That's a bit interesting that you mention that. Years ago, I also found that very unpractical to have one template just for those pages. When I did add the code, some people didn't like that, since these kind of templates were used on other pages before.

Before I do anything further, I must ask, this is all based on the flag on the template, right? Would changing the template from Infobox to, say, Data, remove the warning? Energy X 23:11, November 6, 2018 (UTC)

I see, I'll have to do something about it. There's also a small issue that has been bugging me for some time. Here is a template for character pages. The thing is that we have two parameters - one for the first game the character appeared in, and the other for other games they appeared in. I know there's some code that can actually merge these two, so there won't be any need for separate parameters. It's function is supposed to be like this:
...
|generationnum = I
|generationnum2 = [[Generation II|II]], [[Generation III|III]], [[Generation IV|IV]]
...
The generationnum parameter links to the page Generation I. I'd simplify the code:
|generationnum = I, II, III, IV
So now there's one parameter, and now I, II, III and IV are actually links to Generation I, II, III and IV pages.

It's somewhat unrelated, but I have your attention as a (portable) infobox coder. Energy X 23:37, November 6, 2018 (UTC)
