Happy birthday to me!

Don't bug me unless it's really urgent okay?

Urgent! This just in! It's TTE's birthday, I just heard. Congrats. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 17:15, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Big news

MY friend called nintendo to get his wii fixed and to tell them about new silver and gold games, they said they wher eon their way, they said they are thinking about dusk(gold) and dawn(silver) when the anime goes to the sinnoh battle frontier, also that their will be pokemon ranger 3 out after mystery dungeon 3!!!!!!!! totoRulz 20:31, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Two days late, dude. But funny. NoA wouldn't tell you shit, to put it bluntly. TTEchidna 00:11, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

I am seriostotoRulz 16:05, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

If you don't have a recording of the conversation then you won't get anywhere with us. Sorry. We're waiting for the April CoroCoro to tell us what you just told us anyway. Two weeks never killed anyone.--RexRacer 16:22, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

I was asked to change my username

And Kogoro asked me to contact a bureaucrat to get it changed. I'd say it's urgent enough as she tells me to get it done within 48 hours.

(Funny that earlier, your talk page said "view source" but NOW it says "edit this page.")

I request that it gets changed to User:Tanaka Shimoya. Thanks. --Elohssa Naer'uoy 05:16, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Was protected earlier since I just archived it. And I wanted to keep it from getting birthday bombed. No birthday wishes to me, please, I already get a clogged-enough talk. TTEchidna 08:07, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
As much as I like being controversial, I think it might be a good idea to request a name change to Ampere, as I've gotten some rap about my current one. Apologies if it's proper etiquette to make your own section for this. Captain Skank 02:21, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

MisterE13's griping corner

As long as it's on your current talk page. Also, I don't think you noticed my explanation of the Cherrim one. I noticed that Cherrim's template was calling for 2 minisprites and figured that while it needs re-coding, I could fix one up that displays the bud sprite before the bloomed one.--MisterE13 02:21, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

There is no bloom minisprite. TTEchidna 04:44, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
That's why I made it and, like I said, since it was going to need re-coding, the regular sprites order should be changed to be more logical.--MisterE13 21:02, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Made it? What do you mean made it? TTEchidna 21:09, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Template:Sprite/4/2formes/1mini. I just made it because we currently have Cherrim's page trying to display minisprites for both its forms (one of which doesn't exist). Knowing that this would entail some re-coding of the template, I figured I'd make a new one that shows both regular sprites in a more logical order which would also make said coding easier.--MisterE13 01:11, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
That's due to the bottom part of the coding. Which I gotta fix. TTEchidna 03:28, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
And when you do that, you will have to set up a new option for the variable "gender" (ie. 2formes1mini) and since that is being done, you can also make it to display that new spritebox design (with the other order). If this is still a bad idea, feel free to remove that one from the list (which is still pretty hefty.)--MisterE13 20:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Gender? Minisprites don't vary on gender. TTEchidna 21:03, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Gender is the variable in the sprite template which controls the number of forms (ie.: Arceus coding says "gender=18formes"). A new option for this variable (such as 2formes1mini) will have to be identified to display only one minisprite. While you're doing this, this very same variable could display my new template. Or, if its really a bad idea, just delete it.--MisterE13 01:22, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
I'll see what I can do. Sprite template's always been the least of my worries, since we don't even have all the sprites yet... TTEchidna 01:38, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Although, especially for side games where we currently have like no templates to show different sprites, people might not know we want them. I know you're busy with Platinum and the servers but I thought I'd mention it.--MisterE13 21:30, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes yes yes. I'll get to fixing it very very soon... if we can stabilize Pedia. TTEchidna 21:51, 1 April 2009 (UTC)


I have just been informed that my little brother has an inactive account by the name of "Alec99", and since your "Mister Super in Charge Guy," I would be pleased if you should rid of it.--alec9 * - * 12:38, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Wikis can't get rid of accounts. Just leave it be and don't log in and you're fine. TTEchidna 19:24, 11 March 2009 (UTC)


Yeah that PalletShipping is a load of bullshitMr.Yellow 23:49, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Uh... what does that have to do with...

a) this conversation b) anything that shouldn't be on the forums? The Dark Fiddler - Is teh Pedia laggin 4 u 2? 23:51, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

So what's "Shipping" exactly? Mr.Yellow 00:12, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

GEE I DUNNO. WE MIGHT HAVE AN ARTICLE. TTEchidna 00:16, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Just a last question

Just a last question, did you find any hint?- unsigned comment from Mr.Yellow (talkcontribs)

Dude, I barely watched AG. I've got no idea. TTEchidna 01:20, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi, long time no see. So how can I assist in Platinum updates both before and after release? --Bulbapedian - Talk 20:15, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

I am getting the game on the day it comes out, so it is possible for me to help out early on. --Bulbapedian - Talk 20:17, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
So am I, don't you worry. I'll be able to test new things ASAP. Like Giratina's Origin Forme... I plan to have that tested by that Saturday. TTEchidna 20:19, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, be sure to have a thread for it. You can also message me here for more convenient responses. --Bulbapedian - Talk 20:21, 16 March 2009 (UTC)


Due to the spading that occured, do we add damage categories for Shadow moves? ht14 21:19, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

I've suggested that to Jioruji Derako (the creator of the new template) he was unsure, however, about the use of the same category names for them.--MisterE13 21:50, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Sure. TTEchidna 22:29, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
The template will need some fixing by an admin then.--MisterE13 00:46, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
All done!--MisterE13 02:26, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Pluto... a plutoid. New heading. ht14 06:26, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Dwarf planet first, plutoid second. TTEchidna 15:28, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
It should be stated then that both are in the article... ht14 20:50, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
On Wikipedia? Well screw that. That'd be like saying that Mars isn't a planet, but a terrestrial planet. Jupiter and Saturn are gas giant planets rather than just planets. It's just a far more specific term, and most people are more familiar with the planet thing. "Plutoid, what the heck is that?" As much as I love astronomy, we're supposed to be the authority on Pokémon... TTEchidna 22:14, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
No. I didn't get it from Wiki. I'm not referring to that...talking about THIS article...but, Pluto is. Plutoid is a new generalization... ht14 01:20, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Don't make me get out my planet flag. TTEchidna 02:15, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
I won't. There was an official article though that was talking about it. I learned of the demotion about 2 years ago...then last year, they came up with a new name... ht14 02:19, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
They demoted it immediately to dwarf planet, alongside Eris. TTEchidna 02:32, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Really? That's news. ht14 03:12, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Yep. Then Ceres and Makemake joined them. Then Haumea came along. TTEchidna 03:17, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

