    [​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

        Sure! Go into the Creative Corner, then click the "Create New Work" button. Make sure you read through all the rules that appear, then scroll down and click the "Create Art" button. The rest should be fairly self-explanatory – put in a title, click the big "Upload Your Art" button to insert files, and then write a description in the box – once you're happy with it, click "Create Art". :)

      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.

        I say that if it's an NPC (i.e. not one of your "player" characters) and a sufficiently major villain that is treated as some kind of a raid boss here, that should be fine. But yeah, I'd like some more details re: this. As Teapot here said - start a private conversation and we can work this out ^^

      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.

      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 :'|

        It's nice that they all have meanings! Far too few people think about that ^^ I must admit, I'd find them a little hard to remember myself – they're quite complicated names, lots of recurring "ix" sounds and names with no similarities to English, which helps jog the memory – but that's not a deal-breaker, just my thoughts ^^

        But yeah, the lack of brush styles, layers, powerful selection tools, etc. all make MS Paint a vastly inferior art program to those like Paint Tool Sai/Photoshop/FireAlpaca/Krita/etc., but that doesn't mean you can't make it work for you! Just play around and see what you can do, and I'm sure you'll be able to make something decent~

        Hm? I've seen other staff members refer to you as "Him" or "He", and at the bottom of the site there's that "Charmed Designs" thing. I don't know who made it but I assumed it was you since the person was from Leeds and I remember reading that you did do website design thingies.

      Someone named cat1234 started a roleplay called "Kalos Adventure". He said no legendaries without his permission. So can you go check it out?

        Sure thing. In future, can you click the "Report" button on the post? It makes it easier for us to find the post in question, and lets all staff see it. Thank you!

        Oh there's a report button, I'll make sure to use it next time I'm very sorry.

        No problem. Also, remember the minimodding rule – do not yell at other people for breaking the rules – hit that report button, and we'll do whatever needs doing. Otherwise, you'll just end up flaming people – and if you've got it wrong and they haven't broken the rules, that's really not nice for anyone. Makes sense? :)
