Welcome to Bulbapedia, Luckario!

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.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • 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:Luckario/(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! --MoldyOrange 17:27, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Userspace Content

Please don't put content meant for the User namespace in the main namespace. Such an action constitutes trying to get around the lockdown on the User namespace, and as such are easy targets for deletion. Please wait until the lockdown ends to put up userspace material. --Shiningpikablu252 20:53, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Editing People's Userpages

NO. People have them the way they want. Stop. Porygon-Z 17:47, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

You are only allowed to edit other people's Userpage if they allow you to. Stop, or there will be consequences. MoldyOrange 17:56, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks you two. I just noticed on the recent changes. Please Dont do it again.--Davidaipom 18:19, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Ok I understand I won't do it again and sorry! Luckario 22:07, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{m|Counter}} instead of just [[Counter]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. --Shiningpikablu252 17:54, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Additionally, when using the {{type}} template, please make sure that you follow style. When listing off a bunch of types, it'd be better to do Ground-, Rock-, and Ice-types, rather than Ground-type-, Rock-type-, and Ice-types, because the former looks stupid. We're not trying to replace all instances of {{t}} with {{type}}; we could do that easily. We want to use them in the correct places. TTEchidna 03:44, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
I think you mean "latter," not "former," since the first version looks a lot better than the second version. - s.Combusken 03:46, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I goofed. TTEchidna 04:16, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
