been updated to include the owner's names. I was about to update the List of Pokémon SP by Owner article, but this seems unecessary to keep now. Other articles not needed are the individual half deck pages that cover those already in the Trainer Kits (Latias/Latios, Plusle/Minun and Lucario/Manaphy half decks). All relevant info is in the Trainer Kit articles, plus more concise card lists. ~~nuva-kal 12:15, 17 July 2009 (UTC)


why have you change my edit? --Hanmac

How to enlarge the charizard which is inside the infobox?

What i do?

I only was rearranging the Pokedex entries to not be too much closer to the image of the pokemon. Why i was blocked? Mario136 18:20, 22 July 2009 (UTC)


Any particular reason you removed the link to from that talk page archive? It seems like a really random and needless thing to do. Missingno. Master wants YOU! Join the Order of the Glitch! (my talk page) 19:59, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

About the thing i put on Eusine

Then should the one for Brendan be taken off, it says that he is holding a green pokéball.--Pokéboy93 23:53, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for telling me. Those sorts of trivia shouldn't be there, because they can obviously be seen when looking at the artwork. I promptly removed it. MaverickNate 00:45, 26 July 2009 (UTC)


Help is appreciated. Also, I'm embarrassed. Heh. -- evkl (need to talk?) 16:20, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Please !!! HElp Me

Hi Maverick, i need your help. Actually i used to upload new pictures (with high/better quality) for old articles of bulbapedia such as EP099. Yesterday, i uploaded a new image for EP099 article. That image was the screenshot from the deleted scene of EP099. I uploaded it because the previous image on the deleted scene section of the article was in low and poor quality. My new image was totally fine with nice quality and was 100% suitable for that section of the article. A user named J-J-M deleted my pic and said that it is not the part of deleted scene. I don't no what's wrong with him, i saw that episode again and it was the part of it (deleted scene) along with that he also deleted that pic and i can't undo now. Please help me and suggest whether i re-upload the image or anything else. I am really working hard in finding new images and he don't have any right to spoil my hard work. I am sorry if i bothered you but please tell me what should i do now. Thank you. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 05:52, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

This is on the Archives?--RexRacer 06:24, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

On the archieves? i am talking about EP099 article on bulbapedia not bulba archieves. I think he (J-J-M) deleted the pic from bulba archieves too. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 06:26, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

I'd be surprised to hear that J-J-M has power on the Archives. I'll take a look, though.--RexRacer 06:32, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
Issue fixed. You marked your upload with {{delete}} instead of the old pic. Your upload didn't show, because an admin deleted it because of the template. J-J-M was just reverting, because of the unshowing image. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 06:32, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

What??? Really but i marked the old one to delete. Anyway, i am sorry for the trouble and thanks for helping me. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 06:39, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

My parents thought this was a FORUM, but after I showed them, they said yes. It turned out that when they mean 'online communities' they actually mean 'Chatrooms or Forums'

Uhhh (Reply)

Like I said (but forgot the subject/headline) my parents thought this was a FORUM, but after I showed them, they said yes. It turned out that when they mean 'online communities' they actually mean 'Chatrooms or Forums'


What are you talking about? --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 05:24, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I once said at my website [1] that due to my parents, I wasn't allowed on communities. But when they meant 'communities' they actually meant 'FORUMS' or 'CHATROOMS'. When they saw that BulbaPedia was a Wikia, they said I can register, since it is not a forum or chatroom. Something VERY NASTY happened on a forum years ago as somebody asked for personal information... I alerted an Admin(who banned the guy) and my parents, who told me to immediatly leave the forum and never coming back. The forum was deleted but re-uploaded. ALL messages and users have been deleted, so I was happy with that.


