Welcome to Bulbapedia, Sabata414!

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:Sabata414/(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.
  • 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! --electAbuzzzz 12:45, 23 September 2008 (UTC)


Please don't spam the mainspace. Stuff like the sentance on "Ash gets kissed in Heroes" should go in your profile. PL12 22:30, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh, and you should always sign your name at the end of your comment, not the beginning. AND, you should sign with four of these: ~~~~

--Tavisource 23:16, 30 September 2008 (UTC)


Make sure that when you sign things, you have the link to "User:Sabata414" and not just "Sabata414". The later places the page on the wanted pages, when it shouldn't be on there. One way you should be able to fix this is by signing off after every post to talk pages with: ~~~~. Please make sure you do this from now on. MoldyOrange 23:16, 30 September 2008 (UTC)


Slow down on editing the User: namespace. There are only three userspace edits allowed per day, and you have gone over the limit. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --PsychicRider 16:31, 19 October 2008 (UTC)


This is your second warning. Please refrain from editing the User: namespace too rapidly, or you will lose privileges.--RexRacer -talk 23:37, 19 October 2008 (UTC)


Please include your username in your signature. Thanks, --RexRacer -talk 23:48, 19 October 2008 (UTC)


Stop editing your userpage NOW! You've edited too much today. If you don't, there will be consiquences. --ケンジガール 00:10, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

The server has moved into tomorrow, Kenji...--RexRacer -talk 00:13, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
By the rules TTE and I decided on through AIM, you already should have lost your privileges. However, since I've been slacking off and haven't written the article on the policy yet, you have an excuse, so you don’t get a penalty. I plan to write it later tonight, BTW, for anyone who's interested. --ニョロトノ666 00:15, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
What's your time zone? I'm interested in seeing the new policy--RexRacer -talk 00:19, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

So what? Even if it did this person has edited constantly for the past few hours. I protected your page so you can't edit anymore for today. --ケンジガール 00:21, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

I know. But you are following the spirit of the law, not the letter. And the new set of rules hasn't been written up yet. I don't think that Sabata414's page should be locked.--RexRacer -talk 00:24, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Kenji, I honestly think she didn't know. And, technically, it's a new day now and I don't believe TTE and I agreed on a carry-over policy, so, however ridiculous it may be, it's alright. IMO, that needs to change, so I'll account for that in the writeup. And RR, I'm in Central time. It's about 7:30 right now. --ニョロトノ666 00:26, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
It's okay, Kenji-girl, I made the same mistake as you did before. And Sabata414, your unblcoked! Yay!--Tavisource 02:00, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
You're acting like making it so this girl can't edit her userpage for a day is so harsh. It's not like I blocked her. A lot of people don't know the rules of userpages when the create an account here. That's why when they edit too much, we give them warning messages to stop. But she didn't stop. So why are we bending the rules in her case. What ever. Do as you wish. --ケンジガール 04:11, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
(*cough)...Sabata414 is a guy.--Tavisource 04:19, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Well Politoed666 called him a she so I assumed... --ケンジガール 04:23, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
It's obvious that he's a guy when you look at his user page.--Tavisource 04:26, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Ever heard of a lesbian? --ケンジガール 04:28, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I was going to say that...but I find that he/she might be offended.--Tavisource 04:28, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
