Appearance

If I remember correctly, there are alrady Appearance sections on Pokémon pages. Dominoes I guess? 13:45, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Oops, I misunderstood it as sections instead of separate pages. I just think that a separate page may not be entirely necessary; we can just list every appearances with table templates (although X would oppose listing minor appearances). Dominoes I guess? 13:50, 3 April 2021 (UTC)
Then we should make them into their own pages once they are too big, don't you think? Dominoes I guess? 14:04, 3 April 2021 (UTC)
All right. :) Dominoes I guess? 14:08, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Oh, that would be too harsh for users. Many prefer using visual editor than source (and don't know how to use sourse editor), and we should just recommend instead of forcing them to do so. Dominoes I guess? 08:24, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

I use the 2010 source editor (hence why there are no tags shown in my edits). :) Is it named like that? I don't really remember. Dominoes I guess? 08:30, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
That's weird.
Also, regarding the Trainer class Macro Cosmos's (the one you edited earlier), it was created by Kittystyler as "Macro Cosmos employees" (in which Macro Cosmos's is the official name). Should we rename their Pokémon pages (e.g. Macro Cosmos employee's Steelix to "Macro Cosmos's Steelix")? More importantly, how should we handle with this special case of "s's"? Dominoes I guess? 08:42, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
Welp, I know that we would usually drop the "s" if the word ends in "s" already. So should we keep the "s" in this case only or not? Dominoes I guess? 08:49, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
Sure. :) Dominoes I guess? 08:54, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

Page

I think you fixed it with your edit, I don't see anything wrong. Except the long walkthrough, but that's something else.

Also, I would like to ask not to use the "small" HTML tag for the dates here. Why not use those references that you already used for the volume pages? Energy X 15:41, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Not sure if that is our thing, you might try reporting this to the Staff. Energy X 18:26, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Page

It's been released, and should be renamed. On the matter, do you think we should also move main character pages like "Red (games)" to just "Red"? It's just that most pages don't have the (games) tag because it already implies to be a game article, unlike anime or manga for which it is denoted in the name. Energy X 22:07, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Trainer class Pokémon

Are there currently any templates for showing a Trainer class' Pokémon? Dominoes I guess? 12:18, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

Interesting. Guess I'll create them myself, I think. Dominoes I guess? 12:29, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

Just saw the plan to rename item sprites in your sandbox. There are much more than those you have listed to be renamed (for example, the majority of Berry sprites do not have "Sprite" in their file names). Other than this, I'd support that. :) Dominoes I guess? 09:43, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

So that's another one of your dead projects? Interesting. Dominoes I guess? 09:58, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

Yep. I've discovered that when I am importing some useful JS from the dev fandom. The only issue I have with this is that you can't make any edit summaries other than "automatic". Dominoes I guess? 01:43, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

Exactly. :) Dominoes I guess? 09:04, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Never actually thought of that, but I do notice many attention about the Korean side of Pokémon in this wiki. It's just out of my knowledge, so I didn't care much about it... lol. Dominoes I guess? 09:17, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Okay and thank you. Kittystyler talk 7:30, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

Focusing on Berries right now, so...

  1. I've started to revamp Japanse e-Reader Berries this week. I have never done Japan-exclusive stuffs before, so do you have any opinions on it?
  2. TheWikiOddish is helping on the Berry pages by adding their design origins and etymology. Just to notice you about it since that adds a new Origin section.

Dominoes I guess? 09:26, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

I've known that the first 10 Berries will be super hard to edit, but still, I heavily underestimated the difficulty. I'll still keep revamping them, because Wynaut? Dominoes I guess? 15:21, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
That seems to be a great idea. :) Maybe we should add a parameter that enables the table to be collapsible? Dominoes I guess? 09:18, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Turns out it's just that a ton of Trainers before X and Y would use Sitrus Berries. The location overload won't be a thing for the next 9... I guess? Dominoes I guess? 13:19, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Just added a gallery at the end of the BerryInfo template which will automatically add Berry Tag images if they are available. :) Dominoes I guess? 14:03, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

Image

Ah, alright. I'll try and get a better image. I've had the image laying on my desktop for some time so I don't think I checked it before uploading. I also don't have a proper source to take screenshots of the anime episodes so it may be a bit difficult for me to find one without using the episode preview trailer. I've tried finding some sort of website to watch the Japan episodes but you know how shady those websites can be. IMG 6982.png 15:43, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

I did try to make the reference appear for the VolumeBox but failed. In fact, it looks like it doesn't work for PokémonCharacterBox, as seen here. It sounds like you have to manually type the whole reference, it won't work being automated in the infobox. Energy X 21:35, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Fixing a page

Hi Ellis been some while how are you doing? I just got off discussions and have spotted maybe a page that i was wondering if you can fix it up on via Melmetal...- https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Melmetal

A user on discussion said that it's move pools i think in the Tm one's is it true that Melmetal can learn Solarbeam?

