Machamp The Champion

Hi there members! It seems that you'd like to know a little more about me. Well, allow me to fill you in.

I have been playing the Pokemon TCG since I was three years old when my two older siblings introduced me to the Pokemon franchise. After playing the game casually for several years, I finally went to a tournament in 2011, and I haven't looked back since. The Pokemon TCG has been a huge part of my life for several years, letting me meet so many nice people that are great friends of mine. I want to help this game out in any way I can so other people can share the wonderful experiences I've had over the past years.

On PokeBeach, I am the head of the article program. Working with all the wonderful people on this website has been one of the defining parts of my life for so long. As I said earlier, I love helping people out and expanding the TCG, so this has been a great opportunity to provide people around the world with high quality TCG advice, discussions, and a friendly environment where us TCG fanatics can come together to produce something great. So many people have been helping alongside me and many of these people are some of my best friends. I don't know what my life would be like without PokeBeach and all the wonderful people on it.

Outside of Pokemon and PokeBeach, I'm Unschooled, with some of my other interests including theater, Super Smash Bros, and gaming in general.