About you undoing my revision... I think it should be there. If we are doing the moves, why not the held item? --CUBONE PWNS (Planet CuboneBone Club) I have a headache... 00:38, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

I haven't thought about what the style or wording should be, and i like to avoid putting non style things on pages. That is so other users don't see it, assume it is style, and start putting it on other pages, causing a ton of pages to have incorrect styles. MaverickNate 00:40, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Could you reword that? It gave me a headache... --CUBONE PWNS (Planet CuboneBone Club) I have a headache... 01:03, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Reword what? MaverickNate 01:59, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
What you just said. --CUBONE PWNS (Planet CuboneBone Club) I have a headache... 02:00, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't want people to see an unapproved wording, assume that it actually is what we want, and start adding that wording to pages. It is so that we don't have to end up fixing a ton of pages down the road when i get around to it. MaverickNate 02:14, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Ohhhhh. Thanks. --CUBONE (Planet CuboneBone Club) PWNS 02:15, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Some TCG cards we might need...

Here. I've searched for articles on those, and I can't seem to find them. I have on good sources that the cards do, in fact, exist, but only a few sets were produced. If we could get someone translating those, that would be great. Any ideas? --ニョロトノ666 20:56, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Check out Illustration contests#CoroCoro Pokémon Snap Contest. We've already got articles on those, because they were all reprints in Spring of 1999 in the Unnumbered Promotional cards. We've also got images of all of them too. Also, smpratte is a user here who I have been helping trying to figure out how to upload images, which, for some reason, hasn't been working for him. He has all the remaining promo cards we need, and also all the images we need bigger, better scans of. MaverickNate 21:12, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Regarding Those Images

If you haven't already got rid of them, feel free to do so. Sorry if this is too late of a reply. :P --Moisesmorales δ 08:36, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Pokégym Research Tower

Thanks to the Pokégym Research Tower, I was able to find enough scans to complete the Supreme Victors set list beyond almost any shadow of a doubt. The only scan they're currently missing is retro Zapdos, which can easily be placed in the list. --Shiningpikablu252 15:29, 9 August 2009 (UTC)


I don't agree with your on their predictability. The sets are almost completely predictable; especially on the rares cards. But since you are Leader, I shall obey your every command. - plau 16:16, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

OK, OK, I promise I won't edit attack names in the origins! You have my word! What just happened was merely a slip of the mind, a brain fart if you may. Anything to avoid getting kicked out! --Shiningpikablu252 04:49, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm quite surprised. And extremely disappointed it had to resort to that. I had a notice full of quotations and research and all sorts of things; and then I got a new messages in the preview. And then an edit conflict with a new message I have a hard time believing. Just to make sure, this talk page edit will be linked in the top box. Remember, I'm always watching the cards. MaverickNate 04:59, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I kind of forgot I'd made that prior promise to begin with for a second when I made those edits. Sorry to have made a spectacle of things in the history. Trust me, I'll make things right and things'll be as good as if this incident never happened. --Shiningpikablu252 05:03, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Unsatisfactory, WHY ??????

Hey nate, can you please tell me why my new uploaded pictures are in unsatisfactory. I don't think there is any problem in them. Yesterday i uploaded two images Mariah (Johto) & Trixie and both are in nice quality and there was no any reason given in unsatisfactory tag. Please check those images and tell me if there is any problem. This is my kind request. Why J-J-M put that unsatisfactory tag on those images? --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 06:10, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Oh. I will re-upload them in png but sorry kenji i don't have those images in large size. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 06:36, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

It was Darknesslover5000 who asked the question. A question that doesn't help the article and should be asked on the forums. --ケンジガール 01:28, 12 August 2009 (UTC)


Uh..thx?--Darknesslover5000 01:38, 12 August 2009 (UTC)


Why'd you revert my edit on Reverse World's Giratina? I honestly think that Trivia is interesting, because on the card Will-O-Wisp is more powerful than Shadow Force... yet in the games, it's vice-versa. --CuboneKing 03:26, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Talk:Azure Flute

Talk pages are for the content of the article, not about the subject of it. That page is clearly forum stuff. --CuboneKing 04:04, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

It is asking a question that, when an answer is given, it WILL help the article. I'm getting sick and tired of people removing legitimate questions from talk pages just because they don't want to deal with what the person is asking. MaverickNate 04:07, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm somewhat confused, what exactly did he do? As far as I can see, he joined a few projects and made a userpage. Unless those coded messages on his userpage were insults and stuff?

