Bio: Cut a bunch of online tournaments during the SW/SH era, my biggest accomplishments in gen 8 were a Top 8 in the Bilbao Special Event and a runner-up in the last gen 8 Victory Road tournament. I've never played the rest of the older formats, but i would love to have the chance to learn and play them.

Formats played: VGC 2013, VGC 2015, VGC 2017, VGC 2018, VGC 2019 Ultra.
Bio: I started in the smogon competitive game playing VGC 2017, playing all the VGCs and being informed about tournaments and world championships until 2019 ultra. From now on I started in DOU where I haven't done bad at all and where I have played older generations of VGC 2017, managing, for example, to win the DOU BW CUP this year, which enables me to play VGC 2013 and VGC 2015 in a way solid, since I know the metagame well. After dymax's ban in DOU 8 gen made me disengage from VGC 2020 onwards, I consider that I am not prepared to play the VGC stages with dymax

Been playing VGC since 2015 consistently doing well in online grassroots and draft leagues, as well as topping the Showdown ladder. Also played Gen 6 and Gen 7 DOU extensively, placing well on the SSNLs and even making it into the Invitationals. Meow~

Formats played (please state the actual format names): VGC 15 to 19
Bio: I am a quick learner so I'd be willing to play any format (none of them are totally new to me, I am just more confident in 15 to 19). Did a couple of top cuts in some regionals. I'm used to Smogon tournaments and know exactly how they differ from VGC, that's probably a nice bonus

I started playing VGC on 13 and was actually part of nuggetbridge's wcop team for North LATAM (back then It was North and Plate LA) as VGC 13 player. Qualified for worlds in VGC 15, and altough Im less experienced for VGC 18, I played that meta for a bit and am familiar with It.

I really like these old formats, willing to learn and play those which I didn't. I won multiple PC during the 18/19 seasons. Top 4 Buenos Aires Special Event (2019). Also looking forward to help anyone with everything I can!
