That's right, I finally did this to my user talk page.


None yet.


Welcome to Bulbapedia, SharKing!

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.
  • 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. 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.
  • 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:SharKing/(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 the admins that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --tc26 13:49, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Pardon, but...

Use the link templates, don't say [[Sand-Attack (move)|Sand Attack]], just use {{m|Sand Attack}}. It's less of a pain in the ass and it's official policy anyway. Also, useless trivia for the types, such as them being the "only" thing that is weak/resistant/immune to something is pretty discouraged. TTEchidna 23:17, 24 July 2008 (UTC)


I didn't know. I was only trying to help Bulbapedia be as detailed as possible. Cut me some slack. I'm still new here. I still need time to get used to things.


Don't create articles for Pokémon belonging to characters of the day. They are among the least-notable characters in the anime who deserve an article. --PAK Man Talk 20:26, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Sho's Raichu

Pokémon belonging to one-time characters are not notable. I'm sorry, but the page will have to be deleted. --electAbuzzzz (TALK) 20:26, 2 September 2008 (UTC)


Sorry to bother you, but I'm new and I have a question. I was looking through a couple of articles, and I saw that the names of video games were not in italics. I checked out BP:MOS#Formatting_preferences, and it mentioned that episodes were to be italicized, but I couldn't find anything about italicizing the names of games. Is there a policy that says they shouldn't be in italics? Or can I italicize them? Thanks. Blastoise 21:38, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

You seem to be a competent battler

Hi, im DCM and i was wondering if you cared to battle? im always looking for new people to battle, and i think you sound pretty good. im a part of a league called the IPGLso, id prefer if you contacted me there for the battle. the BP admins dont like this sort of stuff on talk pages. --DCM((TalkContributions)) 23:20, 23 September 2008 (UTC)


Slow down on editing the User: namespace. 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. --MoldyOrange 21:28, 28 September 2008 (UTC)


The new Signature Policy states that no one is allowed to have images in their signature anymore. They are distracting and unneeded. Please refrain from adding images to your signature. MoldyOrange 21:28, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

All right. I won't include moving Sharpedo pics. SharKing

Pokémon Platinum Version

Hi! I saw your question on your User Page, and from what I hear DS games are region free! This might help [1] Hope it did --Britannia's Blade 21:51, 28 September 2008 (UTC)


Looks like you found my secret page. I didn't really think anyone would find it at first....how did you find it? It's amazing...--Tavisource 02:54, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
I was looking around for users who showed some powerful battling Pokémon when I came across your page. Then, that orange banner of yours intrigued me. I thought: "Secret page? Could it be what I'm looking for?" Then, the rest is history. SharKing 03:00, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Powerful trainers you mean? Then you should go here: [[2]]. That is the International Pokémon Gym League, featuring eight powerful gym leaders from Bulbapedia. You can always battle them whenever they're open and win badges.--Tavisource 03:47, 5 October 2008 (UTC)


I was gonna add you under another section. Im just really lazy. Ill finish a little more by tomorrow--DCM((Nag at Me!Edits))

Thank you.

Finally! Someone understands! Dialgarules 21:22, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Sho's Raichu

I mostly wanted to do it because Sho's Raichu is totally awesome. However, yes, I agree that it was semi-noticable, seeing as how it was another chance to show that Pikachu will NEVER become a Raichu. . No matter how much I want it to.- unsigned comment from ShinjiLover (talkcontribs)


I'm SO glad that they have the 'edit' options in these User talks. . I always seem to foget my signature! I hate being a newbie. I'm probably not going to get too flashy until I learn a little more about Bulbapedia.

Also, thank you sooo much for the Japanese symbols for their names! How do you get those? I also need one for the first evolved form of my Fakémon, Ryumi.

Hey, Kingy! Can I call ya Kingy? Anyway, I had a request. Is there any way that you can get the name 'Nareta' in Kanji (or whatever you use, I have no clue. .)? Please and thank you! If you can't, that's fine. =]

Hey there! Finally got off my ass and made a signature! Yay! I used your idea and colors. What do you think?

