        If you haven't proceeded much further in the story, there's always the "gimmick of unlimited re-rolls" for the first orbs. But I'm sure you've gone pretty much ahead and cause havoc with Hector... >.>

      I pulled a rainbow hyper rare Lunala GX from my pre-release packs! Super exciting. :D

      So TCG folks: what cards should I be looking for at my pre-release tomorrow? :D (Aside from FA Umbreon, Espeon, and Team Skull of course :P)

      Ohgod, the Fire Emblem Gaiden remake on the 3DS had me crying tears of joy during the FE Direct. And we get Alm and Celica amiibo too! <3

        Gaiden isn't hard, just different. It's kind of the red-headed stepchild of FE because it uses a lot of different, new, quirky mechanics, most of which were never seen again. Most of the "difficulty" lies in the fact that it was an NES game with horrible UI (as was standard at the time, mostly), so it was slow and you had to do a lot of self-calculating to figure out hit rates, etc.

        I played the original for myself last year with a friend and it was really an amazing experience. I'm so glad that we're getting a new version that's true to the spirit of the game while making important QoL enhancements, and of course that gorgeous art!

        Also, yes, PAL regions get the game on May 19th as well. I guess I'll have to be sure to finish up Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon by then so my game calendar is clear.

      This weekend I get to to my first Pokémon TCG pre-release since DRX! So excited. :D I've always loved the pre-release style of play.

      I found a Shiny Sandile in Pokémon Moon! :D It's only the 2nd non-plot Shiny I've encountered naturally in the wild, so very exciting! :3 :3

        Also, how is the Netherlands? Besides cold, of course. xD I've always had a mind to visit there alongside France.

        It's not actually all that cold here. Being so close to the sea, we have a pretty temperate climate year round, especially compared to Chicago where I grew up. Though, I suppose it might feel cold if you're from southern Cali. :P Overall though, I really do love living here, though! It's a pretty great country and I'm glad I made the move. Amsterdam in particular is a super cool city that I love living in. :)

        Oh, wow! I would have expected it to be colder, but thinking about it, being close to the ocean does do that to the climate. That's awesome that you grew up in Chicago! My dad is from out there as well. Are you a Bears/Cubs/BHawks fan, too? xP
        Netherlands sounds great, btw. I'm sure Amsterdam has a lot of neat things to explore, so I'll have to one day!

        Pretty good! I always enjoy spending time with my family, and getting to spend a week in LA/Disneyland was a fun bonus, even if the weather wasn't super great. :P

        Trading is quite a bit of fun! We do our best to keep trading here at PokéBeach as safe and reliable as possible as well. :) If you're feeling iffy about a particular trader or trade, make sure to look at the reputation thread as well.

        Pretty good, thanks! :D I've been off-site for a while due to vacation, but I just got back this morning so I hope to be more or less back to normal soon. Life as definitely been hectic recently.

        @Lunarwork What's going on with the trade thread? Are you waiting for it to be approved, or is there a duplicate you want deleted or something?

    Aside from Pokémon, I enjoy playing other video games (mostly the Ace Attorney, Fire Emblem, Lunar, and Zelda series), as well as reading and writing. I'm an ex-speed-ascender on KoL, and I also enjoy playing online mafia games. Also I love cats, and dogs, and most other animals.

    Generation Started:
    1
    I currently live in Amsterdam with my husband, my cat Cap'n Luke, and 4 goldfish. I do not work, but spend my free time writing and volunteering for websites, such as PokéBeach. I started getting into Pokémon in the first generation. At the time, I was in junior high school. I collected and played the TCG and watched the anime first, then started playing the games with Yellow. Now I am primarily a casual player of both the video games and the TCG, and also a TCG collector.
