Pokemon, baby!!!

Pokemon is easily my longest-standing interest, having been my special interest since literally 2009. It's also the interest that means the most to me, as this franchise has been deeply important to me for almost my entire remembered life. I didn't get any video game console until Christmas 2011 when I got a DS Lite, but I vividly remember seeing advertisements for HeartGold and SoulSilver on the TV in 2009 and wanting those games so badly. I got them in 2011, they were my first Pokemon games!

I'm not super into competitive battling, but I occasionally build teams on Showdown for fun. I have done a lot of shiny hunting, though!
