    Question Ubers

    The rules for this competition state that you can use any Pokémon except Chatot.

    Anyhoo I enjoyed this last one. Finished with a 1522 score with a horrible team and horrid playing at times. Would love about a month before the next tourny to plan and train a full team.
    The tourney's registration starts on February 7th, and goes on till the 14th. The next 4 days are just battling.

    That is what I've been told.

    The main reason for not having a 1v1 with 6 pokemon is that it is VERY time consuming. That too, those kind of battles open up for stall teams to come into play. I've been in singles battles lasting 2 to 3 hours before. Also, on a personal note, if I get d/c'd on after playing a 6v6 1 on 1, it would discouraging me to keep playing.

    I actually just got it off of nugget bridge, but I think someone posted the link of the rules somewhere above.

    And, god you're lucky to be going to the regionals. I wish I can go during spring :'(

    Which I do, prior to the English release and I played it further than BW1. I didn't really play Gen V much at the time, until then. Looks like they sorta want to kick it old school by having Singles and Kanto Pokémon. Back then, I always thought Alakazam was a good Pokémon to use.

    If that is indeed the case, then, in theory, shouldn't you be able to trade your Landorus caught in-game to a friend with a reflecting glass, have them turn it into it's therian form, upload it to pokecheck, download it back to your game from pokecheck so it retains it's therian-ness, and then use it to get a reveal glass of your own?

    Yeah, the Kanto only thing sounds very interesting. Kind of a nice twist to gen 1. We've got new abilities, moves, and items that can be used. It'll definately make for a very interesting tournament.

    Not quite... since it requires your ID and TID, you can only receive the reflecting glass through purchasing the AR Searcher. But, I'm guessing you could download the therians that you want from PokeCheck to use, but I just don't think you can get the reflecting glass.

    Why do I have a feeling that there maybe an event in the future to obtain the therian forms? .-.

    Yes but it's rotation battle, so you'll only have one at a time so the old TopOgre combo won't work quite as well.

    Doubt it, will probably be limited to the tournament. If it is though might get some practice in

    Yeah. In fact, it's probably best to avoid that combo. I the ability is something like Intimidate or Drizzle, on the pokemon in the lead spot when the battle starts will get the ability to active. So, you could lead with Hitmontop, intimidate a foe, but not get any rain when you rotate in Kyogre.

    On random matchup and at the Pokemon World Tournament, it's bring six, use four, so you've got one back up pokemon.

    I'd assume it'd be a similar scenario here.

    If it sticks with the way the GBU works you bring 4. For folks bringing weather that pokes has to be in the first slot or switched in. You can not rotate him in and weather come up.

    Oops, I thought a regular Landorus was catchable in B2W2, but apparently that's not the case. Oh well, at least it's a roundabout way to get Therian versions of your genies.

    Hey guys! If you want to talk about the Winter Battle, you should probably go to the Winter Battle thread instead. Just so this thread doesn't get locked.

    Also! Rankings are now up! How'd you all do?

    I did pretty bad. As expected, worst tournament ever for me, despite this being one of the most enjoyable. Ranked 4365. :P

    How did you all do? I'm also about to PM everyone that has a registration, so stay tuned!

    Not too sure if that'll even get me championship points, but I'm happy that I got rated.
