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!

First post

Hi, my name is Bravebravesirbrian!

I have a question, why can't I create my own user page? I don't have permission.

To answer your question, you have to contribute to the mainspace several times, though the number of times is unknown, before that privilege is made available to you. The attached welcome message offers more insight into how things on Bulbapedia work. If you have any questions feel free to ask. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 01:21, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
I don't seem to be able to edit any pages. Do I need to make a certain number of mainspace edits to do that? Also, what is the mainspace? Bravebravesirbrian (talk) 01:40, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
Nevermind, I'm only unable to edit certain pages, such as the page about Galar. Is that page protected because it's new? Bravebravesirbrian (talk) 01:45, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
That's right, certain pages especially new ones like for the two new main series games are protected for most users. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 01:48, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

Linking Pokémon articles

Hey! Whenever you link Pokémon articles, it is always important to use the {{p}} template in order to avoid leaving behind a redirect. For example, {{p|Gumshoos}} is the correct usage, not [[Gumshoos]]. Thank you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:32, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
