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!

Data mining

Hi. FYI, information data-mined from the Demo is currently not allowed on Bulbapedia. I understand how it can be easy to miss, but our site notice at the top of the page even says this. There are many other places you're welcome to discuss that topic, including our forums if you wish, but for the time being, please do not edit any of that information into Bulbapedia. Only what you can know by directly playing the game. I hope you can understand. Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:09, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

While I don't understand the reason for this rule, yes, I missed it. Thanks for pointing it out, I will keep that in mind in the future. Mid-kid (talk) 20:18, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
The reason is that sometime in the past Nintendo (or someone like that) was very displeased when great amounts of unsactioned information about new Pokemon games was leaked. (I wasn't really around when that happened to remember it well, so I'm not sure when exactly, but that's why.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 20:25, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Oh, okay. Thanks for clarifying. Mid-kid (talk) 20:36, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
