    Hey,

    I felt disappointed in Bulbapedia today, for the first time. I love Bulbapedia, I think this website is great. Today though, Bulbapedia did something completely unethical. Bulbapedia, a website CLEARLY marketed towards a younger generation, is now displaying banners for cigarettes on almost every page. Not just cigarettes, "healthier" cancer-causing sticks. Way to go bublapedia, advertising cigarettes to a young generation. I have loved this site, but I am never coming back, unless these horribly marketed adds are taken away.

    Bad ads do tend to sneak in...all you have to do is report it to us and we can get it removed.

    Not only that, but if you actually were to register with Bulbapedia, you wouldn't see ads.

    Here's a good question... if you're never coming back, how will you know if the ads are gone or not?

    Also, yeah, we kinda don't see the ads on a daily basis considering most of us are logged in all the time. Now, further details are needed if you want us to be able to kill these ads: what page, which adspace, and what company?

    If anyone else sees these, please give us as much detail on these as you can. It seems very unusual that these ads would get in our rotation to begin with, but it's not impossible, and we will investigate it. I'm not seeing them myself, and it's possible it's already been fixed by our ad network, but then I'm Australian, and I could well be seeing different targeted ads than you are.

    ok, i went offline and did some investigating.
    i only found one smoking ad which can be seen right here.
    however, upon my investigation, i found a few ads for something called "Evony" and the images dont strike me as appropriate for the site, as seen here and here.
    also, this ad isnt offensive, its just really annoying. it halts the page for 15 seconds, or you tell it to skip.

    Fixed. The images were moved to a new filename, as HGSS has the same frontier. Nobody fixed the page, however.

    I think you guys need to have a different listing for Legendary Pokemon like Mewtwo and Deoxys, that are only given legendary status because of their rarity or strength. Neither of these Pokemon even existed until very recently in the Pokemon world, so how can they be considered to be legendary?

    Legendaries are unique, (generally) non-gendered, and always (with one exception) non-breedable.

    Stats also come into play.

    I understand that those are the general guidelines for something to be considered a Legendary Pokemon on the Pedia. However, what I'm getting at is that some of the Pokemon that are listed as "Legendary" on there can't really be called "legendary" by the actual definition of the word. According to the article on Legendary Pokemon, there are multiple terms referring to what we call Legendaries, each with their own nuances and implications. Why don't you use those terms instead of grouping everything together and calling it Legendary?

    Don't forget no evolution chain; that works out all the time. Also, some are version-exclusives or have a major role in-game. Another biggie is (generally) only one per game. Events are exceptions. And, high catch levels, for the most part.

    ------------------------------------

    On a different note, we should go around checking for dead fanlistings; nearly all of them are.

    Because it's much easier to have one catchall term; plus, that's what the entire fanbase uses.
