    Ok, so started within the last half hour or so. So far I lost, won, and then lost again. It's nice being with my classic team, I really like them and gettin back in the swin of things.

    Last match was interesting even though I lost, and it was because of a wrong prediction too, but that's fine. Lets see...I brought in Yunowun (my dewott) and Max (my elgyem) to start things off. They started with their zapdos and togekiss. Since Yunowun wouldn't have any type advanage and I wanted to save him for better type matchup(s), I switched him out for Terri (my stoutland) who entered with an intimidating look. Terri took the volt switch that was aimed at Yunowun (which he took pretty well). Out went zapdos and of course tyranitar came out (which is why bringing in Max was a must). Their togekiss used a fire attack on Max while he just started his calm minding. Next Terri's quick claw activated and he launched a reversal which took out about 1/3 of tyranitar's hp. Togekiss launched an aura sphere at Terri taking out the remaining hp and Max was tryin to set up a calm mind, but tytanitar's crunch took out the rest of his hp. Next came out Yunowun again and Psidekic (my musharna). Yunowun set up his swords dance and took, without activating his focus sash, a thunder fang from the dark/rock surprisingly well. Togekiss again used its fire type move on my psychic while she just calm minded. Next turn Yunowun aqua jetted the tyranitar knocking it out and Psidekic put their togekiss to sleep, but not before it took out Yunowun. Here's where the prediction failed, lol. Obviously it's not unheard of to switch out your sleeping pokémon, so I was taking that into consideration and aimed to put the brought out salamence to sleep. No switch out, Psidekic took a shadow claw from the new dragon, put it to sleep, but unfortunatly fell to the burn the togekiss inflicted earlier. So I could have taken a chance with eating the togekiss' dream and who knows where the battle would have wen, but it was definitely one worth mentioning, at least imo, lol.

    Let me just say that my prediction skills are HORRIBLE.

    My last match was against someone who used Escavalier, Ludicolo, Politoed, and Kingdra. At one point, he did Perish Song...and I failed miserably at predicting which Pokemon would be switched, so every single attack misfired completely. Will-o-wisp against a poisoned Kingdra, Hex against a full health Escavalier, etc.

    This is a bad sign, isn't it?

    Don't feel bad.... I don't think anyone really had time to make a good team. I haven't gotten above 1570. It's been tough this time but at least I'm not getting creamed this time. A few dumb moves have cost me

    Well, that was an...interesting...battle. It ended with my losing a stalling match between my Cofagrigus...and a Dustox that was massively buffed by Iron Defense and Quiver Dance.

    This is a bad sign.

    Well, got home from work and decided to get a battle in before dinner. Didn't do too badly, and I uploaded the video if anyone is interested.

    61-27878-71308

    Lickilicky did a stellar job in that one, mostly by just being Lickilicky. It was kind of nice seeing Ninetales, it's been ages since I've seen anyone use them. I might get in a few more bouts tonight. Maybe.

    I reached 1629 max earlier, but now im down around 1570 again and just not battling cuz i got pretty frustrated, so need some cool off time lol. 22-20, what makes it more frustrating is according to my tally i'd be 32-20 if there weren't D/C's. Can't wait until a real solution is actually put into place for that...

    If you have at least 10 matches you can walk away with the rating you have.

    Maybe each battle? I only on 1 of three. Or maybe 3 for each win?

    When did they start doing this, the Black/White 2 wifi tourneys?
