Hey everyone, I found smogon not too long ago and ever since I have been hooked! I have been lurking every day for hours at a time, trying to get more information on VGC. Im a noob, Ill admit it. Sure, I have beat tons of pokemon games, trained pokemon of all types and levels, and even battled other trainers. However, as all of you certainly know, when it comes to competitive battling, all of that means absolutely nothing. Ive read a lot of the information thats available here at Smogon and have already learned a bunch. Especially in IV's and EV's and such, which I had no prior knowledge of, plus just tons of combinations and moves that previously I had no idea were so useful. Anyway, the issue im looking at now is not knowing where to jump in or how exactly to fit in the community. I saw battling 101 but the sign up appears to be closed, and in the meantime it seems as if Im not even on the same level of understanding as most others here. Im wondering what I should do or where I should go next to get some training and to actually start practicing and battling. Let me know, looking forward joining with the community!
