It wasn't as great as I thought it would be, basing from the previous comments I've read. And the fact that it is browser-based doesn't make it any better either. While yes, you needn't download anything but it can slow down your browser. Never a good thing for me. ):

I'm still in cahoots with Pokemon Online. I've been with it ever since it was just up for testing until I left the competitive scene.

(BTW, Pokemon Lab is sort of the Gen 5 successor of Shoddy. I think the Smogon community made it. Not sure if it was released, however.)
The teambuilder is nice, though. PO didn't actually give us a click autofill type thing, nor viable moves, nor did it give us recommended EVs/natures, which is a pretty useful thing in comparison. PO had none of that and it meant you had to look up everything you didn't know off by heart. :(

this one's for you and me, living out our dreams
we're all right where we should be
