Hello. Please leave new messages at the bottom.

Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Pokedex493!

Here are a few links to help you get started:

The Manual of Style, or MoS, outlines the format of all pages on Bulbapedia.

Our friendly team of staff are here to help! Talk to them if you have any questions or problems with Bulbapedia.

On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~), or by using the "Your signature with a timestamp" (button_sig.png) button at the top of the edit window.

On Bulbapedia, the ability to edit personal userpages is a privilege. Per our userpage policy, this must be earned by first making constructive edits to the mainspace. Once you can, remember to keep userspace edits (edits to User:Pokedex493) to a minimum.

For a complete list of policies and editing advice, please see the Welcome Portal.
 Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Question for all people who sees this

I've been screwing up a lot on Bulbapedia, and I was wanting to know, how do you memorize the Manual of Style?

It's like school, really; Study it hard and you'll have it down in no time! :D CuboneKing 22:52, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Another Question

How do I become an administrator?

Sorry about that. That was a few months ago and now I know how to become one. Pokedex493 00:40, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Sad Notice

The whole point of me joining Bulbapedia was I thought it would be fun to share my knowledge with other people, but because of some of these rules, that fun is gone. I've ruined most people's lives and I try too hard to become an administrator, which made me blocked from editing my Userspace, so, I may be leaving Bulbapedia. Put on this Talk Page if you want me to leave or if you don't and your reason why. Whatever has the most votes will be my decision. Until I get a full voting, I will be contributing and try to get my priviledges back. Pokedex493 17:27, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

I have officially decided that I won't leave Bulbapedia. I was a fool to think that, because doing this stuff is fun. I'm making new friends, I'm sharing my knowledege with many people, and people will listen to me. This is a lesson to learn for people who are thinking about leaving. Pokedex493 22:37, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

é

Pokémon is spelt with an e-acute, or é. You can type this by pressing Alt+130 on the number pad of your keyboard (if you have one), or by using the character palette below the editbox.--Cold (talk) 22:23, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Link Templates

Nice to see you're using link templates, but they require two {'s and not one. Victini, not {p|Victini}. See the difference?--Cold (talk) 16:16, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Talk page

Please do not add personal content to your talk page, as user talk pages are only meant for communications with the user it belongs to. In time, if you make contstructive edits to Bulbapedia's encyclopedic pages, you will earn the ability to make a user page where you can put all your personal content. Btw, the scientific name for the fear of dolls is called "pediophobia". --ZestyCactus 18:02, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

also when getting a message on your Talk page...reply on your Talk page.....also don't sign your comments after forgetting to sign them..messes up the time or something Ataro 22:30, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Your hack games

Your hack games and everything in them are not notable. Firstly, only extremely notable hack games are even mentioned, since they are actually illegal. This also means that unreleased hack games are never notable. Secondly, subjects such as that should never be added to pages by their creator or a close friend. Doing so is considered advertising, and is not allowed. Please do not add them to pages any more, or you may be faced with a block. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 22:18, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Sonic the Hedgehog? Seriously...this is a Pokemon Site...you can't just call Sonic a Pokemon just because he appears in a hack game if you could then the entire Touhou cast would have their own pages Ataro 22:25, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Resigning Posts

If you forget to sign the first time don't go back and add your signature afterwards. It messes up the timestamp and makes it hard to see who said what to who and when they said it. If you do forget to sign your post instead put {{unsigned|Pokedex493}} which will display as - unsigned comment from Pokedex493 (talkcontribs) . Though of course you should always try to sign your posts the first time. Thank you for your time.—Beligaronia (talk) 22:49, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Okay. Sorry. I'm new here so I don't know everything about this site. Pokedex493 22:51, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Posting on talk pages

Talk pages are not for posting your opinions on something, or discussing the subject as if it was a forum thread. They're there for people to discuss the article itself and how to improve it. For more info, see this page, please. ▫▫ティナ 19:27, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

"Blake Kick"

Rather can creating the article for a misspelling, could you please fix the link? By doing that, it'll go off the wanted pages by tomorrow. If there is no link, just leave it alone. Thanks, Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 20:04, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Hey,

You're not doing a horrible job. While I admit you might not be doing as well as you could be, I've certainly seen worse. You're new here, and new users are bound to make mistakes sometimes. Hell, when I started out, I made nothing but mistakes. Just give the MOS a read if you haven't already, keep on editing what you feel needs changing, and you'll be fine. Everything people have told you you were doing wrong so far? It's to help you become a better editor in the future. Don't take it too hard.--Cold (talk) 20:20, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day. This policy was instated to prevent strain on our server, and also to promote people helping out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! ----Cold (talk) 20:21, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Using your talk page as a substitute for your userpage/personal content is against the userspace policy so I would suggest you leave your talk page alone. Talk pages are for discussion about Bulbapedia only. Thanks. Jellotalk 21:24, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
I'd just like to remind you about this, since you are still using your talk page as a substitute for your userpage. Doing so is against the userspace policy; talk pages are for discussion about Bulbapedia only. --SnorlaxMonster 00:17, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace too much. In the past, no one was allowed to edit their userpages because some users were over-editing their own userpages. Your personal editing privileges can be taken away, so please do not edit your page any more for now. Instead, how about helping contribute to some of Bulbapedia's many articles? Thank you. -- Jellotalk 19:23, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Re: Welcome

