May I ask you?

On the main series regions articles, why did you remove each region's location in correlation with the other regions in the intro of each article? I think that info should be there. ZMT123 04:50, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Because it's speculation. Aside from Kanto and Johto, which are connected, there's no official source for the locations of those regions in relation to one another. Werdnae (talk) 04:36, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Actually, it is confirmed that Kanto and Johto are south and southwest (Johto being southwest) of Sinnoh. In the radio in HGSS, it refers to Sinnoh as "the great land to the north". ZMT123 04:50, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Ah, I see, in Sinnoh Sound. I was not aware of that. I'll that back into the articles then, thanks. It is generally better to provide the source in cases like this, so I'll put it in the articles. --SnorlaxMonster 07:43, 2 January 2012 (UTC)


Why did you delete my outdated section template in the sandbox? Mothim will rule all!-Wildgoose (and Dustox will too!) 15:14, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

You weren't doing anything there. You just pasted raw template code (minus the category). The sandbox is meant for testing templates; if you aren't testing anything, there is no need to use it. --SnorlaxMonster 15:15, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

TM34 (glitch Pokémon)

Please delete this, it doesn't exist. Thanks - unsigned comment from Rsrdaman (talkcontribs)

Thanks, although your ALLCAPS edit summary drew my attention to it anyway. However, I'm going to expand the article of the actual glitch Pokémon at Hex EB in Yellow before I do delete it, since it seems to be using some of its info. --SnorlaxMonster 05:54, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. When I saw that page I knew it was wrong immediately, data was from mixed sources, including the picture, I even tested it out on my Yellow version and knew that there was no possible way for it be be right. Sorry for being inactive for so long. I was sick as hell. Also, Is there anything recent to the Glitch area of Bulbapedia requireing any help with? --×Rsrdaman× 02:51, 13 January 2012 (UTC)


Which Pokémon moves first when they have both the same Speed and the priority of attacks? (Eg. Kyogre vs. Giratina, they have the same base Speed, so it's not that unlikely). Is it random? Marked +-+-+ 14:32, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Yes. --SnorlaxMonster 14:35, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Revision visibility

Can you please change revision visibility of this. -- ✔Poké.geek✔ 08:09, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Jimmy Zoppi

Please unprotect this. It's not fair to limit a page to admins forever. Also, I'm sorry about forgetting admin clearance when moving it, but what you did (protect it forever) is quite extreme. Now I know I do not have the power to boss you around, but please reconsider what you just did. サトシ 22:14, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Snorlax only protected it against moving. You are still welcome to edit the article, just not rename it. As Snorlax said, the protection will be lifted once a consensus on the title has been reached. —darklordtrom 04:19, 12 January 2012 (UTC)


When I was on the Rikako page, I noticed that she didn't have a dub name. Does Mrs. Mitchum count as a dub name as both her husband and daughter have Mitchum as the family name? PattyMan 23:50, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

I don't know. I brought it up on the talk page. --SnorlaxMonster 09:11, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Consensus for Carter Cathcart

As of now, the poll is closed, and Carter Cathcart has the most votes. Therefore, the consensus has been reached. Now you can unprotect the move tab. サトシ 02:26, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Never mind, we've extended it. サトシ 22:01, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I was away from Bulbapedia at the time. Looks like it turns out it didn't matter anyway though. --SnorlaxMonster 07:45, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon D/P/Pl Maps

Where did the overworld maps, like the ones in the info boxes of the Sinnoh Route 209 and Sinnoh Route 214 pages, come from? I'm guessing it was partially ripped with a specialized utility uploaded to a site. It could have been done by someone here that took the time to do a nice quality rip that was very time consuming but stopped after mid-way through. I tried looking on The Video Game Atlas and came up with nothing. I would like to see a replacement of that kind of quality for pages such as Sinnoh Route 210 and Sinnoh Route 213 and even pages such as Floaroma Meadow and Valor Lakefront. No more scans or snapshots.

If there is no way to know, I could help out any way I can. Just supply me with the right tools and I'll see what I can do!

I am playing through Pokémon Pearl Version for the first time just to correct for any errors along the way, using pages like that as a sort-of-guide (I have done a few edits along the way). --Wildgoosespeeder 05:18, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

The maps are a compilation of images of the route using manipulations to make them so that they are top down and trainerless. There isn't, as far as I'm aware, any utility for it. Just manual assembly of lots of screenshots. Werdnae (talk) 05:42, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
Heh, I thought through ROM hacking, you can easily get map data. Plus your explanation could have one complication to retain neatness. The game is angled, giving the world a 3D-ish look compared to previous Pokémon games. This means jaggedness could occur during reassembly. --Wildgoosespeeder 07:58, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
That's why you need to find a code to manipulate the display angle so that it's top down. Werdnae (talk) 08:10, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, they would get an oblique view of it. However, I also know a fair number of Sinnoh images are (or were) scans from game guides. However, these are not preferred to the usual method. --SnorlaxMonster 07:45, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
OK, what is the code to disable the 3D? Is it Action Replay triggered or is it the "internal" cheat engine that DeSmuME uses? To save time, I would like the complete game save please, if possible! --Wildgoosespeeder 03:53, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I really have no idea. I've never done so myself. You're better off finding a map someone has uploaded, finding out who the uploader is and asking them. Also, can you please avoid talking about emulators here. --SnorlaxMonster 08:25, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Emulators are legal, ROMs are a controversial area. I understand that. US copyright law states somewhere you can have back-ups of media you own legal copies of as long as they stay personal, or something to that effect. Copyright law in other countries vary. If you don't want me talking about it further than that, OK then, no more out of me. --Wildgoosespeeder 19:28, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I understand that emulators by themselves are legal, but let me quote the first page of the Pokémon White manual:

Copying of any Nintendo game is illegal and is strictly prohibited by intellectual property laws. Back-up or archival copies are not authorised and are not necessary to protect your software.

Essentially, they are specifically forbidding you from making copies of the game, even for personal use, even if it was not illegal without it. So you were implying that you would be running a Pokémon game on an emulator, which would require you to have an illegal ROM. Regardless, it's better to be cautious. --SnorlaxMonster 02:04, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
They may hate it but legally they may have no power over certain cases no matter what they may say. They could just be saying that just to ward off most potential violators. It is really iffy of the real legality of it, meaning who has the authority to say what is legal and illegal. Like I said, it's a very controversial topic. Best advice I have is if you really want ROMs, just download the ones you already own legal copies of. Don't distribute because that is infringement. People tend to do the opposite of those two guidelines and that is definitely illegal. --Wildgoosespeeder 05:58, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Random Pokémon

Hi,,,, I am really sorry that I copied the Random Pokémon stuff from you page without your permission. But I was so excited I created a Random Generation 1 pokemon tab here....Jaison Clinton Castelino 16:03, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry about it, I don't mind. --SnorlaxMonster 07:45, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Do You Always edit the Random pokemon stuff ?......Mine as too ,,,,,otherwise it will say the same Pokémon for ages....--Jaison Clinton Castelino 15:46, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
No, I don't; it is automated. What you have is probably a caching issue—try hard refreshing the page (Ctrl+F5 on Windows, don't know about other OSes) or purging the site's cache (click the clock). --SnorlaxMonster 06:52, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks--Jaison Clinton Castelino 06:55, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
It works --Jaison Clinton Castelino 08:19, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry to bother you again, How is the Talk page adaption ?--Jaison Clinton Castelino 09:19, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
Honestly, I don' like it. Putting random colors all over you talk page is not a good idea. For example, currently it is a blinding pink that makes reading your talk page very annoying. --SnorlaxMonster 10:37, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Description template.

