I am new to the community and am stopping by to say hello! Like all of you, I've been a Pokemon fan all my life. I'll never forget the first time I played Pokemon Red on the original Gameboy (before Gameboy Color). My first starter was Charmander. When Gold and Silver came out, I let my younger brother choose Cyndaquil, although fire type was my favorite of the three starters. I reluctantly settled for Totodile. Lo and behold, Totodile was awesome and he's pretty much my favorite Pokemon ever (Arcanine is also pretty cool).
Very much looking forward to Sword & Shield. When I'm not playing video games, I try to entertain people with video game music parodies like this one. Otherwise, I have a full time job and that tends to keep me pretty busy.
Hey there poke_sly! Welcome to the community! :) Glad you decided to join us - it's always nice to see more veteran pokemon players find their way to PC. I remember playing Red on my Game Boy Pocket Silver and it was a revolutionary experience. Though my first starter was Squirtle, if I remember correctly!
Anyway, if you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! n_n;
I loveeeeeee Totodile as well as Arcanine! So great to see older fans sticking with the series for so long. I still remember getting Red version from my neighbor and that was what sucked me in. We cover pretty much all aspects of the Pokemon franchise, so I'm more than sure you'll find something you enjoy. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, enjoy your stay!
