    My slightly more in depth revamp of on-site Little Cup Article (yet to be complete)

    Little Cup Metagame Development Thread

    Little Cup Forums - essentially a collection of the information provided in the above two links with Pokemon analyses


    PM me if you have any further questions


    ~ Both players should save the log but the winner of the battle should send it to me via PM. As I have said, this is to ensure that people use legitimate Pokemon as well as for collecting usages. For this reason, I'd ask the winner to write down their 6 pokemon as they may not reveal all of them in battle.

    Congratulations to ReyScarface for winning the tournament!

    I'm voting for pana, because I always predict against him!

    Rey did have a tougher route though.
