ExCUSE me, buddy, but do you appreciate the fact that I'm trying to HELP?!? I will not stop editting the Mew page. Can someone for once just APPRECIATE the helpfullness I'm doing?!?


I would also say to allow it. I can't really hurt to try out something new. And whether we do or do not like it, we could give feedback about it to the staff.

Okay, sure. That's seems easy enough.--[me[User:Jokeman20|Jokeman20]] (talk) 13:45, March 22, 2017 (UTC)

A Pokedex upgrade!

Hi energy x , on december 26th , you had asked annabeth percy whether i should be made a discussion moderator or tom and she is satisfied with me ,i had been a bit inactive but now i'm active again. As for tom maybe he'll have a problem managing both lW wikia and this wikia, i do have a few edits and i'll start editing from today onwards so can you please promote me to a discussion moderator, in the discussions also no one has a problem with me, khallesi is also inactive , i can take zikari's place and it's been a while since i joined this wikia so i have experience and i'll do my best so please think of making me a mod.

Um Energy X,

I don't mean to complain and all, but what is wrong with using images from other sites? It doesn't hurt other wikis. Other people use images from other wikis and nothing happens. I think it's okay with using other images from other sites. What's wrong with that?

Pokemon Adventures Vol. 53

Got a new e-mail from that the release date has been postponed again. Though it lists a date in that e-mail, right now it is not listing a date or showing up when you look on their search engine. Because I purchased it first chance I got is the reason why I get these e-mails in the first place, so it keeps me informed. I am sure once the Japanese release date is announce it would help end all these release date changes. -Adv193 (talk) 14:36, April 17, 2017 (UTC)

Inpersonation on Discussion post

Hi Energy X, Can you check out my reported post, Reason is i'm thinking Dragon Trainer Red is an inpersonation of Alpha Red 1 so you notice.

Page: Ash's Greninja

Sir, it has come to my notice that the page "Ash's Greninja" needs some serious editing. I am currently working on it but it will take a lot of time for me to make the page decent. Meowth was being writtwn as Mewoth, Fletchling as Fletching, incomplete sentences/fragments, abusing of past tense and many other gramatical mistakes are visible. So, hereby I ask your help in editing the page as most of the Pokefans these days are a big fan of Ash's Greninja. I would feel obliged if you would help me and be always ready to help you in any work.

Hello EnergyX! One user, VaniVyjin, has brought up tge fact that there has been a lot of Off-Topic posts. Many other users are also showing their distaist about the problem. In my opinion, the banning of the creation of these posts would be good. Giving the users other choices of talking to eachother would be great too. Like stating about Talkpages, Social media, ect. If you like this addition please tell. If you choose talk page, it may take a while for me to respond. Also I recommend VaniVyjin for the choice of a new moderator. Bye. Billvee (talk)billvee

For some new people the old one's are leaving wiki.Anupama suresh,blue trainer and akshay ajith are spamming and behaving rude. People are annoyed by them. ~Regards

The user Fatboyslim2005 has 2 alts which are Kurama the ninetails and Eldrago destractor. He is abusing multiple accounts and behaving rude to other people. The user Ash the kalos champion is also doing the same with him.

"ElDrago destructor" and "Ash The Kalos Champion:"

Hello, Energy X. There's are two users who are trying to insult others. Both of them are abusing me. There main motive to destroy me and throw me out of wiki. There's another User-"Serena the performer 22" who is suffering from this. I can't tolerate such amount of insult to me and my friends. It's my humble request to ban both of them, coz they are totally going against the rule and are "insulting other users". Just because of them, me and the user " Serena The performer 22" are leaving the wiki. By this sentence, you may have understood from what we are suffering. There's nothing which can help us except you. Plz Ban them. For more convinience, where user "ash the kalos champion and eldrago destructor" are insulting, here's the link:

Hey, I want to request a welcome notice for this user, and I don't know if Template:Welcome is a publicly usable template or an administrator-only template, since it doesn't say anything about which user groups are permitted to use it in the policies, so I assume it's a publicly usable template like on Bulbapedia, but I'm not sure. PokémonGamer* 15:00, May 20, 2017 (UTC)
This appears to be an occurring issue. We could possibly send a bug report through Special:Contact. The only advantage is that it does not auto-welcome vandals or sockpuppets, and that's why Wikipedia does not auto-welcome users, and requires us to welcome the users manually through Twinkle.

Roleplay Battles

Energy X, the link you gave us to do RP battles is not working well with the users. In these past few days, only one or two users have used it. The reason others are not using it is , its uncomfortable to go their as a site and battle. If you can please do us a favour, can you please unban the rp battling? Because as per the rules of rp battling, only the battling can be done there and no chatting we can do on such posts.Also, there is no chance of insulting someone coz we basically just command our pokemons to attack/dodge move. I agree with you for the banning of off topic posts but banning rp battles are unreasonable. Please think about it. Regards... Ash vs gary (talk)


Hello, Energy X, there has beem recently seen a user called "Mintu drugcorner" spamming and insulting other users. One of the links is Kindly delete his/her reply and block him coz he is violating almost 3 rules, so you notice. Thanks Ash vs gary (talk) 07:24, May 23, 2017 (UTC)

A problem

Energy X, there are two users who are continously violating the rules by chatting in off topic posts which are not allowed. They chat on daily basis by searching old off topic posts. Here's the link:-

Those user names are, "Dragon Trainer Red" and "Riya Khanna". It would be1 better, if you block them temporarily coz they are still not following the rules. Regards. Ash vs gary (talk) 17:54, May 23, 2017 (UTC)

