Hiya!

So, I got an email about this place and...god, I’m getting a bit nostalgic. I was a member here starting back in 2011 (I think?) under the username “giratinarulez23.” This was the first forum that I joined and I was welcome with open arms. I haven’t been in contact with a lot of people from the forum (or any, if I’m honest), and I’m not sure if people will remember me a whole lot, and I’m not quite sure how active I’ll be, but it’s nice to at least have a look around.

Suppose I should actually introduce myself as well. My name is Griffin, I’m 21, and I’m a bit of a dead beat, but I’ve been told I’m slightly funny and that I’m sorta nice. My first Pokémon game was Crystal, and my favorite is Platinum. Currently, my hobbies are watching anime, playing any number of video games, and working my butt off to pay my bills.

Again, good to be back, though not sure for how long and I look forward to possibly meeting old friends and maybe making new ones as well.

Wait a feckin' minute, I remember you!!
WHADDUP, WELCOME BACK!
I don't think we talked a whole lot, but I definitely remember your name.
I was EeveeLover404 or Royale - if those ring a bell.
Your name rings a bell, too, but I can’t exactly place it. Thanks for the welcome!

Ah, right, the old 157 joke. I honestly forgot about that bit. God, I was insufferable haha. Glad to see you Cleb, thanks for the welcome!

I'm a bit newer than some other people here (first joined in 2013, wasn't active the first year or so) but I'm glad we can meet now that you've returned! The name's Ben. I hope you'll find that these forums are still home to a community that will welcome you with open arms. My first and still favorite Pokemon game was HeartGold, which I think is a nice mix between Crystal and Platinum. Do you have any particular interests within the realm of Pokemon?

Oh my gosh, hi Kaity! Man, it’s been way too long. I’ll try my best to stick around, as long as life doesn’t keep me busy, and thanks so much for the welcome!

Good to meet you, Ben! Hoping this place could eventually be a second home like it was before. In regards to Pokemon, I’ve tried my hand at shiny collecting and at competitive battling and I still enjoy it, but now I’m more of a collector and casual player. Just beat Let’s Go Eevee a couple days ago. Also, HG/SS is real good fam

Hah, glad you think so. Turns out comp battling is one of my favorite things to do, so I'm always around if you want to get back into it. What sort of email was it that you got to bring you back here?

I appreciate the offer! I’ll take you up on that whenever I have a bit more free time. And the email was from Bonkenhi, or George. I was on the 4P forum after Marriland made the switch to Curse and spent some time there.

Damn, this e-mail's drawn a couple of familiar faces now! Glad to see you're well Griffin. :) I'm around and about but work's picked up lately so my appearances might be a bit brief! There's a Discord group too tho if you're keen- I'd love to catch up with you more soon. Enjoy the trip down memory lane... and don't worry about the 157 thing. Obviously all teasing on that front is in jest, I do fondly remember that post haha.

Nice to meet you! I wasn't around yet in 2011, so I don't think we've met. But I'm sure you'll enjoy this new site just as much!
