Welcome to Bulbapedia, Spriteit!

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:Spriteit/(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.
  • There are certain restrictions on the content and amount of userspace content a user is allowed. For details, see the Userspace policy.
  • Unless prior permission is given, no user is permitted to edit another user's page. Furthermore, edits to other users' pages are permitted only if there are problems that spread to other parts of Bulbapedia, such as broken links that appear on the wanted pages, switching out duplicate images that appear on the Archives, etc.
  • Fan fictions, missions, riddles, games, and anything else deemed not suitable for the wiki will not be allowed. If you would like to add something, but do not know if it is acceptable, ask an administrator.
  • A list of administrators that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --MaverickNate 03:40, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Redirects on talk pages

It's alright that you are fixing redirects for main pages as it looks nicer. But there is really no point to do it to the talk pages. So please don't waste your time with them and focus on the main pages. --ケンジガール 02:34, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Link templates

Remember that you can use link templates to make editing easier. Instead of using [[Rustboro City|Rustboro]] when you're fixing links to redirects, why not use {{ci|Rustboro}}? You can refer to the list of link templates if you're in need of one. - espeonA 02:46, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Just a heads-up

I replied to your comment on the MoveDex talk page.

Just a heads-up on images, I noticed you list them off on your userpage with text, not links; not sure how much you know about wiki-coding. But, if you want to make links, you just use brackets; for images, since you don't want to actually display the image, you just code it as: [[:file:image.jpg]]

The extra : before "File" makes it into a normal link, as opposed to a image inclusion. Might be handy if you need to link to images (if you manage to upload any move scans, you might need to link to some of 'em so we know they're up). -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 13:38, 19 December 2009 (UTC)


Wild held items: use the {{wild}} template. It'll autolink! TTEchidna 10:00, 21 January 2010 (UTC)


Remember to list only Pokémon that have the possibility of being male for breeding. Adding Kangaskhan and Nidoran♀ would not fit this category since they can only be female. ht14 13:43, 26 January 2010 (UTC)


They get italics now. If you are going around adding the epicode number, go ahead and add the italics around the link as well. MaverickNate 14:02, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Redirects to sections

I know that redirects should be avoided, but it generally better to leave redirects to sections alone. For the full explanation, see User talk:SnorlaxMonster#DL link. For example, what if Team Raider had a huge role in the next Mystery Dungeon game and deserved their own article? --SnorlaxMonster 12:42, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Renaming everything

Good effort. I hate to interrupt, but I was curious - are you doing it all manually, or have you made a program to edit? —darklordtrom 19:59, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Unless you count the use of tabs and the find and search feature, all done manually. I'm usually good at getting done the repetitive tasks in regards to syntax, such as redirection renaming and the such, it is why I tried to help with the movie coding when they were moved and redirects to pages as well as recategorisation of images in the archives when the images are changed sometimes. I think I got everything that I could (not including the Royal Isshu which seemed to be kept at that page due to it's name as a ship and not the region itself), a few of the pages were locked, and I couldn't touch most of the templates. So they'll have to be done by the mods. Sorry. -Spriteit 22:50, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your hard work. Here, I got you something. I'll swap you for a list of protected pages that need changing? (If any.) —darklordtrom 10:43, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
I made 500 in one day, wow, thank you. It's mostly just the templates that need changing now, Template:EpisodeInfobox, Template:PokémonInfoboxNoncat, Template:Legendary Pokémon, Template:New episode, Template:Routelist, Template:AbilityInfobox, Template:Episodelistheader, Template:Cotd/h, Template:AbilityInfoboxNoncat, Template:User Best Wishes all need a change of Isshu to Unova (these are mostly just colour template changes I believe), it looks like the rest have been changed already :) -Spriteit 11:22, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

British English

I would like to point out that Bulbapedia uses American English, not British English in its articles, but redirects for British spellings should be made. However, most of your edits are correct, in that optical discs should be spelled with a 'c' (even in American English). However, when it comes to disk as in a shape, it should be 'k'. While most of your edits are correct, your edit summaries seem to provide the wrong reasons. --SnorlaxMonster 12:11, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Okay then, I was just using a general edit summary for the point, and I was unaware of that, I've always been taught that the British use a k, and the American a c, regardless. My apologises. --Spriteit 12:14, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Don't worry. Unless you were changing quotes or disks as in shape you're fine. I think this explains the confusing usage of disc and disk fairly well. Oh, and sorry if I confused you before, but 'k' is only used for the shape in American English (just noticed that I was a little ambiguous when I put that). --SnorlaxMonster 12:19, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
K for shape, okay then, I'll continue through my list and try to catch them all, but make sure I try not to take the spellings at face value next time :) --Spriteit 12:25, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Edits to be made

