    I guess I should actually introduce myself properly instead of being a diglett like I always am.

    Hey all, I'm Ed from Adelaide, Australia. I've been playing Pokémon since I got Red on my yellow brick Game Boy back in the late 90s. I've played competitively since 2013, but only really got into the scene with VGC14. With Adelaide being Adelaide, there was a lack of centralisation of the player base here so I founded PokéAdelaide in 2014 with a few mates to promote and engage the local community. This hasn't helped us garner support from TPCi though, but that's a story for another time.

    Yo! Owen from Liverpool, England here. Been playing Pokémon since RBY, but only got in to VGC last year when I found out Nationals was happening down the road from me. To be honest, I'm not a great player - but I'm trying to improve and recently started my own little Road to Ranked series in an attempt to get better.

    Eh, howzit! I'm Keola Nakamoto, and I'm living in Hawaiʻi! Kinda scrubbish, and I'm also trying to grow our small scene on the islands. Oh yeah, Leonard's Bakery has the best malasadas ever, and I can take a bus there from my apartment. :p #TooMuchWater

    Hey everybody!

    My real name is Zach but I usually go by Zesty (favourite word and I think it describes me well) online. Born in the states but I've been living on the beautiful Central Coast of Australia since 2006.

    New to the VGC and haven't played Pokémon since Gold/Silver.

    I've been lurking on r/stunfisk since SuMo released and I decided I wanted to get into competitive. I've been reading almost every thread and article on there to get my head around everything.

    Finally started testing on Pokémon Showdown the past week or so with mixed results.

    I'm hoping to get some advice when I can make a write up of my team and keen to get a good team I can use for cartridge play and bring to some tournaments.

    Cheers.

    Hi! Everyone calls me Amazus, both IRL and online. I've been playing Pokemon since the day I was born. If you don't believe me, ask my parents. I've only been playing competitively since mid-2015.

    You might know me from NB where I was pretty active on the trade forums. I went by Antikangaskhan, but people still called me Amazus.

    I can assure you the profile picture is not accurate, maybe. And yes this is a serious account.

    Alex, played OU for a year after abandoning yugioh, but I missed the social aspect. I started playing the day after 2016 worlds lol. Been to a few monstore and next-gen PCs, and the San Jose regional, netting me a total of zero points. Rip.

    Hey, I'm David, and I'm pretty decent at the TCG, which I played competitively 2007-2015. I haven't been able to play as much recently for a variety of reasons and that's been bumming me out, so I'm trying to get into VGC to fulfill my need for competitive Pokémon.

    You'll probably like to know that the first person to get a knockout isn't always the winner.

    I'm feathers and I've been around for way too long. Showdown Room Owner, NB staff in the art/editing/everything else departments, art director for several different non-Pokemon projects, avid traveler, nidokingologist, blah blah blah... long story short I am a very busy human. If you've been to an event you've probably met or seen me. Come say hi!

    I'm Aaron, but I don't really know what to go by on the internet. I don't usually post on forums, but I'm gonna try to use this one because I like this website. I'm pretty bad at this game right now.
