Haha, is that a genuine headline? (And yes, I have actually been to San Francisco, a long time ago. Unfortunately, it was mandatory around that time in my school's science class to watch this video about how San Francisco was overdue for a massive earthquake, so I kind of had that hanging over me for most of my visit.)
Apologies also for taking so long to respond, the end of 2014 was a very demanding time for me, and I haven't found much time for Bulbagarden. I hope all is going well for you.
