My real name is Thiago Dantas.
I'm a fan of both the games and the anime. I started playing before everything come out in Brazil, because my great aunt gave me a french Game Boy Color and a french Pokémon Yellow. Today, I'm 14 years old, and probably I started liking Pokémon at the age of at about 5 years old. When I was at about 6, I was waiting for a doctor to see me at her office and there was pokémon in the TV, that was the first time I watched it. The first episode I saw was Ash Catches a Pokémon!.
I joined Bulbapedia on April2006. Since then, I tried to add info about Pokémon on Brazil, but soon I left. I returned to Bulbapedia on August 28, 2007. Soon, I got a friend from Brazil, who is also a Bulbapedia user, Haruka uzumaki. We started to send emails to each other to later chat on MSN Messenger. Later, I started to do missions and joined the User Entertainment project, which unfortunately doesn't exist anymore.
After a long period of absence, I have come back to edit Bulbapedia.
In the Games
When I start a game, I use the name Thiago or シュウスケ Shūsuke when playing Japanese. I played pokémon in every Generation, but I generally choose the one with the colors I like better (for example, I played Pokémon Sapphire, not Pokémon Ruby).
I have played the TCG since 2005. My first deck was a simple Gardevoir + Swampert deck. Today, I have one Empoleon and Dodrio bench attack deck, which is way outdated.
In the Brazilian Fandom
I used to be a member of the staff of the Brazilian site PokéPlus. There, I used to a member of their scansub, PSBR (stands for Pokémon Special BRasil). Unfortunately, its fansub division ceased its activities.
I've been fansubbing Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl since 2006; I am the translator. I was first into Kawarimi, it closed in half-2007. Then, they called me into PokéDishin, and closed half-2008. Our staff members gathered and went to PokéPlus' scanlator PSBR start a new project. Unfortunately, it now only has scanlation projects.
My favorite pokémon is Marshtomp. But, I also like those Pokémon:
