That's not my point. If you just love roleplaying games, pokemon is a mess of a system, and this tabletop game even moreso. The only reasons to want to play this system are a love of pokemon, or wanting to participate in a game with friends. I'm pretty sure MadHatter doesn't already know anyone here, and even the people he "friended" here was just done on a facebook-age urge to do so for everyone.
My point is that I'm having a hard time comprehending his enthusiasm given his nigh complete ignorance of the pokemon world, he doesn't even appear to have the fanatical but limited knowledge loving pokemon as a child would have afforded him. His character essentially IS Ash, which does sort of match up to a neophyte to pokemon, but the sheer enthusiasm MadHatter puts out baffles me.
Edit: No offense intended, I'm just a little confused. It isn't even that big a deal.
