• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Good Luck to Everybody. I am looking forward to my first Tournament too.
Ill probably be the only Entrant using Ampharos-Plus Manetric-Minus as my first pokemon out.
I get hammered by Earthquake - Levitate teams but if you dont see it coming (wish there was no preview screen) or dont have your earthquake pokemon out, It can be a little bit of a shock seeing my Thunderbolt OHKO your Pokemon. (Pun totally Intended).

Just Poketransferred the last of my team this morning and registered my Battle Box. I'm running a Trick Room team with some slow, bulky sweepers. MUA HA HA.

EDIT: Just battled some kid using all unevolved Pokemon (Cyndaquil, Swinub etc). What was he thinking!?

Because I'm Happy.
Tweaked my team as i said earlier, and it's won over 30 battles.(Lati@s never see it coming :D)
A LandDos combo works pretty well, try it out sometime.
Good luck to all tommorow.

My Forretress and my Dusclops aren't doing well. My sweepers however are except for my Gyarados, not as well as the others... Oh well. Lesson learned, walls cannot use Rest well and you need mroe than one ghost wall if you're gonna do an explosion. And something better than a Forretress for Entry hazards.
HA! I BEAT A RAIN TEAM WITH MY SWEEPER HALF TR TEAM! I need to think more when I make teams instead of a whole bunch

Just won first victory against someone called Black with some good pokes. I think he was noob cause my poke survived an icy wind by a large margin even though it should have been a 1hko from a weaville and his lucario did not use extreme speed when it should have. Also his thunderous used thunder wave when my poke was clearly going for the protect.

5-1 tonight, first match was o_O, rest went fairly well. Will probably battle all day, or until I run into a bad luck streak :p

And just throwing this out there to the above. Weavile's sp att is only 45, with icy winds BP bieng 55, ~42 when you include the 25% penalty from multi target moves. Just mentioning that, one game earlier someone used thunderbolt from their aggron o_O

So many hacked Pokemon.

SOOOOO MANY HACKS. :'(

Also, you know what sucks? Landorus and Tornadus and the other one. THEY ALL LOOK ALIKE! And , when the other player's got a different language, I've got no hope of figuring out which is which. Pain in the ***.

Can't you just look at the Pokemon? o_O

Anyways, good luck guys! I'm at work for the next 6 hours and 40 minutes, so I can't really do anything. You're all soo lucky!

Like I said, they look more or less identical. Landorus is easy enough, because it's brown like dirt, but the other two? Blue and green? Can't really guess from that.

Their names are easy enough to tell by, but try figuring that out when the other player's Japanese or Korean.

Total battles: 10
Rating: 1540
W/6 L/3 Disconnections: 1

I got in ten battles before I had to recharge my DS. I lost my first battle to a Eviolite Chansey who poisoned my team while I swept the rest of the their team, and then toxi-stalled me by spamming Softboiled, Substitute, and Protect, reminescent of a Clefable set I used to use in 3rd Gen for Colloseum double battles. My next battle my opponent disconnected as soon as it started. After that I got a few wins bringing my rating up to 1542, then got two losses in a row dropping it to 1510. Two more wins brought me back up to 1540. I'll try to get a few more battles in before I go to sleep. What types of teams have the rest of you seen so far? I've only ran into a couple of Sand and Rain teams, the rest have consisted of a seemingly random assortment of pokemon.

Edit: Oh, and if any of you run into a Jeremy from Washington, with a pokemon breeder avatar, the quote: "I have no trouble dealing with surprise", and a Murkrow in his team; that's me.

So many hacked Pokemon.

SOOOOO MANY HACKS. :'(

How can you tell? What hacks have you run into so far?

Also, you know what sucks? Landorus and Tornadus and the other one. THEY ALL LOOK ALIKE! And , when the other player's got a different language, I've got no hope of figuring out which is which. Pain in the ***.

They're all color coded: Landorous=Brown, Thundurus=blue, Tornadus=green; it's not too hard. When in doubt, just kill'em with ice.

Well, one's blue, one's green, the other's orange. But if you're not paying attention, then yeah. That can get confusing. I thought you were talking about all their Pokemon, not just the Kami. XD

And I'm pretty sure you can RNG, which isn't TECHNICALLY hacking (Nintendo allows RNG so it's legal), eggs, DW or not, so it's not too much of a stretch for the Politoeds. But if EVERYTHING is in a Luxury Ball, that's a pretty big sign.

Well there is nothing wrong with rng pokemon and they are allowed. Use what you have.
So far 4 straight victories so far. Would play more but my battery is low and my net can be buggy at night sometimes.
I have not run into typical teams though. One match was close versus a rain team cause I made a bone head move to not use rock slide on a garydos and fall for the intimidate.
Also it is very funny for the opponent to not figure out I have perfect hp moves on some of my members.

I'm not doing well as i expected, getting tortured by asians lol. Every team i face seems to be full of legendaries.

Doing decent, pulling a straight up even 2 wins, 3 losses. Two losses because of first turn Para-hax on my Trick Room set-up. Fricking through the entire game off for me the second time. I got Para'd 3 turns in a row, which led to the KO of two of my Pokemon cos they couldn't take a Heracross' Close Combat with resistance.

Well, 19-6 with a 1651 rating after playing yesterday, so everyone continue to have fun :D
