Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea thread

I apologize if something like this has been suggested before, but what if a pokemon's formes and megas could be displayed through tabs, like how this other wiki does?

This could be used to show different artworks of a pokemon or trainer in different generations or styles, too. Furthermore, this could used for moves, to see how they're animated in different generations as opposed to putting all of that at the bottom of the page.
Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea thread



Those tabs require that all content within them load before they compress, it's not something reasonable to do with images as it only serves to increase the time it takes for the article to load and display correctly. Such issues would be extremely apparent in regards to move animations, as the files are quite large in size.

We would certainly like to be able to offer larger alternate form artwork/move images in the infoboxes, but we haven't been able to secure a method that doesn't come with larger hindrances than benefits. This is one of many factors as to why we recently applied the small thumbnails for alternate forms, in order to constantly supply the means to view the alternate forms.

I would like to resubmit this idea for consideration. I think the reason why it was turned down makes sense, and it would still make sense if the team turns it down for the same reason. But I figured 7 years later, as more and more formes are introduced, it wouldn't hurt to have it reconsidered. I've come across many other wikis making use of it, too.

The type I’d prefer the most is this one:E49D916B-3D72-4098-BA70-F6EA405C0D8A.png
The present system works fine, but becomes messy on some pages like Cosplay Pikachu, and would remove the problem of forms not getting enough focus, and some issues like Midday Lycanroc being treated as the “main” form when there’s no default form for the Lycanroc line.

there would have been 'who replied' section in each forum section. As an example : who and all how much replied in anime and manga section. Atleast top 20

I've always wondered why we've never included Game history/story information in Pokémon's species pages?

As in, a lot of Legendary/Mythical Pokémon story arcs are hardly even mentioned other than in other articles potentially. Such as, what Deoxys' role in Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire is, Rayquaza etc.

Even if it was in Game data. I know sometimes its quite spoiler heavy but its a vital bit of information about a species that is missing. This could be included in every species page with any story based information on the Pokémon (such as things like, Yamper appears under the ownership of Sonia but this isn't mentioned on the species page.

Just a thought.

@Oshakpop Sometimes there are "NPC appearances" listed at the top of the game data section. Also, why is the game data section last? Is it because it's always the longest.

@Nitro Indigo Yes but this is usually within side games. I mean things like, storylines of their appearances in the games such as with Zacian/Zamazenta and their involvement in the storylines etc. which isn't found on their pages.

I was told by another user this place can help out to understand:) so I thank you all
I have question about Pokémon strength I still don’t understand. Anime and game cannon

let’s say in anime Sparrow that refuses to evolved but proven to train amount of strength and speed vs Pidgeot that is very well trained to be considered the strongest and fastest Pidgeot in world can ever hope for

sparrow was trained good movesthat shown to have enough of its trained attributes against the Pidgeot
The sparrow wins but heavy breathing to be exhausted but wins the battle
Does that sparrow gets stronger after winning
