      I've been wondering, which Mega Evolution has been the most fun to use and/or improvise with on the ORAS ladder? I haven't really played that much myself, but I do watch a lot of matches and follow the threads. From what I can assume, Mega Metagross and Mega Gallade will be a shitton of fun to use just for their ability to single-handedly wreck whole teams on their own. What do you think?

        I haven't really had a chance to do much on the ORAS ladder, but Mega Lopunny and Sceptile look the most fun to me. I watched one of aim's videos and Mega Glalie looks fun if only for the "Press X to Kill" factor of Refridgerate Explosion.

        Mega Lopunny has an absolute SHITTON of options thanks to unresisted STABs, so its lack in power compared to things like Mega Gallade is definitely compensated for.
        Mega Sceptile will be a really interesting attacker for certain. It's great how it can run both mixed and purely special sets and retain its effectiveness.
        That Refrigerate Explosion actually nears the power of good ol' pre-Gen V Explosion and it's typed, so that's at least SOME niche it has.

      Add CM Mega Audino to my list of things that are bad and you should feel bad about using.

      TPCi can seriously fuck off with how horribly they handled the Demo distribution. Still haven't gotten my copy.

      I'm still debating which comment threads are more cringeworthy between here and Pokememes
      1. Karxrida

        Case-by-case basis. Some are really intelligent while others are pretty bad.

        The sad thing is, it's pretty bad despite the modding, which means there might be a lot worse things that I just don't see

        To be fair, Sturgeon's Law is a thing and is pretty universal.

        I've actually been told by a mod that there's a bunch of posts they really want to delete but can't because there technically isn't anything wrong with them. Not going to name any names, but the posts tend to be nothing but telling us things we already know and not adding anything to the discussion.

      Just curious, what's your favourite new Mega Evolution?
      1. Karxrida
        Karxrida
        That is an excellent question. Beedrill has the coolest design hands down.

    My Characteristic:
    Often lost in thought
    I've been playing Pokémon since it came out when I was about 4 or 5, and I love it. I am NOT a "genwunner" or whatever it's called, though GSC/HGSS are my favorite games due partially to nostalgia. I personally think Pokémon Special is better than the anime, mostly due to concepts called plot and character development that exist in the former and not the latter (though the first and second seasons of the anime are still good). I always choose the Fire type starter on my first playthrough of each new game with the exception of RSE, where I chose Mudkip (no, I did not know of the internet meme at the time).

    My favorite type overall is probably the Dragon type because of their design, strengths, and ease with which they break the game. I personally welcome the new Fairy type that will arrive with Generation VI since, unlike some Dragon-lovers, I understand the need and concept behind Fairy's strength against our beloved Lightning Bruisers. Plus, I DO admire cute things, even though I'm male (no, I'm not gay/trans/bi/whatever, I just appreciate cute).

    I can't remember how I discovered Smogon; it was either through TV Tropes or Bulbapedia. Either way, I browsed through the site for awhile before deciding to join the forums and competitive scene, so I'm what you would call a "knowledgeable noob".
