Welcome to Bulbapedia, Wowy!

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:Wowy/(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 01:41, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Gym Leaders' Pokémon

Please, we only need one Pokémon from a leader (excluding Brock and Misty). Most of these Pokémon are not notable for an article and they wouldn't have substantial informtion to be a good one. Roark, for example, already has a page for his Rampardos. Please refrain from creating any more. MoldyOrange 01:50, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

design basis article

hey, man, what's up? listen, we're creating a lot of edit conflicts in our edits... you mind giving me an hour to work on this article? I'm trying to do something. Waiting for your reply before I keep going. Thanx. --electAbuzzzz (TALK) 09:42, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Talk page comments

NEVER remove comments from your talk page. --ケンジガール 06:49, 8 August 2008 (UTC) ahah...--Wowy 06:51, 8 August 2008 (UTC) but no one told me... does it mean i can get rid of that top bit???

New pages

When creating them, um, make more substance, and of course... categorize it. TTEchidna 06:36, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

What does it mean to categorize it...only trying to help--Wowy 06:36, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Okay, look at a page like Fiore. Notice how at the bottom there's categories, right? You put them in by putting [[Category:(whatever)]] at the bottom. Look what I did to the page you just made, and just make sure to do that so others don't have to. No page BUT the Main Page should be uncategorized. TTEchidna 06:41, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks :)--Wowy 06:43, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

But 의 romanized as "e" is not a part of any conventional Romanization schemes (we use only conventional ones, no custom schemes, same with Japanese [we use Hepburn] and Chinese [we use PinYin]) and "e" also creates ambiguities. --Maxim 14:55, 29 August 2008 (UTC)


If you like Lugia, you can become a member of the Lugia fan club! (check out my usertags for a link)--Fern 24 11:41, 5 September 2008 (UTC) Welcome Wowy i am Pokemonboy a member of the lugia fan club just wanted to give you a warm welcome at the club. Pokemonboy 16:47, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Dude, use the preview button. Those poor servers are gonna crash and you wont be able to edit your page at all. so please, tone it down. Mooites 04:06, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for correcting me. Forgot about it.--Diby 10:58, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

No worries --Wowy 11:00, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use them... See shortlinks. Thanks.--Diby 12:19, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

oh ok... i thought i did but anyways thanx it reminded me at least :):):)--Wowy 12:21, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

When fixing up the tutoring... can't just move the "yes" and "no" to the end. Look at how Swampert was done. You have to add additional "no"s for DP and Pt's entries. See the talk page. TTEchidna 03:22, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

I think i just noticed... thats y i was just gonna change for lugia... but thanks for directing me to the page!!!! XD--Wowy 03:24, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
and i just noticed lugia was done to...--Wowy 03:26, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
If you're gonna do this, see here. Porygon-Z 03:28, 13 September 2008 (UTC)


I'm trying to help find pictures that are needed but can someone someone tell me how to upload pictures...? I'm having trouble...--Wowy 05:58, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Link in the toolbox to the left that says "upload file." It'll take you to the Archives and walk you through the process. --((Marton imos)) 07:40, 1 October 2008 (UTC)


All new articles need to be categorized. I could care less if such an article is an incomplete list, it still needs to be categorized. --Shiningpikablu252 03:06, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

ok--Wowy 03:07, 9 October 2008 (UTC)


Sure you can use the picture.--Coolピカチュウ! 04:59, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

See Kogoro's talk page.--Tavisource 06:17, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
y?--Wowy 06:19, 21 October 2008 (UTC)


As far as I've seen, you've had the same Pokémon of the Week for many weeks. Also, coincidentally, I have a Steel-type: Skarmory. SharKing Productions 03:20, 2 February 2009 (UTC)


Not... macron. ē and é are vastly different. TTEchidna 10:51, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
