"Players are the stars and comets, tier sets are the habitable planets, tiers are their surfaces, tier environments are their fields, stages are its seasons, metagames are their trees, metatopes are their branches, and teams are their leaves. Each battle is a clash of leaves."
"The minute you start talking about who can win in a RBY fight, you're wrong. In most cases, you won't know your opponent's tactics. You can't make assumptions based on their amount of ladder points displayed, tournament record or reputation. The battle can turn at any point. That's what fighting with RBY pokes, such as Tauros, means."
