General Introduce yourself!

You're Noah? What a cool coincidence. :D Good to hear that you like AKB too!

My name on Showdown is also Noa-Tan.
I joined Smogon because I want to delve even deeper into the world of competitive Pokemon. :)
My best friend Age of Kings is also apparently a well known member but she hasn't logged in for almost a year ;_;
Yeah, pretty funny right?! I'm quite curious.. how much do you already know when it comes to the competitive side of the game? I'd love to teach you some things you don't know yet, if you're eager to learn of course.
 
Hello there smogoners,

My name is Justin and I am new here. This is actually my first time joining a forum. I came here to attempt to have one of my teams rated. I am looking for any helpful information I can find about pokemon. I have grown up playing pokemon and have played all generations with the exception of the 4th. But it wasn't until a few years ago that I started taking the game play seriously and competitively.

Hey hello Justin, welcome to Smogon. Your first time joining a forum, that's interesting. I can't imagine a life without forums, haha.

I took a look at your post in the Rate My Team section, and it seems that your post is not following the rules. You should check them out. A moderator may lock your thread since it doesn't live up to Smogon's standards. Let me know when you updated it and I'll take a look at your team!

Ok will do thank you
 
Hello everyone! I finally decided to post with this account. I've been playing pokemon since I was young, and stumbled upon competitive play during the B/W era but never got in to it until now. I'm still playing around, but have loved the community I have seen at Smogon, and want to be a part of it. I' mainly learning OU right now, but I may try to branch out into some other tiers. I'll be glad to see everyone around!

Hey VoidKraken and Welcome to Smogon! I loved the BW era and was very happy when BW2 cam out. I know how to play OU but I'm not the best at it because I play VGC. But if you have any questions, than you can go to the Simple Questions, Simple Answers Thread or you can PM me, QueBien, Fluke, Erai14, Chesty, Dr Ciel or InfernapeTropius11!

Hey there, VoidKraken!
How are you finding Smogon? I haven't been playing too long, having started playing Pokemon about four years ago, but competitively for only about two. I started late, around the release of XY, and I have decent competitive skills. I play mostly Monotype, but I do enjoy OU every once in a while. I guess what really got me hooked to Showdown, though, were the Other Metagames. Do you have any ideas about where you'd like to get involved? There's a place for just about everything you might like. If you'd like to get to know the OU community, which I'd recommend as it could help you improve your skills tremendously, check out the OverUsed forum and/or join in the chat in the OverUsed room in Showdown. Feel free to explore and find which forums meet your interests--just make sure you follow the rules! If you have any questions, use the Simple Questions Simple Answers threads or send me, Chesty, Dr Ciel, Erai14, Fluke, InfernapeTropius11, or TheHoodedGamer a PM. I hope you enjoy your time here! :D
 
I am a former lurker and I have played the Pokemon games since Generation 4. I am no stranger to forums.
Hahaha, I clicked it :P. Joke's on you though, cause I actually enjoy the song. Welcome meowmachine, glad to see you emerge from the depths of the internet. Personally I started Pokemon from Gen I, but never got into competitive until Gen VI. How about you? Do you enjoy competitive play, or do you prefer breeding, collecting, etc?
 
Great to hear! I'm pretty much available every day after 8:00 PM and the entire weekend. My Time Zone is GMT +1. We can also use Skype or something, if you find that easier? If not, then that's also fine :)
hey sorry i didn't talk yesterday wanna do that now

Hey whoareyouiam, welcome to Smogon. First of all, I like your username. Secondly, Infernape for life?! How can you adore such an ugly monkey?! Just kidding, I just don't like Generation IV and onwards so much as I do like Generation I - III. I actually quit playing when Generation IV came out. I did play Heart Gold and Soul Silver, but that was pretty much to relive the nostalgia. I'm telling you, at first I was skeptical about Generation VI, but I have to say that the games are freaking awesome. I really recommend saving up for a 3DS with either XY or ORAS. Especially since, you know.. those are the only Pokemon games on handheld that can still go online. When it comes to Wi-Fi on Smogon, XY and ORAS are basically the standard.

