Yeah, I was a newbie once, a long time ago, and I sorta lurked a bit before posting, but now I'm a half-leader of a clan, my patience paid off. ^_^ (ugh, I'm terrible at spelling...and I'm 16, I should know how to spell by now >.<)
Hm? My favorite Pokemon is Swoobat, but I chose Gallade because Swoobat didn't get a new avatar.
P.S. I know you're new here, but a lot of people find the "PS" message at the bottom of your VMs annoying, if you want to do that, you can put it in your signature, I hope you don't take offense, I'm just trying to help.
