Hello everyone!

I'm monandd, a 23yo Pokémon fan from somewhere in Latinamerica. I stumbled uppon the website & forum, and chose to join because... well, it's been too long since I've been involved in the Pokémon community (at least 8 years and under a different pseudonym), and I kinda miss that. I've also recently started (re)playing some Pokémon games, and it's been really fun!

If you want to know anything else, just ask. Hope to have a great time here!

Hi there, monandd! Welcome to the forums! Pokemon always makes for great community, regardless of how long you've been around. I noticed in another thread that your first game was Gold! Mine was actually Heartgold (I'm only 20 heh) but I love Typhlosion just the same! Could you tell?

I'd love to chat with you sometime about where you're from! As an aspiring Spanish speaker, I think it would be very nice to hear more about that.

Thanks! :) And yeah! I've actually thought about it for a while, but the fact that most Pokémon communities have left forums besides or have disappeared (at least the ones I remember from my teenage years) had stopped me until now.

I really like collecting and training my Pokémon! I'm not that into competitive battling, but it's really nice too. And I'm a big nerd for Pokémon "history", exploring the games' narrative as deep as I can. I'm an aspiring/on-the-works writer, so that aspect of Pokémon really interests me.

Thanks, and yay for Typhlosion! <3 And sure, let's chat some time! I'm from the lost-and-forgotten land of Venezuela (hopefully moving somewhere else after I graduate from college). I can help you with your Spanish any time you want!

Thank you both for your welcome <3

Hey, I'm very much the same! Although in my case, I'm interested in how a Pokémon world would theoretically work as a society and how it developed within the lore. What are the politics, what are the rules, what are the environmental + other challenges this region faces, who leads this region? At some point I do want to hammer out and get my thoughts on to a screen, so hearing you're interested in the historical narratives and whatnot has motivated me some more!

That's another thing we'd have in common! Being a Pokémon fan and and seeing a fanfiction event on this site several years ago was what first inspired me to try writing.

monandd, ¿cuál tema estudias en la universidad? ¿Sabes adonde querrías ir después?

Nicee! I'm really, really excited about all that you mention :D And these days I've been (re-)reading on some Pokémon articles and stuff I had saved, about the lore and narrative details. Might start a thread or two on the forums soon, if I can order my thoughts a bit.

¡Estudio Ciencias e Ingeniería de la Computación! Después de graduarme, me gustaría ir a Estados Unidos o Europa, aunque no estoy seguro.

Hi monandd, so nice to meet you. I'm from India, and I'm learning Spanish, and only today I started a new save file of Sword in Spanish (that's how I perfected my English as an 8 y/o, playing Pokemon games haha, so I hope it works with Spanish, too), so what a coincidence that I come across your introduction today!

I love reading and sometimes even writing too, but I've always felt the mainline Pokemon lore leaves something to be desired. At some points, it even feels completely ridiculous to me. I just feel like there is so much sci-fi-ish potential in the world of Pokemon but it just goes downhill every Gen. I mean, Chairman Rose waking Eternatus so people thousands of years later would still have energy? More than a bit far-fetched, I'd say. But I'd love to hear your thoughts on the Pokemon stories in general! :D

@Gigarchomp99 Hi! In most places on the forums it's okay to post in older threads, but since this is an Introduce Yourself thread that hasn't seen activity for over four months, it counts as thread revival here and goes against Rule #5. The topic of Pokemon lore sounds like it could be worth its own thread, so why not take a look in Pokemon General? You can see if a thread like that exists or perhaps make one yourself!
