Please talk

Hey, please say whatever you want here!! give me advice too

You said you want advice...

Please accent the 'e' in Pokémon (Alt+0233 or look in the character palette below), read the Manual of style top to bottom, sign off with '~~~~', etc...

There's some things to help you out in editing Bulbapedia. C: Tina δ 21:21, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Link templates and shortlinks

Please use the link templates and shortlinks when linking to Pokémon or other articles. For example, use {{p|Sunflora}} instead of [[Sunflora]]. Otherwise, you may accidentally link to a disambiguation page.

Additionally, when linking to episodes, please use the episode number as opposed to the title. To add the title, use the sort key. For example, if you wanted to link to Grin to Win, you would type [[EP135|Grin to Win]]. Thank you. --PAK Man Talk 22:25, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Not just that, italicize the title with two apostrophes on either side. TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 01:56, 4 December 2007 (UTC)


Please categorize any new page you create. --Shiningpikablu252 00:43, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{m|Psychic}} instead of just [[Psychic]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the shortlinks. --Shiningpikablu252 01:17, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Again. Use {{m}} when linking to things like AncientPower. --((Marton imos)) 03:49, 4 October 2008 (UTC)


You say you wish to learn the ways on the Fanciness, Grasshopper?

Seriously, though, what do you want to know? --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 21:35, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm not a grasshopper, im a cricket lol. well I just kinda want to know like how to add colors to your signature and how to make those cool userbox things... i dont know how to do much but ive read the help stuff and it has helped but not with everything. --Hey1031 21:38, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

For signature information, I'll just redirect you to the signature policy. In addition to instructions, it has rules and regulations for making a sig, so be sure to read it carefully.
Userboxes are easy. Put these tags on top of your page:
<div class="userbox"></div>
Then, write all the templates you want between the tags. For example:
<div class="userbox">
{{User Male}}
{{User Age|19}}
{{User Favorite|151|Mew}}
I put those three tags as an example, but you can use as many and any tags you want. You can find them all by browsing the User tags category.
Also, let me warn you: Don't edit your userpage too much. Try to keep yourself under three edits a day. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 21:45, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks that helps alot!!


ok, everytime I add to an existing discussion on a talk page, it either gets put on the same line as the original post, even if I put it on the next line, and when I put it one space over on that line, it gets it so theres gray and dotted lines around it. It never did it before but it has the last few days and its getting annoying.

Its probably something I'm doing wrong, so go ahead, laugh at my stupidity! --Hey1031 23:34, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

All you have to do when posting on talk pages (when you're replying) is use a colon ":". Other than that, I don't think there could be any other problem...--Blazevoir 23:38, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Negative Recruitment Rates

Those negative recruitment rates are not errors. It's due to the fact that certain factors can increase a chance for a successful recruitment. Quite an assortment of Pokémon, many of them middle evolutions, were given negative recruitment rates so as to require those factors to recruit them successfully. Metang's recruitment rate is -19% (negative-19%), yet the edit you made made it look like its recruitment rate was 38% higher than it actually was.

Coincidentally, -19% is the highest recruitment rate available at the Makuhita Dojo, and that applies only to the Nuzleaf in the Team Shifty maze and the Graveler in the Team Rumblerock maze. The ones on the other boss floors on the team mazes other than the Team Hydro maze have -30% rates; the Team Hydro bosses have -33.9% rates. --Shiningpikablu252 19:57, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I really dont get that, isnt anything below 1% just zero? why would it have to be -19% or something? I kind of get it a little bit, like if the percents were to change with different factors... --Hey1031 20:02, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

The factors are the lead Pokémon's level and the Friend Bow. When the level is highest and a Friend Bow is used, these factors can add 34% to the recruitment rate (24% from the levels, 10% from the Friend Bow). For example, a level 100 Pokémon in the lead with no Friend Bow would have a 5% chance of successfully recruiting that Metang (-19 + 24 = 5); this shoots up to 15% with a Friend Bow assuming the same level 100 (-19 + 34 = 15).
The game actually takes advantage of the usage of negative recruitment rates by making Kecleon an absolute ***** to recruit. Kecleon's recruitment rate is the lowest possible to allow successful recruitment, -33.9%. Anything lower and it's outright unrecruitable. To successfully recruit a Kecleon, you'll need to have all factors that raise recruitment in place (level 91 or higher plus the Friend Bow to add the whole 34%). Even then, the final recruitment rate for Kecleon is just 0.1% (-33.9 + 34 = 0.1)--basically a one in a thousand shot. --Shiningpikablu252 20:10, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I get it now, Thanks! --Hey1031 20:13, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Keep up the good work

You're using the template I made, right? Either way, just help me out through the rest of the original series, and we'll meet up at AG. TTEchidna 23:46, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I'll do the rest if you want. ht14 00:51, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for picking it back up! There's just so many templates needing fixup (like Ash and TRM)... ht14 22:57, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, this is a great site for Pokémon knowledge.

That's why I'm on this site as often as I am on YouTube. TheBlazikenMaster 23:16, 15 October 2008 (UTC)


It is not an error. It's just a different form, as correct as "spelled" and preferred by me. Please don't be a linguistic ignorant. --Maxim 11:12, 10 November 2008 (UTC)


It's part of the TCG template that we did a week or two ago. Some cards still haven't been updated, so they appear glitchy.--RexRacer 23:20, 1 April 2009 (UTC)


Hi, um I've been looking everywhere and can't really find how to use/get those userbox things on your user page. Knowing me, its right under my nose, but could someone explain to me how to add them or give a link to a page with them?

Thanks so much! --Hey1031 01:33, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Userboxes, like all other templates can be put in by linking with "curly brackets" (these:{}) a list of them can be found here: Category:User tags) If you have any more questions, feel free to check out my talkpage (clicke the "E" in my sig).--MisterE13 01:35, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks!! That was just the page I was looking for. =) --Hey1031 01:38, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