According to this, Amnesia description doesn't differ in FireRed/LeafGreen (and it has to be true, since this covers up in 100% with what you entered into Splash's description), but there is no RSEFRLG, only RSE and FRLG. Marked +-+-+ 12:42, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Checked, it's true. Also, wtf GameFreak. ._.. Are you trying to make our life hard? Meh, okay... not changing between RSEFRLG is okay, since it's the same generation, and Gen IV/V is exception (since by that time there is enough time for description, and differs only in few cases like Aerial Ace), but this? This is pretty... strange, and happens to be true as well. Marked +-+-+ 13:06, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Forgot to say that there are moves that have the same description for both Stadium games, like Absorb. Checking Bide reminded me of that (since that move seems to also have the same description in both Stadium games). Marked +-+-+ 11:43, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Aaaand another. Meh. Marked +-+-+ 12:50, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Isamu "Red" Akai

On Isamu Akai's or Red's talk page, did he really have Venusaur and some of the other Pokémon? I left a message on that talk page two months ago but nobody responded. The same applied for Conkeldurr but it was left there for four months. I wanted to ask you since you were the last person to edit the page. PattyMan 17:53, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

No idea, I don't read the manga. I was just putting something Dogasu suggested on the forums (and I agreed with) on the page. --SnorlaxMonster 08:25, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

So when you undo an edit then preview the box is blanked upon previewing, or the text is still in the box but when you save the page is blank? --SnorlaxMonster 02:04, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

I just put myself into the usergroup to test it and it worked fine. The problem is on your end, not with the usergroup. IIRC, we had a user (who wasn't in the group) that had a similar problem on a mobile device because they didn't let it fully load before they clicked the button, and it hadn't loaded the text in the edit pane. Werdnae (talk) 05:31, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Do you know how the Egg Blackout Glitch is triggered?

Hi. You seem to be really nice and helpful with the games. I don't mind that help at all. About 2 months ago I was attempting a glitch with Pokemon Gold and Silver or Silver and Crystal as Gold doesn't work and it was the egg blackout glitch. It wouldn't let me trade the egg during a link trade as I only had one Pokemon. Then I thought the glitch was triggered by beating Falkner, then receiving an Egg with only Cyndaquil or Totodile, very hard to beat Violet gym with Chikorita and still no infinite blackout glitch. Do you know any other methods to get it to work? Since I'm not actually playing my gen 2 games. I'm experimenting with them now. (MichaelXD 20:06, 3 February 2012 (UTC))

This is where it came from. Have you tried obtaining an egg, then entering a trade with just your starter and an egg, then trading the starter for an egg? It should work, since you have two Pokémon. Or is that what you were saying you already did? --SnorlaxMonster 02:29, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

So I need to beat the gym leader in more than one version first, get the egg and only have my starter and egg in one version while in another version, I can have more than one Pokemon in the party? I asked this on Yahoo Answers and only got an answer that was chatting about something dumb instead of acknowledging the question. Also is the Brock Skip Gym side effects real or the side effects of using a cheating device? I got dumb answers for that too. (MichaelXD 11:35, 4 February 2012 (UTC))

I have no guarantee that it works, it is just my guess of how it might work. Any information you can add about that glitch is appreciated.
As for the Brock Gym skip, this video shows the infinite walk down. I've watched the whole run before (it's pretty cool), and they did not use any cheats, only glitches (as is mentioned in the credits). --SnorlaxMonster 12:21, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

I was actually trying to do this instead.

The game kept freezing on me and it only works on Red or Blue. No one answered and they assumed that just because I was trying to get a glitch to work, it's the same as cheating in a video game. Do I do this at school too? No it's not and thanks to those jerks, it's none of their business what I do at school. It's one I've been having a problem with for a while. (MichaelXD 14:47, 4 February 2012 (UTC))

There are glitches that sometimes freeze the game, sometimes don't. There are also sometimes variations between emulators and real games when it comes to glitches, but this is rare. --SnorlaxMonster 15:15, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

No it doesn't work. I keep getting "Too bad. The trade was canceled." I now have eggs on 2 games instead of just one and I did all my other trading first before attempting this glitch. (MichaelXD 19:51, 4 February 2012 (UTC))

I'm starting to think that that glitch might require cheating so that you start off with an egg. If you can't replicate it, please remove it and add a note to the talk page. --SnorlaxMonster 04:42, 5 February 2012 (UTC)


Do you have skype? I'd like to be able to talk about Pomeg sub-glitches in Gen IV without having to leave a huge trail of messages that take a long time between replies, if possible ;)

Thanks, OwnageMuch 09:42, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Well, I do have Skype, but I only use it for personal purposes, rather than Bulbagarden/Pokémon stuff. If you have AIM, I'd prefer to use that, but I can make another Skype account (which may be useful at other times too). Bulbawiki staff communicate with AIM, while forums staff use Skype. --SnorlaxMonster 09:47, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't have AIM, sorry :/. If you were planning on make another account then go ahead but if it's just to talk to me then it might not be worth your touble OwnageMuch 22:03, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
I wasn't going to, no. I may at some point in the future, but unless I can use the IM part of Skype through Pidgin, I probably won't get another Skype account. --SnorlaxMonster 04:42, 5 February 2012 (UTC)


Well, list all examples if you can. If I have to remind you, only Arceus are able to obtain Judgement, and lots of Pokemon can learn Snarl though TM. Your agrument is invalid, if I'm correct. So please spare me while I undo your undo. --Acellutor 04:19, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Snarl is currently only available via the event Zoroark. While there is a TM for it, it cannot be obtained yet, and will only be obtainable via event. Judgment applies because Arceus is event-exclusive, so so is Judgment. This also goes for all event Pokémon's signature moves such as Dark Void and Psycho Boost. --SnorlaxMonster 04:42, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Wayward Cave

To keep consistancy, why do pages like Eterna Forest, Iron Island, and Stark Mountain have the partner data included? --Wildgoosespeeder 07:17, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

