Hey! I picked a good time to refresh the general chat page. Just in time to look like a complete stalker.
1. What got you into pokemon? How long have you been a fan? Well, from when I played the original Red version way back in the late 90's. I didn't know much about it back then, but since my interests grew and I was able to understand things better. So yeah. I did temporarily fall out of the series a couple times, most notably in 2006 and 2016, but I came back when new iterations released.
2. More specifically, what got you to join AZ? Well, I first joined around the time that Black 2 and White 2 released in the US, and Marriland had finished his walkthrough and I was looking for people to chit-chat with. I wanted to talk about my time with the games and all, and see what else in store there was. And try to look for potential trades, too.
3. Besides Scolipede and Lapras, what are some of your favorite pokemon? Do you have a favorite type? To name just a few...Hydreigon, Houndoom, Vikavolt, Skarmory, Staraptor, Heliolisk, Aggron, Roserade, Absol, Altaria, Medicham, Crobat, Mamoswine, Jellicent, Glaceon, Porygon-Z, Darmanitan, Maractus, Haxorus, Chandelure, Malamar, Primarina, Drampa... Yeah, those are some. As for my favorite type? My answer to that usually changes, but I do like Dark-types, and Bug-types too.
1. How've you been? Doing good I suppose, even if I still haven't gotten to that point I feel like I should have been at long ago.
2. What's your favorite forum section? To really get into specifics, right now I would have to say the clubs section, mostly for TSI. That's where a lot of my posts are nowadays. And I am getting back into the challenges section, slowly but surely...
3. If you could have any superpower, what would you have? Being able to go anywhere I wanted, more than likely.
4. Favorite movie? That's a tough one... Gah I'm not good at deciding on one particular favorite. Sorry x_x
5. Do you like plays? Well I don't go out of my way to see them, but yeah, I guess you can say that.
6. If so, what's your favorite? Well, my recollection of plays isn't massive per se, so again I don't think I can decide.
Sorry if these responses seemed unenthusiastic x_x
1. What's you favorite Pokemon game? Right now I think I would have to go with either XY or Sun/Moon. Maybe BW, but I haven't played them in a long time. I still haven't completely grown back into B2W2, but hopefully I will in time.
2. What do you enjoy about it? BW: The story, the Pokémon they introduced, and the final battles against N and Ghetsis (especially the latter's Hydreigon). That and how it was the beginning of the power creep.
XY: Lots of Pokémon to take, along with some infamous opponents for Nuzlockers. And character customization, and the PSS. Oh, and Team Flare's rad outfits. And Wonder Trade.
Sun/Moon: Also the story, the Totem fights and some bosses proving challenge, and quite a bit of the music as well.
3. What was your favorite challenge of yours? Since my Black 2 Nuzlocke completely collapsed, that's not an easy question. But if I had to choose, I guess the first X Wedlocke I did in 2014. There were some cool Pokémon I got to use in those, and some pretty fun fights. I will surely return to Kalos someday, though. The Heart Gold Wedlocke I did that same year I also liked for what I had in that, even if there was a LOT of grinding involved.
4. Pancakes or waffles? I think I'll go with waffles. Crunchy, delicious, yellow waffles.
When was the last time you ate a waffle?
Do you like ice-cream on waffles?
What's your favourite genre of music? Why?
Is there a song you like that's not from a genre you typically enjoy?
Have you heard the song Waffle by Sevendust?

It doesn't matter where we go, there's always someone that doesn't agree with us. AMA | AID
When was the last time you ate a waffle? It might have been at a time when I went to brunch with my parents, maybe before.
Do you like ice-cream on waffles? That is a fun combination, yes. Maybe now I actually want to go buy some waffles for that.
What's your favourite genre of music? Why? I don't really have a particular favorite. I may have mentioned in the music club that I was a lot more into rock and metal back in the late 2000's, and while the latter is still one I like from time to time, there really is no preference for what I listen to. I'm pretty much with Bijou in being your standard Top 40 loser who has no taste. (That being said, I do have standards, and come December I'll have some words on that front.) I mean, I do watch Spectrum Pulse and his album reviews, and yet I never really branch out. I mean, it's not like I deliberately only listen to the mainstream, but with how rampant it is and how busy I tend to be, I have a hard time figuring out what's worthy of my time.
Is there a song you like that's not from a genre you typically enjoy? As I said, there isn't really a particular genre I don't like (well, except for one that's hard to explain), so not really. Maybe if I think of one I'll get back to it.
