Alola! Welcome to my userpage.

About me

Butterfree, the inspiration for my username.

I've been a Pokémon fan since the 1990s, when I played Pokémon Yellow and watched the Pokémon: Indigo League anime as a child. While I continued to like Pokémon and remember a lot about Generation I, I stopped keeping up with Pokémon just before the start of Generation III. But, I've finally got back into the wonderful world of Pokémon with Pokémon Moon and Pokémon GO in 2016.

My username comes from something we did in my frosh dorm in college. One day, we decided to list out which Pokémon everyone was, and my dormmates decided I was the Butterfree of our dorm. And I kind of ran with it!

Pokémon Universe

If I were a character in the Pokémon Universe, my starter would almost certainly be the Grass-type Starter for the region (except for in Unova, where I'd choose Tepig).

Regardless of my Starter choice, I'd probably end up becoming a male Channeler/Hex Maniac (if such a trainer could exist) or a Punk Guy that throws in a few Ghosts. To be close to the Ghost Pokémon, I'd live in Lavender Town if I were in Kanto, Violet City if I were in Johto, or Konikoni City if I were in Alola. (Konikoni City is close to Memorial Hill.) I don't know the other regions well enough yet to say which city or town I'd prefer.

I'm not sure how much of a Pokémon adventure I'd undertake, or even whether I'd challenge the Elite Four. I might be a Pokémon Breeder (in the anime sense) instead.

Usertags

Below are the usertags that I've come across that both apply to me and that I liked. If you have suggestions for other ones, drop me a note on my talk page.

Games

Me, spading my way through every game, never beating the Elite Four. (Weedle is the symbol for the Bulbapedia:Spading Notice Template.)

I've played the following core series games:

Despite playing all of these games for extended periods of time, I've only beaten Pokémon Moon so far. I'm a major spade in Pokémon games. However, I do fully intend to play through each of the ones I still have access to until I beat them!

Through the years, I've also played a number of the spin-off Pokémon games, most notably Pokémon GO. I started playing on the first day it came out in 2016, and I've never really stopped. It helps that I've always lived/worked in places with good access to PokéStops.

I still haven't decided whether I'll want to play Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield, but I'm leaning towards Sword at this point.
