Hi there,

Well, what to say? I started playing pokémon back when Red and Blue were released, and played those a lot until Gold and Silver came out - until my Silver version got nicked and that discouraged me and I stopped playing. I picked pokémon up again when Diamond and Pearl were released, and then moved onto HeartGold when HG and SS were released in the UK. I generally play the games quite slowly because I spend a lot of time looking for specific pokémon, not satisfied with just waiting until I stumble upon it by mere chance. My latest achievement is catching a shiny Absol on Platinum this afternoon, which I thought was pretty cool.

About my nickname - my passion outside of computer games is languages, and I know a fair few pretty well - and when I finish my Russian degree I will use Pokémon and various other games etc to learn Japanese!

Ты говоришь по-русски? Я начал учить русский язык года четыре тому назад :]

Thank you for the welcome. If you wanted to learn some I'd be happy to help you with it or recommend books or so.

Приветствовать!

Nice catch, I have a shiny Absol as well. If I remember correctly they are red coloured which is pretty neat.

It's great to see a fan from the original Red and Blue days, but it really is too bad that you missed out on the Generation III games as they were great.

I am going to try and learn some Japanese as well because it would be very useful for the foreign games and anime that I play that is in Japanese. I hope it isn't too hard to learn.

Thanks, and enjoy your time here.