He is not annoying, ok. Nate is just doing his job and you don't have any right to say anything against him in that way. Look buddy, firstly you should have realize about your mistake. Continuous editing (of your main page or talk page) causes trouble for the administrators because they have to look for other articles too.

How do you want to handle how these cards are presented, considering one is essentially entirely artwork, and the other is the one with the attacks? I've also contacted Card Collector with some requests, so I'll upload any images I get off them. ~~nuva-kal 18:42, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

I wanted to have the second number redirect to the first number, and put them both onto the same page. But currently, I'm lost on other ideas. If you suggest anything,or make any of the pages, I'll look at whatever yu do and see if it works the best possible way. Currently, putting class=Legend will add the Legend in the image name. MaverickNate 18:45, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
I think that is probably the best approach, as all of the relevant info will be on one page. When it comes to numbering in the infobox, both numbers could be added with comments in brackets - like in holo and non-holo ptints in th e-card sets. For example, 015/070 (Upper portion) and 016/070 (Lower portion), or something along those lines. As for the cards themselves, I am in love with the artwork but iffy with the text displacement. ~~nuva-kal 19:24, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
What should we do about the Great Pokémon cards? I want your ideas on it. Also, what images were you able to get? MaverickNate 21:19, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, been a bit busy recently, although everyhting seems to have been done anyway. Still haven't got any reply from the seller; he must be a busy guy, since every request in the past has taken a while. I have been compiling info as to improve the illustrator articles, as some quite frankly, deserve it. I was wondering if there was a need to include a list of illustrated cards for each of them since there is a category for them anyway. I know with illustrators where the is nothing on them may seem extremely bare, but it gets extremely clustered for some of the ones I am working on, as they have done many cards and have other credits.
I have also been trying to dig up info on older promo cards where I can, since someone on PokéGym rather loosely commented that our info on them is "shallow at best". Kinda hard considering most of these cards were snapped up before the majority of people had a decent internet connection to help spread the word. ~~nuva-kal 16:21, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
Wow, I know exactly what you are talking about with that person on PokéGym (I actually think i instigated the comment). Also, go right ahead on improving the illustrator pages! It has been on my to do list to improve them, because I too hated the list of cards. I already tried to improve some of them: Suwama Chiaki, Etsuya Hattori, Asuka Iwashita, Sayuri Ichiishi; but because of how little is known on these people, it is tough work for one person to do. Feel free to improve whatever you want, because they need it. I'm just glad I was able to fix the list.
Also, I was going to ask you to try to get the release information sections up for any promo cards without it...I just didn't do it yet. o_o; MaverickNate 22:40, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Red image replacement

Is there a way I may use my hi-res FireRed LeafGreen Red image to replace the current lo-res one currently in the Red (game) article?--Heero45 02:29, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Really? It looks to me the quality seems to have significantly dropped. Not sure if it's an issue with the site as when I initially uploaded the image it still retained its color and sharpness.--Heero45 02:37, 15 September 2009 (UTC)


Info is here. You still think we shouldn't add the info? ht14 23:35, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

That's what the information is based off of. Not all the information is there. The levels aren't there, and if we don't have all the information, don't list any of unknown. MaverickNate 14:41, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
So simply put, either we put in all or none... right? ht14 19:34, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
If you can get the battle e cards and get the info, then yes we can put it in. But, since we don't know all the unknown information, we can't put any of it in. MaverickNate 19:35, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
All right. ht14 19:37, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
Related question: for cards like this, should I fill in the ???s with what they actually are (since I have that card so I know what the "secret" Pokémon is) or are they left as "???" on purpose? ZestyCactus 19:40, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
I'll need to ask about it later. But i'm thinking the spoiler policy isn't going to fly anymore... Keep the info handy MaverickNate 19:44, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

"In need of Japanese Names"

I bring up the card Pokémon Machine. I'm not sure what you need on it, since there is no Japanese name, nor a name to translate (seeing how the name of the card was taken from the only English text on the card). Seeing how it's the only card in these categories (that I've been clearing out), I thought I'd ask you what to do about it. -Mefredbob 11:01, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

P.S. For the "Top 4 Trainers" card (which isn't really called that), if you find out who came in second place for the Japan's Best tournament in 2002, you'll have the complete title of the card. It's too blurred to read, and I couldn't find reference to the winning participants anywhere... Even on, they only list the First Place winner. -Mefredbob 16:44, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Unreleased Cards/Pokedex

I don't mind doing the translating. I've gone through the ones I actually found. I really wish the ones needing translating were actually listed. "Please provide a translation for this entry" was written on some (which I translated), and made it a ton easier. There should be some standard implemented, so it's easier to find. That being said, I don't mind translating, but I don't really want to go through 700 pages looking. -Mefredbob 03:14, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Done. -Mefredbob 03:14, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Why did you delete that template? - SavageWolf 18:33, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

It was one time use only, so it was better coded out in the Sandbox. MaverickNate 18:34, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
It was designed also for personal sandboxes, and {{sandbox}} is easier for new users to understand, especially on a page where they delete stuff they think are unneeded. - SavageWolf 18:38, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
If it was going to be used for Personal sandboxes as well, most of the comments on the template would have been wrong. "Bulbapedia Sandbox" (nope it's a personal one.) "Anyone can use this to test things" (Also false, because personal sandboxes are for that person only.) It really isn't needed, and it only truly applies for that one, hence the subst. We don't need tons of templates that are one time use. That wastes space. MaverickNate 18:41, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
Uh, the template had things like {{#ifeq:{{PAGENAME}}|Sandbox|It's the Bulbapedia one|It isn't}}, checking the identity of the page... - SavageWolf 18:45, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
Hello? - SavageWolf 20:32, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
Nate, I see no problem with this. The problems you pointed out weren't actually problems in the first place. It's a multi-use template, and is essentially {{talk archive}} for sandboxes. —darklordtrom 23:37, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
I don't really see a use for it. I still think it is better subst. MaverickNate 00:59, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
Users can put in on their sandboxes to signify that they need not be modified by other users. It gives a brief description of what a sandbox is, what shouldn't be in it. It has a use beyond the official Bulbapedia sandbox. —darklordtrom 01:15, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
The rules are good enough in saying that you shouldn't edit other people's sandboxes. All of what you described is already stated in the userspace rules. It has a redundant use outside of the public sandbox. MaverickNate 01:20, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, we all know how closely everyone adheres to the userspace policy... —darklordtrom 01:41, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Fake Cards

That's fine if there's no need for a Project Fake Card, I'm content with having a fake card related article (or however many there ends up being). I take it you saw the test article I created in my userspace? - Nick15 01:24, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm glad you're okay with it. I did see your future article. I'll put it in my template seen at the top of my page. MaverickNate 01:26, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
Yah, don't worry, not having a Project Fake Card section isn't going to ruin my day. Although I'd be lying if I said that I won't ask about it again sometime in the future--albeit only after I feel it's gotten large enough to be recognized on its own, and who knows when that'll be. It also sounds like you get a lot of kids who demand that they be allowed to make their own Projects too, only to get upset when you say No. :P
Another question: At what point would the fake card article be moved to its final location in Bulbapedia proper, or can I just move it there now? Would it also be OK for me to lay the foundation for other fake card-related articles once the main article goes live? Are there any particular guidelines I would follow regarding the creation of new articles? I'll probably just emulate the kinds of articles that already exist. - Nick15 04:56, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
Since I'm not really familiar with the Fake TCG aspect, we'll have to just see what you create in your userspace and decide what is most appropriate for a new article. MaverickNate 22:27, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Fake Card Category?