I did some of your "edits to be made" for protected pages. It is generally better to put edit requests on the talk pages of protected pages if you want them changed. Also, you were doing Pocket Monsters BW wrong. Using {{ma|Pocket Monsters BW|Kosaku Anakubo}} simply links to Pocket Monsters BW (manga) while displaying Kosaku Anakubo; what you want is {{OBP|Pocket Monsters BW|Kosaku Anakubo}}. Don't worry, I already went back and corrected where you made these errors. --SnorlaxMonster 13:14, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Deck redirects

We also wanted to add categories to those pages at the same time. oh well. Thanks for getting the redirects. MaverickNate 16:41, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Heh, sorry about that... if you want me too I can go through and add the categories for you as well, just give me the names of the categories and I'll go through them again. I thought the template automatically categorised them, sorry. --Spriteit 11:50, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
The TCG links to redirects for specific reasons. Why would a Japanese card be released with an English card? that's what your "fixes" are implying. Why would a Japanese only card categorization have an English release?MaverickNate 05:56, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Didn't even realise I was redoing the edits you had reverted, sorry about that. But having properly read the paragraphs I don't see how changing the links implies an English release. If it states in Japan then wouldn't one assume it would be in Japanese? --Spriteit 06:06, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
I guess so, but we'd like to do it that way so that we wouldn't have to constantly update things as they are released different times. Sometimes it isn't so obvious. This card links to its counterpart's Promo redirect because it was the promo that was released, not the original. IDK. It's something that makes sense, in my opinion. It reflects sometimes what is legal in the game and what isn't. Decks aren't able to use things from 10 sets ago, so it's only logical that this deck links to the Rare Candy release that was legal at the time "Rare Candy (EX Holon Phantoms 90)", rather than one that is no longer able to be used "Rare Candy (EX Sandstorm 88)". MaverickNate 06:14, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
When you put it that way I get what you mean now, my TCG knowledge is limited up to the Team Rocket expansion due to its limited prevelance in Australia. So especially when it comes to the decks and tournament rulings I has no idea... will try too keep this in mind next time. --Spriteit 06:44, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Undoing yourself

Why did you suddenly change your mind? Those names are confirmed. If you need admin approval, I approve of it. --SnorlaxMonster 12:26, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Because in the move logs one of the pages was moved back due to lack of admin approval, despite believing myself the source was fine and dandy, I was unsure of whether admin approval did have to be waited for before renaming, so I figured I jumped the gun and decided to revert just to be safe. --Spriteit 12:30, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I see it now. I'll sort it out. It's ONM with footage of the game. It's one of the most reliable ways of getting this kind of information anyway. --SnorlaxMonster 12:32, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, and thats what I thought, but, like I said, better safe then sorry. --Spriteit 12:34, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

"misread what I was told by SnorlaxMonster"

Why are you undoing yourself? As far as I can tell, they seem correct. --SnorlaxMonster 14:02, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

I thought for some reason that you said all the target=any should be replaced with target=anyadjacent, as opposed to it also possibly being target=adjacentfoes. I'm not actually checking who can be hit in battle only the descriptions, as a result I was unsure if they were correct so I decided to revert them so that someone who was sure could go through and check them. --Spriteit 14:07, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I probably wasn't clear enough. target=anyadjacent means it can hit any adjacent Pokémon, including allies, but only one (example: Pound). target=adjacentfoes means that it hits all adjacent foes at once, so if you're in the corner it hits both (example: Air Slash); in double battles, these moves hit both opponents at once. target=any is now exclusively for these moves (but some of them like Perish Song would take something else). --SnorlaxMonster 14:12, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
It's not your fault, so anyadjacent is basically those moves that can only hit one (like Disable), and adjacentfoes is for both adjacent opponents get hit at once by a move (can't think of any off the top of my head), therefore most would be adjacentfoes correct? --Spriteit 14:30, 26 March 2011 (UTC)


Regarding your relinking of {{tc|Fisherman}}, you seemed to be changing Fisher to Fisherman. Fisher was the name of the class in Generation II, so you need to be careful not to change it then. If you need templates changed to make exceptions, I can set that up.--SnorlaxMonster 13:53, 25 April 2011 (UTC)


