Welcome to Bulbapedia, Ruixiang95!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • Keep an eye on the Messages from the Editor on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either 130 or 0233 on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a capital B. The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon or other media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • Image uploading is done on Bulbagarden Archives, a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded. To activate your account at the Archives and Bulbanews, please login there using the same username and password you use here on Bulbapedia.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Ruixiang95/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! ----M-M-DRule! 09:43, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Pelipper}} instead of just [[Pelipper]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. --Shiningpikablu252 14:20, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Editing things

I wonder why sometimes i cant edit things. And what is 'tor exit node'?--Ruixiang95 13:38, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! --CuboneKing 01:30, 12 September 2009 (UTC)


I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Instead of editing the userspace, as a wiki, we encourage users to edit the mainspace. So, if you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit the userspace more. Thanks! ---- MAGNEDETH 04:37, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Image talk

See the archives to ask questions about images. ht14 03:39, 3 October 2009 (UTC)


Unfortunately, these are blocked per Bulbapedia's userspace policy. I am sorry, but I am going to have to delete them. You might be interested in creating an account on the Bulbagarden forums (link in sidebar) where you submit fanfic and have likeminded users help you improve your writing. —darklordtrom 09:01, 26 December 2009 (UTC)


I noticed that CtrlAltDestroy has the same IP as you. Relative? TTEchidna 09:48, 30 June 2010 (UTC)


Not sure if you are aware of this, but OneManga has closed its manga-hosting section, so you may want to remove the link you have on your userpage. --PhantomJunkie 21:08, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Why is composer/arranger info unnecessary?

I think it's very important to differentiate who wrote each track. One of the goals of Project Music is to be comprehensive, is it not? At least if you don't want such in depth detail in an article, allow me to post a link to each respective album on VGMdb, which has all that information and more. I can assure you that I'm not the only one who cares enough about composer/arranger breakdown to have it appear on such a comprehensive Pokémon site such as this. Thanks for reading this! Maxo 17:02, 23 October 2010 (UTC)t

I don't think it belongs on the article but I could be wrong. Please bring it up with Project Music's leader, Umeko. For now we'll leave it out until this issue gets resolved. Jellotalk 17:25, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Card pages

Your work on making card pages is excellent! Keep up the good work! All I ask is that you put in the "transdex" option with the English Black 2 and White 2 Pokédex entries. MaverickNate 20:56, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Now that we are working on the cards at the same time, I ask that you stick to the Spiral Force side. I just got edit conflicted with Zweilous, which just wasted about 10 minutes for me, lol. I'm going through Thunder Knuckle from top to bottom, and I'd just appreciate it. MaverickNate 06:11, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

A note about appropriate card pages to English release

I noticed you helping out with Plasma Storm a little bit. Something that I am compelled to tell you, however, is that you cannot link to an image that does not exist. I noticed you link to what the victory Piece image will be named, instead of where the file actually is. This can hinder display of the image, and it generally causes the page to be stuck in the broken file category even though the file exists. Preferably, you need to move the image before you finish the edit to the card page. If you must leave the image where it is, due to inexperience on the Archives, for example, please leave the image field in the card infobox unchanged. MaverickNate 07:15, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

I doubt I'll be able to edit the pages now, since if I edit the articles without editing the image, you have to probably edit the articles with the image again. As I think by doing that, it'll be troublesome for you, and even add another history to the pages. --Ruixiang95 (talk) 09:14, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day and make sure you contribute to our mainspace more than your userspace. This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our server. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! ----Pokemaster97 21:07, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Improvement notes

Hello! I noticed you finish out the Legendary Treasures cards. First off, thank you! After the first 115, I was pretty dead tired of doing it anymore. I just wanted to send you a few notes of improvement for next time, if you are interested in appropriating cards for their English release.

  • 1)Make sure to remove the {{TCG Unreleased}} template from the top of card pages. Those are only for Japanese only cards, and it should be removed upon the English release.
  • 2)The set category always needs to be added. This one was Category:Legendary Treasures cards. It typically gets added directly above whatever the Japanese equivalent category is.
  • 3)Make sure to update the appropriate Category:Cards by Pokémon pages that need to be updated whenever you do a bunch. I noticed a few EX Battle Boost cards that weren't ever added to those pages, and that can be prevented as long as we keep on adding them whenever we make changes to any card page.

