    Don't let battles like those stop you from playing...
    It really is the game... somtimes the luck is leaning a bit to your opponents and sometimes it's leaning toward you. The thing is you just shouldn't let it get in the way of playing more games, and enjoying the game. I mean, I started the tournament in the 1400s because of freeze and flinches, but I managed to get back what I've lost. I'm at around 1650 right now.

    But... I really want to hit atleast 1850 by the end of this tournament.

    Oh, and I had a pretty good battle against someone from South Korea. He was ranked >1700, and took the loss, so I'm assuming he is a pretty great player. Anyway, I'll try to compile a bunch of my battle videos :3

    Has anyone else been getting a communication error message that crashes you out and freezes your ds? I've had two now, which has meant two 1 hour bans when I haven't actually done anything wrong.
    Both times it's happened just after I've plugged in my ds to charge when it's started flashing red, but I wouldn't have thought that would have anything to do with it??

    I've got some internet errors too... don't know if it goes towards the DC rate, but I won't care about making it to the rankings. This tournament is going the wrong way in any case xD Stupid Tyranitars...

    Anyone know when the next tourny is?? I want to out a better team together and of course team building is always slow for me.
    Having fun in this one at least I'm being competitive in this one. DS froze last night after a win. Stayed locked up for over a 1/2 hr so I had to hold down the power button for it to close

    Right now, I've hit a horrid number on Rank Points (between 1300-1400) because some reason, the Opponent seems to get all the critical hits... Without Serene Grace, Super Luck, High Crit Ratio, Focus Energy or Razor Claw. Before, A Cresselia froze 3 pokemon and that thing never has Serene Grace and all of them couldn't even thaw out... I feel seriously offended by this.

    I just lost because someone I was fighting had an inner focus dragonite. INNER FOCUS.

    Is fake out really so common that people are willing to give up multiscale?

    I lost 2-0, where if I handled that Dragonite early in the battle, it would of been an easy 3-0. This guy also wasn't very familiar with Aggron's base 180 defense, and had to learn it the hard way...I don't really think I deserved that loss. Oh well...

    But honestly, after all that work and team improvement, I can't do any better then in the last tourny. I'm still floating at around 1500, which is exactly what happened last time. I'm going to have to practice on a simulator for the next one. It's frustrating to do all that work and have nothing to show for it.

    This tournament is being weird so far for me... I got 5 wins in a row, then I went into a losing streak, even losing to some 1400s (that presented nice teams and strageties, congrats to them) and by the end of the morning I had a ratio of 10-9. Now, got 6 more wins in a row, that could be 7 but when I defeated a guy in high 1700s he disconnected, and I'm at high 1500s again. Only hope I can keep up and get close to the 1600s.

    If anyone here battled me and I got disconnected, sorry, my WiFi can't reach the entire house with good signal and I forget about that sometimes :X

    Yikes. I've really got a lot to learn if I'm ever going to get a half decent score in one of these tournies...I'm tired of coming just to embarrass myself.

    And I was doing so well when it started, to.

    I think I battled someone who wasn't playing, but rather let the timeouts determine entering team and moves.

    I hate rage quitters. I was destroying a Tyranitar and Garchomp w/ a Sableye and a Scrafty, guy got so mad he was going to lose. And he had a way better rating than I do, now I know why.

    I burned someone's Tyranitar and Paralyzed his other with Slaking's Body Slam, during the move's execution, my WiFi signal on my 3DS went Red. this was the first go and I get Error 91010 because they (the server) felt like it Xp. I wouldn't mind, that was coming to a good start D=

    If you let time out, I noticed pokemon don't attack at all. I didn't pay attention and I didn't make any move, the opponent got a move in though.

    Well...I still dislike the rating system. I can live with it, but it's annoying how I lose points for winning some matches and gain points for losing others. For instance, I just beat someone who had a lower rating than I did...and I lost about a dozen points because of how the rating system is constructed. It makes very little sense to me, but I can probably live with it.

    I'm also sick of goodstuff teams, but that's a story for another time.

    EDIT: My rating is currently 1337. I'm almost tempted to quit now, just to keep that rating. XD

    I've noticed the ratings seem to be a lot lower than the Winter Challenge, and I'm not coming across that many high rated players. (might just be getting lucky)
    Just 4-0'ed a fully shiny team which was nice
    I'm at 1558 at the moment, hopefully get to the 1600's by end of tonight.

    Im about to quit im tired of my moves missing UGHHHHHHHHHhh
    Edit- My recent opponent was such a d*ck. First here i am with a 1598 ranking against his 1888 ranking and he brings the stupid goodstuff teams. Then i fight a long and annoying battle with excellent predictions on both sides. When luck FINALLY smiled down upon me, he decided to forfeit. That's fair, right? Just as it was sending data, at the very last moment, HE DISCONNECTS. TLDR, I fight an annoying battle, he rragequits while the tourney was ranking my would be win. He denied me of a great battle video, denied me of so many needed ranking points, and now i dont know whether this will count against him because he dc'ed right as it was sending data. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhh! His name was Miguel, and he had a Tyanitar, Scizor, Cresselia, Hydreigon, Garchomp and Thundurus.

    This battle made me feel a little better about my prediction abilities. If you're interested, take a look at the battle video: 62-87644-01745

    Words cannot describe the joy I felt when my opponent's Explosion fainted ONLY the Pokemon on his side due to my Altaria's Protect and my Cofagrigus' Ghost typing. XD

    Finally got above 1500 after 18 matches XD oh jeez this tournament has been ahting me. Doesn't help it's being mean making me pick on some 1300's :/

    73 98755 12855 Guy actually beat me just before. Fun amtches, shame you can't go straight 2/3 matches XD

    Not one of mine, and probably done before, but seeing this used int he tourney, epic troll is amusing
    26 39850 52923

    Couple more wins. A DC (lucario and weavile vs my 'croak and manectric, he DC'd after first round when 'croak FO'd weavile, probably breaking sash and lucario almost dead. bone rush only hit twice for about 40 vs manectric. And alson one loss that made me go ugh. one of those 'his cress is at 30% and he just saw me use sucker punch, surely he won't attack" so i go after his other poke. Ended up he attacked with cress anyways. Would have won easily if I just sucker punched.

    yay switches 37-83434-37678
    Shame his scrafty was just a bit faster, would have been fun to encore him into fake out.

    Will probably do more after dinner and DS recharges.

    I really hate my luck,,
    I can miss my hydro pump and hurricane 3 times in a row,, while my opponent's hydro pump hit in 1st attempt,,
    and the my opponent easily snapped out of confusion,, only in 2 or 3 turn's while none of them damage to their self,,

    pokemon battle is always fun,,
    but RQ is a really2 big mood killer,,
    it's frustrating + it's a chain reaction...
    hopefully they soon will be able to decide the RQer loose the match,,
    It's really frustrating while you win 4 times in a row but all got RQd..
    and loose the 5th match,,

    hoping everybody having a good time,,
    and we'll getting a better online battling system soon,,,
