I apologize if something like this already exists on Smogon and I'm just overlooking it. I'm starting to get interested in competitive pokemon, but I'm finding it daunting to get in to. I've browsed Smogon off and on for about a year now, but I still don't feel like I fully understand everything. I know the tutoring program exists (which I finally plan to apply for), but outside of that I haven't seen a comfortable place to ask my more noobish questions. I think Smogon could benefit from a newbie forum where people like me could ask questions, get team advice, etc., that would otherwise cause clutter in other areas of the site. It would be a great way for the more knowledgeable members to help out, and would ease the transition from being a clueless player to being competent.
