Hi there! I'm Soulweaver and you just landed on my user page. I'm currently 26 years old and live in Finland. I was around when the Pokémon fever took off, I saw the game overhaul in the third generation, and I also got to see the second generation games eventually being ascended to the legendary status by the fandom and then the release of their long waited remakes. I was among the first people to play Black and White in English, Black being the first game I had ever preordered, and Pokémon X was also the most important reason for me to ultimately obtain a 3DS XL. I've practically lived most of my life with Pokémon, and for my age, while it surely isn't exceptional, it isn't that usual to still be around either. I graduated from the upper secondary school in Spring 2010 and began studying in Tampere University of Technology later that year.
History on Bulbagarden
I started in Bulbagarden as a regular Bulbapedia reader but started contributing in 2007 when I created an account under the name UltimateSephiroth to add a description for the Gen II only item Brick Piece. I only truly became active starting in 2008 when I began to add Finnish episode names and upload fixed size Gold sprites. Shortly after I got my first and, to date, last editing block to Bulbapedia for moving multiple pages without administrator approval or common consensus. I learned my lesson for sure.
My peak editing activity was between November 2008 and January 2009, netting me two spots in the monthly top contributors lists. For some reason, I stopped editing actively a bit later; I've still had bursts of activity later on though. I also worked hard in the Bulbagarden Archives, and as such I was given the position of an administrator in October 2009. My activity has known to be quite fluctuating there as well. I was also the head of the somewhat obscure Project SpriteDex from November 2009 till October 2012.
I joined the forums shortly after my editing block, originally only to report an accessibility error for Bulbapedia. Eventually I delved into other sections and began posting a bit more, though. Most notably, I was around when the Trade Center was started up: I had one of the first trade shops there and I was also a rather active trader in general. Early in January 2010, just days after I won a copy of SoulSilver preorder from the forum skin contest among the various Christmas Contests held by Bulbagarden (with a skin that was never realized due to forum upgrade to vBulletin 4), I was asked if I wanted to join the staff over there. That's when I became a moderator in the Shop Subcenter. In March, I was promoted to moderate the whole Trade Center, and later I became a Super Moderator and the head of the that section as well. In 2012, I was also the head of The Land of the Rising Sun for a short while. In October 2012, I stepped down from my positions for personal reasons.
I changed my name from UltimateSephiroth to Soulweaver in December 2010 on the forums and in January 2014 in the wikispace.
In the past, I received these accolades on Bulbagarden's wikis:
