• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

    For more information, see this thread

Hi everyone! I'm Crystal Chaos! I've been prowling around the website for the past 5 years and finally decided to join the crowd. :D


Back when I was a wee child in 1998, I wanted a Nintendo 64 for Christmas because that's what everyone else had. Christmas day came and I was heartbroken to find that I got a stupid GameBoy with a stupid game called Pokemon Red. It's not what I wanted so I didn't touch it for a week. When I finally did, I never put it down. It became so addicting that I couldn't get enough and got the Yellow version as soon as it came out. Then Gen II came out and became my favorite generation to this date (thank the Lord for HGSS!!).

When the Pokemon hype died down after Gen II, I took a hiatus since I didn't want to be the only one to admit that I still loved and played Pokemon. Ruby/Sapphire came out and I forced myself to look the other way. But then Emerald came out and I just had to get it. The graphics, the music (something about those trumpets), two villainous teams, an epic battle between two legendaries and, of course, Steven Stone all contributed to pulling me back into the games. I didn't get to Gen IV until Platinum since I didn't have a DS until after it came out. But since then, I made sure to get as many main series games as I could.

My collection today includes Red, Yellow, Silver, Crystal, Emerald, LeafGreen, Platinum, HeartGold, SoulSilver, White, White 2, X, Y, all the Ranger games, all the mystery dungeon games and a few plush dolls lol. I also had Coliseum and XD at one point but they have mysteriously vanished into a void. >o<

I'm more of a casual gamer but recently, I've been getting into competitive battling and EV training my teams. Lucario's my favorite pokemon so watch out! :p

Sooooo yea! That's pretty much my Pokemon history in a nutshell. I also play Sonic, Kingdom Hearts, Kirby and the Mario and Luigi RPGs on the side. Pleasure meeting you all! Feel free to contact me or PM me at any time! :)

Hi, welcome to the forums :) You should check out the Battle Center section to talk about competitive battling and the Video Games and Technology section to discuss non Pokemon games, those seem like they might interest you :) I hope you have a great time here and feel free to ask a staff member if you need any help.

Welcome to the forums :)
I like your energetic opening post! Can we swap FC's? :D
Sorry, my Friend Safari is terrible, though :'(

Kingdom Hearts-- yes! I totally love that series<3
Dream Drop Distance was amazing, but I'm bummed that I don't have a PS3 any more to play the HD remasters :((
(Honestly, they should just put them on the Vita-- would love that!)

Whoops, I rambled there :p Feel free to message me anytime! >w<
