    A tournament that we can all take place in from the convenience of our own homes. I guess rules would probably be something important, so I'll include those. For those familiar, they are exactly the same as the rules for the 2012 VGC Tournament.


    Also, Black 2 and White 2 will not be useable for this tournament, nor are any Pokemon that are bred/learn moves only in Black 2 and White 2.

    I'm probably screwing myself over by saying this, but I figure most people will not be very familiar with the Double Battle Format. If you noticed, there are no tiers. This isn't a Smogon-run tournament, which means there will be a huge difference between what most Competitive Players are used to, along with the fact that there is a big difference between Singles and Doubles.

    If you plan on entering, might I suggest taking a look into VGC-style battling. It's the best practice for Double Battles in this format, since a lot of the main threats will probably carry over. :) If you have any particular questions, you should definitely ask.

    I'm entering, for sure. I entered the previous wifi tournaments, and I intend to enter this one. I've even gotten a team together, and I'm testing them out now, making sure they all work well together.

    Oh yeah I am! I lost the last one again! But it got me fired up! Some people are putting up the teams they're using on the internet, so im already prepared! Lets do this! Also! I'm already registered too!

    This will be my first tournament. I feel strange coming back to Pokemon as a 24 year old having graduated college and just now getting back into the competitive scene, but I'm looking forward to it. I'll be waiting on the 6th to get in as soon as Registration opens.

    I'm going to be using my experience here to tell me whether or not I should head on to the regionals for VGC 2013. In random match-ups my teams and strategy has been dominant enough that I've gathered some confidence and am looking forward to some quality battles. My team's extremely risk-v-reward though so it'll be all adrenaline over the weekend: just the way I like it.

    Good luck to everyone. May every battle be worthy of recording.

    Yeah, I'll do this. I got lazy and procrastinated on the last couple tourneys, so I'm finally doing it this time. That said, I need to practice doubles... Still a bit hard for me ^^;

    I'll enter if I can get the wifi to work!

    I'm in. With the first one I didn't have Wi-Fi and with the next two it stopped working halfway through the tournament. Haven't played doubles in a while - I've been trying to beat Ingo on the Super Single Line.

    Nope, I'm not interested in doubles

    Totally! I've already started planning my team! :D I'm so good at double battles!

    I am definitely entering! I love VGC Style rules, and this is the closest thing I can get to VGC since I don't live in the States. I think I said this exact thing on all the other Wi-Fi Tournaments, hahah. XD

    But yeah, I'm definitely going to. I finally settled in on a team I really want to run (after going through about three that I didn't really feel were very strong), so I'm excited to get them all bred and ready to go. I guess in the meantime, while waiting for them to breed, I'll work on the spreads, to make sure everything's up to snuff. :)

    I think I'll be skipping this one. I generally prefer singles.

    jstinftw! hontoni

    Hahah fair enough. Doubles isn't really for everyone.

    How is everyone coming along with their teams? Personally, I've gotten 4 of 6 Pokemon bred, with one being all the way done. :)

    Silvershark HAWLUCHA!!!

    I'll try to join. I'll be off elk hunting during the first four days of registration, so it depends on if there's still any slots available when I get back. Since I won't have time to build a new team (this Autumn Friendly caught me by surprise), I'll be sticking with the team I used in the last two previous competitions. I might switch out a pokemon or two to mix things up, but it will mostly be the same team and strategy.

    Well i want to enter this one mainly cuz i've been wanting to play competitively for a long time but never had the chance, i may not be experienced nor good at it but i wanna know how everything works and little by little gain some experience ><

    I have a team figured out more or less, now i just need my second DS (most likely i'll buy it tomorrow) an i can start what i have planned x)

    Good luck everyone :D
  16. jstinftw!

    jstinftw! hontoni

    Hahah no worries! There're likely to be a lot more! Good luck! :)

    :D Hope you can! You've done so well the past few tournies; it'd be a shame if you couldn't this year (although for elk hunting? Not a bad trade off haha). I'm excited to (maybe) see the ideas you concoct; you've got some crazy good team building skills.

    Hope it all goes well for you! These Wi-Fi tournies are definitely a good place to start. I personally did, and I'd like to say I've got a fair grasp on Competitive Battling since. :)

    Thank you ^^
    Even though i never played competitivly i play pokemon since it first came out but never paid attention to competitive stuff but since last year i've been watching lots of poketubers batling and reading some articles so i hope i have some knowledge to win at least a game xD (believe me... that would be awesome for me)

    Well... once again... good luck x) and who knows... maybe we'll battle each other ^^
  18. jstinftw!

    jstinftw! hontoni

    Hahah ,no no, I believe you. A year ago, same Wi-Fi Tourney, I was pretty much in the same shoes as you. :)

    Awesome to know it turned out so well :D

    jstinftw! hontoni

    Hahaha I wouldn't say well, seeing as I'm not 100% sure of my actual prowess as a trainer, but I do have good bearing in terms of Competitive Battling. I really need to practice more, haha.
