    Hello, I go by many names, but I am most call me Zuty. I've been into Pokemon since it first came out back when I was a wee-lad and while I never fell out of the series, I was brought back in by a close friend of mine right around Ruby/Sapphire and have been a casual player since. I'm a long time lurker on Smogon, mostly to see what builds my guys should go for, but I started reading some articles here and learned about the tutoring program which I'd be very interested into getting into. That's pretty much it for me. :P

    Hello there,

    I am not really new to the metagame and stuff, but I have never been part of an active Pokemon community. I wanted to change this and decided Smogon is the best place to do so :)

    I am 21 Years old and into Pokemon since I am nine. Of course there have been major breaks, but no game caught me like Pokemon did. I play online for about 2 years now, but because I have never been part of a community my knowledge and skills are still limited. My strongest weapon is my prediction which is based on the many games I fought so far.

    I want to improve my knowledge and creativity by exchanging my experiences with you folks :) But apart from becoming a better trainer I want to get to know other people who roll the same way I do. So if anybody is interested in discussing some Pokemon related and unrelated stuff, dont hesitate to contact me :)

    I have never played another Tier than OU and I want to keep it that way. I usually use simulators, but I am gathering a team on my 3DS right now aswell :D

    So thanks for reading, enjoy your day :)

    tl;dr HELLO SMOGON!

    Hello there!

    I'm CoolPikachu. I think I registered here a long time ago, however, I have never posted before or have been that active. I've been on the pokeshowdown server doing lots of RU matches due to it not being popular from a small forum which I come from. The layout on smogon is a little confusing just because I'm used to different formating. I mainly came here because I love competitive battling, and this was my learning ground. I've never been tutored by someone else, which probably explains my lack of skill in battling, but I have read, researched, and learned a lot from here. Never really paid attention to the forums though.

    Anyhow, hope to battle you guys more on pokeshowdown (RU <3)

    Also if anyone can teach me how to put up a signature on here than that'd be great. I'm not used to this type of formatting.

    Hi I'm LH, I like to run stall, offensive, balanced teams in OU/UU mixed. I like to run unusual sets.

    I used to go on the #pokemon channel a bit.
    I'm around 1500-1600 rating on ladder on various alts.

    Hello!

    Carthridge here. Been playing Pokemon since it first came out. Recently beat Black 2 and I want to start focusing on more competitive battling and such. I'm still quite green (Haven't figured out a team/team comp), and I haven't battled since Pearl/Diamond days.

    I hope to remedy that though by learning. Good to meet you all!

    You guys may know me while im playing PS! or see me hanging around UU, but for those who do not, how's it going? Can't wait to play X/Y and to see Heracross get some physical priority.

    Hi, I'm amelt. I've lurked here for a while and played a lot on Pokemon Showdown but haven't really gotten into the community before. I'm interested in becoming better at competitive battling in general as well as the Smogon metagames. I also like to think I'm a pretty good pen-and-paper artist and I'm working on getting better with a tablet, so I'd also like to get involved with the Create-A-Pokemon and art community here. Lastly, I have near-impeccable grammar and spelling and would be open to proofreading the Smog and such or even writing if anyone would want that. My favorite pokemon to use competitively are the small annoying ones... Shroomish and Dunsparce for instance. I'm looking forward to adding something to the Smogon community!

    Hey, Im FreeFormJazz, used to go by names NB and MattR. I just started posting on these forums, but have been into the online meta game since 4th gen started in mid 2007, so I consider myself a sort of veteran despite taking many a hiatus. I would consider myself pretty good at the game, but I still make errors.

    Salutations to everyone reading this post, I am McDuckletts. Just like a lot of people before me, I am fairly new to competitive Pokemon. When I found out about Smogon, everything seemed so foreign to me. Tiers, metagames, EVs, what is this I don't even. However, after a bit of lurking on the forums, I started to become very interested in competitive battling and started battling on Pokemon Showdown. Now, here I am with an account on good old Smogon. I hope to have a great time on here with all of the other members.

    Hey guys I'm bigbooma. I've always liked pokemon but as I've gotten older, none of my friends did anymore so eventually I found this site. My PS name is also bigbooma, I play mostly random battle but that might just be because the teams I make always get pwned in OU haha.

    My favorite poke is jolteon,totally the coolest eeveelution!

    I hope to keep getting better and keep learning more about competetive pokemon, as up til now I really only played the games locally, not with wifi or anything else. Although I did beat all my friends back in the gsc days when more people still played the game.

    But anyways nice to meet y'all! (Yeah I'm from the south)

    hey guys. i am chris, or oritigo as i am known online. im 18 and have been playing pokemon nearly all my life, with red being the first game i ever played.
    i have never played competitively, but i hope to get in on the action, both in battle and in the forums with some help from the community, of course. i have a very theoretical mind, however. i helped a friend make a team that had no losses at a tournament, so i am proud of that.
    my interests include anime, pokemon (of course), reading, video games, and tv. i am always eager to learn, and i learn quickly.
    thanks for reading my little introduction.
    night all!
    p.s. sent this from my phone. please forgive the lack of capitalization.

