New in Pokemon forums, veteran in Pokemon games

Hey everybody. It's been a while since I posted anything in any online forum, and first time ever in a Pokemon-centric forum. Something about me: I'm a huge Pokemon fan and have played the games since the original GameBoy Blue and Red, so I'm kind of a veteran in the franchise. I've played pretty much all main games and all generations, the big exception being the fourth (Sinnoh), so I am really hoping for the Diamond and Pearl remakes on the Switch. They are gonna be awesome if they become a reality! After the original Sapphire and Ruby I kind of took a long break from Pokemon generally until Generation 6 with X and Y, and those games rekindled my passion. I've played Pokemon games non-stop since then.

I like mostly the main games, but I really enjoyed the XD Gale of Darkness spin-off on Game Cube, and the Pokemon Stadiums on N64. My favorite generation / region is Kalos, followed closely by Hoenn and Unova. Galar is a close fourth.

I don't have many friends who play Pokemon so I have little chances of expressing my love for it, so I decided to start here. I'd like to take the opportunity to share some of my favorite teams on the forums from time to time, since I recorded quite a few. One I'm about to finish a playthrough with is my "Halloween Team 1" in Ultra Sun:

- Houndoom, named Barghest (after the Celtic mythical dog)
- Noivern, named Torann
- Gengar, named Dioghaltas
- Palossand, named Ithedair
- Araquanid, named Mordamhan
- Metagross, named Uafasach
- I added a Honchkrow named Eucorach but it's not really part of the team per se, because of the repeating typings and because I used one already in SoulSilver, but it is a honorary member...

When I play with a new team, regardless of the game itself, I usually try to do a few things: I try to play with Pokemon I have never played with before o haven't played with for a while, try to have a balanced team in terms of types, and to have some theme for kickers (along with the names in different languages or themes too). If possible, I try to use Pokemon that match the region. And I try to have both genders equally. On top of that, if the complete team is colourful (not monochromatic so to speak), it is way better.

Hey Giri, I used to play Pokemon Go but my phone died and right now I only have a poor replacement with a non-existant battery life, plus right now I don't have a job so I can't afford a new one, but I'd like to play it again soon. As for the other one, I don't know it. What's it about?
