Welcome to Bulbapedia, Inkster!

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!

Rei/Akari's age

I included an "~" sign next to Legends: Arceus protagonists' age, as Cyllene says "15 or so". I also specified that this information is only confirmed when the character is the protagonist, not an NPC. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:27, 10 February 2022 (UTC)

She said "look" in that same sentence, meaning that she was assuming the PC's age based on their physical appearance. It's not that deep. Inkster (talk) 07:21, 10 February 2022 (UTC)


Please remember to always sign your comments. You can sign your comments with 4 tildes (~) or clicking the signature stamp ( ) on the top of the edit box. It should also be noted that once your comment has been marked as unsigned, you cannot replace it with your signature as it will give off the wrong time stamp. Thank you for taking your time to read this message, have a good day. --Bfdifan2006something to say? · My work documentation 13:21, 10 February 2022 (UTC)

Talk page discussions

Please allow time for discussion to take place before making changes when there is an on-going conversation on a given subject. Even if several days, or even weeks, have passed, changes should not be made until there is a clear consensus. There is no reason to rush in to make these changes. Going in and making them before everyone has had time to pitch in will not help resolve or prevent disputes. If a conversation has gone stagnant you can feel free to bump the discussion by leaving a new comment. To be clear, this is not just about the discussion going on at the Cyllene page, as this appears to be a recurring issue for you recently. Landfish7 13:45, 17 April 2022 (UTC)

Edit at Calaba

I don't get it: Special:Diff/3520383. I styled the reference after the one on Cyrus's page. Also, if the quote is italicized, you do not need to wrap it with quote marks. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 19:35, 13 May 2022 (UTC)

Other pages that have quotes as references like in the revision, so I thought it should be consistent. Inkster (talk) 20:18, 13 May 2022 (UTC)

RSE May's age

Most people seem to think May is 10 or 11 in RSE.

Personally I think May looks to be 7 or 8 in RSE but the Pokemon company officially said 10 or 11. Mario60866 (talk) 15:03, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

ORAS explicitly confirmed that she and Brendan are 12 years old. Red's article lists him as 11 in FRLG despite being only mentioned in RGBY, so why shouldn't that also apply to Brendan and May?Inkster (talk) 15:05, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

Also, ORAS May looks visually older than RSE May. With Red for example he looks about the same between the two versions of the game.

RSE May is shorter than ORAS May by about a growth spurt or so, and looks slightly less... Developed. (In PG terms) Mario60866 (talk) 15:09, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

I would argue the opposite. I think ORAS actually looks visually younger than RSE May. I don't see how she looks significantly shorter than ORAS May at all. The official art is also scaled differently, so that's not a fair comparison.
It doesn't actually matter how old a character "appears to look" anyway. Only official confirmation matters. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 15:20, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

Ages (anime)

Unless a characters age is specifically stated, don't post as that is speculation--BigDocFan (talk) 21:51, 1 July 2022 (UTC)


I was being kind when I partially blocked you, but it's become pretty clear that you are the type that refuses to use talk pages when it comes to disputes. Do not just continuously revert edits or hastily make certain edits to try to get your own way. Use the talk page, discuss issues and problems. If you return and continue to refuse to use the talk page to sort out issues, you may receive another block. Thank you.--ForceFire 05:23, 2 July 2022 (UTC)

In the case of Bonnie, I was merely adding a source to back up her being less than 10. Inkster (talk) 14:47, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