So what happened to the name plutoid? Did it just...disappear? ht14 03:18, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Specific type of body that's like Pluto in orbit and other characteristics. Like terrestrial planet. Similar to the Earth in characteristics. TTEchidna 03:25, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Got it. So now the term can't be used on Pluto, but only on those that are Pluto-like, correct? Or is the word obsolete now? ht14 03:28, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Pluto's as much a plutoid as Earth is a terrestrial planet. It's just that the supercategories of planet and dwarf planet mean more. TTEchidna 03:31, 18 March 2009 (UTC)


Pages...can only the user know which ones are watched, or can admins see that? ht14 04:23, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Well there's likely some way we could by going into the database, but from what I can see, it's not accessible from outside sources via strict wikicode. TTEchidna 04:36, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

TCG (game)

I haven't noticed any standards set in place for the TCG video game, yet. I'm curious to know what jurisdiction it falls under seeing as it's a video game of the card game (just to avoid conflict and confusion). Personally, I think it should be primarily considered a video game, and the TCG part should be secondary and merely referential. TCGdex has it's own section, and direct intervention of the actual TCG ruins the cohesion and integrity of the articles specific to the video game.

Also, I recently uploaded a complete collection of the TCG1 card sprites, and I'm slowly updating the info relevant info little by little. How do I go about making templates for the sprites so I only have to put in a compressed code? Thanks. Kusanagi87 13:50, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Spotless Gen III Spinda?

Here, for Spinda's Gen IV sprites, we use the ones that were programmed into the game (for an impossible personnality value of 0) and serve as placeholders. I thought it might be interesting to manually remove the spots from a Gen III Spinda's face. Although I know that it is technically fan-made, we could perhaps use this as Spinda's Gen III sprite. Image:Spinda.png--MisterE13 18:41, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm always against any fan-mades. If it was an anime Pokémon, we could use a fan-made sprite, but in the case of games, we use only official sprites. I think TTEchidna will agree with me. --Maxim 19:06, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm sure it'd be possible to just rip it straight out a rom.. if there's one anywhere around.. Gywall Talk 19:24, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
I don't think spotless here was programmed into Gen III (although it is in Gen IV) which is why I made it.--MisterE13 19:26, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Going through the ROM for Emerald, I uncovered the sprite.. Un-animated, but it contains no spots: Image:Spindaraw.png Gywall Talk 19:35, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
That's what we should have. Heck, if you took the current one we've got and took off the spots, it'd be good. Just make the background transparent, please. Also, a PV of 0 isn't impossible, it's just as unlikely as a PV of 69,248,298. TTEchidna 20:38, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Emerald animated might be tricky.--MisterE13 01:35, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Not really. It just bounces around. Doesn't even have two frames that I can see. TTEchidna 01:39, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Hey, On the subject of spinda. Could you notify me when you make the sprite transparent? Wynaut? 22:47, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

When I do? Get GIMP on your own, dude. I'm playing Platinum here. TTEchidna 05:24, 27 March 2009 (UTC)


Is this ok? Besides the spacing thing anyway... ht14 23:12, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Aside from you not changing the type on the footer to Fighting, yes. TTEchidna 23:13, 18 March 2009 (UTC)


Since the page is locked, a few changes need to be made. The first sentence doesn't list his Japanese name like all other character articles. Also, the trivia you added today, should that be a little more specific? Pluto is now called a dwarf planet (as stupid as that it). --HoennMaster 01:46, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Blahhhh. People will be making a billion edits come the 22nd. Gimme a freaking sec. TTEchidna 01:48, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
LOL, thanks. --HoennMaster 10:37, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Disney sucks. TTEchidna 17:09, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
True. It's too bad, I like the name Pluto. At least they didn't name him Nix or Hydra. :) - unsigned comment from HoennMaster (talkcontribs)
His pets. TTEchidna 02:14, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Block me

Lol, I forgot all about this old account. Good times, good times. -- Ph34r(The Real Deal)  00:32, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

The News

Sorry to disturb you but in the lastest update to the Bulbanews section it is mentioned that Piplup uses an everstone to stay in its base forn. Shouldn't it be mentioned in Piplup's page. Otherwise we caqnt list it in the Bulbanews. --Prongs 10:16, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

We mention nothing until the episode airs. --ケンジガール 10:17, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Then why is it in news? And there are many character pages with it will appear in episode so and so. --Prongs 10:27, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Bulbanews is different from Bulbapedia. They can say what ever they want, when ever they want. The pedia is different. We're not supposed to mention anything that could potentially spoil an episode before airing. --ケンジガール 10:29, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
News reports on what is said, Pedia just states what is factual up to the last aired episode. Remember, we didn't make DP116 immediately. TTEchidna 21:14, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Also, an addendum (and not just to shirk responsibility), News is Argy's realm. She's the one who says what goes there. TTEchidna 21:58, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Form changes in articles

At what time increment (seconds, minutes, hours, days, years), if any, should Castform, Burmy, Wormadam, Shellos and Gastrodon change displaying the forms? They're the only ones left. I'm personnally thinking days (along the lines of Deoxys) for Castform, to demonstrate weather changes in a somewhat realistic time-frame, and maybe minutes for all the others.--MisterE13 17:18, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

