From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Well, let's see...I've been a fan of the series probably since the show premiered in the US. My first game was Yellow, and I've gotten every main series game since then except for Blue and LeafGreen. I'm also a fan of the Mystery Dungeon games, the Orre games, and Ranger. Actually, I'm probably a Pokémaniac in every sense of the word.
I have consitantly watched the anime for as long as I can remember. Been reading Adventures since 2008.
As far as gaming goes, I generally don't give a crap about EVs, IVs, Natures, or "perfect" movesets. Karen from the Johto games sums up my feelings perfectly with her defeated quote:
"Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish peeception of people. Truly skilled Trainers should try to win with the Pokémon they love best."
