My account's name comes from the Pokémon Colosseum character. I also use this username on Wikipedia. (Should be obvious that my Wikipedia user page is more complete and less serious than my user page here.) I typically go by GastonRabbit if I'm not going by Evice.
I am an American born on April 21, 1989, and have been playing Pokémon games since I bought Blue on its (North American) release. I currently own all main Pokémon games released in North America (in English), in addition to a Japanese copy of Emerald and a Japanese copy of SoulSilver.
Other than the games, pretty much the only other Pokémon media I'm into would be the manga (mostly Pokémon Adventures and Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!).
I primarily use Mozilla Firefox as my Web browser and Ubuntu as my operating system. (Windows Vista, my secondary operating system, is on a separate partition; I also use Firefox on it.) I use the US International keyboard layout on both operating systems, which makes typing Pokémon easier due to the layout's diacritic support.
I also like shorts. (They're comfy and easy to wear.)
(Despite the above statement, I'd fit better in the Super Nerd Trainer class.)
This is my Pokédex status for the DS games. I might be too lazy to keep it up-to-date at times.

These are the Pokémon in my parties in the DS games.
The fact that half my party is male and half is female is a coincidence. I didn't
waste spend as much time with Diamond as with Platinum.
I have no idea why the only female Pokémon I ended up with was the one least likely to be female. Also, I have not played Pearl as much as Diamond and Platinum (especially the latter).
Unlike my level 100 teams in Red and Blue, which were the result of abuse of the Item duplication glitch, my Platinum levels (which are all 100) are the result of lots and lots of wasted time. I went with the same starter as in Diamond because I already had Piplup and didn't want to start with it.
Didn't play this as much as both copies of SoulSilver.
All except Machamp and Magnezone have their names displayed in Japanese (those two were evolved on my English-language games)
This is my main game between my copies of HGSS.
