Welcome to Bulbapedia, Superbreeder!

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:Superbreeder/(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! --PsychicRider 21:23, 3 October 2008 (UTC)


Just curious, is this a game quote, or something from fanon, specifically from you? Bulbapedian 23:15, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

--Re: This is a quote from Entei's trophy on Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Sorry I forgot to include that. Also, I am a new member and do not know all the requirements for changing anything on this site yet. Superbreeder 03:19, 5 October 2008 (UTC)Superbreeder Suprerbreeder

I Need to Know...

How can I make a custom signature? I'd love it if I could have matching Aggron and Blaziken sprites on either side of my username in my signature. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thank you. Superbreeder 01:55, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Never mind. I figured it out. Next step will be the userpage. {{SUBST:Superbreeder]] What's up? 23:15, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Getting the Picture

I'd love to know how to get images onto other pages, particularly my userpage. If at all possible, a little help with getting tables on there, as well. That's the only thing keeping me from making a userpage. If you can help me, do not hesitate to tell me please. Superbreeder What's up? 03:03, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Yet again, I figured it out (I used another user's userpage as an example). Either way, if you come up with an idea for something you want me to include in my userpage --It doesn't look particularly interesting yet-- I am open for ideas. Just start a new comment, please. Superbreeder What's up? 03:08, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Talk page comments

Don't remove them. Even if it is your own talk page. --ケンジガール 00:58, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Why not? I've been to other people's talk pages, and some of them don't have the comment "Welcome" on their talk pages like I do. Did they erase it, or did they never get it? Superbreeder (Frazzle Snazzle) 20:13, 22 October 2008 (UTC)


Could you breed me a male Slakoth with the egg move Night Slash? If you could that would be fantastic. I would do it myself, but I don't have anything from it's evolutionary family. Thanks. TESHIGIGAS 21:25, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Certainly, but I will need your Friend code and probably one or two days to get a female. I know about Slaking's high attack, so I'm going for a Nature that boosts Attack, even though you didn't go into that. You are my very first breeding request, and I will do my best to get you what you want. Superbreeder (Frazzle Snazzle) 01:21, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I have the female, and I couldn't have asked for a better Nature! She has a Naughty nature, which is the perfect nature for a Slakoth, raising Attack and lowering Special Defense. Her siblings are going to the same place as all the other Pokémon leftover from breeding. Superbreeder 01:54, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
It's official. I have your male Slakoth. There is only going to be one complication in getting it to you. We're in totally different time zones. I live on the east coast of the United States, and in one of the comments on your talk page, it says you live all the way in England. We can use server time instead, though. I'm four hours behind the server, so it's 10:40 p.m. where I am when this message was typed. How can we work this out? By the way, just give me a Pokémon you don't care about in return. Superbreeder 02:43, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I got your message. My friend code info is: Tesh 2234 - 4626 - 4095. Also, the time it is where I live is the same time as the server. I'm on both AIM and MSN Messenger so if you wanted to add me/or I'll add you then it would make it easier to find a time slot to trade. But just let me know when you're usually on or when you are going to be on and I'll come on at the time to meet you. Thanks for breeding SLakoth for me, if there is anything that you'd want then let me know and I'll see what I can do. TESHIGIGAS 16:34, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
I am usually on between 8:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. on weekdays, and anytime after 4:00 p.m. on the weekends in your time zone. As for a Pokémon you can give me, how about either a Piplup♀, a Turtwig♀, or a female of their evolved forms? If you can't do that, I have no problem with that. I have until Platinum comes out in America to get Sinnoh Starters for one of my friends, and I want to breed Egg Moves into them for him, but I don't have females of those two. How about we meet up this weekend, like on Sunday? Superbreeder 21:11, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Seeing as you're online now, how about we trade now? XD TESHIGIGAS 23:23, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Sure, hold on a sec. Superbreeder 23:25, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
In fact, I'll be about five - ten minutes. I've just something to sort out before hand. Thanks, TESHIGIGAS 23:29, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
My DS's battery light is red...I'll go find an outlet, but I won't be at the computer. Superbreeder 23:35, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Something else popped up, didn't it? Just let me know when you're back. Superbreeder 23:56, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Edit conflict... Lol. Anyway, I'm ready to trade, though, I can't seem to find your Freind Code on your user page. Also I couldn't get you a female starter, all I have left is a Male Grass Knot Chimchar. So will box trash do you? TESHIGIGAS 23:58, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Yes, that's fine. Superbreeder 00:10, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Ok and your Friend Code? TESHIGIGAS 00:11, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
I was just about to say that. 4081-2307-8107. Superbreeder 00:13, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Sorry. Anyway, I'm online. Thanks for taking time to breed me a much needed Slakoth! XD TESHIGIGAS 00:17, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
It was nothing. That's why I'm doing this for members of BP. Breeding is easy, unless you have to chain breed which kinda makes it more complicated. Superbreeder 00:22, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks anyway. FYI, That Buneary should have a decent Speed IV. Although it's at level 14, it doesn't have any EV's because I put it in the Daycare to breed with (hence the name 10). Also, you were right, I was checking your Pokemon out. I do it to everyone I trade with. XD TESHIGIGAS 00:25, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Do you Breed With IV's?