If so i thought i point it out in a fixing if it's incorrect can you look into it?

Ah but can it learn it via tm move? - made me wonder small bit..

Reason Dumb man 3 pointed it out via here on post - https://pokemon.fandom.com/f/p/4400000000003428131 See if it was incorrect or something here is what he said:

This might look like a repost but solar beam was fixed but almost all of the moves melmetel learns that this wiki says is incorrect so please fix it to make people smart about it’s TM move pool

I'll try and fill it out out, though I've never done an episode plot before for an episode that's aired in Japan first. I've asked TPG for a source but they haven't gotten back to me and all of the sources I try to look for have really bad English subs, though I guess I could just try to make out what happens. I don't know if it'll be all too well structured as the other plots I've written but I'll try nonetheless. IMG 6982.png 14:22, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

YouTube is mainly what I use since it's the safest, and I think I've found what you're talking about. I'll get right onto writing the plot. IMG 6982.png 14:28, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Alright, I'll get to it in a bit. I have been a bit busier than usual today but I do have a bit of upcoming free time, so I'll start on it when I get there. Thank you for reminding me. IMG 6982.png 18:38, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
No problem! I'll be sure to remember doing next week's episode too. IMG 6982.png 21:54, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
Done! IMG 6982.png 16:15, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Done! IMG 6982.png 15:56, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Finished! IMG 6982.png 16:25, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
This is also sort of unrelated to the episodes but I wanted to see what classifies a Pokémon in the "Recurring" category for the Goh's Pokémon template. I wanted to try and clean it up if that's possible since I feel that the Recurring category doesn't entirely make sense for some Pokémon. Goh's Alolan Exeggutor is listed as recurring despite only appearing majorly in one episode (it's debut episode) while Goh's Dewgong isn't listed as such while having multiples appearances/uses in episodes. I wanted to know if there was any particular reasoning or listing for the Pokémon and, if I can, I'd like to sort it out. IMG 6982.png 16:54, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
I'll try and brainstorm with it. For now, I'll just leave it unedited as is as I personally find the category a bit confusing because I'm taking into account the majority of a role and number of appearances. I'll just leave it. IMG 6982.png 17:15, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
Done! I'm also able to get some images now, though they aren't of high quality. I'm still trying to find a non-shady source for the episodes that is high quality, so it may take a while. I've also asked TPG for an episode source like you suggested some time ago, though they haven't got back to me due to inactivity, I suppose. IMG 6982.png 17:00, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

I've already done today's episode but thank you for the reminder. IMG 6982.png 15:46, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Why would we want to have two trailers? One of them that is kept temporary is good enough.

I can do etymologies too. I just finished the Pokémon Origin & Etymology project so the character biographies will be the next major thing I work on. IMG 6982.png 18:34, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Romaji

I'm a bit curious to know the reason to use doubling words instead of macrons in romaji. Is it because of the eduting rules or due to the fact that they are hard to type on keyboards? (I don't mean to use macrons instead starting from now though, I'm just curious about that.) Dominoes I guess? 10:38, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

That's interesting. Anyways, thanks. :)
Also, it seems like Kittystyler is very efficient in mass correcting pages. Dominoes I guess? 10:45, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

I think we should edit the Shard page so that it is up to the current item list standards. Dominoes I guess? 12:24, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for completing that page when I am busy doing some IRL stuffs. :)
By the way, if you have some missing Chinese names/translations in "in other languages" sections, you can leave it to me. Dominoes I guess? 13:16, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Other than that there are some places where the format is different from the usual one (e.g. the initial locations format), it's nice. :) Dominoes I guess? 14:43, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Regarding that PW template you've just created - I guess I have to backtrack on the Berry pages. It's not a bad thing, though. :) Dominoes I guess? 14:54, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

