    Not what I meant. I have the video. I can make screenshots myself in the remaster's native 720p resolution.
    I can also confirm all of the animation changes that can only be seen in video form, like a more rapid flicker when Pikachu shocks people. So, back to my question... Screenshots: Yea or Nay?
    There's no problem if you take the screenshots yourself.

    Getting overhead maps of Gen V is not easy (and it will be even harder in Gen VI). I doubt someone will be able to.
    Sorry for quoting an old post, but does someone actually taken this image ingame or using a tool?

    The current version of that image is a crop from a print game guide.

    I'm sorry if this is in any way inappropriate, but I noticed an inconsistency that I must point out.

    According to the discussion on the Charizard page and Bulbasaur's, the policy is not to call a gender of a poke in the anime unless it is directly said. (I also assume by proxy in the case of relationships and Attract) I do not recall if the Gloom Bulbasaur was attracted to was female, and apparently, I cannot address the elephant in the room that is Charizard. Totodile, however, is perfectly fine with being called male for having an attraction to what is called a confirmed female pokemon. So are other pokemon. I'm sorry, but I cannot accept this hypocrisy. I know you don't want to start a big controversy, but either apply it to everything or reevaluate your policy. I will point out that Charla on her page is called female. I will accept that Bulba is perhaps unconfirmed due to the Gloom it was being attracted to does not have a stated gender. (same for Sceptile and Meganium) I will also mark that most of the gender controversy is old, the most recent being in 2010. (at least that I saw, if there was a more recent one or if it occurred in this forum sooner, I am unaware) My point is that there is no reason to deny the gender given the way Totodile is treated, unless you wish to alter that. I know of no other gender issues, but if I find them, I will point them out. I'm pretty sure that most of the companions' pokes are suitably ambiguous.

    It is just my computer, or Ninjask's Pokemon Emerald normal sprite was too big?

    Okay, two things,

    I was considering redirecting 'Paradise' to the Pokémon Paradise article, since most of the NPCs in-game just refer to it as Paradise. I'd normally go ahead with this sort of thing, but I'm guessing that this is one of those redirects where I would have to inquire first? In fact, I don't believe anyone in-game has specifically referred to it as 'Pokémon Paradise', it's always just been 'Paradise' if I'm correct.

    Second, the facilities that can be built in Paradise are being referred to simply as 'shops' on the wiki. But in-game, they are always called facilities. Shouldn't the wiki be calling them that too?

    IMO, Charizard should be considered male due to Charla, but it's not really my call. However, you are correct that either Charizard should be considered male, Totodile should be considered unconfirmed gender, or Charla should be considered unconfirmed gender.

    Um, hate to point it out, but while I was quoted, I don't see an actual response.

    The image was updated recently. Try clearing your cache and seeing if it still occurs.

    I don't have the game, but both suggestions sound fine. Nothing else seems to be easily confused with paradise so a redirect is fine; we should be using in-game terminology.

    Yeah, I think I was tired then and submitted without realizing I had only replied to one of the 3 posts.

    Just saying this is a server side issue and a similar issue is occurring with one of Jolteon's sprites, it should be fixed within the week

    Is there any plans to revive Featured articles? The last activity is from 2011 if I'm not mistaken.

    No, we're not really planning on doing those anymore.

    Hi, my name is Sheldon and I have been an avid fan of your column entitled On the Origin of Species, or at least I was until you stopped writing them. The last one I read was "Venipede, Whirlipede and Scolipede".

    Throughout each exciting article I have learned a lot not just about the origins of Pokémon, but also about many real life animals, plants and customs from around the world.

    With over 400 Pokémon and counting, it sure would be a shame to let this exciting and informative article die out and drift away like a Drifloon on the wind. And so, we come to the purpose of my letter. I, and all my friends, sure would appreciate it if you were to bring back this well written column and continue to delight and educate young and old people alike (and even those in between)!

    Please, PLEASE bring back On the Origins of Species and amaze us all once more!

    Yours in Pokémon Fandom,

    Sheldon
