    ^I'm rooting for Deck too. Banking on his massive RP ability to hook me up with TC in the predictions...

    I had to put my money on danman; Deck is boss on a stick, but Danman's team absolutely destroys Deck's (and by destroy, I mean DESTROY).

    A BEEDRILL NAMED FOR THE MIGHTY CHOU TOSHIO! You cannot grasp the true form of Deck's attack.

    Pardon me for being noob, but who's Chou Toshio? Deck's Beedrill, yeah, but who's it named after?

    Also, I'm going to have to say that Dan's taking the tourney. That Pyroak is top notch.

    Pyroak is pretty good, but not spectacular. Too bad it pretty much beats deck's entire team...

    Look at Smeargle's studio to find out. He also did ASB briefly.

    I'd take Raikou even though my fvourite is entei. Modest Raikou will be awesome.

    Just had a thought, what if we end up with a Rock Paper Scissors situation? How will the winner be decided then?

    iiMKUltra has a WLT of 1/0/1 in the finals.

    Hmmmm.... Well, Entei does fit the general theme of my endgame planned team better, but Raikou has Weather Ball, making it a better partner in SS and other weathers.

    Not to mention Zap Cannon ftw.

    So I shall select Raikou.

    Good games to all my opponents in the tourney matches. And remember: Never underestimate the bumbling bee!

    I certainly will. Maybe you should make it like the Smogon Premier League, that would be pretty cool.
