    Hi i'm Oliver/Mimikewl and i'm 14 years old as of right now. I started playing Pokémon at 5th gen. My first game was Black then I got Soul-Silver shortly after. I also play some of the older Pokémon titles, heck I play Red and Gold on my GameBoyPocket sometimes. My first game systems were the GBA SP and the GameCube however at the time of their height in popularity I still didn't have Pokémon games for them. However now Gen 3, Gen 2 and Gen 5 are my favorite Generations. Gen 3 for Firered and Leafgreen, Gen 2 for GSC and HG SS(I know they're technically Gen 4 ,but I didn't care for Dp/P/Plt/ so I just didn't want confuse anyone.) and Gen 5 for B/W B2/W2. I also like Rom Hacks of Gen 3 primarily and I also play Colosseum. Some of my other interests include Star Wars and Transformers. So yeah that's enough from me because I could just rant on and on about my interests so I'm going to stop here. Smell ya l8r!

    Hey everyone, I'm joining because I wanted to be more connected to the pokemon community. I've been collecting for a while and now I'm starting to play the game. I found pokebeach through a youtube channel... honestly can't remember which one because everyone seems to talk about it. I've recently started a youtube channel. Come check it out, and subscribe if you like it...

    Hello, everyone! Long-time lurker, first time poster. I actually just signed up today because I realized I never bothered to make an account despite visiting this site frequently for years. At this point I don't even remember how I originally came to discover PokéBeach, but it was probably because of the TCG scans that used to be hosted here. I enjoyed checking out TCG cards even during the period of time when I stopped playing/collecting. (Which was during the EX Ruby/Sapphire days!) I became somewhat interested again when HeartGold/SoulSilver was released, but I found that I had nobody else in my life locally who really cared about the games or cards so I didn't bother with the cards, and I even stopped playing the games after HeartGold. I actually didn't play/buy any pokemon merchandise whatsoever until the release of the XY-FlashFire TCG expansion. The PTCGO program was in beta (I think...?) and it was free, so I gave that a whirl. I found that I really enjoyed casual play, but found the intense competitive side of it to be annoying.

    I infrequently played PTCGO for awhile until I eventually decided that I would try buying real cards again. I ended up buying some theme decks and a few booster packs and started playing with real cards when XY-Phantom Forces came out. I discovered that while a few cards were both fun and balanced in the BW era, I detested most of them because of the absurdity in their power when compared to the Unlimited sets. (Base~NeoDestiny, which comprised the majority of my cards) XY-onward was strong enough to keep pace with BW, but seemed a lot more balanced when you removed things like Hypnotoxic Laser and whatnot, so I made a point to only play XY-onward with the very few people that I had available to play with. When my then-girlfriend at the time (Currently my wife) Bought an Elite Trainer Box for me (My very first one ever -- XY-PrimalClash) we made better decks and started to play with each other much more frequently. We were into it pretty heavily, frequenting card shops and by the time XY-BREAKPoint came out, we had enough card shop credit to buy two entire booster boxes full. Since we didn't play competitively we would end up selling off most of the EX cards and Secret Rares to recoup costs of playing casually.

    Generations came out and my wife really enjoyed collecting the pins and liked how cute the radiant collection was, but that was the point where we slowed way down on collecting and playing. We only have very limited quantity of XY-FatesCollide and onward, and we decided to buy singles if we really needed something. We also started using monochrome print-out proxies to test things instead of just making impulse buys. I have been sort of curious about the competitive scene but some of the people I have tried playing against have been less-than-agreeable, and the decks they use have been largely copies of each other and really unoriginal. That could have just been poor luck, though. As for online-play, I have a lot of unopened booster packs on PTCGO as I really don't play anymore, save to use it as an interactive card-Dex. As far as videogames go, I finally decided to play pokemon again when OmegaRuby came out, and I definitely do not regret that decision. What a lovely remake! I played XY later on and really did not like it, save for the fashion-aspect of it, but since PokéMon Sun has that, I gave my copy of PokéMon Y to my sister. PokéMon Sun&Moon has really gotten me more excited about both the games and TCG. The Sun&Moon set looks great and I am tempted to buy a booster box again. I figured if I am going to buy cards more frequently, I might as well consider finding more people to play with, or at the very least to talk about the cards with.

    tl;dr: Hi, I am some random chick that has been lurking for a long time but have decided to become a bit more social, as PokéMon Sun&Moon has gotten me more into the video games and way more into the TCG. I am considering playing TCG competitively if I can find a fun and friendly way to get into it. My favorite pokémon is Shuckle and my favorite game is PokéMon Gold Version. Let's chat!

