    I tried making a topic for this but it would appear that it wasn't approved by the mods. It's just a vgc analysis a typed up for Luxray. I hope you guys appreciate it.

    Luxray @ Sitrus berry/Shuca berry
    Ability: Intimidate
    Nature: Calm/Sassy
    EVs: 252 HP/ 6 D/ 252 SD

    Light Screen
    Snarl
    Volt Switch/Thunder/discharge
    Protect

    Luxray works surprisingly well as special wall; the best part is that it also supports your partner's special defense. Intimidate provides additional physical defensive support. Snarl is used to hit both pokemon and lower their special attack; snarl can be key to breaking sashes. Volt switch is used to bring pokemon you wouldn't switch in; Luxray's speed isn't great so you'll be taking advantage of the fact that it will be moving later. Thunder can be used instead as a means to counter rain but I prefer volt switch. Protect is a staple in doubles battles.

    Luxray needs a friend when leading in battle and there are 2 pokemon that come to mind: Hitmontop or Sableye.

    Hitmontop: Provides fake out support, a second intimidate makes your opponents start off with -2 attack (most of the time), wide guard to protect against the dreaded earthquakes.

    Sableye: Provides fake out support, priority support moves, will o wisp to neuter your opponent physicaly, trick+lagging tail if you want luxray to move before a specific pokemon.

    Only good thing regionals are for is testing a team idea and potentially getting high enough to get byes for early round in nationals.

    Seeing as how you don't need an invite it won't really matter if you go to a regional before nationals, all it really does is help boost confidence if your nervous I guess.

    Any one know the tournement fomat for Nationals? Single Elimination? The type were you play someone with the same amount of loses as you (Not a big man of but what ev)?

    Official Site says Swiss Pairings for Spring as of 3 Jan 2011 update. Nats isn't posted, yet, but I would expect the same (Swiss is that one with the same win/loss pairings)

    From what I understand (correct me if I am wrong), but it is impossible to get a Chople Berry. The only way you can get it is by Bunneary/ Loppuny, but I'm pretty sure you can't find either in B/W. As for now, there are no Dream World areas that have Chople Berries.

    I tried to find one a while back, but I did my research... I can be wrong.

    no you can get chople berries,

    When you first sign up to the Dream World, you are given 5 of one type of attack-type reduction berry, you are suppose to plant them and trade them on your share shelf to get all 17 types of them,

    i managed to find one just by scouring other peoples share shelfs for ages, you should come across onem or just trade for one!

    I'm going to go on a hunt for that berry someday. :I

    Ok, so I finally managed to put together a VGCs team, so PM or VM me if you would like to battle, and I will not deny any VGCs battles

    Anyone here going to participate in the 2012 International Challenge Tournament? Since the rules are the same, it'd be good practice for VGCs.

    Well another VGC and another disaster for me
    After leaving on Friday night I arrived in Birmingham at 1:30am and after sitting in the Airport with 2 guys (James and Matt from Preston) who I met there we made our way to the NEC at 4am!!! No sleep and lots of queuing all seem such a waste of time as by 8:45am I'd already been knocked out.
    Got paired with a guy who made the final 16 last year, and despite me having spent all year learning to RNG and breeding a flawless team I got owned without even knocking one of his Pokes out. So Gutted!!!

    The only consolation was that my team did own everyone I played in the Knockout Tournament that runs on the other side of the hall.

    I downloaded 5 Shiny Larvitars and tried RNG'ing one while I was there, got 31/31/31/31/*/* so not bad.

    After travelling all the way from Essex, staying over night in a campervan, getting up at 4am, was near the queue, nature calling before we were called in, coming out to find the line was moving, cutting the middle of the line "GAAASP!"....

    I passed 1st round with my Whim last standing with 3HP and poisoned, but I was knocked out in the 2nd round God damn Sporing Smeargle (being faster than my Whim!) destroying most of my team. I would have took out Garchomp if I was awake enough to use Ice Beam instead of Dragon Pulse, but since it used Outrage and didn't automatically use a berry, I assumed it had another berry to weaken Ice attacks.

    Either way, at least I didn't get knocked out in the 1st round. I presume that's everyone's first objective :P But downloaded two Larvitars (Black and White I had on me) so not a complete loss for everyone. I didn't stay for the Master's Final. Trying to find a Youtube vid of it. Anyway, HERE'S TO NEXT YEAR!

    Here is the final VGC battle! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGNjnQVddFY

    I was there, my sandstorm team got through to the second round. I only finished it the night before so it was untested.

    MSK, how did you IV-check your Pokemon at the VGCs?

    Congrats to Ben and of course, Ruben. I never thought his Gary Oak themed team was going to make it real far, but damn it did.

    There's always a ton of smogonites there, aren't there?

    And MSK, how did you RNG it right there?

    Hi guys

    Well I'd already found my seed on Reporter before I went, so I'd jotted down everything I needed to hit it etc. Just wasn't expecting it to be a locked Adamant nature as Serebii had said it was random nature
    So I hit my seed and it came out Adamant with the right numbers on the stats but when I took it to the guy in Gear Station he told me it only had 31's in the first 4 stats. Turns out I'd missed my PID by 2 frames but I saved by then so just have to hit it again with the other one I picked up. (In case you're wondering I got it on my spare White Cart so I reset after trading it off to download a 2nd)

    Wasn't Reuben the guy that got disqualified unfairly later that day for an incident at the hotel that his friends caused?

    Sure hope so. It was awkward having a huge lastname at nationals last year, and it definitely will be as awkward this time~ atleast it'll be easier to find my name...

    Anyway, good luck to everyone participating, and may the odds ever be in your favor!
