Hi, I just joined after, um, 2 years of lurking in the shadows.
I originally got into pokemon as a child, like most did, through the card game then the TV show. Grew older, grew out of it until my roommate introduced me to the video games (which I had no idea about) and I've been hooked ever since.
Out of all of them, Platinum is my favourite. And with that, my favourite pokemon are subsequently Garchomp and Lucario since they help so much to obliterate the Elite Four.
I'm really casual at the games though. I use serebii a lot for information such as breeding, TM moves, what is pokerus/feebas, etc. but I've never had an online battle or really understand EVs & such. Which is why I'm here! Hopefully... Anyways, thank you!