Would it be appropriate to instead list the fake card article, as well as other articles relating to fake cards, under a fake card category rather than the TCG category? Perhaps/Obviously the fake card category would be a subcategory under TCG, but I think it might be a general good idea to list them in their own category. However I'm not at all familiar with all of Bulbapedia's rules and guidelines, so I'm not sure if having a fake card category would be appropriate. Whaddya think? - Nick15 22:22, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

If there end up being enough of them, yes. A category would be appropriate. probably something like: Category:Fake TCG? MaverickNate 22:25, 14 October 2009 (UTC)


did you reverse my edit? --Swampertrox (bleh) 01:32, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Disambigs are only to link to things with actual pages. Little Pink is an example of a subsection: not a page. MaverickNate 01:34, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. BTW why are all the Pokémon pages protected? Let me guess, something to do with the iPhone app controversy. --Swampertrox (bleh) 01:42, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Bingo. MaverickNate 02:16, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

New Tasks

Is there anything else, translation-wise you need help with? I'd work on the HG/SS cards, but since the Pokédex entries are the same as the Gold/Silver entries, I have a feeling that the translation will change when the new games are released, making all the edits made now kinda pointless. Mefredbob 06:52, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

I don't have any card translation things to do at the moment. You've finished everything that the TCG needs done. There is, however, the Category:Songs with untranslated lyrics. Maybe you could try your hand at some of those? MaverickNate 18:53, 19 October 2009 (UTC)


Is there a reason why we're leaving all of these TCG categories red...? They've been there for ages now. --electAbuzzzz 17:23, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

It's a reminder telling me what I still need to do. It also makes it easier for me to visually see a red link at the bottom if I just want to glance and skim over an article instead of read for the certain category. If you notice, most of them are transfered over to the correct titles and update and things. P, T, J, L-P, are all finished, I just haven't done the other three yet. MaverickNate 21:28, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Why delete user pages?

I know it's been a long time, but...why did you delete my user page? Pokemaster5000 16:29, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

You blanked your userpage. We delete blanked userpages. --electAbuzzzz 16:43, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
If you want to add anything to your page, you can always re-create it whenever you like. But there's no point in keeping a blank page hanging about, generally. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 00:59, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Only when TTE finally decides to put them into the infobox. We aren't there yet MaverickNate 03:24, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

No... ht14 02:30, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

This isn't hand-drawn... ht14 03:25, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
Okay. Next time I edit the infobox, I'll add in that option. But I'm trying to minimize the amount of categories needed to be put in manually. MaverickNate 03:28, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
I understand. Just wanted you to know. ht14 03:39, 4 November 2009 (UTC)


Yes. We talked about it yesterday and decided that epicodes is the one area in Bulbapedia where Japanese is preferred. They're sorta like production codes. If you want a fuller explanation, go on AIM. There is one. --electAbuzzzz 17:21, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

14k Pokemon Cards

It has come to my attention that the TCGdex does not include the six solid gold Kanto pokemon cards. If you have any questions about the existence of these cards leave a comment on my talk page. I happen to have a set of these cards.


There are these solid gold pokemon cards. They were released during the time that Kanto was still airing. Follow this link to see a picture:] BY THE WAY THERE ARE SIX CARDS IN ALL.

Google It

Just google Gold Pokemon Cards in Google Images


there is just one problem now. They were not given out by Burger King. They were available in stores. When I purchased mine in 1999, I got them from Toy's R Us


I was just saying where I got mine. But their is one difference. Your article said they were in a blue box, mine are in red boxes.

