    VIL has the edge in RSFRLGE. While 0ma can RBY well, imo he's shabby with GSC.
    Pokemon Professor vs Devilkid
    DK has the RBY skills but either one of them can own in GSC or RSFRLGE imo.
    goofball vs Warthog
    Coin tossed for this one.
    pokemaniac15 vs Giga Punch
    Yeah.

    (1) Veteran In Love vs (8.) 0mastar

    VIL is pretty much an allstar. His gripes about certain things I disagree with in GSC and ADV are compensated by his cool RBY teams.

    (4) Pokemon Professor vs (5) Devilkid

    Just my anti-Germany bias kicking in again.

    (3) goofball vs (6) Warthog

    This is probably coming down to RBY since goofball will most likely win GSC and Warthog will take Advance. Gambling goofball. Hardest pick so far.

    (2) pokemaniac15 vs (7) Giga Punch

    p15 usually has a good overall streak/

    some good matchups here in R1...

    (1) Veteran In Love vs (8) 0mastar
    Cant go against the #1 seed and defending champ, but expect 0mastar to keep it close

    (4) Pokemon Professor vs (5) Devilkid
    I'm not really famiar with these two, going for DevilKid because he has a cooler username

    (3) goofball vs (6) Warthog
    This one could go either way, definately the best matchup so far

    (2) pokemaniac15 vs (7) Giga Punch
    Giga will probably win ADV, but I think p15 has an edge in the earlier versions

    Longshot finals prediction: Warthog over ViL

    Veteran In Love vs 0mastar

    In general, it's not a smart move to bet against VIL when it comes to Pokemon; perennial favorite he will always be. I don't think this will make it to the third match...though good luck to 0mastar as well.

    Pokemon Professor vs Devilkid

    I'm just really unsure about both of these players...going with the German since Bob seems to be blessed with both skill and a lucky streak...which I despise.

    goofball vs Warthog

    I'm not even pretending to pick a winner here. Both are great guys and excellent pokemonners. Good luck to both.


    pokemaniac15 vs Giga Punch

    Giga Punch would not have made the top 8 without the insane amounts of luck he had this season. I'm not saying that he isn't skilled; he is. Be that as it may, GP is simply not of the caliber of p15.

    (1) Veteran In Love vs (8) 0mastar
    RBY-0ma GSC-VIL ADV - VIL 0ma won't go down easily though
    (4) Pokemon Professor vs (5) Devilkid
    RBY - Dk GSC - PP ADV - PP I've seen Dk hax a lot so I don't know...
    (3) goofball vs (6) Warthog - tough one to call
    (2) pokemaniac15 vs (7) Giga Punch - more on bias as I know gp more...

    GP has been awfully lucky this season and p15 is very good in all area's just going to go with p15.

    VIL, PP, Warthog, Giga Punch win this round. Then PP and Warthog go through, with PP winning in the final, by luck. (Unless they faced eachother in the last round, in which case Warthog pull a win because it's not the final, and meets VIL, where VIL wins)

    meh it sucks to lose to a last turn CH after coming so far in the tour

    gg Omastar and good luck to you and Warthog especially in the rest of the field. Guess I got full and lazy having already won the tour once.

    I think it's time for a break from Netbattle with this loss, since I was only sticking around for the tour. My luck's been on the downhill for a while now, I've lost motivation to play over the months and I think it's time to pass the torch and let the young guns take over.

    gg VIL, pity the whole thing ended up being decided by a CH.

    In case the scores and stuff are needed;

    RBY - 2-0, me
    GSC - 0-5, VIL
    ADV - 4-0, me

    I had a gut feeling 0ma would come out of that matchup with a win... and I don't know why, either...

    Anyways, for the rest of the matchups:

    Pokemon Professor over Devilkid
    Warthog over goofball (this one was hardest)
    p15 over Giga Punch

    Edit: Sorry, forgot to say to VIL, it was an awesome run man; you don't know me but it was awesome for me to see you dominate this game for so long. I hope you come back soon.

    IMO VIL either has bad luck...or he's rusty now. Or both. Noone made a right prediction there...

    wel gj on beating VIL 0ma :o Maybe now VIL won't rape the next PR Bowl.
