Well I have come a long way from when I first came here. I first started out creating various character of the day articles that were needed at the time. It still remains one of my top contributions. Most of my edits are dedicated to the Pokémon anime which is also the project I'm in charge of.
I also do a lot of work on the Bulbapedia Archives uploading many anime pictures as well as Pokémon sprites. I uploaded most of the FireRed and LeafGreen sprites myself. I'm also a frequent editor of Shipping pages, mainly anime ships of course.
Eventually I made it up to admin status when TTEchidna needed assistance in stopping a vandal in 2008. I didn't think the powers would be permanent but they were. I recently was given Check user status by MAGNEDETH for helping with the Grawp incident.
I also am the creator and unofficial leader Bulbapedia Project known as Project VA.
When I play the games, I usually name myself Sammy because Sam sounds too much like a guy (though I'll use it when I choose to be the male character) and Samantha will not fit by one letter. *shakes fist*. I usually specialize in Water, Ice, Grass and my favorite Ghost Pokémon. I also get Fire types fairly often mostly because they're a necessity. I also have a tendency to nickname all my Pokémon, but only if they're going to be on my team. I don't name every single one of them.
I'm also an avid fan of the Pokémon anime. As I said before, I saw the anime first before I played the games. Most of my contributions to Bulbapedia are anime related. My favorite arcs are the Indigo League, Orange League, Pokémon Chronicles, Sinnoh (before it got long and drawn-out), and the Unova arc.
Tracey/Kenji - I think this was probably obvious to you by my user name. He is my all time favorite character. I love his sweet personality and he draws just like I do. I'm very disappointed that the writers didn't give him a bigger part in the anime. I wished that they would give him a new Pokémon or something. Make him come back once in a while. I was even more pissed off when I heard of Masamitsu Hidaka's claim about why Tracey was created. Now I'm afraid that the writers are trying to do him what they did the the GS Ball: forget about him. I should start a petition or something. I'm not trying to get Tracey to be part of the main cast. I just would like to see him more often.
Cilan/Dent - Though I was skeptical when I was initially saw him, he has won my heart over with his charm. So much so that he is now my second favorite character. I love this guy. Cilan's personality reminds me of Tracey's. He's a nice breath of fresh air to the repetitiveness that was Brock. All I have t say is "Thanks for making him part of the main cast!" :)
Ash/Satoshi - My third favorite character. I like his charisma and positive outlook on life. He may be a little thick headed at times but the anime just wouldn't be right without him.
Misty/Kasumi - Definitely my favorite female character. I fell that I can relate to her because I'm also a tomboyish redhead. I especially like how she matured after the original series ended. I find her to be a very strong trainer that could probably put Dawn and May to shame.
Brock/Takeshi - Come on. Who doesn't love Brock? He's funny and a very kind person. When he first left the show I got really upset and I was overjoyed when he came back. Even though Tracey left the cast after that happened. He does go overboard when it comes to girls but hey, that what makes Brock well... Brock.
Dawn/Hikari - She's just plain cool. Unlike the other females she seems like she's ready to more. I mean she battled a member of the Elite Four already. Even Ash didn't battle one until season 2. Though she doesn't rank higher than Misty in my book she definitely ranks higher than May.
Paul/Shinji - Yes he's rude and crude and abuses his Pokémon but I can't help but love him. Why... well.... I can't really explain it.
Reggie/Reiji - Ah... Paul's wonderful elder brother. So sweet... Best supporting character EVER. And I was right on the money when I predicted his dub name. His presence almost makes up for Tracey not being there.
Stephan/Kenyan - 'Stephen', 'Steven', however you say it. I love this guy and he's the most interesting of Ash's Unova rivals. And he has a Dageki <33333 Would be better to have more of him instead of Trip. Don't worry big guy, there has to be someone out there who will get your name right.
I have quite a few favorite shippings. I do like same sex shippings as well as straight shippings. I'm not a big fan of incest couples though. My favorite straight ship is Orange, my favorite shōnen ai ship is Coma, and my favorite shōjo ai ship is Appeal. I used to be a big time PokéShipper, but not so much anymore.