I'll try it. :)

By the way, just a reminder about the wild Pokémon held item thing: I usually present it as, for example, Held by wild [[Mew]] (100%). Also, if a Pokémon cannot be encountered as wild Pokémon in a version but it's coded to have a held item, then I won't list it (take the example of Mew, it is coded to always hold the Lum Berry in all games since RSE, but it can only be encountered as wild Pokémon in Emerald). Dominoes I guess? 22:51, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

The one above is just to clarify about how to present the held item thing and as a clarification to why I removed the entire FRLG section from the Shard location table. :) Dominoes I guess? 14:53, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
I think I have mixed thoughts for this - while it does remove repetitions, it would also make the table not reader-friendly when the words in brackets are too large for them to refer to. Dominoes I guess? 23:26, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
Sure. :) Dominoes I guess? 11:26, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
Interesting attempt to solve that problem. But is it fine to ask X about his opinion on how to present the info? Dominoes I guess? 11:53, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
Sure. :) Dominoes I guess? 11:57, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Rival pages

I've given it some thought and I guess you could add relationship section, but only to rivals - their Pokémon should be excluded from this. Might as well apply this logic to game and manga pages, too. Energy X 13:49, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

While we are at it you might as well include Etymology section, to display meanings behind character's names. Just a suggestion. Energy X 09:29, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Not sure what's to gain with that, or how would people use it or for what purpose. You might want to discuss this with some other people like FishTank about that. Energy X 20:48, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Pokémon Journeys: The Series

Currently adding the Chinese dub titles of Journeys episodes. :) (Pinyin of them will come later since the titles are too long.) Dominoes I guess? 12:24, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Also, I edited the BerryInfo template. A black outline is given to yellow text so readers can see it clearly (see Sitrus Berry). Dominoes I guess? 04:52, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

Should be yes, in case the titles are different between Mandarin and Cantonese. Although we should first consider that the cell shouldn't be too long. :) Dominoes I guess? 23:53, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

I think so. :) Though, of course, we should still add more languages to it, e.g. French and German names, if they are available. Dominoes I guess? 10:20, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
Exactly! Dominoes I guess? 10:28, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Just started including the PokéWalker in the locations table. Also edited the locations table a little bit so that section would look like this. Dominoes I guess? 11:40, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

  1. I don't think you should mix abilities and items, but there's something else that can be done about that. Some Pokémon have slight differences in what they wear, like Mega Stones or glasses. This might be something worth mentioning, since such Pokémon don't wear that normally.
  2. You don't need my permission to warn them, go ahead. Energy X 16:34, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Parameters

You know, I was thinking, there's not much of a point to declare a parameter just for references. We tried doing so you don't have to manually write the ref tag, but since it doesn't work, there's really not much of a point in adding an extra parameter.

And I'm guessing the "epages" in "en_epages" means the pages from electronic version, right? Maybe trying to rename it to "en_e-pages" so it's visually more understandable? Kinda like e-mail. Energy X 20:57, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

Edit

As you are doing work on Collector's Edition pages, I have been motivated to make box set pages, like this one. How about reviewing it?

And before you ask, no, I don't think it would work to link all seven volumes through the {{Main}} template. Energy X 17:40, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Main page

I'll change the Sword & Sheild slot in the main page into New Pokémon Snap once it is released. See my sandbox. Dominoes I guess? 14:01, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Black & White sets

I find it a bit suspicious the entire Black & White box sets. Sites say that the first box set is 96 pages long, which is hardly true. The second box set says 768 pages and the other site says 504 pages. Maybe you could try and find credible information about this? Energy X 16:14, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

And while you are at it, maybe you could find which chapters are contained in each of these mini-volumes? As far as I understand, only the BW arc has mini-volumes in English only (the Japanese version only has full volumes). Energy X 16:15, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for the warning, I appreciate it a lot. However, you can just go ahead and remove my rollback rights per the guidelines. Last time I edited was at the beginning of 2020 and the previous time I was actively editing Wikia was October of 2018. Back when I asked for the rights, I mainly asked for them because there weren't many people active on the site, it would've taken a while removing harmful edits and asking admins to do that seemed like a waste of their time. Now the site looks like it's being run more actively by regular contributors, so my reasoning for the rights isn't much good anymore. Besides, if I do come back to Wikia more regularly to edit in the future, rollback rights won't do much good for me. So again, thank you for the warning, and you can remove the rights :) MissingNo.GhostSprite.pngLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 21:55, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Well OK but I still am suspicious about that... it sounds like the length of one mini-volume instead of eight. Energy X 10:14, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

