    Guess I should have figured that given your Drizzle-toed (I assume it has Drizzle) XD

    No problem though, if this is your first tournament... heck knows I didn't do well in the first two :P

    Nothing against them.... its just they outplay me by far o-o


    EDIT: nah Shreyas they werent a few months ago
    Wait, seriously? :O

    lol I get outplayed by anyone that has a rating higher than 1600 xD
    That's mostly why I'm having trouble keeping up a strong rating...

    Oh yeah, justing, I'm using Ferrothorn instead of Metagross ;o

    I actually like facing the Japanese players. I noticed that before the Japanese were allowed to participate, these tournaments were "easy." Japanese players, regardless of their rating, all present a fairly difficult challenge. I don't really see a lot of like, in-game teams from Japanese players, while before they were allowed to participate, I faced primarily in-game teams. Sure, it's nice on the rating, but the fact that these tournaments are actually challenging are what make it fun. It's better to face a worth opponent as opposed to facing an opponent who is clueless as to what's happening.

    lol aren't you a Japanese player yourself? xP

    But, yeah I agree. I really like battling Japanese players, and I did see that drop in ingame teams.

    Technically, hahaha. But I'm an American player, as I live on an American base, so I don't identify with the Japanese. xD

    Ugh, 14 battles later, I'm 1518. I don't understand what's up with my team; it was doing much better before. :P

    that is happening to me right now, while I was testing the team I'm using now worked REALLY well on PS and GBU. And then I enter the tournament and I have NO idea what's wrong

    It's the oponents... they are on a really different league from lots of people on PS ><
    I wish there was a server where we could face japanese people aswell like we do it in the tournaments.
    most of people i battle on PS arent that good (aside from the nugget bridge server)
    Its kinda hard to practice with people that dont push us ><
    although... not all of them are like that obviously lol i've faced quite skilled players and it felt great

    Ugh...back down to around 1400's. My team seems to fluctuate between doing well and doing horribly...which is better than solely the latter, I guess.

    Oh wow I'm doing bleh this time around XD below 1500 with, some win/lose haven't really been keeping track. Losing to either a stupid mistake on my part, or oh wow the hax (one match got confused twice, paralyzed, then missed the rock slide,) ah well. Probably going back to rain next tourney.

    drizzleboy12 is in masters( btw there are even more rain teams in that one, and less creativity) and is probably around 1900 now.

    No kidding...
    But. joej m and drizzleboy are pretty good in VGCs, so I'd be disappointed if they are still in 1600s xP

    I'm still trying to work my way up to 1800 and WOW it is HARD. I have no idea how you guys did it, but this is taking me forever...

    EDIT: After this tournament, Joej, you are telling me how you are taking out rain with Chandelure lol

    EDIT2: And, I think my d/c rate is pretty high right now... I think I'll cry if I don't make it to the rating :'(

    I use half rain team, and half to counter sand tems... I see much more sand teams than rain though....
    And also, its getting kinda hard to go with a rain team, it seems too many people already know how to **** people with it, and many people can use rain against you
