Spoiler links

I had to revert your edits to DP002 and DP003 because the links you put in were considered spoilers. I faced a similar situation before and the issue was settled here. Only on consecutive episode lists does this rule hold though. It's fine to do so on other articles, but not on episode articles. For example, Ash's Starly would have to be mentioned as Starly until DP013, when it can be addressed as Staravia, and then up to DP118, when Staravia can be addressed as Staraptor. --rockersk08 00:24, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Link templates

It's good to see you've got the hang of these. However, I notice you are manipulating some templates to display what could be coded with a simpler template. For example, poison type is better written as Poison-type - and it's grammatically accurate as well. A full list of link templates can be found here. —darklordtrom 07:14, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

"Other Methods"

Surely trade-based evolution counts as another method? I ask as you reverted my edit, and was just curious as to how you came across this conclusion. Especially since it's mentioned in the Methods of evolution article, which is why I've taken the liberty of changing it back to level 1. --No-one is going to give you a lvl 100 Regigigas for a level 1 Magikarp. 20:10, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

The reason I reverted it was because it said level up, not just other methods. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 20:13, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Fair enough. I'll fix it. --No-one is going to give you a lvl 100 Regigigas for a level 1 Magikarp. 20:17, 7 August 2009 (UTC)


Did you by any chance find out if Magneton has a Sitrus Berry too? Because ht14 says it does, but I didn't think so... R.A. Hunter Blade 18:37, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I found out that it doesn't have a Sitrus Berry. Atleast in Emerald it doesn't. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 18:59, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. That's what I needed. Now I need to check if it has one in any of the other battles... R.A. Hunter Blade 19:47, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Supreme Victors

Unless you are going to update everything, don't edit anything at all. MaverickNate 01:19, 10 August 2009 (UTC)


Learn how to spell it. --CuboneKing 23:40, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey, just wondering. Do you own the books you are creating articles for? We sure could use some actual content on the pages and that's the only way to get it. —darklordtrom 20:53, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
No, every book except Splashdown in Cerulean City I got from the library. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 20:54, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Well seeing as you actually have (or have access) to them, would you mind fleshing out the synopses at some point? They're all looking very bare. I'd rather have one complete book article than twenty empty ones. —darklordtrom 21:09, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Link templates

We have a {{Badge}} you know. MaverickNate 18:50, 15 August 2009 (UTC)


{{TPCD}}. Call it with subst: (like the welcome). Also, when you create a book article please put more on it than just headers. Having a huge list of page creations is all very nice, but almost all your articles are empty. Like I said above, quality over quantity. —darklordtrom 20:55, 17 August 2009 (UTC)


i just scanned all the Gen I sprite trivia that was incorrectly removed, and re-added the notable ones. -- MAGNEDETH 23:07, 25 August 2009 (UTC)


The only reason I'm stating that it's male is because of this.--Dark ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 22:33, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

OK but that last edit I reverted because it said the teacher was male when the teacher was actually female. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 22:34, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, that was my mistake...I thought the sentence was referring to Snover. D:--Dark ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 22:35, 29 August 2009 (UTC)


1 edit? Huh? Agentti.agentti 12:29, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Actually you did 11 compared to 0 in the mainspace (every article without prefixes, like Wattson). Turtwig A Contributions Talk 12:32, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

but how i going to do - unsigned comment from Magmortar9 (talkcontribs)

Try making these articles better. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 22:30, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

see DP118 talk page

look at headline Yami 13:02, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

I specifically mean the Dub edit section. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 13:05, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Oh i see sorry, the dialog was misleading. I didn't know which section you meant Yami 13:10, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Sorry about that.

YEah, I do use the preview button frquently, but when I finish I always end up finding more user tags to add to my userbox. Sorry, I will take this and avoid doing the same mistake in the future. Thanks!- unsigned comment from Epicsnail (talkcontribs)

Just edit the mainspace about double the times you edited the userspace and you'll be fine. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 23:39, 5 September 2009 (UTC)


I know, we already covered that. user:Tommy-SAN

OK sorry. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 16:59, 7 September 2009 (UTC)


i dont want to sound like im angry with you, but please dont jump into a conversation like that one unless its obvious im not going to reply. its sort of annoying typing up a paragraph of hate and then get an edit conflict. in short, you were right, but give me a little time to respond next time. -- MAGNEDETH 00:48, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Please read the userspace policy. You may be unaware of the history behind the warning system. An editor you recently warned has been inactive since 2007, before this was in place. Making one edit after a two year hiatus is not enough to elicit a warning even if all the edits he made were to his userpage. I'd also like to remind you that making five or six edits in a row is not necessarily bad if these edits are over a few days. Please keep this in mind when you warn users. Thanks. —darklordtrom 20:33, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

