Cool read. I'm just starting to get into VGC gameplay, so I've been breeding Pokemon to play. Just yesterday I RNG bred a shiny Ralts (Gallade), Druddigon, Roggenrola, and Foongus with near perfect IVs and terrible speed. I'm going to try a Trick Room team, but we'll see.
I hate using Legendaries, so I see myself struggling against those who pack them.

All the Italian did was spam Spore every time Amoonguss was out.
WTF is wrong with Nintendo? How can they find that fair?
Sorry, I just feel really bad for the guy because I've been Spored spam and I know how he feels.
You shouldn't fell bad for Ryosuke because that was his own fault. If he didn't want to get Spored maybe he shouldn't have set up the Trick Room that let Arash's Amoonguss do that.
I could resume it in the sleep clause on VGC is ridiculous and he used a lot of words while pretty much not once talking about spore spam LOL
This is due to a difference in perspective between VGC players who don't play with Sleep Clause and people who play more Smogon like metagames that do have a Sleep Clause. Sleep isn't considered cheap in VGC. There are many ways to deal with it and teams are designed to fight against it. In VGC, it's your own responsibility to not get yourself locked down by Spore. Ryosuke failed to do that so he got shut down like he deserved. Arash was just making normal plays so there's not much to say about Arash's end of those turns.
