    Serious Balancing Life and Pokemon

    As a child, my parents were kind of strict with allowing me to play video games. The verbal contract we had allowed me to play during weekends. When I was punished for wrongdoing, I'd lose the privilege to watch television or play video games. Around age fourteen, I began to do well...

    Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 1 - Digital Love - Genesect is now banned

    Honestly, I don't know why we keep suspecting this thing. Repetitive arguments and name-calling aside, the end result always depends on each player's view of Pokemon as a competitive game: Those that believe that Pokemon is solely a game of prediction (in which each player is to use their prior...

    Resource Ultra SM OU Bazaar

    Pretty bad team I've got right here. It's fairly slow (at least I think so because nothing actually outruns important threats like Pheromosa). It's built with more of an ORAS-type of mentality, because I've played under ninety games, (thank you, midterms) and lack any sort of experience in S/M...

    What do you like to do after a loss?

    If a loss doesn't set me on tilt, I'll usually look at how I played (on PS, Smash, etc.). If any modifications can be made to avoid that situation in the future, I'll either edit that team or reconsider my approach to allow for more failsafes. Despite there being around 700 Pokémon that I can't...

    Resource ORAS OU Simple Questions, Simple Answers MKII (Read the OP First!) (Now with 100% more Rules!!!)

    What's the EV spread for Defensive Volcanion? I think a stat of 202 should be plenty for bulky SD Zor and SpDef Tran, but a stat of 194 still creeps min speed Heatran, and gives me a little more bulk. Thoughts?

    Gen VII: Pokemon Sun and Moon Discussion MKII

    Morelull Is that some sort of signature sleep-inducing move, or are the move animations adjusted more to the user's specific design? Grass/Fairy is an interesting type combination that I personally think we should have seen with the Florges line in XY. I'm kinda hoping it evolves into a...

    Do you have a job?

    I doubt I'd be of much use, but I'd be happy to help you practice interviewing. No doubt it sounds weird, but I think that practicing with unfamiliar faces may be a legitimate way to familiarize yourself with the process. Otherwise, I'd suggest working on improv skills, as a way to combat the...

    Sticky Have a question? Ask it here! (NOT SM QUESTIONS)

    When are we supposed to get more S/M news? I think I heard that something's going to get released at an event on the 26th, but I forgot what the event was called.

    Gen VII: Pokémon Sun and Moon (New info Post #5834)

    Manaphy has Heart Swap and Tail Glow. The latter was exclusive to it in the generation it was introduced in, and I believe Heart Swap is still unique to Manaphy.

    Anyone have a Youtube channel?

    I wouldn't say active, but I tend to upload when I have free time (kinda swamped by midterms/finals atm), and it's kind of fun. Not only does it help with speaking and presentations, but it also helps you with improv, which in turn makes you more open to new people. Link me to your channel when...

    Life As A College Student

    Lucky. I don't think anyone plays competitive Pokémon at my school... I hope you guys eventually get to meet. In my experience in high school and college, meeting someone that plays mons is kind of like seeing a unicorn.
