Hey, everybody! It's 0kamii, and I'm here to bring you guys this lucky green Meet & Greet!

If you're a longtime user, or have just recently joined us here on the site, then please: Welcome to PokémonForever! This is a nifty little site for all things pokémon, and some things not. We have plenty of forums for all kinds of discussion, and we have events going on continuously for all sorts of trainers. Be it a Shiny hunter, breeder, competitive battler, or just someone who enjoys to talk about Pokémon, I'm sure you'll find a spot in our forums somewhere. The monthly Meet & Greet serves as a chance for newer users to break the mold and introduce themselves, while veteran users can resurge from the darkness of the forums and reintroduce themselves to all our newest browsers. We, the PokémonForever mod team, look forward to having all of you, and we hope y'all stick around for a good long time. If you have any questions, feel free to PM myself, @0kamii, one of the other mods, @stephenWITNESS, or @FireTaco, or one of our awesome Kahunas, @Kris, @"yung lord", and @moo311.

  • Nintendo just recently announced their upcoming plans for the Nintendo Switch. Which games are you the most excited about coming to Switch?
 
For me, it has to be Ōkami. It's not my namesake for no reason. The game is beautifully crafted, and the amount of tributes paid to traditional Japanese folklore is staggering. This truly is a gem of a game, and I'm thrilled to see it get some of the attention of which it's been sarved.
 
  • Keeping in theme with the month of lucky things, this mod has to to ask: What's the luckiest thing that's ever happen to you? (Doesn't have to be pokémon related)
 
The luckiest thing that's ever happened to me? Well, aside from my loving partner, @The_Flaine, I'd have to say the luckiest thing (in Pokémon) that's happened to me were my first two attempts at ally chaining after the release of Sun and Moon. I got a Pikipek in only 68 allies, and then a Rockruff in only 30 allies. This led me to believe that ally chaining was too easy, only later did I realize I'd just gotten really lucky!
 
  • Everyone loves music! What's your favorite style? Favorite artist?
 
I've always had a love for New Age music (that includes Celtic music), but my favorite artist has to be the Eurovision 2012 Song Contest winner, Loreen. The_Flaine can tell you multiple stories about how I've gushed over her records, and she continues to blow me away with her artistry. Her style is usually very EDM, but lately she's dipping into soft punk, which she manages to pull off with near flawless aptitude.
 
  • If you're a new user, you surely must've put some thought into your username. Why did you choose the username that you did?
 
I chose '0kamii' because 1) 'Okami' was already taken and 2) I just really love the game. Plus mononymous names are usually eaiser to remember than something like: "Lucian Claudiu-Vlad Dinu de Aur." Not my real name, but definitely a real name.
 
  • Time to turn the tables! Tag a forum user and ask them a question using @. For example: @Sir. that's my toast. Great username! Mind telling us the story behind that one?
 
If you're still feeling kind of shy, then don't hesitate to simply drop in and say hello! We don't bite here on PokémonForever, and if you feel like you need help or assistance in any way you can feel free to reach us at any time. I hope you all enjoy your stay, and please enjoy all our little community has to often.

Thanks so much for reading, everyone! Battle onwards, friends!

Guess it's my turn to get the ball rolling around,

But first of all, Thank you for the mention about my Tourney, its comming around soon and the more people the better  Big Grin

Now to answer some questions, 

Which games are you the most excited about coming to Switch?

Well here is the thing, I don't play a lot of other games, adding that into the fact that I missed the original direct so I have been hearing my news from my friends who have been hyping up the new Smash Bros so I guess I would have to put that, however okami looks fun and, from what I have seen, might make it the first game I play once I get my switch.

What's the luckiest thing that's ever happen to you?

For me I would have to say that my luckiest moment was when I managed to find my 3DS fully charged when I suffered a power outage when visiting family up in the North East.  (also had my pokemon white version in it so I was able to play some more of my Nuzlocke)

What's your favorite style? Favorite artist?

Of all kinds of music I would say that my favorite would be the old Rock, along the lines of "Uptown Girl", "Pressure", and coincidentally "It still Rock and Roll to me".  If you been seeing a trend then you would know that my favorite artists is of course Billy Joel.  I still listen to those songs regularly, most of the time when I work out or have an essay to write I would have that playing in the background.

Why did you choose the username that you did?

oh ummmm........ no comment

Time to turn the tables! Tag a forum user and ask them a question:

ALRIGHT LETS TRAGET SOME PEOPLE:


@Black Waterfall What's your opinion on water types?

@moo311 Out of curiosity what would you say are the most and least commonly requested pokemon you have ever made for your giveaways?

