    Hey I'm Viktron, I'm 18 and studying comp sci in college right now. Quarter's shaping up to suck so not sure how much time I'm gonna have for this, maybe I'll be on Discord more often?

    Anyways yeah, Pokémon was a pretty good part of my childhood between the show and the games. Not really a battler cause I suck at it, but I do enjoy shiny hunting and playing more casually. Actually replaying Explorers of Sky with my girlfriend right now! Probably our favorite game in the entire franchise. I guess I'm more of a general Nintendo fan now, but Pokémon was my first experience with the company, so it's pretty special.

    Overall favorite Pokémon is pretty hard for me, so for a few, I'm a big fan of Ampharos, Empoleon, Glaceon, Azelf (hey!), Glalie, Frosslass, and Primarina. Chosen mostly between their sprites (+shiny sprites!) and how I've used them in battle. Shiny mega Ampharos especially. He's majestic!

    I'm kind of a designer/engineer dude guy on the side of my CS stuff? I work in a makerspace so I'm around fabrication and machining equipment (3d printers, laser cutters, full woodshop!!) pretty much daily, and part of my job is teaching users how to do cool stuff with our cool stuff, but uh, I pretty much have no training in the design department except like one class in high school. I definitely need to start drawing, at least; pretty good with CAD, Photoshop, and Illustrator, but wow my sketches are garbage. I do have a project portfolio online but I'd like to keep it more private (sorry, it's got a lot of personal info on it!) but I'll definitely share if I make anything Pokémon related I think is cool!

    tl;dr I like Pokémon! I make things! I will make you things!

    Sorry for the long winded intro!

    Hey hey! Amph is a good choice! Definitely have a fair deal of experience with makerspace through my college as well. Not a CS major (took a CS class and though I'm doing well, just not my forte). I do LOVE design though and spend most of my waking hour on PS and AI so maybe we can swap stories and learn from each other (though more likely I'll be doing the learning from you). I have some portfolios in the Art Corner section that have some of my Illustrator and Photoshop works though they have't been updated in a while. Nonethless, I'm super glad to see another person who's into the Adobe suite (and other design software) so can't wait to get to know you more.

    The site is pretty intuitive if you've used forum boards and I see you've discovered our Discord as well. Sounds like you're set to go but in the off chance you have questions, don't hesitate to shoot me a message on either platform and I'll do my best to take care of ya :D

    Welcome to the Lake! I hope you have a great time here!
    I'd definitely want to see some of your work someday!
    And since you like Azelf, that'll net you a better first impression on Professor Azelf right off the start.

    Welcome to the lake! And a long intro is a good intro. It looks like you are a shiny hunter with a penchant for water types. Have you met @Bayporeon yet? It sounds like you have something in common. As for art, if you ever need some art resources, hit me up! Getting to a point where you are satisfied with your own art is a constant journey, and I would be happy to be your helpful peer.

    Thanks for the welcomes! Don't know if there's an easy way to reply to everything bit by bit but, yep, that's Tom Nook and Feh taking a money bath in everyone's hard earned cash : ) and water is one of my favorite types! Also like ice and electric

    Thanks again for the reception!
