Pokemon websites I visit over the last 10 years

Serebii: The first pokemon site I ever really visited. It has the biggest community of users, both good and bad, but I've visited the site since 2002/2003 and never had a problem. I enjoy posting there because it has the largest community of fans.
Bulbagarden: Very good community and Bulbapedia is informative. I've been here since 2002 as a lurker but didn't come up with my current username since 2005. A lot of the original community is gone now but I guess that is to be expected out of a long running franchise where people grow up and move on from the Pokemon franchise. I wish some of the older guys could come back, but alas, everyone, "grew up" so to speak.
Dogasu's backpack: What more can be said about a site that's mainly episode comparisons? Dogasu is the first member of the Pokemon fandom I really took interest in since all the dub edits intrigued me back when the 4kids era was going on. I've visited the site for nearly 10 years, hopefully I can continue for the next 10. Dogasu himself is also great and I find myself agreeing with his opinions on the anime more often than not.
Pokecommunity: Meh. I never really bothered with this place because I was always on Serebii/Bulbagarden. From what I've seen I'll have to say, "no" and leave it at that.
Pokebeach: Eh, nothing special. I'm not into the trading cards so I never spent much time there. The forums consist of people who have no clue what the franchise is about either.
pocketmonsters.net: Awful website, probably the worst of the "hardcore" pokemon websites. Adamant however is great, and he puts in a lot of hard work there, but its a shame everything else about that community is horrible. Probably the worst overall, "opinions" I've ever heard about the Pokemon franchise can be found there. The community is very bias toward certain aspects of the franchise and it shows. I don't know how Adamant puts up with it, his hard work is better served elsewhere and letting that place rot.
That's about it. I've never bothered with any other Pokemon websites.
