Welcome to Bulbapedia, Gorebyss!

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 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:Gorebyss/(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! --Glinn Mgraw 13:05, 25 July 2008 (UTC)


Noticing your edits to Walrein's trivia section, I'd like to point out two things:

  • 1. It's = it is. "Some would mistake Walrein to have two more legs than a realistic walrus. it is lower legs are actually it is tail, covered with webbings." Not what you intended to put, I assume.
  • 2. And, you made several faulty edits with {{wp}}, which could easily have been prevented with the Preview Button, or by pressing alt+shift+p.--Kkllnn blastoise 20:12, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
I repeat my previous message, only I change #2 to "Pokémon is spelt with a capital P and an accented e. The latter can be accessed on the character palette below the editbox, by pressing Alt+130 on a PC, or option+e+e on a Mac."--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:49, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Again? It seems not to work...--Gorebyss 22:07, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
OK, but try using the one on the character palette. there are a bunch of symbols on there, and if you click one of them, then it will appear on the editbox. Observe.ÉéĀĒĪŌŪāēōūPoké・☆♥♪♫δ×♀♂←→↑↓-->--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:10, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Character palette? On my keyboard or...?- unsigned comment from Gorebyss (talkcontribs)
No, see that big boxy thing where you type stuff? Look below it. There's another box. Or you could always Ctrl+F "Character palette"--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:16, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
I literally need to type Alt+130 or...?--Gorebyss 22:18, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

This is difficultie...Hold Alt, go to the number pad on the right side of you keyboard, press, 1, press 3, and then press 0. Let go of everything and see what happens!--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:21, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

It doesn;t work :<...--Gorebyss 22:34, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, do you have an apostrophe button, at least?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:35, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

in the "Character palette" below the text box youre writing in, there is an é for you to use. -- MAGNEDETH 22:42, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Oops, sorry...

Yes, these are mere keyboard mistakes. Still, I will continue to help uploading all Platinum tutors.- unsigned comment from Gorebyss (talkcontribs)

Sign your comments please.--Kkllnn blastoise 20:30, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Like this? --Gorebyss 20:32, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Good.--Kkllnn blastoise 20:34, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Here you go, done with Omanyte/Omastar.--Gorebyss 20:47, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Am I a good contributer here?

Say the truth... --Gorebyss 07:03, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Well, you have been editing alot since your arrival (if you call less than 500 in 2 months alot) I'd say you need improvement. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links 09:09, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
How do I edit my profile here?--[IMG][/IMG] 09:41, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Preview Button

I've seen your edits, And you've edited Medicham 6 times! (3 for the Habitat and 3 for the Trivia). Next time preview your edit to see if you forgot something (Like move templates) before you save. --Force Fire 08:56, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm just to do my best for one of my favs :P ... --Gorebyss 09:06, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Again, make sure you're satisfied with your edit, If you see a mistake in your edit (Once you've pressed the preview button) change it. --Force Fire talk 09:10, 1 December 2008 (UTC)


It's good that you are using link templates, such as {{t|Fighting}}, but you don't have to use it every time the Fighting-type is mentioned.--HAH08 12:08, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

OK then... --Gorebyss 12:23, 1 December 2008 (UTC)


before i get to the topic at hand, you've been warned about the preview button, but you clearly aren't using it, please do.

the topic at hand being all the edits you made to some type characteristics. to be blunt, they were awful. you didn't check for spelling, proper grammar, link templates, links at all, and you broke the cardinal rule of the site; you spelled "Pokémon" wrong. now, im not saying you shouldn't edit, but, before editing such a large section riddled with lots of words, next time, you should take a crash course in proper grammar first.

but that being said, there's nothing wrong with our characteristics. they aren't big, but with their little size they explain a lot. you made one massive paragraph say the same a small paragraph did. but that sort of falls back onto grammar and English. so, just be aware of that next time.

you can read-up on our link templates, and general rule of thumb when editing a wiki, up there in your welcome template. id advise strolling through it. -- MAGNEDETH 00:42, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Damn keyboard mistakes...did you really think I don't know to spell pokemon? That only proves my edit wasn;t good regardless, as if I didn;t notice that, how could I notice greater details? I made a better edit now, I hope...--Gorebyss 18:21, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
Capital P, accented é, man. You can spell pokemon, but can you spell Pokémon? TTEchidna 00:10, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Dot, dot, you have the apostrophe button? You know the quote button? Next to the right Enter key... ht14 00:23, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Well, thanks for letting me know! --Gorebyss 09:02, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
