Move templates

Why did you revert the move templates placed at Pound, Hypnosis and Healing Wish? There's nothing wrong with being bold and besides, they look better than the boxes that are there now. Morgan695 00:59, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Why? Because they look worse. You have to scroll more, and while sure, you can recognize the Pokémon from their image, well, jeez, it stresses the server to load up so many images. If anything, a change to that format should be brought up on the talk page for Project MoveDex. While there's absolutely nothing wrong with being bold, there's the fact that there's 467 moves, each would be loading at least two or three images (the average, with 493 Pokémon, would likely be at least 150 images). Also, there's a reason we use link templates, so you don't have to link to the moves as [[Giga Drain (move)|Giga Drain]], you merely need to use {{m|Giga Drain}}.
Also, Bulbapedia is not Wikipedia. We have our own (albeit sometimes a bit more complicated for the sake of consistency) sense of style, and Zhen Lin himself has said that the moves should not have the icon-list tables on Royalshow ten's talk page. TTEchidna 09:23, 1 September 2007 (UTC)


sorry about last time of editing your page :( I just wanted to say thank you for the tips and I do have better grammer than the new users??

Sometimes you do. Just remember to capitalize and all that, follow the manual of style as best you can. Also, it's "grammar", Grammer is an actor. TTEchidna 22:51, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Crud!!! :(

Sorry! Sorry! I had kind of an emergency and I had to rush out really quickly, and so I didn't even have time to finish the article, much less categorize it. I feel like an idiot now, and I'll make sure to do it in the future. Politoed666 01:33, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Don't worry. Just be sure to categorize it, or heck, just leave your computer on with the window open, or, since you have Firefox, you could get the session manager extension and just save the session, then continue your edits later, or just save the text in a notepad document. TTEchidna 01:38, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Portuguese tag

What portuguese tag were you talking about? Netto-kun 12:26, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

You know, the one on your userpage. TTEchidna 21:22, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Ah, you did it right. Netto-kun 00:28, 3 September 2007 (UTC)


Thanks! Got it :P

How was the working with userboxes 2


I think that you didn't understand me very well.I was talking about this massege and this userboxes:

"Part 2 Ah, no, we don't have a plain, customizable userbox template... Might be a really good idea, though, since now it's a pain in the ass to make custom userboxes. I'll take care of making it (or them, even) later myself, though, I've gotta make sure that it'll work well. I'm gonna talk to Zhen and Pie about perhaps making a page here like how Wookiepedia has one on userboxes and how to use them later on, too. We should have all that finished up soon, I think. TTEchidna 23:06, 15 August 2007 (UTC)"

I understand that you will talk with Zhen and Pie,and ask them for put this "custom userboxes" available for us,users,but you didn't return me.What will be do?


Um, well, we're dealing with it right now... In fact, I think a {{User Template}} has been made, much like the one at Wookiepedia... So it should work the same. Why don't you try it? TTEchidna 21:26, 2 September 2007 (UTC)


But,How is it work?;where I put the name of the image?;Can you explan me more about?


Well, pretty much what you gotta do is put in {{User Template|This user believes in|Arceus (Pokémon)|God|493.png|special|unknown|grass}}. It should result in the below:
  This user believes in God
It's the best example I could come up with. Just change up the colors, text, and such. TTEchidna 20:59, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
You can specify a border color, at the end, so, following your example:
{{User Template|This user believes in|Arceus (Pokémon)|God|493.png|special|unknown|grass|electric}}

Will make:

  This user believes in God

It worked Shiny Noctowl.Thak you very much.


RE: Vulpix

just as aside, since you were the one who changed my Vulpix edit...

Vulpix can't learn Energy Ball form levelling or TM.

however, I bred it with my Nuzleaf that had Energy Ball, and it learned it.

so, in Vulpix's case, Energy Ball is breeding-only.

Ah, shoot, sorry. I should realize, since the case was the same for Psyduck before Gen IV with Psychic. Um... question, though, can you do Vulpix's egg moves the same way that I have Charizard's done? TTEchidna 04:27, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

no problem, I'll work on it...may as well, right?

expect me to take my time, though...chain-breeding research is hard...

Well, you don't have to research the whole chain, just if it's unbreedable otherwise... TTEchidna 05:31, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

You changed your page???

Hey, I didn't know you totally changed your page! It looks so much better now!

