Project PU Player Of The Week - UberSkitty (Week 14)

#1


Favorite Pokemon: Skitty
Most used Pokemon: Mesprit
Most known for: PU Room Voice, Pokemon Games Driver, QC, Very amazing analyses, Cool user
TJ: Could you tell us more about yourself outside of Smogon?
UberSkitty: Outside of Smogon I'm just a simple little high school student. I do a lot of drama and drawing, and I'm pretty much the math nerd in my class. I also watch a lot of cartoons that aren't anime.

TJ: Where did you get your name from?
UberSkitty: I just used the simple pattern that lots of users use of Word+Pokemon. The Skitty part is pretty obvious, but I have no idea where Uber came from.

TJ: What drew you to the PU community?
UberSkitty: In eighth grade my friend said he had an amazing PU team of Drought Vulpix+Fire Fang Steelix. I already knew about Smogon because of Youtubers, and had been laddering on VGC for a while. So I decided to try PU out, and started to ladder it. I eventually found the PU Room, and got Warned the first day for making too many Life Orb Shedinja jokes. And here I am today. I'm also yet to see that friend again to tell him everything wrong with that core.

TJ: Now that you are on the QC team, will you QC check all my stuff now?
UberSkitty: Depends how lazy I am.

TJ: Thoughts on the current Magmortar suspect test?
UberSkitty: I'm all for banning it. People have repeated the obvious reasons so many times. It makes teambuilding a pain, and I expect similar results with Archeops and Aurorus. I could also see suspects for things like Kingler and Lilligant in the future.

TJ: Are there any underrated Pokemon you enjoy using right now? If so, which ones, and why do you think they’re good?
UberSkitty: There's Duosion, who may not be in the best spot in the current meta, especially with things like CroTomb running around. But I've still managed to get a couple sweeps (I don't know what else to call them) with him, since he can be pretty hard to stop once he gets a boost up if the opponent doesn't have any Dark-types or hax left. He can also 1v1 Calm Mind Clefairy. Things like Gorebyss and Alolan Dugtrio can also put in work, despite their average rankings on the Viability Rankings.

TJ: Best PU oldgen?
UberSkitty: Well I'd say ORAS through complete bias, since it is the tier I started with, although it isn't in its best state right now. Otherwise I'm a fan of DPP, though Articuno needs to be banned. The other two I don't have too much interest in, but maybe I'll get into GSC PU when its released, right Akir?

TJ: Who do you think are the top ten USM PU players?
UberSkitty: Taskr HJAD LordST yogibears amber lamps 2xTheTap Megazard Dibs The Dreamer galbia allstarapology

TJ: Who do you fuckin love in Smogon?
UberSkitty: People like Specs Jigglypuff , Aaronboyer, and allstarapology are all fun to talk to. Same with people like yogibears and Dibs The Dreamer. Also ShuckleDeath, HJAD, Taskr, LordST, and GeneralAnnoyance. Also also shout out to the people that didn't get a shout out, since TJ forced me to pick and judge. Also also also if there's any positive mention of TJ he added it after. TJ is my best friend.

TJ: How often do you eat pasta?
UberSkitty: I'm pretty inconsistent. Sometimes once a week, sometimes not. But I do eat a lot of cereal.

TJ: How many languages do you speak?
UberSkitty: English, American, Pig Latin, and a little bit of Swedish

TJ: How do you come up with those cringey puns?
UberSkitty: I don't know, they just come to me. As if God is looking down at me. Amen.

TJ: Do you play any sports or get any form of exercise?
UberSkitty: I type a lot.

