Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, RexRacer!

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:RexRacer/(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! --TTEchidna 05:37, 31 August 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. --MoldyOrange 16:21, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Trading

Please post here if you would like to trade in the intrest of getting a Pokemon with a different OT. Or for any other reason. Plese visit my User Page to find a complete list of Pokemon that I have to trade, by National Dex number. Thanks, --RexRacer 16:13, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

If you can translate Kanji...

do this card!!! It is the last one we need a:Image:Top4trainers.jpg MoldyOrange 11:00, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Kadabra}} instead of just [[Kadabra]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. --Shiningpikablu252 01:55, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

So I'd kinda need something...

Your friend code, for instance. TTEchidna 19:47, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

It's 4081 7436 7141--RexRacer -talk 20:14, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Trade

Awesome! I don't need Growlithe anymore though. What do you need for Meowth? Porygon-Z 02:19, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Got a Chikorita?--RexRacer -talk 02:20, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Pretty sure I do. 95% sure. I'll check/get back to you tomorrow. Going now. Porygon-Z 02:21, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Cool.--RexRacer -talk 02:22, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but I'm not going to be able to have access to my DS for a while :'(. When I do, I'll message you.Porygon-Z 18:12, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Nice!

So, you've found my secret page...anyways...you know how to read japanese? That's great. I hope you don't mind me asking you for help when I need something to be translated...online translators do NOT work...they end up with funky words, since some japanese words are translated from kanji to hiragana first. I'll talk to ya' later, me friend...oh, and try to post on my talk page instead, I might not know when you reply.--Tavisource 00:59, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Do you know how to read kanji too? I'm chinese, so I can read it.--Tavisource 01:05, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Your comment on my talk page

When you voted for Heat Wave, you did something wrong: I said not to put any additional comments, just your signature. Can you please change that? --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 22:38, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Whatevz--RexRacer -talk 22:41, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Redlinks

Do not remove redlinks! That is how pages appear on the Wanted pages. If there were no redlinks, no one would know what pages to create. Leave the removing of redlinks to an admin. MoldyOrange 02:14, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

The problem with your edit

I'm not sure about "start" vs. "previous," you'd have to ask someone else about that. But the moves Bibarel learns before the level at which it evolves from Bidoof are not "previous," as they are learned by Bibarel at those levels, even though it's normally impossible to have a Bibarel at those levels. This is important for things like move relearners. --((Marton imos)) 00:54, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Ah. Well, I saw Graveler's page did the same thing, so I was wondering if that was the standerd, especially since ShiningPikablu252 missed it. --RexRacer -talk 00:56, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Pre-text

hold up there. the text on top of each page describing evolution isnt finalized. -- MAGNEDETH 02:08, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

I've been using this- seems good to me.

1. (Pokémon) evolves into {{p|}} starting at level ()[, then into {{p|}} starting at level ().]

2. (Pokémon) evolves from {{p|}} starting at level ()[, and evolves into {{p|}} starting at level().]

3. It evolves from {{p|}} at level () and is the final form of {{p|}}.

--RexRacer -talk 02:19, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

you dont have to go to my page to respond, you can respond here. also, i like what youve got. i started the pre-text project and have been doing it myself. i havnt gotten to three-stage evos yet. let me review what youve got here. give me a minute. -- MAGNEDETH 02:16, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
ok--RexRacer -talk 02:19, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
the first evo and second evo are fine, but the basic needs fixing. it makes it sound like (example) Bulbasaur can evolve straight into Venusaur. now, we know that cant happen, but, we (the pedia)cater to idiots, so, let me think about that one. -- MAGNEDETH 02:24, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
It's just a touch-up of what you started--RexRacer -talk 02:26, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
i didnt start three-stage evo lines at all. i did basics, and two-stagers only. whatever you got is probably left over TTE-ism. -- MAGNEDETH 02:28, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
ive made my change. have at it. -- MAGNEDETH 02:32, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

whoa whoa whoa. the 2 stagers are fine. the "starting" is ok, but, theres no need to repeat thier names. -- MAGNEDETH 02:42, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

