About me: Greetings PokéFans!

I have been a Pokéfan since I was 6 years old. (Since 2005. You do the math.) I came to this site, mainly so I could communicate with others about this line of absolutely awesome games. I want to learn where I can get the most help for VGC Battles, and what I can do to become better at VGC and just playing the game in general. Competitively, and non-competitively. So, feel free to leave resources on my wall for me to take a look at :) And please, please, please do your best in answering my RMTs. Thanks guys! :)

Other facts about me:
- I am a Saxophone Player and I play 1st chair Alto in my High School Jazz Band, and 2nd chair Alto in my High School Wind Ensemble.
- I can play guitar, piano, a little bit of drums, all of the saxophones (duh), Irish penny whistle, flute, clarinet, and a little bit of trumpet.
- I am a First Class Boyscout.
- I love to write fictional stories of my own creation :)
- 65% of my friends are girls. Yea. I'm a stud. Jelly dudes? Haha just kidding :)
- I've never played Gen VI since I only have a DS Lite, but the first Pokémon I ever Drew was Xerneas. Awk
- I am hopefully going to start my own YouTube channel specifically for PokéVids. Yay! I'll officially be a super-nerd!!

Random goals I have:
- Have at least one song completely composed for my Senior Culminating Project
- Become Eagle Scout by January 22nd, 2017
- Be able to forge a real sword
- Have a completely formed and committed band of my own
- Complete the book I am currently writing by Spring, 2017
- Own a 3DS or 2DS by June 19th (I have my reasons)
- Own Pokémon X, Y, and ORAS by June 19th as well. (Okay, my reason is that I will be gone for 8 weeks this summer, in the middle of the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness in Oregon. I'll be working at a Boyscout camp. Anyways...)
- Complete my DS collection of Pokémon games. (Platinum, HeartGold, SoulSilver, Black, White, Black 2, X, Y, and ORAS. Yes. I only have Diamond, Pearl, and White 2. Very sad.)
- Attend Western Washington University after High School.
- Final Goal: Become  a High School Band Teacher.

If you have taken the time to read this, thank you so much. I hope you enjoyed reading my very eclectic taste in interests, and if you think something is interesting or you can relate to something, let me know on my Wall! :)

And remember......
Gotta Catch 'Em All!

I see you already found both Scilicet and Nugget Bridge for VGC… well, I'm always happy to helop too :D

Any luck yet btw?

Just that for VGC, rather than smogon (lol no) use Nugget bridge. Infinitely better.

Sorry... I haven't kept up with the recent VCG. I don't know what the threats are for this year. :|

Also if you want a quick rating, I suggest Smogon. The RMT here has more teams than people available/ qualified/ wanting to rate them, so a lot of teams go unrated.

Hey Arceus my brother posted a team, you should take a look at it, and write a review, he needs the criticism haha and say who has the better team because he is confused :)

It's a little difficult to explain anything without Showdown for me because I'm more of a hands down person; meaning I prefer actual battle experience over lecturing people on a chat base xD

If it isn't working out for you though, I could try explaining it on chat/piratepad.

If there are any rules you're confused about, feel free to ask me or any other active staff member about it. We'd be happy to explain them to you if you're unsure. I guarantee you there's a good reason behind every rule we enforce; we don't make them up for no reason! Most of the ones you broke just come down to the purpose of the RMT section, which I'm sure Qwerty just made a bit clearer for you. I'm certainly not going to ban you for simply making a mistake like that. That's ridiculous.

With reccomendations on how to get the basics down, check out our Pokemon Showdown server (http://pokemondatabase.psim.us). Scillet already linked the site below so I assume you're familiar with it? There might be some people there who'll help you out. If not, check out this thread. http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/238563/how-to-get-into-pokemon-competitve-battling I posted an answer there for a person who'd never played competitve before at all, but the stuff there should still cover a lot of the stuff you want to know.

With the question you made about opinions, what did you mean by that exactly? If you're talking about the rule about no polls, once again it's about the site's purpose. Opinionated posts like polls don't have a correct answer, so they're not suited to a Q&A format like the one used here. There might be a separate forum in the future that'll allow open-ended posts like that.

As for your team, it seems someone's already been in before me and approved it. It should be there now. Good luck :)

Don't worry, you're not the first to make that mistake. :P

RMT = Rate My Team, or the Battle Subway

Normally that's supposed to be the chat room, but these days the chat room is kind of wacky and doesn't really have good battlers. You can get opinions on RMT though (albeit mostly under the comment section of the question).
