Oh few this place is still alive. And MetalSonic is still here to, thank goodness for that.
Hey guys, guess who's finally getting back into Pokemon after, like, the longest hiatus ever?
I see I was kicked out from inactivity. I figured that'd happen. Rule 11 says I should get to keep all of my battles points if I rejoin, but I only had 8 anyway, so I don't care about losing them. I've been in the mood for a fresh start for some time now.

I'm pretty rusty these days, but I have years of experience behind me. I actually started competitive Pokemon in elementary school of all times, and I played it all the way through middle school and my freshman year of high school. To put that in perspective, I'm heading off to college now.
To those of you who remember me, I had a lot of activity issues as Pokemon started to slip away from my interest. I couldn't bring myself to play it competitively anymore. Eventually I just stopped coming to this thread altogether. But now I'm back, and I'm going to be here for a while, and I'm extremely confident I'm going to be able to remain active now.
You see, a couple months ago, my 3DS broke from water damage. That wouldn't be a huge problem, but bought both Pokemon Y and Alpha Sapphire digitally, and when your 3DS can't work, you can't save any of it's save data. My entire collection of pokemon, gone in less then a day. But I didn't take it so badly. Sun and Moon is coming just around the corner, and I've challenged myself to obtain one of each pokemon, entirely from scratch, before the game launches in November. I started on Friday, and I'm on a roll. In just a couple days, I already caught 111 individual species of Pokemon - that's roughly 15%. Then when Sun and Moon finally release, I'm going to catch every new pokemon there. Once I'm done with that, I'll almost certainly get back into competitive pokemon. And every time a new piece of Pokemon Sun/Moon news drops, I'll be sure to post here. I've already been checking the main site for news daily.
I know I've had some serious activity issues in the past, but that's because I was trying to force myself to be active during a time when pokemon was slipping away from my interest. Now it's been on the front of my mind for weeks, and I can guarantee you at least half a year of activity. I've got a pokemon-catching marathon ahead of me, and I'd love to have a place to post about it. I'll definitely be active for at least half a year, minimum.
Oh, and btw, I never completed my national dex, even before I lost all my data. I gave up years ago. But hey, I'm on such a roll now, I can't help but feel optimistic.
