About me: Hi!
I commonly refer to myself as thend and I am a VGC enthusiast. I have been playing Pokémon only since Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and joined the competitive scene after being influenced by Simone Lim and Wolfe Glick. During lockdown in early 2020, Wolfe Glick’s 2016 World Championships appeared on my recommendations and well… here I am now.

I aspire to one day hold an official title of any sort. In the recent seniors player’s cup 2, I didn’t realise that the tournament was the next day so when I scrolled through my discord channels, I saw this pile of “gl;hf!s”. I ask them what’s happening and they say the tournament was beginning in 5 minutes. I’m telling you, I put together a Cinderace + Clefairy team instantly without any prep and still managed to come 9th. That’s why I think if I was better prepared, I could achieve a better standing.

I originally started off just visiting pokemondb.net to search up where to find certain Pokémon and look at movesets but then I eventually spotted people asking questions and rate my teams. I remember browsing through a ton of questions just to gain Pokemon knowledge and I found it all relatively interesting. Then I found Wolfe Glick’s YouTube channel and I’ve never been the same person. As a result, that led me to watching CybertronVGC as well and now whenever someone says hey guys! I feel like it’s the start to another CybertronVGC wideo and welcome back to another road to ranked series where I climb the series 9 ranked ladder, providing live commentary as I go.

My Pokémon journey shows how far anyone can come with mere dedication and an interest.

Thanks for reading about me :)

I look forward to seeing you somewhere on the website!

Hey, I know you’re a good VGc player, and I used to be alright, but I haven’t played for a while and am looking to get back in with series 10. Could you maybe give the general idea of the meta and what’s being used? Thanks

Want to send you a friend request on discord but the following message always pops up:
"Hm, didn't work. Double check that the capitalization, spelling, any spaces, and numbers are correct."
Send me one maybe? NotSomeone#0967

I’m going to change my profile description to update it. However, I’m shocked at that Koko calc- something must have stuffed up lol. Level 100 can only deal max 106% to level 50 Rillaboom…
It could be something about the maximum damage you can do and how once your damage surpasses a certain threshold and the damage counter resets to 0 but if I tried using LO Thunderbolt on Rillaboom in an actual match, I may as well just get wood hammered. Ouch.

Are all of your favorite pokemon meant to counter Rillaboom? Cinderace gets Pyro Ball, Dragapult likes to carry Max Airstream in the form of Fly, Landorus-T also gets Max Airstream, Incineroar just switches in and clicks parting shot until Rillaboom gets to -6, not to mention it also gets Flare Blitz, Gyarados still has Max Airstream, and Drifblim is yet another pokemon that gets max airstream. And Tapu Koko...just look at this calc...

252 SpA Life Orb Tapu Koko Thunderbolt vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Rillaboom: 1925-62949 (516 - 16876.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Also Electric terrain makes it do less???

Thanks a lot ThatPokemonBoi...
even though the question is almost a month old lol.

I ask a lot of VGC questions here because there were questions I really wanted answers to and I realized that not a lot of other people can see some answers to those questions. Lots of people were using Talonflame back in series 5 and asking questions about it allowed people who were teambuilding at the time to learn information, mainly directed towards beginners. I just like to ask VGC questions both for self-interest and sharing knowledge to the vast majority of the people who ask pokemon questions regularly.

Why do you ask so many VGC questions here instead of on Smogon or Trainer Tower?

Hi. I answered your vgc question. I tried to answer it to the best of my ability. It took me a long time lol.