Okay. I am also able to get images in 1920x1080, like how Kyurem has changed images I've uploaded that are 1280x720 with 1566x881, so as for SM002, that's not the sole reason I changed the image for that instance specifically. Although I am able to get the Advanced Generation episodes in Japanese and most of the Best Wishes episodes so for images that have Cartoon Network or Disney XD logo (since those are more noticeable logos), I can get those ones without the logo if there's any additional text (such as with that episode in Best Wishes). Some of these images though, I just downloaded them and removed the logo in Photoshop rather than finding a spot in the episode versions I have without the logo, although I do agree it's not worth it that much if there's more significant stuff to do off to the side, whereas Bulbapedia is more strict since it requires that their images should not have a logo on them (even those small ones in the Japanese version). PokémonGamer* 20:57, May 23, 2017 (UTC)

UK dates

Maybe we can list the UK dates in the trivia only if they come before the US airing? We already have trivia on other episodes for episodes that air in Canada and the United Kingdom before the US. It's definitely noteworthy if the English dub airs in another country before the US, and I'm able to watch the UK's CITV myself, so I'll be able to watch The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair! when it airs in the UK one day before the US so I'll know what the Who's that Pokémon? segment features. PokémonGamer* 18:41, May 24, 2017 (UTC)

Also, if an image is from an old episode (the 4:3 era episodes in other words), and if it's too dark, then as seen here, I can download and edit the image in Photoshop to increase and correct the brightness for any image, and it doesn't require me to do additional work to track down the time stamp obtain the image from the episode.

Thank you sir for checking i'll remember to do that next time by sending a worning. Also one last little request can i have a copy of your Roleplay post as a link? It's in case users on there wanted to do Roleplay and i'll have it and send a link of it. Thanks regards...Trainer Micah (talk) 19:40, May 24, 2017 (UTC)

Make sure to permanently block Gcool2 then since it's a sockpuppet. I'm reporting all the posts since they're being made in block evasion, and you can use the "delete all" button to remove all the discussion posts made by that user. PokémonGamer* 16:43, May 26, 2017


Yes, I am able to get the images from SM015 without any text on them, and I know you use the #pocketmonsters Fansubs torrents, because as you may already be aware, I have the Japanese episodes of Pokémon that are not fansubbed and have no logo or any other fansub-added garbage (in other words, the subtitles they add to songs such as the opening theme, which they don't give you an option to turn them off in any media player that has options). I also have a Content Moderator request on the requests for rights like how Ellis and Rachin123 applied (although they haven't been active for months), since Ellis99 said that I should apply for it months after getting rollback so this is long overdue that I'm just doing this now after a year ago. I'll have to do them tomorrow (in your time zone, this means hours from now when I wake up), as I don't have time now. PokémonGamer* 03:59, May 29, 2017 (UTC)

Magikarp spam

A user named Workhardforlife is spamming a link to a site to hack Magikarp Jump and I even told them that if they continue, I'll have to request a block against them. So maybe they can be blocked for 3 days? PokémonGamer* 18:48, May 29, 2017 (UTC)

There's a vandal on here too. I used undo to revert the edit because I accidentally clicked on it instead of rollback, however it appears the user has done the same vandalism over a month ago, so I would recommending blocking for around 2 weeks this time, 1 month at most. I believe it should be left for you to decide the block length this time. PokémonGamer* 19:35, May 29, 2017 (UTC)
Nevermind, seems Lordranged7 already blocked the vandal for a week (sorry for the mistake, it wasn't for a month, I was just confusing it a bit), anyway the vandal's blocked. PokémonGamer* 19:36, May 29, 2017 (UTC)
Also, Mewtwoclone created the SM030 page but we're not supposed to have SM030 or SM031 up yet until they're confirmed because the site where Serebii got the episode from is from a Japanese textboard post that did not cite a source to an image or any other reliable source - even Serebii forums says it's unconfirmed on a different basis than the fact that where they got it from is a fan textboard that did not cite their source (which is what textboard users sometimes take advantage of to propagate fake titles to the Pokémon fandom, otherwise there's a source but they refuse to cite it) - and I know where Serebii gets their information from, so Serebii listing it alone is not reliable enough, unless the Japanese textboard they get it from has a source cited (because both the textboard and karubiimunomono's twitter account will have the magazine cited when it's released and confirmed). Can you delete the SM030 page until it's confirmed then? I have SM030 and SM031 under my user sandbox pages [[User:ThePokémonGamer/SM030]] and [[User:ThePokémonGamer/SM031]] so I'll rename those when it's confirmed or the pages can be re-created then. PokémonGamer* 01:35, May 30, 2017 (UTC)

(reset indent) This may also be worrying. The user who posted that thread knows Japanese and is the translation checker for the #pocketmonsters fansubs team I've seen you post plot summaries before the fansubs are out (whereas SM022 only released yesterday on the fansub blog), and if they come from this "translator" (who, according to the thread, has been doing it ever since the XY anime started), if they turn out to be wrong, then you can fix it afterward since you follow by the fansubs. I can confirm the events in the Sophocles episode in the part where Rotom Pokédex assists Ash with a present for Sophocles, since I've listened to the dialogue a bit and can get the context of the scene, although I don't know who the "translator" he's talking about is. Same goes for the Spanish subs, which he also warned about when XY&Z's episode Party Dancecapades! aired in Japan. PokémonGamer* 19:25, May 30, 2017 (UTC)


A user named CORNERPANDA has vandalized pages by screwing up the Pokémon's category description. I'm sometimes afraid to post vandalism reports like this publicly as it gives the troll some attention (and I understand I'll need to wait around hours from now because of your timezone), but I'm just asking if you can block them for 3 days.

Energy X, a user named Sirisha Bhanu (?)

So, would it be okay to rename the IL038 article now? PokémonGamer* 18:02, June 3, 2017 (UTC)

Another question: a user named Fatboyslim2005 is going to be 13 tomorrow. Maybe you can set his chat ban to expire tomorrow? (his birthday is June 6, 2004) Also, if a user admitted their age on a wiki and they're under 13, I think it can be sent straight to Wikia Support without needing to block them at all. I've reported around 10 or so users through there in the past and they disable the account anyway, so them disabling the account means it cannot be accessed on any wiki, which is better in comparison than just blocking them on a single wiki, and it enforces the local policy by not allowing them to even use the account. Privacy protection reasons can come into play by blocking them though if they admit it in chat, because then we cannot get legitimate evidence to send to Wikia (unless a user from Wikia Staff is in chat while the user is admitting their age).

