What happened?

It look so messed up. Ҝəυzø8 03:03, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

I was testing a new color theme thing and was waiting for the date to turn over to see if it worked right.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 12:56, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Linking error

The small category links on the top should link to Bulbanews categories, not to Bulbapedia categories. UltimateSephiroth 13:28, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Thanks for noticing though. If you see anymore, feel free to say so. tc²₆tc26 14:09, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
That was due to a use of {{color2}} where it should not be used.--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity* was here at 16:29, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Nice Work

Hey guys, I'm not sure who designed the new front page format but I must say nice work with it. I like the picture of Bulbasaur. It reminds me more of Bulbagardens now. WolfMan of Light 19:10, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! The majority of it was my changes, though tc26, Argy, and TTEchidna helped quite a bit. Anyways, the look has been there for almost a year now...--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity* was here at 23:55, 17 December 2009 (UTC)


Deoxys is not a pokemon avilable in the 2010 Championships!--The Bulb's Master 22:28, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

...where does it show that?--immewnitythemew 00:39, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

CoroCoro scans

Just wondering, are we allowed to take pictures from other websites? 'Cause I found a new scan from Legendary Pokémon.

Should someone getan article going about the new legendaries? Poisson14 17:00, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

We're working on it! :V Trust us, we know that the legendaries exist, and we'll try to get a news article up as soon as possible. Tina 17:04, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Oh, sorry about that. I'm not a frequent here. Poisson14 18:06, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Header linkage


Because the 'read more...' underneath the pictures does. Dion24 02:54, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

How come I can't edit articles?

'Cause according to here I can. — AxxonntheAwesometrainer 23:34, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

That's on the 'pedia. This is Bulbanews. User rights aren't global.--immewnitythemew 00:52, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Wait wait, I meant here. — AxxonntheAwesometrainer 20:33, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
...where? It doesn't specify anything that allows editing of articles in any groups you're in...--immewnitythemew 01:43, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
You need to be in the 'report' group to touch the mainspace. —darklordtrom 06:49, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Remove that redlink on top

Trom forgot to.--immewnitythemew 12:09, 2 August 2010 (UTC)


Why is there a "and [[{{{sourcelink2}}}|{{{sourcename2}}}]]" on every page I see? Turtwig A 01:21, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

I HAVE NO IDEA. *runs* —darklordtrom 10:49, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

"Events" Table

I don't know who fixes these things, or who to go to, but the "Current events" section needs updating, because the Legendary beast events are well and truly over. And the 7 eleven Pikachu.


Hey peepz I noticed that on the section where it says next on TV, well lets just say it's all wrong!!!!--KayKay|Chat to me! 09:59, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

News report

Can I submit a report about Pokémon: Galactic Battles airing date for Australia. I heard it from PokémonAus and I really want to write it because it would be my first article.--KayKay|Chat to me! 11:02, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, that's what Bulbanews is there for.--RexRacer 12:03, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
Your first article is mainspaced. However, do not copy and paste from any other website unless directly stated in the article. That is plagiarism. That is illegal. We don't need any more legal issues.--immewnitythemew 02:25, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
But I didn't, I wrote it by myself. I just went to the Foxtel website and checked Pokémon for the next 2 weeks and it came up with it, then I checked PokemonAus and it was there. Seriously there is no way to give me a growl.--KayKay|Chat to me! 08:32, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
And seriously, my age is under 15 so how would I know anything about that?--KayKay|Chat to me! 08:38, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
Calm down KK, take care of these things (which Imme mentioned above) next time :) ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 09:28, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
Okat then!--KayKay|Chat to me! 06:44, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Messed up?

Why the front page of the site is messed up? Kind of broken or something. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 12:42, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Along with that, kindly update the upcoming episode thing. Thanks ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 12:43, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Weird, we just fixed the an article that was causing problems earlier. Not sure what's causing this one. Jello 19:56, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
It's fixed. But I have no idea what was causing it. Jello 20:13, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Possibility of Pokémon Anime, Manga, and Games being banned in Japan

Okay, Here's the rundown: Recently, a law was passed in Japan that banned Anime, Manga, and Games for virtual depictions of crime and other stuff. However, it didn't ban real-life depictions of crime and other stuff.

Here's the link to the article revealing this:

This might need to be noted in the article, since there is a possibility that Pokémon might be affected. Weedle Mchairybug 13:24, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Go ahead and write a draft one. If it's deemed important enough (which it probably will), it will be published. --SnorlaxMonster 00:28, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
First off, don't plagiarize. Second, how is Pokémon a virtual crime? What was banned pertains to video game depictions of real-life crimes, i.e. Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, etc. Pokémon, on the other hand, is in a fully alternate universe wherein the action is not a crime - plus, last I checked, no kid has been arrested for having a tadpole squirt water at a plant.--immewnitythemew 22:10, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
First of all, I didn't plagiarize, I actually cited my sources. Logic would dictate that if I cited my sources, I would not have been plagiarizing, as I gave credit to the person who wrote the article in the first place. Second of all, the point of the article was about how anime was going to be banned for not only things relating to virtual depictions of crime and other things, but also for stuff like sex and all that, trying to eliminate pornography. Heck this is an ongoing controversy in even the Anime Forums of PokéFriends. Plus, it is overall similar to animal fighting, anyways, which is a crime.
Well, in any case, its deleted. If anyone else wants to give it a shot, be my guest. Weedle Mchairybug 13:39, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
The deletion was due to this being based upon speculation. And, how does PokeFriends make anything more important?--immewnitythemew 13:43, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Gamerbase Tournament Removal?

Heya, I was just wondering why my submitted article about the fifth PokémonWorld-PokéCharms-Gamerbase tournament was removed when it was still a developing story? Considering how the articles for the last few tournaments have been allowed on, and the other developing story "Unconfirmed: Pokémon Black and White Europen release date confirmed!" is still up there; despite the title being a contradiction, the article containing no text and having no reliable sources. If it's an advertising issue, I would have understand if not for the earlier tournaments having their articles published. Besides, they're not Wi-Fi Tournaments - their RL, and although they're unofficial tournaments, the last two have received prize support from Nintendo (the point in the article about the main prize not being 100% confirmed is because although Gamerbase have stated it as a prize, the webmaster of PokémonWorld can't remember getting any confirmation from Nintendo about getting a DSi XL for this tournament).

Best Wishes, March 5?

So I just heard on /vp/ that Best Wishes starts on March 5. I don't know the posters source, but some of you may want to dig into this if you haven't already.. Chum 01:08, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Specu-a-lation.--immewnitythemew 02:01, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Global Link Confirmed for the US

It's finally been confirmed. Bpc908 21:07, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Ash's Pikachu

Can someone update the template...Ash's Pikachu is available in the US until February 13th, not the 5th. --HoennMaster 21:06, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

A bit broken

I dunno if anyone else can see this, but the front page is a bit broken. I think it may have something to do with the Swedish Celebi event article. Because it is just appearing as coding, could it be the {{p|Celebi}} in the blurb? Dion24 01:08, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes, that was likely it, and I've fixed it. The front page will update again in about seven minutes, so hopefully it'll be fixed then. 梅子 03:09, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
