    I ran into a glaseon last night that knocked out my full HP multi-scale dragon ire in one hit of a ice beam. Don't know what that thing was. Hail wasn't up. Groudon is bulky as heck. But the tourny is ok for now

    Seeing all the legendaries doesn't really inspire me to battle. I was thinking about using three of my elemental monkeys and Max my elgyem, but seeing teams of full legendaries makes me feel like I have no chance.

    I think it great trainers can now use these pokemon because otherwise they might not see much play, but I wish it was like PBR's wifi where you can use anything. Sure, there were full legendary teams there (and I think even the ability to use two of same Pokemon), but it kinda seems like since anything goes, a good share of trainers use what they like instead of cramming six legendaries into a team that might otherwise not see play.

    That's true. I used some that would never see battles due to me not playing Ubers. I do wish I could have gotten some practice in with my team but there playing some-what well. I'm 2-2 so far

    Started off my second day with a win. If you're interested, there's a battle video here: 15-28749-37193

    I'm liking my team right now. I already feel like I'm doing better than I did last tourney, which is a massive plus for me. My prediction skills are actually getting better, which is really helping me.

    How's everyone else doing?

    Being a competitive trainer, and long-time veteran of the game (playing since 1998), I thought it would be good to enter my first wifi competition. I had already heard how there were hackers, but I decided to give it a shot anyways. It wasn't too bad, winning most of my 8 matches with Pokemon from my playthrough of Black 2 excluding ubers, and actually nearly defeating a team of ubers with his last Pokemon of red hp.

    However, it ruins my fun when a player plays with hacked Pokemon as I found out when a team of full hacked ubers used his infinitely fast, non-choicescarfed, non-quickclawed Kyogre without tailwind to outspeed my choice-scarfed Jolly eved Garchomp. Otherwise it's a fun experience.

    It's a shame there are hackers in these games but it is a hard thing to prevent.

    So I was right!!!! Folks have found a way to by-pass the safety check for these.. Or was the check NOT on to begin with?? I've been outdoes and still don't understand how my max-HP spec wall d-night is taken down at full HP with scale still active... And without a boost on their part...

    I'm having fun! Hahah!

    Good battles. Lost my first match (as per usual), but I'm currently 5-1 and these battles are pretty fun. I'm definitely enjoying this fun little format.

    Maybe it's being taken down because 150 base attack or special attack is a common thing in Ubers?

    These guys hit hard.

    ?Could have been 8-8 if one epic win didn't decide to Ragequit. What's with these people and ragequitting? =/ And one just Ragequitted before the battle begun =/.

    What's it getting hit by? remember terravolt and turboblaze ignore multiscale. So if it's a Resh, yeah, you aren't going to survive.

    As for me, AHAHAHA oh wow! 2 more wins, would hve been 4 but oh the rage quitters.

    First one was a rain team that bought a sceptile with toxic, detect, protect, and leech seed. Not sure if he raged cause I 4-0'd him, or his ignorance of game mechanics (protect and detect using the same repeat counter, seed/toxic only damaging if the poke is active)

    second one was against an uber user. Down to just my burned lugia vs his giratina, lugia, and ES arceus. Thankfully his ES arceus was on it's last ES since I finished it with an aeroblast on the swords dance (it was hurt pretty bad) Then just recover and calm mind as I could till I was able to hit his last 2 bulky pokes back. Of course 25 mins later he RQ's when I win (Calm mind on lugia > lightscreen)

    Yeah, I need a break after that. Some lunch, then more matches.

    Was doing good until the major amount of Ubers i ran into I'm good, but not that good.

    So...can I just say that I think Aron should not be allowed in the metagame?

    Here's why: 33-29997-55906

    That thing is insanely cheap, maybe even moreso than the FEQR. In addition, it really defeats the purpose of a battle if your team havs something that's practically unbeatable.

    Anyway...other than Aron (and the overpowered Kyurem-W that I'm currently fighting, which can somehow one-shot every member of my team with Dragon Pulse), I'm enjoying myself in this tourney. My rating isn't bad (a lot better than it was last time), I'm improving my prediction skills, and I have a newfound appreciation of Zoroark. Irritations aside, this is pretty fun.

    ....Well, this is Ubers. You don't ban things when anything is allowed.

    Anyway, a good TurboBlaze or TerraVolt should do the trick.

    Probably the best battle I've had so far, and actually had an opponent who knew how to play rotations. Also, I ended up battling my own Heatran, lol. I was assuming there would be far more Kyogre than I've seen so far, which is why I've got Thunder on Palkia.
