Welcome to Bulbapedia, Lulz!

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.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can 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 captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). 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. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • 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. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Lulz/(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! Tina 02:43, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Keep this in mind:

{{p}} is not the only link template there is. TTEchidna 18:29, 19 August 2008 (UTC)


This may seem rude, but chill out on the Metagame terminology page. You don't have to jump down his throat just because he disagrees with you and the rest of smogon.DCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 21:18, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

  • I have no intention of hurting anybody. The Wiki's purpose is to provide accurate information to the readers, and if you are going to have articles on Metagame terminology, you should assure that all information is accurate. I don't see the Garchomp edits as anything more than vandalism. And that is not "okay". I think that if you don't want to have these kinds of debates occurring on discussion pages, you should completely abandon any attempts to display competitive information, because these are the kind of discussions you will get.

They should be happening, but just cool it. No offense to choclate, but you are arguing with someone who has no knowledge of the metagame, therefore, he is gonna digree with most things you sayDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))
If he has no knowledge of the metagame, he shouldn't be editing the article. If I know little to nothing about marine biology, should I go around editing Wikipedia articles acting like I do? It's vandalism. Lulz] 17:59 18 December 2008 (EST)
True. But someone needs to explain to him the metagame, not yell at him about itDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))
He has stated himself that he is unwilling to revise his *incorrect* point of view. I'm trying to be as reasonable as possible against somebody who is being unreasonable. I am from places where my "tone" is considered acceptable and isn't seen as yelling. I'm sorry if that has not come across clearly here. Lulz] 17:59 18 December 2008 (EST)

Talk Page Comments

Please don't erase talk page comments for no reason. Trust me, you do NOT want to end up like Big Johnno, who got into an edit war with a sysop over comments the former had erased and was trying to keep erased. That user ended up blocked and subsequently had every erased comment restored. ----The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 23:02, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

I was under the impression that I could clear out comments from my own talk page that I deemed messy. :/ If that's not so, I'm sorry. Lulz 21:55, 18 December 2008 (EST)
that's if you save them as an archive. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 00:57, 19 December 2008 (UTC)


Listen, dude. I'm tired of arguing with you about Garchomp. TBH, tiers are just a matter of opinion. I've tried out a Garchomp myself and it wasn't that good, and ever since, I have not believed in Garchomp's true strengths. I've accepted that people have their own opinions about tiers. You believe in Garchomp being Uber, and I respect that. So can we please stop this arguing? Chocolate (Merry Christmas!) 01:20 12/19/2008
