    and was mentioning how since the main reason I bothered to start a YouTube (my bss skills) and by extension w/e I do pkmn related such as ps and smogon etc, I should just have opposing Emperor Kyogre raid and destroy us in this vulnerable time

    lol I hate playing at the start of new seasons coz the ladder is fucked. wait like a week for it to settle a bit and play again. maybe try out the special ladder in the meantime or practice on free battles for the upcoming legends rotation comp

    I was on a 3 game win streak and then lost 3 straight to literally super lucky stuff. There's no control over that whatsoever. And then it continued randomly afterwards too

    the lower ladder is why I struggle to find motivation to even get started tbh. just bring mega kang until you reach at least 1600 then bring the real team

    I mean the real reason I was sub1500 was because of hax losing games that were highly in my favor. Low ladder vs high ladder meant nothing in those games I had. But I know what you're saying the first 100-150 points just feels like a useless grind irrelevant for true laddering results later on and really is discouraging every season reset

    I always take a week or two off at the start of a new season to let it settle a bit (let the weird players drop to the 13/1400's). Like right now I'm finishing my living dex so I can SR shiny legends :)
