I am a 15 year old boy born in New York. My name is Zach. I'm in 10th grade. I started playing Pokémon since around 2004. My first Pokémon game was Pokémon LeafGreen Version (which I foolishly almost sold back to GameStop!). I got several Pokémon games in 2005, such as Emerald, XD (I even have the XD decals you get for preordering the game) and probably others such, as Colosseum & Channel. My first video game system was either a GameCube or a GBA. Eventually, I would get a red GBA SP, which becomes my handheld of choice until I get a DS. I used to have a lot of GBA & GameCube games, but sold back a handful of them (not the Pokémon, Mario & Zelda ones, as those are my 3 favorite video game franchises.
Now we move into the DS & Wii era. I got ton of Pokémon games for the DS and just shows how Pokémon is my favorite handheld series. I have Diamond (got recently from a friend), Pearl (2007), Platinum (2009), SoulSilver (2010), White (2011), White 2 (2012), Blue Rescue Team (2006), Explorers of Time (2008), Explorers of Sky (2009), Ranger (2006), Shadows of Almia (2009) & Guardian Signs (2010). I'm a very big main series, PMD & Ranger fan. The Wii didn't have the greatest Pokémon games, unlike the Gamecube, but I still have a few Pokémon Wii games (along with one Pokémon Wii VC & WiiWare game). I have Pokémon Battle Revolution (2008), Brawl (2008), My Pokémon Ranch (2008) Pokémon Snap (not sure, will say later) & PokéPark 2 (2012).
Now the most recent era, the 3DS & Wii U! I sold back my DS Lite (which I got in 2007 and I also used to have an original DS, which I got for my birthday in 2005), so I could get an Aqua Blue 3DS for my birthday in 2011. There hasn't been any notable retail 3DS Pokémon games that interest me yet. For 3DS eshop games, I have Pokédex 3D (2011), Pokémon Dream Radar (2012) & Pokédex 3D Pro (2012). The Wii U doesn't have any Pokémon games yet, but hopefully the VC will get Gamecube games and could have games like Colosseum & Channel because I can't find Colosseum (either I lost it or sold it back) and my Channel disc doesn't work anymore.
I also own a few non-Nintendo consoles. I have a PS1 (not sure when I got it), PS2 (2007) & Xbox 360 (2010). Of the three, I only really play the 360, which is mainly for DBZ, Naruto and whatever else might interest me.
At the end of the day, I'm mainly a Nintendo fan.
I'm not sure when exactly I first heard about Bulbapedia (maybe in 2008 or something) and have been going on the site for a long time. I constantly check Bulbanews and just look at a lot of Bulbapedia's pages. On February 12, 2011 (the same day BW001 & BW002 aired in the US), I decided to make my own account. I chose the username Torpoleon because I had used it a lot after someone made a fusion of 2 of my favorite fully evolved Starter Pokémon, Torterra & Empoleon.
I've made tons of edits to Bulbapedia, especially when editing was unlocked after B2W2's release. That was really the first time I felt like I was doing a lot (because I was) and it was all pretty fun. The road has been pretty shaky so far, but still an amazing one. I look forward to making more edits to Bulbapedia and hopefully one day, it can be complete!
