Because, despite being main characters in the anime, they were GLs first. And their articles were huge because of it.

    That's the reason for their split (not before it was complained that then, all the other parts of their articles would have to be split, such as from the manga section). Not only were they prominent characters, but because the articles themselves were just unnecessarily too big.

    Big articles, slower load time (not only for viewing, but editing). This is my point.

    Ok TTEchidna, I don't know why you put this there since no one can answer on the site. In response to you comment on Suzuran Island. Yes, it is most likely that it is the island from the games, but since the games don't mention it I don't think we can really put it on the site....but it's up to you guys.

    Edit in sections. Those articles aren't big at all. 35,000 bytes, psh. Longest move page is Hyper Beam, and it doesn't hold a candle to the longest page, Contest combination.

    As for Brock and Misty, there's a difference there. There aren't 467 Gym Leaders, all equally featured and able to be assembled in teams of 4. Brock and Misty are the exception, not the rule, and like May and Dawn's game pages don't have all their anime info, Brock and Misty's shouldn't have either.

    We can't just split off articles if they get big. There has to be a good reason to. We're not going to split the list of Pokémon by National Pokédex number next, are we? It's "too long", with around 150 Pokémon rumored to be in the works for Gen V, putting us at 643. Takes a while to load, too. It'll be about the size of Thunderbolt this time next year.

    Anyway, take a look at the prettyful entry I made for the pages to revamp them. I'll be asking for a vote: 5, 4, 3, or 2 columns.

    Of the ones you've got up, I prefer four columns. Five columns would probably look too squashed, esecially for those people who don't have widescreen displays, while fewer columns makes it look too inflated and stretched.

    While the border around the name does look a little weird, I agree that it can be difficult to see the bold with white text, so it needs something other than the bold. My only other idea for that would be to put the border around the relevant type, but that would also look weird, not to mention being rather difficult to do. (although personally I don't think it's that hard to tell when a move has STAB, especially now that the background is the move's type's colour, and the types of the Pokémon are coloured too. Do they even need to stand out that much?)

    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    I love it (even the circling for STAB). Not sure about the column though I'd usually only be able to see one anyways. Just a reminder that we use the moveentry template other places we need a |Number|MS|Name|Type(s)| table so we might have to replace certain uses of it...

    I just want to check this but I am pretty sure cross-chop can affect pokemon in the semi-invulnerable turn of fly, at least in the gen-IV games. This isn't mentioned either Here or Here. I just wanted to make sure this was the case before editing the pages when editing becomes available again.

    Are you sure it isn't just being used by a Pokemon with No Guard? That allows hits during the invulnerable turn of moves like Fly.

    I guess this goes here.

    Ice Cream Syndome (movie 13 ending theme(JP)) is out, I just noticed that 3 hours ago, then I started romanizing (first time) it, basically find the lyrics (which is pretty hard to find), and throw it to romaji.org, and correct them, and use {{tt}} to surround them all. 2:30 later, I found out that page edit is not allowed now...

    I am not sure if this will work. I am not good at the code.. I just grabbed the source of "ONE" and change the content.

    Hi, for pages such as Sudowoodo in the Trivia, it notes how it weighs the same as Lucas while when I see Latias' trivia it doesn't note it's similar weight to Ethan? Is there something more to this or that you aren't doing this kind of trivia any more?

    HGSS has been out for three months in the US and other territories who use Bulbagarden as their source for information and news. Three months, two of which we've unfortunately had to have the wiki locked down for, due to traffic and glitches. We haven't had a chance to set up trivia about Ethan and Lyra's weights being the same as that of Pokémon, because we've been bogged down in the important English updates, site style updates, and Black and White updates. Trivia can come later.
