    Thanks :D

    Anyway... I wasn't even there much myself in the last year or so, although that's more due to personal issues that had nothing to do with PkStation... I hope the community can somehow be rebuilt, even though everybody went in different directions, it seems... anyway, just let me know if you publish your fanfic again, I don't mind if it's months from now... (After all, I'm often so busy that I often forget about things like that...)

    Hmmm... I hope that people involved in the project come back. Some of them haven't even been around for years... although it would help if they had e-mail notifications, I guess. Not to mention, pretty much all of the original staff has disappeared, and they show no signs of coming back. Look at this, for example... it's mostly you, me, Aria, bots, and a few lurkers here and there. Then again, I guess I'm being pessimistic...

    As for the script... Here it is. You will need Python 2.7.2 (google it), and unfortunately for now, the guide that I wrote on how to use it (there's a README file attached) is only in English. It took me a long time to write, and I haven't had time yet to write it in Spanish too... (writing things in Spanish always takes me much, much longer). I hope you can understand my English explanation, although I'll write a Spanish one eventually... also, I hope the code isn't too convoluted...

    I'll finish this message by saying that I hope you're doing all right.

    We're all been busy. Also happy New Year...

    Don't worry too much at the fall of PKStation. From what I gather, it was a mixture of external withering and internal conflict, but I can be mistaken. Still, it should be possible to more or less rebuild the community somewhere. I still have my fanfic of course, it's just that I'm waiting until joining another community before republishing it. I'm not so keen on publishing it here because it is in Spanish though, and I really don't want to bother with a translation for the time being as I'm busy translating Playfield the other way around, so it'll have to wait until I join somewhere else en Español de la Corona.

    Now, to be honest, I'd rather you don't charge yourself too much on work because of the movesets. In my opinion, what we should be doing is calling the people of the Moves Project so that they take responsibility as well. It would give me more time to dedicate to what I really want to write about - technical descriptions, etymology and Nidorans. Planned to send the guys a message via Discussion, but haven't done so yet so that I dont come off as strong. As for the script, would love to haave it, ATM I'm working with regexes.

    Will respond to the rest of your comments later and will send you my new email address then. Have a good time.

    I guess I should be the one apologizing for responding so late now, I've been so busy lately...

    I'm sorry to hear that your fic didn't last for long. I hope you still have it; I suppose you could always publish it here if that's the case.

    Still, I don't know why the staff just pulled the plug. I know that things seemed to have been rough for Habieru in the last two years, but still... the community there was rather large, and now everybody just separated. Pokéteca is also a ghost town now... none of the original staff is there anymore, and there are very few people who contribute to it now besides Aria, you, and me... and admittedly, I spend less time there than I used to (both due to my busy life, and the lack of people there).

    I mean... yesterday, I started to work on a lot of the Generation V movesets (I take the lists from Bulbapedia, then use a Python script to format the templates -- this is much faster than making the lists by hand), then after a while, I realized there were still over 80 Pokémon from Isshu Teselia Unova left to work on when I got about 15 done in a day, and that just exhausted me. If more people went to the site, my contributions there would be more meaningful, but, well... sometimes I just get demotivated quickly now.

    And of course, I'm busier than ever. I don't think it will be that bad for a few months, but after that, I'll have little time to do much. And starting in the middle of the year, I doubt I'll be able to have much free time, except weekends and evenings late at night...

    Anyway, I'm done ranting about myself. I hope you're able to get your job at the video game stand, let me know what happens :D I also hope that you had a nice Christmas (yes, I know I'm two weeks late) and you're having a good 2012 so far.

    Also, yes, let me know when you have your e-mail (or whatever you plan to use) ready.

    Sorry for the long message. I've written far longer in the past, but anyway... I have a tendency to write long messages at times; I often have a lot to say.

    PS: Before I forget to tell you, I got a Spanish version of Pokémon Azul this Christmas. I've played Spanish versions of Pokémon games in the past (Rojo, Cristal, Zafiro, Verde Hoja, Esmeralda, Perla, & Platino) through a certain way (heh), but this it the first time that I've actually owned a Spanish cartridge of a Pokémon game (all my other cartridges are in English, which, as you probably know, is my native language).

    Sorry for the really slow response.

    Well... it has been sad. You know, I published a fic there less than one month before it closed, so it is now lost to the intertube worms until I upload it elsewhere. I wanted to try and help the community rebuild or something.

    Still, not all is lost. We are at Pokéteca, we are here, and I can send you another means for us to communicate privately as soon as I have them ready.

    I'm also applying for a job at a videogame stand. I hope I get it...

    Hello :O I just noticed that PkStation has started to close. You probably know that already though... but anyway, I think it's sad, because there was a whole community there, and there will be people that I'll never be able to talk to again :( But at least we can still talk here! My English is far better than my Spanish, anyway... How has it been for you?

    Yeah, the Pokémon Etymology articles that you made are still there, as you can see here: [1][2] Nobody's even touched them, either...

    Funny thing, when I was playing through HeartGold, I got a female Nidoran from the Pokéwalker and decided to keep it throughout the whole game. And now in my current FireRed playthrough, I'm using a male Nidoran. Just thought I'd like to let you know.

    By the way, definitively sounds a bit weird in that context... definitely sounds better... at least, to me, anyway.

    You should go back to Pokéteca sometime... I don't know if you're busy or what, but when you have the time, it could always use your help.

    A good thing then! I've been itching to come back to complete the Pokémon Etimology articles for 1st and 2nd gen, that if they haven't been deleted yet. Also, Nidos. They still need more love.

    I kind of figured that on Pokabu. I had a mental list of "oh, I know, this guy X I know from site Y will surely pick Z as their Starter". I myself am rooting for Smug Snake (fan nickname) for the moment but if the final evos seem to follow the tradition of the Pokémon games (cutest base form → coolest final evo) then I'm going with the Water type. Can't remember the name right now.

    We'll be definitively going to see each other then"!

    Good to hear back from you, especially since we haven't talked in months, and good to hear that you've been OK. I've been OK too, but I've also been stressed out a little bit from issues in real life.

    Oh, and I'm still obsessed with Fire-type Pokémon! You've probably heard of Pokémon Black and White. When those games come out, I'm definitely going to choose Pokabu as my starter! That probably wouldn't surprise you, though...

    (As for Pokéteca, I hope that we'll see each other again on that site. The good thing is that a lot more people have been contributing to it lately (and there are new "Pokétecarios"), which helps a lot. Yay! And I still contribute too, lately I've added articles about various Kanto routes and other things.)

    I've been OK, gracias por preguntar. Long time to not see you, too.

    ¿Nos veremos de nuevo en Pokéteca?

    Hello. It's been a few months since we last talked to each other... ¿cómo estás?

    Wow... I didn't even notice that you posted in my profile until now. Before I say anything else, I hope you don't mind that I write in English, because, for me, it's much easier than Spanish. (I'm not sure if you know this, but my native language is English. This might surprise you, since you've seen me at Spanish sites like PkStation and Pokéteca. This is why my Spanish can sometimes be awkward (weird).)

    Anyway... things have been okay for me. I've been rather busy lately, but I've been spending a lot of my free time on sites like Pokéteca and a few other sites. It seems that at least half of the contributions there come from me... sigh. It would be nice if other people helped... I guess Spanish speakers don't have much interest in Pokémon.

    So how have you been?