TV Tokyo

I think we should have an article on TV Tokyo, the channel that broadcasts Pokémon anime in Japan, since it's the original broadcaster of the series, and we already have articles for the dub broadcasters, such as Kids' WB!, Cartoon Network, and the current one Disney XD, and being the broadcaster of the original Japanese version is absolutely notable. TV Tokyo is only available in the Kanto region of the country, however it does have affiliate channels on the TV Tokyo network across the country that also broadcast Pokémon (as seen by the "TVH" logo in Kyurem's image here since it's from TV Hokkaido's broadcast of the episode) which could be noted in a sentence of the article, since TV Tokyo is the main one, and we could list the owner of TV Tokyo as "TV Tokyo Corporation".

This user has made yet another account named Redosign II which was blocked under Wild Kokochu for ignoring its warning on the Redosign talk page (or whatever it is, since you didn't give a reason in the summary), calling your username showing up in the block notice an "Energy X error" on its talk page (or at least, that's what I think he's saying). Maybe, we should a.) ask him which account he wants to keep and permanently block the 2 he doesn't want, while maintaining a 3 day block on the one he does want, or b.) block Redosign II as a sockpuppet and possibly extend the block on Wild Kokochu to a week. This has been going on for days now as I've been monitoring the recent wiki activity, and it's starting to get insane. PokémonGamer* 17:23, June 8, 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, the biography that was already written on the article states that JE020 reveals it, so I just posted it back and changed the source to that, since the biography stated to the contrary that JE020 confirms it and not JE011. If he referred to Chikorita as "she" only in the dub, that's dub-only confirmation. Japanese language has no gender pronouns, and it all depends on the character specifically calling the Pokémon a "girl" or whatever it is to confirm it through dialogue. I'm basing this on the Japanese version, as that's the original priority version for the genders. Also, as for Ash's Froakie, that's how its gender was only confirmed Male in the dub and the wording of Froakie being a "guy" is simply the word choice for the fansubs.

Oh, and SM030 is on air so I don't have much time to talk here. Though I will say these: The Legend of X, Y, and Z! should still be considered a special because the summaries such as TV Tokyo's overview advertised it as a special - which is what it is, regardless of if the dub mentions it as a normal episode. I don't think we should list opening themes in the template for episodes which were not dubbed or ones that did not even air in Japan, because the opening theme listing is dub-only and we don't list Japanese opening and ending themes there, and a dub song is inapplicable for any episode that was not even dubbed. Rumors that the episode was dubbed wouldn't count since the episode is not considered official in the dub and even if they say it's dubbed, it's likely they're misremembering as Dogasu's reasoning you can read up on Dogasu's Backpack states exactly why it's highly unlikely IL038 was dubbed. There's also the matter of inconsistencies between seasons as we list them on this wiki and the songs that are used in the dub, such as between Indigo League and Orange Islands when the first few OI episodes still used the Pokémon Theme song, so we cannot base it solely on the season it falls under. We also list the Japanese themes on the season pages anyway, so we shouldn't speculate in the infobox what the dub theme "might" be if it was dubbed, just to accept it was never dubbed and thus does not have an opening theme in the dub. PokémonGamer* 10:01, June 15, 2017 (UTC)
There's also the matter the Japanese version has an ending theme (ED), rather than just OP theme, which can be found on TV Tokyo's timetable and I can watch the episodes myself to find them, so that would need to be listed and apply to over 900+ pages as well if we were going to do that. Although I do think we can list English opening themes for future episodes that don't have dub titles or airing dates revealed because those episodes are expected to be dubbed anyway, unless proven otherwise. Bulbapedia doesn't list those unless they have a dub title or air date. PokémonGamer* 13:23, June 16, 2017 (UTC)

Sun and Moon anime characters pages

I'm talking about the human characters like Lillie, Mallow etc. Their biographies are getting outdated but since I'm not the one dealing this and these biographies are falling behind(I don't have much time to watch all past episodes), do you know what to do? Diana Lover (talk) 06:09, June 17, 2017 (UTC)Diana loverDiana Lover (talk) 06:09, June 17, 2017 (UTC)

Per everything you've said, I've changed the episode template to say the song is applicable only to the dub. Only the Japanese version has ending songs, as the English dub just throws in instrumental music and the crediting, so we need to list the Japanese opening to list the Japanese credits, and I have it so if nothing's listed in the new parameters, it'll say nothing about the Japanese songs, so we can add it to some pages without the others saying "N/A", making up for there having to be over 900+ articles to do this on, as there are also consistency issues on the Who's that Pokémon? segment images, which we only have for some articles, but we're missing all of them. There's also another issue: is there any confirmation or any official statement from the anime staff hinting Serena will return to Alola? One user says it's from a video, but there are videos on YouTube with titles saying things along the lines of "SERENA WILL RETURN TO ALOLA CONFIRMED OMG" but the evidence provided in the videos I've watched are fan speculation. Then, I found another one claiming it was from an official interview in a magazine claiming that they were using translations found online (presumably from Dephender on Serebii). But I need to know if you have a magazine scan link or any link to translations on Serebii forums claiming that Serena will return (with which I'll try to find the magazine scan myself and read the Japanese text to verify if it says Serena will/might return). If it's a magazine that says it, it's notable, but if it gets debunked, we'll remove it. If it's just translations people claim to hint it but might be sort of dubious in terms of whether it does confirm it, then maybe delete it from the trivia section and wait until official confirmation. If it does indeed make an appearance, we'll add it to Serena's anime overview.
(edit) And another thing, Bulbapedia is intentionally holding off on mentioning this because there is so much speculation surrounding it and no one has cited a legitimate source. If it's translated from posts on 2ch with no magazine cited or on karubiimunomono's twitter, we'll maybe remove it now until confirmed or denied as anyone can post on 2ch (as long as their IP says they're in Japan, like the IP I use on there).

