Pokémon Legends: Arceus Version

Why was this deleted? It was made for people who mistakenly use the wrong link template and complain about the resulting redlink.

I did create the Super Glitch (move) (intentionally typing the full title) redirect again because deleting it caused so many redlinks to suddenly pop up, based on how the learnset template works. Creating Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Versions was a measure to prevent redlinks from the wrong link template. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 08:06, 20 March 2022 (UTC)

Next time, please ask first.
We don't encourage people linking to bad targets. If a target is linked to, I'll consider it staying, but the "version" title is not linked to.
I do notice that many games have various redirects. I checked one, https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/w/index.php?title=Pok%C3%A9mon_Brilliant_Diamond_and_Shining_Pearl_Versions&redirect=no, and it does have links. I'm sure others don't. Honestly, I think some could definitely be pruned, but it's not worth it for me to try to exhaustively examine all the past games. For now, like I said, a "version" title for Arceus isn't linked to and isn't needed. Tiddlywinks (talk) 11:54, 20 March 2022 (UTC)
Scarlet and Violet got the "version" redirect out of practice. As prior to XY, all titles had the version in their names. For LA, it has never been referred to with the "version" in the end. If someone incorrectly uses the version templates (and any of its variations) for Legends, that's kinda their own fault.--ForceFire 11:57, 20 March 2022 (UTC)

Talk:Game-exclusive Pokémon/Archive1

I thought I'd let staff know, if they didn't already, that the archived talk page for Game-exclusive Pokémon still needs to be moved to Version-exclusive Pokémon. Thanks! Landfish7 05:04, 6 May 2022 (UTC)
