Welcome to Bulbapedia, FireMeowth!

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.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • 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 é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either 130 or 0233 on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily 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 capital B. 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.
  • 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. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded. To activate your account at the Archives and Bulbanews, please login there using the same username and password you use here on Bulbapedia.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:FireMeowth/(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.
  • All users are allowed to edit the userspace 3 times a day. If you edit more than 3 times, you may be subjected to a warning. If you ignore the warning, you will be given three chances to comply. If you do not comply, your ability to modify the userspace will be revoked for a period of time.
  • Unless prior permission is given, no user is permitted to edit another user's page. Furthermore, edits to other users' pages are permitted only if there are problems that spread to other parts of Bulbapedia, such as broken links that appear on the wanted pages, switching out duplicate images that appear on the Archives, etc.
  • Fan fictions, missions, riddles, games, and anything else deemed not suitable for the wiki will not be allowed. If you would like to add something, but do not know if it is acceptable, ask an administrator.
  • A list of administrators that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --ニョロトノ666 01:21, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Buck and Flint

It's confirmed stop removing it. --☆Coolピカチュウ! 22:30, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry buddy, but CP over here is right. It's confirmed in at least one canon (manga). Don't revert it anymore. If you'll turn this into an edit war, you'll get a nice cooling down period. --electAbuzzzz 22:39, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Wrong. It hasn't been confirmed in any way. If you're going to claim it's confirmed, at least provide some proof. If you can't, I'll revert it. --FireMeowth 23:00, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
It hasn't been released yet, but it showed up in a magazine. I haven't seen it myself, to be honest, but CP is the Project Manga leader and I trust him on any manga-related issue. Anyway, that's not even the point - the point is, that edit warring is against the rules, even if you're right. You have to sort it out through discussion - and the moment you revert a revert, and especially if you do it now that it's an admin revert, that would be considered edit warring. And yes, I would block for edit warring - whether you're right or wrong. Don't revert it again unless you get admin approval. --electAbuzzzz 23:11, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
I know it hasn't been released yet. I also know that many assumed that it was proved because of a scan of Buck standing in front of the silhouette of Flint. I also know that he was standing in front of Aaron, Bertha, Lucian, every Gym Leader in Sinnoh, and all the Sinnoh Frontier Brains as well, and I'm quite sure that it said nothing about who Buck's brother was... --FireMeowth 23:19, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
If I may butt in, a user has claimed on Flint's talk page that if the player talks to Buck during the Stark Mountain adventure, he will say that Flint is his brother. I haven't checked it for myself though. --ケンジガール 05:44, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
He never says WHO his brother is. The only thing he says is that his brother is a member of the Elite Four. It could be any male Elite Four member... "My big brother's one of the Elite Four. So, of course it's only normal that I'd be better than ordinary folks. But that's not what I want. I want to be tough on my own terms. It wouldn't be fair to the Pokémon that chose to be with me." - Buck --FireMeowth 15:20, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, but I completely trust CoolPikachu. If he says he saw it in a manga, I believe him. --ケンジガール 05:04, 20 July 2009 (UTC)


Hey, thanks for doing stuff with Rumble. You probably noticed that I moved the charts to the correct location pages. Let me know if you have updated and correct lists of Pokémon, and I'll make more charts. :) Jazzmoth 21:24, 13 December 2009 (UTC)


Please remember to sign your comments on talk pages. I'm not gonna bother explaining, you've got a welcome template for that.--Pokélova! 16:50, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
