    Thank you Cormic for not D/Cing on the 3 Moxie triggers I got.

    17-7-9. 1640

    In other news is it bad that I only want to play players that have between 1600 and 1700? the 1800s and 1750s I get paired to DC, and the lower ratings I get no points. :(

    Well I'm officially done with this tournament now. Finished with a rating of 1748 with 51W/16L/12DC (67 battles). I have 8 recorded videos here and my team can be viewed here.

    My team performed as well as I thought it would. However I wish I had Protect over Explosion on Metagross for the most part, and Ludicolo had a major 4-slot moveset syndrome.

    Ah, who am I kidding... I can't read manga when there's a tourney! Can't concentrate!

    Just had an awesome battle with Shnider from None, you're a real class act bro, you deserve a much higher score than you've got! I know I didn't deserve to win that one.

    I've really enjoyed watching all the youtube battle videos that have been posted, I think learning from them will probably help me improve more than being destroyed by good players or beating weaker ones easily

    also: just realized you can fake out a Rotom-W... wish I knew that earlier!! derp

    I have to keep battling to bring my Rating back up. Not like I care, but I feel bad if it's too low lol. It's at like 1530, after I dropped nearly 100 pts, due to some unfortunate choices.

    Playd 3 ~1600 players. All three disconnect immediately after being crushed on the first turn. Humoursly, the last one was a person who luck hax'd me a while back and landed 2 crits on the first turn to squeek a win past me.

    I think that may be a sign for me to call it quits. 125 wins, 13 losses, 28 disconnects.

    Final Rating: 1972

    I have one more battle video to upload (vs flash) and I'll probably post a bit about the team I used later.
