    ^-^ Friendly part is easy, since I like people anyway. I will try to crack out of my shell and talk to people. XD Bery shy. And thank you. :3

    You may want to check out the Pre-PAX dinner. I went there knowing almost no one and left with a bunch of new names and a couple of funny pictures. It's a great ice breaker.

    I think this past year's PPD went pretty well. It was kinda crazy for me as the host but it seemed like a ton of people were conversing and getting to know each other.

    I figure this is as good a place as any to make my first post. I went to PAX East '11 with Zerzhul, but was never actually on the forums before, but with East '12 on the horizon, I figure I should make more of an effort to be social (on the internet).

    So, hi!

    Hey man! I'm glad you're coming back to East next year. Looking forward to hanging with you again.

    XD Hi, I am a girl. And that's cool! I am very happy I can finally go with someone now. I might bump into my other friend, but it's nice to know you have some to hang with. :) I totally accept your offer! I don't know how old you are, but I am going to be 19 next year. XD Hope you don't mind my age.
    Not an issue. You'll have to deal with someone who acts like a kid in the candy store on the con show floor. I'll also be the ripe old age of 22 at next PAX East. (I colour my hair because I like the way it looks, not to hide the grey... I swear!)

    But hey, as you get closer, try to find people on here who want to do the same things you do as well. And I highly recommend the pre-PAX events if you can make it. Be in the pub crawl, the board games, dinner, whatever. All are great ways to meet people. So are lines - you have at least one thing in common with the people next to you there.
    Cannot echo this enough as well for everyone. I can honestly say I would not have had as much fun as I did if it were not for all the amazing people I met from participating in the Pax Pokemon League. Mucho <3 for you all.

    XD It's fine. I'm like a kid too when it comes to this stuff. So we're both alright on this. LOL

    I'm just hoping that I dont have anything come up that interferes with the PPD next year. I'm willing to miss it for a Bruins game but nothing else.

    Anaway, feel free to hang out with my crowd! I'm always looking to meet awesome folks. The handheld lounge was a great area to meet people, I found.

    Rdr - sorry this is so late, I totally forgot to follow up on this thread.... but HI! I won't forget that we still have to battle!

    All this hockey talk is making me think about my poor, poor Leafs. Ah jeez... I wanted Richards, not Connolly. It's a shame the Leafs aren't playing Boston during next PAX East, I'd be all over that.

    Not to worry, Anaway, Gameshark is just a flustered wittle husky puppy cause he's afraid of getting his butt whooped by a little girl. He's not always this annoying - in fact, he grows on you after awhile, so I hope you'll still consider hanging out with us.

    Oh man, I'm already imagining rolling deep at next PAX East with a huge posse. That is of course until I eventually get lost from everyone when I run off after spotting shinny thing. Ha.. ha... oh it's so sad because it'll eventually become true.

    I need to fret over Prime for now, but when we get closer to East this thread has inspired me to plan a reunion for everyone. It will be quite "legit."

    I know the feeling Trion :P I haven't been keeping up with these forums, but I've been fully aware of my pokemon-related goals for the next East gathering, and trust me, I have been working tirelessly.

    And holy crap, everyone is here!...despite the fact that I only met a few of you face to face! >.> Hopefully I'll see the rest of you next year.

    Last time I was marred with last minute planning issues and shoddy note taking. The amount of failed meet ups is staggering. I should get an achievement for it.

    This being said I will concentrate on this for next year, and also, will actively seek out those of us who are early birds to do something. Not necessarely an official activity, but I noticed on Twitter that we a good bunch that do wake up around 5 in the morning.

    YOU. ROCK. Okay then, it's not that I don't remember meeting you, it's that I didn't associate this username with you - it has been fixed.

    Also - I agree with the meetup idea. Let's just see if we remember to plan everything when we have the info to do it hahahaha

    And I too will be keeping an eye on this thread to see what kind of meetings develop. I'm sure I'll wind up getting involved in some kind of community even. Those are the best!

    Has this become the new PPL thread or something? Everybody's here!

    I'm somewhat disappointed by the fact that East 2012 is on Easter Weekend (though it's better than the same dates in March, which are my midterms). I'll probably still be able to go; I'll just need to talk my mom and grandmother into letting me (wait, that might be harder than I thought. My grandma's the "you need to go to church because you need to go to church" type). I really want to go, though, and I'll try my best to get there.

    (If you don't remember me, it might be because I have more of a tendency to lurk than post, and I didn't get to talk to many of you at PAX (because of my tendency to lurk rather than introduce myself). I was the guy with the Ash hat (that's not specific enough, is it? If you battled me, odds are my Breloom annoyed the hell out of you).)

    And Poetic, I did get and respond to your message over on the PPL forums, but you might not have seen that because they seem to get less traffic than these.

    I don't want to suggest anything illegal on the PA forums, because that would be in bad form.

    You people are giving me some serious PAX itch. Which is brutal, because the next east is a long way away yet.

    However, if I can make it, I will. And this time, I'm doing it on my terms. Hell, I don't think many of my friends will make it out anyway. That means hitting the pre-PAX dinner and meeting more of you (Like Frugus, my fellow Canadian), and seeing the town a bit before things start.

    Only person from here I met (that I know of) was Rdr. Though I do have a picture of my friend with RainbowTunnel.
