Some advice to users:
Read the rules thoroughly, don't be a jerk to others, use good grammar, explain your answers clearly
~ Giga Blade X
If you get the answer to a question from a site, make sure to leave a source. A link to said site is also nice. Don't get upset if your question or answer is flagged. If you ask a dupe question, you can learn from the original. If it's low-quality, use it to improve your later questions/answers.

Looking for more advice for users. Please post on my wall if you have good advice for users.
 For new users who post movesets, here is a reference on how movesets should be formatted so they can be easier to read:

[Pokemon] @ [Item]
Ability: [Ability]
EVs: [#] [Stat] / [#] [Stat] / ...
[Nature] Nature
- [Move 1]
- [Move 2]
- [Move 3]
- [Move 4]

Those who get Expert, please, please, please don't misuse your powers like Gligurr did.

atheism is not believing god is real.

That's literally it. Atheism is absence of religion. Someone who does not believe in any religion.

i don't believe in unicorns, does that mean I'm acknowledging that might exist?

I don't believe god exists. that's called atheism.

I personally like Drain Punch on SD Koraidon.

garganacl and ting-lu*
May 27 by Hallucinogens
Generally, though, you wouldnt keep Korai on Tusk, and Collision Course on Garganacl would be 133.3 BP. He didnt mention Drain Punch, which is usually found on setup variants, like his, so I should probably suggest that instead.

Yes. AG began after Mega Rayquaza released in late 2014 and the Ubers community rallied to make Ubers a "proper" tier that could have bans outside Smogon clauses.
May 25 by Fizz
AG didn't exist in 2013! Klefki used to be OU and that was its standard set before Smogon banned Swagger. I added a description.

What do you mean with "grabbing a sample or would you want me to whip up somthing?"
