    Ahh everybody sorry for the late replies, but if you see a trainer in the seniors division named Oji with a team of Weavile, Breloom, Volcarona, Gastrodon, Cresselia, and Snorlax, that would be me.

    After some frustrating internet connection fails, I finally got in and had my first match!
    It was a total blowout, his Hitmonlee, Scrafty, Machamp and Tornadus vs. my Sableye, Dusknoir, Slowking, and Gastrodon. He never stood a chance, Gastro didn't even have to make an appearance in this one. He started off by bulking up his Scrafty a few times while Sableye worked her magic and Dusknoir set up TR. Then I switched in Slowking to deal with that Machamp and the Tornadus. While Tornadus was in, I had Sableye trick the Choice Scarf away from it. Then when Scrafty started firing off Drain Punches, I tricked the Choice Scarf onto it and switched in Dusknoir, rendering that thing useless. Then he forfeited.

    Here's hoping I can get some more matches in without my internet screwing up on me.

    ...er, I believe I unintentionally DC'd mid-match due to my crappy connection failing.

    That's something of a problem.

    Well, I have been fighting since it started, but I've been caught up in the battles. This team is still not going to be the same one I use to the end, but the changes I had to make are going to be few.

    For one, I gave Cresselia moonlight. And rain dance. And both my Gyarados and Dragonite(hurricane/thunder) rely on it's rain dance. I'll just replace it's sitrus berry and give it leftovers + protect next time.

    After that, I've got nothing to handle Trick Room + Imprison Bronzong or Chandy. I intend on swapping Gyarados for Azumarill later anyway, and I guess I can just have Hariyama fake out the former.

    Edit: Also, I've got a video. I thought I was going to lose this one, but it turned to a PP war, which Cresselia would inevitably win anyway, so my foe actually ended up forfeiting. I thought this was an ironic outcome, since the whole time, I was thinking I was going to lose.

    Yeah, the Aggron is shiny. I got it from and RNGer on Smogon a long time ago, and I didn't have time to breed a Brave one.

    It's also as very ugly in that color...

    Wow, I am absolutely sucking now. -_- Can't catch a break with hax, can't predict a d*** thing, can't seem to do anything right. I think I'm at 1-3 at this point. What a drag. :/ About the only thing that has cheered me up was seeing someone use an Abomasnow. First time in a long time I've seen one of those.

    You still have a few days left, and you'll get into the swing by then.
    hax hasnt proved a problem for me, just those tailwind scizors...>.<

    lost to someone running cloyster..>.<
    4-1-0

    Senior's notes:

    I have been seeing a lot of teams running Tailwind.
    Genies are VERY wide used, along with scizors.
    2/3 of my opponents have been korean.

    i think thats all for tonight, maybe a bit tommorow.

    I don't know, it looks like even if my luck turns my internet will do its best to screw me over. -_- After a couple of failed attempts to connect at all I did get another battle in. I'm now at 2-3, so I guess that's something. I must say, it was pretty nice to take down a Garchomp before it was able to make a move.

    I've only run into 1 scizor so far. It had the occa berry, but it was sufficiently weakened enough for Lickilicky to take it down with 1 hit.

    I've been playing a while myself for the heck of it (so I guess this is my first really 'serious' attempt in competitive wifi?). Gone 10 battles, 7-3. Some teams were pretty ill prepared though (ice beam floatzel?), and I started out with the three losses, haha. One of those had me flinched 3 times... =/

    Well, after 5-6 battles, I almost had my first win. What finally turned the tide?

    Playing Colress' battle music.

    It was going well until the other person DC'd. Sigh...

    Most of my losses have been to teams with movesets I don't think i've ever seen in VGC myself, so idk if i should feel bad for losing to some random strategy or just accept the fact that i was in no shape or way prepared for it lol
    5-6 now
