    I'm getting a lot of those star-like animations... what is that?

    I'm now close to 1600, after a good winning streak.

    And you get banned for an hour for RQing. If you do that too much you will be disqualified from the ranking. But the problem is that that won't count as a win for the poor guy who was in fact winning and that's just unfair...
    I never payed much attention to her but now i only want to improve my team so i can use her more xDD

    And yes i was talking to a friend who's in the tournament too and we were playing some games x)
    Funny part... we got paired up once in the friendly, that was awesome xDD

    Pokémon who manage to get a strange ending at Pokéstar Studios can get that Pokéstar shine. Try Brycen-Man returns, I managed to get my Sableye like that.

    Currently W9-L4, just lost against a guy with a goodstuffs team (I hate those teams, they're all the same!!!) who defeated me out of a little hax and misprediction... I missed will-o-wisp, his Garchomp had the right berry, I missed a Megahorn, his Thundurus survided with 2% HP... bah Better luck next time.

    got rq'd by some guy in the 1700s..-_-

    on the other hand, me beating the guy in the 1900's brought me up by 40 points.

    Oh man, I'm really enjoying this tourny. So far, I've got 3 wins, one loss. And that loss was against a very tricky team that I still enjoyed fighting.

    Even with my last-minute team, I'm doing relatively good.

    Yeah, just completely stomped someone with 1756 and he RQ'd as well D:

    manectric one shot that alternate form landorus with HP ice (yay scarf manectric) kept cress useless with fake out, switched, spored ferrothorn until I could get a switch into manectric again to flamethrower it, absorbing rotom's lightning meanwhile. Basically he got like, 2 attacks off the whole while before he RQ'd. (silly people RQ'd cause a rainless rain team smacked around his OU's)

    I am curious now, I recall friends saying it counts your win if someone RQ's against you witht eh B/W2 revamp? Along with the age bracketing (IE, the junior, senior, master deal)

    edit: just throwing this video on here from the next match. This guy was cool unlike above RQ'er, anyways. When people assume you are going to use the weather

    even more edits: well, next time my points updated after that RQ, they went from 1556 to 1583. i know the only other match I played my opponent wasn't worth that much, so :X dunno. Anyways, it's passed. Recharging my DS at 7-0

    ^ Apparently it still doesn't count for a win.

    Good for you!

    Me, I can't even get up to 1600...either my team sucks or I'm just not good at battling.

    Man, I wish I had more time to throw this team together...besides Bronzong, Rhyperior, and Gyarados, it sucks.

    Well, at least I haven't dropped under 1,500.

    Didn't look like I'd beat him after I lost 2 pokémon early on due to a miss and crit, but I managed to get a MoxieMence sweep going after I set up a tailwind with Latios. I've been hesitant to use that strategy before because it involves 2 dragons on the field, but it worked brilliantly.
    Nah wasn't Ruben, that's what I thought at first. (Hate that guy!! so arrogant at UK VGC's)
    Had a mixed bag of results tonight, started with 4 losses in a row, then had 2 RQ's in a row when winning. (I called GRIM who forfeited then RQ on the saving screen, what a ****)
    Finally got my winning streak going with 5 wins including a brilliant battle against someone called Adam with a ranking in the 1700+, it was really really close but I somehow pulled off a win and he took it graciously (I saved the video, will post at some point)

    I'm battling KuzKan right now...he uses a Sunny Day team, I'm using a Hail team...

    Obviously, I'm getting my butt kicked.

    EDIT: Just lost. Well, at least I took out his Darmanitan before his Victreebel killed Mamoswine with Leaf Storm.
