    At the moment it's staying, partly because there's a small possibility that it could be changed back, and mostly because it makes it easier to pick out the links which are going to the wrong page. (e.g. Ash's [[Pikachu]])

    Not to mention that changing {{p}} would crash the wiki. And removing it would take over 18000 edits. Basically, it would be too big a project.

    So for the time being, please still use {{p}} to link to species pages. There's just no need to add the "(Pokémon)" if you're searching. (For those that are wondering, if you want it to say something different, put the alt text as the second parameter.)

    Also, there's a chance (however small) that something else in the series will be named, say, Oddish. Leaving (Pokemon) keeps our options open down the road.

    Not sure if this belongs here but I was looking at Rapidash's page and something doesn't seems right with its picture. I don't think it's showing updated artwork.

    It's the artwork from RG, because it's the anniversary of the release of Red and Green versions (and as a result, the 'birthday' of Pokémon).

    This is why we need to have a list of important dates somewhere.

    Suggestion: someone compiles a list of important dates. (I was going to do this, but I don't think I will have time any more.)

    I will be able to do that in about two weeks when I'm on spring break.

    Re: transcripts.

    I tried to do one of EP061, and having pretty much no transcripting abilities, captured maybe every third line. Not gonna work without a group effort that includes some skilled people.

    Not that I oppose the idea of keeping (Pokémon) at the end of the page names (in fact, I'd rather leave it), if we were to have this happen, I think it would be better to have Oddish lead to the Pokémon and leave a disambig note on the top.

    I'll probably add some more to my template when I have some spare time.

    Hullo! I have to say, I love Bulbapedia to pieces. It's my go-to!

    I had a thought, though, looking at the page for Earthquake. Would it be possible to change the listings of the Pokémon who can learn a move to not include Pokémon from previous generations, unless there was a change? For example, with Earthquake, the list of Pokémon who could learn it in Gen 1 would stay the same, the Gen 2 list for level up would omit all the Gen 1 Pokémon save the Rhyhorn line, and the TM list would omit all the Gen 1 Pokémon save Aerodactyl, etc?

    Or, in another line of thought, could you make it so, defaultly, only the latest generation is seen, and the rest have that handy lil 'hide' tag?

    Some of these TM pages DO get kinda comically long.

    Smile Safari Zone Glitch

    On the safari zone glitch page, there's a section for special warps and such. But I discovered another today that wasn't mentioned. If you time out at the entrance of Viridian Forest, you warp to the building on the side of the forest that can only be reached after you use cut. It wasn't a huge discovery, just figured it was interesting enough to be mentioned :)

    That would be way too confusing. I have also heard that they can take a rather long time to load on Dial-up - which the show/hide wouldn't fix. What would be our best option would be to have it like the Pokémon's learnsets. I don't know where discussion of that got to though.

    Don't most episodes of Pokemon have Captions on the DVDs? If a transcript set was to be made, it would probably be easier to extract them straight from the DVDs, less effort needed plus less possible inaccuracy.

    As Evkl has said, no trasncripts are to be posted anywhere on Bulbagarden until someone can prove definitively that 1) it is legal and 2) Nintendo won't consider it a breach of their intellectual property.

    Because even if you manage to make it pass one of those, unless there is a guarantee that it also passes the other requirement it is too risky to be done.

    Actually, in some cases the CC doesn't always match up with the spoken line. This happens in DP quite a bit.
