    Hello. Touymato speaking, returning to Lake Valor.
    Looking back at my introduction thread, I was very nervous, due to me being new here. Till this day, I'm very timid and nervous, even if it has been a while since I've been here.

    I'm an INFJ. Truthfully, I don't like being around people. I have a hard time "breaking out of my shell", due to me fearing that others would judge me for being different. And I'm forced to make a fool out of people that I don't even know.

    However, I joined a long time ago, because someone said that this community was friendly. So, I'm going to give it a shot, due to my first Pokémon game being: Pokémon Black. Yes. I know. It's not Gen 1 or 2. We had to start somewhere, right? I really hope I can give this place another shot. Friendly faces around here. Hope this thread doesn't get lock, due to this not being in the right place. And I really hope nobody got bored reading this long essay.

    Gen V is a very based entry point to the franchise, and I'm sure no one will give you flack for that one.

    Anyway, welcome. Nice to see you here, and coming from someone who personally has a spotty track record of sticking around, I hope you're able to make some good memories and friends while you're here!

    Thanks. Only reason why I say that is the genwunners that were complaining about Gen V, saying that: "Oh my god, an Ice-Cream cone as a Pokémon!? Game Freak is getting lazy, guys!" And the fact that most would give flack, due to someone being late to the franchise, and not entering Gen 1 from the start.

    I really hope so. I had some good memories when I was new. I was very nervous and excited at the same time. Although I do miss my old friends very badly here. Myrrth's gone. BNator aka: Brice is gone. And even a close one that I knew is now busy. Which I totally understand. Nobody wants to be seeing a screen 24/7. Hence why I wasn't around here. And it had the fact that I lost muse for Pokémon as a whole. I really hope I can find people just my old folks that I was close with, despite me being introverted in nature.

    yo i started with ORAS, dw lol

    also genwunners who complain about newer pokémon while ignoring stuff like "literally just a bird" or "a pile of sludge" that gen 1 has are extremely annoying

    Hello, welcome to LV! I don't know when exactly you joined since I think it was before I was even on the site, but it definitely still is very friendly.

    Just to start more conversation - what is your favorite and least favorite aspect of the main series?

    A friend of mine that I knew for a long time recommended me this site.
    I really don't have a favorite or least favorite. I really don't know. Apologies for that noobish response.

    No worries!

    Instead I'll ask - what's your favorite Pokémon and why?

    Chandelure. I really like it's design and it's dex entry, on were it lures people.
    Competitively: It has a niece on were if you put it in a sun team, it would put dents into people's teams.
    I really hope that was a good response. I have a hard time explaining things.

    Heya, nice to meet ya! Gen V is pretty good from what I've heard, and don't worry there's no "correct" entry to Pokémon. Hope you have a good time round the Lake!

    I will. It's going to take a while to get to Level 2.
    I gotta go to the Help section, to see how I can level up faster.

    EDIT: Lol. I got to Level 2.
    Anyways, I really hope I can have a good time. Even though, I do miss my old folks.

    Thanks.
    Unfortunately, I didn't requested one, so I made my own.

    Welcome back fellow INF! I am a mediator (INFP) myself so I get you for the shy personality stuff. Don't worry about getting into Pokémon later on, happens more often than you would think. Plus Gen 5 tends to be on the high end of people's favorite lists so I think it was a great time to get into it.

    As for leveling up simply posting is what gets you there, keep in mind the Games Room doesn't count towards post count and posts deleted for being spam etc are also going to take away from leveling. If you have any questions about the site feel free to PM me or any of the other folks with blue names :D

    Someone who actually gets my shy personality. I've been like that. Ever since I was born.
    Most people would assume that I'm an "extrovert", just because I "talk a lot", while having a circle of people that I know. When in reality, it's far from the truth. I only have those people, because I rather want to make friends, than enemies. lord knows how many i now have.

    Yes. I've noticed when I was posting in the Games Room. When I first saw that, I was like:
    "Damn. I'm not leveling up." lol.

    It's good to have you back! There aren't a ton of active users here that have been around since the first couple of generations, tbh. You'll find a lot of Gen V lovers here. I hope to see you around!
