Bio: I started playing in December of 2009 after hearing about PokΓ©mon tournaments from a friend. Before then, I casually collected cards and showed them off during recess. My initial 2.5 years in the Junior Division has led to me to Masters now, where I’m in the middle of my second year. I started writing for 6P Free in November, 2016, before fatefully winning Dallas and joining the UG team in February. Outside of PokΓ©mon, I’m a freshman at University of Illinois studying Systems Engineering.

This PokΓ©mon lived on prehistoric seashores and was able to preserve food with the ice on its body. It went extinct because it moved so slowly. (Arctozolt)
The shaking of its freezing upper half is what generates its electricity. It has a hard time walking around. (Arctozolt)
It anchors itself in the ground with its single leg, then basks in the sun. After absorbing enough sunlight, its petals spread as it blooms brilliantly. (Gossifleur)
