Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

On episode credits it lists credits people for Screenplay. Is screenplay the same as writer and if so, that would mean there would be a different one for the English dub right?
The writer wrote the plot in a story-like text. The screenplay writers adapted it to a script.

Should the breeding tables on pages about moves (Ex. Focus Punch) be condensed as well? Should moves have subpages based on generations, much like Pokémon learnsets do?

We were thinking about doing that sometime in the future. I'll have to see about making a template revamp for it, though.

I think it only is when you're using a level ball.

Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

Ah. It always seemed to be easier if you were a higher level.

For instance, once you've beaten the game, and you have a high level pokemon in the front of your team, go throw pokeballs at the low level pokemon in the first routes. You'll catch without fail, but in the beginning, it's more difficult.

I could just be imagining it, though.

Yeah, only Level Balls take your Pokémon's level into account. When you are later in the game, you probably are more skilled, and it just feels easier. The formula on the page has been extracted from the games' code and has been tested thoroughly.

Suggestion concerning games such as Colosseum, Stadium, Gale of Darkness

I don't know if this has ever been brought up before but i found this website that has sprites of games such as Pokemon Colosseum, Pokemon Stadium and Gale of darkness, and like I said I don't know if this has ever been brought up but I think it would be a good idea to include those sprites in sections regarding trainers or other stuff of those said games (Colosseum, Gale of Darkness, Stadium)
Here's the link:

Thank You

We currently use these sprites on Bulbapedia. Though, the Pokémon have no been implemented and the trainers are found on their respective pages.

Really?? I never have seen them (Or perhaps I misunderstood you). Would you mind telling me where I can find them?
Also what I wanted to suggest is, for example: Pages such as those of Venus and Dakim and trainers from XD, Colosseum are using sprites from the Handheld game, I think it would be more appropriate to use sprites from colosseum/stadium. You get what I'm trying to say don't you??

Yes, though the template in question would have to be remade in order for such a change. Also, just go to any Colo/XD trainer page or the Gen. III PCs pages and it'll be there.

And would there be a problem in remading the template?? if not how can it be done?? I would like to help, where can I find these sprites though?

Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

Should we have a page detailing the lowest legal levels for all Pokémon? There's many cases where one might encounter a Pokémon that's at a lower level then it's supposed to evolve at.

I've been planning on making a page about that exact thing is my userspace for a while. I think it would be a good idea.

It doesn't matter much to me, but I think adding that to each Pokemon's infobox may be better than making a unique article.

Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

Lowest legal level for all of them is 1, except when legendaries, evolutions, and Ditto are concerned. It's little more than trivia, unlike the other stuff in the infobox.

I was planning on possibly eventually making a list of legal balls for the Pokémon to be in, but either way, if you're thinking something's hacked, the most likely way to see is to check where the Pokémon was met.

Well, I meant more for evolved stuff and legendaries. And it wouldn't belong in an infobox, I would think a "list of Pokémon by lowest possible level" or something similar.

Also, you forgot Unown.

Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

Can the countdown for Black and White's release be changed to fit the earlier European release?
