Welcome to Bulbapedia, FolksCallMeHilbert!

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!

Link templates

FYI, some things like Pokemon do not have pages directly at their name, like "Rockruff", their pages are at "Rockruff (Pokemon)". So if you just link Rockruff, that's a redirect; it's better to link directly to the correct title, which you can do with {{p|Rockruff}}. You may even have seen some of these being used when you've edited. There's a few other such simple templates for other things like moves and Abilities, try to familiarize yourself with the most basic ones like that if you can. Thanks!

Thank you for pointing that out to me! I admit that my last group of edits felt a bit rushed, and I did not think to include that. I will try to be more meticulous with future edits. FolksCallMeHilbert (talk) 23:03, 16 August 2017 (UTC)


Hey there! Since this is a needed article, I'm going to move it to the mainspace. It looks so good so far! I think having it there will help other people see it to add some of the content that you're missing. MaverickNate 01:36, 6 February 2023 (UTC)

In-battle quotes

This may be a preference question, but I've always thought the in-battle quotes should be separated instead of piled under an "in-battle" asterisk. That's how it's previously been. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:06, 2 October 2023 (UTC)

My main reason for implementing these changes is to hopefully make it easier for readers to follow. The way I see it, the bullet points are meant to convey dialogue progression in a chronological sort of way. The battles themselves occur between certain dialogue, but the dialogue contained within that battle may be presented in random order, if they are even activated at all. So, in a loose sense, it's almost treating them like dialogue options (which are formatted with bold text and indentation). I believe it also helps alleviate quote pages from having an excess of bullet points under certain location sections, especially for notable Trainers in SwSh and SV which have a lot more in-battle quotes than Trainers in previous generations. Hop's quote page already has his in-battle quotes formatted under single asterisks; since he has so much dialogue already, the formatting highlights his battle quotes at a glance.

I had been planning to edit Hop's battle quotes to be the other way, but never got around to doing it. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:54, 4 October 2023 (UTC)


I saw that you had added the {{incomplete}} tag to Vessa's page. You also forgot to mention a reason. Is there anything specific that the page is missing? After your major update, it feels pretty complete to me. If there's anything specific you want added to the page, can you specify it in the reason on the incomplete tag, or remove it and the {{stub}} tag altogether? → PikaTepig999 20:14, 8 December 2023 (UTC)

Apologies for leaving out the reason. I went and adjusted the template to address what's still needed. FolksCallMeHilbert (talk) 03:19, 9 December 2023 (UTC)
