Welcome to Bulbapedia, Snap!

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.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can 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 captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). 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 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. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • 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.
  • 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!--Theryguy512 01:33, 17 February 2008 (UTC)


Please use templates for articles on Pokémon.


As you can see, there is a big difference between Pikachu and PikachuPokeManiac102 01:58, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Please do not insult the new users Ivan, it brings unpopularity to the website.PokeManiac102 02:01, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, it was a simple oversight. I've corrected it. Snap
Um, actually, I corrected it.PokeManiac102 02:09, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
One of them at least.PokeManiac102 02:10, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Huh. That's odd; when i went back to the page after seeing your message, it was still the same. maybe we were both editng at the same time? I suppose it's irrelevant.
