Welcome to Bulbapedia, PeridotEX!

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!

Preview button

Please use the preview button before saving edits. You'll be able to catch your typos the first time and not have to keep fixing them. Also, links don't need spaces between the words and brackets/vertical pipes. glikglak 22:34, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Edit Warring

Please do not revert or add back information that was removed, it constitutes as edit warring and is a blockable offense. If you have a problem with an edit, take it up to the talk page of the disputed article or the user that reverted you. Thank you. --ForceFire 02:42, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Link templates

Please use link templates when linking to articles for things such as moves, Pokémon, etc. to avoid linking to redirects or disambiguation pages. For example, {{m|Flame Wheel}} instead of [[Flame Wheel]]. More information on link templates can be found here and a list of them can be found here. Thanks!--Cold (talk) 17:55, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Minimizing edits

I've been looking at the edits you've been making and I want you to challenge yourself to use the preview button before you save any edit and make your additions in as few saves as possible. It's never a good thing to make four contributions to the same page within 10 minutes (with spelling mistakes still within your final edit to that page). I enjoy your interest in the Sun & Moon TCG, I just need you to be more careful and more precise with your contributions. If you have any questions or are unsure about anything, take a look at the Welcome message at the top of your page, and feel free to come talk to me if you can't quite find it there. Thanks for your help, and I look forward to your future response and contributions! MaverickNate 17:50, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Slow down and be careful

I urge you to please, slow down and be careful. You just created an article for a Slowbro card that lists its name as Whiscash in the lead paragraph and its Japanese name as Fushigidane (the Japanese name of Bulbasaur) in the infobox. Many of your previous edits have also shown a similar lack of care. Please, try to remember to get it right the first time. Being sloppy does nothing but force others to clean up after you.

Some things

  • Don't remove the unreleased template off of a card without adding the English information first. Saying it's available in English but not giving any details about it isn't helpful and can cause confusion. (And the Trainer Kit isn't out yet, so the template isn't actually wrong)
  • Try to keep Release information sections chronological. With the infobox prioritizing English, the release order of Japanese prints can get muddled. The release sections allow us to keep things in order. Also, check to make sure what you're adding doesn't disrupt what was there before; the lines you added to Karen is stuck right in front of a sentence specifically about the first Japanese print.
  • If you don't know what a piece of a template or code does, ask someone instead of editing blindly. The code in the intro of [Pokémon] (TCG) pages has a -1 because that page itself is in the category; the number of pages in the category is the number of cards +1. And "standard=Yes" is in some cardlist entries to show that the card is in the current rotation. A card that hasn't been released obviously isn't.
