Welcome to Bulbapedia, YOLO2468!

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!

Link templates

Just so it'll be easier on you, there are a few link templates you can use instead of doing the standard [[Name of Article|Word you want to show]]. For example, if you just want to write Ash, you can just use the template {{Ash}} instead of [[Ash Ketchum|Ash]] and you'll link to Ash. For towns you can use {{to|name of town}}, so you can write {{to|Lilypad}} instead of [[Lilypad Town|Lilypad]] which will still link to Lilypad. The same is true for cities, replacing "to" with "ci". The list of link templates should help you out. Also, when doing episode titles, they should be italicized with three apostrophes (''') instead of quotation marks. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 17:19, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Oh... Sorry, I'm new to this editing stuff. To be honest, I did refer to those templates before editing the article, but when I saw the list I went: -_- screw this, I'm doing the long way. Thanks for the advice though, I'll keep it in mind in future. YOLO2468 (talk) 04:18, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
