With the unexpected changes brought by B2W2, I finally had myself a Magnemite in Unova! But what about the rest? I insisted on staying with Gen V Pokemon for the rest of the team. Emboar proved to be powerful, but lacking a friendly movepool. Rather aggravating having to gain BP to earn Brick Break just to give him something to use. Archeops had to be traded in (thanks Jo the Marten), but he is a beast. Give it {{m|Acrobatics}} and it will tear teams apart. His defenses are terrible, but he was usually fast enough to OHKO anyway. The moveset changes were kind to Magnemite, giving him Flash Canon, but the TM changes meant Shock Wave was no longer available. Volt Switch is annoying to use in single player. Simipour had to be traded in (thanks again to Jo) because there's no way I'm going to wait for the tiny chance for one to pop-up. She proved to be just fast enough and just strong enough to provide the power I needed. Krookodile is awesome. Defenses were terrible, but he did't care, he would rock the earth of just eat his opponents. Basculin rounded out as an HM slave. I was using a Leavanny (named Tivanny) for a while, and while she did a good job, I didnt want to saddle anyone with Cut and Dive. Basculin never saw battle.

Defenses were terrible, but he didn't care, he would rock the earth or just eat his opponents. The last spot changed hands a few times, but I eventually settled on Leavanny. I used her for a while, but I didn't want to saddle anyone with Cut and Dive. Basculin initially rounded out as an HM slave and never saw battle, but once I found out that Dive wasn't necessary at all, I brought Leavanny back. She is quite handy for dealing with Water/Ground Pokémon and is classy as hell (while she tears opponents in half).

Introduction

I am an Executive Policymaker of Bulbapedia, a Vice-Webmaster of Bulbagarden, and former Editor-in-Chief of Bulbapedia. I joined on December 9, 2007, worked hard enough to get nominated for a staff position, and clawed my way up from there. That's right, you too can be EiC. All it takes is hard work, dedication, and all those other inspirational things you hear about getting ahead in life. After being EiC for a while, I decided that I wanted to focus on the user experience. My main goal as EiC is to make everything easier to understand and help my fellow user find the page they want as efficiently as possible, and when they get there, I want it to be full of all the juicy info you need organized around some fancy and colorful templates.

I've been a fan since Gen I, but near the end of Gen II, I lost interest. After seeing Beautifly, I figured Game Freak had run out of original ideas, so I skipped Ruby and Sapphire, but the remakes of Gen I brought me back. Thanks to FireRed and LeafGreen, I also invested a little time checking out Gen III Pokémon, and came to the realization, that some of them were actually pretty original. As for Gen IV, well, I wasn't going to jump in, but after a friend of mine did first, I decided, why not? I had to try out the all new Magnezone and get in on that Wi-Fi action. While looking for info to educate myself on what I missed during my Poké-hiatus, I found Bulbapedia. The rest is history.

On December 9, 2012, exactly 5 years after joining Bulbapedia, I decided to step down from my position as Editor-in-Chief. You can read about my decision in this message from the editor. Thanks to all the staff and fans for helping out during my tenure. I'm not leaving though, so don't worry, I'll still be around.

Teams

My teams follow a simple pattern.

  1. Starter
  2. Flyer
  3. Magnemite
  4. Surfer
  5. Earthquake-er
  6. HM slave/Powerhouse

Certain Pokémon get placed in the same position. However, Flygon on my Sapphire team is a good example of how this isn't always the case. I don't know why or how I started doing things this way, but, it's nice to be organized. It should be noted though that this doesn't mean I'm going to send the same Pokémon out first every time if you battle me online.
