There is now a chat room for the noob clan! Go to the Pokecommunity server on PO (manse.us) and click on the Noob Clan channel.

Welcome new players to the one and only Noob Clan. Here at the noob clan we wish nothing but to take in all players who are new to competative battling, and in time, turn them into seasoned veterens. If this sounds fun to you, then please continue reading!

Joining the Clan

Our clan is very much built for the new players, and therefore I do not ask for any sort of formal trial. I will ask for a battle (though it is not required) just so that I can place your skill level and team building (yes these things can be VERY differant.)
If you wish to join I will need to know the folowing pieces of information.

Pokemon Online username:
Timezone:
Typical times of activity:

WHAT'S POKEMON ONLINE?
http://www.pokemon-online.eu/
Read up and download it! It is very useful for teambuilding and also very useful in battling outside of wi-fi.

Why should I join a Clan?

I remember my first dip into competative Pokemon. It was overwhelming that what was once a simple matter of "Should I put Thunder on Luxray?" soon became a matter of "What EV's and moveset should I give a Special Sweeper set for Luxray?" This can be overwhelming and send you off saying "I don't care enough." Here at the clan people can learn off of some of the other players mistakes (as well as ask for advice from some of our experianced players) and find things that help all players in the clan become better players. Also one of the biggest annoyances in the Battle Stadium is the typical "Testing a Team" or "Wanna Battle?" thread that is ultimitely deleated and sent to the Quick Battle thread. (That thread is dead btw...) Here at the clan you will be able to find players who are near your level (as battling newer players can help make you better) and ultimitely make things easy to adjust. (Clan wars are also fun.)

Rankings

Head of Activity - Cartercr

Recruitment Squad - Cartercr

Team Building Support
Cartercr (Gen 4 LC, Gen 4 OU, Gen 4 UU, Gen 5 Wi-Fi, Gen 5 LC, Sandstorm for any Metagame)
The Final Watchman (Gen 5 Wi-Fi)

Custom Set Help - Cartercr

These are our highest ranking jobs. I will (until I see any reason to change) be the Head of Activity for the clan, that is to say the person deciding upon tournaments and clan wars and the like. The Recruitment squad will be formed with players who have reached a master rank and these people will be in charge of going out and finding new players and bringing them in to join. The Team Building Support will be made of those who have successfully built a team which ranks high enough that I deem adaquet (I have not decided a ranking yet.) Custom Set Help will be the group of individuals who have gone above and beyond team building and have begun forming customized sets (which actually work.) All players who are in these higher ranks are able to be counted on for adivce on their particular subject. I will also take into consideration all ideas for tournaments and other events.

Rules

- Follow all rules of the forum. Rules are our friends, we should read them and follow them.
- Standard Clauses will be used on all matches unless otherwise stated. If you are not familiar with the standard clauses then please PM me and I will explain them.
- I ask that people who sign up please read the rules, to signify this I ask that you place in your post somewhere "I have read the rules and I will follow them to the best of my ability."
- I ask that each player make at least one comment per week. You will be inactive for a longer amount of time then please PM me. If you do post each week, I will remove your name from the list of players.
Clan Members

Cartercr, Toasty.Toast, Atley (Vyse), fifaking (Andrew), The Final Watchman, Dr4g0n12, Gamefan1

Current Events

Generation 5 Wi-Fi Metagame help.

I will post in large bold letters our current event at the top of the OP, but any past events will also have links down here and you will be able to find things such as tournament pairings down here.

This is a cool idea for a clan! I'll be sure to direct anyone actively interested but new-ish in competitive battling here. ;D

Thanks, I thought this really sounded like what clans should be about, and with Black and White releasing in 4 days, I think we'll be swamped :D

Definatly an awesome idea, but I dont have regular access to a computer to use pokemon online (I am using an Android tablet to write this) Is there any way I can be involved and have a crazy computer schedule? Because I really need to learn to get better.

Is this geared solely towards Pokemon Online, or will new players who wish to play cartridge games be allowed to join as well once BW is released?

Well my fear in wi-fi is that the game is dead. There just will not be enough players in wi-fi. Once B/W releases I will quite possibly attempt a wi-fi section, as there will be enough people active.

That's kind of a downer to hear. I really feel cartridge play is where the game is best experienced. Just like other RPG games, a big part of it is the grinding. It seems like there has got to be a market for wi-fi team/clan leagues and competitions. I'll have to look into that further.

Well, it is not a definite no, I will look into the wi-fi battling as I agree that it is best to play there, but the majority of activity is on PO. Once the games are actually in circulation and the place becomes more active I will make a decision as to if I wish there to be a wi-fi section (as an increase in gen 5 play will bring about an increase in gen 4.)

Alright, we also do need some experianced players though to help with some of the newer ones.

I would also like to add that I will be having a wi-fi section on here. The same system will apply as with PO with the exception, of course, being that I need your friend code.

Added, please be in contact in order to schedule a test battle.

NEW EVENT

We have several new players and so I think it is time to begin having events. Our new event will be Generation 5 Wi-Fi Metagame help. This event will focus on team building and strategy to prepare for a small tournament that will happen within our clan. I will only accept the top 4 players into the tournament, so that means that, under our current conditions, two players will not be competing. This will be focusing on Pokemon Online, as I see no possible way that people would have a Wi-Fi team ready on the actual cartridge games. (Unless you have even less of a life than me.) Team Help will be available until the date of the tournament (each player will be online at the time of the tournament to prevent no-shows. With that, our tournament will be in 2 weeks, so please contact either myself or The Final Watchman if you need team help.

Just to remind everyone, the gen 5 tournament will be in only a week. If you are still active in the clan, I ask that you would please post, otherwise I will be removing your name from the clan. (This is the disadvantage of working with new players, they sometimes sign up and then go AWOL)
