Tony Bresnen, Pokémon Collector Supreme

Tony Bresnen has been writing his whole life, but never thought he’d end up doing it professionally. An editor and writer working in the public sector, Tony is thrilled to write about his passion since childhood—Pokémon. He was hooked the moment he powered up his purple Game Boy Color and started Pokémon Blue in 1999, choosing Squirtle (the only logical choice). Over the years, he’s played just about every Pokémon video game released by Game Freak. He began collecting cards in 1999 but got away from it for about a decade. In 2012, he started collecting again and enjoys completing sets, displaying rare and valuable cards, and playing the card game casually with friends. Outside of his near-obsessive Pokémon hobby, he enjoys spending time with his wife Nicole and two young children. He hopes to pass along his love of all things Pokémon to both of them and keep them away from the influences of Team Rocket.  Other hobbies Tony enjoys include fish keeping (lots of aquariums at home), gardening, PC gaming and building computers, ping pong, and tennis.
