TRAINER LEVEL: 40
FAVORITE POKÉMON: LUGIA
CLAIM TO FAME: AR and PvP
THE INTERVIEW - THE WING ATTACK
G2G: First, can you tell me your in-game Trainer name, level, and your favorite Pokémon? Is there a reason it is your favorite? Also, what do you do in your daily life?
Silver Wing: Hello everyone! My name is Bryan, aka Silver Wing. Before that I was called ‘LUGIAxMASTER21’. I’m a Level-40 Trainer since the summer of 2018.
My favorite Pokémon is Lugia. The first time I saw it in “Pokémon: The Movie 2000: The Power of One”, I immediately fell in love with it. Not only with Lugia, but also with how awesome and beautiful that movie is! So that’s why Lugia is my favorite Pokémon.
In my daily life I’m a bus driver and a PvP player (Trainer Battles) in PoGO!
G2G: What got you into Pokémon/Pokémon GO? Were you into Pokémon before GO was released? What do you like the most about Pokémon in general? Do you have a favorite feature in PoGO?
Silver Wing: I got into Pokémon when I was like 4-6 years old. I still remember the Pokémon intro song from the anime playing when I came home from school. Later for my 8th birthday, I got my very first GameBoy Color (Yellow) and Pokémon Silver, with Lugia as the mascot of course!
What I like about Pokémon is the journey to become the very best like no one ever was, to be a champion and complete the Pokédex! My favorite features in PoGO are PvP and AR, because I want to be a PvP Master and a good AR Photographer to entertain my fans!
G2G: What made you start creating/sharing Pokémon GO AR photographs? Was it just something you wanted to do, or is there more to it?
Silver Wing: I started with AR Photography when I saw ShinyMajinrobin and Ash Ketzchup on Instagram posting their photos. I wanted to try it out myself and share it on my own Instagram.
In the beginning I was only a noob, but with the help of the AR Family (like PeloPoGO, Ash Ketzchup, Risaharada97, and many more), I found my own style. Recently, I also started to share my PvP content and Team GO Rocket battles!
G2G: I can call myself a proud owner of a post card with an AR pic you shot! Is this something you do more, or are there any plans to sell those post cards? To widen it up: what are your ambitions with your AR photography and AR in general?
Silver Wing: I will probably never sell my post cards, because I consider them little gifts that I want to share with everyone who loves Pokémon. My ambition is to let people know that AR Photography is not just taking photos, but a true art that deserves to be known! There are so many styles of AR Photography like #Bokehmon, #Minimon, #Blackimon, #ARbreakout, …
G2G: Is there anything else you want to share?
Silver Wing: Yes absolutely! If you are into AR Photography or PvP but you don’t how to begin, you can always ask me or the AR Family for help on Instagram! In the future (maybe mid 2020), I will have a YouTube channel with content for both those features!
Last, but certainly not least: don’t forget to play PoGO with your friends and family. It’s a beautiful game that brings people closer together!
Smell you later! Silver Wing
SILVER WING, GOLDEN HEART
There’s no doubt: Bryan has his heart in the right place, just like his talent for creating AR photographs. Whether it be his raw AR shots, or his AMAZING edits, you will be blown away by his incredible work!
You can feel how driven he is, which makes him a great example for everyone that has dreams and goals they want to achieve. We want to thank Bryan for his time, and be sure to give him a follow on Instagram!
