My Thought Process:

I've decided people just think wayyyy too hard when they play Pokemon. So I figured I would bring everyone down a notch with a team that's super fun, until it isn't fun to use at all. We'll start at the top. You see that cloyster little billy ? Just get it in on something that won't immediately demolish it and just, just click it. Click the move until you can flinch everything down and your wincon is in sight. At this point you will miss the flinch and probably go into your Magearna. Zard-X has the same feel to it, just click that big shiny first move and win the game turn 4, no thought needed. "Well Snorlax_in_the_way how do you set up these mons?!" Don't worry James I've got this under control, just lead with that 3rd mon and make the game immediately unfun. Because what is more fun on HO that dual screens? Putting those on 1 Pokemon, and on top of that just being unfun, that's how you have fun James. Now we're onto Zygarde, 50% of the time you'll want them to HP ice you behind veil with their lando 100% of the time. Hoopa-unbound is purely on this team because it has literally 4 set up mons and a ninetails-a, so I put the best breaker in the business on the team which would be Banded Kartana Choice Specs Hoopa-Unbound, the king of 2hko'ing everything in the game. This brings us to Magearna, Steve. We use Magearna because it secretly can beat any team, but don't tell anyone, or else you'll lose it.

Threat List:

Everything - This team loses to everything, just don't load it up unless you're playing an opponent you want to tilt big time. The second anything breaks free from Cloyster the team immediately starts losing lol.

Status - Status makes this team cry because it really cant avoid it so. Dodge your wisps and toxics, dont get paralyzed ever, and just dont get frozen. It's just that easy to be good at Pokemon.

People Already Not Having Fun - Let's all brainstorm and think about what stops a team whose pure function is to have fun. Someone not having fun. If you can't tilt them because they're already tilted they have defeated this team, and that's just some of the unfortunate things we have to see in this day and age. Pokemon competitively sucks so just try to play your friends with this team and tilt them beyond belief.

Tilt - If you tilt with this team you immediately lose, but like this applies to every team. Don't play yourself.

Keldeo - This team can't come in on the ORAS king. Rip.


The actual purpose of this post.

I am retiring from competitive mons, at the very least, taking it less seriously. The game as a whole for me has gotten super stale; the lack of change in the CAP meta has definitely played a role in this. Compared to ORAS, especially, the SM meta has seen much less upheaval and as is less fun for me. I'll still be around, but I am done with CAP singles tours for sure, and will probably be less active as whole. As not only will I be retiring, I'm going into my freshman year of college, so we'll see how everything pans out in the future. However, there is an announcement I would like to make about my retirement. I will be having a retirement set, against my brother, Offler, on August 8th. Here are some staple timezones for easy access to when exactly the set will be. 7PM EDT, Midnight GMT +1, 4PM PDT, and Rat it's gonna be 9AM for you. The replays from the set will be posted here for those who cannot make it to the set. Overall, I'd say my experience in CAP has been largely positive. While, yes, I do realize my abrasive nature, I do like to think I'm rather approachable (in my own head at least). If anyone wishes to talk, or wishes to get to know me better/catch-up on old times, feel free to contact me. You can always ask one of my friends for my discord to message me, and I'll probably be easy to find in the Sports room, if not in the CAP room itself. I want to thank everyone who has been there for me, and I'm sorry if I don't mention you in my shout out hide down below.​




The Gen-Next crew, whatever few of you are left, for helping me get my start on PS, especially Nasira

Rage.Spam.Quit. Good friend of mine over the years who I've done many projects with.
Greenlean, Boss DJ, St. Dennis, & Tevin: sports goons dont have/use smogon accounts but still deserve a shoutout for the impressions they left on me during my 4 year tenure.
So sorry for those I missed, when you've been around as long as I have you forget important pieces.​











Take Care

I have battled to the end and now I finally surrender.

Man, we’ve butted heads time after time, day in, day out, and we’re still real close. I think that says a lot about the two of us; you’re damn near my closest friend on this site and it’s hard to see you go. CAPTT 3 was one of the best times I’ve had and you were responsible for a lot of that, and who knows if I’m still here if not for that. Thank you for all the help, discussions, WWE music youtube links, hot takes Steven A Smith style, flame, stall and great times. ;_;7

When he forgets the ultimate TR master (referring to snake). :(

Serious: I hope you have a good life in college, it's going to be hard (not just you, but everyone who has graduated from high school like me). Don't stall your way out of studying for classes and doing homework and projects, and I hope you'll excel not only in college, but in your future life.
