I initially joined for Pokemon gaming discussions, but found myself ending up in other parts of PC too.

Also, I remember that I wanted a blog and fancy profiles when I first joined, and then fast-forward to October 2012 and *BAM!* my name turned italic blue and got my blog and fancy profile features in the end. And for it to happen weeks before I hit 5,000 posts!

I actually screencapped my 5,000th post in my PC Screenies picture album. The post was in a thread in the Black 2 & White 2 section. Then I hit 6,000 last month, next goal is to reach 7,000.
I liked reading that. When I read it, I imagined a voice documenting someone's life.

I'm cray I know. I even talk to myself when I do maths homework.

    I joined pretty much every major Pokemon forum out there but this is the only place I'm still active in.

      My Serebii account has long since been deleted, but I think my Bulbagarden profile is still up there... haven't been on it in years and years and years, but I don't think it's been pruned as of yet. That being said, this was the only place I've ever really been active. Nowadays, this is the only forum I go on at all, Pokemon or not.

      I've been more or less active ever since I joined last year late October. I clearly remember the first few days when I was so excited and enthusiastic about joining PC I posted around 24 straight posts on the first day itself hahaha. xD It was my first time joining a forum of any type, and I felt so happy to be able to talk and discuss freely about all things Pokemon where no one would ridicule me about me being a Pokefan. xD

      I did get slightly inactive from late December until earlier this year as I had lots of things to catch up on and to manage things in my life, but I gradually returned to full activity and have been ever since. xD

      This, as I have mentioned, has been the first and only Pokemon forum I've registered for, and so far, my experiences with it and the members have been exceptional. I could never trade this priceless membership for the world. ^^ <3

      My first Pokemon forum, was not PC but actually Bulbagarden. I disappeared silently a week after joining cos I was hit hard by excessive mod wrath. This was before my days of Oshawott Fangirlism so you know.

      I joined Serebii sometime in 2011 where I met one of my pairs, TylerSymes. I have also since joined Ever Grande, Petalburg Woods and a few other small forums, where I have served staff roles. I am pretty inactive nowadays on all except here and Ever Grande though I occasionally lurk Serebii occasionally.

      PC was pretty much by first Pokemon forum, and the only one I ever frequented. I'd read Serebii and Bulbagarden from time to time, but I never felt like I'd have much fun at either place. Been more or less active here for a while. Sort of. I went through a major period of inactivity for a few years and now I suddenly feel like posting again, it's amazing.

      I never saw the appeal in the small sub-communities. 80% of the members are members here, after all.

      Well, with Bulbapedia at least, there seems to be more of an emphasis on Pokemon in a...community sense? The forums aren't massive, but most of the activity is in those Pokemon areas and a lot of prominent members seem to talk about Pokemon pretty regularly. Serebii's just...blargh. That place is gigantic and it's so off putting.

      I have visited Bulbapedia and Serebii before not to join the forums, but only to search up some stuff about the games that I wasn't too sure about or that I curiously wanted to know. I have also taken a look at their forums, but none of them gave me the sense of the members being connected to one another.

      Pretty sure Serebii was the first Pokemon forum I joined back in 2006 or so but I never made more than 30 or 40 posts there I don't think. Can't get into its community since it's just so huge. ): Plus PC was so much more visually appealing since we have awesome skins. Serebii's aren't... the best haha.

      I've found Bulbapedia to be the most together in a community sense. I try going on Serebii from time to time, but compared to PC, I find it so disorganized. I have no idea why some forums are together or why some forums don't have post count enabled.

      Serebii is mean imo. :( And I didn't feel like BMGf was a community, most every thread was a poll when I wanted to visit, and I didn't really feel like I was making any friends, haha.

        It's just been PC for me as far as Pokemon forums go.

          True.One of the reasons that i stayed in PC was partly due to the friendly people here, the pokemon alone wouldn't have made me stay here.

          PokeCommunity,Come for the Pokemon stay for the people.

          I'm ashamed to say I've never joined Serebii nor Bulbagarden. PC was my first forum, EGC was my second, and nothing else came after. In fact, I wish I were more active in EGC because I pretty much just joined (very recently, too) and disappeared without a word. Too bad I only have time for one forum. D:

          I suppose I just stuck with the first one that I came to know. And I'm glad I did. :)

          God, their forum layouts were so confusing. Things you would expect to be grouped together aren't and then there are just so.many.subforums. that it feels a little OCD. And by a little I mean whoamygodwhathappenedhere.

          There's like forty staff members and some super mods haven't been taken off the mods list and they're the mods of evvvvery forum. Not necessarily bad but at first glance it's kinda weird.

          also Bulbagarden feels kinda weird. They seem to not like new people. At least that's what I ran into.

          I use Bulbagarden website for Pokemon stats, abilities, and movesets. Never bothered with its forum. PC really is the only forum I'm on, short of a mass amount of suspended/banned accounts on another one. x;

          11:30 and I'm just now eating breakfast. Successful Monday, hmm?

          I've been sick since Thursday. Thought I was feeling better, took a shower, got dressed and ready for class...only to have a painful reminder that I am not better yet. Successful Mondays all around!

          My first forum was actually a naruto forum known as NarutoLounge back in the day; it's known as Fandom now. Once I got bored and my affinity to Pokemon arose I google searched: "pokemon forum" and PC was there!

          I was very active at first, and then I sort of disappeared. I would come back to trade pokemon or whenever a new pokemon game was announced/released. This time around I've been here longer than I usually would so maybe I'll stay? lol

          Woke up at 9:30, in class right now but he's reviewing stuff from last week.

          (Sorry, I would end up spelling it wrong)
          Oh that sucks haha. Hope you get better soon.

          Googling is how I found PC, as well. x;
          It took weeks for me to realize that this isn't some "official" forum, though. Guess I never bothered to read that thing at the bottom until later.
