Welcome guys in the "UU Player Interview", a project where you'll be able to discover or re-discover some well known players of the UU community. Those people may be known thanks to their high-skilled level or their achievements on the strategic scene but also thanks to their dedication into the tier or within the community. Time to gossip !
Howdy Misa ! How are you and how’s your weekend going ?
Hey, I'm doing great. I had a relatively long weekend so I spent a lot of time with family and with friends. I hope you're also doing well.
I'm doing fine, I finished my move out so now I'm chilling ! By the way, could you quickly present yourself for people who don’t know you ?
Yeah, I'm Misa and I'm 20 years old really soon. I started playing competitive Pokemon around late-ORAS and I have been relevant in UU in since early-SM. In the said year, other than getting to relatively high places in all the circuit tournament, I managed to be the runner-up of the UU Championship and in USUM I started UU in Snake Draft League for the Bushmasters. Other than that, I'm a Room Owner in the UnderUsed room on PS!, as well as the UU-QC Team leader, a UU Forum Moderator and a UU council member. I hope I didn't miss anything lmao.
I don't think you miss anything don't worry ! Talking about UU, how do you feel about the current Underused with the shifts ?
The power creep is pretty insane and it makes walls like Skarmory and Blissey really good which isn't the best thing for the metagame but at least we got Magneton and we are working towards banning what needs to be banned. Regardless, on the positive side, there are a lot of toys to play with and to discover which is always good to have in a metagame.
Yeah that's true, I just hope that August shifts would not be to harsh for the tier. Outside of UU, do you have another tier of predilection ?
Well not really, I sort of liked OU for a while but since it mostly revolved around Toxapex-Corviknight-Seismitoad-Clefable cores (Seismitoad not-so now, but still) it started to be really boring pretty easily.
I agree, I feel like it's even "worst" now with things like Magearna and Urshifu.. let's focus a bit on the IRL if you don't mind.. Do you have any passions and/or hobbies ?
Yeah, I play the piano, draw and compose. I also love games like video-games and checkers. Pokemon is included under video games D:
Any guilty pleasure ?
Hmmm I don't know if that counts, but I really love to listen to Bach. I can listen to his pieces all day every day and still love it while other people look at me weird lol.
Obviously it counts ! By the way, are you a Death Note fan or does your nickname come from somewhere else ?
Yeah, that's Death Note. I forgot to mention that I love anime haha. My favorites are Death Note, FMAB, Mirai Nikki and more.
I see. Can you give me three things you couldn’t do without ?
I like that question. These would be music, solving problems and quizzes and Coca Cola.
Oh you are a Coca Cola addict ?
Ehh, I wouldn't say I'm addicted, but I really love it hahaha. I don't like sweet things that much; I barely eat cakes or sweets but there's something about Coca Cola that is unique and I love it.
Alright ahah. Earlier you talked about how you performed in some tournaments in the "past", do you have any goal for this year ?
Just to have fun, I've already established myself as a relatively good player (I believe so, at least) so I won't join any tournament just to prove myself. I'll probably focus on team tournaments more than solo-tournaments because of that.
Yeah you did for sure ! Would you mind to share with us a UU team you made after shifts ?
Yeah, I only made two teams and they're both sampled LOL
Oh lmao, then I'll link them here !
Last question, who is the ідіот you like the most on Smogon ?
vivalospride :3 We have been really good friends for really long and he is definitely an ідіот
A cute one for sure ! Well thanks for your answers and your time Misa !
Thanks, it was really fun n_n
