I think I got here thanks to DragoniteJ. I was also at Gameshark and I may have been the first sharker ever to ask for the damage formula. Dragonite said "If you're interested in that shit, you should check these guys' notes. But don't tell anybody, 'cause we don't like noobs." It wasn't too hard to wander over to the forum from the lab and like Tyranitar "never looked back." Okay, maybe twice, but shit was so gay that I regretted it.

I've only just registered here.
I knew about the site a while ago, but mostly used it to check Pokemon stats and all.
I think I first heard of the site from visiting #pokebattle...

I found AH while I was lurking at the VGF Pokemon forums. The stupidest thing was that I lurked a year here before I actually registerred (I'm a procrastinator and I thought I'd get flamed to a crisp if I barged in at the hight of my n00bness.).

A few buds on the net recommended it to me. Y'see, I work a lot on message board security, and I am oft interested in watching different message boards and seeing how the administrators deal with security issues. It's kind of like a learning experience...
I have two YaBB message boards to call my own, I'm a mod at another, and I'm co-administrator of yet another. I kinda got my hands full most of the time, so I probably won't have much time to post here.

Back in the day Pokemon TCG was the in thang. I think i found Wizards of the coast site after going to some TCG tour and finding the website printed everywhere. I tried it out and ended up sticking in the chat there. After a month or so i got bored there, so i went to some site that i heard everyone talking about.. Pojo. I checked it out and it was.. pleasant. Too many n00bs for my liking, mind you i was one back then, but there were still some sound people there. About Christmas time i got bored and went to explore Azure, I always knew about it, but didnt sign up as i knew that was where all the 1337 people went, and wanted to save making an arse of me'self. I joined none-the-less. Anyway.. that is it.

I read ETs interview with Nintendo.com and he mentioned UPN, Pokémon Daily and this place. Being a complete n00b at that time (OMG IAN GARV .etc) I decided to check it out.

And that is the principal reason why I just posted this message.

Well, I originally heard about it from AGNP, but didn't think much of it. Then, I heard so many positive things about these forums from other forums, so I decided to check it out. I'm glad I did.

To be honest, I really can't remember where I heard about this site. I had an older account but I didn't post that much. Then I lost interest in Pokémon for a few months. A little while ago I thought I'd give it another whirl and started playing again. I went back to my first ever pokémon site/forum, and then I remembered how good Azure was. I came back and re-registered and here I am.

3 years ago a friend of mine and I were looking for gaming sites in our computer class. He happened upon gamesages.com, and I made a mental note to bookmark it at my home computer. Soon after, I stumbled upon GameFAQs since gamesages FAQs/Walkthroughs were sponsored by GFAQs, then from there I heard heard about Blizzard's PBS, and I met Rei2 (LightningFlik, at the time), who told me to download AIM and he gave me a link to Azure. Too bad I only starting using my account a year after I registered.

Same here. This was the first Pokemon forum I ever came to, thank god.

There was some other forum he said he went to(the name escapes me), but AzureHeights sounded much cooler.

ahh, finally I'm allowed to post. Hee. I guess I'll kick off my first one with what I'm good at. Long stories.

How did I find you guys? Well.

Step 1: Got involved with Pokemon by watching the show, got an Emulator and a Rom from a friend, and played Red illegally for a few months before learning that it was illegal. (ahh, so that's why I couldn't link up for battles!)

Step 2: Fell out with the group of net friends I hung out with, decided to look for more Pokélosers. Browsed through various sites, and found *gasp* Pojo. It was updated frequently, so I stayed. (see how easy it is to keep me happy?)

Step 3: Joined the Pojo "gooey" group, hated it. Joined the Pojo Chat Room. Disliked it but stuck around out of boredom. Was made an Operator. No clue how that happened. Quit being an Operator, quit the channel, and joined the Pojoboard. Disliked the board mostly, and hanged out in the Fanfic Forum. Was modded there. Eventually heard about Azure, digested the website itself in a day or so, (rather tasty shade of blue, you know) and didn't notice the forum.

Step 4: Lost all respect for Pojo leaders during a Great Amount of Insanity. Retreated with group of friends to a tiny community board. Became extremely bored.

Step 5: Drifted back to Azure, don't know how, because almost all the rest of my links Mysteriously Vanished. Noticed "Forum" and wondered to myself, "Hey, Rains, how much these people have been suffering due to the lack of your presence!?"

I replied to myself, "I don't know, but I think 'suffering' isn't the right word until I actually go there."

So I said "Whatever. They've been here forever, so I don't think they'll want to Mod you."

And I pointed out, "You know, I think that is a good thing."

Thus, I applied.

This is the only time I'll answer this question:

Yes. My name is spelled "RainStrom." Yes, it it spelled that way on purpose. No, it's not a typo.

