JOIN THE CONVERSATION!
This is the thread where new members can test the waters of what our community is like here, and maybe break the ice here. Meet fellow other new members that joined the same day or same time as you did, and also get to know other staff members and regular members here!

You are more than welcome to make your first post here, but it is highly encouraged to make your own introduction thread, so you can be welcomed personally by members here. :D We're really friendly, so don't expect us to bite or anything! Don't know how to make an intro? You can ask one of us here. :)

A few things to know before posting:
- Anyone is welcome to post here: Just because this is a "New Users" chat, does not mean it's *just* for new users. The main purpose of this thread is to take away the feeling of intimidation most new members have, and make them feel comfortable in the community. Remember, we were once new members here! So let's spread the love, yes?

- Less spam, more fun: If you're someone aiming for the "Almighty 15" (aka trying to reach 15 posts just to post images and/or links), please do not spam up 15 posts in this thread. Snivy and Megan strive to keep this thread clean, and free of mess. It is highly recommended to explore other areas of the forum, rather than just relying on this thread for post count. Also, spam is not cool.

- Exploring other areas: As this is a chit-chat thread for new members, there are other chit-chat threads for you to visit if you want to mingle with a wide variety of members around the community, as well as explore other areas of the forum.
~The Daily Chit-Chat (OC&D) (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=259955)
~Trade Corner (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=270351)

- Feeling lost? Need help?: Check out Snivy's Helpful Links & Information (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=276751) page and you'll see some important yet useful links such as quick questions thread, links to the IRC chat, PC rules section and more! Just a note - it's okay if you have just one question. If you have questions regarding the forums as a whole, you might want to post it in Quick Questions thread at the PC Community Questions & Feedback.

-Adoption Center Discussion: As the Adoption Center thread only allows 3% chit-chat (basically not allowed in the thread unless you are requesting a mentor), this thread will now allow discussion regarding the program. Current mentors and mentees are welcome to post feedback/testimonials, share stories with other mentees as well as regular members, and encouragement to future mentees who would consider applying.

ONE MORE THING before we start the party and turn up the music /is a dj All NU/W (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=276896) and the Global PokeCommunity (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=6446812) rules apply here, especially the 4-word/25 Character rule and intentional double posting.

Have fun!~

My favorite Pokemon are listed in my profile, but if I had to pick a favorite I'd say Charizard simply because I coveted that Pokemon card so much in my youth (oh, how I miss it).

Chris41279
May 13th, 2012, 02:24 PM
I used to own a GBA, GBC and regular GB. I even (ashamedly) owned a Game Gear for a bit. I didn't take to it too much, and eventually got rid of it. I now own a PSP and am working on a 2nd DS.

I think i've owned 12-13 consoles or so, let's see. This is just a quick list.
- Intelevision
- Colecovision w/ Atari Adaption Module
- NES/SNES/N64/Wii
- PS 1/2
- Bet you never heard of this one, I owned a Jaguar system
- Philips CDi (Bought from a friend, wasnt that interesting, but very realistic)
- Virtual Boy (Hated it, made me nauseous)
- Xbox 1 and currently own a 360
- Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn and Sega CD. I miss the Gen and CD! They had some great games for their time!

and that's about it.

As for Pokemon games, I've only played FR/LG, DPP and Now Black. I will eventually play White and of course B2W2.

I've also been a hardcore PC Gamer since 1997. And now MAINLY only PC Game.

I saw an NES and an SNES at the flea market today! They were 50 and 40 bucks respectively though so I didn't go for them. It would be nice to have but not for that much. I don't think they even made Pokemon games for either of those, right? Haha xD;

Chris41279
May 13th, 2012, 02:39 PM
Not that i can remember. Trying to remember when it first came out

andddddddddddddd Nope! With a quick google search, it appears they first came out on Game Boy in 1996. Still, either way! They were great back then, and are now!

