Giant Chasm

The Pokémon section will be finished sometime tomorrow at the earliest, if I have time. I think I would not only expand the Pokémon section though. Dominoes 14:34, August 7, 2020 (UTC)

Most of the page (except Description) seems to be done. Dominoes 06:38, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
Okay, will do.
By the way, I want to ask you a question: should we merge the pages about Sweets (e.g. Flower Sweet, Berry Sweet) similar to how Gems, Plates and Mulches are, or just keep them as separate pages? Dominoes 11:45, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
No problem. :) Dominoes 11:47, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! Dominoes 12:25, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
About gems, I kind of agree that we should have a section on locations of them. I'm not very sure how to do it though. Dominoes 12:30, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
All right. Dominoes 12:37, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
After some checking, it seems like that:
  • All gems except Fairy Gem can be found via dust clouds.
  • Normal Gem is the only gem to be obtainable since Gen VI.
  • Fairy Gem is unobtainable.
Thus, maybe the locations of gems can be done by just adding an additional column with rowspan, similar to how Plates are. Dominoes 13:48, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
What is that? Dominoes 13:56, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
Ah okay—never heard of it since I don't really know much about DPPt. I will do so anyways after familiarizing it. Dominoes 14:02, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
The time I got into Pokémon was around 4 years ago, when I got introduced to X and Y. Dominoes 14:06, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
Kind of true. Dominoes 14:16, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
Just searched about the seals. Not to mention about how much time it would require, I think I can. Dominoes 15:40, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
Just done the merging of Sweets anyways. Dominoes 03:25, August 13, 2020 (UTC)
Have you proofread the edit on Giant Chasm? I haven't seen any corrections on that page so I'm not sure. Dominoes 14:16, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
No problem. Dominoes 14:22, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
Saw it, thanks :) Dominoes 14:31, August 8, 2020 (UTC)
No problem. Dominoes 00:01, August 9, 2020 (UTC)

Images

Or buy me the biggest TV screen, hook it up to the computer and print screen the images of over 10,000px in width.

Our images are big enough, I suppose the smallest one should be around 1000px wide. We should give priority to edit articles with lack of content, not with some content. Energy X 12:33, August 8, 2020 (UTC)

New concept.

Hey! After having a discussions with Harsh and some of my fellow Moderators, we have decided to introduce several new ideas to the wiki discussions. We have decided to do something new with the currently hosted contests (@Gary Oakk is doing these now). Now, we have decided to host these contests 4 times a year, and they will be named "Official Wiki Contests". Winners of these contests will receive a special tag (such as "Featured Smeargle" or "Featured Artist" for Art Contests). These tags will have no additional rights or badges and will expire when the next contest is held. Additionally, those who have made a fairly high number of reports, and have substantial activity in the wiki discussions or wiki content area will receive a "Featured Member" tag.

I have introduced these ideas in the belief that these will boost activity to the wiki and hopefully inspire and encourage our users to contribute more to our wiki with these incentives.

I have the support of 3 fellow Mods and I know Micah will like it as well, and so will other community members if I reveal this idea. I am also confident I am able to execute the above ideas with minimal disruption to other Admins and Moderators.

Additionally, I would like to make two pages. The first page is to have the above new ideas for record keeping purposes as well as letting users view the details conveniently. The second page is to have the contest winners' names recorded in a "Hall of Fame" page. I hope these are not too much to ask for. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 15:37, August 8, 2020 (UTC)

Also, the news are pretty old. I'll add them. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 15:12, August 9, 2020 (UTC)

ItemBox

Should we add additional bag image parameters (e.g. "bagimage3", "bagimage4") to account for items with more than 2 sprites (e.g. Rotom Bike, Meteorite, Dowsing Machine)? Dominoes 04:59, August 10, 2020 (UTC)

Okay. Dominoes 07:31, August 14, 2020 (UTC)
I think so, if they don't mind if I am new. Dominoes 07:36, August 14, 2020 (UTC)
Alright. In fact I haven't seen so many active staffs lately. Dominoes 07:41, August 14, 2020 (UTC)
Oh really? This is quite interesting then.
I have planned to stay here for a long time. Thanks for the clairification though. Dominoes 07:49, August 14, 2020 (UTC)

Also, responding to the earlier question of merging Sweets, I have done it yesterday. A few similar pages (Exp. Candy, Mint) are also done. If you have time, can you proofread it and fix if it is not what it should be? Thanks! Dominoes 07:56, August 14, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks! Dominoes 08:14, August 14, 2020 (UTC)
I have seen the forum and signed on what I think should be integrated. Thanks for reminding me about this though. Dominoes 09:26, August 14, 2020 (UTC)
Lol. I won't mind anyways, considering that I only singed a few of them. Dominoes 09:29, August 14, 2020 (UTC)
Never knew how to use that. Thanks for the advice :) Dominoes 11:39, August 14, 2020 (UTC)

No problem, will do this probably a few days later.

Speaking of Mystery Dungeon, could you rename the Gates to Infinity animated trailer characters? Dominoes 15:35, August 14, 2020 (UTC)

Okay. Also thanks for renaming the pages :) Dominoes 00:20, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
Should be done. Dominoes 03:18, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
Also, I feel like that we should separate curry into another page, since the info about curry in the Pokémon Camp page is already much more than info about anything else. Dominoes 04:34, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
So that all the info about curry in Pokémon Camp page is moved to a page called "Curry". Dominoes 07:51, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
Alright. Dominoes 07:56, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

No problem. :)

