    What I found to be very successful is Prankster Liepard, Skill Link Cicinno, and StallSweep Shield Dust Dustox(Roost, Quiver Dance, Iron Defense, Bug Buzz). I don't see what is the big fuss is about Beautifly; a Dustox can pull its weight against a Metagross.

    i'm very curious about this. if a pokemon with the ability technician is to attack using acrobatics while holding no item, does the base power boosts by x1.5 first due to its ability then double due to no item or vice versa? if it is the former case, then acrobatics delivers whooping 165 power, not including STAB or flying gem

    Well, with a water team, teaching Starmie Thunderbolt is the best thing you can do. Gastrodon would need Grass Knot if you're willing to teach it that too. For other electric types, your Kingdra will be your best bet, not being weak to them. But the rest will have trouble. I went with a rain team using Politoed, with variations of Magnezone, Tornadus, Ludicolo, Breloom and Dragonite to win the tournaments. The only problem with using rain is that other leaders can easily take advantage of your free weather, notably Juan and Clair, so you need to be careful with that. My team performed very well, though that's no surprise with Drizzle.

    Oh, there are many alternatives you could use, though I haven't tried much with others. Since you can do these tournaments is Doubles and Triples, you could experiment with that. I'd suggest a Trick Room team for Doubles, though I don't know how effective that is against anyone.

    Well, the trainers in PWT don't switch out pokemon doing battle. So that gives me time to let Liepard paralyze or trick iron ball. After my liepard dies, I set up with Dustox. Hey look, it can take down a team of dragons.

    252Spd
    4Hp
    Hi Jump Kick
    Night Slash
    ThunderPunch(kind of unsure about this one)
    Blaze Kick/Flare Blitz

    Milotic with Leftovers
    SpDf 252
    SpAtt252
    Spd4

    I'm looking for something that is defensive that can survive strong attacks and lower opponents stats, paralyze, ect.

    Thanks very much

    I just looked at the Japanese website to see the new promotion to fight Trip, Stephan, Kotetsu, & Virgil. Can anyone tell who the Ace trainer & the youngster are supposed to be in the pictures

    Did anyone else notice that Nintendo apparently messed up on one of the tournament distributions again? I just saw this on Pokemon.com (I do not believe it has come to the attention of Serebii.net yet, as it has not appeared in the news feed):

    Note: The initial distribution of the “2012: Masters Division Challenge” tournament data for the Pokémon World Tournament contained inaccurate team information for one of our World Championship players. In order to ensure that this player’s team is properly represented, we have fixed the data, and it can now be downloaded at the Pokémon World Tournament.

    If you have already downloaded the original “2012: Masters Division Challenge,” you can download the updated tournament data “2012 Masters Division Challenge” and play against this world-class team of Pokémon. Note the updated name—the correct download does not have a colon after 2012 in the title.

    Guys I need a help about my sandstorm team!

    My team:

    Tyranitar: lonely nature, crunch,payback,stone edge and earthquake
    Excadrill: sand force,lonely nature, earthquake,iron head,rock slide and sword dance
    Terrakion:impish nature, sword dance, x scissor, stone edge and sacred sword

    I need a good moveset for every pokemon because in PWT is difficult to battle some types of pokemon.

    Is it a good sandstorm team?

    Someone can give others pwt's team?

    Thank you very much

    I hate Pokemon that are holding Focus Sashes or have the Sturdy ability.

    They're seriously the only reason I ever lose in the World Leaders tournament, my Garchomp and Hydreigon pretty much dominating everything otherwise.

    Cynthia is the worst offender for that and her infernal sashed Garchomp

    I found this clip on the post for the Ash vs Stephan episode. It talks a little bit of the special event where you can fight the anime rivals:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGW0C...ature=youtu.be

    Here's what we now know so far:
    • Trip is an Ace Trainer in the game & he'll be using his Jellicent (evolved from his Frillish in episode 10)
    • Virgil's a Ranger & he'll be using Eevee & Espeon
    • Stephan's a Black Belt & he'll be using Sawk & Zebstrika
    • Kotetsu's a Youngster & he'll be using Samurott (who knows Megahorn)

    Not sure if anyone's discovered this before...but you can manipulate the mix rotation battles (haven't tried the other battles yet) to get the AI to pick a certain Pokemon.

    I first discovered this when I jokingly took my lv 100 EV trained virizion, newly hatched geodude, UT lv 35 reversal mountain volcarona and newly hatched wurmple into the mix rotation PWT.
    In the first matchup, the NPC (think it was Clay) picked my geodude and I thought 'phew, thank goodness he took an UT pokemon, if virizion got picked there's no way I'd win.'
    In my second and third matchup, the AI took my volcarona twice.

    When I tried again in the tournament with virizion, budew, volcarona and wurmple, the AI picked Volarona every single time. I'm starting to think that the game picks a pokemon of yours that has the best type advantage against your entire team, regardless of their stats.
    This means that you can essentially trick the AI into receiving a useless Pokemon (or at least a weak, UT pokemon). It IS kind of risky because if you take a team of three that's weak to another type and your opponent happens to have that type, you may have a bad time. But assuming your fourth 'useless' pokemon is taught a rubbish movepool and is completely untrained, you're basically fighting 4 to 3, which I guess might be beneficial. I think I may make my team virizion, volacrona, heracross and pidgeotto, and teach pidgeotto some useless moves.

    I just tried the recent PWT download that came out today, it should be pretty easy. Kotetsu looks like he uses the Youngster sprite.

    I doubt so. The order that they sent out their Pokémon looked the same as listed on Serebii's article when I played it.

    Finally took on the Masters Division tourney. Surprisingly enough, I reigned supreme my first time through, and I absolutely destroyed Ray (the champion).
    I'm really loving my team.
