Hey there :D My name's Dott

I'm actually kinda new to this whole pokemon thing :S The game i've got going on right now is my first legit game. I'm playing on my sister's copy of heartgold. I had a game on there before, but my sister deleted it D: I gave up and didn't start again til a few weeks ago and I really got into it. So I'm kind of a pokenoob, it's intimidating to see all these long-time fans even though you all seem nice!

I'm also into Phineas and Ferb, Gorillaz, Homestuck, Skyrim, Katy Perry, Adventure Time, Victorious, and stuff like that. The first three are my main interests, though :] Also, my Tumblr url is canderemy, since I can't post links yet.

I'm really bad at describing myself :S So I'm just gonna end this here, I think. Nice to meet everyone :]

Hey there Dott, and welcome to PC! My name is Zach, and it's a pleasure in getting to know you! {:3}

Oh, so you're new to Pokémon? Not to worry, we have many helpful users here who could guide you if you need help! And oh my glob, you're into Adventure Time?!?! You and I will get alike :3c We have an Adventure Time fan club (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=300075) run here by my good friend AWSquared and he'd be more than happy to have a new member join his club! :D Out of curiosity, who's your favorite AT character? Mine is Flame Princess, cuz she's awesome and cute <333 Enough with that, I just hope you don't mind my fan-gasm there xD

Anyways, as a reminder, please be sure that you look over the rules here, so that you do not wind up getting into trouble at all! The last thing we want to see of new members here is them breaking the rules and getting an infraction :(

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate in asking anyone around here on staff. They are the users with the bold usernames, and they would be more than glad to help you out whenever you may need them! :)

Hope you enjoy your stay here at PC, Dott! Feel free to send me a friend request if you want to! And you are always more than welcome to send me a PM and or leave a VM on my profile if you ever wish to chat with me! ^_^

Bad at describing yourself? I don't think so! Welcome to the forum Dott, love the username. :3

It's fine if you're new to Pokemon! We have lots of others who are as well here, PC's a pretty diverse place. If you're playing HeartGold right now I suggest the Fourth Generation Gaming (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=238) board for your HGSS-related needs. You can ask for help if you need it in its quick questions thread at the top of the fourth gen board while help with your team would fall under the Battle Center (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=260) realm. Our battle board was recently slightly renovated so if you're not able to access things or something looks off to you, it'll be fixed as soon as possible! Hopefully that links works for you, haha. What starter did you pick? :) I chose Chikorita in my first HeartGold run, but Totodile and Cyndaquil do amazingly well as starters! On my new file I picked Cyndaquil and haven't evolved him yet because he's too adorable.

Soon enough you're going to be very knowledgeable in the Pokemon department. A lot of our members walk out with quite a bit of knowledge under their belt. You tend to learn things without realizing here since there are always new topics cropping up and all sorts of theories/discussions that you never knew existed before. If you're interested in collecting 'em all then I also suggest the Trade Corner (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=161) for your trade-related needs. What other Pokemon games have you heard of? Any plans to try the others like Platinum, Black/White, or Black 2/White 2? There are also some great older Pokemon games like FireRed/LeafGreen and Emerald, both of which are quite popular around here. n~n Though of course there's an immense amount of hype surrounding the sixth generation coming in October; I totally think you should look into that if you haven't already. Pokemon X & Y are looking to be some of the coolest main series games we'll get yet! Plenty of great features and a totally different graphics style, whee.

Going outside the Pokemon realm, I'll leave the link here to our lovely Homestuck fanclub (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=294052) as well! If you're a big fan I'm sure you'll fit in nicely there so be sure to join. It's a big and growing fanclub with a looot of members. :) There's a ton of hype surrounding Homestuck nowadays! I'm soo left out baww.

Anyways, that's all from this lil member, so hopefully you have a great time here and again, welcome to PC!

I have to say, awesome avatar there! Noodle is great.

