    Hello again!

    I'm sorry once again for being late to respond -- but I'm glad that you seem happy about your life. It's always pleasant to know that you're doing well. And I hope that it stays that way!

    I would certainly like to have your e-mail address; it would be a good way for us to talk more often (I'll be better at remembering to talk to you that way). You can send it to me via private message when you feel comfortable with that. I assume you know mine already (it's the same e-mail address that I've used since 2004).

    Also, I forget who Elena is... is that the nickname for your Cyndaquil? I have a bunch of Fire-types myself, the most recent being a Blaziken in Omega Ruby. And speaking of Omega Ruby, I notice that you're online once in a while, which cheers me up. I like being able to give you O-Powers!

    I won't say much about the weather if you don't want to hear it, although winter just started for me a couple of days ago. So, the nights are quite long here, while I assume that you have long days now.

    And finally, I wish you happy holidays! Take care and I hope we talk again soon! If I don't get to talk to you by the end of this year, then I wish you a happy new year as well!

    Sorry too for being late to reply.

    Life has been pretty busy lately, though in a good way. Now that I have solidifed my part-time job, I have enough time for myself to actually have a social life, or at least a good simulacrum of it up to and including going drink coffee with old pals. Lacks a girlfriend tho.

    I think we can talk more via email too, just lemme up and send you my account if I haven't done so one of these days. Elena's doing pretty fine, she's the most powerful Fire type in my team, not that it means very much considering I only have four fire types of which one (a certain event Torchic) is just idling in a box, but eh :p


    Oh and don't get me started on the weather. I swear, someone or something wants to make us crazy on a mass scale. :p

    I'm sorry again for being slow to respond -- I really should be better at coming here more often. But rest assured that I haven't forgotten about you (actually, I think about you a lot).

    How has life been? Still busy, or has it eased up for you? While this summer was very hot where I live, it started to cool down significantly and it's rained a ton lately. It's actually a huge relief, since I couldn't stand the hot weather, and I like the rain a lot. Not to mention, last fall was extremely dry where I live, so it's nice to see this fall have more rain. How has the weather been for you? Is there still a lot of rain, and is it warming up for you?

    What would be your preferred method to talk? E-mail can work if that's best for you. Just let me know!

    I see, well I hope it changes for the better for you.

    re: busyness. It's incredibly heavy right now since besides work I'm juggling an emergency project and a creative design project. These will be "fun" remaining ~20 days. At least it's warming up, yes; however the rain doesn't stop yet, which makes things very uncomfortable for the time being.

    But once that's over, yeah, we should somehow talk more. Perhaps e-mail, if we can't coerce our timezones into helping us. And sorry that I can't really help making things less lonely.

    Sorry for the incredibly slow response -- I don't go to this forum all that often. Anyway, I can see that you are busy, and I hope it's not stressing you out.

    As for the weather, it's summer where I live, and it's been unusually hot for the entire summer. It's reached as high as 95°F (35°C) several times, without any sign of it stopping anytime soon. I'm really sick of it and can't wait for autumn to start.

    In contrast, I hope it hasn't been too cold for you. In any case, I assume it will warm up for you soon. Am I right?

    Finally, I do miss talking to you. I noticed you online a few times playing Pokémon Y, which is nice. But I've felt really lonely ever since 2014 started (mainly due to various friends that I have who are really busy). Anyway, I hope we can talk again soon sometime!

    I have been busy with work, travellin' cities and takin' pictures of ships and markets and hotels. In my spare time I'm getting back to writing, and catching up with friends.

    For the most part, besides the winter cold, life is a couple of decimal points over averagely good.

    What about you? I don't think you have cold this time of the year...?

    Hey, how have you been? I haven't heard from you in almost two months. I hope you're doing well!

    OK, nice! Do you have any problems using it? I know it can be a bit confusing, so if you have any questions, let me know...

    Also, yeah, when you create the page, you could to it from the Proyecto Pokédex page, and perhaps make a sub-page from the larger Proyecto Pokédex page. I'm not sure that you even need the English text, either (originally I planned to write it in both languages, so that if somebody doesn't understand my broken Spanish, they could try to read the English, but writing it in English took me long enough and I didn't have time to translate it). If you can improve the explanation, go ahead, we need more people using the script so that the movesets can be added faster.

    And as for e-mail... you can use whatever you want; I don't have a Yahoo account but I can create one if you want to use instant messaging (currently, I use Gmail, but I am starting to get fed up with Google...). Just know that I am often busy, so I probably won't be able to instant message much at all, only on rare occasions. (Not to mention... what language would we be speaking in since we speak different languages? Well, we can figure that out later...)

    Aaaanyway, the translation is almost ready and I'm adding some small touches in particular when it comes to documentation.

    However I don't know where to set it. A link from the Proyecto Pokédex page, perhaps? A demonstrative page with examples?

    Don't worry, I can handle the translation, and should be up at the Pokéteca server next week.