TJ: Lastly, can you give us a team that fits your playstyle and explain it?
UberSkitty:

Jake (Duosion) @ Eviolite
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spe
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Psyshock
- Calm Mind
- Acid Armor
- Recover

Woof Woof Woof (Stoutland) @ Choice Band
Ability: Scrappy
Happiness: 0
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Frustration
- Superpower
- Pursuit
- Facade

Just Punch It (Hitmonchan) @ Assault Vest
Ability: Iron Fist
EVs: 204 HP / 88 Atk / 216 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Drain Punch
- Mach Punch
- Ice Punch
- Rapid Spin

H (Regirock) @ Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 56 Def / 200 SpD
Impish Nature
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake
- Toxic
- Stealth Rock

Rubber (Swanna) @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Hydration
EVs: 56 Atk / 200 SpA / 252 Spe
Naive Nature
- Scald
- Hurricane
- Brave Bird
- Toxic

Magestical Tree (Exeggutor-Alola) @ Dragonium Z
Ability: Frisk
EVs: 248 HP / 252 SpA / 8 Spe
Quiet Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Draco Meteor
- Giga Drain
- Flamethrower
- Trick Room

This is a team I built a while back, before I started stealing everyone else's teams in the suspect. Its centered around the Duosion+Stoutland core, which is cool because Stoutland helps against things like Spiritomb, which give Duosion trouble. Next there's Hitmonchan, who gives another way to deal with Dark-types, as well as supplies hazard removal, priority, and a switchin for special attackers. Regirock gives Stealth Rock and and switchin for all that stuff. Finally there's Swanna and Alolan Exeggutor for speed control and some nice typing synergy.​

☆MagmortarReqSkitty: is this gonna be the whole battle?
☆Dewgongium: :l

i was just trying to live my life man

What will you do if NU takes Stoutland?

Drops you want the most from NU?

Aside from Duosion, UR mons that you think should be ranked?

Overrated and underrated Pokemon and/or sets in the current meta?

After Magmortar, what do you think should be suspected next, if anything?

Any instruments you play/want to pick up?

Thoughts on the BP and Arena Trap ban and how it affected ORAS and USUM PU? What would be better or worse if they had never happened, especially in USUM?

Finally, if you could demote a PU roomauth (or voice), who would you pick?

EDIT: Since you're a Pokemon Games room driver...

Favorite Pokemon game? Main series or spin-off.

Have you ever considered playing competitively on-cart? VGC and Battle Spot, mainly, but other stuff too.

They told me it was good.
You're having those flashbacks too?
That's not a question.
I will be both sad and relieved.
Cinccino would be cool, although that's through complete personal bias, since it would probably be a pain to deal with.
Duosion.
Bellossom is only C on the VR. Enough said.
I'd say Aurorus, I simply find it harder to handle than Archeops.
Nah, I'm too lazy.
FREE TRAPINCH!!! Regular Dugtrio would probably be banned in the process. Oh no. Dry Pass would be pretty nice on mons like Mawile, but I personally wasn't too bothered by it leaving. It'd be interesting to see what the speedpass team woulda looked like though.
TJ
I like BW, BW2, and HGSS. As for spin-offs, I do like Rumble. Even though I only own Rumble World.
I played on non-Rated Battle Spot before coming to Showdown. I beat a guy in doubles with Stockpile Quagsire. It was fun.
Ahhhhhh ooooberrrskkitttuhh

Grats on potw bud, you've come a long way since you started contributing!
Hi TJ
Thx <3 But that isn't a question
who do you ship in PU?

also gratsi :^)
The boat and the other boat.
Isn't that Spanish for thanks or something?
How many Tjay jokes do you make a day?

Do you still want bronzor banned in ORAS?

If you could main any other tier, what would it be and why?

Grats on potw :D
I make TJ jokes?
Yes.
Probably VGC if that counts, since its what I "played" before PU. Otherwise probably something like UU. IDK why.
Thanks! And grats to you too in advance ;)

Thoughts on Skitty and Delcatty receiving a dual Fairy typing?

Favorite non-Pokémon or anime cartoon (there IS a correct answer)?

How does it feel to be the purest soul in the PU community (don't look at me, look at Aaron)?

Rate my eyebrows out of 27?

STAB Play Rough sounds sexy. Tho Delcatty sucks so Fairy-type wouldn't matter much for it.
I don't have a specific favorite. I like Gravity Falls, BoJack Horseman, and all that snazzy Cartoon Network stuff.
Feels like going through a Brita filter.
Unibrow/27
they were clearly speaking in brit u uncultered swine
Piloswine is NU.
An ugly Skitty is still a cute one.
Also thx <3
