Connecting locations

The directions for connecting locations are not really about where you're facing when you enter a place. That sort of thing doesn't help you find the locations at all. Verdant Cavern is a perfect example; if you say its connection is south, then people will look for it at the south end of the route...and no one will be able to find it. The directions should generally tell you where you have to go in the route. Tiddlywinks (talk) 02:37, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Sorry about that, I interpret a place's connecting locations, for example, as Route 14 is connects with Tapu Village to the north and with Thrifty Megamart (Abandoned Site) to the east. Though I do want to bring up some inconsistencies with pages, such as Ten Carat Hill stating it's west of Route 1 and the Thrifty Megamart (Abandoned Site) stating that it's north of Route 14. Though your explanation doesn't really explain the why Thrifty Megamart is shown to be in the east on the Route 14, as someone would still be able to reasonably find it by searching the north of Route 14, even if it's on the eastern portion of the route. After all, Route 8 shows that Route 5 is merely to the south of the route, not informing them that it's exit is on the western portion of Route 8.Sinjoh (talk) 03:41, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Split gender merge

This is a very, very minor thing, but could I make suggestion? Instead of adding the template like this: {{#ifexpr: ({{#time: H}} mod 2) = 0|592|592F}} (I'm using Frillish's number as an example here), like you've been doing, I works like this too, saving space ever so slightly: 592{{#ifexpr: ({{#time: H}} mod 2=0||F}} --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:12, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

No problem. Sinjoh (talk) 17:49, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Locations within locations

I can understand why you're removing those items lists, since they, having their own pages, really don't belong to the page about the area they're located within. I had previously approved this because there were Pokémon listed from those "locations within locations" there as well, like the Fighting Dojo gift Pokémon being listed on Saffron City's page. But what about Pallet Town? Do we give it the same treatment, as many things there technically happen at Professor Oak's Laboratory? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:17, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, that's fine. Sinjoh (talk) 01:35, 2 December 2018 (UTC)


Please don't make large/major changes without staff approval. As I stated in the talk page, staff will reevaluate the page when the figure gets released (probably has by now). Don't just up and change the page because you want it a certain way. Also, we will be using "Leaf" when used in the context of FireRed and LeafGreen, not Green.--ForceFire 16:48, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Listen to Force Fire. Discuss about big edits before making them to see if the staff approves it or not. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:05, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
Again, why is something supplementary being used for her name, when the games establish it? I already stated on Green's talk page the admins made a precedent with Ethan upon the release of HGSS that the games come first and foremost, and established with Elio/Selene that supplementary material would be used if the games didn't establish one. Why the blatant double standard? Also if Green is going to be referred to as "Leaf" in the contexts of FRLG, then shouldn't Ethan be referred to "Gold" in the context of GSC? It was his name during Gen II. Sinjoh (talk) 17:16, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
As much as I don’t think going out of your way to change the page was warranted, I have to agree. It’s ridiculous for precedents to be obeyed, bent, and broken when it’s convenient. --celadonk (talk) 18:34, 11 March 2019 (UTC)


Please stop removing the dub edit, if the dub removes or changes something from the Japanese version, its a dub edit, regardless of it being a move error.--BigDocFan (talk) 13:26, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

Apparently you did read my edit comment: Saturn never told it to use Teleport in the original. Even Bronzor's supposed use of Teleport is not noted on the Teleport page, Saturn's page, or even the anime move errors page. If it's not acknowledged elsewhere that Bronzor used Teleport in the Japanese version, then how can the dub edit something out that was not there in the first place?

Strange Eggs

About that edit on Strange Eggs the other day, Niantic confirmed that the Strange Eggs are permanent additions to GO. YoungMan16 (talk) 16:39, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for sharing. Sinjoh (talk) 19:21, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
