I'm new to this site so just give me the rundown and I'd love to make some of the characters pokemon articles so please show me how.

Its and it's

There's a difference. It's always means "it is". Its always means something belonging to "it". TTEchidna 06:02, 3 November 2007 (UTC)


Please use link templates. Shiny?! 21:37, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

No, seriously. Use Link templates. Tina 21:38, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

Page making

Since I'm feeling kind, I'm allowing you to start making the Jasmine's Steelix page on this page. Put all of the info you can find on the page and I'll help you make it. --Theryguy512 19:59, 12 November 2007 (UTC)


We already have pages on Drew's Butterfree and Harley's Octillery --Theryguy512 20:01, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Please don't make a Misty's Golduck page.. --Theryguy512 22:24, 13 November 2007 (UTC)


Yea, Sorry, but it would be a useless page. A beside's it wasn't even Misty's. --Theryguy512 00:00, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

I know hence the quotation marks.

Urm... ?

What was the message about on my talk page? I'm a little confused XD. TESHTALKFUN 20:28, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to Pokémon and some other stuff. For example, {{p|Kricketune}} instead of [[Kricketune]]. This makes you less likely to unknowingly link to a disambiguation page.

For an idea on how link templates work, look at the shortlinks. --Shiningpikablu252 18:26, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Did you even bother to look at the shortlinks? It's not just Pokémon that need link templates! For example, {{m|Flamethrower}} instead of [[Flamethrower]]. I highly recommend learning the shortlinks like the back of your hand before making another edit involving something like a Pokémon or an attack. --Shiningpikablu252 17:14, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

About that page...

sorry, i didnt know you were on his team. ive redone the edit. MAGNEDETH 04:20, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Use Link Templates

I see that you've been told this many times. Use the link templates. Do not just put [[Scizor]]. Put {{p|Scizor}}.

Also instead of double spacing on the lists use the * to make a bullet. --ケンジガール 17:54, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

the dex project

I was just thinking that we should start listing an episode as none if it does have one. This should make it so thatwe know what has been checked and what hasn't. From now on, I'm going to list episodes as none and I want you to do the same please. MoldyOrange 23:42, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Dub Titles

Make sure that when you add them into the links you make them italic and also, keep the coding in a uniform way, like this:''[[DP065|Sleight of Sand!]]''. It keeps everything consistant. MoldyOrange 04:21, 14 July 2008 (UTC)


Slow down on editing the User Space. Editing the User Space too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of doing 10 Small edits, why not use preview to check your edits before you save. Thank you. --DCM 22:03, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Card Trivia

When inserting those pieces of trivia you've been inserting, please do not type out the word move as "Move". Typing it out as "Move" is not good form, and doing such is an easy target to get cleaned up after. We'd rather not clean up after you on this. --Shiningpikablu252 03:26, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Another thing: those move thing belong in the "origin" section, not just "trivia." And there's no reason to write out [[move|moves]], when typing [[move]]s gets you the same thing. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 23:21, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Platinum Standard

It's really appreciated that you're adding Platinum move tutors for Pokémon such as Oddish, but please make bold the STAB? I fixed that part for you here. Thanks! ht14 22:48, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Never mind? I think you just were careless, that's all. ht14 22:51, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Like I said

Keep the two apostraphies for italics outside of the link. It is in the manual of style that they must be on the outside of the entire link, not just the words. Also, it is spelled Ninetales, not Ninetails. MoldyOrange 15:57, 18 October 2008 (UTC)


why are you adding abilities to anime Pokemon pages? -- MAGNEDETH 01:24, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Um, yeah. Don't. I had to go around and revert all of it. Anime Pokémon aren't even confirmed to have abilities, much less the same ones as in the games. For example, an anime Pokémon can't have Pressure because there's clearly no evidence of PP in the anime. --ニョロトノ666 01:34, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Some have actually. How about just hiding them until the specific Pokémon really activates it? *tc26* 01:35, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Some anime Pokémon are confirmed to have abilities? I need examples and evidence. --ニョロトノ666 01:37, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
May's Blaziken and Ash's Sceptile in their battle. Chimchar in just a recent episode. Pikachu early in Advance. *tc26* 01:39, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Do you watch the anime?? *tc26* 01:42, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Evidence? What abilities? How can you tell? --ニョロトノ666 01:40, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Do you watch the anime?? *tc26* 01:42, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
No, but I know enough about it. --ニョロトノ666 01:43, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Watching it or even just listening to it would tell you that they have their respective abilities. Like Pikachu and Static, Blaziken, Chimchar and Blaze, Sceptle and Overgrow, Buizel and Swift Swim... *tc26* 01:46, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Not evidence enough. It needs confirmed. If you want, you can take it up with TTE, but he'll tell you the same thing. --ニョロトノ666 02:11, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
So you mean Buizel's speed increased while it was raining? Or that a Pokémon gained power after taking heavy damage in a way that wasn't the cliched "second wind" style these things usually go by? In short, can these instances you're citing be directly related to abilities? I'm not saying it's impossible; the anime is a commercial for the games, so they might do something with abilities. But just remember the difference between correlation and causation. --((Marton imos)) 02:14, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
They were actually mentioned. *tc26* 02:31, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
In what episode? --ニョロトノ666 02:33, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
