Don't use this website much anymore, but I still feel as though I owe it some gratitude for all its shaped me. As far as I'm concerned, without it, I would have been some filthy casual pokemon normie but instead, I've spent a good portion of my life nerding over it, with every bit of it being fun. I met some good internet friends, all of who at one point will forget I existed and vice versa. The website's changed a lot since I first came here in 2012, for better and for worse, but I'll remember it beyond its surface.
So thanks and wish me luck.