I think you misunderstood. I only moved the data to a different place on the page. I was saying that Platinum data wasn't missing because it was already on Mira's page, and added it. Partner data should be there. --SnorlaxMonster 10:37, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
For more consistency, should it be moved to the top of the page like the others are in the pages mentioned? --Wildgoosespeeder 18:33, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't think Trainers belong under "Geography". Trainers that join you for just one battle rather than follow you are generally in the Trainers section, so I don't see why followers shouldn't be either. --SnorlaxMonster 06:33, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
These trainers you don't face in the areas you team up with them. Plus the other three pages are like that so why not include Wayward Cave with the same kind of deal? --Wildgoosespeeder 07:22, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, they use the Trainer backsprite to show that you don't battle them but they battle alongside you. However, I think the best alternative is to create a new section on the pages, rather than being a subsection of "Geography" or "Trainers". So just "==Mira==". I was suggesting that we change all five pages (I don't know which one of the stat Trainers you are forgetting, probably Marley). --SnorlaxMonster 07:34, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
It is my first playthrough Pokemon Pearl Version. I am both exploring a new storyline of Sinnoh and doublechecking Bulbapedia pages for accuracy. I had no idea there were five team-ups in the game, there was even have a fan term to them, and all cover one of all six stats except special defense. I wouldn't have picked up on that. Anyways, where would be a good logical place to put each stat trainer? How about between the geography and items sections? --Wildgoosespeeder 22:50, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
Directly before the "Trainers" section. --SnorlaxMonster 07:02, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Template:Infobox location

I think you should look at the talk page of Template:Infobox location. --Wildgoosespeeder 19:18, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Replied there. --SnorlaxMonster 06:33, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
OK. Thanks. Sorry I have been annoying you recently. --Wildgoosespeeder 07:19, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Image placement

Hi, I've uploaded the images of most of the rooms in Generation III ... at least all four main E4 members are complete. However, Sidney's section looks somewhat wonky (a lot of whitespace) because of the infobox pushing it down. Do you know how I can fix this, or would you like to do it instead? Haxorus 02:25, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

There's only only so much that can be don and keep it looking nice. I reduced the size of the images (there were a bit big anyway) and added some clears. Whitespace isn't always a bad thing, especially compared to infobox interference. --SnorlaxMonster 07:02, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Seen your changes, it looks much nicer now. Thanks a million! :) Haxorus 08:06, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Question about Snarl

Bringing up something posted on Zorua's talk page, since Snarl is currently only available by breeding, should it be added to the breeding learnlists? (I had added a breeding list for it on Snarl's page a while back.) XVuvuzela2010X 23:24, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I saw that earlier. My personal preference would be to add a note like * next to Snarl on the TM learnlist for all Pokémon that can learn it via breeding (chain breed-only Pokémon would need more detailed notes). Pokémon like Sableye who cannot learn it at all might deserve a note saying that they cannot currently know it due to the TM being unreleased. --SnorlaxMonster 23:47, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Don't forget to read my reply to your post on my talk. TheOriginalOne 21:57, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Again... TheOriginalOne 22:00, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

And again... TheOriginalOne 20:55, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Well... just to know if these messages are really necessary, does the system alert you to new messages when they are posted on other member's profile? Anyways, I've replied again. - unsigned comment from TheOriginalOne (talkcontribs)

I meant to mention this earlier. I don't get updates, but I do have your talk page on my watchlist, so I do see anyway. --SnorlaxMonster 07:23, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Archive pictures not updating?

I uploaded two updated files for P a while ago. Its sprite [1] and Pokédex entry [2]. They were resized to the size of the images I uploaded, but the actual new pictures aren't showing. Why is this?--×Rsrdaman× 00:53, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Well there working now. It was just odd that the server took over a day to update the pictures..--×Rsrdaman× 22:35, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
It's a caching issue. Purging the site cache (by clicking the clock) and your own cache (Ctrl+F5) generally can fix it if you wait a short while after uploading it. It is an annoyingly common issue. --SnorlaxMonster 09:14, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Mauville Game Corner table thanks and question

Thanks for organizing the reels list into a table! I'm thinking about whether I should reverse the rows, since the order is now visually upside-down from the reels in the game...but it might be harder to use that way? I'm guess I'm not sure if people will read Lotad above Azurill as "Lotad literally above Azurill" or "Lotad appears before Azurill".... I guess probably the former, but maybe not. AySz88 06:53, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I think that it would be better to flip them. --SnorlaxMonster 09:14, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Done; thanks for the feedback! AySz88 07:44, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

thank you

thank you very much for the articles relating to the Gen V games third version. Yamitora1 01:07, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Not sure what you're talking about. I haven't even edited since the revelation of BW2. --SnorlaxMonster 09:14, 27 February 2012 (UTC)


Also, about the trivia on Kyurem with the "extra data placeholder" it has, is it just empty, waiting for input? Because from what i've seen, it looks as though you could merge Kyurem and Zekrom/Reshiram. Would that make sense. Or more specifically, is that possible?--×Rsrdaman× 01:22, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Every Pokémon has one byte of data stating how many forms it has. For example, Meloetta has "2" and Rotom has "6" (Pt on). Pokémon that have no forms have the number set to "0" (e.g. Bulbasaur). Pokmon that have no forms, but later gain them have it set to "1" (e.g. DP Rotom, DP Giratina, DP Shaymin, BW Kyurem). I don't think merging makes any sense (if merging were going to be a mechanic, we would have seen it in Magneton and Slowbro by now). I think the Dark Stone will turn it into Black Kyurem, the White Stone into White Kyurem, and the God Stone into Normal Kyurem; however, this is just speculation. Anyway, if you have any further non-Bulbapedia-related topics you would like to discuss with me (such as the Missingno. video you added or speculating Kyurem's mechanic for changing forms), please use the forums. Also, I'm not sure why you had all those boxes in your message - either you used a character set I don't have installed or something encoded wrong.--SnorlaxMonster 09:14, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I read about that, Its just because the new forms are the two Pokémon together its odd that they wouldnt merge...
Oh, and about the boxes, its just no-space small characters that over-lap each other.
Last question: Can you still receive an award (i.e. golden mew) even if you only do work in a sub-project, like GlitchDex?--×Rsrdaman× 23:54, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
We haven't given out Golden Awards in a while... apparently there is another award method planned, but it hasn't been implemented. However, if we do go back to Golden Awards, you certainly can, but usually glitch editing goes unnoticed anyway. --SnorlaxMonster 07:51, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Unacceptable Username

For the user Assofababoon. --Pokemaster97 16:24, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

It's unacceptable because it has inappropriate language in the username. The Username policy clearly states that any usernames with inappropriate language in it will be immediately blocked. Pokedex493 19:19, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you were looking for. Pokedex493 19:21, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
I know that it's unacceptable, I brought it up so he can be delt with. Maybe the question mark was misleading, but I know the policy good and well. --Pokemaster97 20:56, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Looks like Kenji-girl got it. --SnorlaxMonster 07:51, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Chain Breeding

Good afternoon! There is this user named Akurochan who keeps removing from the list of chain breeding of several Pokémon. I went on his talk page and saw this post in which he said "Just removed chain breeding father list, as they are just make the table too long". Is it ok ? I wanted to revert the changes but I thought it is better if I ask an admin.----DJWolfy 09:16, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Only the most direct fathers are to be listed. Otherwise the lists would get extremely large and become difficult to read. Werdnae (talk) 20:05, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I understand. Thanks for clarifying.----DJWolfy 20:16, 4 March 2012 (UTC)


