Honestly, I'm surprised Nintendo hasn't shut them down. They act like they own the franchise and they essentially dictate the metagame. And we know how Nintendo's been lately with their intellectual properties.
Don't let those Smogon fanboys change your mind. They gang up on anyone that criticizes their precious site. The truth is that they themselves are so deep in their bubble that they can't understand why so many people see Smogon as an elitist site.
lol I'm not an admin, I've just been around since before HGSS and moderate the Other Metagames forum on Smogon. I just felt I'd chime in since there's a distinct lack of Smogon users on Serebii and someone had to say something about it. If you want to bring anything else up, feel free to PM me.
