I use Bulbapedia WAY more than Facebook. I genuinely think I'm obsessed with it. Sometimes I just go there for fun when I don't even have things to look up, and just surf through all the TMs certain Pokémon can learn. It's relaxing. :3

I like to read the talk pages. You can see how completely serious they are about EVERYTHING, even more serious than Wikipedia, haha.

    I don't visit Bulbapedia all that much, probably because I never bothered with competitive battling. Same goes to the respective battling/trading PC sections. Don't look for discussion there as well, the ones held here do it for me.

    Basically, I visit bulbapedia whenever I need a bit of info about a certain pokemon/item/character/location, and that's about it.

    That's pretty much what most people do in Bulbapedia, CJ. You don't need to be interested to competitive battling in order to visit bulbapedia. I myself visited it a lot of times when I wasn't interested in battling yet. That was back when I wanted to know more about the Pokemon themselves, not just their stats or their moves.

    I think PokeCommunity's Bulbapedia page needs a bit of an update, tbh. It's really outdated. I use Bulbapedia as more of a way to learn anything about Pokemon, not just battling. (Although it has a lot about that).

      If your into competetive battling smogon is the go anyway. I just use it for ingame things like evolution, locations and movesets. Looking at the pokecommunity page it says we have no mascot. How come? Who would be the mascot if you could choose one?

        Mm, fair enough. I just thought it may be the reason why others visit more often.

        I wouldn't choose one. And thank God it's not pikachu. I dunno, it just doesn't fit to have a mascot, especially with so many different themes going around.

        If we don't have a catch phrase and we are still working on it, then we are still working on a mascot xD. Lets get some Stunfisk if anything, it's just too winning. It's already got an awesome style so just make it the mascot.

        Leaf from FR/LG, of course.

        Nah, we don't need a mascot Pokemon. That would be playing favorites, and we already know Game Freak already soes that with a certain rodent... I like us without a mascot, it shows we're equal-opportunity fans. Or something like that.

        We also have a Ralts theme, Yellow and the bros. theme, Red theme, Misty theme, Plusle theme, Green theme, Team Magma theme, Quilava theme, Ash theme, Dialga and Palkia theme, Ampharos theme, Delibird theme, Sentret theme, Conway theme, Pichu theme, Team Rocket theme, Dahlia theme, Herdier theme, and a Masquerain and another Pokemon I forgot theme. So if we're basing mascots on PC's styles, whose to say they can't be all PC's mascot? There might be more though, but my brain hurts just thinking about these. ;~;

        I simple don't think PC ever needs a mascot. PC is fine, and has been fine, without a mascot. Wouldn't you think that people should've complained by now if having a mascot is such a big deal that if PC doesn't has one, it has to be fixed? Mascots doesn't define a forum.

        I quite agree with the equality idea. All Pokémon are our mascots.

          Yeah, I doubt we need a mascot. I feel as if Stunfisk is our unofficial mascot however, with all of the database errors.

          I don't think so. Almost everyone considers a DBE as a "derp" moment, therefore Stunfisk perfectly fits in the role of welcoming one in case a database error happens. :3

          D: I've never seen the Stunfisk database error screen. I bet it's hilarious and I'm missing out.

          . . . Is it just me or does this thing look evil? I think it actually HAS been causing the database errors. D8

          Looks more mischievous then evil per say. And when I do see Derpfish errors it tends to take away from my "Oh my gosh when will this get back up" feeling.

          I think Stunfisk has been fired from its role as the dbe Pokemon, well at least for the last one we had.

          I think of Cherrim as our unofficial mascot tbh.

          No, no, no. Someone just installed cloudflare to PC.

          And my previous statement stands for itself. PC doesn't need a mascot, official or unofficial, that's why it's called the PokeCommunity forums, not the CohagrigusCommunity forums. :/

          If it's unofficial, you can't help it whether it's necessary or not. That's why it's called unofficial. :p
          In any case I don't really think of any Pokémon as a PC mascot, but it's just some are more often mentioned because they're awesome. :3 Cherrim is one of these because Cherrim pie is a wonderful delicacy.
