Hello my names Desbrina, or Des for short.
I've been playing Pokemon since Red/Blue/Yellow came out (yellow was my first) and i'm still enjoying it all these years later (though not so much the anime)
I've come across this site many times before but decided to join now

Hello, welcome :) I'm the same, still enjoying it now since I was 11 (I'm 21 now).

I agree with you about the anime -- Diamond & Pearl is really rubbish. Though I must say, Best Wishes seems much improved.

I'm 22 now. I first remeber watching the first episode of pokemon when i was younger, though i only watched that series then stopped, though i still like the movies, especially the second one

Hi, and welcome to PC! You sound pretty similar to me. I also got hooked with Pokemon from first gen (Blue was my first game) and I've also lost interest in watching the anime.
And it's a great time to join - with B/W now released, activity should be picking up. I'm getting White this weekend if all goes as planned, so I'm looking forward to that - more for the adventure rather than the new Pokemon - chances are I'll fall back on my old favorites eventually.
Take some time to look around our site... we have lots of discussion topics about nearly every aspect of Pokemon, as well as quite a few about other subjects if you feel like a change of pace. We've also got many friendly members here so be sure to get to know the locals.... and if you need any help, or want to be friends, just ask! Have fun on our site!

It's always good to join after lurking for a while. That's what I did when I first joined. Okay I lied, I just saw the site and joined pretty much instantly, but I do that now with other sites when I want to join. Just sit in a dark corner and lurk like a ninja, but it's good that you came out of that corner and became active somewhat and joined! It's always like that, and for that, I'm gonna welcome you here! :D
I've been into the Pokemon games since Gold and Silver, with Gold being my first Pokemon game ever. I loved it and it was amazing back then. I mean some part were confusing back then, like whether Bugsy is a guy or a girl, but I eventually figured that out. I remember back then when I was taught how to do the cloning glitch or something, and believing that having the Shiny Gyarados and a Regular Gyarados would have a 1/8 chance of producing a Gold Magikarp in the day care center. It was a stupid rumor, but I believed it. DX I also remember using a glitch to get all the starters for yourself to use, although they wouldn't be recorded in the Pokedex, which sucks. x(
Dont forget to bring a towel! read the rules!

Welcome Desbrina! Your name is very pretty! Yeah, I still have Red/Blue/Yellow! I don't have the good ol' Gameboy though. Did you get Black/White? I got it the day it came out. Gamestop was packed! But it didn't help that one of the registers were out. It is a really fun game, but it's a big change from the old games. Yeah, usually I lurk around before I join. But once I saw this place I instantly joined. I was looking for a Pokemon forum for like EVER and this place looked really cool. Anyway, I'll see you around the forums, maybe we can VM or PM sometime too.

I never play those games :P. But anyway welcome and read the rules. If you need help message me or is you wanna be friends you can request me. Hopefully I'll see you around.
