    I created a custom template for you. Sorry, I meant to do this a while ago, but I kept getting distracted. Anyway, is there anything else you want added to it?

    It looks a lot better, thanks.

    I wonder if maybe the cards should be listed horizontally, three cards each at a time, if only to make the vertical scroll bar less longer. But I guess it would makes things messy. There's really nothing else I can think of, it looks great.

    By the way, can someone please help with translating Alakazam's and Dodrio's moves? I've managed to identify the moves for all of the other cards, just not their's.

    Edit: Also, how does the images work exactly in that template?

    Yeah, when you have a list, the page generally does get long, but that is to be expected. I think having multiple per line would get a bit confusing.

    Alakazam is using Reflect, Dodrio is using Tri Attack. When I don't know a Japanese move, I generally find the best way is to simply search its Japanese name on Bulbapedia. We have redirects in place for most moves. (It should be all pre-Gen V ones. The Gen V ones should have it too, but we haven't done them yet.)

    Edit: Also, how does the images work exactly in that template?
    That's the best thing about using a template - you don't even have to input the image name. As long as they are all uploaded to follow the naming convention "File:Bandai Carddass <Pokémon name>.jpg", the template will automatically put the images in.

    Huh, didn't know how I missed those.

    The problem with the images is that not all of them is "Bandai Carddass ____", nearly all of them (except Bulbasaur's and Cubone's) would have to be renamed. *Sigh* I guess I'm going to have to do that sometime.

    Oh, they're already uploaded? I didn't realise that. Only admins can move files, so I'll go fix that now.

    There's Bulbasaur to Arcanine only. Growlithe is also missing.

    Anyway, thanks again.

    There, back to the old naming convention of "File:Bandai <name> card.jpg".

    Someone needs to change the fourth movie villian's name. Pretty much every time he's mentioned, it's spelled as "Iron-Masked Marauder", when the movie uses "Iron Mask Marauder". There's no hyphen and there's no -ed.

    Also, my offer still stands to lend out my manga to anyone who can read Japanese and write articles on them.

    I have a idea for Pokemon pages. Maybe we could include some audio thing that says the name of the Pokemon so people know how to pronounce the name. This could be for both English and Japanese names. Or, this. Ex: Bulbasaur (BUL-BA-SAUR)
    My GPX+
    My 3DS FC is 5412-9933-2792.

    like my posts. It just annoys me.

    That reminds me.

    In the coding of the Pokemon info pages, it shows how to pronounce the Pokemon's name, but that thing is never shown on the actual public infobox. What's with that.

    Name pronunciations have never been consistent within the franchise. Colosseum does it one way, the anime does it another (sometimes more than one way in the anime), and various other times where the names were officially said. If there isn't a solid "correct" method, then we can't show it on the actual page.

    To add to what Nate said, they were displayed at one point. However there were too many arguments as to which pronounciation was "correct", so it was decided that they would be removed at the very least until all official sources can provide consistent pronounciations for all Pokemon.
    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.

    This is the section solely for Bulbapedia problems--but as for the forums posting multiple times: give it a second and just click it once. It knows when you've clicked it and might take a second to load.

    I wonder if I could suggest another article that I could userspace...

    "List of Pokemon alterted between Generations" or something like that. Several Pokemon, especially Generation II Pokemon, has received changes to their design over the course of generations. This can include things like Pikachu with white belly, or Vaporeon once having fins on its legs. People used to add these things as bits of trivia, which have been removed. A single article could be used to cover these alterations.
