    I noticed something while surfing through some XY anime episodes. Particularly this one:

    XY035 - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

    In the episode's description of the battle between Froakie and Hawlucha, it states that Froakie used Cut at two different points. That's incorrect, as Froakie didn't have Cut until after Hawlucha joined the team (to be exact, Froakie learns cut in XY episode 038, three episodes later). It was actually Pound that Froakie used during that battle. Someone needs to fix that, please, as learning Cut is a plot-point for episode 38. Thanks in advance.

    I feel like the page for Poni Beach needs to be changed slightly. It says that this location only appears in USUM. This is only partially true. While the location "Poni Beach" only appears in USUM, that beach was there in SM, just as part of Poni Wilds.

    Forgive me for being off-topic, but when is the editing lock on Bulbapedia going to be lifted? I would really like to edit there again.

    Same. It's been a month since I posted my last request and nothing's changed.

    We're still missing a ton of Generation VI Trainer models. These include:

    -Archie's VS model (ORAS)
    -May and Brendan's VS models with Mega Bracelets (ORAS)
    -Zinnia's VS model (ORAS)
    -Team Flare Grunt VS models with alternate poses (XY)
    -Multiple Trainer overworld models

    These models are horrendously overdue. Please, someone add them already. We got the Generation VII models in no time, so why not these ones?

    PS. It's been almost two months and the year has changed, and we're still waiting for the site to be unlocked for editing again. I'm sorry I keep complaining about this here where these complaints don't belong to, but please! At least tell us how much longer you think it's going to take until all the issues have been solved!

    Is no one going to address when the editing lock is going to be lifted on Bulbapedia?

    This is just disrespectful. Each time someone willing to contribute for the betterment of Bulbapedia asks when the site will be unlocked, they are either ignored or get an answer along these lines: "It'll get unlocked when it gets unlocked". It seems the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia has little respect for its community.

    Bulbapedia was locked on November 8, 2017. It's been almost two months now. There is no page on the Battle Agency, the Alola Photo Club, and the Totem Stickers, and a quick look at the recent changes will tell you that there hasn't been much progress on the games' new features. For instance, the Ultra Warp Ride page was only created today.

    Is there an estimated date as to when the edit lock will be lifted? I have screenshots from Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! which I'd like to upload.

    Hey there Mikuri,
    Some of the issues have since been resolved, and we expect Bulbapedia to be re-opened for editing in the near future.

    Thank you. It makes me glad to hear that the issues are at least being worked on. The curiosity in me would also like to know what these issues exactly are, but you don't have to tell about them if you don't feel like it.

    If the day comes when you're able to give us a more precise date, could you be so kind and inform us about it?

    Yeah! Noticed that too! I'm so happy!

    But that doesn't change the fact that someone still has to upload the models I listed above...

    Trivia:
    Grimsley is the famed "Surfer in a kimono" and is most likely the surfer nicknamed "Big G" on the surfers' list. It's not stated outright, but a Swimmer NPC says something like "the surfer in a kimono said 'surfing on a mantine shouldn't be too different from surfing on a sharpedo', and went and surfed on the mantine just like that!"

    I don't know if this is word for word (I play a language that's not English) but the NPCs strongly hint at Grimsley being pretty famous on the beach.
