Nateal is a 22-year-old Pokemon Trainer who started playing Pokemon long ago in the days of Red and Blue. She’s been in love with Pokemon ever since, having never missed a generation. Her favorite Pokemon include Mew, Raichu, and Typhlosion, and she loves every Pokemon type. She dabbles in Pokemon fanfiction, though it’s none of that slash garbage that clogs up the intertubes these days. (Darn kids and your internet.) She recently started attending her local IRL Pokemon League and is very excited to be battling other trainers who are admittedly much more experienced than she. Currently not an old-hat in the world of competitive Pokemon tournaments, she hopes to be going to the State tournaments with a few of the members of her local League this upcoming year.

His favorite Pokemon include Dragonair, Butterfree and Suicune, and his favorite type is the Dragon type. He has participated in a number of local tournaments and league activities, and looks forward to participating for the first time ever in State tournaments in 2012.