By the way, I am expanding Cram-o-matic currently. If something about format is wrong, feel free to correct it. Dominoes 08:01, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks! Dominoes 08:04, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
Something about Cram-o-matic — can you:
  • Move Wht Apricorn to White Apricorn? The item was "White Apricorn" since Gen VI, and SWSH IoA is the first to have it available since Gen VI (like other Apricorns). I have already moved other Apricorn pages, but I cannot move White Apricorn for some reason.
  • Delete this file? I uploaded this file before realizing that there already exists a file of the same purpose.
Thanks! Dominoes 09:27, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
It is true that it should have been in the same page in the first place. Dominoes 09:31, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
No problem. The edit will be done after the next edit in Cram-o-matic is done. Dominoes 09:43, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
I think that the "Wht Apricorn" should be kept as a redirect to Apricorn though, considering that it was "Wht Apricorn" from Gen II to Gen V, and we would keep old names as redirects to new names. Dominoes 10:10, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
Same. In fact I am going to make redirects to the Memory page soon. Dominoes 11:15, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
The same will also go to the Seed pages (e.g. Misty Seed), when they are created. The thing is I don't know if the main page should be "Seeds" or not, since Seeds is also the name for the group of MD seeds. Dominoes 11:27, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
Alright. :) Dominoes 11:31, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Have not even thought of merging berries, but yeah. Dominoes 11:39, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

I think so, however it should be put in a different table, otherwise the table would be too compacted to read. Dominoes 11:42, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
Okay. Will do that one. Dominoes 11:52, August 15, 2020 (UTC)
Both Cram-o-matic and Drive pages are done. Dominoes 02:27, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

Should Gold Bottle Cap be included in Bottle Cap as well? They are quite similar things, but there are only two types of Bottle Caps (Bottle Cap and Gold Bottle Cap) and the namespace would be confusing. Dominoes 03:41, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

Alright. Dominoes 07:26, August 16, 2020 (UTC)
Can you move Gold Bottle Caps to Gold Bottle Cap? I accidentally added the S when creating the redirect. Thanks :) Dominoes 07:56, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

Special:Diff/1304584 Special:Diff/1304585

Are you planning to change the parameters of both templates? Dominoes 08:24, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

Just asked so because you changed the parameter. It is currently not corresponding to the parameter "Gen", which changes it to its default color (Gen I, yellow). Dominoes 08:28, August 16, 2020 (UTC)
There is. This is Itemdesctop for example:
{| class="toccolours; style="background:#FFFFFF; border:2px solid #{{#switch:{{{Gen|I}}}|I=FCF75E|II=ADD8E6|III=90EE90|IV=6495ED|V=A9A9A9|VI=DC143C|VII=FFA500|VIII=0EBFE9}}; text-align:center; width:50%"
|-
| style="width:10%; color:#000000; background:#{{#switch:{{{Gen|I}}}|I=FCF75E|II=ADD8E6|III=90EE90|IV=6495ED|V=A9A9A9|VI=DC143C|VII=FFA500|VIII=0EBFE9}}" | '''Games'''
| style="width:40%; color:#000000; background:#{{#switch:{{{Gen|I}}}|I=FCF75E|II=ADD8E6|III=90EE90|IV=6495ED|V=A9A9A9|VI=DC143C|VII=FFA500|VIII=0EBFE9}}" | '''Description'''
Notice the "{{{Gen|I}}}". The table would change color based on what is filled on "Gen". If nothing is filled, it would default to "I", causing the table to be yellow. Dominoes 08:36, August 16, 2020 (UTC)
No problem then. Dominoes 08:40, August 16, 2020 (UTC)
Thanks :) I wanted to ask if you would do the same for Itemdesctop. Dominoes 10:55, August 17, 2020 (UTC)

If you are talking about this, then I don't know. Energy X has opened it, I think he will close it once the 14 days have passed. If you are talking about this, then yes, I have been thinking the same. The forum has been opened for too long, I'll close it now and add the information. In addition, I'm going to add some extra words to some important pages.

Hey, Ellis. I'm not very happy with the new UCP software. A lot of features will be gone for now. They will be added later, I guess. I don't know if these proposed features will work in the new platform. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 13:15, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

They may add them back later, but for now; the community page is removed, the recent changes page is completely changed, the visual and classic editor modes are completely changed (updated), these dev.fandom.com's features may not work in the new platform. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 13:20, August 16, 2020 (UTC)
The same way of customization of the recent changes page will take place in the new wiki as it is done in the old wiki, but the box you see and those annoying instructions, they will remain the same. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 16:06, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

The pages are really small to he honest. I think they can be merged with the main starter Pokémon page. Dominoes 13:21, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

You can turn those pages into redirects to that page's sections. Same can go for Legendary Pokémon group pages. Energy X 15:22, August 16, 2020 (UTC)
That's what I am going to do. Dominoes 15:26, August 16, 2020 (UTC)
As for the section, it actually makes sense. The question is how are you going to design it, by using the existing template, using galleries or something else? Energy X 15:29, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

Well I modified it to be under trivia section. Also we shouldn't use so many templates, just see what happens if people use Visual Editor. Now, the only thing I can think of is that it needs to be centered, but that only requires the template to be edited, nothing less. Energy X 15:39, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

Better now? Remember, we shouldn't overcomplicate things by using multiple columns, at least not by applying them like that in articles. Energy X 18:52, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

But you forget one thing, that mobile viewers can't read tooltips. It should be avoided when you can use alternative solutions like that one. Energy X 08:18, August 18, 2020 (UTC)

Itemdesc, Itemloc and Movedesc

For these tables, I think that we should include borders if we use <hr />. If there are no borders while we are using <hr />, it would make the table somewhat hard to read. Dominoes 08:58, August 18, 2020 (UTC)

Also, one thing to note is that not all template tables are suitable for article-table. For example, WildPoke looks awful. Dominoes 12:42, August 18, 2020 (UTC)
Referring to above, I think that article-table should be used on general tables (like those on Cram-o-matic), while such template tables should not use article-table as they are heavily coded and would not go well with article-table. Dominoes 12:56, August 18, 2020 (UTC)
Alright. Dominoes 13:07, August 18, 2020 (UTC)
"The reason why I inserted it is because it made the temps. more spacious, internally."
In terms of making it wider, I think just making the width like 75% instead of 50% would solve it, without having other unrelated side-effects. Dominoes 13:55, August 18, 2020 (UTC)
Interesting. If it is so, I think I would rather not have the borders at all or ask someone else. Dominoes 14:21, August 18, 2020 (UTC)

