After falling just short of a Worlds invite a year later, he decided to focus more on growing the scene than simply playing. He has been a journalist for more than six years and has contributed to numerous outlets in that time. His favorite Pokémon is Gliscor, and the fact that it’s terrible in VGC makes him sad every time he thinks about it.
