Welcome to Bulbapedia, JaxomNC!

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 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! -- G50 23:32, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for the remark, I will see what I can do for this in the future. As someone who re-reads a lot of text in order to find out most of the spelling errors or grammatical mis-constructs I write (because I am dyslexic and not native English speaker) I do know what the Preview button does. Same for the Minor Edit check box. Also In other wikia I have participated in the past, the rule was to edit specific sub-portions of the page, not wholesome pages. Same when editing code in CSM (I am a programmer) BTW as you want to keep changes the most atomic possible. JaxomNC (talk) 23:50, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Abra community day date

Where did you see that Abra's day is March 15? My phone is telling me it's postponed, but has no date listed. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 01:37, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

Oops, wrong person. Please disregard that message. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 01:41, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
No worries. Cheers. JaxomNC (talk) 02:33, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

× vs X

I was noticing that you exclusively use the alphabetical x rather than the multiply sign ×. For the sake of consistency across articles (and to save time on tons of retroactive edits) can you use the multiply × on edits going forward? You can easily find it on the Character palette on the bottom of each edit form. Thanks. TehPerson (talk) 15:33, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