Anyhow, glad to see you you're enjoying Pokemon battles. Not sure what you're looking for on the forums, but a handy link for now: The Smogon Simple Questions thread. If you have any questions regarding Smogon and its forums, ask 'em there :)


What's up River, welcome. Your introduction reminds me of that song.. you know? "I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was.. DUN DUN, DUN!" Good luck becoming the best player that has ever existed since there are some really tough opponents out there. If you want I can help you with the basics. I've been into competitive play for ages so I pretty know all the ins and outs. If you don't want me to help you but someone else, then there's Chesty, QueBien, TheHoodedGamer, or InfernapeTropius11. These people know a lot and can most definitely help you out with your questions too :D


What's up Axel, welcome to Smogon. Glad to see someone who is into the more rare tiers like Ubers, Monotype and BH. I once tried to get into BH but I just couldn't get used to it.. But I still like Monotype and Ubers a lot. If you're looking for an expansion on your tier knowledge, I can help you out. I've been into NU, RU and UU for ages now and can tell you a lot about it, if you'd want. As for your team, I hope you get some nice and useful feedback in the Rate My Team section. I will also take a look at it :D

And about Emerald - that's also one of my favorites! I still have to play the Randomized version, because I saw videos and I think it's really fun. Do you recommend it? I'm tend to be kind of conservative when it comes down to older games that have a lot of value to me. Let me know!
are you aware that there are wimmfi severs for gens 4 and 5 or gens IV and V so maybe if it doesn't go for out of smogon's rules you could use that to revive those kinds of tournaments oh and what tier is meganium because i want to make my first team built around him or her mostly him

The only thing I know is that a couple of years ago Nintendo shut down their servers for all their pre-3DS games. I'm not up to date when it comes to other third party servers.

Hello SakuraStarlight!
Welcome to Smogon! To find your other three posts, just click on either your profile picture or your profile name in the top right corner of the page to visit your profile. Then, click on the tab labeled "Postings", and you will find all of your posts there. Since you like breeding and trading, be sure to check out the Wi-Fi forum to find other users who like the same things; you could even create your own trading thread eventually, too! My favorite Pokemon generation is the 3rd Generation, specifically Emerald and Sapphire, which I first played a few years ago. I like XY, too, mainly because Y was the first version I owned. My favorite Pokemon are Bisharp and Lucario, and my favorite type is the Steel type. Anyway, if you need help with anything during your time here, feel free to post in the Simple Questions threads or start a conversation with me, Chesty, Dr Ciel, Erai14, Fluke, InfernapeTropius11, or TheHoodedGamer. Enjoy your time here! :)

Hey welcome to smogon. Sorry about the eyesight problem and the fact that you have to use caps. My eyes aren't the greatest to I've been wearing glasses for 7 years now. If you want to trade the best place to go is the wifi section you can make a trade thread there. People are generally interested in stuff that you obtained yourself and hacks aren't allowed of course. Make sure to also read the rules. If you need something let me know or let Fluke TheHoodedGamer QueBien or InfernapeTropius11 kmow. Enjoy your time around smogon.

Thanks! I'm still deciding what meta to start in, Ubers and UU both look good.

I've loved what I've seen. What I think I've loved the most is the fact that Smogon's community is made up of a ton of smaller communities for all the different boards.
I'll see everyone around!

I wouldnt stay away form here! I love to see Leaf on your avatar <3, she's my second favourite playable character.

My favourite pokemon are Volcarona and Gyarados, and my favourite gens are 3 and 6.

Like QueBien said, you can make your own trading thread at the Wi-Fi forum, or ask anything you want to me, or the guys he listed.

Hope you enjoy your time here! and maybe we could even trade! (Fc: 1349-6498-3435, i dont have too many things now tho :c)
