By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

I see you got the tags in. Sorry that work ended up left fully to you, I did try to get the tags column in but it just didn't let me save. Seems fine now... CycloneGU (talk) 01:44, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, seems like the site is fixed mostly. I'm gonna try getting everything up to Snowbelle and Lumiose City done today. (Voltdetector (talk) 01:47, 22 September 2014 (UTC))

Adding city boutiques

Just an FYI, there's really no reason to split your edits into one adding male clothing and one adding female clothing. Just make one edit to add both the male and female tables. Tiddlywinks (talk) 03:08, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

I was separating them because I was worried about them getting through. But I'll start trying to add both in. (Voltdetector (talk) 03:15, 22 September 2014 (UTC))
Voltdetector, I added a colon to space out your reply. This is typical on talk pages; each colon indents the reply further to make it easy to see who's replying to who.
In any case, Tiddlywinks, I think it was more an amount of work issue. Also, if you click to edit just the section that has male, you have to go back to edit female. There is nothing wrong with doing two edits (one on each side) to make sure you don't make one mistake in the whole thing. As long as it's not excessive, all is well. CycloneGU (talk) 01:41, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, thanks. I didn't know that then but I have since learned. Also, the sections didn't existed then, fyi. And you can just edit the boutique section to do both. Oh, and you can just preview the whole thing to see if you made any mistakes. Voltdetector (talk) 02:56, 23 September 2014 (UTC)


There is still a hat at Snowbelle City's Boutique on Tuesdays. And a bag. CycloneGU (talk) 06:37, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Alright. Is it for males? Because that's something only you can help with. Voltdetector (talk) 07:21, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
FYI, I'm checking all cities for both genders. (I started yesterday.) I'm not saying not to fix anything you find if you want, but I will make it all right soon enough. (I'd like to incorporate the verified data at the same time that I replace the current tables with a template; but approval for a template could take some time, so I might also just correct the current tables eventually too.)

Hidden Grotto encounters

Hi. For our edification, can you specify where you got the rates you recently added for Hidden Grotto encounters? Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 03:52, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

As far as I can tell, isn't Voltdetector just adding the rates that have already been on the Hidden Grotto article for the past three and a half years? (Although I didn't check all of their contributions, so if I'm wrong, I guess the ones I checked just coincidentally were the same as the ones on the Hidden Grotto page.) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 04:05, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
Oh. I still haven't played all the way through B2/W2, so that's not a page/subject I've paid really close attention to. I'm still not immediately sure where the data is from, so I may have to look more carefully some time later. Tiddlywinks (talk) 13:38, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
Can confirm, was just grabbing the rates from the Hidden Grottos page.--Voltdetector (talk) 09:26, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Kaphotics had actually posted an explanation and what appear to be useful links at the talk. (The dropbox link appears to be dead, but this and this appear to be mirrors of sorts.) I haven't checked very thoroughly, but from what I can tell the edit to the actual article just followed the same logic, adding up percentages properly. Nescientist (talk) 15:35, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Userspace edits

Hi there! In regard to the approximately 70 edits you've made to User:Voltdetector/Pokéstar Studios characters in the past 24 hours or so, I just wanted to remind you of Bulbapedia's userspace policy and the edit limits noted within. Although those limits are often not strictly applied to pages that are destined for the mainspace, I really do think 70 is quite excessive and I hope you'll understand and try to limit the number of times you hit "save page". If I may, I suggest using the preview button, as well as using the "edit this page" button at the top instead of editing each section individually. Thanks for your consideration. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 03:16, 6 October 2017 (UTC)


Please never take info from Serebii, or generally other random fansites. These should be sourced from reliable data, not second-hand. It also amounts to stealing. Please keep this in mind. Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:57, 1 February 2018 (UTC)


Several of your links could use improving. For example:

  • [[Rotom Bike|Rotom Bike's]] -> [[Rotom Bike]]'s
  • [[:Category:Friendship-raising Berries|Friendship-raising Berries]] -> {{cat|Friendship-raising Berries}}

--FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:28, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Was not aware of the second one, so thanks for that. However, on the first one, I feel like it looks better when the 's is part of the link, so that's why I've been doing it like that. Unless there's something in the style guide I've not seen before. Voltdetector (talk) 11:54, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Clothing templates

I've updated the clothing templates for you to add the company logos whenever you get the time. Unfortunately not all the company logos use the same naming system (namely the non-Poké Job companies such as the Galar League logo), which means you need to write out the whole name of the image file name. --Wowy(talk) 05:14, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Just a heads up, there are playthroughs on YouTube you can use as a reference point for female character clothing. This user [1] uses a female protagonist, while this one [2] has all the new clothes. I know it's bit of a pain to trawl through, though. --Wowy(talk) 06:07, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