I'll be having a planning talk on AIM tonight, I suppose, if you'd like to join us. TTEchidna 21:13, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
When will it be?--MisterE13 00:45, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Now? TTEchidna 01:01, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
AIM name?--MisterE13 01:11, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
You've never looked over my userpage, have you? TTEchidna 02:10, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Not in a while... I'm redy when you all are.--MisterE13 02:13, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
We're already talking. And it's very easy to find me. Just insert a bit of future into things. TTEchidna 02:20, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I can't figure it out. Unless you really think I should be there, just bring up my suggestions as stated previously.--MisterE13 02:38, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Dude. Bottom of my userpage. Sewiously. TTEchidna 02:39, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I know your name, I just can't find you on the site.--MisterE13 02:41, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Open AIM. Hit IM. Type in my name. THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO DO. TTEchidna 02:42, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I think I did it.--MisterE13 02:50, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

lol, Its not hard. I just started then. Click menu in the bottom left hand corner of the AIM screen, Then click "New IM", then type "TTFutureEchidna" into the little box, and away you talk.--Clarky13 02:53, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

In that case, I've already started.--MisterE13 02:55, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Forget it! Maybe next time. BTW TTE, I was GitrMstr if you saw that and ignored it. I've put my two cents in anyways and can always tweak the pages afterwards if I think they could be better.--MisterE13 03:03, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
You vanished. It broke. Your software doesn't support chat invites. Meaning I bet you were using Express. Or Meebo. Or some bullcwap like that. Use the standard progrum. TTEchidna 03:06, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I should maybe mention that just before I started this conversation, I did Cherrim. Hope it fits with the standards discussed during your little pow-wow.--MisterE13 19:07, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I was thinking the same about Cherrim. My only gripe is of course that it's on the same changer as Shaymin. TTEchidna 19:14, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
It does, however, make sense that "intense sunlight" would happen during the daytime as considered by the games. Ranch does something similar, however, day and night don't happen in real time.--MisterE13 19:19, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm. I'll need to test this. TTEchidna 20:13, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I first noticed it in a Club Look-See Ranch (I don't yet have a Cherrim), there were lots of Bud Cherrim and I figured that once day broke (which I don't think is real-time), they would all bloom. I was right.--MisterE13 20:52, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

In the past few weeks, I've been making lots of edits to articles of other Pokémon with different forms. I wanted to make sure they all work with the "master plan" discussed in the AIM chat mentionned earlier in this post. Please note that some of these might have been changed in the meantime either by me or someone else but these are the major differences. Castform, Weather Ball(1, 2), Deoxys, Burmy, Wormadam, Cherrim, (along with the subsequent creation of a new category), Shellos, Gastrodon, Giratina and Shaymin. *Awards self Golden Unown Award*--MisterE13 00:19, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Oyyy. But Cherrim's base stats don't change, not any more than Medicham's, Azumarill's, or Magikarp's due to their ability. Swift Swim, 50% Speed boost in rain. Whoo hoo. Doesn't mean Magikarp's Speed is suddenly 120, because the calculation of that comes in after everything else regarding the specific stat, and depends on THE FIELD OF BATTLE, not THE POKÉMON.
Anyway, your ass = on AIM. Tonight. TTEchidna 00:26, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
I guess we'll try that again. I'm GitrMstr. <edit> I think I'm on.--MisterE13 02:26, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
This is why you, um... respond. And get real AIM, not some Meebo crap or the express thing. Download the progrum. TTEchidna 03:26, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
I was on the AIM site last night, logged in and was trying to IM TTFutureEchidna for about an hour. You wern't on. Maybe tonight?--MisterE13 14:40, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Which is why I said, get real AIM. Not the website, use the program and run it. Express isn't compatible with chats and crashes a lot. TTEchidna 21:06, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Too complicated. Is there really aything so important/complicated that we couldn't just do it on a talk page or by PM?--MisterE13 00:31, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Not really. Download program, setup, run, pow, here ya go. Real-time collaboration helps. TTEchidna 00:36, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
I don't really want to download anything that'll slow down my computer any more. I do have an idea though, my brother runs an XAT chatroom for his "tourgroup". It's been slow lately and I doubt anyone would pop in. That could give us some real-time collaboration and no one has to download anything! Here's the link: [1]. I'm free for another while tonight.
Do a disc defrag? Uninstall some old crap you no longer use? TTEchidna 01:59, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
Shared computer. What's wrong with the chat? Just sign in and I'll block you as soon as we're done.--MisterE13 02:02, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
Shared computers still need disc defrags every once in a while, and to be cleaned out of old programs no longer used. TTEchidna 02:10, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
I'd rather wait for a consensus from everyone involved. If you want to talk though, the chat is still open and empty.--MisterE13 02:13, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
No need to worry, it doesn't have that much immediacy. TTEchidna 02:18, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
On the other hand, such a consensus will take a long time. People 'round here are kinda slow to make up their minds.--MisterE13 02:23, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm not gonna be able to. One person's pretty stubborn about that kind of thing and anther's kind of a graphic artist who takes up most of the computer with his images. Looks like the chat's the only option.--MisterE13 22:48, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Hm. Quite a pain. TTEchidna 23:19, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, it's the only way.--MisterE13 23:30, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
Unless you take my advice and defragment the disc, which should be done often anyway to keep the computer running fast. And most people with a ton of stuff have their own harddrives... so invest in one. TTEchidna 23:38, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
Look, we seem to have encountered a problem: I don't want to download the AIM program which will slow down my computer. You want me to defrag my hard-drive to improve the speed. I can't do that because it's a shared computer one of whose users aren't very good with technology and is too stubborn to defrag it and most of the hard-drive is simply taken up with pictures. I have suggested an alternative but it lookslike the only way we're going to do this is on a talkpage, by PM, in the XAT chat, on the AIM site... unless you have another solution.--MisterE13 01:30, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
I also just noticed that we have some sort of chatroom in the Bulbagarden Forums. I wouldn't know if it's any good but its certainly another option.--MisterE13 22:24, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
So, thats like 5 viable options.--MisterE13 01:14, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Guess What? It's Urgent

