Do you use Discord? Do you like catching Pokémon? Have you heard of Elaria? If you answered yes to the first two, you should give it a go! Professor Tilia is always looking for new people to help fill her Living Dex!
It just so happens she is hosting an event right now, where you could even get your own Pokémon form added into the game! Details can be found over in the Elaria discord server, right here
All content from the former Roleplaying Games forum has been merged into the Writers' Workshop forum. You can find more information in this thread.
We hope to see you roleplaying away soon!
What happened to the Pokemon GO section?
Hey all! We wanted to let everyone know that the Pokemon GO section has officially been merged into the Pokemon Video Games section. You can find more information in this thread.
The Writer's Workshop is hosting an exciting event, Trainers of Fanfiction! It's a community event focused around your characters!
apparently, in sword and shield, you can forcibly change the sexes of pokemon, and it is presumably possible to do so before they even hatch (I do not currently have confirmation on the latter)
this may not be an entirely new concept (azurill --> marill in earlier generations), but it made me think about it more than I did before. I don't think this could have possibly raised more questions than it did.
I am extremely disappointed and upset at the Bulbagarden Forums staff and the behavior they have exhibited. I've come to accept that at least one of my most recent bans was warranted, but this....I get banned for an entire month due to an alleged problem which was very mildly problematic at worst, though personally, I don't consider it a problem at all. It could have been resolved by simply sending me a private message. But no. Once again I get banished from one of my very few social outlets, I get banished from being able to post during one of the most important Pokemon events in years, I get banished from the first mafia game I was a part of in years.
I've felt unappreciated on this forum for a long time. I've tried my hardest to comply with the moderator's requests, and to not be a problem to other users, while still maintaining my sense of self. It's really difficult for me to be myself sometimes. I've gotten gradually better at controlling my behavior and better understanding myself over the years, yet I still feel like people dislike me. This ban made me feel ostracized from this forum even more than usual.
The Bulbagarden staff has been well aware of my extreme emotional instability and suicidal tendencies. I already deal with a lot of issues in my life. Feeling disliked by the Bulbagarden staff and users even more than before, watching my friends post about Sword and Shield and whatever they wanted to while I couldn't, was nearly enough to push me over the edge. Quite literally. I am now aware of two bridges within 30 minutes of where I live, and I had to call the suicide hotline. I felt more suicidal than I have in a long time, and for what purpose? My close friend became so concerned about me that they tried to convey my turmoil to the staff, which they didn't seem to care about even remotely.
This blatantly callous behavior makes me sick. I was advised to keep my mouth shut when I returned, but I refuse to be a doormat. That said, I do think it's best I refrain from saying everything that deserves to be said....so this is all I will say for now.
Yes, moderators, I will not repeat the same behavior that got me banned. I hope you're happy.
Don't be surprised if you see less of me in the future.
