Welcome to Bulbapedia, Bcbrwk!

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:Bcbrwk/(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.
  • There are certain restrictions on the content and amount of userspace content a user is allowed. For details, see the Userspace policy
  • Unless prior permission is given, no user is permitted to edit another user's page. Furthermore, edits to other users' pages are permitted only if there are problems that spread to other parts of Bulbapedia, such as broken links that appear on the wanted pages, switching out duplicate images that appear on the Archives, etc.
  • Fan fictions, missions, riddles, games, and anything else deemed not suitable for the wiki will not be allowed. If you would like to add something, but do not know if it is acceptable, ask an administrator.
  • A list of administrators that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --Billy4b2004 08:56, 22 November 2008 (UTC) Any arguments that are e-mailed to me will be posted up here. so, see you later.

How to link categories on wikis.

Well, you know how just linking as you would something in the Bulbapedia namespace (as [[Bulbapedia:Manual of style]] or something) causes the page to be categorized. So here's a way around that.

Put a colon in front of the link. Wanna link to the category on Gen III Pokémon? [[:Category:Generation III Pokémon]]. Or you can use the {{cat}} link template, so as to make it easier. Images, if they are to be linked with text (instead of appearing in-line or something), use the same protocol. File:155MS.gif is this image right here: a:File:155MS.gif.

Make sure the page exists before you create it. Tina δ 20:34, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

I believe Tina meant to say make sure the page does not exist. Zurqoxn 02:39, 17 December 2007 (UTC)


Look at this page ->User:TinaTheKirlia/Fun/Sig, this will help you.うずまきハルカ 19:23, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Ah and grammar

Try to keep it good, and not-chatspeaky. Meaning, the second-person pronoun is "you", not "u". "U" is the symbol for uranium. No need to be quick when editing a wiki's talk page, as they aren't instantaneous communications. TTEchidnaGSDS! 20:28, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Project Shadow

Thanks for joining! TheEspeonMaster-- 20:29, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Project Purge

What's Project Purge? I got on just after it was deleted. Shiny?! 21:50, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

But what is it? Shiny?! 21:56, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

I joined! I think its a pretty good idea. The EspeonMaster-- 22:29, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

I am sorry to say that after further, um, aggravation, Project Purge is being discontinued. Not removed, but continued under cover. Sorry for any inconveniences.

Prickles...are Prickly!

I'm back!

After a very long break, I'm happy to say that I have come back! Not that many people will be happy...

Your signature

is misleading. Either change it or get lost forever (in which case, I hope you'll choose the latter) OptimatumTalk|05:37 13 Mar 2008
