Ah that's nice. Would you prefer being called one or the other? It really doesn't matter to me, so it's all up to your personal preference.
Well, my name is Nicholas for one. So we're actually sort of close there. I can't say I've been playing pokemon anywhere near as long as you. I started when I was 8 I think? My first game was Sapphire. Good times. Also I live in Canada. So you're pretty far away.
