Qualified and competed in Japan Nationals 2021, Rank 1 in every SwSh format as well as 80+ gxe in all + Rank 1 on cart once with 1980 rating as well as a few other Rank 1s mid month in other formats, top 30 in 3 ICs in VGC 2020 and VGC 2021, won/top 5 a bunch of Japanese ladder tours with 1000+ participants in various formats.

My overall SwSh draft league record is pretty positive and I ended VGC 2022 with a 14 win team tour streak. (6-0 APAC league (12-0 in games), 4-0 VR World Cup, 4 wins in a row in VGCPL 2 (after starting 0-2).

TLDR: do not draft me for SV please I only want to play SWSH, or fill in for SM if subs are needed

I played VGC a lot during the SS era, mostly for fun, but over the last nine months I've played DOU as well and have started actually taking the game seriously. I've had some success in DOU (won my first 11 sets in SS, and helped US West win the doubles world cup with a 5-1 record during SV). I'm starting to get back into VGC (currently 4-0 in a draft league) now that I'm actually playing competitively, and would really appreciate the chance to get to play more VGC at a competitive level.
