    I'm Tommy AKA AbruptFury :D I'm 22 year old Youngster Joey who has been playing Pokemon since 2001, where I started with Pokemon Special Yellow Edition. Took me til Pokemon Emerald to beat my first game cuz I couldn't fathom why they would start me out against Brock with a Pikachu. Hmmm....Shoulda aimed for the horn. I've truly come a long way since. (Not really)

    I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. I've only been playing competitive Pokemon since 2012/13, but picked up VGC at the end of 2014. After the hype at Worlds. Looking to learn more about the Pokemon VGC circuit and hopefully become a champion someday. I look to learn a lot from this site and you peeps. And maybe you'll learn something from me too. oo.

    I'm Andrew and I am based in Melbourne. I misplay VGC, but have fun doing so. I've been involved in VGC for the past couple of years. I tend to go into tournaments with unconventional teams and sets, and have miraculously managed to win a few CP in the process.

    Hi everyone! I'm John, an accountant from the Philippines. I was originally a pure-breeder, but because of VGC, I get to enjoy battling a lot more! I started playing back in VGC15 but unfortunately lost my cart and when VGC16 came, I just didn't like the format so I just focused on Monster Hunter. I just started playing Pokemon again this January and I'm having a blast so far. I'm just starting to get used to VGC17 tho'.

    Hi!
    I'm Fatih also known as @MatriVGC , a little bit i guess. I am a kinda new player from germany. This season is my 2nd season in VGC. Before VGC i played singles OU for fun. I like to watch Anime too, any kind of Anime and play Shadowverse (seriously more than Pokemon lol) nice to meet u! Hit me up if you need some teams, but i prefer to play standard teams than gimmicky or meme teams. If you need meme teams just hit the dutch people up, because they are memes! :^]

    Alola! I'm Andrew. I've been playing Pokémon since Gen 4, and I've been following VGC since early ORAS. I started attending as many tournaments as I could in late 2015. I have yet to win anything, but I'm hoping to start participating more and to start making a name for myself now that I can drive myself!

    I'm a young, fractious Pole who loves to have a good battle from time to time. I don't take competetive pokémon very seriously. It's just one of my hobbies. I'm not persevere live events player. I don't have enough money to compensate for my geographical location. My competetive awareness started at the end of 2011. More on that can be found on my private blog: http://tadei.hatenablog.com . I never been much of a forums contributer. I just find it hard to have properly direct discussions. Made an account here because I lost trust in NB passwordkeeping. My current goal with pokemon is to become a TO and create a proper VGC scene in my homeland. And as far as competing goes I'm probably going to be in Malmö Regionals just for fun and to get a break from biology and chemistry studying. I want to became a forester. I'm also foreign language enthusiasts. I know 5 languages to a communicative and want to start studying japanese on my own. I also love looking for rare birds and fungus species. In all honesty I like didactive aspects of school more than the social ones. That may sound like I don't like people, well I do but I'm very selective about it. With that being said I'm happy to give help with VGC to anyone. I'm certainly not a pro player, but I know some stuff. Also I'm looking for strong sparring partners. Feel free to hit me up with PM anywhere you find my trail ;).

    Some of you know me from NuggetBridge (RIP). I'm a non-player PokeMom who tries to keep up with the tournament season structure, and help people figure it out, especially the parts that keep changing (CP, kickers, etc). I also answer to Gwen's Mom, if you see me at a tournament, but my real name is Irene. I'm also an architect IRL in Illinois. I'm happy to see new VGC forums after the demise of NB, and hope there can be productive conversations with a combination of experienced and new players.

    Hey guys, I'm Travis. I go by the screennames Paradiddled and threemeeps. I'm 24 and I've been playing Pokémon since I borrowed my friend's blue version when I was a kid (didn't get my own copy until G/S came out). I played super casually until gen 4 when I got bored of the RPG aspect of the games. I discovered Smogon and went by Trav7x (l0l) for a while. In gen 5 I had some high OU ladder placements with DragMag teams and a wonky Genesect/Slowbro/Moltres/Tangrowth defensive core before Genesect got sent to Uber. I didn't know anything about VGC until 2014 after X/Y came out. I'm hoping to compete a bit this year, but not sure if I'll be able to due funds. At the very least I'll play Battle Spot and meme around on here with you guys! :D

    Hi Friends!

    My name is Amilia, and i'm a loooong time Pokemon fan who jumped at the opportunity to partake in VGC! I was actually inspired to play by watching a stream of Diana Bros winning at last year's St.Louis regionals. Despite the fact it was her first time there, she beat out a bunch of veteran players and became the regional champion!

    I started late into the 2016 season and had my first taste of Regionals in Orlando, and faced off against the newly crowned champion Wolfe Glick as my very first opponent--It was awesome!

    Being able to attend a Regional Event made me even more determined to want to improve my skills and continue to grow in the community, so starting fresh in the new format is perfect for just that!

    ANYWAY! I'm always down to make new friends and have practice battles with ya'll! :)

    Hey everyone. My name is Max, and I'm pretty new to VGC. I started playing Pokemon when I was five-ish after my dad found a GBA in a Ruby Tuesday. I've been following VGC since BW, but this is the first season that I've actually forced myself to ladder and stuff. So far it's been pretty fun. I'm hoping to (maybe possibly) attend Virginia Regionals and some local PCs this year.

    Hello, my name is Malik also know as Metal.

    I've been a fan of the Pokemon games since GSC and been following VGC since 2015 only to dabble into gameplay during the 2016 season. Currently, I've been on and off playing this season due to college but I still want to participate in playing the game and one day, go to an event to test my skills.

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Raqib and I have been working in the video games industry for over 3 years now. I received my start in broadcasting X and Y when VGC 2014 was really young, then moved into PR / Marketing / Production when the opportunities arose. I took a 2 year hiatus from competitive battling, but now I have a bit more time to get back into it. Looking forward to seeing where this community goes!

    Hi, folks! My gaming alias is Charbon. I am a player who just got into the VGC format. I was introduced to Pokemon back in Gen 2 with Pokemon Crystal and became hooked on the franchise since. I used to play competitively in singles during generation 3 and 4 (think Shoddy Battle was the simulator of choice back then). I played generations 5 and 6 pretty casually, but I finally decided to dive back into competitive play with generation 7. I sometimes mess around in BSS, but most of my playtime is decided to VGC stuff.

    My schedule is pretty much all over the place, but I'm hoping to squeeze in some time for teambuilding, practice, competitions, and all that jazz. I'd like to do some local PC/MSS events and perhaps a regional. My goal is to improve my VGC battling skills and meet some like-minded people here!
