I'll keep playing with REAL people, thank you very much.


This. I'm tired of playing with clones and robots.

Personally I think gamefaqs are way worse community then smogon since if they decided up rules instead it would be chaos with no order at all at least smogon tries to balance the meta game which is near impossible to do

We already have the GameFAQs tiering system, thank you very much. No-one likes it because Vanilluxe is top-tier and wrecks everything.

No.

Smogon is a community that attempts to create a balanced single battle metagame. Their rules are independent from Nintendo's, which bans Pokemon based on rarity: that is, Mewtwo, the cover legends, and anything unavailable without events. Smogon bans things based on community votes; things get nominated based on being especially powerful or based on being overcentralizing (i.e. you must use one of the two counters to this or you will lose).

Smogon-rules battles are conducted on an online simulator: anyone who tells you to use Smogon rules ingame is stupid and doesn't understand how Smogon works. So if you play only ingame, Smogon is entirely irrelevant to you.

Good intentions, lazy execution, worse community.

I think that sums them up in a nutshell.
