Message

On the home page for this wiki, it says that this wiki si the best Pokemon resource on the net. Is this true? Wouldn't the Pokemon website be the best Pokemon resource on the net?

Also, the Pokemon news on the home page is a little out-dated.

I uploaded them in advance so they could be added to articles since there's a lot I still need to upload. I can add them now to clear them from that list if needed. PokémonGamer* 14:21, June 18, 2020 (UTC)

What was that for?!

I had already uploaded an image for Gardenia (anime), and you had the nerve to delete it?! All I have been trying to do is help this wiki and this is what you done to that page. I am starting to believe you do not want any images there at all. Sonic2479Talk 3:54 pm, June 27, 2020 (UTC)

Are you happy?!

I had uploaded an image from fanpop. Happy now? Sonic2479 (Talk) 4:17 pm, June 27, 2020 (UTC)

Ok, I don't what he did to the last image there. this website.--Sonic2479 (talk) 4:50, June 27, 2020 (UTC)

User

Could you deal with this user, they are making pointless articles. Ellis99 Volcanion 21:40, June 27, 2020 (UTC)

I know, I was a bit busy and you could deal with them before they do something else. Ellis99 Volcanion 09:22, July 3, 2020 (UTC)

Pokemon list on playable characters

I noticed on a bunch of the playable characters' pages that in the section for their Pokemon. It shows Pokemon they might not even have caught which is misinformation and should only include the Pokemon that are confirmed such as the starter Pokemon and etc. ZaltoraWizard (talk) 09:14, July 1, 2020 (UTC) ZaltoraWizard

That's right. I almost forgot. I saw it and only thought of as the player not the rival. Could it be possible to just write a little note before them saying that they're as the rival not the player. It might limit other users' confusions if they have any, but that's just me.

New User Infobox

I tried creating a new infobox for users that is similar to the Character and Anime characters' infobox, but for users and without the direct link to a category like the region or something. Is there a way to do that without having to accidentally add unnecessary categories to the page? ZaltoraWizard (talk) 08:16, July 2, 2020 (UTC) ZaltoraWizard

Never mind. It was a false alarm. ZaltoraWizard (talk) 08:59, July 2, 2020 (UTC) ZaltoraWizard
Except for the fact that it has the standard, uninteresting questions I was trying to avoid. Why did you delete it when there's another one that I know of for users besides the one you suggested? Would it be possible to edit that to what I had? I know it isnt necessary and there's already stuff on there, but it would certainly liven things up for the user(s) that use them. Thanks for letting me know about my characters gallery. I have another account besides this one and must have gotten the two mixed up. ZaltoraWizard (talk) 12:17, July 2, 2020 (UTC) ZaltoraWizard

Request.

Hey Lord, sorry to disturb you with this message, but I'm not going to take a step without your support. I've to do a few things here:

1. To add the new username colors for Discussion Moderators and Bureaucrats (Colors for Rollbacks, Admins and CMods are there already. The Discussions Moderator role was added in around the year 2015 and nobody bothered to add a new username color for them. Our Bureaucrats should have a separate name color to that of Admins, since they are Senior Admins).

2. To change the template for recent changes page and add some more useful links and give a new style (I'm thinking on it, won't do it anytime soon).

3. To ask the wiki manager to demote the following inactive users and bots of the wiki to make space for new aspirants (this point is like voting, if I get your support, I'll reach to them and ask for the help).

DoorkBot, Micah's bot, CoreyBot, Jellochuu II, Saiftey, QATestsBot, YogsBot, Not The User We Are Looking For, and CzechBot.

There are a few more things I've decided to do, I'll ask for them later. Thank you! Alan Sycamore! (talk) 09:02, July 4, 2020 (UTC)

Farfetch'd

Ca you rename the Ash Farfetch'd Night Slash.png image and change it to the Ash Farfetch'd Brutal Swing.png image, please? And add images of both Goh and Ash's Farfetch'd using Night Slash? DragonSpore18 (talk) 19:56 July 5, 2020 (UTC)

I Choose You (movie)

The only reason I added the plot from bulbapedia was because the entire plot was cut all the way down to when Marshadow controlled Ash's dream about a world without Pokémon.

Reply.

Hey Lord, thank you very much for your input and I'm sorry I'm late in replying. Ellis, You, Energy, Alex and I have agreed to their demotion. Could you please demote the users from their current position? Trainer Micah has asked me to not demote his other account from the bot status. What do you say on it? Should we let him have the bot account? He says he will help whenever he gets free time. Also, I won't hide it but I'm thinking of every way to bring some good changes to our wiki. I'm thinking of making a proposal on them (definitely not today, someday else). Is it okay? And yeah, I understand your reasoning on that username colors request. I predicted this reasoning before and I don't have a good reply to it and since no one agreed to this proposal, I'll not do it. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 11:31, July 10, 2020 (UTC)

Hey Lord, thank you for demoting the users. Yes, Micah is active. He can still run his bot. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 01:34, July 11, 2020 (UTC)

New and old pages

I noticed there are things that don't have pages on this wiki, but should such as the Player's house, the Poke Ball seals and maybe the capsules from Sinnoh Pokemon Contests, and etc. In addition to that, there are a large number of pages with the Stubs template and don't include any more information. On the Pokemon Ranger page, there is nothing about Pokemon Rangers such as capturing them, information from the anime and etc. that really should be added to the page. I would do that myself, but it isn't exactly my strong suit plus it requires images and etc. ZaltoraWizard (talk) 05:58, July 11, 2020 (UTC) ZaltoraWizard

Ask for anything.

