rushing, ad infinitum
Welcome back, Nate! I'm glad to hear that you're in competitive battling because, I, myself am a competitive battler (moreso in the past now) and we have a fine competitive section known as the Battle Center that would love to have a newer competitively inclined member like you! We also have a spectacularly fun Pokemon Showdown server that a good handful of users use frequently and it would be great if you found time to hang out on there sometimes! [:
Ever need anything else, just VM (like you already have, actually!) and I'll help out the best I can.
