Welcome to Bulbapedia, Shawn!

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!

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! --Pikiwyn talk 22:04, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Second warning; Please use the preview button. It's directly to the right of the save button. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 10:23, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
Instead of editing a page multiple times to change information in multiple sections, please edit the entire page via the edit tab and use the preview button to make sure everything is right before saving. Your multi-editing is clogging up the Recent Changes. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 21:00, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

When you remove trivia...

When you remove trivia like this, it's helpful if you provide a counterexample. Without that, no one can really tell whether you just thought it wasn't notable or if you actually knew something that proved it false. And for something like this, with over 470 chapters, most people won't want to look through all of them to try to find that example. So it usually helps if you can mention it in your edit summary.

PS524.

A question: do you have Pokemon Adventures volume 51, or did you make that article based on the bits and pieces of pictures posted on the internet? Ataro (talk) 03:23, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes, yes I do. Shawn (talk) 03:25, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

I'll believe you. For now. But for future reference: if you're going to do an article for a volume, at least do all of them. Or at least start from the first chapter and not the very last one. And remember to include every human and Pokemon. I am reading Coronis' summaries, and unless they're wrong, you omitted several characters. I'll fix up what you added to make it Bulbapedia standard.
