It's me Graven, the Curious Ampharos homing in on some of the local gossip on PokeBeach! I see you all grow quite the coffee here-Komala Coffee, was it? It's quite delicious! :D

Nah, but in all seriousness, the name's Ethan, an aspiring Pokemon TCG competitor and VG casual. I've just recently got into the competitive side of Pokemon TCG, initially setting my goals to only become a collector. But as of late, I've taken a keen interest in the metagame, especially when Sun and Moon came out. Now, I am making decks that not only fit my style of play, but to also see where I stand in the competition and what I would need to improve upon. Needless to say, I have a looooong way to go before I can consider myself a proper opponent to any Pokemon TCG player.

Now, oddly enough, Generation 5 was the first time I ever got into Pokemon on such a deep level-even if my first game was Pokemon Yellow for the GBC. While I am especially glad that White 2 was my true first game completed, as it is fantastic and can stand up quite well to even it's predecessors/successors (not to mention introducing my favourite Grass Starter evolution line to date), not ever experiencing what it was like to first play any Gen 2-5 games does leave an empty void that begs to be filled. Nonetheless, I dearly expect those games to be just as satisfying as I first played White 2 once I get around to buying them.

On that note, I sincerely wish all of you the best of times. Now, where's that coffee I smell-it's quite intense! Ohhh, I hope there's quite a conversation bubbling up wherever that smell is! :30
