    Hey Smogon. Congrats to Xerograde! That was an awesome battle.

    I'm not very experienced, but somehow I managed to get to the final 16.
    Here's the video I saved: 50-16768-78578
    It's my first battle in the finals. It wasn't exactly my best performance... lol

    Congrats Xerograde! It's interesting to me that a Rayquaza/Metagross lead combo won since I used that a lot in 3rd gen doubles.

    Xerograde has always been an awesome player. I remember the torrent of Rock Slides he sent at me in last year's Nationals, just burying me before I could execute a single attack. I was really upset he did not advance with a 4-1 record in the yellow flight.

    I can clearly see the unexperience there, clearly you were unaware of the useage of Hitmontop. But your useage of Light Screen was helpful in this tournament. Your oppoenent didn't have ways to stop Explosions.

    Wow, the guy I met right before the tourney won. Big ups to you man. Big ups. See, just like we were saying before hand. Both of us had a good shot to win the whole thing; you had a much more consistent team though. Powerful.
