What the hell is taking that Majora's Mask 3D remake so long?

If you do everything Smogon tells you to then you become very predictable as other people who use smogon will instantly know your moveset and be able to counter it.

What's your team/move set? While IVs do help in general you should still be able to beat randoms (other than Japanese players)

Not really.

My first team was pretty bad, but I understood the meta enough to compete with it. When I entered the awfulness that was Gen V Standard, I had a better grasp on the game.

I would say that I'm pretty good now.

Sounds about right.

I haven't even played a single match of competitive pokémon yet, but I expect to suck and lose a lot too, at first.

No real set teams yet just trying stuff out. I put together a sandstorm team (tyranitar, alakazam, mega mawile, garchomp, Gliscor Hippowdon) but useless unless I can do 6v6 battles which I haven't had many of.

and what is it about the japs do they cheat? lol cuz they destroy me

I sucked because I play Nintendo rules (which doesn't have tiers, just a banned list) and I use my favorite Pokémon which are dreadful like Ariados lol.

I still try to balance using strong Pokémon and my favs. I'll usually choose a fav or two I like and then try to balance a team around that lol.

So I still kinda suck.

When I just use whatever is strongest I do fine. You pretty much just have to get experience, though. The more you play, the more you know what to expect. And most of the game is just making the best possible choice each turn, which you can make better when you know what all is possible from your opponent.
