Thank you for joining our community! By creating an account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. This is a brief introduction to Bulbapedia's rules and resources to help you get started:

  • All users are expected to follow the code of conduct and to be kind to one another.
  • If you have a question, check out our FAQ; the manual of style provides detailed editing guidance, and the wikicode page provides details about how to use wikicode.
    • You can always ask for help by contacting a staff member.
  • Please preview your edits before saving them; this helps you double-check your changes and reduces the need for repeated minor edits.
  • Use talk pages to discuss changes and resolve editing disputes.
  • Creating a userpage is allowed after you've added to the encyclopedia; for more details, see the userspace policy.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~) so people know who is commenting. This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links and information, check out the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Origins

Please do not use definite wording (is based off) unless you have a source to back up your claim, otherwise use "may be based off" or "appears to be based off", regardless of how obvious an origin is. Thank you.--ForceFire 14:45, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Also, please do not use copyrighted characters as a possible origin, unless it was explicitly stated to be based off that character. Thank you.--ForceFire 15:00, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Link templates

Hey there, please make sure to use link templates whenever necessary. Using the plain links will lead someone to a redirect rather than the actual page (i.e. type {{p|Pikachu}} rather than [[Pikachu]] or {{m|Tackle}} rather than [[Tackle]]). For a list of link templates, see List of link templates. Thank you.--ForceFire 09:42, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

Name origins

Please do not use {{tt}} for the actual name origin section explanations and leave them inside parentheses. The TT otherwise only belongs in the in other languages tables. Kai * the Arc Toraph 02:21, 29 September 2020 (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.
