I just wanted to search for an active Pokémon community since the dissolution of Pokémon Safari ( actually, one of the best Pokémon fansites in Spanish, but it got disbanded because Nintendo wanted to close the site for apparently "using" illegal software ).
i was looking for pokemon events to find out what they were when i found the site and i liked it but the next day i forgot it's name than several months later i found the site again started going to it regularly
I googled pokemon web sites and one of the options was Serebii so i clicked it i used the website alot to help with my games, i lurked the forims for the longest time before registering. Its one of the best sites ive been too. I check the news daily. Its the first website i go to everytime i go on the net everyday.
I ended up on Serebii chat because more than anything else I wanted a charmander on my Pokemon Diamond version....carried on trading there for a few weeks, until some chappie invited me to join his forum league on chat. I obliged by signing up to Serebii, and whilst his league lasted about a week, the league I made myself soon after lasted over a year, and I've had no reason to leave.
I was searching for info on Pokemon Platinum (never did end up buying it ). I was pleasantly surprised to find out so many people like Pokemon still.
And then I found fanfiction after deciding to lurk in the forums. I eventually registered, and now I'm here probably annoying all of you having a great time!
I joined the forums this year, but I've used the website since like 2007 to find out stuff about pokemon games and such, how it happened I was just googling for info on how to catch pokemon in Emerald or something.
