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!

Possessives ending in s

I noticed you expressed concern about the way Bulbapedia formats possessives ending in the letter "s". Both Iris's and Iris' are grammatically correct; which is used is a matter of preference, although it is best to be consistent. The games use the former convention, so this is the convention that Bulbapedia uses. It is also convenient for templates like {{TP}} to have page titles formatted like Iris's rather than Iris'. Furthermore, the convention that omits the final "s" is also used for pluralized possessives, and using the convention that includes the final "s" allows distinction between the two cases. Regardless of your personal preference, please note that Bulbapedia always uses the method with the final "s". Thanks! --SnorlaxMonster 13:00, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
