I'll create sandboxes of the "CharacterBox" and of another page to display what the changes would look like. Ellis99 Volcanion 17:48, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

This is the result. Go into editor to see the changes. Ellis99 Volcanion 18:05, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
The parametre makes it so it can switch between "anime" and "manga" in the categories. To see, look through the editor on this page. It merges all the character temp., rather than have different ones. Ellis99 Volcanion 18:35, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
So you would prefer to remove all the categories and replace them by season? I don't think users around here would exactly approve of that. I, for one, certainly don't. The intent of merging them is for category purposes. Ellis99 Volcanion 19:52, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Okay... could you show me an example of what you propose, once you're finished with what you're doing then? Ellis99 Volcanion 20:46, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Oooh... I agree with that, that's for sure :) I was thinking that same thing, but with the manga characters. Since that is the case, I could adapt my proposal the what you've just said. Ellis99 Volcanion 22:20, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Just altered the sandbox temp. of it. You can have a look at it now on the sandbox version of Shauna's page. Ellis99 Volcanion 22:31, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
I'll create other "blank" parametres that go upto eight (for each generation/anime series and Chronicles too). The changes will need a bot for sure. That was the intention from the start, otherwise having users do it will take months. Noreplyz could do it, more than likely in the New Year, since Dom told me that the integration was happening with foreign language wikis were happening too. Even though he said that a month or two ago, I'm sure there still some wikis than need migrating still. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:09, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
I've added the extra parametres and they work. Plus, I've stacked the switches and if's on top of eachother too, so it's easier to read too. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:40, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
So you saying the bot won't implement the switches then? Ellis99 Volcanion 14:52, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
I've just though... why not add the categories to the character temps. of each season? It would be easier and it could be a part of the shakeup of merging the character temps. by season to by series. Ellis99 Volcanion 17:28, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for sorting it out later :) I intended for it to be their. To me, this is how it should be: Template:CharacterBox replaces all other character temps. (except Pokémon Character Box, obviously). It keep the categories of anime, manga and games. The "Pokémon XX X char" temps. have the series character categories. I do agree with their being a problem with having anime, games and manga categories being on pages, while having the series character categories because it causes "double categorisation", where a page is in two categories that are linked to eachother. Ellis99 Volcanion 22:46, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

What was it that you had in mind for the "Pokémon TV" section in the Episode temp.? Ellis99 Volcanion 11:30, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

Also, I confirmed your message to Kyurem too. Ellis99 Volcanion 23:11, 18 December 2020 (UTC)
Alright then. It sounds to me that you're planning to leave earlier than expected? Ellis99 Volcanion 10:08, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

Please remember to re-order the chapters of X & Y Arc [1]. Ellis99 Volcanion 15:09, 12 December 2020 (UTC)


This valdal, thanks. Dominoes I guess? 02:40, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

Re: Masters

Relationships? I don't think any character boosts other on grounds of mutual relationships. Of course, as I said earlier, the type skills do boost each other. Like if there are two Water-types on the team and their type skills are levelled up, they will be boosted on the grounds of damage and HP. But then again. there are a couple of pairs that work spectacularly with each other. That happens in cases like, say, one is the best Special Attacker of the game, and the other is the best Special Support and such cases. --TheHacktivist42talk  •  contribs  Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg  11:43, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

  • No, all the passive skills mentioned in the description apply to the character. Of course, the number may vary from character to character, but the player doesn't 'choose' the skills.
  • Yeah. Only the same type.
  • Well, ALL the characters with the SAME type will benefit from the type skill boost. Like if all three on the team are fire types, all will benefit. The minimum number of same types on a team required to activate the skill is 2.
  • Yes. There are 4 levels from 1 to 4, and the magnitude by which the ATK/HP increases, increases with the level. --TheHacktivist42talk  •  contribs  Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg  11:55, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
One sync pair has one human and one pokemon, only. There are variations in some cases, like Rosa has TWO different sync pairs, Rosa-Snivy and Rosa (Holiday 2019 edition)-Delibird. They don't battle together and they can't even be used together. Similarly, Blue-Pidgeot and Sygna Suit Blue-Blastoise. They are two different entities! --TheHacktivist42talk  •  contribs  Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg  12:00, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

The 5 Stars Sync Pairs category was created earlier, by whoever created the earliest masters pages. The 5 Stars Potential Characters category was created by you, as an automatic addition in the Masters Pokémon template, so that every 5 star character can be added. The former is redundant, since it contains only 5 pages while the latter contains 13, which is roughly the number of 5 star characters whose pages we have in the wiki.
As for the Strikers ones, from what I can make out, the Strikers ones is for the physical strikers while the other is for the special strikers. --TheHacktivist42talk  •  contribs  Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg  15:13, 13 December 2020 (UTC)


The amount of content is exactly why I did so. You can take a look at the earlier revisions of Galar location pages. The Pokémon Dens section is basically a huge section that would otherwise take up most of the page (I am just working on the locations with the least dens now), which can grow up to more than 100,000 bytes - for some even over 150,000 - thus requiring a long time of scrolling and loading. That is exactly why I asked to Ellis about splitting the dens section from the main page in case of more than 3 dens.