    Hello people of PokeBeach, I am Cole, a teenage aspiring Theoretical physicist (Or a Chemist, it depends on the day to be honest) who is a total science nerd, and a major fandom geek . I have joined this amazing community to learn more about the Pokemon meta game and learn all of the new developments happening in the [enthralling] world of Pokemon. I have been into this wonderful game for approximately 6 years (I started in the early days of gen 5) and plan to continue loving Pokemon for years to come. My favorite Non-Legendary Pokemon is either Reuniclus or Alakazam (I admire them so because of their strong prowess and high intellect) and my favorite "special" Pokemon is Victini (It is such an adorable and lovable little creature!:D) Besides loving pocket monsters I also enjoy Yu-Gi-Oh!, edge-lord animes, memes of all kinds, Einsteinium physics (I mean, who doesn't love E=MC2!) , Arguing my political views, and playing geometry dash and Brave Frontier. If any of you have questions about science or Pokemon ask me on my page, or come chat about geeky stuff (I'm not on everyday but i will reply ASAP)! "Anyways", have a good one!

    Why I Joined? - Came here to discuss the Pokemon TCG a little bit.

    Where I found out about PokeBeach! -
    A month or so back, a employee at my local card shop told me this was the place to check for new TCG updates and all. Finally decided to make a account just now.

    Hobbies? - Mainly video games, watching Youtube videos, and other things that are non-important.

    Anything else you want us to know about me? - Uh....name's Mark, starting off I guess lol. Decided to switch to the Pokemon TCG around early January or so, was originally a Yu-Gi-Oh player, but wanting to make the Pokémon TCG my main card game now.

    Probably obvious....but, I'm still kinda new. Mainly came to hopefully learn a few things that could help me with the current deck I almost have complete IRL, and to learn the game more.

    Would play on PTCGO...but I don't have the cards available to me on there haha. Trying little by little to be able to play on there.

    Hi all! Recently found this site and probably going to pick up a sub soon. The articles here are great and I'm hoping to get into some serious TCG playing.

    I started with Red and Blue when it first came out, and I've been playing every gen since. I got started in the TCG right away also. There was a local group I played with for years until one day people just didn't show up and with no warning or cause, it just ended. This was around EX FireRed & LeafGreen. Recently found out that a new group was started and I've been going there for a few months now. I got plans to go up to Seattle in May for the regionals there and expect to have my ares handed to me on a silver platter, but that's part of the point right?

    Currently rocking my own version of M Rayquaza that I call Clear Skies. It's all colorless and nearly every pokemon is a flyer. Since I know this will be it's last few months of Standard I'm working on a water deck to take it's place.

    I'm going to be reading every article that gets posted and work on learning the meta and what works and why.

    Hello, I am Weavile GX. I am a huge Pokemon fan. I was introduced into Pokemon by the anime. I really enjoyed it and then I decided to play the Games, Collect the cards and learn to play the card game! Then I heard of Pokebeach. I heard it was a safe place to talk about Pokemon and see Pokemon News. When I first came here I was a bit shy but then I was extremely confident and ended up having a great time. Thanks To WPM for making this website!

    Why you joined! I wanted to become a part of the Pokemon community, and I thought this was a good way to do it!

    Where you found out about PokéBeach! I searched "Pokemon forums" on Google, haha.
    Your interests! Anime/manga, cartoons, animation, art, writing, video games, cosplay...the list goes on!

    Hobbies! Writing, drawing, playing games, PTGC...I'm drawing a blank, but I know there's more than that!

    Anything else you want us to know about you! Uhh...hi! I'm Artie, I'm an 18 y/o (soon-to-be) art student who hopes to become an animator! Pokemon goes pretty deeply into my childhood, and my passion for it has been reignited by the newest installments in the series; Sun & Moon. I used to collect the cards when I was younger, but I only recently started collecting again-- and I recently learned how to actually play! I'm looking forward to posting here!!

    Why you joined: I wanted to have some people who love Pokémon like me to talk to. Because I'm pretty much deaf, face to face conversations are a pain, so I decided that I'd join a forum

    Where you found out about PokéBeach: I just Googled "Pokémon forum"

    Hobbies: Writing, reading, archery. Doesn't my Star Wars obsession count? I'm kind of drawing a blank on this one. I don't have many hobbies.

    So, hi! I'm DarthCyrina. I'm really knew to this forum thing, so please bear with me. I'm a huge Pokémon fan, who mostly plays the card game. I used to be a huge watcher of the anime, but then my hearing got too bad to watch TV. Yeah, I'm deaf. I try to not flaunt it, but it may come up in a few stories. For anyone curious, I do know ASL. Get that question often. I am very new to the card game and Pokémon in general. I got introduced to TCG at a meeting of my school's tabletop gaming, and got hooked. I haven't participated in many real tournaments, if you don't count the yearly one the aforementioned table top club puts on. Oh, and I also play the video game, although not nearly as much as TCG

    I'm looking forward to being here!

    Hello, my name is Wayra.

    I use to watch Pokemon all the time as a toddler when it first released in America and have no memories of it other than the Jigglypuff episode and seeing the Pokemon movie when it released with my preschool. I'm not a fan. Pokemon GO has been the craze since last year, I saw how cool the concept was and started playing it, and ever since I am addicted. Now I am technically a new Pokemon fan that knows nothing but what happens in Pokemon Go.