Hey Lord, we recently have decided to bring a new concept to our wiki discussions. The Ask Me Anything post. A post where a featured staff member or user will be asked trivial and fun questions by the community. Of course, the featured user reserves the right to refuse reply to any question they deem unreasonable by saying "I pass on your question" or something similar. We have decided to do it on weekly basis. Would like to ask you if you'd want to be featured someday? Alan Sycamore! (talk) 10:31, July 11, 2020 (UTC)

Parametre Layout

After a conversation with X about parametres, the layout of parametres in use on pages is to be simplified. The examples are below:

Before
{{AnimeLocation
|locationname = (Name of the location)
|japanesename = (Japanese name, in Katakana and Romaji, of the location)
|image = (Image of the location)
|region = (Region of the location)
|debut = (First appearance of the location)
}}
After
{{AnimeLocation
|locationname = (Name of the location)
|japanesename = (Japanese name, in Katakana and Romaji, of the location)
|image        = (Image of the location)
|region       = (Region of the location)
|debut        = (First appearance of the location)
}}

This layout will apply to all infobox temps. and the TCG temp. on card pages. Ellis99 Volcanion 12:20, July 11, 2020 (UTC)

WTP images - The Beginning

Could you rename the WTP images to the standard of the other images of WTP please, thanks. Ellis99 Volcanion 15:12, July 25, 2020 (UTC)

Could you do a mass rename of the WTP images? The names of them need standardising and they should be according to "before" (the shadow of the Pokémon) and "after" (once the Pokémon has been unveiled). It might take some time. To see what I mean, look at the PJ eps. WTP image names. Ellis99 Volcanion 07:55, July 26, 2020 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I busy, but I understand for the possible delay. To me, I find that it is a waste of time renaming because they are going to be replaced anyway by Alex or Serecola, as they can upload high quality images. Ellis99 Volcanion 09:59, July 26, 2020 (UTC)
Also, I'm not the one who was bothered about renaming the images to the new code, that was X. Ellis99 Volcanion 10:02, July 26, 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, read it as if you were referring to what you were doing to me being the one who asked you to rename the images you're rename. How does Mass Rename work anyway? Ellis99 Volcanion 10:10, July 26, 2020 (UTC)
Yep, just checked. I understand where you're coming from. Ellis99 Volcanion 11:40, July 26, 2020 (UTC)
To add, Misch has the power to Mass Rename too. He might be able to help you too. Ellis99 Volcanion 11:41, July 26, 2020 (UTC)

User Rights Request

There is a new request for user rights. To see, click here. Ellis99 Volcanion 17:31, July 26, 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't realise. The reason why I post the message to users is because, an I'm assuming, most users don't usually look at the page. Alan has made plans for new rules on the requests. I'll ask him when he plans to make a forum post on the subject, so thecommunity here has an input on the proposals. Ellis99 Volcanion 19:21, July 26, 2020 (UTC)

I have been thinking that in the PokéBox templates, the DW abilities should be listed as hidden abilities instead. The Dream World only existed in Gen V, so all those introduced after that generation have nothing similar. JCDragon2819 (talk) 05:17, July 31, 2020 (UTC)

New concept.

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

Additionally, those who have made a fairly high number of reports, and have substantial activity in the wiki discussions or wiki content area will receive a "Featured Member" tag.

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

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

Additionally, I would like to make two pages. The first page is to have the above new ideas for record keeping purposes as well as letting users view the details conveniently. The second page is to have the contest winners' names recorded in a "Hall of Fame" page. I hope these are not too much to ask for. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 15:38, August 8, 2020 (UTC)

Guidelines

Hi Lord i know i don't want to editor the Guidelines but i know i am suppose to come to you to see if you can editor them so...