Well, it goes. This is the unabridged, FULL VERSION 1.2.3.99a of how I came to Azure Heights.

Back when Pokemon was THE TV show to watch, and the cards were impossible to find, I of course got right in the middle of the storm. I watched the show every time it was on, bought the cards, but the video game, well... I stayed away from that.
So, eventually I got tired of the cards, and I read in TV guide magazine, or something, that Pokémon was a popular video game before the whole hype was there. So, I decided to put aside playing Super Smash Bros., and bought the game. Man, did I love it. I played all the time, Missingno. and everything. I battled my friends, the whole nine yards. Then, one day, it struck me. There were other moves that Pokémon could learn besides attacking moves that matched their elements, which led me to believe that maybe there WAS some depth to this game, after all.
So, I went on my computer, and looked up newsgroups about 'Pokemon.' I found about 4. The first one I went to was tnn.games.pokemon. Well, seeing as to how there was a total of about two posts, and they were both spam, I decided to try a different one. This is when I found AGNP. I loved it, so I signed up as "Chris the PokeSaiya-jin" It was later shortened to PokeSaiyan. One day, I read Simyn Locke's [AznExplosn's] War Story (you know which one, yeah, the Molly Nut Bomb one). He mentioned something about "Azure" in it, and I thought 'what's that?' My answer was soon to come.
Toby Martin then posted a thread soon after that about a VERY good way to sk00l M2 with ... no, that can't be right... a SLOWBRO? Well, he had invented the Tobybro, and, in his sig, I saw a link to Azure Heights. This reminded me of when Simyn had mentioned Azure, so I went there. I read the whole site, and then went to the forum. I signed up as Jolteon X, and here I am today.
Wow, I think this is the longest post I have ever made. Thank you for reading.

As I recall, it was SDShamsel who referred me to this place a year or two ago, but for the most part I frequented my visits once you guys started with that whole 3-word story and those random musical-insult-spammings. Why nothing aside from the Karp Park stuff? Because even though I have kept up with every game in the series (excluding puzzle league or non-rpg related games), I seriously suck at battle strategies and such. I'll just have to show you guys some of my sad teams one of these days to make my point clear. Bah, well there's my story.

Cripes! It's amazing that I'm still a member of the Forums!

I just did a search, to see when my last post was, but it dinnae return anything. Woe is me alas.

But the Story, now, that's a different story.

I, too, began to play pokémon on an emulator first (I also didn't know that it was illegal). I got to around Cinnabar Island, I think, when I stopped playing the emulator, because...
I shelled out some green stuff and bought a GBC + Pokémon Red!

I beat the Elite Four, did various things, and eventually got most of the Pokeymen (get it? It's like the cactus from SMB2... right, anyway...), but continued in my blissful ignorance.

Eventually, I saw this bookmark my brother had put on the computer: Azure Heights. I selected it, went to the site, read stuff, tooled around, and got better. I saw the word Forum at the bottom of the page, but I thought it was some sort of Roman marketplace, so I dinnae click it. Later, my brother introduced me to the concept of a WEB forum, and I immediately signed up here.

I believe that my brother found Azure Heights (and created the fateful bookmark) because a friend of his told him about it. That friend was a certain 'unknown' (:rolleyes guy who went by the moniker 'Necrosaro'. Necrosaro went to my (and my brother's) school last year, and he was also the one who swiped the ROM for the Pokémon Blue game I had been playing on the emulator. (Side note: if you've ever played the game FFV on an SNES emulator, and the default main character's name is Butz, know that Necrosaro got the Japanese ROM and translated it to English.)

Yeah, and that's, like, my story and stuff. Thanks for listening, fellows!

EDIT: fixed the Rolleyes

I found this site via google. I should win the award for 'least interesting way of finding Azure Heights'. Here goes:

There was no school, I was very bored. I went online, went to google, searched for 'dragonite'. On the 4th page of 100 hits (yes, I was very bored), I came here because the description said something about a pokedex. Upon entering, I discovered that Flash/Thundershock/Swift/Thunder wasn't a very good Raichu moveset. Yep.

I had heard about this site from several other message boards. Also, I had found my way here from the Porygon PBS.

Me, Biffster, and that TeeJay character all got here in the same way. You can either settle in for the story or just scroll down to the next post.

We're from Kansas and were totally psyched up about the Stadium Tour on April 8, 2000. We were all trying our best not to be cocky, but deep down we really were (none of us had lost at all at last year's tour except for TeeJay). We knew we were good at Pokemon, but we had no clue that there were people actually BETTER than us. We have our own local league with 8 people in it. It's a ladder system and can get VERY competitive.

Our Pokemon were good, but not perfect. We had Pokemon raised w/o boosted experience, 10 of each drug on every category, and we would usually catch about 10 of each specimen before training it. Yet we knew NOTHING about Stat EXP. Everyone's Mewtwo had between 355-358 speed, but we weren't sure why the HP or other attributes would sometimes go up. We just thought the force was with our Pokemon or something.

