Helllllo and welcome!

I am Geran, also known as Gar1onriva. I started YouTubing on a whim over 6 years ago, making poor quality Minecraft videos. Since then, my channel’s expanded to have as many as 5 ongoing gaming series both single and multiplayer, playing Minecraft and whatever else I fancy.
In November 2013, I tried new waters for my channel by making a parody of CinemaSins, mock-critiquing the late nineties Pokémon anime, calling it PokéSins. Over the next year, my channel’s popularity greatly increased, elevating me from around 100 subscribers to over 5,000. A bit surer on my feet with the comedy I was presenting, I decided to completely reinvent the style so it was uniquely mine, keeping the name PokéSins.
This new style, while inspired by CinemaSins, uses a compound scoring system made of Plusles and Minun, denoting positive and negative points respectively. Despite some mixed reception to begin with, most viewers seem to like my new style and continue to support the series.
I started this Patreon to support that series during its times of copyright-crisis, but as my channel has gaming, general and PokéSins content, it's only right that my Patreon reflect that.

With multiple single player, multiplayer and one-off gaming videos, the Gar1onriva channel has something for everyone. Why not try something new today?

Why Patreon?

After I began to monetise PokéSins, I was fairly content with the ad revenue, especially after joining the Freedom! Network. This, however, began to change when I started receiving copyright flags on my PokéSins uploads, blocking their monetisation and stopping me from uploading another until the dispute was settled. Don’t worry though; my work comes under fair use, so I’m not breaking any laws.
This massive limitation on the series caused quite a stir among my viewers when I brought it to light and I was overwhelmed by the support they offered. Up until now I’ve resisted suggestions that I upload the episodes on other sites until the flags are cleared because I’ve come to rely on the income from the ad rev. That was when I began considering Patreon.
These days YouTube is my full time job and I rely heavily on Patreon money to supplement my ad rev and merchandise sales. With my patrons' support, I can continue to produce 5+ new videos every week.

What Do I Get?

Aside from putting a smile on my face and ensuring the good stuff keeps on coming, I have lined up a host of rewards and milestones to give you some actual incentive to pledge to me.
Whether you want your say on what videos I do, to see special episodes not released to the general public, to game or even chat with me on Skype, I think there’s something for everyone. See below for a full run-down of the rewards.
Milestones to which I aspire finding new, interesting things on which to do videos, upping PokéSins to a weekly series and earning enough from this Patreon to live on.
Milestones we've already reached are the making of merchandise, a special Behind-The-Scenes Featurette to be released FOR FREE along with each new episode, and new, top-quality audio and visual recording equipment.

Thank you for reading my page.
I hope you’ll pledge my work and help PokéSins & my channel evolve.


Note: Payments are immediately. You can then look back through my Patreon posts to find passwords, votes and any other rewards.
Tiers
Activity Feed
$1 or more per month
Pledging the minimum amount will grant you access to the Activity Feed where I'll give updates on the progress of PokéSins episodes and other selected or important videos.
Video Voting
$3 or more per month
Want to have your say? Pledging this amount will let you vote on a First Impressions and Top 5 video for the coming month. By voting in this poll, you can have your say on one of each, influencing my content in a very real way.

The previous reward is included.

All Main Series PokéSins
$5 or more per month

With PokéSins finding a home on the Gar1onriva website, alternating new episodes of the main series (Season 1 & 2) require a password to view. Pledging this amount will give you this password, so you can view every new episode of the main series as it's released on the website.
All previous rewards are included.

Unreleased PokéSins Episodes
$10 or more per month
Keen to see more PokéSins? Pledging this amount will allow you to view special episodes of PokéSins that I will make. These will be for a future season (Season 3) of Pokémon, but available to you much earlier than anyone else. These will be released at a rate of one every one or two months.
If you pledge after any of these episodes have been uploaded, you will be able to view all previous ones as well as any new ones uploaded while you're a patron.
All previous rewards included.
Monthly Newsletter
$15 or more per month
Want to know more about me? Pledging this amount will mean you get a monthly newsletter from me directly, talking about the things I've done/played/seen beyond the stuff shown on my channel. If you've ever wanted to know what anime and movies I watch, or how I get my kicks when I'm not ranting, this is how you can find out.
All previous rewards included.
Monthly Gaming
$25 or more per month only 15 left
Let's have some fun! Pledging this amount will give you the chance to play a video game with me for at least 60 minutes a month. The game will be agreed between us at the time and can include some kind of voice chat, but the focus is on the gaming here.

All previous rewards are included.

Note: This is, of course, limited to games we both own. PC games are most likely and the use of Steam is the easiest way. 

Monthly Skype Chat
$50 or more per month only 9 left
You really like me :D I'm flattered. Pledging this amount will earn you a Skype call for at least 60 minutes with me once a month, dependant on our availabilities. We can discuss almost anything you want like games, TV, YouTube, etc. I reserve the right to veto any topic...just 'cause.
All previous rewards are included.
Note: You will require a Skype account in order to chat with me.
