Hello Fallout, welcome to PC.
Like what Leaf Storm and Cirno said, we're all friendly here. And we have loads of boards you can browse and post in, and the Adoption Center is there so you can get help from someone specialized in your favorite board. PC is a big forum, but with lots of help from others you won't get lost.
Also, why not tell us some of your faves, like fave Pokemon, character, games etc. And I'm happy to be one of your friends here, you will need to talk a bit though since I love getting to know newbies better before I friend them.
Enjoy your stay and feel free to contact Cirno or any other moderator if you need help.
