Welcome to smogon Hellslinger! If you need help gettin into competitive pokemon I suggest checking out the Battling 101 program
. The next round of tutoring starts on April 10th so mark your calendar! You might also want to check out the onsite articles and guides on competitive team building and pokemon strategy! Also check out the Dragonspiral Tower and Rate My Team forums. The archive
has a bunch of really successful teams that you can use to get a feel for what a good team looks like! This forum really isn't the right place to post for strategic help. If you want to better understand how smogon is organized and how forums work you might want to check out the Rules
! Enjoy your time here!
