      Apparently you get this a lot, but I read your entire gsc guide, long as fuck, but very nice. I enjoyed it and learned from it!

      gsc is far more interesting than modern pokemon in that is much more strategic. You've inspired me to try my hand at gen 2, so thanks if it means anything. It's a bit of a shame that the meta is dying out and probably coming to an end but I'm going to play it anyway. Cheers!

      Hey readed your GSC guides extensively and I part 6 is just so good and it deserves to be on-site.

      Mind if i put it in GP?
      1. Borat
        Go for it.

      I've been playing with your 2004 team that you posted in your guide and the 2010 updated one. I like the 2004 team better. I understand that the 2010 one is suppose to be better but why? what advantages does it have over the 2004 team?
      1. Borat
        more options and flexibility i suppose. what problems are you running into?

        i feel the opposite. but maybe I just need to play with each team more. idk. vaporeon seems to contribute more on the original team for whatever reason. and I miss gengar and tyranitar when I play the other team. but, like I said, it might just be me needing more experience with the newer team.

        not impressed. only the base set charizard is iconic. there's like 800 pokemon now

        I see. :[
        base set zard is pretty cool though. Still think shining zard is at the very least a cooler looking card.

      It's fine with you to translate your perfect GSC guide that you made a long time ago? I'm posting the Part 1 in a Spanish forum, and I just wanted to know if you don't mind about it (I'm giving you credits, obviously)
      1. Borat
        sure go for it.

      Yo Mr. Borat I read quite a bit of your 7 part guide. I had to ask, what do you think 2013 looks like for GSC OU? I've been using your old team of Raikou, Marowak, Skarmory, Snorlax, Suicune, and Miltank that you used in that 500 semiodd turn battle that ended with you struggling out pokegod in part 2 of your guide. I have been testing it and having great results, definately on up there for a team strategy and synergy(important). What I want to know is what you would do to change it now? I've noticed it's weak to Spikes (thats ok) if they lay them since we don't have a Spinner. And I've noticed Zapdos is a good Pokemon to use against us. Prolly one of the best Pokemon to play against this team or Machamp. Machamp is too fierce for some reason. Those Cross Chop..
      I really don't want to touch the team since it's your team and you would know more about on what to change to meta against Zapdos specifically, and even more specific MIRROR Raikou leads with the same moveset as the one we have. The Raikou mirror leads are sometimes a problem since they land the Roar sometimes, and sometimes I do. It's fun and all though and I usually win those matches.

      Zapdos and Lovely Kiss Snorlax, and pretty much any Snorlax is scarey.
