Hmm... from the posts so far, 6pm EST looks okay for the start time, which is 3pm by the wiki's clock. (A bit early for west-coasters, but hopefully enough people will stick around for a bit.)

I can show up at about 3:00 for a few seconds, but then I'm going to have to get home somehow, so I'll miss about half an hour or so of the conversation.

I'm sicky so I'll be online, but most likely won't get to be too active. In minor news, my entire family is sick.

Delibird Line

Morphs [Oak Catalog #]

  • Delibird [#225]

Physical Description

Slightly less then a meter tall, Delibird is penguin Pokemon covered in red plumage. Upon its head is tufts of white feathers that form a "beard" that extends over its chest and forms "eyebrows". the most notable aspect of Delibird's appearance is that it looks like Santa Claus.

Notable Biology

As mentioned, Delibird resembles the well known folklore character, Santa Claus. Some folklorists say that the image of Santa Claus is in fact, based off Delibird. However, there's no evidence to point to this. It's tail that resembles a sack is, in fact, hollow. With an opening on the Delibirds side. Delibird uses this sack to store food. Researchers have found that the interior of the tail contains an antibacterial substance as well as several preservatives. Food that has been inside a Delibirds sack is perfectly safe to eat.

There is a second, smaller pocket within the tail that generates a natural grenade. These become voltile after exposure to sunlight, and will explode if thrown.

As an Ice type Pokemon, Delibird possesses cyrokentic capabilities. However they are lesser then other ice type Pokemon.

Behavior

Delibirds are well known for their habit of, if they have any spare food, giving it to any being they encounter. Researchers believe this behavior is made to discourage predation. After all, a predator will prefer to go for the easier meal rather then risk a fight. This instinct is so hardwired into a Delibird that even when a Trainer uses it in battle there is a good chance that a Delibird will present its opponent with food. Delibirds can easily be trained to be used a delivery Pokemon, transporting small packages up to fifty miles. Delibird are so well known for their behavior that a saying in Johto exists, "As generous as a Delibird." The Pokemon appears on many Christmas specials, as an assistant to Santa Claus, or Santa himself portrayed as a Delibird (usually in Funny Pokemon cartoons)

Habitat

Delibird live mostly in the northern mountains of Johto, nesting along the side of cliffs. Small colonies of them have been sighted in Sinnoh, however.

Diet

Delibirds diet primarily consists of fish Pokemon like Goldeen and Magikarp, they fish in two ways, depending on whether or not they are near a river or lake. In rivers they make a "dam" out of ice to capture fish, gathering them in their tail at their pleasure. In lakes, they prefer a more direct approach. Using one of their explosives, they throw it into a school of fish. The resulting explosion stuns them for easy capture.

They also enjoy sweets, and will eagerly consume any berries and other candies given to them. They also enjoy cookies. (Trainers note: Do not give your Delibird too much junk food, unless you want it to be fat like Santa)

Hazards

Delibird are rather docile Pokemon, in the event of a threat their first response is to throw food at it. While the predator eats the "gift" the Delibird will run away. Generally the only time that a Delibird will attack is when eggs and children are in danger. In such a case one parents will use Icy Wind attacks to slow down the predator, while the other carries away the chicks. If this fails, the Delibird will start using Ice Ball in an attempt to actively injure the predator. Finally, in the event that the threat just will not retreat, it starts using its supply of explosives. These are roughly as powerful as a fragmentation grenade, and will severely injure any Pokemon not a Rock or Steel type.

Courting and Childrearing

Once a Delibird reaches maturity, it begins its search for a mate. Both males and females attempt to woo each other. When searching for a mate, Delibirds will stuff their tail as full as possible, showcasing their ability to gather food to any prospective mates. Once a pair has been formed, Delibird mate for life. The male and female taking turns between watching the nest and gathering food.

Social Structure

Delibird live in loose colonies, generally a Delibird will know several "neighbors" that it can rely on. In the event of an injury, its neighbors will assist in taking care of the nest until the injured Delibird recovers. In the event of a death, the nest will be "adopted" by a more well off family until the widowed Delibird can find a new mate.

Since there are problems with the frontend, i think it'd be easier for those who can, connect via a Jabber or similar IM application (such as Pidgin or Coccinella). Here is a post with overall instructions for Pidgin, should work with any other client (translating for the names of menus and such), just be careful with the "Ú". You can PM me (perhaps some other, too) for instructions if you are using a multiplatform client, as I can test them pretty much immediately.

For those amoongus who don't want to install, Portable Apps has a portable Pidgin, I think other portable clients as well.

Could you describe your install, Saturn (by PM if possible)? Have you managed to follow the instructions for Pidgin and have stumbled in a particular point? Would like to help.

I was making an account in the Pidgin client and I picked the Protocol called XMPP. I clicked to Add Chat and I followed all the steps and it said there was no room called pokedex.
