Welcome to Bulbapedia, 050294!

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.
  • 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 if there is a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! TTEchidnaGSDS! 05:13, 4 January 2008 (UTC) Also. Please, please. Do not add unconfirmed genders. Tina δ 18:37, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates!

Please use LINK TEMPLATES!!! For example, would you rather link to Marill and Azurill, both diambig. pages, or Marill and Azurill? --Theryguy512 15:35, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Also, make sure you use correct punctuation. --Theryguy512 15:50, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Dude! Seiously! Put periods at the end of sentences! --Theryguy512 16:14, 2 March 2008 (UTC)


Dude! For the third time, use correct punctuation! Put periods at the end of sentences! Also, I reverted your edit on The Rise of Darkrai once, so why did you just put it in again? --Theryguy512 16:27, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Okay, slow down and make sure you can spell appearance properly, got it? ~Kenn 16:49, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
People, please don't yell at new usersPokeManiac102 16:57, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

PokeManiac102 05:56, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Once again, use the link templates, especially for the Pokémon. TTEchidna 08:16, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Please help!

How do I edit my user page? It won't let me, I usually can at other wiki sites... please help! ~~050294

Ani Cons

we dont use the enimated icons on those pages. all those animations in one space can slow down even an above average PC. its better for individual peoples computers, what with some folks out there still using Win 95. -- MAGNEDETH 03:45, 5 June 2008 (UTC)


I apologize if you've already taken care of this, but as far as I can tell, your signature has images in it, which is in violation of the new signature policy. Review the policy, then edit your sig to match (assuming, of course, that you haven't done so already). --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 07:22, 5 June 2008 (UTC)


You need to use the link templates, as well as just learn where the things you link to are. For example, it's Pokémon anime, not just anime, and Tail Glow (move), not Tail glow (move). For a crash course on link templates, see the list of link templates. You should also look at your contributions and look at how I changed the additions you made to see what you should be doing differently.

Feel free to come to me with any questions. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 23:54, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Lol, sorry XD But, eh, thanks :D

I have been doing well on my contributions BESIDES the link templates, right? XD

It took a while to find some of the things I've found XD --User:050294 20:39, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Mostly, yeah. Like I said, look at the changes myself and others have made to your additions for more specific examples. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 00:50, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks SO much :D --050294 21:00, 3 August 2008 (UTC)


Please do not create articles for Pokémon belonging to characters of the day. They are non-notable and only need to be mentioned on the character of the day's page. --PAK Man Talk 13:59, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Personal images

Thank you MoldyOrange 15:41, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Aw, man, why? Well, that sucks. I've seen several people with personal images :| Like User:David_aipom. I mean, he has some useful sprites, but the egg ones I think are uneeded, and I have never seen them used. Natalie 11:35, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Is there any way I can keep them?

If not, the ones I want to keep are:

a:File:Chusmokesprite.PNG‎ and a:File:050294trainersprite.png‎

It is just because the archives is supposed to be used for actual pictures and images that can be used in the mainspace, that is why there is a limit. If you upload them through photobucket, you can have as many as you want. David Aipom uploaded his images through photobucket, so there isn't a problem, you are able to do the same. MoldyOrange 15:41, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, I just learned that a minute ago and was going to reply. Thanks for bringing this to my attention about this personal image policy.Natalie 11:44, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
I'll give you some time to switch the images so that you can have everything still. Tell me when you finished moving them over to the image hosting site. MoldyOrange 15:46, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Are you finished switching over the images? MoldyOrange 17:16, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
YesNatalie 1:22, 30 August 2008 (UTC)


U could've just moved the page to the correct title--KukiTalk 16:44, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

I don't know how, sorry. Could you tell me? Natalie 12:46, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

The button that says move (it is next to history)--KukiTalk 16:47, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks :) Natalie 12:57, 31 August 2008 (UTC)


Sorry about this, but I'm obligated by my duties to remind you of our relatively new signature policy. Your signature must reflect your username, so signing as "Natalie" is inappropriate. If you're having second thoughts about your username, Zhen Lin may be willing to change it. Thank you. --ニョロトノ666 17:40, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Woops, sorry XD

Mystery Dungeon 2 Player

A usertag you have been using, {{User Mystery Dungeon 2}}, has been moved to a new location due to a split in the usertag between the two versions. Your tag has been switched to that template's new location, {{User Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time}}. If you only play Explorers of Darkness, you can reflect it by changing the tag to {{User Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Darkness}}. --Shiningpikablu252 01:51, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Your User tags...