@0kamii What gave you the idea to name your Guild Amethyst Ωmega? (yes i had to do the colors, its seemed only right)

@"yung lord" How is your cat?  Tongue

Well i must say im quite impressed. the sight has managed to stay aloft for many months and even years. You dont see that in many cases. i suppose pokemon really does have special powers over people huh? Well im still relatively new to the whole site in general. probably stuff i still dont know how to do here, but overall id say my experience was enjoyable. I find myself wishing good luck to those that love pokemon or nintendo. or both works fine. I suppose i should give my own answers for the questions....right then. here goes

>Which games are you the most excited about coming to Switch?
Well coming from a person who loves the Nintendo universe, id say lots of these have me hyped. but for me, the games im most excited for are Luigis Mansion and Mario and Luigi Bowsers inside story (no idea why they skipped partners in time but...meh). The reason is simple. I never played the originals. Well ok, i DID play the originals but i never owned my own copy of them. so seeing them get remade and released for a 3DS has me ecstatic. Also i wrote the games coming to 3DS because i dont even have a switch. still i guess the smash bros game is cool. it just looks like the same smash game but for the switch though. also new characters maybe.

>What's the luckiest thing that's ever happen to you?
Luck? pfft. lucks never really been on my side all that often. I dont have too good of a memory either. so heres just one incident i thought was lucky. Beating games when you have less then 10 health. ive had my moments. like mario and luigi dream team. sorry i cant be more specific, but thats what i get for having terrible memory

>What's your favorite style? Favorite artist?
I dont really play favorites when it comes to music. its either i like it or i dont. I suppose i find myself tuned into music that keeps a good beat and where the lyrics are good....like Blue by eiffel 46(or whatever number it is idc...)...and yes i like that song. so if you dont...sue me.

>Why did you choose the username that you did?
Alright so first of all, Umbreon is amazing to me as a pokemon. and its shiny is beautiful to me as well. i have my reasons. as for the 9004 part....I might like the dragonball z joke its over 9000 wayyy too much...dont judge.

>Time to turn the tables! Tag a forum user and ask them a question:
Oh boy i get to try this out...lets hope this goes well since im gonna be straight up about my questions

@Dova
Yes i chose Dova, and i right this. Dear Dova, since you have experience in the shiny trade shop buisness, im sure lots of people are wondering, which of the (over 800 i assume) pokemon has the best shiny in your oppinion?

Which games are you the most excited about coming to Switch?

Honestly i didnt bother looking up which games are even coming to switch because i dont have a switch and dont have the money for one either. broke boys unite

What's the luckiest thing that's ever happen to you?

The amount of times i did something really stupid without getting hurt somehow is pretty nuts so i'll go with that lol

What's your favorite style? Favorite artist?

Jazz, rnb, funk and stuff like that. Also really like some alternative pop/rap. Too many artists i love to list, but i've been bumping a lot of rex orange county this weekend so i'll go with that. here's a good song by him






Why did you choose the username that you did?

Was my username on discord due to some weird inside joke i dont really remember and i couldnt be bothered to find another one tbh


@FireTaco the cat is doing great thanks for asking!

Which games are you the most excited about coming to Switch?

Obviously smash is one of the most anticipated games for the switch and I'm excited for that game to come out. Mario Aces also seems like a fun game.

What's the luckiest thing that's ever happen to you?

Not many things have happened to me that I would consider "lucky" but the luckiest thing that ever happened to me was finding this website. Getting to see the site grow and make connections with so many different types of people is an unforgettable experience.

What's your favorite style? Favorite artist?

ummmmm, I don't listen to that much music, but if I'm bored and want to listen to something, I always turn to game soundtracks. Pokemon music is always comforting and a go-to, but I also listen to music from undertale and zelda.

Why did you choose the username that you did?

I came up with moo311 because it's a combination of my 2 lucky numbers, 3 and 11, and the word moo, from an ongoing joke with my friends that would take way too long to explain.

@FireTaco Probably the most requested pokemon are definitely mythicals and any pokemon in the competitive spotlight. I was surprised that there weren't that many exeggutor and trevenant for shiny hunting during the release of USUM and SM.


@Drangor2 @Kris Any anime suggestions on Netflix as someone who's never seen an anime, except the pokemon anime?

@FireTaco Thanks for the tag! Oh man, what a difficult question! So let me tackle the easy ones first! Wink

Which games are you the most excited about coming to Switch?

Unfortunately I bought a 3DS to play Sun & Moon, I know that I was a bit too late but at least I had fun for two years. I can't be very happy with the fact that now I will have to buy a Switch to enjoy the next Pokemon games, even though I understand that they already extinguished everything they could do on 3DS and that now it is time to move on. I still don't have a Switch so I don't have any Switch games in mind.

What's the luckiest thing that's ever happen to you?

Meeting my wife in a language exchange website when I was just trying to practice my German. Smile

What's your favorite style? Favorite artist?

I like a lot of music styles, but the ones I listen to the most are Pop and Rock. I used to like the Finish power metal band Sonata Actica a lot a few years ago, and recently I came accross this amazing version of Gotta Catch 'Em All by Powerglove featuring the vocalist of Sonata Actica, Tony Kakko.
 



Why did you choose the username that you did?

Well, why do I have Waterfall on my username since I claim to be a Fire-type specialist? Well, that's a long (and hopefully interesting) story!

Everything can be traced back to the boy in my profile picture — the original 'Black Waterfall', a fictional character I created for a Pokemon tabletop RPG campaign that I played (as Black) with my friends for four to five years.