And where should I start editing Mr. Bossy? I'm not that old, only eighteen, so I haven't the slightest idea what happened during the Orange Island episodes. If you could give me some pages that need cleaning up, I'd gladly go there and help out. Until then, I will suggest movesets no matter what you sysop say because I want to help people. So much ♥, Lapras 01:24, 22 March 2009 (UTC).
OK, I know people have tried to explain this to you but I'll give it a shot. First of all, I'm younger than you and even I remember the Orange Islands. They probably assumed that you liked the Orange Islands since you like Lapras since that was when Ash caught his. Second of all, TTE here is not just a normal sysop/admin he's the editor in chief and, thus, pretty much th highest power here. Third off, this page's name (TTEchidna) is preceded by "User talk:" other pages (such as yours: Lapras) are preceded by the word "User:". These show which namespace its in (ie. User, User talk, and just plain "Talk"). Regular talk pages are used to talk about the article in question, User talk (like the page your using for an FAQ: talk page are used to talk to the specific user. If wish to have an FAQ page, please start a new one as a subpage (which is something many users like to have) such as: User:Lapras/FAQ or something similar. Anything without similar words preceding them are "mainspace". All edits take a certain toll on the server but only mainspace ones (and things such as templates) truly contribute to the wiki as a whole. We therefore encourage users to contribute to the mainspace more than most other things. We also try to limit ourselves to official information in the mainspace as much as possible. For example, unless Nintendo says that a certainmoveset is "the best", we won't put it in the mainspace. Once again, if you must put that, put it in a user page of yours. Just try to make more mainspace edits first;). Any more questions can be directed to my talk page (just click the "E" in my sig). And, @TTE, sorry for taking such a chunk of your talkpage :).--MisterE13 01:49, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Even if Ninty says that a moveset is "the best" we won't but it as recommended; we'll just say that it's been said to be the best by Nintendo, and let people make their own choices.
The best moveset for a Caterpie is Bug Bite, String Shot, and Tackle, since that's all it can have. Nothing else. But we'll let whoever wants to decide. TTEchidna 02:29, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Hey, Caterpie can learn Snore in Pt by move tutor! :P Ҝəυzø8 12:46, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Movie Group

I want to start a new group that writes stories about movies cause i know so much about them and well can i start one? totoRulz 12:39, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Please place comments at the bottom of the page. The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 12:41, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Also, I doubt you can, if you mean here, because that would be fanfiction. I think. Your explanation is a bit difficult to understand. The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 12:42, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
i know a lot a bout the movies cause i watched every single one and i want to sart a group to write about them! totoRulz 19:41, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Write what? The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 19:42, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
When you say movies do you mean the real movie. And when you say group do you mean a project?--Clarky13 06:24, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
I think I know what he means. He wants to create a project in which people write sypnosis for the Pokémon movies....--FF(edits-talk) 06:30, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
That's not really a project. You just go on and do it. TTEchidna 08:20, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Stupid question-

On some pages with Pokémon trainers their Pokémon's moves aren't there. Does Bulbapedia need this kind of information? I could find out the moves if you'd like. Pyles 12:50, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Like what pages? The minor Trainers? NO PLZ. Major ones only. TTEchidna 19:42, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm talking about trainers in games that you can battle against that are also in the Anime. Like say, the Winstrate family in the anime has different Pokémon than they do in the games. Vito has the Pokémon he owns in the games with their own table and no moves are displayed. I'm just thinking that I could find out the moves to make the table more complete/ helpful. All I'm trying to do is help complete Bulbapedia. Pyles 21:58, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes, you can fill in Vito's table, and any other similar tables around the wiki. There are lots here. Please and thank you! — THE TROM — 22:30, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Those guys are major, specific Trainers. I mean stuff that aren't Bug Catchers. TTEchidna 22:42, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Great, I'll start right on it. But there is a flaw in my plan... my Ruby doesn't work, is there a difference between trainers in Sapphire and Ruby? Sapphire is the only game my Gameboy seems to like. Pyles 10:53, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
Only between the villainous teams. Everything else is the same. — THE TROM — 10:57, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
Woo-hoo! This is great; I'm actually going to be making good edits to Bulbapedia! (For once) Pyles 11:54, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

The new TCG Template

On the Category:TCG pages using the old template page. Should we put in a section on how to use the template, since it is a long and grueling process adding the new template to all the TCG articles, we need all the help we can get. I kinda updated the "Using the Template" section on the template talk page.--Clarky13 06:33, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Sure, link to it. TTEchidna 07:28, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Also, on the the topic of errrr... The new TCG Template. Should we put a template on the top each article that still has the old template on it? It will speed up the process and tell people why the page looks screwy.--Clarky13 12:38, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
If anything the warning should be in the card template itself. Of course, if people would bother to read the Main Page then we wouldn't have to. TTEchidna 19:53, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Players and NPCs

Shouldn't the playable characters and NPCs be included in those articles? Their articles link there but they aren't even there. *tc26* 08:44, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Who what what? TTEchidna 08:45, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Player characters in side games like Kellyn and Lunick, and NPCS of side games aren't included in the player character and NPC articles. Shouldn't they be? *tc26* 08:49, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Well of course. In their own sections. TTEchidna 09:11, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Enough is ENOUGH!

TTEchidna, if it is you who keeps messing with my page, seriously, STOP. I'm going to do an FAQ, deal with it!

Just a little note from me, Lappy. You can't ban admins from your page. TTEchidna 22:24, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Why is it that Giratina and Shyamin have Forme while Castform has forms? --Prongs (TalkContributions) 05:10, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

It's just the name of the form. Don't ask me why it's Plant Cloak and not Plant Coat. That's just what Nintendo named it. TTEchidna 05:16, 27 March 2009 (UTC)


My browser is suggesting me to break my talk page in sections. How do we do it ?( I mean archives ofcourse). --Prongs (TalkContributions) 05:52, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Concerning anti-gunjump measures for the dub...

