Yea, I restarted about a month ago, I haven't played for a while, I'm close to Lenora.
My team is:
Bast the Shiny Female Purrloin
Mordecai the Male Servine
Marlon the Panpour(yes, I named him after that... guy... in B2W2.)
I'll get Joltik and Darumaka later, don't know which flying type to get. And I'm pretty happy about my Purrloin its my first Shiny ever(also random) not counting Red Gyarados.
You can generally find people by clicking on "Advanced Search" near the top right corner of the page, and typing their user name in the user name box and clicking 'Search.' It'll bring you to a message or post they've made, and you can get to their user page that way.
Also, no offense, but I'm trying to cut down on my friends here, limiting to people I really know. Nothing personal. ^_^
If you want, you can PM Profesco or Wulava and ask them where you might be able to ask such a question. If you ask a mod if you can make a thread and they say yes, you won't get a strike for making one.
