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!

Copyright violation

Please, do not, under any circumstances, link to any unofficial sites that allow you to view Pokemon episodes. That's illegal and it can get us in trouble. Ataro (talk) 00:03, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Really? There's no mention of that in any Bulbapedia policies I've read. GamerGeek 00:11, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
There shouldn't have to be, it's illegal for it to be on the unofficial sites anyway, and as a result, it should be common sense not to link to them. The only sites that are allowed to show the anime include the official website, as well as Cartoon Network, or any of the other television channels that air the show. --Spriteit (talk) 01:31, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
So I can link to only these ones then? [1] [2] GamerGeek 02:57, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
Since they are official distributors I believe that would be okay, but it's probably best to just say 'the episode on the cartoon network webpage'. Just in case the links break or change. --Spriteit (talk) 03:03, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
Well, I personally prefer to have the link to the episode in question myself, just so that everyone can just watch and listen for themselves, and it makes it much easier to pinpoint what the subject matter is. only has a few select episodes available about every week (including the 4Kids-dubbed ones, which is illegal since the site is owned by TPCi), and CN's site requires that you have an account there, along with your own TV network provider (which I don't have anymore).
