With that in mind...
I'm Dougbro1, and I became an editor of Bulbapedia in May 2022. I've been a Pokémon fan for quite some time now, ever since I received my first Pokémon card, a Voltorb (which was sadly ripped in two, but I taped it back together and keep it safely in my room as a memoir of that day).
My first experience with the main series games was via the collector's edition of Pokémon Black and White: Prima's Official Strategy Guide, owned by my cousin, whom I also watched play Platinum and White. I also watched the entirety of the XY anime series before I familiarized myself with all the existing main series games and ESPECIALLY came to love the music. The first main series release that I was on the hype train for as soon as the first trailer was out was Sword and Shield, and in my opinion, it lived up to the hype! I like to consider myself an "all-Genner," a huge fan of all the games and regions represented within. I'm a huge optimist when it comes to new game releases and I tend to keep an open mind. To this day, I have never been truly disappointed by any release during my time as a Pokémon fan.
I eventually learned about a few of the more famous spin-off series and got a general sense of them in and out. Favourite spin-offs include the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series and Pokémon Masters EX.
A little over a year before I was an editor, I joined the Bulbagarden Discord server, and the community there is amazing! I joined Bulbapedia as an editor because I have an ardent desire to help others in their searches for anything Pokémon related, in whatever ways I feel able to.
You can find me in the Bulbagarden Discord if you wanna chat, or if it's related to Bulbapedia, use the associated talk pages.
Until next time...
Smell ya later!
