I'm not good at this

Post by Ariakai on Fri Sep 16, 2016 1:10 am

Ok, truth time. I spent around 6 hours trying to make this. This is the first forum I've joined since 2012 where I actually have some intent on being part of a community so I wanted it to look good, but...I'm really not comfortable with this sort of thing. I only worked so hard because I've joined forums before where not making an intro thread really puts people off or makes them feel offended or makes them believe I'm some sort of troll or bot.

If anyone's curious about stuff like how I got here or why I like pokemon, etc. I don't mind just answering though. I am here to try to make friends, get into the meta, and feel like part of a community again, I'm just not much for exposition, I'd rather my contributions or actions speak for themselves. I'll just toss out some general info and some links for that purpose.

I use this username for most online game related things and it is my name on Showdown so I thought I'd use it here too. Other names I go by online are Kazekai for general purposes or KazeLynn on places related to the PlayStation network. And no, before you ask, my name isn't Lynn, I just wish it were. It's actually my name in Pokemon games when I'm not forced to play as a guy because of bad female designs. (Hello Gen 3.) If anyone ever wanted to chat in Discord or something most people know me as Kaze by now but I don't mind being referred to as Aria either, I've used both names for a long time, the latter slightly less.

Some links:
deviantART: http://kazeskyfox.deviantart.com/ I'm not a prolific artist but I hope being on a fan forum again will give me some motivation, I have only made one pokemon image I am satisfied with so far. http://kazeskyfox.deviantart.com/art/Swablu-and-Altaria-472295005

Miiverse: https://miiverse.nintendo.net/users/Kazekai I mostly post Art Academy/Pixel Paint doodles and bad joke screenshots, a lot of which are borderline inappropriate. (I am seriously surprised Nintendo doesn't flag some of them considering how I basically turned the Tingle Tuner into a euphemism.)

Steam profile: http://steamcommunity.com/id/KazeSkyfox/ Just in case, I guess.

I also have a Twitter but I wouldn't recommend going there. It's basically my own personal Armus. I suspect Nintendo came across it one day and arbitrarily assigned my FC type as poison just to spite me from using it to trash talk them so often.

I think that's everything, I'll put my 3DS FC in my description when I get around to making it.

I also make mid-range to extremely long posts. I try to be brief but I'm not always successful.

You don't have to be afraid- we wouldn't have bitten you for not making an introduction thread.

Also, your Altaria drawing is really nice- better than me for sure.
But regardless, welcome, and hope you enjoy your stay.
(If you think you're bad at introductions.. I'm bad at replying to them).

Aside from pokemon, the 2 nintendo franchises I follow religiously are animal crossing and zelda. I wasn't gonna get HHD at first but I caved and, well, do not regret it at all now. Very Happy I hope you can decorate your house with this much detail in future games. :O Being able to have coffee tables reasonable distances from couches is pretty important to me.

I need to get back into ACNL, half my villagers have probably deserted by now though since it's been about a year and a half. Very Happy

(I really need to get caught back up with the introductions >.< )
Well, I'm late, so...hey XD Glad to see another artist around here. And I thought everyone knew what Animal Crossing was...or am I part of the small group that does like it?

You got cubone as a result on the first MD games didn't you?

...that's what I always got.

I guess with there being so many closet AC fans around then maybe there can be some discussion about it? Very Happy

Also do you guys have a discord chat or something? I've signed into the forum chat several times but it's empty. Surprised

Actually, I got Treeko, if I remember right. Which I'm alright with. He is my favorite starter, after all.

But no, we don't have a Discord. And the Chatbox is usually empty since a lot of our users are in school right bow. I might pop in there in a bit. I'm about to head off to the store.

Problem is, I'm usually up at night. :/ I figured that was why it was pretty empty. I just happened to get up today at a reasonable hour.

Treeco was my favorite starter...he has to war with serperior for my heart now though, and both of them are likely to lose to rowlett. Very Happy But at least his mega is awesome.

I wasn't too keen on the Gen 5 starters, myself. Seem rather over-designed to me, but I do like its idea and concept.

Rowlett looks good, though. But Treeko wins because Grovyle is awesome.

Still surprised the sceptile line wasn't dual grass-dark just based on design and pokedex entry.

Not that it matters much to me, just a thought I always had.

I can't really tell if gen 5's starters are over-designed tbh, they look about as complex as gen 2's starters to me - especially meganium. And definitely look less complex than gen 4's starters to me. (not that it ever stopped me from loving torterra, strange typing and all) but they do have some elaborate patterns across their bodies in their final evos I guess which I don't see on the other starters except infernape.

God I hope rowlett's evolutions are good, if that rumor about its final evo being an archer is true it will be my favorite pokemon. Very Happy

Neat, I guess that'd make it fairly easy to coordinate games together, if you wanted to sometime. Razz

Oh, absolutely ^u^ Don't have too many others that are on around the same time as me due to school for everyone else, so it could be fun!
