Welcome to Bulbapedia, Aggron989!

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!

When using templates, such as P, make sure you use these ({{ and }}) instead of the brackets ([[ and ]]). Otherwise it appears as a red link and creates a wanted page. Thanks. Lady Ariel 18:01, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Sorry... did I screw up on that somewhere? I wouldn't be surprised if I did. Aggron989 (talk) 22:04, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
I just fixed it on the Giant Pokémon page. Were the links not working? They did not appear as red links on the preview or the actual page. Aggron989 (talk) 22:08, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
Click the links. Aggron or Aggron. One goes to Aggron's page, and the other goes to the page p. --Abcboy (talk) 22:26, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
To clarify what Abcboy said. The links would have worked, but not to the desired page because the brackets were used instead. For example, [[p|Shroomish]] would link to P, instead of Shroomish. They wouldn't have appeared as redlinks, because a page does exist at the name P. Whereas if you used {{p|Shroomish}} it would have liked to the correct page. The brackets are used to link to a page, but the others are used for a template. Lady Ariel 22:38, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
Thank you! I wouldn't have noticed the difference otherwise. Aggron989 (talk) 22:44, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

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! ----Pokemaster97 21:19, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
