I am new here. My name Is Zaki and I have been a Bulbagardener for over a year. I figured I'd check this place out too.

Hai there fellow Aussie! Welcome to PC!
I was at Bulbagarden as well, but I never took liking to the site so I left to join PC. While we are still a big forum, we have loads of differences from Bulbagarden like staff members who know how to do their job, and also loads of friendly people here. Any particular sections you're interested in? I know that the X & Y section is getting loads of activity given the latest CoroCoro scans leaked. I think a good place to start would be Pokemon Clubs (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=24) where you can discuss topics about the Pokemon the club is themed around. Joining clubs can be a fun way to make friends.
We even have some fun off-topic sections too like Chit Chat & Polls (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=23) which is popular among loads of members here (other than Emulation & ROM Hacking of course, which is the most popular section here) so I'm sure you'll find something you'll like. If you ever need help don't hesitate to ask a moderator and they should be able to help you. I'm always happy to meet new members, so if you wanna talk just leave me a visitor message.
Have fun at PC!

Oh hey, I'm on Bulbagarden too. Just not as often as PC since I'm especially hooked on this place; it's wonderful here! Bulba has its own charm though and the 'pedia is the best resource ever for Pokemon fans. Glad to see you're checking PC out as well - wonderful choice! :) Welcome!
I'm sure you know the ins and outs of a forum like this since you have experience, but PC's forum layout is pretty different from BMGf's. There aren't as many categories and it's a bit easier to browse around (in my eyes, at least). Is there any particular reason you joined us here ooor do you just want to involve yourself in another Pokemon forum? Hopefully this place catches your eye and you end up being a regular here too as it's more than worth it. You can discuss all the generations including X and Y plus other popular aspects like the anime and even clubs, which Hikari has already linked you to. That's one of the differences between Bulbagarden and here.. methinks they don't have clubs over there since social groups take their place. Our Pokemon Clubs and Forum Clubs & Groups boards are wonderful ways to test the waters of the community and find others who have things in common with you. n~n
Seems like you're already looking around and making some posts so keep on checking back and hope you have lots of fun! Feel free to ask any forum-related questions in the Questions & Feedback (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4) board or contact the staff. I'm always around to point you in the right direction if need be.. or just be your friend if you're looking for a chat. We're all friendly and want to ensure you have a fantastic stay on PC. See you around, Zaki!

Hello Zaki, welcome to PC! I'm an Aussie too, my name is Mark, I'm 17 and from Sydney! I've been to Newcastle before but only passing through, I think we drove past this huge sex shop/sexpo warehouse? Hahaha, weirdos :P I saw on your profile that you said you were autistic, I've heard people with autism are often very focused and have a specific hobby or interest that they are very passionate about, what's yours if you have one and don't mind sharing? :)
I like going to Bulbapedia for information on anything to do with Pokemon but have never visited their forums unfortunately, PokeCommunity is the only place for me! ^_^ Everybody here is very friendly and there's heaps of forums for discussion of a range of Pokemon and non-pokemon topics so there's always something interesting to talk about, be check everything out!
I hope you have a good time here Zaki :)
-O07_eleven Sydian said signing your name at the bottom of a post annoyed her on a CC&P thread so I'm going to stop doing it. Maybe ;)

Hey Zaki, I too am from s'Traya I live south of you and north of @O07_Eleven. Welcome, enjoy your stay if your into something like I was when I joined which was rom hacking you might want to check those places out but you will find more areas are even better than the reason you joined which is a +1 of this place. See you around
