    Gratz on making it to Orlando.

    And I agree with the 'Another one, that's stupid' about the critical hit you talked about, because I completely agree with you.

    Does anyone else know if Dynamic Punch hits through protect in PBR? Because then zerowing lost since neither of his Dynamic Punches hit through the enemy protect :(

    No, it's a glitch only in PBR.

    Wow, that's cool. I wish I could have gone and met up with you, Pulse, Syb, and Lexite, but no, I was on vacation. Damn vacation. :(

    Oh well, sounded fun, although neither Pulse nor Syb were very satisfied. :P

    Nice mysteryman, I'll be sure to keep an eye out for you.


    And about the Dynamicpunch glitch, maybe it's a glitch in d/P and in PBR they fixed it? Only Platinum will tell. :p


    and tridarksouls, it's at the nationals that2-8 iirc get special DS systems. I'm not sure what they mean, but you can be sure that I wll get in top 8 there to get one of those DS. :p

    good going. I was confident you'd do exceptionally well!

    as far as the finals went, I was a little confused as to why they set it up the way they did, with the moves being broadcast to the audience and all. viewing the other player's team before the match is a little wacky when you only have 4 Pokemon, too.

    And for the record, rain dance teams tend to do well in doubles. I thought the champion's team was pretty neat, actually.

    Nice job on the warstory. In my experience, pictures make it easier for me to read, so that's something to think about.

    Congrads on making it through to Florida. I'm really surprised that Rain Dance Team did so well (the one Zerowing was facing) considering he only used Protect and Surf throughout the whole game.

    Yes duck, his team was crafted exceptionally well. and haku, the champion's team WAS the rain dance team. >_>


    I was at first really surprised that a rain team made it, but after looking at his team and how it was made I'm not surprised that he won. It was a good team.

    Very well done.

    Also, it made me laugh when the kid used Follow Me in conjunction with Protect.