I do thank you for your welcoming message. How rude of me not to reply to you right away. --OminousWind 10:52, 24 December 2010 (UTC) Your welcome. I'm doing as best as I can. I wish you luck on editing. Pokedex493 00:55, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Userspace rights

You are now in abuse due to your constant edits to the userspace. In the meantime, please contribute to Bulbapedia. Thanks! --CoolPikachu! 03:18, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Exactly how long am I blocked from editing my Userspace? Pokedex493 03:33, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
I won't give an amount of time. It depends on your behavior and contribution to Bulbapedia as a whole. --CoolPikachu! 08:53, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon Apokelypse

Sorry, but there already is one being made Ataro 04:39, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

"you"

Please refrain from using "you" in articles as it is encyclopedic. Jellotalk 22:38, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

HI~

I DONT KNOW WHAT IM DOING AT ALL XD I have alot of studying to do.. HiddingMissingno

Hello

I have a question regarding your recent edits to Ash Ketchum and Dawn (anime), did a user email you to ask you to add that? --P S Yライダー 18:13, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Yeah. Why? Pokedex493 18:18, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
And also, the person who e-mailed me was Rokuto. Pokedex493 18:19, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Well, that user is Falk, and he's been permabanned from Bulbapedia due to various reasons, and you editing for him is helping him get around it, it's called ban evading. So please don't do it again as it is a blockable offense. Thank you. --P S Yライダー 18:21, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Okay, what about the errors that he accidently deleted? Can I put those in? Pokedex493 18:23, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
No, Kenji-girl removed them and they shouldn't be put back in. --P S Yライダー 18:24, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Okay. Thank you for letting me know. Pokedex493 18:25, 12 April 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 Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! ----Pokemaster97 22:40, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Pokedex649

Care to explain why this user who shares a remarkably similar name to you also shares your IP address? Werdnae (talk) 23:40, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

That's my brother. I swear that is not me. He forgot his password and he didn't know he can change the password. I tried talking him out of using that name because I knew people would question me about it. Pokedex493 01:21, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Note about the "Moves not in the games" page

On many of the cards, the attack names were not translated as what they are called in the game. I noticed that Ice Throw from Misty's Dewgong was on the list, even though its Japanese name is that of Ice Shard. I'm not sure if you were the one who added this, but just be aware that situations like this will occur. They should all be listed in the card's origin section, though, so it is easy to see when they are. Good job on filling in that page. MaverickNate 22:52, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. Ever since I sent an application to be a junior administrator, I've been working as hard as I can. Pokedex493 22:54, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Lego Pets

Er...mistake, I hit enter before I could finish my summary. Those pets aren't Pokémon, nor do they look like Pokémon. It's not related to Pokémon. So it doesn't need a page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 08:33, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

I was just wanting to make a page due to some of them had VERY distinct similarities. The reindeer was very similar to the winter Sawsbuck and the skeleton dragon looked very much like Reshiram, but if you say it shouldn't be on here, I trust you with that. Pokedex493 08:35, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Warning Other Users

Hello. When you ask another user to stop a certain behavior, please let them know specifically what it is they are doing wrong. Simply saying "stop doing that" or "stop doing this" is not very helpful. The person you are trying to help may not understand what it is they are doing wrong. Please, tell them what the problem is and try to leave some helpful advice for them. Thank you. Crystal Talian 04:48, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry. I just got back from a long hiatus and I'm not quite used to being back yet. Pokedex493 (talk) 14:58, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Moves not in the Pokémon games

Make sure you are reading the origin sections for each card you list. This card's attack is an Ability, and should not be listed as on the moves not in the games page. Everything else who's Japanese name matches anything from any game (including things like Warrior Skills, Abilities, XD and Mystery dungeon exclusive moves, items, etc) should not be listed. MaverickNate 22:38, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Okay. I was not informed of this when I started working on the page, so thanks for letting me know. Pokedex493 (talk) 22:46, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Before you get any further

We're not changing the move pages to acknowledge the Fairy type retcons yet because the move pages only cover Generations 1-5 at the moment. When they are updated to account for Gen 6, then the retcons will be added to them. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 03:59, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Oh that explains why none of them were changed. Okay, thanks for letting me know.

EX Series Card

Hey can you find the move not in games for EX Series Cards? because in there it's required (as it's says on the article)--Rolandpokémon (talk) 08:44, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

I've been meaning to get around to that but I've been helping the other editors with getting the X/Y information together. I'll be able to focus on the list after. Thanks for pointing that out. Pokedex493 (talk) 20:54, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Gen VI renames on cards

The reason many of them aren't done yet is because the cards have never consistently had the same format as the games. In card canon, an attack named "Thundershock" is not the same as an attack named "Thunder Shock". I haven't exactly figured out how the wording in origin sections should be for these cases, and I need to still get a few official answers to some questions before we do anything about it. I'll move it up on my agenda because it really should be done. That's just the reasoning behind why the relinks on cards has been put off for so long. MaverickNate 22:11, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Ah okay. Thanks for letting me know. I'll leave them alone for now then. Pokedex493 (talk) 22:25, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
