    I want to ask how does someone start doing competitive battles? I have no experience at all, other than just battling with passerby people and not trying cause I don't seem to care whether I win or not. If there is also a mentor available to teach me some things, like breeding, and other game mechanics; that would help a lot. I'll be waiting to hear from someone.

    I can certainly answer your question. Sadly, I'm pressed for time, so I can't give you a full mentoring session. The biggest thing you can do to get better is to just set a goal for yourself on Pokemon Showdown or on 3DS and hit that goal. Maybe start small and say that you want to win 3 games in a row, or maybe aim high and try for a certain ladder rating like 1600 on 3DS or 1300 on Showdown.

    I want to say thanks for answering, and I'll try to set a goal for myself on my 3DS cause I'm not sure how to use Pokémon Showdown, and I only use my 3DS anyways.

    Ok. One other thing to look at would be to follow a Youtuber for a bit and just get a feel for the plays they make and the Pokemon they use. I recommend checking this guy out https://www.youtube.com/user/pokeaimMD . He's usually really good about explaining his plays and he is far and away the best battler that doesn't make me cringe XD

    I'm new to the competitive side of pokemon. Been playing the game for as long as I can remember just never tried this and am curious as to how it all works.

    I would like a mentor. I am not completely new to competitive battling. I feel like I am getting a bit of hang of it. I would like to go under a mentor so I could completely master Pokemon set building. Also learn to make more teams with different variants in mind. Right now my mind only thinks one way in terms of team building. I wanna learn more as I go.

    So the last time I battled competitively was back when they had the Pokemon Mall tour around when Pokemon Red and Blue came out. One thing I would like to do is create a team with Charizard as it's anchor if that is even possible. I know that Stealth Rock was an issue with as an idea for a team. I would love to get some help or direction on how to build my team.

    Thanks in advance!
