Hey, I was looking at this thing on my user page and thinking "I can use this as a message board without stealing anything from anyone!"

Notices

My mother changed my computer password, so I might not be on as much as I used to.Ha ha, I got it back!

I'll have filled this up by tomorrow, hopefully.

Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Cold!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • Keep an eye on the Messages from the Editor on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either 130 or 0233 on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a capital B. The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon or other media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • Image uploading is done on Bulbagarden Archives, a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded. To activate your account at the Archives and Bulbanews, please login there using the same username and password you use here on Bulbapedia.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Cold/Archive 1/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --MoldyOrange 14:37, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Question

Did you just join here just to do those missions? If so, that's not a good reason to join. Bulbapedia is about expanding the knowledge about Pokémon, not to play games. So on, all those missions will probably be deleted. Please try to contribute to the main articles instead of playing games. --ケンジガール 22:29, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Actaully, when i didn't even know about the missions when i joined. i just sort of found out about them.Kkllnn 22:32, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Link templates

You have to use the link templates when you write articles. Considering how many Pikachu are out there, you want to link to Pikachu instead. If you don't understand the concept of link templates, visit the shortlinks page; it explains everything pretty well, and helped me out when I first joined. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 21:23, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Please

Slow down on editing the User: namespace. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --ニョロトノ666 21:42, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Splash

I made that messy edit to Splash 10 days ago and no one has bothered to fix it! I'd do it myself, but I can't figure out how! Someone please help!--Blastoise Totally Rules!!! 22:30, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Never mind, I fixed it.--Kkllnn blastoise 20:13, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Drake's Dragonite

Since I am new to Bulbapedia, I'll write a comment on your user talk page saying that Drake's Dragonite used eight moves, not six. It used Water Gun, Ice Beam, Slam and Dragon Rage on Charizard, Water Gun and Thunderbolt on Squirtle, Body Slam and Thunder on Tauros, and Hyper Beam on Pikachu before finally being taken out with Pikachu's Thunder attack. Watch the episode again, if you don't believe me.- unsigned comment from Hmdwgf (talkcontribs)

OK, sorry. However, I never actually watched the episode, I just read the adaptation. That teaches me to listen to Tracey West, lol. Plus, please sign your comments with four of these(~). --Blastoise Totally Rules!!! 18:36, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
HOLY !@#$% You edited my talk page 5 times?!?!? It clearly says "Show Preview" next to "Save Page". Please use that.--Blastoise Totally Rules!!! 18:41, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Hey

Thanks for restoring the comment that guy deleted.

And on that note, I get to remind you of our signature policy. Awesome as Blastoise may be, your signature ought to at least visibly indicate your username (as opposed to simply including a link to your page). Sorry. Check out the sig policy page for more info. --((Marton imos)) 19:09, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Okay, sure. How's this?--Kkllnn blastoise 19:16, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
Much better. --((Marton imos)) 19:25, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Psst.

Not Pachirisu. TTEchidna 19:21, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

huh? explanation needed.--Kkllnn blastoise 19:21, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Pachi's fully evolved, but can't learn Hyper Beam. TTEchidna 19:29, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
oh--Kkllnn blastoise 19:32, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Sockpuppeting

I'm his best friend. He told me to make a few edits he's been watching--Blisselebi 21:05, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Wait, are you Kuki or Jmath? I'm lost--Kkllnn blastoise 21:06, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

My Username

hey kkllnn on your user page the darkrai I gave you under it you spelt my user name wrong it is MyUU--MyUU 21:39, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

So?--Kkllnn blastoise 21:41, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi

Have time to chat?--KukiTalk 20:18, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

I've noticed you working on adding link templates on the TCG articles, I have also noticed you are using the {{g}} template. Might you be able to use the {{game}} {{game|Red and Blue|s}} template instead? Using the latter template will link properly to the game articles, instead of to a redirect. It gets them to the same place, but I feel it's best to avoid linking to them Also, the latter template looks a little bit neater in the code. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 21:04, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Ok, sorry. Thanks for telling me!--Kkllnn blastoise 21:05, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
Um, does this mean I have to go and correct all the cards (Vending Machine cards, Base Set, Jungle) I've been working on?--Kkllnn blastoise 21:10, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
No, don't worry about the earlier ones. They still get the reader to the same place in the end run. ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me | 21:15, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
*Sighs with relief*--Kkllnn blastoise 21:16, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

yay!

good to know.GoldsWigglytuff 21:34, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Undo?

Why did you undo my edit?Joe kik as 22:32, 7 November 2008 (UTC)Joe kik as

I've undone a lot of edits. Which one?--Kkllnn blastoise 22:35, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
The togekiss one about the contest back spirit--Joe kik as 22:40, 7 November 2008 (UTC)Joe kik as
You used "Not sure if." We don't want the little kids to know that we exsist. heh. heh. heh. As well, if anyone else has proved this, they can certainly revert my revert.--Kkllnn blastoise 21:10, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
I know it works in diamond because i have diamond and not pearlJoe kik as 00:37, 11 November 2008 (UTC)Joe kik as
Ok, fine, I fixed it. As well, if this is the case in Diamond, it's probably the case in Pearl as well. Happy now?--Kkllnn blastoise 20:51, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Bullets

while a user isnt supposed to make an edit for the sole reason of adding a bullet, why did you undo it? -- MAGNEDETH 01:40, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

This is why.--Kkllnn blastoise 21:01, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Was it because of the edit summary that Juan used? Chocolate 21:13, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
No, it was because of the one you used. I assumed you knew what you were doing.--Kkllnn blastoise 21:16, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, it turns out I was wrong. Chocolate 21:19, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Wa, wa, waaaaaa--Kkllnn blastoise 21:20, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Courtesy

did you ever think that user didn't know how to upload images? Those were their first edits ever, don't assume everyong knows everything from the start. MaverickNate 23:56, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Alright, sorry, I'll ease up next time--The Kkllnnator blastoise 20:55, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
