Welcome to Bulbapedia, HarmonytheRocketEeveon!

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!

For future reference, we prefer if you don't go back and sign a post after making it; it messes up the timestamps. Use the unsigned template and the time from the edit history. And don't worry, you're not in trouble or anything! Just letting you know. And hey, welcome to the site. Xolroc (talk) 03:04, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, Xolroc. How do I use the unsigned template and time from edit history? - unsigned comment from HarmonytheRocketEeveon (talkcontribs) 03:44, 11 January 2017
The unsigned template is used by entering {{unsigned|(name)|(timestamp)}} (which results in - unsigned comment from (name) (talkcontribs) (timestamp)). You can click on the "history" tab at the top of the page (will be next to "edit") to see the page's edit history, then just find the edit where you or someone else added the unsigned comment and copy the date and time from there. Feel free to ask, by the way, if you need any further help. Xolroc (talk) 05:17, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
Like this? By the way, do you mean I shouldn't sign it after posting it, or not at all?- unsigned comment from HarmonytheRocketEeveon (talkcontribs) 09:28, 11 January 2017‎
You're doing it correctly, but if possible, please remember to sign your comments properly the first time with ~~~~ so you don't have to go back and use the unsigned template afterward. Preferably, you should always be signing with ~~~~ before you hit "Save page". The unsigned template just exists as a backup for just in case you don't remember to sign.

Thank you, pumpkinking! I really needed that cleared up . . . HarmonytheRocketEeveon (talk) 16:37, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
No problem! Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 16:40, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Also, if you want to edit multiple sections of the page, make sure that you click "edit this page" at the top of the page rather than editing it by section. Thanks! --Xolroc (talk) 23:00, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Alright, I'll do that now. I just had different summaries for separate edits. Should I just summarize it all at once? HarmonytheRocketEeveon (talk) 23:03, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Do try to, yes. We at Bulbapedia like to do whatever possible to reduce server load, and making one big edit rather than several small ones is a good way to do that. And don't worry if you can't fit everything into an edit summary; the summary is there for convenience and is not strictly necessary. Xolroc (talk) 23:15, 17 January 2017 (UTC)


Can I ask why you deleted an appearance that I added to Magikarp's page a month or so ago? I saw the edit history and after I added it, you would be the only person who could have deleted, so why did you it and don't do it again. Playerking95 (talk) 11:09, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

  • I'm sorry, but the egg distance for a Magikarp in Pokemon Go is 2kms. Why did you change it to N/A? Pidgey and Rattata should be the only Pokemon not to hatch from eggs now. HarmonytheRocketEeveon (talk) 15:44, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