Setting protection to expire at around 10:00 UTC (the standard time for Japanese-based anti-gunjump measures) for a dub-based anti-gunjump measure is just begging for gun-jumpers to take advantage of a three-hour window. The dub episodes premiere at 9:00 AM Eastern, which corresponds to 13:00 UTC during DST and 14:00 UTC when DST is not in effect. I've already adjusted the protections for DP101 to fit with the dub airtime, but keep this in mind for the future. --Shiningpikablu252 14:23, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Ah shoot. I put it for the Japanese airtime, didn't I? My bad. TTEchidna 01:05, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Just a question

n00bish question, I know, but I have been seeing some people put up subpages for their anime predictions. I'd like to do that, too, but I don't know how to set up the tables and stuff like that. Can you help me?Totodilesentret 23:49, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Look at the coding for their tables and tables elsewhere (but be careful, I've tended to templateify every mainspace table...). TTEchidna 23:51, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I owe you!Totodilesentret 23:58, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Wikia Encyclopedia

About the Wikia wiki... I've been to busy on SimCity Wiki to notice, but the last time I saw the site, it had barely any info on Ganeration IV Pokémon. As a member of Wikia, I also discourage vandalism on competing wikis, but keep them as rivals- like Ash and Gary. I hope this is useful!! SilverCharmeleon 00:06, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

*cough rivals fail cough*. As Long as theres no more copying and pasting, and plagurizing, of course.DCM((Mock MeEdits)) 00:10, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
But Gary's no longer a rival of Ash. TTEchidna 00:11, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Ok how about Paul? SilverCharmeleon 00:09, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


Also the sypnosises on many episodes need work. SilverCharmeleon 00:09, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Re: Acid Rain

Oh whoops, sorry mate. It's true I've been here a while but I don't often do much editing, so I didn't know about those templates. I'll be sure to remember for next time though! Matkin22 17:35, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Article for Galactic Grunt with swollen ass, "Uranus" an acceptable title?

As brought up in discussion on the Galactic Grunt talk page, there is a recurring character in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure who is easily notable enough for his own article, but has no actual name, leaving us stumped as to what to call him. The term "Uranus" has been in use a little bit, as a reference to the planetary naming system for Galactic Commanders, as well as his swollen butt. However, before simply going with this fan made name (of course when made, the fan-made nature of the name will be noted within the article) Theryguy512 said that while it seems a decent alternative to a long running title like "The Galactic Grunt with the swollen buttocks", I should run the idea by you first. --Sato 12:24, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

If it's an often-used fan name, and he has no real one, sure. Go for it. TTEchidna 17:11, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Sevii Islands debate

Oh please, I last posted six months ago, and noone had continued arguing, so I assumed you'd seen the light, and I'd won the debate. But I posted that week long deadline to be sure, you're lucky I didn't start editing right away (you sertainly seemed to see it quick enough). Also, the game says One Island, it stays One Island, and it certainly doesn't get changed to its nickname just because you dislike it's proper name. When you chose the island to sail to, it says one island and such! It does not say Knot island. The one piece of evidence for your theory is the signs, and they are most likely simple nicknames, as the islands are never again named as such. Come on, this is just common sence. But if you need more evidence, even the Pokemon Adventure manga (widely regarded as the anime closest to the actual games) explicitly states right out that they are just nicknames. If that isn't proof, I don't know what is, at the very least it's much better than simply assuming, I'm sure they're more familier with the workings of pokemon than you are.

I have an idea, maybe, instead of disregarding the names nintendo itself gives you for some simple nicknames, you should mailbag nintendo to see if you're right instead of making foolish and baseless assumptions. Noname

You sail to "One Island" because you are sailing to the town "One Island". As noted on the sign in the township, the island is named "Knot Island". — THE TROM — 23:14, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Also, I did just mailbag Ninty, but it's up to them if they wanna use it. It'd be nice if we could actually have a direct hotline to them with all canonicity issues. TTEchidna 23:46, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Oh, by the way. You sail back to Kanto, but it says "Vermilion". The region's called Vermilion now, right? TTEchidna 00:35, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
You know, typicly you reply on the other persons talk page. :\ Anyway, you sail to vermillion because that is the part of the kanto region you are going to. But One island and such are not huge regions, they are islands, plus there are no other towns on them, so it tells you you are sailing to the island itself. Noname Please see logic, I beg of you. :(
No, typically, you keep it all in the same place. Anyway, we might as well call the region Indigo as long as we move the pages to "One Island (island)". Sure. Let's be stupid. After all, Kanto is just a nickname. TTEchidna 17:48, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
Oh also, you sail to Kin Island, you end up in Three Isle Port. The port of the town Three Island. TTEchidna 17:50, 8 April 2009 (UTC)


You might want to take a look at this. Do you think this could be applied for our pedia, such as maybe being used for the regions? ht14 03:19, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Ouch man. Ouch. I'll see what I can do about developing something like that for the regional maps. Meanwhile, you learn how to external link. TTEchidna 03:22, 3 April 2009 (UTC) it now. Figured. No, I'm just looking around and I saw it's pretty cool, that's all... ht14 03:24, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
That would look like Serebii's Pokéarth..? Ҝəυzø8 03:28, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
That's...true...however, I think we could somehow use it for other mechanisms as well... ht14 03:29, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Really, I'd only think it'd be ripping off Serebii if we intended to put all the maps together and use them as the templates rather than the nice text-based ones we have now. If I can pull off a Sinnoh map hack to do this, I'd say it'd be viable for the infoboxes as kind of an "extra" link... that is, if the imagemap parser works here... it might just piss the server off worse than it is already. TTEchidna 03:33, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Ok then. Just a suggestion. I tried to post a copy, but it's not working. Oh well. ht14 03:36, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Yep. We don't have that parser. However, Sinnoh's clean map is now uploaded... TTEchidna 03:52, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
So I observed. <bold> and <italic> attached to ''' and '' respectively, if you know what I mean? As in, can the former ones be removed without the other ones being removed? Just a thought... ht14 02:22, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
We try not to use the tags for bold and italic, only the apostrophes. So. Yeah, by all means, remove the tags. TTEchidna 02:34, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
I mean are those parsers removable from the system? ht14 02:38, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
They don't seem to be hurting anything... TTEchidna 03:18, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Barry or Pearl???

