Hey guys! My name is HOTSHOCK (my real name's Nicholas). I actually had a previous account that was named Lambo209 but I didn't really post much on the actual forums. I decided to make this account because I wanted a fresh start on the forums (and I wanted my account to tie in with my YouTube channel). I am diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome and sometimes I have a harder time understanding something that others may catch on to easily, so I basically learn at a somewhat slower pace. I have been playing competitively for roughly a year and a half. I have decent knowledge of the OU and UU metagame (mostly thanks to watching other's YouTube videos), but I'm a little mediocre when it comes to teambuilding and prediction skills (although I am continuously improving the former). I don't like basing teams around super standard stuff (like Deoxys-S hyper offense), but I do usually try to give the central pokemon/core the best support I can provide. I think that I'll mostly be active on the RMT forums because I like giving suggestions and I think that it would help me improve my teambuilding skills. I am also an active reader of The Smog and once I grow better competitively, I might try to write up some articles for the webazine (or whatever online magazines are called).
