From Bulbanews, your community Pokémon newspaper.
Hello. My name is Bailey. I'm a writer for Bulbanews. If you have any basic questions, please run them by me. My superiors are extra busy all the time, and I can probably help you with whatever you need!
Well that's it for that. This is my bland userpage. Woo hoo.
A few introductory things
For a little more about me, check this page out.
I can be incredibly shy and introverted to those I don't know, so I apologize if I'm not going out of my way to talk to too many people. It's not that I don't like you, I promise. I just am not as outgoing as others.
I'm a college student planning to major in mathematics and economics. I stay fairly up to date with current events, and read economic research in my free time, so I'm always interested to chat about that if you're interested.
I'm lucky enough to have a very beautiful girlfriend (in real life, not on the internet) who I reintroduced to Pokémon when we began dating. Now she's trapped with the game just like me (:
I really don't tolerate drama. Over the internet, it's quite silly. We are all Pokémon fans, and if this website can bring us all together for that reason, it should be enough for us to get along, regardless of which generation or whatever you like.
Here is a list of the articles I have written for Bulbanews.
I am attempting to write 2-3 articles a week (depending on if there are that many newsworthy things left to report on), and enjoy writing about saucy topics that get a lot of comments in the forums. I take great pride when my articles are the ones most commented on the forums.
I've been playing Pokémon since it became international in 1998. My first Pokémon game was Red version, and the first Pokémon I ever picked was Charmander, which is why he is by far my favorite Pokémon (and before the h8ers get to me, I know, Charizard is overrated in competitive battling). I owned Red, Blue, and Yellow, and eventually compelted my Blue version Pokédex with all 151 Pokémon (including the event Mew released at the 1999 movies).
I loved Gen. II, and Gen III. was not bad, but Gen IV. was the one to challenge my relationship with Pokémon the most. I did not enjoy Pokémon Diamond very much at all, causing me to take a brief hiatus from Pokémon. However, when HGSS came out, I knew it was time to come back, and that's when I truly got introduced into the more "serious" world of Pokémon via Smogon, Bulbapedia, etc. That's when I really started becoming a Pokémon superfan beyond just playing the games.
I'm currently working on trying to complete the entire Pokédex. I'm most of the way through the Black and White Pokédex, and plan on replaying FireRed, SS, Ruby, and then Diamond (ugh) to try to capture the Pokémon from all across the Pokémon world. It's gonna take a heck of a lot of migration and transferring, but my goal is to complete the entire Pokédex by the end of 2011.
In terms of competitive Pokémon, I don't really do too much. I refuse to use gameshark, rng abuse, Pokésav, or anything of that sort (breeding was made difficult for a reason), so even when I put a lot of effort into my teams, I don't win much. I'm currently not accepting battle requests, unless you want to battle on a simulator like good ol' Shoddy Battle (...or even the more modern ones I suppose).
I would be happy to trade with anybody that needs anything or just wants to trade. However, I cannot help you if you are looking for a Arceus, Darkrai, Deoxys, Jirachi, or Shayamin. As previously stated, I only want/have legit Pokémon, which has resulted in me being super paranoid about trading for those event only Pokémon with any other player. I take great pride in trying to have a 100% legit completed Pokédex.