So I only repeat the name when it has already been done?--RexRacer -talk 02:46, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
No, don't repeat the name when it's done in the sentence before. It's repetitive, doesn't look good and isn't exactly proper English. ←{Berrymaster|Talk|Contrib}→ 02:48, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
thanks for stepping on my lines Berrymaster....no, dont repeat the name at all. thats redundancy. thats what i was trying to stop in the first place. the pre-text goes right under the opening, so theres no reason to re-state the name. hmm, im all messed up. no offense, but thats why i was doing this project by myself.. -- MAGNEDETH 02:51, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm done--RexRacer -talk 02:53, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

let me just define it, and ill get back to you. give me maybe 5 mins. -- MAGNEDETH 02:55, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

What pokemon do you need from me?--Diamaster 00:40, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

A misdreavus--RexRacer -talk 00:41, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
anything else?--Diamaster 00:44, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
eh, i don't want to use you for a Pokémon depot... not really. Well, are you good at cloning? I could make it worth your while.RexRacer -talk 00:48, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm his private tutor for cloning Pokémon and items, he's become an expert now, often better than me! Go for it!--Tavisource 00:50, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
i'll try.--Diamaster 00:49, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm stuck in the elite four right now, so it will take some time.--Diamaster 00:51, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
No pressure--RexRacer -talk 00:52, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
How many times have you beat the elit-four?...wait, you beat it hundreds of times...what are you doing now?--Tavisource 01:01, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
So... would you want the Banette? I also have a Larvitar that I could breed. Those are kinda rare...--RexRacer -talk 01:10, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
He already has a Pupitar. His list is a list of Pokemon that he hasn't caught yet, not POkemon that he needs from others.--Tavisource 01:12, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

k--RexRacer -talk 01:13, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Fixed my pokemon needed list. Any shiny pokemon do you need? Shows all the shiny pokemon i own on my user page.--Diamaster 01:29, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

The Dialga would be cool if I could borrow it for a battle tomorrow. So, what's your FC? Mine's 4081 7436 7141. --RexRacer -talk 01:39, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

do you want a shiny staraptor?--Diamaster 01:43, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
He asked you for your friend code, not a shiny staraptor.--Tavisource 01:45, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Do you live in the same house?RexRacer -talk 01:47, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

We're brothers.--Diamaster 01:51, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I know. Then, Tavi, can you not push him around on my talk page when you are in the same house? It makes me feel bad even though I didn't have a part in it. --RexRacer -talk 01:54, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

my friend code is 171918701832. What's yours?--Diamaster 02:04, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah. I'll get on now.--RexRacer -talk 02:39, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

nice battle. you did good in the second round. talk to you next time.:)--Diamaster 03:19, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Friend List

By the way, If you want to be my friend, go to my user page and follow the following.--Diamaster 02:38, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Level up Learnset

ok,please don't change the Level up learnset anymore. We mentioned the move that can learn form the move relearner is considered as a start move, you may take look at other pokemon such as Weavile, the three move Assurance, Revenge and Embargo is considred as start move rather than "upon evolution" . please don't change it anymore,beacuse it make me a lot of work that I don't want to-- chungkingpun 12:56, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorry. I think Kkllnn said that I was supposed to do it like that. Also, it looks better-RexRacer -talk 20:34, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
I did? When?--Kkllnn blastoise 20:35, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh, sorry. It wasn't you. It was Martonimos. The proof is right here.--RexRacer -talk 20:40, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Good Friend tag

Thanks for the Good friend tag.--Diamaster 03:01, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Nice work

I see you're adding info about the moves that Pokémon can learn from the Platinum tutors, so I thought I'd stop by and say "nice work"! --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 13:29, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

No, 婆 is not Kanji...but I kinda found out anyways. Thanks.--Tavisource 22:52, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Team "table"

We're trying to phase the old Team table that uses the battle-sprites. So please don't use the Team table for listing game parties on articles. Thank you, - Kogoro | Talk to me | 00:24, 17 October 2008 (UTC)


How do you do it?

