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!

Crustle and Dig

Just because Cilan's Crustle burrowed into the ground does not always mean that it used Dig. For an analogy: a ton of Flying types were seen flying in various media, but that's because they can fly naturally, not because they know the move Fly. Instead of adding it back and sparking an edit war, try bringing it up on the article's Talk Page instead. Thank you. Berrenta (talk) 17:39, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Tracey's Marill

Please don't add back the Fairy typing on Tracey's Marill. Because it hasn't appeared since the Fairy type has been revealed, it does not need to be changed. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 22:38, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Edit warring

Hello, I've noticed that you've been constantly re-adding content that has been removed several times by staff and other editors in general. This is considered edit warring, which is a blockable offense on Bulbapedia. Because of the amount of times you've already been edit warring today, continuing to edit war without discussion will lead to a temporary block from editing. Please keep this in mind during the future. Thank you. --Pokemaster97 22:49, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Jessie's Woobat

Please do not remove the notice about the Woobat trivia. It is there to warn users not to add it because it is unnotable. Also, please do not revert a user (especially an admin), if you disagree with the reversion bring it up to the talk page of the article. Thank you for reading.--ForceFire 02:50, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Fairy-type Pokemon on move pages

Please be more careful when you're adding the Fairy type to Pokemon on move pages. If the subsection (usually tutored or event moves) does not cover Generation VI, the Pokemon should not be listed as Fairy-type, since they weren't at any point that the subsection covers. It's the same reason that, above, Funktastic asked you not to change Tracey's Marill to Fairy-type. Thanks for your understanding. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 17:38, 24 December 2013 (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 and make sure you contribute to our mainspace more than your userspace. This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our server. 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! --Den Zen 18:02, 28 January 2014 (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. --Den Zen 18:21, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

I did see it. I stopped as soon as I did.Chy-i (talk) 01:15, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Your userpage

I noticed you copied it from my userpage, so when did you copy it, and if you don't know, I'll contact an active admin. --Cinday123 (Talk) 03:51, 8 February 2014 (UTC) I did it a few weeks ago. I'm sorry if its a problem I will change it if immediately.Chy-i (talk) 14:16, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! --It's Funktastic~!話してください 21:42, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the info, will not happen again.Chy-i (talk) 21:47, 26 April 2014 (UTC)


Like the trivia said, they were implied to be male because of the pronouns they used that are commonly used by males. This does not mean that it is a straight up confirmation of their gender. I don't know if the staff of the past had any discussions about this, but seeing as how they've never added the gender and stuck it in the trivia, I'm guessing that they didn't count the implications as their genders being confirmed.--ForceFire 12:13, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Far-reaching changes

If you want to make a structural edit that will affect a wide range of pages, as you did to many Trainers' Pokemon in the anime recently, it's usually best to suggest it on a talk page first rather than just do it, so you can get feedback on whether it's a good idea. That way, you don't waste your time making a bunch of edits that get undone, and somebody else doesn't waste their time undoing all those edits. Thanks! Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:13, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Userspace pages

Make sure when you're making templates or any type of userspace pages, you start the page with User:Rahl/ , or otherwise you'll make the page in the mainspace where it doesn't belong. I've moved your page for you. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 20:02, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. I didn't know how to fix it.Chy-i (talk) 20:52, 23 June 2014 (UTC)


Due to your numerous edits to your Gym Leader user page today, your userspace privileges have been revoked. You edited the page 16 times even though you're allowed to make only three userspace edits per day (provided that you've made four mainspace edits). And while the EB may give special permissions if the page in question is intended for mainspace, your page looks more like personal stuff just for fun.

