View Full Version : Yo!

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum, so I guess its "tradition" (or maybe rules) to make a post in this part :psy copy:
Anyways, I'm currently playing Pokemon Black 2 again, and in the midst of making my post-game team for PWT and Battle Subway and Online Play and all that, I was like "I should join a pokemon forum!" So here I am!
I've been playing pokemon since co-playing Gold with my older brother back in like 2004, so Johto is my favorite gen, definitely. Since Johto I've always had atleast one version of every game (Gold, Ruby, Fire Red, Pearl [and platinum since my Pearl became corrupted], Black, and Black 2) except, ironically, I haven't had the Johto remakes. I'd really like to have them though, because I miss Gold :p
My favorite pokemon is probably gonna be Bellossom, it just has a lot of nostalgia-factor to me since it was my strongest pokemon in Ruby, which was the first game I played with no help. I really miss it too (No oddish to evolve it from in Black or Black 2 :( )
Aside from Pokemon and other video games, I'm an avid fan of the webcomic Homestuck and sci-fi show Doctor Who, and am constantly on Tumblr, usually blogging about those things :P
I'm looking forward to forum-ing with everyone!

Hello Aradiamara and welcome to PC!
Nice avatar you have, I think the Homestuck characters are so awesome and I'm definitely looking forward to getting to know more about you. I noticed your fave Pokemon is Bellossom, so I bet you're going to get along well with one of my best friends here, Lady Gunner who also loves Homestuck and Bellossom. And I really should check out your Tumblr page sometime, since I have one I use often as well.
Since I heard you're playing Black 2 a good place to start would be the Fifth Generation Gaming (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=200) section which has some fun Black 2 and White 2 topics. I still love 5th Gen despite all the X & Y hype, mainly because 5th Gen introduced my fave ever Pokemon. And I also heard you're a Doctor Who fan, do you have a fave Doctor from the series? Well if you love both that and Homestuck a lot I might recommend the Homestuck Club (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=294052) and Doctor Who Club (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=297882) both in Fan Clubs & Groups, a section Lady Gunner frequents a lot.
Anyways, I'm sure you'll have an awesome time at PC. Remember to read the rules or contact a moderator if you need help such as Cirno, our mod of this section here. I'm looking forward to getting to know you!

A friendly message
thanks! I'll make sure to check out those fanclubs. Yeah I love 5th Gen too. I guess I've never disliked a gen ever though.
In Doctor Who my favorite is the tenth doctor, because I do watch New Who, but I have seen the first episode with the first doctor and would watch more if it were easier to find online or something :P

Gold brings back so many memories. My friend had Pokemon Stadium 2 ages back so I'd try to come over to her house often to do that Mystery Gift feature. It was so much fun. :) Welcome to PC, Aradiamara!
If you're into the second generation, check out Metal & Color Gaming (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=36) as well! That's the place to discuss R/B/Y and G/S/C and any big fans' opinions are appreciated. Crystal is one of my most-played games for challenges too, on top of Emerald. People who love Pokemon as a whole are super cool in my book since it's just such a good franchise. I've owned a game from every generation myself.. and for many gens I owned all the available versions! Never had a game become corrupt though, that really stinks. :( But luckily your others work fine! I'm surprised my super old games like Crystal still function properly, bahaha. Sadly I don't have a GBC/GBA to play it on since my brother just had to lose my SP. If you really miss Gold, luckily there's always emulators, right?
And aieee, Bellossom is so so cute! She is one of my favorite grass types and I can't help but adore her little HG/SS sprite. Get those remakes so you can use her! Who can say no!? Grass types are the bomb in general. Look at that adorable lil sprite:
Never saw Doctor Who though, but if you're a fan of TV shows then you're certainly going to love General Entertainment (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29)! Not only can you discuss TV shows there, but it's also home to movie, anime, music, and book discussions. Great place for pretty much everyone because of how diverse a board it is and it's also staffed by a very great guy, so I totally recommend it. :D I'm not on Tumblr (well, I have an account but I never really use it except to search through images others have uploaded) but I do have a Twitter, so if you're around there I'll be sure to follow you. Looking forward to having you involve yourself with our community in general, however, as you seem like quite a chill person. Let me or another staff member know if you need help, but alternatively you can post in the Questions & Feedback (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4) board as well.

Hi there, Aradiamara (nice username) and welcome to PokeCommunity! :D It's a great place to post about all your favourite Pokemon games from each generation, have some fun in Pokemon Trivia, join a club, show your work in Creative Discussions or simply just chat with some friends!
Pokemon Black 2 is a great game! I'm currently playing it myself. I'm about to defeat the Elite Four, actually! I haven't played Gold or Silver yet, but will soon enough. The Supercard DS2 (https://modchipsaustralia.com/Supercard-DSTwo-DS2.html) is in the mail right now, so I'll be able to play every Pokemon game from the main series, not to mention Mystery Dungeon. ^ ^
Feel free to ask any moderators for help, they're all a very friendly bunch. Hope you have fun here!
