[edit] é

This probably isn't the right place to ask, but how exactly do you make the é character? I've always just been copy-pasting from the character map, which is really annoying. I noticed that in edit summary for Pokemon, "Alt+130" was mentioned. What exactly is "130"? I feel like a total idiot for holding down Alt, 1, 3, and 0. Hagurumon 00:32, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Yes, this IS the wrong place to ask but... now, this is only possible on Windows. When you hold down alt and press 1, 3, and 0, then release, you should get an é. Bluebry 00:35, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Specifically, on the number pad, to the right of the arrow keys. --DorianGray 00:36, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Oh, I see. I was using the ones above the letters. Hagurumon 00:37, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
If you didn't know how tho make a é, how'd you put one in the title? Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:38, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] cheatachu

could we re-name this "Cheatachu"? All of pikachu's apperences relate to the cheat.

Might be confusing with the existing redirect of cheatachu72. --DorianGray 21:01, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] I choose you, Dijjery-Doo!

In Strong Bad's most recent tweet, Strong Bad tweets "I caught a wild Dijjery-doo! #mariopainta". Some editors think that this is a reference to Pokemon; some editors think it is just a generic tweet. I think that it's a reference to Pokemon, and more specifically because Pokemon Go. Pokemon Go is a huge thing right now. It's no secret that Pokemon Go is huuuuge right now, so it makes sense that TBC would post a relevant tweet on SBA's Twitter... because relevancy. Some say the text in the tweet a "generic phrase" and that it could mean anything. However, considering that TBC have posted a topical tweet before, it wouldn't be out of the ordinary if it was directly referencing Pokemon Go. Also, "X caught a wild Y" is a very very common phrase in Pokemon. - Catjaz63 06:12, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

That's certainly what I think of when I see that. The Brothers Chaps might not put pop-culture-relevant stuff in cartoons (mostly), but they do that kind of thing all the time in Strong Bad's Twitter. I'm willing to say it's a reference. Lira (talk) 14:07, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
I know literally nothing about Pokémon, but I think Strong Bad's new Cheatball tweet might've been a reference. If this is correct, the Dijjery-doo reference is pretty much confirmed. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:32, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Oh yeah. It's absolutely confirmed by now. I'll probably add the reference back tomorrow if nobody else has by then. Need to sleep now... zzz... Lira (talk) 04:48, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Rename

Not all of the references relate to Pikachu, so I say rename to Pokémon. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 18:56, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Good idea. Maybe we could have a separate section for Pikachu... although that might be unnecessary. But yeah, rename to Pokémon. Lira (talk) 19:16, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
