Does anyone else think that competitive pokemon is no longer underground?

With the rise of gaming on Youtube and Pokemon XY worldwide release, competitive Pokemon videos gained quite an exposure. I remember back in the days in 2012 the comp. Pokemon videos would be lucky enough to get 50,000 views max. If we go even further back, like 2010, it had a really small following. Now you see videos of competitive battling get around 100,000 views. It's crazy how much competitive pokemon community is expanding.

I was once moderated for Off-Topic posting after making a thread discussing VGC14 on the Pokemon X board...

It'e because of Verlisify's Wolfpack, The banhappiness of Smogon, and popular Pokemon guys using OU rules like shofu, and The Goomy.

VGC is still kinda underground. I wish it got more exposure but most casuals prefer trolling Smogon than actually getting into a good format
