Hello. I've got a problem that's quickly starting to get on my nerves.
https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/User:Jenkins92 keeps reverting my edits about Koharu, even when I told them to stop. My edits are more informative and accurate- they just think they're "cold hearted" or "horrid" and don't like them. I know edit warring is frowned upon, but I don't want to leave purposefully false information in Koharu's page. Could you talk to them and tell them to stop, please?
(I had a way better version of this, but my internet decided to screw me over at the worst point. Hooray)
Here are some of the edits in question:
- Could you revert Shocks rename of "GB009" and delete the new name? Ellis99 Volcanion 15:03, March 12, 2020 (UTC)
Question about help/ assistance
Hello. I've got a question/problem that I'd like to ask you about.
My question is, should I ask people for help/ assistance on fixing pages? For context, I've been fixing up DP's pages by deleting lines that were copied from Bulbapedia; as of now, I've fixed up more than a dozen, with way more to go. (If you want to learn more, I left a message on Energy X's page about it. I also gave Energy X the name of the suspected culprit behind the mass copying/ theft in the message, if that interests you.)
I ask because I'm just one person, and with the rate I'm going, it'll take me weeks to fix everything.
(Though... to be honest, I don't really know how to ask people for help. Leaving masses of requests on people's talk pages might rub them the wrong way; in fact, some people might even choose to spite me by copying more/ screwing up the pages on purpose, but I don't know.)
What should I do? Any advice? (I want to fix the pages, but I don't know if I can fix them all.)
I see. You've got a pretty good point there. I think I'll hold off on asking people for help, then. Like you said, people do have lives outside of the wiki. Asking them to devote a large amount of time just to help me wouldn't sit well with me in the long run, I think. Thank you for the advice, though!
By the way, I forgot to reply to your other message, so I'm sorry. Koharu's personality is aloof and cold towards others. She's not shy, no matter what Jenkins says- people don't have to be aloof and shy at the same time. (One isn't needed for both to exist at the same time, is what I'm trying to say.) To be honest, I don't think leaving him a message on his talk page would really work. I think it'd just cause trouble or make him upset or something.
Also, sort of unrelated, but I'm actually a really big fan of Koharu. It infuriates me whenever she receives hardly any attention in the anime; in fact, I'm positive that she'll have just a few minutes of screen time in the next episode and pull another disappearing act again for a long time. (I don't know if she isn't a main character, but if that's the case, they shouldn't have baited and lied to people by giving her such a prominent role in the anime's opening and first few episodes.)
Like, I don't know what they were thinking giving her a "focus" episode that really didn't focus on her that much, only to have her disappear for a literal month afterwards. (She didn't even show up in the Gengar episode, despite her being the one to beat it in a battle.)
Oh well. I guess we'll just see. (I'm rambling anyway, and I don't think anyone wants that.)
Thank you for blocking that vandal. I don't know why there's been so much of them recently, but it's starting to irritate me. If I didn't know better, I'd suspect that it's a secret group or something (though there is something called "Vandalguide wiki," but it looks like it's empty right now).
I also like that you blocked that vandal for two weeks instead of three days. Many of the other vandals here have only been blocked for three days, which seems like a really soft punishment to me (especially when considering the fact that more and more of them have been cropping up recently).
Thank you again!
That's a fair point. To be honest, though, I wasn't feeling the most focused at the time. (I'm still not right now, either.)
Also, I actually have been leaving messages on the talk pages of admins. I just didn't do it this time because I've been doing it so much recently (just look at all the messages I've sent to ThePokémonGamer and Energy X) and I keep thinking that people will get annoyed at me (silly, I know).
But, I don't know. I think I need a break for a few hours or something. (I feel like my message quality has shot down a bunch, so if it has, I'm sorry.)
Sorry again. Thank you for the advice, though.
First thing I saw when I woke up
Lego Master BB is still copying from Bulbapedia, even after he literally just got unblocked. I deleted this exact same line before for the exact same reason: https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Pokémon_Champion?diff=1209907&oldid=1209904
(here's the edit that proves he was the one who put it in: https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Pokémon_World_Championships?diff=prev&oldid=1218977)
I am losing my patience with him. He will not learn, no matter how many times you try to teach him. Why can't he understand that plagiarism is a form of theft and that there are literal laws against it?
(edit: he tried to lie to me about it https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/User_talk:Harper192812?diff=1218985&oldid=1218935)
(here's my message to him in response: https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/User_talk:Lego_Master_BB?diff=1218989&oldid=1218988)
I'm pretty sure that there's more in the page. He thinks that copying from Bulbapedia and rewording it a little suddenly makes it so that it isn't copied.
Also... https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/User_talk:Harper192812?diff=1218995&oldid=1218994 Not only that, but he ADMITTED to copying from Bulbapedia on my talk page again, even though he point-blank lied to my face about it earlier!
Pokémon World Championships
I didn't copied from Bulbapedia this time mam, as you know I'm well aware of my block due to copying the source but this time my edits is completely different. I didn't even use Bubalpedia for this edit and whatever Harper192812 He may didn't seem to understand the difference this time.
As you can know I show you a draft about the Pokémon World Championships in my own words remember? And you approved of my draft and say I add back the article too.
True the "Trainers wishing to enter the competition must do so online, and they must then participate in battles to ascend in its ranking system." phrase was from Bubalpedia, but Most of the edits of the article was in my own words, I didn't even realize that phrase myself plus I did most the edits about me watching the Pokémon (2019 anime series).
Do you seriously thinks I didn't learn anything form my Blocks? I been in this Wiki longer than Harper192812 has and nobody perfect you but I do my best for wiki and try so hard not break any rules! You told a lot of times and I hate being being blame for my almost all of my edits. I'm sorry if this may be true but I did my best this time like always for this wiki and sorry about it but I doing my best.

