And I would consider a mark to denote those names as uncertain sufficient to deter assumptions that that's the absolute right name.
    Random Redlinks because we already have a category that lists all the Wanted templates, as for the names, personally I find it better to have the templates there, if not only cause at least then the raw Japanese name is there for people who can read it. But we'll see what other staff say, or you can bring it up with one of the staff members on the pedia who frequently update those names.
    Ohh...I was only aware of the general Wanted Pages category, which has much more dross. It's still just a wash, at best, though.

    I'll see sometime if I can perhaps find one of those staff who deals with those names, then.

    Don't know if this has been mentioned, but I can't seem to add or remove pages from my watchlist by clicking the Watch/Unwatch button on a page. It always comes up with an error message.

    I suggest checking the other romanization templates, and seeing who has created them.

    I can watch and unwatch fine, make sure your browser is up to date, if there is still an issue, post what browser your using and i'll poke one of the techs.

    This has been happening to me as well. I can still manually delete them from "View and edit watchlist," however. I'm using Comodo Dragon (a variant of Chrome), which self-updates, but this only started about a week or two ago.

    Myself and four other staff members tested on a few different browsers. One had an issue on an outdated version of Chrome, otherwise everything tested fine. We try to get all our stuff to work with the three most widely used browsers as best we can (IE, Firefox and Chrome). Unfortunately we can't cater to absolutely everyone. HM, try updating to a current version, as for you Aviator, try insuring that Comodo is up to date.

    I have the same issue. The browser I'm using usually is Internet Explorer 9. My iPhone's Safari browser also gives error messages.

    I've got a small but annoying problem using the forums. When using the mobile site, if I'm looking at a list of threads like the xy section, I can only go straight to the first page of any thread. Pressing the blue arrow that's supposed to take me to the last page doesn't work, leaving me to have to then wait for the first page to load before then clicking on the last page number. Any help would be much appreciated :)

    I'm already using the latest version of Firefox. Don't know if this helps or not, but the problem started shortly after the website was unlocked a few weeks ago.

    Where did you get that image, if it's custom made then no, if you took it from another website then no, that's theft.
    I used the images that I just posted from Serebii and Marriland, respectively, just to use as examples for my suggestion. I never suggested we steal from other websites, just using examples in order to demonstrate that it's possible to have better images and icons for Generation VI Pokemon than the ones we have now. If those websites can generate those images, then so can Bulbapedia; we just need some people who are good with generating images and computers to provide those images for us (aka, not me, I'm very impaired when it comes to those things).
    It's a lot more complicated then that unfortunately, whereas in previous generations it was a simple task. We are well aware that the sprites have their own game models and menu sprites, we just can't access them. Getting the images would have been the first thing we'd done if we could, we just don't have the hardware to do it (not to mention the hardware is expensive, especially for a non-profit website).
    But we are still planning on getting them eventually, right?

    Yes, we are still planning to get them. We just need someone with the hardware to get the sprites/models from the game.

    Assuming we have them, will the images of the models replace the official artwork present in evolution tables?
    So far, I haven't seen any individual models uploaded, just screenshots of moves.

    No, we plan on keeping the artwork in the evobox even after the models have been uploaded.

    Sorry, one last inquiry. Will the XY models go in the main Sprites table, or something else? I'd like to see them along with the other 3D models in their own table on each Pokémon's page.

    Sorry for the late response, Wathog goes from 1 Attack to 2 Attack EVs B2/W2 onwards.
