Welcome to Bulbapedia, Greysky!

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.
  • 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 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.
  • 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!PokeManiac102 01:08, 18 February 2008 (UTC)


When you make a comment, you do it UNDER EVERYTHING. Not inbetween a comment and a person's sig. And talking about sigs, please don't forget to sign your sig at the end of your comment.PokeManiac102 01:12, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

I mistakenly did it, it's fixed now. Greysky


By the way, that is not how to show your sig. Since you don't have a sig, your sig is


But you can make a sig like mine. OR, I could make a sig for you. Would you like a sig?PokeManiac102 01:17, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Hm, yes, I'm not too experienced with wikis. Greysky

Yes, but would you like a sig similar to mine? (with the images and colors)PokeManiac102 01:33, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

"Hm, yes, I'm not too experienced with wikis." :) Greysky

Well then, What is your favorite color? Favorite Pokémon? We'll start off with thatPokeManiac102 02:01, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Red, Swellow and Jolteon. Also, I think I should reply you on YOUR talk page... ^^' Greysky

No this is about YOU. And would you like a background? if you do, what color?PokeManiac102 02:27, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Hm, ok. A black background suits it well :D Greysky


How's this?


Great :D thanks ^^ If I want to, how can I change it? Greysky

When you click Grey, you go to your userpage. When you click sky, you go to your talk page


  1. At the top of your page, you will see your username, your talk, your preferences, your watchlist...
  2. Click my preferences
  3. Somewhere, you will see Nickname
  5. Now in the box, copy and paste this into it.
  1. Save it
  2. Now, all you have to do to show your sig is to type ~~~~

If you wish to edit your sig, do it here

Don't forget to test it out to make sure that you haven't made a mistake.PokeManiac102 03:25, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, I think it's working now :D Also, how do I put that profile tags (such as those that says the nationality, the age, etc.) on my page? Greysky 03:47, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm not a professional about that. Ask someone like TTEchidna or Theryguy512PokeManiac102 03:53, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Hm, ok, thanks :D Greysky 04:08, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

I could help you if you want with the profile tags. Just put '''<div class="userbox">''' before the tags and '''</div>''' after the tags. Oh, and about the nationality tag, see if you like this.....

SO! How's the sig workin out for ya?PokeManiac102 22:13, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

It's working great, I really like it :D By the way, is there any way I could make multiple sigs? Greysky 22:21, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

No, but you can change it into a different sig, then change it backPokeManiac102 22:23, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Ah, ok. Greysky 22:37, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

I mean seriously, I changed my signature many times.








Well, that look like multiple sigs to me, since all of them work the same. Greysky 23:24, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Yup, but I didn't use them all at once. Only onePokeManiac102 23:28, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Hm, yeah, I understand. Greysky 23:31, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

On the side

Would you like me to put your user tags on the sideC Isfor Cookie

He means would you want him to put your user tags in a User Box Tower?PokeManiac102

Well, I'm still putting the tags, so when I'm finished, I'll call you (: Greysky 00:52, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

OkayC Isfor Cookie

Okay, if you want to put a message above the tower, then type it above the code, but if you want to put it below it, type below the part that says

OkayC Isfor Cookie

I can do itPokeManiac102 02:02, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

nevermindPokeManiac102 02:03, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
By the way, there's a lot of empty space. Try filling itPokeManiac102 02:03, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Doesn't copying the tag right from the pages they are on put the user page in the wrong category?!?! MoldyOrange 02:05, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Whoa, that waste a lot of bytes!PokeManiac102 02:07, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Ah really? :( well, I'll fix it. EDIT: Actually, I don't know any other way of doing it other than copying and pasting from the edit page. [/noob]

Any suggestions of what I should fill the empty space? Greysky 02:10, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Your teams, what you plan to do on bulbapedia, possible trades, etcC Isfor Cookie

Um, I don't like trading :x But ok, I'll do the rest Greysky 02:14, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

GASP! YOU DON"T TRADE! ah vellC Isfor Cookie

Yup. And most of the time my Wi-Fi Connection doesn't work. Sucks. Greysky 02:23, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Do you battle people?C Isfor Cookie

Sometimes I battle my friends. I'm lucky because Pokémon isn't so popular here anymore, and I have like, 15 friends who play it. I battle them, I think it's really fun :D Greysky 02:27, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Don't edit your page, i messed up the codingC Isfor Cookie

Sory, have someone else fix the codeC Isfor Cookie

I don't see any mess here o_o what happened? Greysky 02:38, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

There's something wrong. The isn't workingPokeManiac102 02:42, 19 February 2008 (UTC)


You should have typed:

{| class="userboxitem" style="border: 1px solid #FFF600;" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" ! style="background: #2CF0E9;" | [[Image:ElectricSoldierPorygon.jpg|50px]] | style="background: #FF4393; color: #FFF600;" | This user has watched '''''[[EP038|<span style="color: #2CF0E9;">Computer Soldier Porygon</span>]]'''''. |} <noinclude>[[Category:Anime tags]]</noinclude> When you should have typed: {{User PoryonEp}} PokeManiac102 02:49, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Uhuh, I did it in almost all of them x( How can I use the tags without having to copy&paste from the "edit" part? Ya, I'm a noob when it comes about wiki sites. x_x Greysky 02:53, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

If the tag is called

Template:User PorygonEp

Then you type {{User PorygonEp}} PokeManiac102 02:58, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I'll try. Greysky 03:01, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

I fixed some of them for you. MoldyOrange 03:03, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Hm, looks quite easy, I'll try to fix the rest, thank you all :) Greysky 03:05, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, it's done, great \o/ Greysky 03:57, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, right when I was fixing it my laptop diedC Isfor Cookie

Brasileiros no Bulbapedia

É, não tem praticamente nenhum brasileiro por aqui. E não, não tenho Orkut. うずまきハルカ 16:53, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Olá! Eu também sou brasileiro. Muito prazer. Netto-kun Talk 09:51, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Só pra avisar, agora Bulbapedia tem uma política sobre assinaturas. Está na Main Page, se não me engano. Por causa disso, assinaturas não podem mais ter imagens, entre outras coisas. うずまきハルカ 23:02, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Signature policy

There's a new signature policy that says, among other things, that you can't have images in your sig. You can make a new one (or have someone else make it for you) and make it flashy as you want, but first, review the policy and make sure you follow it when making your new sig. --Martonimos((Talk)) 18:45, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Contest Tag

A usertag you have been using, {{User Five Masters Ribbons}}, has been moved to a new location due to a split in the usertag between the Contests of Generation III and Super Contests of Generation IV. Your tag has been switched to that template's new location, {{User Contest Master}}. If you have only mastered the Super Contests, please change the tag to {{User Super Contest Master}}. If you hav emastered both, go ahead and add both. --tc26 14:52, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
