Welcome to Bulbapedia, Strong Intelligent!

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:Strong Intelligent/(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! --Misty-May-Dawn rulz 11:58, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. Do colons work here? Anywho, I'ma try follow your info. I also believe that the rules here are similar to other places (No swearing, good grammar...) Strong Intelligent


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. --Misty-May-Dawn rulz 12:48, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Buuuuut, I made a Userpage, 5 mins later, a small edit and then a subpage. I may have only been here 3 hours, but I know when to edit. Strong Intelligent
3 userspace edits and no mainspace edits in 3 hours is quite a lot. I would not have intervenned if you had made any true contributions. If you know how to and when to edit, use your knowledge to edit in the mainspace.--Misty-May-Dawn rulz 04:20, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Well, he's technically right, but 4 or more edits without anything else is where we go for warning bells, man. TTEchidna 06:06, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
AND, I made an edit on the Arceus talk page, made my edit on THIS page, went out for three hours came back, looked around and checked the HRFwiki. You guys are STRICT! BTW, is there anyone with asperges syndrome here? Strong Intelligent
The strictness is a side-effect of the seemingly endless stream of userspace edits that was constant before the space was locked down in March. Also an example of why the fan-wiki idea that keeps cropping up is such a good one.
On the subject of which: I've started a thread on the forums to discuss it. Ideas tend to get more attention there than on talk pages here, so hopefully we'll be able to attract people interested in creating and maintaining such a wiki. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 09:14, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Am I going to get credit for the idea? Strong Intelligent
