    About me: Hello everyone, I’m MetalGross and I’m 17 years old. I play tennis and soccer and I’m pretty decent at both. I enjoy watching basketball and American Football. I’m the fit Belgian player pokemon player. I’m 2 years away from university, so I’m in 11th grade / junior / 5th secondary, whatever you like to call it. My studies are mostly focused around Latin (4h a week) and Math (8h a week, separated in 2 courses of each 4h a week) , but I also get lots of languages cuz I live in Belgium lol.

    The first Pokemon game I had was Pokemon Emerald. I was about 7 and it was the fucking best. I still think it’s one of the best games made, I loved the Island with the Battle Tower and Battle Pyramid especially, it was such a challenge. I got other games: LeafGreen, Diamond, Black, Mystery Dungeon games and a game where you had to Capture pokemons for Nintendo DS. I didn’t get ORAS because competitive Pokemon rules oo. Playing these games was a huge part of my childhood, but unlike most others I didn’t have friends that were also really into the games.

    I was introduced to Smogon when we got more into Battle Subway. That’s how I was introduced to Smogon: the thread of Battle Subway records. You needed 70 wins and at one point we got 71 or 72 with a team that contained Ferrothorn and 2 offensive mons. I also started watching Shofu videos on Youtube and started comprehending more and more about competitive mons. One day, Zorodark downloaded PO and we started playing on the most popular server, so we left Smogon behind. He had built the most bog standard early BW sand team, and to our own surprise I won games on the ladder. I mostly remember that I’d named Scarf Sand Force Landorus “Sanda Claus” which I thought was hilarious. Then, we discovered the prestigious server tournaments, which were really good back then! Playing against Z+V, meeps, Ashton Michael and Meh among others was a lot of fun. Eventually I got bored of mons, mostly because we had only one computer and ZoroDark was better and a bully, so I didn’t play much and when I did I lost in the early rounds.

    Start of MetalGross: When I moved to Texas, I got my own computer. I decided to give PO another shot, created this shitty alt and started playing a lot BW NU and server tours again. I created this shitty name and now I’m stuck with it forever, lmao. I had a lot of fun, especially with meeps shittalking and building crazy teams. He figured out pretty quick Zoro and I were related and we didn’t keep it a secret afterwards, although often people are still surprised when they find out and it’s always hilarious when that happens. Cased used his caps lock for 5 minutes straight because he was so shocked, lmao. Forum tournaments started to take over and I started mostly playing those. I started maining the OU tiers too, because it was the hardest and most active ladder. I love using creative mons and I have the most fun with them in that tier. I got a little more active on forums and started whoring for HA just so I could get in VR like Finchinator, Luck>Skill and all the cool kids. Eventually I became HA,, but by then everybody who wasn’t there yet had also begun to hang out in Rage Channel, so being in VR wasn’t that interesting anymore. I quickly lost HA after, the only form of power I’ve ever had on server. I got more active on forums, posted occasionally in the OU and the RMT sections and I became –OUTL at a point after the Genesect mess.

    I got better and better at playing, got in semis of POT and did well in some POCLs, then won became PO Champion after defeating the E4 and reigning champion Laurel. Finally, the Evergrande BIGs forgot to draft a RBY player in the SPL draft and Isa recommended me to them although I didn’t’ play RBY all that much. Somehow I managed to go 3-0 in the first 3 weeks and became an allstar, gaining a lot of recognition on Smogon. I ended 3-3 and got benched, but was the main RBY starter this year again and got insanely unluckyand finished only 3-5 while my team as a whole got also very unlucky, leading to some very high concentrations of NaCl. I got in tiebreaker for Smogon Tour as well, but lost 2-1 to both xtrashine and the other guy. Those are probably my best achievements and I like them a lot, but I dream of winning a big tournament on Smogon.
    Life’s gotten a lot busier nowadays and since I got a PS4, I don’t play mons a lot of the time anymore. I’m also now at an age where I can go out and stuff so Pokemon has gotten less and less attention. Still, I enjoy the time I spend on here and there’s certainly a lot left to be achieved.
    I hope you had fun reading!

    What does PO mean for you?
    Do you think we're currently trying to follow Smogon or do you think PO still has its merit to have its own tiers?
    Opinion on the gen 7 releases?
    PO: waste of time or you're happy to spend your time there?
    PS: do you think people should move there?
    Do you have any preferences between PO and PS on several levels ( staff, channels, tiering )
    What do you think of Finch?
    What is your dream for the future?

    I'll stop there, nice profile :)

    @AFK Vision Ward
    Texas is the best(this is a statement not a question) true
    You are the coolest(this is a statement not a question)true
    What is your biggest pet peev idk what pet peev means but i like dogs, my dad hates animals though and i can see why
    You are forced to get a pokemon related tattoo that is at least the size of your open hand. what is it? sawsbuck charging forward

    @Xdevo
    wow very devious much GER

    @JoyFrost
    Who is Xdevo? Prolly awesume rider guy
    the best description i have is angry small city redneck pokemon addict

    @E.T.

    In general, what are your thoughts about your time spent in the US?
    it was a lot of fun and a very unique experience. (holding back tiers, clenching fist) IT MADE ME THE PERSON I AM TODAY!
    What are some good and bad things about living in Texas?
    Good: football, school was easy, lots of opportunites to do sports
    Bad: the accent omg also the weather sometimes it’s just too hot to do anything you know

    Do you pay any attention to college football or just pro stuff?
    mostly NFL but I follow the college stuff a bit, like when Leonard decided to go Hulk mode I knew about it
    What have been your favorite and least favorite moments as a tier leader?
    Hoopa suspect test was def the least favorite
    Have you gotten tired of being the PO League champion yet?
    why would i n_n
    What is your opinion of RBY before and after the major mechanics changes (body slam not paralyzing normals etc)?
    i didnt play much before the mechanic change, but i feel this is slightly better, it takes some of the bullshit away. Still, it makes chansey a lot more annoying but I guess every positive has a negative


    @La.Melle2402
    1. Do you miss Belgium or can you imagine to stay in Texas forevery? I was the one who disliked moving back the most, but thinking about a future in the USA was also totally not on my mind. I enjoyed it while I was there but it’s better being here, people act more normal and the education is better. I also missed some of the little things

    2. What was your first thought when your parents told you that you will move the country?

    3. What is your football position? Attacker, I scored 30 goals in 29 games this year!
    4. Why is Germany so much better than Belgium? if you mean football i’d say wilmots but he’s fired now
    5. Would you stop pokemon if your gf (or boyfriend lolol) tells you to stop it? nah, but i wouldnt tell them i played either lo!l also im not gonna let someone tell me what i can do or can’t do..
    6. What is your favourite gen? emerald for the playing on gameboy, bw for the fun competitive battles

    @Troller
    hi ur cool but ur lucky D:
    the series was meh at best too
