lol 'friad I was going to move it?

Umm... well, I can't remember what I searched for on Google, but I stumbled upon it in December or so. I looked at a lot of posts, mainly ones by Sugarangel and thought "I wish I could be a part of the like that...she's so popular. I'd never stand out like that.".

When Pokmon Ruby and Sapphire had been out for a while, I remembered the site andhow much I loved it's design and members, so I joined.

I think I was initially linked to the old PC from PE2K back in December and I registered instantly...ahh, back in the days that PE2K was still an affiliate

k i was never part of the "old days" where PE2K is actually one of our affilates... now it *sounds* like our "enemy"...

i found this through researching stuff on how to use mIRC. I found this website thingie that talks about how to use mIRC (and #free_pokemon most importantly), but i still don't get it (and i still don't get it even til now). The website says that you can post your concerns/questions about free_pokemon in this forum. Clicked on the link, and voila!

I think I was using a search egine(sp?) on Pokemon and the site was there and I just read everything for most of that time, because my keyboard was broken. But some how I managed to copy AND PASTE my wmail addy onto the registration form and I was a member since then, January 4, 2003. (a member with a still broken keyboard...)

My brother, pika12 was an unactive member on the old PC, and one day I saw him browsing this site, and I was like "Why aren't you posting?" I hated lurkers at that time. >_> So, I joined to have sorta a race with him to see who gets more posts. I won, of course. =P

But after I joined I found out that the people here were very nice, and I just didn't want to leave, so I stayed. n_n

That's my story. =D

it's funny really
i was really pitiful at poke-knowledge, even though i mastered R/S in like a month i wanted more, to help those who needed it and to be helped by my superiors.
i kept on seeing a mudkip in pictures with Ash and co so i immediately thought it was brock's (since Satoshi and Haruka already had starters).
I searched "Brock's Mudkip" on Google, looked at a couple of sites, then what's this: Pokemon Community^_^?
Ever since then i bother my friends who like pokemon to join PC, not for the points but so they can see how fun it is ;) .

When Cas closed Pikasurf Forums, she directed me here, and now that she's banned me from her forum, I guess I'm stuck here. :rambo:

I couldn't remember for awhile, but I remember that I saw someone mentioning a Pokemon community at the Animenation Pokemon forums, but I didn't know the url. So, I kept entering urls into the address box and I finally found it. I was a lurker for awhile before I actually started posting XD.

I was a member in PE2K. Now I'm loyal to PC and won't go back to PE2K...it doesn't feel like I can fit in there.

I found PE2K while looking in the internet how to get to Pewter City in Crystal/Gold >_<

hmmm, nice stories you all :)

I guess I was asked here by Kwesi and offered to give up my forums at PPN to become a member site..
lets see, that was way back when... well, when PC first started on the pokecommunity.com domain.

It was back in grade 7, Pokemon G/S just came out and I was playing Silver. I asked my friend Andrew if he could help me find my way around the game, he gave a me a few links and one of them was Pokemon Palace. I downloaded all the good roms and emulators from there all the time, then one day I noticed there was a link to a forum. I clicked on it and there was this new forum, it looked dead but I joined anyways and said hih to Steeve.There stayed there for about 2 months.

3 years later...

Was surfing the web on Jan 1st 2003 and remembered about Pokemon Palace, I typed it up on the browser and quickly noticed something that said Pokemon Community at the top of the screen. You all know the rest.

I found Pokecommunity December last year (2002). Kwesi was hosting Serebii.net at the time, and when R/S came out in Japan, the server got a overload and crashed. When the server came back up, Serebii.net redirected me to Pokecommunity.com. That how I found Pokecommunity

For me, it started when I had downloaded the 5th movie in Japanese (subbed, of course ^_^, and I was lucky enough to find it with EMule) A while later, I was in the mood for more Pokmon vids on my computer, and since I had noticed they mentioned something about #free_pokemon in an overlay in the credits. I did a google search of it, and I found the official site... After worming my way around there, I hopped onto mIRC and into #free_pokemon, under a different name than I usually used - that name being Q Man (but it had to be Q_Man/QMan for the purposes of IRC) and after some confusion about downloading, I decided to look on thier forums for some help (they had a "forum" link, so I followed it) and BLAM! I was here, and found myself being one of 80-some people on PC at the time. Shortly after, I registered and expectantly waited over an hour and a half for the confirmation email. In the meantime, I just kept reading more and more and more posts, and I even tried to respond a few times, which didn't go over well, since I was still waiting for the darned confirmation email :p

Me popular? Wow, Well that's a new one for me, thanks for reading my posts, I hope they weren't of me ranting and raving XD. Anyway, I was still at TPM when I joined. Cas I think was unbanned there and I clicked a link of hers to a pic that was posted here. I deleted the extra stuff to the site link, searched for a few days and ended up joining ^^. But I will not go into the sad details on how I ended up to this name.

Well every one is doing it so here we go. One day I was doing a search on Pokemon. So here come this long list of pokemon sites so I started clicking them time went on and then I saw a it was The-Apcc, and I was like what is apcc so I clicked the link and it took me to the home page of The-Apcc, I looked a around and liked the site. Like a week or two later I went back to my search and came to a site called PokSafari so I clicked the link there, I liked that site too, went back to my search came to a site called The Unknown Dungeon, I went there too , back to my search the next two or three weeks, and two sites that I clicked was Free_Pokemon and The Pokemon Place Network. All of them sites I went to but The-Apcc was the one I went to the most. So I saw a link to a site called Pokemon Community,I came here and I didnt get the place (that was back in November of 2002), I looked around didnt like it (it was to big) later on in February I went back and though mabe I should join, so I did and you know the rest. (oh I didnt only to to community sites on that search most of them was small sites or sites selling cards and stuff like that but I did see two big sites SN and PE2K)

Lol. Well, I have sort of the same reason of you, but for me, I didn't see posts by Sugerangel, all I saw were posts by Haruka-chan, and I was like, "I wish I could be a part of the like that...she's so popular. I'd never stand out like that." XD
Really! x_x;

I think I first found PE2K via a Yahoo search when I was looking up information about GSC gym leaders...(yeah, I'm the kind of person that has to look up all the gym leaders and their pokmon before battling them in the games), after awhile, I started depending on it for other things too...Then one December day, I saw the little link at the top of the page that said "Forums". At the time, I had been banned from a TCG trading forum for other members complaining about me not keeping my end of trades and other stuff like that...And I realy wanted to post in forums again, so I clicked the link that brought me here (remember, this was the time when PE2K was still an affiliate and PE2K's forums were down). I instantly registered thinking it was the official PE2K forums (although, it wasn't until about 2-3 months later that I realized that this was a totally different forum) And as the PE2K people started leaving, not many people were left, in fact, most of the modern mods have been here since that time and have proven themselves loyal to PC before becoming a mod...

When Serebii had its Major Crash, I only have 2 choices to go... Bulbagarden or PC.

To tell the truth, I flipped a coin. Heads on Bulbagarden, Tails on PC. It landed on Tails... Then off to PC XD XD
