on PidgiWiki, the video game media repository


Welcome to PidgiWiki, the Pokémon media repository. Feel free to use any images that you find here, and help to upload images!--immewnitythemew 21:23, 8 February 2011 (EST)

Howdy there.—★Pika3323 15:35, 9 February 2011 (EST)

Wait... I'm confused

As to what you just added to your userpage.--immewnitythemew 17:05, 18 February 2011 (EST)

I found S2daam's talk page and looked at it, it said I could move the page but not edit it.—★Pika3323 06:50, 19 February 2011 (EST)
Thank the MediaWiki forums!--PidgiWiki test user 15:33, 19 February 2011 (EST) (immewnity via test account)
Will PidgiWiki eventually have all 10000 (or so) sprites from pokemon games?!—★Pika3323 16:24, 19 February 2011 (EST)
I was not planning on adding those in the near future, though possibly we could after all the high-res art I have set to upload is done.--immewnitythemew 16:55, 19 February 2011 (EST)
Uploading that Eevee thing, I think I disturbed your plans...Spare me!—★Pika3323 18:35, 19 February 2011 (EST)
What about dream world stuff????—★Pika3323 19:13, 19 February 2011 (EST)
You didn't disturb my plans at all; in fact, where did you get it from? Though I have a feeling it was PNG when you got it. As for Dream World art, hold off for now; I got vectors of all the Pokemon.--immewnitythemew 10:30, 20 February 2011 (EST)


I don't think immewnity wants the backgrounds removed. I'm sure the point of the site is to upload images as they are, unedited. So I'd just wait to edit them all just incase he doesn't want them edited. --S2daam 07:19, 20 February 2011 (EST)

Does this mean that I can still add [[Category:Generation V]] to images to categorize them?—★Pika3323 07:22, 20 February 2011 (EST)
Yeah :) I just don't wanna see you take a long time to edit them all and then he says he didn't want them editing :L --S2daam 07:23, 20 February 2011 (EST)
If immewnity were here he would say get back to the archives. Top priority.—★Pika3323 07:52, 20 February 2011 (EST)
I'd like the backgrounds to be removed, but not this way. See, if we remove the Poke Ball, we would also be removing some border, changing the art from the original state. Now, for categorizing, do as much as you want. I have a category "tree" written down that I really need to digitize soon for you guys to see.--immewnitythemew 10:30, 20 February 2011 (EST)
Ooooh, Category tree, sounds shiny!—★Pika3323 14:01, 20 February 2011 (EST)
If graphite is shiny, then yes.--immewnitythemew 14:18, 20 February 2011 (EST)

Battle Frontier art

Did you convert that via Photoshop? It's really good.--immewnitythemew 16:53, 20 February 2011 (EST)

Yes I did, thank you.—★Pika3323 22:08, 20 February 2011 (EST)
Is that how you converted Pachirisu, too?--immewnitythemew 22:09, 20 February 2011 (EST)
It was never a CMYK—★Pika3323 22:10, 20 February 2011 (EST)
Okay. :D Yeah, Photoshop is the only one that real CMYK fixing seems to work with. Can you try that with Lugia and Ho-Oh? They should be full CMYK.--immewnitythemew 22:22, 20 February 2011 (EST)


Can you please try following the category map? Specifically, the separation of Category:Games and Category:Packaging. I have an extension installed that lets us combine categories at will.--immewnitythemew 11:39, 5 March 2011 (EST)

