Welcome to Bulbapedia, Pokelova!

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.
  • 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. 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. 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:Pokelova/(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 03:05, 15 June 2008 (UTC)


Don't make so many edits to the User: namespace. Instead of doing many, small edits, try to do fewer, larger edits. Garrison12795 22:59, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

I'll make as much small edits as I like! It's not your Userpage, so mind your own business!--Pokelova 23:38, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Oh is that right? You better stop making so many edits or consider yourself blocked. --ケンジガール 00:29, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

I can get blocked for that?--Pokelova 00:33, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Yep. We are trying to cut down on userspace edits. Everyone is trying to contribute their fair share. The userspace was locked for 4 months because of too many userspace edits and I don't look foward to going through another one. --ケンジガール 00:34, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

I thought that was because people were putting silly things on the actual pages, if ya know what I mean.--Pokelova 00:36, 9 August 2008 (UTC)


Slow down on editing the User: namespace. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page. Thank you. --MoldyOrange 00:23, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry. :( --Pokelova 00:34, 9 August 2008 (UTC)


I don't have the resources to upload sprites, but you can always change the image to one that is already on the archives, there are enough images of every Pokémon so that everyone can be satisfied. MoldyOrange 12:41, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

If you're just looking for something like Blaziken, then use [[Image:257.png]] which results in: 257.png
Of course, repace 257 with the Pokémon's number. Gywall(Talk) 19:05, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks so much!--Pokelova 19:53, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Once again

Please slow down on editing the User Space.The more you edit the User Space, the more likely the User Space will be blocked againDCM 11:57, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry. D: --Pokelova 01:08, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Just wondering....

do you want all of your user tags where they are or on the side of you page?--DCM((TalkContributions)) 13:26, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I want them on the side of the page. How? Pokelova 20:15, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Mystery Dungeon 2 Player

A usertag you have been using, {{User Mystery Dungeon 2}}, has been moved to a new location due to a split in the usertag between the two versions. Your tag has been switched to that template's new location, {{User Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time}}. If you only play Explorers of Darkness, you can reflect it by changing the tag to {{User Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Darkness}}. --Shiningpikablu252 01:51, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! --Pokelova 06:07, 8 September 2008 (UTC)


As per the Signature policy, your signature should at least have a link to your userpage in it... currently, your signature doesn't link anywhere. Could you do me a favor and add a link to your userpage at the least? -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 15:21, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

When I try to get it to link to my userpage, it doesn't work! --User:Pokelova

Now its working, but I can't get it to say the time. Maybe its cos I'm on the Wii. --User:Pokelova

Hmm, are you using four tildes, or just three? Three tildes does just the signature (-- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^), five does just the date (19:43, 27 September 2008 (UTC)), and four does both, which is how you should be ending your comments. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 19:43, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

I use 4, but it just won't link to my page! :( That's why I'm putting User: Pokelova --Pokelova 00:11, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

You may have the "raw signatures" box checked without any code entered into it. If that's the case, either uncheck the box or write in code so that it links to your userpage, as well as any other pages you want. --((Marton imos)) 00:20, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll go do that now! --User: Pokelova

...did it work? --((Marton imos)) 05:45, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Let check! --Pokelova 07:09, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Seems it's working. :D -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 08:08, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Yay!--Pokelova 00:53, 19 November 2008 (UTC)


This is your final warning. Failure to comply with the limit on editing the User: namespace will cause you to lose the ability to edit it. --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 07:50, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry....--Pokelova 07:52, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Thats it! You're over the limit for user space edits again! your editing to the userspace has been blocked until you wisen upDCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))

No! Please! I won't edit it anymore when I'm finished my game data!--Pokelova 00:20, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Alas, its too late. Goodbye.DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))

How long till i'm allowed to edit again?--Pokelova 00:49, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Ask this user in about two weeks,DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Just write down your data in Notepad or MSWord in the meantime. Probably a good idea to do that after you're let back into userspace editing as well, so you don't need to edit so often. Update it weekly instead of multiple times daily, etc... -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 04:08, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Okay...--Pokelova 02:22, 28 November 2008 (UTC)


Can you please fix the spelling of Poocheyana on the Mudkip article? -- Pikachu120 05:15, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Done! But why did you ask me to do it?--Pokelova 05:19, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Shiny Mew

No wayyyyyy! :D That is amazing. Legit or hacked? Jazzmoth 14:29, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

New Zealand

Dude, you're a New Zealander. So am I!!! Well I live in Australia now but I was born in New Zeland. How's it doing over there. --Clarky13 12:03, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Australia? I love Aussie! But not as much as America! NZ is doing fine. Except for occasional bad weather. Is Aussie hot as usual?--Pokelova 12:53, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Its been so hot lately. You don't know the half of it. I loved the US too. They get everything first, and they're too lazy to bring it here. :( --Clarky13 19:41, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
You've been to America too?!--Pokelova 22:12, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, man. It was great fun. --Clarky13 09:23, 24 January 2009 (UTC)


I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot today. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of Userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Just wait until tomorrow, ok? Thanks! --FF(edits-talk) 13:32, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I know. I just went a bit overboard today. It won't happen again.--258.pngPokelova393.png 13:36, 23 January 2009 (UTC)


Riddles are banned from the Userspace.--FF(edits-talk) 13:32, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Why?--258.pngPokelova393.png 13:36, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Because any user can edit it and thus it can cause server stress. ΘρtιmαtumTalk 13:37, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

And Images aren't allowed in sigs.--FF(edits-talk) 13:37, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Aw, I just figured out how to put them in there! Fine, I'll take them out.--258.pngPokelova393.png 13:39, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
There!--Pokelova 13:40, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, there's a lot of Policies around here. There is a few on the Welcome Template at the top of the page.--Clarky13 19:37, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Re: Images

Images from certain games.. Spr_#?_---.png

Spr is part of the file name. # is the generation number. ? is the version. --- is the Pokémon ID.

Gen I
b - Red and Blue
y - Yellow
g - Red (jp) and Green

Gen II
g - Gold
s - Silver
c - Crystal. Use .gif instead of .png here.

r - Ruby and Sapphire
f - FireRed/LeafGreen
e - Emerald. See Crystal note

Gen IV
d - Diamond and Pearl.
p - Platinum.

Also, if you click an image.. you can see it's file name. As an example.. if the page is titled "Image:Spr 2s 009.png".. Linking to it results in:
Spr 2s 009.png
Enjoy. Gywall Talk 10:11, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I actually already figured it out. But thanks!--Pokelova 02:42, 25 January 2009 (UTC)


Just add your name to the bottom of this list. Thanks for helping out! LordArceus 02:27, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks!--Pokelova 02:43, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
