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!

Usage of the word "native"

Hello. I noticed that you and the other chiefs of staff have ruled that the term "natives" should absolutely not be used on the "Biology" section of the Raichu article, and I was redirected to you by Abcboy for further discussion on the matter. It was an issue that PardescanSlowbro raised out of concerns that the word is inherently offensive and incidentally racist to people of indigenous descent, a viewpoint that I and Force Fire highly disagreed with because the word was being used in an entirely non-offensive context. I'm not going to argue against your ruling because you all apparently reached this ruling with a reasoning that had nothing to do with concerns of incidental racism. But I am now curious as to whether your ruling will apply to all other articles that use the word "native(s)" in some way or form, or even phrases like "native to" or something along those lines. I hope it won't, because I feel doing so would be a silly overreaction, but I digress.

Hope to hear from you about the matter soon. Thanks! GrammarFreak01 (talk) 05:11, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
