    I just thought i would say this:

    i battled some guy with a score of 500 ish O.o
    his team was actually good, similar to mine
    MINE:
    tyranitar, zapdos, excadrill, latios, cresselia, hitmontop
    THEIRS:
    tyranitar, thundurus-T, latias, excadrill, jellicent, hitmontop

    he was a point bomber, who intentionally tries to kill your score by beating you. he tried against me, i whooped him haha xD

    What a troll. I always wondered if there were people out there who tried something like that.

    Well, I got myself into a more comfortable position with 4-3-1, but I'm too lazy to try much more. I lost a really lazy battle due to not paying attention when my Tailwind wore off, so I'm going to take that cue and stop for now.

    And you can bet these ratings bombers are friends of those who need CP to get to worlds and they're hoping to come up against someone who is also in the running and knock them right down to help their mate.

    EDIT: It's official, I am really missing Ludiculo I took him out of my team for this tournament and replaced him with Breloom. While Breloom is being stellar for me he just doesn't seem to be cutting it as well against rain teams and 5 of my losses have been to rain. Ludiculo always seemed to help me destroy rain teams so he'll have to go back in but I have no idea who to take out now to not lose out in another area Aarrgh!!! lol why can't we have 7 slots

    Damn it
    Just made a stupid error against someone called Volches, I forgot about his tailwind momentarily and instead of protecting my Excadrill for the one turn I needed to then get it back to my advantage I got OHKO'd and ended up having to pray for a triple Protect to stall myself for a win and of course 3 protects in a row isn't going to happen LOL don't mind taking losses when I get outplayed but when I would've swept his team out for a win if I'd have concentrated. Oh well smack myself on the hand and try to get my rating back over 1600!!.
    Seem to be hovering around 1590-1611 so far.

    I just got a Rain team to forfeit (Politoad + Kingdra, backups Thundurus and Volcarona)...what's the deuce do during the saving, disconnects...yeah. He was 1627, I was 1545. Probably the best match I've ever played (with a hint of luck) that I wanted to record...down the drain :C I used my ever deadly Scrafty + Rotom-W lead and had my Rain surprise Lileep waiting from the sidelines. Even in Rain after one Ancientpower boost and prior damage, it still took a Volcarona Bug Buzz. My team seems to emphasize defense as my Rotom-W took a Life Orb Bullet Seed (it was Intimidated of coarse) that hit 3 times from Breloom (Yes I had Sitrus Berry and yes I played stupid and lost that match) (4-1-1) I couldn't even tell you who DC'd because I don't know Japanese, or whatever language it was, or how it was written >:/

    I'M PISSED, I HAD THAT WIN!!!

    (If it was my connection, which seems quite spotty nowadays, then I'm ever more pissed off... but so far though it doesn't seem like it was mine)

    Yes the Lileep has Eviolite. It's best use is in Sandstorm because of the Special Defense Boost, but it can still take a few hits here and there, especially if the Ancientpower boost kicks in. My set is Giga Drain, Toxic, Recover, and Ancientpower. Why have two healing moves? Because when Giga Drain can't help, Recover surely will. That fact this thing gets Storm Drain amazes me, especially how they buffed the ability this Generation

    I'm not much for Stalling, but because of Lileep's lack of power, I don't trust HP all that much. Besides everything I have around it helps out.

    I thought I was over my losing streak but I've just hit another!! Can't buy a win at the moment.
    Plunged to 1550's now. Seems to be lots of Japanese players on at the moment and no one else!! Haven't seen another English player all day.

    Streaks follow streaks, you'll get a win sooner or later

    EDIT: Are Nicknames now seeable? Anyway, it's really bad when a 1427 (or within the 1400s) person is DCing against you...like what just happened to me T^T

    Lol I guess you're right, picked up 2 wins after my last post, but then came up against a 1700+ Japanese player and lost again (sighs heavily)
    That is bad if someone in the 1400's can't even take another loss, and I should know as I had an Emma from Mexico in the 1400's RQ against me earlier!!

    I treasure beating foreign battlers (As in non-English speaking, mainly Japanese) more then any other type of battler. Yeah, I'll lose to them on many occasions, but that win is savoring, especially when their higher ranked.

    Also, I'm noticing a lack of Thundurus-T again...it's seems like it was popular for 1-3 tournaments tops. I guess that goes to show how much people love to rely on Prankster

    Sitting at 1568 right now after 15 matches. 11-3 with 1 DC during data upload.

    Great when two Pokémon with Prankster are out on the field on opposing sides...mind games ensue. Being able to outspeed with Thundurus won me a match when I pretty much shut down an opposing Sableye with Taunt.

    I'm sure speed doesn't always win if both have prankster though. As far as I'm aware it will be random who goes first and each turn after will alternate if you keep using status moves with it.
    Correct me if I'm wrong someone?

    Wouldn't have thought it would be random. Prankster works by increasing the priority of non attacking moves by 1. Taunt and Trick both have a priority of 0 normally, so they become +1. Therefore surely speed would then be used to decide who moves first?

    Maybe I'm thinking of something else? Or perhaps if there are speed ties and both are using the same skill? lol

    Speed ties do exist with moves of the same priority from my understanding. I know that was a fact in 4th gen as my Buizel's Aqua Jet outsped a Tyrogue's Fake Out (back when it had +1 priority)

    EDIT: Second Best battle I've had today, this time no DC, against another high level opponent. Here the battle number: 15-28749-28193
    And oh yeah, guess I got that other battle in that I talked about earlier, just couldn't save it because the guy disconnected but the battle still counted, so that makes me (10-1-3; still counting it as a DC)

    It's surprising how well you do when you don't have high expectations

    so far im doing okay i think im at 1560 or something, but i dont really use musharna that much im noticing so i'll have to swap it for something else later i love to get unsuspecting kills with dark gem sucker punch.
