    Hello, I'm not as new as some, i was aware of this site, and have been making teams since i found out about tiers such as OU since coming here. I only became aware of the competitive scene about three months after b/w came out.

    I prefer playing my sand team to any other team, mostly because some of my favorite pokemon goes well in sand teams.

    I started to learn more about EV training about a year after b/w came out, and have perfected the art, and have started to learn about breeding for IVs in the past week.

    I hope to start participating in tournaments and other competitions and maybe win a few. My first online official pokemon tournament was last month on the rotation battle, and i got 700th place out of almost 7k people, and i was pretty proud of it, only had one uber, and most everyone else had much more.

    I want to get to the point that when someone goes against me, they say "Man, this guy is really good" and i feel the first step to that is, making friends who can teach me all i need to know, and can practice with me, for practice makes perfect.

    Hello!

    Hello all!

    My name is Kingofthenubes17. I'm somewhat new to Smogon and enjoy competitive battling (this being said, I'm usually going to be on the Wi-fi battle finder.) I play all tiers except for Ubers and Little Cup and I only play singles. My favorite Pokemon is Charizard, and I don't back down until my last team member is down. Pleased to meet you!

    Hello, my name is MyGameDragon and this is my first forum post. I have been wanting to play competitive since the middle of the diamond and pearl era but I am not confident in my skills and have not made a team yet. Also, if anyone knows how I can sign up for the Battling 101 program, I would very much appreciate it.

    Hello Smogoners,

    I am ChaosLegend but I go by Dr.Chaos on Serebiiforums. I got into competitive battling about 2 years ago, but still am not the greatest. I feel like I have the hang of it somewhat and on a good day, I can go toe-to-toe with most people on the ladder. I play a lot of OU, but my favorite tier is probably Ubers. RU is a tier I'm coming to like and UU is ok sometimes. I used to play NU, but then half my teams were destroyed by tier shifts and I didn't feel like fixing it. Right now I'm focusing on learning the LC tier to try and get Voice on PS! because I was haxed by server lag and missed out on the Ubers Voice Challenge. I'm kinda nervous to post on Smogon because of its reputation as elitist and I've seen how people bash others and put them down, sometimes using faulty logic and I really don't have time to deal with people consistently criticizing me; so I usually just lurk. Anyway, I've said enough so I'm going to maybe try posting in other areas of the forum, and hey, maybe I'll like it.

    Umm...hi. I'm...I'm pretty new to the forums part of Smogon. Under typical circumstances, I'm reading tier information, but...oh, I'm rambling again! ._.

    Anyways, my Username is ShadowMarioGalaxy64, but I also go by Paul Mann IV as my real name and, without the spaces, can be known as my username for one or two other forums sites. I'm 19 years of age, currently in school, and I work at UPS! It's...stressful--jdlskauireqwnjvdsjv...here I go again with the rambling... -_-

    Well, as for Pokemon Information, I have attempted to see how making Pokemon works, but it's so confusing. When I did ideas with friends, we tried to come up with crazy ideas. Somehow, we managed to think of a Dragon-Fighting Pokemon that despised Alakazam and the Latis, but enjoyed the lack of Tornadus-T.
    My favorite Pokemon is Gengar. My first one in Red, straight from a Gastly, was with me from Pokemon Tower until the end. My brother and I traded for evolutions. He was once obsessed with the once-broken Psychic Type and I wanted Gengar, so we traded for our respected evolutions. In Gen 2, my very first Shiny Pokemon was a Gastly in Crystal--the Bellsprout Tower.
    My luck with Shinies has always been high. My friend, though, played Ruby and got a Shiny Torchic (the jealousy that day). Though that is true, I've caught Safari Zone Shinies like Beldum and Riolu, though how I managed to do so is beyond me. My favorite find was the set Beldum in Emerald. I got it and thought "Okay, I got Beldum so I can get Metagross. Awesome. Let's check it ou--" At that moment, I noticed that it was shiny. Dances of Joy happened that day.

    Tier-wise, I have always been an OU and Uber lover myself. OU is just so balanced (save for Kyurem-B the way I play it) and Uber has Mewtwo, which I still believe is the hardest to stop Pokemon ever.

    My very first team consisted of the following: Shell Smash Cloyster, SR Forretress, Choice Scarf Haxorus, Wobbuffet, Toxic Blissey, and SubsDisable Gengar. I swear that half of the people I fought couldn't get past Cloyster. It took out Uber teams all by itself...only because I gave it Focus Sash (which is frowned upon, apparently?)

    Though that is true, I want to further understand competitive battling. I want to be able to get out there and be a threat to everybody. I don't like being beaten...as it's a flaw in my personally by being competitive like crazy.

    Well, that's my post. Here's wishing the Rotom Moderator God-guy and everybody else on here good luck! ^_^

    Hey-O! Aquatile here.

    I've been lurking the forum for about a year and half, but this is my first time posting.
    I'm most interested in contributing to the community with writing of any kind that has to be done, from the Smog to a Little Cup Analysis.
    I've been a Pokemon fan since the age of four. My first Pokemon game was a Silver Version that had a faulty save forcing the first three gyms to be played ad nauseum.

    Loved it ever since.