Class

That class is reserved for tables that display data (like episode lists). Do remember that when updating templates. Energy X 13:20, August 18, 2020 (UTC)

Parameters

Perhaps, but this is too advanced for me. You could try and contact someone else for that. Energy X 13:31, August 18, 2020 (UTC)

Volumes

Do you have the volumes asked about in here, so you could take photos and share the content? Remember, I am just asking for pictures, nothing else; if it looks too big or something, I can easily crop it. Energy X 16:33, August 18, 2020 (UTC)

  1. This has to be from the volume version. The extra content is added to the volume. The scanlators just take magazine or online versions, which are way much before the volume versions.
  2. People like that come and go. It's a new scanlation team that translates the chapters. But it still would not work because of point 1.
  3. And most importantly, the images don't have to be exactly scanned. You can just take a photo, that is not blurry, and upload it. Energy X 20:08, August 18, 2020 (UTC)
Well as I said to that guy, just list the things, then we can see what we can use. Things like table of contents are not something that we need, for example. Energy X 22:37, August 18, 2020 (UTC)
OK, fair enough. We could find someone else for BW / B2W2 arc, I think. Energy X 08:31, August 19, 2020 (UTC)

Reply

  1. For ETP, I did ask him a long time ago and he said something that he needed to be interested in (something along those lines). Well, I can't exactly force people to do something, just to ask them.
  2. Technically there are very few people that maintain the manga pages. And so it is kinda better not to have them, since, unlike anime, the manga updates are very rare. Besides, at the point of creating hundreds of pages, I didn't exactly want or need the burden of creating that many redirects. At any point, that is not something that we should be concerned with. Energy X 11:53, August 20, 2020 (UTC)
Well if it is your wish, even a script would help. But you do know that such redirects are not used anywhere? That's why I think it is pointless, and any pages that are moved have their links updated quickly enough. Energy X 12:00, August 20, 2020 (UTC)

Notice

Just to tell this to you: after this wiki's migration to UCP is complete, I will have much reduced activity, due to the UCP's editor loading very slow and hard to use, as well as the recent changes are inaccessible at all (takes forever to load). Dominoes 13:44, August 20, 2020 (UTC)

I'm sure by then such issues will be solved. That is a great undertaking that Fandom doesn't take lightly. Besides, it will take some time for big sites like these to be transferred to that platform. Energy X 13:46, August 20, 2020 (UTC)
All right. Dominoes 13:58, August 20, 2020 (UTC)

You can always contact him on his talk page, anyway.

As for the episode template, you can't have row 30+ because the base template - Infobox - only works with 20 rows and four headers. And before you say anything, no, we can't change the template; we should keep the template short so you can have the basic information put in 20 rows, plus the additional ones, like gallery.

Re: Hi there

Hi! It's been a long time, hope you're doing fine. I'd be happy to help you out, as long as it's not too complicated - what sort of changes? noreplyz talk 08:19, August 21, 2020 (UTC)

Hmm - the task has a pretty large effort required compared to the benefit it has, especially as it's hidden away from viewers. Unfortunately I don't think I can write this with the time I have. noreplyz talk 09:20, August 21, 2020 (UTC)
A reminder in a month would be perfect - just been busy upgrading scripts for UCP, since many wikis will be moving to the new platform in the coming weeks. noreplyz talk 11:54, August 21, 2020 (UTC)
I don't know when this site will be moved, but the CSS changes are pretty decently documented here as they are discovered: w:c:ucp:UCP CSS changes. For other concerns, it'd be good to contact your wiki's WM, they will be able to answer further questions and might also be able to help your team get prepared for migration. noreplyz talk 12:05, August 21, 2020 (UTC)

Volumes

Can you give me a date that you are willing to upload the volume's images that I mentioned earlier? Also, which volumes do you have? Energy X 09:01, August 21, 2020 (UTC)

Would you mind uploading whatever you have taken the picture of anyway? I still want to see what the deal is. Energy X 11:36, August 21, 2020 (UTC)
I'm still actively checking the wiki, it's just a matter between me studying Japanese and kanji stroke orders and preparing massive amounts of images to upload to the wiki. Also, I've been a bit lazy with my torrent client being uncooperative with me (although I can easily fix it). PokémonGamer* 00:44, August 22, 2020 (UTC)

Curious - Why were these reversion done?

The entire purpose was to fix the spacing issues on the "5*" text (see Axew's Eye as of when I checked - screenshot https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/606813603433283615/746530624822837248/unknown.png ) at the request of User:Dominoes via discord (my discord is ThePokegeek5000#2428) - screenshot https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/606813603433283615/746532206679162940/unknown.png

And while doing so I noticed that it was given the "Infobox Templates" category despite not being an infobox, both in use (they generate a table not the infobox) and in the categorization (template type is set to "Data" not "Infobox") so I fixed that category too.

Additionally, I don't know if I'll actually see a reply to this as I have FANDOM Emails disabled, so if you could get dominoes to send me a note that it's been replied to on discord, or just simply notify me on a wiki with message walls like w:c:community:Message Wall:ThePokegeek5000 or w:c:survivio:Message Wall:ThePokegeek5000 (RIP New Message Walls), that would be appreciated.

