About Me

  • About PlatinumDude
    A long time Pokemon fan and former Bulbagarden member.

    Take note: unless you ask for my permission, no one other than me can use my avatar. Sorry if I'm selfish, but I'm a bit paranoid that someone will steal it. If, however, you use it, give me credit!

    All credit to the avatar and signature goes to Shiay from Bulbagarden Forums.

    Even though I chose my current nickname, it annoys me if you call me by my full name. I prefer to be called PD, Plat or Platinum

    Whenever I make posts here, I keep them short and to the point. I don't like making them too long.

    Don't ask me for trades. I'm rarely in a spot where I can do so unless I say so otherwise.

    My laptop won't connect to my house's Wi-Fi, so I'm out of PO for a while. D:

    I tend to ask too many questions, so I apologize for that. If I do that, just let me know.

    Credit for my profile theme goes to my awesome big sister, Alexial357.

    I've been spending a lot of time in the Battle Center as of late. My preferred battle style is singles.

I'm finally back from Japan, and I had a blast!

For the first three days, we stayed at Tokyo. We went to the Tokyo Metropolitan Park, and the flowers there were absolutely beautiful.

For the last three days, we went to Yokohama. When we rode on the bullet train, my dad and one of my sisters got separated from us because I couldn't get the bags out fast enough. Other than that, the trip was fine; we spent it shopping for things we wanted. I, for one, went to the Yokohama...

I'll be going to Japan for the first time for a week. I never went there the first time my family went, so this will be a blast. I may not be able to get on here for a good chunk of those days, but I want to bring some good stuff back.

In case anyone's wondering why I didn't come on, it's because I went to an island resort to celebrate New Year's Eve/Day. Now that's out of the way, the worst thing that pretty much happened to my life happened: our flight back to the mainland got cancelled and I have to go back to Canada tomorrow. >_> This situation alone almost made me lose my mind because I couldn't even charge my DS there.

Anyway, I hope everyone out there had a good and safe New Year, and hopefully not...

Over the past couple of days, I've been chipping in at the GTS to up the count for the Fancy Vivillon and fill in some Pokedex pages.

Among my trades were:
-Drill Run/Knock Off/Megahorn Escavalier (traded a Shelmet for a Karrablast up for grabs; on a random note, I've been hoping to have it for ages)
-Encore/Memento Cottonee (planning on breeding that thing since it had the wrong nature)
-Turtwig (the only starter I needed anyways and I nearly forgot I had a...

As the title implies, should I get a 3DS XL or a 2DS? I can see the merits of each, but I just don't know which one to choose.
