Hello everyone, nickname is NotSoMagical, just an aspiring game developer and Pokémon enthusiast ever since having played Ruby for the first time some years ago (favorite pokémon being Politoed). Fan of classic games and re-inventions of them.
I study programming and game design, while also spriting as a hobby, want to expand my list of hobbies though. Heard about PokéCommunity in another spanish speaking forum some time ago, but decided to join today, because why not?
I lurk on forums most of the time, so I'm not really active unless I find an interesting thread or make one myself. Hope to enjoy my time on this forum and meet some cool people.
There are definitely a lot of interesting people here, I'm sure you can make a lot of friends and meet people that share those hobbies... Enjoy :)
Politoed is an interesting choice, did you use him in your Ruby playthrough?
I really do not remember a lot of my first Ruby playthrough (I was like 9 years old at the time if I recall correctly), but from what do I remember, I never got to have it due to me not having any idea of trade evolutions at the time. I believe first time I got to really use Politoed was in my Crystal Clear playthrough (Which was many years later). Really liked their design beforehand, and their moves were also what made it my favorite.
Heyo! Said hi to you on Discord already (username Dakota there) but welcome to the forums! What kind of programming do you do?
Politoed is in my top 5 fav mons you have good taste!
I have really basic knowledge of how Game Maker Language works, my programming skills are really small as I'm still learning the most basics, but I focus on videogame programming in general. Also, cool to know more people like Politoed a lot!
