Hello, and welcome to Outside the Box!

What is this section about?
This section is best as a forum that is meant to hold any miscellaneous threads that don’t have any better place elsewhere. You’ll find a range of different topics here, from the latest news happening around us, to your favorite hobbies and pastimes are all acceptable topics that may be found here.

What is the best way to start?
If you’re new to the section and don’t know where to start, why not take a look at some of our biggest threads in the section? Otherwise, the best thing to do is to jump right into the action and join an active discussion, or create your own! This section is quite large, and there are a lot of existing threads already, so before you make your own topic, it is encouraged that you do a quick search to make sure a title does not already exist.
I am interested, but have questions!
We have staff members in this section who would be more than happy to assist you with anything you need, whether you have a question about a specific topic, or the section as a whole, do not hesitate to ask!

Hi hi hi! I'm Pikochu, one of your moderators for Outside the Box! And yes, I am fully aware that my username is misspelled. The name "Pikachu" has been taken and I have been called "Piko" by one of my close friends, hence why my username is "Pikochu." I have been a member since October 2013 and I have joined the Bulbagarden staff around March 2018!

I'm born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and I graduated college with a Physics Degree. I'm currently a software engineer for a tech company in Silicon Valley. My main interests are Physics, Chemistry, piano, driving, math and drinking lots of boba (it has become a common gag around these parts of the forums).

I always enjoy meeting and chatting with new people! If you have any questions, comments, concerns, mutual interests or just wanna talk, feel free to leave a post on my profile, send me a private message or message me on Discord (Info can be found below all of my posts)!

Hi there! I'm beryllium (feel free to call me "beryl" or "berry" for short... and yes, I am named after the element), and I'm a mod here! I've been a member of Bulbagarden since August 2, 2023, and became staff on October 29 of the same year.
I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and I am a full-time high school student at the time this was written. I'm a huge Pokémon fan, of course, but I also really love the Ace Attorney, Persona, and Danganronpa series, along with just about every fighting game out there! I also enjoy doodling, watching anime, and participating in a touch of creative writing in my free time ^^
If you have any questions about anything here, or you just want to talk with me (I love meeting people and getting to know them!), feel free to shoot me a PM, write a message on my profile, or find me on Discord as the user "freeeeesia" (that's 5 e's!). Thank you for reading, and have a great day!
