    If you are having trouble finding your opponent, PLEASE let me know so that I can arrange to have that player substituted or so I will know who I need to disqualify when I feel too much time has passed. Most tournaments that I run do not have problems finishing quickly, so I feel no need to apply a deadline. You guys signed up, so put some effort in to get your battles done. Thanks.

    Roger, I've bumped into a few times so I don't think I'll have problems. I have restricted internet at the moment, but next week I am very versatile thanks to finals...just arrange some time to me so I can put it in my schedule. I need to study too.

    My timezone is GMT +1, and I can be on probably at least from 5 to 10pm, not any later than that, possibly earlier. About every day of the week is fine.

    Justin8649 vs. Darkbolt

    DarkBolt beat me but Justin is no pussy.

    Cless vs. Gomez

    Noobster is a little more experienced at RBY I think.

    Lesm46 vs. The Survivor

    cheat pidgeot blahblah

    Pidgeot500 vs. Aeroblacktyl

    MoP does such weird shit, he'll win.

    0_o vs. JMC

    JMC is VERY experienced at RBY UU last time I checked. 0_o's team is very cool however.

    shini latios vs. Steelicks

    how wont fitgh?

    cookkirby vs. Aeolus

    I don't know how well either battles in RBY so I'm taking the one I like the most.

    Jackal vs. Warthog

    One of the matches to watch. Warthog wins so many shit he should win this too, but Jackal will give him a good match.

    zeroality vs. Eagle

    Eagle haxxes with blizzard

    Soujiro San vs. Cerberus

    who?

    StS vs. Fish

    Another great match-up, but Fish was a tough opponent that I needed a lot of luck for.

    Explodus vs. ShinySandslash

    I only know Explodus.

    Atlas vs. peter_pan

    Neither play RBY often I think, but Atlas has more experience.

    Fuzion vs. Loki

    Fuzion is a great RBYer, I've never seen Loki play it.

    Charmeleon vs. Asuka

    tts vs who?

    Predictions:

    Justin8649 vs. Darkbolt - Darkbolt is good, but Justin is better.
    Cless vs. Gomez - gomez more like noobster. Dutch take this.
    Lesm46 vs. The Survivor - he OBVIOUSLY cheats with Pidgeot.
    Pidgeot500 vs. Aeroblacktyl - Pidgeot is one of the best battlers I have seen. Besides that Pidgeot will use a wrapping technique which MoP fears.
    Mekkah vs. 180.Roger - Mekkah is good
    0_o vs. JMC - Match to watch. JMC is good, but O_o is also good.
    shini latios vs. Steelicks - mod fuck!
    cookkirby vs. Aeolus - no clue
    Jackal vs. Warthog - match to watch
    zeroality vs. Eagle - good one
    Soujiro San vs. Cerberus - Dutchies.
    StS vs. Fish - Fish wins.
    Explodus vs. ShinySandslash - :/
    Atlas vs. peter_pan - I am NOT voting Germany fyi
    Fuzion vs. Loki - Loki is good but RS, so I go with Fuzion.
    Charmeleon vs. Asuka - lol

    Just went in looking for Eagle. I'm usually online 5pm - 11pm EST on weekdays.

    On weekends, it's a bit longer or shorter, depending on how busy I am.

    I predicted for Justin last time and he did not win, so, this time Darkbolt.

    Noobster has a better handle on UU, I'd say...

    Lesm's experienced.

    I'm not going to take you lightly. May the person who plays the best match win.

    Same as with Noobster, Mekkah has it down pretty well, I think. 180 Roger plays standard, but not sure about anything else.

    This could go either way. I'm rooting for 0_o, of course. =)

    I'm pretty sure Steelicks is better and more experienced, but for some reason I see him losing due to hax... it's a funny thing, since it has no rational basis.

    cookkirby is underrated, I'd say.

    Argh... this is very difficult to determine. I'd say Warthog if his winning streak hadn't ended... Both of these players will play well, I think.

    I'm not completely certain about this one, since I haven't RBY'ed Eagle in... probably a year, but I know he's a cool player generally speaking.

    I think Cerberus has more experience, and I don't know Soujiro San.

    Hmm... I feel like Fish should have the edge in UU, coming from a time when UU Pokemon were most used in standard play.

    Not really sure, but I see Explodus around all the time, so maybe he'll practice more. How well you prepare yourself is a major factor.

    I consider these two equal, I think; I see them both at about the same rate in the weekly pre-season RBY tourneys.

    Fuzion. With these new "adjusted" RBY UU's, I think he'll do better than the last one.

    No idea, really. Unless Charmeleon is a complete random and TTS practices before the match, then I'd go with TTS, but if Charmeleon does and TTS doesn't... yeah, reverse.

    Play well. =)

    Also, no Tentacruel or Tangela, so the only partial trapping you'll see is from the inaccurate Fire Spin.

    Alright, Fish, I'll add you to my MSN, then hope to find you there. Just for the record, I live in a GMT+1-zone, and am on mostly in the evenings.

    Hope we get this done, and good luck.