    As for the e-mail, I'm thinking of a Yahoo one. Not bad e-mail service, but I'd like if it added something else, and unfortunately Yahoo Messenger seems to be incompatible with all other "messenger" protocols. Will get back to you soon, I hope.

    Thanks! I hope you understand how the code works, I don't know if you've worked with Python before... I should add comments to what everything does, it can get complicated at times... also, yes, it would be nice if you handled the Spanish translation, you could do it faster and without grammatical errors (I would probably make lots of them, seeing that I'm not native...). As for the page, do you mean this? I find it useful; I used it as a reference before I wrote the script...

    ....Nice script! Let me analyze it further and handle the Spanish translation, should be useful for Pokéteca. I have a page on how to edit and transform the TM and leve move tables from Bulbapedia as well, but since I only linked it from the forum, I can't find it... and am too lazy to look for it...

    Thanks :D

    Anyway... I wasn't even there much myself in the last year or so, although that's more due to personal issues that had nothing to do with PkStation... I hope the community can somehow be rebuilt, even though everybody went in different directions, it seems... anyway, just let me know if you publish your fanfic again, I don't mind if it's months from now... (After all, I'm often so busy that I often forget about things like that...)

    Hmmm... I hope that people involved in the project come back. Some of them haven't even been around for years... although it would help if they had e-mail notifications, I guess. Not to mention, pretty much all of the original staff has disappeared, and they show no signs of coming back. Look at this, for example... it's mostly you, me, Aria, bots, and a few lurkers here and there. Then again, I guess I'm being pessimistic...

    As for the script... Here it is. You will need Python 2.7.2 (google it), and unfortunately for now, the guide that I wrote on how to use it (there's a README file attached) is only in English. It took me a long time to write, and I haven't had time yet to write it in Spanish too... (writing things in Spanish always takes me much, much longer). I hope you can understand my English explanation, although I'll write a Spanish one eventually... also, I hope the code isn't too convoluted...

    I'll finish this message by saying that I hope you're doing all right.

    We're all been busy. Also happy New Year...

    Don't worry too much at the fall of PKStation. From what I gather, it was a mixture of external withering and internal conflict, but I can be mistaken. Still, it should be possible to more or less rebuild the community somewhere. I still have my fanfic of course, it's just that I'm waiting until joining another community before republishing it. I'm not so keen on publishing it here because it is in Spanish though, and I really don't want to bother with a translation for the time being as I'm busy translating Playfield the other way around, so it'll have to wait until I join somewhere else en Español de la Corona.

    Now, to be honest, I'd rather you don't charge yourself too much on work because of the movesets. In my opinion, what we should be doing is calling the people of the Moves Project so that they take responsibility as well. It would give me more time to dedicate to what I really want to write about - technical descriptions, etymology and Nidorans. Planned to send the guys a message via Discussion, but haven't done so yet so that I dont come off as strong. As for the script, would love to haave it, ATM I'm working with regexes.

    Will respond to the rest of your comments later and will send you my new email address then. Have a good time.

    I guess I should be the one apologizing for responding so late now, I've been so busy lately...

    I'm sorry to hear that your fic didn't last for long. I hope you still have it; I suppose you could always publish it here if that's the case.

    Still, I don't know why the staff just pulled the plug. I know that things seemed to have been rough for Habieru in the last two years, but still... the community there was rather large, and now everybody just separated. Pokéteca is also a ghost town now... none of the original staff is there anymore, and there are very few people who contribute to it now besides Aria, you, and me... and admittedly, I spend less time there than I used to (both due to my busy life, and the lack of people there).

    I mean... yesterday, I started to work on a lot of the Generation V movesets (I take the lists from Bulbapedia, then use a Python script to format the templates -- this is much faster than making the lists by hand), then after a while, I realized there were still over 80 Pokémon from Isshu Teselia Unova left to work on when I got about 15 done in a day, and that just exhausted me. If more people went to the site, my contributions there would be more meaningful, but, well... sometimes I just get demotivated quickly now.

    And of course, I'm busier than ever. I don't think it will be that bad for a few months, but after that, I'll have little time to do much. And starting in the middle of the year, I doubt I'll be able to have much free time, except weekends and evenings late at night...

    Anyway, I'm done ranting about myself. I hope you're able to get your job at the video game stand, let me know what happens :D I also hope that you had a nice Christmas (yes, I know I'm two weeks late) and you're having a good 2012 so far.

    Also, yes, let me know when you have your e-mail (or whatever you plan to use) ready.

    Sorry for the long message. I've written far longer in the past, but anyway... I have a tendency to write long messages at times; I often have a lot to say.

    PS: Before I forget to tell you, I got a Spanish version of Pokémon Azul this Christmas. I've played Spanish versions of Pokémon games in the past (Rojo, Cristal, Zafiro, Verde Hoja, Esmeralda, Perla, & Platino) through a certain way (heh), but this it the first time that I've actually owned a Spanish cartridge of a Pokémon game (all my other cartridges are in English, which, as you probably know, is my native language).
