Welcome to Bulbapedia, Spideym!

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 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.
  • 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! TESHIGIGAS 18:03, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Talk Pages

It's good to see you're discussing articles on talk pages, as opposed to having a conversation like many other contributors here, but it is a requirement that you end each post with ~~~~. These four tildes will automatically put your signature at the end of each post, and let others know who is saying what, and when. To change your signature, go to Special:Preferences. Thanks, and have a great new year. — THE TROM — 08:14, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Please read the above, again, please. — THE TROM — 09:15, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Please do not swear


Please do not swear, like you did here, there could quite likely be children viewing that talkpage. If there is, they will copy you.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 17:24, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Swearing isn't against Bulba policy. R.A. Hunter Blade 00:08, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