Mega Stones

I can say that Serebii's item descriptions for Gen VI is a bit inaccurate; the description was changed in ORAS, not SM. For example, you can take a look at this video: Manectite was introduced in XY but here, in ORAS, its description includes "One of a variety of mysterious Mega Stones." Dominoes I guess? 15:09, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

I had thought to, maybe, merge the section if their names are the same in both versions of Chinese (for infoboxes, use zh_name, cmn_pinyin yue_jyutping and zh_trans for the above case)? Maybe you could try that. :) Dominoes I guess? 15:16, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
That actually makes me think: if the language table is way too big (like that one in Z-Crystal), we can use the collapsible table function to make the proportion of the page more equal. What do you think about that? Also, you don't need to get mad at me for just a small edit mistake. Dominoes I guess? 15:24, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
I didn't know about that either. Dominoes I guess? 10:49, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Seems like they did this to make their names more accurate or something like that (similar to item renames). I don't know but that feels like some kind of mystery to me. :) Dominoes I guess? 11:58, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

There were definitely a lot of alternate Pokémon names for Cantonese, I can say. For that Pikachu incident, if I recall correctly, it was mentioned by one of my friends and I was also not so satisfied about it (although I still call Pikachu by that old name because Wynaut?). Dominoes I guess? 12:07, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
Never thought that can also be a factor lol. But I do have seen some character names (outside of Pokémon) that were translated alternatively due to political stuffs.

I have some private issues handling out, but I'll try and do that next week. Also, I would point out not to display (not activated) like this.

Well as said, it's already implied. We don't exactly show the reference for gender for such Pokémon, and abilities can be done in the same manner. Energy X 20:51, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Can you repeat the part about the Fandom Desktop? I couldn't really remember (or understand) about that.

As fpr the Commonwealth, better not. It is just that we display languages and countries and group them, which then adds a certain context. Using Commonwealth will leave new users confused (even me) when such a term is used. Energy X 19:41, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

As far as I understand, Commonwealth has a more political/economical context, which applied here would make less sense. That's what I mean. Energy X 19:50, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

Season

Are you referring to the season airdates and names or the episodes'? Dominoes I guess? 10:29, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Sure then, but I think you should also ask some other users. :) At first glance it seems like you were referring to the episodes' names and airdates, hence why I asked the question above. Dominoes I guess? 10:35, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
I do know that Netflix do release episodes in Chinese (which is, in my knowledge, the only method to watch Journeys episodes). I don't know whether they are sorted by season or by series, so... (shrug) Dominoes I guess? 11:09, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
While I don't know about the TV network of Taiwan myself, the Chinese Wikipedia article states that there is indeed a channel that airs the Journeys episodes (and they air the episodes before Netflix). As for the mainland, there seems to be none. :) Dominoes I guess? 11:21, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Also, as you are editing volumes, I did notice the chapter list table on Pokémon Adventures: Volume 1 has the Japanese name column while other pages don't. Either remove it or update the other pages so the tables match that look. Energy X 13:25, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

I'm a little confuse as to what you are asking me to do, are you asking me to revert PJ049 through PJ052 back to the way it was or for something else. Kittystyler talk 7:41, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Edit

You don't have to add the gender references to the other tabs. I've checked and only one time seems to work, as shown here. The only time I could think of this being useful is to show that the Pokémon in its earlier stages was shown to be that gender. Energy X 21:01, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Sprites

Noticed your action on the renaming of item sprites. Are you restarting the rename thing?

By the way, for your user page, I've came across several instances in Discord where people just call me "Dom", so I'm fine with it. :) Dominoes I guess? 11:08, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

That's completely irrelevant to the message above. Anyways, I disagree that all of the artworks should be moved to the appearance section - to me, it's fine to just include the main artworks (including alternate appearances) in the main content and others in the gallery. Dominoes I guess? 11:44, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
Sorry that I misunderstood your message. That should be yes then. :) Dominoes I guess? 11:48, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

That's very interesting; I don't know why it happens either. Dominoes I guess? 15:05, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

For that thing, {{G}} exists (though is unused because it is not maintained, I guess).

