Seeing as I was one of the people that first did tiering on PO (for DPP NU 7 years ago), it seems somewhat appropriate that I'd be the one to end it.
Due to a lack of interest, playerbase, and general desire to continue, PO will hereby cease our separate tiering and adopt Smogon tiers for SM. I'd like to thank all of the people that helped PO along this 7 year journey, and I hope the experience helped you all evolve like it did for me.
A decision will be made shortly about the past generations and this will be updated with the final outcome then.
Welcome to the next edition of Player Interview! This edition features @Draciel, the winner of the Pokémon Online Viability Tournament (POVT)! In the POVT, Pokémon are divided into tiers based on viability, and players must purchase these Pokémon to build teams. At first, only the lowest tiers are available, but as the tournament progresses, higher tiers become available. Without further ado, let’s begin the interview!
1. How did you first discover Pokémon?
Draciel: I used to watch Pokémon on TV when I was a kid; it was a big hype back then. I didn’t really have a clue about Pokémon games until one of my classmates told me how he played Pokémon ROMs on PC with Desmume. I got curious and decided to give it a go; I got so hooked that I spent my entire vacation playing Black 2, Black, Platinum, and HeartGold.

1. How did you get introduced to Pokémon?
Zoroark: I used to watch the Pokémon Anime when I was a kid. I really liked it, and I used to spend hours watching episode after episode. One day my brother bought a copy of Pokémon Red in German, (for some reason...) and I started watching him play. Soon enough he got a Yellow version, which I borrowed from him, and that was the first Pokémon game I ever played. From there on, I found the game quite interesting, and I ended up loving it.
2. How did you get introduced to PO?
Zoroark: I think the first time I saw the word "Pokémon Online" was when I was an active Gen...
