responding back to what you posted on my VM, no I do not use IRC (though I probably should). I'm always on the main server on PO, but for the convience of less people you can find me on #US EAST on the Pokemon Online server (or we can play on grotto, doesn't matter to me).
so I just checked smogon and I completely forgot about the " Les carottes sont cuites" tournament; sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner. Anyways I'm GMT-5, available almost all the time except 5:00-9:00 on mondays and wednesdays. My common PO alt is I'm noname and my main showdown alt is Charles P. Scene. gl
