Welcome to Bulbapedia, Team Rocket Grunt!

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!

Near-universal TMs

Why did you undo my edit to near-universal TMs? sumwun (talk) 18:48, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

User pages

Do not edit other people's user pages. You may wish to familiarize yourself with the userspace policy. Tiddlywinks (talk) 23:49, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Preview button

Next time you edit an article, use the preview button at the bottom left corner of your editing screen. It will allow you to look at your edits before you actually submit them. That way, you don't have to make unnecessarily consecutive edits to a single article. Thank you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:04, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

I know. I'm just surprised how many times I can find a new example that I now think this list wasn't supposed to be complete. I'll try to do it without as many saves.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 22:07, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
Okay. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:15, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Type tables

Please don't change the formatting of the table is it doesn't affect how the table will look, it is unnecessary. Thank you.--ForceFire 03:44, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

If it is unnecessary then it shouldn't bother you, it made the code clearer and shorter in page length. Also, I've changed how are presented pokestar studios opponents. I'm insisting on restoration my changes.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 10:34, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
It also added more unnecessary bytes than it had before. It didn't shorten page length at all... if you mean within the editing box, then that's not a problem, as there are other things that are longer. And the coding doesn't need to be made "more clearer", it's fine the way.--ForceFire 12:13, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
There were more bytes, because I've added many spaces. It's much more pleasing this way in my opinion and you have really no reason care about it, but you're against as always.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 12:39, 8 July 2019 (UTC)


Never use Serebii as a source. The site is a secondary source so is necessarily unreliable, but more importantly, the site has specifically requested we don't use their content. --SnorlaxMonster 12:59, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

Fine, I won't, that's not the first time I found an error there. This table wasn't even finished then. By the way, nice changing of message.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 13:49, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

Something to say

  1. What country are you from because I saw you adding that Clefairy and Clefable had somewhat different Polish names in EP006.
  2. See what I have written on Template talk:Bag2.

Have a nice day, TheICTLiker4 19:14, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

Of course I'm Polish and I've seen ForceFire reverted your edit, which I prefered. And I've also seen Bag2. I don't really understand how does it work, but it seems fine and someone really should decide if to change this template but it's always hard to get one of admins' attention.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 09:12, 12 March 2020 (UTC)


As you have repeatedly shown a complete lack of compliance in regards to making major changes to templates, including changing the look of it and making very unnecessary minor changes, you have been blocked for a week. I have told you numerous times already, you cannot make major changes to a template without asking on the talk page first. Even if no one responds, ask a [staff] member directly. No response does not give you the right to just make the edit. Do not do as you please. If you return and continue to make any major templates changes without asking first, you will be blocked for longer. Thank you.--ForceFire 16:12, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

Dex entries

We only add anime dex entries if the dex entry is about the subject itself, passing mentions do not count.--ForceFire 05:54, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hello. I have noticed that you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently, and have made a total of 4+ userspace edits today. Please do not edit the userspace any more, as the userspace policy limits the amount you can edit your userpage: No more than three edits per day (by UTC), and you must contribute to the mainspace more than you edit your user page(s). This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our servers. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal page(s). The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your user page(s). Thank you. --ForceFire 17:05, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Please take note that you are required to contribute to the mainspace, and do so more than you edit your userpage. Just limiting yourself to 3 edits a day does not make it all "okay". Tiddlywinks (talk) 03:02, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
Does it count that I've made a lot of contribution to the mainspace over the years? I'm also working exclusively on things that I intend to move on the mainspace.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 11:13, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
No, you can't stock up any kind of "credit".
I honestly wasn't looking at the content since it was your base userpage and most people just use that for personal info. If you'd like to move it to a subpage but still keep it all together (instead of one for each subject), some people like making a userspace sandbox. Edits to that would be more immediately distinct. And we do generally give allowance for work intended for the mainspace. Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:19, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
I've practically finished and would like to show my work to the staff. What would be the best way to do that? I really don't want to get ignored or be left with just the negative answer.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 22:15, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
Start by asking someone. If it's not answered, you can ask someone else. If you don't like the answer you can appeal higher (if possible). Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:42, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Unnecessary edits

You're still making unnecessary edits to templates and changing the design of it without permission (changing the colors counts as changing the design). Please cease the pointless edits to templates as they change nothing and please start a discussion on the talk page first if you want to change the colors of the template. Thank you.--ForceFire 16:54, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

So, can I change the colors because one page really shouldn't use two different ones for each gender?--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 16:59, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Yes, you may.--ForceFire 17:07, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
My edit also contained other changes. Are these alright?--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 17:10, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Putting the coding of the cells in one row is pointless and changes nothing, so not that, leave them separated. Anything else is fine.--ForceFire 17:13, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
I will make the edit now. Tell me if there is something you don't agree with.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 17:17, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
The new changes are fine.--ForceFire 09:36, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Proposed templates

Please don't make templates in the mainspace. If you want to propose a template, create it in your userspace first and wait for it to get approved. Thank you.--ForceFire 04:14, 11 June 2020 (UTC) Ok. Sorry, I didn't know such template already exists.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 11:31, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

Gender table

I think the same episodes (and same instigator in them) for example DP142 and the Togepi, BW007 and the Snivy, and Emolga in the episodes it’s used for (without combining episodes, of course) should be rowspanned if possible--KnightGalarie (talk) 19:24, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for taking an interest in my little project. Well, it is still far from finished and after that I still would have to convince the staff about adding it to the mainspace so there is time until we talk about cosmetics.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 19:58, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
Oh I know its current state. I’m not talking about mainspacing. I wouldn’t call it cosmetics, more aesthetic, but what I’m talking about is more its structure. I don’t think we need to see the same episode mentioned 5 or 6 times, just let the first instance stretch as necessary. Same for repeated instances of the instigator within the episode. It’s a structural thing, which is important.--KnightGalarie (talk) 20:01, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
It's much easier to work with what it is now and it will stay this way. I personally don't think it should be connected because every use of Attract is a seperate incident.--Rocket Grunt (Report To Me) 11:01, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
