What I do is plan out my pokémon how I think would make them good(not really competitive, but battling with friends and PWT) then I check what smogon has to say about that pokémon. Once I made my Galvantula EXACTLY like Smogon had it(except for one move) before I even looked lol.

I don't really like competitive though, because everyone hacks their pokémon to be perfect, and if it's not perfect, then it's inferior. And I find that stupid and it takes the fun out of the game, and is the reason I really hope that Gamefreak makes it where you can't use a pokémon that I hacked in the slightest bit.

I don't. It is cute, but all it is is just a special tank.
Piondrachi is better.

Reference. Smogon has good starting points for Pokemon ideas but I usually end up drastically altering them. its also good to know what to expect from my competition. Example, someone has a hippowdon, it probably has roar. So I can prepare for that.

I use Smogon for ideas for movesets, as I'm so uncreative with teams. I decided to create a Swagger/Foul Play Skuntank once, but I find that it's one of my inferior Pokémon.

I used to use smogon on the pokemon b/w trade boards.I bred and bred pokemon to be shiny or have good IVs/Natures.Than I leveled up and ev'd them while giving movesets listed on smogon.Then I did giveaways.

I honestly dont need smogon(yet) for competitive.
