Forums: Index Help desk Pokébox talk 2

We need to figure out what items we want to keep in the pokébox, and which ones we want to add, as well as the ones we want to get rid of. Please look carefully at each pokébox. Make sure that when you vote, that if you are not happy with all of the items in the pokébox that you tell which ones you would add or take away from the box you voted for.   Slay Talk  "Shadows wonder why we scream."20:51,2/23/2014    4,527

Comments/Voting/Option Selection

Option 1

Support Support:This has everything the proposed ones have and more (evolutionary line). RainbowShifter 09:50, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Neutral Neutral: Eh, I'd rather we have a new template rather than keep this one, only if there are no good ideas left.

Option 2

Oppose Oppose: It does not have the pre-evolution and post-evolution parameters. Not very pleased about that. Energy X 23:49, March 6, 2014 (UTC)

Option 3

Support Support: I am for this one IF the Regional Pokédex section can be hidden. 07:54, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
I just noticed the evolutionary line section on this thanks to Rain... this setup would cause a major mess for Pokemon like Eevee. 09:02, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Neutral Neutral:If there is a way/space we can impliment a section for the evolutionary line onto this box (like in the current one, with the spirites and arrows) then that would be great. RainbowShifter 08:26, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Neutral Neutral: Hm, while there are certainly new parameters around, it needs the parameter for Pokémon that have more than one evolved form. Energy X 23:49, March 6, 2014 (UTC)


What exactly do you mean RS?   Slay Talk  "Shadows wonder why we scream."00:51,2/28/2014    4,527  

You see on the current template we have a section for the Evolutionary Line? Because I feel this is a good and important part of the Pokébox, I wouldn't support a template which doesn't have that. RainbowShifter 14:06, February 28, 2014 (UTC)

If anyone is interested, I've made my own version of the new template and added everything that was missing. I'll probably add in a few tweaks here and there, but this is most of it. If you need examples, I have two here. MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 01:03, April 18, 2014 (UTC)

Added a feature that splits off GSC/HGSS and BW/B2W2 Pokédex entries. Made some tweaks. Also, is anyone going to comment on this anymore? MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 04:06, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
I will? 18:28, May 8, 2014 (UTC)
Well, then what do you think Felinoel? :P MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing!
I still think it needs to be updated to something nicer and easier to read. 20:49, May 27, 2014 (UTC)
Such as? MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 23:55, August 8, 2014 (UTC)
I've illustrated my opinion on this matter in the past. 16:30, September 30, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I've read that and it doesn't help me currently. MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 17:26, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
The illustration? Not much to read, more to look at. 18:36, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, so you want something that's not reading material but more of a "look at-get the general view" kinda thing. Is that right? MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 17:06, October 30, 2014 (UTC)
No I was saying that that is what it currently is. 16:25, November 5, 2014 (UTC)
But... isn't that the point? MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 21:03, January 15, 2015 (UTC)
I think there has been misunderstanding. The current one is kind of meh and has some unneeded fields and can be designed better. 05:16, January 19, 2015 (UTC)
Oh. Well, based on my template, what are your suggestions to make it better/unneeded fields? MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 06:18, January 20, 2015 (UTC)

Personally I quite like the current template. My only real criticisms would be that too much space is given to the cry and gender fields, and that the evolves from/to sections are kinda redundant as the evolutionary line already shows that info. Maybe the generation field is a bit pointless as well? It'd be nice to see base stats added somewhere- it would be neater to have them included rather than have separate sections in articles, particularly for Megas.

Specifically looking over your example, Shadowdemon137; as stated I'm not a big fan of the 'evolves by/from' fields, for the reason above plus there's too much redundant space, especially in Eevee's case. Perhaps the evolved by info could be incorporated into the evolutionary line field? There's also a lot of white space around the Pokémon images atm, and the abilities section could do with being smaller as well. I'm trying to picture what it'd be like if the main heading was shifted left (above the image) with something else (evo line? National dex previous/next?) on the top-right. I'd consider changing 'color' back to 'Pokédex color' too, otherwise people unfamiliar with the games will get the wrong idea and change a bunch of colours. Other than that, it's looking good.

Edit: I have no idea why the Pages with broken file links category came up. Somebody enlighten me? Jazzcookie (talk) 19:38, February 3, 2015 (UTC)

Alright. Sorry about the long delay Jazz, but I edited it a little more to what you were specifying. How does it look? MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 00:49, May 24, 2015 (UTC)


Soo... Umm... Are we still discussing this, or...? MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 20:05, May 4, 2016 (UTC)

It's long past due. This should be closed, since a new discussion should be made - one that actually involves portable infoboxes. I've tried to make one, but failed. Energy X 21:08, May 4, 2016 (UTC)
