I want to get back into the Pokemon 'metagame'.

#1raymanfan1Posted 1/12/2013 9:32:05 PM(edited)
I'm not sure I actually am using the term metagame in the right sense here, it means 'part of the game that is deeper than what the game outright teaches you, often involving competitive multiplayer', right?

But anyway, I remember 'EV training' a team of 'pseudo-legendaries' on SoulSilver with a whole bunch of protiens etc., but that team is gone now and I can't remember much about Pokemon except 'beat E4 with starter, screw around with the rest of the game's features for another 50 hours'.
Can someone link me to something that will teach me the metagame all over again from the beggining?

There's no premier place to go all around, but:

Smogon is a great place for competitive battling with plenty of movesets.

Serebii also has some mechanic stuff that are useful

Do you mean in the games, Wi-Fi, or battle simulators?

I just mean making the best f***ing team possible at level 100.
I think i remember what I was training. A shiny Charizard just for show, a Slaking, and these:

If you're going for competitive, do not use Charizard. 4x Stealth rock is not fun.

True but it was proved time and time again that there is no really best team in pokemon and anything can be defeated with some proper strategy. Heck when Genesect was in Ou the last time I really played ladder I don't think I lost to any rain team using a semi sandstorm team centered in rock polish genesect
