Hello everyone! Thanks or stopping by. I'm a 14 year old who really wants to get into competitive play but doesn't know how to. I want to learn the basics and strategies on Smogon and other sites of the sort and practice on Pokemon Showdown and eventually Shoddy battle. After this I'll apply my advanced knowledge to cartridge games and hope to get into VCG tournaments by the time I'm 17 to 18 or by the time the 7th gen comes out. Any and all help is highly appreciated especially from pro's.
