Okay, so I've decided to give competitive battling a shot.
However-- I know very little about it.
I've read articles and guides but none of it makes much sense, so I figured the easiest way to learn is to go out and just do it.

So the reason for this thread is I wanted to ask if someone could give me some tips and suggest a starter team just until I get the hang of things.
And maybe, just mayybee, a battle a little later. ^ - ^

Love,

I'd be more than happy to help you out Porygon ^_^

First I have one question lol

Are you going to be playing through Wi-Fi, Pokemon Online, or Pokemon Showdown?

Ok that makes things really easy then...faster as well ^_^

So you know the main basics of competitive battling right? How there are seperate tiers, EV's are extremely important and all that fun stuff?

Yes. Smile
However, I'm not entirely sure what tiers involve what pokemon and how to make the most of using EV's. ^ . ^

Ok well Tier lists can be found Smogon and PO's official websites so that is the easy part.

You may use any Pokemon from a lower tier in a higher tier but not the other way around.

EV's are the most important part of competitive battling because they effect everything about a Pokemon making it be faster, deal more damage, and take more damage as well.

Oh okay, I didn't know about the tiers, but I knew the EV's part.
So you'd allocate EV's depending on what type of set you're trying to run?

@Vursz I'd love your help.
I could use all the advice I can get. Tongue
