If they did that in 11 i would have made it to the double elimination rounds.
I think it'll encourage more people to participate and less the opponent disconnected messages.
BTW on a totally different matter,Arcanine didn't do so well. I switched to My XD Refresh Salamence. The look on their faces when they toxic/burn/paralysis it and i refresh is probably shock to priceless.XD
Another thing. on WiFi I've been seeing less and less berries (chople,haban,kasib,ect.) being used.Lum and Sitrus are the only 2 i've seen on WiFi since mid August.
I think it might effect some people's team building ideas. What do you guys think?

As for the berries, from what I've gathered, it's due to the fact that Swagger and overall health have become more important than specific attacks. Most Pokemon can be EV trained to take specific hits, otherwise, it's a better idea to switch out as opposed to just staying in. Speaking of staying in, that's another big reason. Switching has gotten much more popular this season. Instead of leaving your Tyranitar to take that SE Close Combat from Terrakion, why not just switch in your Cresselia? If it's Choiced, that Terrakion is screwed, and stuck with Close Combat. If not, Cress will be able to just KO with Psychic/Psyshock anyways. Why leave your Pokemon in to take a move it isn't likely to take well?
EDIT: New teams were added to the RMT section! Give your fellow VGC players some help, and discuss team strategies amongst each other!

I remember reading a post somewhere about some guy/gal sent an email to Masuda about RSE remakes.The amazing thing was he/she actually got a reply back from Masuda, it said something along the lines of this-Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald are some of my favorite games in the Pokemon series, I'll take this remake thought into consideration.
The amazing thing is he said he'd take it into consideration. Now not saying that 3rd gen remakes are gonna come out or anything like that, but how would along with those (if they come out) a XD2 came out?that would be interesting for the meta-game.
And with that, the Autumn Friendly is officially over! Hopefully everyone got in some decent VGC Practice throughout the tourney; I know I did!
Click here to go to the Autumn Friendly thread, to see the discussion which unfolded. (:
Dang according to what I saw this years autumn friendly was fierce I failed to attempt to register and I have new team as well, I have 2 spots I still need to fill, I have the current pokemon for my team Can I ask for someone to help me add 2 members and possibly change someone on the team thanks I'm trying for an all shiny team and I only have about 23 pokemon that are fully EV trained so I'm somewhat limited I may add a shiny magic guard alakazam eventually when I get another clone again

FUC* ALL HACKERS!!!
ALL Gen6 6IV Event pokemon are hacked
I play Destiny on PS4, hit me up if you want to do strikes or mayhem when its up
Hopefully this is the correct place to ask, but does anyone know if there are going to be vgc regionals/nationals in the UK for 2013? I couldn't find any info online?
I collect shiny latias', and will trade well for ut ones. looking for all the different natures, please pm me!
I really really want to put a Therian Landorus on my VGC 2013 team (provided Black 2 and White 2 are mandated) but I don't have a 3DS. I'm more than willing to hack/use AR to get the Reveal Glass, but does anyone know of an illicit way to get it that (probably) won't get me in trouble during a VGC hack check?

Maybe someone here will know this answer rather than the Ask Questions thread:
Question about the Indianapolis stuff which I guess is the national tournament:
Will someone who hasn't qualified be able to compete as if it was one of the regional tournaments?

How do a load of people have shinies (especially legendaries) is it when a shiny has an egg it is shiny 2?
Most people probably get shinies by taking advantage of the random number generator, which controls if you're pokemon is shiny, what nature it has, and what it's individual values(IVs) are.
Pretty much, it take the luck out of finding these things. It does make it so if the shiny is worth anything as a shiny debatable, though.