Promises to my best
I can only promises to do my best ok? like I said, nobody is perfect on anything, but they can do their best on trying to succeed, I know you know this but I can only promises to do my best and that's all i'm promising for because I hate being blocked every single time by you and the others and I know tou are doing job and I can respect that. So I do my best on trying to edit the wiki in my own words, that all I can promise to do, but thank you for the final chance.

Copying again, but not from Bulbapedia
Lego Master BB appears to be copying again. This time, however, he appears to be copying from Serebii https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Pokémon_Mystery_Dungeon_Rescue_Team_DX?diff=1219264&oldid=1219253
Lego Master BB's content was this:
An auto mode feature has been added that lets the player progress through their adventure more easily. The player and their team will move efficiently ind this mode. When an enemy comes close, auto mode will shut itself off.
Ordinarily, players would select from one of four moves to use on an enemy. When they aren’t sure which move to use, they can get the enemy right in front of them and they’ll automatically unleash the best move to use on that foe.
When players depart for a dungeon, they can have up to three members on their team but they can also add more Pokémon they encounter in a dungeon to their team and get up to eight teammates walking through a dungeon with them.
If the player are defeated in a dungeon, they can be rescued by other players or they can rescue themselves with another of theirown rescue teams. Being rescued allows them to restart their adventure from where you fainted.
While Serebii's content is this:
Auto mode: Starting with this title, an auto-mode feature has been added that lets players progress through their adventures more easily. By just pressing the L Button, the main character and their team will move efficiently. When a player approaches an enemy, auto mode will turn off automatically. Unleash moves automatically with the A Button: Ordinarily the player would select from one of four moves to use on an enemy. When players aren’t sure which move to use, they can get the enemy right in front of them and press the A Button to automatically unleash the best move to use on that foe. Up to eight Pokémon can travel with you: When Trainers depart for a dungeon, they can have three members on their team as usual, but in this title, they can also add Pokémon they encounter as they go through dungeons to get up to eight teammates walking through a dungeon with them. Fainting in a dungeon: If a player is defeated in a dungeon, they can ask for other players to rescue them, or they can rescue themselves with another of their own rescue teams. Then they’ll be able to resume their adventure from where they fainted.
Here are some comparisons for easier reading:

He's apparently still in the mindset of "if I change the words a little, it's not copying!" even though I already tried to talk to him about it before.
I was trying to add info on the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX game, with features and gameplay, I didn't copy from Bulbapedia, just to let you know but I did use the information from Pokémon.com. The information I put wasn't from Serebii I barely even know that website. Sorry about that but if going block me again for that, I have no excuse and accept any punishment for breaking the rules again.

Thank you for understanding and also for allowing me permission to use to official sites for info as well, but I'm still being careful not to copy from other sites. Have a great day.

Oh yeah, I see that. thanks for reminding me. still have a great day.

Mind helping Alan
Seeing he's asked Energy idk if he's busy but can you help him out?
- As seen i don't know why he's asked this but knowing it's for himself only he may have a great reason so as much as i want to ask can you help him out? Please and thank you!..Trainer Micah (talk) 16:27, March 25, 2020 (UTC)
User won't listen
https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Togepi_(DP142)?diff=prev&oldid=1219797 https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Jigglypuff_(anime)?diff=prev&oldid=1219786 https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Chinchou_(SM067)?diff=prev&oldid=1219780 https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Jessie%27s_Wobbuffet?diff=prev&oldid=1219772
They've been told repeatedly not to insert false information and maliciously edit pages, yet they still do it despite being blocked for it before. Seeing as how they still won't listen, I think another block is in order.
(Please and thank you)
I quit for now
Forget my previous message about Lego Master BB copying. I screwed up
Something's wrong with me. I think it's all the vandalism and the malicious edits
To make sure it gets noticed
I sent that message to ThePokémonGamer, but I think he's busy. Since you suggested for me to report stuff to you a few days ago, that's what I'm doing.
edit: he has a sockpuppet and is leaving insulting messages to Diana lover across multiple wikis
Ah, I forgot that. But I can understand it. It's totally fine. Our moderation team stands with me or any of the other moderator. We discussed everything regarding it and making a request application now. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 13:47, March 26, 2020 (UTC)
I sent that message to Energy X and ThePokémonGamer, but since I don't think they've seen it yet, I'll send it to you as well.
(They're a sockpuppet of https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/User:Uglypeoplesuck10, the user you just blocked.)
Oh. That's good, then.
Also... they've gotten past having two of their accounts globally blocked before. Just letting you know
Is there a way to counter IP addresses being changed? If something that's supposed to be global doesn't work all the time, what other options are there?
Yes. He is back for real.
Has AbuseFilter ever been tried here? (Or any other of those extensions?) If not, how effective would it be?
Thanks for helping out. It means a lot.
And he's back & Block request
Can my user page and so on be protected to? by the likes of v.

