    Hello there, members of Lake Valor! I'm The Cynical Poet, though despite my name I'm not all that cynical, unless the situation calls for a proper critique. I'm not all that familiar with regular forum activity, though I've always wanted to be an active member of a forum. For those of you who frequent Smogon, you might recognize me from the XY Sprite Project , as I've contributed several Black/White styled sprites for Pokémon Showdown's XY/ORAS engine.

    Aside from Smogon, I've submitted other works to my personal DeviantArt page, as well as Mario Fan Games Galaxy. I've been a Pokémon fan ever since I was a child - probably around four years old. Aside from my Pokémon/Nintendo fandom, I'm currently in college aspiring to become a Biology/Ecology teacher. I bring this up because my love for biology stems from my love for learning and understanding biological evolution, which originated from, you guessed it, my love for Pokémon! So yeah, should all go as planned, I'll eventually become a nerdy biology teacher who will make obscure references to video games.

    Anyways, that should just about cover my short little autobiography. Special thanks to LVAchromatic for introducing me to Lake Valor!

    Hey! You want to be a Biology teacher? That's really cool, and that you got that from Pokémon is amazing as well! =D

    I hope to see you and some of your art around the forums! :>

    That's the plan thus far, haha. I've always loved looking at Pokémon from a more scientifically rooted standpoint, despite it ultimately being obscure and nonsensical at times. It's fun looking at Pokémon and seeing the connections and inspiration derived from real life creatures and possibly seeing how Pokémon could have evolved that way. :D

    Thank you! I hope so too! c:
    Anything works, haha. Whatever pops into your head first. And thank you! I'll keep that in mind! c:

    Spriters! Awesomepossum. I like the idea of spriting but hardly ever dabble in it personally, sadly.. want to get more into it again. Thinking of MS Paint and the memories attached to it sometimes make me just want to jump in and get to work, baha!

    Welcome to the lake and good to have you here Poet. <3 Have a splendid time and hope you'll consider sticking around for a long time.. we're a growing community here and something's always changing. That means it's hard to ever get bored.

    Looking forward to your contributions!

    Yo, welcome! I hope that whatever you do in the future you plan to make obscure video game references, haha. ;) It's pretty cool that Pokémon helped guide you into choosing what you want to do!

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask any of us Mentors or a staff member. I hope you enjoy the site!

    Haha, thank you! Ever since I was introduced to the internet, I've always loved spriting. Of course, back in those days my idea of spriting was recoloring a Sonic sprite and calling him an unoriginal name...but we don't speak of those times.

    Thanks a bunch! I'll always make obscure video game references; that's practically part of the reason I was born!

    I can see that someone already provided you the link to the gallery. I am sure that you will like using it :).
    Okay, talking about Lake Valor mmm, there are too much things to do, also we have contestes that you will like where you have to draw or show some of your talents, it is pretty interesting here. A useful info could be that If you ever need something you can talk with the staff members or the site mentors. Now, if you are interested in learn/improve in the competitive game you can talk with me or any of the other competitive mentors. I wish you luck and Welcome to Lake Valor!
