Hi there. Im from the UK too and just wanted to ask you some simple questions if you wouldn't mind. Firstly, i am new to competitive Pokemon battling, although i am not new to the competitive scene as i play the Yu-Gi-Oh Trading Card games all over the world. I have played the majority of Pokemon games from the GBC Yellow all the way to Black. I want to start playing in events though like online and at tournaments (Such as the VGC.) So i have a couple of questions:
What does it take to become a good competitive Nintendo DS Pokemon player?
How long did it take you to become good and how did you do it?
Do you think its too little too late for someone with no competitive pokemon knowledge to Win/Top a large tournament and make a name for himself even though competitive pokemon has been out for awhile?
Thats it for now. I would really appreciate if you answer my questions as i would gain valuable information. Thank you :)
Hey Showsni, I really enjoyed reading your smogon interview. I qualified at Paris for Worlds this year and I look forward to seeing you there dude. I just noticed your masters in maths at Oxford, I might not study at Cambridge University but as one currently situated here I think if I knew that back in 2011 I would've felt that I let down the Cambridge Blue haha.
If you want to train at all during the Summer I should be avaliable, although my training scheme is something I'd rather discuss in private with you once our studies are complete for this year.
Updated the link with all of it fixed. You can redownload the same one and it should stay at that acceptable rate. I'm glad you caught the whole thing because I didn't even think about it. So, thanks for letting me know.
Uhh.. that's my bad there. I accidentally left it that way from when I was measuring the difference. The actual release version will have all of them like that first timer was. I just wanted to make sure it worked for everyone.
