    Finally hit 1709! I think I'm 29-5 now (3DC's i know i'm lucky). TR teams haven't been a problem for me. They are normally surprised when I encore it just to set it back to normal, and then throw a taunt to the face to stop it from happening again after I take out that annoying amoongus, which must be a ninja due to its ability dodge the my fire blast 50% of the time...


    Also, I'm sick of playing <1500 teams. I only get like 7 points a for win with a potential to lose a lot more. Those are always my most nervous matches.

    I've only really been hitting quick sweepers, ran into 1 TR team though, and only 1 amoonguss even though i'm using one myself. I do see quite a few whimsicotts, but only one team that had a musketeer+whimsicott, and they didnt even send them out at the same time to setup the trick. So far so good, just starting again so still 14-3​

    If their TR isn't holding a mental herb, they are doing it wrong D: or just aren't aware of how much it was buffed.

    Wonder if I should have thrown bright powder on my amoogus too? Gave mine a black sludge.

    Surprisingly, I've only had 1 match where the TR user had a mental herb. But they didn't have the amoonguss as the partner so after it ate the first taunt, I was able to just encore it.

    I think most people assume that amoonguss will cover any taunt problem with the initial rage powder, so holding a mental herb would be a waste of time. This is where Whimsicott shines over the genies.

    well just went down to 15-4, thank you extreme hax beyond living thoughts, parafusioned both of my pokes via twave and swagger who both easily could've murdered their last pokes but didnt get a single hit in before they died, then proceeded to flinch me with rock slide with my last slim chance of winning, yay me...
    Edit: and yet another D/C...i should be 19-2 if i wouldn't be getting my *** rigged so much :/

    huh... it took 57 matches before I pulled someone who forfeited, few DC'ers but never a forfeit. Shame, his Haxorus was just about to die anyways.

    True, I've only ever had 1 person actually taunt my TR'er. Course had I not given it a herb, it'd be taunted constantly XD Oddly yet to see a whimsicott. Might change if I finally get off my rear and pull myself out of the 1500's. Just don't get enough points against 1400's :/ no offense to anyone in there.

    And now that you know I"m running a TR team, watch I run into one of you next :p

    edit: 57 matches? o_O I've only got 12 down. What am I doing taking a break between each one for?

    Heh, just had a wonderfully satisfying moment where I switched in Reuniclus and Ferrothorn just as my opponent TR'd. That was a fun win :)

    i finished off tonights run by going against a few unexpected pokemon, simisage and swoobat i was never expecting to see in this tournament.
    left me with a total of 38-22 so far, not bad.

    So far, my only big loss was to a team of all three musketeers and genies.
    I lost 4-0.
    Besides that, i've been doing really well. No haxes in any battles, and my team kicks arse
     
  15. jstinftw!

    jstinftw! hey trainer

    Man, when I got on today, no one was on, and then everyone gets on while I'm at work.

    Sometimes, living in Japan ain't such a hot thing. Anyways, still 9-1, no ragequits yet. I did have this one battle where they set up the Trick Room for me, which was cool cos I got to throw up a Reflect instead.

    AzureCharizard Really? Come on now.

    i have 44 matches and my ranking is 1671 =)

    got 1 more D/C, and then got royally screwed....AGAIN! 15-6 now :/ shoulda entered this tourney and made a team considering my luck...put freakin inner focus and w/e prevents crits on all my pokes or something
     
  18. Lazy Shiny Hunter

    Lazy Shiny Hunter (Insert witty line)

    Record now is 12-14... yep, a losing ratio. Technically I should have at least 15 wins, but ragequitters ruin all the fun. And by fun I mean getting into an endless cycle of weak players to beat, followed by better players who lower my points, or just plain unfair hax/whatever. After all of that my points add up to a grand total of 1501.
    ...I think I'm quitting for the day.

    Right, calling it a day, I think. I'm not sure of my exact win/loss 'cos I didn't start counting 'til my 17th match, but I'm currently at 34 played, 1623 rating. Think my win/loss is roughly 21/13. Hopefully I can build on that tomorrow, but that last timme my score was around the low 1600s I lost a bunch and dropped about 70 points in 5 matches.

    Still, wish the ranking battle was this fun all the time. I've run into a few rage quitters, and I've missed out on a couple of wins (and losses, to be fair) from random disconnects, but it feels like my score is accurately reflecting my play for a change.

    Thoughts on the day

    Zoroark is ridiculously easy to spot

    Galvantula is my MVP, no question

    Trick room teams are a pain in the backside

    I put Cinccino on my team for one reason; Rock blasting Volcarona. He is damned good at it. The absolute definition of situational, but that little guy has saved me a whole bunch of times.

    Iron Barbs/Rocky helmet damage has won the game for me twice when I should've been KO'd. I feel terribly bad about this. But not that bad.

    I REALLY hate Amoonguss...
