Well, hello. I thought I'd make a hello thread, because..I'm new, and that is what new people do. I'm 15, and still love pokemon. Thought it was about time I joined a forum - that and the fact that Emerald is driving me crazy.

My all time favourites are Sandshrew and Sandslash, love them. You just can't compare them.

Eh...I'm not all that talkative, don't usually post much. But I hope to be able to say a few things here and there.

Heh, endangered? Maybe..but we exist...we just keep a low profile, I'm sure you understand why.

Thankyou for the welcome.

Welcome to SPPF, Amanita. Someone should be here shortly to post a 'newbie guide' for you if you have any questions.

I would post it, but my lazy-anti-determination attitude keeps my from helping e_e

Where have YOU been? >>; Just kidding.

Umm, welcome to SPPf, Amanita and glad to hear that you've read the rules. Make sure you never break them or rabid Plusles will eat you or your signature (whichever breaks the rules). Their ruler is the lovable PsiUmbreon.

Stay active, have fun, etc. Also, remember to search before you make a thread or anything thoroughly as well as changing the forum skin to a desirable one on the bottom left (courtesy of Eszett). Feel free to PM me for anything.


And wow, someone actually pasted all the rules here..
