    Talking Time to Finally Be Active!

    Hello,

    I registered for the Bulbagarden forums way back in 2010, wishing to become an active member of the Pokemon community. However, at that time I was just coming up to the Higher School Certificate (a set of government exams in Australia to determine your 'academic rank' and prove your knowledge is that of a Year 12 level), and that ended up taking up most of my time. I ended up forgetting about Bulbagarden during my studies.

    I am now just about to enter my third year of University, undertaking a Bachelor of Information Technology. Over the last couple of months (the period between the end of my last session and my next) I've come to find myself playing Pokemon more and more, as well as watching Best Wishes with my significant other (whom I met at a Pokemon tournament in 2011). This sparked my memory, and I remembered that I have a Bulbagarden forum account!

    The reason for Pokemon becoming a hobby I've recently launched back into is because the fifth generation games (B/W/B2/W2) and anime have made me remember what was ultimately fun about the franchise (the creative Pokemon designs, Pokemon Global Link, and revamp of the anime are the most prominent factors). I did play the generation four games and all those before it, but the fourth generation felt like I was just going through the motions. It wasn't too fun, and neither was the state of the anime at that point.

    Currently I am playing through Pokemon White 2, and am participating in the 2013 Winter Friendly. Despite losing all the time with an in-game team, it's still a lot of fun. I feel like I'm supporting the franchise; I hope that more Wi-Fi tournaments are held in the future.

    Lastly, my favourite Pokemon is Whimsicott. I think it looks really cool, but also super cute at the same time.

    I hope I end up having a fun time with you all!

    Hello, welcome back Heredity:) Nice to see you've decided to visit here again. The forums are different than how they were in 2010 certainly, Ive been there since then myself. A lot of the Gen 5 stuff is indeed fun. I go on the Dream World fairly often though I do need to play the games more often, I kinda stopped after the E4 in Black 2. Ive never participated in a wi-fi tournament though the concept is cool, Im just not into competitive battling much.

    Whimsicott is a cute fluffy Pokemon, I'll have to try it sometime in a game.

    Anyway, if you need any help, feel free to ask me or another staff member and we'll try to help you anyway we can. I hope you enjoy your stay here.

    Your avatar is the cutest thing. <3; Welcome! I'm glad you're back into Pokemon again, it's that sort of thing that is hard to quit entirely, haha. The fifth gen was definitely an improvement from the fourth though, plus we have the awesome X and Y coming so there's lots to look forward to. Have a great time! :D

    Thanks so much, you're both very kind.

    Despite being announced as a 'short' generation, I think that Game Freak and The Pokemon Company have put a whole tonne of effort into the fifth generation that definitely deserves plenty of praise. After all, it has managed to even get me interested in competitive battling once again. I think that's quite a hard thing to do, considering the amount of effort involved (haha). I'll bet the sixth generation is going to be even better - it'd be ultra cool if they manage to tie it in with the new Nintendo ID system. It sure would streamline a lot of things for all of us who wish to connect to each other in-game.

    Despite my time here in 2010 being short, I'm definitely noticing the differences. The forums feel a lot more refined, there's definitely been some worthwhile progress. Great work, guys.

    That's really cool, as I met my SO on a Transformers emailing list back in the '90s. So far it's worked out great; I married the big lug.