And yeah, our teams were good, but not skillful. For example, we knew how to effectively use Amnesia on Mewtwo, our Mews had Swords Dance, Swift, etc. But in most battles, all we would use was Mewtwo. We usually didn't pay much mind to the power of physical attacks either. And when I look back now and realize that we used Mewtwo, I cringe. Uggh...that Pokemon is evil and should not be used by skilled trainers. Dropping Mewtwo is like dropping training wheels from a bike.

But anyway, we had all been winning quite a bit on the Stadium Tour, again getting all cocky as our Mewtwos destroyed team after team. I used my Jolteon once, but that was only because I felt sorry for the kid I was playing. Then, while loitering around the Stadium Area, we noticed this kid who was like 19 playing the gym leader. Biffster noticed that the guy had exactly the same moveset on his Mew that ours do, and then after this guy dismembered the leader, Biffster ran up to him and says, "You play Pokemon?" The kid was like, "Uhh...yeah a little," probably thinking we were punks or something. And then Biffster introduced everyone to him and we all talking and stuff. The kid turned out to be none other than 10,000Lb.Snorlax. We talked to him about games (Soul Calibur, DoA2 mostly) and he probably figured out that we were off track when someone from our league showed him the Nintendo Pokemon Players guide in his backpack. 10K promptly gave us the Azure Heights address and was even kind enough to clone me a Mewtwo with max stats (I was most happy, but I still haven't ever used it).

So that's the long boring saga. Thanks for reading it yet (yeah right like you actually did). But I gotta say, this is the BEST Pokemon site on the net. Keep up the good work. :-)

P.S. The new forum is way cool, too!


awww, i read it

lol now that EN has bumped this topic I might as well give my short story.

I found the UPN in an AOL search way back in 1999 or so. I joined the forums as Psyduckrules (omg lol) and made quite a few posts in the Pokemon Video Games board. I befriended some of the posters on there, like GolemKong, EeveeTrainer, and FlyingPidgeot (trans.: Windex). I think there was a link to Azure in one of their sigs, so I clicked on it and found a wealth of Pokemon information. I didn't really go to the forums that much, however, as I thought UPN was better in that department (omg lol).

I ended up registering on Azure in maybe April or May of 2000 under the alias Bird and Diz (I was heavily into jazz at the time) because I was in the very first InterBoard Tourney representing the UPN and I needed to post in some topic at Azure for the tourney or some shit. I don't even remember. I hardly posted, though.

When Pokemon Daily finally got a forum, that became my regular place of posting instead of the UPN, which was dying anyway. It was at PD where I finally used the name Dweedle, and it stuck. So I changed the e-mail address of my Azure account to like 123872634sjkdbfasdf7804qrksdf@aol.com or something so I could change my nick to Dweedle (only allowed to have one account per e-mail address). This was in November of 2000. I was in the last few RBY tourneys that were held (CLST, SMPT, maybe Sneak I or something, not sure), and then, just after GSC came out, I took a short break for a couple months (junior year in high school = not too much free time) and I pretty much stopped playing Pokemon. I came back for a bit in the summer of 2001, and then took an extended hiatus from the Pokemon community (kinda like Phish, I suppose [Frown] ). It was not until October 2002 that I returned to the community...almost a year and a half away. I got nostalgic, what can I say. It was cool coming back because the people that remembered me were shocked. This is the main Pokemon board I post at now (even though I don't play Pokemon at all anymore), mainly because the other boards I used to go to are no more (well, UPN is still around, but it's not really the same anymore).

Well, that's my story.

I was linked by Psybro, now you know who to blame. Yur. Anyway, originally I was The Pokemon that gets Laid, but I changed that to Boodabonzi. Etc.

OK, I know I'm probably not the nicest Pokemon Trainer when it comes to giving advice, and if I get flamed on this, it is probably well deserved. So here goes...

Summer 2001. I was looking for a cool forum to give me some GS tactics and strategy suggestions.

I registered like a half year later, eventhough I came here like everyday to check out The Oddish Hall.

I typed something about Pokémon Yellow into Yahoo's search engine, and came across GameFAQs. It wasn't until about half a year later that I got off my fat lazy ass and asked someone what the address was. I came here, mainly looking around at the actual site itself, and eventually noticed that the message boards seemed more in-depth, and so I registered. And here my sad, pathetic, ugly, hypocrite, retarded, evil self is today. [Smile]

Actually, I've known about you guys for a while, but I just never bothered registering until now.

Anyway, I've been looking for a good serious site to discuss Pokémon since UPNetwork went under. UPNetwork was okay, but a lot of the members were either children or immature jackasses. Hopefully, this place won't be the same.

Consider this my intro post.
