Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum (just signed up) but no stranger to the bulbapedia. It's been a great help in my Diamond game.
I am from Mustafa, from Turkey. I met the pokemon franchise when I was in middle school (by tv series) but only started gaming when I got a DS in college :P Since I have no friend with a DS, its been really hard (and lonely) for me to complete my national dex. I had given up. Recently I picked up my NDS and this time I intend to finish the job.
I hope to get a bit more involved with the community, and get a better understanding of the game mechanics - which are much deeper than I originally thought. Needless to say, I also want to complete my national dex! Then, I will finally try my luck in competetive battling! (those guys in route 2xx really start to get to you after a while.)
Thank for all the help so far Bulbapedia. And see you around!
