Ah, joining. But it will be quite difficult.

- Favorite Episode: I do not believe in playing favorites.
- Favorite Main Pony: I do not believe in playing favorites.
- Favorite Side Pony: I do not believe in playing favorites.
- About Me: Used to write Pokemon fanfiction. Started watching ponies instead.

I'm here with a question, which I am also asking elsewhere:

I've noticed that the "brony" population has a significant concentration Pokemon fans.

On Youtube many of the commentators on pony videos have obviously Pokemon-related usernames.

Pony avatars and themes appear all over PokeCommunity (this was probably the first place I ever saw it) and other Pokemon fansites.

Out of all the threads on the first page of this here "Other clubs" forum, the pony one has one of the most replies/views (2,445/73,085), trailing only Bleach at 3,385/80,552. But that is to be expected -- it's a year older than you.

So anyway, I really want to know:
Why My Little Pony and not something else?
Is it because of certain influential Pokemon site users?
Or is there something about MLPFIM that attracts the same people as Pokemon?
