    I'm a huge fan of world tournament.
    I think that it is fair to say it's one of the best additions.
    The funny thing is, I'm generally not competitive, but I really got into the tournament, it's cool to see familiar faces and gives that sense of nostalgia many games lack. Also, as a non competitive player i get a challenge which is always nice.
    This "Pokemon Rainbow" rumored game is already killing me. I want it!

    Also, general nintendo fans will probably like my youtube. I make unboxings and collection videos.

    One of the things that I always convince myself about the World Tournament is that it's the bridge between casual and competitive. Casual in that it's accessible to all types of players, and competitive in that the strategies used are often competitive. (:

    I really need to participate at the PWT a lot more than I have.. I've only won the Unova leaders tournament once, and lost in the Hoenn leaders and rental tournaments twice. I would've focused more on it but my main priority has been the pokedex, I may have to take a break from it and go back to the World tournament sometime. I love the idea of it too, I just don't know why I haven't bothered with it much.

    I had so much trouble with Kanto Leaders simply because everytime I entered I was destined to battle Sabrina at some point and she would without fail sweep me easily.

    I've made it to the Champions league and attempted it about 50 times. Of those 50 times I've made it through the first round about 20 times and about 5 times from there. I've only won once, because my team can't really take a hit and don't have the necessary speed. Oh well, it's all worth it to hear Steven and Wallace's Champion music again.

    Ugh, I'm having trouble with Kanto at the moment. Lt. Surge keeps mopping the floor with me.

    I think Surge was the only Kanto Leader I didn't actually battle. And yeah, after being annihilated by Kanto so often I used the same team but in Rotation Battle and it was so much smoother.

    Yeah, had exactly the same problem with Sabrina. She came up in every tournament and was never beaten by anyone else.

    How many downloadable tournaments are you allowed to have at a time? Is it like the c-gear/pokedex skins or the extra musical shows you can get from the DW, ie you only have one on your game at a time?

    I just defeated the Junior division finalists, I've battled less than 10 battles over wifi. I felt like it was too easy, they are some of the best in the world

    I haven't gotten up to World Leaders on Black 2, mainly because I'm not using my EV trained awesome stuff and just using my crappy in-game team. For me, Misty has always been a huge pain for Kanto Leaders. I don't have a Grass type, so I switch to Samurott to KO with Megahorn, but nope, she has Thunderbolt. I usually lose two Pokemon trying to take it down.

    The only tournament I have a chance of success in is single battles. Otherwise I get destroyed. The chance of success is still small though, since Brawly just beat me by getting two crits in a row.

    breathe it in, i'm gonna shine. it's my moment, i'm going to fly.

    My Rotation team for taking on the World Leaders was:
    Serperior (Overgrow) 1st
    Leaf Blade
    Outrage
    Iron Tail
    Aqua Tail

    Chandelure (Flame Body) 2nd
    Shadow Ball
    Flamethrower
    Psychic
    Energy Ball

    Jellicent (Cursed Body) 3rd
    Surf
    Shadow Ball
    Ice Beam
    Energy Ball

    Braviary (Defiant) 4th
    Fly
    Aerial Ace
    Shadow Claw
    Thrash

    Sending Fire, Water and Grass out first seems a good tactic, as those that use a single type often struggle for a super effective hit. Cursed Body on Jellicent is an absolute godsend. I think Red's Blastoise has tried to use Water Spout on it before, had it disable, and was forced to use Struggle (Probably because of some kind of Choice item.

    I would have added an extra tournament, called World Elite, and it would include the Elite 4, as well as the regional rivals (Blue, Silver, Wally, Barry, Hugh) and would thus provide a bunch of fresh faces, and have that pool part of the World Leader's tournament too.

    Wow, the rental tournament is just

    Terrible.
    Like, absolutely awful. The pokemon they let you choose from are awful, the majority of the Pokemon the opponents have are waaaaay better than yours and you have no real way to influence anything.

    The Battle Factory...sort of...worked because you would get hints on the first however many opponents and not ALL the pokemon were awful.
    And even when I get something okay, the opponents either have the perfect counter or a Pokemon that is just straight up better than absolutely anything I have (BOUFFALANT, SUP)

    Not to mention we cannot trade our Pokemon with the opponent's Pokemon once the battle ends.....so unlike in Factory, we're stuck with what we have until the end.


    But I actually won the Rental tournament while playing it under Rotation rule. The Pokemon I used are actually interesting too, good examples are Sunnybeaming Whimsicott with Shadow Ball and Psychic, a Gurdurr whose Poison Jab actually helps me because it just keeps poisoning the opponent, and Adamant Galvantula with X-Scissor and Wild Charge whose Attack stat is actually much higher than its SAtk stat.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    I got very close to beating Rotation Rentals

    Until Clay's Beheeyem got Trick Room off a second time, meaning there was no way for me to finish it off with Cinccino (who died to Roggenrola though did manage to weaken the two) or Sigilyph (who had to take a Smack Down and then had no chance to survive Thunderbolt)
    But there wasn't anything that I could do. If I swapped in Cinccino earlier it would have been slow and out. Later and Sigilyph would be out and Cinccino unable to do anything. There was nothing I could do against Trick Room and my 1 bulky Pokemon already died (though he did take down a Mienshao under Trick Room)

    I just keep resetting my Pokemon selection until I get the ones that I know are among the best.

    It's a little tedious, but not as tedious as losing.
