Why getting disqualified from the world finals is a good idea.

    I could write a thousand words, but Ninahaza has pictures worth those, so I'll present you my account in another medium.

    If I had played in the tournament I would never have been able to do this. So in a way I'm glad that I was disqualified. I took one for the team, and this is what I have to show for it.

    This isn't my warstory, it's OUR warstory. Not Smogon's, the ducks or Skarmbliss. We can pair off and claim wins for whatever site or group, but the truth is and always will be that we're in this together. I made no enemies during this trip (except Pokerob), only friends. I saw no hatred, no jealousy, no division, only unity. America, (Canada), Spain, France, UK, even the Japanese. So this is for all my friends, old and new. And if you aren't in it, maybe you will be next year. I hope you all enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.

    Oh and if you were there, this is why I kept shoving that video camera in your face every five minutes!

    Remember, this warstory wouldn't have been possible without me.

    OK, so I got myself blacklisted and Kinneas missed out on his shot at the world title, but at least something good came of it in the end.

    kinneas you are a disgrace to this country and everything it stands for and Pokerob was definitely right when saying you are an utter failure

    Awesome video logs, this looked so fun :( fucking Hawaii in the middle of summer with no flight allowance from Nintendo ._.

    I only have enough time to watch the shortest video out of all of them, but this thread is already 5-starred on that alone.

    You found your very own Roberto!

    - "White Forest is a city that is only in White version!"
    - "Is it made out of trees?"

    - "You can walk across the desert?"
    - "Yeah, but I have to warn you, there are crocodile pokemon that are there!"

    - "If it's that small how can you see the ameba inside the pokeball? Is it a giant ameba?"

    Lmfao, Those videos were hilarious.

    It was great to bits of those final battles again after seeing the live stream. So exciting that Jesus fell off his chair...

    Hahaha, that's exactly what I was thinking when I watched that.

    Last few videos were so funny! Also great job actually qualifying for Worlds as well as making all of these final videos to show us all how great the experience of Worlds was. I can't wait until next year where I'll be sure to at least qualify for Nationals!

    GROUND TYPES WON'T WORK ON THIS LIL' GUY

    would you mind if I posted your videos (uh, not the Master Trainer ones. Maybe we should keep his infinite knowledge a secret for now...) in my VGC community on Livejournal? It looks like it was really an amazing time, and I'd love to give people a chance to see that battling isn't all it's about. Full credit to you and our amazing players, of course.

    It looks like you guys had an amazing time, and I can't wait until next year. This time around, going to Worlds is an actual possibility for me thanks to the fact that it costs a lot less for me to get to San Diego. :U

    Great time meeting you Kinneas, hopefully you make it next year. We tore it up in the Battle Factory; nothing can stand up to Infernape and Venusaur!



    Oh man, Alaka and I had such a great time with that guy in the last two videos. So funny hahaha


    "Actually, I don't know what Zekrom is, but he's definitely different"

    "Earthquake Spiral? What does that do?

    Don't know..."

    "Is it a giant amoeba???"

    "I bet she Frisks a lot of people ;)"

    "first he grabs your opponents pokemon, then second turn he flies up and throws him down so hard he hits the ground with....uh..with the force of a sludgehammer!!!"

    "This caterpillar is disguised.................as a leaf!"



    Oh man hahahahaha what a crack up

    I watched the last three videos and didn't see a single funny thing. Certainly the young man featured was being entirely serious. Could someone explain?
