After having given it some thought, I decided I should stop being lazy and give myself a user page. This is the current result of this momentous decision.
I was first introduced to Pokémon shortly after red and blue came out. I played the games religiously and was overjoyed when gold and silver debuted. After a while though, I fell into the stigma of popular opinion, and began to dislike the games because that was "cool". Sadly, I missed Gen III because of this. Years later, I had stopped caring what other people thought of me but hadn't gotten back into Pokémon. However, as diamond and pearl were about to come out, some of my friends started playing ruby and sapphire again to get in the mood. I was drawn into the games again and started playing my silver again, beating it and raising my Wigglytuff to level 100. My God, I loved that thing. I beat the elite four and Ash with it using only pound (except for the ghost types. bastards). I began playing Pearl when it came out, and shortly after, discovered Bulbapedia.
Bulbapedia can take the credit (or blame) for my current obsession with Pokémon. With so much information at my fingertips, I wanted to know all there was. I ravenously devoured movesets, stats, and formulas, but longed for still more. Some other sites had information I wanted, but their navigation was nowhere near as good as a wiki's, and I soon decided that Bulbapedia needed to be complete. I joined in order to fill out the egg moves of neglected Pokémon and even the movesets of certain ignored Gen III creatures. However, now I want it to be complete in every way; not just in terms of handheld gameplay.