Japanese seasons

If someone else adds it back, we can maybe lock the Serena anime article temporarily. And I have another question: the IL, OI, JE, AG, and DP episodes are all considered their own seasons individually in the Japanese version (Pocket Monsters Sekiei League, Pocket Monsters Orange Islands, Pocket Monsters Gold and Silver, Pocket Monsters Advanced Generation, Pocket Monsters Diamond and Pearl) - however BW and XY are different, as they separate the Japanese seasons differently from the dub's "20 seasons" thing (which I find more convenient for this wiki) that we use here. We should maybe mention or list somewhere the Japanese season organizing for BW/XY (as the whole series is not considered a single season in Japan for those), although I don't know if it would be trivial enough to include in the trivia section. The Japanese version separates episodes differently like this:

  • Pocket Monsters Best Wishes: BW001-BW086
  • Pocket Monsters Best Wishes - Season 2: BW087-BW110
  • Pocket Monsters Best Wishes - Season 2: Episode N: BW111-BW124
  • Pocket Monsters Best Wishes - Season 2: Decolora Adventure!: BW125-BW144
  • Pocket Monsters XY: XY001-XY093 (instead of the dub's XY and XY Kalos Quest)
  • Pocket Monsters XY&Z: XY094-XY140

PokémonGamer* 18:41, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, I was thinking about that. Maybe we can list under seasons, a section for the Japanese version, saying that the Japanese version divides them into those arcs, and list the episodes falling under the season as [first episode]-[last episode] like above. PokémonGamer* 18:53, June 18, 2017 (UTC)
Oh, and "Magikings" is also a correct translation, as Japanese has no plural indicators (other than words like "tachi") and the team is called コイキングズ per what I heard in the dialogue (with キングズ a transliteration from "kings"), so all that can be deduced is a combination of "Koiking" and "kings", so it is somewhat official. It's still going to have to be changed once a dub name is out. PokémonGamer* 02:01, June 19, 2017 (UTC)

Response to Edit

There isnt much of a reason: just edit when the new day begins. As for the other thing, i dont really know. CelsiusXS2 (talk)

First, I'll check segments such as Poké TV and Poké Question. Appearing in only either of those Japanese-only gag segments that are cut out of the episode on the Japanese Netflix/Amazon services, and in all non-Asian dubs of the Pokémon anime, is not good enough to list in the characters section. Bulbapedia does it, but we only do that if the character is featured in the episode itself, otherwise we may as well be finding ourself posting characters from the next episode preview, which is only notable on the next episode's page. If they appear in the episode however, I'll leave them there. PokémonGamer* 20:09, June 20, 2017 (UTC)
I rewatched the episode on Hulu's Japanese service and I also have ripped videos from someone else who also pays for the Japanese Hulu. Accordingly, Kukui appears in SM016 in this shot (I put a circle around it so you can see where in the image it is). PokémonGamer* 20:29, June 20, 2017 (UTC)
As for XY126, go ahead and remove it. DragonSpore18 doesn't watch the episodes, she uses the character listings from Bulbapedia without checking first, which have listed Carne as appearing before the episode even aired, because they were speculating that she was going to appear in every Kalos League episode. I still have a copy of the Japanese episode's TV Aichi broadcast, an affiliate channel of TV Tokyo, and I just rewatched a recorded MP4 rip of the episode's video from SOFCJ, there was absolutely no moment where she was shown, neither in the flashbacks, battling, and in the audience watching the battle. Additionally, no other fansites such as list the champion as appearing in that episode. So yeah, we should just go ahead and remove it. PokémonGamer* 21:40, June 20, 2017 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. And yeah, I remember telling you about me running for Content Mod on the talk page. Now, I'm focusing on getting rid of Bulbapedia images and renaming incorrectly named images. PokémonGamer* 22:30, June 20, 2017 (UTC)


I think we should put hover text over "機巧" saying 機巧. Unlike Japanese kana and English alphabet, kanji is not based on characters making sounds - rather, it's based on meaning (for example the kanji 水 means water so it would be read as みず [mizu], the Japanese word for water). For the kanji 機巧, that kanji combination usually ever stands for the word きこう (kikou), however doing it like this: 機巧 is a perfectly legitimate style of Japanese writing that is also used whenever the author of a certain work uses kanji and wants the reader, fan or whatever to pronounce it differently from its usual pronunciation. Even for people who have learned kanji, they wouldn't know 機巧 in the movie title means the word "karakuri" if there was no furigana over the kanji, and would normally assume it's pronounced "kikou". I know this wouldn't matter for the majority of users here who do not know anything about Japanese, but for those who come to the article, they might read 機巧 and assume it means "kikou" and the only way they'll know it actually means the word "karakuri" is if they have pre-existing knowledge of that. We're taking this from the point of view that people know nothing about the subject of the article and come to the article to collect the information about it, in other words they wouldn't know 機巧 means karakuri and not kikou unless we had the hover text on there. Bulbapedia does it too for that reason, and I think maybe we should put it in the opening paragraph (being their only method of knowing 機巧 is karakuri), otherwise we'd be telling readers that 機巧 means the word "kikou" which is not correct, and there's no context given to distinguish it from "kikou". The only reason why Japanese fans knew that 機巧 meant "karakuri" is because of the hiragana syllables からくり above it to remind them (which I'm proposing to use as hover text). PokémonGamer* 04:14, June 22, 2017 (UTC)