As for tabbers, I have already used them in these pages. It is impossible to make a sub-tabber inside a tabber. Dominoes I guess? 14:38, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

If you are referring to orher pages like Master Trainers and Dynamax Adventures, that is fine. I will move the contents of the subpage back to the main page and try to prevent scrolling, e.g. using a collapsible table. Dominoes I guess? 14:49, 13 December 2020 (UTC)


Consider blocking this user the next time they add Air Slash into Ash's Farfetch'd's known moves section. (In case you are wondering, Ash ordered つじぎり (Night Slash), not Air Slash.) Dominoes I guess? 02:26, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

All right. Dominoes I guess? 10:39, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

I see that. It’s gonna take getting used to. But at least it’s better this way and a good improvement. That’ll help keep track the Pokémon evolution order and move set. Thanks for letting me know.—Jokeman20 (talk) 18:04, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

Pokémon Journeys Episode 50.

What evidence do you have that this episode is part of Season 23? I’ve come across an article earlier saying that Season 24 started after Episode 49. ~~The Thomas Fan 06~~


About that picture. It's an ending scene.Kyurem147 (talk) 07:36, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

About the templates

Did you want me to stop making them or just use the default code for the templates?SirJay0787 (talk) 18:51, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

Signature Temp.

A user renamed your signature temp. and edited the temp. itself too. Ellis99 Volcanion 21:57, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

Romaji and Translations

What was you plan on introducing Romaji to temp., while still keeping the translation of words? Ellis99 Volcanion 14:15, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

Different between Romaji and translation mostly affects towns and city pages. For example, Icirrus City in Romaji is Sekka City, but if it is translated, it is called Snowflake City. Ellis99 Volcanion 09:39, 25 December 2020 (UTC)


I've told Kittystyler to change the introduction of characters "(name) is a character appearing (series)", instead of adding categories which aren't needed on pages or are duplicates (she was adding the coordinators category to pages that had the top coordinators category on them). Ellis99 Volcanion 22:06, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

Kitty has been adding categories for a while now, but I think her actions could make a bigger impact elsewhere. Ellis99 Volcanion 09:39, 25 December 2020 (UTC)


Should I start deploying the passive- and type-skills template? --TheHacktivist42talk  •  contribs  Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg  06:25, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

Got it. I know you tested them on your sandbox, but, have the said template pages been created? Or should I create them? --TheHacktivist42talk  •  contribs  Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg  10:57, 20 December 2020 (UTC)


What do you mean same info on different places? What site are you referring?Kyurem147 (talk) 20:01, 20 December 2020 (UTC)


Really big thanks fo that. Will try to implement the features on those pages soon. Dominoes I guess? 23:49, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

Just one thing to confirm: is the pink background for images intended? Dominoes I guess? 03:04, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
This one, for example. The one in TCG card pages are even more obvious. Dominoes I guess? 10:49, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, but I cannot since I am not admin. Dominoes I guess? 11:15, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
This is something I have never thought of: thanks. Dominoes I guess? 11:54, 21 December 2020 (UTC)

About Mystery Dungeon characters (which can be in the media we have not thought of when making the infobox: games), should we edit the infobox or make a new one?

P.S. Just before you get confused, this revision entry is exactly what I wanted to ask you. Later I decided to ask about that here instead of in that edit, but I forgot to delete the whole text before submitting the edit. Dominoes I guess? 04:47, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

I would say there will be some limitations in using the infobox for that due to the infobox apparently dedicating to manga/anime Pokémon characters, but none of these seems to affect the how I would use it on MD character pages whatsoever (In other words, it seems to be fine to use while also not intended to be used like that). Dominoes I guess? 13:14, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

Above: Dynamax is not considered a true alternate form in any way; Gigantamax and Eternamax is. Unless it is for making a variable for the MoveBox, it would be useless otherwise.

