Welcome to Bulbapedia, AD2011!

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!

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! --Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:56, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Just a reminder to use the preview button when you edit. Thanks! --It's Funktastic~!話してください 18:10, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Generation II

I can't speak for Dennou Zenshi or Zesty Cactus, but since neither of them seem to have made an effort to inform you why they reverted your trivium on the "Generation II" page, I thought I should come here and say it's incredibly likely that it's because now Generations I, II, and VI have introduced new types, so it's no longer notable. For the same reason that "first to do X since the last time something did X" isn't notable, "only one to do X except this other one that also did X" isn't notable either. The trivia sections would balloon out-of-control if we included all the almost-but-not-quite-unique things. Better to just keep it to unique trivia. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 20:18, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Exactly. It wasn't so different than something like "Prior to Generation V, Bruno was the only Fighting-type specialist in Elite Four" or "Prior to EP030, Bulbasaur was Ash's only Poison type.", both of which sound stupid--Den Zen 20:44, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Talk page policy

Please do not remove other users comments per the Bulbapedia Talk page policy. --Landfish7 21:34, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

According to the Talk page policy, "This page is your user talk page. Even so, you still need to abide by the rules of the talk page policy on this page. Don't remove comments, including your initial welcome message." --Landfish7 21:47, 14 June 2013 (UTC)


Just to let you know, I've now tested (in Diamond) using both Safeguard and Light Screen on my own team and then using Defog, and Defog didn't clear either of them from my team. When I got a Ditto to Transform and use Safeguard, though, Defog did remove it.

I also used Stealth Rock on a wild Pokemon and then used Defog, and Stealth Rock was cleared. Then I got a Ditto to use Stealth Rock on my team, and Defog didn't clear it away.

You say you have experience in competetive battling. If that's on physical games and consoles, then perhaps you could give more details on the circumstances in which you're seeing Defog affecting the user's side of the field instead of the target's. If not, though, then it is very likely that whatever software you may be using to enjoy your competitive scene is not working correctly. Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:42, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Trivia - Gulpin and Water Gun

If a Pokémon in the anime uses a move that it cannot legally learn in any form, anywhere, it's an error as far as we see it. CycloneGU (talk) 03:15, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Signing and Edit Summary

Please remember to sign your comments with four tildes or by clicking the signature box on the edit box. You also may not re-sign an unsigned comment as it gives off the wrong timestamp. Also, please watch your language when writing edit summaries. I know it'll most likely not be viewed or seen by children, but still, please keep them clean and civil.--ForceFire 03:26, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