Move it to "Category:Packaging" under "Category:Video Games?—★Pika3323 11:44, 5 March 2011 (EST)
No. Packaging will be a separate category, wherein all packaging goes in. Video games (note the lowercase g) will also be categorized, so when searching using that extension, Video game packaging can be found.--immewnitythemew 11:48, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Still son't understand this categorizing, also with the release of Black and White yesterday(?) and tomorrow (Yay! =D) english names have been revealed for the BW player charecters, can I move those?—★Pika3323 11:54, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Feel free to move them to the respective names. As for the categorization, lemme create the categories and show you an example.--immewnitythemew 11:59, 5 March 2011 (EST)
I have a png of the category map if you want me to upload it.—★Pika3323 12:01, 5 March 2011 (EST)
No... it's on, perfectly fine. That's only for our use, ATM; it's kinda messy.--immewnitythemew 12:09, 5 March 2011 (EST)
I fixed the Hilda thing, btw; stupid server. Anyways, see how I did File:Emerald box.jpg.--immewnitythemew 12:18, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Ok, a little bit of Ctrl+C and a bit of Ctrl+V and some text changes should do.—★Pika3323 12:20, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Also, keep in mind that I changed Sugimori art to Sugimori artwork. This applies to Ohmura and Unno too.--immewnitythemew 12:27, 5 March 2011 (EST)
Alright, I'm not doing this alone, not after having to upload and tag 493X2 + a few sprites alone. I'm adding this to the to-do list.—★Pika3323 12:35, 5 March 2011 (EST)


...yeah...aboutthat...umm... *runs* Sorry! I was going to get to them now, but seems that you already nabbed them! Thanks!--immewnitythemew 22:37, 14 March 2011 (EDT)

Game screenshots are at large, they have them at your sources, can I upload?—★Pika3323 06:39, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
Right now, can we upload things from the Dropbox, then get to those?--immewnitythemew 07:25, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
I'm only holding back on uploading those files 'cause I don't know how to name them.—★Pika3323 07:32, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
Oh, and the screenshot was from the fankits.—★Pika3323 07:33, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
Just try and guess for naming. I'll fix them if I have some spare time. See, uploading is the hard part for me, as I am on numerous different computers throughout the day.--immewnitythemew 19:20, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
I'm around every day, just i'm to interested in playing online games, also I'm waiting for you to answer.—★Pika3323 20:45, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
Anything you need me to answer right now?--immewnitythemew 21:23, 15 March 2011 (EDT)

PSD files

They have transparency, so keep them as saving and uploading as PNG. Yes, that means you have to delete the JPG.--immewnitythemew 07:23, 16 March 2011 (EDT)

Alright... (*sigh*)—★Pika3323 07:25, 16 March 2011 (EDT)
A French version of Black and White has been released, just not in France.—★Pika3323 07:41, 16 March 2011 (EDT)
I meant language codes. :P Sorry, Canada, Belgium, Côte d'Ivoire, etc.!--immewnitythemew 19:53, 16 March 2011 (EDT)

Just a heads up

Before doing a major change to a template or major page, do you mind consulting me first? Not because they're not necessarily good edits, but because it takes off a bit of my work load.--immewnitythemew 19:47, 24 March 2011 (EDT)

Ok I'll stop.—★Pika3323 19:48, 24 March 2011 (EDT)
Sorry about today.—★Pika3323 06:58, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
That was really overboard; please, next time you do ANYTHING that affects the site, ask me and wait for a response.--immewnitythemew 09:43, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
April fools...(no enthusiasm at all) remember, you can always take my sysop powers away (don't mean to get technical but everything I do here affects the site) =(—★Pika3323 14:49, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
Why take the sysop powers away? And by affects the site, I mean affects every page or system pages.--immewnitythemew 15:40, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
I know what "affects the site" means, taking the sysop powers away because I cause so much trouble.—★Pika3323 15:46, 1 April 2011 (EDT)

So that this works right...

Don't edit until all ~1600 pages are marked. Thanks!--immewnitythemew 12:16, 2 April 2011 (EDT)

Hey you. Check your e-mail. I need your input on something.--immewnitythemew 19:28, 3 April 2011 (EDT)

I think I found our mass upload tool

It's me when I have nothing to do. :P--immewnitythemew 21:35, 9 April 2011 (EDT)

=)—★Pika3323 21:43, 9 April 2011 (EDT)

Reply to Image Issues

Well I use a program called Paint.NET. Why you ask? --TheChandelure 15:21, 13 April 2011 (EDT)


Are only bad when they have an issue (double or broken).--immewnitythemew 16:47, 14 April 2011 (EDT)

Okee dokee.—★Pika3323 16:48, 14 April 2011 (EDT)

Just so you know...