I didn't realise you and Dom talked. If you are going to alter the temps. in such a way, could you do it for the other temps. that are similar and recategorise those to the data category? Ellis99 Volcanion 07:22, August 22, 2020 (UTC)
If you need any help, just ask, although it's simply editing a single word. If you have a list that you would like me to go through, tell me. Otherwise, I'll just be Slaking and and not bother :P -ThePokegeek5000 02:42, August 26, 2020 (UTC)

"Interactive"

About those Pokémon in Galar, they are no different than overworld encounters that are fixed to spawn in a place. I think that it would be a bit inaccurate to just describe them are "interactive", because otherwise any overworld Pokémon would be. Dominoes 13:25, August 22, 2020 (UTC)

Still waiting for images. At least you could take the most recent ones from B2W2 arc. Energy X 13:05, August 24, 2020 (UTC)

Task

Would you be willing enough to give Dominoes some help in transferring the content from Gamepedia to here? Energy X 14:32, August 27, 2020 (UTC)

Good. There's tons of locations, move and Pokémon pages to see. Not an easy task, but as said, you could check the history page and see if there were any edits made after July 2012, when the split happened. Energy X 08:07, August 28, 2020 (UTC)
As for the copies, do remember that they haven't changed much. Something, but not much, so there are bound to be articles that are very much like ours. Energy X 08:26, August 28, 2020 (UTC)
I've seen your edits. Just remember to stylize it; like we don't need excess links, for example. Energy X 09:47, August 28, 2020 (UTC)

Page reviews

Made a post. So we don't double our work by having two or more people review the same page(s). Energy X 17:25, August 28, 2020 (UTC)

See, that's exactly what I meant by redundancy. I already did the characters up to Generation V, including Johto Gym Leaders and Elite Four. Energy X 20:30, August 28, 2020 (UTC)
It's not something to apologize but to simply take attention. At very least you could do a different set of articles to review, like character's Pokémon pages. Energy X 21:43, August 28, 2020 (UTC)

SMD Dungeons

Revised the previous MD Dungeon navboxes as well as made a navbox for Super Mystery Dungeon locations, since I am about to make articles on SMD dungeons. Dominoes 09:59, September 4, 2020 (UTC)

I think I would rewrite other PMD articles as well, since most of them are kind of low quality. In fact this can be an opportunity to use Shockstorm's unused images as well (lol). Dominoes 10:23, September 4, 2020 (UTC)
About this navbox, I think it is obsolete and can be easily substituted by the 4 existing PMD navboxes. Although a navbox about the adventure squads games should be created before deleting it, since we don't have one yet. Dominoes 08:31, September 5, 2020 (UTC)

I'm sorry for the late response, Ellis. I've all the messages ready now, I just have to make a logo for the wiki. For that, I'm downloading a software. It will take two to three more days. I can say I'll announce the proposal before Wednesday 09. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 10:13, September 5, 2020 (UTC)

Personal information

You can't go on and share people's personal information like that. I've recently had a case on another site where a person has shared a link about a city to Wikipedia to indicate where another person lived. While the person was banned for a different reason, I have been informed that placing someone else's personal information is something you could get blocked for.

Besides, what's the point of having country or birthdate on the list of sysops? Energy X 10:18, September 5, 2020 (UTC)

And that's the exact word to describe this: doxxing. I don't think there is a rule around here that says "if I place my own info on my user page, it will be used on another page or site". Energy X 10:20, September 5, 2020 (UTC)
Of course, this is new to me as well. But now that we know, it's better to inform than to pay the price later. Energy X 10:31, September 5, 2020 (UTC)
Apparently not. After all, people want control over the information they put. Energy X 10:36, September 5, 2020 (UTC)
Why is it ever such? Just today I've read how one company took customer data from an other one and a lawsuit is being filed. At any rate, it's best to ask users than to face consequences. Energy X 11:16, September 5, 2020 (UTC)

Categories

We have new parameters in the infobox that substitute it. I've seen that many categories have few pages, if we base them by the staff that worked on the episodes. Energy X 13:25, September 5, 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, but as said, this is an extremely fragmented category, where only a handful pages that are loosely linked by one another by the staff member that worked on it. Energy X 13:32, September 5, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Question

I don't think I'll be continuing it. It's been a long time since I've editied the page so I guess I could remove the reminder that I'm constructing it. Thank you for the reminder. IMG 6982.png 15:21, September 5, 2020 (UTC)

Template

  1. Block 21 parameter does not even exist in the infobox template. You should look up the template to see how it is defined. Just like end(tab)11 or 12 do not exist.
  2. I can see you are trying to add the link. But first, what other title cards exist? I thought it was just Japanese (original) and English (dub) designs, which are already defined as images. Energy X 21:15, September 5, 2020 (UTC)

This page.

While searching for our community's community page, I found out this page. I think it needs to be updated, Ellis. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 13:24, September 6, 2020 (UTC)

Chapter

But I thought I corrected it, Eevee is before the Kangaskhan chapter. Energy X 09:29, September 11, 2020 (UTC)

Since you have mentioned the PJ001 page, I have seen that there are still two galleries there. You do remember well that we should have one gallery to avoid excess buttons. At very least you could talk to a design expert to review this. Energy X 10:05, September 11, 2020 (UTC)

TM and HM

Category:TM and HM sprites

The sprites are quite uniform: one for the Gen 3-5 sprites ([type] TM Sprite.png), and one for the Gen 6+ sprites ([type] TM Gen VI Sprite.png). Although the sprites that directly mention the TM should be deleted, and where they are included should be replaced with the generic ones. Dominoes 07:48, September 12, 2020 (UTC)

They have a slight difference, as seen here. The Gen VI one is slightly thinner. Dominoes 07:58, September 12, 2020 (UTC)
I do not disaggree, although that would be hell of a big project. Dominoes 08:02, September 12, 2020 (UTC)

I forgot to talk about the TR sprites, which are also uniform by themselves (although they come in the format "TR [type] Sprite.png", which is, interestingly, the format that Bulb use. But it's fine to me anyways). Dominoes 06:26, September 13, 2020 (UTC)

RE: BW eps.