Also, thanks for notifying that error. :) Seems like Fandom converts "&" into that bunch of text in the profile for some reason. Dominoes I guess? 11:52, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

I would be against that. Even just by the games itself, there are many games with the same initials (e.g. Red and Ruby, Yellow and Y), which are solved in that template using words outside the initial (e.g. Rb, Ylw), which makes the template quite inconvenient and kind of lose the value of using it (as a template that is frequently used between texts). If you would put in more content to it, it may be much harder to manage and even more inconvenient to use the template. Dominoes I guess? 12:07, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
That actually makes the concept worse. There would be the same parameter choice for different puroses (RS could both mean the games and the anime series), plus remember that the abbrs are links to their respective pages (e.g. "Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Version" and "Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire"). Dominoes I guess? 12:19, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

Merge

Well it's OK to hear that the Mystery Dungeon wiki wants to merge, but we should start comparing their pages to ours.

Also, I would like to remind that Pokémon Abilities are implied as much as gender or type are, and we don't actually remove the latter two. Energy X 10:59, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

Yes, but the gender is applied only to Pokémon with confirmed gender, so you can't find female Tauros, for example. In that perspective, it makes the reference redundant, but for other Pokémon it is valid since they can be both male or female. Kinda like abilities. Energy X 11:18, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

Abilities

Personally, I would have the Ability stated if the Pokémon (or one of its forms) has only one Ability (including the Hidden Ability) but is not shown to use it, since it is guaranteed to have the Ability. Kind of between both of your opinions, I guess? Dominoes I guess? 13:57, 14 May 2021 (UTC)

PE-exclusive sprites

Some have their menu sprites updated once again in SWSH

  • The legendary birds (sprites seemingly completely redone)
  • Melmetal (slight color brightening)

Chapters

It's more of a naming and assinging meanings to words issue. When we say chapter we just mean a number of pages in a volume that is a standalone component, kinda like an episode.

Besides, I think there's also something to see in some of the blurbs from the sites you posted, which actually name them arcs (sample page), just like Serebii site does.

Not to say that they are wrong, but this is our principle. Energy X 20:48, 22 May 2021 (UTC)

Origin of the formula for finding out the value of each stat.

Hello, I'm doing a research paper for mathematics about pokemon, and I was going through the wiki to see the formula used for calculating the specific value of each stat. I'm planning on including this in my work and was wondering who discovered the formula. Was it given by the devs or was it discovered by a player or a group of players (and who if that's the case). I need some accurate references for my work and I was hoping you could help. Thank you!

Edit

That doesn't look good. Besides, you also have to think that this format should be applied to other pages (so that people can know exactly one place where to write references section), which is not suitable for all. Energy X 17:48, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Well remember, not everything can be done the way we wanted. You should try and speak with others before making such changes. Besides, I don't think there was any problem with using the references the way we are currently doing. Energy X 18:41, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Something not too important, I guess

Basically I updated my profile template so that it would not look too similar to ThePokegeek5000's one. For this one I used a bunch of CSS for text shadows and gradients (I think global templates used for profile pages are not restricted by rule 11?). Dominoes I guess? 10:35, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! The "duplicated" profile picture basically works as some sort of filler so the profile won't look way too bland with the currently black background (and also as a nod to some other profile templates I saw, like this). Maybe I'll remove the image after adding some style to the background or something. Dominoes I guess? 10:00, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
Yep, and by your suggestion I think I can replace it with similar images like this. Thanks anyways! Dominoes I guess? 10:07, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

  1. There's no actual rule for one-episode characters. It's just that either they can appear in two episodes or more, or are somewhat notable, or something else.
  2. Just to remind that we have in the EpisodeBox the links to interwiki sites, like ja_link. It's just to search the name of the page on that site (the Japanese Pokémon Wiki) and place it in the infobox.
  3. Not sure what to do with the tag, I don't remember where (or if we) place the users to the tags. I see that she only has Content Mod user rights, and that should display as that tag. Energy X 23:24, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

As for the volume covers, here, we can use tabs to display different images. Since English mini-volumes are split in two based on Japanese volumes, we can store those two, along with Japanese cover images. And earlier volumes had Chuang Yi volumes, so we can use the moment to place them as well. Energy X 23:34, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Castelia City

Sure. :) So you mean you want me to reformat Castelia City's page using Lumiose City's format? Dominoes I guess? 14:25, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

Okay. :) I would like to state that, in case you didn't know, the reason why I merged the Pokémon and items section to the places of interests section in Lumiose City is that the location is too big and it would require tons of scrolling to go to different aspects of the same place (which is an issue that does not present in normal locations). Dominoes I guess? 14:37, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

Stuff

I've removed the user rights from that person.

