    [​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

      Sorry to bother you, but how does one display an image in their about me section? I have been trying to do so, but it hasn't quite worked out the way I have wanted it. It keeps making it so you have to click an attachment to view the image.
      I would like it to be more like yours with the picture there and already able to be viewed without doing much more.
      1. Teapot

        You’ll want to upload it somewhere and use [IMG] tags - if you right click an attachment and copy the URL, you can put it inside the tags so it’ll appear :)

      Hey Teapot, I have an Idea for an addition to the site. A pokemon status wheel. So when you try to poison an opponent, you get a fair chance, and not a opponent who wants to win.

        It's not likely that I'd try and poison another character at all unless it was specifically to move the plot along – in RP, poisoning a Pokémon would be a pretty awful thing, and likely to end the battle there and then and require immediate medical attention. It's not something I'd try and force onto another character just in the course of a normal battle.
        Oct 10, 2017
      4. Teapot
        Teapot
        Ultimately, in-RP dice roll systems are a way to keep players honest – but I'd expect that level of honesty from all our role players as a bare minimum. If someone is constantly forcing hits/status effects, never allowing their characters to be hit, and is otherwise being cheap and godmoding... well, that's against the rules, and we'd want to stop it anyway.
        Oct 10, 2017
      5. Teapot
        Teapot
        But I can certainly see how they'd have their uses! Running a battle RP by dice roll could make for some interesting, varied situations – having the dice determine whether you get hit or not, and how badly could be interesting to read. So it's not something I'd consider an urgent or pressing requirement, but I can absolutely see the benefits. Something to think about for the future, I think. :)

        I just looked in the database, it does look to me like you have 63 followers. Just to be sure, I followed/unfollowed you to force a recount and it's still saying 63, so I'm not sure what the discrepancy is. I'll dig a bit deeper.

      I have a question, just to make sure of something. If you're doing a RP in a conversation, surely you're allowed to change the rules and use Legendaries and stuff without getting permission, right? Because it's private.
      1. Teapot

        Yes. We can’t see or moderate private conversations, so people tend to RP their own way in them.

      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
        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.

      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.)

        It shows below your forum posts on tablets/desktop. :) It's probably better to just use your About Me, really.

      How much does the Pokecharms Layout change when you're a moderator? Just curious!

        Almost not at all. We have an extra bar at the top for some administrative tools (like the moderation queue and a button to view reports), but otherwise it's early identical save for a couple of extra buttons.

      I am making a story for Kanto, so i want to give Team rocket grunts Guns as well as pokemon, Is that ok? Also in that story how would i have Gengar Evolve since he is a trade evolution?

        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.
