This run through made me sad, 2 off silver then the Hax which made me chose the alt reered its head, dropped 4 straight to crits/misses. Was a sad day. Still, finished in just over 2 hrs, my slowest yet :( Good fun as always :)

How did you choose your Dark Horse Pokemon for this project? What lead you to choose the Pokemon you did? Did you have regrets or were you happy with your selection?
Well this was my second run through this month, and I didn't really feel like using Landorus-T again so I had to pick something different. My old team for last months DHP looked appealing, although Terrakion was on the team so I couldn't use that team. However that did allow me to get thinking again on how to make a new team that could be supported by Uxie, so I did, and here we are again.
How did you go about building a team for your Dark Horse Pokemon? Which kinds of teammates did you consider? What factors contributed to the team you created?
I used a team very similar to my last DHP team, however Terrakion was obviously changed out. Thankfully he did not play that much of an integral role on the team, so the transition was quite easy. For more on that find my discussion from last month :3
Do you think it is more difficult or less difficult to ladder with a Dark Horse Pokemon? Why? Does the element of surprise play a factor in your battles? Is it easier to fight with a "highly used"" team or with Pokemon that are less common?
Again probably something that can be found in my previous discussion response. I still don't know why more people don't use Uxie, granted it my be overlooked in the fast as fuck, highly powered meta, but its still as good as any utilitymon.
(For Hall of Fame members only) How did you reach the Hall of Fame? Was it easy or difficult? Did having a Dark Horse Pokemon on your team benefit you? What advice would you give to those laddering with Dark Horse Pokemon?
Winning. My team wins, simple as that, so it didn't take all that long. Sadly it did take me over 2 hours to achieve my peak, 2:14 to be exact, but I guess I nearly made silver, rather than just mid bronze, so I have to be happy with that :d Once again, wasn't really difficult at all. Hax happens, but you just push through it and grind it out. With a team like mine that isn't too difficult.
