~ 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.

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

Rey did have a tougher route though.
Lol, fun because both pana and me were joking with the possibility we could beat the LC Forumers and make it to the finals.

GL Pana! Ill catch you on! (Fuck, why do i have to keep battling my Team Trials partners).


I'm your rational mind.