I came across this user a while ago and it struck me as suspicious because I knew about a website with the same name. I went onto the website and looked, and apparently somebody made an account on here with that username so anyone can use it. Is this against the rules? If so can this user be blocked? Pokedex493 19:50, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Most definitely not acceptable. If you see any more accounts like that, please report them. Werdnae (talk) 03:48, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
I will. Thanks for taking care of it. Pokedex493 03:57, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

BW animated sprites

Hi, would it be all right if I uploaded the animated sprites for Black and White in .gif format until someone can come along and upload permanent .png versions instead? I'm aware not many people would appreciate the crummy 256-color quality .gif images offer, but they're the only alternative until the whole set of 649 animated Generation V sprites can be drawn up in .png format. What do you think? Should I go for it, or simply leave them all unanimated as they are? Thanks for your time! Haxorus 04:23, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Due to the way templates are set up, they default to png, so even if the animated sprites were uploaded as gifs, they wouldn't be used anywhere. --SnorlaxMonster 11:38, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
The Archives to-do-list links to a gif to png converter, which you could try out. Though what dimensions are your sprites? All of our BW sprites are 96px by 96px. I would upload some of the spites I have, but I wouldnt know how to increase the white/transparent space to 96px without losing the animation. XVuvuzela2010X 00:36, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, both of you. Noted. And Vuvuzela, I think mine are also 96px by 96px, but I'll have to go back and check. Have a pleasant day, Haxorus 15:19, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Those glitch sprites and dex'es

Well, I was going to switch all of the glitch sprites and dex'es over to their proper naming systems*, but it said there was a permission error on the archives page. I guess that means that regular users can't move anything? Is it possible to let a specific user do that?--×Rsrdaman× 04:53, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, only Archives admins can move files. It is possible to give temporary powers, but we generally only do this at times where lots of files need to be moved quickly (e.g. BW English release, backsprite renaming). --SnorlaxMonster 11:37, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Wait a minute

So you told me before that the Gen I glitch Pokémon 251-254 can be obtained. But 251 is obtainable by Celebi? Also the other three are obtainable by the other ?????. Am i missing something?--×Rsrdaman× 23:39, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

There are issues in trading the Pokémon from Generation II to I. If you trade Celebi or a glitch Pokémon (????? and glitch Egg) with index 000 or 252-255, the resulting Pokémon in Generation I is not constant, and seemingly random. There must be something it is determined by, but at present that is unknown. I guess cloning a Pokémon and modifying various aspects of each clone with a cheating device individually and comparing the resulting Pokémon could indicate what determines it though. --SnorlaxMonster 05:57, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
Ah, ok. I can understand that for the glitch Pokémon. But the Celebi still confuses me. Why would it be different from any other Pokémon? I will check this out--×Rsrdaman× 13:26, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
Here's what the hex values look like. For whatever reason, 000 and 251-255 aren't defined (I guess those values refer to other things). As for why Celebi doesn't have a proper index number conversion, I have no idea. --SnorlaxMonster 22:22, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Category needed?

I don't think I've ever seen a page [need this] one. Frozen Fennec 23:46, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

It was primarily used when the party template was new. I have put it on Colo/XD pages in the past year, but now I think it really is unnecessary and something that only really mattered when the party template was introduced. --SnorlaxMonster 23:57, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
And [this one]? Don't think it's really needed since if an article needs rewording I'm sure most users will see that and fix it. Frozen Fennec 00:02, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Cleanup template could be substituted for it anyway. Thanks. --SnorlaxMonster 00:16, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Lastly wondering about this page. Seems rather pointless considering each episode page already notes these, why put them all on one big page? Frozen Fennec 00:22, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
That and maybe almost [anything here]? Frozen Fennec 00:24, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
This thread helps stuff like that actually get done. --SnorlaxMonster 10:22, 10 March 2012 (UTC)


Speaking of Candidates for deletion,one of my subpages says it's in the category, but when I go there, it's not listed. Do you know why that would occur? Truthseeker4449 01:58, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

That would be because it has a deletion tag on it. Werdnae (talk) 04:39, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
{{DeleteTimer}} puts pages in that category when it's expired. --SnorlaxMonster 10:22, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Another user?

Will put a welcome template on their page but not sure if this user is an actual user or a ad-bot. Frozen Fennec 02:31, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Seems legit enough to me. They just linked to their Pokémon Wiki, which is fair enough. --SnorlaxMonster 02:34, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
Ah, alright then. :) Frozen Fennec 02:37, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

help spam

Hi, I'm Wikinezka's Administrator. On the Wikinezka there is problem associated with spam. I saw that also appeared on Bulbapedia. But you deal with it quickly. Can you advise me how can I get rid of this problem? Pawel10s 17:16, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Well, we have more active admins, so we can delete them very quickly. Also, on Bulbapedia users who aren't autoconfirmed can't create pages, so we don't get bots creating spam pages; however, because you are smaller, you probably can't really afford to prevent that. You could prevent non-autoconfirmed users from making userpages (something we do too). I've seen smaller wikis set up blacklists, so you can't include words like "viagra" in pages (since this is a very common spammer word). --SnorlaxMonster 08:24, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for help.Pawel10s 08:31, 17 March 2012 (UTC)


Can a user protect his own page or talk page or only an admin is allowed to do so ?----DJWolfy 19:18, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Protection means that only admins can edit the page. Therefore, only admins can do so. Also, why would you want your user page and talk page protected? ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:30, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
My archived talk page of course.----DJWolfy 19:32, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Well, the only reason it will be protected is if there is a history of spam and vandalism on your archive, which there most likely is not. Therefore, there is no reason to protect it so it most likely will not be protected. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:35, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
@Solar Dragon. If a user requests for an archive to be protected it can be protected. It doesn't have to be spammed to be protected. I requested my talk archives to be protected at the autoconfirmed level and there was no problem doing that, so there should be no problem doing it for DJWolfy. Remember some people just prefer to have their archives protected. --Pokemaster97 19:39, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Talk page archives are usually protected, just sop nobody gets confused and tries to add a section to it. As for protection, only admins have the protect option. If you want to request your talk archive be protected, you can just add {{protect}} to the top and an admin will get to it (or contact one of us directly). DJWolfy, I've protected your talk page archive to auto-confirmed-only (so you can still touch it), as requested. I'd rather not do admin-only as that means even you can't touch it, but if you would prefer that, let me know. --SnorlaxMonster 05:51, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
No way, it is better the way it is now. Thanks Snorlax !----DJWolfy 12:02, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Pics of Oreburgh Gym etc: Advice needed

I'm coming to you here as I've been told you're the Bulbagarden Archives administrator. As one can see here, I recently added a full map of the gym's interior right next to a smaller screenshot, which I wasn't sure what to do with (which was why I left it there). Should I leave it or remove it outright (it already links to five other pages)? What do you think?

Also, a similar issue I'd like your help tackling is the image of the giant clock in Eterna Gym, which appears to have been set up as an image specifically that of the clock itself and nothing else. However, I would instead like to put up a full map of the gym's interior as it appears in Platinum, instead of a screenshot that's been cropped around the clock. Should I upload it as a brand-new file or upload it to replace the current version?

