Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, TheGrammarian!

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.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can 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 captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). 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 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.
  • 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! TESHIGIGAS 16:18, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

You think those were bad?

Just wait till you see edits by really useless new editors. 493OptimatumTalk|13:28 12 Mar 2008

Oh yeah, seriously man. You will shudder when you see something like Bawile... TTEchidnaFire echy 01:47, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
You have a point. I do not like that person at all. TheGrammarian 22:19, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Moves in the anime

No, no. We have a special format for the In the anime section on move pages. Please see Bulbapedia:Project MoveDex. Thank you. --Theryguy512 20:53, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

More travesty

It seems that due to the behavior of certain self-centered individuals, I am no longer able to edit my userpage. However, I will still give examples of the grammatical atrocities plaguing this site here. TheGrammarian 22:19, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

  • "Pokémon USA used the special that will aired on April 29, The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon, as a testing ground for the new voice actors."
