Welcome to Bulbapedia, GamerGeek!

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).

Oak's voice actor

I compared Professor Oak's voice from AG133 (Stan Hart's) and BW001 (Carter Cathcart's) with his voice in BW109. It definitely sounds like Carter Cathcart's. Go listen to them if you want :P. Stan Hart is credited only for voicing Cedric Juniper in this episode (he returned to the series with Cedric's role already in BW063). --Gabo 2oo (talk) 00:57, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Editing other user's posts

Please don't edit other user's talk page messages like you did here. Even if the spelling/grammar is incorrect, it's still a violation of our talk page policy. Please keep this in mind during the future. Thank you. --Pokemaster97 00:42, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about that; I just have a little OCD, and am a bit of a spelling/grammar freak. ^^; I'll try to remember that from now on. GamerGeek 00:52, 16 July 2013 (UTC)


Boom Reshiram.

Whoops. I accidently brought up Georgia's Bisharp here even though said reference was a joke. Bringing up that Georgia's Bisharp needs a page is a recurring joke. You are taking things WAAYYYYY too seriously. although i do believe that pokémon deserves a paeg woops --The Truth aka Relicant 13:58, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Look, this is Bulbapedia. We don't have time (or patience) to tell jokes or goof around. So please, don't keep bringing it up again. GamerGeek 18:36, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

...and if that were true, my XY joke page would have been gone by now. Jokes are fine. There's nothing wrong with a joke now and again. In fact, why don't you point out the rule that states jokes and goofs aren't allowed. That should be a good test for you. --The Truth aka Relicant 09:49, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

The thing is, your history with wanting a "Georgia's Bisharp" article doesn't really make it a joke and comes off as being whiny. If you could name another example that isn't Georgia's Bisharp, then people won't be on your tail about this.--ForceFire 10:09, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Could I also ask you to not bring up topics that have already been dealt with on my talk page? I'm not sure if you've checked but that convo ended early this morning. Thanks. --The Truth aka Relicant 21:07, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

The problem is that you and a few other users have been bickering for a while now, and none of you seem to be willing to comply with the rules or staff members. I know that you want to get a "fresh start" and all, but arguing isn't going to help. Also, I'd advise that you watch what you say in your edit summaries. GamerGeek 21:18, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
Relicant dropped it after my warning. Pumpkin did not and was blocked for a few days. Please do not randomly kick it back up again. Let the staff handle this, and please do not get involved any further. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 21:32, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Userspace pages

I enjoy your interest in the mainspace-able userspace pages. Now, our approach about discussion for these pages has changed recently. We discuss them, in addition to Candidates for merging, splitting, moving, and deleting, in a thread on the forums. All users are welcome to comment on that thread. Feel free to drop a line there. (Additionally, I pay attention to discussions on the wiki to decide which weekly pages I choose. So keep that in mind too!) MaverickNate 22:45, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

I'm actually not registered on the forums, and I thought that that's what talk pages are for (though, linking to that thread on the talk page could work). GamerGeek 22:54, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
The thread was to have a more central place for discussion all at once. Bringing the spotlight to tons of articles at once in a convenient place, and getting the ball rolling for them. That thread on the forums was the reason why Colored orbs finally got moved after a year (and Forests after like 5.). It is what the talk pages are still used for. The forums just help. They are a useful place to be registered. MaverickNate 23:03, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
