I started in Generation II with Gold. I was brought into Pokémon by an Arcanine (Base Set 23) TCG card, and it makes me sad that I always seem to choose the version where I cannot get it. My first starter Pokémon was a Cyndaquil and I've always kept him by my side. I then backtracked and played Blue and Yellow, where Pikachu got replaced pretty quickly by my Nidoqueen to complete the game, and I've stuck with it four generations later. My brother has always been alongside me in getting the other version and being my rival, especially since both our starter choices follow a cycle. I go Grass-Fire-Water and he went Fire-Water-Grass until he chose Snivy, although it's just coincedence. He stopped playing after D/P and has since found a profession dealing Pokémon on the GTS but my other little brother got HeartGold and a guy I go to high school with got White, making them like new rivals to me. I have recently dipped into competitive battling and I used to watch the anime but I don't really like it anymore but I occasionally read Pokémon Adventures. As far as spin-offs go I have played the first Mystery Dungeon which I really enjoyed and I also played the first two Pokémon Ranger games which I also enjoyed very much.
I honestly don't work on pokemon's EVs or IVs I just keep going through the Elite Four until the pokemon hits Lv. 100. I EV trained my SS and Black team though, mainly after I got owned on Random Matchup. My favorite Types are Poison-type, Ground-type, and Dark-type with some minor affection towards Grass-type and Bug-type, as well as Fossil Pokémon being a huge favorite. I don't use Legendaries in Multiplayer (yes, even non-Uber) because then it just isn't fun anymore and it feels like cheating. The place listed as my location is my favorite city of the region.
If it is holding an Exp. Share that means I'm busy training it to Lv. 100.
I EV trained my team but first I caught these Pokémon but didn't use them through Story Mode (I will create my "sentimental team" on my imagination teams page, they would be who I use against the Elite Four and such) and then making eggs with my caught Team to make my competitive team, making my original team like grandparents/great grandparents (I didn't do this with Typhlosion, however).
I made my own profile for my imagination, which more resembles my favorite teams then my real ones. basically Ash met me in Hoenn which was where I was working on getting the eight badges for the Hoenn League. I had already came in first in the Indigo league and the Johto League. Every new region I would start over and get a new starter pokemon from that respective region. I also traveled with Ash during the Battle Frontier era where I used my Kanto and Johto pokemon and I eventually beat Brandon (not very realistic, I know).
