Bulbapedia:List of link templates

Bulbapedia's policy with linking is to make certain the consistency of related pages; for example, while there is no other thing known as Fire Blast, the move Fire Blast is located at Fire Blast (move). This is so that there is consistency with linking to articles on moves, as some, like Psychic, share their name with another aspect of Pokémon.

While more often, this would be easily done simply by linking the article as [[Fire Blast (move)|Fire Blast]], this requires much tedious punctuation, with vertical pipes and parentheses typed over and over for a Pokémon's moveset. For this reason, link templates were created, which allow anyone to link to an article with a certain suffixed or prefixed word, and link the article as its base name. Fire Blast is linked as {{m|Fire Blast}}, so that it appears as Fire Blast.

Although link templates are encouraged in day-to-day usage, it is asked that they are only used for the intended purpose. Any use otherwise may be considered a "laziness template". For example, consider writing [[Pokémon Trainer]] instead of {{g|Trainer}}. Usage of laziness templates will be reverted, and offenders will be warned.
