In spite of being one of the franchises closest to my heart, I haven't been playing Pokémon as long as some other people have. I was actually fourteen when I first got my hands on both a 3DS and my first Pokémon game, Pokémon Moon, in 2016. The hype surrounding the game and pne of my friends interested me in playing it and I immediately fell in love with the game and the series as a whole and have kept up on the releases since then, never forgetting to complete the entire Pokédex. I regularly find myself shiny-hunting, reading about and watching videos about the series, and interacting with fan-made content online. Not to mention my growing collection of Pokémon plushies, accessories, and figures. This shrine is a special place to show off my shinies, collectables, and beloved team members.
