    So I was updating an old forum I used to post at with my latest Pokémon related writing, and I came across what I realize now is an article from The Smog. I read it a long time ago, but I didn't remember where. Special thanks to Oglemi for writing this enjoyable piece xD

    P. sure it was that one, and then I distinctly remember reading Doug's interview. I initially lurked around on Smogon because of CAP, and then I actually started contributing to Smogon when R_D would post those Recently in C&C news posts on the front page and I noticed a ton of spelling and writing mistakes in Heysup's stuff so I created an account and posted all of them in the Small Changes threads.

    The 4th Gen type analyses. I don't remember which one I read first, but I read the articles on all the types.

    Mine was the grass type analysis, back when I was trying to beat the Platinum Elite Four with only grass types. I remember having no idea what STAB and OU meant and just overall have no knowledge of competitive pokemon. But I later saw more Smog articles, got interested, became a member of this site, and am now trying to write for the Smog. Things come will full circle when some other noob sees my article ( if it is accepted) and decides to get into this site. Life has a funny way of working.
