    Default What Pokémon-related things do you NOT use Bulbagarden for?

    Hey guys,

    In an effort to improve our service to you, we're wondering what you aren't using Bulbagarden for. EDIT: I suppose it's worth adding that I want you to click stuff that you'd like us to do better, not just stuff you have no interest in doing. I probably wasn't clear about that with my original post. After voting, feel free to add additional comments by posting so that we can know more specifically what we're lacking. If there's anything I forgot to include in the poll, please feel free to post about it.

    If you have any questions, I'm always available by PM.

    i do NOT use BMG for fan stuff like fanfiction and fan art.
    but i dont look anywhere for that stuff as it doesnt inteest me at all anyway.

    i DO use BMG for pretty much anything Pokemon related though.

    the only advise i have is i think that news coverage could be a tad faster. i read things on other sites sometimes before i read them here. the delay can range anywhere from 10 mins to a day+.

    I tend to use it for anything I really need in my games... anime I often try to find info here, but if I can't then I go find the episode itself somewhere.

    Fanfics... if I ever wrote anything I'd not be able to do it here. We needs the Library back.

    If what evkl means by FAQ's is walkthroughs, strategy guides, etc. then either that is something that needs to be worked on, or i'm looking in all the wrong places...
    Send me a PM if you want help with an RMT or TeamBuilding (i reserve the right to refuse assistance at my discretion)

    It's not that I don't use Bulbagarden for most of this stuff listed here, it's just that I use Bulbagarden with a combination of other sites. I use here and smogon for competitive battling and Serebii to help with the episodes.

    The only things I don't use Bulbagarden for are fan art and the non-video game information.

    Competitive battling stuff, mostly.

    As much as I love browsing Smogon while the Bulbasaur are doing their business over here, it'd be pretty awesome to have this place more... battle-y.

    Otherwise, I use Bulbagarden for pretty much all of my Pokémon related things- don't need walkthroughs for Pokémon games seeing as it's so straightforward (lol finally learned all the kana AFTER beating my JP Platinum :( )

    I don't use it for shipping, I am not sure I even understand shipping. I kinda understand the concept of it, but no idea how to go about shipping anything.

    I don't use it for TCG as I never really play it or collect much cards anymore and I don't collect any figures so I don't use this for TFG

    I never use it for TCG or TFG stuff, and definitely not not competitive battling advice!

    i'd advise against trying to do much with competitive battling on this site; smogon has that market cornered and any attempt to top them will likely be embarrassing.

    not that im bashing Smogon, but, im not a fan of their fanbase.
    as for competitive strats, i usually make my own. thats what Pokemon is all about isnt it? having all the moves laid out on one page with our nice pretty tables, and being able to jump to other pages on a whim is nice. im not a fan of someone telling me how i should train my guys.

    What I use Bulbagarden for:
    strategies (like MAGNEDETH, I develop my own, unless somebody is a pro with a certain Pokémon, then I ask them)
    shippings (bull)
    news (I've got better, more exclusive sites)
    tcg-related crap (don't care)

    I do use it for sprites and game info sometimes (but this is about what I don't use it for...).

    I use BG for anime and games only. Ships, TCG and Stragety/walkthrough guides I never look at.

    Movesets. I use Serebii and Smogon for them - Smogon to get an idea, Serebii to see how I can get some of the movesets in question. Serebii's 'dex is a bit more useful and easier to use for that than Bulbapedia, imo. Otherwise, I use Bulba pretty exclusively.
