    Hi, everyone! //waves//

    So - to start out with, my first game was Emerald, and I used to utterly suck at it. I believe the one and only time I've ever gotten around to fighting and defeating the League is when I decided to run a Nuzlocke trial in late 2014. Not very long ago, yes, but I blame it on me being distracted by the newer games.

    I think I've gotten much better by now, haha. In any case, competitive battling has recently caught my attention, and I bred my very first 6IV Pokémon a couple months ago; Venomoth, because reasons. Now I'm just randomly going whatever has my fancy, so I'm not very seriously into it (partially due to lack of time), but doing it just has a feeling of accomplishment.

    I'm an artist and a writer, although procrastination is definitely my strongest suit, unfortunately.

    On the non-Pokémon side, I'm a competitive rhythmic gymnast and currently working through the tedious years high school.

    It's nice to meet you all, and I hope to see you around~

    Hi Starlight!! (I hope it's okay if I call you that :sweat:) Welcome to Lake Valor!! =D

    If you ever need help on competitive battles, you're free to ask our Competitive Mentors. =3 We also have a forum for those who like to talk about competitive battles in the Competitive Discussion if you're interested. Why don't you show us some of your art skills in the Artist's Loft. For writing, you can do the same in the Literature Library. =)
    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me or any of the other mentors (especially competitive mentors x3) or staff members. We'll be happy to help you. ;)

    I hope you have fun in LV!! :)

    Because reasons indeed! Who needs a reason to breed a Pokémon you like? Or maybe a Pokémon that you felt "call out" to you at that particular moment. That's what makes the franchise fun and hard to put down. :'3 Welcome, Starlight! I just love your avatar.. the sheep Pokémon are precious, especially Flaaffy.

    Battling is loads of fun but I'm awful at it personally, paha. I prefer random battles since it's always exciting not knowing what you'll be using. Definitely expect to learn a lot about battling here with how many knowledgeable battlers we have so you're in pretty good hands. ^_^ See you around!

    Its nice to meet you Starlight, I'm really glad you were able to join LV. n-n If you have an interest in competitive battling be sure to check out the Global Terminal, Showdown Server, and the League forum. In the Global Terminal you can request or trade competitively bred Pokémon and discuss all things competitive. On the showdown server you can test out any Pokémon of your liking and build teams while also chatting with fellow members. In the league forum you can test out your skills in battling and even challenge gym leaders for badges on the forums! If you have any further questions, feel free to contact a mentor or staff member for help. I hope you enjoy your stay! :)

    Emerald was my favorite game before ORAS haha.
