    [​IMG]

    Hi! i'm Emily, and I'm an administrator here at Pokécharms. I help run the site, build new features, and fix things when they go awry. In real life, I'm a programmer from England, and aside from Pokémon, I'm fond of other Nintendo games (like Metroid), FPS games, movies, and anime.

    My favourite Pokémon is Porygon-Z, but I’m also fond of the “derp trifecta” – Dunsparce, Bidoof, and Stunfisk. In-game, I like filling my Pokédex and occasionally breeding competitive teams – but I’m not very good at battling!

    Feel free to ask me anything – I’m here to help!

    Many thanks to Kimiko Nobuko for my current avatar
    About Me Image by @StellarWind Elsydeon - thank you!

      U- umm... just a bit of a significant question before doing something rather urgent... *woosh woosh*

      S- so... umm... if I want to change my username here, do I need to use the new username to log in, or is it still going to be the same with the original username? *woosh woosh woosh*

      Also, since I'm a bit cur- curious... I wonder why name changes have to be approved... *woosh*
      1. Teapot

        Your name will change everywhere, so you’ll have to log in and be tagged with the new name, as if you’d registered it originally.

        Name changes have to be approved so users don’t change their name to something silly or offensive – or, for example, to stop people having their name changed to something “clever” by a “funny” friend on their computer.

        I may not be entirely understanding the question, so my apologies if I don't quite answer right, but the views counter shows how many people looked at the work. :) It's very unscientific and easy to fool, so don't rely on it for anything. Did that answer your question properly? :)

        I'm afraid I don't know how to help you then, sorry. :( The sizes you're working with are bigger than needed for professional printing - you absolutely do not need that sort of resolution for online. DeviantART resized your image to just under 10% of the original and it's still perfectly clear, so resizing yours to 2048px, twice that of DA, would be absolutely fine.

      *a Shoutmon can be seen taking some strange medicine in hopes of curing a rather funny virus he has*

      Well, since I might be planning on doing a Digimon and Pokémon crossover RP... I was wondering if it should go in general RPing or Pokémon RPing. since there's both Digimon and Pokémon content involved in the RP. (Namely the setting, characters, plot, etc.)
      1. Teapot

        A quick idea, which Ive had a few friends do, is have some kind of emotional distress with the Pokemon. One theory is that Trade Evolution is triggered because the Pokemon is experiencing emotional distress from bing traded and tries to become stronger so that the trainer takes them back.

        My friend would create a falling out between trainer and Pokemon, and the Pokemon would evolve to try and solve the problem and make his trainer happy again.

      Is it alright if we have a Houndoom mega evolve for the purpose of trying to beat us? It's in the Pokemon Coliseum RP. A baddie is using a Houndoom, and wants to evolve it to beat all of our characters and to take all of their Pokemon. Is that alright? Wasn't sure if we needed Admin approval before we have a Mega Evolved Pokemon, but just wanted to make sure.

But yeah, I'd like some more details re: this. As Teapot here said - start a private conversation and we can work this out ^^

      Is it fine to show guns in an artwork? I'm not drawing it very detailed though.

      Hey, I was thinking of making a kiss, kill, marry game thread. It'd be like this: one person posts three names of characters or celebrities and a picture of each, then the next person posts who they'd theoretically kiss, kill, and marry out of the three options and gives three more. I don't know if I need permission or not, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

        Just post it – it goes into the moderation queue so I can check it over before it goes up :)

      So Pokemon Go Fest was a complete disaster, will you or another Admin be reporting on this?

        I doubt it, it's not really the sort of news we report in general – especially given we haven't mentioned GO in months.

      Hey Teapot, I need help. So My friend was ignoring me while I was making a convo and inviting him to it. Later we found out that he was accidentally ignoring me and wasn't in the convo even though he was invited. So when I try to invite him again, nothing happens, he still wasn't in for some reason, We think it has to do with how he ignored me, but we're not sure, and we're hoping you could help us out :'|

      Sorry, I keep asking you these questions XD but why is there a Trophy called Cry, Sem, Cry? XD I just got it, and noticed Sem was a Charmer who used to be a moderator (I'm guessing). So why is it called that?

        @Pretty Pichu If I can remember correctly, pretty much just be really active, don't break any rules, be a good contributor to the community, and be nice to people. Although never ask to be a mod, if the mods want to make you a mod they will approach you! :)
