    I suppose I will get started on a LC team since I missed the Normal type tourney. Just to clarify, we would be using completely unevolved pokemon correct?

    Heh, it doesn't even work on my iPad. You can keep battling each other while we wait. I just play whenever I can get onto a laptop.

    LC is such a troublesome tier to work with imo. There's so many egg moves I can choose from, yet I have like 300 Pokemon to choose from in that tier.

    Edit: I'm going to make an RU, a Middle Cup team and a Dreamer team.

    For those of you who don't know, Middle Cup is a tier also known as NFE, but more specific. All middle staged Pokemon in three-stage Pokemon families are allowed in this tier.

    A Dreamer/Aspirer team involves all NU and RU Pokémon ONLY and their OU sets are moved only. UU Pokémon aren't really included because they have a better chance at becoming OU in the next generation. So if there are 6th gen UU Pokemon that have OU sets, they aren't really Dreamers since they may rise to OU in 7th gen.

    Its just yvetal is likely to have a 2-4 week ban. If its four weeks we can battle on the weekend after he gets back. But if its two weeks we would have to wait until the weekend after the weekend after this weekend because i am away next week and we can only battle on weekends due to time differences.

    Theres a middle cup? That is my thing!!!

    I like that there are so many choices in LC. It makes for more varied teams. However, I wish I could say that I wasn't confused by your "Dreamer" team explaination. I suppose Smogon just goes too deeply into tiers for my liking. It reminds me of the tiers they used to organize characters in Smash Bros. Brawl.

    Because Smogon manages these tiers, some people very readily follow suit and do the same. Middle cup may not be official, but it's still a tier. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but it does lead people to place needless restrictions on themselves and their teams. Tiers like Middle/Little Cup are welcome in my opinion because they introduce the opportunity for everyone to make use of pokemon we don't see quite so much of, but that is only to offset the swarms of OU teams out there. OU, UU, NU, etc. are all unnecessary in my eyes. We should be free to field whichever pokemon we want, whenever we want. God Bless America! (Sorry about that last part, I got a little carried away)

    Lolwhut?

    The tiers are there because some n00bs out there complain and complain "Why do my Butterfree and Charizard always lose to Excadrill and Gastrodon?" and battle analyzers work so hard to make sure such complaints don't happen again. They're doing it so we don't look like we're cheating and so we can be matched fairly!
    Go ahead and put your Aggron against someone's HP Fight/Water Magnezone (never use those!) but don't go crying why you lost.

    @> Ninja Eevee: It's good to know that I'm not the only one who sees the needlessness of those coveted tiers.

    @> GenosectArceus: I can understand if noobs need Smogon to keep themselves from getting royally owned, but back in my day (yes, I just took it there) we had learn from experience and go with the flow. We didn't have websites to tell us what pokemon to use and what moves, items, and teammates they should have. At the end of the day, if I lose because I made a rookie mistake, I make sure I learn from it and prepare for the next time. You will be hard pressed to catch me raging because I got wrecked by my opponent. You'll find that I'm a pretty mature loser

    Also on a side note, I've been breeding charmanders with a Japanese Ditto for a couple days now and now have enough extra charmanders to populate Unova. However, I still don't have a single shiny. Anyone want a charmander?

    Middle Cup would be a great tier for the next tournament.

    But personally... We should do WONKYMONS, the best tier in existence. http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3473240

    Basically it's a tier where every single pokemon gets rid of its ability and is granted not one but TWO RANDOM ABILITIES. There's a server for it on PS. It looks like SO MUCH FUN. The randomly generated list is in the link. There's stuff like DRIZZLE DRAGONITE. SHADOW TAG TERAKKION. NATURAL CURE ARCHEOPS. Seriously this looks like a ****ing blast.

    I'm glad you like it I'm thinking that we might want to restrict some pokemon though, like Drizzle Dragonite and Shadow Tag Terrakion and Toxic Heal / Facade Ho-oh

    Also I'm worried about getting the older gen Pokemon since back in the day I was being dumb and sold all my Pokemon games. How would I go about getting them.

    Haha guys sorry for my inactivity. Had an overnight trip in China to Chengde for 3 days and 2 nights.

    Now, to go on topic.

    WELCOME ZARDIAN EVEN THOUGH UR NOT IN SKY SECTORRR! Hope you have fun here :3 (we're awesome btw)
    And in the Competitive RMT section, theres a perfect thread called: "A Guide to EVS, IVS, And Natures." Its stickified, meaning that its one of the VERY top few threads and has a dark green background.

    Looks really fun! didnt read the rules on the link since I was distracted by the dancing Trapinch lol


    Welcome Zardian! We can help you understand such competitive concepts because in truth, they are pretty complicated and it took me about two years to figure them out on my own on the forums.

    @Gamma: Me too. My friends would rage when they lose, and they'd rage even more when I didn't rage when I lost because they'd expect some vengeful satisfaction by seeing my demise. Back in the day, it was fun to have a team that covered type disadvantages (Gold Team: Typhlosion, Skarmory (from friend's Silver), Jolteon, Scyther, Gengar, and Dragonite) and some friends were mature about me winning, some not so mature. Looking at the maturity level of kids these days, and I'm talking about classy New England and the riches of Maryland, I see Smogon being a way of kids proving to each other why they won and why it was fair. We can discuss the past all we want, but Smogon is necessary for the future players who are like our friends that aren't so mature when losing. :/

    @Justinjxhu: That sounded awesome except for my speculation on your inactivity which is that Chengde has no networks or blocked sites. I've never been to China, but I've visited the Philippines which is hot as balls btw.

    First off, welcome to the guild Zardian! As mentioned before I am a newer member here also, but not new to pokemon. I've been playing these games since Red/Blue version. I actually suspect I'm the oldest guy here (26). I hope you enjoy your time here.

    You might have a battle buddy in me then Zardian. I'm very new to wifi battles (still have never played in one) so I'll spar with ya if I have the time. As for acquiring older generation pokemon: Many of them are found in Heartgold/Soulsilver and Diamond/Pearl/Platinum. However, you can also either trade with others (I have all of the Kanto starters for trade) or get the gameboy advance games and transfer from them with an older DS.

    On a side note: I decided yesterday to go back to my roots and started a new game in Red version. The plan is to play through all of the main games. I'm in Viridian Forest at the moment. My team: Bulbasaur, Pidgey, Mankey.