They cut off halfway and spread the entire creen.Did you o that on purpose or do you want them all to the side?--DCM

I did it on purpose -*- 050294

Custom Sprites

The Custom Sprites page has been moved here, to the main space.--Tavisource 04:06, 28 September 2008 (UTC)


Gabite's the one with healing scales, not Garchomp. And why did you put some of Gabite's behavior on Garchomp's page? Palkiajosh 19:54, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

    • Because, if you think about it, if one has magic scales, all probably do, and Garchomps behavior is not fully known (As behavior has not been seen except in two episodes so far) so I just added it. 050294 21:12, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

But if we don't know for sure, should we really have it there? It's kinda like saying Pikachu is a girl. パルキアJosh 00:53, 24 October 2008 (UTC)


You're seriously going to make THAT many subpages? I think it's a TAD bit too much. Maybe merging it will be better...or just summarize it ON the page... ht14 20:14, 24 December 2008 (UTC)


Impressive job on the Custom sprites! Thanks for your dedication and hard work! Although, I suggest giving yourself credit for the sprites by adding/changing your name in the coding. Add this to your user page.

{| class="userboxitem" style="border: 1px solid #96c; background: #{{gold color}}; {{#switch:{{{moz|yes}}}|yes=-moz-border-radius: 60px;|no=}}" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" ! style="background: gold; {{#switch:{{{moz|yes}}}|yes=-moz-border-radius: 60px;|no=}}" | [[Image:Ash's Squirtle2.png|60px]] | style="background: #{{gold color}}; color: gold; {{#switch:{{{moz|yes}}}|yes=-moz-border-radius: 60px;|no=}}" | This user hereby receives recognition for outstanding contribution to the [[Project:Project Custom Sprites|<span style="color: gold;">Custom Sprites Project</span>]]! |}

--Tavisource 03:43, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Having problems with that? Yeah, you were. Now it's fixed. —darklordtrom 20:53, 15 September 2009 (UTC)


Please don't steal things from It's not good for us...You're ripping his hard work AND pics and using it as ours when we don't have something...Next time please don't steal things from Serebii...--Psyライダー 00:39, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Re: Shiny Tips?

I'm glad you checked out my User page, which is a bit outdated. To make it simple, most of my shinies were gotten using the easiest LEGIT method there is, soft-resetting.
In my oppinion, soft-resetting is the fastest & simplest way of getting a shiny. Why you ask? Just save before "seeing" the Pokémon you want and be patient until it shines.
That's how I got the starters, which took me 2 days/6 hours each, & Groudon, which took me 2 whole weeks & gave me a hell of a fight, by the way.
Surskit was randomly found while a swarm was taking place on Route 120, and I was actually looking for an Absol.
Finally, to get Poochyena I saved on Route 103 and repeated this: encounter 10 random Pokémon then restart.
All I recommend to any Pokémon Fan/Trainer who wants to get/find/catch an alternate color Pokémon is to be determined and persistent. Also, a bit of luck is always welcome.
Hope this could help! ~SaitoFX 05:10, 29 April 2010 (UTC)


I noticed on the Archives that you have been uploading static versions of the animated overworld sprites, as seen here and here. If you find any pages that are in need of these sprites, please let me know, so I can upload animated versions of them. Since there are so many left to upload, I usually only upload them when there is a need for it. Thanks. Jello 03:05, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

@Jello, Nero, Floatzel, Rampardos and Cranidos; Metang and Beldum; Mothim and Burmy; have priority. ht14 03:30, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Hey (2)

Just so you know, the type idea... it's not confirmed yet. Can you refrain from doing so at the moment? We'll standardize that later. ht14 22:45, 19 May 2010 (UTC)


Hey 050, I noticed that you included crunch' in ash's gibles moves used section however it was never even commanded by Ash then how can you be possibly sure that it was crunch? It can be bite as well. We never include any attack until it's commanded or mentioned by character himself. Crunch was not mentioned in the dub version and not in the original japanese version either. So, please do not add such kind of info on articles in the future. Thank you. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 02:48, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Guardian Signs

Was released today. I bought it. --ZestyCactus 04:07, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps some shops only get their shipments on Tuesdays? I know Tuesday is a common day of the week for game releases. P.S. I live in Canada 8D --ZestyCactus 04:12, 5 October 2010 (UTC)


I noticed you said Kibry Wikia. Bulbapedia (and WiKirby) are completely unrelated to Wikia which is a for-profit arm of the WikiMedia foundation. Bulbapedia and WiKirby are part of NIWA, which is an organization opposed to Wikia. More detail here. --SnorlaxMonster 10:30, 7 October 2010 (UTC)


The Pokemon has the idea of Japan a lot. Procambarus clarkii is named a アメリカザリガニ(american crayfish) in Japan. The pattern of the body is very similar to the national flag.