Also, I think it's notable enough to recognize to trivia if an episode airs in any non-Asian dub before the US. Non-Asian dubs are based on the English dub, and there are episodes that have aired in Italy in the Italian dub before the US, and the Italian dub is translated from the English dub, and therefore retains any English dub content (such as credits and WTP segment). Bulbapedia considers this notable to include in their trivia sections, as an episode will sometimes air in a dub that is based on the English dub content before the US. PokémonGamer* 04:34, June 22, 2017 (UTC)
On the anime pages for example, although I was thinking maybe in the opening paragraph. As for episode order, there was one episode initially skipped in Canada which is what caused multiple episodes to be shown in Canada a week before the US. Otherwise, if that dub aired in order in that country, we would just say "The (language) dub aired in (country), (this many) days before the United States". And that would go for all dubs outside of the Asian ones, which are dubbed retaining content from the original Japanese version (such as OP/ED animation, scenes, eyecatch, next episode preview, etc.). PokémonGamer* 09:44, June 22, 2017 (UTC)
Also, TV Tokyo puts up next episode previews seconds after they air on TV, so it's best to get previews from there as it's not a third party one that will be taken down for copyright. SM031 is set to air a minute from now, so this'll be it then I'm watching that. PokémonGamer* 09:54, June 22, 2017 (UTC)

Plot details for dub-banned scenes

If they don't have them already, I think you could write plot details for scenes that are banned in the dub for IL018: Beauty and the Beach (James' plan to enter into the beauty contest) and TB066: Snow Way Out! (Dogasu has described here what I'm talking about), as the plot of an episode is based on what happens in the original Japanese version. Just because the dub treats certain plot details as non-existent by cutting them out doesn't mean they're not officially apart of the story of the episode, and if there are any scenes that are cut from or added to the dub only, they can be noted under dub differences, and I'm not really good at wording full plot summaries. GS134: The Ice Cave! also needs plot corrections as well to split it up into multiple paragraphs with links as well a "short" overview added. PokémonGamer* 22:05, June 23, 2017 (UTC)

And like 機巧, I think it could also be mentioned in hover text whether "VS" (for example, VS or VS) in episode titles is pronounced たい or ブイエス on the episode articles because depending on what title it is, the word they use to pronounce "VS" varies - in XY096, they use "ブイエス" while in titles like XY031, they intend for it to be pronounced たい. For some of the episode titles, Amazon lists "tai" or "buiesu" in parentheses depending on how they want you to pronounce it when reading a specific episode's title. PokémonGamer* 22:20, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
As for the manga, VS in those titles are written and not pronounced. The episode title card narrations as well as some magazines that discuss upcoming anime episodes list whether it's pronounced "buiesu" or "tai" (although "tai" appears preferred by them, there's also "buiesu" they use in some titles as shown by title card narrations). There's no official source of pronunciation for the manga ones as far as I know, and as I have the videos for Japanese episodes on my hard drive I use for images (and I know how to obtain them without the sub release, also there being some of them on Hulu Japan which is a service I subscribe to and Indigo League ones on Netflix, whereas every old episode can be legally obtained through Amazon Prime Video's Japanese service), I can maybe research into this to see whether certain ones use "tai" and other ones that use "buiesu" for VS. PokémonGamer* 22:41, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
As for the supposed "death" of this Pokémon, it was not explicitly stated in the Japanese version that it died (dub doesn't count if the characters say it died when the dub airs, as it varies a lot from the Japanese version), so if you find anywhere on articles it says that Pokémon died, it can be removed, and Bulbapedia staff have said that it could've just disappeared. It's not confirmed that it died, contrary to common fan speculation garbage, which is possibly why certain users thought the episode would be banned, because they were assuming it died, and yes I did see the episode. I only heard from other users that they said "別れる" (but again, they don't know Japanese as I heard Nyarth say 回る in the song, I believe it's Meowth's Ballad), and that is a word meaning farewell that does not say the Pokémon died exactly. I don't know if the fansubs say it died, but if they do, I'll try to listen for the original line and I'll be able to tell what it says as fansubs are unofficial, third party and thus sometimes unreliable sources.

  • I think if a user is sockpuppeting to avoid a block, we should also extend the block length on their main account. Many wikis, such as Bulb, Wikia staff with how they handle global Wikia-wide blocks, Wikipedia, and several Wikia wikis such as the My Little Pony wiki, have a policy to extend the block length of anyone who is caught using a sockpuppet to avoid their block. They do this to convince blocked users not to create accounts to evade it, or otherwise it's going to be longer than their first block was.
  • I think we should translate XY136's title as "Zygarde Fights Back! The Last Ultimate Match of Kalos!!". By the way, there's no problem with the wording "final" or "battle", just a matter of word choice so those could probably stay as is. What I'm more pointing to is that the title uses the words 最終 and 決戦 for a reason. The one currently listed, which I assume is from Serebii, fails to translate both words (for example 決戦 means a "fierce", "ultimate", "decisive" battle or something along those lines, not just "battle", as with 激闘), which is why Bulbapedia staff make their own translations rather than using Serebii and not being able to read it to judge it enough to personally be able to translate it for themselves (in which case, this inaccuracy is a bit minor though a major reason they do this is because they have been hugely "iffy on translations" in the past (per this post on Bulb's forums), as with SM002). Another reason they don't use Serebii is being Serebii has asked them not to use his site as a source, which is why they can't consider Serebii a "reliable" source, because it's not a usable source there period, but they tend to take a grey area exception with using Serebii's translations if they're fact-checked.

PokémonGamer* 18:10, June 30, 2017 (UTC)

Although most of the time, they just sign out of the account and make a new one or do so through the create account form they can still access on one account (in which case autoblocking the IP for 24 hours and blocking account creation from one account is all we can do). So for the "you" thing, I've for a long time agreed to rewording parts of articles that contain the second-person "you" to be from a third-person viewpoint. Bulbapedia just considers second person off-limits, but allows first-person word usages like "we" or "us" (they write it like that in some articles, just not one-person self viewpoints like "I", "me", or any others). In which case, I'm going to try to reword the "you" in any articles I come across that contain it. PokémonGamer* 19:12, July 1, 2017 (UTC)
And if you see me removing existing lyrics and adding new lyrics for translations of song lyrics for the original version of the anime, that is because certain articles with lyric translations on them have them all copied from Bulbapedia, which according to Lordranged7 cannot be done, and knowing the language better, I can try interpreting it to translate myself. Likewise, I don't use the wording from fansubs either because they don't have quality guarantees (for example we romanize the usage of を as a particle as "o"), but if others who don't know Japanese want to add ones that aren't from Bulbapedia, those can be used I guess.
(EDIT:) Maybe you can tweet the next episode's preview on the wiki's Twitter? PokémonGamer* 19:35, July 1, 2017 (UTC)
There's a new comment on a section above, just to be noticed as it's not clearly put on the bottom of the page. PokémonGamer* 16:41, July 3, 2017 (UTC)

