When I woke up I thought to myself " Gesh I wonder how people found out about pc?" So it came to my attention to post a thread about it.
I found out about PC on google I was searching for rom-hacks.(That was in my n00b time)
How did you find out?

My case was something like that, too. I was looking for a Silver/Gold remake, I think, and saw a link to MasterMew's hack. That's how I found PC.

Same here! But I was looking for a completely fanmade game (not specified to be about Pokemon) on a MEGAMAN website. Some guy was saying how you could fit Megaman EXE sprites into a Pokemon game with a few edits on each side, and gave a link to Pokemon Legends (I think that was it) as an example. I got bored with the gaming section since none of those games ever get finished, but immediately fell in love with fanfiction. And well... here I am now!

Well, I was a Pokemon fan then, still am now. 2 years ago I was searching, "Pokemon Forums" and PC was the first to pop up.

I remember loading the FG's Legenderies skin as the default and I had never seen this type of forum software before(vBulletin) and I immediately fell in love with it and decided to join. Here I am 2 years later and only 1335 posts lol.

In my case, FG's Legendaries was the default, too. And I'm using it until now.

I just felt lonely at the time so I decided I wanted to find somewhere to talk to people. I guess I just thought of pokemon and typed pokemon forums into google and PC was the first to pop up =P

The first time, I don't remember how I found the site. It's been over five years, after all and I thought absolutely nothing special of a little Ikonboard shared by a few Pokémon sites. I think I might've found it through Kwesi's old site, The UD, though. :B

The second time, after it became a vBulletin, Cas referred me. She said she had a fanclub, which I'd never even heard of at the time, so I wandered over and noticed the slogan was almost the exact same as the forum I'd joined earlier in the year. So, naturally, I signed up again and voila, I've been wasting my life away a member here ever since!

I kept seeing links to PC in peoples' signatures on another forum a few years back. So, one day when I was feeling bored and thinking that I could possibly use another site on which to post, I decided to actually follow one of those links and see what this place was like.

...

Obviously I ended up liking it, or I wouldn't be here right now. :x I did find it to be an extremely nice place to do what I liked doing at the time - that is, posting sprites and artwork of mine - though that wasn't the only reason why I signed up.

I think I was searching for Pokemon Ruby walkthroughs because I was stuck, story of my PC-finding life. 8D Quite odd. 'Cause who knew I'd be here nearly two years on. XDD

After joining two other forums dedicated to Pokemon, I found that I liked talking to people through forums. I headed up to my trusty Google search bar, typed in "Pokemon forums" and PC came up. I signed up, and that was that.

I joined back in 2005 when I couldn't get my Emerald ROM to save. XD; I had known of PC for a long while prior due to another forum I was on (for Digimon, ironically) because JA (Jedi_Amara) had asked all of us to join and vote for her for president, so..

I'm glad I joined. I've made some of my best friends because of PC (mainly because of the chat, but as of late I've been meeting a lot of people on the forums as well. :3)

A friend of mine (Imari) showed me a fanclub one day, and I was like "what's this forum? :O". After awhile, I *think* she asked me to join the Ash fanclub (back when we were both fans), and I joined to post there. I was curious about this forum, though; I did explore my first day. :3 Then... I kind of forgot about it for awhile. XD;; Then I came back when SPPF made me mad and I haven't really left since (except when I can't get on too often).

I googled "Pokemon Ruby Cheats" I found a thread that led me to PC. The skin was FG Legends, I think when I signed up. I then signed up and instantly became addicted, and here I am, 2 years later.

There are some really odd ones there. And some pretty interesting ways of how you found PC.

During the olden days of my forum life, back when I was on my first serebiiforums account, a member Toto kept talking about this place. I decided to visit but when Phantom Bugsy joined, this got me determined to join too.
Now Toto is long gone from sppf and goes under a very different username now (Imari iirc) and is no longer crazy about Ash. (kinda sad, I find people who love their characters so much interesting)

One day when I was bored, I really wanted to know if they were making a GSC re-make, so I google searched "Pokemon Gold version re-make" and it came up with zel's Pokemon ShinyGold thread. I thought I should check it out, but I had no idea ROMHacking existed. I wanted to download the attachement, but I found out that you had to join to do that, so I just closed the browser.
Few days later, I decided I should join up simply to download the game. I did so, and I found myself with an IPS patch file, and one thought to mind: "What the hell do I do with this?" XD Incidentally, I posted my question in the ShinyGold thread, and after having been answered, it got considered as SPAM and got deleted. Heh, my first post at PC got deleted. Isn't that sad? XD
I later found myself posting in the ShinyGold thread, and actually reserved myself there for about a month, then I finally started expanding and posting many places, including the MCG section and the OC forums.

Now, I'm much more active then I ever planned to be. Ironically, I hardly ever play ROMhacks anymore. XD

After SPPF got boring, I decided to join PC to see what it was like. That's about it.

I was looking for the fangame "Pokemon: Call of Latios" (Those from 2005 should remember this as the most looked forwarded to fangame ever). Of course, now the database of the maker has crashed and he has to start all over again.

A great friend of mine(Imari aka Toto) told me about this forum, when SPPf made me a little mad. And she showed me a club she made here. Which was "The Ash Fan Club" and I posted there. While I was here, everything looked so relaxed. And everyone were so nice. You don't get ignored and it is a little funner here. I haven't been in SPPf recently. I been going but as for right now, I don't go there as much as I used to(They need a new server. It is very hard to go there now. It is so slow.)

But when I googled for Episode Requests, I saw PC and I thought if pe2k has a link to it, it should be virus free then joinage~ xD

I just kinda woke up out of bed one day, and was all like "Hey..You know what would be really cool? If I complately avoided all social contact today, and went online to find a random pokemon forum to join." XD

To be honest, I found this site while at a friends house on his computer. from there I just kinda went home and looked up the page, to harass him about his interests, then reallized "Dude..this kicks ass."

So yeah..that's when I had started signing on xD

I remember I was browsing Pokedexes across different sites; I must have found a link to here from one, and at the time I was looking for a Pokemon Forum.
I had a look at the Boards; thought they looked pretty respectable, and really liked the Wireless Trade Center, and then I joined :]

When I joined here I'd been a member at other Pokemon forums like PE2k and Smogon for a while. I knew about this forum then, but just never decided to join. But since it seemed to be such a big forum and a lot of Pokemon fans knew it, I eventually joined. Never got very active though. I sometimes go months without posting.
