Welcome to Bulbapedia, Rlisman!

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.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem, can be found here.

Don't advertise your site on pages. We're a wiki, not the classifieds section. Tina δ 04:00, 30 January 2008 (UTC)


Can I ask you who in the world thought Camerupt would evolve into Torkoal? First of all, Camerupt is bigger than Torkoal. Most of the Pokémon that evolve become bigger than there previous form. Second of all, both Numel and Camerupt are based off camels which are also mammals. Torkoal is based off a tortoise which is a reptile. They're not even part of the same animal kingdom. Tell me, did many fans think this, or just you? Just because Torkoal comes directly after Camerupt in the Pokédex doesn't mean it'll evolve from it. --ケンジ ガール 04:27, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