As I posted on my profile a month ago, college started for me so trying to find time and motivation between studying is kind of hard. Once the work dies down I can be consistently active but rn it's exams week and soon there'll be more workload /o\ --Serecola (talk) 17:29, September 12, 2020 (UTC)

Mini-volumes

  1. OK. Though do mind to leave the structure behind, so I can fill in the information, instead of rummaging through the code on other pages.
  2. You can simply use Trivia section for that, to point the differences out, but only on the full volumes (since the mini volumes, because they were released before the full volumes, are the original ones). Energy X 19:31, September 12, 2020 (UTC)

Just want to tell you about this before you do

As long as I am fine with other item pages, I don't agree with changing List of Items' wikitable to article-table. Wikitable works just fine there to make it compact while easy on the eyes, while article-table would make such large tables hard to view and slightly expand the table (in a bad way). Dominoes 03:20, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

Good. :) Dominoes 07:37, September 18, 2020 (UTC)
I did a preview of it before sending this message to you as well: how it would expand is vertically. I just think it won't work well with this smaller text.
Also, are you active on Fridays and Saturdays while on hiatus from Sundays to Thursdays? Dominoes 07:57, September 18, 2020 (UTC)
Just asking so that I will avoid asking you during those hiatus days. Dominoes 08:02, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

About the class, we normally use article-table, but it is more to look pretty. Wikitable should be avoided, unless really necessary, like displaying tabular content like that list. Energy X 07:58, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for clarifying that. Dominoes 08:02, September 18, 2020 (UTC)
I did not include Candies and Dynamax Crystals because there are just too many of them (there are 18 stat-targeting Candies and a Candy for each evolution line; and 300 Dynamax Crystal variants), which would definitely damage the list if I include them. Mints have far less (21, similar to Plates and Z-Crystals) so I included them anyways. Dominoes 12:36, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

Adventures

There's some comfort in knowing that. I anticipate the moment when you upload the images. Energy X 08:01, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

Date

Is this the correct airdate of that episode? Energy X 08:21, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

OK, can you also explain the change of format? Surely the "September 21, 2020" is more descriptive and easier to read than "21-Sep-2020". Energy X 08:30, September 18, 2020 (UTC)
Well is there some sort of writing rule that permits that, or is this just on this site? Just saying that we should focus on being professional, and have a very good argument why things like these are kept like that on our site. In fact, we should also ask ourselves why isn't this done on the episode lists. Energy X 08:44, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

Considering how little the pages get attention, this is the best we can find, I think, unless you can find a way to scan them. Are there other characters like that to have the overview? Are there maps that we have on the site? Any other content you can list (aside from the list of Pokémon teams)? Sorry if I sound demanding, but this is some sort of a breakthrough. Energy X 10:24, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

Very well. If you have the motivation and time, it would be good to do the same for BW arc, too. Energy X 10:30, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

PokéPower

You can, but I'm not sure if it will have any purpose, just like it didn't have before. Anyway, before doing anything, at least make a sandbox first, to see how it will look. Energy X 10:54, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

"Could you upload more sprites from Sword and Shield?"

In case you are talking about the item sprites, I think I have already uploaded all the Gen VIII item sprites (except that question mark sprite) that Lego has not uploaded. Dominoes 11:24, September 19, 2020 (UTC)

Ok then. Somehow "sprite" let me think of item bag sprites first lol. Dominoes 11:31, September 19, 2020 (UTC)

Sprites (Pokémon Sword & Shield)

I'm not really sure if I can upload more Sprites of Pokémon Sword and Shield but I think its best to give someone else the task.

Lego Master BB, 7:28 A.M September 19, 2020

Well, it pretty hard to upload sprites from Pokémon games, but I know some other editors on this can do it a lot better since they got more experience with these types of edits than me.

Ok I'll try to see if I can do for you. I'll get on that right away.

Your welcome, happy to help! Lego Master BB, 8:08 A.M September 19, 2020

Page

I'm not so sure that you are using the right source to make mini volumes for BW arc. I'm saying this because, from experience, mini volumes are six chapters long in Japanese version, but are split into double the volumes with three chapters in other countries that translate from Japanese. Thus, I'm fairly certain that volume 1 in Japanese is consisted of volume 1 and 2 in English, while 2 in Japanese is from 3 and 4 of English mini volume. Energy X 21:49, September 20, 2020 (UTC)

In fact, what you are referring to 12 volumes of X&Y arc are just 6 mini-volumes in Japanese version. Energy X 07:58, September 21, 2020 (UTC)

MD Characters in the anime specials

Should the Mystery Dungeon characters that already have anime sections (Grovyle (Mystery Dungeon), Dusknoir (Mystery Dungeon), Sunflora (Mystery Dungeon) have separate pages for anime variants, similar to how they have separate pages for manga variants? Dominoes 10:16, September 24, 2020 (UTC)

All right. :)
I'm trying to do as much quality contributions as possible and end my long-term "projects" (i.e. anime locations infobox fix, TM pages), since the migratoon to UCP is about to come. Dominoes 09:39, September 25, 2020 (UTC)
Seems like they had made UCP less dodgy than before, which is something I appreciated. Still, I don't know if I will stop doing large-scale edits after the migration, so I want to do everything before it's too late (including the long projects, I don't really want to leave them unfinished).
Also, this is a page I have just worked on, feel free to change them if they're wrong :) Dominoes 09:48, September 25, 2020 (UTC)
Sure. Dominoes 09:59, September 25, 2020 (UTC)

I tested the SW & SH thing because there are many things that could differ between versions, it ended up well. I plan to do this to other version templates sometime, specifically BWB2W2, SMUSUM (although this template exists somehow) and PE (because this).

I also plan to separate the Battle Tower pages, mostly due to the new Battle Tower differing so much from the previous Battle Towers. But I will be extremely tired for doing all these things before UCP migration. Dominoes 11:23, September 25, 2020 (UTC)

That is surely some exhausting tasks. Dominoes 11:30, September 25, 2020 (UTC)

In case you have not sene it, the Veilstone Game Corner thing has been done (that Bulbapedia shop table is interesting). Had to make another Shop table part for game corners. Dominoes 15:16, September 25, 2020 (UTC)

Shop

There was an announcement on the commmunity central, I believe. As for the disambig pages, here, this could work. Energy X 09:55, September 25, 2020 (UTC)

But remember, we don't need the sections if the character has only one anime, adventures and/or games counterpart. Energy X 09:57, September 25, 2020 (UTC)
Our definition of mini-volumes in English are the three-chapter-long volumes. Their mini-volumes are actually volumes with 6+ chapters, which are published before they can be collected into regular volumes. This is because the volumes are being currently collected into X & Y arc to be numbered correctly (volume 56), which can't be done before the earlier arcs are finished. Energy X 11:02, September 25, 2020 (UTC)
Now that's a very interesting idea, but not sure if we should do this. At best, I can simply redirect you to Special:Videos to click "Add a video" button. Energy X 11:05, September 25, 2020 (UTC)

Template Designing.