Do you Breed for IV's or just moves?Because with Iv's you would be the SUPERBREEDER!--DCM((TalkContributions))

Good question. Usually I breed for IVs if Moves aren't an option, but it's very rare that I get the oportunity to do them together. I breed for moves, then choose the one that best emphasizes the stat I want, for example, I will choose a Shuckle if it has a Nature that does not raise attack or lower defense AND has something like "Sturdy body," or "Somewhat vain," as its character trait. Superbreeder (Frazzle Snazzle) 01:32, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Ah I see.Unfortunately for you IV's are wanted way over moves. Oh well, good luck with future breeding.--DCM((TalkContributions))
Not really. IVs are how I decide which Pokémon from the batch I want to keep, and which ones are going to the Ranch or onto GTS. Superbreeder 01:56, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
I am involved in many trading sites and trust me, IVS are wanted the most.A straight 31 pokemon is better than a pokemon with A Correct Nature and an Egg Move--DCM((Nag at Me!Edits))
Is there any way that you know of to make IVs not depend on the father? I think you may be suggesting I breed for IVs when fulfilling breeding requests like Tesh's. I will do that, but most people are going to ask for certain Egg Moves as well. Is there anything I can breed for you in the meantime? Superbreeder 20:28, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
If you could breed a Terrific Manetric with 31's in Speed and SP attack, that would be great.I dont really need an egg move.--DCM((Nag at Me!Edits))
I'll have to work on that. It might take a few weeks, I really don't know. That is a true project. I'm bored to tears right now, with nobody giving me a request. If I really can't get both stats with max IVs, can Nature be a substitute? The website pokemon.marriland.com/diamond_pearl is a reliable source for this kind of information, and the tables on that website show that Natures hane a greater impact on stats than IVs, which was why I wasn't too woried about them in the first place. Superbreeder 22:00, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Question Two: If maximum and minimum IVs for Speed and Special Attack for a Level One Electrike are the same, how can you tell if it has a 31 or a 0? Go into the Ultimate Stat Calculator on the page I mentioned earlier, and you'll see what I mean when you crunch the numbers (don't forget to tell it to show all Natures). Superbreeder 22:08, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

I would mind a 0 in SP attack less than a 0 in Speed.A nature can subsitute, as long as speed is not lowered.--DCM((Nag at Me!Edits))
Latest scoop on how your Electrike's progress. I'm waiting to receive a mother off of the GTS. I will ensure that the offspring has Ice Fang for you, just cuz I'm nice. In return for this Electrike, I'd like a female from the Turtwig or Piplup evolution families, please. I am giving you loads of time for you to hold up you end. See ya. Superbreeder 02:57, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
What nature and egg move do you request?--DCM((Nag at Me!Edits))

Egg Moves don't matter, just suprise me if you want, but the Piplup's Nature should raise Special Attack and lower either Defense or Speed, and the Turtwig's should raise Attack and lower either Sp. Defense or Speed. I would like you to give the Pokémon you're giving me a Heart Scale, since I had to use one to get the father to learn Ice Fang. I have 3 Electrike♂ for you to choose from based on Nature, Characteristic, and Ability, and all of them know Ice Fang and Tackle: The first one has a Rash Nature, has good perseverance, and has the Static Ability. The second one is just like the first but is alert to sounds and has Lightningrod. The third and final Electrike is Hasty, mischevious, and has Static. Let me know which one you want and your Friend Code and, once you're ready, arrange a time to meet on Wi-Fi.  Superbreeder  02:23, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

BTW, if this Electrike I'm breeding for you makes a name for itself--KOing opponents left and right--I want you to give me some credit.  Superbreeder  02:32, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
I will have the Pokemon for you by sunday. Im gonna be busy until then--DCM((Nag at Me!Edits))
I have a Brave turtwig now. I had it in my box, I got it off of GTS. if you want it its yours.
Thanks, but I need you to choose an Electrike and give me your Friend Code. If you don't know when I can meet up with you, look at my conversation with Tesh about the Slakoth. Superbreeder 00:00, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Ill try to trade you 8 AM eastern time~~
Sorry, I haven't been on in a while and I probably won't. Could you wait until I get out of Brawl and back into the main series games? Superbreeder 21:20, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Never mind that, I got back into this sooner than I anticipated. I still need your Friend Code and the Electrike you want me to trade you. Do you have a particular day you want to meet me on Wi-Fi? Superbreeder 23:01, 20 November 2008 (UTC)