We've already notified this user that talk pages are not to be used to leave opinion comments - twice - but the user has persisted. The comment I just rolled back on the IL038 page is an example of one of these comments, just so you're aware. PokémonGamer* 02:43, July 4, 2017 (UTC)

Error in next episode preview

Wikiamem, who regularly goes in and finds errors, has pointed out that there's an error in the next episode preview for SM031 - the original version of that image was from the 次回予告 (next episode preview), and it contains an error where Suiren's swimsuit is the same color as her skin. I'm pretty sure this can be moved to the SM030 page, as next episode previews aren't just a commercial break or first airing only segment, they're actually apart of the episode itself at the end as seen by reruns on Kids Station, along with the Japanese services of Hulu, and Amazon Prime (though Netflix doesn't include them for unknown reasons), they are just given special promotion on TV Tokyo's and the Pokémon Company's YouTube channel the week before it airs as they are uploaded there though the previews are aired with narrations dubbed internationally in Korea, China, and other Asian dubs that are based on the Japanese version. Maybe we can place the error on the SM030 page and mention that the error was fixed in the actual episode itself, the preview being an actual post-credits episode segment? And unlike the thing with Tierno's Raichu's tail (which I found out at first when it was pointed out by a Japanese Twitter user), this isn't fixed on Hulu Japan - and I checked for myself, being a 933 yen monthly subscriber to that service. PokémonGamer* 18:08, July 4, 2017 (UTC)

Please let's just keep in mind that SM034 is not to be created until we have confirmation of it. It doesn't matter if Bulb or Serebii has it, it's still unconfirmed. PokémonGamer* 19:41, July 4, 2017 (UTC)
Edit: This scan supports it. Okay, I'm creating it. PokémonGamer* 19:42, July 4, 2017 (UTC)
For quotes, there is the issue that the original version and the English dub of the anime have different lines usually. Maybe our policy could be that quotes are supposed to reflect dub dialogue only? I can't possibly imagine how we would list Japanese version only quotes onto the wiki, maybe only do that on the Japanese wiki's episode pages. Even with translations for Japanese only episodes, I wouldn't take sub translations word-for-word as they unofficial and unreliable and have been shown to be riddled with various errors in the past (e.g., gender pronouns in mistranslation of Japanese gender-neutral pronouns), and it's inconsistent with other pages of episodes that have been dubbed, and we do have a Japanese Pocket Monsters wiki affiliate to put on that wiki's episode pages (of course, not translated, as the users using that wiki who speak Japanese as their native and only language won't understand what it's saying, but I know enough to transcribe dialogue from the line by listening to what line it is). PokémonGamer* 22:07, July 5, 2017 (UTC)


That previously-blocked troll who kept creating irrelevant pages for Spider and Iron Man (the former of which I helped delete off this wiki) has left a rude trolling comment saying that he can "bully you all he wants because the block has expired". You can check the history to see what he wrote. I already rolled it back. PokémonGamer* 22:22, July 5, 2017 (UTC)

That user is completely lurking here for attention. Blocking him for 2 weeks may be good for now. He's completely trolling by removing his talk page content and writing mean stuff about us on his user page. PokémonGamer* 22:37, July 5, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I reported it to them as well, so that's why. PokémonGamer* 09:22, July 6, 2017 (UTC)
As for the preview, because of the whole movie thing, I wonder if we'll see a preview. We didn't see a preview for the festival episode due to the movie event preview we saw on the Rotom episode's airing on TV Tokyo, though I should be able to find it on Hulu Japan because as it's very well known I subscribe to the service so I'll add any new Pokémon that appear there, and new episodes appear there within half an hour of its TV airing. Even then, I don't know how we'll get the video of it on the SM034 page, as Hulu Japan has a copy protection now so it's not like I can screen record it and upload it to YouTube myself unlisted. Copy protection there means I can view the episode but I can't take screenshots or video capturing of it. PokémonGamer* 10:14, July 6, 2017 (UTC)
Yup, the movie preview is on air after the Pose ending theme in the credits, where it features Satoshi, Pikachu, and the Ho-Oh. I also saw a Pochama in there, but it went by so fast I didn't pay attention to the other trainers. Preview will be on Hulu Japan and I'll let everyone know what I see in it as Hulu Japan shows the next episode previews as it's considered a normal episode segment to Hulu and Amazon, and Hulu Japan puts it up within half an hour of its airing. PokémonGamer* 10:23, July 6, 2017 (UTC)


This one can be tweeted on the wiki's Twitter page. I think we should tweet the previews from the official YouTube channels (namely, TV Tokyo's and The Pokémon Company's), regardless of the video titles and descriptions being in Japanese, because they are the official channels making it immune to being taken down for copyright reasons. Also, "second previews" so they don't cause confusion - they air on Sunday mornings on TX's program "Pokenchi" (Pokémon House) at 8:28-8:29 AM JST for the episode that will air that Thursday - so you can search "episode (whatever) second preview" after then and it should appear. Just letting you know so we can have those previews up like we have in the past - unlike the jikai yokoku (next episode) preview at the end of each episode, the Pokénchi previews aren't on any official YouTube channel so we need to have them survive until the Thursday of that week - just letting you know when those previews air because according to a Serebii moderator, "second preview is an idiotic term that should be avoided that is generally used by YouTube people [in the English speaking fandom only] that have no idea what the heck they're talking about. No one would ever think of asking if 'the Pokenchi preview' came out if people just called it by what it is. "Second preview" is misleading and confusing, and the preview from Pokenchi should work just the same as the preview that airs at the end of the episode - you KNOW where it comes from and when it airs, the preview from Pokenchi should work the same way." (I don't know exactly what he said, but that's when those non-main previews air (the Pokénchi ones), when they release on the Pokenchi program and we can post them on the wiki). PokémonGamer* 04:56, July 7, 2017 (UTC)

