I started playing casually when Pokémon Diamond was released. I started playing competitively after that, starting with Triple Battles in Black/White (R.I.P. Gems ), before slowly moving to Singles in X/Y!
I excel at team building with unconventional Pokémon and making them work effectively even in OU. If you have an empty final slot in a team that needs filling, I will happily brainstorm ideas with you
Rule of Thumb: Prepare for popular team picks by using stuff your opponent is less familiar with.
