{{UserUnless Windows|XP}}stated otherwise, my edits are my own thoughts and not reflective of the opinion of the administration as a whole; if I am utilizing administrative authority (which I typically avoid doing), I will indicate as such. If I make an edit or talk page comment that you disagree with, I encourage you to challenge me on it (although I'm notoriously bad at keeping up-to-date on my talk page). Note that this only applies to me and has no implications on how other staff members utilize their authority.

==History==
NowI've been a part of the online Pokémon fandom since 2007, when I knowjoined nobodythe usuallyBulbasaur's caresMysterious aboutGarden theseforums; thingshowever, butI was a Pokémon fan long before that. It wasn't until late 2009 when I feeljoined obligatedBulbapedia, at which point I started by editing parts of {{bp|Project GlitchDex}}. The first article I edited was [[list of glitch moves]], because I saw that there were glitch Pokémon missing from the learnlists that were listed to includelearn those glitch moves on their own pages. I then ended up going through all the glitch Pokémon articles and updating them into the newest style. I eventually began to edit other articles outside of that region, and now I'm an all-round editor (although I focus on the Pokémon games). I ended up splitting the minor glitches section of [[glitch]] into its own article, [[list of minor glitches]], because it was getting edited so much and getting quite long. FeelSince then, that list freegrew to skipsuch a proportion that I split it into lists of glitches by generation. Now I lead Project GlitchDex, and know of a lot of glitches that need to thebe sectionsdocumented belowhere (notthat aren't that I couldkeep stopmeaning youto anyway)get around to. I do a lot of different things around the wiki though.

I==Useful like writing articles about topics that people tend not to know about, mainly in order to change that;tools for example, [[Pokémon mini]] games, Sega Pico and Beena games (like [[Pokémon Advanced Generation: I've Begun Hiragana and Katakana!]]), Perdue farms games (like [[Pokémon Team Rocket Blast Off]]), and [[PokéPark: Fishing Rally DS]]. If I mentioned a game (or group of games) you've never heard of, then I am very happy that I was able to show youwiki it.editing==

* [http://pcn.loc.gov/isbncnvt.html ISBN converter] - for converting between ISBN-10 and ISBN-13 (adds "978-" to the start of ISBN-10); also checks if ISBN has a valid checksum and inserts hyphens (use in combination with [[Special:BookSources]])
 
I===Image was promoted to temporary Junior Admin during the Japanese release of Pokémon Black and White to help with updating pages during the lockdown. After the lock was lifted, my powers became permanent, and I became a true Junior Administrator. In early January, I found that I was trusted on the Archives as well, and had been given Junior Administrator rights. In March, I was promoted to Admin on Bulbapedia, then on the Archives too shortly after. Less than a week after my Archives promotion, I was given as staff position on Bulbanews during the staff restructure—Writer. In early May, I was appointed Project GlitchDex Leader (after applying for it). In September 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Adminstrator on the Archives. In November 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Writer on Bulbanews. In December 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Administrator on Bulbapedia, making me a Bulbawiki Senior Citizen, a self-coined term, and apparently shared with {{u|Bikini Miltank}}. In April 2012, I was promoted to member of the {{n|Bulbanews:Board of editors|Bulbanews board of editors}}, which also resulted in me getting moderator powers in the [http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f280/ Bulbanews forum] on the forums. In June 2012, I was promoted to member of the [[a:Archives:Advisory Council|Archives Advisory Council]]. In August 2012, I was promoted to a Bureaucrat on Bulbapedia, so now I have to learn how to spell it.tools===

==Pet peeves==
*I hate ampersands (&). I think they look ugly and avoid using them outside of titles that already have them.
*I cannot stand {{wp|Acronym and initialism|acronym and initialisms}} written with periods between the letters but not after the final letter. I don't know where people get the idea that this is correct, but this is my absolute biggest pet peeve. If you don't know how to use the periods, don't use them at all—they are not compulsory.

==Shiny stories==
All {{pkmn2|wild}} [[Shiny Pokémon]] I have ever encountered (obviously discounting [[red Gyarados]]) have been in the [[Safari Zone]]. Not only that, but the only Safari Zone that I haven't encountered a Shiny in is the [[Great Marsh]], which isn't even a real Safari Zone.
* [[Kanto Safari Zone]] — {{p|Paras}} (caught) and {{p|Exeggcute}} (failed)
* [[Johto Safari Zone]] — {{p|Cubone}} (failed)
* [[Hoenn Safari Zone]] — {{p|Stantler}} (caught)
Also, I encountered that Exeggcute with '''1 [[Safari Ball]] left'''. I threw it, but it escaped and I was kicked out.<br>Also, I have a Shiny Gyarados clone from my friend who caught it as a {{p|Magikarp}} in Sapphire. That is why I was hoping that the guaranteed red Gyarados would have some kind of difference to other Shiny ones, but it didn't.
