Welcome to Bulbapedia, Josiahsays!

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!

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! --ForceFire 03:17, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Please remember and heed the above advice. You don't need to save the same page many times over a couple hours, just use preview until you're all done. Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:58, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

Talk page comments

Please do not respond to talk page comments over six months old, especially when said conversation has already been resolved, thus there is no need to further the discussion. Also, do not comment to add speculation and opinion, like what you think Lana's age is, the talk page is for improving articles not small talk. Thank you.--ForceFire 04:41, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Okay, sorry, I'm still a bit new here. :( ----Josiahsays (talk) 13:30, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Linking Pokémon articles

Hey! Whenever you link a Pokémon article, always be sure to use the {{p}} template, otherwise you're leaving behind a redirect. For example, {{p|Guzzlord}} is the correct usage, not [[Guzzlord]]. Thank you! GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:19, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Talk page policy

Hey! Whenever you post on a talk page, any talk page, it would be preferable if you use the "+" button at the top. It will allow you to automatically create a brand-new section on the talk page. I see you've tried to manually create your own section, which caused a spacing problem in the process. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 01:10, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

Ah, thank you! I'm sorry about that — I rarely use talk pages. Thanks for the tips! Josiahsays (talk) 01:38, 16 December 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome. :) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 01:44, 16 December 2019 (UTC)
