Welcome to Bulbapedia, Pumpkinking0192!

By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Editing templates

Hi. Thanks for your correction in here, however, since this is a high-use traffic template, it means it's being used in +700 pages, and that could cause server stress. Imagine if you were editing a more complex template and you mess up, that could have been a trouble. Luckily, this one was simple enough. Next time, though, try suggesting the changes in the talk page, that way we'll look into it and make the edit entirely bug-free. Masatoshitalk 02:30, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

I'll be sure to do that in the future. :) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 02:33, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

Code of conduct

When using edit summaries, please don't make comments like this one in them. Good grammar is always a first priority here but be nice about it when you fix it. Not everyone here is a native English speaker here and can't always find a way to word things correctly. Telling them to "choke to death" is a little much. Thanks. --ケンジガール 19:08, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Scyther and Porygon2

I was actually in an extensive debate about that base stat issue earlier, and I know that Scyther and Scizor actually have *equal* base stat totals. I accounted for that in the Porygon-Z note by specifying that Porygon-Z had lower values in certain stats, despite its base stat total being higher than Porygon2's. —βetA ZerØ 01:36, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Ah. I guess I read too quickly to absorb that particular clause. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 02:33, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

The Official Pokémon Handbook

The TM doesn't learn the move, so the phrasing "learned by TM" is incorrect. ("Learn" and "teach" are not synonyms, despite what street slang tells you.) He traveled by train. We got there by any means necessary. Charizard learned Dig by means of a TM. "By" indeed can be used as "via," "from," or "with." Don't insult my intelligence. I will admit that, in rewording "learnable," I forgot to put "by means of TM", but I don't feel like I deserved to be condescendingly criticized for it. Have some respect for people who actually add content to the wiki. Oh, and Kenji-girl was being extremely lenient—don't ever wish someone violence because of their writing, even in jest. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest (talk) 23:31, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Okay, take two steps back from this conversation and breathe for a moment. It's just the Internet. Only on very rare occasions do I actually think less of someone for a grammatical mistake (and usually I will call them out by name); in this case, as in most cases, it's a teaching moment for the benefit of anyone who looks in the history, which is why I explain it instead of just silently correcting it. But if you want to think I'm being actively malicious and uppity, fine; there's nothing I can do about your mindset. (And I really shouldn't provoke you by replying to that last statement, but I have to bring it up - if you disapprove of Kenji-girl's lenience, bring it up with her. It's fruitless to say anything to me about it.) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 00:48, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
You clearly haven't learned your lesson since you expressed regret neither to her nor me. That behavior is unacceptable.
Fruitless? The whole point of this comment is to make you a better editor. I don't care that you corrected my grammar; I care that you put me down. I saw your other incident, so this is obviously an ongoing problem. Bulbapedia welcomes and thanks you for your contributions, just don't add superfluous commentary, whether you intend the attitude of your words or not. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest (talk) 08:08, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
