    How do you pick a version?

    Generally, I've been lucky since me and my twin could get a different version each and trade as we see fit. Red/Blue: I picked Blue because my younger self really liked Blastoise. Gold/Silver: We had Gold before Silver as we got a ton of GB games in a job lot. When we got both though, I still...

    Thank you. If you were able to get such a good streak with this, my expectations are pretty high.

    Metagame np: DOU Stage 0 - Tale as Old as Time | Magearna and Zygarde Quickbanned | Eevium Z Quickbanned

    I'm impressed to see that Volcarona do this well in metagame with both Zard-Y and Heatran with it, although I'm sure the Talonflame nerf has helped things. I'm interested in this example team you have for a Volcarona + Milotic core, could be possible for you to provide an import?

    Gen 4 was the one that REALLY got me into the series. Gens 1-3 led the way for me but this one was the one that became too much for my young mind to handle. Sinnoh was a fantastic region and the selection is just fantastic; Garchomp, Darkrai and Dialga happen to be some of my all time favorites...

    I meant at every little thing. Even Diantha's battle theme in XY.

    I don't get involved with free-to-play games. Meaning Shuffle would fit into this due to the player having to pay to progress. I'm going with you here. While I believe XY is as good as the rest, ORAS definitely felt a little incomplete and they didn't go the extra mile unlike with HGSS...

    Oh, my bad. I thought you were implying that the Nidos were available in B2W2's main game. Yeah, they were great in Yellow speed runs.

    IIRC people have had the best luck with Emboar and Excadrill in B2W2 speed runs. That's what I remember from a wiki devoted to Pokemon speed running. Also, I don't remember being able to find the Nidos until a Hidden Grotto is found at Route 2; which happens to be in the post-game.

    I'm mainly partial to Sylveon because I'm a sucker for those abilities that turn Normal moves into a particular type. If only there could be simpler name for them.

    I'm going to throw my UOs in now I've stumbled across this thread. I don't give a crap about the Eeveelutions. I hate the anime except for Origins, Mega Evolution, and Legend of Thunder. Basically, anything to with Ash makes me want to head desk. I'm not begging for any Pokemon to be in Smash...

    XY OU XY OU team semi-rain (1500+)

    To improve further you could write more detailed analysis; 3 to 4 lines for each Poémon explaining why you put them in and what they do to certain threats. Explain how certain members help out each other, like Medicham breaking down walls for Kingdra. Toxic is also better than Rest on Politoed...

    XY OU XY OU team semi-rain (1500+)

    Hi, Welcome to Smogon. I see a team with lots of potential. Your Medicham in particular is very skilled at breaking down walls and has great offensive synergy with Kingdra. But your team does not show the abilities the Pokémon have. Add in Swift Swim, Drizzle, Pure Power, Oblivious, Magnet Pull...

    Sticky Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

    Being Choice free could have disadvantages. Although because it is Kyogre we are speaking about, disadvantages mean advantages for the metagame. It may not be as fast or as strong without Choice items.