Below: The edit... As I said in the revision, this is a really, really stupid way to achieve that thing. The thing is to remove the suffix from the National Dex parameter (eg. "888A" to "888"), since these suffixes are only for classifying the alternate forms internally and should not be shown publicly. I'm quite sure there are other ways to do it, although for me it is too advanced.

Sorry for any faults. Dominoes I guess? 15:43, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

Above: Hmm... Okay then.
Below: Thanks for that. Although it seems to be unusable after there are more than 1,000 Pokémon, this is something I have not learnt yet. Dominoes I guess? 23:50, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

Your “correction” of my edit.

The caption for Misty's Luvdisc, Caserin and Luverin. Should stay there as it is two of them. She also has not officially owned most of the Cerulean Gym's Pokémon (Dewgong, Shellder, etc) Check bulbapedia and you’ll understand what I’m talking about, but in my own knowledge, Misty never owned Dewgong and only used it for the performance. The contest situation with Ash is different, because the contest he participated in had different rules. While Misty had to return the Seaking she caught under the participation of the contest that she caught it in. —Preceding unsigned comment added by The Thomas Fan 06 (talkcontribs)


Ah alright, I'll keep that in mind. I didn't put the moves in that were used by their evolved forms because I have no idea when they were used in a certain stage. I was wondering though if I should still use the |evolved_in bit even if they haven't evolved on-screen (like in Paul's Electivire's case, it has evolved off-screen if I recall correctly)?--Lordranged7 (talk) 13:36, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

Alrighty. I unfortunately stumbled upon an issue with the movebox template that occured when I added the it on Paul's Aggron's page.--Lordranged7 (talk) 13:41, 22 December 2020 (UTC)
Ah nice, that's good to hear. Thanks for fixing it.--Lordranged7 (talk) 12:31, 24 December 2020 (UTC)


We should add appearance to Shauna (Hoenn) Sonic876 2.0 (talk) 21:05, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

True, but still. Some people have to know what they look like, despite of them not being the main character or a character from the game. Just saying. Sonic876 2.0 (talk) 09:27, 24 December 2020 (UTC)
How’s that even a thing? There’s no rule saying that appearances is reserved for only main characters that’s is just a bit ridiculous for that sorta thing. Sonic876 2.0 (talk) 17:08, 24 December 2020 (UTC)


I’ll admit, I’ve been a little stubborn against you. And I’m sorry. I get that you’re trying to show me what’s right and what’s wrong, but the way you’ve done it has been the same way AddictStudios has. I didn’t understand what I was doing back on the Thomas Wiki, and thought he was being a jerk. But while scrolling through his message wall, I realized that he had no other choice, the admins were supposed to act this way and couldn’t just baby users. But in my opinion, I just think that makes everything worse, so it’s been hard to trust admins that have scolded me for rule infractions. And it’s basically the duty of the users to help improve the wiki, and that includes me. I’ll understand if you won’t accept my apology. —Preceding unsigned comment added by The Thomas Fan 06 (talkcontribs)

PokémonCharacterBox and Pokémon TV

PokémonCharacterBox - I saw you creating it in your sandbox last weekend. I think what you've created is a great temp. :) It has been severely needed, instead of having previous evolution images in the gallery.

Pokémon TV - Yes, there is other languages of it.

Ellis99 Volcanion 09:39, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Also, I would change the Japanese and English cells around and add explode to the ep. links too. Ellis99 Volcanion 09:46, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
To add, I also think galleries of Pokémon characters should be split along evolutionary lines too. Ellis99 Volcanion 10:03, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
Another thing to add too, info in the TCG card temp. is shunted to the left, with there now being a large space to the right. Ellis99 Volcanion 10:08, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Forgot to mention that I'll be adding the eps. of Generations and Origins from YouTube too. Ellis99 Volcanion 10:11, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

I sent a reply to Dom and I saw your message to him about the background of temps. being pink still (I still see, but I'm not that bothered about it). Why don't we have a Theme Design manager, who solely deals with the theme of the wiki? Ellis99 Volcanion 10:36, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

