Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi, I'm a normal 13 y/o brazilian dude. I really like football as every brazilian, like reading a lot, specially percy jackson/agatha cristie. Most of the time I play football with my friends or pokemon. Almost every night I read some HQs and marvel movies.

How and when did you get your start in LC?
I started playing lc ladder in late 2014 to practice for swiss tour. I saw someone using a Surskit and thought it was cool, i made a team with it but the team was rly bad (http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/lc-182765205). Brazilian army saw my team and helped me with my pokemon and their EVs. After losing on swiss, i tried to join the community and started playing the tier a lot.

What is your favorite aspect of LC?
It's a very versatile tier, you can always surprise your opponent with a new/non expected set. also, i like the tier's offensive aspect and how the game are always fast.

Is there any mon, playstyle, etc that you feel is underrated in LC?
Carvanha and Aipom are really good and should be used a lot more. Hippopotas and Elekid are honorable mentions too.

Anything you find overrated?
Staryu. Has no decent offensive presence, makes your team very passive and isnt a really good spinner on this Drifloon meta.

What players do you look up to / are good friends with?
I'm friend with basically everyone on brazilian communities. In LC, I really like max carvalho and Br Army because they helped me join the tier. I also like my tutees spl4sh and ninjacalibur. Shoutouts for quote because he drafted me in 2 LCPLs, even tho i sucked :(

I look up to madoka and heysup, because they are the best lc players that ive seen playing and i always try to play/build like them. Levi and ZF builds are cool, too.

Everyone on TMNT and LFC (sun).

What's your favorite playstyle and why?
Bulky offense because it's solid and makes fast placed games. I also really like HO as you can see if you look to some of my replays.

What are your thoughts on Drifloon in the current metagame? Do you think the metagame would be healthier without it? Why?
It's a really good mon. Its basically like fletchling, it is great, but every decent team has at least one check for it in the back. It has a shit ton of coverage, so thats something to consider

Do you think ladder will ever be good again?
No as long as pdoosh/splash are not on it.

People did not like you because you only used one team, how did you handle with it?
I addapted! As the time passed, i learned how to make at least some decent teams.

Why do you think webs teams are not "that" good anymore?
I think people started thinking about it on their teambuild. Also snivy/onix/flying spam/drifloon are used a lot nowadays.

Is there any advice that you'd like to pass on to new LCers?
Dont be ashamed of asking questions, everyone needed to do it sometime.

Lastly, do you have a team you'd like to share with us?
