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! --Crystal Talian 23:01, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Pokémon Biology

Hello, I've noticed you've been adding to the biology sections on Pokemon pages. You're doing a good job, but there are a couple of things I wanted to address. First, try to avoid too many subjective adverbs and adjectives, as they make the article sound biased or opinion-based which is something we try to avoid. Second, while the more detailed sections are nice, some them are a bit too long. You don't need to be so specific and try not to repeat the same information several times. Third, don't put Abilities in the "Special abilities" section. That section is for talents and traits other than actual Abilities, which are listed in the infobox. Other than that, you're doing fine. Thanks! Crystal Talian 05:43, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

I wanted to thank you for your kindness, it's probably annoying doing so much reading and re-editing! I appreciate your kind tone. I'll try to make my contributions more objective in the future, and it's good to know that Abilities don't belong under Special Abilities. Thanks for the guidance, and I believe I will continue to edit Biologies to the best of my ability! Thanks! (Did I respond correctly? If not, how can I learn how to do that?)

Don't worry, it's not annoying. Your response is very good. The only thing you need to do next time is indent your reply. To do this, just add a colon (:) to the start of your message. Put one more colon than the person above you did. This makes it easier to tell who is speaking in longer conversations. If you'd like some helpful links, check the welcome template right at the top of this page. And thank you for your dedication. Have fun! Crystal Talian 06:19, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
