    About Me 
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is my first ever FAQ written for this site so I would accept any 
    constructive criticism (I know my English sucks.) I decided to do a FAQ for 
    this site because this site has helped me a lot and I want to contribute 
    something back, even though it・s limited.

    Introduction
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The poketch, which is pokemon watch for short, is basically a miniaturized 
    computer (because of its ability to install multiple applications.) 
    You use it by wearing it on your wrist like a watch (kinda obvious.) 
    You can, as mentioned before, add functions to the poketch by loading 
    applications called Poketch Apps. Starting with the Poketch Company in J
    ublife City, you can get Apps from all sorts of people, and keep enhancing 
    the usefulness of poketch. The boy・s model is blue, black and red, while the 
    girl・s model is red and black.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    I would like to give a huge thank you to Nintendo for this game, its awesome.
    
    I would also like to thank my friend from school who chip in money for me 
    to buy this game (I am poor.)
    
    And me for writing this guide, what I am about to type is a pretty long 
    statement that will get you really bored. This section was only put in to
    make my own credit look longer than average, hence making myself feel that
    I am important. Jk Jk