Re: Card scans

I love your card scans. They are extremely fantastic. But, instead of uploading a new file, it is a lot easier to go to the archives page of the image that's already on the card page, and click the "Upload a new version of this file" link. Since all of the images we already have are set up to our standard, it is much easier for everyone if you upload a new version of the file. That way, you don't have to edit the page--it already is linked to from the card page, and all the images are categorized to our liking. If you do do this, however, the Archives might not refresh with your image right when you upload it. Don't fret if it doesn't, and also do not try to upload it again. The image would already be there and upload, just not showing. IU hope you stick around for a while: your scans are extremely cool. MaverickNate 01:27, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

BTW, also categorize by Pokémon names and TCG set. Thanks. ht14 02:23, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
Hi Thanks for the advice! I tried what you said and it is definitely faster. how long does it usually take to upload? also where do I categorize by Pokémon names and TCG sets? --Pikachu Collector 02:32, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
just got your other msg. thanks again!! --Pikachu Collector 02:35, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi, can we get your opinion real quick?

Can you go to the Pokémon(species) talk page. We need a admins opinion.--Midnight Blue 03:33, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Admin opinion already happened, man. MaverickNate 03:35, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Alright, I guess it happened while I was writing to you.--Midnight Blue 03:37, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

So yes

Regarding this, should we add every move in the TCG? It would probably make the page a third to a half longer than what it is right now. R.A. Hunter Blade 18:34, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

I think what we wanted for that page was to only put each move once. So, Call for familk would only be classified the first time it appeared. But, yes, the point was to add every single one. The way you can do that is search the Japanese name to see if it is an actual move, because sometimes the translations are off. The Hula-la's Japanese name is that of Teeter Dance, so it shouldn't go on that page. Are you planning on doing that for the page? MaverickNate 19:59, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
Eh, I was thinking more or along the lines of either looking at the TCG pages here on the Pedia or look at my own 900 or so cards to see what moves we have and don't have. I've been meaning to ask for a while anyways, but I was looking at the Houndoom moves, and I noticed that a lot of the moves that they have aren't on the page, such as for this Houndoom (not even Fireworks is listed, even though there are a number of cards I can think of that have it). The only reason I was looking at Houndoom is because I have the Great Encounters Houndoom, and his are the only moves listed. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:34, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

A¬ G=

Hello, I created the page A ¬ G recently and you deleted the page with the comment 'didn't we delete this once?' but the only glitch pokemon page I've made on bulbapedia before that was O (glitch pokemon). I made A¬ G and it did not give me any message implying that the page ever existed. I wouldn't dream of recreating a page previously deleted though.

Also if you have time I was told before that O was deleted because it was a glitch pokemon that could only be encountered by gameshark but at that time I presumed it was acceptable because other pokemon even ones such as B oE AN existed on the wiki which required codes such as 'Steal other trainers pokemon' but O was just a normal encounter code. Can you explain a little more about this rule so I don't make the same mistake; and please give a little information to why it A¬G was deleted if it was deleted in the past thanks. Sorry for any troubles --Chickasaurus 18:49, 25 November 2009 (UTC) 18:49 25 November 2009 GMT

As requested

Here's the text of the card you requested~

Attack: ざんぞうぎり (lit. "Afterimage Cut"/"Afterimage Slash"... something along those lines :P)
Effect: When this Pokemon takes damage on the opponent's next turn, flip a coin once. If heads, this Pokemon does not take the damage.

TCG game tables

I'm not sure with the coding and all, but do you think you can clean up Mystery (GB1), Laboratory (GB1), and etc.? It isn't exactly nice-looking. ht14 01:48, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

I will have a Hi-Res scanner to re-scan my cards!

I wanted to tell you that I was told my scans were too dark/eye hurting and I could not upload scans unless I get a new scanner. Well, I will have a new scanner to scan my cards. I will receive it at December 10, but might not get installed until December 12. I used the 'Try before Buy' option so I could see what resolution my cards would appear in the scanner. You can compare my Altomare's Latias and Altomare's Latios on my current scanner(scans on the left) and the one I tried and will receive(scans on the right) scanner_hi-res.jpg

