This is a template for easier linking to Pokémon articles dealing with the actual creatures — since those articles should be named like Bulbasaur (Pokémon), this article makes it easier to create this link.

To use this, type this:

{{p|Name of Pokémon}}

This works because {{{1}}} is presented as a variable, and this template generates what you right in the "Name of Pokémon area" as the {{{1}}}, thus creating the proper link.

There is a second optional parameter which allows the editor to specify the visible words of the link (in other words, the text actually shown). For example, {{p|Mr. Mime|Mimey}} gives Mimey.

Just because it's not harmful, {{p}} produces just the word [[{{{1}}} (Pokémon)|{{{1}}}]]. If you're going to do that, it's probably best to substitute it, like so: {{subst:p}}. This leaves only the final result in the source code.
