♥ the reason
When I was younger, I raised an Ampharos in Gold. Her name was Alexandria (so clever) and she was a solid part of my team all the way through.
The moment I saw Mareep in the game, I knew I had to raise one. I love sheep, since my parents used to raise them when I was growing up.
The whole evolutionary line became a favorite of mine; they're all cute but can also hold their own in battle. I thought the "electric sheep" concept was pretty cool.
I also loved Ampharos' name, of all things, which I think is one of the most clever English names. To this day, Ampharos has been one of my absolute favorite
Pokémon. I raised another one in HeartGold, and it was just as awesome the second time around :). While Ampharos might not be a stellar
battler, and it's not one of the most popular Pokémon, it'll always be dear to me.

Shine began as a fanlisting in early 2008. In 2010, I decided to expand it into something of a minishrine.
