The resource has been percolating for a while and undergoing its formative development for a few months; now, with a higher-end hosting switchover finalized, I am ready to announce that PRO has its official wiki!

While PRO's network of services has had all the resources that are indispensable for an MMO—the game, forums, and website, namely—since its nascency, it has always missed one major auxiliary resource: an official wiki—a premier informational resource that's become concomitant enough to virtually every informable MMO in existence. Fan-made ones were operationalized; however, between their lack of officiality and the fact that they ran on lower-end wiki farms (a la wikia), they only garnered half-realized traction—certainly not enough to catalyze their development and maintenance to the point where they were sustainable resources.

Forums guides have been informative in their own rights—and certainly have been and will continue to be seminal to the wiki's content development—but there is no glossing over the notion that they have been mostly stopgaps due to the lack of a wiki; that is because they simply were never designed to fulfill the information-sharing and -editing modalities that wikis do.

With the integration of this new official resource, there are bound to be some knock-on changes; I'll try to address them all, below.

What will happen to the forums-guide section?

Although it will remain open for a while, we would enjoin most guide-creators and -editors to transpose their work onto the wiki. On the coattails of the wiki's addition, there is to be a paradigm shift with information-control; that means decentering from forums guides and focusing most of the informational work on the wiki.

The only exceptions are the more subjective guides that the wiki can not document any consistently concordant information for. There are some topics that inherently subjectify the content on its guide, such as constructing a PvP-viable lineup; those would be better-suited for the forums than the wiki. PRO Wiki has its crosshairs specifically on objective content and information.

Over time, the objective-data/-information sections of the Guides forums may be closed and only remain extant for archival purposes, but it will still remain editable for it; it is just disadvisable more than anything else, depending on the nature of the guide.

Contributing to PRO Wiki

If you are interested in contributing to it, you can request an account, here. Registration may eventually be deregulated into an openly registrable system; but until there are enough wiki-staff members available, registration will be done on a by-request basis in order to curtail potentially under-moderated vandalism early on.

Since you will need to be at least slightly adroit in the wiki's mark-up languages and the template usages in order to substantially contribute, you are advised to reverse-engineer some of the pages just to acquaint yourself with the wiki syntax; you can do so by clicking on the "edit" or "view source" tab on any page. I have modularized various templates to enhance the editor-friendliness for the wiki-editing laymen that may wish to contribute; as such, while it may seem a bit daunting to use the wiki language initially, there generally is a smooth learning curve to traverse after dabbling into it.

Do remember that as an official resource, you are liable for in-game punishments for potentially flagrant misdeeds done on the wiki. I will try to delineate a ruleset with due course; until then, there should be a tacit understanding of what is unacceptable, as there are some obvious vices that won't be tolerated—inappropriate content (as it comports to the in-game rules), blatant misinformation, and so forth.

Perorational note


If there are any questions, concerns, or feedback, this would be the optimal topic to start in.

Remember that since the wiki is still only in its budding stage of development, there are many incompletions; that is a project for all of us to tackle collectively, as we avail from the wiki's hallmark of collaborative editability in working together on it.

The fertile grounds are rich enough for the wiki to become PRO's best informational resource, and the seeds have been planted; it is up to us to cultivate them!

Awesome, thank you for the wiki :D



One thing though, I just checked, there is no Elekid at all in Pinkan Island, but according to the Pokemon Counterparts page, Pink Elekid exist there.

Other thing not available in the wild are available via evolution, but Elekid is a pre-evolved form.

Basically, conflicting information with what's in the game. Does boss Jenny has a chance to give pink Elekid?

Not all Pinkan Island Pokemon are spawnable in the game; there are some that have been pinkified because of their evolutionary lineage with Pokemon that actually are, such as Elekid in Electabuzz' evolutionary line, but they have yet to be made releasable in-game. Since the write-up is misinterpretable enough, however, I'll emend it momentarily.

We hope to make them obtainable in some avenue, but Officer Jenny—and every other boss NPC—isn't it; that's precluded by the fact that NPC-given Pokemon can not have any pink chance, as shininess is the only determinable counterpart there is for it.
