No speculation

Please do not post speculation about what might happen to Ash's team in the future. We do not know if Ash will capture a Riolu, so it does not belong on the article. Thank you. --PAK Man Talk 00:43, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Link templates

Please use the link templates when linking to articles about Pokémon, types, moves, abilities, and many other pages. For example, use {{p|Spoink}} instead of [[Spoink]].

Also, it's not a good idea to undo an administrator's edits. Thank you. --PAK Man Talk 06:00, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Undoing link templates

That thing you keep undoing, they're called link templates. They directly link to the Pokémon that you're referring too. The double brackets usually link to a Pokémon disambiguation. Please stop doing it, and use the link templates. --ケンジガール 06:06, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Perhaps this will make more sense

We here at Bulbapedia have link templates for consistency purposes. If you'll notice, all articles about Pokémon are at the name Pokémon Name (Pokémon). Likewise, all the moves are at Move Name (move), and so on. The way you are linking to articles has the potential to link to one of our disambiguation pages. Let's take Spoink for example. When you edited the article about Ash Ketchum, you had typed [[Spoink]]. But if you click where Spoink leads to, you will notice that it is at a disambiguation page. On the other hand, if you had typed {{p|Spoink}}, it would have lead to Spoink, which is the Pokémon page.

I understand that you are a new member of Bulbapedia, and the administrative staff does not tell you these rules to yell at or criticize you. We want you to understand the rules of how we run, and when you disregard what we are telling you, it tells us that you don't want to listen. This is why your edits keep getting undone.

If you would like more information about Bulbapedia, please read over the manual of style and our list of link templates. And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me or one of the other administrators. Thank you. --PAK Man Talk 06:22, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Please don't erase talk page comments for no reason. Trust me, you do NOT want to end up like Big Johnno, who got into an edit war with a sysop over comments the former had erased and was trying to keep erased. That user ended up blocked and subsequently had every erased comment restored. --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 06:46, 9 December 2008 (UTC)


There isn't really a "standard" for user pages. It's just whatever looks nice to you. I personally think it looks good the way it is.

By the way, I just wanted to inform you that we have a three edit per day maximum on user pages, and you have currently reached that limit. If you would like to edit your page again, you'll have to wait until tomorrow. In the future, you'll want to use the Show Preview button, which is located at the bottom of the edit screen. That way, you can view your page before it is complete, and won't have to make consecutive edits. --PAK Man Talk 16:43, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Episode Titles

Please don't go putting down episode titles not confirmed by official sources just because lists them. Wait until Pokéani confirms it, as Pokéani only puts down episode titles once the offical sources put it out. --Shiningpikablu252 18:47, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

But Pokeani DID put it up. It's scheduled to air on January 29th 2009. --ケンジガール 18:58, 18 December 2008 (UTC)


Sorry... I don't know what are you talking about... --18:56, 21 February 2009 (UTC) - unsigned comment from Nick. (talkcontribs)

Talk pages

They are not for asking questions on how to beat your game. They are for discussion on article content. Discussing how to beat games is on the forums. Go there. --ケンジガール 05:09, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Or you could go to Serebii. Or Gamefaqs. Don't use talk pages for game help. And it's not our fault you can't go to the forums. -Sketch 18:34, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
