I meant where the last chance qualifiers take place in.
Rogue, Steamworks, Exp Bar just off the top of my head. Food court literally across the street. Also pretty close to anything in Gastown or Robson.
This is an absolute godsend after Waikoloa.
Bonus: Best gelato in the world as determined by the Florence Gelato Festival a block or so away.
The LCQ takes place in the same venue as the World Championships.
How long are breaks between the action for competitors? Sure, one could mosey to Robson or Gastown but I know few people can huff it in 15 minutes (each way.) I would not call EXP Bar within walking distance of the Convention Center for short breaks. Rogue is do-able. Steamworks is okay if not busy as can be.
Are you talking about that Gelato place on the corner of Burrard and Cordova? I have been wandering how their's is.
For long breaks there are plenty of places one can hit up. Sad news for any games out there. Vancouver's downtown core doesn't have any video game/board game/hobby shops. There's a bitchin' comic shop on Granville.
For those traveling looking for a cheap stay... whatever you do, do not pick the Cambie Hostel. Just trust me on that one.
I have been reviewing things for the Dream Radar and Entree Forest. Is it possible for a Nature-locked Entree Forest Pokémon? It might be Timer0 hits but I am trying to learn to RNG my first Entree Forest Pokémon. I just keep getting the same Nature (not one that I want.)
(I am having issues getting a Nurse into my Join Avenue to assist with hatching of eggs. Does anyone have any hints or suggestions?)
Exp Bar is literally a 10 minute walk away from Canada Place but I wouldn't recommend going to any restaurants during the lunch break and definitely not between rounds. Just go to the food court or grab something from a food cart (Japadog is super close and Bada Bing / Kaboom Box / stuff around Granville and Georgia is defintely doable). I am not kidding when I say I had to walk further to get from the playing area to my room all in the Waikoloa resort than the places I mentioned.
And yes that's the one. Bella Geletaria. The only gelato I've had in Vancouver that stands up to the stuff in Italy.
Hey, I´ve a few questions again:
1. I saw on a page that Wolfey´s Mons by worlds which need no Attack IV ( only for struggle, but imo the lower damage when a Mon is swaggered make 0 IV worth) had random or 31 Atk. IV. Why? I saw it by other T4 guys too. Is it because RNG was difficult in Gen.4?
2. Is it worth to invest SDef EVs in Scizor to live random HP Fire ( like from Cresse)
3. What is the standart set for offensive Cresselia?
1. the Attack IV doesn't really matter and taking ~3 points less from Swagger is not a big deal. I think completely flawless spreads are easier to RNG
2. Actually, you don't have to invest much at all! 252 HP / 4 SDef survives Max Sp. Attack Modest Cress' HP Fire, so yes, I think it is very well worth it.
the calc: 252+ SpA Cresselia Hidden Power Fire vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Scizor: 148-176 (83.61 - 99.43%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
3. The Standard set is probably Psyshock, Ice Beam, HP Fire and another move like Swagger, TR, Helping Hand, or even a coverage move like Energy Ball
What could be a moveset for a bulky sunny day ludicolo
a bulky sunny day ludi can be found in here.

if your wondering why I'm running speed IVs and not minus Speed nature, in my mind, it will give it some decent speed (but not too many not to operate well under TR) in case my TR is countered and screwed over. can someone tell me if this is a good mindset or not?
It is an ok mindset, but you'll be undersped by other TR mons. Also, what do your EVs accomplish? you want to look into optimizing them.
ok thx i'll try to look into tht a little more and also can you give me a list of popular pokemon so I could look into threats and ways to improve the team?
If you can put together proper descriptions for your team (and an easier to read format), feel free to make a RMT. It's not about how new you are (unless you're so inexperienced that you would be better off with the tutoring program), but how well you explain your team and strategy.
As for the Speed thing, I would recommend against it. There's no point in aiming for average Speed - you'll still be slower than the majority of non-TR mons, and now other TR teams will also be "faster."
I strongly agree with VooDoo Pimp. The theory I have always used is have a full fledged back-up plan. Have a fast Poke on your team, but only one on a TR team.
If your TR team works well, that one fast Poke will never see play, and you probably will have already won your battle. I your TR gets countered, you still have at least one Poke for sure that can outspeed stuff, and get you KO's, until you have a new chance to set up TR unaborted.
Have at least one 108+ Speed tier (Infernape, or faster) on your team.
Average speed will not get you anything worth mentioning.
OK thx everyone I'll try to look into what u said some more
I know this could've been answered before and it probably sounds noobish for me to ask but;
If I get a non-hacked pokemon that is fully legit from pokecheck and it doesn't have the ribbon (obviously), is that pokemon eligible to use at VGC's? Or will it not pass the hack checks? I am thinking it should pass but I just want to make sure.
You should be fine; I used a Hitmontop from Pokécheck at my last VGC and I passed. Plus, this forum hosts links to VGC Pokécheck mons and I haven't heard of anyone getting DQed for using one.
Most of the trusted users provide great Pokemon on Pokecheck, in fact, on my Regs 2012 team, I had all Pokecheck mons.
Thanks, just wanted to double check :D
The VGC analysis for Terrakion suggests the moves Close Combat and Quick Guard. Terrakion learns Quick Guard at 55 and CC at level 73. How can Terrakion know those moves at level 50?
In VGC competitions or GBU, your mons will all be leveled down to 50. Even if they're level 100.
Wondering, is the premier ribbon allowed on a pokemon? Because I got a pokemon off of pokecheck and it has it. Is it still legit if I have it like that?
No, Pokemon transferred directly from Pokecheck will have the premier ribbon and be considered hacked. You can use PokeGTS to avoid that though.
This offers more comprehensive instructions. But make sure that they come from a trustworthy uploader, because there's a lot of hacked garbage on there.
