It is amazingly obvious when you copy directly from Bulbapedia. It's also amazingly illegal. Please don't do it again. thetrom 09:44, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Great job on the copypastes :D They make it much easier to find plagiarized work. Seriously, quit it. thetrom 00:42, October 22, 2009 (UTC)
Votaw, this is a serious matter. They are licensed under noncommerical. You can't copy from there. — Balistic 02:05, October 22, 2009 (UTC)
Please, refrain for copying a single word from Bulbapedia. You had been warned before, and you copied again. The next time you'll be blocked. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 07:21, October 22, 2009 (UTC)


Nice job with the categories. Cheers --Jargon ~ 23:40, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

Thank You for helping by putting more categories in the wiki User:Duskullbone


Hi, I just wanted to say thanks for renaming that Crogunk Festival Episode because now I can link it to the Episode Guide. It would really help if you could tell me how you rename pages so that I can link more Episodes - some I can't link due to incorrect naming. Thanks Hstar 16:01, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

Why don't you join Pokemon Teams? Go [[Pokemon Teams|here]] and [[User blog:Evanf/Pokemon Teams|here]] for more info. Thanks. Hope you join! - PTBot


Please, don't create stupid categories any more. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 20:47, March 14, 2011 (UTC)

Please don't make anymore of Ash's Pokemon's Galleries. Do it again and you will be banned.

You need to create episode templates when creating episode articles. Remember that.

TR vs. TP

Do you have any proof that TR vs. TP will air in Japan in October?

Well if you say so. They might relocate it to Nimbasa City.

Please do not keep adding categories to templates, many of them are unneeded and do not apply to the pages they are on or are already covered if the correct templates are on the page. An example of unneeded categories is your adding of Characters from Kanto to NavKantoEliteFour, that category is only for anime characters and is covered by the AnimeCharacter template, the same is to be said about the other region categories like it.  CrimsCrimsonnavy PokéBall.pngnnavy   C  S  08:42, August 29, 2011 (UTC)


I'll do it, yeah, but a "please" somewhere along those lines would be good. Also, please do not categorize trainer sprite articles as "Male Characters" or "Female Characters", as that is reserved for characters with their own articles, not a grouping into a Trainer Sprite page. And make sure to sign your messages with 4 tildes (~~~~) —   ChaosVoid  22:58,3/20/2012  

If you could include a grateful "please" or "thank you" message for your request, I'll gladly do it, but I'm not yours to order around to upload images. —   ChaosVoid  01:09,3/24/2012  

Re: Trainer sprites

I will if I find the time, I have been working on various lists, right now the List of Moves page, so it may be a few days from now.  CrimsCrimsonnavy PokéBall.pngnnavy   C  S  19:28, March 29, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Sprites

Even though I am the sprite guy (Sprite Uploader) pretty much, I don't take requests. Plus the website were i get my sprites from only provides Pokemon sprites. Maybe try to find those sprites here to see if they're uploaded ;) Aquatic Wartortle Surf! 21:42, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Please do not put fan-sprites on mainspace pages.HedgehogDude 21:34, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

Mega Pokémon

Don't insert those categories on those pages. While these Pokémon have a potentional to become Mega, they haven't been seen to become the Mega, so the category there is invalid. Energy X 23:57, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

true but it might happen--brandon votaw 17:57, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

Site redesign

A proposal to redesign the wiki is on the table. Please drop by w:c:czechitout to take a look at the new design, then return to the forum thread to give your views. Thanks :) — CzechOut 03:31, October 24, 2014 (UTC)

Good Job

On adding the template to the berry page, keep it up. Ellis99 CODE XANA 17:59, November 12, 2014 (UTC)


We don't do with gallery pages around here. Energy X 07:47, October 26, 2015 (UTC)


That was an unnecessary category you inserted. For why would we have something like that? Are these Pokémon separated by Pokédex Entries from games, forms or something else? Either way, it is just redundant category. Energy X 11:20, December 10, 2017 (UTC)


Please stop with the gibberish article adding. You added an article that has just one sentence. It does not even have proper layout - infoboxes, headlines and anything else. Energy X 12:06, February 15, 2018 (UTC)