In future, I'll explain myself better :) I do understand that Alan is the Theme Manager here, but I think it would be better to have someone solely devoted to it, while not related to any other part of the wiki like discussions or editing. There is something off about the TCG box, apart from the header of the temp. I don't know what it is, but it is something. Pokémon TV is in, apart from English, American Spanish, Danish, Spanish, Finnish (surprisingly), French, Dutch, Italian, German, Norwegian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian and Sweden. Ellis99 Volcanion 11:55, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
Also, I think it would be best to ask Noreplyz to change "Pokémon Character Box" to "PokémonCharacterBox" and to add and remove parametres too. It's better than doing it manually. Ellis99 Volcanion 12:04, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
Okay then. I don't what it is about the TCG temp., I don't know. Anyway, Noreplyz is on standby for other changes via a bot. Ellis99 Volcanion 12:23, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
Could you express in the PokemonCharacterBox temp. that when there is, for example, |media = anime + |type = Psychic, the category "Psychic-type anime Pokémon" appears in the category section? This is what I planned from the beginning. Ellis99 Volcanion 12:31, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
Hmmm... I'm not to sure about that. I think would be splitting hairs too much, to be honest. If it were to be, it would have to be something like "Pokémon the Series: The Beginning Poison-type Pokémon". What you said would cause what we are trying to prevent, which is double categories (both going to the same category). I think that variant temp. will have to be renamed sometime in the future, if a variant temp. is going to be created in the future for Pokémon characters too. Ellis99 Volcanion 15:19, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
Essentially, it will be series then type when it comes to categories? I might come round to it, once I see it. I'll make a note of the images in future too :) Ellis99 Volcanion 18:40, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
If you are wondering if I am going to make a forum post on yearly goals, I still am. I'll be making it on Monday. For January, I was thinking that the distinction between the trailers with the page names should be made. Currently, for example, Cheren has trailer pages, B2W2 and Masters. The B2W2 trailer page needs to be renamed "Cheren (Black 2 and White 2 trailer)". Ellis99 Volcanion 18:51, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
I found a pic on Google Images, which is from Bulba, and it has Sidney, Phoebe, Glacia, Wattson, Brawley and Roxanne in it. If, the image can be found elsewhere, I think it should be in the gallery section of the respective pages listed. Ellis99 Volcanion 18:57, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
Also, I've added the Romaji parametre to the "PokémonCharacterBox" temp. too, since we need the Romaji form of names. Ellis99 Volcanion 19:41, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
The way things will be marked is similar to how the merger with Azurilland will go, but with users stating what they will be focused on or if they are a "jack of all trades, master of none" type of user, like myself. I didn't realise both the the MoveBox and the new PokémonCharacterBox were reliant on eachother. I'll make a note of it in future. Ellis99 Volcanion 21:11, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
As for the trailers, I agree, but what do we do with the Pokémon pages? Ellis99 Volcanion 21:11, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
Also, the "'s" in the |ja_romaji parametre needs changing to "no", as that is the possessive in Japanese. Ellis99 Volcanion 21:15, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Will do then :) Ellis99 Volcanion 21:28, 25 December 2020 (UTC)


How about, for example, Rosa's Serperior's moves? What do we do with those images? Ellis99 Volcanion 21:22, 25 December 2020 (UTC)


Could you sort out the CharacterBox temp. so the tabs shows the artwork belongs to which game, like with the MangaCharacter temp.? Ellis99 Volcanion 10:39, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Also, could you use your bot to change all the |?_lang parametres to |?_name since we use |en_name and |ja_name now :) Ellis99 Volcanion 13:10, 26 December 2020 (UTC)
I'd rather all parametres with lang become name, as "ja" and "en" use name. As for tooltips, I'll change the temp. to remove them. Dom first used tt on the ep. temp., so I went along with it. Ellis99 Volcanion 14:30, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

I've managed to incorporate the Pokémon TV section into the titles and airdates sections properly :) Ellis99 Volcanion 22:07, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

I got the idea from Wikipedia on song pages. I'll have a look at how to do it. Ellis99 Volcanion 22:34, 26 December 2020 (UTC)
The temp. works :) Here is the temp. Ellis99 Volcanion 23:01, 26 December 2020 (UTC)
The link is different in other languages. For example, the French has this, and Italian has this, Ellis99 Volcanion 17:15, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
Doesn't matter. I've adapted the template to the changes that were needed. Ellis99 Volcanion 17:31, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
The reason why I think Pokémon TV should have its own section is because by adding it to the airdate, it looks squashed. Ellis99 Volcanion 17:32, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
As for the Spanish ep. names, I made an assumption that the Spanish names on Spanish Wikipedia were just translations of the English names, but I've just checked and I was wrong. Ellis99 Volcanion 17:54, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
Also, could you change the episode code so it has the language abbreviation at the start of episode code parametre, as the title isn't the same in each language. Ellis99 Volcanion 17:59, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for that :) Ellis99 Volcanion 19:32, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
I simply prefer it if they were separated. For example, look at this page [2]. It has the release date and the YouTube section separate. That is what I wish for the episode temp. (that being that the Pokémon TV section has its own header, but inside the same cell as the titles and airdates). Ellis99 Volcanion 19:38, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for that :) I want to make the temp look something similar to what you might find on Wikipedia. I think merging the two might be ideal. As for the naming convention, I think there should be one. I tried to establish one years ago (about 2015-16), but it didn't catch one. What you're doing with the Adventures images is something I would like to see rolled out across the wiki. I have an idea what the image names could look like, adapting from the image names of the Adventures images you renamed. If you're wondering why I added the "Rename" temp. to pages, but never renamed them, it is more or less a reminder for in the future to do :) Ellis99 Volcanion 22:59, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