Hi and welcome to PC! HeartGold (and SoulSilver) are really fun Pokemon games indeed, still feel a bit sorry about your file getting deleted, I do hope you can start a new one soon! If you are interested in discussing HG/SS I might recommend Fourth Generation Gaming (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=238). And given your interests there, it seems like you'll get on with a lot of people here since they seem to have some of the same interests as you. I'd also recommend both General Entertainment (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29) and Video Games (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=27) based on what you mentioned, and since I saw a few fanclubs on those as well I might also recommend Fan Clubs & Groups (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=73) as well. Zach and Cirno covered some of your introduction but I'll leave my part too.

But yeah, I do hope you enjoy it here at PC, and if you ever need help don't forget to ask any staff members (like Cirno there, she mods this section) and also some of the older members like Zach and myself, everyone here would love to meet you. Have an awesome time here Dott!

Hi Dott welcome to PC!

Aww don't be intimidated by the fans who've been into the series longer! We're really nice and understand if you're still new. We have fans of all kinds here; ones who've been with Pokemon ever since the beginning and newer fans too. So you're not alone at all! There's alot member who will guide you as well and help with anything you need to know about Pokemon. I'm a long time fan myself and have been playing since the first games Pokemon Red and Blue. If you ever have the chance, definitely try to get your hands on those cause you can get a taste of what it's like back then. Then of course there's news games coming out in October for the 3DS, Pokemon X and Y. Have you heard of those games or are you excited for those? They look like they'll be huge! If you didn't know of them yet, you can check out the X and Y (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=256) section we have here and catch up and discuss all the info revealed so far. HeartGold is one of my favorite cause it's brings back those memories of playing the originals, Gold and Silver. You can talk about them in the Fourth Generation Gaming (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=256) section. I think that as soon as you start posting around here you'll have tons of knowledge on Pokemon and be even more obsessed on the series.

I love Adventure Time! It's one of my favorite series and one of my current obsessions and I've seen all the episodes! In fact I'm wearing an Adventure You should check out my Adventure Time club (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=300075) where we talk about the series as a whole. We could always use more members active there. Fan Clubs & Groups is a great place to get to know users with similar interests. There's also a Katy Perry fan club (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=7721661#post7721661) but it hasn't really been active for a while so you can boost up activity there too. Though you're not really supposed to post in threads over a month old , so I really suggest you wait about a week or so and then make a new one. Clubs need to be approved of, but it doesn't take long if it meets the conditions required. You can also talk about Katy Perry and the other shows and music you like in General Entertainment. You should browse the forums around for all it's worth cause there's alot of places to talk here and make friends!

I think with all the Pokemon boards and if you stay somewhat active here you'll learn a ton about Pokemon! PC members are really helpful so if you have any questions, don't bother asking them. I hope you stick around and have fun here. Talk to me anytime! I'd love to chat!

Hey Zach! Yeah, Adventure Time's great :D I'll be sure to check out the club soon. My favorite is probably Princess Bubblegum, I love how she's into science. Nice to meet you!

Hi Cirno :] Thanks for the links! I picked Totodile, they're my favorite for some reason, haha! They're super cute. & I'll check out the Homestuck club soon, too!

Hey Kikari :D Thanks, Noodle is my favorite character in Gorillaz. But about my game getting deleted, I didn't have any trouble getting started on my file again, the game really sucks you in, haha

Hi Aaron! I've heard of X and Y and I'd like to play them, but I haven't got a 3ds yet :( I'm asking for one for my birthday, though! My sister's got copies of Diamond and White too, but she's very protective of her stuff, I'll be lucky to play them haha. Thanks for the club links, Adventure time is awesome :D

Sorry is replying like this is a bit awkward, I just didn't want it to drag on into a bunch of posts and I didn't want it to be super long either :S

Edit: I'm gonna get off for now since I have limited internet time. I wont be on again til tomorrow night, so see you guys later