Many thanks. Cheers, Haxorus 05:54, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, the full image can replace the partial one. It appears that some Gyms/Gym Leaders have that, and some don't, but I think it is just unnecessary. I'll deal with the replacement/removal on other pages.
The image should be replaced with the full Gym screenshot. I'm assuming that the person who took the screenshot was using the regular DS screen size and decided that the clock would be the best thing to take a shot of. Replace the current one with.
Also, the way you phrased the opening paragraph made it sound like I'm the only Archives Administrator. I am one, but I'm not the only one. Anyway, I really appreciate the work you're doing to get those map screenshots; we've needed them for a long time, but never had anybody who both knew how to do them and had the time and initiative to actually upload them. --SnorlaxMonster 06:36, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Why, thank you :-) I do my best. About the admin thing, I did suspect you weren't the only one, but I went to you because of this, and also because I've sought advice from you before. That's pretty much why.
Per your advice, I have now replaced the image. Thanks. I'm also working on images for the other Sinnoh Gyms (Canalave will probably need a layout gallery à la Galactic HQ, but other than that, it's pretty much good to go). Cheers, Haxorus 09:50, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
On another thought, should I instead create a "between-versions" gallery for the gyms in Eterna, Veilstone, Hearthome, and Snowpoint like the one that's already present on, say, Mossdeep Gym? Cheers, Haxorus 09:55, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, a gallery like that would be good where there is a difference between versions. --SnorlaxMonster 11:51, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
I think it would look much better if they were side by side instead of stacking onto each other. It makes the page look long and awkward.--ForceFire 12:57, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable to me. Just as long as there is only one floor/room. --SnorlaxMonster 12:58, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Incidentially, I noticed your changes to the Pastoria and Sunyshore Gyms. My apologies and thanks for the cleanup. However, that does bring me to a new issue – how do you suggest I produce the layout for buildings whose number of floors differ between versions, such as the Global Terminal, which jumped from one floor in DP to 4 in PtHGSS? I'm planning to produce proper floor-by-floor maps to replace the ones currently existing and then follow up with a layout table. Cheers, Haxorus 01:42, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
DP and PtHGSS have separate sections, and in the PtHGSS section there are subsections for each floor. I suggest just putting the image from Dp in its section, and the PtHGSS images in the section for each floor. --SnorlaxMonster 06:51, 21 March 2012 (UTC)


Thank you so much for helping me in wellspring cave.Can you pls teach me how to protect my userpage and make teamboxes--Shravs (New Bark Gym) 07:56, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Only admins can protect pages, so you cannot protect your userpage. In regards to "teamboxes", this page is specifically designed to teach that. Also, please don't be so excessive with exclamation marks. --SnorlaxMonster 08:01, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Availability giltch Template

I made one for B/W 2 in my sandbox, so you can take the code from there when the time comes.--×Rsrdaman× 02:42, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

The current one is terible anyway. Redoing it is on my to-do list. --SnorlaxMonster 07:50, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

A short question

Can you help direct me to someone who can help me with technical advice regarding this site? I'm having some issues with the cache. Cheers, Haxorus 07:26, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Kogoro is the technical director. I assume she would be the most likely to be able to help you. --SnorlaxMonster 07:50, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Genesect not in the Pokédex?

My brother recently got an Action Replay for the DS and used a code to get a Genesect early. He told me that when he checked his Pokédex, Genesect wasn't listed anywhere. Can I get some insight on that and is it trivia-worthy? Pokedex493 17:24, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Did he have the National Pokédex? --SnorlaxMonster 07:50, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes he did. For a few months now. Pokedex493 18:54, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
My guess is that rather than hacking a wild one, he turned a Pokémon he already had into one, or replaced an empty party/box slot with one. Since the Pokédex only triggers when obtaining the Pokémon, this would cause that. If he were to trade it to another game and then back again, it should appear in the Pokédex. --SnorlaxMonster 01:17, 24 March 2012 (UTC)


Shouldn't there be an origin section for berries? I wanted to ask the project leader but he seems to be inactive.----DJWolfy 22:48, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Origin stuff is actually in the infobox. The name origin fruit and design origin fruit. --SnorlaxMonster 01:17, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh yeah, sorry, didn't notice it. Thanks !----DJWolfy 11:43, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Anotherbluejay&jimmy osirus

are writing un-sourced information and vandalism, respectively. Warn the former, and ban the latter, whose name I can't spell XD. Charlize de Rose and Herblalfusion are doing the same thing as Anotherbluejay. Herbalfusion got away with his un-sourced material and Usertalk Customizations in TTEchidna's day, but Magnedeth has a policy against such. Permablock Herbalfusion, and warn Charlize de Rose and Anotherbluejay not to imitate her.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 03:27, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Please calm down. While I do appreciate you alerting me of people breaking the rules, I do not appreciate you telling me how do to my job by telling me the type of punishment to give them. Jimmyo.sirus does deserve a warning first, but if he continues will receive a block. Anotherbluejay can receive a warning for adding information from the anime and using one specimen to give the behavior of the whole species, as can Charlize de Rose. Herblalfusion doesn't appear to have done it for a while, so there is no need to warn him right now. As for Herblalfusion's talk page, I personally don't like the non-chronological layout, but it is not currently breaking any rules, so permabanning for that is just outrageous. However, we are already planning to discuss modifying the talk page policy after MAGNEDETH gets back. --SnorlaxMonster 03:59, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I meant to say please. It slipped my mind. I didn't mean to be so intimidating. If you miss one word in key places, it messes up the whole statement. I meant to ask, and look what happened. Sorry.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 04:04, 24 March 2012 (UTC)


So there's this one User:Bennell who keeps modifying the Origin sections of Pokémon without any evidence to support it. Clearly you're aware of this. I mean he has good intentions and such, but could you please explain to him or something ? I wrote on his talk page but he seems to ignore me.----DJWolfy 14:21, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

They seem to have stopped removing stuff, and are using talk pages a lot more. I'll leave it for now, but don't hesitate to contact me if they resume making edits like on Bulbasaur's page. --SnorlaxMonster 07:23, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Sure will, actually just yesterday I've reverted some edits he done in the same day. ----DJWolfy 14:00, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

He did it again, this time on Suicune.----DJWolfy 17:08, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

And again today, on the same page.----DJWolfy 15:47, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
I have been away, but it appears that it has been dealt with. --SnorlaxMonster 10:38, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Good evening

Hello, SnorlaxMonster.