I think so, too. TTEchidna 04:57, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Team Rocket Robots

Hey, TTEchina, I was thinking of starting an article about all of Team Rocket's Robots. I was just asking, do think that it would be nessecary? --Ryguy 09:10, 3, September 2007 (EST)

Like from the anime? I suppose you could make an article on Team Rocket's mechs. Just make sure to organize it well. TTEchidna 23:46, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
...Serebii has oneOptimus35 09:28, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

....yea, am i aloud to use pictures from serebii or this that copyright stuff> --Ryguy 06:28, 6 Sptember 2007 (EST)

I'm not sure, Serebii has copyrighted all its content (check the bottom of the this page)Optimus35 04:51, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, he really doesn't like it when people jack his stuff. TTEchidna 06:05, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
Is it even legal to copyright a screenshot? He didn't actually make the episode. Zurqoxn 18:18, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
I... actually don't know. He was the one who took it, though. My best piece of advice if you're planning on using screens Serebii took: Don't announce the fact to the world. TTEchidna 01:15, 8 September 2007 (UTC)


I read your article and decided to make a Haymaker deck myself! I tried it out in unlimited format at the local league, and it did pretty well! Just thought I'd let you know. Politoed666 19:42, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Nice. I was never able to make one myself, I never had the cards to. I did, however, face a few. TTEchidna 23:55, 3 September 2007 (UTC)


I just wrote a new article for Project Decks, on the Eeveelutions archetype. Check it out! However, I have a problem. I can't create a contents box! Could you please either do it or tell me how? Politoed666 20:15, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Like the Table of Contents? Those are autocreated for pages that have four or more subheadings. Also, you should use three apostrophes (') instead of quotation marks (") in the opening line; e.g. Eeveelutions instead of "Eeveelutions". Also, link stuff that you can with the {{TCG}} and {{P}} templates instead of using normal linking methods. Link templates are your friend. TTEchidna 23:45, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
OK! Politoed666 01:36, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Disambiguation: A Complicated Problem

Like I said before, I wrote a new article, Eeveelutions. However, I realized that there is also an article on Eeveelution, the Skyridge Theme Deck. In addition, there is just the normal Eeveelution article, referring to the fandom term. I feel there needs to be a disambiguation page for when someone types in "eeveelution" or "eeveelutions." Do you agree, or am I just being picky? Write me on my talk page. Thanks! --Politoed666 01:48, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

I'll take care of it. TTEchidna 01:50, 4 September 2007 (UTC)


Hey TTEchidna.

I'm Mike. I would like us to become friends. I'm gonna add ure friend code when i get connected to Wi-Fi.

Waitin for ure reply.



Um, okay... TTEchidna 06:30, 5 September 2007 (UTC)


I didn't realize that u speak Spanish to. That's great. Post your MSN on the page (That is if u have MSN) and we can chat sometime. If u don't have MSN just post ure e-mail. Thnx.


Nope, no MSN. Just AIM. I don't trust MSN messenger after I got a billion viruses through it. TTEchidna 08:20, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

So will u accept me if I add ure friend code when i connect to Wi-Fi? Oh and wats AIM. If it's e-mail please send me ure adress.


I suppose so... as long as you start using correct spelling and grammar. Possessive of "you" is "your", not "ure". Contraction of "you are" is "you're". "You" spelled with less than three letters is not a pronoun. And what is spelled "what". Address is spelled as stated, and I is always capital if it's the pronoun... unless you don't consider yourself important...

And AIM, AOL Instant Messenger. It's no email, it's the same kind of thing as MSN Messenger. TTEchidna 09:50, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Ok. I shall start speaking properly. I just thought you liked people who talk like that on the computer.


Heck no. I haaaaate grammar-murderers. TTEchidna 05:31, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

"Erika's Dratini"

Man, I've got a major favor to ask, here. While I am a member of Project TCGDex, I'm having trouble learning the template. Also, I consider Barrier Swap my best article so far. And there are only a few red links. One of them happens to be Erika's Dratini. I've already uploeded a picture to Bulbagarden Archives, titled "Image:Baboom.jpg." So, I'd love it if you'd do the hard part and write the article. If you think of any tedious article you'd like me to write in return, just say so. Thank You. Politoed666 21:42, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

P.S. I think you oughta delete all those "Heys." I don't have anything against the dude, but, honestly, they look bad. And tell him to sign the right way.

