Welcome to Bulbapedia, Thingamajig257!

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:Thingamajig257/(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! --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 06:18, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Something you should know: Instead of writing out [[James's Cacnea|Cacnea]], you can just do {{TP|James|Cacnea}} to get the same result. Check out the list of link templates for more infomration. Thank you for your contributions. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 06:18, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Signature Linking

Please link your username in your signature as [[User:Thingamajig257|Thingamajig257]] or {{u|Thingamajig257}}, NOT simply [[Thingamajig257]]. Doing it the last way adds your username as an unwanted link on our wanted pages, something that's frowned upon here. --Shiningpikablu252 16:25, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Arrowroot Town

Please don't move it again. Poké has been occasionally wrong, therefore we wait for the episode to air before we change things. Thank you. --Psyライダー 11:28, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

The CotD from the episode is also similarly treated, and as such, we don't treat her as if she has a "confirmed English name" based on an online preview of the same type that called Roland "Ian". There've been discrepancies between online previews/reviews and the actual episodes even before the "Ian" incident, and as such, we always wait until the episode itself actually airs before reflecting dub names. If there's any doubt, we leave it out. --Shiningpikablu252 17:12, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Black and White Theme

That is the title that is listed in the credits of the movie itself. --The Great Butler 23:36, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