My English

Sorry, my english isn't very good. Did you said that i musn't do a lot of changes in my page? User:UGUR 20:45, 19 September 2009 (UTC+3)

Yes, but I also meant that if you do a lot of edits to pages in the mainspace like Empoleon, you can edit your page more. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 17:49, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Move tutor upgrade

About this, that is part of the upgrade isn't it? At least that's how I interpreted the instructions here. Myles 17:13, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Oh I misread the instructions then before this sorry. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 17:14, 20 September 2009 (UTC)


I read the trivia wrong. Sorry if I offended you in my edit summary. No hard feelings? I'm back! Alpha CuboneKing 23:08, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Sorry for what? Turtwig A Contributions Talk 23:15, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
Porygon2's page. I removed the trivia, you reverted it, and then I reverted you and said in my edit summary about how you but into people's conversations. I know you don't do that anymore. No hard feelings? I'm back! Alpha CuboneKing 23:17, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
Sure no hard feelings. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 23:17, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
Phew! You don't know how grateful I am. I'm back! Alpha CuboneKing 23:20, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Italian interwiki

We have created Mewtwo page in Italian version of Bulbapedia (called Pokémon Central Wiki). See I have just done the interwiki from Italian to English, and now i want to do the interwiki from English to Italian. Bye. --Abcd 15:56, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

It isn't part of Encyclopaediae Pokémonis yet so it doesn't link to there. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 15:57, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Why it isn't yet part of EP? In Italian version I SUCCESSFULLY added 7 interwiki, including English. Do you know when it will be part of EP? Thanks --Abcd 16:07, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

No, I don't know. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 16:08, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
Wikis in new languages don't just join Encyclopaediae Pokémonis the moment they're created. Instead, they have to have aspirations to join, not buckle under the pressure when it comes to heavy load when word of mouth spreads, and work hard to make their articles good. Only once these qualities pass and a few additional criteria are met can a wiki formally join the group. Nevertheless, those that aspire tend to add interwiki links to the existing Encyclopaediae Pokémonis wikis during their early stages (and possibly even add those that join before them at those points), but the existing wikis don't add links back to that wiki until the formal joining at the earliest (in fact, Wikinezka and LANDpedia still don't interwiki-link to Pokéteca). Trust me, inter-wiki linking in Spanish didn't work until shortly before Pokéteca's formal addition to the group, and this Italian case is no different.
Don't worry, odds point to inter-wiki linking in Italian working by the time the Wii game Tsunekazu Ishihara recently hinted at hits American shores...--Shiningpikablu252 16:51, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Now I understand (even if I laboured to understand your English).--Abcd 16:58, 27 September 2009 (UTC)


I finally found someone I can talk with. Please, say what do you think about what I wrote in Talk:MissingNo.#Missingno. in Italian Pokèmon Yellow

I don't know. You're better off asking someone who knows more about glitches like Missingno. Master. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 16:21, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Ok, thank you --Abcd 16:25, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Quick nonsensical question

Did you get the idea to do {{sUbSt:Welcome}} from me? I'm back! Alpha CuboneKing 22:44, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Undo Revision

Why did you undo my changes? Even though there wasn't many bytes of data, the pages still had pretty much all of the info that could be written about them without inserting blather and nonsense. --Swampertrox (bleh) 22:19, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

In the visual round article, information about what item fits into what category could be there. For contest category though, you can revert my edit. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 22:22, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
Wouldn't the information about which items are in which categories be in some other page? --Swampertrox (bleh) 21:51, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Actually, I just noticed that that is already in the accessories page. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 22:28, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I'll delete the stub tag then. --Swampertrox (bleh) 01:48, 5 October 2009 (UTC)


do you know were i can watch pokemon DP 127 and up with SUBTITLES and NO downloading!- unsigned comment from Jackjt8 (talkcontribs)

No i do not. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 20:08, 11 October 2009 (UTC)


Under animebooks. I did it too, but I wasn't thinking. —darklordtrom 22:11, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Did what? Turtwig A Contributions Talk 22:12, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
Project tag goes under the navtemplate. —darklordtrom 22:17, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
Ok, then I'll fix that part of my edits. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 22:18, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
