    I think so--it allowed me to meet some of my very best friends that I never would've met otherwise

    It made my mind twisted but in a good way where I can now analyze everything and come out with logical answers for everything all the bloody time.

    Yes, Pokemon changed my life. It started when I got a Torchic for Christmas, and BOOM! Off I was, crazy for Pokemon.

    Pokèmon was the first thing of its kind I had ever encountered. It came during an important time in my young life of friends leaving and my feeling hints of romance.

    Kanto, Johto, and the Pokèmon associated with them are mostly all I feel this attachment to, almost everything about Hoenn and Sinnoh is like Power Rangers Zeo onward or Yugioh GX/5Ds to me. I don't actually disclude all of them though, Gardevoir/Gallade and Dawn have a place in my mind.

    If you're a BurningLeafShipper, let me know that I'm not alone. People who've messaged me so far: 10

    I've become video game obsessed, and it's helped me discover plots for my books. In fact, it made me want to write books.

Eventually, we developed a liking for each other after talking back and forth in one of the threads at said forum, then developed and online relationship, and long story short, he just was over here visiting me on Holiday (he is from England and I'm in the States d:), annnnd it ended with me being proposed to, bended knee and ring and all.

    Sooo yeah, I'd say Pokemon has changed my life. xD

    My story is pretty similar to cascade88's. I met my boyfriend here. He's from England, I'm from the States, and we're meeting IRL next year. We also plan on getting engaged. All because we both joined a Pokemon forum--and within four days of each other, no less.

    So has Pokemon changed my life? Tremendously.

    I owe Pokémon a lot.

It's funny because I took a break from Pokémon for the longest time and I came back to it and shortly after I joined here. Never thought something like Pokémon would bring me to some of the most awesome people ever. :D
    These are all such amazingly sweet stories! It's positively inspiring! Best of luck to you all!

    As for me, the Pokemon games were the first games that I poured hundreds of hours of my time into. I just fell in love with the franchise, as I did with Sailor Moon, The Legend of Zelda and Harvest Moon/Rune Factory. So I guess you could say that if it wasn't Pokemon it would be something else, but I'm really glad it was :P

    I learned to draw because of Pokemon. I learned HTML so I could make a Team Rocket fan site. I took a break from Pokemon for a few years, and I hardly drew at all. The next time, I actually started posting my art on the internet. I had always been against doing anything like that, or posting on forums or communities before, but I have met great people on the internet because of Pokemon. I learned to write somewhat decently, and am hopefully getting better, because of Pokemon. I feel like I've accomplished more, and been more creative, in my two years of really being "in the fandom" than the five years I went without it.

    ...Yeah, I think Pokemon has changed my life.

    First generation Ranger and damn proud of it.

    Pokemon has had some impact on my life, but not as big as some of the posts here. It, along with Yoshi's Island, introduced me to the crafty little thing known as video games, and it became a major part of my young childhood. I also learned new vocabulary words at a young age (I remember shocking my first grade teacher when I gave here a clear definition of the word "absorb". After seeing Zubats use it so much, I had a pretty good idea of what it meant.)

    I think it did. Pokemon is probably why I analyze things differently for possible answers now.
    EDIT: !00th post! woo!
