    Ugh, that Skrilex guy is good. This is the second time I lost to him. Oh well. Current streak is running 9-7.

    I just had a near-fatal encounter with an Emolga.

    Stupid flying rat thinking it can out-preform my Murkrow. Pfft.

    I got a crit against their T-tar, but Genesect could of taken a hit anyway, so I don't think it mattered. Kyurem could of finished it even if it wasn't a crit.

    Edit: Battle video is 41-55344-03737.

    Just had a fight against my first trick room team. It didn't have any Ubers, but a Gastrodon's Blizzard froze my Giratina, and that made it a lot harder then it should of.

    Wow, just had my first RQer after I won this match. He was probably angry at how he played into 95% of my predictions. Since that probably didn't get enough time to count (was at the saving data part) my current streak is 11-8 (but should be 11-8 if it weren't for that RQer).

    I just had an extremely annoying loss. My foe's Dialga had used Trick Room, and Palkia started hitting first, so I assumed their whole team was minimum speed. When I reversed the Trick Room with Dialga, I thought it was an opening for my Kyurem to start outraging.

    Nope. Neither her Arceus nor her Kyogre were slower then Kyurem. And, judging by their base speeds, Kyogre must of even been running speed EVs to outpace Kyurem. That battle would of been a piece of cake to, if the team had been running full trick room.

    I encountered one rage-quitter (or just someone who quit) so far. Team had Ghost Arceus, Shiny Origin Giratina, Shiny Spiritomb, and something else.

    I'm looking for an old piece of art I requested on here years ago and lost. It was a brown-haired girl with a pink wristband riding a Torterra. If you think you have this picture saved or have seen it somewhere please let me know and send it to me.

    Just finished an 12 minute battle. I ended up winning after my staller Giratina finally decided to use Outrage from Sleep Talk to get rid of his White Kyurem. Before I had to actually chance it and use Outrage to get rid of his Latias, that move almost cost me one of the best Pokemon I had then, Giratina. Luckily I was able to snap out of confusion and burn when I hit the red by using rest, sleep talk thereafter used Outrage then I switched to my Victini for Fire Gem V-Create STAB against his Genesect to finish the match.

    Just lost against a team with Speed Boost Blaziken...one that somehow one-shotted my Darmanitan, Cradily, Zoroark, and Kyurem-B with one Hi Jump Kick each.

    It kinda sucked.

    Yo, I'm done battling now. The next battle video is 88-74442-00286. Current Streak is 14-10 I believe and Ranking is somewhere in the 1500s.

    I still haven't faced a rage quitter...I get the slight feeling that those who are seeing them periodically are just having poor connection.

    I only found one Rage Quitter. I was winning and he/she had a team comprised of the Lake Trio and they were their last pokemon, used my Judgement from Arceus on Mesprit and they quit since I still had two more pokemon left other than Arceus and he/she had only Uxie and Azelf.

    My mentioned rage quitter ran away, not disconnected.

    Also... does a higher or lower score meaning you're doing better?

    I don't know if I'll make it to 1800, just when I think I'll hit my strive, I fight someone with a higher ranking and go back down. My team wasn't built to win this thing, but it's doing far better then I thought it would, specifically Charizard koing a bunch of of threats, even taking out it's nemesis Volcarona

    I'm in the low 1700's last I checked after 40 matches... better then I've even done in the past (either it's cause I've learned the art of prediction or because I'm getting lucky)

    I saw that battle you talked about the other day with Caturne and Dragonite. That was a pretty decent match (though Hurricane is a bit risky imo)

    I just had a really close battle. I was against a Dragonite, shiny Charizard, and Lugia. I figured I may as well have Reshiram buy time until tail wind wore off, so I could use it again and safely sweep with Outrage. Well, on the last round of tail wind, Dragonite came on Blue Flame and OHKOed Reshiram with Outrage. Dialga took Reshiram's place, and I had Murkrow sacrifice itself to get Tailwind up. Dragonite became confused, and I had Kyurem use Outrage. Since I was almost certain that they'd rotate in something else, I really should of used Fusion Bolt...but anyway, they sacrificed their Charizard and Dragonite to take outrage, and Kyurem became confused. I had Dialga attack Lugia, and as it turns out, it was an EV trained multiscale Lugia. It had taken damage from Reshiram's Dragon Gem Dragon Pulse earlier, and Diagla's Dragon Pulse landed a critical hit. Then, Tailwind wore off again, so I had Dialga used Trick Room as Lugia used roost. Next, I decided to try and finish it with Kyurem with Fusion Bolt, but it hurt itself in confusion three times in a row as Lugia healed itself and started beating it with Ice Beam. Kyurem fainted, and I rotated Dialga back in. I didn't both with trick room. Instead, I started using Fire Blast in hopes of burning it. The first one missed, the second one left Dialga paralyzed, the second and third Fire Blast didn't burn, but the fourth one did. Meanwhile, pressure had been making Lugia's PP for Ice Beam run dry. I set up trick room, and started to dragon pulse. Between the burn and Dragon Pulse, I was doing about as much damage as Recover and Leftovers were healing, though it was a little less. Lugia decided to then attack with Thunder, and brought Dialga down to almost no health. I tried to dragon pulse and finish it, but Dialga was unable to move, and the final Thunder landed....and Dialga hung on with just a slither of health. So little, I didn't even see it at first. Then I managed to pull of one more dragon pulse.

    I haven't had a fight that close in a long time...and I didn't think that there'd be such a large wall of text when I started writing. Heh.

    I just hit 1600, and the prize for best lawlfest goes to Drizzle Perish Song Politoed, it KO'd it at the end, being that trainer's last pokemon. Mewtwo isn't so scary one you slow it down. I defeated more Mewtwo since I got Ferrothorn and Prankster Sableye. Either Thunder Wave or throw an Iron Ball at it, stealing its Life Orb. I'm actually doing well now.

    In rotations, it can just let a team mate finish it.

    Oh, I didn't realize I was fighting someone from Serebii...

    That was a really close one. I would of had Giratina use Shadow Ball and KO Lugia, but after the Shadow Force against Reshiram, I assumed you thought you didn't need it, and I didn't want to risk using Shadow Ball against Arceus.

    But yeah, gg.

    I realized I stopped playing cause the team I had I threw together and I'm very excited that they reached way above 1600. I wish I had more time to team build between tourneys. This one was fun and different. I love rotation battles
