Went 5-3 First time ever in vgc. First loss I had a a Calmed Mind Cofagrigus and Amoongus both full HP, time was called and he had 3 pokes with no hp but since he had more pokes he won. And second loss I was hanging with some friends on the TCG side and didnt hear pairings were called so i got an auto loss :/ but other then that had fun and ill proby be at fall regionals so say hi if you're going (I know its like 3 months away but what evs :P)
Can I look at someone's team, so I can train an identical one?
A successful one would be nice.
I'm new to VGC, and I want to go to a tourney soon, so I would like to get started.
|Pokemon Parodies|Newest Parody:"The Dog Who is Staying"|
Anyways, there's this new online tournament going on for the Japanese players with BW2. It's a new ruleset, only allowing Pokemon from the new Unova Pokedex (i.e. the Pokedex in Black 2 and White 2). The reason I bring this up is that there's talk of this becoming the new official ruleset for VGC 13. What are your guys' thoughts on this, if it were to become true?
Personally, while it is limiting in that there are less Pokemon viable (and a lot of key Pokemon are taken out for Pokemon that would normally be deemed "bad"), I think this could make the game a bit more interesting. I know a lot of people are complaining about it, but I feel that having a metagame with less of the standard threats of VGC 12 could allow other Pokemon and strategies shine, if only just for one season.
Sand would also be the overcentralizing weather, as Sun (while an awesome offensive weather) is nowhere near as useful as Sand. I don't run weather though, so I imagine I'd just get sick of seeing Sand teams.
But anyways, what are your guys' thoughts?
I don't know if I'm allowed to double post, but the thread's been kinda dead. Come on guys! Where's all the VGC talk? :/
Anyways, tomorrow starts Worlds! Who are you guys rooting for?
In Masters, I'm definitely rooting for Ray and Wolfe, although Junpei or Satoru winning wouldn't surprise me either. I'm still rooting for Ray or Wolfe though. :P
In Seniors, I don't know very much about their metagame or their players, but I'm definitely rooting for Aaron/Cybertron. He's a crazy good player for a Senior; I really wish him the best!
Any games today?
Man it's been a long time since i posted in this thread....
I'll also be rooting for Ray and Wolfe, and all the others from the US as well.
I'm also looking forward to watching the masters championships live on the website.
I'm rooting for Gary mother****ing oak =P
Current Hunt : HeartGold - Route 35 (Badge Quest 3)
Does anybody know if I can compete in the next VGC from another country?I mean I live in Greece where we don't have VGC,and I intend to travel in Europe to compete there.Is it possible or I can't because I am from another country?Please let me know..
RAY RIZZO THREEPEAT!!!
I was honestly rooting for Wolfe the entire tournament though. It was cool he made 2nd at least. I dunno, his Rogue playstyle vs. Ray's standard playstyle? Rogue all the way. But fair's fair.
I rooted for Cybertron and Babytron too! None of my picks won. Maybe I shouldn't have voted for them XD
Any idea on when we are going to know the rules for VGC 2013?Because I wanna start working on my team....
Just had a word with an official Pokemon VGC guy.He said the rules are likely to come in late August early September :/
