Gender: A girl who is very popular among carpenters, fishermen, doctors, cooks, and the sons of mayors.
Country: Harmonica Town, Castanet. Oh wait, I don't live in Harmonica Town, I live near Harmonica Town. Sunny Farm. Wait, that was my first file. Lunar Farm. There we go. Oh, and sometimes I'm on Waffle Island, near Waffle Town in Sunny Ranch...
Favorite Pokémon: Silvally's my number one favorite. I have way too many. I also like Mew, Pikachu, Eevee, Riolu, Vulpix, Pyukumuku, Sylveon, Sneasel, Mawile, Snivy and Braixen, as well as Glitch Pokemon like MissingNo.
Friend Codes: ~Farewell, Junior~
It feels like so recently that you had just learned to walk and talk, but also ages ago at the same time. I suppose it depends on how soon in the day I went to sleep. But now you're off on your own in a distant land, and though I know we'll meet again, it's only one last time. I know you wanted to do this, to help the land you were heading toward, but I'll still miss you, and I'm proud of you. I wish you the best of luck.

~Goodbye, June~
While you didn't go on an adventure like your brother, that doesn't mean I won't miss you. I hope that you, too, will soon find a mission you strive to accomplish. Though we won't meet again, I'll hold you and your brother in my heart.
About me: 3/10/2021 - The day I encountered four Shinies.

I'm Giru-Rūku. Harvest Moon is cool. Anyways, I guess call me Giru, Rūku, or Giru-Rūku. No need to type the fancy U every time.

Not really much to say. Final Fantasy 6 is epic and I play it a lot nowadays.

Uwao! Waou!!!

~Shiny fails: every act of sheer klutziness tells a story~

Psyduck (Female, level 17) - 3/10/2021

So, I was Shiny hunting Psyduck in Moon. After a long while, I finally encountered a Shiny. Of course, the darn thing was stubborn and kept calling for help. After a few calls, the most startling thing happened, and I burst out yelling when I saw it. The Psyduck had called another Shiny Psyduck. Now, this was pretty incredible luck. Sure, I had a Shiny Charm and it was a rather long SOS chain, but still. I hadn't expected anything like that to happen... well, ever, I guess. The sad thing about SOS chains is that you can only use Poke Balls when there's one Pokemon on the field. You know what that means: I had to defeat one of the Shinies. Now, it's one thing to soft-reset over a Shiny or run out of Poke Balls. Those are just stupid mistakes or not being prepared. But it's another to have to knock out said Shiny so you can catch a different one. It really sucks. In the end, I decided on the male Psyduck. It was the first Shiny Psyduck, and I wanted a male one more. So I one-shot the female one with my Shiny Shelgon's Dragon Claw, and, after a bit of calling for help, caught the male Shiny.

Name changes: Flowersun --> Glazio Kawaii --> Gladion Aether --> Giru-Rūku

Some of you may be wondering what I like about Gladion. Well, I'll tell you everything I like about him. Brace yourself.

First of all are his eyes. They're such a lovely shade of green, especially in the anime. And not only that, but they have a rather rare shape among Pokemon characters. Usually they're oval-shaped, but Gladion's are more narrow and sharp, almost as if he's glaring at you.

Then there's his hair. Blond is definitely a hair color I like. It's rather funny to me how it falls down over one of his eyes and partially sticks up. It seems kinda wild, and as a person with wild hair, I can relate.

I also like his outfit. Black is a nice contrast color to the fact that the rest of his family wears white, and it pairs well with red. I like the fact that he wears a hoodie over a shirt. I can definitely relate to that.

His personality is also appealing to me. He seems rather quiet and calm, but he does have a temper. You can see he's angry just by looking at his face. He cares about his family, you can tell. In fact, in USUM, he's training to get stronger so he can protect them. He seems noble in a way. He doesn't seem like a fan of messing around, definitely far from jolly. He's serious, rather contrasting my personality, which is one reason I'm so drawn to him.

Most of his Pokemon are pretty awesome too. Silvally is an interesting Pokemon with a cool backstory. Zoroark fits him quite well with its color scheme. Lucario is a pretty cool Pokemon as well. Crobat is cool, though I'm not a huge fan. Weavile looks a lot like him to me, and Sneasel even more. Porygon-Z is a fascinating Pokemon to me. I also love Porygon. Both Midday and Midnight Lycanroc are pretty awesome Pokemon. And then there's Umbreon, one of my favorite Eeveelutions and a Pokemon I like in general. He also gets the Kanto starters, which I find meh, but it's still kinda cool that he got them while in Kanto.

Also, I love his voice, which I've heard in the anime. It fits him perfectly, in my opinion, and there's something about the usually calm, quiet tone that I just adore.

There's also his backstory and all that, but I'm being lazy and this took a while to write. So yeah. There's my reasons.

See ya.
