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!

Old talk page sections

Hey there, according to our talk page policy, we aren't typically supposed to respond to talk page sections that have been left untouched for more than six months. If you want to bring up the topic again more than six months later, please start a new subheader instead of responding to an old one. Thanks! Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 07:17, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for the info! Jeangabin666 (talk) 07:28, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Empty sections

Please do not remove empty section on episode articles, leave them there to stay consistent with all of the other episode articles. Thank you.--ForceFire 12:05, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Drought trivia

Just so you are aware, drought trivia are considered notable, since the (generally) large time or episode difference is what makes is notable.--ForceFire 14:40, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

CotDs do NOT get history sections

Just so you are aware, characters of the days do not get history sections, they only appear in one episode. Why do you think they also don't have infoboxes? Only recurring characters of the "day" get history sections and infoboxes. Thank you.--ForceFire 09:40, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Redirects

FYI, redirects with alternate capitalizations, like "Battle Judge" for Battle judge, are not needed. The wiki is perfectly able to find the page if someone searches Battle Judge or battle judge or BatTLE JudGE.

Okay, thanks! Jeangabin666 (talk) 14:59, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
To chime in on this, I actually find the alternate-capitalization redirects really useful, since I often go to a page by entering the name into the browser's address bar, following /wiki/. It automatically corrects first-letter capitalization, but subsequent letters do matter, and it's a bit annoying to go to http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Battle_Judge and get told that no such page exists. --Felthry (talk) 15:01, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
Those redirects also encourage bad linking. People aren't exactly supposed to be "searching" by using the address bar anyway, and if you find yourself "missing" a page because you don't know the correct term, you should always be able to search the wiki (properly) to find what you're looking for.

Fair enough! --Felthry (talk) 15:33, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Thumb alignment

Can I ask you not to arbitrarily move thumbs to a left alignment? Most thumbs are just fine on the right side of the page and should be there.

Also, I'd like to note that using the preview button like here should help you catch such obvious mistakes, and may help you cut down on repeat edits in other places. You have plenty of time.

Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 18:51, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Moving pages

For good measure, I'll repeat myself a bit here:

Moves and similar propositions are to be decided by the Editorial Board. You're welcome to ask someone on staff, but please do not presume to fulfill them yourself no matter the lack of dissent or whatever.

Templates

As seen with your edit on BW022, I might let you know of a shortcut you can use when editing. By using {{m|Move}} or {{p|Pokémon}} among others that you can use as a shortcut in editing. Please use them in the future since it's more neat and tidy on the wiki. Thanks. Ice Cream 15:30, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Also, try to avoid pointless edits such as this one. [1]. There was seriously no need to swap the names around and it just ends up clogging up the Recent Changes. Thanks. Ice Cream 15:35, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