No Image.png

I've attempted to remake this file, but, well, to me the result is worse than what I expected.

Dominoes I guess? 02:52, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

Also, this extremely stubborn user keeps adding unconfirmed content to pages. Dominoes I guess? 06:47, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for both. The reason I wanted to remake the image is because the current one has "impure" pixels around the edges of the text, and it can blend in with some backgrounds (hence why I used both black and white in my remake). Dominoes I guess? 10:58, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

Image Naming Convention

Following on from the previous conversation above, I do think there should be an image naming convention. I've seen quite images across the wiki having the possessive "'s" with the majority not having it. I feel that images should have the possessive. What do you think? I also think images of character that only appear in one game shouldn't have, for example, "DPPt" in the name of the image. I think that, as I've said, they should go along the lines of the images from Adventures that you renamed over the last few days. For example, [[File:HeartGoldSoulSilverLance.png]] becomes [[File:Lance HeartGold and SoulSilver.png]]. Ellis99 Volcanion 12:20, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

Also, the reason why put it back into one column is because there are less than 25 references. If there is more, it's split into two. Ellis99 Volcanion 12:26, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
To add, I think something needs sorting out with some of the parametres in the PokemonCharacterBox temp. as the debut of Ash's Pikachu won't show up and some parametres on Leon's Charizard (anime) won't show up either. They're all related to the parametres of when it evolved, eps. upto its evolution and its debut. Ellis99 Volcanion 15:45, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
What I was thinking was that since Bulba doesn't have the class title in the page names, we should rename them to without, but keep the existing page names as a redirect. As for the references, I could exactly remember, but there was something that the agreed division number for the columns would be 25 (quite a few months back I'm talking). I think what is needed is for an example of the usage of the new Pokémon temps. I've created a usage section on the PokemonCharacterBox (which took a bit of time, mostly going back and forth to see if this or that parametre exists for each stage). A bot could change the links with the possessive and users or using MassRename could rename the images. I suppose you are right though, there are more pressing matters to deal with than where an image has a possessive or not. It's just that a few things that I thought would've been done when I wasn't here haven't. Anyway, if you could, could you create a usage section for the PokemonCharacterMoveBox, so users know how to use it please? :) Ellis99 Volcanion 19:45, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
That looks a lot better :) Thanks for that :) I'll make an edit to the temp. to indicate where the links go to, so people/users know. Ellis99 Volcanion 09:33, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
Actually, I think the parametre would need to be split, now that I think about it, to indicate YT and PKMN TV. Also, I'll look at the SWSH chapter and happy new year :) Ellis99 Volcanion 09:38, 1 January 2021 (UTC)


My information isn't worthless about the trivia for the episode PJ036: Making Battles in the Sand!. Please, can you restore the trivia of PJ036: Making Battles in the Sand! when Goh saying Ash Ketchum because he is one of the main protagonists to say Ash Ketchum during an episode like Misty, May, Dawn, Iris and Serena did when they traveled alongside Ash. Plus, please restore the trivia about May (anime) because those information are pretty useful for the wikia. This information is pretty useful. Please stop erasing this information. May was the only character to give a personal narration of her introduction in the series until Lillie (anime) at the beginning of SM045: Now You See Them, Now You Don't!, SM046: Deceiving Appearances!, SM047: A Masked Warning!, SM049: Mission: Total Recall!, SM050: Faba's Revenge!, SM051: Family Determination!, SM052: Revealing the Stuff of Legend!, SM053: Rescuing the Unwilling!, SM054: 10,000,000 Reasons to Fight!, and SM055: The Professors' New Adventure!. The two information that was erased belongs on the trivia permanently plus it is always pretty useful.

