Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Gligar!

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:Gligar/(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 17:02, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Colosseum Walkthrough

Do you actually intend to write it? --ニョロトノ666 00:05, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm actually in the process of writing the first part of it right now. Gligar 00:08, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Looks decent, but avoid phrases such as "noob." Thanks. --ニョロトノ666 01:06, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Have u ever thought of doing the party table seen on anime character pages?--KukiTalk 00:30, 21 August 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 15:16, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

It doesn't mean go make more, it means stop for today. Porygon-Z 15:20, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
Quit making damn accusations and see what I just did. Gligar 15:21, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
It's not about what kind of edits you make, it's the amount. Please limit yourself to 3 per day. Trust me, you don't want to lose the ability to edit the user space like we all did for a few months. Porygon-Z 15:22, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
And alll of the pictures of Gligar and Gliscor is bad.Very BadGood Day;DCM
And I'm pretty sure that we dont want a Walkthrough of games on this site, its a pedia, not a gamfaqsGood Day;DCM
Yeah we do, they're great in the Appendix space. Porygon-Z 15:26, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

That most recent edit was trying to make both of you happy.

Just one question out of curiosity: Why is there a dayly limit instead of a balance limit? Say, if we edit the mainspace 10 times, we get an edit or two in the userspace (just an example)? Gligar 15:32, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Well I'm not really the one to ask. Try this guy. Porygon-Z 15:34, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
No.You can only edit the User Space three times.aNd you cant have images in your sigGood Day;DCM
You seem to be in a good mood, DCM. Say, I have seen many a respected user with images in their sig. But rules are rules, no matter how rudely they're given. Gligar 15:38, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
Those images were from the past, before the signature policy was enacted.Good Day;DCM
Well that's in the past now. -> Gligar 15:56, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Mystery Dungeon 1 Dungeons

I've already taken care of inserting the DungeonPrevNext code onto them (although I used primarily the order on the game's dungeon selection list and not the order on Pokémon World (Mystery Dungeon). --Shiningpikablu252 20:03, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. Personally, I don't see the problem if one game gets the article's list and one game gets the game's list, as they're for the most part the same thing, minus extra dungeons. Gligar 20:19, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

redlinks

I would prefer if you didn't have those links on your talk page because Appendix talk: links will appear on the Wanted pages, even though I really don't think they should. I know this will make it harder for you to check them, but could you possibly remove them? MoldyOrange 22:43, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Watev. Gligar 22:44, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Re-Route

for something so straightforward, you need to define its location. especially after the page gets filled up. -- MAGNEDETH 23:37, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, to tell you the truth I knew beforehand, but I was thinking of editing them when the sections actually existed. Gligar 23:38, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

"Should there be a multitude of these or very little?"

There should be very, very, very few. MoldyOrange 22:48, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Gotcha. Gligar 23:03, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Edits

The one running the site doesn`t exactly need a warning. Feel free to give him one if you wanna. +Porygon-Z

I'm not saying it's a problem, I'm just saying it's not setting a good example (although his userspace edits are usually awesome). Gligar 00:00, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Hyper Bean

Hehe, that was even better than my mistake yesterday on a Nidoking. I accidentally had Thrash as "Trash" - Kogoro | Talk to me | 20:03, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Nice. Gligar 20:04, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

GB Theme decks

that is not the currect style. Also, those pages will no longer have that information on the character pages anymore, they will be on seperate pages. Furthermore, we are currently discussing on how to improve what we have for GB, and we are not editting those until we come to a desicion. Don't do anymore. MoldyOrange 17:37, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

I gotcha, I have a bad tendency to act before looking into stuff. But without their decks, even as they are, all their pages will most likely be stubs. Gligar 17:40, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
That is also one of the problems we are working on...if you would like to see what we currently have for future pages for the theme decks, see Etc. Deck (TCG). MoldyOrange 17:42, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
All of those decks do exist, they are gotten through the Auto Deck Machine. Please research a little more before you add them, or maybe ask the person who made it (me)...because that template was originally for the Auto decks and not the ones the people had. MaverickNate 23:04, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Pay attention to what decks are in the Auto Deck Machine, not all of them are, only the ones on the Auto Deck Machine page are, pay attention to what you write, because Blistering Pokémon Deck (TCG) i not one of them. Also, do you have AIM, we need to talk. MaverickNate 18:58, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
About what? I'm sure it can all be said here. And Blistering Pokémon Deck (TCG) is a deck all its own, even if not an Auto Deck deck, it's a club member deck, worth noting. Gligar 19:00, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Also, when linking to the names of the players who use the decks, make sure that you're not linking to a disambiguation page. For example, just plain Ryan is a disambiguation page; the character you want has his article at Club Member Ryan and should be written out as a piped link ([[Club Member Ryan|Ryan]]). --Shiningpikablu252 19:08, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

I was not saying that those ones aren't notable, I was talking about how you just copy paste text from one thing to another. Not all of them are from the deck machine, but you aren't changing the text you are copying, and you say they are all from the machine, when they aren't. Just pay more attention to if they are or aren't, I'll set up a new style for the table to seperate all the ones that are and all the ones that aren't. MaverickNate 21:25, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
You sound like you're accusing me of not changing the pasting at all, when I change virtually everything except that. There are only a few Decks that are not Auto Decks that I added, and it's not the end of the world that I missed getting rid of one thing. But, yeah, that's not gonna happen again... Gligar 21:28, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

About the party template...

The colors... well, make a judgment about what it should be. Like, for example, Dahlia should be Battle Roulette yellow, since she's the Brain from there. Some of them you'd be completely pulling at straws to get... but most should have a definite color theme... Rock Gym Leaders get {{rock color}}, and so on and so forth. As for animated sprites... well... I think it'd be better if we waited for anipngs of them all, or just used the static sprites. TTEchidna 03:58, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Oh also, if you need a Swinub, any ol' Swinub, I can trade you an egg likely next weekend. It's still pending though. TTEchidna 04:00, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
You can have a Mr. Mime or a Bronzong, or you can see what else I got if you ask. Also, I think animated sprites should stay and then get replaced.- unsigned comment from Gligar (talkcontribs)
