    For the record, I never lost with this team, so I'm a little pissed that for some reason a loss was recorded. Nevertheless, I made it.
    My team
    All based on next big thing pokes, and alomomola because of the lack of vowels. Did 3 of the five sets from NBT, plus two standards sets for NBT pokes.

    Hope you all enjoyed the last challenge but it's time for a new one. :)

    This time we have a fun twist! Basically every Pokemon must be from any generation other than the fifth. Without strong mons like Scolipede, Samurott and Carracosta how will this affect your team-building?

    To qualify for the Hall of Fame, you must attain a Glicko2 of at least 1900 with a provisional of less than +/-100. You have a week from now - good luck!

    ...

    The laddering Gods have just rained down from the skies to declare something (shut up this sounds awesome). They have given user FLCL a different twist specifically for this round (and ONLY FLCL). FLCL may only use 5 Pokemon, and must reach a Glicko2 of 1950, with the current theme in mind (so nothing from generation five). Hard enough for you?? If anyone else completes the normal challenge and wants to complete this too, they are free to, too!

    flcl edit: wtf

    I hope you're all doing well/having fun but I just wanted to ask a question - are you still enjoying these challenges? Are they too easy? Too hard? Send a PM or a VM to either of us with your feedback!
