I'm Paracosmic. I've been playing Pokemon since Crystal came out, which makes me feel super old when I think about when it came out. I'm a webfiction author, and spend a lot of my time coming up with stories to explain events in my Pokemon playthroughs. I've recently started a sort-of-scramble challenge on Red, and aside from my mad dash to revive the Dome Fossil in Yellow so I could get it over to Red, that's all I've been playing recently. I love making up arbitrary rules to follow for both writing exercises and Pokemon games. Recently I've gotten into the Zelda games and Zero Escape, but I haven't started anything new.
That's about it, I guess. I found this site on my hunt for challenges I could take with me on vacation this past week. After a little exploration and a bit of lurking, I decided to join up.
@Mizark - Thanks! I feel very old mostly because I was a lot younger then. Even though it was apparently only seventeen years ago -- for some reason I thought it was a lot longer. I wanted to start playing when I was five and my friends were playing RBY, but I didn't get a gameboy for another few years. :p
Greetings, Para! And yes, there are quite a few people who have been there since the days of the Game Boy, including myself. So it's nice to see those that have still been with it since then! And challenges? Yes, that's what I like to do best when it comes to playing Pokemon! If you post one in our playthroughs/challenges forum, I would surely read it. =)
You can always message me if you want someone to talk to. Hope to see you around!
