    So... I turn 30 next week

    That's right, RIP my youth. As I turn the page to the next decade of my life, I find myself thinking a lot about how I spent my 20's. All in all, I really can't complain about the last 10 years of my life. Some highlights that I'm proud of: I spent my entire career in the gaming industry...

    Questions RE: New Ghosting Rules

    If an entire WCOP team is found to have been on a Skype call during a match, is that whole team tournament banned for a year? And if so, are they eliminated from WCOP? West has never been much for Skype or voice calling in general, but I know many other teams hop on Skype calls for fun. I would...

    Smogon's Social Media Index

    A few weeks ago, I watched as a foreign group of players all rooted on one of their own in the Tour finals via Twitter. I thought the idea of connecting with fellow Pokemon lovers outside of just the Smogon forums might be cool, so I figured I'd put a thread together to compile a list of Smogon...

    PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

    Some of you might remember me talking about this game a month ago or so on IRC. Well, now it's out and I want to hear what you think! I've been playing almost nonstop (when I have free time) and I'm loving it more the more I play. I Platinum'd the game on release day (thanks to owning it two...

    Smogon Tour - Season 11 Finals! [Won by Golden Sun]

    Congratulations to all of the Season 11 finalists of the Smogon Tour! With this being the first Tour to include BW, it was very interesting to see what the top 16 would end up looking lke. This season we actually came to a four-way tie for 16th, so before the finals can "officially" start, we...

    np: OU Suspect Testing Round 4 - Blaze of Glory

    The results of the Round 3 voting brought quite a few big changes to the metagame, which as some of you know have caused quite an uproar across the community! Fans of Blaziken for generations (Heysup) had to watch in despair as the badass starter was shackled and locked away. Along with Blaziken...

    No Soap? No Shampoo? No Problem! (My 2k)

    So for my 2k, I decided to make a thread which can enrich all of your lives! Back in early December, someone linked me to a blog about how someone did not use soap or shampoo in a whole year. You can read it yourselves if you want (it's a good read IMO, and not too long), but tl;dr, his skin and...

    OU Round 3 Non-Pokemon Suspect Voting

    Yeah, I'm calling this thread "Non-Pokemon Suspect Voting" because I didn't want to make multiple threads for abilities and the Evasion Clause extension. Anyways, thank you all for participating this round. It was a long and tiresome one, but I think we all learned a lot from it, and I for one...

    Smogon Tour 11 Hosted on New Smogon University Server!

    As you all know, the SU server tends to crash periodically, so hosting the Tour there is really not safe. I had been concerned about this for a while, but thankfully, Rising_Dusk came to the rescue and is allowing us to host the Tour on the CAP server! I encourage everybody to join the CAP...

There are three options for this vote (see below), and you must list each option number, bolded, in your post in the order of your preference. Your numbers MUST be bolded to count, so don't...

    OU Suspect Testing Round 3 Voter Identification and Suspect Nominations

    Phewf, that was a long one eh? The first full-month suspect testing for BW OU has finally finished, so what are your thoughts? The "Top 15 + 15" method seemed to really work in encouraging people to push their accounts to the limit, judging by how high the ratings were this time around, compared...

    eff you chaos

    You were supposed to be studying hard at Princeton right now, but instead I find that you're pursuing an acting career? You think that by dying your beard and straightening your hair, we'd somehow not recognize your name? At least be honest with us, man...

    Rising_Dusk's Proposal

    Before you read this, please note that it's a pretty sensitive issue, so I don't want to see any discussion about this in public channels until we sort things out. So yeah, lets hear some thoughts.

    Gen 3 np: ADV Suspect Testing - Lean on Me

    Hey guys, if you've been paying attention to the Tournaments and PR forums recently, you would know that ADV has been added to the Tour metagames, and that there has been a debate about whether full BP should be allowed or not in said Tours. From that debate, we decided to do a suspect testing...

    Another New Challenger Approaches!

    So for a long long time I did a lot of work for Battling 101, and I had a vision for where it was headed by the time I got officially promoted as the badge leader. Unfortunately, shortly after that I was asked to lead Pokemon policy for the 5th generation, so I simply didn't have enough time to...