I just came off of Queries post and i see someone wants me to ban Rant posts in discussions and i know you don't really come and go on there. But hear me out if you will..
Can you make anew rule for everyone to abide by?
The Rule is as i state it:
Users are not to reply any rants in a post in rascalism or cause any sort of drama in a post if seen a moderator will delete it. And a warning will be sent to a user in reply or talk page. If He/she doesn't abide by the rules the user will be blocked by a administrator...
Is this alright? Reason Gotttem via this user: https://pokemon.fandom.com/f/u/45182395
Caused drama in a post and to make sure i enforce the rules corretly. I will delete the post in return i also warned him in doing so will also ban Rent posts for the time being if alright with you? here is the post: ...-https://pokemon.fandom.com/f/p/4400000000000075348

Goh's Golurk

Can you rename the image of Goh's Golurk supposedly using Mega Punch into using Hammer Arm please? DragonSpore18 (talk) 07:26 September 21, 2020 (UTC)

Variants

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

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

Seeing as someone else went into the account and made some mess, the best advice now I can offer is to simply change the password. Energy X 08:28, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Reply and Apology message

I noticed the reply message and oh! of course that is fine! The user actually caused quite a uproar yesterday i myself tried to reply and delete some of your post's before Sly got on but due to that hacker i couldn't. And yes i was upset at the hacker who got onto your account and blocked me while you were away asleep so yes tried to editor but due to the hacker i couldn't, So thank you for coming clear on that! And let's hope it doesn't happen again in the future?.


If it does well this "hacker" more likely a "hater in human" in guessing? will be the one who's blocked, So whoever got your password let it be of these posts called Jacked or whatever?- https://pokemon.fandom.com/f/p/4400000000001268554 <- these one's won't happen again. So even though deleted let this be a lesson to us all for every action they'll be a reaction that will follow it even if the user mod etc as a hacker of sorts or not in real life there are danger's if not careful okay?


But so you know it was crazy yesterday due to that hacker so yeah this letitburn#1674 idk who that is/was? But the user'll know hack someone's account or accounts your surely be asking for consequences even if we're asleep so yeah reather here discussions or discord consequences will happen or follow.


Even if your a hacker or not alright Lord? But so you know quite a uproar in chaos that hacker caused so let be a lesson for us all okay! So you know and chat later also apology accepted as long as it doesn't happen again okay?

Later i gotta get ready for work...-Trainer Micah 2 (talk) 12:38, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

Mass Edit

Just to inform you that you can use the Mass Edit script on the toolbar. It should at least make categorization of images much easier. Energy X 21:13, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

Community Council invitation

Hello! I'm a Wiki Manager and I have an invitation for you, Fandom would like to invite you to the Community Council.

The Community Council is Fandom's private product testing and feedback group. Members are Fandom and Gamepedia users who have been selected by Staff to provide preliminary feedback and user testing on new features that are under development. They’re often asked about new features, the way to develop them, the future of Fandom and policy initiatives.

Being a Councilor is one of the most trusted positions a Fandom or Gamepedia editor can hold. That’s why all Councilors sign a NDA to protect information that is shared. If you would like to accept the invitation, I will give you a NDA to sign and send back to me (if you’re under 18, a parent or guardian has to sign it for you).

The main place where feedback is given is the Community Council Wiki only available to Councilors, but there’s also a Slack channel you can join. To join the special Slack channel you need to be at least 16 years old, but being on the Slack channel is not a requirement.

Please let me know if you would like to accept the invitation. If you have more questions about Community Council, please let me know and I’ll answer everything. I also know the answer to this can contain sensitive information like your age, so feel free to email me kstachowiak@fandom.com with your response.

Ash Ketchum

Somebody has removed most of Ash's Pokémon the page Ash Ketchum.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Drake Gunderson (talkcontribs)

Edit

Just mind that the other last two tabs take info from the third tab if not specified. Thus, Electabuzz has to have defined "|2-ability = Static" because it does not have Motor Drive as an ability (as Electivire does).

Also, I would like to point out that we should list all the moves a Pokémon used in a stage, like done on Goh's Cinderace page (just place a note when it first used that move in that stage). Energy X 13:30, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

...I guess we should use evolve_in for the episode it evolved in or say "Prior to episode X", I'll look into the template and see if it needs to be changed for that. Probably for the best to focus on main character Pokémon's pages, for now. Energy X 13:39, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

Template

I've fixed that movebox template. The only downside is that moves and images should be arraged as it is by the infobox: the ones without number (move, img) refers to the current stage, while the other forms (2-move, 3-img) would then refer to previous stages. To be fair, as much as I don't like this to be changed much, it was the simplest way to do, even the template is much smaller and compact. Energy X 00:10, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

Your approval

Due to some very personal reasons (which I would be able to explain on some private chatting site/application), I have decided to close this account of mine and set a new starting as an admin of pokémon wiki. I would need your approval before taking any such step. I will take a break of 2-3 months and return back on a new account. Forconfirmation, Discussions Moderator User:Gary_Oakkk will do it. Alan Sycamore! (Contact) • (Contributions) 03:52, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

Adventures images

I've run into a conflict with the images. It's not just that I think it's a bit hard to categorize the images (to remember the volume of where an image is taken from), but now with the X & Y mini-volumes being published as full volumes, I just think it would be easiest to just use categories like "X & Y chapter images". It also has to do something with the fact that colorized images of Pokémon can also be shown in full and mini volumes - all of which makes our current categorization system very hard to handle. Do you think that's a good idea to execute? Current images can be recategorized with a bot, so we don't have to do it manually. Energy X 21:33, 27 January 2021 (UTC)
