nowadays I feel like I'm alive
Welcome to the Old Gens megathread for VGC! Past formats see play in some grassroots tournaments such as World Cup of VGC among others. They can also be insanely fun to play casually with friends or users in the Pokemon Showdown! room. In this thread, you will be able to find helpful resources such as mini viability rankings, speed tiers, sample teams, and more! Feel free to post anything related to past VGC formats in this thread, including teams, replays, suggestions to a VR, or anything you feel like! Just be sure to post intelligently and don't flood the thread.
