    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
    i used a thunderbolt on a suicune and it didn't do even a quater of health and also i was 4-2 up and lost againts a kingdra and seismitoad with a torterra snorlax-knows thunder, latias -knows thunder and regice who knew blizzard and thunder bluddeh kingdras

    @zachmac yes inner focus on nite for doubles is VERY common for a lead.
    I'm gonna have to work on a better team for next time. Mind you these guys are going well. Much better than last time but I'm still mid 1500 with near 50 battles.
    Not gonna lie I've played dumb in some cases and lost focus in others. I love these tourny's cause you get to use the pokes you like and not always OU pokes.
    It is a pain to see the same pokes over and over again. Good stuff and Sand suck

    Well, my rating just fell under 1300, and despite that, I'm still battling. Mostly because this is a quicker way to get BP than by grinding it at the PWT/Battle Subway. Maybe I'll stop when I hit 100 battles, but until then, I'm just going to keep racking up BP regardless of my rating.

    So... Many... Cresselia's!!!!! It's no longer about my ranking now it's all about how many battles I can get in. I'm shooting for at least 20 battles tonight! Maybe I can beat my old record of 60 battles. Also why does the move command time have to be so low!? That makes it much harder to think calmly and try to predict your opponent's moves. What is it? 30 seconds!? And don't even get me started about phone calls! In random match you get a nice 2 minutes to select your moves now I understand they want to keep the tournament at a steady pace but 30 seconds goes by so fast and naturally your rushing. How can you stay calm and concentrate when your in a freaken hurry!?

    The numerous Cresselia makes me want to use Weavile, to prevent its Trick Room and probably bait switch-ins... and I just got disconnected against ユミ who had around 1495 points, I could tell from that red Wi-Fi icon.

    Just had a funny match against AUSTIN, who lives in Maryland and had 1501 points with just my Ninetales and Mudkip.

    Thus far I'm in the high 1600's, with 40-15 win-loss record. Could add another 6 wins if it wasn't for disconnectors, but oh well!

    Made my target of getting to the 1600's tonight. 8 wins on the spin did me the world of good
    Tomorrow the target is 1650, if I get to 1700 I shall call it a day as I reckon that'll get me some Championship points (although I'm wondering how this will work for UK players? and when is our VGC gonna be???)

    So there's still tomorrow and the day after that for this tourney, right? While it's been fun and I want to continue battling, not sure I'll get any more in today. So far record is 2 wins and 6 loses I think.

    Wow, ok, guess they just took long, almost two minutes per turn. I think they might have been new though because seemed to keep using same moves, one of which didn't do much at all towards the end (was archeops, so maybe it's defeatist ability and Terri's intimidate hindering its earthquake?). Also weren't doing to well sadly.

    Got a good 15 battles in today not including the RQ'ers (which were every other match) My rating is currently 1502 I should quit but I'm gonna stick it out to the end even if it means my rating may go below 1500. I just battle for fun I don't believe in status.

    Just had a great battle against someone in the 1400s range. The battle pretty much would have gotten my rating into the 1700s or lower it further into the 1660s. There was some hax, but I managed to play around it. The final fire blast miss pretty much won me the game :3

    if you're interested, here's the battle: 81-97441-57634
    The game is a pretty good example of how small hax can really change the game.

    ranked 1702 right now, and I'm hoping I can make it to 1800s by the end of the weekend :3

    By the way... be sure to use proper internet connections, guys. Someone just beat me in a battle and then d/c'd :/

    Oh, and is it just me or is this tournament a lot harder than the ones in the past?

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
    I'm sorry but I don't believe you here. If your wifi cuts out when you move then why are you moving while on your DS? Also you suprisingly disconnect when you're about to lose. How do I know? You did it to me.
    If you honestly have wifi problems then why are you playing in the tournament with the problems? Not helping you or people you dc on, like me.

    because maybe he wants to have some fun and play while he can...
    he isnt diconnecting on purpose, if he did that why then not disconnect in other matches where he would lose lots of points?
    it just happens man, chill a bit we are here to have fun
    the weather in our country is pretty bad right now so that could be one of the reasons he DC'd aswell
    it happened to me aswell, i got disconnected from 2 matches already and in one of them i was winning 4-1 and it really sucked but if we stop playing because of the weather or because sometimes we might get DC'd then we wouldnt play at all :/

    Just got spanked by someone running Shiny Metagross, Shiny Kingra, Shiny Politoed and swift swim combo. Shoulda see that coming with all the water pokemon. Wish i selected my trickroom Reuniclus because i leveled it to 100 just for these situations >.>
    My Hydreigon is really letting me down, I should have given it Choice Specs. I'm losing so bad because it gets totalled before I can use it even with 313speed.

    I do know that it's meant to be fun and I do have fun...when I'm not DC'd on (intentially or not).

    Just think of it from my point of view, DC's rack up and that increases the dc rate...meaning it could lead to disqualification. Oh what fun that'll be right . It's just convenient that the connection is ok through the entire battle and then just at the end when you win....the connection goes then.
    But yeah whatever right
    If it was out of his control then ok, but no one truly knows apart from them

    yeah i know what you mean, and yes it really costs people alot when others RQ on us but its kinda unfair think that everyone does that on purpose just because we get that alot :/

    Well, starting my run for today. I'm probably going to go above 100 battles in total, because I want me some more of that sweet BP. And also it's fun battling people who actually have enough creativity to not use goodstuff teams. XD

    Starting my run up again for a bit. It's nighttime, and I'm super tired, but I'll deal. Super excited to get some more battles in.

    That said, I'm doing alright this time. Probably my second worst Wi-Fi tourney ever, but I mean, my fault really. I started team building late, and I didn't get as much practice with the team as I'd wished. I already have some new ideas that will hopefully be much more helpful in the future. I'm breaking 12-11 right now.

    I haven't seen many DCers though, thank goodness. I'm really happy about that. I also have seen a lot of Rain, a lot of Tundurus-Therian. Not too hard to handle though, but I have to play smart.

    Whew...this battle was a close one, but it was pretty good (aside from Tyranitar and Ludicolo being present).

    Video's here if you're interested: 24-20774-80864

    ...is it bad that I'm writing down all my battle video numbers in a MS Word file? XD I guess the VS Recorder just doesn't have enough space for my liking.
