I launched PokéCenter — an online Pokémon community with a website and a forum.

We discussed topics on the forum, browsed the website to read news, guides, and go to the Pokédex. It's was at the time of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, so we also organized online exchanges and battles on the GTS (Global Trade System). We offered shinies to winners!

I was the webmaster and founded a team of moderators to manage the community of 400 members, and redactors to write the content.

PokéCenter introduced me to programming and designing, at age 11.