I'll be able to later on... I have class in a little bit. TTEchidna 22:09, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
Nice job! It looks great. Politoed666 21:19, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Well, actually, Shiningpikablu252 made it... TTEchidna 06:08, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

I was wondering?

Is vulgar language acceptable on Bulbapedia?Optimus35 06:04, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

I already answered this. -Politoed666 21:44, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
...Is crap considered vulgar? Optimus35Talk | DP 13:21, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

My opinion... that the user FREAKAZOID should be temporarily blocked. I have noticed that he has been warned about the notability of his articles, and I have seen him posting useless crap on peoples user pages, trying to drive them "crazy." Think about it. -Politoed666 21:48, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Hmm... Well, while it'd be better to email/IM me about this sort of thing, so as not to offend anyone... I'll look into it. TTEchidna 06:13, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

How can I make it so that the image in my signature is on the same line as the rest of the text? --Shiny NoctowlTalk|Trivia quiz

Also, is there any way to see how many edits I have made without having to count them on my contributions page? --Shiny NoctowlTalk|Trivia quiz

01:32, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

I can see... Ummm... I dunno, that's WAY advanced wikicode. I think it might be that you put it in a chart or the fact that you used a <div>...

The question is whether the stuff you have in the <div style> can be used the same way in a <span style>. I don't think it can, however, if you'd be fine with just the image, well, you can use that after a no-break space... TTEchidna 02:26, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Page for deletion

Can you please delete this Fanfic Crap article? --Maxim 09:45, 8 September 2007 (UTC)


I need help editing pages- the edit help page has been removed coz of copyright. Oh yeah how do u get those things sayin stuff like 'this user identifies himself as a male' and boxes containing stuff, and contents things????

No.1fan (Sonic)

PS check out my site:

  This user identifies as male.
  This user lieks Mudkipz.
  This user's favorite Pokémon is Porygon-Z.
    This user has a Shiny Starmie.  
Those are userbox templates. You can add them to your userpage by putting the following:
<div class="userbox" style="width: 230pt;">

...and then below that, putting the userbox templates, such as {{User Male}} and so on to make what appears to the right. Don't forget to end the list with a </div> to close it up. If you don't use the beginning part, then the userboxes will take up the full width of the page (I personally find that ugly and annoying), and if you don't close the div, then the rest of your page will be stuck within it.

And about editing, well, pretty much see Wikipedia's version. Just make sure to look over our own manual of style in addition, because we have several quirks here that differ from Wikipedia. TTEchidna 00:27, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Project Decks

Oh yeah! I finally changed the picture on the Project Decks notice! I put in a picture of a box of Delta Species Theme Decks, and it's not perfect, but it looks better that that other thing. Tell me what you think. -Politoed666 00:35, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Hmmm... yes, it's good. Good enough for now, anyway. TTEchidna 00:39, 9 September 2007 (UTC)


I agree with the fact that I should use e-mail when asking about a ban, but I don't have your e-mail address. Don't worry, I'm not going to harass you or anything, but it could be important. Here's mine: [email protected] . -Politoed666 00:58, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

It's usually on the sidebar of user pages and user talk pages. TTEchidna 01:09, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
I don't see yours. It's okay if you want to keep it private, though. -Politoed666 21:36, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
Hmm... that's weird... Try it now. TTEchidna 21:37, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Colosseum Glitches (accent on e)

Hi TTEchidna! After I made the glitches section on Colosseum, you told me to accent and capitalise Pokémon properly. I see you or someone else has done it for me. One Question:How do you type the e with accent (é)? I am just copying and pasting this é

Promo pages

Since you've decided to merge the old Nintendo promos and the new DP ones, is it worth keeping the separate DP Promo article? Also, is it worth keeping the entire Nintendo promo list in the TCG Expansion sets category? I deleted it when I created the separate articles for the Nintnedo promos (like the Japanese promos, as the list was starting to get rather large), but Zhen Lin reverted it and decided to keep it. I think it looks a bit cluttered now, but I thought I'd better mention it before I do anything. nuva-kal 16:25, 9 September (BST)