The main story was set in Kanto fifty years in the future, that is, fifty years after Red became the champion in Gen I. So Black was born in Cerulean city and he was the youngest of the now renowned Waterfall family, a family that gained fame and projection in the Pokemon world as top tier Water-type trainers over the past years. In fact, the Waterfall family was so powerful that they owned the Water-type gym itself and the head of the family (Black's father) had great hopes that Black could become his successor as the next gym leader.

Unfortunately for Black, he was always a hopeless Fire-type Pokemon'aholic since the day he was born, the black sheep of the family. For the shame of the Waterfall family, as soon as Black turned eleven (Pokemon universe's adulthood!), he left home, chose a not a Squirtle but a Charmander as his starter and set his new life goal: to become the next Fire-type gym leader and defeat his father to prove Fire-type Pokemon’s worth! He was also addicted to a fictional TV series called 'Rapidash Raiders' about cool Old West cowboys riding Rapidashes (that probably explains his cowboyish style).

In a sense I guess that 'Waterfall' fits very well too, because Black's aim in life is to make Water-type Pokemon fall! Playing as Black was so fun for me that I unconsciously took over his identity (and his challenge to face Water, Ground and Rock with Fire) as a Pokemon player myself!

So What's Black opinion on water types? Given this background story and Black's trauma with Water-type users, the only possible answer is that the best Water-type Pokemon is Volcanion and all the other ones are armed and dangerous threats to be eliminated! >:D (Just a joke, all Pokemon are awesome)

Time to turn the tables! Tag a forum user and ask them a question:

@Tenebris_Kane Why Squirtle/Blastoise is your favorite Pokemon? 
@RetroTyphlosion What are your thoughts on making Typhlosion viable competitively speaking?
@Dova Are you planning on using Incineroar now that its HA is legal?
@Pokeballsohard Out of curiosity, what is your favorite Pokemon and why?

Ōkami HD, as I've never played it before and really want to, Smash Bros. and probably No More Heroes.

For gaming, it'd be beating Undyne the Undying in UNDERTALE damageless. IRL it'd be meeting my gf.

My favourite genres of music are pop and retro. I don't have a favourite artist but Grant Kirkhope is my favorite composer

@moo311 Thanks for the tag!

If you like fantasy, I reccomend KonoSuba, it's a really funny Isekai anime with a great cast. If you like action and don't mind some darker tons, check out Parasyte. If you just want to watch a classic anime, then Bleach or Full Metal Alchemist are my picks.

@FireTaco 

Why did I name the guild Amethyst 0mega? Two reasons, but two and a half more like.

1) Amethyst is my birthstone, and 1.5) by extension purple has always been my favorite color

and - 

2) 'Omega' is a term denoting something that comes last. It's also a word that means a lot to me personally for reasons that would take FAR too long to explain here. My breeding guild is intended to be the LAST place people go looking for help with their projects, so the word had a double meaning. The zero in '0mega' was just because my username is spelled with a zero instead of an O.

-Okamii v. 0kamii-. See the difference?

So I guess the answer is that amethyst and omega are two very personal aspects of my personality, and when combined, make something I'm proud to share!

  • Nintendo just recently announced their upcoming plans for the Nintendo Switch. Which games are you the most excited about coming to Switch?
I can't say I'm too jazzed on the Switch right now. I will be getting it for Pokémon Switch providing there is a VGC circuit for it, but that's the only reason I'd buy a switch for now. If I bought a Switch I'd get the typical Nintendo games, Smash, Kart, Zelda, Mario, etc. Probably Splatoon as well.
  • Keeping in theme with the month of lucky things, this mod has to to ask: What's the luckiest thing that's ever happen to you? (Doesn't have to be pokémon related)
As much of a cop out this answer may seem, I don't believe in luck. I'm assuming the question is asking what's the most improbable thing to ever happen to you. So here I will answer, just recently I was forced into some overtime hours at work giving me an extra $200 on my paycheck. That Sunday after payday my wife and I were driving in a brutal snowstorm. I ended up losing control and spun into a ditch. We had to call a tow to get us out. The tow cost exactly $200 and the car could still drive. Nobody was hurt, all ended well.
  • Everyone loves music! What's your favorite style? Favorite artist?
I'm one of those crazy metalheads that furiously headbang as the day is long. My favourite band is The Black Dahlia Murder and my favourite sub genre of metal is melodic death metal.
 
  • Time to turn the tables! Tag a forum user and ask them a question using @. 
What was the hardest breeding project you've done?
Hardest in terms of length was finding a hidden ability Kangaskhan in XY. Hardest in terms of most convuluted was a calm, Tentacool with Aqua Ring, Knock Off, Rapid Spin and Mirror Coat. A lot of those egg chains were 3 or 4 Pokémon deep back in XY. Also super proud of my Marvel Scale Dratini with Extreme Speed, Dragon Dance, Dragon Rush and Iron Tail as I did that one from the ground up, including catching Marvel Scale Dragonair in XY friend safari.

Long story short, in XY I bred a lot of fun and weird things because I could. All from scratch and without a Ditto for most of it.

Now to ask @ChaseInfinity where is Animekid7?
Just a fossil from the days of olde.
