Ethan Garcia

Since Ethan was but a young lad, he's lived and breathe Pokémon to the point where, not only is it probably unhealthy, but he remembers each and every one, as well as facts about them. When he's not consumed in thinking about these fictional creatures, he's using his journalism degree from Syracuse University to report about news regarding general gaming and esports, doing his best to enlighten those not familiar with these areas about why they mean so much to so many people.