You can request an admin to give you your rights back if you think you've redeemed yourself by being helpful on the mainspace.--Den Zen 17:56, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Your Gym Leader userpage

I had to go through and remove some redlinks on that page, as they have appeared in the Wanted pages. There were also some redirects, but it's mostly redlinks. Be sure to check to see if you intend to create links to pages that do not exist. If the page in question will exist later on, that's fine, but if not, either remove them or replace the link with one to a relevant page that does exist. Also, try not to get the templates {{color}} and {{color2}} confused: the latter creates a link in that color, while the former just colors the text. Just letting you know. Berrenta (talk) 01:35, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Alright, thank you very much.Chy-i (talk) 01:36, 30 June 2014 (UTC)


Anime ≠ Games. In the anime, Pokémon have been able to use more that 4 moves at once in one episode, like Ash's Kingler and Misty's Gyarados and Caserin. Also, In Cilan Takes Flight, Cilan's Pansage still knew Bite even when in earlier episodes, he used Bullet Seed, Solar Beam, Dig and Rock Tomb. --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 05:46, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

While that has happened, Fletchinder has only been seen using Flame Charge. Since it learned a new move it more than likely lost one of those four moves. As soon as it is seen using them then it can be added.Rahl (talk) 01:18, 28 July 2014 (UTC)


We only add in genders for Pokémon who are confirmed to have them, including the ones who are normally genderless. PattyMan 20:04, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Dub titles

Hello, please stop adding the dub titles for now. They are not 100% confirmed yet (unless you have a source that proves otherwise). Adyniz has said "consider these unconfirmed for now" on the forums. ☼ BlazingFist ☼ 16:27, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't know about that sorry. I will stop until its confirmed.Rahl (talk) 16:33, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

It's ok. I've undone all of your dub title edits for now. It's best to wait until a staff member adds the titles or until the official Bulbagarden twitter account posts the titles. Unless of course you have a good source that confirms the titles, you can always let a staff member know. ☼ BlazingFist ☼ 16:37, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Anime appearances

Who told you to go adding a new section to the anime appearances and give some Pokémon their own section? What's the difference in an "other" appearance that isn't "major" or "minor" in nature? -- MAGNEDETH 16:09, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

You mean with Magnemite and Magneton?Rahl (talk) 17:11, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
No, all of them. I just happened to notice those two. -- MAGNEDETH 15:40, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
Some of them just happened to have a lot that said major when they weren't all that important. I figured organizing it a little bit would be helpful.Rahl (talk) 17:26, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
That's fine, but if it isn't major, then it's minor. There's really no reason for a middle ground. Also, when having a discussion, indent your comments using a colon. -- MAGNEDETH 03:52, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
When you're told to stop doing something by a staff member, especially a Vice-Webmaster, you really should not ignore what you're being told. So, once again, if an appearance isn't major, then it's minor. There is no need for an "other" section, so stop adding them to species articles. Thank you. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 00:29, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Serena's Pancham

You probably didn't notice, but someone already has a page for Serena's Pancham in the works. In the future, you can use this function to see if someone already has the page in the works. ☼ BlazingFist ☼ 17:11, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Alright thank you. I will get rid of mine in that case.Rahl (talk) 01:53, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

XY044 Gym Battle

Don't forget Pikachu.--JasonL 15:33, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

I usually leave Pikachu alone. I don't care for all the screen time he gets and writing about Pikachu's "glorious" gym battles just aggravates me and causes me to oppinionate what I write. If you would like to add Pikachu's gym battle to his page you can find the video here-https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGaf2eOqzGtlSeupxNROxug/videos. Rahl 17:47, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Just a heads up

On your user pages "User:Rahl/Gym Leader Pokemon Template", "User:Rahl/Gym Battles", and "User:Rahl/League Battles", please use [-[File:694MS.png|link=Clemont (anime)#Heliolisk]-] (without the dash) instead of {-{MSP|694|Clemont (anime)#Heliolisk}-} to make images that act as links to other pages. The later causes the links to go to pages such as "Ash's Pikachu (Pokémon)". Thanks. Adamws (talk) 22:53, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Edit Warring

Please do not edit war. If you disagree with an edit, discuss it with the user that reverted you. Do not revert them. Thank you.--ForceFire 04:15, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Clemont's Magneton

If you feel it deserves an article, create it in your userspace, not the mainspace. Just because it meets notability requirements (which I'm going to have to check to see if it is), does not mean you can just create it in the mainspace. Once it's been approved of by the admins, then it will be moved.--ForceFire 13:54, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