And everytime i've seen an NES or SNES at the flea market or somewhere. They always want 40-50 also. I guess it's for collectible reasons or what not. I dont know

Axeliira
May 13th, 2012, 07:45 PM
^oh my god. the flea market people that sell old gaming consoles want big money for them. Like this one time, I saw a SNES, and they want it for $120. I'm like.......you gotta be kidding me. It's not even brand new. lol

I need more games for the 360 though. I have Mass Effect 2 and Call of Duty. /scours around the VG forum

Chris41279
May 13th, 2012, 08:39 PM
OMG have you tried ME3 yet????? *Droooooooool* Looks to be a FANTASTIC game!

And yea, those "Dealers" at the flea market!!! GRRRRRR! I Swear they all wanna get rich selling there junk.. I guess you gotta do what you gotta do though, right?

Cid
May 15th, 2012, 04:21 AM
Mass Effect 3! Now that's a game I want to try out someday. Not entirely a genre I prefer but it's still awesome-looking.

Right. SNES for $120? Talk about unreasonable. But I know at least someone who's got the grand (and the unforgivable need to buy an SNES) would pay for that much.

A late welcome to the forums, Chris!
You have the same nickname as I (that is, irl), although I have two first names.

Chris41279
May 15th, 2012, 09:42 AM
Thank you very much, Cid! Nice to meet you!

Chris is my real name :) I am Poke Viper on the online server.

Yea, ME3 looks great! Part 1 was phenomenal. 2 was pretty good too. Bioware usually makes good stuff, even though it seems they didnt do to well with SWTOR. But either way.

I'd never pay $120 for any old school system. I might pay $120 for a used 360 or something. But surely not a Nintendo of ANY kind! Even a Wii!

Trainer Wants to Battle!
May 15th, 2012, 10:35 AM
$120 for a SNES? That's a bit overkill....

There was a Flea Market I go to once a year, they had a few SNES's there, as well as N64's and etc. Most of them were in the $20-$50 range, and games were $2.

By the way Chris, Mass Effect 3 is well worth the money. It's a lot of fun and even quite difficult in spots, but is enjoyable the whole way through. (except the ending.)

Chris41279
May 15th, 2012, 10:45 AM
I plan on picking it up before the summer's out! I've heard TONS of great reviews on it, and the trailers i've seen make it look phenomenal!

Sector
May 15th, 2012, 12:15 PM
Well hello new members! Hope everyone is feeling welcomed they deserve in here. Definitely the friendliest forum I've participated in, and hope everyone becomes highly active :D

I just had to ask about Mass Effect 3 while we're on the flow of discussing it, they added Cooperative play to ME3 didn't they? Personally think they shouldn't had done that, but oh well. Borderlands was popular and successful so never know until we attempt it right?

I'm more of a Fallout person, then again I never really "owned" a Mass Effect game before.

Chris41279
May 15th, 2012, 01:03 PM
Hey Sector,

Yea they added Co-op stuff, but i've yet to experience it. I've seen youtube vid's and it looks pretty good.

I dont know if the multiplayer is optional or required for certain things. But i'd be fairly sure to assume that its just an optional side thing you can do. Just in case you had friends over that wanted to play or what not i guess.

Never played Fallout or Borderlands honestly. The game trailers and info i had read on them didnt sell me. I'd been pretty played out on alot of games at that time anyway.

Trainer Wants to Battle!
May 16th, 2012, 06:22 AM
The Multiplayer both is and isn't required honestly.

There is nothing forcing you to play it of course, however, to get the best endings playing multiplayer is almost required, it also makes it much easier to attain.

Personally, I haven't touched the multiplayer, and probably won't. I liked the single player aspect of ME3, and I'm afraid the co-op would ruin it for me.

Chris41279
May 16th, 2012, 09:09 AM
Yea, i have to agree. While i loved the Mass Effect line of games (As well as the KOTOR series), and the Co-op looks great! The fact is, it's meant to be our own personal story!

SNES is indeed awesome. It seems to have some of the best classics. Personally I like Super Mario RPG and Earthbound! Any particular favorites for you (or anyone else here)?

Chris41279
May 17th, 2012, 06:28 PM
When it comes to SNES - The Legend of Zelda - A link to the Past is my absolute favorite! Earthbound was a great game too! Not one of my tops, but one i reminisce about fondly!

