Hello friends :)

Post by Stix on Mon Jul 06, 2015 9:17 pm

I've been watching the Wifi battles on Silver League's YouTube for some time now. I was just wondering how difficult it is to actually get started with competitive battling? I know that's probably a loaded question :c.

Also, is Silver League still playing X/Y? Or have you moved on to OR/AS?

I believe most of the gyms have an XY team and an ORAS team for that reason.
As far as getting started competitively goes, there's some information you'd need to learn first (such as tier lists,) and any additional rules that the Silver League employs.
SL rules; http://www.thesilverleague.com/rules-and-rankings.php
Standard Tier list(s); Uber <-  BL <- OU <- BL2<- UU <- (and then there's PU, BL3, & BL4 when they're not being part of NU for whatever reason).

If you make any teams feel free to post them here for critiques.

Sweet! Is it common to have tier list specific battles? A lot of the Pokemon that I find interesting are in the RU and NU tier unfortunately :c.

Hello Stix and welcome to the forum. I don't know a thing about competitive but i can tell you that there's usually at least on person on the ChatBox (at the bottom of the home page) who battles competitively. Other than that, enjoy your time here and good luck on your journey into competetive!

Welp, sad news. It looks like it'll be a long time before I am able to contribute to the community in any way, shape, or form. It appears that my 3DS was misplaced during my move from NC to WA. So I'll have to wait until next week, when I get paid, to get a new one. Luckily, I had not discovered my desire to start trying to breed my own Pokemon for competition yet.

This feels like a good time for this question: Should I upgrade to ORAS or go with X/Y again?

I suggest ORAS since there are more Pokemon you can get without the need of trading from other people.

Again, I'm clueless about competitive but I'd say go with ORAS since eventually most competitive stuff might end up fully switching over. Also, with the post game island, the stuff for breeding is all in the same area. Hope this helps and sorry to hear about the misplacing of your 3DS.

Thanks folks Smile. In the meanwhile, I'll be adding on to the fanfiction I posted early. Something to occupy my time Smile.

I wasn't sure whether it was okay to comment on your fan fiction thread so just in case, I'm saying it here. It's amazing Very Happy . I like the idea of the journal and it's well executed with some of the writing crossed out. I'm really looking forward to further entries!

I'm glad you enjoy it Smile. I spent a lot of my time today putting together a plot line (off work not much to do haha). I think if I don't rush things it'll turn out pretty well. I have a habit of coming up with an ending before I work out the rest of the story, so hopefully I don't get too impatient Smile.

edit: feel free to comment! I'll try to post something new every few days or so.

You can get any 2 GB SD card for the 3DS. Just format it first and it should work.

I went back to the place I bought it from and they just gave me one Smile.

I started up my game yesterday so I'll just be playing through the game for a bit. After I beat it, I'll start working on getting what I need for breeding.
