    Wow, I got very lucky against this one player from Germany named Tobias who I think I played against yesterday since I remember seeing that they had all three legendary beasts, Suicune, Entei and Raikou. My Ferrothorn got lucky with his quick claw to get Suicune health low and Gliscor came in for the two for one using Earthquake to take out both Suicune and their Metagross. XD

    Wait, is there a way to battle someone specific if you've swapped friend codes? one of my friends is playing in the tournament and I wouldn't mind playing him once officially xD


    As for tournament status, 19 games, 9 Wins 10 Losses. I did much better yesterday and was able to pretty much equal out my wins and losses. My team isn't super great and I have very little experience in doubles, so that's about how I figured my record would be :3 Hopefully today I can pull it farther into the positive side >w>

    DEFINITELY looking forward to a match with you now. My whole reason for entering was to gear up for the VGCs.

    If you see "Zade" from Alabama asking if Victory is Important then know I'll put on my best effort!

    I doubt it; I was just referring to the normal way of battling others on Wi-Fi. If you could battle individuals in this tournament that'd lead to way too much cheap tactics (setting up dummy accounts with lvl 1 Pokemon that you can beat up on; etc).

    Well, update while waiting for a battle to pop up.

    So, I'm currently at 17-3, 7 DCs, for a total of 26 battles. My latest score is 1645, not including my last match cos it hasn't loaded yet. I wish I'd had more time to play, but I have to bounce between 2 jobs, plus the rest of the nuisances of life (and the happy parts with the girlfriend). I decided to just stay up late and get in as many battles before about 3:30 am for me.

    A lot of really interesting battles, although some of them seem too easy. That's probably when I bump into a less experienced/competitive trainer. I do like the array of Pokemon I'm seeing though. It's really nice seeing all these different teams, using uncommon Pokemon, as opposed to all the standard teams.

    My internet connection drops sometimes, although it's usually at the beginning of the battle. I'm a little worried they'll count against me in their DC count, but we'll see. I know for sure of the 7 DCs, 3 of them were before the battles officially began, possibly from me. Which is sad, as some of my favorite matches of the tourney were DC'd before I could save the video. Hopefully it works out alright though. Fingers crossed!


    Idle Chatter Topic:
    What are you guys doing besides battling? Obviously, there is that wait moment before a battle, and sometimes, you don't bump into anyone for a while. And even with that, there's still what's going on during the battle.

    So I guess the question is, are you guys doing something else while battling? For example, are you watching TV or something on the computer? Are you listening to music? What're you all doing?

    I personally have been trying to find a happy medium. I'm sticking with my Pokemon, but I couldn't decide on the right background noise. I tried watching the raw Japanese episodes of the Pokemon anime, but I couldn't focus with all the pictures moving and not knowing what was going on. So I tried watching the dubbed episodes of the anime instead. That didn't work for me either, since I couldn't really keep up with what was going on in the episode due to my concentrating on my battles/notetaking. So, I finally decided on just playing a podcast in the background. I tried listening to a few of different ones, bouncing between an array of Competitive Pokemon podcasts, TCG Podcasts, and a blend of the two, and ultimately decided on Purple Version: It's Super Effective Pokemon Podcast. Great guys, I just started recording with them as well as a special guest, and they have very interesting convos. I couldn't listen to my own Pokemon Podcast, StriatonRadio, since I get distracted by my own voice (I tend to correct myself as i listen XD).

    And on top of all that, I'm doing laundry. hahah XD

    But yeah, besides letting us know about your battles, what else are you guys doing?

    I think I am playing a hacker. This person, John from Norway has a Aerodactyl that kept using Rock Slide to keep causing my team to flinch until the final turn where I was FINALLY able to score the final two hits to take it down. There is usually no way a move can keep causing your team to flinch so many times even with the Kings Rock that helps causes flinching with whatever attack you use. Here is the battle vid for you guys to see and decide: 12-94845-02411

    I like trying to keep up the Pokémon theme with maybe the show or music (whether it be from cds, Youtube, or even just putting the music on from the battle itself) or just regular tv if I can find something.

    Dawwwe; just had another DC. Bulky Cresselia was getting stalled out by my team. Sore loser. =/

    Oh well. I really don't have the mult-tasking ability at all; in matches I'm focused ENTIRELY on the Pokemon and trying to remember what their max speed values could be and what moves they might be running considering their partners (My lovely lady Meinshao has Wide Guard ready at all times).

    -but in between matches I'm usually leaning back in my chair thinking about the current scene in my novel. I have my book pulled up in another window here on the PC with the current paragraph waiting unfinished. I'll just stare at it and think about how best to finish it.

    Usually I'll think adding my Mienshao as a character...but that may just be because I haven't gotten enough sleep...

    Hahaha Fair enough. Meinshao character sounds entertaining. XD

    I feel bad for the person I just battled. She obviously just brought her In-Game team. She DC'd but I don't blame her.

    I can not recall their entire team since it ended once I took out their Garchomp with Draco Meteor but just had my fourth straight DC/rage quitter/sore loser. One of the sore losers is from Illinois and they have exactly four Pokemon in their team: Landorus, Tornadus, Hydreigon and Garchomp. So if anyone sees someone from Illinois with only four Pokemon and it is these four, then that person is a rage quitter so be prepared.

    EDIT: Now make that five in a row. Played against someone from Gabon who was using Gengar and Krookodile and they DC aka rage quit after taking out their Gengar with a critical OHKO.

    I also play since Red and Blue... so many years ago *-*

    I started looking at competitive since I found Serebii back in the end of RSE. Never played online but tried to train some EV'd Pokémon for Battle Frontier. With DPPt came the Wi-Fi and I started playing. I was never a top player because I don't go with staple teams. I don't use Garchomp/Zapdos/Terrakion just because it's what everyone uses. But I played over 800 hours in Diamond just because of the Wi-Fi with training, battles, trades, events, shinies... lots of things.

    Now it's my first entering in competitive 5th Gen and I'm starting my team. This Wi-Fi tournament is perfect to improve my team and my skills. I also found out back in 4th Gen that I'm better at Doubles xD

    I never thought the elemental gems would get so much use when I first saw them. But they have some point specially in a 4 vs. 4 match.

    Well, when waiting for a battle, I wait 30-35 seconds to find a match, then I back out, watch a few battle videos or read a few threads before trying again.

    As for when I'm not playing matches, there's always housework to get done and I borrowed some books from the library, so I take time reading those when I need a break. It helps when I start getting frustrated battling. Right now I'm reading the last Redwall book: The Rogue Crew.
