If you want to trade for stuff that you personally want to use that's fine though. Here's the rules for that though. Anything with my OT is 100% redistributable by everyone everywhere. However, anything without my OT is not redistributable at all, even by you (sorry, it would get me blacklisted here on smog if you'd trade something without my OT on it! =O)
well, it kind of depends. I'm always extroadinarily wary of trading people even here on smogon. I don't think I'd really be comfortable with accepting anyone elses trades (however weird that sounds) I would just hate to show up with whatever and have it end up being hacked and get DQ'd because of it. Whenever I trade with anybody, I make sure they really know how to RNG and seriously grill them about what specific codes they've used, because certain ones will cause problems when they're hack-checked.
XD! Looks like you're up against Dr. Cossack in the 1st round of the Smog tourney. Don't think this will be as easy as the serebii one. Looks like most of the people from Worlds and most of the people who should have made it to Worlds, but got "donk'd" for whatever reason are in it (IPL, Alakapimp, Zerowing, 616, Batpig, Tyler422, etc...). Also, just a heads up, once the Dr. C's seen your team, he's pretty good at picking it apart (just a warning. :?)
Goodluck to ya. This'll probably be the best experience you'll get prior to actually competing in 2010.
Heeeee's a comin! What I'm gonna do after this distribution tomorrow (did you check your PMs?) is ask everyone what they want and just do them all at once. I was going to wait till all the distributions were finished, but I figured, meh, why not just do everyone's at once! XD
Hmm... If you used Night Shade against Shedinja earlier, that could have helped. Another thing that would have helped was switching out Garchomp for Abomasnow to instantly kill Shedinja with weather. That could have helped quite a bit. Otherwise, it was pretty even. Great game!
