Talk page

Thanks for helping answer that question. TTEchidna 21:55, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

You're welcome. Zurqoxn 22:00, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Trainer Card

Well, let's just say that it's the final goal in the game. Everytime you acheive a certain condition during the game, your card will gain one star. When you complete all five conditions, you would have completed the game. These are the conditions for Pokémon Diamond and Pearl:

  • Achieve Hall of Fame
  • Complete the National Pokédec (You do not need to get the Pokémon that are obtainable through Nintendo events, however, you need all 12 starters in all 3 forms.)
  • Achieve 100 consecutive wins at the Battle tower
  • Win the Master Class at all five contests.
  • Your Underground Flag is Platinum.

That's it! Optimus35Talk | DP 07:39, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Ok fine.

But redlinks are still harmful for en encyclopedia, next time I will make an article instead of delinking, like the sound of that? TheBlazikenMaster 22:25, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

That works. Zurqoxn 22:46, 27 September 2007 (UTC)


Why is there a Primeape sprite before Blaziken? -Politoed666

Thanks. I can't believe I never noticed that! Zurqoxn 01:18, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

No problem. -Politoed666

Your Message

I believe I already made a topic about it on the forums and i said something about editing the pages with TCG attacks. However, after reading them, I noticed that I only was going to add real attacks and not exclusive TCG attacks. Attacks like Headbutt on Caterpie are fine, but anything else isn't. So I am going back and removing all the non-real attack TCG moves. Pie has approved this and said I can add real attacks only learned in the TCG.

MDupont 3:15, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

I agree that it needs a discussion.

But what would be the proper place to discuss this? TheBlazikenMaster 13:08, 10 November 2007 (UTC)


i give all my pokemon nicknames, every single one (even the ones i catch and shove into a box), and frankly, you sir have some EXCELLENT nicknames, i tip my hat to you.. (btw, i myslef named Snorlax "Fatass" i also have one named "Tub-O-Lard")

MAGNEDETHTALK 02:43, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

In my other Gen3 games waiting to be Pal Parked, my Pokémon include a Rest / Sleep Talk Lapras called "Napras" (attacks while taking a nap), a Mewtwo called "Goku" (as powerful as the DBZ hero), and I always name my Ditto "Slut" because it has babies with many different partners. Zurqoxn 03:03, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

im a little afraid to say i also have a couple of dittos named "slut". one in my Silver game which started as a lv.15 and is currently at lv.82. also in my saphire game ive got a slut and one in diamond. MAGNEDETHTALK 03:17, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
My dotto's named Quagmire! KPF 07:11, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Alriiight!! KPF 07:40, 1 January 2008 (UTC) ...okaythatsenoughtofthat...
XD, you people can think of so many good names for Ditto. I chose to name mine after Virgo the virgin. OptimatumTalk|06:28 10 Mar 2008


Whats a sandbox? KPF 06:48, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

I think it's a page to experiment with random wiki code, but not completely sure. Why are you asking me? Zurqoxn 07:00, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Happy Anniversary

yea that. MAGNEDETH 04:47, 23 January 2008 (UTC)


Why did you change my Header edit? I've asked TTEchidna beforehand about making them smaller and he agreed to let me do this... though I should have gone in order XD! Yeah, I'm changing them so they start with two == rather than just one =. TESHIGIGAS 16:19, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Oh, OK. Yeah you probably should have gone in order. Zurqoxn 20:03, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I should have. Oh well... no big Woop! XD Lol.. TESHIGIGAS 17:30, 27 March 2008 (UTC)


Yours seems to be screwed up damn bad. Optimatum♏Talk|11:37 13 Apr 2008


Do you have an AIM or other instant messager? I'd like to talk with you about something. --ニョロトノ666 23:09, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Nope, none of them. How about I email you when I get home from work. Don't email me, I no longer use the Yahoo email I signed up to Bulbapedia with and prefer not to post my current address. I'm really curious about what you have to say to me that can't be said here. Zurqoxn 16:14, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Preview button

Please, use it. Insteaed of making about 4 edits to the same page, use the preview to make sure it's all okay before saving. Otherwise, you clog the recent changes page. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 14:05, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