Bulbagarden doesn't like other people stealing their naming conventions, even for templates. I'll leave this one be, as it could very easily have been thought up aside from Bulbagarden, but just FYI.--immewnitythemew 11:55, 16 April 2011 (EDT)

Okay, but next time, can you come up with an easier name to remember? Please?—★Pika3323 12:10, 16 April 2011 (EDT)

Some things

I think the thumbnail issue can be fixed with cropping. Also, if you really want to upload screenshots... see those high-res ones? :P--immewnitythemew 10:41, 17 April 2011 (EDT)

Has dat file saved yet?—★Pika3323 10:52, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
What file?--immewnitythemew 10:56, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
The near 1GB ZIP file from england, duh.—★Pika3323 10:56, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Yeah, but it seems 7zip missed a number of files. Let me see if I still have the original zip.--immewnitythemew 11:03, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
*Desperately trying to upload big file* I wonder what happens when you Optimize an Optimized file...—★Pika3323 11:05, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
I put that file in the drop box under the file PBR.—★Pika3323 11:08, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Compressing as we speak. *crosses fingers*--immewnitythemew 11:15, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
I use window's built in file extractor, it works fine. =P—★Pika3323 11:21, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
It was my computer's fault. :P--immewnitythemew 11:29, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Would this help?—★Pika3323 11:32, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Ash Pokemaster is on that already.--immewnitythemew 12:07, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
I want to see who visits here from where, can I?—★Pika3323 11:50, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Except HTML isn't allowed on wikis. I'd have to hardcode it, and it would only work for a single page, unless I stick it in the bottom. But that one is too large for the footer.--immewnitythemew 12:07, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Also, remember that EPS is a vector file, like SVG. Convert to SVG if possible.--immewnitythemew 12:25, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Who says (some) HTML isn't allowed on wikis?—★Pika3323 13:46, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Ummm, explain why could I register to nintendo europe's media site in dutch.—★Pika3323 20:08, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Script coding isn't allowed, and you won't get a response from NoE unless you live in the Netherlands.--immewnitythemew 23:25, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Code scripting? What's that?—★Pika3323 14:58, 18 April 2011 (EDT)
JavaScript.--immewnitythemew 17:02, 18 April 2011 (EDT)
I didn't use JavaScript, I just went to the dutch site.—★Pika3323 20:52, 18 April 2011 (EDT)
I was saying that about the hit counter. :P The Dutch site only allows you in if you live in the Netherlands.--immewnitythemew 20:59, 18 April 2011 (EDT)
Oh, that's what you meant.—★Pika3323 06:58, 19 April 2011 (EDT)

Zelda category

So, now that there isn't just Pokémon things on the Wiki, wouldn't it be much more convenient if we had a parent category for each series, containing all related categories? For Pokémon it's too late, and will need lots of work... But there's still hope for Zelda. :P Ash Pokemaster 03:02, 8 May 2011 (CDT)

That's what we had planned.—★Pika3323 05:16, 8 May 2011 (CDT)
So, why not apply it for Zelda now that it's not to late, and avoid additional editing later? o_o Ash Pokemaster 08:23, 8 May 2011 (CDT)
You would put it in a zelda game category and put the game category in a top category for the series, I guess.—★Pika3323 08:25, 8 May 2011 (CDT)

Let's go past the false end of the world time warp

It's fixed.--immewnitythemew 08:50, 21 May 2011 (CDT)

Fix Vector skin plz, blue looks ugly and cheezy.—★Pika3323 09:08, 21 May 2011 (CDT)
On it.--immewnitythemew 09:14, 21 May 2011 (CDT)
Better?--immewnitythemew 09:45, 21 May 2011 (CDT)
Yes. Thanx.—★Pika3323 10:16, 21 May 2011 (CDT)

Look at this

I can't explain it either. A cache purge fixed it, though, so don't fret over it.--immewnitythemew 21:47, 4 June 2011 (CDT)

Wha??? Pidginet forums???, I still don't think you wanted to tell me that like that, so... what???—★Pika3323 05:13, 5 June 2011 (CDT)
Oh, WTF.—★Pika3323 05:24, 5 June 2011 (CDT)

Looks like someone likes Emolga as much as I do!

