    About 1440. XD To be honest, the winning streak hasn't been that long, and my losing streak yesterday dropped me from 1500 to about 1398. Now I'm starting to climb back up, but knowing my luck, I'll be dropping back down again soon.

    Barely lost that last match. I would have won, had it not been for a -3 Special Defense Drop on my Gastrodon. Tsk tsk.

    anyone getting near 1800 other than me and drizzleboy (drizzle boy is past that already)?

    EDIT: getting very close to 1800
    i just played a 1707 japanese player, who was running a good, but standard hail room team.
    4-0'd with ease. i played my best in this battle.
    95-10977-24255
    i completely predicted every single move of theirs.

    Not me. I unfortunately just started really playing. I had gotten in 3 battles this morning, and I'm waiting for an opponent for my 5th. :P Being a grown up really sucks sometimes.

    Anyways, here's my battle: https://www.pokecheck.org/?p=search&...d=563828915911

    Eh, I don't care so much about winning the most battles, just more about my improvement, I've done far better in this VGC style tournament then in the other. 3 for 3 this morning with my last battle being the most interesting. I fought a team like that on Smogon, so I knew my opponent was likely gonna attack my Lileep. So I think I finally broke into the 1600s

    Hahah I know! If it weren't for those SpDef drops, I'd have had it. Oh well, that's the way the RNG fell. It was a pretty cool battle too. (:

    I'm not really very good at this game, but it's still fun so I'm okay with it. I don't think I've ever actually battled another real person before this, so it's something.

    i have had horrible luck this is my first VGC tournament and i havent had any experience in double battles at all, so this is pretty much for learning only, im running a pseudo trick room rain team and sometimes i win and sometimes i lose, sometimes i get horribly destroyed though.

    if anyone runs into an Aaron, with politoed,conkeldurr,scyzor,parasect,galvantula and dusclops thats me. i'd actually love some suggestions guys.

    I'm surprised I never seem to battle you guys at all, yet here others seem to have XD

    As for Gastrodon's, they're only scary if you need to rely on special attacks that aren't of the Grass typing, because they're not bulky when it comes to defense.

    Dusclops ah... Anything with Explosion is a suitable partner. Personally, I'd chose Gigalith because of it's Sturdy ability. Slap a Normal Gem on that bad boy and you'll see your opponents HP drop. And Politoed pairs nicely with anything with Storm Drain, like Gastrodon (because it can get Icy Wind). Give the toad Surf and you'll power up your partner while damaging you opponent. Always have Protect/Detect on you Pokemon though, it's good for scouting and defending. Galvantula is pretty good, even when outside of Rain thanks to Compoundeyes, raising Thunder to 97% accuracy. Those are just a few suggestions since I ran a team like that back in the 2011 Autumn Friendly (I think)

    You know the two loses I have (just got one now) were being of my own misjudgment. I hate when people continuously switch out Landorus-T though XD

    Why is everyone else faster than me..?

    I'm certain most of my losses are because my team is so slow :/

    I had someone who used that tactic with a Sableye. It ended by Time Over. Landorus and Cresselia. It ended with it being Sableye vs. Starmie who took Sableye's typing. I lost because it has a last Foul Play

    It's not actually about speed most of the time... all but one of my wins came with me not using TR, yet all my team has practically 0 IVs in speed and no EV investment in it

    Yeah, I ran out of Brine for my own to Burn his before it fainted from Toxic. I just came from an epic battle someone just RQ'd on. Not what you'd expect from a Japanese guy.

    Well, most of my opponents hits have been 1 hit ko's, and so would mine have been if I was faster

    I nearly won my last battle, I left his Garchomp with 1hp with a burn, but then he decided to switch him out. At the end it was just the Garchomp...and if I'd have been faster

    Not true, not when it's Nature and EVs compensate for it. Bulky Gastrodon is meant to compensate that.
