Since you never got one...

Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, The Great Butler!

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:The Great Butler/(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 00:12, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Additionally

If you create a page, categorize it, and if you don't like the page, don't blank it. TTEchidna 00:12, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

About Jun...

Yeah. We're not creating it yet because we don't want some crazy amount of speculation. We would, but the fact is that it's just not needed yet... especially since most CotDs wait several weeks before they get pages. He'll have his page SOON. TTEchidna 03:00, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

When making an edit like yours, you can just use {{p|Mantine}}, instead of [[Mantine {Pokémon)|Mantine]], its much easier. --PsychicRider 02:46, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

- I see. I will keep this in mind for future edits. Thanks. ~Butler

You're welcome. There wasn't anything wrong with using your method, it just saves space by using the "p" template. --PsychicRider 02:57, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Predictions

I like your predictions...they might actually work!...I like Lord of the PokéRingers' but it's probably not going to be that, for it's more of a recent show.--Tavisource 01:24, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I really couldn't figure out a much better name for that episode. --The Great Butler 01:33, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Edit Summary

Hi you dont seem to be using edit summaries at all.Please start using them.It helps people in petrolling. --Prongs (TalkContributions) 04:01, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

They don't have too.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 04:03, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Someone pointed it out on my talk page. --Prongs (TalkContributions) 04:05, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
You do. But I perfer not to use them often.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 04:17, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Conversely, I have made only two edits without one... and then, by accident. It is preferable and advised for all persons to make an accurate summary of what they've done. It looks good in the page history, too. — THE TROM — 04:27, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Links

You really need to provide links as proof of where you found all this out to avoid being reverted by other users. So can you prove that Palmer will be in DP138? --ケンジガール 03:29, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

- durd2.jpg <<< This image, which came from a magazine scan featuring all the other information about DP138. --The Great Butler 03:30, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! --ケンジガール 03:34, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
No problem. Also, I apologize for not using the right templates on DP138's page - I saw Delia's in the original version and thought it was miscoded, and I didn't know there was a Frontier Brain template. --The Great Butler 03:37, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
It's alright. The FB template's a pain to remember anyway. --ケンジガール 03:39, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

The movie cards

Changing that one name breaks a lot more than you know about. Just warning you. MaverickNate 02:58, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Plūf

You added "Plūf" to the Movie characters template, right? I have no idea who's that but I can say one thing - this romanization is awkward. In Engrish-ized romanization we omit macron marks. But for proper romanization, one needs a Kana spelling. What's the Kana spelling of this name. If it's "プルーフ" then "Proof" would be a better romanization. --Maxim 10:32, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Talk pages

You've been here a while, you should know the talk page policy. Talk pages are for discussing the quality/substance of the article, remember? As such, the Tea Party/Glenn Beck comments were unnecessary and have been deleted. —darklordtrom 02:02, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

It was a joke, meant to ask why "Tea Party" was added to the page's template as the Pokémon Nappers leader. --The Great Butler 02:05, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
Next time do so in a more clear way. Not everything has to be a joke. Umeko added Tea Party; she's got an extensive knowledge of Japanese so I'd be inclined to believe it. —darklordtrom 02:19, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Ingo and Emmet

Would you mind providing proof of that the twins will appear in BW047 and BW048? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 06:50, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Nevermind. I see it now. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 06:51, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

emmetingoanime.jpg --The Great Butler 06:54, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

 :O!! Look at that nose! XDD Yeah, thanks for that~ I just saw Bluesun's image. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 06:56, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
Well, it's Musashi's image really. Bluesun 07:01, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

The name changes

I already talked to Ady about that. He said he talked to someone about it and it's cool. Ataro 09:25, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

I see. Count me as surprised though, because I thought we already went over this extensively when it was over Karl, Sheena and Kevin's names. --The Great Butler 09:28, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Episode pages

Please try to avoid editing episode pages while the episode is still airing. This way it isn't edited multiple times before the episode is even finished. Thanks. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 10:14, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Alright. --The Great Butler 10:16, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

"So yeah", hey man

Well, before I begin, I hope you don't find this offensive; it was either this (me addressing you) or an edit war, and the latter I'm assuming shouldn't ever occur. Nowhere in my revision are the words "looks like", and if it can be said that Probopass looks like ("pays homage to" are the actual words I believe) Mario (which, by your definition, is an opinion; the article on Probopass is just an example of whoever added said information comparing the Pokemon to a character that happens to be outside of the Pokemon series lol), then why is it so absolutely terrible that I think Mysterial's body sort of resembles Empoleon's? It wasn't even like I just put "mysterial looks like empoleon"; I described their similarities (without using the words "looks like"). BNKTalk 00:16, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

There has been a history of similar topics coming up on other pages. A long time ago, for example, some people saw resemblance to some members of the Dialga/Palkia/Giratina trio in the shapes of the puddles within the caves at the lakes. Some people saw them, some people didn't, and it was decided that the possible resemblance was not based in fact enough to warrant being included. It's the same thing here - it doesn't seem anyone else sees these similarities. The Probopass thing probably shouldn't be there either, but that's another topic for another time. --The Great Butler 00:22, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Well, thanks for clearing that up. I suppose majority rules, I'll try to start discussions on the talk page before adding information to pages I feel may conflict with views of other users. BNKTalk 00:27, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Just great...

I see you created your own page about Trip's Conkeldurr. That's sooooo nice. Once again, I'm too late for creating an article even for myself. Dammit. --FinnishPokéFan92 15:59, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for adding the images to the move template, though. --The Great Butler 22:43, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Please don't

I saw the description for why you undid my edit for Juanita's Golurk. She didn't issue the command. I made the same mistake before, but this talk page response to me shows a perfectly good reason not to assume. Chowolun 02:07, 10 April 2012 (UTC) User:Lucario985

That page is the exact same one that reinforced my reason for changing it back. Not only did Golurk fly (which is what that page actually says) it also used its flight to directly attack using no other recognizable move. That is exactly what Fly is. --The Great Butler 02:30, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Tell that to Pokemaster97. Chowolun 02:33, 10 April 2012 (UTC) User:Lucario985

Hey, sorry about last night...

I'm sorry about getting angry at you the other day. I had a shitty day yesterday. Chowolun 13:26, 10 April 2012 (UTC) User:Lucario985 (Want to talk?)

Just to fill you in

I e-mailed John Loeffler again, and he said that the 4kids music will for sure, definatly be used in bw100. so it's a for sure, definate there. please respond on my talk page, i might not be able to find this page again due to my picky browser. Christian Woods Azu! 18:16, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

scrap that part about not finding your page again. Christian Woods Azu! 18:20, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Kami trio (anime)

05308 has already made a page for them. Just so you know :)--ForceFire 10:03, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Okay, I was unaware. Please delete mine if it hasn't been already. --The Great Butler (talk) 03:14, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

New episode articles

You are probably aware of it but an obligated reminder. Instead of copying the format in the previous episode, use this template: {{New episode}}. Just fill-in the parameters like this: {{subst:New episode|ep number|jp. airdate|kanji|translated title}}. That'd be all, have a nice day ahead. AdynizWanna talk? 19:41, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Actually, I wasn't aware. Thank you for the notice. Though, won't the template need to be changed for the beginning of the XY series, at least color-wise? --The Great Butler (talk) 22:57, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
No problem. Yeah, it will be updated soon hopefully. AdynizWanna talk? 02:21, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Astrid

What is the sourc dat Astrid a Pyroar and a Mewostick have? --Altruis でんき 03:19, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Ask the person who added them to her page. I'm just trying to keep up. The Great Butler (talk) 06:05, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
