Hello there! My real name is David, but in the internet I'm mainly known as (TheReal)Hayo so it's up to you how you call me! :)
Here in the Bulbapedia I will focus on aspects of the Pokémon games. I'd say that I have a quite wide experience with regards to collecting Pokémon in any region, owning at least one game of each generation.
However, I know most about Johto and Sinnoh and the respective generations Generation II and Generation IV in which I rambled several hundred hours. I know, I wasted a lot of time :) Actually, I still do! O.O
I'm also always looking for minor mistakes everywhere. Another thing I want to do is to fill out the blanks concerning german Pokémon, item or place names.
I got infected by the Pokérus in my (early) childhood and it got even stronger in the years to follow. Recently, I discovered Bulbapedia and think it's useful like no other site in the internet, so I decided to contribute my own little knowledge to the community.
Because I'm a new guy here, I'm just trying to use some templates to understand the whole structure of MediaWiki. This user page is based on Nuva-kal's (User:Nuva-kal) because I really like the style and thought I could use it as a starting point.
My general philosophy against perfectionism when playing the games:
- "I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones." (original signature spreaded by Tyranitar in the serebiiforums)
I just got the US version of Pokémon Platinum, so I'm playing like crazy XD
- I still have 77 Pokémon to see and 184 to catch in Pokémon Platinum.
- I decided to create a really nice team, so I'm currently training these Pokémon in Platinum:
- Recently, I started (serious) shiny chaining and so I got my first shiny Pokémon ever (except for the Red Gyarados in Pokémon Silver of course). I really never had any luck with 'em... Well, it's time for a change! ;)
