    Hello, I am Kajashi, and I am a 19 year old from New York. If I had to pick a favorite Pokemon, it would probably have to be Gardevior, but that's like asking me to pick my favorite kind of dessert. I have been playing Pokemon since FireRed and started getting into VGC in 2014, but only became heavily involved this season. I hope that maybe I'll even be able to go to an IRL event soon.
    Aside from Pokemon, I love to play ultimate frisbee and do math stuff, especially teaching others how to do said math stuff.

    Hey I'm Trent from Hawaii. Played competitive OU since diamond/pearl off and on but recently made the jump to vgc due to it seeming to have a bigger base to actually play matches (on cart not showdown). Played pokemon since its release on Gameboy and will probably continue to play each one till I'm dead.

    Abdul, from Toronto, Ontario! Haha, I've been playing VGC since late 2014 and really got into it during the 2015 season. Been playing Pokemon since Gen 3 days, though I find myself not having alot of time with me currently being a CS student. Usually, either programming or playing pokemon in my spare time.

    Hi everyone! My name is Tiffiny and I am a high school student from New York. I've always loved Pokemon since I was a kid, but only discovered the competitive side around the time of VGC'15 Worlds. I was on and off in VGC'16 cause...yea...but this year I am super into the rule set and am trying to be more active. I haven't attended any events yet mostly because of family and travel limitations (parents don't support me "wasting" my time on games and I pretty much have to rely on public transport to get to events, of which the ones in NY still would take me well over 3 hours to get to). Also, I have zero confidence as I suck and want to at least be decent before I compete in an actual tournament.

    Aside from Pokemon, I am aiming to become a med or psychology student and like to draw and indulge myself in manga and anime. I started a Pokemon art project a year ago where I try to draw all the Pokemon together in the form of the logo, but procrastination always gets the better of me.

    Anyways, my main goal is to make friends and have fun while playing competitively so I'm always up for a chat!

    Hi, Danial from Singapore. I stopped playing Pokemon in 2002 (Alpha Sapphire), and only picked it up again with XY in 2015. Post-game, started watching VGC and surfing NB and Smogon forums, and only recently started playing VGC with the 2017 format. Hoping to test myself at the upcoming Feb IC:)

    Hi, I'm Matt and I made a Trainer Tower account for the eSports club at my university. I'm mainly a singles player, but I decided to give VGC a shot starting at '16.

    Hey guys! My name is drew aka MrTalent. I love VGC and its basically my youtube channels passion. Found this website looking for some good usage data to see what the "meta" is and figured i'd join the party. Creating VGC 2017 content is my passion on twitch and youtube so i hope to get involved in this website a bit. Plenty of great resources here. I may even look to compete in actual tournaments besides locals one day. Nice to meet all of you :)

    Hello, I'm LasermanZ1. I've been into VGC since late 2014 still hoping to go an actual event one day. You might have seen me on NuggetBridge or Pokemon Showdown under the same name. I would have come here a lot sooner, but circumstances out of my control kept me from the Pokemon community for a few months. Unfortunately as a result, I'm extremely out of practice, and I have no idea what the meta is like. Here's hoping I can get back in shape. This website will definitely help with that.

    I suppose I should introduce myself to this new community I've found.

    I'm Blink, a pleasure to meet you.

    I'm 14, and I've been interested in Pokemon since I was eight, with my 6th anniversary with the game coming soon. My first game was Pokemon Black, which was a great introduction as personally Gen 5 is my favorite generation of the games. I got into VGC shortly after picking up the game, and entered into the 2011 St. Louis Regionals as a Junior, and somehow taking 4th place with my story team.
    I've been trying to get back into VGC, as VGC'16 caused me to call it quits. Seeing as how Nugget Bridge appears to be dead (rip) I decided I'd go ahead and check out this site, and so far I love it. Content on here is super easy to understand.
    I'm looking forward to playing more this season, as the format looks very interesting and can allow for some oddball teams to really take the cake.
    Besides Pokemon, I've also enjoyed Minecraft for a long time, and I enjoy Team Fortress 2 and Civilization. I'm also an avid PC enthusiast and I love to learn about and build PCs. (My PC Build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/DWprtJ)

    Hopefully, I didn't bore you with my essay of an introduction post.

    TL;DR: I'm new

    Hello! I'm Dan from Manchester, UK. I have played vgc on and off since it's beginnings in this country and whilst I have competed at many levels, I have no major achievements to boast.

    I continue to love playing Pokémon, having played every main series game and most peripherals since 1999. I have no goals other than to play competitively as long as the competitive scene lasts.

    Massively into spectating the game, follow several mainstream youtubers, watch live streams of official competitions and attend events whenever life allows.

    Hey everyone, I'm a Smogon DOU player who's name is Steven, but I generally just go by para. I don't really play a ton of vgc, but I have a grasp on playing doubles formats in general, and I passively follow the meta through this sites articles. I'm rly interested in picking up/learning this format though so if any one ever sees me on showdown feel free to challenge me :)