Hmm... I personally think every separate numbering of promos should be separate: Wizards Black Star, Nintendo Black Star, and the DP ones. The problem is that all three of those use the same symbol. We differentiate between the POP series, so I do think that separating the three is best. TTEchidna 18:53, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
OK. Is it worth keeping the old Nintendo Promotional Cards article, which is currently in the the TCG Expansion sets category? It seems to stick out since all of the other Nintendo stuff has its own category... nuva-kal 09:57, 10 September 2007 (BST)
No, I don't think so. Split the lists off into their own pages. TTEchidna 09:18, 10 September 2007 (UTC)


How come this template won't work? --Shiny NoctowlTalk|Fun 19:44, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

1000+ Edits

I have made 1000 edits in the last month, yet you don't mention me on your user page when you are listing the other users who have made over 1000 edits in one month (the contribution pages are here and here). On those pages, you can see that the last edit at the end of the second page (edits 501-1000 from now) was on August 10th, and today is September 9th. Therefore, I have made over 1000 edits in one month. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Fun 00:51, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Hmmm... Well, technically, I took the data from the top contributors of the month page. You may have made 1000+ contribs in one month's time, but not within a specific month. Just keep contributing (and don't dare make ridiculously tiny edits) and you might be up there for September. It should be calculated on October 1, so all you gotta do is wait about three weeks. You were #5 on the last list, you'll no doubt be #1 or #2 on the next one (after me of course... bwahaha)... You've made almost 500 edits in September alone, anyway, so you're well on your way to being in the 1000+ club. TTEchidna 02:51, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
Oh. so it has to be all in one month. It can't be split between two months. Darn. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Fun 12:17, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
Don't worry, you'll get it soon. I'm sure of it. TTEchidna 20:43, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
Now I finally have over 1000 edits this month. See my contributions page. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Fun 01:27, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Do all contributions on my contributions page count, or only edits meeting a certain criteria? --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Fun 01:53, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
P.S. How can I use wikicode to generate a random number? --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Fun 18:31, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
P.P.S. Please answer me! --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Contribs 00:45, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
They only count if not in the User/User talk namespaces. And I don't think there is a random number generator... TTEchidna 01:46, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Secret Wonders/Shining Darkness

A majority of the revealed cards from Secret Wonders are Shining Darkness cards but with the addition of new cards from Japan's DP4 and probablly the removal of some (Darkai, Palkia, Dialga) , So I dont know if the 2 articles should be merged.

Hmm... We have an Aquapolis/Skyridge issue here... TTEchidna 23:49, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Massasge Lady

TTEchidna, I have just made a page called Massage Lady. I have put some info. in it and marked it as a stub. It is all about the massage lady in Veilstone (Generation IV). I was wondering if it is really necessary to have a page about her?


Hmmm... Not really. She doesn't really... do... anything important to warrant her own page. Making a mention of what she does on the pages on happiness and accessories is better. TTEchidna 21:53, 11 September 2007 (UTC)


The thing with you-know-who didn't work out. Turns out he really is telling the truth, so we'll just have to deal with his...creepiness. -Politoed666 23:37, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Hmm. TTEchidna 00:04, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Candidate for Speedy Deletion

Please mark Karen's Rapidash (VS087) as an article candidate for speedy deletion. It is horrible and does not at all meet the guidelines of project TCGDex. -Politoed666 00:45, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

It met the guidelines for the project before. It merely needs to be updated. TTEchidna 00:46, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Okay. That's good, then, but does anybody actually have a good example of the card they can use to update the article? And do you find it odd that it's the ONLY card from the entire VS set that has an article? -Politoed666 00:48, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Just use any of the cards with articles so far. Charizard is a good one... And... yeah that's weird. TTEchidna 00:50, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Friend Bow

How does this article not meet the quality standards? I am an avid player of mystery dungeon, and I just cleaned it up. There's not that much more one could say! -Politoed666

Well, when you think it doesn't need the cleanup/stub status any more... remove it. TTEchidna 01:38, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Okay! I didn't know I had the power to do that. -Politoed666 00:35, 13 September 2007 (UTC)


