    is it just me or nobody is even caring about reading my articles?
    nobody is doing anything about this: Species - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia
    all the translation are all wrong

    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.

    Friendship dies and true love lies,
    night will fall and the dark will rise,
    when a good man goes to war.

    It would probably be better if that article included kana too (but if you are adding it, make sure it is actually kana and not the romaji you have up there).

    I'll give this some attention. I sometimes have trouble editing the longer pages though, so no promises.

    What I suggest is that we drop the column for Japanese Pokémon name, which isn't really necessary, and add a new column containing the kana version of the species name. This would also mean that I could check the literal translations as I added them.

    Not a bad idea, but we would then also need to swap the column the English species name is in with the new kana species column, to make sure that the kana species is next to the translated species.

    Also, based on your inability to edit long pages, I doubt you would be able to edit this one.

    After fixing up this page, I would also suggest putting the Japanese species in the Pokémon infobox too.

    For some reason, I seem to be able to at least preview edits to this page, which usually means I can save them too.

    And yeah, I'm switching around the columns so that it's the English name, then the kana, then the translation.