Love, シンジShinjiLover, who finally got off her ass and made a decent signature.

Yes, it's really a weird coincidence... it would have been weirder if we've been born on the same day xD !!!

I noticed that you play Trozei and Mystery Dungeon 2. I have some questions about them. Could you post on my talk page when you have the chance?--MisterE13 17:48, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

If you're willing to talk about this, please do it on the forums or via IM / e-mail instead, it doesn't belong here to the wiki talk pages. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 17:53, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
I want to know which Pokémon have alternate form sprites so I can make templates that show them. Nothing else.--MisterE13 18:31, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Oh, that's OK to ask here. At least for MD2, I'd guess all Pokémon with different forms in main games have also them in MD2, but I have no idea about Trozei. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 19:06, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Don't worry, I know not to start non-'pedia discussions. Also, @ SharKing, you actually don't have to restart this conversation on my page, I'll just be watching this one.--MisterE13 19:39, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
psst. Want me to do a guest pokemon of the week?DCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))
@DCM: Go ahead and do one on my page. Better to have a guest Poke-o'-da-Week than none at all.
@MisterE13: In PMD2, Pokémon have their alternate sprites; Deoxys changes form upon going to the next floor. As for Trozei, I'm clueless.
Christmas in 3 days! I'm excited! SharKingHo ho ho! 17:51, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Go to any Pokémon page go to 'In side games'. You see the "portrait" thing we have for PMD2? Are those any different for Unown, Spinda, Castform, Deoxys, Burmy, Wormadam, Cherrim, Shellos or Gastrodon. (Giratina, and Rotom didn't have any yet and Shaymin and Arceus wern't released). I'll ask someone else about Trozei.--MisterE13 18:24, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

OK, SK, I put up user tags. I'll do some writing later. By the way, have you done any research on the stuff discussed ^above^?--MisterE13

In PMD2, there are different "portraits" for Unown, Burmy, Wormadam, Shellos, and Gastrodon that I'm sure about. I still need to research Deoxys, Castform, and Cherrim, and I doubt the "difference" thing applies for Spinda. As for Trozei, still clueless. シャーキング 私に相談してください。 自分の編集を参照してください。 03:13, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Well that second batch changes forms anyway so they could get away with one portrait.--MisterE13 03:19, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
I don't suppose there are any gender differences in PMD2.--MisterE13 17:58, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Actually, there are. Look at Hippopotas and Hippowdon, the Pokémon with the most obvious differences. SharKing Productions 21:36, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
I mean in the portraits. I don't actually have the game. Just wondering about it for template purposes.--MisterE13 00:21, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
I have videos uploading now. To kill time, I'll look into it. SharKing Productions 00:27, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Portraits get gender differences. I just found out. SharKing Productions 00:46, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm gonna go ahead and assume that anyone who's gender difference affected body part appears in the portrait get them in PMD2. Anh major exceptions I should know about?--MisterE13 22:46, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
None that I can think of.
On an alternative note, do you battle over Wi-Fi? SharKing Productions 02:59, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
No, my Wi-Fi's broken and even if it wern't, I'm not much of a competitive battler. I'm also not very active in the forums. I spend too much time on the computer as is.--MisterE13 22:52, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

I think it'll be better to just make a section in the Wonder Orbs article and make a redirect to that section using the real name. That's what I've been doing with the Orb articles that you've been creating. Since there's so little information for each Orb... - espeonA 23:22, 10 January 2009 (UTC)


make Wonder Orb pages? They're not needed. ht14 23:22, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

I don't think we need status-condition pages, either... If you're talking about the ones in Mystery Dungeon, there's a Status ailments in Mystery Dungeon page. ;) - espeonA 23:25, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
What you COULD do...add the orbs on the Wonder Orbs page. There are still missing orbs, so you can add to it. For instance, the Shocker Orb. Also, for other Mystery Dungeon items, see Pokémon Mystery Dungeon items. ht14 23:31, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
