First off Greetings from the Evergreen State.

I have been a Pokémon fan since it came out in the USA back in 1998, its been the only cartoon I have actually continue to watch to today, and I love the new episodes too.

I had been searching some of the other forums Pokémon forums but didn't seem to exciting. This one caught my attention right away. Hoping on creating some new PokéFriends around here.

Short intro of myself:


26 years old from my joining day - May 21st 2012.
My first name is Daniel. My family is from Mexico, but I was born in Anaheim CA.
I was born on Friday the 13th.
I love cats so generally my favorite Pokémon are cats too.
I speak fluent English and Spanish, thanks to Pokémon I'm learning Japanese.
I'm also a huge football (soccer in USA) fan (my favorite team is my local team, Seattle Sounders FC)
Besides Pokemon and Cat items, I also collect flags of the world (and national anthems, paper money/coins, postcards, other memorabilia too)
Music and Movies: I prefer Rock/metal music, and Comedy, Horror, and Animated.
Every time I play any Pokémon game Meowth/Persian always have to be part of my team
.... once I get to think of more I add them.

Added:


Pokémon Leaf Green and Pokémon Sapphire are the games I play the most, just started playing Pokémon Black version - Purrloin is in that version
I also am a huge fan of Sim City 4
I play a lot Hoyle Board Games, Hoyle Card Games, and Hoyle Casino Games



Anime I prefer Team Rocket Trio over Ash and friends. My #1 favorite Pokémon (also in user name) is Persian.


Thanks for taking time to read my intro.

Hi Persian, nice to meet you.

That's one multitude of information there, especially being born on Friday the 13th made me crack up!

So, you liek Persianz? I think I know a certain user who shares that trait with you. That user is Elite Overlord LeSabre™. (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=66456)

So, what section of the forum are you looking forward to seeing on your journey? You should try Other Trivia and Pokemon Trivia, I am literally all over those two sections.

Pokemon Clubs is also one to check out, there's a Pokemon club for everyone.

Anyways, here's a few things about me:

Oh yeah, you say PokéCommunity seemed exciting for you! Well here's some good news: it definitely is! Prepare to get blown away. ;D

Welcome to the forums, Dan! It's awesome that you still watch the anime (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=15) after all these years, I sure wish I never got left out from the newer ones. I find it hard to catch up. Lucky you. Anyway, you'll meet a lot of friendly people here so you don't have to worry if you want to make a lot of friends. Just play nice and by the rules (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=6446812), and of course, be yourself. Try to make it a habit to go to this place and post around, when you can, so we don't have to sorely miss you for not being active.

So you love cats! More of a dog person here but cats are also cool to have. By any chance, is that attraction linked to being born on Friday the 13th? Haha. It's also cool that you're bilingual, get your Japanese going and you'll be even more impressive! And there are many football enthusiasts here, especially if you walk past the Pokémon topics and check out some sections way down there. Neat preferences for culture & media, too, maybe you can check our section of it (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29) out.

Oh and take up Hikari's advice and contact a staff member (users with bold usernames) if you need any help! :)

It's a mighty good intro, if I do say so myself. So it's my pleasure to read it. See you around the forums, Dan.

The only thing with my birthday, I couldn't believe it either until I looked it up. December 1985. I'm not superstitious or anything, but always funny to mention always captures certain peoples attention at first. One final mention, my next friday the 13th birthday will be in 2013!


Thanks for the welcome, I'm still exploring the forums slowly.

New trainer? Let's battle! *battle music turns on*
I'm just joking :P

Anyways, welcome to PC! Once you get 100+ posts, you can "claim" your Persian and Meowth in the Claim Thread! Pokémon is helping you learn Japanese? If that only happened to me...

Hi Persian! Hope you enjoy yourself here and develop some relationships. I was a little timid here at first too, but then I found some friends and its been smooth sailing ever since. If you ever need to talk just shoot me a VM, or consult a mod. Above all, have fun!

That would be me xD

Yes, Persian is by far my favorite Pokemon it has been since R/B, and right now I'm steamed that apparently it won't be in B2/W2.

Well, following in tradition:
•I'm age 86 if you believe my profile; otherwise it's a secret.
•My first name's also a secret. Born in Korea, but raised in New York State (but not NYC). However, I do consider North/South Carolina my actual home since I spent the best years of my life (college) there.
•I was born three days before Halloween. Which is awesome in its own way.
•My favorite animals are also cats, but sadly I'm allergic to most any animal.
•English is the only language I speak fluently. I took Spanish in high school but that was years ago and I've forgotten much of it. I've only picked up a few Japanese words courtesy of anime.
•Favorite sport is American Football. Favorite team is the Carolina Panthers since they were my home team for my years in college. Shame they suck now.
•I collect maps, free stuff they give out at hotels, anime merchandise, and old car literature.
•Music and Movies: I listen to mostly 80's and early 90's music. I don't watch much in the way outside of anime, except for crime shows like America's Most Wanted.
•I use Persian in any game where it's available and I improvise with another cat Pokemon when it's not. For Platinum I traded over a Meowth egg so it could be on my team and I may be forced to do the same for B2/W2.

I never liked the anime and gave up on it at the start of Johto. Didn't like the twerp trio, and certainly didn't like the fact that Meowth was cast as the villain instead of the main character's Pokemon.

Anyway, this is a great forum to be a part of. We're all friendly here and we have varied topics on all things Pokemon - and many things not Pokemon too, for a change of pace. Hope you enjoy your stay on our site!

Can't wait to capture Persian & then the battle starts!! Pokémon is not teaching me, it inspired me to learn Japanese, and that will be extremely challenging since I'm already fluent in English and Spanish.
