Please take note of the difference between "its" and "it's". The first one is the possessive, as in "its ears are soaked". The second is a contraction of "it is", such as "it's raining". --TTEchidna 09:38, 6 July 2007 (UTC)


Welcome to Bulbapedia, Phred!

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.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

Well, since we're an encyclopedia, we try not to use "you" in there, since we don't want to talk to the reader. TTEchidna 23:10, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
