    Haha don't know what gave you that impression! I always thought we were close in age. Trying to be relevant in VGC again now that I graduated college, we'll see how that goes. Also getting married in less than a month! What's been up with you?

    It really isn't. I've given up. I can't convince myself it's worth the stress, solitude, or disappointment anymore.

    We should talk on IRC sometime. I'm away for the weekend and have midterms on the way, but we should catch up in a format other than wall messages. Hang in there man
    Sad to see you go but I knew it would happen one day, thanks for getting me to where I was and hopefully keep in contact with me. Thanks for everything!

    Ace Emerald do you think that i made a good explanation about mawile of moving into A- in VGC 15 viability rankings.Its really important for me to know.You replied to it but i really want to hear it short and clear.

    It wasn't a bad post. But it could use some work to better convince players that Mawile is A- material. I don't say any of this to be mean or discourage you, I want to provide you with honest feedback because it looks like that's what you're after. Your argument should be more in depth. It should include specific calculations from a Pokémon damage calculator. It should include some calculations for all common match ups. How much does lando do to it? How much does Heatran do to it? How much does it do to venusaur? Again, these should be from a calculator, not just you stating how much they did one time. In addition, you really need to consider how something works in practice versus on paper. Example: on paper, it looks like an aegislash check. Sucker punch does a lot and dodges kings shield. But in practice, aegi can do stuff like Substitute and draw mawile's attention, wasting turns. Another example: mawile moves really slowly, so you have consider that in practice, you have to have a way to ensure mawile stays alive through a turn where it could take 2 attacks before it can fire off 1. You need to consider how the metagame, with all its burns and intimidates, is going to treat a physical attacker. This is a lot of information so don't worry if you don't get it all at first. But if you follow those guidelines and try to paint a more complete image of the Pokémon, your arguments will be amazing and more convincing.