    Hey everyone, my name is Caleb and although I've been playing Pokemon constantly since Yellow came out, I'm outstandingly mediocre at competitive playing, which I would like to get into a bit more. I'm pretty keen on UU because I've always been a fan of Mons who are good, but not the best. My favourite Pokemon is Cubone, but I have quite the soft spot for Sceptile purely after seeing the episode where Ash's took down that Darkrai. The anime is awesome

    Hey I'm Dan, I'm 14, I've played the games since first gen, and started playing them around 2 or 3. I normally just play them for fun, although recently I have been wanting to get better at them. You'll probably see me around the Battling 101 forum and on Pokemon Showdown, honing my skills :P, also irc.

    See you around.

    Hello!

    My names Beta. I'm 17 years old and I've started playing Pokemon before I could even read! My first games were Yellow and Gold. My favourite type is Ice, and my favourite Pokemon is Froslass.

    I've been here for a bit, but I'm very shy, so I've never said anything or battled very much...I'd like to change this though!

    I found competitive battling about a year ago, and even though I don't have much practice, my favourite metagame is VGC. I've been learning as much as I can about it, and I'm waiting for tutoring to open again. I also love teambuilding! I'm probably not great, but every once an a while I go on Showdown and build a random team. I find it fun~

    I'm also a bit of an artist. My art isn't the best, but I'm almost always drawing, so you might find me around Smeargle's Studio at some point.

    Nice to meet everyone, I hope to learn lots~ c:

    Hey everyone, name is Chris and I'm new to the forums here. I have been a decent competitive battler during 4th gen, but gave up towards Black 2 and White 2 due to the ridiculous amount of PokeSav Pokemon. It kind of disappointed me since I have gone through so much dedicated time to breed and EV train. However, with Gen 6 right around the corner, I'd like to pick up right where I left off in competitive battling. I would love to learn new things such as the tiers, strategies, and building my own amazing team (with help of course). These Mentoring and Tutoring programs really caught my eye and I think I'll definitely sign-up in April. Can't wait to meet new people here!

    Hello, my name is Mixed.

    I don't really know what to expect here, although I have been involved in many other communities. I can assure you one thing: I love Pokemon competitive battling and I am eager to learn more about metagames for I am not that experienced. I am a quick learner, but I am quite lazy and not present most of the time...

    Aside from the main series, I enjoy playing the PMD series. I have a DS and a 3DS. I'd like to be involved in The Smog. My favorite tier is NU. My favorite Pokemon types are Ghost, Ice and Grass.

    Thank you for having me here.

    Okay, i'm UnicornSparkle, real name is Jason. i play showdown simply because PO has wired tiers, like roserade being BL. i've played pokemon here and there for a while but only get into competitive battles a few months ago. but if you see me on showdown ill play a few rounds with you guys.

    this would be the first forms community that i actually want to get into, so my forms skills are non-existent. so if anyone has tips they want to share with me, ill happily take them. like the whole signature thing, and gifs, and how they get the sprite of the pokemon on their posts ect...

    hopefully see you guys on later

    Hello Smogon! Ghost here, I'm 23 years old and I'm from Spain.I have been playing the games since blue and red were released, and tried to get into competitive battling early 4th gen, still due to some issues, I just didn't have the time to play as long as I wanted, but since those issues are over, I think it's time to take back what I like.
    I hope to learn about competitive theory (stats, typing combinations, EVs, IVs, movesets), and competitive practice (mostly showdown battles atm since my DS died), also would like to learn about most of the things in order to help newcomers myself, since I find certain satisfaction on doing so I also love speculating and debating upcoming features for games such as 6th gen.
    Feel free to challenge me on showdown by the nick of GhostCY whenever you see me, the more practice the better, and if I can help you with anything, please let me know.
    See you soon!

    Hello! I'm AntiCore, a relative newcomer to the idea of competitive battling. I first started out with pokemon blue back when it came out, and have recently gotten back into pokemon with the help of black 2 ^_^

    Haaaaay guys, I'm Alex! I know I created this account a long ass time ago but I've never actually posted here myself before, only been lurking so I'm gonna change that from now on. c;

    I started playing competitively last year but I'm still VERY green and inexperienced. My favourite tier is NU because I'm a hipster at heart, although I also play RU and UU from time to time.

    So yeah, that's all. Looking forward to becoming an active part of the forums and improving my skills.

    Hello there, I'm David! I'm a college student and I've been doing competitive metagame battling for about 2 years now since some high school friends introduced me to it. What Smogon does is really cool for advancing the nature of this children's video game :toast:

    I'm really interested in getting involved in tournaments here in the Smogon community. I've been active on Showdown since August of last year and really just enjoy building teams and battling. My favorite tiers are NU and OU.

    That's about it!

    Hey,Saezar here!
    I've lurked on this site so many times it felt disrespectful not to give some contribute!

    I recently started battling in competitive grounds (thanks to the user-friendly-ness of Showdown)

    I'm good at drawing,so see yourself in the art department any time soon!

    Hey Guys (and Gals)

    How's it going? I'm FurretFatale/Furret/Quinton/Tyler, any of the above is fine~ I've had this forum account for quite some time, just haven't used it. But, now is as good a time as any!

    A little about myself: I started playing the TCG and watching the shows before I even knew there was an actual video game. I started with GS, but quickly backtracked and caught myself up with originals. I'm 18 now, so I guess that means I've been a huge fan for like... 13 years?

    Anyways, I used to take part in competitive play, but dropped my interest quickly. I'm hoping to start getting involved again since BW2 are still going strong and the 6th Gen isn't too far ahead.

    Send me a message or whatever you'd like! :)
