NEW MEMBER LOUNGE
- now with Favorite Types!


Welcome to the community's New Member Lounge! In this thread, you're more than welcome to converse with your fellow members in an effort to try and get to know more new people! Not only will you meet other new members, but also community regulars that have been here for a while! It's basically a chat thread for all you new members to get to know other newbies like you, as well as for older users to make new acquaintances in. In this thread, the members are in focus, you and all the friends you are about to make!

You can make your first post here, but it is encouraged to create an introduction thread of your own, to be welcomed personally, though it is not mandatory. Feel free to do what you're most comfortable with! ♥

Please try not to ask for help about how the forums work here, as we have a very helpful section dedicated solely to helping people, called the Feedback & Support!



Favorite Types?


Yes! As you might know, there are 18 pokémon types. Most people have a favorite. When you are posting in this thread...
  • If you want, you can let us know your favorite type! And why? We all have different preferences and reasons~
  • You may also let us know what your favorite pokémon is! Is it from your favorite type, or not?






Get chatting, friends ( ͡°( ͡° ͜ʖ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ʖ ͡°) ͡°)

This is an interesting replacement for the New Users Hangout, but also taking elements from the Welcoming Eggs event of past.

Anyways, my fave type is Water and I'll start with Oshawott. Because you know, it's my mascot.

I have a suggestion for a smiley.
Spoiler:
:bed:


Speaking of suggestions, since we're going for a type teams kind of thing, you might want to provide links to some of the actual type clubs in Pokémon General. If someone joins who's a big fan of one type and participates in this thread, it might be nice to point them to the corresponding club.

Sure! If you know of any active typing clubs, you can post links to them here and I'll add them c: either now or when you see some member who has that fav type so you can give them direct suggestions~

Alright, I got links to all the existing clubs!
Fairy
Dark
Grass
Steel
Fighting
Flying
Water

To all new members - if you love a type that's not one of these, go ahead and make a thread for it in Pokémon General! Make sure you've read the rules of that section first, though.

Fire-type lovers unite!

I'm taking a Charmander. Charizard is my all-time favorite Pokémon, I've always loved dragons and fire, not to mention I was always a fan of it as my first Pokémon when I was a kid.

Any Electric type fans here? Let's be honest, how you can't love a type with just one weakness?
It doesn't beat Grass for me, but Electric is pretty great I agree. Magneton is both awesome looking and adorable.

Come on, where are my Dragon-type fans at? (;

Hello newcomers! People call me Matt or El! (: My partner is Dragonite (or in this case would be Dratini), which is from my favorite generation of Pokemon: 1st generation! If you have any questions about how the forum works or would like to chit chat with me, feel free to click my username to go to my profile and shoot me a message!

Nonetheless, happy posting around the forum! Dragon-type fans unite! :D

I can understand the appeal of Fire-type Pokemon, given how popular Fire starters tend to be. Anyways, I might do an intro to new users since Matt sorta did one.

Anyways, the name is Hikamaru! People often call me Hika for short, or by Nichole (which is my real name) and yeah I love mainly cute Pokemon, and as you saw my fave type is Water. I also have an affection for music and cute cartoon characters. I hope any of you new guys have fun enjoying our community and don't hesitate to ask me if you ever want to talk or have a little question or two.

Jumping on the bandwagon

I'm Rainbow! Most people call me that, but you can feel free to shorten it to Rain or call me Kyle if you like. My favorite Pokémon is actually Xatu, which isn't a Grass-type by any stretch of the imagination, but I'd still say I like Grass the best overall because most of my top 5 favorites are Grass-type. My favorite Grass Pokémon is Bellossom.

If you've made an introduction thread there's a good chance I've already said hi to you, as I try to welcome everyone who joins. Feel free to VM me if you'd like to chat, and I hope you have a fun time on PokéCommunity~!

Hey guys, I'm Shibui and I'm really excited to be part of the community.
My favorite type has always been Electric. My favorite pokémon of that type is Electabuzz (my first pokemon card).
So, do you want Elekid for your starter in this thread? You need to pick an unevolved Pokémon :)

I should introduce myself too! My name is Rika and I've been around PokéCommunity for over 8 years now. I've made so many great friends here and I love to make even more, so hit me up with a VM if you're ever bored <3 I mostly hang around the Roleplay Theatre section, because it's so much fun to write stories together with others. Try it out c;

ooo Sylveon <3 I love its shiny form! I'll put you up with Eevee for now (; Bring me 5 links to posts you make after this in Main Street and I'll evolve it!

Right here. *_*

Oh, that's a pity... Maybe you can have Swablu as a dragon anyways though! Since it evolves into dragon c: I put you up with Bagon now but you can change that if you want <3

Electric types! They pack awesome speed, awesome damage and awesome awesome.
Haha agreed, they are cool! Hmm. I guess I actually really like Electric types too. But Fire still are the hottest bunch!

Hello Rika, I somewhat impressed you managed to add the accent on the "e" in PokeCommunity. As I say that I don't accent it at all :^)

I'd pick Elekid because it looks like an egg with a plug on it and I like that it's bald :D

Hai, it's not like I've joined yesterday but I'm still pretty new here so yeah, I guess I'll join the fun xD

My favorite types are Ghost, Water and Poison but I'll pick Ghost since no one has picked it yet (which kinda suprises me, Ghosts, along with having spoopy Pokédex entries, are pretty badass, no?). Taking Phantump, the cutest ghost ever, as my partner.

I've made my introduction before but anyway, I'm Parasyct and I'm here because the community seems pretty friendly and helpful and it's nice to have a place where there's people with the same interests as me (pokimen in this case) to chat with, even though most of the times I prefer to just stay in the shadows reading threads instead of actually posting, since I'm kinda shy and all that, but I'll be around. Well, feel free to hit me up for anything, from trades to battles to whatever you feel like!
