I know I would most likely lose again, but I`m up for trying again if there is enough interest.

I was just checking back here for a bit for old times sake, but i wanna bump this because pokemon showdown was SUPER fun, and I highly enjoyed it. Though, I will say I always found the tournament style to be both difficult, and a little tedious. It would be much better to approach this as if it was a League thing here. I dont think its worth it to calculate rank until more interest is shown, but competitve pokemon is really enjoyable once you get the groundwork down.

That being said, I will warn that there is a huge difference between playing pokemon and playing competitive pokemon. It would be cool if someone more experienced then me would give a rundown and advice.

Not sure if I fit but I've peaked around 1600-1650 elo on ladder so I can attempt to help

Teambuilding doesn't matter if you can't play the game well, and the best way to get out of this is to use pre-existing teams.
Spoiler for Standard Rain:
Very simple team, get rain, keep rain, use it to sweep. Hurricane has 100% accuracy in rain, and Fire attacks are weakened, making Magearna a fearsome late game sweeper. Try to make sure Pelipper doesn't die, and yeah.

Spoiler for Not a cheese team:
This type of team generally features defensive pokemon that you can switch into so your threats don't die. Then, while everything gets chipped, your fast, hard hitting thing comes in and wins. Or your other thing gets stats from setup moves and wins the game that way.

For the most part, don't change the teams yet, get to know the game a bit better, then you can try to make your own team. PM me if you ever need advice

Alternatively, if you hate math and numbers try out Little Cup.
https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/little-cup-beginners-guide.3591894/

All stat numbers rarely go above 20. This makes it really easy to calculate mid-fight how much damage you'e going to do to a pokemon if you care about calculating that stuff. EVs only increase stat points by a couple numbers so you don't have to worry as much about how many out of the 255 EVs to put into each stat. Items are pretty straightforward and with most of the meta pokemon you're running the same standard items. Stalling is less effective so you don't have to worry about running into long boring matches all the time (although if you like stalling you can make it work). Lastly, the pokemon are a lot cuter and you get to play iconic pokemon like Meowth. Heck, even magikarp is lowkey viable (except not really).

I can tell you a lot of stuff about little cup meta if you want. Some of those tips are translatable to other formats too.