I was thinking if we could customize our recent changes page's box (which we are able to). Look at this page for example. Their customized box looks pretty cool and helpful. Can you or anyone in your contact (if able to) design something like this (i'm very bad at template designings). Alan Sycamore! (talk) 11:42, September 26, 2020 (UTC)

A Query 

Hi Ellis! How are you? I was thinking of providing edits to the Pokemon Master pages, like these, and what I found was that the current state of information is very less and incomplete and providing the information about the trainer's pokemon is the most important as that's what people visit the page for. I thought of editing the current Pokemon Infobox but it is just not right. The template isn't designed correctly and the words are just scattered everywhere. So, I thought I could put an infobox instead of that template. I did create an infobox but I don't know how to align it left. Is it okay if it stays right (it looks bad, though), or is there a way to align it left? If I get a good solution, I will be able to provide some neat info on all of the Masters' Pages. Thank you. :) Lance Faulkner (Contact ) MGarchomp.png 08:26, September 27, 2020 (UTC)

Edit: I actually tried using Table to show the pokemon info and it came out really good in my opinion. If you confirm that it's good, I will continue using the tables. Please confirm. Thank you. :) Lance Faulkner (Contact ) MGarchomp.png 10:41, September 27, 2020 (UTC)

About the mini volumes, here, we should show which chapters belong in which volume. Energy X 17:53, September 27, 2020 (UTC)

Two things

Leave these here in case I would forget.

  • Should I make a page like "List of Unobtainable Items"? There is not any place (not even a category) where unobtainable items are grouped together.
  • Can you rename these two files (Bulbasuar SMD Portrait.png, Flynium Z Sprite.png) to their proper names? (Somehow I would get careless on naming files in Special:MultipleUpload.)

I intended to leave it as a hidden table, just to have the text placed like that (the "vertical-align:up" is some "unvalid" code that I forgot to remove after experimenting with it). Changing it to a shown table also looks good, however — no need to undo it. Dominoes 09:09, October 2, 2020 (UTC)
Exactly why I think it is no need to change it back. Dominoes 09:21, October 2, 2020 (UTC)

That hurts. It has slightly improved since the start of the migration, at least. Dominoes 07:50, October 3, 2020 (UTC)
One improvement I like is that they added back the 2010 editor, so that we are no longer stuck with the 2017 one. It's kind of a downgrade to that one the legacy Fandom is using though, considering the wider but shorter editor section. Dominoes 07:57, October 3, 2020 (UTC)

I'll look for that one, thanks. :) Dominoes 08:12, October 3, 2020 (UTC)
Just to say that the border thing does not work well with every tables. It is not so good to add that to the item template tables and such. Dominoes 08:49, October 3, 2020 (UTC)
That's true, however it also appears too thick on those tables (and, in addition, has a shadow that contrasts with the light-colored line). We should have figured out how to make it appear better before doing so. Dominoes 08:54, October 3, 2020 (UTC)
I should come with a way to either shortening the descriptions or make a line running between each items. Dominoes 08:59, October 3, 2020 (UTC)

Can you give me an example? It's hard to visualize that with mere words. Energy X 13:00, October 4, 2020 (UTC)

I can now read the rest of the joyo kanji I didn't know and write at least the more common ones. I'm currently working on common hyogai kanji that don't appear in the joyo kanji list and learning common proverbs and yojijukugo (I know the most common ones that Japanese in elementary school are expected to know).

About Pokémon Camp (Pokémon Sword and Shield)

Shouldn't we delete the page "Pokémon Camp" (which is a redirect to Camp Pokémon) and have the SWSH camp page using this namespace instead? Dominoes I guess? 07:15, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

The new platform is indeed a bit strange to me, mostly due to the increased text size (maybe to me only). At least the editor (which I worried about the most) is fine though. Dominoes I guess? 11:53, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
By the way, I'm working on creating TR pages now. Dominoes I guess? 11:57, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
RecentChanges is of course an unwelcomed change to users who use WikiActivity all the time. I have used it before though, so it's not much of an extremely big issue to me. Everything should feel right when you get used to it :) Dominoes I guess? 12:00, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Weird... that did not happen to me. Dominoes I guess? 12:04, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
That hurts. If it is not much of a big issue, however, I think we can just not look for bones in an egg.
Anyway, can you delete TRtop and TRmid? I was making table templates before starting to create TR pages, but X came in and told me to make them into one template instead. Dominoes I guess? 12:13, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Sure. :) Dominoes I guess? 12:14, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! :) Dominoes I guess? 12:20, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
I checked if there is anything good being added before reverting, and the only thing that was productive is a "-type" addition. Dominoes I guess? 12:23, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Considering that they did edit the page, there should be more that was added, but those all resulted in an error for the editor and thus made everything wrong without intention. Dominoes I guess? 12:27, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Sometimes the editor may do something for themselves which result in unwanted changes or "vandalisms". Remember when we keep adding the line break and whitespaces for the infobox temp after someone "changed" it? Dominoes I guess? 12:35, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
That is pretty interesting to me. Dominoes I guess? 12:41, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Oh, that thing happens to another wiki I manage as well. It should just be a bug of UCP. Dominoes I guess? 12:51, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
This one, hence my profile picture. It's noticeably smaller due to the game having much less features, but is adequate enough. I also have other wikis that I moderate as listed on my user page (a.k.a. my global user page template); that wiki is the best one before here. Dominoes I guess? 13:02, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Okay then. Dominoes I guess? 13:08, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Template