Have you heard the song Waffle by Sevendust? *goes to listen to it* Eh, again, there is some stuff from this genre I like, but I can't say I was huge on this.
Hi. C: Why, hello, my dear friend! :D Not often that you're in other AMA threads besides yours.
Do you have a favorite Disney song (or songs), and if so what is it? Oooh, good one! There are so many classics to choose from. If I had to choose three:
A Whole New World (Aladdin) - This one displays a major sense of adventure, wonders, love, and fits the movie perfectly.
Colors of The Wind (Pocahontas) - Even if a blue corn moon isn't real, this message is one of the more significant ones that I've come across in the classics.
Beauty and the Beast - The Angela Lansbury original, this one really captures what the story was meant to be about. But that one, NOT the underwhelming cover by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson. I would honestly take the one for the 2017 remake by Ariana Grande and John Legend over the latter. And no that's not my inner pop trash speaking.
And as a bonus (just for you <3), for a villain song, I think I'll go with Be Prepared from The Lion King. An unmistakable song for an unmistakable villain.
If you could hang out with one Pokemon character for a day, who would you choose? To choose a unique answer there, I would say Shauntal, maybe so I can learn about writing more from her and what goes into her stories. :P Or Clemont to discover more about his passion for science and electric stuff. Just to name two possible answers.
Have you ever had any pets? Aside from goldfish, no. When I lived with other people for most of my life, it would've been tough, and the idea never entertained me, which was not helped by all my unpleasant run-ins with bigger dogs. That being said, I have actually been to pet stores in the past months a couple times and looked at cats that are in need of someone to adopt them. Maybe once I'm not living with my parents.
If you were to learn another language, which one would it be? Well, I'm sure I've already talked about how I tried to learn Spanish while in university, but that's since faded. If not that, then maybe Japanese, considering how much that's brought us, including anime, and a lot of Japanese words sound really cool to say. So yeah, I would have to choose that.
Thanks for the questions! They were fun to answer. You're always welcome here :P
Favorite challenge of yours and why was it your favorite? I guess I would have to say the first X Wedlocke I did in 2014, because I used a lot of neat Pokémon and overall things went pretty well. But of the ones in 2015 I would go with my Platinum Wedlocke, if only for the happy note it ended on despite the disaster that ensued late. Too bad my Black 2 Nuzlocke couldn't end on a happier note as well.
If you could do anything for a whole day without being restricted by time, money or distance what would you do? That's a tough one. Perhaps be able to drive wherever I want to, maybe so I could go somewhere awesome that's usually a far distance and wouldn't be as easy to get to on my own. That would allow me to find a cool destination :P
If you couold have a Pokemon as a pet, what Pokemon would you choose? Why? If I could choose, Swablu, because it'd be nice to have a pet bird, especially one with fluffy wings. It's one that wouldn't be hard to raise or keep for myself. Hehe, bet you thought I would say something like Venipede or Houndour, didn't you. ;P
-Most devastating Nuzlocke death? While there were some jarring deaths in my Wonderlocke that you haven't seen yet, two from 2015 come to mind immediately: the first was Bunny Hop the Lopunny in Platinum, as Cyrus' Gyarados had just completely demolished one of my two pairings without a scratch thanks to a missed Toxic, and then ThunderPunch got it to 30% and then it OHKO'd me with a critical hit Waterfall. It was just awful. I really wanted that one to survive the whole game. And the other is Singapore the Maractus from Black 2, which brought that challenge from my favorite challenge of mine to causing a MASSIVE drop in my opinion on it.
-Favorite TV show/movie? Eh, I don't really watch a whole lot of TV nowadays. But I guess if I HAD to choose one, South Park? Again, there really isn't much I watch. One of these days I will have to check out Stranger Things… As for favorite movie, someday I'll decide on an all-time favorite. If someone asked favorite Disney movie though, maybe that would be an easier story.
-Steelers or Eagles? (lol PA football rivalry Pitt is better) I won't deny that the Steelers have better players, admittedly. So yeah. But I can't really say I have much of a preference between them. I think both teams have their respective advantages.
I've been wondering for awhile, but how did you choose your username? This username was first used by me on PokéCommunity. There, I had previously used the name "flareblitz37" come very late 2013, and after two other usernames there, come fall 2014, and the word "Pendra" comes from Scolipede's Japanese name, which I thought sounded cool, and I kept the word "flare" from the aforementioned name.
Anyway, in no real order: Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, Mulan, The Aristocrats, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Meet The Robinsons, Toy Story 3, Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, and Inside Out.
I could go in detail for some of them but this is late so maybe later.
