    Yeah, gg. Finally found a battle! Woo haha

    My team really doesn't work against the standard stuff haha

    My two losses were against teams with Volcarona using a different item than I expected, although I did overpredict the first turn too (because of guessing the item incorrectly).

    • My team is Conkeldurr (or really, any Fighting-type) weak, which I realized in Game 6.
    • Ring Target does not bypass Levitate, meaning I could've fit Garchomp into my team.
    • I haven't ran into any intentional disconnectors...yet.
    • I don't know if I want to continue, seeing how crutch my team is.

    Just disconnected by Julius (Mexico) with 1790+ points after winning 4-0. He uses a rain team and disconnected twice against me also in the past International Challenge...watch out

    Protip: If it's obvious that your opponent can't change the weather due to the lack of weather-inducers, or their team benefits from your weather you don't need to protect your weather-inducer that much. 4-0'd some poor sap because I kept killing his other guys while he insisted on protecting his weather-inducer.

    team:goatee 5 wins, 2 losses, 1 disconnect
    team:ee 2 wins, 1 loss

    My 2 losses on team:goatee were due to either a miss or foe barely surviving a turn, so things got haxy there. 1 disconnect the opponent was clearly being swept by super effective moves on them. I don't expect to get much playing time in as I got lots of packing and other things to do.

    Just lost another match, I'm now 7-2. He was Matt from NY, don't know if he's from here, but he deserved the win. I just realized how Infernape weak my team is.

    Now it's too late to change it ._.

    Woohoo... another 15 matches tonight! 2 d/c's, but one of them was my wi-fi acting up :p

    Also, Quintus, what's your ingame name? I've written down my matches, and I haven't come across anybody from Germany who I've 3-0ed.

    All won, no serious hax, so that puts me:

    Wins: 20
    Losses: 0
    D/Cs: 2
    Ranking: 1728

    Three vids today...
    14-97385-90372 - vs Soon (Singapore)
    My first Smogoner match, I have an unwavering fear of any and all Gastrodons - Chandelure is my only check, and he doesn't last long. I was also intimidated by his Hitmontop in team preview (no pun intended), so I have to say I'm quite pleased with myself. GG Soon, I can't remember if there was any haxx but I don't think so, I hope you do well in matches to come!
    79-75220-81884 - vs Ganjah (Mexico)
    I think the first match against what I would call a standard team. I made a slight mistake Thunder Waving Espeon, add that to the amount of crits Ganjah got and I was lucky his Espeon was modest ^_^ Honestly, all it would've taken to beat me there was a timid nature. Learned the hard way, GG Ganjah!
    77-63332-59906 - vs Arley (Columbia)
    Oh...My...GOD...closest match I've ever played. Each turn the tables tipped, and I was constantly left wondering if he - or I - had gained the upper-hand. Adding Gastrodon, Jolteon, Quick Guard Archeops and that blasted Hitmontop certainly didn't help much. I nearly timed out on my command time at one point. A tad of prediction and a large amount of luck (not haxx to clear anything up) allowed me to scrape the game, GG Arley.

    Overall, I've had a great day, despite school. (Well, what can ya say?) May have a bit less time tomorrow, but if I keep this pace up, I'll be walking up and down the top of the leaderboard. Yeah, fat chance, I know.

    I am doing better then expected with my Zoroark + Shedinja team. Sadly, I can't use the combo too much, because lots of people have 3 or more pokemon who can hit Shedinja SE. Other 4 are just normal goodstuf mons, working really good together.

    Here's my record so far:

    Match 1: Spanish, standard Hitmontop, Garchomp, Tyranitar etc. team, disconnected on the first turn (I think genuine connection error)
    Match 2: English, looked like an in-game team but with a Cloyster too. Disconnected after I KOd his last Pokémon
    Match 3: French, another (underlevelled) in-game team, but with a shiny Typhlosion. Disconnected before I KOd his last Pokémon
    Match 4: English, Kanto-only team, WON
    Match 5: Canadian, in-game/underlevelled, won

    Like I said before, I'm using a gimmick team (Alder's six Pokémon) so I get the feeling people feel a bit more insulted at the fact I beat them?

    Hoping to get some more in when I'm not expected to be revising though.

    Yup. Nice team. I'm just recycling mine from the Philly VGC because I'm lazy and can't build a team worth crap.

    Only just started, using a slight variation of my Philly team with.

    Currently 3-0-0. First game I got some misses near the end but a successful double Protect saved my day. Second and third were versus not terrible teams but just average players
