User talk:PokéSean

Welcome to Bulbapedia, PokéSean!

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!

Please do not make assumptions

Don't try to mention the possibility of a correlation with the games' storylines in the anime sections of a given character, as you did here. It falls under speculation, which is usually frowned upon here. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 01:34, 30 August 2018 (UTC)


Please remember to always sign your comments. You can sign your comments with 4 tildes (~) or clicking the signature stamp (Signature button.png) 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. --ForceFire 05:40, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Link templates

Please use link templates whenever necessary, do not use the standard linking method to link to articles. Example: {{tc|Lass}} instead of [[Lass (trainer class)|Lass]]. For a full list of link templates, see here.--ForceFire 04:34, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Link templates, again

Once again, instead of writing things like [[Swift (move)|Swift]], you can just use the {{m}} template to speed up the writing process. Thus, {{m|Swift}} would be the quicker option. Keep that in mind for next time. Thank you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 05:21, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Signing comments

This is a common problem for you. Please remember to sign your comments with four tildes (~) or by clicking on the signature button above the edit box. Don't resign or place a link to your userpage after you've made the comments, that's not how you sign comments. You also cannot re-sign an unsigned comment as it will give off the wrong timestamp. Thank you.--ForceFire 04:52, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Ok. But here's the problem. When I sign in, I don't my screen name linked. See when I am signing off. From, Sean 19:41, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
Did you customize your signature? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:45, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
How do I customize? - unsigned comment from PokéSean (talkcontribs)
I'm going to take that response as a "no". Okay, so you must type in this at the end of your messages: ~~~~ Then, you save, and it will be automatically turned into your signature. Understand? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:51, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
Once again, type this in at the end of your talk pages: ~~~~ Then, you save, and those four tildes will be automatically turned into your signature. Shouldn't be that hard. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:51, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
When I use the tildes, it just says Sean instead of PokéSean. - unsigned comment from PokéSean (talkcontribs)
Unless you customized your signature by going to your preferences, that should not happen. If you customized it and eventually don't remember, you can always change it again to look the way you want. Suic (talk) 00:57, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
Again, you should go to your preferences, where you can change your signature. And pay atention to whether you're treating it as wikitext or not. Suic (talk) 00:51, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
I notice you are still continuing to remove the {{unsigned|PokéSean}} from other users' talk pages. Please stop doing that as it gives incorrect time stamps. An admin has already explained this as has another user. Just remember to sign off using four tildes after adding comments and any conversation to a talk page, thank you.

Talk pages

Talk pages are generally to be used for improving the wiki, not for small chit chat about who will be competing in the league. If you want to speculate on that, you can go to the forums. Thank you.--ForceFire 05:04, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

Talk page policy

It seems you're no longer properly signing talk page messages, as you did here. Remember, type in four tildes (~). That'll automatically put in your signature. Thank you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:29, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

You're no longer doing that. Once again, type in four tildes (~) and it will automatically code in your signature for you. If you have any questions, please ask them first before proceeding on a talk page message, but this should be a simple, straightforward process. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:58, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
Maybe there is a glitch. PokéSean 01:13, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
Judging from what your signature turned into, it seems that you used five tildes instead of four, which prints only the time stamp without your username. I would recommend using the preview button so you can be sure your signature is working. Suic (talk) 01:38, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
You seem to be doing it correctly this time. Like Suic12- said, use the preview button to double-check your signatures. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:08, 21 July 2019 (UTC)


This has been a constant problem for you. Please sign your comments, it is not that hard. All you are doing is typing out four tildes (~). Or, you can simply click on the signature button right above the edit box. You have consistently refused to sign your comments. This is your final warning regarding unsigned comments.--ForceFire 05:26, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
