Hi there! Welcome to the PokeCommunity! I see you joined in August of last year, so I assume you're trying out your account for the first time?
Anyways, Glad to see you join in this amazing community! It's alright that you are not a competitive battler, a lot of us don't really focus on battling. Pokemon Silver was my favorite game, you should play the GB ones soon, because they do bring back memories. Ruby was alright, though. You can talk about Ruby in the Advanced Generation gaming board located in the General Pokemon Gaming section of the forum, as well as other games you played on the GBA.
Well, hope you feel comfortable here, and be sure to ask a staff member if you have any questions. Be sure to read the rules, since they're pretty important. Most importantly, have fun! See ya around!
Ruby was a great game (: I had Sapphire, but my sister had Ruby so I got to see both sides of the spectrum on that one. Have you picked up Black or White yet?
I see your avatar is a Dewgong as well, pretty sweet Pokemon. That was one of the ones that I forgot on the Sporcle quiz for the original 151, but ;_; that's my fault. Doesn't mean it's not a great Pokemon. Hopefully you'll enjoy the community and have fun :3
Welcome to the forums, Malbalpokefan! Pokemon Sapphire was my first game and I loved it, so I guess that vouches for Ruby being good? No worries about not being a competitive battler, you don't have to be one to fit in here. Anyhow, have a fun and enjoyable stay here at PC, Malbalpokefan.
