Gender: I just wanted to tell you this. If you go to a Bulbapedia article that isn't a stub, click on the first internal link in the article that isn't in italics or parentheses, and repeat the previous step, you will eventually find yourself at the Bulbapedia article about Canada. As for gender, I'm genderless.
Country: sumwair, where the game crashes whenever a Spewpa evolves. Time zone: UTC-13
Favorite Pokémon: I have one for each type. See below. Contrary to popular belief, I do not like Doublade. However, I do like steel types.

*I do have my own Youtube channel, but I post videos so infrequently that I usually prefer to direct people to my acquaintance anAwsomePerson's channel. If you really want to see me on Youtube, then it's aFarfetchedPerson.
About me: It's not that hard to type "sumwun", so just call me that. "Sumwun" is incorrect because proper nouns are not supposed to be capitalized, even at the beginning of a sentence, and "someone" is incorrect because I think spelling words incorrectly makes people look less sophisticated. If you insist on calling me by my real name, I don't have one.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Favorite Pokemon Quotes:

"I did my best, I have no regrets,"
--4 trainers on Route 24, Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow,  FireRed, LeafGreen Versions

"I now see that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are."
--Mewtwo, Mewtwo Strikes Back

"We do have a lot in common. The same Earth, the same air, the same sky. Maybe if we started looking at what's the same instead of always looking at what's different...well, who knows?"
--Meowth, Mewtwo Strikes Back

"It matters not that I catch nothing. The line remains in the water..."
--Fisherman Jonah, Route 127, Pokemon Emerald Version

"Sure, this is Victory Road. But it's not all that different from the path you've taken so far."
--Cooltrainer Halle, Pokemon Emerald Version

"If the strong and able do too much, they limit the contributions of others. The strong must show restraint. This enables everyone to live together and share responsibility."
--a veteran, Pokemon Platinum Version

"It's a lot harder to defeat one's self than anyone else."
--Riley, Pokemon Platinum Version

"The world awaited your birth. Not only yours, either. The Pokémon with you. The people close to you. All the Pokémon and people were born because they have a part in the world."
--Cynthia, Pokemon Platinum Version

"Neither Pokemon nor people live forever. But it is the very frailty of life that allows us to shine!"
--Veteran Edgar, Pokemon Platinum Version

"Of course, there are lots of outlaws in this world. They are caught and punished, but... But... Truly bad Pokemon don't really exist anywhere."
--Wigglytuff, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky

"There are other people and Pokemon who cherish this world, this time and space, and that's why they're all gathered here today. You have no right to take away the things that are precious to others for your own selfish reasons!"
--Diamond, Pokemon Adventures Diamond Pearl Platinum Vol. 9

"Both people and Pokemon make mistakes. But if we can pause to think for a moment, we might be able to fix things, or at least prevent them from getting any worse"
--Platinum, Pokemon Adventures Diamond Pearl Platinum Vol. 11

"It's more important to master the cards you're holding than to complain about the ones your opponents were dealt."
--Grimsley, Pokemon Black and White Versions

"I lost because I didn't eat enough pizza."
--Black Belt Jeffery, Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Versions

I was mentioned in False Swipe Gaming's Smeargle video!

Random Pokemon opinions:

According to Smogon, knowledge itself is never used. This needs to be remedied quickly.

The main reason why BW sold so many copies is because they're the first Pokemon core series versions not to have wild Zubat.

Life is about not always getting what you want. It couldn't be more true. All I wanted was life not to be fairy type.

If anybody says that Pokemon isn't educational, tell him/her that logs are used in calculating catch rates.

If two Pokemon don't like each other very much, they will still breed. Are you sure this is appropriate for kids?

The Pokemon tv show was first aired 4/1/1997. This is solid proof that the tv show was nothing but a joke.

Yet I'm cruel to Pokemon all the time. Go figure.

I'm curious if anyone thought of writing "genderless" in the gender entry before I did.

It is possible to comment on your own thread when it is closed, so the way I see it it’s fine either way. I have nothing else to say that PX hasn’t already told you.

Okay. Did you edit the pitch of your voice?

I mean....yes, thats kind of the point. I tend to leave questions that require clarification open or visible longer than others to give people more of a chance, but a few days is enough time to log in and check. People are always welcome to complain if they want their question reshown or just ask it again with the additional clarification - we're fine with this.

Be aware that while the auth do talk to each regularly we don't necessarily inquire about every single decision being made regarding hiding or closing questions. That means that if someone closes or hides something, we don't always know about it, ask or particularly care. If I don't know about a specific example you may or may not be referring to then I'll ask around and find who does, but auth will very rarely overturn one another's descions.

Check out this creepy troll: https://pokemondb.net/pokebase/user/Shri+Nithin - See it's recent activity. It's probably part of the DDos attackers.

Whoever created the tournament hosted it, or if they couldn't it was just a mod or an editor instead. Not really something that's feasible rn.

Something like ‘/ds ground weakness’ that would find all the Pokémon weak to ground moves.
