(Sorry if I'm doing anything wrong here, this is my first time posting a new thread here)
Hi guys, my name is Issy. I am a random, shy girl from Australia that recently turned 19 (just yesterday, in fact). I joined these forums more than 2 years ago but haven't been active most of the time, which is something I'd like to change
I've been a Pokemon fan for years now, and my first game was Pokemon Sapphire. Obviously that makes me a huge fan of Gen III, but I'm also a fan of Gen V as well, as I really like the designs of most Unova Pokemon. I'm mostly a casual player that plays with teams of favourites, since competitive team building has never interested me. I also love hunting for Shiny Pokemon, and I'm currently finding shinies using the SOS method in Pokemon Sun.
My favourite Pokemon are; Virizion, Blaziken, Snivy, Samurott, Spritzee, Raikou, and Incineroar. I also love Lopunny, Salazzle, Breloom, Jolteon, Pyroar, Kartana, Black Kyurem, Empoleon, and Giratina. Yeah, I have a lot of favourites. I'm a huge fan of Fighting-Types, Fairy-Types, and Ice-Types, even if the latter is kinda weak. I'd like to perhaps make mono-teams of them someday (when I'm not shiny hunting, that is).
Other things that interest me outside of Pokemon are; Game of Thrones, drawing, animation, Attack on Titan, mythology, and anything related to the paranormal and unknown. I hope to one day become a concept artist of graphic artist. If not either of those things, then a ghost/paranormal hunter or investigator of some sort. Sounds dumb, I know, but the unknown absolutley fascinates me, especially ghosts and cryptozoology. And yes, I am a firm believer in ghosts and some cryptids.
Umm... I don't really have much else to say, other than I hope this introduction is decent enough, and that I'll try to be more active around these forums from now on.
Also, you did nothing wrong, everything seems correct as I see it.
So you started with Sapphire? Me too! At that time, Sapphire was like THE game I played over and over. My favorite gens are III, V and VII.
Fantasy/Paranormal things isn't dumb! It's just curiosity tinged with childish naivete! To be honest, I kinda miss the times where I lived in my own little fantasy world, filled with things I'd now call childish and stupid. (after I decided to face reality a year ago and give up on the last shred of innocence I had left.) Of course, I'm not thinking paranormal is a bad thing. I'm just saying that I have given up on it.
Hi! Welcome to the forums! i mean you've technically been here for two years already but shh
I'm also a Gen V fan, and a shiny hunter to boot. Any luck with SOS-chain shinies yet?
I definitely have an interest in several cryptids, although I tend to lean towards those from ancient myths and legends. because who doesn't love a good nuckelavee or kelpie I even use them as inspiration for a lot of my terrible writing a lot of the time.

Someday, I may actually make some sort of signature. In the meantime, here's a Snark.
Thank you for the warm welcomes everyone. It means a lot to me.
Darjeeling, don't worry, I'm not at all offended by your comment. The only reason I do believe in ghosts is because I've actually had my own experiences with them, even though most people don't believe me, which I'm perfectly okay with. If it wasn't for that I probably wouldn't think they were real at all. As for my belief in some cryptids, I guess I just have a really open mind. Of the topic of ghosts now, it looks like we both like the same generations, which is pretty cool. III, V, and VII are also my top three favourites!
Vulture_13, I've caught two shinies using the SOS method, a shiny Rufflet and a shiny Alola Vulpix. I'm looking for a shiny Growlithe at the moment, but haven't had any luck so far. Hopefully I'll find my golden dog soon though. I don't have the shiny charm quite yet, which is probably why I'm not having any luck with finding it. I'm not giving up though! Also, I like ancient cryptids as well. I also find Kelpies really interesting creatures, and another one of my favourites is the Manticore.
I too offer you a warm welcome. Or, return or whatever.
I also had Sapphire for my first pokemon game, if you don't count stadium. So quite a few of my favorites hail from that gen, including Mawile, Sceptile, and a certain Gem-eyed troublemaker. I think Gens V and VI follow in my favorite list. And I am also a shiny hunter! I've caught a real decent amount of shinies in moon using the SOS method. Currently hunting a Riolu, cause who doesn't want the super saiyan aura master? But I wish you luck on your shiny puppy. I'll be sending you good juju.
As for cryptids and ghosts, I have a weird view on em. I don't believe in them 100%, but if you told me, "Hey! If you do this, _________ will show up!" I probably won't do that thing. And though I've looked up a few cryptids, most of the ones I've heard of stemmed from The Secret Saturdays.

Don't you understand yet? Hell is only in your head. The same goes for heaven. Once you accept that, you will either be in permanent bliss, or permanent pain.
Well! If I'd recall, I've had my fair share of paranormal experiences but I wouldn't call them directly related to ghosts or cryptids. Mostly because I'm a realist I stamp it off as having it gotten lost some time ago. Its mostly just small trinkets getting missing out of a cupboard I'm SURE no one has opened in like a year. Ghost theories do have a certain kind of mysticism to it that makes them appealing.
Personally, I'm Masuda-breeding (w/shinypin) a shiny Grubbin/Vikavolt because I want my Railgun. As for other shinies, I have a Shiny Lilligant, which makes Meloetta jealous, btw, and a shiny Flygon, masuda bred w/o shiny pin. Prolly had a few shiny dittos that died to SOS chaining. Currently hunting (apart from Vikavolt): Bagon, Snivy, Feebas, and a few others.
