Welcome to Bulbapedia, Ruixiang95!

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.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • 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.
  • 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:Ruixiang95/(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! ----M-M-DRule! 09:43, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Pelipper}} instead of just [[Pelipper]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. --Shiningpikablu252 14:20, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Editing things

I wonder why sometimes i cant edit things. And what is 'tor exit node'?--Ruixiang95 13:38, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! --CuboneKing 01:30, 12 September 2009 (UTC)


I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. 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. Instead of editing the userspace, as a wiki, we encourage users to edit the mainspace. So, if you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit the userspace more. Thanks! ---- MAGNEDETH 04:37, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Image talk

See the archives to ask questions about images. ht14 03:39, 3 October 2009 (UTC)


Unfortunately, these are blocked per Bulbapedia's userspace policy. I am sorry, but I am going to have to delete them. You might be interested in creating an account on the Bulbagarden forums (link in sidebar) where you submit fanfic and have likeminded users help you improve your writing. —darklordtrom 09:01, 26 December 2009 (UTC)


I noticed that CtrlAltDestroy has the same IP as you. Relative? TTEchidna 09:48, 30 June 2010 (UTC)


Not sure if you are aware of this, but OneManga has closed its manga-hosting section, so you may want to remove the link you have on your userpage. --PhantomJunkie 21:08, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Why is composer/arranger info unnecessary?

I think it's very important to differentiate who wrote each track. One of the goals of Project Music is to be comprehensive, is it not? At least if you don't want such in depth detail in an article, allow me to post a link to each respective album on VGMdb, which has all that information and more. I can assure you that I'm not the only one who cares enough about composer/arranger breakdown to have it appear on such a comprehensive Pokémon site such as this. Thanks for reading this!

I don't think it belongs on the article but I could be wrong. Please bring it up with Project Music's leader, Umeko. For now we'll leave it out until this issue gets resolved. Jellotalk 17:25, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Card pages

Your work on making card pages is excellent! Keep up the good work! All I ask is that you put in the "transdex" option with the English Black 2 and White 2 Pokédex entries. MaverickNate 20:56, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Now that we are working on the cards at the same time, I ask that you stick to the Spiral Force side. I just got edit conflicted with Zweilous, which just wasted about 10 minutes for me, lol. I'm going through Thunder Knuckle from top to bottom, and I'd just appreciate it. MaverickNate 06:11, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

A note about appropriate card pages to English release

I noticed you helping out with Plasma Storm a little bit. Something that I am compelled to tell you, however, is that you cannot link to an image that does not exist. I noticed you link to what the victory Piece image will be named, instead of where the file actually is. This can hinder display of the image, and it generally causes the page to be stuck in the broken file category even though the file exists. Preferably, you need to move the image before you finish the edit to the card page. If you must leave the image where it is, due to inexperience on the Archives, for example, please leave the image field in the card infobox unchanged. MaverickNate 07:15, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

I doubt I'll be able to edit the pages now, since if I edit the articles without editing the image, you have to probably edit the articles with the image again. As I think by doing that, it'll be troublesome for you, and even add another history to the pages. --Ruixiang95 (talk) 09:14, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day and make sure you contribute to our mainspace more than your userspace. This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our server. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! ----Pokemaster97 21:07, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Improvement notes

Hello! I noticed you finish out the Legendary Treasures cards. First off, thank you! After the first 115, I was pretty dead tired of doing it anymore. I just wanted to send you a few notes of improvement for next time, if you are interested in appropriating cards for their English release.

  • 1)Make sure to remove the {{TCG Unreleased}} template from the top of card pages. Those are only for Japanese only cards, and it should be removed upon the English release.
  • 2)The set category always needs to be added. This one was Category:Legendary Treasures cards. It typically gets added directly above whatever the Japanese equivalent category is.
  • 3)Make sure to update the appropriate Category:Cards by Pokémon pages that need to be updated whenever you do a bunch. I noticed a few EX Battle Boost cards that weren't ever added to those pages, and that can be prevented as long as we keep on adding them whenever we make changes to any card page.

There were a few instances where you called the Japanese equivalent of the Radiant Collection cards "EX Battle Boost", or forgot to change a "Shiny Collection" here or there, but otherwise everything else was spot on. Images can only currently be moved by staff, so I wasn't expecting you to grab that part. Good job overall! I really appreciated the help. MaverickNate 03:19, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