Is this convenient for the TCGDex? I am going to re-scan ALL my cards, so if there is a missing card scan, whatever if I have it in English, French, German or even Japanese, I will upload it here with HD colors and the BEST resolutions. So from December 12, I will re-scan my card and overwrite my old scans(like those 5, 6, 7, 8, 9th Movie Half Decks and 11th Movie Special cards scans that were too dark/eye hurting)

I hope those changes will help BulbaPedia ;)

Color group userboxes

Unfortunately, I'm no expert on these userboxes, so I will need some help to create a single userbox for all color groups. Note that we have separate userboxes for favorite color, i.e. Template:User Likes Red, Template:User Likes Blue, etc. For now, I think having separate userboxes for the Pokémon color groups is sufficient, until at least we can make a general color group userbox.

Cool Couple and Double Team (Trainer class)

Why did you remove the merge tags? Your edit summery said "a big established no" but the discussion was quite balanced on the talk pages, and I see no discussion on the Bulbawiki Forum. --SnorlaxMonster. Help here 06:52, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

I discussed it with a couple other over aim. Since the Japanese names are different, and the sprites are not based on the same people, they can't properly be merged over the same page, since they aren't the same thing. MaverickNate 19:15, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, but

why did you remove my edit? why didn't you use the bag template? --Hanmac 08:38, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Bulbanews' {{Rumor}}

I'm not sure who to talk to over this, but... In the template, shouldn't it say "contains some information that HAS not been confirmed as true", as opposed to the current "contains some information that HAVE not been confirmed as true"?

No it shouldn't say that. Information is a singular noun. Has is correct. Thanks for telling me MaverickNate 13:55, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Ask Cipher, he was the one who posted it onto the Value packs and sets article. I was just going off of what he added there. MaverickNate 15:31, 28 December 2009 (UTC)


Right on the page: it says its a part of a coding. It's also a Code template. We use a lot around here to seperate the stub notice and the project notice, among other things.--Smartkidhen 17:38, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Just because it is a code template does not mean we have to use it. The page looks better, in my opinion, without a ton of breaks separating everything. And, if you actually want to follow rules, no pages are supposed to have the project notice if they are still stubs. MaverickNate 17:43, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
Crap, seriously, my bad. I won't do it again.--Smartkidhen 17:45, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Question about Linking

I come straight from Wikipedia, and my goal here was to fill in all the incomplete summaries for the anime series. Since I came from Wikipedia, I have a large understanding of WikiTemplates, and I was used to the [[LINK|TEXT]] format of linking, which you have here, but after about five summaries, I was contacted by a patroller who told me I was doing my links wrong and I had to put them in {{p|pikachu}} format or something like that. He said it was easier to do, but since I was used to the LINK/TEXT format, I assumed his comment was optional suggestion. I wrote another summary and continued LINK/TEXT format, and once again, he commented me, but this time he told me that is was policy to put links in this special template, even though it redirects to the same page.

Naturally, I was a little annoyed. I shouldn't have to learn a new template even though my habits create the same outcome. I would like to know if it is actually policy to put it in this template even though it does the same thing as my habits. If so, is it against any rules to just not web my pages together?

My maps

Hi, Sorry, I didn't know I needed to check with anyone first. I've redone them all in HGSS style rather than FRLG style, and the location is always represented by a blinking coloured blob - before it was either a static blob or a white box. If there's anything I need to change, let me know straight away. ;) -Teeth

Regarding the Value Packs and Sets article

Since the larger blister packs have finally been given an official name, and we can assume the smaller ones will be called Two Pack Blisters if they ever resurface, would it be a good idea to use those names throughout the article, for sake of consistency? They can still just be referred to as "blister packs" in the descriptions, I guess. Also, in terms of the Arceus blister having a placeholder image... this and this are on the Collector's Cache - would we be allowed to use 'em and, if so, are they good enough quality? Or do you just wanna stick with the placeholder? Cipher (Talk) 16:01, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, go ahead with the changes. Anything you want. Those images are fine too, if you want to remove the placeholders. MaverickNate 17:41, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Image tagging

Sorry. :P Am I doing it right now? I assumed "tagging" was the licensing thing, as that's all I could find. Please tell me if there's anything else I need to do and I'll do it. -Teeth


With having the sprites, are we allowed to upload from there provided credit is given? ht14 03:39, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

You're tired of people touching Reviving Legends?