    Hello, I am Kerilyn (Keri if you wish). I'm not entirely new to competitive battling, but I have not been actively into it since the 4th generation. I hope to become a good battler and a part of the community, if you can help please feel free to message. My favourite pokes are Flygon and Salamence (I'm a big fan of most dragons)

    Hey,

    Toranako here, well... Steven. 27 years old from Scotland, and have been lurking on here for a while, just never really said much (at all) but have been reading alot of information on here for a while.

    I have been playing since pokemon started and even have my blue cartridge with my lvl 100 Balstoise sitting on it.

    I breed alot of pokemon, and I would like to get better at it! I have been battling on and off, and I am not good, and one day I will get better! My teams could do with alot of work, especially as I end up having weird ideas on what would work together!

    Expect to see me posting soon!

    Hello everyone! I'm DollaBillz, I've been lurking around here ever since I first became interested in competitive battling. I only just made my account and started using Showdown, but I've been on PO a lot, and I decided to come here now so that I could learn more and become better! I was never really into competitive battling on the games, but I do own just about every Pokemon game there is from the main series (well, between my brother and I). I'm here mainly in the hopes of becoming a better battler, maybe finding someone to show me how to make a better team even. I usually battle in NU but I'm trying to branch out and try other tiers or teams. That's basically it, I'll probably start posting more soon and look for me in Showdown!! (My username's DollaBillz there as well.)

    Thanks everyone :)

    Hello, my name is Marlin. I have played every Pokemon game from Red to Black/White 2. Despite this I have almost no knowledge of competitive Pokemon or how it works. It sounds quite interesting and challenging. Being an "old" guy compared to most on here, I am simply wanting to learn how to play competitively and give it a shot. Up to now I haven't even tried any of the wi-fi stuff! My sons are in college now and so I have only myself to game with and so I thought an online solution might work for me. Having played a lot of Magic TCG and Yu Gi Oh TCG I thought the strategies in competitive Pokemon might be similar in style if not in execution. I am quite impressed with SMOGON and all it has to offer so far. I look forward to a new learning experience and challenge.

    Hi!

    Well, as the title says, Hi!

    I'm pretty new here, so how about we learn about me! (as if you had a choice!)

    I've played Pokemon since Red/Blue/Yellow, and own at least one game from each of the trio/duos.

    I've been into competitive battling for a while now (year or so) and my favorite team core is Fire/Grass/Water, with my favorite tier being OU. (it has Alakazam, :P)

    My favorite types are Poison, Psychic, and Dark.

    My favorite Pokemon overall is Weezing.

    My favorite non-pokemon game series is currently Kingdom Hearts.

    Favorite past time: Thinking, yes, thats right, thinking.

    now thats enough about me, good day sirs, going to test some odd cores on Showdown, :P

    Hi.
    I joined the forum to try to learn more about competitive battle strategies and whatnot.
    My name is Albert and I'm from China.
    I major in the random battles, since i'm just too horrible at teambuilding xD

    First Post

    I've been lurking in competitive communities for a while. Mostly /vp/ and here. I'm an undergrad in the Southern United States studying statistics. I'm mostly interested in taking what's being done with monthly statistics here and maybe going inferential instead of purely descriptive. Showdown isn't the entire population of Pokemon battles yeah? And also predictive stats to find if some strategies result in more wins or how the introduction of certain abilities would affect different metagames. I'm also hoping to be part of the mentorship program under someone who has a hand in managing data from PS.

    Hopefully I'll be welcome into the community. I have a good starting point but definitely a lot to learn...

    Hey! I'm Inshina, and I've recently started getting involved in competitive. My favourite pokemon outside of competitive is Emolga, and in competitive Celebi. I'm still deciding on what pokemon to use on my PS team, and I'm mainly gonna play in OU and LC. I'm horrid at artwork so I don't think I'd like to get involved in that. Instead I'd be reeeeaaaaly happy to learn about RNG and I love trading. I have Windows XP so I can't RNG, but that's fine. Thanks for reading :P

    Montka. RN DJ. I am an aspiring Poison Specialist. I have loved Gengar Muk and Nidoking since Gen one. :) And with all the new Poison Types my army has only gotten stronger. (Disregarding that Poison Types suck lol) I plan on battling in the OU AND UU Tiers. And eventually I want to become someone that inspires new Poison Trainers :)

    Ello people, I go by Tails and I've been playing pokemon since I was a wee tike. Slowly and surely, I went from a real derp, to a competitive battler. However, I still hold onto the desire of making a pokemon or team others don't pay attention to due to using Tyranitar or Blissey.... So, I reside comfortably in NU and enjoy my time trying to make a team that can actually climb the ladders. Where the ladders go, I don't know, but I want to find out. I'm also still secretly a derp, evident by the fact that Delibird is my fav pokemon, but I'm also an aspiring writer. :D
