• Do you use Discord? Do you like catching Pokémon? Have you heard of Elaria? If you answered yes to the first two, you should give it a go! Professor Tilia is always looking for new people to help fill her Living Dex!

    It just so happens she is hosting an event right now, where you could even get your own Pokémon form added into the game! Details can be found over in the Elaria discord server, right here
  • All content from the former Roleplaying Games forum has been merged into the Writers' Workshop forum. You can find more information in this thread.

    We hope to see you roleplaying away soon!

    Hey all! We wanted to let everyone know that the Pokemon GO section has officially been merged into the Pokemon Video Games section. You can find more information in this thread.

Hey everybody! Name's Chris, you can call me by my real name or my screen name, I don't care much either way. I've been playing Pokémon for a long time, but have never been an active part of the community. Right now I'm rotating through Yellow, Silver, and Crystal. I own a GBA with no intention of getting a DS, meaning I could potentially start playing the Gen3 games but am currently on Gen1/Gen2 (Gen3 can't trade with the earlier two so why upgrade?)

I've never completed a Pokédex, in fact I don't think it's possible to do in Gen1 and Gen2 without cheating at this point (event pokémon..*grumble*) and I'm squeamish about utilizing glitches.

Pokémon aside, I play a lot of PS3 (never was a huge Nintendo gamer in all honesty) and I like to write for fun. I recently self-published a book using Amazon Createspace with the intention of getting a little recognition behind my name while I work on my larger projects. For information, see my signature.

Welcome ^_^
my my, someone's in retro ^_^
Thank! ^_^
I've been accused of living in the past more than once. You should see me on formal occasion -- my idea of dressing nice brings to mind a '20s-era gangster XD

Welcome Chris! Good to see someone who's not obsessed with Gen3/4 once.

I used to have them all XD RBYGSC I mean. I can't even remember what happened to my old teal GBC and all my games (teal was the best color btw, teal pwns!) but there was a stint of a couple of years where I didn't play at all. Then I wanted to play again all of a sudden, turns out a friend of my brother's had a GBA and Pokémon Crystal, he sold me both for $20. I picked up Yellow and Silver on Amazon (both had new batteries installed, guaranteed to save for years to come) and I'm trying to find another GBA for cheap so I can trade with myself.

You're in luck; not only am I not obsessed, I don't even know anything about them! XD

Goody, another Gen. II worshipper! Although you may want to consider picking up a DS- they're releasing remakes-"HeartGold" and "SoulSilver", with shiny new updated 3-D graphics. I'm getting them the second they come out here in America! Weee!

Yeah, but DS doesn't accept GB/GBC cartridges. I'm not gonna buy a new handheld for one game (potentially 2, I think there's an FF3 remake on DS...) if it won't run all my old ones too XD

That's understandable. I'm one of those people who loves and has played every game and Generation, I just lean heavily towards Gold, Silver and Crystal. Nostalgia...
