My friend would like to start playing Pokemon competitively. Would /vp/ have any recommendations for good and not cancerous youtube streamers or tutorials which can help him get started in learning. I feel that I can only teach him by example, and with the game having so many different combinations and things to remember, it's frustrating trying to explain all of them one by one.

Verlisify.

>>24945714
you can just play random battles on shopdown. It'll teach him the general sets that most pokemon use and give him general battle experience.

Stop him before it's too late.

CybertronVGC
PokeaimMD
The only two good ones for this.

>implying random battles sets aren't usually pants on head retarded

Verlisify for youtube. smogon.com and pokemondb.net are also great resources.
>>
>>24945714
Try Pyrotoz. Nice guy, on pyrotoz.com you can find some pre-built teams (although some of them are quite gimmicky). Also, he can play the game.
Bonus points for not being a furry like Verlis.

I say that I'm against this guy, but I will not be rude. He made guides for beginners based from actual facts on websites. What I dislike about him and his reputation is his bashing from Smogon and ranting from one ban from one pokemon. His pokemon sets also S-UUCK, I will not stand here and let any new pokemon player fall for his shit. That's my other problem with this guy.

He is a good player on showdown and he made actual content via streams. His pokemon sets albeit gimmicky, they actually work well. He was here on gen 5 and today, he is still skilled on playing competitive pokemon. Good guy, mature, and a good player. I don't like him because of his use of cancer memes.
If you want the most gimmick motherfucker playing pokemon, try Foofootoo. His sets and strats are fucking horrendous that he won with having that.

Also Foofoo and Pyrotoz are good friends.

Etika is cool, i learned a lot from him when i was starting plus hes funny... i like watching pimpnite cause you learn a lot of moves and shit you wouldnt know by reading guides...also he teaches a lot of prediction
>>
>>24948476
Just be sure you don't take Pimpnites sets not too serious. Some of them can work, but most of them are just gimmicky stuff that will fail you most of the time, like special Tyrantrum, or physical banded Vaporeon. But he's fun to watch.

>>24945714
>non-cancerous

>Youtube

Pick one
