Approved by Draciel ~ About me: I'm Elize Lutus, maybe you know me under the name of Carl or Edna, depends when you joined PO and when you started talking with me. I'm 21 years old, I live in France and i'm currently studying Maths at university, although i'm going to orientate myself next year into economics-business because I feel like it suits me more than Maths currently. Outside PO, on which I play a lot, I play a lot of RPG ( mainly the Tales of series which are for me the best series alive), I also practice both Tennis and Guitar a lot,which are arguably what I like the most to do. Music: If you don't know me, music is the most important part of my life. I started playing guitar at the age of 6, and I've done 3 concerts ( one in Lebanon, one in Spain and one in Morocco). At that time, I used to play Classical Guitar until I got bored of the genre. Since, I started playing electric guitar, because my genre is heavily oriented into Hard Rock/Metal/Blues. When I tell to people I like Metal, they directly imagine that I like songs where the singer scream/growl but I barely like these, I prefer Melodic songs, which is why my favorite Metal bands are Iron Maiden, Saxon, Black Sabbath, Symphony X and Amorphis. I really love 70-80's Hard rock bands, because in my opinion they innovated too many stuff, the music sounds really cool ( outdated for many of you) and the technique on the guitar is sensational. This is mostly my favorite genre, and the bands I deeply love are: Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Alice Cooper. Blues is one of the best genre that exists alongside Jazz, because they're very deep and it's very hard to compose and put the right feelings into the vocals, guitar, drums and bass. I am very fan of Gary Moore, Stevie Ray Vaughan and B.B King ( rip) Pokemon: I started playing Pokémon when I was a kid, got gifted a Game Boy Color Yellow with Pokemon Yellow, which was so cute. I might have been around 7-8 yrs old so I had no idea of what I was doing so I released my Charizard thinking it will reappear later in the grass. My favorite game is Crystal because it featured for me a lot of cool Pokémons ( Raikou and Suicune mostly). I stopped Pokemon when between 13 and 15 or so because I had no interest at that time but then my cousin asked me to play Shoddy Battle on which I started playing competitive pokémon, without understanding anything of what I was doing. It was back in HGSS that I started learning by myself how to play, realizing on the ladder what was good and what was not, until I built a decent team. When Shoddy closed I had no idea how to continue because it was fun, even though I used to log in around twice a week, I still was trying to improve in the metagame. Then, I got told that Pokémon Online was a thing, and so I joined, around 2011, and got really addicted to it. I was first a shaky user, used to rage a lot on public, to the point I quit for around a year. Then, when I came back, I started playing Tournaments even more, and eventually got #1 in both leaderboards. I had a good activity, a good contribution to Tours, so after some time I got made MU to help the tours channel,where I derped twice not knowing how the commands work ( you can tourmute yourself, which is dumb ), and I also got Hangman Admin ( I swear one of the best channel ) and Trivia Admin. I also tried learning Mafia, because it's imo the best channel alive ( or not ) and because I love role games. I then got part of the League, Academy which I still do now, and I rate very often teams because the RMT section is awesome and help a lot of people to learn the tier, understand what people play etc. I am also currently the Side Metagame Tier Leader, alongside Sulcata and gengar17 who are cool people, and I try my best making these alive, better and more balanced. I recently worked with sulcata to make Monogen back, and also I made Middle Cup a thing again because I got a lot of demands for it, as it seems people like these which I appreciate because outside UU/LU I'm not into main tiers, as they are very static ( Ubers and OU are really boring for me ) and I stopped playing too much NU when the drops started being insane. If you want to play Side Tiers, feel free to message me on server I'll accept if not busy. I am also mod, which makes a lot of positions but i'm happy of contributing my best to PO, as it is the only sim to which I got addicted, and also the only one I like because the people here are very nice, some try keeping the forums alive, others the competitive aspect, and for some it's literally coding all day long for PO which is very nice. Shoutouts Spoiler @Strudels you're in my opinion the best PO user and I hope you'll get one day Owner because you definitely deserve it, you contribute way more than anyone could ever do and PO is lucky of having you @Draciel I like you a lot, you're doing a lot for PO, but you're getting a lot busy with life which gives you less time to manage everything, you know you have people you can trust who can help you if you don't have many time :) @JoyFrost I feel like you're getting more important every day that pass and I'm glad you're here when I need to talk to someone, you're someone trustful and we lack of these, I hope you'll stay like that forever :) @Atli I swear one day i'll beat you in CC Gym leader, I can't stay unlucky a lifetime :D @Zoroark The cutest user PO has, you're always up to listen to people, and that makes you very enjoyable to talk to *-* we're ghooooosts @Fate Testarossa you're cool but stop being salty about pokemon, we all know it's a shit game :D @sulcata I remember these days in BW2 where we used to ladder in Monotype, where every turn 1 was a mindgame between the genesects and Heatrans, you're arguably the best tour scripter and it's in big part with what you've done that we arrived at that system :] draconova is awful I agree. @Aurist @Celestial Phantom I'm glad you guys still invest in LU because there are clearly very little people who understand it's one of the coolest tier around. I hope you won't be discouraged when Sun and Moon will be there! @gengar17 it's crazy to know that we actually were pals at school, since PO we started getting a little bit closer, I think people finally realize that you're a very good player, you give a lot of thoughts into your teams, and you tend to smash me because you play like a noob vs me, which works :[ @Professor Oak It's pretty much me thanking you for keeping PO alive, it's sad that you quit for several months but now that you're back ( and Samph too!) you try improving everything and I appreciate your implication towards PO, I would have lost faith long ago with all the crap that happened but you didn't, so i'm happy of that @Fuzzysqurl thanks for coding nearly everything for PO, outside coyotte nobody does what you're doing, and you deserve by far your owners :) @Joeypals!! thanks for making the QOTD thread, it's pretty much one of the best thread we have currently, I hope it will never die, and if you don't post in it any day you'll find me very angry :] When people used to talk of you, you were described as a bad guy, but now I think you're very good, you entertain some people and you're implicated in PO, and I give you props for that for continuing doing so despite all the critics you got :) @TraceofLife I hope you stopped lagging, cause that's half of what you say on server xd @Nightfall Alicorn it's cool that you program a lot for PO, but I think you should be patient when you mod, outside that I think you're a nice dude and I hope the best for you All Tours/Safari peeps, I really suck at writing s/o so excuse me if you're not in this post, i'm just lazy to think about every single person, because I have a shit memory as well :( Feel free to ask me whatever you want!