NES I'd have to say Ultima Quest of the Avatar! Also another great game!

I love LoZ:LTTP. It is my second favourite Zelda installment beaten only by LoZ:MM for the N64. For SNES/Super Famicom I LOVE Star Ocean and Super Adventure Island. I couldn't live without those games!

May 17th, 2012, 07:17 PM
I forgot about Link to the Past! That really is a classic; I would put it above Ocarina of Time. Pardon my ignorance, but what is Star Ocean? The name is familiar, but I know I haven't played it before.

Personally, my favorite game on SNES has to be Chrono Trigger, I love that game, it was a nice change of pace from Final Fantasy on NES.

Kurui
May 17th, 2012, 07:40 PM
It is a sci-fi RPG series developed by Tri-Ace. My favourite game of all time is the second game in the series, SO: The Second Story, released on the PSX. You can tell the game is heavily influenced by Star Trek (or at least it seems so to me o.o). I am a science fiction NUT; Absolutely love mixing Sci-fi, fantasy, and roleplaying together!

farihazach
May 17th, 2012, 08:10 PM
Sounds like a pretty cool series! I checked out a summary of the games and they do seem to have similarities with Star Trek. I'm right there with you when it comes to Sci-fi stuff, especially when it comes to Star Wars and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Axeliira
May 17th, 2012, 09:34 PM
Any Super Mario game released on the SNES is my favorite. I think my all-time fave would be Super Mario World. I can't stop playing that game omg <3

You guys have really good tastes in video games. :) For the SNES, specifically! I mean, Earthbound, Super Mario RPG, A Link to the Past, Chrono Trigger and Super Mario World whoa. I personally like Yoshi's Island a lot. And also Final Fantasy III (more aptly released as Final Fantasy VI in Japan, soon also used in the GBA release). And yeah I wish I could have tried out Star Ocean when I first encountered it. Might have helped me be more familiar with sci-fi, maybe even make me a Star Trek fan like you guys.

All this talk reminds me, you guys should check out the Video Gaming (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=27) section of the forum if you haven't. Maybe some retro discussion would do it good. :D Welcome everyone.

Welcome igotpokeballz! There are some awesome forums for Hacks on PC! Glad to have you here with us!

Super Mario World is definitely a GREAT game! One of my favorites in the Mario series, aside from Super Mario Bros 3, or any of the Mario Kart games as im a huge racing fan too!

Anyone remember EXCITEBIKE? I know its olllllddd school, but it was a fun game!

Or how about Caveman Ughlympics? That was a crazy game too! Instead of Pole Vault, You'd vault over a T-Rex, and you know what happens if you miss! Or Matetoss, instead of throwing a discuss you toss your wife! LOL

Sweetness! So how about that Excitebike? I remember playing that a while ago on Animal Crossing. the game allowed you to find old-timey NES games that you could play whenever. I remember Excitebike in particular taking up a lot of my time.

Trainer Wants to Battle!
May 18th, 2012, 07:59 PM
That was one of my favorite parts of the original Animal Crossing, Wish they'd included that, or maybe some SNES or GB games in Wild World and City Folk.

and I hate to say it, but the first time I played Excitebike was on a GBA game WarioWare: Twisted, you had to turn and tilt the game boy accordingly to go faster, slower, and angle your bike. It was hard,but it was a lot of fun and an interesting 'spin' on the game.

Axeliira

THOUGH... I would like to emphasize the spam rule in the first post. I highly encourage everyone of you to explore other areas of the forum instead of just relying on post count in this thread. I haven't seen anyone break this rule as of yet (which is good! <3)

Holy jdbeiduciu EXCITEBIKE. I would like to play this game again. Brings back my childhood memories.

How's everyone been, btw? How's PC treatin' ya? (be sure to keep negative comments away from this thread, trying to keep things positive here!)

May 19th, 2012, 02:40 AM
And yea, maybe we should take the gaming topic to the Video Games forum, i think we're derailing this thread as is now.

