    Default Random Match-ups

    How are you guys faring in the random match-ups?

    I ask because I can't seem to make any head way and people seem to only use the same pokemon.

    Do you use random match ups often, and what is you rank?

    I sucked. However I rage a lot, but I DO NOT disconnect.

    However my record is a laughingstock, I'm EV training for the first time and am trying to become at least decent among the community.

    I do fairly well, only had like 2 disconnects. Running Ferrothorn, Jellicent and Garchomp as a usual team and changing based on what I see coming if need be.
    Currently not trading or battling until my router is replaced.

    Current shinies: Venasaur, Meganium, Cyndiquil, Totadile, Treeko, Torchic, Mudkip, Turtwig, Chimchar, Piplup, Ditto, Metagross, Umbreon, Darkrai, Cloyster, Squirtle. Just needs me some Gen 5 Starters and Charizard. (Most is not for trade unless I get a good offer.)

    Looking for: Shiny Absol, Shiny Ekans, 1-4 gen fossils, pokerus, Rayquaza, Darkrai and Shaymin.

    Can give: Spiritomb, Victini, UT Shaymin, Eevee, Event Celebi, Pokerus, Zorua, both 5th gen fossils and all starters.

    I tried it once. I faced a complete noob who sent out his serperior and me my Haxorus. He used Frenzy plant and Giga Impact. One of those players. My Haxorus swept him and he disconnected....grrr. Then I faced two other guys and I was mauled. Bad experience.

    I do fairly well most the time, but still people who fail vs me when they use latios, garchomps etc are a joke and dc... Then again 95% of people i face abuse Tyranitar, Garchomp, Excadrill, Latios.... pretty lame. Not impressed by people at all on this.

    It is definitely different from the standard metagame because there are no tiers, just some banned legendaries. case in point wobbafett can be found, as well as speed boost blaziken (on japanese teams)

    which reminds me, if porygon2 traces shadow tag, wouldnt that prevent wobbafett from switching? because it didnt last night...

    i thinkn they cancel each toher out. Wobba was the only with Shadow Tag in 3rd Gen so I think it is an effect to remove battles that last forever.

    diconnectors are really annoying but im doing alright, the worst part is that the opponents pokemon almost always wake up within 2 turns after my breloom uses spore which really sucks im half tempted to to try a rain or trick room team sometime

    Disconnecting is evil

    People disconnect so much on rating mode that I just play the casual mode because i'm sick of people rage quitting

    I can't find anyone to fight in Rotation battles... D= Oh, and yes, when I DO find someone they have Over Powered hacked Pokemon, or they're some raging Japanese person looking to kill my poor Pokemons >.<

    they really need to fix the rating system to compensate for all the deliberate disconnects. if I had a point for every time someone disconnected on me....I would be less mad at least. also if the move would end with a win and they quit in the middle you would think it would record the outcome like in PO.

    LOL moment: facing a team with dragonite, salamence, flygon, hydregion, and garchomp. such a noob. his rating was below 1400. he did manage to bolt cloyster because I shell smashed. and he quit....

    I rage quit a little... but, I hate it when they see your Pokemon and run. Also, from this moment on, I will not rage quit ANYMORE!

    Ugh, too many disconnecters. My score would be a lot better if it weren't for them, but it's still pretty good. I think it's at a 1,575.

    My gliscor and gengar are amazing.

    I wish all rage quiters would say this....Good to see someone being a better sport.

    There should really be a rating penalty for disconnecting. But I've gotta be honest, I have rage quitted a few times in the past just cuz I saw other people do it... I feel like a horrible idiot. XO But now I know that they'll ban you if you keep disconnecting, so I don't disconnect any more.

    But my trick is to play rating mode during the hours 10AM to 2PM. In America, that's when Japan is asleep, any they just DOMINATE.