I was wondering what you think of this. I know you've seen this before and I have asked for your permission to use your template from your Pre-Release Generation 5 article. I was wondering if there's anyway we could improve the page and then set it up as a real article. I am shocked we STILL do not have articles for Pre-Released Pokemon for each of the generations (at least from 3rd to 5th generations). Han Ji-Wan 03:43, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

If we could combine our pages, we might have a case to mainspace it. I'll get around to it soon. Anyway, I do know of people who specialize in beta content, and I'll see if they can help us out with Gen II release order (although this will be quite approximate; however, the Official Pokémon Handbook #2 certainly helps). In the meantime, maybe add some links to the dates you have? I know they might not be Bulbanews articles, but for times when it says "leaked magazine scan", if you could get that scan, it would be great, etc. The reason I made the Gen V one when I did was because I knew that even if we didn't want it at the time, it would be a lot easier than trying to find it out later (like what we're trying to do with Gens II-IV). Don't even bother with Gen I though; that information is gone, I'm sure of it. --SnorlaxMonster 07:23, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Great news! I found all of the dates thanks to I'm not sure if it is okay to link to Serebii. If it is, do I just link to the general main page of Serebii or the exact page where I got the information? I will try my best to find some scans to go along with the reveals, although some of the scans are missing on Serebii. Han Ji-Wan 14:12, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Probably better if you don't link to Serebii. Not everything needs a link, but if some stuff could have some, that would be great. Don't forget that Bulbanews has most—if not all—of the Gen IV releases anyway, so you can link there. Take a look through Category:New Pokémon (you'll probably want to look at specific months or years, not the whole thing). --SnorlaxMonster 11:04, 30 March 2012 (UTC)


Are you sure ? I mean, estethically looks so much better. Plus there have been non-end pointed sentences before I started editing the remaining ones.----DJWolfy 07:20, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

There is kind of a mix of both, and I've asked Kenji-girl about it before, and we agreed that it's better to not terminate the sentence with punctuation within episode titles. --SnorlaxMonster 08:07, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok I'm a bit confused, from what you said I understood that it is ok to remove the punctuation when there is a question or exclamation mark ? Correct me if I'm wrong.----DJWolfy 09:54, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
No, I said the opposite. That punctuation like question and exclamation marks within episode titles do not affect the rest of the sentence, so if the title is at the end of a sentence and ends in a question or exclamation mark, you still need a period (or question or exclamation mark theoretically, but I don't think this would happen) to terminate the sentence. --SnorlaxMonster 09:59, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I get it now. Well then, from now on, I shall remove no more the punctuations.----DJWolfy 10:26, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

You might wanna take a look at this [[3]] more specifically at Dander's revision. I wanted to revert it but I thought it is better if you find out first.----DJWolfy 12:43, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Did I accidentally deleted the content ? I meant to move it to other section.----DJWolfy 14:26, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, but I could tell what you were trying to do. --SnorlaxMonster 14:28, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, actually I did a Cut to it as I typed the other section and forgot to Paste it.----DJWolfy 14:30, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Wi-fi Plaza glitch

Hi, it's TheOriginalOne! Remember me, from the GB Sounds glitch? Well, looks like I have discovered another one. I understand it can be difficult for you to exploit it, as you'll have to do it at exactly the right moment: I've just managed to do it 2 or 3 times, so that it may be a need for research. You'll have to do the following:

  • Go to the Wi-fi Plaza;
  • Run in the direction of a player which is about to warp out of that place.

If you manage to reach him/her ~1 second before he/she warps out, the two graphics will be mixed until the player warps out. YES, I have a fine Internet connection. Please try it and PM me the results of this weird glitch. TheOriginalOne 11:30, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

I tried it, but it is really hard to get the timing right, and it is really just connection lag, not so much a glitch. --SnorlaxMonster 10:38, 10 April 2012 (UTC)


May I add Romanian in the "in other languages" section of articles ?----DJWolfy 19:34, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Only if it is an official translation (i.e. the games/manga/TCG are translated or the anime is dubbed into it by a Nintendo/TPCi-afiliated company). Werdnae (talk) 19:58, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
Of course.----DJWolfy 19:59, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Glitch Pokémon species images

Can we have something for that in the Glitchdex naming conventions? Some Glitchémon like 7PkMn 'v and gJ1 have really long and impossible-to-type species, it would make things a lot faster and easier for me.--×Rsrdaman× 23:10, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Do what you do for glitch Pokémon names: only take typographical characters. So for example, 7PkMn 'v's would be
 L Ib  y23' 0"

--SnorlaxMonster 07:42, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Well, because of what we are doing for glitch names, I was thinking like a things for the species. Just doing what you said really cuts out on alot of it.--×Rsrdaman× 14:46, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
While we could use images, the species are fairly minor, and the image of them is already in the Pokédex entry, which is also included on the page. I don't see any need for images. --SnorlaxMonster 14:51, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Well you could say that for their names and sprites, as the Pokédex has them too. But I understand you, continuing with work now....--×Rsrdaman× 05:01, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

More Hiragana in English games?

Well after looking at the tile sets of the Gen-I games, I think I see ぃ and ぅ in them. Is that Japanese or just parts of something else?--×Rsrdaman× 05:41, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

ぃ is the Japanese character for 'I', and ぅ is the Japanese character for 'U'. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 06:17, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I know that Jo, Im just wondering if what I see in the tilesets are in fact Japanese, or just blocks of something bigger.--×Rsrdaman× 16:45, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure those are the actual Japanese characters. --SnorlaxMonster 10:38, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Ash's Lapras

Ash caught Lapras off-screen, and wasn't shown actually capturing it. However, Ash was shown in the 2nd Gym Match to be throwing a Pokéball to bring out Lapras. 태권도 합기도 11:38, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Okay, that's probably the source of my confusion. --SnorlaxMonster 11:39, 11 April 2012 (UTC)


There was also the time where Caroline's Glameow used Fake Out on Dawn's Piplup in the Diamond and Pearl Special. 태권도 합기도 12:17, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

But did it actually flinch from this, or just get sent flying backwards? --SnorlaxMonster 12:23, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Instead of attacking, Piplup froze and fell down after Fake Out was used. What would that sound like to you? It's a tough call. 태권도 합기도 12:27, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
I haven't actually seen the episode being Japanese-only. In the Chimchar one, Brock actually commented on the fact that it was flinching. Did a similar thing happen here? But that certainly does sound like flinching. --SnorlaxMonster 12:29, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Dawn just had a surprised look on her face, nothing more. I meant to say Johanna instead of Caroline, I seem to get those two mixed up some times. 태권도 합기도 12:46, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
The flinch from the Fake Out scenes in DP177 and SS024 were pretty much the same. Glameow makes Piplup flinch, and that clap thing happens. Pics of Zoey's, Johanna's. If you can't watch SS024, there's DP177. -tc²₆tc26- 13:09, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Gym Leader

How long will the page still be locked ? ----DJWolfy 14:46, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Until we get more info on the gym leaders in BW2. (How many are the same, etc.) If there's something that needs to be changed on the page in the mean time, feel free to leave an edit request on the talk page. Unfortunately, with early info too many people add speculation if it isn't protected. Werdnae (talk) 20:42, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Actually it is, could you add the romanian name for it ? It's "Șef de Arenă". Thanks ! ----DJWolfy 23:11, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Brock in SuperEffective

I added the stuff to his page because I was getting the page up-to-date. It looks like Brock's appearance in the webcomic wasn't needed after all. The good news is that the images of his two Pokémon from the webcomic weren't uploaded. PattyMan 17:27, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, we only put official stuff on pages other than the page for the fanwork itself. We don't need fanworks in "appearances" sections. --SnorlaxMonster 17:31, 22 April 2012 (UTC)