As for the tag, maybe you could try asking the Staff or Ursuul about that.

Third, we usually display anything that's from original content (Japan) or dub (English), and for consistency should remain at the top of the infobox. But there may be something else that you could use to display in the bottom that is relevant to the volume.

Fourth, I don't think we really need to shorten interwiki links with a template since you already have the short links with the pattern

[[:lang_code:page]]

Finally, I did notice that the link to the New Zealandian web store madman.com.nz is broken, as if the site has been unplugged. Here is a link on our page to that site you might want to check - and fix. Energy X 20:39, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

Appears that FandomDesktop has restricted .css usage like when you view pages in mobile (with the obvious difference being the theme can be changed), which is something I don't really like.

RE: User Tags

This is how they are defined in MediaWiki:ProfileTags, so the tags update to reflect these settings when the script executes. An Admin will have to update this page to reflect the new rights, or simply remove entries for users who already have the rights they want to display.

Looks like Hirose took care of it, should be working as intended now.
UrsuulTalkWRDate5:15 PM Friday, June 4, 2021 (UTC)

In what fashion is it playing up? The half-second before the tags change? That is intended, it is how the ProfileTags script functions. The only thing not intended was for a Content Moderator to be designated as a rollback, which I believe Hirose's edit should have fixed — unless it has not?
UrsuulTalkWRDate5:23 PM Friday, June 4, 2021 (UTC)

The ProfileTags script, by its nature, replaces all existing tags for a user that it has defined tags for, replacing them with the tags defined in MediaWiki:ProfileTags. Since "Council" isn't defined for Energy X, presumably because he just doesn't want to display his Council tag here, it is replaced by the script & not shown.
UrsuulTalkWRDate5:33 PM Friday, June 4, 2021 (UTC)

Proposals

I wanted to create a proposals page, but you have done it already and I'm happy about it. I would suggest you to categorize the proposals into two categories. One that affects the entire wiki/everyone such as theme designing, introduction of new features which would require a person with mere 5 mainspace or 20 discussions posts/replies to vote on. Another that is related to the content area only or improving some mistakes which would require a person with 250 mainspace (i'd suggest you to keep 100 mainspace edits since that's the requirement for voting on user rights) edits to vote. I would also suggest you to add some more rules besides the fair reasoning one. Like, must not use alternate accounts to vote or else the votes will be cancelled by the accounts (used in cheating), must be a part of the community for more than one week, must not have a recent block history. Hirose Yoshiyuki (talk) 02:39, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

Rights and User Tags

King Marth is a rollback, I guess. Only the bureaucrats are able to grant and revoke the rollback, content moderator and administrator rights, not the admins.

I planned on improving the tags once I get my rights back. The reason why the "Council" tag doesn't show up on Energy X's profile is that there can be two tags in maximum. Not that we can increase the number of tags, but more than two wouldn't look good. Hirose Yoshiyuki (talk) 01:49, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

If promoting/demoting rollbacks was in my hands, I'd have done that already haha. Bureaucrats are only able to promote admins, rollbacks, c-mods and bureaucrats while can demote them as well (can't demote a bureaucrat) and can unblock themselves. We admins can only promote and demote d-mods, which is sad. Hirose Yoshiyuki (talk) 12:42, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

The upcoming "semi-active period" of me

Huge stuffs have been occuring in the Surviv.io Wiki (where I am an admin; refer to my profile page for that) since the start of 2021, with a bureaucrat resigning and demoting himself due to a vote by the community. Another vote would be held soon there and I have a chance to take his place as a bureaucrat.

A similar stuff goes to the Surviv.io Chinese Wiki (where I am a bureaucrat). One of the main contributors there (who is an admin) will step down by June 9, so I will need to handle that Chinese wiki singlehandedly to keep it from collapsing.