Ya....I can just say......NO.....the move adding is all do by yourself....though--chungkingpun 04:02, 19 October 2008 (UTC)


Let's do this a different way. --ニョロトノ666 02:49, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

seriously, itd be way more useful if you could do the whole tutor per-Pokemon. it doesnt take even that much longer either. -- MAGNEDETH 02:54, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
I perfer to just knock out an entire move. Besides, when you do that you can just copy and paste, when doing an entire Pokémon would entail filling out many different tables from scratch...--RexRacer -talk 02:56, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
yea, but as Poli said, doing per move clogs recent changes, and thats annoying. its also against the rules. (flooding) -- MAGNEDETH 02:57, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
...Even if I do it at like, six in the morning, when there are like, seven edits per hour? I know... But these things are taking a really long time to do, for the entire encyclopedia, and when a good 1/20th of it is done in fifteen minutes, I think that it gets the job done.--RexRacer -talk 03:04, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Why?

Why did you remove the userspace warning from Missingno. Master's talk page? It is clear he has edited over the limit. Is he an exception? I thought he wasn't an admin anymore. Gligar 21:09, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Because Missingno wasnt editing his pages. It was Missingno000, who was editing MissingnoMaster's pages...--RexRacer -talk 21:12, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Re: Please

When was my userpage locked before? 欠番 21:10, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

For about three months, everyone's userpage was locked.--RexRacer -talk 21:12, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Why was everyone's userpages locked? Also, according to the edit code, "Please note that all contributions to Bulbapedia may be edited... by other contributors." 欠番 21:17, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Not user pages. You may only edit other user's pages if you are given explicit permission, or if there are broken links.--RexRacer -talk 21:18, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Why was everyone's userpages locked? 欠番 21:21, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Because everyone was editing the userspace too much. There were no rules about it at the time, and now we have the userspace policy to help keep people from editing their pages too rapidly. However, if the policy is not followed, then the userpage might as well not be editable. And that is why we need to warn you. Please note that if you make two more User space edits today the privalage for you to do so will be temporarilly revoked. --RexRacer -talk 21:28, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Wow.

I totally did not know about that template. Guess we learn something new every day. --Martonimos 04:10, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Pokémon Plurality

I would like to argue that it is perfectly okay for Pokémon to be referred to in the singular in their Biology sections, or anywhere else for that matter. Yes, they are species, but it is perfectly appropriate to refer to a species in the singular. For instance, consider Wikipedia's article on Cougars. The second paragraph reads "A capable stalk-and-ambush predator, the cougar pursues a wide variety of prey." (emphasis mine). It is the same case for Pokémon species. The difference, of course, is that Pokémon species are considered proper nouns, so we would never refer to Pikachu as a species as the Pikachu. Using singular verbs with the name of a Pokémon species can thus refer to the Pokémon species as a whole, and not just to a specific instance, so saying something such as "Raikou is a yellow, tiger-like creature" is grammatically fine. — Laoris (Blah) 04:18, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Wait!

Snore is a tutor move in Platinum! Please don't remove it from the Pokémon pages. Chocolate 01:34, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Of course it is! DUH! I added it to like 70 articles:P Except it is not a tutor for Drowzee and Hypno.--RexRacer 01:36, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Where does it say that? All Pokémon that can learn tutor moves can learn Snore. Drowzee and Hypno can learn tutor moves, right? Chocolate 01:37, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Just because it's not on Smogon's list, doesn't mean it isn't a move for them. I've already found several errors on the list. — Laoris (Blah) 01:38, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
I will believe you if you can give me proof. Where does it say that? Right now I am going off of Serebii. I don't even know what Smogon is--RexRacer01:39, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Serebii has been wrong before. Many times. Chocolate 01:40, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
I will go check Hypno on Platinum right now. I'm pretty sure I already did this, but it was a couple days ago. If you don't trust me, I can take a video. — Laoris (Blah) 01:43, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
No, I believe you. I'm not that persistent. Just right now I don't have anything to show me otherwise. Thanks for doing this.--RexRacer 01:45, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Ok, sorry if I'm coming off as hostile. I'm going to go check now anyway though. — Laoris (Blah) 01:49, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
I hope I'm not coming off as hostile.--RexRacer 01:50, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I have to apologize. I guess Snore on Hypno wasn't one of the moves I checked earlier, and Serebii and Smogon are right—it doesn't learn it. I probably made an assumption there. Thank you for catching my mistake. I'll try not to be so quick to assume fault next time. I really did find some discrepancies on there though...
On a related note, thank you for putting together that list of platinum move tutor template thingies. It's been really helpful. — Laoris (Blah) 02:03, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
