Ur ava is representative of ur activity y/n?
The change is cause gen 6 brought a huge influx of players due to the advertising being handled v. differently to previous gens from what I've been told (correct me of I'm wrong on this, as I didn't start playing 'mons until a little before BW2's release so I can only go on what I've heard). Also competitive was just made so much more accessible to new players in gen 6 due to the improved breeding mechanics, so that is also a pretty major contributor here.
That sounds about right. Whatever the reason, when 6th Gen started, you had new Smogon members trying to argue against everything from Evasion Clause to Level 100 battles. It was pretty annoying, to say the least.
I can kinda understand the lv 100 battles thing 'cause of the way that in-game works, but what I don't understand is why anyone in their right mind would want to get rid of evasion clause .-.
gibbs D: do you still exist?
your new avi is the most annoying thing since the flashing "party hard" avis lol
I just wonder how many people have sat there watching and waiting for something to load.
I once stared at it for 90 peaceful minutes
This shit is hypnotic
I've been banned from Serebii. Whooo~~~
Yeah I didn't really post here much until recently.
tbh it does suck since there's not much we could really do about it dying, but it makes more sense that people who want to seriously play competitive would come to the place actually devoted to it.
I wish it could be like back when I first joined Serebii. There were actually several legit players who contributed a lot, but everyone's pretty much gone now.
I think it was because Serebii moderation were being obnoxious for a while. Mass-banned a lot of good players because they didn't agree on the same opinions or something.
Ur alive :O
Good for the most part. Also busy/hellish at times 'cause of AS levels, but generally speaking its not bad.
What have you been spending the past few months doing?
Working, classes, the usual. I've been checking up on the forums occasionally, usually out of boredom, but I haven't played the game much in several months.
Makes sense. It can get hard to balance it with other stuff, and obvi irl comes before a children's game xD
Yeah, STag being gone is a definite plus. Might be worth getting back into it after all. That, or try to get back into DPP OU like I've wanted to do for a long while.
I heard DPP was good now
So have I. I just wish it were more active.
Probably. The OU community is in the worst shape I think I've ever seen it, and that's usually the one thing that keeps me coming back.
Well at least you got your CC greyed this time :P
Oh wow, just noticed that. That's actually really cool of them.
love the sig lol
Just wanted to say on behalf of us all, thanks for making the Check's Compendium :']
My pleasure! ^_^
hi! in your OU checks compendiums threat, gliscor is listed under both GSI and NSI for heatran. just a heads up. also, mega houndoom is under SSI for heatran, but heatran is under GSI for mega houndoom...
Yeah Bisharp seems weird lol, but Low Kick Sharp can check other Sharps, which rarely run Low Kick of their own. The Diancie thing is part of a glitch with a program I've been using (I'll explain soon in the thread), so I'll fix that right away.
i see. talonflame is repeated between gsi and ssi for mega altaria.
You want it?
After I made the above comment, I was told he wasn't quite finished with it, so feel free to keep in touch with him, otherwise I can.
Just saw you're already using it, but it's totes good enough to be used. If anything, you might get a further polished verison soon.
Yeah, I talked to him and he said that I could use the current version until he's done with the final one. Still looks awesome though!
I thought you quit a long time ago gibbs?_?
I did for a little while to focus on school, but I'm back for now.
Gr8 out checks compendium :-)
Why isn't your thread stickied yet ;_;
Hey,would you like me to make a banner for your checks compedium?
I'm not sure it'll be great but I can certainly try
Sure man, that would be awesome!
mfw I didn't know others actually use 3 attacks + slack off slowbro ;;
Oh yeah, it's been my favorite Mega Slowbro set since ORAS came out. If it wasn't already on the analysis, it would easily have my vote.
I. Am. Groot
I am Groot?

That's a depressing way to think of it
Yeah, but it's true.
Don't want to flood the thread with a one liner, but you should add Slowking under Latios checks. The AV set basically counters it.
Good point! I'll add it under Latias checks too while I'm at it.
As I was seeing your thread I thought "damn, this Metagame is so chaotic that the word "counter" has become obsolete :/" still imo it's a very useful tool for a builder, looking forward when you'll finish it x)
Should be done now! But yeah haha, this is just a rough list so I focused more on switch ins and revenge killers rather than strict checks and counters. Pretty similar concept, though.
Hey, loving your checks compendium, but perhaps it would be beneficial to include a definition of what exactly a check is in the OP? Otherwise the thing'll probably get flooded with a ton of things that don't qualify as checks.
Well, I sorta defined it in the thing about switch-ins vs non-switch-ins. I'll try to clarify more, but the forum doesn't seem to be letting me edit those posts lol.
"I'm so gonna start running Iron Tail Charizard X." I actually was thinking about this the other day and was meaning to build on this lol. Can't wait to hit an M-Altaria with this..
I was actually thinking about using something like that for Smogon Tour lol. Probably with something like SubCM Keldeo that really hates Mega Altaria.
rly hope my post in that one thread didnt bother u. i meant no offense by it.
Haha nah man, I get what you're saying, and I'll be the first to admit that I'm a mediocre player.
That was an incredible post. Seems you know the struggle of being knowledgeable at the game but bad at gameplay XD
Lol, more than you may realize.
I have that feeling, too. I enjoy theorymonning, but putting theories in practice is my weakness. It sucks, especially when you want to try all kinds of things.
why don't you have a custom title?
Too lazy to make one.
Actually, I'm gonna make that my custom title now.
