Welcome to Bulbapedia, Pika fanatic!

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!

We only display genders if they are explicitly stated so in the original Japanese episode or via Attract or Cute Charm. In cases for Gender Differences, if a Pokemon is caught before Gen IV (e.g. Misty's Gyarados), then Gender Difference cannot be used as confirmation. Thank you.--ForceFire 16:19, 23 September 2017 (UTC)


I noticed several of your edits seem to be trying to rush to add things, even if you're not properly formatting them or even if not enough information is known yet to be able to properly do what you're trying to do. I urge you: be patient. The staff will take care of everything USUM-related when the games actually come out. In the meantime, blindly rushing to add things is more likely to make a mess than to be productive. Thanks for your understanding. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 01:34, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

Please keep this under consideration, and furthermore, please don't steal other sites' translations of Japanese material in your rush to add things. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 22:30, 10 October 2017 (UTC)


I noticed some minor irregularities with your signature that imply you may be manually typing it. In case you aren't aware, I wanted to inform you that typing four tildes (~~~~) will automatically produce your signature, so you don't have to go to the effort of manually typing it and you don't have to worry about accidentally making minor errors. Thanks! Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 19:45, 15 October 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! --Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 19:51, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

The answer to your question on SOS Battle...

... is that when that line was written, the guardian deities were not yet known to be Legendary. Good catch — thanks for fixing it! Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 23:14, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Talk page policy

As I reminded you in edit summaries on both Talk:Mythical Pokémon and Talk:Phione (Pokémon), the talk page policy dictates that talk pages are not for idle speculation, such as your discussion of whether USUM will have a National Dex. If you want to talk about that, please take it to the forums or wait until USUM actually come out and we see whether it happens. Thanks. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:12, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

Fixed, are you happy now? Pika fanatic (talk)Pika fanatic 22:29, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
Please also note the other reason you've been getting reverted: the talk page policy says that "Unless (...) there is a good reason to revitalize discussion, comments on sections older than six months old should not be made". A what-if like this isn't a good reason to revive the discussion when you could just wait until we know for sure. Then, if the National Dex is included, you can revive that section.

I noticed on a recent talk page post it appears that your signature does not include any links. Per our signature policy, your signature must contain a link to either your user page or your talk page. Could you please fix it so it complies? Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 21:22, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
