First got into Pokémon around 2010, with SoulSilver being my first game. I only played casually, which grew boring after getting and completing White.
A few years later, I got back into it competitively through Showdown, and have enjoyed it ever since (Haven't kept up with the main games, though :\ ).
Favorite Pokémon by type:
STEEL: Beldum; favorite Pokémon, favorite type
ELECTRIC: Luxray (2nd favorite overall)
PSYCHIC: technically Beldum, but I’ve got to give this one to Lugia (3rd favorite)
GRASS: Bayleef (4th fav)
NORMAL: Eevee (5th) (after this, I’m not so sure overall; the rest of these are in no particular order)
FIRE: Alolan Marowak
FLYING: technically Lugia, but I’ll give this one to Yveltal
GROUND: technically Flygon, but I’ll give this one to Krookodile
ROCK: Midnight Lycanroc
My Shinies, in order of me finding them:
* Gyarados in SoulSilver - doesn't count
- Pidgey in SoulSilver - met a tragic end at the hands of an unlucky crit. My first shiny fail
* Gyarados in HeartGold - once again, doesn't count
* Vanillite in White - Grew up to become a Vanilluxe as a part of my in-game team
> Mewtwo in HeartGold - My first successful shinyhunt
* Unown (L) in HeartGold - Hilariously enough, I think I remember encountering this one with my Shiny Mewtwo
* Heatmor in White - Caught and left mostly untouched
* Zubat in LeafGreen - Migrated to SoulSilver several days after capture. Now a Crobat
* Sandshrew in SoulSilver - A lucky catch at the mercy of the Safari Zone. Now a Sandslash
* Rattata in SoulSilver - now a Raticate
* Tangela in SoulSilver - Caught and left completely untouched
- Mr. Mime in SoulSilver - Once again at the mercy of the Safari Zone. Not so lucky this time; second shiny fail

Did you know that the last 258 pages of the database's users page is nothing but 20 point users?
PS. The 890 in my username is pronounced "eight ninety." Not "eight nine zero," not "eight hundred ninety," not "eighty-nine zero." It's just "eight ninety." IT'S. NOT. THAT. HARD.
