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've got 2 main handheld versions in each generation (not counting remakes), and quite a few side games as well. I also played the TCG for a few years when I was younger. 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 worked on Yellow after that, then reformatted the FireRed/LeafGreen guide. Like with Gold/Silver, it took me about two months, but I've finally completed the walkthrough for HeartGold/SoulSilver. I was then promoted to Project Leader in November 2010, and completed the Black/White walkthrough in July 2011. I have finally amassed over 1500 (total) edits; that sounds like a lot, but most of them were in the Appendix namespace. 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 train species of all types, though my favorites are Dragon, Ice, Flying, Water, and Grass. Articuno is my favorite legendary (and the first one I ever caught). My favorite Pokémon are those with a strong offense, because I don't normally drag a battle out with support moves. I had completed a living Pokédex in my Diamond version, all 493 species, before transferring a decent amount to my Black version. I have an Action Replay, but I use it to make the game harder, not easier. I use it to get event legendaries that I wouldn't otherwise have access to, and also to train my teams against wild species at level 100. I don't normally battle over Wi-Fi, but if you'd like a friendly battle, don't hesitate to ask.
