What rating is "good" on Showdown?

#1richisdisturbedPosted 4/5/2014 8:14:54 AM
So what would be a good rating on Showdown actually be?

I've only recently started using it, & have rarely even visited the Smogon site. I just got to the 1300s after 10-15 battles, & saw the top 500 start at 1650.

What's classed as good/average/bad using Showdown?

1000-1300: casual valley
1300-1500: bad
1500-1700: mix of average players and somewhat decent players
1700+: where you start to run into actual good players

Explain why it dips down from 1300 to 1500?

Starts to get harder by the time you get to around 1800 or so. Most I've got to was 1820 something. Could barely reach 1800 after, haven't played showdown since XY though.

A good rating would be 1850

1700+ is where it gets harder. A fair amount of copy/paste teams, and people competent enough to use them.
1800+ is where people start to break the mold. You can use one or two "bad" Pokemon and totally rock with it (I miss my BP Venomoth sometimes)
1900+ is where the real battles are. This is my max, so I don't know what the 2k+ is like.

Assuming PS still goes that high, I haven't battled on there in a while.

Not exactly, 1500+ means way above average players.

Even in 1600s you'll only get good players. Anyone below 1400 can be taken lightly, but you never know. If you see someone 1550+ , then you should take him seriously.
