I've been away from PC for about an hour, and what do I see when I refreshed the page? Everyone's been changed to Pokemon! I love this, it's fun, confusing, and hides our identities. But...why? I don't see any announcement, thread or post that explains this sudden change.
Hacks I'm working on:
Pokemon Sapphire Hoenn's Ruin - My own hack, "actively" making progress.
3rd Gen Multiplayer Project - Research and development, occasionally testing, sometimes with support.
Pokemon Ruby Destiny Broken Timeline - Mapped assigned maps. Hoping for more some time.
Pokemon Cursed/Creepy White - Group project, on hiatus for now with plans to return eventually.
Animal Crossing Wild World playing as an animal - experimental, messing with models and textures

Been super busy with work, life, and laptop problems. Hopefully I can get back into it soon, I fear I'm already rusty. Meanwhile I'm considering writing my hack as a fanfic.

It's probably because tomorrow is April Fool's day, so this is the joke for this year. Nicely done PC, I like. :D

Could this mean double posting is possible because we're all different now?

Does anyone remember Slowpoke Day?

That was hilarious lol I think it was to celebrate the Slowpoke Skin. Or maybe it was because I had that skin activated?

Could've swore it was a joke, though.

It's AFD in Australia and they deserve to enjoy the joke while it's still AFD there. PC doesn't really have an official time zone. And like any site, AFD pranks aren't really announced. That would ruin the purpose.

Maybe not for you, but a good deal of people don't live in later time zones. Why should they miss out on Pokemon madness? =p But it's always going to be late for some and early for others due to the nature of time zones.

Alternatively it isn't April fools and instead the Pokemon are throwing a revolt for making too many HM slaves out of them, sticking them unused in PCs for ages, etc. I for one welcome our new overlords.

Why would this be an April Fool's joke? We were just fed up with being human. We're on top of the latest fashion.

I find this pretty funny, but it does indeed get annoying after about ten or so minutes.

I think this one is fun, because I want to see all the different Pokemon I am!

Also I like how you can't easily identify the member unless you check their profile, a true case of anonymity lol.

This is Hikari btw.