Believe me, I'm truly apologetic that I seem to have irritated you so much over this article, but from my perspective, you just reverted my edit, locked the page, and then stormed off in a huff muttering under your breath about how you wish people would just stop messing with your article. Well, I hate to break it to you, but this is a wiki, and I'm well within my rights to make constructive edits to pages. What exactly was the problem with my edit? You gave no reason whatsoever for reverting it. Did you just need me to cite my source? If that's the case, feel free to add article as the source. Drapion 21:09, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Listen, I don't take it personally, but I really don't understand how you can say "We don't know enough about them" when we have pictures of them. I guess I can understand that we need the cards' numbers to make the articles, but I don't see what's so offensive to you about providing the information we do have. There's no need for you to try and convince me that you're right, though, because I'm not going to pursue this further. Drapion 23:03, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
I've reread what you wrote on my talk page and I feel like I understand where you're coming from a little better now. I know Pokémon Sunday isn't an official source, but they have actually shown pictures of the actual cards, so I fail to see how this information could possibly be wrong. Again, I know you feel the need to play the hard line of what this encyclopedia considers to be an accurate source, so I do understand your decision. Drapion 23:18, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

New Picture for Ash's Butterfree

It could be just me, but I find the current picture for Ash's Butterfree to be really bad: its low quality, small, and includes Pikachu, which makes it look realy squished and takes the focus of the picture.

Pikachu Static?

I was thinking that we should add an image of Ash's Pikachu using its Static ability to its page, especially in the History section due the lack of images in that section. I already have a picture for said ability here [3], but I wanted to get your approval before I uploaded it. What do you say? --Skystar 01:30, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Theme decks

Just looking around when I saw that many of the sprites on the cover art are Sugimori art, save for some (Vaporeon, Kangaskhan). Do you think one can upload higher quality sprites based upon them? ht14 02:42, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

What? You make no sense. Elaborate/explain in a different way please. MaverickNate 03:07, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Examples: Water Blast, Brushfire. Their cover arts show Sugimori art. ht14 13:23, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
If I find them, maybe, but I'm not going to search specifically for them anytime soon. I don't own anything like that. MaverickNate 19:55, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Sure, but I'm just wondering if we're allowed to get the Sugimori art from there. As in scan the pic from the cover art and make it transparent, etc. ht14 23:02, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
What do you need the art for? MaverickNate 03:38, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Larger art maybe? I'm not sure... some of them aren't the original Sugimori art (Kangaskhan, Vaporeon), and I might want them up... also, on a similar but different note, I need to find the GSC sprites that have been already uploaded as FRLG sprites (Ledyba, Pichu (needs confirmation), Togepi). ht14 04:05, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Adding Japanese TCG prints to pages

I actually have a question (SHOCK!) and I figured you'd probably be the guy to see about this. Should I be adding cards that are as of yet unreleased in English, but that soon will be, such as the HeartGold Collection print of Bill to the In the TCG section of their respective articles? So, should Bill from HGSS be added to the Bill In the TCG section? Or should we simply wait until HGSS is released in English to avoid fixing red links? --ニョロトノ666 20:16, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

You can add them if you like. I don't really think any redlinks would be involved, because the link should be what the page title is now. For example how the Bill card would be rowspanned to include HeartGold Collection. I'm waiting on a colorful, roundycornered template from TTE, so they all will be checked and updated once he finishes it. Anything you want to do is fine. MaverickNate 20:24, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
Add Bill's PC while you are at it, if you could. MaverickNate 20:25, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
Aha, alright. By the way, I didn't mean redlinks. :P I meant relinks. But yeah, I'll just go ahead. --ニョロトノ666 20:34, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
