From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
April 1, 2006 was an April Fools' Day that fell on a Saturday.
Pokémon-related hoaxes this year included:
SPP stands for Super Princess Peach
A black-on-black color scheme
A fairly predictable joke that recurs each April Fools' Day is an aesthetic change:
- SPP expanded its initials as Super Princess Peach.
- Pokécommunity set the default color scheme to black-on-black.
- Bulbapedia set the interface for logged-in users to Finnish, then later, Japanese.
- Pokémon Emerald MA imitates the new, 'girl-oriented' Slashdot look, OMG!!! Ponies!!, including the pink color scheme.
- Psypoke celebrated Seizure Awareness Day, with a new banner and bright new flashing color scheme. The forums were also modified to have a similar flashing-color effect within each table cell on the index page.
"Hmm... she's trying to kill it? But I want that honor."
- pkmn.net set up the profanity filter on their forums to change various common words:
- Poké → Digi
- Ash → Soot
- Egg → Infant
- Disable → Hypnosis
- Member → Peasant
- Admin → Base jumper
- Left ↔ Right
- Up ↔ Down
- pkmn.net also announced that Celebi was obtainable in Pokémon Emerald.
- #pocketmonsters released a parody translation of AG160.
