Hi there!
I created an account today since I have recently gotten into Pokemon competitive play, and I'm hoping that more experienced players could help me out. I was going to compete in Gamerbase 2010 but I had struggles with getting there, since I was 12 at the time and transport was an issue. Anyways, my first tourney was VGC 2012, where I did HORRIBLE since I was clueless about competition in Pokemon (in GB'10 I was gonna use a Piplup. A Piplup.), I thought it'd be cool to teach Chansey Shadow Ball as its only damaging move, which cost me the match in round 2, and due to the swiss format- the tournament. But yeah, I've been doing research into competitive play since then and I have high hopes for VGC 13 which should be right around the corner, and I've done training so i should be posting an RMT sometime. This is the first forum I'm committing myself to, since it's closer to home.
Thanks for letting me waste your time, guys!

Hey Toquill, welcome to PokemonWorld. I'm not very good at competitive battling either see my sig for my very bad battle record :P

Have a look around the forums and get yourself acquainted with the site. A staff member should come along soon with most details as I forget them :)

Chat is the best way to get to know us. It usually gets busy around 7PM

Hope you enjoy it here

Thanks! And I don't think I would have saw you unless there was something, uh, distinctive(?) about you. :)

It's funny, round 1 I battled an Anti-Trick Room team, round 2 I lost to a trick room team!

What was the round 2 team/ person like? I have no recollection of that battle so there's a chance it could have been me.

I can't really remember, I know he had a Chandelure and I think a Conkeldurr... Do you remember much of your team?

Yeah, I didn't use either of those, though I used them both in VGC11 where I got Top 8

Brilliant! Yeah it couldn't have been you then 'cause there was definitely a Chandelure. I guess Trick Room was common!
