Hello again. I'm guessing by now all of you know that the Rotom formes have changed types. Of all of those type changes, I'll be focusing on the Rotom forme that will benefit the most: Rotom-W.

There are some simple...
This is just an idea I thought up while chatting with Zystral about the possibilities on Swords Dance Flygon.
What if we had a Theorymon ladder?
There could be nominations and a voting and an approval process for moves that we might want to test on certain Pokemon (for instance, Close...
A Crimson Swampert RMT
---> This is my latest go into the field of competitive battling. The initial idea was to form an offensive scheme off of the acclaimed defensive combo of Heatran and Celebi. Over time, it grew and revised itself numerous times to become what...