Exactly where did the name Pearl come from? I always thought the rival from D/P/P's name was Barry. I mean, Pearl isn't one of his choice names. While Barry was a choice in Diamond, Platinum, and his anime character. - Kirby Phelps (PK)

It's in the Japanese version... As well as the manga. --ケンジガール 23:31, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
There's a way not to give the primary Generation IV rival a name, either from the default list headed by "Barry" or "Clint" (depending on version) or a customizable name. The character's page describes how this is possible, and the end outcomes of such an action. This is probably the reason why the article's at "Pearl" and not "Barry" or even "Clint". --Shiningpikablu252 23:49, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Same rules are followed for Blue and Silver. TTEchidna 20:51, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
For Blue it's obvious that his name is Blue because it says so in G/S/C. For Silver, you're forced to give him a name and if you choose ok without giving him one, it'll automatically go to Silver. So he only has one default name and it's Silver. Pearl on the other had has many names and the one that appears most often is Barry. Plus, Lucas and Dawn don't have names based off the game, so Pearl is like the odd man out. I guess it just makes more since that his name would be Barry. Also...Pearl is a girl's name! :P - Kirby Phelps (PK)
Lucas and Dawn are the names. Pearl's just Pearl because that's what's given if you hit "new name" and then hit okay. TTEchidna 07:17, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Also, this is kinda off topic but, the female protagonist in FR/LG, why's her name Leaf? Shouldn't it be Green?
Because we already have a Green . --Prongs (TalkContributions) 14:34, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
No we don't. I mean the only Green we have is Blue's Japanese name. - Kirby Phelps (PK)
Well then what should have been the Japanese name for Leaf? and start signing.--Prongs (TalkContributions) 14:53, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
If her english name were Green, her Japanese name would be Blue. It makes the most sense. Also, I know we can't really judge the names based on the manga, but the female character in the first generation of the manga's name was Green in the english manga. And then Green changed her clothes to look more like Leaf. She looks exactly like Leaf in fact. So Leaf and Green are actually the same. So why would her name be Leaf? Is there any proof that her name is Leaf? I mean Leaf is just one name out of the many many default names for her. Her name could just as easily be Fire. - Kirby Phelps (PK)
There's dummied-out Trainer data for both her and Red, and for their names, in both English and Japanese it's Red/レッド Leaf/リーフ. We've been over this a thousand times. We know what we're talking about especially since it's been more than five years since the games came out. TTEchidna 03:16, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
What's dummied-out mean? - Kirby Phelps (PK)
Now learn to program. TTEchidna 17:21, 15 April 2009 (UTC)


To split Wormadam's level-up and TM/HM learnsets (or perhaps only one of the two) into 3 seperate tables, one for each form Sir! It'll be easier to mark STAB for each.--MisterE13 01:52, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Actually, flipping it between them dependent on the form (when I get around to programming the forms) will be an easier way... TTEchidna 02:08, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
What about Deoxys, STAB isn't a problem but it might look cleaner to split that up too.--MisterE13 01:48, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Ehhh... no. Not really. For Deoxys I'd say we wait until we can get the javascript flippers... TTEchidna 01:54, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

User Page

Excuse me but havent you crossed the limit of User Page edits. If the rule is not for Admins than sorry. --Prongs (TalkContributions) 09:21, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

You do realize that you're talking to the EIC? Anyway, there's no more userpage limits, all you have to do is to minimize it and balance your mainspace contribs over userspace. Kevzo8 09:35, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, we did away with those in like... January. Now the only limit is "don't just edit it", meaning "spice up everyone's lives with a plethora of mainspace contribs". 20,000 seems good. TTEchidna 20:50, 6 April 2009 (UTC)


TTE, I was not logged onto Bulbapedia and I went to User:LightBrawler's talkpage, I was suddenly logged on. Then when I went to another page I wasn't. I could tell because Pyles was at the top and so was my talk my preferences etc. and so on. It was pretty wierd so I wanted to let you know. If you have no idea then can you redirect me to someone who might? Pyles 20:25, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

All I'd be able to tell you is that maybe your cache wasn't cleared. If you'd been on LightBrawler's page recently while logged in, that's likely the case. Aside from that... um. Why does it matter if one page says that? Didn't you read the notice that appears when you log off? TTEchidna 20:53, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Can I start something new?

I wanted to start putting on pages for the anime if it is a filler or not, can i put it in a new headline? totoRulz 20:50, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Also why can i not edit my userpage?totoRulz 21:33, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

I'd say saying outright if something's a filler on a page is bad... especially if it's like this:

This episode is a filler


No, don't do that. As for editing your userpage, you can. Freely. Just don't do it too much or we'll have to disallow you from doing so. TTEchidna 22:21, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

How come the event Milotic shows 20/5 for Rain Dance, 15/10 for Recover, and 10/5 for Hydro Pump as shown on Serebii? ht14 12:24, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Ask Serebii? Considering the Milotic in question isn't released yet, the image is probably a hack or something. — THE TROM — 12:35, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Not too sure about that... ht14 12:37, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Maybe Nintendo used a PP Up??? --Theryguy512 14:28, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Then it'd be 6/6, but Rain Dance can't reach to 20...similar cases are shown for Recover and Hydro Pump. Usually, the denominator is the same or greater than the numerator... ht14 14:31, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
It's what you can do when you hack. Serebii obviously hacked it to use as an example (since the real thing won't be available until next month) and forgot to deposit it to reset its PP to the max. TTEchidna 17:26, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Ok still doesn't make sense with Rain Dance PP maxxing past PP Max limit... ht14 22:24, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Its a Hacked pokemon. Its not supposed to make sense.If it was I, i would go above the PP count just to mess with peoples head

User:DCM 15:32, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

A category idea

Would it be alright if I create a category known as "Milestone episodes"?

