    Hiya, totally new to this forum but it looks AWESOME, I can't believe I'd never heard of it before!
    And Azelf emoticons = hell yes :P
    Thanks for including three gender options, not many sites do that. *virtual hugs*

    Uhhm.. basic facts!
    Name: Bunni (or Dan in real life)
    Age: 22
    First Game: Pokémon Yellow
    Fave games (main series): Pokémon Platinum + Alpha Sapphire
    Fave games (spinoffs): Pokémon Snap, Pokémon Colosseum
    Fave non-game thing: Pokémon Special/Adventures manga (the DP arc is the coolest!)
    Fave type: Ghost Pokémon, forever! Fairies recently gained a soft spot in my heart, but nothing will ever steal the crown of the dead. Such adorable zombs!
    Fave Pokémon: It's a tie between the Litwick and Pumpkaboo evolution lines. Fave non-ghost is Spritzee, the little deceptively-cutesy badass ^_^
    Fave part of Pokémon: The Pokémon....!! I just wanna hug them all, who cares about battling? Competitiveness level 0%! Losing is fun! I just like playing with friends and the winner isn't exactly an important topic, haha. So even though I've been playing since the series first got created, I'm hella casual and care more about the story and stuff. Fanfics, mangas, roleplay, whateverrrrrr~!
    Most of the time I will literally cheer you for beating me, I find it fun being outsmarted and learning new strategies for the future. Although I forget them easily so I'll never be strong. *shrug*
    Other infoes:
    I come from Wales (that's in the UK), I have kind of a cruddy life that I don't see any point in talking about, and I like Pokémon! Obviously! XD

    Hobbies of relevance!
    * I make sprites, and I really owe it to this series for getting me interested in that stuff when I was barely 11. I can say that all of my skills are just from having so much practise for so long!
    * I doodle really awful cartoon art which is hopefully at least slightly cute. Can't do anime style or anything, so I have fun stylizing the Pokémon designs into wild and loopy disney-esque things. Although it does look a bit weird that I still do them that way in sprites while I try and draw the people like their official versions...
    [​IMG]
    All fear the wide Rotom of chunky doom! (Also yeah for some reason my fave character in the entire series is the evil old guy from Team Galactic. Hooray for unpopular opinions!)
    * Working on learning how to use RPGMaker VX Ace so I can make Pokémon fangames, but I haven't made much progress yet. I still dunno how to do coding language, but maybe someday I'll succeed? Anyway I have a lot of fangame ideas even if I'm a long way away from making them happen.
    * I tend to enjoy being a punch-up localizer on translating games and stuff? (only as a hobby, I mean) At the moment my japanese skills are very bad and I can only understand some written words, so I've been practising just on rewriting existing translations to flow more naturally in english/show character-specific vocal quirks/replace jokes with equally funny ones/whatever is needed to kill the boredom of overly literal sentences, yo. I can't afford to take proper language classes so this is how I try and teach myself, I guess.

    Other things I like a lot, which ain't Pokémon:
    Digimon, Monster Rancher, Flint The Time Detective (tiniest fandom ever!), Shin Megami Tensei (DDS = best, Persona = second best), Steven Universe, Final Fantasy 9, Jade Cocoon 1+2, Mana Khemia.

    I also tend to talk WAY TOO MUCH, as you may have noticed~
    As a reward for reading all my nonsense, have a funny video!

    Welcome to LV! My first game was Blue Version, but Yellow was equally as awesome! Judging by the effort you put into your "debut post", I see a lot of potential in you. Hope you enjoy the forums and feel free to ask any questions at any given time!

    OR/AS fan?! Let me say you're awesome. <3 I really loved the Hoenn remakes, did the region so much justice.. should have around 300 hours of playtime in my game but I need to get back into it again. Been really lazy these last few weeks. :(

    That aside, big welcome to LV, Bunni! You have pretty awesome taste so hopefully you stick around here, yes? The community is just wonderful. Have fun!

    Haha, yes we shall share our hugs with the mons of the world! XD

    Yay!! I completely feel the same way, I especially love the personality development they gave for the members of Aqua and Magma. (My fave is Tabitha~)
    And don't worry, I know the feeling! I'm still only halfway through the game's story even though I got it when it came out. I got distracted by Pokémon contests and wonder trade!

    You're talking to the right person, MUAAHAHAHA! :D

    Yo, welcome! That's a great long intro, haha. Though they aren't my favorite, Ghost Pokémon are great! Second favorite actually, obvious bias is obvious. XD It's so cool you can do all those things, I'm nowhere near talented enough.

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