I started using Bulbapedia in 2008 while playing Pearl version but only joined the forum on 1 January 2011 and I started contributing to Bulbapedia, Bulbagarden Archives and Bulbanews on 7 May 2011. I became a Writer for Bulbanews on 14 December 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Writer on 3 August 2014 and then I was promoted to become a member of Bulbanews's Board of Editors on 9 November 2017.

I started playing Pokémon with Red version in 1999 and have one game of each pair of games and most of the third versions. The versions which I have are Red, Blue, Silver, Crystal, Sapphire, Leaf Green, Emerald, Pearl, Platinum, Soul Silver and from Black and White onwards I started to get both versions at launch date. There are more side games which I have listed in the box of user tags. My favourite types of pokémon are Water, Grass and Electric. I also watch the anime, play the TCG and read the Pokémon Adventures/Special manga.

I'm a Mathematics university student. I'm also a 1st dan (black belt) karateka and part of the committee of the Japanese Society at the university.

Pokémon Video Games

Here are the parties of my Pokémon games. Normally when I start a Pokémon video game I never select New Game and therefore always keep the data which I have made. There are 3 reasons why I do this which are that I like to analyse my parties hence trying to improve them and the parties in the next games, I've downloaded every Pokémon event since the Movie 11 Shaymin event and therefore don't want to lose them and I try to complete the national Pokédex and have done so in Pearl version. I will be updating this section with the parties in each of my games.


I started playing Pokémon in 1999 with Red version when I was 7 so this team may seem unbalanced but I did beat the Elite Four with it.


This is a party which I'm currently working on and I started it in 2011 which is why I have a Mew and a Seel with a bred move of Lick.

Silver and Crystal

I can't remember what my first parties were in these games because I lost Crystal and Silver's battery ran out. I have recently started to play them again by replacing the battery of Silver and buying another Crystal version but I haven't completed them yet.


I have 2 Hall of Fame parties in this game. I can't remember the moves of the pokémon in my first party so I will write the moves which they currently have. These teams also seem unbalanced.

Hall of Fame No. 1


This was my last main series Pokémon game before I took a break from Pokémon for 2 years from 2005 to 2007 and hence includes my last party which I now think is a bit unbalance.


I bought this game preowned while waiting for SoulSilver to release. I have beaten the Elite Four with this team. It was the first game which I have used a Pikachu in my party, the most popular Pokémon.


My original party for Platinum version was very similar to my Pearl version's party so I decided to replace some Pokémon with Pokémon outside Sinnoh Pokédex after the Elite Four.
