Name: Dark Rider; Josh; Raichu; Night Rider
Era: Second Moonie War, aka Moon War II (1996-2000)
Like a few ASMers in this section, "Dark Rider" is a bit of a mystery to us. Existing in The Guardian's archives as a name on a folder containing nothing but a text file, we can reasonably conclude that he was a member of the NSE--but in what capacity, we cannot say, as all that remains of his ASM life exists as flame posts by angry Moonies recorded in said guestbook text file. Using a bit of forensic surfing, we've been able to determine a bit more about him as a person...if not as an ASMer. Here are some facts as we know them:
And that's all we know about Dark Rider, aka Josh, aka Raichu. What we have for the historical record, then, are the aforementioned guestbook posts (only those related to ASM--for the entire record, please see our dedicated Guestbook section in the Library) and a hybrid reconstruction of his Pokemon website. Thanks to Wayback Machine and The Guardian for these artifacts.
