    When I was on the old PS! server frost(wow that makes me feel old when I'm calling frost old), I was a part of the skull league, (a fellow skull league alumni is 1 True Lycan)which was basically a league based off of the megaman games it was actually a super cool format. Anyways the leader told me when I entered that I needed a trainer class and since I was the trainer who represented wood man I used grass types+sudowoodo, so ranger seemed like a pretty fitting trainer class. I would definitely say that if I had a chance to choose a different name, I would do it in a heartbeat, but alas the name Ranger Mike is a part of me now. Also there's the fact that if I recall correctly my name on PS! before Ranger Mike was TympoleFTW and I'd take Ranger Mike over that any day of the week LOL. But yeah I wish I could go back to those days on frost sometimes, the people in the skull league were so nice to me, they were my family.

    My first name Togie was derived from my favorite Pokemon, Togekiss. However, I realized how stupid it sounded later on. Combine that with the fact that I was growing an obsession with Kid Icarus, as well as the fact that my Showdown name color was an ugly brown, I ultimately changed it to Viridi. In her home game, Viridi is just a joy to watch on-screen, and her english voice actor does her lots of justice. I just wish she was more fleshed out.

    Since Viridi was unsurprisingly taken on PS, I decided to change it to Viridii since it was a nice magenta color.
