Hello Gray, it's been quite a while... Listen, I know I wasn't your closest friend here, but I would still like to thank you for all the times you've entertained me and educated me on the simple subject of Pokémon throughout my span of activeness in this humble community. Though my life has become busier and my interest in Pokémon seems to have faded off (for now), I still sit back and remember all the laughs I got to have during some of the more lonelier times of my life. I wanted to write this to someone who I'd assume appreciated this community as much as I once did, and hope for your continuous wellbeing. I'm sorry I never really gave anyone a proper farewell, and one incredibly late message will certainly not make amends for this, I still feel one of the few people who could still make me smile just a few years back should know I still appreciate his contributions to the community, no matter how cheesy and perhaps even out-of-character this may sound. Goodbye now.

I never said that. You guys were all friends to me. The pros of staying in this community were greatly outweighed by the cons, that is all. I saw Gray-Zone as the hope to change this community into something less shítty, but after seeing that it wasn't going to be the case it solidified my decision to leave this crumbling place. Take it as you may, it really doesn't bother me either way.

Yeah, you can cut the sentimental crap and pride-taunting büllshit, because that isn't going to bring me back. I would've left this collapsing community long ago if it weren't for you guys making the time wasted worthwhile. I even thought you guys would reignite the community, but I knew it was not going to be the case after that event. I don't give a fück about the bet. I would've gone through with it if shît started getting real and have fun with it. Instead, you acted like a bigshot with those results. You can say that I quit because there was no drama, I don't give a fück. What else am I supposed to get out of this community for entertainment? Witty, funny comments? Have you even seen general chat or comments on this site? By then I knew that this community is just continue going to shit, and I'm not staying around for that. If it's a formal goodbye you want from me, then here it is: goodbye, and enjoy your deteriorating community.

Okay, the reversal strat is good, but that's a real gimmicky set and item. -- Yeah, you give them a turn by switching, but then you have the matchup in your favor because you'll likely send in a counter, and the opponent is forced to use a pokemon that gets countered by one of your pokes, which is huge in a 3v3. That gives you both a free turn (because the opponent will switch) + you have an answer to one of their pokemon + two more slots, while the opponent has to use one less slot remaining to send the next Pokemon. Momentum is completely in favor of the side that switches.

Okay, I see what kind of items it is. I don't see anyone using that effectively though tbh, unless used with mirror coat, counter, or metal burst on a fresh switch. Bulky slow pokemon lose ALL countering capabilities and bluk and fast and frail pokemon can counter only ONCE, and then the opponent will switch out and you're left with something that dies to stealth rocks if switched out. -- Yeah, I think it's cool if it were like that: Choose between all Ancillary or none Ancillary. I could definitely use something like that to stop myself from bringing VGC pokemon to an OU match like a complete retard. -- Skill Link Gren is interesting since ninjas are skilled and it can finally make water shuriken viable (75BP STAB priority is pretty boss). Though I don't think it's enough to warrant a physical Gren if it doesn't have gunk shot or low kick. LOL nobody will use a 150 physical non-STAB recoil move on Alakazam anyway, so no big deal. I don't see the point of this 'mulligan' business, since if you think about it for a second who WOULDN'T switch? You basically send out anything (smart choice to bring a dark resist for pursuit), switch out, and you just scouted one pokemon for free. Of course, most smart battlers would switch out as well, so it essentially becomes a match that starts turn 2. The only time you wouldn't switch is if one of your pokemon wreck the entire opposing team, in which case the opponent is probably going to lose anyway. Veto singles is a cool concept if both sides make their choices at the same time.

Hmm, I like that effect. It can either set up for a very late game sweep when everything is in range, or as an opener to punch holes in the opponent's team.------ Not sure if I understood that correctly. So it's essentially a 100% focus band that blocks passive damage as well? Won't that still cause the endless battle clause we talked about? ---- I think it's better if you can only switch one pokemon to its Ancillary set (similar to mega evolutions in the games. One per team). Otherwise it's just going to be about counter-teaming and nothing else, and I feel like there's more strategy and thought involved if you're allowed to make only one change to your team during team preview. It also makes you think about which set to make the Ancillary set for each pokemon since 5 of them have to use their normal sets. As it is right now, it's essentially bring 12, choose 6, which isn't really appealing imo. It's also making me suspicious about Greninja breaking the game, considering it got an offensive boost, ability boost, and now this essentially negates its 4MSS.