Don't worry. I wasn't implying that at all. I usually just throw in a few links around the forum here and there in case you miss it as a newbie. You know, those scenarios where you didn't even know PC had a place like that. It's all in good intentions. You guys can talk about anything as long as the current topic allows it or if the conversation feels like it can use a new one. ;D

Back on track, I really feel bad for not giving much attention to Excitebike back then. We had that game for the NES, and I just...neglected it. Only my siblings probably indulged in it. But yeah, I do remember it being one of the microgames in WarioWare and that made me want to play it, too. I'll probably resort to sneakier ways now.

Chris41279

There's an Excitebike: World Rally on the Wii. From what i read it's 1000 points which i believe equals $10. It's side scrolling also, but just more 3D ish graphics. AND It has background music during the race, which i dont think the original Excitebike had. All you heard was the engine throttling.

That's pretty cool. For a WiiWare game, I wouldn't expect a 3D remake of a beloved game. I'll probably not resort to it unless I really wanted to play something like that because, frankly, I don't have points on the Wii. And I don't even know yet if I'll enjoy it enough to make it worth it, if I do decide to nab one.

Anyway, I'll settle with the old Excitebike. ;o;

Hi PokeGirlBel, it's a year and 2 months since I joined so yeah, after stumbling a bit I eventually got the experience for introducing new members.

And yeah, nice sig btw. Hikari liekz Oshawottz.

Hey there, Bel! And a late welcome to you. :)

I'm pretty similar to Hikari, just add three years and a pinch of inactivity and that's me. Don't follow my example, though! No not the length of stay, the inactivity! There's nothing more depressing than missing anything important that happens to people you grow to like, and maybe even the light day-to-day chatter that you could have participated in. Especially when you eventually settle in a place like this. Anyway, have you been going around? I've seen you in the SE Fanclub and I think that's great! I hope you continue to keep us company.

And I like Oshawott and Bianca, too, including her Japanese name. ;D You know, yours and Hikari's avatars complement really well, haha. I'm starting to warm up with their new looks.

On another topic since some of you mentioned AC a few posts back:
I can't wait for the Animal Crossing game currently in development for the 3DS!

That sounds like a cool idea, Andy. :D

Random fact, there are four desktop computers in the room I'm in. My mom operates a small business that offers language services, and I often get bothered to help her out. Somewhat related, I'd like to learn more about networking.

By the way, welcome to the forums, F1refly! Anime freak (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=26) all the way.
You guys like reptiles eh? I've never owned a reptile in recent memory.
Must be a chore to keep one. I'm impressed Chris owned* that many!

EDIT: @Andy: Really? That makes me feel stupid, haha. XD

Chris41279
May 19th, 2012, 05:40 AM
*Owned* would be the appropriate term.

I used to breed all sort's of morph's. So i had animals ranging from newly hatched babies up to full size breeding adults. I also bred some Crested and Leopard Gecko's (Crested's are awesome!)

That was year's ago though, and unless i get my own facility, i most likely won't own that many ever again. Saddening to think it may happen that way, because i loved each and every one of them like a child loves a puppy!

Also, it's not a chore to keep one snake. They eat 2-4 x's a month. You clean them once they go to the bathroom, and the rest of the time you are either holding them, or they are hanging out in their enclosure. They are extremely low maintenance animals as long as you keep up on them.

Hi SethGallahad! Welcome to PC. I can at least answer your first question (I'm a bit new here myself).

A thread is basically, for lack of a better description, a specific topic of interest. In the New Users/Welcome section, threads are entirely devoted to introducing yourself. To make a new thread, you can click the "New Thread" option at the top of the page. From there you can make a little introduction thing.

If that doesn't make sense, then maybe someone else can it explain better.

No thank you. We appreciate properly capitalized statements much more than that.


...I'm kidding. Welcome to the forums, Cole! You know you can make your own introduction thread. There you can describe yourself and get properly introduced to the community. Maybe the people who decide to welcome you will give great advice in getting around here, in case you're feeling intimidated or you don't know what to do. Have fun around these parts!

Hey Guys! I'm new to the forums.Pokemon FTW
Oh yeah. Our Pokémon-centric sections will be great for you. There are lots of other great places to check out, though! That is, in case you have other interests you wanna talk about, since this forum also has a really good variety of topics that are not related to the Pokémon franchise but are as interesting.

