underlining the bp guide thing, if i had to vouch for anyone itd be mekkah because of this. as for myself, anyone who has any credible reason to know or believe i ever was or am good at "competitive pokemon" bases such a reason or belief in my advance play, which was . in the later stages of the generation i played most of my matches with various bp teams, bp counter teams, and bp counter teams bp teams.
my regular repetition of the term "competitive pokemon" stems from the impact on the term i felt the presence of BP teams had in advance, for better or worse. from talking at length with people like ipl, mekkah and chaos about bp teams to my own experience with and against them there is virtually nothing i feel i don't know about how they affect advance play.
