About Me

I'm a writer for Bulbanews, so most of the stuff I upload on this website is for Bulbanews articles.

Having been born in the year of 2000, I was unable to witness the releases of some of history's greatest video games. But that did not stop me from playing them! My first system was an Atomic Grape Gameboy Color, with Kirby's Dream Land and Pokémon Blue Version being my first games. Throughout my life I have gained and lost interests, but the one thing that still stands tall is my love for Pokémon. I have played through all six generations of the iconic franchise, and my favorite one out of the bunch has to be Generation III. Pokémon Emerald is my favorite video game not just out of the Pokémon series but of all time. My favorite Pokémon species would have to be Kadabra because it was on my Elite Four Team in Blue, it was my first trading card (Dark Kadabra from the Team Rocket set to be exact) and I find the whole fracas Uri Geller had with Nintendo quite amusing.

And how I came to be a writer for Bulbanews? Well, for years I have relied on this site to provide me with the latest Pokémon news. Heck, I even check the site every morning when I wake up. Then, on September 30th, 2014, they were holding staff drives for the site. I thought that it might be fun to write for a website whose purpose is to keep the Pokémon community informed, so I signed up. About a month later, I got an e-mail saying that I was accepted for the writer position on the website. My first article, which was written on October 31st, 2014, was on the v.1.3 software patch to Pokémon X and Y. I have been writing for Bulbanews ever since!

Other Interests

I am an aspiring artist; my career goal/dream job is to be a cartoonist. Television cartoons have been a big part of my childhood, and I would like to return the favor. I also love music. My favorite genre is Classic Rock, and my favorite band is Queen. I am also a Libertarian, not that anyone knows what that is. :P

Shiny Encounters

Despite having played the Pokémon series for almost a decade now, I had never encountered a shiny Pokémon in the wild (save for the Red Gyarados in GSC/HGSS) until Generation VI. I have videos for every shiny that I catch as to have documented evidence of my shinies. You can see them here:

  • FIRSTIES!!! the Luvdisc - October 16th, 2014 - CAUGHT - I caught this fellow while chain fishing the little critters in Pokémon Y. I was not actually trying to find a shiny, I was chaining them to get Heart Scales. I was only on my sixth encounter when I got this golden beauty. Caught it in an Ultra Ball.
  • UpperBodyDay the Makuhita - November 21st, 2014 - CAUGHT - I was playing through Pokémon Omega Ruby on the day of its release. I was in Granite Cave and this red Makuhita was my first encounter in the area. Caught it in a Poké Ball.
