    A wild newbie appeared.

    *Waves* Ahem...

    Greetings to all of you reading this! My name is Alyssa (no duh..), and I'm a 19 year old Pokegeek from the U.S. I found this forum randomly on the net, and the layout looked very super pretty, so after a teeny bit of lurking I convinced myself to join. XD Anyways, hoping to make some friends who enjoy battling here because unfortunately I have none of those irl. :P

    I've played almost all the main series and spinoff games (with Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of sky followed by Colosseum and Gale of Darkness being my absolute all time favorites aaaa memories! <3). I love to battle both casually and competitively: This means that I can be super serious and challenging, or super casual and laid back. Really, it's up to you. I'm also into breeding, shiny hunting and collecting rare-event/novelty mons.

    So here are some other details about me:

    My favorite Pokemon is Wigglytuff. Yoom-tah!! I probably look super silly to anyone who doesn't get that reference.

    I currently attend community college and I'm looking forward to transferring to an ivy league school after I graduate.

    I've been a loyal Nintendo fan ever since I was a small child! It literally started w/ my parents who were chill enough to own a N64 and a bunch of the handhelds, and I fell in love with them the second I played them!

    I love music (especially Japanese, Korean, American, and British artists), singing, playing guitar, writing, baking, drawing (not so good at this one tho), exercising (especially cardio and calisthenics), learning languages, and collecting plushies. (My room shelves are cluttered with them.)

    I'm half Japanese, and understand quite a bit of the language. I've also visited Japan a couple years ago to visit some of my relatives, and it was amazing! I'm actually planning to go back over there some time somewhat-soon-ish with friends so I can hopefully attend some concerts.

    That's all I can really think of for now, thanks for reading! I'm a pretty laid-back, easygoing, and social person, and I'm always happy to have a conversation. :)

    Hey Alyssa, welcome to PXR! Hope you like it here, it definitely seems like your kind of place!

    I agree, I love the heck out of PMD: Sky and Pokémon XD. Definitely awesome games right there! And that's cool that you got to check out Japan and you know Japanese as well! I've heard it's pretty amazing there. :)

    Pokémon Crossroadsへようこそ!

    Hello Alyssa! I joined Crossroads a few days ago so I'm still seeing which forums I like the most, but there are plenty of them so you'll defenitely enjoy your time here.

    It's great that you're a Pokémon Colosseum lover too, I spent so many hours playing it when I got my black Gamecube. Did you ever manage to catch all 48 Shadow Pokémon?

    Hope to see you around, and feel free to PM/VM me if you ever want to chat!

    Welcome Alyssa!! Ooh you collect plush?! Do you have a favourite Pokemon one? :) I used to collect them but I ran out of room xD

    That's so cool that you've been to Japan! I'd love to visit a Pokemon Center store one day!

    I'm sure you'll fit right in here and make a bunch of new friends! :)

    Oh man, I looooooooove PMD EoS so much xD. Still one of my absolute favorite Pokemon games ever. You're so lucky you got to go to Japan. I still would really love to go someday. Maybe one day I'll finally be able to go. I can dream xD

    Hi, and welcome to PXR! Someone else who likes the Mystery Dungeon games? You've got great taste. Wigglytuff's a great Pokémon, with Mystery Dungeon making it impossible to dislike. Is that why it became one of your favourite? :)

    I'm like you in that I like battling competitively and casually. Sometimes it's nice to let the competitive side out, but there's nothing wrong with just doing it for fun. I'm not really able to do both at once though, because I'm super competitive. :3

    I really hope you enjoy it here, it's a laidback community with lots of friendly faces! :D