That means, I may need to split time efficiently between the Pokémon Wiki and the two wikis mentioned above, on top of needing to study for the final exam of my grade. This does mean that I will have decreased activity in the future. However, I will not stop the current projects entirely (e.g. Castelia Coty and the Berries), and I may be more active once the exam is over (and, maybe, when I get a new computer to work with).

Nice. I think I would personally use a modified version of the template to be used on my profile page so it won't look out of place, though. :) Dominoes I guess? 04:26, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Do you have any plans on editing Unova location pages that use tables instead of templates? Dominoes I guess? 15:36, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Just for confirming whether you would do that or not in the near future. :) I asked it since many of the Unova location pages use non-standard tables for wild Pokémon, items, etc. Although I know that there are other priorities like the Sinnoh location pages, so I don't expect anyone to edit the Unova pages immediately (outside of Castelia City, ofc). Dominoes I guess? 15:47, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
Sure. Today I focus on surviv.io stuffs, so maybe a few days later I'll do that. :) Dominoes I guess? 15:17, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

Can't see any problems with the Mints page's romanization at first glance. :) Dominoes I guess? 13:35, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

No I didn't find a source I just screen captured the image and I haven't heard from Kyurem147 on where he gets his images from. I hope screen captured images are acceptable, if not sorry. Kittystyler talk 10:42, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

Things

You made a huge change, which should not have been applied:

  1. The infobox is limited to 4 sections: 2 for row-like space, 1 for table design and 1 for gallery. If there's any change involved, you should definitively first consider trying to incorporate changes into what we have, not introduce new changes to the infobox.
  2. You also replaced header4 parameter with header5, and that is something that is used on a number of infoboxes. It also is not a good change and should be reverted.
  3. Can you remind me why actually trying to use references inside the infobox, aside from "Wikipedia uses it"? Have you also seen how does it look on mobile view? This is definitively something you need to ask a design expert about this, and should not do anything rash without their advice. That's how we got a ton of gallery images on move pages that we had to eventually clean up. Remember, this isn't so much about gaining community approval but to see if it fits in with design.
    • And if it's to me, I don't think it really is good when the section is closed. A person can click on the link but they won't see the notes.

As for mini-volumes, we already have the X&Y mini-volumes and ordinary volumes. While the chapters are basically the same, they still are different products.

As for date, you might want to use this. Energy X 21:38, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

I've spoken to FishTank at Discord (you might want to join the server, too). Anyway, the first response is that the bottom of the page is an expected place to see the references, as in most other pages follow that type of layout.

Furthermore, unlike other rows in the infobox, this isn't a short piece of information, to be putting it in the infobox. And there's the fact that long sentences on a non-white background are harder to read. In addition, when you press on a reference, it should take you consistently down to a visible spot, not up. And the last thing might also be that on official research papers, you got the references at the end of the page and literature at the end of the paper, and it would be unexpected to do otherwise.

With that done, about those mini-volumes, I guess you are right. How about writing a list to what they would be renamed to, so I can update the links, too?
Finally, about date, maybe you could make a sandbox and show what you want to do? Energy X 21:26, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

Splitting which pages, exactly, and to what? Please clarify. Energy X 21:17, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Well the thing is that we kinda already do pages as they are, maybe just rename the mini-volumes. It's just that we already have pages like volume 14 of Adventures manga, which specifically states that one chapter in English is added from vol. 15 (the original Japanese volume had the last chapter in 15). Your suggestion would make it overly complicated to track such things, as we'd need two pages just for the different versions. Same goes for vol. 42 and other similar examples. Basically it's just that mini-volumes are basically split into two parts, which we can mention on the volume pages.
All I'm saying is that I'm against making more pages, which are somewhat difficult to handle and maintain. Energy X 21:33, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Rights

Paul personally told me that he is back to help. I have reinstated his rights. Sorry for not replying sooner. My account was disabled. After getting it enabled again, I've messaged you. Hirose Yoshiyuki (talk) 15:44, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

The rule has been in existence from the very starting. It was never written, but followed. You can write it. Hirose Yoshiyuki (talk) 14:23, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

Volumes

  1. I'm not so sure adding tabbers to display chapters for different languages is a good idea. Might be for the best to make a note in the trivia section than doing that.
  2. Why removing this? Energy X 20:30, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