Apart from the reminder to tweet the preview and advice on putting the previews up on pages (when they become available, and which videos to use), I think we should change DP098's page name to remove the italic wiki coding from the page name. It doesn't display the italics correctly, may cause confusion on why that is in the page name, and we can easily use "DISPLAYTITLE", as seen here, and use that coding to display the italics on the page title to those viewing the page. Of course, I reverted that as that is merely suggested, not decided, so it won't display live on that page revision, just to ask this here.
Also, as for that character crying starting from around the 13 second time stamp, the character narration makes no mention of whatever character that may be, neither does the text onscreen on the official channel, neither do any of the magazine summaries we've received. The TV Tokyo listing for this episode, which mentions a summary and cast list, should release here on July 13th at 12:00 AM JST (which is pretty much July 12th where you, I, and most other users on the wiki live), so if it's a new character, it'll be mentioned there. And yeah, I use TV Tokyo's site. Serebii translates the cast and summaries from the site, but they delay the posting of translations by around 10-20 minutes, which is why I use the TV Tokyo site to obtain info from (as I can understand the page on their site). It's also what Bulbapedia uses to find voice actors, but no one here except for me ever uses it for voice actors. Then, I look up the voice actors to see if they have any known roles in other anime just in case, in which case I recognize Abareru-kun, Hiroki's actor, from Pokenchi, which airs its own Sunday previews of the week's Thursday episode. I'm just letting you know that the identity of the crying character is unknown. PokémonGamer* 06:06, July 7, 2017 (UTC)

New Movie

I tried to fix typos there :)

Also, shouldn't the characters from the new movie (Ash, Pikachu) have separate pages?

Mega Evolved Pokemon

Hey, Energy X, I got a question for you regarding the Mega Evolved Pokemon: do they count as the Third Evolved among the Pokemon evolution stages? -Chris Urena (talk) 02:28, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

Gender differences

I know you told me that it would be best to check all the Pokémon pages to verify which genders are confirmed and in which episode. Well, I think we should not consider a gender confirmed under the following circumstance (Bulbapedia also follows by this rule):

  • A gender cannot be considered confirmed if the Pokémon or one of its species already debuted in a previous episode of the anime prior to Generation IV, and no episode has aired yet in which gender differences were shown for that Pokémon species.

This is because it is possible that the Pokémon is a different gender, just that they didn't update the design to include gender differences. This was shown to be canon in The Ice Cave! (an episode that is considered banned outside of Japan and the rest of Asia, due to non-Asian dubs being redubbed versions based from the United States English dub, which skipped this episode), where the Rougela design was not shown changed. This is why Jessie's Wobbuffet's gender was not confirmed until "A Fork in the Path of Indecision!? Musashi and Sonansu!!", because both it and the Pokémon Wobbuffet appeared before Generation IV when gender differences were introduced and gender differences for that Pokémon were not proven to have their designs in the anime until the aforementioned episode. This is also an instance of anime=/=games, in which just because a certain generation's games has gender differences for a Pokémon does not mean they have updated it yet in the anime. Apart from the move Attract, the version used on the Japanese Hulu modified Raichu's Tail in XY126 to be female (as seen in the image I uploaded here, which was from the Japanese Hulu version that fixed Raichu's tail), but the TV broadcast of the episode and the dub did not feature gender differences, which is when determining gender differences that have not yet had the other gender's design shown in the anime had come back to haunt us later. Now, any Pikachu that appeared in any episode after the Dent and Takeshi special with the male tail for example can be considered male because that special showed the anime design for female Pikachu, proving that they have updated their anime designs for that Pokémon to comply with the existence of gender differences.

Well, I was asking because since Mega Evolution is the "evolution beyond evolution", I was thinking that maybe Mega Evolved Pokemon counted as a Fourth-Evolved stage in the evolutionary line of a Pokemon. -Chris Urena (talk) 12:40, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

Preview narrations

I think it could be noted in the trivia sections if someone other than Ash narrates the next episode preview narration dialogue, just as with how we list trivia if someone other than Ash narrates the title card. This is because as with title cards, it's usually Ash who narrates them (and I know Ash narrates the previews for the original series episodes, which is evident because I've seen them on the Japanese Hulu, which has the next episode previews in them), so in cases where it's not Ash or it's more characters other than just Ash provides the narration dialogue for them, it would be considered notable. An example of this is BW002, whose preview that is shown at the end of BW001 is narrated by both Ash and Iris, not just Ash (although BW002's preview was not shown at the end of BW001's first airing or promoted by TV Tokyo on its YouTube channel for the first airing because they were airing as a one hour special, though the preview for it is seen on Hulu, in reruns, Amazon Video, and DVD). If so, we'll note this on the page for the episode that the next episode preview is showing. Bulbapedia decides to mention preview narrator trivia on the page of the episode before it, because that's the episode that shows the preview after the credits and eyecatch segment, but listing it on the page of the episode being previewed is better for this wiki, especially as the preview shown at the end of IL037 was changed to IL039 after the IL038 incident (although Hulu Japan shows the IL038 preview that was only shown on initial broadcasts, because its versions are based on the first broadcasts).

