Damage Table Templates

Since each of those templates involve nearly the same thing, with the exception of the title (e.g. "Weaknesses"), would it not be easier to make it all one template and just have a title attribute attached? This might be a better approach as it's cleaner, easier to edit, and easier to use. Tenfold 02:44, 4 July 2012 (BST)

Yes I was thinking of doing that actually, However I won't be adding those in until after I completely finish adding the Gen 3 Pokemon, Kanto Routes, And Johto Routes so for now I'll have to leave them like that, if you'd like to however, you can change them as you see fit.

So when I am trying to look up the imagenames to use in the wiki, the search seems to be acting rather strange. If I type for example 'weedle' I get no results, but if I type in '013' I will find 2 files, one of which also has weedle in its name. Any idea why it doesn't seem to work if you search on file name? I tried to find several of the latest uploaded files and I get no results. I also have no idea what I should search for to find these images. Niliusjulius 16:21, 7 July 2012 (BST)

Figured it out... Leaved out the first letter, so instead of "weedle" you search for "eedle" and it works... Niliusjulius 16:26, 7 July 2012 (BST)
Hm, pretty wierd, not sure why that happens. But alright then. Professor.Oak Professor.Oak 03:54, 8 July 2012 (BST)

Remember when editing.

I would like to formally remind you we expect proffesional quality from our wiki contributes. Unverified info leads to false information that make people distrust and not use the wiki. Even spelling errors hurt the credibility and quallity of the wiki. Please remember not everyone that uses the wiki is English speaking and many will use a translator. This could lead them to being confused by the translation and do possibly more harm than good.

The only reason why I did it like that is because the better part of the players use serebii or bulbapedia for comparisons such as these, not the playerdex pokedex. And if you wish to speak with us on matters like these, please do so in IRC.


Template Help

It might help you to look at the one of the several mediawiki help pages about templates instead of trying to figure it out from templates that are already made. Tenfold 22:25, 4 August 2012 (BST)

I've read a lot of it already, but it's still pretty hard to make them without any real practice. I also have no real way of testing the templates before I add them which is why I'm spamming the "recent changes", sorry. I got it pretty much down though, I'm currently trying to add the 4 previous templates that we talked about above ^^ into one. (This One, This One, This One, and This one) but... it turns out its a little harder then I imagined, but I got the main idea down now. Professor.Oak Professor.Oak 23:31, 4 August 2012 (BST)
Hey Oak, Have you thought of a way to add 2x and 4x damage to your weaknessess templates?
What do you mean 2X and 4X? If you mean when something is super-effective to something else, that has to do with the actual TYPE of move the Pokémon uses, not the Pokémon himself. For example Bulbasaur himself isnt Super-effective agaisnt Water Pokémon, his Grass Moves are.Professor.Oak Professor.Oak 00:59, 10 August 2012 (BST)
Also you can just type ~~~~ to leave your signature, it'll also put a time stamp on it.
Oh thanks,that will make things easier. But I am talking about what bulbapedia does, like Dragonite's Bulbapedia for instance, it shows that its 4x weak to ice type attacks and only 2x weak to dragon type attacks. Maybe you want to add that to your effectiveness templates.-Kstersslade (talk) 01:16, 10 August 2012 (BST)
Oh I see, never noticed that, I'll see what I can do.
I just thought maybe you frogot or didnt want to add it, but I think it will really help some people out, if you could implement it somehow. Kstersslade (talk) 01:45, 10 August 2012 (BST)
That code is so messy, It would take too long to make each one possibly state if it's 2X or 4X, so Instead I've added the option to add notes of the bottom of the tables. To use them you need to do... |Notes=Yes| Make sure the Yes is capitalized. Then for something that is 4X as weak add the parameter |4X1=Water| Change out water with whatever you want of course. You can also do 4X2 if the Pokémon has two types that it's 4X weak too, not sure if there is any but put it there just in case. If something is 1/4 Resistant then add the parameter |25X1=Water|. (the 25 coming from it being 25% resistant). That's about it, if you find any glitches/bugs let me know and I'll try and fix em'. I've created an example on the Dragonite page here Professor.Oak Professor.Oak 03:28, 10 August 2012 (BST)
That looks great Oak thanks, I will start adding notes. Kstersslade (talk) 04:00, 10 August 2012 (BST)
