        I think the last time we met was like 2008, maybe 2009? I remember it was still gen 4 anyway. I honestly didn't expect to find you on here either, but it's awesome that you are. I know Elevator Music and Jibaku are still around but apart from them I haven't seen anyone else that I remember from the Pokethology/Marriland days for many years.

        I still play pokemon casually and even ladder a bit. Teambuilding is still fun although I find it much harder than before since my old sensibilities (such as trying not to have any weaknesses by slapping a defensive core like Skarmory/Gliscor/Cresselia/Blissey on almost every team :P) aren't really sufficient in the more recent metagames. Teambuilding nowadays is more about having a solid strategy to win rather than about filling in all of the gaps.

        I recently graduated in Geology and most of my time in the last few months has been preoccupied with trying to get a job in the mining industry. The economy in that sector isn't great right now but it's predicted to grow soon, and I've seen a few opportunities come up every now and again. I'm currently living in the UK and there's a good chance I may move abroad to somewhere like Canada or Australia to find work. I've been sort of bumming around a bit on a desk job in the meantime which isn't glamorous but it pays the bills.

        Anyway, great seeing you again - makes me wonder if there's anyone else we know still lurking around :D

        Katsura sent me a single PM on Marriland in...late gen 5, I think? but that's about it, haven't seen hide nor hair of them since. tried to check up on my old marriland account but when they got bought up by curse it wanted to resend a verification email and I made the account when I was literally 10 years old so i have no clue what email it's tied to. I actually made a new account and was a bit active on marriland in xy but it was a lot less active and the oldest people there were from b/w so I didn't know them. Otherwise yeah it's just jibaku, em, a few other wifi guys, people who i maybe spoke to once or twice but we were never really anything besides acquaintances.

        I actually kinda got gud at pokemon at some point, I'm still not quite sure how it happened. I only touched a bit of b/w (dropped it before it even got a western release) but I played a lot of XY and SM, even laddered for voting reqs this last suspect test and got them (gene was robbed). I think it helps that I never learned to play d/p/p so I didnt have any bad habits to fall back on!

        I think we're in a similar boat irl. I graduated in Biology last year and haven't really done much since...not really optimistic about a future career but I guess anything can happen.

        i'm convinced no-one ever really leaves pokemon, they always seem to come back eventually. especially at the start of a new gen, I'm sure all sorts of old faces are crawling about.

        Basically the opposite for me; I haven't played much XY or SM but I've played a lot of BW. Cool to know you got reqs in the latest suspect test! :) I only ever got them once (Lando-I in BW2, iirc).
