About this site
The competitive Pokemon battling scene is really just that: competitive. By definition, the metagame is about winning with the most promising strategies. However, there’s undeniably a “fun” aspect to it – it’s what personally keeps me laddering with successful teams, gimmicky teams, and stupidly laughable teams alike. This blog is basically a place for me to ramble about the more fun and interesting aspects of competitive Pokemon gameplay.
I go by CyclicCompound on smogon.com, and that’s where I spend the vast majority of my time as a contributor. There, I’m a member of the OU Quality Control Team, and a mentor for the OU, RU, and C&C areas of the site. Although my primary tiers are OU and RU, I’ve dabbled in Balanced Hackmons, Hackmons, Ubers, and Randbats.
