It was an affy on pokedream, which I would usually use to look up pokemon and guides. I stills ometimes do, because it has the evolutionary chain on each pokemon's lookup, as well as the regular and shiny sprites from each game. *pokes avatar* Mew sprite from crystal ftw. But why isn't it moving?
But there's pop-ups adds for cursors and jusnk out the wazoo, some even the adblock won't block, which is annnoying because pop-ups are slow on my computer. SO glad neopets games aren't in seperate windows anymore.

Last year (when I was getting hooked on a borrowed copy of FR) I needed to find some info on evolving some pokemon or other. So, I tried a Google search on it and found Psypokes. I've been reading info on it ever since. But now that I am going through HG I thought I'd join the forums. Y'all may be stuck with me now. ;-)

My friends and I were sitting and talking about pokemon, when Diamond and Pearl came up. Back then, all anybody knew about was that there are two new games comming out. My friends knew most of the pokemon that had been released, and I asked them how they knew. They told me to go to Psypokes. I only joined the forums recently, mainly because I am lazy. ~Steel~

when diamond and pearl were about to come out, i wanted to figure out which starter looked like what, which was best, etc. so i google imaged "diamond and pearl pokemon." (what, i pick my first starter in every gen by looks) Lo and behold, i got about fifteen images of turtwig, piplup, and chimchar; also, their various evolutions; and arceus and giratina, in both normal and shiny forms. i started to look at the urls, and realized that somehow psypokes was a common one- and had a sprite and everything. this led me to the psydex. once there, i discovered guides and forums and everything... plus, it had news updates. my parents wouldn't let me join until recently, which is when i started contributing instead of spectating on the forums. and, well, here i am!!! lol

I'm the same as a few other people in that when Diamond and Pearl came out I wanted to know about the pokemon and since i couldn't get my hands on a paper guide i decided to use google. The first one I came across was not even worth mentioning because the site was a nightmare and the information is incomprehensible. I got curious about finding shiny pokemon because I just like to torture myself and since the other site had no such explanation I found psypoke.

After lurking for a good long while I registered because I wanted to share my results about chaining, I mean my luck was so bad I felt others deserved a good laugh :P

I stumbled on it once on Google and found it to be useful. I used it for information and walk through before I signed up this month.
Not bad, I say. It's fun.
Little hard to read sometimes though.
Dark background, dark writing, or small.
But aside from I like it.

I found this site through the affiliates section of Pokémon Dream.

Man, that was so many years ago...

It was during the tail-end of Generation III, when the only Gen IV Pokémon known were the ones showcased in the movies, and the section read "Pearl Diamond".

I thought I already responded to this topic?
Anyway, I found Psypoke through randomly Googling "Online Pokedex" on a sunny day in March 2010. The result? This and Pokecharms. I tried Pokecharms first, and didn't really like it that much. So I backtracked and came to the Psydex and immediately fell in love with it. About 2 months later, I realized that there was forums (and I think that Greatest character contest thing was starting up, or something like that). So I joined, and here I am now.

Before I was using Pokedream (well I was just a guest and never signed up or anything) and I couldnt find some info of some sort, so I googled it up and eventually found a page to Psypoke. And eventually I got all my info here. But I had been a long time guest here (even before HG/SS release) and never signed up until recently.

Well, I found psypoke in the beginning of the DPP era. Originally I found this site upon the initial release of the game, but it took me a good month to join the forums after I had beaten the game and wanted to try the Wi-Fi battling system. After that I have been on/off as an active member. My 4 year anniversary was 2 days ago!
