Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, BAC510!

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! Tina δ281 23:08, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Weakness

first off, Magnet Rise can be given to any Electric-type Pokemon in Platinum. second, Sableye was the first Pokemon to have no weakness. third, link templates!! use them!! -- MAGNEDETH 01:39, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Episodes

We don't link by episode title. We link italicized by episode code, with the text being the title. Team Shocker!. TTEchidna 21:29, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Protected pages

The only people who can edit those are administrators. If you ever come across something like this, leave a new comment on the article's talk page with the header "edit request". Thanks. — THE TROM — 03:16, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Chikorita}} instead of just [[Chikorita]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. --PsychicRider 20:27, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Again, please use link templates. Use {{p|Rhyperior}} instead of [[Rhyperior]].--Dark ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 16:08, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Episodes focusing on...

Please don't. We have those for the main characters, having it for each and every one of their Pokémon is a little pointless. Also, more importantly, that is not how use use a category. You don't list the pages on the category page, you categorize though the pages you want to put in the category. Just look at the bottom of any page's code to see how it's done. --electAbuzzzz 21:58, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

About SoulShipping

You didn't make it up. The shipping for Ash and Kotone was named even before Kotone's name was revealed. It's called PokéSilverShipping. In fact, SoulShipping is already being used for Sabrina and Morty. So you shouldn't have a worry about someone stealing the credit, because you have no credit to claim. You should really consult ArcToraphim if you are unsure of a shipping name. --ケンジガール 16:43, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Tip

If you believe something should be hidden, just do it yourself instead of creating of continuing to mention it on all of the Lake trio's talk pages. --ケンジガール 19:55, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

If I were an Admin I could hide Azelf, Uxie, and Mesprit myself, since the Pages are locked and cant be edited. Thats why I cant do it myself. User:BAC510 19:57, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi

I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Heavy editing of these personal pages can put undue stress on the server, so please leave your page alone for now and go help out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so please help us to complete it! If you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit your userpage more often too. Thanks! ----rockersk08 00:08, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Personal images

Yep, thanks, remember, photobucket is wonderful, post any other ones you have there, and use the url here. It keeps the archives clean, and also gives you unlimited images. MaverickNate 06:08, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

    • I am going to The 2 that are on my User Page minus the Soulsilver one. User:BAC510 05:59 December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Userspace

Please slow down on the edits. Thanks. CuboneKing 05:57, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Why does he/she have the same IP as you? --ケンジガール 22:30, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Tonarino Town

We're going to wait until the episode airs (or the town is mentioned in the anime). I mean I've seen the magazine scan that mentions the town, yeah, but hey they could have typed トナリノタウン but meant to type 隣の町 or something. Somehow. 梅子 04:39, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

your edit

I wasn't undoing it. In fact, I haven't reverted over half of your edits. I just hid it, as it hasn't been confirmed yet. It's better to be safe than sorry. Also, I made Anime anime as it isn't a proper noun. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 00:15, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Okay couple things

One, trivia for the sake of trivia is bad. Condense that stuff. We don't need three trivia points when we could have one. Two, Normal-type. Not Normal Type. And linked as Normal-type, not Normal-type. TTEchidna 23:40, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

New episode articles

The next time you create a new episode article, please use the {{DP episode}} template, using the following code: {{subst:DP episode|(Episode number)|(Broadcast date)|(Japanese title)|(Translated title)}}. Also, I would advise against copying off Pocketmonsters.net, as we're not on very good terms with that site. Quagbert 18:50, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

linebreaks

Please do not use multiple line breaks to line up stuff. Use {{-}} or something similar. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 03:40, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Source, please

Where did these titles come from? --ケンジガール 08:04, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about that: http://tv.msn.com/tv/episodeguide.aspx?series=62d49308-0244-4703-a474-64fe2b1a7a8b&ipp=40 BAC510 08:08, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Thank ya! --ケンジガール 08:18, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Trivia

Please read the top notice and don't add any trivia, we're discouraging users to do so due to the gigantic amount of quite useless trivia spread around the encyclopedia. Masatoshitalk 04:33, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! -- G50 07:11, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Episode page creation

When creating a page for a new episode, please use this template instead of copy/pasting the information. The template uses these parameters: {{subst:New episode|<episode number>|<airing date>|Title in Japanese|Translation}}.

For example: {{subst:New episode|16|February 13, 2014|デデンネがピチューでピチューがデデンネで…!?|Dedenne is Pichu and Pichu is Dedenne...!?}} would be used for XY016. G50 07:11, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
