View Full Version : I missed Pokémon.
May 15th, 2012, 8:26 AM
Been playing PKMN games since I was a wee little one (like 7 or 8), took a long break for life (high school and college). I recently had a little baby boy, and been kinda stuck at home while the hubby is finishing up his degree. So, I started playing games again to pass the time, starting with Sapphire and Chrystal. A month or two ago, they both got the dreaded "can't save" error, so I got a DS Lite and HeartGold. Loved it.
I haven't played Gen 5 yet, but everything else is fun and brings back good memories. I just downloaded the RMXP trial, and have been having fun making my own game (just playing around now, but I'm planning on trying my hand at the graphics too and making an actual game).
Not sure what else to say, but I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi there, welcome to the community! Great to see another Pokéfan join c: Sounds like you've been a life-time fan, so maybe you'll want to have a look around some older generation gaming sections (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=10) where you can discuss all the old games in all their glory! Personally I think Pokemon is one of the best ways to pass the time possible, so I very much respect your life style right now haha. If you're interested in the new generation then you might want to take a look at the Black and White (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=200) section so you can get a feel for the games before playing them c: And I don't know much about game designing, but I'm sure you'll find the Game Development (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=54) and Emulation (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=156) sections a lot of fun too based on your game making project c: Make sure to read the rules and don't hesitate to contact any member of staff (that's us with the bold names!) if you have any questions, or if you'd just like to chat :) Hope to see you around tonnes!

Welcome to PC, fiOWNya! This is a great place to come and chat about pokemon or even learn things you never knew about the games. The people are friendly, and most ready to help you learn new things.
Make sure to read the rules, but otherwise have a great time while your here!
If your looking for someone to help show you around, you can visit the Adoption Center and request a Mentor. This person will show you around the forums, and even help teach you things about Pokemon or even about creating brand new games(hacks). If thats what your looking for.
As for the Gen V games, I myself LOVE Black and White! They are great games, and quite a nice change from the old 2d scroller versions.
Again, Welcome to PC! Nice to meet you :)

Haha, yep, been playing since Red/Blue came out, played the card game at school before it was popular... I believe it was even the very first electronic game I played... ever. I'll check out the Adoption Center too, as I have endless questions and I'd rather not spam up the board with them. ;)
Thank you for the welcomes everyone. :)
