Welcome to Bulbapedia, Icycatelf!

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!

Talk page policy

Hey! Next time you leave a message on a talk page, always be sure it's signed with four tildes (~). Thank you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:45, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

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 Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Also, if you want to edit multiple sections of the page, make sure that you click "edit this page" at the top of the page rather than editing it by section. Thanks! --ForceFire 04:32, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

I do use the preview button, but I've got a nasty habit of wanting to change things I've made/posted even after "perfecting" them. It's not a problem on most sites I frequent, but I can see how it could be a nuisance here. I'll try to edit my additions less frequently in the future! Icycatelf (talk) 04:45, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
Sorry for multiple edits again. I tried adding a thumbnail to Kakuna's trivia section but seem to have messed up the formatting (not being able to see the whole article with the preview button didn't help matters). I'd keep trying but I'd probably get scolded. Hopefully someone else can fix it!Icycatelf (talk) 18:01, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

Linking Pokémon articles

Hey! Whenever you link a Pokémon article, any Pokémon article, please use the {{p}} template, otherwise you're leaving behind a redirect. For example, {{p|Ariados}} is the correct usage, not [[Ariados]]. Thank you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:05, 24 October 2019 (UTC)


Please don't use definitive wording (X is based off) unless you have a source to back up your claim. Otherwise, use terms like "may be" or "appears to be", regardless of how obvious the origin is. Thank you.--ForceFire 17:21, 24 December 2019 (UTC)

The Preview Button 2

Just a reminder that when editing any page on the wiki, please make sure to use the Preview Button first. It is right beside Save Changes and will save you a headache of having to re-edit the page or section multiple times. Thank you. Frozen Fennec 16:05, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
