BMGf: A New User's Guide
Hello, and welcome to Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden's Forums, or BMGf! This is a Pokémon-based community where you can discuss Pokémon-related subjects, among other things.
Before you do anything, it's heavily recommended that you take a look at the community rules. Breaking the rules leads to warnings and infractions, which in turn can ban you from the forums. Afterwards, why not create a thread right here, in the Garden Grotto, to introduce yourself to the community? It's the easiest way to make new friends and familiarize yourself to the posting style of the forum.
From here on out... everything else is fair game.
- Discuss the Pokémon games in Video Games.
- Pokémon World is home to discussion about the world of Pokémon, and Pokémon's impact in our world.
- The Pokémon Anime has its own forums, and shippers can discuss their favorites ships and more in the Shipper's Paradise.
- Organize battles and trades with other members, and get your team rated.
- Socialize with other members, or debate political matters and discuss the wonders of the Real World. Japanese entertainment takes center stage in the Land of the Rising Sun, and discussion on video games, TV shows, comics and more takes place in Entertainment, Inc..
- Create your own character and engage in roleplays, enjoy some simple fun and games with your fellow members, or tackle a few more strategic games over in the War Room.
- Show off artwork, read and post fanfiction, or display your music and video talents.
Confused? Don't be shy! Ask questions at the Help Desk, or feel free to contact a moderator, super moderator, or administrator to discuss any issues in private. You can find a list of the staff here.
The Hitchhiker's Guide on BMGf provides a lot of in-depth detail and advice on the various different parts of the forum, all in the perspective of one of our own members. Meanwhile, our guide on Proper Posting Etiquette shares some tips on making contributory comments and posts.
Click the report button to report a post that you feel breaks the community rules - don't try to address it yourself.

And finally, remember that there are various limits imposed on signatures, so get your signature checked here.
Thank you for joining our community - we hope you stick around and have a great time!
