Smogon strikes again
Smogon, the German Nazi Koffing, would soon dominate the web! Pokemon on the internet. Let's make it happen.
2) A(n English) forum named after said Pokemon that specializes in competitive Pokemon (also known as the metagame for Pokemon). It is arguably the largest one out there, and also produces the most commonly used tier list for the purpose of comeptitive Pokemon, which are used to determine what Pokemon are allowed to be used for a particular match (for example, a match inteded for a lower tier will not permit high tier Pokemon, though higher tier matches allow lower tier Pokemon).
Because of the tier list (and the fact that its members are known to be elitist at times), Smogon is commonly hated by 1) people who can't accept that their favourite pokemon is placed too high or low; 2) people who just plain hate tiers in general, and 3) people who sees Pokemon as a ten-years-old's RPG only, and not as a strategy game.
A: Gardevoir is NU because Smogon said so.
B: How dare you! Gardevoir rocks and sweeps entire teams!
C: Smogon sucks anyways because they think Garchomp is Uber! I mean, Castform can OHKO Garchomp with Blizzard!
D: Relax. Gardevoir's only NU because people don't use it. Convince people Gardevoir is good and get them to use it and it will rise back up. Besides, Castform OHKOs standard Rayquaza with Blizzard too and nobody's saying Rayquaza isn't Uber because of it.
E: I am a Smogonite and I say Garchomp's Uber so suck less nubz.
F: Why are we so serious about a children's RPG?
2) The aforementioned group's corresponding website that is infamous for having the worst moderators and staff on the internet. The most elitist, childish, sad and pathetic group of people you'll ever have the misfortune of coming across...just what you'd expect from adult pokemon fans.
3) an adjective for terrible forum moderators.
I went to Smogon and they permanently banned me for saying that I didn't like Harry Potter.
God, this moderator must be like 10 years old! I've never met anyone so childish and petty! He totally smogon'ed me!
2/An unfortunate display of such unfortunate elitism kindly supplied by said unfortunates.
2/Dude: Woah, no need to go all Smogon all of a sudden...
Examples of this bigoted ass wiping can be found in their treatment of the beleagured and naieve ggfan. All he wanted was to be accepted into the fold but those ELITIST BASTARDS just said no and then probably forced sexual favours out of him.
In their efforts to control the fabric of LIFE ITSELF they have extended a long slimy manipulatory arm into the oblivious realms of youtube and hentai pornography, their residents two favourite pastimes.
BEAR WITNESS PEOPLE: the only way to stop these people is to flood the shoddy battle chatbox with sexual euphamisms. This generally causes mass masturbating sessions into the bed they've lived in for approximately 43 years in a row.
Smogon: My dick in your asshole you faggot
