Now, I know nobody usually cares about these things, but I feel obligated to include it. Feel free to skip to the sections below (not that I could stop you anyway).
I've been a part of the online Pokémon fandom since 2007, when I joined the Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden forums; however, I was a Pokémon fan long before that. It wasn't until late 2009 when I joined Bulbapedia, at which point I started by editing parts of Project GlitchDex. The first article I edited was list of glitch moves, because I saw that there were glitch Pokémon missing from the learnlists that were listed to learn those glitch moves on their own pages. I then ended up going through all the glitch Pokémon articles and updating them into the newest style. I eventually began to edit other articles outside of that region, and now I'm an all-round editor (although I focus on the Pokémon games). I ended up splitting the minor glitches section of glitch into its own article, list of minor glitches, because it was getting edited so much and getting quite long. Now I maintain it, and it remains a very comprehensive source for glitches in all Pokémon games. Having said that, I have plans for it in the future. Also regarding glitches, due to the new method of obtaining glitch Pokémon, the Johto guard glitch, there is still a huge need of glitch Pokémon articles, and restorations of articles deleted back in late 2009 needing cleanup to change them from being cheat-only to available. There is also the still-under-research remaining HP glitch, which should allow the remaining Generation I glitch Pokémon to be obtained. Now I lead Project GlitchDex, and am currently bogged down in work related to it.
I like writing articles about little-known Pokémon games, such as Pokémon mini games, Sega Pico and Beena games (like Pokémon Advanced Generation: I've Begun Hiragana and Katakana!), Perdue farms games (like Pokémon Team Rocket Blast Off), and PokéPark: Fishing Rally DS. If I mentioned a game (or group of games) you've never heard of, then I am very happy that I was able to show you it.
I was promoted to temporary Junior Admin during the Japanese release of Pokémon Black and White to help with updating pages during the lockdown. After the lock was lifted, my powers became permanent, and I became a true Junior Administrator. In early January, I found that I was trusted on the Archives as well, and had been given Junior Administrator rights. In March, I was promoted to Admin on Bulbapedia, then on the Archives too shortly after. Less than a week after my Archives promotion, I was given as staff position on Bulbanews during the staff restructure—Writer. In early May, I was appointed Project GlitchDex Leader (after applying for it). In September 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Adminstrator on the Archives. In November 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Writer on Bulbanews. In December 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Administrator on Bulbapedia, making me a Bulbawiki Senior Citizen, a self-coined term, and apparently shared with Bikini Miltank. In April 2012, I was promoted to member of the Bulbanews board of editors.
Also, I quite often participate in NIWA. I'm active on the forums, and have an account at every member site. I am even a Lead Editor on Nookipedia. Also, those interwiki redirects, like Pit and Peach, are my doing. I encourage all editors to link to NIWA members over Wikipedia where applicable.
I'm SnorlaxMonster in the Dream World, on server 3. You can find more info on making targeted Dream Pal requests here. In fact, I'm SnorlaxMonster pretty much everywhere, so you should recognize me easily.
If you want to talk to me casually (non-wiki stuff) or in private you can send me a PM on the forums, or send me an email. If you think I have done something wrong, I appreciate civil constructive criticism. I would rather have friends than enemies, but I also like a good friendly debate. I always try to assume good faith, perhaps even too often.
- I hate ampersands (&). I think they look ugly and avoid using them outside of titles that already have them.
- I cannot stand acronym and initialisms written with periods between the letters but not after the final letter. I don't know where people get the idea that this is correct, but this is my absolute biggest pet peeve. If you don't know how to use the periods, don't use them at all—they are not compulsory.
Articles needing attention
All wild Shiny Pokémon I have ever encountered (obviously discounting red Gyarados) have been in the Safari Zone. Not only that, but the only Safari Zone that I haven't encountered a Shiny in is the Great Marsh, which isn't even a real Safari Zone.
Also, I encountered that Exeggcute with 1 Safari Ball left. I threw it, but it escaped and I was kicked out.
Also, I have a Shiny Gyarados clone from my friend who caught it as a Magikarp in Sapphire. That is why I was hoping that the guaranteed red Gyarados would have some kind of difference to other Shiny ones, but it didn't.
