    Okay... how does Victini survive a Rock Gem Boosted Hidden Power Rock with a V-Create Drop in stats? I know Accelgor doesn't get STAB, but it's Special Attack is still isn't something to joke about

    EDIT: For probably the first and only time I will do it purposely...I disconnected. Childish, yes, necessary, yup... that'll teach you for abusing the non banned legends. Like I said, it's fine if you carry 2-3 tops or your just concerned about what happen in the rotation tourney, but when your in the high 1800's with a full team jam pack with all the broken legends in the from Unova in the game (minus Zekrom due to it's shady typing and movepool), that's when I cross the line. His team was Genesect, Tornadus-T, Reshiram, Zekrom, Terrakion, and low and behold, Kyurem-W

    Oh man
    Just had a good battle with someone called IsraVGC from Mexico with a rating of over 1800.
    Came down to final turn his Keldeo (full health just entered battle) against my Thundurus (7HP left). I wasn't sure how he was set up and knew I was dying if I got hit so took the risk that I was faster and went for Discharge . . I went first took his Keldeo down to minimal red HP and paralysed it, but even with fingers crossed it wasn't enough and he surfed me away.
    Lol, now I'm regretting not having Thunderbolt over Discharge (but my Thundurus is set up for doubles play) otherwise that was a win (as long as no RQ lol)

    Oh yeah and I couldn't upload the video either so must be something with the lvl 30 thing.

    That's the default team of almost every player in this tournament, fortunately my team has counters for all those pokemon including Keldeo.

    EDIT: @MSK I battled this IsraVGC too and lost as well, his Keldeo is too sturdy, you can't take it out with just one SE move.

    Cocky much dude... I don't need legendary Pokemon for a winning record, but I'll admit my prediction's have been off recently. I'm basically winning out of sheer luck

    Just lost to someone called Vale with a shiny Lucario, they beat me on final turn and as I was sitting waiting to take the loss and feeling annoyed I was going to take a drop in rating as they were a lot lower than me they DC'd. I'm sure it wasn't me as my connection has been perfect all day today and when it came back on I was hoping they'd still get the win but it dropped me back to the Disconnected from Wifi screen.
    So apologies to you Vale because you deserved the win and I'm genuinely sorry for you as I hate it when it happens to me. (still a little part of me is glad I didn't lose my rating!! lol)

    I don't mind losing, I've been taking everyone one of them, but when I saw that one team, I just couldn't do it... Either way though, it's not like I take these tournaments seriously enough (again outside on this one moment). My connection has been spotty today though, I had like three DCs before even getting to the opponent screen

    How are those disconnections gonna affect the final rating at the end of the tournament? As far as I know a certain amount of DC's may result in penalties.

    no points get deducted, and they dont get disqualified unless they do a large amount of them. you need a 20% ratio (usually) or lower to get into the final standings. also, when you do it to someone, it goes on there DC record also... which nintendo can't seem to fix

    From what I can tell, despite all the DC's MSK seems to get every tournament, results seem to always be the same for everyone else. I've only ever been disqualified once (and I'm not even sure how considering I rarely ever got DC'ed against). Also from what I know, those screen DCs don't count as no battle took place

    well... i kinda made a top threat list... which is actually completely accurate which i posted a link to here... which many people blindly disregarded...
    also 1850 points gives me cocky rights...

    Touch wood only had 2 RQ's that counted against me so far!!! (raises eyes to heaven and prays he hasn't just jynx'd himself!)
    I think it's probably because my legend's aren't shiny, everyone seems to have a dislike of my all shiny teams in the Ranking Tournaments

    I've only been disqualified from one tournament so far (which unfortunately was the one I got the highest ranking in) because I've kept on battling til I get my DC rate back under the 20% threshold, even if it meant my ranking suffered

    EDIT: Damn it!! Just lost to an extremely bulky Throh that used Bide against my Choiced Genesect and shrugged off 3 Thunderbolts to KO me, there goes my ranking points. Yep 1692 down to 1667

    I am getting sick of these idiots with Keldeos left and right! I can not even attack without getting my team wiped out and it is getting on my last nerves. I can not wait to the June Friendly to start because then all legendaries are banned again and I want to see how many of these fools rage quit the moment without having Keldeo or any of the legendaries on their team, they are going to get crushed! If they do this kind of event again, all legendaries need to be banned! Sorry, I really need to vent here!

    Lol, calm down AxelWolf you'll do yourself an injury!!
    Keldeo isn't too hard to take down if your prepared, you just need a fast Electric type. Thundurus or Genesect will destroy Keldeo. Or a bulky Psychic with Trick Room to turn it to your advantage.
    I do agree there are a lot of Legendaries on show in this tourney but as many others have said they can all be countered pretty easily.

    EDIT: Think I've just seen a hack. Sawsbuck with Giga Impact?? I'm sure it can't learn that?? Still beat the person (Black 2 - No location) and they took the loss so no harm. Can anyone confirm, thanks

    I've been having some great battles today and even beat a few trainers with a 1600+ rating! There's just one problem... Everytime I try to post a battle video I keep getting the message (There appears to be a problem with the Pokemon in the video) is anyone else experiencing this issue? Wait a minute... Now I get it! TPCI doesn't want to see there main profits the Legendaries get bested by average Pokemon!! Yeah that's it! They don't want the fans to think less of the Legendaries! Well allow me to recite an old saying I used to say when I first joined the forums.... REAL TRAINERS DON'T USE LEGENDARIES!!!

    Wow! I had a very lucky battle against a user who used Keldeo, Genesect and Black Kyurem. First, I was VERY lucky during the first battle when the user's Keldeo missed my Arcanine with Hydro Pump which then I got Keldeo's HP down close to KOing it with Arcanine's Wild Charge but Keldeo took my Arcanine out. Which then I brought out my Lucario which after using ExtremeSpeed, I took out Keldeo then Lucario got their second Pokemon, Genesect down to half before getting KOed so I brought in my Gliscor which took out Genesect. Their final Pokemon was Black Kyurem which the fool keep using Fusion Bolt which does nothing to Gliscor due to being a ground type which then I finished Black Kyurem off with a nice Stone Edge. Glad the user didn't RQ but I know they have to be pretty shocked and annoyed that I managed to beat their legendary team. :P

    Plummeting!!!
    More losses and down to 1620's
    Question is, should I keep fighting on in the hope of getting back up, or should I quit and take a break to regroup and try again tomorrow?

    Haha I'm still hanging around the 1500 mark. I was seriously underprepared for this comp. It's my first one after all.

    Well I dropped to 1586!!! so I just took a break for a while.
    Came back and first match against TRD from Indiana at 1660's, got a massive win with final hit and he took the loss so fingers crossed that'll boost me back up.

    DS froze on me so I have to wait the hour out. Got stuck on looking for opponent screen.

    Yeah, I know I'm late to be doing this, but I may as well, since I'm participating.

    This is a really makeshift team that I put little effort in arranging. Everything is trained and all, but I initially signed up just for the C-Gear skin. Now that I'm actually battling, I find myself doing rather decent now. My rating sits at 1639 at the moment, with fair luck in most matches. I've come down to losing on a winning turn because of a move missing too many times, though. It's not like I'm relying on Focus Blast level accuracy either. At least I'm fighting comfortably now.
