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!

Commas in numbers

Out of curiosity, where are you getting the fact that numbers have to have 5 digits before you can put a comma from? I know that in math, and in the games themselves, the comma is at every point that's a multiple of three digits to the left, but I thought I should probably ask you where you're getting this from to avoid an edit war. -EVsandIVsaurs 13:10, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

It's funny, I could have sworn I read that somewhere in the policies, but maybe it was another site. This site doesn't have a policy with commas and numbers. I will say that in the past various pages haven't used commas with numbers that have 4 digits, but I checked a few other places where they have five digits, and they don't use commas there either. You are right, the games do now have the commas with four digit numbers, but I do think we should be consistent with the past of the site.
Thanks for posting in my talk so we don't do an edit war, I wouldn't want to do that either.Linkmastr001 (talk) 23:10, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
I think that I'll go ask one of the admins whether or not it should be put in. -EVsandIVsaurs 23:24, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
