From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Obviously, I don't spend much time playing Pokémon, or other video games for that matter, it's just a hobby. I play and pretty much study baseball, and anyone who knows baseball should know that my username is my favorite player on my favorite team, the Mets.
My Philosophy on Pokémon/ This Website
I love strategy games, and Pokémon is my favorite. I've been playing since the games first came out; from Red and Yellow all the way through HeartGold and soon, Black. I never have and never will watch the anime; it's stupid and meant for 7 year olds. I think anyone who supports any shipping or whatever is kinda weird (no offense lolz). I also don't play the trading card game, I just battle. I'm pretty damn good too; I love coming up with powerful teams and movesets. I don't fill the Pokéedex, I usually just spend my Pokémon time now in the Battle Factory, perfecting my team, or battling on wifi. I'll post my teams when I get around to it. I also hate legendaries, and I'll never use one on any team. They're cheap, too powerful, and aren't a challenge to battle with. All of the Pokémon on my teams are EV trained, and have my preferred natures and personalities, and I prefer teams with Pokémon that have few type weaknesses.
My favorite games are Gold and Red, so I also play their remakes; HeartGold and FireRed. I always restart FireRed and play through it with a type oriented team. After I beat the Elite Four, I migrate my team to HeartGold.
