Though officially established December 18th, 2004 by the site owner, chaos, the history of our organization stretches back many years. Some members have been part of the online competitive Pokémon scene since 1999, originating from websites such as GameFAQs, Azure Heights, RPGamer, Pojo, and The PokeMasters. Top battlers from these websites held a number of tournaments, hosted on the original "Pokémon Battle Simulator," a web based sim written by Blizzard for the RBY Pokémon games. Other battle simulators were made, more strategies were developed, and a close knit community began to form around the game. This community needed a unifying presence on the Internet, a definitive home. And thus, Smogon began.

So, technically we already created our own meta, it's just that nobody realized it until now...?

Does any of ye remember the specific point GameFAQs turned into a joke forum then? I mean it's been one the whole time I've used it, but it seems like it used to 'ave a higher reputation in the past.

I created my gamefaqs account 12 years ago so I could play GSC. Back in the day we played through mIRC, it was all text based hosted by Fanha and 90% of the players were originated from gamefaqs. And let me tell you the old gamefaqs from 12 years ago were just full of elitists, trolls, and ragers like this one. Most of the oldies already left/quit pokemon although sometimes I saw some old faces once in a while

Nevermind then, I guess what I heard just be' veterans wrongly reminiscing about the "good old days".
