    Fuck this hax fuck this hax fuck this hax fuck this hax fuck this hax.

    Against a guy named VEXUS, had 3 stars and 200+ Wins. I would've won if not for the fact that my opponent got two flinches off in a row at the very last second. But being an honorable battler, I didn't DC >.>

    I really don't want to play Triples again after this shit, I guess I'll try my Subway team on Doubles.

    Fuck this hax.

    My Team: Starmie, Whimsicott, Togekiss, Blissey, Vaporeon, Dragonite

    Opponents team: Politoed, Metagross, Kingdra, Dragonite, Rotom-H, Amoonguss

    Introduction: Rain versus Gravity+Cuteness.

    My cute little Gravity team goes heads up versus a more regularly used weather.

    This is a great battle versus a seemingly competent Japanese opponent.

    *side note* I know Starmie isn't exactly "cute", but no other Poke can correctly fill it's roll on my team.

    Nickscor - wow, that was harsh.
    Very nice battles Joel.

    Here's a single battle from me where it all seemed to go wrong:

    Me: Lanturn/rotom-g/garchomp/Scizor
    Opponent:Latios/Gyrados/Landourous/Metagross

    Intro: So Im currently #2 on the U.S doubles gbu ladder(would be #1 if it wasn't for this guy beating himself to move up), and well little did I know from 12 midnight to 2 I would be in a d'c fiesta. I finally battle this one opponent who thankfully did not d/c. My teams undefeated right now so I felt confident but it quickly becomes 4-3 and it becomes a match that comes down to the last prediction.

    I have a pretty cool Rotation game here with a couple of killer predictions. They were needed too, against the most over of over-used Pokémon.

    Battle Video#: 57-53008-82504 (8 turn Triple Battle)

    Intro: Usually, I'm battling using Stall, even in Triples, but I got bored and decided to use a team that goes for a lot more fast paced, straight forward approach to battling, but then I met a Trick Room team...

    My team: Hitmonlee, Metagross, Smeargle, Yanmega, Salamence, Gyarados

    Opponents team: Jellicent, Landorus, Heatran, Lucario, Swampert, Hydreigon

    Teaser: At one point, I'm down, 3-1. My +1/+1 Gyarados (in the middle position and not running Earthquake), versus the opponents Swampert, Lucario, and Hydreigon (with Trick Room active).

    Despite my using a speed oriented team (which is again, not usually my battling forte), in the end, I go back to my stalling ways, and make a huge comeback with a 1-0 victory.

    Just because I'm a bit bored, here's a single battle with my good old Reuniclus doing some work. Opponent had a black trainer card and it was pretty close, I guess I only won thanks to a Hustle Extremespeed miss.

    Battle Video #: 77-63332-72886 (Single Battle)

    Me: Sableye, Reuniclus, Mamoswine
    Them: Suicune, Togekiss, Latios

    I am so sick of Latios... I know it's all legal and everything, but I hate coming across all the legendaries.

    My team: Ninetales, Terrakion, Exeggutor, Darmanitan, Cherrim, Tyranitar

    Opponents team: Hippowdon, Hydreigon, Excadrill, Sawsbuck, Galvantula, Ninetales

    Intro: Weather war (but a good one). This one ends dead even at 0-0.

    Thanks for the good battle, "DANNY", from California. This is the first battle I didn't win that I still thought to be post worthy.

    *side note*

    Useless Occa Berry was useless.

    Opponents team: Excadrill, Gliscor, Mamoswine, Swampert

    Intro: A couple very bad misses early in the match, and it leads to the longest Doubles match I've ever played. Had this been VGC, I would have lost to time limit. Also, crits suck.

    Only posting this because this battle because there is a tid bit of knowledge in it I honestly did not know...

    Battle Video#: 93-86274-92632 (12 turn single battle)

    ...Baton Passing to a Poke holding White Herb instantly removes all stat drops the second the Baton Passed Poke comes into battle.

    This happens on turn 5 or 6 of my battle.

    Haven't posted a bv in a good 4 months so heres one from my best of 3 gbu doubles match vs pokemaster:

    BV: 10-80688-31919

    MyTeam:Politoed/amoonguss/Toxicroak/Scizor

    Poke's team:Krook/Mienshao/Zapdos/Chandy

    Intro:Its our final battle of the best of 3 and well it lasted quite long(13 turns). 1st match he won with a terrible matchup. 2nd match amoonguss pretty much sweeps the whole team and I win 2-0 with amoonguss finishing chandelure. 3rd match well ot came down to hax though if I bp+Sp last turn that hax could've been avoided. Nonetheless gg poke.

    A close battle against a RainRoom team (of course, I face Gastrodon after I replace HP Grass on my Zapdos). Explosion is still amazing.

    This topic needs more love posts.

    Battle Video #: 98-68466-03109

    I'm currently taking a break from the Wi-Fi Tournament so I can test out a new team. I forgot Ludicolo could learn Teeter Dance, but it makes sense in context.
