    Sign up if you've read and understood the rules posted in the commencement and want to play in NPA 7. Be sure you're available to play during a few days each week. Also, please list complete information here or you won't be counted as signed up. Limerick not necessary to sign up, but encouraged to spice things up a bit.

    Note that to be drafted during the midseason auction, you need to sign up initially as well. If you sign up at midseason and do not sign up at the beginning of the season, you will not be entered into the draft.

    Signing up means you have read and understood the rules for NPA 7 in the commencement post. Copy and paste and fill out the information below.

    Your first VGC format: Uhhh, 2010 I guess, I entered a tour for that once back when I was a kid playing TCG because it was a side event

    Why a manager should draft you: Anyone who knows me can vouch that despite my frequent + fervent swearing to quit this game forever, I will put at least 20 hours a week into prepping for my match + helping teammates

    Now that I'm not on mobile here you go. I didnt use any references so odds I even got it right are kind of low.

    Significant time missed: None (occasional PCs/MSSes/Regs and general college life)
    Your first VGC format: Technically 2011, but 2013 in reality
    Notable results:
    • Top 8 US Nationals 2016, Top 32 US Nationals 2015
    • 8-4 NPA 4, 6-3 NPA 5, 8-3 NPA 6 (66+% win rate for the Hearthome Holy Spirits)
    • Various top 16+ Regional placements (Top 16 St. Louis 2013, 2015; Top 8 St. Louis 2014; Top 16 Madison, WI 2017)
    Why a manager should draft you: I've taken NPA very seriously over the past three years. I put forth worthwhile effort into preparing for my match each week, and I always try to play in a focused environment that is as ideal as possible for success in a match. However, more than that, to me NPA is about building a community with fellow players, not only in the obvious ways of spending time practicing and teambuilding together, but also in sharing life and having fun together. Those sort of interactions are what I value most in a team, and I think it shows with the Holy Spirits' success in the last three years. From a practical standpoint, I have a solid grasp of EV optimization, in-game mechanics, and the capability of 3DS streaming, which means less matches on Pokemon Showdown. All in all, draft me if you want an overall solid player for your team.

    EDIT: Is it a Wobbuffet, or a blue Diglett with arms? I sure don't know.

    Why a manager should draft you: You like ghosting, well I'm a master at it. Not the cheaty ghosting, but you know. Ghosting.

    Should I really be signing myself up for this? Sure. I could use something to force me to play some VGC 18 these days.

    Notable results: Those are part of the past. I'm living in the present, and right now there are no notable results.
    Why a manager should draft you: I usually end up with a positive record in NPA. But somehow I also usually end up going for way higher cost in the draft than I ever deserve to be. Please be more responsible with fictional money and spend it on people more deserving, like national winners or worlds top cut performers.

    Significant time missed: Week 8 currently looks bad for me, but I'll 100% always let anyone know who needs to when I won't be free beforehand.
    Your first VGC format: 2015
    Notable results: Went 5-1 to 5-3 at 2018 Ft. Wayne Regionals. Link to prove it here. Consistently able to make mid 1700s on BattleSpot
    Why a manager should draft you: I'll bring 110% to every game and show you why drafting me wasn't a mistake. I take events very seriously and NPA will be no exception. I'm committed to putting in more effort than needed through my play and teambuilding to make sure I can try my best, but also be a positive face on teams.

    (this is a Chikorita. Its probably hard to tell, but that's what it is)

    Significant time missed: I will be around the entire season.
    Your first VGC format: (Technically 14, because I went to Nats and went 2-7, but I started in 15, haha)
    Notable results: Top 8 Arizona Regionals 2017 season. Top 16 Portland Regionals 2017. FInished the season at 406/500 last year. Top Cut London Win a Trip Challenge 2018. I have also never gone negative at an event.
    Why a manager should draft you: I may not have as many merits as others in this draft, but I know how to play the game, and have a solid grasp of the format thus far. I like my ability to successfully teambuild in any format I play, and feel confident in my ability to win against anyone I face. I have a lot of time to help others play test, and can help others teambuild for matches as well. I feel that I'm very approachable, open-minded, and can help people get better at this game, while getting better myself in the process. Feel free to ask me any questions about what I have said. Thank you for reading.