I'm guessing this is you. If so, I want you to log into that account, and send me a PM. If not, then we need to fix that because we need to talk. -- MAGNEDETH 03:37, 14 December 2011 (UTC)


When relinking PokéPark (theme park), it is better to use {{OBP|PokéPark|theme park}} than [[PokéPark (theme park)|PokéPark]]. Anyway, thanks for doing my relinks again. I really don't enjoy doing them, and you seem to, so we make a good team. --SnorlaxMonster 11:14, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

That link template always confused me, until now I didn't realise it was circumventing the disambig pages. And that's fine, relinks is what I do, most knowledge I have to contribute is already added, so I'm happy with clean up duty. Just quickly while I have you, what's happening with Elemental types (TCG)? I've put templates and started discussion, no reply though, I'd do it myself but TCG articles are Mav's thing, and I'd rather have his approval before touching it. --Spriteit 11:25, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
I intended to campaign for that after finding my TCG rulebook (which I didn't). However, based on other people's rulebooks and the TCGO, they are called just "types" in the TCG too. You might be better off just letting Nate know on his talk page if you want something to happen. Also, currently it is plural, which is discouraged, so I would suggest it gets moved to "Type (TCG)" if moved, but perhaps there is a reason for the plural that I'm missing. --SnorlaxMonster 11:29, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
I'll see if I can't find one of my old ones, but I'll bring it up on Nate's page anyway, since all my books would be from Base and Jungle era, but if it's just 'type' in the TCGO, I'd assume it would be the same in the actual card game. --Spriteit 11:35, 29 February 2012 (UTC)


Hello! I admire your work on fixing capital letters in words like Egg and Gym, it's something I'd never be able to do. But in this case, wouldn't badgeless be an adjective, instead of a noun like Badge? I think the capital letter doesn't apply in this case. |) u |( e ® 16:13, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, in regards to that edit I had a 503 while trying to save and had to re do it, I initially had it as Badge-less. Due to the fact that it was in direct reference to the Badges, another instance is where fossilized occurs, the F shouldn't be capitalised. If you want to change it back, be free too, I'll be doing alot of syntax edits for a while, they aren't number 1 priority, but they do need to be done. --Spriteit 06:09, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

My Edits

I remember you asking me if I am proud of my edits. Wanna know? Here is the answer: Yes, Yes I am. Have a good day!LMFS 05:40, 17 April 2012 (UTC)


If you have a chance later on, could you please log on to AIM for a few mins. I'll be online about all day today :D. Thanks. --Pokemaster97 14:39, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Re: Learnlist

noted. i will check through them when i am free. however, even before i make the edits, there are aready many inconsistancies between the pages -Pokeant (talk) 10:48, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

sprite work

Did you manage to fix all of the file names of the trainer sprites in the protected pages? PattyMan 01:52, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Stadium sprites

I have a favor to ask: could you edit the {{Party}} template so that the Stadium and Stadium 2 sprites can be fit into it with a proper size? Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:56, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

To be perfectly honest I can't. If not only because I'm not good at template coding and I'd probably break it, sorry. --Spriteit (talk) 07:31, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
I understand. Do you know any user who could do it? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:34, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Kogoro might be able to, might wanna specify if you mean the pokemon models or the trainer portraits though. --Spriteit (talk) 13:12, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:13, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Okay, what I missed? I saw the trailer, and how is this all related to this? Marked +-+-+ (talk) 15:09, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Look at all the pages I put the message on, they were all previous gen pokemon, mentions of appearances in a future gen don't go there. --Spriteit (talk) 15:11, 11 June 2013 (UTC)


Weirdly enough, Silver has no class in G2 (other than the ???, though that's more of a name). I have no idea how to implement that, though, without derping things.Eridanus (talk) 14:03, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

What is G2? Do you mean Crystal? -Spriteit (talk) 14:05, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Entire G2, which includes Gold, Silver and Crystal. It just says "<name> wants to battle!" when I checked in Silver and Crystal (Gold is presumably the same, because what are the chances) Eridanus (talk) 14:13, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
So you meant Generation 2, which is what I was getting at. Looking at Some Youtube videos you are right, He doesn't become Silver till Mt. Moon and even then he isn't Rival, I'll see what the other staff have to say. --Spriteit (talk) 14:27, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
