      hey, we're matched up for RU Open. I'm GMT -4. I'm busy on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday, but free the rest of the week. Let me know when's a good time for you.

      I didn't want to post in the IS thread cause it really is a side point but... do you think TPCi would suggest to anyone BUT Ray Rizzo or any of the other superstar players that they rebreed, or would they DQ the average Joe? I imagine the second. They're not going to DQ their precious three-time champs or other well known players.

        I didn't participate in Worlds (just spectated), but I did do the Philly VGC Regionals last year. I don't remember the registration line being particularly bad--they just loaded your team, spent maybe 10 seconds looking it over, and then said "move along"

        Regionals go rather quickly due to being half the size of even nats competitions. You're right in that they barely spend any time checking the team but IF they call you out then or during one of the random mid-competition hack checks and you pull the "but ray rizzo...!", that's wasted time debating with the judges.

        Well we'll see what happens at next year's regionals (presumably no one wanted to fuck around with Worlds).

        For whenever you see this: a thought occurs--wouldn't Zapdos be a better choice than Rotom-H given that this is for Doubles not VGC? Higher SpA, has access to Heat Wave and Tailwind...
        Aug 20, 2014
      3. Pwnemon
        Pwnemon
        honestly i never thought about zap at all, im just so used to using rotom-h. zap could definitely work—can't switch in on mawile or heatran as easily as rotom-h but tailwind is nice. then again, thunder wave is also nice. it's probably something we'd have to iron out through testing both and checking.

      Any (preferably not too intense) hiking/ cycling trails to recommend around dc? :)

        or might you know if the southern rock creek trail really gets that much traffic during weekday late mornings or so? I'm thinking to go tomorrow morning :) (and if possible/ not too inconvenient, reply me via text 860 278 6536? just bc idk how much I'll be checking smogon)

        I don't do txt, so I hope you see this: Rock Creek Park is great, shouldn't be *too* crowded during a weekday, C&O canal is better for biking if you have a hybrid or a mountain bike. If you feel like venturing further afield, Mt. Vernon Trail is a paved but hilly bike/jogging trail stretching from Rosslyn to Mt. Vernon past the airport.

        COIL does tie in a lot of complicated math and theoretical stuff, but I hope at least that the tl;dr made sense.

      Dr. Antar, I'm curious to know why the highest threshold (i.e. 1825 for OU and 1760 for others) is not the one used to determine tiers. IMO that is a representation of the most knowledgeable players, thus using that baseline would raise no eyebrows about pokes rising/falling.

      Hi Antar! For some reason I can't edit my posts or respond to VMs on my computer (I can on my phone but that's annoying). I tried turning my computer off and back on again but it didn't work. Any idea what might be causing this?

      Thank you!

      hey, can you meet me on showdown in the other metas room rn exactly or tommorow to talk about a possible AAA suspect ladder? it's not going to be smogon official but as the manager of AAA I wanted to see if I could have a mini psuedo-suspect

        I have no idea what AAA is, nor would I have anything to do with setting up a suspect test for it.

        I understand though, no OM should get anything close to a psuedo-suspect ladder is the general opinion so I'll take my dumb requests and leave

      For some reason, I can't type on forums. I wanted to tell you that Gen 3 has a glitch. I can't pass down the effect of mean look with baton pass. This is a serious glitch that makes baton pass hardly useable. Edit: The ability pressure doesn't seem to work in any generation.

      Hey, someone's offering me your Antarceus, we were wondering if they're free when others trade them to another person.
      I know your thread's inactive so I decided to just trade him for one :P

        Bulbapedia says Multitype prevents the user from using Trick (certainly can't do it if it has a plate), but Showdown's letting me, so idk.

        Also, Smogon has Trick as a move on CB Arceus' moveset, so I guess you're right!
