    Well, to be fair, you should of prepared for all the legendaries before hand.

    It's kind of silly to complain about them. If you didn't use them yourself, you should of seen it coming.

    Just won my first match for the day. I was owning the dude so badly and my predicting was pretty good so I decided to be nice and let him get a kill in. Current streak is 16-10 or 15-11 (after the battles registered completely it was one above what I thought it was, so I either have 11 losses or 16 wins.)

    I just lost a battle because of a dumb misclick....I used Aura Sphere against a Mewtwo. This guy didn't even have a score of 1600....I think he just entered the tourny, but this means my scores going to take a bit of a blow.

    Someone named Ross (with the "male" sign on the end) is battling me right now with a Dragonite, Breloom, Dewgong, and Spiritomb.

    Dragonite just used Wing Attack on my Cradily.

    Uh...what?

    I gotta say, I'm doing pretty well, but the last couple battles were against lower guys. Anyways, I should break the 1600 now that I just won this battle. Current streak running 18-10 or 17-11.

    I just lost my Giratina to a paralyzed Articuno that was using Sheer Cold....

    Yeah, a lot of people here are not very competitive....I get a feeling that most competitive players were reluctant to try something other then singles or VGC.

    Hahaha not in my experience. It seems like there are a lot of players that have very well thought out Ubers teams. :P

    Oh no, I wasn't complaining about the legendaries! On the contrary, I accept a challenge, to see if my team can beat them. No my focus on it was because I have a slightly greater sense of pride in beating a person using legendaries, but as half of my battles have been ragequits -_-. It just stings a bit wasting the time to do battles, especially with people who have clear advantages over me, to ragequit. I hope Gen 6 fixes this.

    To give a sense of perspective, out of 90+ battles I've done, Gamefreak recognizes 45 as having been completed. That is utter stupidity. I suppose I'm not getting my berry...

    Was Japan even entered in this tournament... or did I fight someone who was too impatient to wait for the English release?

    I just fought someone who had a Dialga that knew Roar of Time, and also used Flamethrower despite being in Kyogre's rain...yet they had a score of 1792.

    So, in other words, I just beat the second rage quitter I've come across so far. Roar of Time? Really? Especially in a rotation battle? A free calm mind boost for my Giratina, that was all it was...

    Well, I've got my 100 battles in, so I guess I'm about done. I believe my rating was about 1517, which is actually the highest rating I've ever had in these tournies. And I got a ton of BP to spend.

    I'm thinking I did pretty well this one.

    My card might say I'm from Japan. You should know it's me if you see someone named Kyouhei. As for me though, I just lost a close game to someone in the 1700s, my current streak should be 18-11 or 17-12.

    Roar of Time isn't exactly any different then Outrage in a rotation (though at least with OR your doing damage) but yeah. I fought a Kyurem-W in Rain that spammed Fusion Flare... unforunately for me, I played that battle all wrong (like a good number of my loses) but I do give credit to all my opponents, even the ones who heavily relied on the Ubers tier (which is also fair enough given there basically was no rules)

    Nope, it was a Rain team user (Kyogre, Zekrom, Keldeo-R, and I believe Mewtwo, can't remember the last one) All I know is I misplayed the match where it came down to my Physical Genesect vs CM Keldeo-R with Water Gem (in Rain) <- OVERKILL XD

    At least, for me, Outrage is a good finisher if there is no steel types or high defense pokemon like Groudon left(just like in singles!), but Roar of Time leaves you utterly helpless.

    Like, half the battles I've won ended with Black Kyurem sweeping with Outrage after Murkrow used Tail Wind.

    I just encountered my second rage quitter. He was in the 1700s and had a Genesect, Black Kyurem, and Mewtwo. M2, Genesect and Black Kyurem were paralyzed, and I just healed using rest on my Rest Talk Giratina and then he quit. Gotta say that ticks me off, anyone else encounter this guy?

    Did you catch his character name? We could report him for unfair play. Current Streak: 18-12 or 17-13

    Unfortunately, no. Wished I did (would've been a good one to film)

    In-game correct, but not Legendaries. It's possible they weren't, but a lot of people don't use them, or were able to get their EVs dropped and start over with EV training. It's really hard to say whether or not they were EV trained or not. They're not really that different from a regular Pokemon.

    I just lost to a non-uber team. It did have Terrakion, I didn't bring Giratina, and as soon as Tail Wind had ended, Abomnasnow finished my Murkrow with Ice Shard, and I was at Terrakion's mercy...

    They weren't even all that good. Assuming I'd do the same thing again if they used protect and running Rock Slide over Stone Edge for some reason...

    But most in game Legends are around LV 40 while most distributed ones are LV 50 or higher.
