Hello all, I played my fair share of pokemon during the DPP era, and I stopped playing for about two years and a half, when recently a friend convinced me to get back on the stage. But I have been surprised to find that most of the lower-level ladder (yes I suck a little on this new metagame XD), most of the people I encounter are really different from what I have been used to, i.e. passionates pokemon fans with good sportmanship, and tend to be insulting crybabies. Check this replay if you don't see what I mean: http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/ou6334070 And it wasn't even the worse I've seen. So I want to ask all the smogonites out there: do these kind of people are common all over the ladder, or does sportsmanship has retreated to the higher peaks of the ladder? Thank you for your answers, that may lead to my complete retirement, or to me rising to the top in order to battle you gentlemen (or women ;)) . PS: fyi I'm currently rated around 1650, so I don't consider myself to be a total scrub, however it is true that sometimes I have troubles with the meta.