That looks ugly, and it could use a border. However, I think padding it out would do it good as well, so there's space between the columns. Energy X 11:51, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Moveset

I planned to correct the moveset temps per DragonSpore's request. They will be corrected one by one soon. :) Dominoes I guess? 13:19, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

About Wild Area

I do think Serebii is a good source to get info from, however it can also be inaccurate. For example, for the Wild Area locations, there are hidden items that can spawn as different items, but Serebii just shows one of the possible choices. The same also happens for Feathers that spawn on bridges. Dominoes I guess? 23:46, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Also, when editing Ability pages, capitalize "ability" and "hidden ability". They are officially capitalized, just like "Trainer", another thing that I am currently working on. Thanks :) Dominoes I guess? 00:10, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks :) Dominoes I guess? 11:14, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
I would not consider doing so yet, since the bot would correct every instance of the word, thus screwing up some parts (e.g. "ability" when it does not mean the Ability system). Would do so if I figure out a way of solving it though. Dominoes I guess? 11:17, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, it doesn't show up since it is not a feature anymore. Dominoes I guess? 11:19, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
I don't know, maybe due to the MediaWiki update. Dominoes I guess? 11:26, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
True.
By the way, speaking of editor, you can actually use the 2010 editor instead of the 2017 one via preferences, in case you would be tired of the loading screen. Dominoes I guess? 11:34, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
Basically, yes. It's just a source-only editor that no one here except me are using. Dominoes I guess? 11:38, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
The reason why I put dens at the bottom of the page is because it is basically "Pokémon + Items". It would ruin a page's format if it is put higher, since the item rewards would then come earlier than the items section; but the Pokémon and item rewards section should not be split either. Additionally, the den sections can be extremely long, since there are locations that contain a lot of dens (e.g. Rolling Fields). It hurts to keep scrolling just to see the remaining page. Dominoes I guess? 23:02, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
Speaking about Honeycalm Island, it actually has 6 dens. I only mentioned the drops once because they all share the same drop. Dominoes I guess? 08:01, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Movebox

Templates like that use JavaScript. And it will be fixed when JavaScript gets fixed. Energy X 21:38, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Cosplay Pikachu

Could you upload the artwork of Cosplay Pikachu from the press website? I found the artwork, but they are all .jpg and thus come with white backgrounds which I don't really know how to solve. Thanks! Dominoes I guess? 05:27, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Thanks. :)
I am trying to work from the easiest Wild Area (and Isle of Armor) pages to the hardest. The amount of dens strongly determines how "hard" I think it would be, so the current ones I'm working on are quite simple and have relatively fewer dens. Dominoes I guess? 08:47, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
I do not really want to reveal the journey yet... Lol. Dominoes I guess? 09:47, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
Ok then. :) Dominoes I guess? 09:51, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
I considered to do that - thanks for reminding me. Dominoes I guess? 10:07, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
About item locations, what I always do is to use as few words as possible when listing (e.g. avoiding using connectives like "and"), to have it using at least space as possible. Dominoes I guess? 12:41, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Tabbers

Can you explain the part about tabbers? Energy X 12:49, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

It kinda feels like a lot was ruined by this migration. I do welcome all new extensions, but it has to be done properly. This isn't. Energy X 13:22, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
Well I did notice that on dev.fandom.com there is a script to reinstitute WikiActivity, it's just not ready yet (it is in unstable phase). At best, you can add it in your own JavaScript code (on User:Ellis99/common.js), but I am certain there's a few glitches that you could run into. Energy X 13:58, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

FYI, "the suggested links when typing a link" was bugged so we couldn't add it in immediately, but it should be releasing this week. :) SlyCooperFan1 (talk) 18:54, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Reply.

I saw your support; thank you very much! I wouldn't suggest a thing that would be less liked by someone. Message Walls are a great feature the FANDOM has added. And yes, i will definitely talk with them and also a few users from our wiki may come forward to help. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 14:10, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Why not? But i would still ask you to share it on the forum so that everyone can see and put their points on it. I don't think my personal approval is going to work in it. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 14:28, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

B2W2

Thanks. :) I would try to do something to the USUM template as well to make it stand out from the SM one. Dominoes I guess? 11:21, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

That was what I was thinking of, since we can't get anything from the logo. Dominoes I guess? 11:24, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
I actually still check the wiki. PokémonGamer* 21:21, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Just a quick thought

Is it just me, or are the quotes section in episode pages childish and unnecessary? Dominoes I guess? 05:53, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Held item

Should we make a template that shows held items of wild Pokémon (and the probability of it)? This can be an important supplement to the special Pokémon template's held items section like this example. Dominoes I guess? 13:45, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

I don't think that could be in the WildPoke temps - in fact I think they would go to the game info section of Pokémon pages. Sorry for leading to this misunderstanding :) Dominoes I guess? 08:21, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
I think that this would make the table a bit too complicated. Dominoes I guess? 08:27, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
Oops, sorry that I skipped parts of what I meant to say. I meant that, if we would have held items section, we could already have allies section (for SMUSUM games) and the Pokémon's Abilities. Plus, the held item info is already too non-essential to be added to the table. Dominoes I guess? 08:39, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
Lol, actually I think we could have made a separate template for table with allies section, and we should not add unnecessary parts like Abilities and held items - just keep it as simple as possible.
As for sprites, I'm actually waiting for the menu sprites for returning Pokémon. I'm just searching for any new items and make pages and upload their sprites here. Dominoes I guess? 08:46, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
I remember that someone added a script in MediaWiki:ImportJS, maybe that's why. :) Dominoes I guess? 08:52, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
Some images tend to be more blurry when copied somehow. Dominoes I guess? 09:03, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, it is quite weird why this is possible. If Myouzke is still active this would have been solved. Dominoes I guess? 09:09, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
I agree that it is good to bring it back, however it should be a preference (can be enabled in the gadgets section of preferences) rather than a feature forced to be seen. Dominoes I guess? 09:20, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
That is exactly what I was thinking of. :) Dominoes I guess? 09:24, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, it just fuses Calyrex with Glastrier/Spectrier. Dominoes I guess? 09:26, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