I've been trying to make tcg pages but I'm confused on a subject. Whenever I need to make a colorless energy graphic I originally started with this code (e|Colorless) but this other member kept telling me that the wrong way and I should be using this code to do it (e) then leaving me rude comments, so I started using that code and now you're changing them all back, which way is right? I'm trying to contribute but between rude comments and being told I'm doing things wrong its become discouraging and a real hassle to do anything. I used the minus signs so the graphic itself didn't appear when typing this. Jts21 20:25, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Oh, um, well, for retreat costs, just use {{e}}, but for type/attacks/weaknesses/resistances, use {{e|Colorless}}. Without any input, the e template makes just a Colorless symbol, but doesn't display the word "Colorless" when hovered over:  . With the input, though, it displays the correct type:  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  . For example:
    Elemental Blast
fixing problem
Discard a   Energy card, a   Energy card, and a   Energy card attached to Lugia in order to use this attack.
And who left the rude comments, and where at? I can have a talk with them. TTEchidna 20:55, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Moving Along

Can you help me fix this? This page needs deleting, and the content of this page needs to be moved back to there (in order to preserve the history). It's a big mess. Additonally, the move redirects for B óË ÁN should be fixed. However, it's difficult to reach the actual redirect page for them because of the double slash in the page name. And the guy could do with a warning, too. --DarkfireTaimatsu 21:16, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

...holy... what the hell. TTEchidna 21:22, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Deckslists! Oh Yeah!

Okay, I've finished two of the decklists, Haymaker and Barrier Swap. See what you think. I also left a little cautionary message at the bottom of each list as reassurance to anybody that that is not the only way to build the deck. Also, I asked that if anyone wants to change it, to please inquire on the talk page first. I wouldn't want a n00b adding a Charizard to the list because it's "cool." -Politoed666 01:08, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

I've made a notice template for that purpose. All you gotta do is put {{DeckArchetype}} above where the card list starts.
Also. {{TCG}} link template, Poli. Use it use it use it! TTEchidna 03:49, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
Weird...I could've sworn I used it whenever I could. Where specifically did I not use it? Oh, and the template is very good. -Politoed666 19:40, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
Also, I plan to standardize all the archtypes sometime in the near future. I hope to have them all look the same, with the infobox, summary, typical decklist, "cards" section (stating the purpose for every card in the deck), "If it were Legal Today" section, and the "restriction" section. Here's the page on it: User:Politoed666/Decks Template -Politoed666 19:44, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

In Windows, ALT+230 or ALT+0233. Or just click the é in the Character Palette. Zurqoxn 21:41, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
Alt-230? Doesn't that create "µ", a microsign used for metric measurements such as micrometers (µm) or micrograms (µg)? It sure as hell ain't Pokµmon, now, is it?
The actual Alt-### combination for é is Alt-130. --Shiningpikablu252 22:26, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

or as i have said, the easier way is type e while holding "AltGr" PichuLover


This is not relevant to anything but how come Mewtwo is before Mew in the Pokédex?????? Anyone?????????


Because Mew is the "secret guy". If they put Mew at 150 and Mewtwo at 151, anyone who caught Mewtwo--and the other 149--would be very confused by the space left. Mew's a hidden surprise, so it got labeled 151 so it wouldn't show up until someone got it. --DarkfireTaimatsu 19:36, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
Yep. Even if, after Gen I, those who didn't know about it would see Chikorita's number and be like "huh? Mewtwo's #150...". Same would happen after all the other generations, but by now, this is the age of the internets, everyone knows about Arceus, even if Nintendo never said it existed. TTEchidna 21:54, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Ahhhhh i always wondered... PichuLover

How... you change the way you sign off on talk pages? Optimus35 09:30, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

The "my preferences" link in the upper right-hand corner. It's under Nickname, and with raw signatures turned on, you can get something like what I have. TTEchidna 10:40, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Anyone know how to get a Mew on either Diamond or Sapphire? Any help would be appreciated. P.S i have the UK version (not japanese or US) PichuLover

Trade with someone else, or transfer it from a GenIII game. --DarkfireTaimatsu 19:38, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Can u plz answer my question?!?!? I'm sorry, i didn't know. The next day i felt i shouldnt ave, but it was too late then. and yes, i ave done the national Pokédex, coz if i haddent, how could i ave caught Giranta and Heatran? --Sonic 18:50, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

You could try to capture fifty flags in the underground, complete all the Master Rank Contests in Hearthome, make 100 consecutive wins at the Battle Tower, complete the National Pokédex and finally, proudly display this on your user page (this comes last):

