Welcome to Bulbapedia, MatchMaster!

By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Anime Move Edits

need more of a description then just the Pokémon's name. Please improve the quality of such edits. Thank you.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 00:24, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

I know. I am in the United States, so I can't see the newly-released episodes. I just put those there as fillers. MatchMaster 00:47, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Sidegame Template

Please stop editing it, it is a high use template, any changes should be posted on its talk page for someone with more knowledge of the template to fix it. It should actually be protected, but yeah, everytime you edit it, the server needs to update every page on which it occurs. --Spriteit (talk) 14:35, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

I apologize. It's fixed now. I'll keep that in mind next time I see a problem with a template I don't quite understand. MatchMaster (talk) 14:37, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
You found a problem we didn't, no need to be sorry, just keep in mind for high use ones (they will generally be protected), but since that templates on almost every Pokémon page, we try not to change it too much. --Spriteit (talk) 14:42, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Pokédex Entries

Hello. I noticed you've been adding English entries for the Black 2 and White 2 Pokédexes. I was wondering if you could tell me how you were translating the Japanese. That is, by yourself, using the Pokédex 3D Pro, or using Google translate? Or something else entirely? Thanks! Crystal Talian 04:47, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

I've been using google translate, and I know someone who can put the translation into what makes sense in English. I've been checking it from Serebii.net's translation, but it isn't really stealing from it. MatchMaster (Talk | Contribs) 14:28, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know. However, while the effort to add the English entries is appreciated, I've been asked to remove them for now because of the method used. Checking translations with Serebii is like referencing Serebii, which I'm afraid we aren't allowed to do here. Also, we aren't supposed to rely on using solely Google translate. It's preferred that Google translate is used to assist in translating (if it is used at all), as opposed to doing all the translating for you. Crystal Talian 02:54, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
