    If you read up on the information on Ash's Gliscor, it states that it was given to McCann for training, but Ash later requested that he could have it for an upcoming battle against Paul in the Lily of the Valley conference. It has not been seen since, so it is not known whether it has been sent back to McCann, or deposited in Oak's Laboratory.
    oh thank you for clearing this up for me. im watching this season for the first time now and have not reached that point yet. should have waited to post this until i knew for sure.

    We prefer that people are welcomed by actual human beings, and not machines. It makes it seem more like a warm, friendly community.

    Hmm...

    I have always wondered about the use of APNG in Bulbapedia pages (specifically Pokémon information pages).

    I think if the wiki software can allow the addition of scripts in the beginning of the document, well...

    https://github.com/davidmz/apng-canvas

    Might want to take a look at this. It should enable APNGs in every single browser that at least supports the Canvas element. (That'd mean newer mobile and desktop WebKit-browsers and IE9+!)

    Not my area of expertise, but I think this should be looked into.

    I'm not a fan of our APNG usage, mostly because so many browsers lack support. This would be an excellent workaround if it proves viable.

    Ash's Tranquill - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

    There's a typo in the Personality & Characteristics section.

    Tranquill is also shown to be quite confiendent, as shown in A Venipede Stampede!, where she took no hesitation in trying to clear Castelia City from the group of Venipede.

    Hey I noticed that suddenly the advertisements on the pedia is more likely to be ugly spam than legitimate companies. I don't click on ads so it doesn't effect but it is bad for the site's reputation and it is a bit unsettling. Is it just me or did really happen can it change?

    If you come across an ad that you don't think should be there, you can report it in the Bad Ad Reporting Thread. Our ads still come from the same ad provider as far as I know, so I don't know why the types of ad would change.

    I don't know if this has happened to anyone else(or whether or not staff is aware of this), but lately when browsing Bulbapedia, I get 503 Service Unavailable errors.

    Hate. 503. Errors. Seriously, there are so many on Bulbapedia nowadays, whenever I refresh a page with a 503 error, it normally still says a 503 error. I can even get 503 errors by clicking the back button, when the page was working fine before (although the cache is purged regularly, which is probably the reason).

    Does this at all coincide with the fact that sometimes the forums take ages to load?

    It probably does. A 503 error occurs when the server is unable to provide the page for your browser. They normally appear during times of high load. Give it a minute or two and then try again. If you get a second one on the same page, give it longer. Sitting there and constantly refreshing until it loads will only cause further server load, which will exacerbate the problem, and make it occur more frequently.

    A metaphor to explain it for those that don't understand some of those terms. Imagine your job is to sit at a desk with a filing cabinet, and when someone asks you for a certain file, you find it, photocopy it and give them the copy. If a lot of people want files at once, a line forms. If the line gets very long, you might tell some of them that you're very busy at the moment and to come back a little later. That's the 503 error. If instead of coming back later they all decide to yell what they want at you, you can't hear what they want, and it starts to take longer for everyone. That's what happens if you just sit there refreshing the page until it loads.

    I noticed that it refers to Anorith as being similar to a mantis shrimp, but I'm pretty sure its actually based off of the Anomalocaris of the Burgess Shale (Anomalocaris - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). This bugged me, so I figured I'd see if I could get it changed.

    It didn't used to, so I'm pleased to see that it now does. Cool!
