Welcome to Bulbapedia, Rockersk08!

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.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • Keep an eye on the Messages from the Editor on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either 130 or 0233 on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily 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 capital B. The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon or other media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy.
  • 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.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • Image uploading is done on Bulbagarden Archives, a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded. To activate your account at the Archives and Bulbanews, please login there using the same username and password you use here on Bulbapedia.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Rockersk08/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
  • All users are allowed to edit the userspace 3 times a day. If you edit more than 3 times, you may be subjected to a warning. If you ignore the warning, you will be given three chances to comply. If you do not comply, your ability to modify the userspace will be revoked for a period of time.
  • Unless prior permission is given, no user is permitted to edit another user's page. Furthermore, edits to other users' pages are permitted only if there are problems that spread to other parts of Bulbapedia, such as broken links that appear on the wanted pages, switching out duplicate images that appear on the Archives, etc.
  • Fan fictions, missions, riddles, games, and anything else deemed not suitable for the wiki will not be allowed. If you would like to add something, but do not know if it is acceptable, ask an administrator.
  • A list of administrators that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! ----Kkllnn blastoise 19:57, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Noctowl}} instead of just [[Noctowl]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. --((Marton imos)) 21:56, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Also, {{m|Thunderbolt}} instead of [[Thunderbolt]], {{ashfr|the others}} instead of [[Ash's friends|the others]], {{MTR}} instead of {{MTR|Meowth}}, etc. Check out the list of link templates for more info. --Martonimos 04:51, 12 November 2008 (UTC)


Hey, you are doing great on completing the synopsis of the episodes. Keep up the good work. Jmath 23:17, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Still doing a good job, I see. J-J-M 15:50, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. Will keep working hard. --rockersk08 15:52, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

"Spoiler links"

There's no need to change them, because Ash's Grovyle redirects to Ash's Sceptile anyway, etc. ~ overgrownsol 00:00, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

True, but the Manual of style mentions this in order to maintain consistency. Check out the discussion page for the manual of style and it will explain. rockersk08 00:04, 13 March 2009 (UTC)


the {{g}} is NOT to be used as a workaround for lazily installing the word "Pokémon". so please stop, or ill get angry. and you wouldnt like me...when im angry.... -- MAGNEDETH 00:45, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Then what's it for? I'm simply following the link template policy. Are you referring to just the one word as a whole or chaining it, such as for a Pokémon Center? --rockersk08 14:19, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Pokedex entries

im so sry, i didnt no i wuz doin it wrong! i jjust saw the ones for Pidgey and Rattata, and so i based them of of those ones. also, a kid changed mine different, in the Oddish Pokedex entry, should i use urs and revert his, then fix it, im so confused :( -- User:Littlmiget123, April 28

Since there is a new format for the anime Pokédex entries, follow it, such as the case for Rampardos. By the way, I'm not trying to be mean, but please try to use appropriate spelling. It is something I prefer to see. --rockersk08 22:19, 28 May 2009 (UTC)


Don't remove it if it's actually meeting its purpose, such as {{g|Stadium 2}}. Only for things like {{g|Center}}. — THE TROM — 01:30, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

I was just about to ask for clarification too. I'll follow that. I'm having problems editing though, since the system sometimes reads me as logged in and other times not. --rockersk08 01:36, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
Server error. It's happening to everyone. — THE TROM — 01:38, 4 June 2009 (UTC)


  The Golden Bulbasaur Award

Congratulations! For your outstanding service to Bulbapedia you have been awarded the Golden Bulbasaur Award for May, 2009 by the Bulbapedia editorial board!

Please place this template onto your userpage by putting {{User Award|GoldBulba|May, 2009}} among your userboxes.

--RexRacer 07:11, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Congrats, you deserve it.--ForceFire 07:12, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Awesome! I'll definitely keep working hard. --rockersk08 16:19, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Gloom from DP031

Yep, we are pretty much going with any form that a Pokémon is talked about. I really need to push them to start getting James' cards (the ones where Jessie says,"Who's that Pokémon" and James pulls out his cards). Happy very belated congrats on your award by the way ;) -MasterKenobi 01:31, 10 June 2009 (UTC)


OK I know now not to edit that much I just dont get the namepace means. Grungle7 - unsigned comment from Grungle7 (talkcontribs)

Warning people

Wait until it is an actual significant amount before warning people. That last user you warned had only edited the userspace thrice, which is completely okay. Only warn when people are actually doing something bad. MaverickNate 17:25, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I might have been a little quick to act there. But I also wanted to let the user know about the preview button as well. Still, I'll be more lenient about it. Thanks. --rockersk08 19:33, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Synopsis Edit + DP119

Thank you for editing that, I tried my best however I'm not at all good at using codes to provide links to other pages and thank you, your editting made it sound a lot better then mine. - unsigned comment from Thomas.thomson011 (talkcontribs)

Card origins...

mandate that it says {{game|Silver}} or {{game|Gold}}. Don't change them MaverickNate 00:48, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Where specifically does it say that? Just wanting to make sure. --rockersk08 01:18, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
The TCGMOS that I'm creating MaverickNate 01:22, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
Understood. --rockersk08 01:24, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

But it needs a page.

A.J.'s Sandshrew cannot be deleted, for it is not FAN FICTION. And I don't wanna start another fight. User: Sandshrew-san, User talk: Sandshrew-san-my sigSEGOOGA!

Did you not read the message I put on your talk page? It will link you to the anime Pokémon notability requirements. --rockersk08 17:39, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

No, I didn't. This discussion is officially over. -Sandshrew-san - unsigned comment from Sandshrew-san (talkcontribs)

G/S walkthrough

Yeah, I saw the changes you made. Thanks for the help, I'll be sure to double-check that from now on. --KCorp4000 16:44, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Onix Trivia

Hi there, just wanted to ask why my addition to the trivia section of the Onix page was removed? Is there a policy against those? Or is it because it was deemed opinion? Hellkaiserryo12 17:13, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Good thing you asked. I don't know all the details, but sprite trivia is no longer allowed. I'll find out more. --rockersk08 17:15, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
Here. Even though it's a proposed policy, it is quite logical. --rockersk08 17:17, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
Ah, ok. Thanks. Hellkaiserryo12 17:20, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Redirect Links

Yeah thats fine don't worry about it. I didn't realize you were doing that - sorry for undoing your revisions :). LugiaRocks 01:41, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
