She Bangs! She Bangs! Wow. Thats really stupid. But yeah, at least you got the shirt and to meet some awesome people. Personally, I lost in the semi-finals so I got no shirt and just got to meet awesome people instead. Which, actually, wasn't all that bad. EDIT: Speaking of awesome people I met, take a look-see at this wonderful man who happened to be at the Glendale, CA tournament at the Planet-X in the Galleria. Yes, that is the one and only William Hung of American Idol (and me, giddy like a little school girl)! I was anxious to see what William could do with his Pokemon. He had no Legendaries on his team, which put him at a disadvantage in an Uber loaded tourney, but with confidence he would tell me, "It also takes skill." He ended up being placed in the final battle of the first round, the 16th battle in this 32 man tournament, so the wait was long. Unfortunately, he had apparantly used Action Replay to modify his Pokemon and they were rejected by PBR. He admitted to modifying his pokemon to give them all 31 IVs and thought he would be able to get away with it as long as he had maintained legal stats. He accepted his automatic forfeit graciously with a simple, "Ok, I'll accept that." As for an actual report of the Glendale Tourney (Im not sure if anyone has covered it yet), here we go. The rules were simple: 4v4 Double Battle 1-490 I used a makeshift team consisting of: The opposing 31 teams were mostly made up of combinations of Mewtwo, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Palkia, and Dialga. Other Pokemon were rare. I was unable to handle all these Ubers and lost in the semi-finals. The tournament was finally won after over 4 hours of battling by a man who went with the handle "Psi". He had placed top 4 in a Pokemon masters tournament for the advanced generation in New York (I can't remember the tournaments name). Highlights in the tournament included my younger brother killing 2 Mewtwos with a Metagross Explosion while his Swampert used protect. People tended to cheer the half dozen trainers who didn't use Legendaries, so they went crazy over that. Unfortunately, he still lost when the opposing trainers last pokemon, a Palkia or Dialga, I cant remember which, came in and finished his Swampert with a Draco Meteor, knocking my little bro out in the second round. Even though I lost, I didn't really leave empty handed. I got that pic with William Hung that's going to be great as my Myspace default. Oh yeah, and I met a couple of cool guys there too. EDIT mark 2: The person who beat me, as well as his 3 cousins, were all blatantly using AR. I figured that since William Hung used AR and was not able to battle in PBR, if those four kids had used it to do something fishy they wouldn't be able to play either. I briefly thought about complaining but decided not to. Was I wrong? Could they have changed things in their favor other than stuff I wouldn't mind, like duplicating items and TMs?
