Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.
Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.
Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?
I don't have a screenshot, but I always thought that Sailor on the SS Anne who accosts you as soon as you walk into his cabin with 'I like feisty kids like you!' was super creepy.
Although not as creepy as this guy:
Found these on tumblr.
I don't think I've ever noticed that Slateport dude
I could be wrong but it looks like Game Freak in Lilycove. Which means you can't justify it with "maybe in-universe there are older tubers, you just don't see them", because he's aware that it's a game and that all the tubers are really young.
So yeah, creepy :P