Bird Pokémon Category
Hey, Lord. I just linked the word "Pokémon" in Bird Pokémon category and the whole page vanished. Though, it is back now after a refresh, but can you please check it whether something has happened to that category? If yes, I'll revert my edit. Alan Sycamore! (talk) 14:51, March 28, 2020 (UTC)
Images/Pokémon Anime Images
I will mam. Also I you seen my recent edits in Pokémon articles, I decided to add more images of Pokémon in the anime section, about it different appearances in the anime so, that way, people see the Pokémon in their different looks, such as Gender, Mega Forms and Gigantamax forms too. Check Pikachu's Article , as you I put images how it appears in the anime, i also do same with articles. That way If help update the Pokémon article way better.
Lego Master BB, 12:00 P.M, March 28, 2020.
Thank you, I putting them in a slideshow. that way it won't take up space in the Pokémon article. I also add info on the Pokémon articles that appear in the anime as well, even if they don't belong to any trainers.
Lego Master BB, 12:28 P.M, March 28, 2020.
I have a dumb question
Sorry for asking this, but... is there a way to contact the ISP of the jerk that keeps sockpuppeting and sending nasty messages to people? I know it probably sounds stupid, but I'm 99% positive that what he's doing is illegal (I even saw him threatening to harass a person for the rest of their life on a different wiki). He needs to learn that he won't be able to escape forever and that he will have to pay for his actions. Nobody should get away for free.
Or, if it's not possible to contact the ISP ourselves, would asking Fandom staff to do it work? Because this is honestly way past the breaking point- in fact, I read a message on another wiki where it said he's been doing it since 2019. Not only that, but he's been on a lot more wikis than this one- who knows just how many people he's hurt? I know for a fact that he's harassed more people than just Diana lover (I've seen some of his messages, after all).
Reference Section Encounters
May I be an admin on this wiki i think I will be a good admin
Lego Master BB added an image to the Pikachu page https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Pikachu?diff=1225229&oldid=1225227 that is only in use on that specific page (it doesn't appear anywhere else, so I think he uploaded it himself). The image is visually identical to a picture on this https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Cosplay_Pikachu#In_the_anime Bulbapedia page, and it also has the exact same filename. Is there a way to check to see if it's stolen from Bulbapedia?
Here are the links to the wiki and Bulbapedia pages containing the images (note the identical filenames).
(Sorry if this is unneeded or something.)
Dumb question about Trivia
I have a dumb question. I'm debating whether or not to add some information to the Trivia section on the Stufful page, but I can't figure out if it feels like it's necessary enough, so I'd like your thoughts/ input. Here's what I'm thinking of adding:
The fact that Stufful is the basis of special moving toys and plushies that are popular with single women in the Pokémon universe is possibly the basis of a silly in-joke by Game Freak, as Olivia (a woman who is heavily implied to be a desperate Christmas cake), owns a ton of Stufful plushies in her house.
I also feel like it wouldn't sit well with people for some reason, but at the same time, I don't know. (I also thought about replacing the word silly with the word lewd, but I decided against it.)
What do you think? Should I add it or refrain?
(Sorry to bug you with such a dumb question)
Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution
Hey I was thinking about Mewtwo (MS022) and Mew (MS022). Do we need pages on them? I can't help but think, are they equivalent to Mewtwo (anime) and Mewtwo (anime)? Is Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution similar to Pokémon The First Movie - Mewtwo Strikes Back? Course they're a few changes, but technicalities. Think we should put them on Mewtwo (anime) and Mewtwo (anime)?--Kyurem147 (talk) 19:51, April 6, 2020 (UTC)
Just so it gets noticed
I sent that message to Energy X, but since he currently hasn't responded yet, I'm showing it to you. You did suggest for me to contact you more often before, if I remember right.
(Also, if me saying thank you is ever unneeded or something, let me know.)
(I meant to send that message to you, so pretend I didn't mess up)
Did I do everything right?
(I also looked at https://pokemon.fandom.com/wiki/Special:UnusedFiles to make sure that I wouldn't be uploading any duplicates)
Thank you! I added the picture
So it gets noticed
Here we go
Lego Master BB is apparently stealing again.
"Riolu's Pokémon Egg is a reference to the 10km Egg in Pokémon GO" is almost directly stolen from Bulbapedia's Trivia section on Ash's Riolu.
Here's Bulbapedia's content:
"Riolu's Egg is a reference to the 10 km Egg in Pokémon GO."
"Capture of a Generation IV Pokémon since Gible." is also stolen from Bulbapedia.
Here's Bulbapedia's content:
"Capture of a Generation IV Pokémon since Gible, 483 episodes earlier."
What do you think?
