hello everybody, pdc here.
i've decided to start up a series that talks specifically about how to get better in the world of competitive pokemon. when i look at the ou forum, i see a lack of true guides and resources that teach specifics on how to actually "improve." most guides focus on nuances and metagame specific features which aren't very helpful unless a certain skill level is achieved. getting better doesn't come from data collection or "generic metagame knowledge," it comes from introspection and being able to use abstractions to interpret data.
this series is going to be long, probably. it's something that i've wanted to do for awhile, and youtube being the incredibly accessible medium it is means that this is the most presentable / effective way to get my points across. the written guide is an anachronism; the video is the new media of our day.
but seriously, suggest things (concepts, usually) you want to see me do! i'll update this every time a new part comes out!!
approved by the entire senior staff and community at large because i am friends with all of them and also am the people's champ
