About me

My username derives from the fact that I am (so) Vietnamese and I was born in the 1990's.

I am eighteen years old, a senior in high school, and live in Idaho, United States. I plan to go to college somewhere in the northern half of the country and enter the medical field. (cough... Pokémon doctor... cough...) I enjoy Latin and science classes, while I hate English and history classes; to relax my nerves, I play Pokémon Emerald right on my phone (How convenient!).

I began playing Pokémon in 2005, when I was in second grade. My friend Sam Smith, no, not the famous one was playing Pokémon Ruby, which got me interested. (I actually got addicted to playing it so much that my grades slumped in that semester...) For my birthday that year, I got my most prized game yet. At that point, my interests skyrocketed, and I bought several other games over the years, including Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, and Pokémon SoulSilver. One of my goals was to catch all the Pokémon, of course, so I needed a website to help me out. If you want a link to it, it's right here.

Background to Bulbapedia

I first discovered Bulbapedia in 2007, and since then, if I need help on my game that had no connection to cheating, Bulbapedia would be my number one choice. It wasn't until 2012 that I decided to help out with the wiki. Except I had no account and I couldn't edit anything. And so, I kept Bulbapedia on my side list for a long time.

Many months later, the iPhone app VBA4iOS was released, and I could finally play Emerald on my phone! My interests were restored and I returned to trying to create an account. Finally it worked (as well as one on the Archives), and I have been helping out ever since. Well... at least when I have the time.

Feel free to leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions about my work.


  • I've fixed several DP back sprites
  • I've expanded quotes for several Hoenn characters
  • I've made many 60 FPS animations for Gen III moves


My Emerald party is currently in training...

Tentative plans

  • Add in any missing information on the Hoenn region (e.g. map layout, screenshots of buildings, etc.)
    • Add in any missing quotes
    • Add in any missing screenshots, sprites, locations, etc.
  • Update any imperfect move animations for Gen III
  • Optimize Gen II move animations
