    The site is still being improved, so there's no set date on when the new analyses will go live. Just stick around I guess :]

    You can try this Wifi Room to trade Pokemon on Pokemon Showdown, if you need any help in there feel free to contact me. My name is Darnell on there, one of the Room Owners. You can also try this Trading forum which deals with simple trades, the people that tend to lurk on there are really nice and will be sure to help you with other things as well, such as evolving Pokemon or answering questions. Honestly, if you plan on doing it yourself the only is to unfortunately try your best in breeding until you get the IVs you want.

    UU just started their UU analyses, RU hasn't started yet and NU doesn't even exist. So probably not for quite a while.

    Hi, I just joined this forum, and I have numerous questions to ask. i'm not trying to bothersome, but I am very confused about......everything. I get the general concept of wi-fi battling etc... but OU, NU, Uber, breeding, ev training sounds like a martians language? Can anybody teach me about these? (I just finished Y, by the way)

    Hey there, and welcome to Smogon! I think the Wi-Fi Sub-forums would be best here to answer your question. And though I'm not a Mentor, you have certainly come to the right place!

    For the tiers, I suggest the Tiering FAQ. This might be helpful for your queries on breeding. For your other questions, it'd be much easier to answer them in real time, as I'm not sure there are many Smogon articles on this. You can join #mentor on IRC through here (http://mibbit.com/#mentor@irc.synirc.net)

    You should check out the PS sprites and then insert the one you want using the 'image' button in the post.

    In general it takes about 6-8 months after a new generation to come out to provide analysis. Also, keep in mind, with every new generation comes new pokemon. What this means is that more analyses have to be created for the extra pokemon.

    Be patient, and for now, feel free to come to different chat rooms to ask about viable sets. You'll always find someone willing to help. If you need UU help, find me at UU.

    I'm Working on a new team of pokemon and i wanted to ask the smogon forum for help. Where on the forums would be a good place to go for teambuilding advice? I only have 2 pokemon on the team decided on so i'm not sure if Rate my team is the right place or not. Also i'm building the team on my pokemon Y cart so i'm somewhat limited in pokemon/moveset options. Is there anywhere on smogon i can go for advice that is willing to take that into consideration?

    Hey, I'm looking for an answer to my very desperate question. I'm not sure if this goes here, but I need an answer so bad:

    I IV'd my perfect little Lotad, but I forgot to check on Google to check when he learns Rain Dance, and I let him evolve without learning it! :( Is this a lost cause?

    Hi Sandakada, Rain Dance is a TM and Lombre can learn it, so don't worry, you can just teach it that way! If you're playing XY, you can find it in Lumiose City according to Bulbapedia.

    In most of the tier forums, you can find teambuilding threads. Here are some examples: OU Teambuilding, RU Teambulding, and LC Teambuilding

    I hate to ask this here, but I don't know where else to ask. Is there a specific forum for trades and FCs? Please and thank you.

    You can create that by putting hide tags around your text, like this:
    Code:
    [hide]text here[/hide]
