Welcome to Bulbapedia, Dmp5001!

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:Dmp5001/(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! Martonimos((Talk)) 09:29, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

disambiguation pages

could you please not link Pokemon in the debut section of episodes to disambiguation pages?

use charmander instead of charmander

just click edit this page and look at the difference --Hey1031 19:37, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Koffing}} instead of just [[Koffing]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. --Shiningpikablu252 16:52, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Seconded, please do check out how to use the link templates. -Dr. Ookido 17:19, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{a|Sturdy}} instead of just [[Sturdy]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

Also, can you give me an episode name on which these abilities were confirmed?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:11, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
How could Butterfree even have a ability when they were introduced in Generation III??? Jmath 21:24, 7 January 2009 (UTC)


Even though the Pokémon have abilities, Bulbapedia's policy on abilities is for them to remain unknown unless seen or spoken. --PsychicRider 21:13, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Please stop adding them, unless you can provide proof of their abilities.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:20, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Cynthia's Gastrodon

Please stop creating a page for Cynthia's Gastrodon. It is not notable enough to have its own page, as not enough information is known about it. Thank you. --Theryguy512 18:36, 8 March 2009 (UTC)


Paul and Tyler NEVER said they got their Pokémon from Rowan. Just because that it is there start Pokémon doesn't automatically mean they got it from Rowan. In fact in DP003, Paul met Rowan for the first time. AG034 mentions that Nurse Joy has the authority to hand out starters as well when the Trainer doesn't live nearby the local professor lab. So please, don't assume these things. --ケンジガール 09:19, 12 June 2009 (UTC)


Hey, be sure to always use {{p|}} when linking to a Pokémon instead of [[ ]]. For more info, please see the List of link templates. Thanks. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:50, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Voice actors

Please do not guess voice actors. DuArt has asked us not to do so, and the staff now has better ways of finding out. In the future, please have a proper source before you add this info. Thanks. サトシ101 (talk) 20:58, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Again, provide a source for a voice actor. If you don't have one, don't put it in. glikglak 19:41, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Voice actors, again

It seems you were warned before about suddenly putting in VAs, so I'll have to reiterate: cite an external source for the information you're implementing. Don't just expect me to take your word for it, especially since I don't have access to DP028 and therefore cannot see the closing credits. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:12, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Closing credits are not credible sources since they do not say who played who. And playing by ear is not a source either, since other voice actors can make similar voices. You can get source by asking the VA director on any social media platform.--ForceFire 05:00, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
