Hi, looking to meet some good people.

    Hello everyone i am new but a Veteran Fan of Pokemon. I joined this site a few months ago and gain a few friends but things seem to be going rather slow so i thought i'll put myself out there. I guess my goal is to meet other fans that i could become good friends with. I like to be active and if anyone out there with some spare time could get me going would be very much appreciated. I am not as hardcore as i used to be about it when i was younger but i still enjoy the games and Manga (Pokemon Adventures). I guess i'll start by shareing alittle about myself.

    When Pokemon Red and Blue Version came out around 1998 i was around 12 years old of age and my younger brother knew much more about it then i did at the time. Only thing i knew was the old first pokemon commercials shown on TV, one about a bus cramming the creatures all together and one about a vacuum cleaner sucking them all up. Safe to say none of thoses told me anything about the game and just made me rather confused. None the less, my brother kept telling me about it and soon enough my friends caught on and kept telling the both of us to get the game. So at christmas 1998, both me and my brother gotten Gameboy Colors and i got Pokemon Blue while my brother got Pokemon Red. Like i said befor, i did'nt know much about the game except for what my friends told me and that was i could catch creatures and used to them fight against their will (just kidding). I did'nt evern know about the 8 Badges and the Pokemon League untill i started playing, thats right ! thoses NPC's who explained the game actually were useful to someone. More to the point, me and my brother both were so hooked that i remember many sleepless nights of both of us playing the games at the same time in our buck beds and like many kids we did'nt understood the concept of leveling up a TEAM. Sure we caught plenty of pokemon but we only really trained our starter, mine being Charizard and my brother being Blastoise. Safe to say you could get away with it untill we both reached the Elite 4 and got our butts kicked, we could reach to Lance but could barely beat his Dragonite and his stupid Hyper Beams. To make it worse, when we did and thought we beaten the League, we then got laughed at in the face when Blue/Green comes out of no where and battles us with our already damaged starters. Some might see this as cheap but i will always remember this as something special between me and my brother and one of my better memorys of him (we dont see each other often). Because we both could'nt defeat Blue/Green by ourselfs, we bought a link cable and did our very first trade, and with Combine Power of Charizard and Blastoise we were able to defeat the League and progress further in the game at the same time. It was awesome, it felt like a real adventure and two brothers sharing their might to overcome a greater power, yea it sounds cheesey but it brought me closer to my family with out evern knowing it. Afterwards, every kid in our town and school had the game and when the both of us gotten better, we restarted our files and made a more legit team of pokemon. Evern after the league we played for hours untill both me and my brother finally caught all 151 pokemon (Got Mew from a trade). Like the rest of you, i was pretty upset when all you got was a Congrats Card..... gah, still upsets me. Sadly my brother got bored of it by the time Gold and Silver came out but luckily most of my friends were still hooked and when i finally got my silver version from my mother from the store i was in Heaven onces again. By far it was the best, Everything was new but still felt the same, Color was added and a bunch of new pokemon and things were put into the game to make it feel more real. New Gyms were added to cover the types that were'nt placed in Kanto and safe to say i had alot of fun playing the game. What really got me hooked was the suprise SS Anne Ticket that Prof. Elm gave you after you beaten the Elite Four. I myself did'nt knew anything about the 2nd half of the game so it came to a big suprise when i found out i could go back to Kanto and rebattle the older 8 Gyms. Evern bigger shock and more likely the greatest moment i had in any of the pokemon games was at Mt.Silver. After gaining the 16 badges and Oak telling me to go to Mt.Silver i assume i was going to fight some sort of legendly pokemon. Little did i know that i would of fought against Trainer Red and his super high level pokemon. It was truely a great end to the game and till this day is is my favorite version of Pokemon. Sadly by the time 3rd Gen came out, i was sorta out of the craze and got rather tired of Pokemon. I bought Ruby not too long after it came out but it did'nt felt the same, Gold and Silver was hard to top and i felt it simply was'nt as good andd got bored with it quickly. After that i was'nt into Pokemon for a very long time, i was a big fan of the anime untill after Johto Seasons but soon i lost respect for Ash and Misty left and too many things changed all at onces and the stuff that was brought in was just the same thing. It was'nt til recently just this year that a friend of mine bought me Pokemon Platinum and i was having and still is having some issues in life at the moment. I gave it a shot and found myself enjoying it so much more then i did with the 3rd Gen and after hearing Gold and Silver being Remade on the DS i felt it was time to get back into things and see what Nintendo is going to offer me onces again.

    Dear Lord that was a long story, i guess i am just that bored. Thanks to anyone who read it and i hope i can meet alot more people here.If anyone knows any really good clubs for me to join please advice me.

    Ghosts are pretty cool too, i guess we seem to like the Sinster kinds of pokemon. I remember getting Yellow Version when it came out, i enjoyed it since it was more based on the anime. When i got to the Elite 4 tho, someone stoled it and never gotten the chance to beat it, it was a rather bad day.

    Also Shiny Umbreon rocks, i always have him around, i got a Shiny Darkrai but i'll be honest, i like the none one better, the black makes him look cool but when he ends up Purple kinda takes away the fear factor. Purple is more suited for Ghost Types anyway.

    Lol they make him from the Grim Reaper to a prissy gay guy. It's kinda funny actually :p He's so feirce and all that but then if he's shiny, he looks like a fool!

    @ Dan The Poke Man
    Why thank you, i think so too, i am happy someone enjoyed that long story, i did'nt think it would be such a length but i enjoyed writing it. Also i tried looking for the HG/SS Sprite for Shiny Umbreon when i first joined but could'nt find it. I assumed the site did'nt had it yet and gave up and have'nt looked back since. I'll try looking for it now.
