Welcome to Bulbapedia, Starmie121!

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.
  • 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 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 capital 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 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. 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.
  • 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. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Starmie121/(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! --MoldyOrange 16:51, 2 June 2008 (UTC)


The stuff you're adding to the pages is informative and relatively well-written, which is good. However, you need to work on formatting. Pay attention to the edits that have been done to your additions, and review the manual of style, to see what you should be doing differently. Thank you. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 00:40, 16 June 2008 (UTC)


Don't put it in articles. That thing you said that Rudy's Starmie is a symbol for showing Rudy's love to Misty isn't valid. We don't even know if she told Rudy she had a Starmie. And that other stuff was not important. Ash's Gligar was the first Gligar to use X-Scissor but we don't mention that. --ケンジガール 03:54, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Gym Leader's Pokemon

you honestly don't need to keep adding all of the Gym leader's pokemon, we just need the notable ones.Boywonder01 12:42, 18 June 2008 (UTC)


It's is a contraction of it is. Its is the possessive form of it. Be sure you use the right one in the right situation. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 01:08, 14 September 2008 (UTC)


Slow down on editing the User: namespace. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --((Marton imos)) 11:19, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Some advice

Just thought I'd give you some advice. First up, when you are linking to abilities, it is no different then when you link to a Pokémon, move or type. Simply use the {{a}} template. Secondly, please be sure that you are using proper grammar. The word "It's" means "It is." For instance, in your edit to Misty's Starmie, you stated "When fatigued it's jewel like core would flicker accompanied by a soft 'ding' sound." What you really stated was "When fatigued it is jewel like core would flicker accompanied by a soft 'ding" sound." If you are unsure of what to put, simply replace "It's" with "It is." Also, you really don't have to go into every single detail about the Pokémon when you post on their page. --PAK Man Talk 18:36, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