Oh yes, I almost forgot. Can we edit other people's User Pages? Optimus35Talk | DP 09:22, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
Technically, yes. It's generally not a good idea, though. If you noticed a spelling error or something, though, yes. Just make sure you EXPLICITLY say so. You don't wanna piss someone off or freak them out. TTEchidna 20:36, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
Okay, then I'm gonna edit your page cos there are 23 admins, not 22! Check this page! (Yikes, he is seriously back in the times...) Optimus35Talk | DP 03:22, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Ah, but that counts BulbaBot. There are 22 without ol' Bulby. TTEchidna 03:28, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Hey! We're fellow Bulbapedians, we should include him as well (even if he's your enemy). Make it a friendly rivalry! Optimus35Talk | DP 05:43, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
But... BulbaBot's basically just an extension of Zhen... TTEchidna 05:50, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Oh...(crap)So...that means that one admin is actually two admins, but they are considered one admin. However, the Statistics say that the one admin is two admin...(I AM GETTIN CONFUSED!)To make a long story short, you're telling me that Bulbabot and Zhen Lin are the same person? Optimus35Talk | DP 07:00, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Sorta. Technically, BulbaBot's just a bot, it makes edits that are small and tedious, while Zhen does the non-bot edits. Zhen's the guy who programs BulbaBot, though, so I technically just consider BulbaBot to be part of him. TTEchidna 07:02, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

You're confusing me. I have no idea what a bot is. (Unless you're talking about a roBOT) Optimus35Talk | DP 12:19, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
It's pretty much just that... only not really a robot, just a program. TTEchidna 01:44, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Certainly. Also, you oughta use Psychic-attack.png instead of Physic-attack.png. We're likely gonna delete the second one as soon as it's no longer used, because it's uploaded at the wrong file. Otherwise, you could technically just use the {{e}} template, filling it in with Psychic and Fighting...    TTEchidna 06:43, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

TTEchidna, how did you get Mewtwo on Diamond? I mean, is there any way apart from trading from previous Gens? PichuLover

No possible way except to cheat or to Pal Park it from Gen III. TTEchidna 20:36, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

lol its my current dream to be a bulbapedia admin PichuLover

Well isn't everybodies? lol
Well just be calm. And improve your spelling and stuff. Using proper English is a good way to stand out among editors. TTEchidna 22:59, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Should we use proper English on talk pages, lik this one? --Sonic 18:57, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Use proper English EVERYWHERE. TTEchidna 01:43, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

TTEchidna's long signature

I noticed that you have a very long code for your signature. Might I advise doing as I do, and have a page where you keep your signature on your user page, and can then just link to it with "/sig". I makes everything less cluttered (I got it from Uncyclopedia, where most people have stupidly long signatures and they don't want the page edits being clogged up.) Gazco !!!! my page|Talk 22:52, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

True. Good idea. TTEchidna 22:00, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! Gazco !!!! my page|Talk

Did you know, TTEchidna, that Gazco is my brother? -.- PichuLover

...huh, really. TTEchidna 22:15, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

New Category.

Is there anyway to create a new category? If there is, there should be one for Users who want to become admins. Is this a bad idea? Optimus35Talk | DP 02:36, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Ehhh, well... It's usually a bad idea to ask outright to become an admin anywhere online. We current administrators have debated taking nominations in the past, but it's not what we're doing right now. Believe me, just do your part and make good edits, and you will surely be considered. After all, just follow my example: I never asked. I just sign on one day and pow, I've been selected. I was really, seriously surprised.
So, yeah, all you gotta do is keep making contributions. Be the gnome, but also be prepared to make pages, not just edit them (my first major accomplishment in this manner was the list of Pokémon by Sinnoh Dex number). Persist in good edits, and you'll be noticed. You already seem to have spelling and grammar down enough, and that's half the battle with a lot of new users. Heck, just by helping us out by telling new users who make crappy edits to a page to read the manual of style, you're gonna be on your way in my book. And while my book isn't the one that ultimately matters the most, well, I still have a say. So yeah. Don't ask, and you'll have a better chance of getting it than if you do. Just don't put all of your edits as minor. We don't pick out self-depreciating users, just users who stand out as the best. TTEchidna 03:45, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

If it is,how can I do that?