Form Images

Is there a way you could change the "PokémonCharacterBox" temp. so form images could appear. For example, Leon's Aegislash has been shown in both its Sword and Shield forms. It would be nice for both images to appear in the temp., similar to "Steven Stone (Adventures) page. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:18, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Also, the Chinese parametres in the ep. temp need splitting into Cantonese and Mandarin. The Mandarin parametre needs to |cn-cmn and the Cantonese needs to be |cn-yue. I've also tried to split it in the PokemonCharacterBox temp., but the parametre that has Mandarin written in it only appears in the preview too. Ellis99 Volcanion 15:53, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
I'll change to zh. Ellis99 Volcanion 16:14, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for that :) The reason why I didn't what to use "|4-" is because it would look a bit weird having "Stage 1" and "Sword Form" as tabs. Ellis99 Volcanion 18:35, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
As for Mandarin and Cantonese, there is a slight difference in translation. Ellis99 Volcanion 19:05, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
Raihan in Mandarin is 奇巴納 or 奇巴纳, but in Cantonese it is 奇巴納. They are translated differently to as from Mandarin, his name is Qíbānà and in Cantonese, he is Kèihbānaahp. For |ja_romaji, it's mostly the translation of Pokémon names. The trainer's name doesn't change, but the Pokémon's does. For example, Cinderance in Romaji is Eesubaan, but when translated it is Aceburn. It's a good job that you've learnt to alter parametres and insert them too :) You're going a great job! :) If you need help, ask Noreplz :) Ellis99 Volcanion 20:45, 1 January 2021 (UTC)


I was thinking that the info in the movebox temp. should be aligned. For example, this is Pike Queen Lucy's Seviper.

|type = Poison
|img  =
Lucy Seviper Poison Tail.png {{!}} Using Poison Tail
Lucy's Seviper Flamethrower.png {{!}} Using Flamethrower
Lucy Seviper Bite.png {{!}} Using Bite
|move =
Poison Tail; poison; RS159: Queen of the Serpentine!
Flamethrower; fire; RS159: Queen of the Serpentine!
Bite; dark; RS159: Queen of the Serpentine!

This is what it would look like after.

|type = Poison
|img  =
Lucy Seviper Poison Tail.png    {{!}} Using Poison Tail
Lucy's Seviper Flamethrower.png {{!}} Using Flamethrower
Lucy Seviper Bite.png           {{!}} Using Bite
|move =
Poison Tail;  poison; RS159: Queen of the Serpentine!
Flamethrower; fire;   RS159: Queen of the Serpentine!
Bite;         dark;   RS159: Queen of the Serpentine!

I would've like the info in the move parametre to be aligned, but it looks odd. What do you think? Ellis99 Volcanion 11:36, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Actually, it's okay-ish. Ellis99 Volcanion 11:44, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
I'm okay with doing it myself :) I'll ask Noreplz if it can be done via a bot though, just incase :) Ellis99 Volcanion 13:11, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
I was thinking that it was possibly for that. I was in the process of changing the links one-by-one since there aren't that many and then rename the image. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:39, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
I work backwards, so I know what the image links to and then rename the image. It's something I've always done. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:49, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Categories, but not about removing

Should we remame the improperly named categories (e.g. "Pokémon trainers", "Generation III abilities", "Trainers with Regional variants" and use a bot to edit all pages included in these categories? The reason I asked this is because it requires a lot of work to make everything in the problem right. Dominoes I guess? 07:30, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Sure, I'll send them later. Dominoes I guess? 23:43, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Do you see episodes of Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon, Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon-Ultra Adventures and Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon-Ultra Legends and a flashback of PJ037 when Lillie (anime) doesn't always wear her hat like her game counterpart Lillie?

The words specialize and sympathize don't have a letter s. The words favorite and behavior don't have a vowel u. Misty owns Caserin while Daisy owns Luverin.

Did you notice that Misty and her sister Daisy each owned a Luvdisc that are nicknamed Caserin and Luverin? Misty (anime) doesn't own two of them because Caserin belongs to Misty while Luverin belongs to Daisy. This is the link.

Appears In parametre

I was wondering if you could change the "Appears In" parametre appear above the "Debut" parametre. I looks better. The parametre order, in my opinion, should be media, series/arc, then ep./chapter. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:47, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks :) Ellis99 Volcanion 18:43, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
I've added a blank parametre to the "Missing Image" temp., as there wasn't one before. Ellis99 Volcanion 19:33, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
Espresso Café has uploaded better quality images to their MediaFire, it includes chapter 1-5 and 7-15. This is their Tumblr account. Ellis99 Volcanion 20:20, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
I'll write it sometime next week. Ellis99 Volcanion 20:31, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
By the way, I like what you're doing, by adding coloured images of Pokémon! :) It's something that differentiates us from Bulba. Ellis99 Volcanion 11:49, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Also, I've added "Voice actors" parametres to the "PokémonCharacterBox" temp. The names of the parametres are the same as the ones in the "AnimeCharacter" temp. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:55, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
To be honest, I was thinking of that. Do you think it should happen with the opening and ending themes for eps. too? Ellis99 Volcanion 14:20, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Okay then :) Ellis99 Volcanion 14:29, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Reworking page One, Two, Three

Hi, I was thinking about completely reworking One, Two, Three as the same page is currently used for three different openings. However, I don't know which one of these would be the best way:

  • Creating three seperate pages for the three versions
  • Split the page up into three parts
    • In this case what should I do with the infobox?

