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. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, 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!

Talk pages discussions

Don't reply to discussions that are over 6 months old as the discussion may have either been resolved or the user who asked is no longer around, making the response pointless. While the discussion for Nate is technically open, it's a discussions from 2012, so I think it's best to just make a new section.--ForceFire 13:54, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the information, I thought it wouldn't be needed to have two sections about the same discussion. Danny199 (talk) 14:03, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
No harm in having two discussions of the same thing if they're years apart from each other. But just to answer the questions you had on both talk pages, Nate's article should have his Pokémon from the trailer in the anime section like Rosa. AS for Red, that sprite is fan made, we don't use fan made images since they're not official.--ForceFire 14:21, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
I'm trying to edit it now, can you explain how to do the images? I can't figure out how to add an image of the Pokémon to the infobox Danny199 (talk) 14:42, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
To add an image to a page, you need to create an account on the archives, and then upload your image using a standardized filename (try looking at the names for images on similar pages to figure out what yours should be called). To display the image on a page, you can use [[File:[filename].[extension]]] to show the picture. However, if the page uses an infobox, it usually just requires the filename on its own as a parameter (again, try looking at similar pages to figure out what you should do). Hope this helps!

Talk page comments

Once a talk page comment is posted, please do not edit it, even if it has not been responded to. This is against Bulbapedia policy, and can dramatically change a conversation flow if a comment is changed, especially if it has replies. If you have something new to say and the comments aren't that old, Add what you have to say in a new comment at the end of the current thread in that specific section.

What I posted is practicly the same subject, involving the same persons. It is something that has happened before, and has now happened again, and I asked for an explanation, shouldn't it be posted at the same place?Danny199 (talk) 17:01, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Continuing the discussion was fine, it's that you removed an old comment to add the new one that wasn't. glikglak 17:07, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Also, when replying to talk page comments, please make sure to post your response at the bottom of the section you are replying to, no the middle, so that the chronological flow of the discussion does not get ruined. ChE clarinetist (talk) 12:22, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
It isn't this way. The last thing I wrote was about something else, that was the subject at the beginning of the discussion. What I now posted fit perfectly. Danny199 (talk) 16:03, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Edit warring

Please do not edit war. If you disagree with an edit, discuss it with the user that reverted you or take it up to the talk of the related artcile, don't just continually revert the edit. As for the trivia, it's simply not notable. So what if Swampert has the same types as Groudon and Kyogre? The same can be said about any other Ground or Water type Pokémon (regardless if they just have one and not the other). There are trivia that are notable, and yours wasn't.--ForceFire 13:56, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

The thing was that Swampert is an Hoenn starter and both Groudon and Kyogre are Hoenn box art legendaries. Look into it, Swampert is the only starter to share both its types with the two box art legendaries. Danny199 (talk) 16:30, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes... and? It's nothing special.--ForceFire 16:41, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

By that logic most trivia isn't special. Might as well get rid of it. Danny199 (talk) 16:49, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
