  1. Auditioning to Commentate at VGCs. Share some practice videos?

    Hey thanks for the feedback. I'm actually an old-school Melee player so I definitely looked up the Apex series pokemon stream when I was researching this. Frankly, I think they are far, far superior to the guys currently doing commentary for the VGCs. Just restating what is happening in the game...
  2. Auditioning to Commentate at VGCs. Share some practice videos?

    So I've commentated professional gaming events in the past but never Pokémon. Been chatting with someone at TPCi about doing commentary at the 2014 events, so I need to submit some audition videos to prove my chops. Since Smogon tends to train up some pretty awesome players and brew up some...
  3. Battle Maison Discussion & Records

    not sure if this has been posted before but it just got me over the 40 battle hump: If Aegislash is put to sleep, you can still attempt to use King's Shield and switch yourself into Shield Forme. You won't get the protect effect, but you can reduce the damage you take while you wait to wake up.
  4. *Big* News for breeding in XY.

    Does anyone know the probability that I'll get a baby with a Hidden Ability if BOTH parents have the hidden ability?
  5. Aldaron's proposal: Alternatives?

    Don't ban anything. There are no other competitive gaming communities as ban-happy as Smogon. None. This community doesn't care about being competitive at the actual game, they seem to care about making the game controllable and predictable. This is why tiers like BL are stupid. Someone gets...
  6. Stealth Rock Discussion

    @truevillainy, drizzle + SS is actually a really good comparison to stealth rock in this generation. Basically, GameFreak has allowed some very specific things to have a huge impact on the way the competitive game is played. Swift Swim made water types very powerful and forced players to...
  7. LC Fun! - Mystery Egg Trade & Battle Event

    Ok... I got a lot of requests to host another mystery egg event so here's the announcement thread at Smashboards: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=300478 It's going to be Friday night (April 1) at 9PM EST. You can sign up here if you want, rather than make an account there. I'll...
  8. Pokémon Marathon for Charity - ALL NIGHTMARE LONG

    So we've raised $160 so far, but that doesn't mean its a failure. All its costing us is time and even if we only end up with this amount, we raised something. We might only raise enough to feed a few families for a few days, but that's money that would have otherwise been wasted on movie tickets...
  9. Pokémon Marathon for Charity - ALL NIGHTMARE LONG

    Hey fellow pokéfans. This weekend a group of people from smashboards.com are getting together to do a five generation sprint through the pokemon series. Our goal is to complete the story mode in each of the five generations before Sunday night comes to a close. We'll be raising relief money...
  10. LC Fun! - Mystery Egg Trade & Battle Event

    Yeah, fifth gen is ideal since you don't have to use up your TMs anymore to train a pogey.
  11. LC Fun! - Mystery Egg Trade & Battle Event

    I think you are missing the spirit of the event Darkamber. It's not just about giving people bad pokémon and hoping you win the tournament. It's about being creative with less-than-perfect or unusual tools at your disposal. Yes, some people will intentionally give out bad pogeys because they...
  12. LC Fun! - Mystery Egg Trade & Battle Event

    Well if it looks like there's some interest, I'd be happy to host it.
  13. LC Fun! - Mystery Egg Trade & Battle Event

    So I just ran this event on another forum that I participate in and it was a lot of fun. I know its not truly "competitive," but apart from being fun to do, it actually helps players come up with new and creative movesets and learn pogeys they might otherwise overlook in the Little Cup setting...
  14. In-Game Tier List Discussion

    Ok... so here's my argument then. Axew should be top tier, no doubt. Not only does it come early enough that you have plenty of time to train it up and not only does it get STAB dragon attacks that hit almost everything in the game for at least neutral damage, but it also learns the DD/SD +...
  15. In-Game Tier List Discussion

    Just completed the main game. Here are my thoughts on the pogeys I used: Oshawott line: Very good companions for the main adventure. Scald is a great move once you can teach it to them. Aqua Jet actually saved me against N's Archeops in the final battle. Megahorn (which you can learn at the...