P.S.:Anwser me in my talk page (

Moving pages

If a non-admin user fills out the "move page" form, does it put information in a log for an admin to move a page? Or would we be better off putting stuff here? The page I was thinking of is Digger Drill, which, as a stub, should really be moved to The Underground. Gazco !!!! my page|Talk 10:29, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Digger Drill's an item. The Underground's a place. The Digger Drill's only as much of a stub as something like the SecretPotion. Technically anyone can move pages, but really, merging them is a complicated business. So... don't do it. Bring it up on the Digger Drill's talk page. TTEchidna 03:38, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Can you help?

Can you make me a template? I'm rubbish at making them myself (the ones on my page are Pichu Lover's but a few are edited; sorry!). Could it say "This user believes he is the No.1 Pokémon fan" and mabye a picture of one of those No.1 hands or a Pikachu or something. And mabye some advice on making them. Also, can you tell me how to get the 'My Talk' Thing on your signature? Sorry to bother you, --Sonic 19:10, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

That's just editing the different inputs of the {{User Template}}. See the example I have above for Lucas22. It's not too hard, all you gotta do is change a few things and then hit preview to see what it's done.
And as for how you get the "my talk" thing on the signature, well, you know how you entered that signature you have now (and I'm assuming you checked the "raw signatures" box, too), well, you need to link it. For example, you could have your signature be SonicPika!. Just copy that code into the "nickname" field. TTEchidna 20:55, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Dude, i seriously dont care if you steal my templates; they dont have my name or a copyright on them. It seemed complicated when i first started but when your into it, you can do it without thinking! You believe your the Number one fan and i just believe that i am a Pichu ^-^. P.S all the ones on my page are made completely from scratch so i have a little practice. Try this.
  This user believes he is the Number 1 Pokémon fan

If you want it, Copy and paste this:

Gen V competition

I was reading your page on new Generation V pokémon, when I had an idea - how about a competition, where people create these new pokémon, and people vote on which ones are best. To help show what the pokémon are about, I propose a sprite and a pokédex entry need to be created. The winners could receive an award which they can proudly display on their user page. Anyone think this is a good/bad idea? Gazco !!!! my page|Talk 19:23, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Dude i'm the one that showed you about TTEchidnas Gen V page. you have me to thank for your non- boredness! PichuLover
Well, it'd be better to leave it to the pros. Let Game Freak handle new Pokés. However, new ideas are nice, I think. TTEchidna 20:26, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Of course, Game Freak can design the actual Pokémon that are going to be used, but I just meant a little design competition as a bit of fun. Gazco !!!! my page|Talk 09:43, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Unnecessary Message

I think in the anime (also Yellow Version), Ash should start with a Pichu instead of a Pikachu because he could still evolve it into a Pikachu and also, it would help me in my quest to raise awareness to lost, hungry, homeless Pichus! Who's with me?

I think you should start using the {{TCG}} link template to link set names and such. Other than that... it looks good. TTEchidna 01:52, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I already use {{TCG}} to link to cards, but how do I use it to link to sets? -Politoed666 20:40, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
You use {{TCG ID}} to link the cards. The sets are linked just with {{TCG}}, like this: {{TCG|Base Set}} for Base Set. This is different than the TCG ID template because the inputs for that are {{TCG ID|Expansion|Card Name|Card Number}}, while for the TCG template it's just whatever has (TCG) after it, sort of like with the {{p}}, {{m}}, {{t}}, and {{a}} ones.

He's dissing Team Tornado because if we had an article for every rescue team (like Team Tornado), Archaic would have to lock up Bulbapedia to do some SERIOUS cleanup. Optimus35Talk | DP 01:33, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Team Tornado Sam

Is this site about Pokemon or what we're are and not aloud to do? I actually want to learn more about Pokemon than argue about this.

Well, first off, you're not allowed to make pages on stuff you just made up, at least not in the main namespace. Keep it on your userpage or on a subpage of it (these can be created by typing /(whatever) after your username). Checking the deletion log for stuff like Bawile will tell you enough for that. And... editing other users' userpages is frowned upon, especially if it's malicious like what you did to mine. Real bad move there.
And by "this site", if you mean Bulbapedia in general, yes, it's about Pokémon. With the é, not an e. And you're not really "aloud" to do anything. You're allowed, however, to edit pages and add information that means something to the community. And don't forget: Grammar, grammar, grammar is important, and you should love it. And "we're" implies "are" so... don't use "are" after it. You essentially said "we are are". Homophones needn't be mistaken for each other: their car is over there, and they're inside it.
As for more details, read over the manual of style, top to bottom, and don't skip anything. TTEchidna 08:27, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

I really don't know what you're talking about in the second paragraph and I have no clue how to put that ' thing above the p. And I'd really like to find some members that I can become friends with and talk heaps about Pkmn with if you know any.....

