Hi, I'm Dave, and I hate (some) Smogonites. I recall that this happened to other people, but anyway: I was battling online the other day. "WASHINGTON challenged you to a battle!" Sure, why not? "Use Game Chat?" Sure, why not? Before we start, he tells me VGC rules. I gladly accept these conditions. I lead with my Minimize Starmie, he leads with Gliscor. Minimize. The dude starts raging at me because he "made it clear that we were using VGC rules!" After five minutes of arguing, I tell him to look up the VGC rules. "Oh wow, 'kid', you're so bad." DC. Ironic, fits his name too well. Lesson learned: Don't battle Smogonites, who don't believe in simple counters, but instead believe sets are built strictly to wall your team. My (Special) Swampert has destroyed teams before. GOOD teams. So, Smogon worshippers, tell whoever got drunk the night Swampert was misplaced in whatever "tier" (that doesn't actually exist) it's in to put it in "Ubers" because none of these Smogon teams mine destroyed considered a Grass move, so it's automatically broken.
"Pokemon is 45% team, 5% skill, 50% luck. Deal with it or stop playing." -ss4gogeta_dark. I'm looking at you, Smogon. -.- FC: 0130 - 1909 - 1118
