Welcome to Bulbapedia, Maverick Nate/Archives!

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.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can 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 captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). 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. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • 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. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Maverick Nate/Archives/1/(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! MoldyOrange 22:53, 30 April 2008 (UTC)


If you want I can get that archives box to fit right in there. Porygon-Z 23:45, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

What do you mean?? Doesn't it already? MoldyOrange 00:27, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Hmm. Not on my computer. I wonder if it's my computer or yours that is messed? Porygon-Z 00:34, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Try it. I will tell you the results once you have done it. MoldyOrange 00:35, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
There. That's perfect on mine, at least. Porygon-Z 00:37, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
That's fine; it looks exactly the same. Thanks!! MoldyOrange 00:38, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Haha, weird. No problem though! Porygon-Z 00:40, 1 May 2008 (UTC)


All the TCG articles you've been making lately link to Expedition, but that's just a redirect to Expedition Base Set. If you don't mind, you should link to the actual page instead of the redirect. --Martonimos((Talk)) 01:49, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh thanks, I didn't notice. I will definitely fix them. MoldyOrange 01:55, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
I appreciate it. Apparently, you're not the only one who made that mistake; it looks like upwards of fifty pages link to that redirect. But no worries, I'll get to them eventually. Thanks. --Martonimos((Talk)) 02:02, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Hey, how come it says I don't have permission to edit my userpage? =| Mcoolister
