Welcome to Bulbapedia, Agggron!

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.
  • 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 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.
  • 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 (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). 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. 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.
  • 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. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Agggron/(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!--Shiningpikablu252 22:46, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Welcoming New Users

Just a suggestion, but I think instead of typing out everything in the welcome paragraph, it's easier to just type {{subst:welcome}}. I noticed that when you welcomed Cloud Ruki, it appeared you typed out the entire paragraph. Trust me, using the shortlink will be a lot easier on your life. --PAK Man Talk 13:55, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Signature Policy

...I really should make a template for this message. Anyway...

Not sure wat your current signature is (you haven't edited in a while), but images are disallowed as per the new Signature Policy (text-only rule). Everything else is golden, as far as I can tell.
Oh, the only other suggestion I would make is to sign your comments with four tildes, so it automatically adds a timestamp (22:01, 24 April 2008 (UTC)) at the end of your signature. Makes it much easier for other users to see when a comment was made, and it's a lot easier for you (as opposed to marking the time or date manually). But that's not a rule, of course. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:01, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Your new evolutions pages

We're asking that Bulbapedia users limit themselves to only two sub-pages; your new evolutions push you far above that limit. I'd suggest merging all the pages into one master article, and then deleting the individual pages. That way, all the information is conserved, and finding the individual Pokémon is as easy as browsing through the Table of Contents. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 21:47, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
