'Man, I would love to play Pokemon with some skill, but this super competitive stuff is so confusing ;~;'
Ever felt like this? Well never fear! Welcome to a new community project centred around helping new and old players alike make the competitive scene their second home!
Hello again and welcome to this thread! I'm very pleased to announce the official release of this competitive tutorial series! If you're new to this website, some users had an idea to help out newer users wanting to get into the competitive scene. There is a lot of untapped potential here and we want to see it unleashed. And now after being approved, we can officially get this under way!
Note: Articles will now released biweekly, meaning there will be 2-4 every second week instead of 1-2 every week. This gives the writers more time to write and editors more time to finalise.
So what is this about then? Basically, a bunch of knowledgeable and experienced battlers provide a resource where new players can be sent too if they don't understand something or just got into the game. these articles provide helpful beginners information, handy hints and a pot of experience to get everyone up to speed on the scene.
Below (in the answer area) are going to be the completed articles. This thread will be added to every week or so with new articles, so check back regularly! There are also multiple writers on more than one series, so there'll be some variety as well.
In terms of scheduling, I'm hoping to have at least one new update per week. I'm a busy man with a lot to do, hence why there are multiple writers and editors.
Interested in writing? We're interested in competitive and non competitive alike, so if you have an idea for a series or even a one of, let us know so we can help you put it out there!
Requirements to write:
Good standard of English and clear explanations. Try to use examples and keep everything simple
Your account must be at least one month old (with exceptions), and must have a reasonable activity.
Be knowledgeable in whatever it is you're talking about. You don't have to be the best around or anything, but good enough.
Other than that, there's nothing majorly special you need. We also need editors and proofreaders; people who look over, edit and reword articles before they get published. If you want to do that instead, you can!
If you're interested in either of these, post on my wall saying so and I'll see what I can do!
Note: Please do not be offended if I say no to your request. No one here is obliged to accept whatever it is that you do. It's not personal. It's probably because we don't need writers or editors, or your topic is already being worked on. We do not accept spam or harassment, if you constantly hound us for responses or abuse us, a Mod will know about it.
That's about it! Sorry for being so long, and thanks for everyone's patience and support! Any questions? Message me on my wall or post in the comments, and I or someone else will answer you when possible.
Thanks for reading!
