View Full Version : Having a midlife crisis in my 20s :P

Hi all ^^
I'm new here! I suppose you can just call me Tori :)
I just found this place while looking for a red/blue Raichu sprite (which I still haven't found!)

Over the past few months I've really gotten back into Pokemon.
I bought a 3DS back in July and have since played Black (gave up in the elite 4 and traded it in - thought about going out and getting black2 to replace it), Pearl (currently stuck beating the Pokemon master), and Soul Silver (just started it)

As is obvious from my custom title, I'm a growlithe fan ^__^ He was my favorite pokemon back when I was a kid and he still is today!

I've decided to rewatch the old pokemon show and it's taking everything in my power to watch the series straight through and not just skip to all the episodes that feature growlithe.... Currently just finished Tentacool and Tentacruel episode.

So yeah... ummm... I guess I'm mostly just a gamer?
I've developed a bit of an original character (OC) who's a pokemon trainer (hence Tori) - I don't know if that's a trend her or not... I haven't really looked around much yet.

But I'm hoping to share the pokemon love :)

Hey there TrainerTori, welcome to Pokecommunity. It's unfortunate that you decided to give up on Black and traded it in. I really suggest picking up one of the fifth generation games and trying again, though I can't really force you to do something. Since you have Pearl and Soulsilver (which is my favorite DS Pokemon game), you might want to check out the Fourth Generation Games (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=238) section here.

Also, it seems like you are into either Roleplaying (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18), or FanFiction (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=20). Just click on the links in the words and you'll be well on your way developing new adventures for your original character.

Once again, welcome and I hope you enjoy yourself here.

Thanks for the links Tabor62 :D I'll have to check them out!!

Yeah :( I was a bit sad about turning in black myself, because, at the time, I didn't realize I'd get so into Pokemon - I was just killing downtime playing. I did buy Pearl with the money I got from back though :)
My birthday is actually in the next few weeks, and I slapped White 2 (figured I'd try something a little different) on my wish list! Hopefully I'll get it :D

Hello Tori!

Here you go.
I hope you meant the games Red and Blue xD other wise you could request a recolour at my shop :)
You have a 3DS? Lucky xD I gave up on Sinnoh it didn't really excite me xD I also just started (well restarted) my HeartGold xD Yes, your avatar... sort of displays your Growlithe love xD I don't really watch the anime anymore, I've missed too much to know what's happening xD Yes, but the trends sort of died out, my character isn't a Trainer, rather a pokemon, Pikakitten xD Good share it all over! xD Anyways hope you can enjoy PC, have fun, bye!

Hey there, Tori! Welcome to PC~!

And I'm happy to hear that you're getting into Pokemon again! You remind me of myself early last year, when I started to have this rising/falling interest towards Pokemon because I didn't really play the games as often anymore, and I thought that I was really starting to lose interest. Though the moment that I picked up Black 2, I was hooked again. n_n The better news is that I'm even(slowly) getting back into competitive again! Though that's only when I have time, though~

And Growlithe is a cute Pokemon, though I prefer Ninetales myself. :3 It's a very elegant Pokemon, y'know? It looks so fluffy and stuff n___n;

But I hope you enjoy your time here at PC! :3 If you want to talk, don't hesitate to send me a PM/VM!
