Forums: Index Watercooler Pokémon Techniques

I liked what Devitt.logan did with Counter Shield. Since the anime (manga, games and movies too?) has made all these techniques utilizing Pokémon moves (electricity coated Pikachu and Swellow), how about making technique pages? Here's what I think the box should look like if approved:

{{Pokémon Technique Box
|type = 
|type2 = 
|name = 
|image = 
|moves utilized =
|category =
|trainer(s) =
|debut =
|media =

I made a demo of what could be the template here. --OmegaRasengan (talk) 07:37, November 18, 2013 (UTC)
Okay, for some reason the template isn't showing now. --OmegaRasengan (talk) 17:34, November 18, 2013 (UTC)

Hm, hard to say that we should apply this. Wouldn't be a better solution to merge it under one page? Energy X 19:22, November 18, 2013 (UTC)

What do you mean by merging? --OmegaRasengan (talk) 19:34, November 18, 2013 (UTC)
Instead of having multiple articles, we can just have one that describes these non-type moves, then write when they were used. Energy X 21:46, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
@Slayingthehalcyon - I made a sandbox template but for some reason isn't working at the moment. And I'm sure other users could manage to squeeze some info/benefits in. Plus it's not uncommon of articles with little info. --OmegaRasengan (talk) 20:44, November 18, 2013 (UTC)


Support Support: This is good idea.I support it.--Monfernape 05:33, November 18, 2013 (UTC)
Support Support: lol hmm, splitting the anime universe from the game universe and still actually having mechanics-based info? This may be an interesting move and I for one am in support of it. 01:44, November 18, 2013 (UTC)
Oppose Oppose: Until I can see a box or something that will be used and what the exact benefits of this are, My thoughts are no. There's just not enough information given on this page or the pages linked to make me think that this is a good idea...   Slay Talk  "Shadows wonder why we scream."20:08,11/18/2013    4,527  
Oppose Oppose: Shouldn't we just have it on the Pokémon's page (eg. Aqua Ice Jet for Ash's Buizel) under a sub-section of "Known moves" as "Improvised moves". RainbowShifter 16:36, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
Support Weak support: While I agree that these moves are unique in that they differ with how the game works, I agree with Slaying that there might just not be enough info for separate pages for each instance. However, I do support this idea and will add a little comment on my thoughts: How about we do what Energy suggested above about a hub page for all the moves seen and in each section, all examples of said move would be listed? Then, if any section gets big enough for its own article, we split it off. MissingNo.GhostSpriteLord of Shadows Words mean nothing! 23:25, November 22, 2013 (UTC)
