    So which other message boards/forums are your favorites?

    It would be cool to hear...since I like having somewhere to post casually.

      This was it, and Reddit too but I rarely visit Reddit anymore.

      Why is PokeCommunity shutting down?

        In the "feedback and support" section you can find most people discussing it.

        I don't like Reddit too much. They have a big mob mentality, especially when it comes to downvoting people.

        I have accounts on a couple of other forums, but the only one I really ever frequent besides this one is Smashboards.

          Only ones I ever go to are this one and My Little Game Dev...which is pretty much super dead, unless you count like a few chatrooms for it or something. Said few chatrooms...two died and there's a third one which I haven't visited for a while now. I did check out a forum based on the Nasuverse (i.e. Fate/stay night, Tsukihime, Garden of Sinners/Kara no Kyoukai, all that good stuff) for a little bit, but I haven't register for it.

          EDIT: Oh right! I also dabbled with the Nuzlocke Fourms. But that was a very, very, very, VERY LONG time ago. I remember doing a Nuzlocke there before...but then I stopped. Don't think I'll ever be able to update said Nuzlocke, since the data for it died alongside my old computer.

                  I remember Smashboards

                  Used to browse it sometimes, but never did make an account.

                    I have an account on lots of other forums, mostly anime and gaming related. But I'm only active on OTK (a love live forum) and Bulbagarden, the latter of which I'm a mod on.

                    None, really. It's become hard to find interesting forums nowadays.

                    Smashboards still going strong? I've heard Smash is going through some sort of a low currently due to circumstances.

                    Yeah it's still going alright. Not as well as it used to be though--character boards are dead as psyduck, Discord was not good for them. Bayonetta has driven a handful of people away. But it still breathes and doesn't look like it's about to die.

                        I've been on a tiny forum owned by a friend for about 4 years now, the name's changed three times (and it's been rebooted 3-4 times) but right now it's called The Artist Zone. It used to be Pokemon-specific mostly in its old days but now it's just general fandom and stories/art.

                        Otherwise I've been on GameFAQs if that counts, lurking on the Ultra-Sun board. It's full of trolls and overrun by alts heheh.
                        It's horrible but addictive. I don't recommend checking it out if you're not already involved. It'll ruin your life.

                        art/creative forums are cute! I hope you will continue making good memories there =)

                        uhh I used to be active on Lake Valor but didn't have much time to split between two forums, so I've not been going there as much. Back in the golden days of forums I'd be active on sooo many though, most notably Ever Grande City, Petalburg Woods, and Bulbagarden among others lol. Pokémon forums were my thing. Not too into other types of forums tho, so you'd never really see me elsewhere. atm it's mostly just PC.

                          Thanks :) We've been through rough patches (because even forums with 100-200 members top have drama) but I've made some great friends there :3

                          So many people tried to recruit me to Lake Valor lol but I always thought it was way too big and it overwhelmed me haha. This place is big too but I'm already getting a good atmosphere with how nice people seem to be ^^

                          So many people tried to recruit me to Lake Valor lol but I always thought it was way too big and it overwhelmed me haha. This place is big too but I'm already getting a good atmosphere with how nice people seem to be ^^
                          You think so? imo LV is really small but then again I've been on forums like PC for years lol, which is gigantic in comparison. LV has a rather small active member count but the people who do stick around are consistent and dedicated, so that's probably why it seems bigger than it actually is?

                          & yeah forum issues seem unavoidable wherever you go. /= People's mindsets clash, but I think ultimately they all have their own views on how to improve the place they care about, so that's why things end up that way haha.

                          oh and since people are bringing up Reddit....I browse the subreddit for where I live several times a day, especially when I'm at work with nothing to do. =p Don't involve myself much in the actual discussion (98% lurker ya) but it's very interesting to browse and see all the discussions I could relate to, since it's my current home.

                            I used to go to Azurilland (Marriland) everyday, which was the main reason why I didn't have much time for PC. I still visit it sometimes, but mainly when someone is asking me for input.

                            However, I've decided to commit to PC now since the atmosphere here just makes me feel warm inside. The recent series of events have convinced me that there is great unity within a good portion of the community here, and I appreciate that.

                              I'm on Lake Valor and I love that place to bits. Great site for Pokemon fans with a lot of cool features!

It used to be Pokemon-specific mostly in its old days but now it's just general fandom and stories/art.

                                Otherwise I've been on GameFAQs if that counts, lurking on the Ultra-Sun board. It's full of trolls and overrun by alts heheh.
                                It's horrible but addictive. I don't recommend checking it out if you're not already involved. It'll ruin your life.
                                I used GameFaqs for a few months and even posted on the Sun board a bit. Some people would post only to troll, but it was easy to identify.
                                ...

                                I went and checked the Ultra Sun board, and I don't remember it being this bad.

                                  Yeah Ultra Sun board is much much worse than the Sun board used to be. Everyone flames everyone (although they don't get modded half the time though I got warned for calling someone an asshole for picking on another user) and generally... It's best to avoid it.

                                  Advice to anyone who's curious about the board- Don't get involved. Especially if you like gen 5 at all because they will endlessly flame you and call you an abortion without getting modded.