Your signature must include your username in it or at lesat resemble it in someway that people would know and understand.--Tavisource 01:34, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

I fixed it, I think. Superbreeder 01:43, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Also, no images in sig anymore... ht14 02:38, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I thought mini-sprites might be a little iffy. Superbreeder 02:42, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Images and Tables

To link images you just put it like Image:xxx.png, for the Pokémon. Like if you wanted Roserade for example, you would put [[Image:407.png]] and it would come out like this: . Now as to tables, for the simplest table, you start out with this: {|border="1" style="border: 1px solid #000; border-collapse: collapse;" width=550px cellspacing="0" |- | align=center | [[Image:XXX.png]] | align=center | [[Image:XXX.png]] |} And to make a new line, put this: |-. It will look like this:


--PsychicRider 00:19, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. I'm not doing a breeding request at the moment, so I could breed something for you if you want. Don't forget to sign your comments though. Superbreeder 23:44, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh, thanks, but sadly I don't have Wi-Fi, so I can't trade over Wi-Fi. Although, if you do breed, you could save it until I do, right? --PsychicRider 00:29, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
That depends on how long I'd have to wait for you to get Wi-Fi. Either way, you can ask me for something you want me to breed for you now. Superbreeder 00:36, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I don't know, I have Wi-Fi on my computer, I just need the Wi-Fi thing for my DS. And I asked that also because I don't know what I would like. But if I do, I'll tell you. Is that okay?--PsychicRider 00:42, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
That's fine. Let me know when you're ready. Superbreeder 00:46, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Sweet. Thanks a lot and I'll let you know. --PsychicRider 00:50, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
How do you make the vertical line while you are typing? Superbreeder 01:09, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Like in front of my signature? just two "-"s like so "--". If not, then can you elaborate, please? --PsychicRider 01:24, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
This vertical line. | (I copied it). I know it divides the page a link goes to from the words you see in the link on the screen, commonly in signatures like mine. Superbreeder 01:48, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Shift + \ should give you a nice litle | symbol ^_^ - Kogoro | Talk to me | 01:50, 25 October 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. --ニョロトノ666 18:42, 4 October 2008 (UTC)


May I remind you of this? Have a look. --ニョロトノ666 02:59, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

How am I abusing the talk pages? I will stop whatever it is you need me to stop. Superbreeder 03:05, 30 October 2008 (UTC)


Could you breed me a Charmander with the move AncientPower? Thank you, I'm not that great at breeding pokemon. I don't care what the nature or anything else is. PokeSnapMaster 21:51, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, it took me so long, but yes I'll get to work on it. I'll throw in awesome extras if I can. In return for this Charmander, I'd like either an evolved or unevolved female Piplup or an evolved or unevolved female Turtwig. If you can't do either, box trash is fine, since I'll still get the Charmander's best sibling. Superbreeder 02:02, 30 January 2009 (UTC)


Please can you breed a gible for me?, when I get a copy of pokemon pearl. I might not be able to give you a rare pokemon but I will try. I'll tell you when I got pokemon pearl. I don't care how it tures out. Glitchym1 Mglitch 20:12, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

I appologize for my slow response, first of all. This shouldn't be too hard. You don't have to give me something rare, only something I can't easily get myself, like a Misdreavus. Nonetheless, you asked the right person; this Gible will be awesome. Superbreeder 01:16, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Wanted Pages & Broken links

I noticed you recently went and removed some links to pages that should exist, but don't yet. This, unfortunately, takes them off the wanted pages, which in turn, makes it so that people aren't aware that they should exist. When removing redlinks, you should think to yourself first if they are the sort of subject that deserves their own page before taking them out completely. Things like spelling mistakes are what should be removed, not links that could have potential. MaverickNate 17:02, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

My mistake. I believed those to be cases where an editor made a contribution to the article and forgot to preview to ensure that his or her links were functional before he or she saved the new edit. I'll be more careful about that from here on out. Superbreeder 17:33, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

I can't edit the Mainspace

For some reason, I have been unable to edit the mainspace (but I made a userspace edit with no problems). When I try to save an edit in the mainspace, my browser spends ten to fifteen seconds saying it's "connecting," after which it goes to a blank page (with a URL that would have meant my edit was saved). However, when I go back to the page I edited, my changes are not saved. I have tried this on multiple browsers and multiple Internet networks that have worked before, but I still can't edit. Can anyone clear up what is going on? Did I get blocked for some reason? Superbreeder 15:33, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

It randomly started working again. I was unable to edit for about two or three days, but now the problem has gone away. Superbreeder 18:09, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Correction: I can edit talk pages and my userpage, but I can't edit articles. It's really aggravating. I thought it was not a problem anymore, but its still there and keeping me from making constructive contributions to the mainspace. Superbreeder 18:16, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
