Really sorry about grandmother, Aero. :( I could understand how it feels when someone close (especially grandparents) starts feeling ill; sincerely hope she feels better soon. Good luck on getting your grades back up; see you when you return!

Awww that totally sucks... you were a nice guy and it was sad to see it end like this, but I did hear you were fighting with another supporter over the theme collab so I guess taking a break might help you calm down, but don't go away for too long Atif, because we'll miss ya!

I have also not been in a good mood because my 83 year old grandmother is currently fatally ill - I saw her in skype and boy... don't know what to say.
I feel so sorry for you bud... family illnesses always hit us hard, even worse if the sufferer dies because you'd be mourning really hard, and of course school also comes first. Good luck bud, and do return soon okay? Your friends love you after all, and I wish you all the best with the situation.

Well, I'm not entirely sure how to 'come back'. xD I've left and came back before, but last time I disappeared and it was even really a mystery to me. I had a mental breakdown basically, and shut myself off from all things computer. It was one of those situations where I just really, really needed to step away and give myself time to breathe. Focus on other things and spend a little more time appreciating the other things around me, ya know?

I never intended to leave, but man am I glad to be back. I'm always glad to come back...

I think I've seen you around, and yeah I know how bad your situation was since I have to deal with my brother being a brat so often, but nice to hear you're getting active again. PC may have changed a bit but we're still the same community. With a few extra changes that is.

Have fun settling in again Aquali! I'll catch ya around the forums!

Well, I'm "back" a bit earlier than I had anticipated. I will still probably not come online at all after today for couple days, but I do feel a bit better now. My grandmother is recovering well and will probably be out of hospital at the end of next month, though I don't think she's going to live much longer. I just hope I can see her in person again by the time I visit Korea in two years.

Welcome back, deary. I'm glad that you're feeling better. It's good to know that your grandma's recovering, too; she'll be all better in no time, don't worry. Hopefully, you'll get to see her sooner or later!

Hey Pokemon Forums! I was a member years ago, way back since 2008. I joined looking to get the Johto starters. While I never was an active member, I always enjoyed how kicked back/cool the members from this message board were. From the few posts I've read, I can tell that hasn't changed.

Hiya, Major Gripex; it's really nice to meet you! Welcome back to PokéCommunity. I've been away from the forums for quite a long time myself, and returned in August 2013. After I did, I just couldn't leave; people here are so friendly, they're sort of impossible to stay away from. Well, hope you enjoy it here! Feel free to drop by and leave a message on my profile if you'd like to have some chat. n_n

Hi guys i think i'm going to be on hiatus for an un-named period of time,starting tomorrow, due to very personal life issues (which includes both depression and school), anyone who wants to ask me about it is welcomed at my PM inbox. If i'll come back i promise to do a big re-opening of my profile at the lounge.

P.S.I might still be in the site,just looking from afar and not making any interaction with people other than close friends and managing the Randomized nuzlocke thread, so again, you can still PM me and i'll try to answer.

:'( Have fun.

Okay, good luck with your real life issues KillerCro. It always never hurts to take a break, and I'm confident you can overcome your depression and other problems at the moment. PC will be here when you get back!

Hey PC, it's been a long time! I've been off here for about...3-4 years give or take. Well, I feel like entering the grind that is Pokemon again so, here I am >,<

I have to say...personally it's quite a shock coming back here after so long. I used to browse on here all the time in High School and now I'm going for my Master's degree in college. I don't recognize anybody and I used to be very active/popular on these boards a long time ago. Feels the same with X/Y as well, so much has happened since I dropped DPPt. battling(I played B/W and hated it) that it feels as if I'm just learning how to play the game again. It's a lot to take in at once, but I'm confident over time I'll be up to speed again.

So anyway, a question for some of the regulars here: How would one go about filling the X/Y national dex as it is right now? I lost my completed Pokedex platinum cartridge and I'm really reeling about that, so I'm basically going to be starting from scratch. Before I even attempt battling again I feel as if it's good to have a healthy storage of Pokemon on the PC, plus it's fun to do. It's so I can access the storage in case I want to switch my team, or trade for another I'd like. Worked for me in Platinum/HGSS, it should in X/Y, right?

I've got Emerald, Colosseum/XD(I looove XD, I still have my Timid good IV'd Togepi with Tri-Attack/Serene Grace on my Emerald), Diamond, Platinum(recently re-bought), SS, White(access to Black/Black 2 from brother), and Y. Thanks to any help, honestly the PC community was like a family to me with how helpful it was. I hope while I'm here again that can branch out even more =)

I don't really remember you, but I guess that was because I joined when you initially left. Been ages ago now that I joined this community, but hey always nice to see an old face make a return!

