      Hi, Chou Toshio, I was wondering why Darkrai and Shaymin-S were not unbanned like last generation. I figured that you would be the best person to ask considering your excellent post in competitive discussions.

      Hi Chou, I was wondering if, since the Mega Kangaskhan test is over (and thankfully banned), could you release the results of your poll? I'm interested especially in the correlation of low ranking players and anti-ban.

      hi chou i was wondering if you could help me out a bit

      i'm trying to get some eggs hatched shiny, but some of the only trainer shiny value matches i was able to find are with japanese pokemon players and i was wondering if you could help me communicate with them so they could hatch my eggs (there's two people and it's via twitter). if you could do that i'd appreciate it but if not then that's ok too

      I read the pastebin in the signature and I agree with basically all of your opinions, though I would like you to explain a bit more (maybe in a PM or something) about Aegis/Talonflame as those were a little odd to me (and I think Deo-s/Gene are more broken then they are atm).

      Most of the Policy-Review posts currently assume that Parental Bond is similar to a Choice Band.

      However, it is closer to a Choice Band + Choice Specs. The Special Set running Seismic Toss + Shadow Ball is more than enough to dispatch any would-be checks or counters. It is honestly comparable to Choice Band, Choice Specs, The ability to switch attacks, a Focus Sash killer, and a superior Serenes Grace all in one.

      Please indicate the ranking of your current highest rated account

      Lower than 1500
      1500 - 1599
      1600 - 1699
      1700 - 1799
      1900 - 1999
      2000 - 2099
      2100 - 2299
      2300+

      Erm... My rank is 1860 right now. What do I do?? :-p I'm gonna say 1900-1999, because I hit that rank once and makes me feel better for myself...

      There's no option in the Kanga survey for 1800-1899, which is where I stand currently (over 100 wins and nearly 40 losses, because laddering means shit until the meta settles down/I have my precious UU).

      Seriously stop. If you want to make a post with content, that's fine. But "explain this shit to me" is not a post. Edit: the explanation is that the metagame is barely a month old and people are trying shit out.

      I don't know who made your avatar, but I absolutely love it. If you ever get tired of it, may I borrow it as an Infernape sprite in CAP ASB?

      Why are you using Sludge Bomb Lando-I when it gets Sludge Wave? It's not like the Poison chance matters *cough Sheer Force cough*

      Sorry to bother you with this, but are you a big DBZ fan by chance?

      Just want to say that its easy for a pokemon to be common when it is shiny, new, can use illegal sets, and is in a "metagame" that is not a metagame at all. Anyways, I don't want to criticize or anything since modding UT is probably hell, and cleaning up threads is a good thing, but yeah... when Talonflame falls to UU, don't say I didn't say so :p

        Even if there is a possibility of that in the future, I did make it very clear at the beginning of the thread that to keep it good subjects should be as conservative as possible. It is completely unreasonable for half the thread to be taken up by a talonflame debate considering its current performance.

      are you ethnically japanese & chinese? I thought I read that somewhere in the past but then you said you only started studying japanese in college and chinese recently (although that doesn't exclude that ethnic mix).

        Yeah I am you got it. I'm 4th gen on both sides-- my parents only speak English. :P
