    Well, for me it was steady and slow, I wanted more GBA ROMS, so I downloaded hacks thinking they were made by Nitendo, one day I saw RD - RoL(Ruby Destiny - Reign of Legends) which had a few bugs. Then I searched : Pokemon Ruby Destiny. I found out what is a "ROM Hack". After playing Shiny Gold my brother said "Why don't we try hacking?". So I searched "Pokemon Fire Red how to hack" and from somewhere I got A-Map. I already knew about PC then and made an account. Then I stumbled upon other hack tools and here I am, a Pokemon ROM Hacker!

              Someone showed me Pokemon Naranja, and not only did I think it was cool, but it sparked an interest in me to figure out how it was made. That lead me to wah, where I found tools and other hacks. Then I found this site, and, I am now!

                  Prepare yourself for a tragedy worse than Shakespeare, worse than Sophocles, and worse than the tragic Generation 5 of pokemon (i have reasons for hating it. but that's another story!)

                  So anyways! This goes way back to when i was only in 7th grade. I liked this girl, a LOT. Her name was Emily. Now keep that Emily information in your mind, as we use HM05 FLASHback!

                  It's 7th grade, in 7th period. My teacher sends us over to the next-door computer lab every other day, to do whatever we wanted! So, beginning of the school year, we played stupid Flash Games. Later on, I discovered ROMs when searching up "Play Pokemon online", cause we all loved Pokemon :D We downloaded roms and VBA off of 4shared, cause most other sites were blocked by the school servers. So every other day, we'd play pokemon roms. Well, my crush Emily was liking this other boy. He didnt go to my school, so i looked him up on youtube (fortunately for me, he had his name somewhere so i was able to find it). He made these videos for Emily, which were ROM videos where he had edited the text and made small towns, playing it out like a movie. He was flirting with Emily, through pokemon. When he talked to a certain character she said " name is Emily.." and then his said "wow, that's the most beautiful girl in the world! -blushes-" This made me ANGRY, yet SURPRISED at the same time. I had no idea how he did that. But i wasnt gonna message him and ask, because i now hated him. Well, i told my friends, nobody knew. A month or two later, when searching "Pokemon .gba" on 4shared, my friend came across "Pokemon Quartz.gba" OMFGWTF is that? I downloaded it too, an we played in amazement. Our jaws dropped. At first, we thought it was an unreleased version of pokemon, maybe a leak! But then Emily came over and said "Oh cool, you found a pokemon hack!" "uhh whaat?" i said. Then she told me "My boyfriend makes those, its called a ROM hack."
                  Heres what I did:
                  1. Rip out my heart, because now that guy is her BOYFRIEND..3
                  2. Search Pokemon ROM hack on google!

                  So, after ripping out a bloody heart, i went on to research this.
                  Many links came up, videos, tutorials, etc. and i got hooked! For years i've been doing this now, and i LOVE it!

                  -yet somehow, i only JUST NOW discovered PC. Everyone say welcome to lolwhet! :D

                    Well I have my own little Pokémon Forum RPG site (in danish though as that's where I'm from) and had a very creative region I made up and a good villainous team.
                    I was almost as good at mapping as I am today and had made a lot of okay cool maps. One day a guy from a grade under me sees me when I'm on the site. He liked pokémon too and asked me what it was.
                    I told him about the site and the region, and he told med he was able to make ROM hacks and make a pokémon game and asked me if I would like to make one with that region.
                    I said yes, of course and that is pretty much how I got to know it.
                    I'm still new and I'm making the entire region playable while some friends of mine help me out.

                      About 2 - 3 years ago I was looking around for an online Pokemon game, I stumbled onto this site, I looked around and found the hacks showcase. Then I quickly educated myself on what are ROMs and Emulators (at this point my mind was blown) I also learnt how to use IPS files and patchers, I tried to download a hack but I had to be a member, so this account is the result... My first hack I played by the way was Ruby Destiny.

                              I found a different hack for touhoumon. And at the time it was pretty much dead, with people asking for things to be added and no one doing anything. I came in and asked for a edit to the game and was, in a polite rephrase, told to go away and do it myself. So I went to google, found this place and started to download tools and teach myself.

                                    I should thank all the ROM hackers at Japan for introducing me to Touhoumon, and that was two years ago when I barely knew what PokeCommunity was. It was from a fellow friend and ROM hacker (y halo thar Aquamentis) that I got to know this place, so yeah, there's nothing special for me to say. I'm also striving to learn the essentials about ROM hacking, since I'm planning to work on one in the future, so please bear with this would-be ROM hacker.

                                      I was bored one day and searched "Mario funny" which lead me to many bloopers and such of the mario world. I learned about cheats from alot of these, and I was interesting in learning more, which lead me into emulators. I continued searching these videos for amusment, until one day I found the user now known as envoyofthesword. He did the standard stuff, but he hacked pokemon too! My mind was blown. I continued to search these, and learned what hacks were. I searched them for amusement, but before you knew it, I was hacking myself because I loved it so much.

                                        I was introduced to it by a good friend of mine online (who I haven't seen since 2009) and he showed me a lot of stuff. Showed me how to find certain things, as well as different formats and how they work properly. I started making rom maps since mid 2008, and I'm still continuing. In early 2009, the first level editor I was introduced to was Lunar Magic (for Super Mario World) and I learned a few things about that sort of hacking too, like music (which I actually learned first) as well as GFX and level editing.

                                          Through google and friends of course. I was always trying to hack or mod something and I kinda just fell into it one day.

                                            In 1999 0r 2000 when I searched in Yahoo for the English release date of Pokemon Gold and Silver and instead found Vida and PR's wonderful translations.

                                            Do I win?

                                              It was during the time when I was looking for a new Pokemon game on Youtube and discovered whole new games such as Pokemon rijonAdventures, Shiny Gold, Liquid Crystal, and the like. I was looking for a download link of Pokemon Reign of Legends which can be only found here. I realized that those weren't official ones until I got here in PC which had gotten me interested over making my own Pokemon game.

                                                I saw a Shiny Gold video on YouTube and from there, discovered this site.

                                                Only dabbled so far, and not done anything of note, but it's fun all the same!

                                                  It was a combination of me looking for pokemon roms and finding different mods and then my friend showed me an article with porkemon creepy black and we joined a fourm with it after we looked into modding the original cartridge and it would be too much work.

                                                    Mine was Pokemon Rijon Adventures.

                                                    I was on my laptop one day when my brother came in and gave me some normal Pokemon roms on a USB. He had gotten it from a friend, he had said. Anyway, in the Original Roms folder, I clicked on Fire Red. Whoever patched it, didn't change the name of the file, which I soon found out. Rijon was cool, and I loved it. Truth be told though, I really want Baro to make a hack where there are much more events in Quartz, and change Govolts to someother Pokemon, coz I wanna battle Ash with Peezgal! :D