For example:

  • EP001 - The first ep
  • EP100 - The 100th ep
  • EP200 - The 200th ep
  • EP128 - The episode of the new millennium.
  • EP261 - The first episode aired with digital paint
  • DP121 - The first episode aired in HD

What do you think? --ケンジガール 04:01, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

That's a good idea. Don't forgo the 300th, 400th, and 500th (and soon 600th) episodes, though. Also, EP179 is the first episode of the new millennium. However... EP128 was the first (and only so far) to air on the first of the year. And make sure to have the series-changes (last of the series, first of the series) be milestones, as well. TTEchidna 04:29, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Why is it that 2000 is widely considered the new millennium when its really in 2001? I think we are going to run into some problems with other users if we say EP179 is the first episode of the millennium. --ケンジガール 04:34, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Not... really. Just say "The first episode of the 3rd millennium. TTEchidna 04:36, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

List of Pokémon by color

I tried to ask this on the page's discussion, but got no answer... I remember reading somewhere that, unless there's a good reason to do otherwise, Pokémon should be listed by their Ndex number. Is there any reason why in this page Pokémon are listed by name? Should I reorder them? Mr. Charlie 00:58, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, it makes more sense to do them by name in this instance, since Ndex doesn't really provide for any more advantage (and can confuse you). If you want to reorder it, then fine. Go for it. Just do the whole page at once. TTEchidna 20:40, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

This should be thrilling. TTEchidna 00:48, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
lol it is! totoRulz 00:56, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
well let me know if you like the page. I was wondering, am I in any chance of getting an award, and to make an even 3 questions, why can I not edit my userpage, well goodnight, answer me asap. totoRulz 01:20, 13 April 2009 (UTC)


Some weird ad tried to install adware on my computer. It even redirected me to its site. It was disguised as antivirus. I'm really pissed on this issue. I was lucky that I managed to type this. So, you're the boss of Bulbapedia, so tell those f***ing stupid ads to GO AWAY. Go bug Archaic if that fails. SilverCharmeleon 23:56, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

We're doing our best. Report the ad in the Bulbagarden forums, since that's the best place it can get dealt with. TTEchidna 02:01, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Other pages

There may be other pages, but since I was unable to find a page with the information I needed. I created it. I will continue to work on it until it is complete, and if you think it should be deleted once it is completed. Let us discuss it on it's page. Also, in regards to Poke. I was doing this site a favor in even adding the information. I am not normally a wiki-editor and did not/do not know how to add that silly Poke symbol. Kenji 03 01:56, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Then learn. Everything's not going to be under a convenient tab that says "THE INFORMATION YOU'RE AFTER IS RIGHT HERE!". The pages we have are already complete with all of the info on what happens at specific times and days of the week in the Pokémon world. TTEchidna 02:00, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Okay, in regards to the Time page you cited, it does not have the information I was listing. It did not have information regarding where specific events were located. Also, pages do exist that are, esentially, "THE INFORMATION YOU ARE AFTER". Note List of Pokémon by base stats. All I was doing was trying to create a page that was similar to that. I posted my page prematurely in an attempt to save it. Having you mark it for deletion imediately there after was both disheartening and discouraging as a new contributor to Bulbapedia.Kenji 03 02:17, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
WAH WAH WAH. Know how many times I was told my contribs sucked ass? You have to do minor things. Look around. Everything isn't going to be where you want it to be exactly because the names of the pages shouldn't be at stupid stuff with slashes in them. Slashes indicate subpages. User:TTEchidna/Psychos. Yayhoo. Add to the pages we have, rather than cry about how I deleted your page full of duplicate information. TTEchidna 02:21, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Oh, don't worry. I won't be contributing at all to this site anymore. If mistakes are met with such extreme and rude criticism, and the rewards are mute. Why bother? You can say that all I am doing is whining, but I am actually complaining about your insensitive, course, and unbecoming behavior as a representative of this site. Kenji 03 02:54, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Course? Don't worry, I play Mario Kart pretty good. Mistakes are one thing, kid, but adamantly repeating them is a whole new ballgame. TTEchidna 03:12, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


answer my 3 questions!!! totoRulz 13:20, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, Dorothy, you first have to remember a few things about me personally. First off, of, of all... I gotta have my style. You know, the kind of style where the geek thinks he's cooler than anyone else in the neighborhood, and then, when his friends break it to him that he's not, he ends up crying to the Internet? Yeah, something like that, only without all the crying.
Anyway, I'll leave a few Easter eggs for ya. Those being, of course, the answers, "I don't care, look at how others like it", "don't ask and you might be", and "you can, kid, just don't go crazy". This has been another TTE-answers-your-questions-on-his-talkpage, so now where's my T-shirts and DVDs? TTEchidna 17:18, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
By the way, holy craaaaap. TTEchidna 17:20, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


Okay then. I may sound diffrent to you, but I AM Tomkid600. I will sometimes sign my comments with that name, but that's not my current Bulbapedia account. It's 1337fighter 'cos I forgot my password. So noww, I think it's good to have a new beginning. Tomkid600, we hardly knew you!

Did you try the email password button?User:DCM 21:52, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Featured article candidates

Could you check it when you have the time? Because I move to close the following votes: Ash Ketchum (Support 23, Object 9), Pikachu (Support 16, Object 6), Missingno. (Support 18, Object 8), Bulbasaur (Support 22, Object 3), History of Pokémon (Support 15, Object 0), Mew (Support 11, Object 0), Pokémon Crater (Support 2, Object 12), Weather conditions (Support 2, Object 5), and Charizard (Base Set 4) (Support 7, Object 1). Alpha Totodile 00:56, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Later on. TTEchidna 01:30, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
OK. By the way, Pokémon Crater now has 14 object votes. Alpha Totodile 01:40, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Those nominations have been around for ages, and more often that not, the article has changed a lot in the interim. I'm not entirely sure how valuable a lot of the votes would be now. — THE TROM — 08:09, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, some of the users that voted there have pretty much disappeared, some votes are outdated (like Kenji-girl voting against Ash for the trivia, which I fixed a few days ago), so...yeah. BTW Trom, could you please provide a link to your userpage in your sig? Alpha Totodile 22:11, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Just because you changed one thing she disagreed with doesnt mean she suddenly agrees. i vote for a clean plate for all current candidates as to ensure that we have the current user base vote, not the ones who left.User:DCM 22:20, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
I do wonder, really, if we should bother with FACs... they've not been needed very much. TTEchidna 23:40, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
It seems to be a wikipedia thing, therefore its thought that we need it. we could just axe it, it is minor.....User:DCM 23:52, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, the Homestar wiki does it too, but they're about a cartoon. This is a game. TTEchidna 00:28, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Then Off with its head. Its to much work for something so insignificant.00:37, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Hey T.....