Oh and since you don't have an introduction thread of your own yet, I also suggest you make one! I hope you enjoy this place too, Mark.

Welcome, welcome, welcome everyone! I've been *quite* busy irl today so I'm just gonna say WELCOME to the members that just joined/just posted here while I was out. :D As Cid mentioned, if you haven't done an introduction thread (make a new thread in this section about yourself) you should totally do so. :D That way myself, Snivy, and other members here can welcome you personally. :)

Be sure you visit the Adoption Center if you'd like someone to give you a tour of a certain section of the community, read the rules, and see ya around! :D

We still have a discussion topic going on here rn if you like to answer! What was the first Pokemon game you played & How old were you?

We still have a discussion topic going on here rn if you like to answer! What was the first Pokemon game you played & How old were you?
First Pokémon game I played would be my older sister's Pokémon Yellow. She let me play a few times and I just walk around and smile while watching the Pikachu follow the character. But the first game I actually beat and had more memories of was Pokémon Gold. But since my brother still had Blue then I proceeded to beat Pokémon Blue afterward. The tradition of beating one of the paired versions and its third version just stuck afterwards. :P

I vaguely remember my age when I played Gold but I think it would be about six years old, around the year 2001, I think. I was exposed to the anime much earlier. Looking back, I'm pretty impressed that I didn't just stick with my starter like a childhood friend of mine did (with his Charizard, a hyper-beamin' Raticate, and a few underleveled tag-alongs). I actually had fun with it, caught as many fun-looking Pokémon as I can and kept them at the same level. I remember being really fond of my Sandslash back in Gold (I liked Blastoise from Blue way more, though).

- - -

And before I forget!

Guys, you can post more than once here (but don't double post)! That's the beauty of this place. It allows casual chat. You can discuss the topics people bring up when they come, and share interests with both old and new users alike. Sure, VMs give you that and in a limited way, introduction threads do too, but this place allows more participation, in my opinion. Plus if people make on-topic posts that interest you then, you can react to those, too. So that the conversation moves forward.

Megan already mentioned it but I'm decidedly echoing her. The Adoption Center's a really good place to start. With a personal mentor helping you around, you'll easily feel more involved in the community especially within the specific sections of your interest.

Just make sure you adequately fill out the first post's form.
Look at the first post itself, before you proceed with your mentor request.

Hey everybody!! New guy here!!
I'm glad you came here, Gliese. Again, welcome to PC! Since you brought it up in your intro thread, I have to say that astronomy is one of the best fields of science there is. It's about time human civilization went ahead and reached for the stars. Astronomy also largely involves physics, which I at least enjoy studying, personally.

Also, maybe you can add your sentiments on the current topic? ;D

I'll save the overwhelming detail for my profile (my next thing to do, before I start browsing those sections recommended to me in my intro thread) but, suffice it to say, I'm open to any questions people might have of me...well, just don't ask me what I think of controversial issues; I don't want to start any heated debates with people quite yet. xD

Marriland did something like that in his Platinum videos, he used only a Turtwig and Starly as his main battlers (both fully evolved around the third Gym) while the rest of his team were HM Slaves. The eventual Torterra and Staraptor would be joined by Azelf in the later stages of the videos.

Hiya, Aicy! Welcome to PokéCommunity! :D
No worries, I know it can be kinda awkward to get into this thread when you're new. XD

That's a really cute avatar. :3 And how your name contains meanings like that is pretty interesting (the Persian word Cyrus sounds way cooler now that I know what it means). Since I don't think you have done this yet, I suggest you make a new thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=35) that contains an introduction, though! That way, people can properly welcome you to the forum, and maybe share a few tips to get around as a newbie. We also have the Adoption Center (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=279676) which can really help you get a jump start at things.

Stick around in this hangout and chat with us! Oh and enjoy your PC stay. :)

I remember using Staraptor both in Diamond and Platinum, and it's really useful. There's no doubt about it, Starly's a cool early Bird-type. And honestly, I believe Gen IV was rather underrated even though I liked it the least. D: Now I wanna try another solo run, this time among DPPt just so I could appreciate the generation more.