It's a bit off-topic but since Project Pokédex focuses on all the Pokémon shouldn't there be a leader ? At least this way, we the participants could discuss with him/her about the incomplete Biology sections. ----DJWolfy 18:35, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Because of how central Project Pokédex is to the wiki itself the leader of that project is the Editorial Board. Any significant changes to the species articles should be suggested to a member of staff, and discussed among staff, including the Editorial Board before any decision is made. Werdnae (talk) 20:14, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh, that explains it.----DJWolfy 11:56, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
I know that we've mentioned this on talk pages before, but maybe it would be beneficial to put this on the project page, so users know who to ask (the Editorial Board). --SnorlaxMonster 12:47, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
Agree.----DJWolfy 12:50, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

EP040 & 038

Hi, I'd like to know why you removed my edits, also, I'm wondering why the word Encore is omitted from the episode's title, as I have seen many converging sources that list it as an encore special, including and Thanks --Whadaheck 19:57, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. Turns out we'd just been missing the "encore" part of the title. I don't know if it was never aired because of this though. --SnorlaxMonster 03:13, 25 April 2012 (UTC)


It was more like a forced appearance, since it didn't wandered around the land, it only appeared as being cropped from a clip and added to a moving green background along with others... Plus as I've discussed with Kenji, photos, engravings and this kind of appearances don't count as debuts, only as appearances, since it's not like a physical appearance. M07's debut section also doesn't list it. Hope this clarified. I won't modify it untill you agree.----DJWolfy 13:49, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

I haven't seen the movie, I was just following the page. Sounds like it shouldn't count as a debut then (although I think it should have some kind of note). --SnorlaxMonster 13:52, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
I don't know... it's not the only Pokémon to do so (silhouette of Groudon in AG036, silhouettes of both Palkia and Dialga before their real appearance)*.----DJWolfy 14:03, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
I meant a note on the episode/movie page itself. --SnorlaxMonster 14:10, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
Beats me, you could add it at the bottom I guess, I mean, that's what the Note section is for. But it should also be added for similar situations. Anyhow, I wonder.. Why isn't there a Manual of style for Anime and Games and only for Manga ? I mean, let us be sincere, the games and the anime are the foundation of Pokémon.----DJWolfy 14:37, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
Because Project Manga was happy with their MoS, while Anime and TCG are still in progress. Nobody's started a Games one yet (I assume it will be whoever takes over as Head of Games that will do it). --SnorlaxMonster 14:57, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Oh right, but why weren't the two vacant places occupied by now ?----DJWolfy 19:02, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Well, Werd was promoted not that long ago, and Maverick Nate essentially still acts as the head of TCG. We tend to handle promotions all at once, so I assume it would be done when we hire a new batch of JAs. --SnorlaxMonster 08:29, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
And when is that going to take place ?----DJWolfy 11:26, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
When we feel it is time for a staff drive; there is a large number of people we would like to promote; or we enter wiki lockdown for a new main series release and temp-promote some regular users to edit while the wiki is locked, then some keep their powers and become staff members*. We haven't actually discussed this, this is just my observations of traditions. --SnorlaxMonster 11:33, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Interesting, and how about the Bulbawards ? What happened to them ?----DJWolfy 11:35, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
...good question. They were meant to be replaced with a new-and-improved system, but I don't know what it is and have never seen any progress on it. The EB might know. --SnorlaxMonster 11:43, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
That's bad... ----DJWolfy 11:44, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Can i vote?

I'm newbie here. I joined a few weeks ago and I'd like to know if I can support a featured article candidate? Can u pls help me?Auraguardian197 07:50, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Technically yes, but we feature articles anymore due to the new system you see on the main page, where we just summarize a random page. --SnorlaxMonster 08:29, 27 April 2012 (UTC)


I've got quite a few Pokémon pre-Generation V who are missing some parts on their biology. I've completed some of them but I don't know how to complete the rest. Should I write them ? Maybe you'll give me some tips. ----DJWolfy 19:48, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Nevermind that, I'll be inactive for a couple of days so here is the list if you want to take a look.

If you have the time and the desire for it, these are the incomplete pre-G5 pkmn. About Kirlia and Gardevoir's habitat, I thought it should be take in consideration that unlike its pre-evo Ralts, they do like to stay in the company of humans, since it is mentioned in Ralts' habitat. Well, catch you in a few days ! ----DJWolfy 01:26, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

I also included the direct links to the incomplete sections.----DJWolfy 01:27, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Well, I'm back, got any luck with them ? Or I could complete them if you'd give me some tips or send me to the right person I guess...----DJWolfy 10:16, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
I really only work of Pokédex entries. If the Pokédex mentions nothing about its habitat, I leave it blank. --SnorlaxMonster 15:58, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Roaming Legendaries

Could it just be my games then? Every time I've played them, all I've had luck with is those two routes, and they would always appear after a lengthy time. 태권도 합기도 10:57, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

They will always appear on any route after a long time. The advantage of the two routes you listed is that they are directly connected to other routes, so you're not going in a building and unable to encounter them for one of the two stages. --SnorlaxMonster 11:00, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

doubt about shinies.

I just read the article about shiny pokemon and I have a doubt. It says the chance of encountering a shiny pokemon (except red gyarados) in Gen 2 is 1/8192. So,is the article suggesting that shiny pokemon are comparatively easier to obtain in other generations?Auraguardian197 15:18, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

The chance is also listed as 1/8192 in other generations too. Although in Generation II it can become more likely when breeding tactically in Generation II, and using the Masuda method in Generation IV and V can also increase the odds. --SnorlaxMonster 15:57, 28 April 2012 (UTC)


Why would he write something like this? I doubt it would get him nowhere as he already received one for continuously editing tournament-related articles. PattyMan 16:02, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Not really sure. I just noticed that he sent me an email, and he says he doesn't understand talk pages, so I've tried to help him out. --SnorlaxMonster 16:27, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

will it work?

I'm playing Black and I have tornadus. I'm planning to use a cheat to catch thundurus. Can i use this thundurus to catch Landorus????? Pls help.Auraguardian197 07:28, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

No idea, sorry. --SnorlaxMonster 15:51, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Flying-types and Dig

I'm not really sure who to bring this question to, but I feel like you might have an answer for me. I've recently started playing my Blue Version again, and while grinding my Pokemon in Diglett's Cave, I've noticed that when I use my Butterfree and Golbat, and the Diglett use Dig, it always says the attack misses, instead of 'It doesn't affect Buterfree...' like it does with my Pidgeotto and Gyarados. Do you know if this is mentioned anywhere, or if it should be stated in a Trivia somewhere? Littlmiget123 13:30, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

