I quit playing Pokemon at the end of Gen 4 and I remember these forums being very active as well as many others with trades, battles, and even clans going on. There were tournaments happening and lots of people to have fun with. I picked up the games again awhile ago but, I can't help notice the trading and battling scene seems dead here. I am left wondering where did everyone go? Is there some new place everyone goes to now for that stuff? Or perhaps Gen 4 and possibly 5 were the golden ages of online play? It really makes me sad I decided to stop playing back then since it doesn't feel the same anymore.
