Since you've decided to take the time to look at my profile, I might as well make it worthwhile.
My entry to the franchise was with Diamond and Pearl. I got both versions the Christmas right after they came out. I played Pearl religiously, proudly proclaiming to people that I once played the game for nine hours straight because, to eight-year-old me, that was quite the feat. Ironically, I was unable to beat the game despite my devotion until almost ten years later after much grinding because my entire team, barring my starter ocean the Empoleon, was under-leveled. Now I'm an insanely obsessive fan whose played a game in every generation except for the third gen, as well as all of the Mystery Dungeon spin-offs except the Japan-exclusive ones. My favorite game is Black/White and my favorite region regarding Pokémon designs is Alola. I love to breed for shiny Pokémon, and I have over a box full of shiny Pokémon I've bred. My dream team is Turtonator, Flygon, Hydreigon, Garchomp, Haxorus, and Noivern.