There were a few instances where you called the Japanese equivalent of the Radiant Collection cards "EX Battle Boost", or forgot to change a "Shiny Collection" here or there, but otherwise everything else was spot on. Images can only currently be moved by staff, so I wasn't expecting you to grab that part. Good job overall! I really appreciated the help. MaverickNate 03:19, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Cards by Pokémon

As we are in the middle of repairing the Japanese Rarity scheme, I must ask you to refrain from adding the newest set of Pokémon cards to their "<name> (TCG)" pages. MaverickNate 16:38, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

This needs to be changed on Pokémon debuting in the XY expansion (AKA, only any Pokémon listed as debuting in the Collection X or Collection Y). MaverickNate 09:43, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Phantom Gate

I just wanted to come here and say good job on the Phantom Gate card articles you created! Your help was really appreciated and It's refreshing to see that kind of initiative taken. So, thank you! And I hope you keep it up! MaverickNate 03:45, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Cardtext update

Would you mind holding off changing cards to use the Cardtext templates? There are a few other things Nate and I are doing while changing them, so we'd like to make sure they're all being done at once, to avoid more work in the future. We also often run into cards that need us to discuss something or tweak the format slightly. glikglak 21:14, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Alright, here's a checklist of things that need to be done while updating:
  • Check everything against the card to make sure it's actually correct.
  • Remove excess spaces from lines.
  • Make sure opening lines are formatted as "[Pokémon] is a [type] [evolution stage] Pokémon card".
  • For attacks that are moves/Abilities/items, match the jtrans.
  • Check for alternate Holo and other promo versions of the card for the release section. Remember to check the Additional cards tables of expansion pages as well as the Miscellaneous/Unnumbered promos page.
  • Things that differentiate a print from another (stamps, logos, etc) should go in the release section as opposed to trivia.
  • Remove speculative lines from origin sections ("[attack] is very similar to [move]" and such).
  • Put categories in correct order. The expansions go first, then the illustrators, then the following applicable categories in this order: Holographic, Jumbo, Secret, and Full Art. Remember to add Holographic if there are alternate Holo versions.
If you run into anything that you're unsure of, ask Nate or I. I'd like you to start where I've left off, on Secret Wonders Wormadam. glikglak 01:56, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
LV.X need the third bullet point. glikglak 19:10, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
Make sure to change any instance of "non-holographic" to "Non Holofoil" MaverickNate 17:31, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
Transdex technically always belongs below jdex in the card Pokédex template, and only gets moved above jdex when the card is translated and the entry in the template is switched over to regular dex. MaverickNate 08:47, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Ah, I see. I will take note of it. Because from previous articles in previous expansions, I always sees that the transdex is above the jdex. — Ruixiang95 20:15, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
I think that just happens as a preparation for the card's eventual move into an English card. Otherwise, the idea behind it is to present the original text first and then present a translation. But since it has no effect of the visual output of the page, it shouldn't ever be edited just to change that around. MaverickNate 21:17, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Your new pages still contain the outdated pre-Gen III Heights and Weights when you copy the page from the Base Set equivalent. I need you to use the Pokédex stats from a more recent card for each Pokémon. MaverickNate 21:31, 19 September 2016 (UTC)


Since we're within minutes of moving the images, I am going to ask you to wait to edit any more pages until those are moved. All the pages should have everything updated at the same time and not in pieces. Thank you. MaverickNate 22:01, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

The images are uploaded and moved. It's good to go ahead again. If you do, however, I would like it if you either started at 1 and worked forward or started at 113 and worked backwards. It's much harder slash impossible to have more than one person working if someone is just doing cards in a random order. MaverickNate 22:36, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
I realized some of the holographic cards are not moved yet. How do I proceed with these? I'm also about to hit the "Save" button on the Evolutions set page. What's the card for 110/108? And should the Exeggutor and Here Comes Team Rocket! etc. be considered Rare Secret or Uncommon?? — Ruixiang95 23:23, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
All the images that will currently be moved are currently moved. The rest will be another day. This should include any questions you may still have about mystery cards. The five secret cards should be listed as Rare Secret. MaverickNate 23:38, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Cards by Pokémon SM1

There's also the Sun & Moon Starter Set that has reprints of things from Collection Sun & Moon, like Pinsir. Don't forget those when adding the SM1 stuff. Additionally, when you make it to Gen 7 Pokémon, the prev/next template is never supposed to link to Pokémon that do not have a card released yet. For example, Pyukumuku would link to Palossand and Togedemaru, because Pokémon 772-776 do not have any card at all yet. MaverickNate 10:11, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Alright. And the Sun & Moon Starter Set be placed first or the Collection Sun/Moon? Can each individual cards be created yet, because you stopped at Butterfree, so I thought maybe you have something to make sure of. and the "TCGUnreleased" template doesn't have to place already right? — Ruixiang95 10:15, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
The Japanese official site uploaded clean images for each of the cards, so I've been uploading them since I've stopped at Butterfree. That's the only reason, they can be created as long as the translations are copied from Bulbanews, in order to keep the whole site consistent. The Sun & Moon Starter Set would be placed second. Main expansion would always be first (edit:with releases that are all on the same day). TCGUnreleased template should be placed because the cards aren't released in English yet until the prereleases in January. We just have the luxury of having the full set list from the leak on, and are able to create the pages there instead of having to move them later. MaverickNate 10:20, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
There's also the first line that needs to be changed on Gen 7 Pokémon. Dartrix now debuted in the Sun & Moon expansion, not the Sun & Moon Starter Set. MaverickNate 10:38, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
There isn't any Decidueye card (non-GX) around right? And would the article would still be debuted in the Starter Set, yeah? And ha. I was just wondering honestly if I'm actually causing to be troublesome or I'm actually helping. Cause I see that every set/expansion, I would always be doing something wrong. Haha. Just wondering. — Ruixiang95 10:42, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
For Decidueye and the other starters, there is a non-GX print included in the English Sun & Moon expansion with no Japanese equivalent announced currently. Since those three cards, and the GX, are all included in the English expansion, the debut would be Sun & Moon, since we always prioritize the English release.
And, no, you aren't troublesome. For the vast majority of the cards, you do a wonderful job. I should tell you that more often! I just happen to really only message you about the exceptions to the normal rules, because those are usually where something weird or different has to be done for whatever reason. I'd rather message you once about the Sun & Moon Starter Set than have to add in the 59 cards to the pages on my own. The start of a Generation is always one of the more difficult groups of sets. I may be a bit direct in my messages, but I'm only ever trying to help you improve, so that it will be easier for you in both the near and far futures. It's always way too much work for one person to do, so I appreciate the help every set you come in to help. So please keep it up! =] MaverickNate 11:02, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
One more thing! Each Pokémon-GX has a Full Art version in both the English and Japanese sets, and a Hyper Rare version (only confirmed in the Japanese set as the second Secret rare). MaverickNate 11:28, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
Finally found something as to not clog up the revision history of this talk page. I have no problem with your use of language and style. I'm just worried that I'm taking more of your time. Anyway, Cosmoem was created as Cosmeom. You want to move the page or create the article with the right name, and delete the current one? — Ruixiang95 16:30, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
You aren't don't worry! And thank you for catching that error! MaverickNate 16:37, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Copying from Serebii

Hey. I noticed you added a list of Magikarp patterns to Pokémon: Magikarp Jump. I'm fairly certain you copied the data from Serebii because you duplicated a pretty crucial error that Serebii made. I'd like to ask whether any of the other things you added were also copied from Serebii? It's extremely important that we not steal from other sites for a lot of reasons, foremost among them: it damages our relationships with those websites; copying other people's work without crediting them is both immoral and illegal; and most of all, it runs the risk of producing duplicated errors like you apparently did when you likely copied the Magikarp pattern list. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 19:07, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Quotes Additions

I realize I hadn't done this yet, so I wanted to thank you for your help in filling out the quote pages for so many of the Sun and Moon entries. I've been trying to handle it in my off-time, and all of your hard work on the entries has really helped them come along! Thanks again for all the help on the quotes! dpRuddertail (talk) 19:39, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Question Regarding Edit

While you did catch a couple of typos and make some other fixes that make sense, I do have a question regarding your Pokémon ordering. When I first started doing these pages, my understanding was that the ordering was featured Pokémon, than by type order (with colorless last), then within each type alphabetical by the final evolution with its earlier forms below it. This presumes the order with Electrode first, then Emolga, then Magnezone and the Thundurus entries. Additionally, this would place Kangaskhan last, after White Kyurem, in the other deck, though you placed it in between the Fire types with Reshiram after it. Thus, I would like to know what method you are using for your list ordering? Or is there a Web site list whose order you are following for this? CycloneGU (talk) 19:40, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

For the ordering of the Pokémon, I was actually following what was on the back of the box and from here, and the Item/Supporter from the back of the box alone. I personally have not edit these "Battle Arena Decks" before, but usually I would do like this for other decks. However, looking at the other articles now, the back of the product usually organized them by your ordering. So if that is what's trending with these deck articles, feel free to revert back to your ordering. — Ruixiang95 07:24, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
The Best Practice for writing out decklists is follow the packaging order.MaverickNate 02:48, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
OK, that's a good point, and I didn't consider that for some reason. Thanks for enlightening me there. CycloneGU (talk) 19:19, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
