Welcome to Bulbapedia, Cal05000!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • Keep an eye on the Messages from the Editor on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon or other media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • Image uploading is done on Bulbagarden Archives, a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Cal05000/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem, can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here!--Shiningpikablu252 18:05, 14 May 2008 (UTC)


Please note the spelling of Pokémon, with a capital P and an é. Same goes for subsequent words such as Poké Ball, Pokérap, etc. --electAbuzzzz (TALK) 09:05, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Removing accurate information

Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm pretty sure that Geo Pebbles can only be found in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2. Am I right? Unless information is blatantly wrong, badly written, or otherwise unacceptable, please don't remove it. However, please do enlighten me if I'm incorrect about the Geo Pebble. --ニョロトノ666 20:17, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Well, I've browsed around a bit, and it turns out you're correct. My bad. --ニョロトノ666 20:30, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Actually, I do recall Geo Pebbles appearing in the first Mystery Dungeon. They're weaker than and less abundant than Gravelerocks.
Might as well take a list from mynock's Wonder Mail Generator. Some items that one might have suspected as being PMD2-exclusive appear in this list of items from PMD1. Here's a list of the items from Mystery Dungeon 1, the spellings and wordings are taken as they are from the generator and I cannot guarantee that they are the actual item names. I know that the item listed as "Wide Slash" in the list is not named that in the game, and I'm also suspcious about an item called "Music Box" around where the Orgel should be..

I hope this list is helpful. --Shiningpikablu252 02:39, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
