I don't really like this template, least in the current format. It's cute and all, but it doesn't really work as a file summary:

  1. The text is not informative enough: It needs to say which episode the WTP is from, even if the filename already does so.
  2. The text is not in a file summary style: While I like the cuteness of, "Who's That Pokémon? It's Pikachu!" it just doesn't fit.
  3. I think it would look better with the menu sprites rather than the current battle sprites: With each generation, since Gen II, the battle sprites have been getting exponentially larger. They really make a lot of templates larger than they need to be.

A template for the summary of WTP & Dare da, however, is a great idea and I am glad you have made a mock-up in the userspace to get the idea rolling. :3 - Kogoro - Talk to me - 14:25, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the feedback, Kogoro! As you suggested, I changed the template to be more informative. My new template includes a switch for Dare da?, a if-switch for instances such as Brutella and Ash's Noctowl, and a parameter for the episode in question. The only problem I seem to be having with this version is getting the Category for parameter two, the Pokémon, to appear automatically. I had it set so that it wouldn't appear if the subject parameter was used, but now it won't bring it up when it's needed. - Chosen of Mana 16:48, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

UPDATE - I redid the coding of the categories, and they work! I think this template is ready for use. - Chosen of Mana 13:46, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
