23, or 24 if you count my current run even though it's not Pokémon.

What's your favorite memory of the forums (either old or new forum)?

A timid Pokémon typically found in groups. The only thing that motivates her more than companionship is food.
When I got a bunch of birthday wishes on my birthday! It absolutely melted my heart. All of the people on here are so so awesome and that includes you, person reading this!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Neapolitan. It combines three of my favorite flavors (Chocolate, Strawbeery and Vanilla) in one. It's pretty nice.

What Video Game that's going to be coming out in the next couple of months that you're the most hyped for (if any)?

I didn't have an answer for that question at the time you asked it, but now there's going to be the New Pokémon Snap! AAAAHHH!!!

This Pokémon has too many ideas for their own good.
I got my hands on one of those guidebooks that had all the Pokémon (this one was old so it was the original 151) and became obsessed with it. I found out they were video games... some time later.

What was your favorite Nuzlocke you did?

Hmm...I think it's either my Emerald run because it was deathless and I documented it from my starter's POV, which was pretty fun, or my first randomlocke because I had a lot of fun writing all the characters (even though that didn't start until halfway through) and people seemed to really enjoy it.

What's your favorite video game from the 2000s?

The quick answer is Emerald bc first pokemon game. The answer from my head is prolly a somewhat obscure baseball game, MLB Power Pros, which was a twice-off port from Japan to the Wii and PS2 back in like 2007.

But the answer from my heart comes right at the beginning of the decade: Jet Set Radio. It's just so vivid in every aspect, from the smooth if imprecise gameplay to the loose plot to the sheer style that oozes from every pore of the game. The character designs are bomb-ass, the soundtrack is so good and funky it's straight-up the only video game soundtrack I actually listen to, and the visual style is both unforgettably vibrant (and one of the few games that old that holds up graphically) and super influential for its cel shading. If I could draw, the aesthetic and style I'd want to develop would literally just be Jet Set Radio.

What's one older video game (one-off or series) that you'd kill to see a reboot or remaster for?

MOTHER 1.

The game has aged very poorly. That much is clear. The mechanics are outdated, and the balance? What balance? Updating the mechanics to bring them in line with EarthBound or MOTHER 3, rebalancing the game, and doing a more polished translation (the official one is functional but lacks some of the polish of Tomato's) could make this game a great one. Ooh, and a remastered soundtrack could be right up there with the other two in quality.

The game is 30 years old and that fact is obvious upon playing. A remaster has the potential to give it the polish it needs to be a truly great game.

Is there a game you consider yourself to be an expert at? If so, which one?

The card game Set (hey, you didn't say video game). I have an eye for detail that really helps with spotting patterns, and my family has long ago reached the point where they don't want to play that with me anymore because I outclass them so much.

Star Wars or Star Trek?

A passionate bunch, Aureums are limited by their own minds. Who knows what happens when they break through their mental barriers?
I actually don’t really follow bands, or actually that many songs outside of nerdcore anymore... But Set it Off is pretty good, not gonna lie.

How would you explain your favourite movie in such a way that nobody would guess what it actually was while still telling the truth?

Two parties search for an object worn by a cat.

If you could transform at will but you could only choose one animal form, what would it be?

Liver. At first I was "meh" but slowly over time I gre to love it (I wish I could say the same with Spinach, but...)

And now, for something a tad bit morbid: The world is about to end, but there's just enough time to listenin to one last song before the world goes BOOM. What would that last song be?

I'd probably say either the 1980s just to see what they were like myself (I was born in '91, so that was right before my time), or the mid-2000s so I could go back and slap myself into making better choices.

Is there a video game you like from a genre you're not really a fan of?

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
Gonna be cliche and say that shooters are my least favorite genre (probably not even my least favorite, just the first genre that came to mind), but Star Wars Battlefront 1 and 2 (the old ones) were really fun to play, and I felt like a space Rambo gunning down a bunch of Stormtroopers. The second one has a lot of great mechanics and an excellent story mode, but I prefer the first one because I like the maps more. Yavin 4 Arena, Bespin Platforms, Rhen Var Citadel, Kashyyyk Docks, etc.

On the topic of Star Wars, favorite Star Wars character?
