Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Bulbapedian!

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.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • 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.
  • 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:Bulbapedian/(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! --PsychicRider 20:00, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Please

Slow down on editing the User: namespace. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --Porygon-Z 01:44, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Talk page comments

Please don't erase talk page comments for no reason. Trust me, you do NOT want to end up like Big Johnno, who got into an edit war with a sysop over comments the former had erased and was trying to keep erased. That user ended up blocked and subsequently had every erased comment restored. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 00:05, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Anybody can remove them if they don't help the article. check it out.--KK llnn 00:29, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Your username

Makes me think of the word thespian. Just felt like saying. --DCM((TalkContributions)) 12:32, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm not MAGNEDETH…

…but I'll see if I can help. There are a few things you can do to help, but to begin, what are your areas of expertise? Games, anime, TCG, manga? --ニョロトノ666 23:32, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

For starters, try voting on these. Then, if you know a good amount of stuff about the Mystery Dungeon series, make some articles on elements of those games. The PMD series, particularily PMD2, is an area in which the 'pedia is sorely lacking. Make articles on the NPCs, etc. And the items. For instance, write an article on Grovyle (Mystery Dungeon 2). --ニョロトノ666 23:50, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Re:Talk page

I was going over this page and randomly decided to check out your contribs due to the fact that Ht said you were new, and I saw your talk page, and bla bla bla. As well, I usually reply on my talk page, but I'll reply on yours then. --The Kkllnnator blastoise 21:44, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

As well, if you go on to practically any other user's talk page, you'll probably see many lively conversations going on there. Now please, tell me, why did you screwed up those headers? --The Kkllnnator blastoise 21:00, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Well, try going here for more information. It's where I got the information to spice up my signature. If you have any questions, Jioruji Derako (The signature policy enforcer) is the person to ask. --The Kkllnnator blastoise 20:37, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Redirects

No, I already did those a few hours ago. Hey, not to be a grouch or anything, but I kinda wanted to finish those myself. You see, I've been doing these for hours, and I was sorta looking forward to finishing AG99 and being done, you know? Not having an edit conflict on AG66. I don't know about other users, but with me, if I'm in the middle of a project, I'd rather finish it myself. But that's okay, you didn't know. Thanks. --RexRacer -talk 20:55, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Disambigs

Please redirect to disambigs whenever possible. For example, Celebi instead of Celebi (Pokémon). But if there's no disambig, go ahead and redirect to the actual article. Thanks for the help! --The Kkllnnator カメックス 21:13, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Again, Grovyle is a disambig page. You want to redirect to that. It was better when you first created it. --The Kkllnnator カメックス 21:20, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Well,

No. You put #REDIRECT[[Grovyle]]. Disambigs are pages used when we have more than one article for a certain Pokémon. --The Kkllnnator カメックス 21:25, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Good job! But just so that you don't run into trouble upon reaching Zigzagoon, which is already a redirect, test to see if there's a disambig for the Pokémon you're redirecting to. Thanks! --The Kkllnnator カメックス 21:33, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
…Click here. See where it takes you. If there's no disambig page, link to the article! --The Kkllnnator カメックス 21:44, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm wondering, out of curiosity, where on the list of moves are you starting? --The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 20:57, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
OK. I'll inform LordArceus, since he's starting from the end of Sinnoh. --The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 21:00, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
I'd assume Beat Up… --The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 21:50, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Yay! Thanks for your help. --The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 16:32, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Yippee, we done abilities now! --Cassandra Teh Kkllnnator K 18:16, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

Way ahead of you. Merry Christmas, and thanks in advance for your help! --Cassandra Teh Kkllnnator K 18:20, 25 December 2008 (UTC)
Yay, it finally done! (i think) --Cassandra Teh Kkllnnator K 18:29, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

EPIC VICTORY

The only redirects we have left are from Shellder to Ho-oh! I'll start at Ho-oh and work down. --LordArceus 20:15, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

OMG! You guys got that far last night?! --The Kkllnnator カメックス 20:19, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Hey, man

What's the problem? You seem to be going a little crazy right now. --RexRacer -talk 22:08, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

He is. :/ I'm unsure why, but he posted the "don't delete talk page comments" subst on my talk page, then promptly deleted it. --LordArceus 22:10, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
I deleted it. You are allowed to delete your own comments, and you didn't deserve the warning. --RexRacer -talk 22:12, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. I'm glad you did, because I was about to go insane and start yelling at him; he wouldn't leave my page alone…:p --LordArceus 22:14, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry

