I was wondering are the listed catch rates for all games or the most recent generation? If it's the most recent only, then can we get some catch rates for all gens?

Catch rates usually aren't changed. If there was a change, then you just mouse over the asterisk next to the Pokemon here, and it tells you old rates.

I see Bulbapedia has an article on pokemon lawsuits against Nintendo, but we don't have an article for pokemon lawsuits started by Nintendo?

Because they don't have articles of their own. The page they are on shouldn't have a "personality and "characteristic" section because it isn't needed.

I was looking at the List of References to Pulseman. And while yes a lot of it is just speculation, there are some claims there that are just flat out wrong or misguided.

Namely, the claim that Charon was modeled after Dr. Waruyama from the game. And well, I really don't think they have that close of a resemblance...


There's also the claim that Xatu was modeled after an enemy from "Stage 2". And while I can confirm there is a similar-looking enemy in Pulseman, it's actually in Stage 1. I can't confirm the Remoraid though, and as much as I want to watch LPs of this, I can't because it'd just give me a seizure.

I know this is just nit-picking, but I don't believe I have my login information anymore to edit it myself.

Can you make a "retired" or "on hitaus" template? There users who either take a break from contributing or do not edit anymore.

Cosmic Power is listed as a variant of Bulk Up, but Defend Order is not. Is there a reason for this I have overlooked?

It only has 10 PP, and according to what the move variations page list it requires 15 or 20. I admittedly don't pay a lot of attention to move variations, too much if this then that.

A subthread search function would be nice. Especially so that way I could easily check whether someone has already made the same suggestion/comment I'm about to make so that I don't have to post the same comment again.

Also The Garden Grotto (Welcome and Rules) is cluttered with "Hello" threads. Would be nice if there was one thread for all greetings.
This already exists-you just select it from the search menu when viewing a thread.

But this thread is about the wiki, not the forum.

On Pinsir's (and presumably on Scyther and Scizor's) page, it says that Pinsir, Scyther, and Scizor are the only Pokémon legitimately available in every in-game Poké Ball variant. I believe this to be untrue, as Paras, Parasect, Venonat, and Venomoth are available in every in-game Poké Ball, unless there is a spin-off Poké Ball variant counted in this designation that I have overlooked.

The list of Poké Balls I used is:
Beast, Dive, Dream, Dusk, Fast, Friend, Great, Heal, Heavy, Level, Love, Lure, Luxury, Moon, Nest, Net, Poké, Premier, Quick, Repeat, Safari, Sport, Timer, Ultra.

Are you sure? I could swear that I've used the itemfinder and gotten one there myself.

Fixed the Pearl, several of our partners also didn't list it so I believe thats correct. Could always use someone to double check though. I've passed on the Canyon entrance note as well ^^
