    jstinftw! hey trainer

    I don't know if I'm allowed to make this instead of a mod, but I just refreshed my twitter feed and I saw the news. And I'm excited about it.

    And then on the main site



    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.


    Source.


    ---------------------------------------


    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 just gonna use the same team I've used throughout Pokemon Black and hopefully have fun. ^^

    I'm sure it will! Good luck with your team! I'm probably going to be using another modified version of my 2012 International Challenge team.

    Hopefully, this won't be as big a mess as the Autumn Unfriendly.

    I'll be sticking with the team I used in the last wifi competition myself. Now for the first question that popped in my head when I heard about this: "Why no Winter Friendly Nintendo?"

    I should probably start training a real team, huh...
    Oh well. I might not enter anyway ^^'

    jstinftw! hey trainer

    The 2012 International Challenge wasn't so bad. There were rage-quitters, sure, but it wasn't as bad as the Autumn Friendly. :)

    Hahaha! Winter is not friendly, that's why. XD

    Hahah yeah. It seems that this whole Wi-Fi tourney thing is going to actually be a thing. Having a team for it could be useful. XD But if you don't enter ,it's pointless so. haha

    Chances are I'll slack off on breeding the team again, but if I do end up getting myself back into pokemon breeding, I'm definitely entering.

    I'll probably get the new Kid Icarus game as soon as I get school work out of the way anyways....
     
  10. jstinftw!

    jstinftw! hey trainer

    Nice! VGC Style tournaments are somewhat of a rarity, so I think everyone interested should definitely try it. :)

    Psssshhh... Pokemon > Kid Icarus. :mad: jk, haha.

    But yeah, I totally forgot that you were actually pretty active in the Autumn Friendly! Hopefully you do join (again, I get excited for people who are joining. haha)!

    32er TM87? I got TM32 :]

    This is great for people like me who don't have the time to go to real VGCs :]
    Definitely participating.
     
  12. jstinftw!

    jstinftw! hey trainer

    Same! Exact same reason why I get hyped about these tournaments (and why my podcast will run a tournament using VGC rules afterwards).

    By the way, for those who need more Pokemon in their lives and are either bored or have lots of time, Episode 20: Renee the Ursaring of my podcast, StriatonRadio, and Episode 76: No Lemon, No Melon of The Pokemon Podcast: It's Super Effective talk about Double Battles and VGCs, so if you need some tips on Double Battles as well, these could be good listens. :)

    Something happened to my 3DS charger. :/ Now I can't breed the pokemon myself until I get a new one.

    ....But I could get desperate and offer IOU's to people who are willing to breed for me.

    I've just registered for this, so hopefully it'll be alright. Skipped the last wi-fi tourney, part out of lack of time and partly due to Autumn Friendly woes.
    Now, just to come up with a team ha

    Shneak this is a Nessa x Sonia stan account ✨

    I'll participate for fun (not a huge double battler). I need to get started on EV training though.

    I participate in these things for fun, and for experience if I ever manage to get good enough for the actual 'live' VGC tournaments.
    I hope there aren't as many rage-quitters this time, or none at all; half my total battle count in the 2012 International Challenge were lost to those people...

    Good luck!

    I entered, which is something I wouldn't normally do because I am not much for competitive battling. I am using my current in-game team. It's not my original White team, but one I am comfortable battling with. Hopefully it will be fun!
