Naww, you're definitely not boring people. Talkative new users are the best new users since you can find what you have in common and hold some awesome conversations!
But anyways, you sound a lot like me when I was just getting into the series. The anime was absolutely amazing and I couldn't stop collecting the cards or playing the games. I still have most of my old cards sitting comfortably in a box with cat pictures on it, hehe. Still have that card binder I got in fifth grade as well. :D The only real difference between you and me is that I never really grew out of Pokemon; been as obsessed since I got into it in 1998/1999. It's definitely true that the franchise is still as amazing as ever though, right? Black & White introducing the moving battle sprites was one of the coolest additions and made the Pokemon seem much more alive. Black 2 & White 2 are amaazing sequels too, and I was just playing them a minute ago! The older games are amazing as well since Pokemon as a whole is a fantastic franchise. I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying Pokemon so much and hopefully that means PC will become much more fun to you.
I'm so sorry about your injury though! ;~; But luckily you have amazing forums like these and Pokemon to keep yourself occupied. It's great that you have already gone around and made some posts around this place so I'll be crossing my fingers you keep that up and evolve into an experienced forum member, yeah? It would stink if we lost you since you do seem like a great person.
Enjoy your stay on PC! I'll be looking forward to running into you lots and lots! Hope you have a great time here~
Heya Cirno :D, no worries and thanks for the welcome.
Haha well I'm glad people aren't put off by my rambling. Thought I'd try and give a decent intro of myself.
So do you still watch the anime? It was such an awesome fandom to be a part of when I was growing up, I don't remember anything else being quite as dominant as Pokemon was for so many years. Its good to know I'm not the only one who's kept their trading cards, most people I knew threw them out or gave them away.
It's great how you've been a part of the fandom since the start and are still very much a part of it now. I agree the franchise is still amazing and as far as the games goes it just gets better and better. I love the moving battle sprites in B & W, it helped give the games something fresh like a new lease of life. But you can't beat the older games, those are true classics. It used to be fun trying to get through the game as quickly as possible but then it would be more enjoyable making the most of the games and exploring everything possible.
Are you playing both Black 2 and White 2?
My love for Pokemon has definitely come alive again since playing Black 2, kind of makes me wish I hadn't grown out of it during that period but I'm really glad I found these forums.
Aww thanks, well even though its dead boring being stuck at home these forums are keeping me occupied. Its very active here so I'll have plenty of threads to read and post in.
I'll definitely be staying here and hopefully I'll evolve into an experienced member , shame I didn't find the forums earlier because everyone here seems really friendly and its great to see the Pokemon love is still thriving.
Anyway thanks again for the welcome and I'm sure I'll see you around the forums. =D
