Welcome to Bulbapedia, ** LV X **!

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:

** LV X **/(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! Glinn Mgraw 11:36, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Card Infoboxes

When adding, or replacing an image in a Card Article, you only need to change it like this: image= | to image=FILENAME.TYPE | If you remove the | from the line, the infobox will not work properly. Also, it is preferred that for card scans, that you use the JPG format instead of the PNG format. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 17:54, 6 November 2008 (UTC)


Slow down on editing the User: namespace. There are only three userspace edits allowed per day, and you have gone over the limit. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --- Kogoro | Talk to me | 18:09, 6 November 2008 (UTC)


Please do not directly copy & paste the wikicode of usertags. like you did with {{User Mudkip}}. Doing so will often add improper categories onto your userpage. (Such as this instance that added Meme tags to your userpage. If you wish to find usertags to use, please check User tags. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 18:18, 6 November 2008 (UTC)


This is your second warning. Please refrain from editing the User: namespace too rapidly, or you will lose privileges. --- Kogoro | Talk to me | 18:31, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Your Userpage

I just went and cleaned out what appeared to be a total nightmare.

1. You actually broke the Bulbapedia layout with poor wiki-coding.
2. Your page was categorised as you copied the source to {{User IE}}, rather than placing it correctly.

Preview Button

I love that you're adding info to pages, but can you please use the preview button instead of making a 'bazillion' edits??? Thank you. --Theryguy512 18:58, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

TCG card upgrade

Don't forget to replace these:

| ??
| ??
!English Card No.
| ???

with these: {{PokémoncardInfobox/Expansion|type=TCG type|expansion={{TCG|name of set}}|rarity=Image|cardno=Card No.}} {{PokémoncardInfobox/Footer|type=type|species=name}}
Okay? It's nice that your helping out. Thanks, ^^ Ҝəυzø8 09:48, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

For cards with 2 Resistances or 2 Weaknesses, the parameters are resistance2 and weakness2. Also, please remember to do what Kevzo has said above this. Not converting the sets, or adding the footer still leaves the infobox broken & incomplete. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 10:16, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for the advice! ** LV X ** 10:19, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

I hate to be a pain, but...

No images in signatures. This slows down our server. Do us a favor and take out your little dragon friend. —darklordtrom 10:06, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Done. LEVEL X Talk to me! 10:13, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