Grammar. That's what I'm talking about. And the é can be made differently depending on your OS. Windows and Mac ways to do it are on your talk page. Plus, it's in the character palette.
As for people that know about Pokémon... well, all of us do. TTEchidna 08:38, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Ph34r is back, and someone needs to stop him!! His user name is Ph34r4ever (pointed out above) and someone needs to stop him!! He's already taken over his user page ( it says Attention: This page has been taken over by ph34r.) I can't block him ( I don't know how) but I bet you can!--Sonic(No.1fan) 16:56, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Sorry to break your feelings, but I think he has his own rights to take over HIS user pages. *snort*

Yeah... but he really hasn't done much *ho sh-* yet. Why should we block him now, it's the same for the "Ph34r.", he hasn't done anything right now. TinaTheKirlia 17:03, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Signature Help

Can you make a signature that looks like the one I already have only change the Pikachu into this and it has 'Sonic Pikachu' where Sonic is. Sonic (no.1fan)

PS: My signature isn't working.

PPS: What's Shiny Gold? It's on Youtube, and Google and everything!

Errmm... well, you'd be better off using one of the sprites we have already... like  . And the Minisprites are better still, because then you don't have to shrink 'em. And I can't figure out how come your signature wouldn't work, all you need is four ~.
And ShinyGold is a ROM hack of FireRed that's set in Johto. TTEchidna 21:07, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

How about this:Sonic Pikachu

[[User:No.1fan|<span style="color:#FFFF00;">Sonic</span>]] [[User talk:No.1fan|<span style="color:#FFFF00;">Pikachu</span>]]

Hm, okay. TTEchidna 04:25, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Data structure is OK but no mention of its usefulness is allowed? WTF?

You mercilessly deleted the article on the character set Pokémon uses, AND the article on how to manually trade Pokémon (!), which makes the information in the Pokémon data structure in the GBA article in the game mechanics a whole lot less useful. What gives? That was flat out rotten and mean-spirited.

For what its worth, I bought the cartridge and it remains under my roof. I prefer not to play it on a tiny screen with no backlight, and in order to accomplish a trade between games, the solution I described was necessary. Even the unpopular and restrictive DMCA allows people to do such things for the purpose of compatibility issues, which is what was at stake here (VBA 1.8's link function seems totally broken), so I have no idea what your objection is based on.

I realize, however, the character set's article's set-up could have been a whole lot better. And while we do mention the data structure, we prefer to let people figure out for themselves how to use it. If we didn't, we'd have


instead of its moveset. TTEchidna 02:33, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
An article on how to manually trade Pokémon using an emulator is not notable no matter how you put it. The character table wasn't very good, plus it only took Generation III into account, and the fact it was seen as an accessory to an article about hacking made it an easy candidate for deletion. Maybe if you spend more time doing research--and less time licking (or should I say "lieking") Mudkips to get some kind of high--you could have come up with a truly great character table that took all generations into account...--Shiningpikablu252 02:39, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
A bit harsh, Pikablu, but to the point. Honestly, though, an article on the character table should be split up between generations. TTEchidna 02:44, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
I don't even own any Gen 2 carts, the GF has something from Gen 1, and were I to decide to bootleg roms I don't own, I probably wouldn't want to write about it in great detail. This apparent multi-generational requirement (did the character set even change? if so, why not mention it rather than erasing a different one?) for an article to be allowed to exist in the first place demands an investment I'm not willing to make today, and also prevents other users who may have made a different part of that investment (Gen 2, Gen 4) from completing it; basically that requirement alone is going to narrow your legal contributors of new articles (non-copyvio writing performed on purchased games) down to those who have spent hundreds of dollars on one game alone.
I never made any claim that the article was complete or perfect; the entire point of a wiki is that it enables a group effort that eventually arrives at that goal without requiring any real coordinated cooperation. Just a willingness to not slaughter material rather than improve it or simply leave it the hell alone, and administrators who won't foster this sort of hostile environment which strongly discourages productive contributions of any type in anyone who's been a victim of it.Iliekmudkips 01:26, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