The act of the deletion is improper. The act of you whom even the guess doesn't permit is insincere. Sawamular101 11:53, 14 October 2010 (UTC)


The artwork has been in the archives for a month now, you know. Thanks, Kevzo8 08:32, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Burungel and Pringles

Why not? It's a funny bit of trivia that comes from how similar the male Burungel looks to the mascot of Pringles. I didn't put it origins or anywhere stupid like that. --Mackinz of SoulSilver 14:22, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, but we try to discourage look-a-like trivia or fan theories unless we can prove there is some sort of basis for this. Take Smugleaf, for example. We were only able to mention that on the Tsutarja article after an official magazine mentioned the moniker. —darklordtrom 10:12, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Then how is "Nugai" still mentioned on Paul's page? It never got anything but fan-treatment, nothing official about it. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 11:43, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Since when is "Trivia" supposed to be officially announced? Isn't trivia supposed to be the funny little tidbits people may or may not notice without reading the "Trivia" section?--Mackinz of SoulSilver 15:13, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Excuse me

Can you please tell me why you reverted my edit to Agirudaa? --Poppy :3 18:27, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Because it's not implied that it's shell was taken, it's confirmed (also I'm sure that everyone call see that it's shell was taken) Ataro 18:34, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, it is mentioned on its and Shubargo's Pokédex entries.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 18:39, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflicted: So why remove it, then? There's no mention of this in Agirudaa's page - only the physiology section for Shubarugo has it.) That doesn't mean it shouldn't be mentioned in Agirudaa's page, it's relevant to both of them. --Poppy :3 18:42, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
There is; in Special abilities and in Dex entries. It is not trivia nor belong there.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 18:52, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
The Special Abilities section does not specifically mention that the recipient of its shell is Shubarugo, and the Pokédex entry is hardly an obvious place to look given that the face text is currently in Japanese (and yes, I do know that a translation is given by mousing over). It should be mentioned specifically in the physiology section. --Poppy :3 18:57, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
Anyone mind if we move this discussion to the relevant talk page? --Poppy :3 18:58, 28 October 2010 (UTC)


I didn't mean to hit the rollback link. I realized I did, but it was too late. Sorry MaverickNate 07:58, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

It's alright. This stuff happens every once in a while. - 050294 08:02, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Quit editing the version exclusive page!

Your logic that Pokemon obtained only by breeding are not exclusives means that no Pokemon are exclusive to any version save legendaries, as since they can be bred in other versions, they are thus not exclusives.

Edit Warring

It is very against the rules. There is no reason to edit war when there's a talk page begging to be used for discussion. As per the rules you are blocked one day per revert, minus the initial edit. You reverted 4 times, so you are being blocked for 4 days. You've done a lot of good work around here, so I do hope you heed this warning and remember next time. -- MAGNEDETH 05:25, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Elemental monkeys

Do not add information on the Cardinal Sins in their origins. You have just come back from a block due to edit warring. You don't want another one, do you? If you disagree, you should discuss it on the talk pages. You've been here long enough to know that. --ケンジガール 05:46, 18 November 2010 (UTC)


Hi, for Pokémon disambiguation pages it's being changed now so that Pokémon names redirect directly to the page on the species and not the the disambiguation page. Pikiwyn talk 23:07, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Whirlwind Pokemon

Tornelos and Erufuun do not share the same species name. Tornelos is the せんぷうポケモン and Erufuun is the かぜかくれポケモン. They are different. They just share the same fan-made name on here because Erufuun's name was translated poorly. (Yaminokame 23:02, 1 December 2010 (UTC))

Exactly what part of it looks like a rabbit or hare? Seriously... Have you ever seen one, let alone a koala? Dragoness 09:05, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! --Crystal Talian 22:23, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Ah, did I accidentally remove any comments? I didn't see any of them removed myself; I was trying to remove an old table I made a long time ago to make the talk page "fancy" because it's an eyesore now. Is removing the table that I custom made, that simply surrounded the talk page comments, considered removing comments? - 050294 (talk) 22:30, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Ah nevermind, I get it. I had forgotten about talk page rules; I haven't been editing on bulbapedia in a long, long time so I'm not too familiar with them anymore. I suppose I'll archive it then, my apologies. - 050294 (talk) 22:40, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
