    Thank you. I noticed you mentioned you were taking a leave, which I find greatly sad. I enjoyed reading your perspective on Smogon, it didn't come off as rambling to me since I gained insight. If you ever decide to return, I'll give a response in full.

    Sorry about my mindless rambling but I have a lot to say about smogon and the Pokemon community (not this forum) in general. Also I cut down my reply by a lot because I tend to write a lot over things I have strong feelings about, but didn't want to waste your time.

    You are correct, I dislike Smogon but not because it dismisses so many Pokemon as useless. Unfortunately there are notable gaps in many Pokemon's usefulness indeed due to GameFreak's laziness and unbalanced games, not a fault of Smogon who just goes with the best of them. What I dislike about Smogon is their attitude, they think they're the ultimate authority on what determines a good Pokemon or player. Use a Pokemon that's not that good, and they will likely sneer at you, even though it gives them an advantage, and you know it's not a generally good Pokemon but you try anyways, and they think you suck and that Pokemon sucks and that's that. And a lot of competitive players these days are younger kids who got into it thinking they're the more smarter and better side of Pokemon fans like they're Bobby Fischer playing chess. It's annoying. Like LoL community except with Pokemon. I met a lot of sneering comments on Showdown myself.

    I did check out the youtube guy, I don't like Pokemon youtubers sorry, most of them seem not genuine and clickbait-y especially guys like Pimpnite. Even Chuggaaconroy doesn't seem genuine anymore. This guy seems like he only uses these "useless" Pokemon as a gimmick to his channel, doesn't really like them. His fans seem annoying and immature too. But hey going to OU 1800s with a Magcargo, pretty impressive I'll give him that. Last guy I watched was PikaWu who also used some unorthodox mons but he hasn't made a vid since 2016.

    I guess I can't appreciate competitive pokemon or I just might be outgrowing pokemon. This is why I only really keep to myself about Pokemon now beside this forum. The Pokemon fans outside of this forum are too immature or unbearable for me.

    I may be wrong, but I noticed you expressed a dislike for Smogon as it dismisses so many Pokemon as useless.

    This Youtube account is rather interesting, he takes many of those "useless" Pokemon and uses them on Pokemon Showdown in the higher tiers. The commentary is relaxed, although there are more factors that come in when it comes to commentating, so that's not something to judge solely on.

    If your interested, here is the channel

    For example, he showcased Butterfree in a 40 minute video.

    You don't have to check it out if you don't feel like, but I thought it might be of some interest.

    Don't feel bad about lazing around, as it is your personal free time for a reason. I find as long as you have something productive also going on, it's okay to enjoy the time you get for yourself.

    College is okay. I'm not fond of my classes going into the afternoon. I was limited when building my schedule this time, but I'll grow use to it.

    Yeah, but I laze around too much in my free time. How's college?

    That's nice to hear. I always look for time to chill out, for me though it's usually very early in the morning.

    I personally dislike some of my families attitudes, especially towards drinking. Seeing certain behaviors has given me a negative view towards it. Like you, I keep these thoughts to myself. Sometimes I wish there could be a gathering without alcohol involved.

    Oddly, showers make me feel better and increase my motivation. I was taking several per day, even though I've toned it down because I know it's not good for my skin.
