    I live in Hampton Roads so Maryland is a fair hike. I've met Morkula multiple times though.

      I live like 2 hours away, I live in Manhattan.

      Walking down the path I know. Banning Pokémon just because you don't know how to beat them is just plain wrong. It's like banning alcohol because it makes ugly people pretty.

      Most of the people I talk to live outside the UK so no, haven't really met anyone. Would be cool I guess!

        Anyone from London is more than welcome to meet me whenever they want, I'm always up for meeting people

        Okay here's a funny story. So me and my mates went to Paris at the end of last summer, and I ended up meeting this user from here called WonderGirl (who hadn't actually been active since 2011 at the time...I don't even remember how I got to know her) somehow and we spent that Saturday just hanging out and we got this really nice sweet beer-like thing at some bar, she was great
        I met her fror a few minutes later in the night but I don't entirely remember what circumstances

        So I gave my location on the battle server last night and it turns out one member lives like, a 5 minute train ride away from me in the adjacent suburb! That's within walking distance :0 I won't give their identity because I don't have permission but maybe we can meet sometime

        Oh, and Hikamaru lives about an hour away by train I believe, it's unlikely she would want to meet me though ^.^

        I have yet to meet a PC member in real life, but I was actually quite surprised at how many live in the Sydney area of Australia like myself. Notable members being Patchouli Knowledge, Aslan and O07_eleven, along with another guy I briefly interacted with called bradenm, and of course diab_low. I really miss that guy

        There's a small city out in Kansas by the name of Manhattan.

        Nope, never met anyone from PC/online in real life. But I've only been here for a little over a year, so I still don't know too many people.
        Anyway, I live in Arizona, and so far I haven't seen any users that live here. I don't travel much, so the chances of meeting a member in real life are way too slim for me.

        I've met Mr Cat Dog during his whirlwind tour of the East Coast. We were supposed to meet up again in November when he was in the area but he had plans with the friend he was visiting and I couldn't make it since I had to work.

        Other than that, I've seen CC several times - we have lunch together and hang out every so often (though it's been a few months) and even went to Kings Dominion one day last summer.

          Yeah, unfortunately I couldn't meet MCD either because the one day we could have done something he had plans u_u

          Nope! I'm sure people live close to me, but I've just never made plans to meet up with anyone >.>

              I met one a long long time ago that no longer visits PC, since then I haven't met anyone, I don't really talk to anyone from PC that lives anywhere close to me though. I used to but we just ended up not talking anymore.

                Hi, also new. I have yet to meet anyone else from Texas, much less Dallas. But I'm busy so even if I do find someone I probably won't have time to hang out for a while.

                  PC? Sadly no, online? I had one recently about 4 months ago. I've known him for 14 years in fact. He stopped by while heading to a wedding and I took him out for lunch drove him around town, even got in few games. It was short, but fun and plan to meet up again. Surreal would be the word I would use to describe the experience. I'm in Ottawa area; he's in Toronto area so weird how it took that long for us to meet. The time I was in Toronto he was sick so reasons like that contributed.

                    There aren't that many members from Europe, let alone Portugal.

                    So no, I doubt it

                        I don't really have the means to meet people at this point in time, but I do live in Colorado Springs (guess the state). Maybe later down the road I'll have such oppurtunities.

                        I think the staff member Went is from Spain, specifically Madrid, maybe you could bring your neighbour some delicious Portuguese food sometime! ^.^

                          Went moved to Argentina, which is quite a ways from Portugal.

                          I actually did meet someone from PC (and other forums), though she hasn't been active on PC for a few years now. We've known each other for over seven years now and talked to each other nearly every day as she bounced around the United States. Finally, she moved to about two hours away from where I am, so I planned a family trip up there to meet up with her. We walked around all day, as comfortable with each other face-to-face as we are on the computer.

                          Other than that, anyone else around me is too far away or too difficult for me to get to. (Though I could get to NYC, it's way more work than I can currently put in.)

                          I've met up with a friend from New Zealand who's been on PC/other forums, when she had a trip to Sydney. There were two meet ups, and the second sadly didn't go too well (other people were involved and stuff happened), but oh well, at least the first one was decent. Certainly would like to meet up with people I've only known online again.

                          In high school I met a couple other students in other grades who happened to be on PC too, but I had never talked to them before, so I don't feel that counts.