About that "Victory is ours" thing. I was including you in that too, and I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings. And please don't blame LordArceus for the "jerk template" thing, I already had it on my page, and if you think it offends you, let me know and I'll remove it. Once again, I'm truly sorry. --The Kkllnnator カメックス 22:12, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

And if you were referring to this here, then he means this. --The Kkllnnator カメックス 22:18, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Are we friends again? --The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 21:50, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! --The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 21:55, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Empty lines

Why exactly are you adding them to those episode articles? There is no need for a newline between the text and the heading, and as it doesn't change the way the page looks, it still grows the article's size. --UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 21:58, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Check it

{{User Windows Internet Explorer}} - unsigned comment from DCM (DCMcontribs) 00:44, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

It says DCM on his talk page link ↑. Is it suppose to say that?--The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 23:50, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
No, what I meant was, it says, - unsigned comment from DCM (→→→DCM←←← • contribs) 00:44, 19 December 2008 (UTC) . --The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 23:57, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Here, let's see…- unsigned comment from Kkllnn (talkcontribs) 23:59, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
I think t'was his sig. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 00:03, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Actually, what I did was temporarily use a subst'd version of {{unsigned}} as my signature.--The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 00:04, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
I don't know what subst stands for… Maybe someone else *nudges TTEchidna* will know… And I guess my previous question was answered… I'm not sure. --The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 00:11, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

But I want them to say that… --The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 03:13, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Dude…

There's no point in making edits just to space out text from a star. So please don't do it; it puts stress on the server, and we don't want the site to crash. --Chocolate (Merry Christmas!) 23:33 12/19/2008
Umm, you said that you understood, but you just made an edit only for spacing again. --Chocolate (Merry Christmas!) 23:45 12/19/2008

you did it again The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 19:30, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Usertags

Your user page was categorised with the user tags. In future, please link to tags like: {{User Likes Blue}} rather than copying the code from the page. Thank you. Gywall Talk 20:44, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

I just put subst: into the template, and that made it result in the written-out tags. --Bulbapedian - Talk 02:30, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Check the userspace policy

It's been updated.--RexRacer -talk 00:43, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Nope, I do not know…

Sorry, I'm not a coding person. I steal all of my coding. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 18:38, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Bullets

spaces go after bullets. -- MAGNEDETH 19:38, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

btw, itd be a lot easier if you just respond to something where it is, like right here, it keeps the convo in one place, rather than spreading it on two different pages. -- MAGNEDETH 19:54, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Really

Are those Kana redirects so needed? It's an English Pedia, I'm pretty sure that NO ONE would search for something by typing the Japanese name in Kana in our Pedia's search engine. A Japanese guy who stumbled upon our pedia? Naive thought! --Maxim 20:01, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

I go to the German pedia sometimes to look up info, it's very nice to be able to search the English name and get the page I want. -- MAGNEDETH 20:03, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
granted, i just noticed, redirecting to minor characters, no, we dont need that. -- MAGNEDETH 20:05, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

I can take correction

Thank you for telling me about the no signing rule. That was very nice of you to help a newcomer. You rock! --Lapras 02:00, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Sure. --Bulbapedian - Talk 02:04, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Signature

No sprites allowed.--RexRacer -talk 23:33, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

That wasn't my signature. I was pointing to Darkrai in accordance to my comment. --Bulbapedian - Talk 23:34, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

No.

{{g}} puts Pokémon in front of the variable. {{ga}} puts (game) after it. And finally, {{game}} puts Pokémon before it and Version after it, with a second variable to turn Version into Versions. Three different templates, three different uses. --((Marton imos)) 22:45, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Just Letting You Know

Your user tags say that Kanto is your favorite region, yet the pic is of Johto. --HoennMaster 14:21, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, I've fixed it. --Bulbapedian - Talk 15:48, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Re:Hi

um…yeah. What exactly do you mean by "Platinum updates"? --freezingCOLD (page, talk) 02:15, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Basically, things me, among others can do to update the site after the release of Pokémon Platinum Version. --Bulbapedian - Talk 20:06, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure…--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 19:19, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, then TTE, please see this message (Wink, wink). I cannot seem to message you. --Bulbapedian - Talk 19:26, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Auto-welcome

Is something that we've been talking about doing. I believe that the general consensus is "no", but I could be wrong.--RexRacer 20:19, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

That's seems extraneous. It can't be done, why? Oh, and Rex, congrats on adminship. --Bulbapedian - Talk 21:11, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
