About: TheZeroVirus

Alex B. (TheZeroVirus) joined Team Magma in April 2012 after struggling to find a home in the VGC community. While he's not a top-notch battler, he does write decent enough articles from time to time, and edits the Battle Videos for the Magma Weekly VGC Tournaments. When he's not playing Pokemon or hanging out on the IRC, Alex likes climbing terrain and mysteriously leaving donut boxes on the lawns of others, sometimes at the same time.