I do preview. The multiple edits you're seeing is me editing by section. I've always done it that way. I just find it easier to see things to change in article mode rather than in edit mode with all the wiki-codes. Zurqoxn 14:15, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
If you say so, then. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 14:18, 7 January 2009 (UTC)


You know, at the Diamond section with in Box, it isn't oldest, it should be eldest. Just letting ye know. Hoolo 17:26, 30 June 2009 (UTC)


Well, it does say prior to Gen IV, doesn't it. Too bad Head Smash was introduced in Gen IV, at least, that's what it says on the page. Hoolo 15:04, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

D'oh! Zurqoxn 15:07, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
So you see, I actually did do my homework before editing. Hoolo 15:48, 1 July 2009 (UTC)


Where'd you get that anyway? Scizor...Octillery...uhh...that's more than a few... I count seven. Use the correct info before posting... ht14 13:30, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

In other languages

Ohai there. I can see how putting quotes is standardizing, but definitely not how putting a French entry under the German one is. Is there a reason, so we may all standardize the same way?--KIROCHI) (talk) 16:41, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Not really, just because there are more german->french than french->german, so changing the f->g to g->f is less work than the other way around. Zurqoxn 16:53, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

In other languages

Please do not unhide it and leave blank entries. --SnorlaxMonster 13:31, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

And please, if you're going to put the French and German names, do it at once instead of double-editing. Masatoshitalk 13:35, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
Oh, horrors, it was left blank for all of 10 minutes. But because you asked nicely, I'll try it your way. Zurqoxn 13:37, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
Please, make all of your changes in one edit, rather than multiple. It is much less stressful on the server, especially in its current state. --SnorlaxMonster 14:16, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
This is your final warning; continuing to do so will result in a block. Please make only one edit to each page; it's less stressful on the server. Just click "edit" on the top, not at the side, and make your edits on the respective sections. ht14 17:17, 20 April 2011 (UTC)


You have been blocked for a day. Please listen to our warnings next time, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask one of the administrators before taking action. ht14 17:23, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Other languages

Mainly for the sake of stylistic consistency; the vast majority of entries in the tables are sentence fragments. I went back and forth over it for a bit, but this seemed like the better option to me. Bikini Miltank 14:50, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Meltan / Melmetal gen vii sprites

Meltan / Melmetal don't display correctly at the moment, since there is currently no Spritebox template for the LGPE sprites. The 'Spritebox/7' template only supports sprites from SMUSUM, which Meltan and Melmetal don't have. AmbientDinosaur (talk) 18:20, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

P template

I highly appreciate that you're adding the {{p}} template to Pokémon links that lack it. Just one small thing: the template usually uses a lowercase p across Bulbapedia, not uppercase, like you've been using. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:39, 1 December 2021 (UTC)


For redirects of misspellings we:

  1. Don't use the parentheticals as it would cause confusion when someone misspells a name using the {{p}} template and, seeing that the link is blue, will assume they spelled it correctly.
  2. Don't need two redirects for non CamelCase names as searches are case sensitive, so Tapukoko will still redirect to Tapu Koko using TapuKoko regardless.--ForceFire 17:35, 3 December 2021 (UTC)


There's no need to switch the orders. The template will automatically arrange them, not to mention that I'm planning to update the template to put Mandarin on top of Cantonese. --超龍Chao 01:13, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

Good to know. I wish you had told me that while I was changing them, before I changed hundreds. Zurqoxn (talk) 15:06, 30 March 2022 (UTC)
Just letting you know: if a template has named parameters, their order does not matter at all. That is, {{foo|bar=1|baz=1}} is the same as {{foo|baz=1|bar=1}}. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 16:13, 30 March 2022 (UTC)
Check my note on Rampardos. I tried leaving it for a half hour. I just got more and more anxious, I could barely think about anything else. OCD is a bitch sometimes. Zurqoxn (talk) 16:19, 30 March 2022 (UTC)
You edited them while I happened to be out. Not to mention, you could have just asked for the preferred order first before changing hundreds of them. By the way, the template has already been updated with the new order. If you insist on consistency, just undo your edits instead of editing after me. I still have some hundreds of articles to update with the new order in place. --超龍Chao 00:51, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
