From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Oh hai. I'm a past pokemon PvPer that's mostly moved on to Guild Wars PvP (and am active on and sysop some of the Guild Wars Wikis).
I am a firm believer that the handhelds are the only worthwhile part of the pokemon meta-world, so don't expect me to know (or care) about the anime or any hidden backstory. If I edit wrongly based on information presented only in the animes, don't hesitate to revert.
