Who Am I?
Hello, PokeManiacs worldwide! I am Benjamin Kalik, A.K.A Lord Machamp.
Evidently, based off of my user-name, I am also referred to as the Duke of Trumpet.
My Pokemon journey begins in the year 2003.
I was given a tin of 'original' Pokemon cards- first printing, original design/artwork, and all first Gen.
In the following years, I pretty much forgot about Pokemon Card collecting until 2007.
I began trading and battling non-stop, crushing my opponents with a mighty Cross Chop via Machamp- and thus creating my title as 'Lord Machamp'.
I wasn't a dueling prodigy, and Yugioh! was still what I was best at, so I choose to invest in Yugioh! instead of Pokemon.
It was probably a bad decision.
In 2008, I played through LeafGreen on a good 'ol Gameboy.
In 2009, I played through Platinum. In 2010, my entire Pokemon collection was stolen. All 5000 cards. All of them.
I gave up on Pokemon. Let's zoom past a few years of Yugioh! shall we?
In August of 2013, I picked up Platinum again, and started over.
I beat the game in two weeks. I was a newb, and it wasn't easy.
I hadn't a clue what EV training was, or what a 'shiny' Pokemon was. Mesuda? I would have told you 'what the hell is that?"
In September, I found a guy who was a complete Pokemon 'Master'.
He taught me the ins and outs, and I loved the game so much that I began programming new Pokemon material, and learning the coding for the game.
I played through FireRed 3 times, and beat Black 1 in two days.
I am the Facts and Info Director at the Holcomb Pokemon Alliance Foundation now.
I currently spend most of my time breeding and grinding Pokemon for stats. Want one? Shiny? Naive nature? Email Me. Done.