I honestly think that there is only an extremely low chance that X and Y would get sequels or third version, given that X and Y have released several years before. However, I think they have a slight possibility to get remakes if Sinnoh would have. Dominoes I guess? 09:34, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
I honestly don't think so. Armorite and Dynite Ores have more different properties/uses that make them not good to be merged to one page, plus there is only two of them. Dominoes I guess? 09:37, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, by that time it is very reasonable for "Pokémon Z" to come. Dominoes I guess? 09:39, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
Ah okay then. :) Dominoes I guess? 09:45, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
As with other Crown Tundra pages, I'll finish them eventually. Like how I do the IoA pages, their complexity strongly depends the order I'll do them (Warm-Up Tunnel & Tunnel to the Top are the best because they got no dens!).
After I create Max Lair, the only important stuff that would be in the page is the Dynite Ore shop. I would have the Dynamax Adventure stuff placed in the Dynamax Adv. page. Dominoes I guess? 14:23, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
I think this can be a way to keep the wiki up-to-date, actually. Maybe this can be put to Special:Community by the admins. Dominoes I guess? 14:56, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Well, same. I think we should just wait until when it is fully done. Dominoes I guess? 23:01, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

JavaScript

I think the JavaScript issue (at least the site-local) has been fixed, can you verify it on page like this? For me, the background on movebox template is loaded only after the entire page is loaded. If it doesn't work, try reloading the page with CTRL + F5. Energy X 14:23, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Actually, I found some glitches in JavaScript code and fixed them. We should be able to work with JavaScript from now on, and any errors that occur are on our part. Energy X 23:39, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
Also, it might be in your interest to add this to your css. Probably best to tell this to other editors, too. Energy X 20:44, 22 October 2020 (UTC)
It's kinda strange: I use two computers with Firefox browsers, and one displays the background and the other doesn't. I really don't know why would that be. As for Recent Changes, I can do just that. Energy X 08:53, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
And yet, on the same computer that this does not work, it works if I use Microsoft Edge. I can only imagine that it might have to do with clearing the browser history. Energy X 09:08, 23

Beginning the DP Beta

Since you notified me about the Diamond & Pearl Beta last month and I have since got other events out of the way, I would like to begin working on it. If you have any links to resources I could use then that would be very helpful. I have already found an article detailing some of the aspects on The Cutting Room Floor, but if you have anything else on the matter (since you were the one that brought it up), then it will be greatly appreciated.

Also, I really hate this new editor and I'm trying to get used to it so sorry if the page takes some time to get put up. Honestly wish there was a way to switch between the older and newer editor.

Thank you and have a nice day. IMG 6982.png 17:53, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

I think I did the trick by adding that RecentChangesModern script on common.css. It should work for everyone now.

As for the other thing, it does sound nice. But do consider this: around 10 years ago, when I arrived here, I started doing anime pages and others - like you - joined in and edited anime articles. I'm just saying that I will not be able to do much for other articles, except to point out what can be improved or formatted. Sounds like a great idea, but how will you accomplish this? People have different tastes, even for editing. Energy X 21:18, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Well I guess it could work, but we have to do this properly. By that, you could make a design of a new layout for these type of articles first, see what you can add and improve, before continuing on. I'm sure some of the templates could be redesigned, if not even new ones made, to optimize writing pages. We should think first before acting. At best, might be good to start off with one type of article (like locations) before continuing on. Energy X 21:31, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
LinkPreview was one of the requested features for UCP, I believe. Nothing more than wait for it, as this is done by the Staff. Personally, I can't wait for this, which would finally clear up the trouble with our move pages.
As for WikiOddish, I've noticed that there was a link left by a user to WikiDex. I can surmize that the Spanish version of this wiki has actually migrated to a different domain (non-Fandom), which appears to be a year ago, and the link to the site was put on a list that prevents users from placing that link on pages - even talk pages. (Same thing goes for posting a link to, say, mangadex.org; you can't publish the edit with that link because the staff has found the site to do illegal things.) I can only say on the matter that I finally praise that these guys had left; a lot of them simply ignored other versions, whined about how Fandom "wouldn't let them migrate", and they finally did it. Such snobiness was bound to rub someone off. Whatever you want to ask on this matter, you'll have to find yourself, since I don't know and really don't want to know. Energy X 21:40, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Well as said, you can already use WikiActivity by adding it to your JavaScript with Special:MyPage/common.js, following the procedure as shown on that page. As for LinkPreview, as seen here, it is not adapted to UCP yet, as most scripts are currently. Energy X 22:01, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Sprites

I'll get them then, thanks for notifying me. :) Dominoes I guess? 14:02, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

To me, the unchanged sprites are to mean that they are still small. Maybe it's because that the updated sprites are larger. Dominoes I guess? 14:10, 24 October 2020 (UTC)
Well, that is true. Dominoes I guess? 14:21, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Edit

It should be fixed when the new JS edit is approved. Until then, you can press the test mode to view the changes. Energy X 14:33, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

About connecting locations parameter

I think that we should use "North -", "South -", etc. on normal locations, but not in Wild Area, IoA and CT locations. They have long names that can make the parameter messy, plus the arrows already point the directions. Dominoes I guess? 04:17, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

Variants

I am honestly a bit frustrated how the characters' variant pages (anime/Adventures/Masters) are connected, considering just text links lie there, without any descriptions.

It is why I made a new gallery template to solve that, and it's very easy to use. What do you think of the design, does it need more colors (background, borders)? Energy X 23:51, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

Videos

Reading a book about design has me wondering a bit about how to present information. I think this is the million dollar idea: visiting the official Pokémon channel (YouTube, if necessary) and upload some of the most memorable scenes on the articles. One such thing is to display Ash-Greninja's attack on Alain's Charizard, for example. Like this. Energy X 23:04, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