Oh right, Shayminlover, I highly recommend that you play the older games in case you haven't.

Hello guys, I'm Kraiza81. I'm new and I love it here. There's so many new things to learn about Pokemon :):D There ARE a lot of things you can learn! If you want to learn something, why not go down to the Competitive Battling Center (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=234)? I'm sure you'll learn a lot battling with them.

Oh! And the TCG section (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=14) needs some activity too! Um...

If you want to learn even deeper...Emulation (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=156) is for you! However Nintendo won't spill the beans so if you want to have advanced features in your game (like follow-me), you'll have to stop by Game Development (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=54)! I'm sure Abnegation will love to have another member to the Game Dev family!

I think that the first Pokémon I caught was a Poochyena or a Wurmple.This reminds me of my Ruby file. I also caught those two Pokémon first. Although they're disappointing to many, I think they were simply fun to have on the team really. I just wish Mightyena had more of that might in him, though.

And for the first Pokémon I caught, I suppose that would be a Pidgey.
Coincidentally, my first unexpected Shiny was also a Pidgey. :D

Hello guys, I'm Kraiza81. I'm new and I love it here. There's so many new things to learn about Pokemon :)
Kraiza, I'm glad to hear that. :) I hope you stick with us for as long as you'd like!
I'm sure you'd learn much more.

Echoing what I said to Aicy, I highly recommend you make your own introduction thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=35). Just thoroughly tell us about yourself there, and really get to experience the welcoming atmosphere.

Hi.Im loving it thanks!Its also cool how he did a solo run with just two pokemon.I also thought it wasn't possible to get your pokemon fully evolved near the thrid gym.
That actually takes a lot of grinding for certain games, methinks. But yes, it is possible, and an interesting playstyle at that. I expected as much from near-solo runs (I can't recall what they call runs that use just a pair of Pokémon). :D

hi, im new here and this place looks fun from what ive been reading, if anyone can show me around, and basically help me in any possible way, it would be greatly appreciated
You need tips eh?

Well I think MidnightShine pointed you to the right direction. Just make sure you read the first post! That cannot be reiterated enough. Also, droomph posted a lot of good places to check out. It's okay to follow that even if you're not the person he was replying to, to look at other people's posts intended to help other new members since obviously, it can help you too!

Anyway, I feel like helping you more so I'll go on. Let me think.
Hmm, I suppose it's safe to say "read the rules" is overused as a tip, common sense really. So I'll mention some others.

For one, read the important threads before jumping into a specific section. Just a short check will do— after all, they're meant to put you in the right direction. So don't take the usual, easy way out and bypass them altogether. x_x Two, you can always message staff members or regular yet willing ones like us for help, we'd be glad to offer you assistance. :D Also, search a specific topic before you make it! Most of the time it's already made or answered, just don't revive month old threads. And last but most certainly not the least, just have a blast. This forum runs on happy faces, and don't worry, it's all about fun here. All that applies to wherever you want to go in this forum, so I really hope that helps you get around.

This goes for every single one of you cool dudes, being new to the forum. Dealing with newbie jitters, I feel that can be harsh at times. And if personally, you still feel scared, no worries. All of this might seem overwhelming, but really, it's not. Don't hesitate! And have a good time. :D

My first shiny was a Geodude. It was so weird, since it was unexpected. I think that I caught it with a Great Ball....it was weird.

Ah Starly is an awesome Pokemon! They're one of the most popular first birds too, haha. Does that mean you're a big fan of Sinnoh in general, or did you go back and play some older games and build up some love for them too?
I played the older games and they are awsome!

I wish I had red/blue/yellow but I don't have a original GB

I wish I had red/blue/yellow but I don't have a original GBUm...I don't think it's good of you to do this, but you can play GB games pretty easily on the computer! And since it's not, like, an Xbox game, it shouldn't take up that much space and power. :D

And Google is your friend, because linking to ROMs gets you an infraction, and possibly a ban :\ booooo so yeah. Good luck gaming!