Sorry, you ninja'd me with the Emolga QR code :P.--JB2448 06:02, 7 June 2011 (CDT)

It's ok, I'm trying to figure out whether we can have accents (é) in file names, it's caused some problems recently.—★Pika3323 06:10, 7 June 2011 (CDT)


Can you upload the original, with the white border?--immewnitythemew 08:16, 7 June 2011 (CDT)

NVM.--immewnitythemew 08:16, 7 June 2011 (CDT)


For removing the QR codes. Didn't get to doing that last night.--immewnitythemew 10:06, 11 June 2011 (CDT)

MediaWiki:$1!—★Pika3323 18:06, 11 June 2011 (CDT)
What about it?--immewnitythemew 22:19, 12 June 2011 (CDT)

Hey! Listen!

Most of the artwork currently labeled Ocarina of Time 3D is actually from the original. I'll move the current ones, but in case more get posted.--immewnitythemew 15:07, 12 June 2011 (CDT)

Which ones? They came from the OoT3D folder.—★Pika3323 15:15, 12 June 2011 (CDT)
Not the new ones, the older ones. A lot of the ones the UK site had were from the original. BTW, you don't need to use the UK site for the E3 stuff; everything is on the FTP.--immewnitythemew 15:28, 12 June 2011 (CDT)
BTW, upload limit increased.--immewnitythemew 16:04, 12 June 2011 (CDT)
Thanks >=< |)—★Pika3323 17:17, 12 June 2011 (CDT)
WELCOME!--immewnitythemew 22:19, 12 June 2011 (CDT)

French logos

Where are they coming from?--immewnitythemew 19:48, 20 June 2011 (CDT)

Nintendo Europe (Français Belgique).—★Pika3323 19:50, 20 June 2011 (CDT)
Ah; merci!--immewnitythemew 20:29, 20 June 2011 (CDT)
C'est rien!—★Pika3323 20:36, 20 June 2011 (CDT)

Wii U vector

Is this official or fanmade? (i.e. source?)--immewnitythemew 21:35, 30 June 2011 (CDT)

I can't be 100% sure. Mario Wiki.—★Pika3323 05:20, 1 July 2011 (CDT)


Please? Can you get these two?--immewnitythemew 09:29, 1 August 2011 (CDT)

Quick fix

For the SVG rendering, I can manually replace the thumbnails. It in no way is a permanent fix, but since there shouldn't be much non-standard thumbnailing going on, it should do well.--immewnitythemew 12:27, 15 August 2011 (CDT)


For blocking and welcoming. I haven't been checking the recent changes lately.--immewnitythemew 18:26, 10 December 2011 (PST)

No prob, when bored I pointlessly check PW and BP. So something like that is pretty exciting for me! =P —★Pika3323 18:55, 10 December 2011 (PST)

Rattus Resizing

Yes, I did. I had scanned it from the manual at 600 dpi, and it still looked like crap. I uploaded it in haste, and then decided to shrink it a little before re-uploading it. Icysugarspike 06:48, 29 June 2012 (PDT)

One of the most important rules of PW. Never resize, cropping is fine, just try not to resize. ;) —★Pika3323 18:20, 29 June 2012 (PDT)
I wouldn't say that's one of the most important rules. One of the most important rules is to not upscale. If the manual appears to be printed at a lesser DPI than it was scanned at, then resize it to the approximate size from the manual.
Also, cropping is fine, as long as it is whitespace (or blank space) and would not reduce image quality (i.e. a JPG being edited to crop out whitespace and then being resaved as a JPG).--immewnitythemew 20:26, 30 June 2012 (PDT)

Sources site

Click the (logins) to the right of the header on the sources site to get the logins. It's not how I'd like them to be displayed, but it works for now.--immewnitythemew 19:54, 2 July 2012 (PDT)


It won't automatically delete double redirects, I have to run the script.--immewnitythemew 07:45, 4 July 2012 (PDT)

Then run teh script. =P —★Pika3323 07:46, 4 July 2012 (PDT)
Working on it.--immewnitythemew 07:48, 4 July 2012 (PDT)
Don't bother with those categories, they're going to be replaced soon anyways.--immewnitythemew 07:59, 4 July 2012 (PDT)
