Welcome to Bulbapedia, TRGrunt!

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.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon 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.
  • 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! ~Kenn 15:21, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Card Images

Please don't upload images that have a site's stamp on them. Doing so could get Bulbagarden in trouble with the site whose stamp is on the image.

Additionally, the image you uploaded was too large to be suitable for the article you tried to insert it in. Try asking Politoed666 for TCG image advice for better sizes. --Shiningpikablu252 15:50, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Understood loud and clear ^_^ --TRGrunt 13:30, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Registeel & Artisan Cave

Don't insert false information like that again. ~Kenn 17:21, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

WTF?? Then my cartridge must be hacked or something, cuz I'm not joking... TRGrunt 13:43, 11 March 2008 (UTC)TRGrunt


Please don't remove messages for no reason. If you don't want to see them, archive them by placing them on a seperate page in your namespace. Tina δ 22:59, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

  • SIGH* Uh huh...It's just that I'm not very proud of the stuff above...And btw how did you make your signature? I mean with the sprite of Kirlia and everything? ~~TRGrunt
Hang on a second, I'll type up a quick guide.. any specific colors or Pokémon you want on it? Tina δ 23:08, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, Alakazam would be nice...you can pick the colors. And thank you for helping me out, really...I was starting to think that I should just delete my account... ~~TRGrunt
Okay. So, go to 'my preferences' and copy-paste the following code into the Nickname field, making sure that Raw signatures is turned on.

[[User:TRGrunt|TRGrunt]]<sup>[[User talk:TRGrunt|Talk]]</sup>

It should look like this.. TRGruntTalk
Just a quick simple one. Nice and short code, as well.. Tina δ 23:15, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
First test... TRGrunt
If you sign off with ~~~~, it should come up. Tina δ23:25, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
(Trying again)...Yup, it's working now. TRGruntTalk 23:29, 25 March 2008 (UTC)


Hey there, uploading the images seemed good to me. Don't worry about your past edits too much, although you have to use a bit of common sense for that kind of thing. Well, so far so good. ~ kenn Talk 14:28, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Signature Policy

By the way, there's a new signature policy in effect. Basically, we can't use sprite images in our signatures and some other things. Jioruji Derako is currently the administrator who's dealing with people's signatures. You better take a look here.

Your signature will be okay without the Alakazam sprite: TRGruntTalk

[[User:TRGrunt|TRGrunt]]<sup>[[User talk:TRGrunt|Talk]]</sup>

Something like that. ~ kenn Talk 15:06, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use the link templates when linking to Pokémon articles and other stuff. For example, {{p|Spoink}} instead of [[Spoink]]. This way, you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full course on how link templates work, look at the shortlinks. --Shiningpikablu252 16:52, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
