i come back here and find out this festival plaza doesn't have alter word in it? for shame

what is alter word? the premise is relatively simple. the first user posts a word, the next user takes that word and does one, two or three of these three things to it:

1. rearrange the letters
2. change at most one letter in the word for a different letter
3. add or remove at most one letter to/from the word

so for example, paint -> tarp is a valid move (you rearrange the letters, remove the i and change n into r)
sounds real easy, doesn't it? with that said, there's some rules (or suggestions rather) to consider.

1. please try to make your words actual words, otherwise the game becomes boring. proper nouns are fine (like, pokemon or cities or such) but otherwise make sure it's in the dictionary.
2. in accordance with festival plaza rules, i'd ask you to refrain from making posts just containing your word. for instance, try using it in a sentence or somesuch (but highlight it somehow so we know which word it is).

so with all that said, let this game START

I'll go with a more simple change—I hope you won't find it petty.

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
It's OK to feel upset about people not using their words in sentences. You did start this game, after all.

This Pokémon has too many ideas for their own good.
Gosh, did you really go through the lengths to setup that white text after your word? That’s dedication.
