Welcome to PC, Cubone! Great to meet you~ I'm always open to help out if you need it (and so is Cid), so contact either of us or another staff member anytime. ^^
Heeey Eevee and welcome to the forum! Your friend is instantly awesome for recommending you, hope you've been enjoying PC so far. :D You should stop by the Battle Center and Trade Corner for battles and trades; the people there are really cool. There are a lot of newbie competitive battlers in the Battle Center as well, so you'll undoubtedly learn a lot along the way!