    I started to watch the anime as an adult in September of 2016. Now I am in the mid-season of the Orange Islands. I love the show and PGO so far. I literally search Pokemon forum 10 minutes ago to post about my journey by taking notes and review every episode I am watching for the first time. I also wanted to share an idea for future seasons and spin-offs (fanfic) and I want input from legitimate fans.

    Thank you.

    Hey guys, So, I'm a returner. I left the game 8 years ago, after my friend won worlds, and then went to magic. I'm still heavily involved in it, as I'm currently looking to try and get to the pro tour. I was Dragonzong on here a long time ago, and I proposed a type of format called extended/ modern and saying that would be awesome and create value for older cards. So I'm back from a hiatus, and I'm excited for what the format brings, and what is happening with the game.

    So for reintroductions. My name is kyle. I'm 20, and I'm currently a psychology student, entering my 3rd year at York University. I played Pokemon since I was about 7-8, began my first tournament when I was 10, and quit when I was around 13 or around 2009/2010. I've been playing magic the gathering for a long time. after a long time away, I played my first game in 8 years, I decided to get back into the game. Now with a bank account, I can actually buy cards, rather than packs. My general play style is to lock people out of the game or play control decks in every game I can. So it feels weird, but I'm back home. I'm glad to be back.

    Hi from Italy!

    I'm Paolo, an architecture student from Italy.
    I found out pokémon when I was a child, when I received blue and red as a gift: I remember so clearly the first time I beated the pokémon league...they were good times!
    Growing up I lost tracks of them...but then, a couple of weeks ago, I found a box with all my old pokémon cards!
    And so now I'm here, trying to recover everything I lost in the last ten years or more.
    I'd like to start again collecting pokémon cards: I see that everything has changed since I bought my last card, but I'm sure that with your help I'll be able to start over.

    p.s. sorry for my poor english ;)

    Hey, everybody! Finally the Account Confirmation email showed up in my inbox, so I thought I'd introduce myself real quick!

    Why you joined!
    I'd kind of fallen out of Pokemon for awhile, but I'm hardcore back in it because Sun and Moon were so good and finally a step back in the right direction. My favorite Pokemon game that I've played so far HeartGold with Moon taking a VERY close second.

    Where you found out about PB!
    ...I actually tried typing "Team Skull Forum" but this place seems really great to cover all the Pokemon bases.

    Your interests!
    Shut-in stuff. LOL. Gaming and cartoons/manga.

    Hobbies!

    I collect a LOT of stuff.

    Anything else you want us to know about you!

    I have two wonderful guinea pigs named Dahlia and Athena.

    Hello, I'm the Curious Latias, Graven! I come in search of good conversation and great coffee. ;)

    *Cough* The real name's Ethan. I am joining PokeBeach in getting to meet other's who love Pokemon, but casually and competitively.

    I initially discovered PokeBeach upon gaining interest in the Pokemon TCG. Initially, I was planning to just stick with card collecting, as a friend of mine gave their entire collection to me as a token of friendship. But, after a while, I've been investing myself in the competitive metagame, and I can't seem to escape it's natural pull. So, I levitate here in great pleasure to be part of the PokeBeach community.

    ~Interests~
    Media: Pokemon (Ya don't say), Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Eragon, former MLP fan (it's dissipated over the years, and it helped me when going through a phase), Super Smash Bros., Dragonball Series, Buso Renkin, Dragon Drive, Dark Souls Series, and a few others I can't remember off the top of my head.
    IRL: Swordsmithing, Art, Photography, Animation, Cosmology, Astrology, Worldbuilding.

    ~Hobbies~
    Playing Video Games (YA DON'T SAY), Listening to VGM, Reading Novels and Manga, Making Designs of Whatever Comes to my Head, Bowling, Pokemon TCG (and somewhat interest in other TCG's; MtG), Going to the Beach, Attempt Making a Video Game via Narrative and Mechanics (I can't program to save my life. :( ), Drink Coffee.

    ~Anything Else~
    Nothing much, other than trying to get a job other than working at the McDonalds right outside of the Dover International Speedway. Next weekend is going to be literal Hell for me.

    With that said, I'll be gliding off somewhere along the beach for some good gossip. See you all around!

    • Why you joined!: Joined because my interest in the Pokemon card game got reignited a year ago. I also want to offer input on this site's articles.
    • Where you found out about PB!: Lurked here for quite some time.
    • Your interests!: Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Smash Bros., Fire Emblem
    • Hobbies!: Occasional reader,
    • Anything else you want us to know about you!: I mainly play TCGO because I don't want to spend too much money on the real cards in order to keep up with the rotations. My favorite Pokemon is Gallade. Its Mega Evolution isn't the best I have to admit, but it does look sick.