Thank you, zsotroav (Cantact me here!) 14:04, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Yes, Both the visuals, and the performer of the song are different in all three versions. Only the lyrics are consistent. -zsotroav (Cantact me here!) 15:04, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

So you are saying that I should make new sections. Should I make different infoboxes for the different versions or do some html/css to make an interactive one? (Altough I'm not sure I have the power to do that) -zsotroav (Cantact me here!) 12:08, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

I would want to seperate the appereances and description of the different versions since they are different intros afterall. -zsotroav (Cantact me here!) 12:50, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

That thing again

That user keeps prompting me to copy content from Bulbapedia and doesn't listen to my response. Dominoes I guess? 15:46, 9 January 2021 (UTC)


Don't you get that,_Two,_Three#Characters_3 is more efficient than the Pokémon wikia's version of,_Two,_Three because it is pretty much worthless than the Bulbapedia's version of,_Two,_Three#Characters_3 which is more useful and it has more information?


How can I be an administrator?


How can I block you and Dominoes for harassing me? You and Dominoes always harass me every day and every month. Plus I'm sick of you and Dominoes keep constantly harassing me? Why did you and Dominoes always have to do that to me? You and Dominoes deserve to be blocked permanently if you and Dominoes won't learn the lesson about harassing other users like me?


Remember this user? He is plagiarizing images from Bulbapedia, again. Dominoes I guess? 04:09, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Parametre Changes

Could you changes the parametres of "|can_air" and "|aus_air" to "|ca_air" and "|au_air". The reason why is because they are incorrect and don't follow the ISO 3116 standard (If you didn't know, it's the International Organisation of Standard's coding for countries, territories and others.). Ellis99 Volcanion 10:02, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Will do. I don't move the semicolon, but I do see where you're coming from equating it with the equals sign though. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:38, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Trainer's Pokemon temp.

There is still an issue with the temp. The colours can only be seen via a comparison with previous edits on a page. Ellis99 Volcanion 14:37, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Yes, I've don it before. Ellis99 Volcanion 20:16, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
That would really help, otherwise if someone is new to Pokémon, thy might think that is its only stage, when the Pokémon might have two or three stages to its evolutionary line :) Ellis99 Volcanion 22:14, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Also, could you sort out what may be going on with the PKMNCharBox temp. as the tab name for the third stage shows something peculiar on "Leon's Charizard (anime)" (more than likely the coding). Ellis99 Volcanion 22:29, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Doesn't matter, the temp. was missing a brace. Ellis99 Volcanion 22:36, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
I understand and the reason why it didn't show up is because there was a brace missing next the word "form" in "Earliest form". Ellis99 Volcanion 22:40, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
To add, could you sort the edit dispute between two users over the "Semi-Pseudo Legendary Pokémon" page please :) It's supposed to be a redirect to the Pseudo Legendary Pokémon page and also protect it too, from future edits also. Ellis99 Volcanion 22:49, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Male and Female Pokémon Character Pages

I've just realised, because of the new PKMN char temp. the pages of Pokémon with different gender differences that belong to the same trainer can merge. For example, "Olympia's Meowstic (male)]" and "Olympia's Meowstic (female; anime)" can become "Olympia's Meowstic (anime)" and "Olympia's Meowstic (female; Adventures)" becomes "Olympia's Meowstic (Adventures)". Ellis99 Volcanion 13:33, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Just wanted to confirm ;) Ellis99 Volcanion 15:11, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

James Castle

Could you talk to a user called James Castle please, he's changing the airdates to their long form,, instead of the format being the short form. Ellis99 Volcanion 16:20, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Ability Images

Quick question, is it possible that you could find a way to incorporate ability images into the PKMNCharBox temp.? Ellis99 Volcanion 22:00, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

