I somehow managed to successfully create this forum account and receive the activation email for it, but did not receive an account activation email for the game. Here's what happened:
First I tried to register the game account name blossom, but accidentally typed in the wrong email address. Okay, that was entirely my fault.
Second, I tried to create a game account pokemama, with my correct hotmail address, but did not receive an activation email. (2.5 hours)
Third, I registered for this forum and successfully received an activation email at my correct hotmail address. (Obviously, lol.)
Fourth, I tried to create another game account name, kech, and this time was advised "e-mail address already taken".
Help, please? I just want to create a game account named pokemama or blossom - obviously my character name would be different. Please let me know if there's something I'm doing wrong. Thanks.
