Why I joined Bulbapedia
I joined Bulbapedia around the end of July 2009, with the goal of improving the quality of Gen IV maps.
Gen IV maps are exceedingly hard to map. This is due to the use of 3D models instead of 2D sprites and tiles. Also, because DS emulation is still incomplete, it is incredibly hard to get good screenshots for the maps. Finally, while Gen I, II, III were all based on tiles and sprites, Gen IV uses 3D models, placed in a grid to simulate the older sprite-based style.
I thought it was about time I gave back to Bulbapedia, the site that gave me such much help in the Pokemon games. I decided to do something which would not be too hard for me. So I chose to help map Sinnoh, since the Sinnoh maps were horrible. Also, there was only one other person mapping Sinnoh, Cadellin, and I felt sorry for them.
