Unless stated otherwise, my edits are my own thoughts and not reflective of the opinion of the administration as a whole; if I am utilizing administrative authority (which I typically avoid doing), I will indicate as such. If I make an edit or talk page comment that you disagree with, I encourage you to challenge me on it (although I'm notoriously bad at keeping up-to-date on my talk page). Note that this only applies to me and has no implications on how other staff members utilize their authority.


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. Since then, that list grew to such a proportion that I split it into lists of glitches by generation. Now I lead Project GlitchDex, and know of a lot of glitches that need to be documented here that aren't that I keep meaning to get around to. I do a lot of different things around the wiki though.

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, which also resulted in me getting moderator powers in the Bulbanews forum on the forums. In June 2012, I was promoted to member of the Archives Advisory Council. In August 2012, I was promoted to a Bureaucrat on Bulbapedia, so now I have to learn how to spell it.

Also, I occasionally participate in NIWA. I occasionally visit the dead forums, and have an account at every member site (as well as some prospective members such as Game & Watch Wiki). I am even a patroller on Zelda Wiki and Nookipedia. Also, those interwiki redirects for SSB characters, like Pit and Peach, are my doing. I encourage all editors to link to NIWA members over Wikipedia where applicable. I am Bulbapedia's NIWA representative, so if you have anything related to NIWA you want done, let me know.

I'm SnorlaxMonster on YouTube, Twitter... in fact, I'm SnorlaxMonster pretty much everywhere, so you should recognize me easily. I also use ShapelessMonstrosity sometimes (typically on non-Pokémon sites, and I'm far more active on YouTube as ShapelessMonstrosity).

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 try to always assume good faith, perhaps a little too often.

Pet peeves

  • 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.

Useful tools for wiki editing

  • Wikipedia - never underestimate the uses of Wikipedia
  • AutoWikiBrowser - excellent external semi-automated editor, great for mass edits
  • Wayback Machine - one of the most invaluable wiki editing tools, it allows you to access old versions of webpages or sites that aren't even online anymore
  • - on-demand archives, for pages you expect to go down that Wayback Machine hasn't captured
  • Text Mechanic - a bunch of text manipulation tools that are great for edits involving replacing text or templates
  • Diff checker - compares two pieces of text without requiring you to save an edit
  • Down for everyone or just me? - checks if websites are down (use in combination with Wayback Machine)
  • Bitwise calculator - for when you're working with bitwise commands (only glitches and data structure research is likely to need this)
  • ISBN converter - for converting between ISBN-10 and ISBN-13 (adds "978-" to the start of ISBN-10); also checks if ISBN has a valid checksum and inserts hyphens (use in combination with Special:BookSources)
  • Binary, hexadecimal, and octal converter - not so useful for wiki work, but I guess it can come in handy for User talk:BulbaBot

Image tools

  • PNG optimizer - if an image's filesize is too big to be uploaded to the Archives
  • PNG lossy compression - if an image's filesize is too big to be uploaded to the Archives (use only if the optimizer does not make it small enough)
  • Image error analysis - use to check if images have been edited ("Photoshopped"), but note that it can only show you that an image is likely edited; there are methods of editing images so that it cannot detect the edits

Shiny stories

All wild Shiny Pokémon I encountered prior to Gen VI (obviously discounting red Gyarados) have been in the Safari Zone (since there's no Safari Zone in Gen VI). Not only that, but the only Safari Zone that I haven't encountered a Shiny in is the Great Marsh, which is the only one not named "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.

Furthermore, I now have a Shiny Red-Striped Basculin in Y, because a friend of mine declared it too ugly and would have otherwise released it.
