    The _pokemon_species_ articles was recently changed to automatically redirect to the species articles, instead of disambiguation page. That's great. Was waiting for it since discovered Bp.
    Suggesting the same changes to be made to articles about elemental types. Same reasoning.

    While you say that, Poison absolutely cannot. Nor can Psychic. The rest are a bit more feeble, but this is only happening for Pokémon.

    Sorry, that's not going to happen. The disambiguation change was for Pokemon only.

    Even though I told everyone that requests would begin to be made for the move and type disambigs to be killed next.

    We're not doing those ever. And that I can guarantee.

    Yeah, it is pointless to argue with several mods, I guess...
    Requesting this unnecessary pages to be unified at least.
    For Dark type it says: "A type in the Pokémon games that debuted in Generation II, see Dark (type)", for Fire: "The Fire type in the games." and for Ghost: "The Ghost-type, one of the seventeen elemental types that a Pokémon can have." and so on. This makes it harder to navigate...

    *raises hand*

    May I suggest adding locations of moves that are available in TM form to be put on the move articles themselves? Instead of having to click on the tiny-and-somewhat missable TM list-on-the-right just to find out where they are?

    But the problem is that there are other, completely different things of those names: such as Darkness-type in the TCG, the various ghosts that have appeared in the anime and games... I'll again mention the anomaly which is the Psychic trainer's Psychic-type Pokémon using Psychic... when there are this many things of the same name, we've got to use the disambiguations as we are now.

I was breeding a female kingdra with a male dewgong.
    Can someone explain? I'm quite baffled.
    This kind of thing should go in the Video Games section. This thread is only for matters pertaining to Bulbapedia.

    Unfortunately, people will miss them regardless of where we put them. I wouldn't be against having part of the opening section containing a reference to the move being contained in a TM or HM, or available via move tutor, though.

    They wouldn't be missed if they were shoved between the Effect and Learned By subsections. The TM pages feel like they're more for, "Okay...I'm missing these TMs...but I don't know what move they contain....*search TM31* Oh hey, cool!" as opposed to, "Okay, I know there's a TM for EQ. Don't remember the number. *search EQ* Oh, it's TM26. Now where should I keep an eye out for it? ...D: Wait, it's not on the page?"

    while im not against your idea, i just wanted to point out that there is a link to TM26 on Equake's page (and so on with all other moves in TMs).

    Oh I know that. But unless that part of the template was recent, I didn't even notice it until the other day (what I mean by "missable") since most are just there to quick-check a move's power/acc/cat/range and who can learn it. And while it's cool the TM pages offer the location, and the move tutor page has locations, that part of the template tells you only how the move is available per generation and shouldn't pages offer up everything possibly associated with their content?

    If you think it's a bad idea, that's fine. The information's on other pages, so at least it's available somewhere, but a quick-link to the location never hurts either.

    i said i wasn't against the idea...but its actually been there for a while. perhaps what we can do is enlarge that section as its quite small. literally, the font is in <small> mode.

    Ah, I just meant, "a bad idea," in the long run. Someone might come up with some uber-awesome argument on why it shouldn't be there. But the box? Yeah, it could do with a small size upgrade.
