Hi all... thanks for having such a cool group of resources!

I was around for the original r/b/y games. I had japanese g/s...and then... nothing. I got busy, started growing up, and then married and you know the shtick. Busy.

Then I finally played Sapphire! Always wanted to do my own game and story... now I am (specifically for some friends).

I've run into a couple of questions and I'll open a thread for that, but thanks for having me.

Greetings, waw.

You should play the 4th gen and 5th gen games. You'll see how much the game changed :D

Hope you enjoy your stay here on PokeCommunity :)

Hi waw! LilJz1234 is right. Currently Pokémon is going more revolutionary than before. But if you want to discuss about Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, you might want to check Advanced Generation Games (GBA) thread!

Hey, waw! Welcome to PokeCommunity!

If it's been awhile since you've played Pokemon, you might consider picking up one of the more recent games, such as Black or White, or even Black 2 or White 2! The fifth generation didn't leave a whole lot to be desired and are really fun to play so I highly suggest giving them a try when/if you get a chance! I bet your wife won't mind. ;) This is not to say that the older generation games are cool as well. They are! I loved RSE, if not so much for the region/Pokemon but for the characters and story. Pretty fine games, if I may say so.

As for creating your own story, we have a fine Roleplay (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18) forum if you ever want to try to make that dream come to life, and with other people to boot! Or, you could try your hand at ROM Hacking (the Emulation (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=156) forum) or Game Developing (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=54) - both of which are expansive areas of our forum so you shouldn't have a difficulty finding people to help you if you're new to the concept, and even partners to work on the project alongside you!

Welcome to PC - enjoy your stay! VM me if you ever need anything or just want to chat~

...You do like the third generation, right? ;O; I hope you do! They're pretty awesome, if I do say so myself!

Antemortem covered a lot of what you need to know for being around the community, so I'll just cover the social aspect, aka the people.

Get. to know. people. here. :D

...Sorry if that came off weird. Like, the people here are awesome, and it's so easy to make friends around here, especially the longer you stay and the more you post around, yeah? n_n Do enjoy the forums, though, and stick around!
