Welcome to Bulbapedia, Macpika!

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 pages

Talk pages are for suggesting improvements for articles, not for casual talk or speculation. It you want to have a casual conversation, you can go to the formus for that. Thank you.--ForceFire 05:00, 9 March 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! --Abcboy (talk) 03:01, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

I notice you are editing the Sobble page a lot, rather than making multiple edits, you should use the Preview button to make sure it looks the way it should before hitting the Save Changes button. Thank you.~ Frozen Fennec 05:10, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
If you continue doing that, you might lose your ability to save pages without clicking "Show preview". See Special:ListGroupRights and scroll to "forcepreview" for more information. --TheICTLiker4 07:39, 25 January 2020 (UTC)


Your signature should be placed at the end of your comment, not at the beginning. Thank you.--ForceFire 04:37, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Force Fire. Could you check out Sobble's discussion page (where it says "Origin for Trivia Section")? I have a suggestion to add to that page, the reasons and the links. Macpika (talk) 03:59, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Take suggestions to the respective article's talk page, not here. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:28, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

Talk page comments, again

As I mentioned before, talk pages are for suggesting improvements or ideas for an article, not for small talk. If you want to have a casual conversation, you can go to the forums. If you recreate and bring up the same question on Rillaboom's talk page for the third time, you may receive a short block.--ForceFire 05:15, 23 March 2020 (UTC)


Just to clarify, I am in no position to give you permission for anything, what I said in Rillaboom's talk page should be taken merely as a suggestion. However, this is a community enciclodedia, and we are encouraged to contribute to it. There is usually no need to ask for permission to make small changes like that one.

Also, you may want to use the preview button to make sure the page looks the way you want before you save it, so you won't need to make several edits in a row to the same page. Suic (talk) 18:42, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Dub petition

Petitions of that nature do not belong on those pages, as they have nothing to do with the subject of the article. You've been blocked for 3 days from editing the TAJ and 4Kids articles, and I've removed your posts to the talk pages about the petition, because that also has nothing to do with the pages themselves. I hope you understand. Kai * the Arc Toraph 23:55, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

Once again, the petitions do not belong in the article you are trying to add them in. As you have completely ignored Arc's last message, you have been blocked from editting pages regarding SOVA for 1 month. If you return to continue adding the petition, you will be block for longer.--ForceFire 06:37, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

Preview button and editing your own comments.

Please use the preview button before saving changes in order to avoid the need to edit your own comments. Please do not edit your own comments as it gives off the wrong timestamp and disrupts discussion by not allowing people to save their response because of conflicting intermediate edits.
