You're invited to celebrate the PokéCommunity's 10th Anniversary.
The 10th Anniversary Get-Together starts September 24.

What is the Get-Together?


This month, the PokéCommunity turned 10 years old! To celebrate this important milestone, get together with your favorite band of members and mingle with entirely new ones - the Get-Together is aptly named for being a community event where everyone is invited to get together! (There's that word again.)

The 10th Anniversary Get-Together runs for seven days. It commences from midnight (Eastern Daylight Time) on September 24 and finishes up at 11:59 PM September 30.

For the fourth consecutive year of the Get-Together, as with every other year we've a swag of member-run events for everyone to participate in; we've done our best to cater for a good bunch of the many things you might be interested in! As with every Get-Together, we've also got the traditional chat thread happening - a place to chat and chat, moreso about the past 10 years!

Events will take place in a dedicated event forum which you will be able to see from midnight on the 24th of September. Mark the calendar and be sure to attend!

Those times in other areas of the world:
Hawaii 6:00 PM Monday September 24
West Coast: 9:00 PM Monday September 24
Central: 11:00 PM Monday September 24
London: 5:00 AM Tuesday September 25
Berlin: 6:00 AM Tuesday September 25
Tokyo: 1:00 PM Tuesday September 25
Sydney: 2:00 PM Tuesday September 25

    During the week. Some events may opt to have signups early (nobody's asked for permission yet) but you'll be doing most of the important stuff during the week.

              Hey guys!

              My name is Darren, or Latios as I used to be known many years ago. I used to run a Pokémon website called Shining Misdreavus. It wasn't huge, but we did have a few members who were loyal and I had a great time running it. I remember signing up to these forums back in 2003 but never really used them that much. Looking back at my posts are rather embarassing, I would recommend others try to move forward and not look back.. >_<

              I have disregarded and ignored e-mails from Pokécommunity for years, I still get them from time to time but my interest in Pokémon has left me now. I will always value and respect the series but sadly I have no further interest in the franchise. But, I just had to come back here to wish you guys a happy 10th anniversary, it's great to see that you're still going and I wish you all the best for the future.

              I may not be a fan of Pokémon anymore, but I am still a huge fan of Nintendo and gaming, that will probably never change. I am a big Metroid fan these days, if there are any fans of that franchise, I guess you can get in touch if you want to chat further, just drop me a PM or something..

              But seriously well done guys, I hope your community event goes well. Thanks for the memories!

                You all should participate in the most amazing roleplay event. :D Also skype event too. Be sure to attend both! :D

                In the meantime, I can't wait to participate in the many events offered at the GTX! Next week will be a light week, as I won't be too buried in college work, so I'll have plenty of time to hang with you all. <3

                Oh that's kinda awesome that the GT has brought back some of the oldest members! Shame you can't stay but PC definitely appreciates the kind words.

                  WOW! A big list of things to do. Maybe there are too many amazing things to do. It feels like a summer camp, "Do I have to go home already?"

                  Or, that is how I imagine I will feel!

                  Things are looking splendid, can't wait to get together once again and have a great time; will definitely be entering as much events as possible (ones that I'm interested in)! Very much looking forward to the Anime Snapshot, Movie Nights, and more!

                      Looking forward to this. Lots more things to do and skype will be 1 thing I will be joining. Hopefully we have good topics though.

                      Events are well suited to everyone aswell even with a shiny swap which for me a shiny collector will be great. Will donte some spares I have laying around to.
