Welcome to Bulbapedia, The IceCream!

By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Big changes

Hey there! Please understand that if you want to make a change that's going to affect a lot of pages, you need to get permission from a staff member first. Thanks! Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 13:37, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Also, if you want to edit multiple sections of the page, make sure that you click "edit this page" at the top of the page rather than editing it by section. Thanks! --Den Zen 15:36, 5 August 2017 (UTC)


Hey there! I noticed your signature on ‎Talk:List of glitches in Generation VI seemed a little weird: it was labeled GMT instead of UTC like every other signature on Bulbapedia, and the time value was a minute off from the time your edit was saved. This implies to me that you manually typed it out instead of letting our software do it for you — are you aware that you can just type ~~~~ to produce a signature?

  • Hello Pumpkinking0192. I labeled GMT because I thought it was what time zone the writer was writing from. I wasn't sure about it being a signature across Bulbapedia. Also, I was not aware of the code that I could put on the end. Thank you for clarifying this.

Userspace limits

Hello. I have noticed that you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently, and have made a total of 4+ userspace edits today. Please do not edit the userspace any more, as the userspace policy limits the amount you can edit your userpage: No more than three edits per day (by UTC), and you must contribute to the mainspace more than you edit your user page(s). This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our servers. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal page(s). The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your user page(s). Thank you. --ForceFire 12:09, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know. I have only created my user page today and I'm just getting used to it. I just wasn't sure. Cheers for letting me know. The IceCream (talk) 12:13, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Welcoming messages

I noticed your recent activities of welcomg new users. Just giving you a heads up that there is a {{subst:welcome}} template in the character palette below. You may wish to use this shortcut instead of having to type it out manually. Thanks. — Ruixiang95 10:24, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

Cheers Ice Cream 11:09, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
Please only welcome users who has made at least one edit. — Ruixiang95 16:12, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
I see. Well that would make sense I guess. Oops. Ice Cream 17:04, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Melmetal and Meltan

Add something in the trivia section:

For Melmetal: Melmetal and its pre-evolution are the only Mythical Pokémon that are part of an evolutionary line.
For Meltan: Meltan and its evolution are the only Mythical Pokémon that are part of an evolutionary line.

I can't. I'm not an admin. Only admins can edit the page. Ice Cream 16:04, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