See here. It is just Generation I outputting dodgy messages. The effect is still the same. However, before the article didn't say that if it was not very effective against one of the types while the other is immune it would also say that it missed (as is the case with Butterfree), so you actually helped expand it too. --SnorlaxMonster 13:37, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Wow, I didn't know there was a page dedicated to the glitches. XD I looked everywhere I could to see if it was in the Trivia section of anywhere, but I wasn't sure if it was somewhere else. Thanks for answering my question, and I'm glad I could help expand it slightly. ^-^ Littlmiget123 13:47, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
It's also on type chart (which is where I moved it from); if it eventually gets merged into type, that info will presumably be moved to there. There's actually quite a lot of pages for glitches, but I made these lists of glitches by generation to make the glitches nice and organised. I assume you knew about Project GlitchDex though, and just didn't realize these pages existed? --SnorlaxMonster 14:03, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Of course, but I thought all the glitches were on one collective page instead of a whole page dedicated to the glitches from Generation I. But, then again, I guess that it would be a bit crowded if all the glitches from every game was on one page. Thanks for adding my information onto the pages. I'll be honest, I wouldn't really know how to incorporate my information into the article. XD But your way works just fine. ^-^ Littlmiget123 14:32, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
They actually used to be all on one page under the name list of minor glitches, but it got so long and disorganized it was broken up into each generation and spin-off glitches. Anyway, since you brought my attention to the glitch, I found the full list of the order it prioritizes the effectivenesses, so I've added the table to the page. --SnorlaxMonster 14:52, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

userpage help

When I clicked on the my userpage link the page said that bulbapedia does not have an article auraguardian197(my useraccount) and it also said u r editing ur userpage. Does this mean I can edit my userpage? If so pls giv me some tips/notes. Pls help. I really need ur help.Auraguardian197 16:12, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

It looks like you've figured this out yourself based on your response below, so I won't bother telling you (but I've responded to EdwardV so you can read that if you need to, and if you have further questions you can ask me). --SnorlaxMonster 08:50, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure if I can edit my page because i think i've not made that many mainspace edits. That's why i need ur help. And i need some help regarding usertags. I'd really like to help in everything that i know about pokemon.So pls help.Auraguardian197 10:09, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

If you are not autoconfirmed, a message will pop up on your userpage telling you that you actually cannot edit it. I just checked your userrights, and you are auotconfirmed, so you can edit your userspace (you can check your own userrights by going to Special:Preferences). You can edit your userspace as long as you balance out those edits with mainspace edits. In regards to usertags, I reccomend reading this. If you know something that is not currently on the wiki, feel free to add it. --SnorlaxMonster 11:41, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank u very much.Auraguardian197 14:54, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Will clicking "Restore all default settings" reset my signature to default i.e.the signature I had before making the new one? Also if i make 3 usertags in my user in one day all at once,would that be considered as 3 edits or 1 edit?Auraguardian197 15:41, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

I don't know about the first one (I would suggest copying your signature first), but I assume it would. As for the second question, it would count as three. --SnorlaxMonster 13:19, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank u.Auraguardian197 14:30, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Userpage permission help

I am denied permission to edit my user page and the documentation says to ask a staff member. Can you help me or refer me to the correct person? Thanks. EdwardV 16:44, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

U should read the faq page. That should help u. If u r a new user u can only edit ur userpage after editing some articles. Hope this helped!Auraguardian197 17:03, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Before you can edit your userpage, you must first make a certain number of edits and have your account for a certain amount of time. Both of these are quite small, but also secret so users don't just make that exact number of edits and wait that amount of time then only edit their userpage. You can read more on the userspace policy page, or as Auraguardian197 suggested, check the FAQ (your welcome template is a good place for help too). --SnorlaxMonster 08:50, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Abyssal Ruins - Layout images

I wish I would be able to add game screenshots. Although 1, I don't know how, 2, I'm not able to do this, 3, I talked about this with Adyniz who said "If you have access to the game, would it be possible for you to get the actual images of the floors and not a fanmade art? I would really appreciate it." In which he doesn't say I can't do it, just that "if I can do better, I should." Sadly, he also didn't respond to my next question. Can you?

What I think is: "This is better than nothing for those that want to easily navigate everything and want everything." Bramako 18:32, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

That's exactly what I think. Ideally they would be game screenshots, but since neither of us can get them, those will do for now. --SnorlaxMonster 08:50, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Additions to biology sections

So if I had to add those things to the Biology section, I also have to mention about Professor Oak's Pokemon Live Caster from the end of the anime in Best Wishes? Or are we only allowed to use the data from the Pokédex? Baobao 23:03, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

It's fine to use other stuff like Oak's Lecture/Live Caster info, just make sure that specify where it's from if it's not the Pokédex. --SnorlaxMonster 08:50, 3 May 2012 (UTC)


If a page is edited prior to my reversion of an edit that was prior to the newest edit, how do I revert to that particular edit, or do I just edit the current page to remove what was added in? 태권도 합기도 13:55, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Well, sometimes, if only sections were edited in both cases, the "undo" button will still work. Failing that, you can go back in the history and edit the older revision, copying what you want to keep from it and paste it into the new one (or copying stuff from the new one and pasting it into the old one). --SnorlaxMonster 14:02, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Okay thank you. Sorry about accidentally posting on the userpage instead of your talkpage. 태권도 합기도 14:04, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Bronzong BW

According to this video, Bronzong's eyes do not flash, but are closed or something similar. Just look at sleeping Bronzong, the eyes are white all the time. Marked +-+-+ 19:07, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Just because they glow white when asleep doesn't mean that they are closed. Bronzong, being what it is, does not appear to have the ability to close its eyes. --SnorlaxMonster 13:19, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

List of Pokémon with unreleased Hidden Abilities

Hey. Moved to my user space, still had the code (thanks for offering). The reason why I felt the list would be useful was because of the mons without Hidden Abilities at all. As such the list wasn't exactly the reverse of the existing one; people would need to check and compare three existing articles (full list, list of released, category of those without hidden abilities) in order to figure out what's still to come. If you already considered that, it's fine. - Tycho 05:27, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

  • edit: whoops, I didn't realize you'd already put it up on my user talk page. Sorry. I also should've checked to see you were the same user as the forum poster, I guess then you did consider my extra explanation already. When I read the forum post to me it was just one poster's opinion rather than something discussed by admins. Yeah, I'm pretty new here. Anyway, sorry. :D - Tycho 05:31, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
At the time I made the forums post I hadn't discussed it with other admins, but I did when I deleted your article. Don't worry, I didn't expect you to realize I was an admin when I commented anyway; I prefer to give my opinion as a member rather than impose it as a staff member, unless I discuss it with other staff members and they agree. --SnorlaxMonster 05:39, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

evolving eevee into umbreon

In the article about umbreon,it is mentioned that in order to obtain umbreon in Firered and Leafgreen,eevee has to be traded to ruby,sapphire or emerald. But how is it possible because it is given that there are no cosmetic changes whatsoever when it is 'night' ? So can u pls tell why it is mentioned ? If u cant help can u pls tell me whom to ask?Auraguardian197 13:57, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

While "night" and "day" do not make everything dark or light, when you start your game you set a clock in your bedroom. This clock is then kept going by the game's internal battery, and this time is used to determine whether it is night or day. It is also used to control time-based events like the daily lottery drawing, Mirage Island, weekly Return/Frustration TM in Pacifidlog, etc. --SnorlaxMonster 14:00, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