PC has changed quite a lot in the last 3 years, such as new staff, section changes and obviously more skins and members. But we're still the same PC you know and love, and nice to hear X and Y are finally bringing you back since it seems like many hate 5th Gen (I actually like 5th Gen myself though) but I'm sure you can settle in again, even if some of your friends may have left.

Anyways, looking forward to seeing you around, Lil Mudkip! Have fun getting active again.

Welcome back Lil Mudkip! It's really been a while since you been here it seems. There's definitely been a good amount of changes since you last were nere. Name changes, for example, left and then made a comeback at the end of last year. So if you have to readjust to the forum, that's fine. I'm sure you'll make new friends here!

Congrats on all of your sucess by the way! I just started college in January and atm only working on an Associates degree at a 2 year community college. I have no clue what I'm majoring in yet, but I'm thinking either in some field of writing or art. I have time though cause I'd like to go to college for at least four years.

X and Y are excellent games and I'm happy knowing they made you interested in Pokemon again. Our X and Y section can help you with thing related to the game and we have a lot of other section where you can ask questions for other Pokemon games, one being Pokemon Gaming Central. One way to make filling up your Pokedex is through the Trade Corner section. There's giveaway, trade shops, and a Quick Trade Thread too. Also, you should download Pokemon Bank on your 3DS if you haven't already cause it's one thing you'll need to transfer Pokemon from older games. To transfer Pokemon from Emerald to Platinum,Diamond or Soulsilver, you put Emerald in the GBA slot of your DS, load up Platinum go to the thing that says "Migrate Pokemon" and choose 6 Pokemon to transfer. Then go to Pal Park and enter the Catching Show. Since you can only transfer since six at a time , that will take a while and is really tedious, but in the end it's worth it. In gen V games (Black, White, Black 2, and White 2) your can then transfer Pokemon from SS/Platinum/Diamond to White/Black/Black 2 using the PokeTransfer Lab on Route 15. Talk to the scientist guy and he'll tell what to do. You'll need two DSes or a DS and a 3DS. Then after that, you can transfer your Pokemon from your gen 5 games to your Y copy, by using Pokemon Bank and the PokeTransporter app that comes with it. Hope I helped! I'd put some links, but I'm on a 3DS right and can't access a PC at the moment.

Anyway, I'm glad you're back. If you have more questions, feel free to ask staff members! Enjoy your return to PC and have fun here once again! See you around too! Good luck getting your Masters by the way!

Thank you both Hikamaru and Kouzan for the awesome welcome back replies! Yeah Hikamaru since I'm gonna try and go for gen 6 100% national dex, I'm probably going to be spending lots of time on 5th gen so maybe it'll grow on me haha XD.

Yeah Kouzan I was the same. I attended University not exactly knowing what I wanted to do, but I feel if you explore all your options to their biggest potential you will find what your most interested in. For me, I'm trying to become a Chiropractor/Physical Therapist, and I might try and also become a certified nutritionist. I'm a very health oriented kind of guy that *loves* to cook, and that's evident by my daily 5-6 meal structure lol I originally went in for writing to become a journalist/author, so it's funny how things turn out in the end. I'm sure you will do the same, as I feel college is the time where lots of people seriously start reflecting where they "feel" they belong in life.

I'll copy/paste all that transfer info in my notes =)(Awesome how you did all that on a 3DS..technology these days man.) I have poke bank, so that's no issue.

As for the actual pokemon games themselves, I feel in a way, that...maybe I just can't let it go. There have been several times I've quit, come back for a long time, quit again, came back again. During 4th gen, I played Pokemon a lot in public. I didn't care, I was wayyyy too into my breeding lol. You'd actually be surprised at the amount of people I've met over the years just from playing my DS out in public. It's alwayyysss funny to compare to others how you just say the word "Pokemon". Like *I* say it "Poke-e-mon" and others say it like "Poke-ah-mon" lol. I think this time, I'm gonna make a sincere effort to stay with this series, I don't want to miss out on anymore of it...especially those events for one...gah x-x lol.

Oh yes technology is wonderful.
Spoiler:

(I'm on a computer now lol.)
No problem though. Glad to have helped. I agree with you that Pokemon is hard to let go of.I haven't stopped playing since Pokemon Red! I've met more people with X and Y personally. I bring my 3DS and my copy of Y (actually it's my friend's 3DS he letting me borrow it to play Y) to school everyday and I get around 4-10 Streetpasses a day and at least one or two of them last played Pokemon. Some have noticed me playing Pokemon and have told me they still love Pokemon and have a 3DS with them and X or Y in their game slot. Pokemon is an amazing way to make friends!

Also should of mentioned this in my last post , but feel free to VM me if you want to talk to someone. This isn't really a chat thread anyways. I don't bite. We're nice people so go ahead and talk with one. Most will reply in a friendly answer back!
