So what's going on? Are we going to the study? Would updating/making new more detailed storyline pages and including plot holes in them be acceptable?

No one's replying, but I think the best course of action is to make some plot-dedicated pages. Be sure to include spoiler warnings at the top, of course.

I'm fine with anyone handling it. If you need references towards official scripts, there's a completed script for Generation 1, and partially completed scripts for Generation 2, and for whatever reason, Generation 19.

You can also use this god forsaken project that was too much for me to handle, as I've paraphrased everything based on the actual in-game scripts (With some exaggerations...). There are a lot of gaps, but Generations 7, 8, 17, and Saga I are completed in its most of its entirety, save a few details.

As far as some ground rules:

  • No Speculations/Theories. Keep everything as true to what is said in-game.
  • Spoiler Warning at the top (Blargel already said, so just reminding you)
  • References, if any, should be cited.
    • I guess you could make a note on what quest(s) are related to the part of the plot of that page or something?
  • Make less of story page and keep it professional.

I can't think of anything else right now, but yeah, try to use common sense. As far as page names, I'm not entirely sure, but probably make it a subpage of the generation it's relating too? That sounds the easiest for me.

Everything sounds good so far. Subpages sounds like the best solution, either a subpage of each generation's page, or the subpage of a new disambiguation-sort of page that has links to all the others. But I'm not sure what you mean by "Make less of story page and keep it professional."

I'm halfway through Generation 1 on my new character, I'll try and write it from scratch and reference those resources for corrections and for the first part.

Do you guys think there should be a "Storyline" page or something along that line that links to all the individual storylines' pages?

Don't describe every single little detail unless it's important. Sorry if that wasn't clear. Also, professional as in proper grammar and such, like how wikipedia are written I guess, lol...

My biggest worry is that I might become too technical. I'm used to programming, and when I do occasionally write, it's like "to achieve this you must do this in this proper order". Which is why I usually avoided editing NPC pages and left it to the likes of you and Infodude. Do you have any advice in that department? How I can make it balanced and professional but not robotic.

Kapra - (Talk)01:56, 25 December 2015

Completely off-topic, but could you show me some of the things you've programmed?


Well you can always go for a first draft and if someone passes through and thinks something is weird, they can edit it or talk it out with you.