Haha Thanks, but what is "VM"?

VM stands for Visitor Messages. They're those post-like messages that you see in people's profiles. Except that there are no limits in character nor word length there so it's the perfect place to have light-hearted chat.

To access them you can click on a person's username and then View Public Profile. In his or her profile, if VMs are enabled, you can see a dialog box where you can type in a message. If it's seen by the recipient, that person will post a VM on your profile as a reply. It's an easy way to get to know people, really. :D

Hey guys, first post. Been enjoying reading some of the threads and learning some new things. :)
Welcome to the forums, DLL! So happy you're enjoying yourself. I've done something like that before I joined, lurking around a few threads and reading up on posts to learn stuff. But now that you have an account, it gets even better. It wouldn't hurt to have your own introduction thread right here in NU/W, by the way. Just make a new thread, describe yourself and get welcomed by people! Maybe meet a new friend or two. :)

My favorite Pokemon are listed in my profile, but if I had to pick a favorite I'd say Charizard simply because I coveted that Pokemon card so much in my youth (oh, how I miss it).

Hey CarcharOdin, Im new here and I accually love charizard as well and this is pretty hard to believe, but I got my first original charizard card from the base set on my second booster pack!!!! No lie honest to god, Anyways nice to meet you and I just wanted to throw that out there since you mentioned charizard :0

@Requility
Thanks! As to why I joined: well always loved all the Pokemon games, and sometimes when I looked up something about them, I'd see the poke community site. I recently became interested in rom hacking, because I like playing new Pokemon games. Unfortunatly my computer stopped working the day after I made an account, so im using my iPad. I'll hopefully be on more when it's fixed.
And hahaha, sorry, no stabbing dragons with ice. I just couldn't think of a good name, so I put ice because it's my favorite type and dragon is second. By the way, do you know how I can change my name?

@Hikari
Well your two pics made me laugh :) So this one and the Polls.

And I'm not sure how to make a quote, because the 'quote message in reply' is faded... Is there another way?

Forever
June 18th, 2012, 04:45 AM
Oh right I see! You definitely should've joined sooner if you've been seeing this forum for ages. XD; But yes hopefully you are on more, and you find more interests here than rom hacking! And I see. Fighting is my favourite since it's just generally amazing in most situations and the fighting types are generally some of the strongest physical attackers in each tiers, ice is an okay type but dragon? I like them but I could certainly live without them. :x

As for changing your name, unfortunately you can't :( I was a test and eventually I'll go back to my older username (well, from what I've been told) but sadly you'll be stuck with Ice-Dragon forever or until we get a better server. Oh and for a quote, click the word "quote" down the bottom of each person's post on the right hand side. :3

Hello Guys, Unclekillington here.

I signed up a few days ago but haven't had much time to participate in the discussions on the forum due to my exams, which are nearly at an end!!!!

Anyways, I am very, very new to Wifi battles despite playing Pokemon since its release through Red and Blue Version.

Anyways, I am a student and it is going to hopefully stay that way for another 3 years as I am hoping to be off to University in September. So in the mean time, I hope to make myself welcome on these forums, make some friends along the way and hopefully get a few wifi battles done with you guys over the course of the summer.

Oh and if anyone has a Growlithe that they'd be willing to trade, please alert me. It is my ALL TIME favourite pokemon and I have been killing to find one, to no luck of course. Sorry that was very sad of me :P

Anyways, Hopefully I will not annoy you guys to much,

Ask there (also specify which generation you want!) and be sure to list what you want to offer for the Growlithe. There's also numerous shops there where they *might* offer Growlithe. :)

Whoops, I didnt mean dragon is my second favorite, I ment Ice is stong against it. And yeah I could live with out them too.
There are a lot of bad Ice Pokemon so I only like some of them.
I always have a few fighting moves in my team. My favorite Fighting type Pokemon is Mienshao, what's yours?

Also the 'quote' isn't their, maybe only on computers?

Also click on http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14869443/simple/buttons/quote.gif or [QUOTE] (depending on the style you're using) on the bottom right corner of the post. That'll quote the member's post and reply to it. :)
