Lesm46, if you have trouble finding me, PM...I'm GMT+1 (Holland etc). I will probably be online in the late afternoon-evening tomorrow, same for the rest of the week, shortly in the morning (7:30am or something). I'm sure we could find each other.
pokemaniac15 vs. Picollo - p15 seems to be good at all 3 generations, whereas picollo only seems to have advance skills.
chaos vs. Holyknight - chaos is easily better at rby and advance.
VIL vs. me - VIL has the edge in advance, and i have the edge in RBY, and he will probably beat me at GSC.
Lesm46 vs. Mekkah - this side of the bracket is pretty tough. this is probably the best matchup of the first round. they are both equal in all 3 versions. although Mekkah might have the edge in GSC and Lesm might have the edge in Advance. (i'm not too sure who is how good at advance)
1.pokemaniac15 (20 rby/43 gsc/18 adv) vs. 8.Picollo(2/4/23)
-I'm not too familiar with either of these players, but I do know p15 is a well-rounded player and the top seed.
4.chaos (9 rby/12 gsc/30) vs. 5.HolyKnight(7/9/20 adv)
-I dont know what to make of this matchup, both are skilled players but I haven't seen them battle much lately.
2.Veteran In Love(16 rby/5/43 adv) vs. Justin8649(24/3 gsc/3)
-I was going to pick Justin(so he would let me write the finals warstories), but ViL is just a monster right now. This should be fun to watch, I've seen both players using cool teams with less common standard pokemon.
3.Lesm46(30 rby/26 gsc/1) vs. Mekkah(26/2/3 adv)
-This is the best matchup so far, both players are skilled and it could go either way. I hope the poke-gods keep Lesm's luck out of this and nothing stupid happens.
If you want to write War stories, that would be great. So far only Acura has volunteered to do it, and he is rarely around. The plan is for each finals match next season to have a war story. (But it would be nice if the championship match for this had war stories...it would be a tough job though since it is 3 battles.) If you want to do it, just let me know
pokemaniac15 vs. Picollo - Ok, I don't care what anyone says, Pico can play all gens pretty evenly and has the experience and skill to win this matchup. Also, everyone seems to forget that p15 haxxed quite a bit to get to #1.
Picollo 60% - p15 40%
chaos vs. Holyknight - chaos has a slight edge in rby, HK has it in GSC. It'll be decided by advance =/
chaos is a 59% - 41% favorite over HK, but I wouldn't be surprised if HK came up with a win here.
Lesm46 vs. Mekkah - I'd like to be a poser and say that luck will play the deciding factor, but these players are well-matched. Lesm probably has the edge in RBY, Mekkah has the advance edge, which means their bracket could be decided by each player's weakest metagame, GSC.
Hell I really don't know
Wow all close matchups between solid players, kudos to the well-run tournament system and congrats to everyone for making the top 8 to create some exciting matches!
