This is where you talk about how you found Psypokes!

Well I found it because I was looking for a good pokemon fan-site, and that's how I found Psypokes.

(I looked for 20 mins to see if there was another thread like this, if there is and I didn't see it then delete this Mods!)

I was making trainer cards, and i found a page of examples on a shop here, i signed up and requested one, 'cause they were awesome animated ones, and i gradually began to join the community after that.

Although I don't really come here too much anymore, and I haven't managed to download mIRC again on my new PC yet, I met some of my best friends here, which is why i stick around here still. I found the people here are all pretty awesome when you get to know them, even Krisp and Frost (omg no waii)

*Off topic for a sec.* WOW! It's been quite a while since I posted anything on Psypoke.

Back to topic: I found psypoke.com by typing in Google "the best pokedex". And Psypoke was the first one to show up. That's how I found Psypoke. :D

I had actually been using the GHPF Dex for RBY and GSC.
I looked on their affiliates, and low-and-behold, Psypoke was there.

It took me 4 months to realize there were forums :o

In May 2005 I googled "Pokemon IRC channel" and after finding a bunch of crappy channels, I finally stumbled across #Psypoke. It was the right size of channel (not so big that I wouldn't be noticed, but not so small that nobody cared) so I lurked for a while. At the end of the month I registered on the forums solely because I wanted a trainer card and made very few posts. After a while I decided to stay around, and that's almost five years ago.

I was looking around the internet for a website that I could get good pokemon info, and I found Psypoke. I got info from the website for like 3 years then I found out about the forums, So I joined.

Oh, you.

I found the original version of Psypoke through the internet back in early 1999. Let's be honest, the original site was crap and I paid little attention to it at the time. It was only after I found a link to the site's Coolboard on Pojo's forums back in 1999 that I got into the community even though the main site was still subpar. And I was one-fourth of the people who created the incarnation of the site that everybody knows today, so there's that too.

I was looking for an online comprehensive Pokedex (mainly to look up moves and levels of evolution), and Psypoke has the best.

I found it while looking for affiliates for my Pokemon site back in... 2002? 2003 maybe? I pretty much ignored it for everything ever at the time but I kept seeing it under affiliates for other Pokemon fansites. I started using the site for its information in 2005 and in 2006 I joined the forums/IRC.

I don't really remember how I had found it, but I used the main site for a few months before actually joining the forums back in June '06. This is the only forum that I've stayed with for over a week.. because it's awesome :)

Well, I'll be honest.
I was on the serebii forums and one day this guy posted a poll saying who had the better PokeDex; Serebii or Psypokes?
So I decided to check the thread out and saw the link to Psypokes and yeah thats how I found Psypokes.

CONSPIRACY!??!?!?!

I was at gts+, a moderator too, but I left because they didn't respect my opinion, One of my friends there, Shoutai, suggested psypoke and I've loved it here forever since

...with the exception that I lost my sig when i had less than 50 posts and have remained a law abidding psypokian ever since but its still gone :(

I was googling a long while ago.
Was trying to find a reputable site that would tell me EVERYTHING I'd need to know about pokemon.
SCORE.

My brother introduced me to the site years ago when he found it was good for info. I never really payed much attention to Psypoke because there were very rare updates on the main site and mostly I trolled around lolstop. Then one of my friends wanted me to get a bunch of Pokemans for her and I started scouting for forums where I could trade. I foun I liked these forums best, so I registered here last year and have been here 5 months or so now.

I was searching for a decent guide and this site was the best that I could find. I used the guides only for a while and then I took a look at the rest of the site. I'm a member in other forums so I joined this one.

I was looking for a good Pokedex to obtain information, and google (or some other random search engine) led me to Psypoke. I didn't join the forums immediately, and even when I did I observed more than I posted. I can't remember the rest, but I think I started off with some simple posts answering queries, and sort of kick-started team rating by helping papersun and kasiya start up a Rating Center. There was also one by someone called WorldOrder (I think).

I found the forums while I was using the Search on the Main Site for looking up info for Missingno. The first 2 results leaded me right to one of the topics here, and I felt like joining after that.

I found Psypoke 4 years ago and found the forums and joined as Pokemon Champ. I used to post a little more, but now I rarely do.

I found Psypokes way back when Ruby and Sapphire came out, it wasn't until later (much later) i decided to join the forum because i could (also because i really liked gengar and haunters pokemon forum), So i migrated here. I then lost interest and then a few years later i decided to join again.

Well, I was looking for some information about Pokemon Ruby back in 2007, and this was the first site that showed up. After 3 years of using Psypokes, I finally Registered this morning.

I used serebii for a long while, but then Psypokes is better because
1. Its website design is better
2. Its guides are better and more in-depth
3. It has a Feebas/Milotic guide. If Serebii has this, it's not as good or as easy to find.
