Welcome to Bulbapedia, WaterTypo!

By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

You

Hey, I was looking at your contributions and I noticed you use the word "you" a lot. It is generally discouraged to use the word "you" on a page. Try a less direct approach, like possibly use "the player" as a substitute for "you". :) Thanks! Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 23:09, 23 December 2010 (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 Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! -- Jellotalk 20:50, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

User Page

I made so many edits and three new pages, why wont the this computer let me do anything with my user page!!?? I didn't do anything wrong, did I? How many edits and new pages am I supposed to make? ( That last question was not rechorical.) - unsigned comment from WaterTypo (talkcontribs)

When you make enough edits (don't ask how many, that's a secret) and have been here a certain time, the software will automatically auto confirm you and you will be allowed to edit your user page. Don't forget that this is an encyclopedia and not a social networking site, your main focus should be about editing this wiki. Jellotalk 21:56, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
Read this page. Also this one. Pokémon has a capital P and an accent over the E. You can get the first four letters from the character palette below the editing pane (see, that nice green thing there?). —darklordtrom 21:58, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

I didn't know. How do you archive your talk page? WaterTypo 20:12, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Click the move tab at the top and move it to somewhere like User talk:WaterTypo/Archive 1, Then from the "move completed" screen click the link to "User talk:WaterTypo" and remove the #REDIRECT: so that your existing page has a link to your archive. Werdnae (talk) 20:39, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Please

Don't create useless and poorly created pages like "Acorn Pokemon". Species names apply to more than one Pokémon so this doesn't really work. Jellotalk 22:12, 24 December 2010 (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! --Ataro 06:51, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Taking care of Pokemon

I'm wonder ing why pokemon don't need to eat. They eat poke block, poffins, and berries, but if you don't give them any of them, they don't starve! They don't even lose happiness!!! When it comes to berries, they don't even get full? I know pokemon like pikachu or ponyta don't throw up, but what about the others? If you only feed a pokemon poffins, they get full, right? You can wait months but they still will be full!? If there happens to be a 6th generation, I hope they'll improve the game by having to feed your pokemon once, twice, or three times a day! And Snorlax way more. There should be an item in the items pocket, medicine pocket, or key items pocket (like poffin cases and apricorn boxes) called pokemon food, exactly like in the anime. Has anyone noticed you never see a pokemon in the anime like kuitaran eating a live aianto? Its just as violent as the Animal Planet Channel.WaterTypo 20:30, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Creepy

I find Kuitaran not scary, but creepy. Even more creepy than when I found out about croagunk and toxicroak. I wish someone on bulbagarden would do something with the website to make the word pokemon and everything that has to do with like the species and names and japanese words or phrases not be counted as spelled wrong. I dont know how to do that. Would that be ilegal? I've been making mistakes on bulbapedia like accidentally attempting to delete one of the paragraphs on my talk page. - unsigned comment from WaterTypo (talkcontribs)

Help

Where do you get those pokemon tags that most of you have on your user page?(WaterTypo 22:48, 16 January 2011 (UTC))
