I happen to be an assistant at this board, and it's quite fun. Recently, we had a dip in activity because our leader got in a car accident, and was away for a while. However, she's back, and we're trying to get back into the swing of things.
You begin your journey in Elantra, a new region. Here, you get to choose between different Pokemon with unique personalities as your starter. After this, head to the roads! There's all sorts of hidden plots and adventures just waiting to be discovered, including shiny Pokemon, elaborate team plots, and just plain silliness.
The background's a bit bright... ;) But there's lots of skins you can choose from, once you are a member, so don't worry.
Questions? Feel free to PM me, or ask me there. I'm Hotaru on that board, player of Hotaru and everyone's favorite nuisance Rocket, Drin.