I also added the ending credits theme for BW001/BW002 that Lordranged7 did not include - it's just that they were skipped on the first airing (the airing that pocketmonsters fansubs uses that is spread all over the internet), but they do exist within the episode. They are only used in reruns/DVD/Hulu/Amazon Prime (the Japanese services to be specific), because those are the standard version of the episode that is not a 1 hour special, so it's still official and apart of the episode even if it was skipped specifically for first airing, and subsequently the pocketmonsters fansubs version and the illegal third party videos online (which all come from the first airing). PokémonGamer* 02:58, July 14, 2017 (UTC)

So I watched the episode on Japanese Hulu, and even when the licensing rights for Hulu to stream the episode will expire soon there'll still be a rip of it - you're right - he doesn't appear, it can be removed. I didn't see him in the main episode. The only thing closest I can find is him appearing in the opening theme, which doesn't count. I even checked the Poké Question segment and the next episode preview segment that is shown at the end of the episode and he doesn't appear there (although I know those don't count, and I was trying to see if that was the case). None of the fan sites I saw listed him as appearing in the episode (including Bulbapedia), and it's likely that whoever added that confused him with Kukui or one of those Trainers. PokémonGamer* 20:14, July 14, 2017 (UTC)
Also, this scan I found announces a 21st movie set for 2018 which doesn't yet have a title. I'll type out what the scan says and translate it: 劇場版 最新作 - 2018年夏公開決定! - 劇場でまってよる! (my translation: It's been decided that the newest "Pokémon the Movie" is set to premiere in 2018! See it in theaters then!). I don't think this is enough information to support an article for, so I'll create one in my userspace (link: User:ThePokémonGamer/MS021). And no, you don't have to reply to this, I'm just letting you know what I'm doing and that when there's enough information, that's what should be moved to mainspace.

This user is a suspected sockpuppet of Slackjon001. PokémonGamer* 18:34, July 15, 2017 (UTC)

Hey, can I get a second opinion of what version of this image we should use? And no, the version Redosign is reverting to is not Sun & Moon, it's an XY image. PokémonGamer* 23:05, July 15, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, but that's definitely not a Sun & Moon image. Determining by the time that Kyurem uploaded that version he's reverting to, it was in 2015 so no, it's definitely from an XY episode, not a Sun & Moon episode like Redosign is insisting. PokémonGamer* 23:13, July 15, 2017 (UTC)
I've checked the SM001 episode and found a good updated image to use, so that's the version in use now. Also took the time to delete the previous versions as it was starting to get too long, and I've seen Lordranged7 do that in the past on XY086's template image where she deleted the old versions of that image because it was starting to get long. PokémonGamer* 23:26, July 15, 2017 (UTC)
As for that suspected sockpuppet, that user is a confirmed sockpuppet per new behavioral evidence. I have deleted the offending pages and images that user posted and have deleted the redirects for their vandalism offenses - and renaming pages to nonsense names is an offense known as "page-move vandalism" and I have also permanently admin-protected renaming for the Ash's Pikachu page because if he does come back, he may rename it and its associated talk page again and those pages shouldn't even ever be renamed anyway. PokémonGamer* 02:05, July 16, 2017 (UTC)

Post-series specials

I think we can list post-series specials under a sub-section of the articles for the seasons they fall under. This means BW post-series special 1, BW post-series special 2, XY post-series special 1, XY post-series special 2, and any other series that has post-series specials that have an opening and ending theme and treated the same as normal episodes except for the numbering and summaries considering it a special, such as DP. This is because "20 seasons" are a thing that only exist in the dub, and in the dub, according to the dub of the XYZ special (see this listing on the official site and per DVD), if and when TPCi dubs these, they will dub them as normal episodes in the dub only (given that the original Japanese counterparts have the OP and ED themes, and WTP intact, even if the Japanese version treats it as a special). We can maybe list a subsection like this: ===Post-series specials=== and list them all under a 2-episode table on the page for the final American season that falls under that series. Again, this is because the 20 seasons are how the dub decides to separate the whole anime, and due to these being treated as merely normal episodes in the dub rather than post-series specials, we can give them their separate sub-section under episodes. PokémonGamer* 05:11, July 16, 2017 (UTC)

Can we maybe have a page for Chota, the character that was set to appear in AG101 before it was decided to skip it? We put up pages for characters in upcoming episodes, and what we could do is say that the character appears in an episode was supposed to air as apart of Pokémon: Advanced Battle, but was later taken off the schedule. We already have a usable image of this character from the preview as while the episode's preview wasn't shown at the end of AG100 due to the decision to postpone AG101 being made shortly before AG100's airing, the episode's "next episode preview" (次回予告) was shown by Pokémon on Flets and the clips shown in the preview include perfectly good shots and the same goes for any of the Pokémon set to have an important role before it was postponed, and moves were shown in the preview to my knowledge. We also have information to support it, I have translated the whole Newtype synopsis and posted it here (had to translate myself as the previous one contained content that was copied from Bulbapedia's translation). The reason Bulbapedia doesn't have it is because they only consider a character notable if an episode in which the character appears has aired (and this applies to every episode, not just the postponed ones), but we have less strict notability requirements which is why we have separate pages for every minor character's Pokémon, so maybe we can have pages on the character (or Pokémon, if possible) even if Bulb doesn't? We won't list Future Content unless the episode ever gets an air date as an off to the side special (although I highly certainly doubt that would ever occur). We treat unaired episodes as being existent in the series listing them within the normal episode formatting by only listing all the info that was released to the public. PokémonGamer* 21:12, July 16, 2017 (UTC)

Spamming by posting "..."

I just saw SM034 air just now and I don't have much time here so I'll tell you this (I don't know if Serebii has this yet, but I don't use it as a source because I watch the episodes myself when they air), Kiawe's Turtonator used Dragon Tail and it was explicitly mentioned in the dialogue. PokémonGamer* 10:26, July 20, 2017 (UTC)

As for how Bulb claims that it used Shell Smash, I did not pay much attention to that so don't add it yet unless someone has downloaded and rewatched the episode for us, because it could maybe be a result of Bulb being an unreliable source, that or I didn't quite pay attention to the move being used. The only reason I'm telling you this is because I'm out of town and don't have much time to be going on this wiki. But yeah, I did hear Kaki's Bakugames use "ドラゴンテール" as it was explicitly called out in the dialogue. PokémonGamer* 10:32, July 20, 2017 (UTC)