Where'd ya get the Images for EP001-EP006? Just askin.--FF(editstalk) 05:19, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Printscreen on a website you should know. TTEchidna 07:02, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you.

I can't see anything around Bulbapedia on changing usernames apart from a little snippet here: "If you are unhappy with your username, you may ask an administrator to change it for you, but more of that later." Could I possibly ask that mine is changed to Tribulations? Thank you in advance. Mageslayer99 10:00, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Because changing usernames is a pain for us to do. Deleting the global account, renaming on up to three wikis... it's greeeeat. So we just tend not to mention it. But it's done. Enjoy your new name. TTEchidna 17:26, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Ah, right. =/ Well, thank you very much. =) Tribulations 17:34, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Quick question

What's with #31 in here? Kinda creepy, IMO. |3urn 57R1K3 01:59, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

That's... odd. TTEchidna 03:11, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
We all know it's odd. Can we find out something new? |3urn 57R1K3 03:43, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Wait a couple hours for the refresh? TTEchidna 03:46, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Wonder if whatever that is is contributing to the problems we've been having lately? If only we could isolate it...--Shiningpikablu252 03:52, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, we can't even see what links to it. I'll bring it up to those in charge. TTEchidna 03:55, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
I already brought it to them a week ago. They had no idea... Archaic didn't know, and he sent it to Zhen Lin, who also had no idea about it. MaverickNate 12:50, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
I checked the HTML, and there's nothing in the coding that's really abnormal about it (besides the fact it says Invalid title in result set) |3urn 57R1K3 13:38, 16 April 2009 (UTC)


Do you approve of this? *tc26* 04:27, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Mostly. Use Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. TTEchidna 04:33, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Party template

Could you change the template so that the text colors are the color dark. Some are really hard to read, like Cynthia. *tc26* 07:33, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

The problem is not every instance uses a color template. Just go through and correct the offending ones manually like I did here. — THE TROM — 08:26, 16 April 2009 (UTC)


Hey, I don't wanna fight.Besides English isn't my mother language.NUser:Pokenick

He's not interested in a fight either. Regardless of whether or not English is your first language, please try to use good grammar and spelling. And punctuation. Put spaces in between your sentences. And follow this. Thanks! --ニョロトノ666 00:24, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Why does everyone think I'm out to kill them? I don't come off as that much of a sarcastic jackass, do I? TTEchidna 04:18, 18 April 2009 (UTC)


Dude, can u help put this up for deletion?alec9 * - * 23:51, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Just by putting {{delete}} on it you mark it for deletion. TTEchidna 00:23, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Locations Template

I know we just finished replacing the TCG infobox template. But the locations template looks forgotten. Do you like of this new template.--Clarky13 00:11, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

I planned to do the locations next, soon as I get the time to develop my idea further. And that's a HORRID map. TTEchidna 00:22, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
It is a bad map. It kinda draws you off it. Anyways, if you wish to design the locations, do what ever.--Clarky13 03:14, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, it is a good design for the template, but I wouldn't have recommended HMs in there... TTEchidna 04:00, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Lol, yeah. I was trying to make it a little less bear.--Clarky13 04:15, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Less bear? TTEchidna 04:16, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Less bare, I should say. Garrrrrr, your talkpage limit is low once again. Do you want to continue this on AIM, or are you too busy.--Clarky13 04:29, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Bug me if you wish. TTEchidna 05:10, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Na. I'll leave you to it. I was looking at your Towns Infobox. Wow!!! Do you want me to make mine look in sync with that?--Clarky13 05:12, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Already seems somewhat in-sync... Try and make it closer to the current one, though. We don't wanna add too many parameters. TTEchidna 05:54, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Sorry for bugging you once again. Because I epically fail at my own coding, I have a problem with my location infobox. I tried the {{switch}} for the generation template, except I want Yes to have the {{rock color light}}, but instead it has the {{rock color}}, which I do not get.--Clarky13 09:24, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
You can't put the # at the head of one of the switch's resultant statements, so I just made it so that it calls it as a hex code beforehand and changed "white" to "FFFFFF", since that's... white. Should work how you wanted it now, though I think it looks kinda... eh. TTEchidna 09:29, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
Perfect. Ahhh... that was the problem. Hope that is better.--Clarky13 09:33, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Trainer Card Template

I was going to make a template out of your trainer card and wanted to know if it would be okay with you if I used it. Thanks so much » Alex.

Uhm. It's kinda. Eh. I like people to have their own style. TTEchidna 02:06, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
As part of the template, you are going to have an attribution, so at least you will be acknowledged as the original creator… :D Pandamonia 03:10, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
So? I may have total control over BP, but I don't exactly want nutjobs vowing to overthrow me and stuff like that floating around.
I'm serious. It's happened. TTEchidna 03:37, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
it will happen TTE. I HAVE THE POWER! Your reign will be replaced by the far superior Wikia Empire!User:DCM 03:43, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm lost. First, we were talking about whether or not I could use his design, and now we're talking about possible conspiracy theories…my head hurts. Pan·da·mo·ni·ia 23:47, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Table/Infobox templates

I made some templates. Would you mind checking here if they're fine? *tc26* 12:26, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

You've got my approval, now just put them to a vote by others who stop by. TTEchidna 19:12, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
Love it! You have my vote! Pan·da·mo·ni·ia 23:48, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
Sure. *tc26* 01:42, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Another one here. Example on its talk page. *tc26* 10:25, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Check mine as well. Thanks, Kevzo8 12:47, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Very good work. TTEchidna 17:10, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

"Color template" template

Do you know how to make one to make things quicker? I tried with {{lclr}} and it failed due to the noincludes. *tc26* 03:11, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm confused. What now? The noincludes are there to show the color without having to include the color in a page. TTEchidna 03:12, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Just copy, paste, change the names and numbers. — THE TROM — 03:13, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Like a template for the color templates so I can just type something like {{subst:lclr|Pewter City|909497}} and then it'll become the contents of {{Pewter City color}}. I can't make one due to the nowiki's. *tc26* 03:16, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
...we're not gonna make a template so you can make templates. Templates do not beget templates. Templates beget charts. Copy and paste is your best buddy ever. TTEchidna 03:18, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
