| Due to an increase in schoolwork, I will be less active with Project Walkthroughs than I have been. |
I'll still be checking my talk page for new messages, so I'll reply if you contact me. This will likely last until mid-May.
Pokémon has been a favorite pastime since I had seen a few bits of the anime's first season, back when it first aired in the US. I got my Red version in October 1998, and I was hooked. I followed that up with a bunch more; 2 or 3 main handheld versions, and quite a few side games as well. In my opinion, each generation gets better and better. Better graphics, longer storyline, and yes, an extra 100-or-so beasts to track down. Call it tedious, call a few species uninspired, but I enjoy it. I was also involved in the TCG for a few years. I will always love the games, and am in the process of watching a bunch of anime episodes and movies that I've missed. I've started reading through Pokémon Special too, though currently I've only gotten to the Yellow chapter.
My goal on Bulbapedia
I had known about Bulbapedia for a while before finally registering an account on September 17, 2008. I originally registered for the sole purpose of fixing spelling and grammar mistakes that I had found, but soon learned of all the different projects that were around. It seemed that almost everything was taken care of, except for Project Walkthroughs. The place was pretty dead when I first found it, so I've sort of made it my mission to see it completed. I started off by building on the Red & Blue walkthrough last summer, picking up after the first page or two where the last person had left off. Once that was finished, I started the Gold & Silver walkthrough from scratch, and eventually completed it with little outside input. I'm still a small-time editor, at last check I had over 950 (total) edits to my name. My goal (besides seeing the entire 'Pedia finished one day) is to assist in bringing about complete, comprehensive walkthroughs for every applicable game in the Pokémon series.
Ambitious much? ;)

I don't battle competitively, so I don't worry about EVs or IVs. I train my teams until they all reach level 100, that's good enough for me. I train species of all types, though my favorites are Dragon, Ice, Flying, and Water. Articuno is my favorite legendary (the first one I ever caught), and my preferred method of aerial transport. My favorite teams are fighters that can hit fast and hard, since I focus more on the offensive aspect rather than many defensive or support moves. I have completed a living Pokédex in my Diamond version, all 493 species. Yes, I do have an Action Replay, though I typically only use it for event legendaries.