I understand and I'll start the forum next Friday. Ellis99 Volcanion 23:38, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Actually, I've come round to the idea of having the long form of airdates. The reason is that I suggested not that long ago that Wikipedia elements should be incorporated into the infoboxes. As we have links to where to watch episodes, it makes sense to adopt the way they write airdats. Is it possible you could use your bot to change the airdates into the longer form of typing them? Ellis99 Volcanion 10:39, 22 January 2021 (UTC)


This user keeps adding the same useless text to Poké Ball pages while ignoring my undos and warnings. This has repeated around four times. Dominoes I guess? 08:00, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Edit request

Like I said before, Misty doesn’t actually own the Cerulean Gym’s Dewgong and Shellder, she has access to them due to her being the gym leader. I’ve tried to fix it, but the move page option is missing. And I assume that Admins can get past this.

Request regarding rights.

Energy, real life’s been hitting me hard right now. Too many burdens. Wouldn’t be able to discharge my duties as a moderator efficiently under such circumstances. Could you please revert my rights temporarily? I will definitely inform you of my return. Probably after March. ‘Shashank. Shashank Singh 22:09, 19 January 2021 (UTC) Shashank Singh


thanks. I have to appear for a competitive examination on the 31st, and given that my annuals might be either preponed to mid Feb or March, I don’t think it’ll suit my studies to continue having the rights.


This user keeps creating spam, unnecessary pages. Dominoes I guess? 06:00, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Adventures Character Images

Would you like me to change the names of the Adventures main character images? So they are like the Pokémon character images names? Ellis99 Volcanion 14:38, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Legendary Titans Images

You need to rename the titan images as they don't have Brandon's name in them. Ellis99 Volcanion 20:03, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

If you need help with the airdates, best ask Noreplz. The reason why I mentioned it is because you created links to the coloured images with "Brandon's" at the beginning on the respective pages of the titans. Ellis99 Volcanion 20:43, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

“Misty's” Dewgong and Shellder

Adside from Bulbapedia source, I’ve seen most of the original series and I know that Misty does not own these Pokémon and lies the only one with access to them, she has never carried either of these Pokémon in her party. I’d like to remind you that her sisters also have access to Dewgong and Shellder, due to them also being the Gym Leaders, which is why these pages should be renamed to “Cerulean Gym's Dewgong” and “Cerulean Gym's Shellder”. If you’re wondering why I can’t rename the pages, myself, it’s because there is no option to rename the pages, and I assume this signaled an admin-only ability, so I was wondering if you could fix these.

Alan sycamore

So I was told to come here, I want you to ask Alan why he banned me from both the Pokemon wiki discord and the alternative universe wiki. I think in my opinion it is because he wants to be whear he has full power —Preceding unsigned comment added by Glaceon boy (talkcontribs)

Ash's Dracovish

Mr. Energy X I have a question for why can't we put some information about Ash's Newest Pokémon Dracovish? I know tell people not to add trivia about Greninja and Hawlucha because it is not notable, but why exactly? Ash had Greninja six seasons (11 years) ago in the Pokémon anime and was release back in 2016, which five years ago and he didn't have a Water type during his journey in Alola in the Pokémon Sun and Moon anime and finally got Dracovish as his Water Type Pokémon in Pokémon Journeys this year. Aldo I have to ask why you don't put Dracovish as Ash's first Generation VIII Pokemnon because I know that Dracovish is his second Pokémon he caught in the Galar, with his Galarian Farfetch'd being the first, but Farfecth'd is a regional variant and hasn't evolve into Sirfecth'd (which is a Generation VIII Pokémon) as of yet so how come we can just put them as they are? I don't mind follow rules here in the wiki as you know do my best to but I just want ask something that need to ask and really want to if that's ok with you.

Lego Master BB, 5:50 A.M January 24, 2021.

Champion's Pokémon

Mr. Energy X, I know I ask you about the Champion's Pokémon Category and putting Ash's Pokémon in that category, but still, why can't we just put in that category too? I know Ash is a Pokémon Champion since he won his first official Pokémon League in Alola and is the 1st Champion of Alola and no else know about it since he kept his Pokémon Champion's status a secret from other people in together regions (except for Alola of course), can't we joust at label his Pokémon as Champion's Pokémon since as is a Champion? If not, that's ok, I just want to really make sure about that if u don't mind me again if that['s alright wit sir.

Lego Master BB, 6:04 A.M January 24, 2021.


There are some certain members who have had always tried to defame me. Glaceon Boy with the help of the discord server messaged me privately, sent a video and said I was a corrupt admin. He didn't state why and I didn't feel like messaging him back. The action was a ban from the server because he could influence others as well. Alan Sycamore!
