My last posting of unwanted predictions!


The Precious Pichus (3) vs

Vicious Vivillons (3)

BO3: HunterStorm vs Megazard - HL match of the entire week; giving Hunter the edge tho cuz he's Hunter.
USUM: neomon vs vivalospride - viv's been doing p well this AGPL, and even tho he's vivalosterrible, he just might vivaloswin
USUM: Sitonai vs Quantum Tesseract - Holy Broken
USUM: byronthewellwell vs Jrdn - Michael Jrdn
USUM: Sets vs lotiasite - idt Sets will be able to break Loti's builds, honestly
ORAS: Thimo vs Thimo - Normally I'd pick Thimo but he's playing against Thimo.... really tough decision here
Edit: Oh Thimo's playing Chloe. Cool; I can pick Thimo then.



Yveltal Yeet Squad (3) vs

Shimmering Skarmories (3)

BO3: MDB vs ice-master-523 - MDB if you don't bring Thundurus-Therian I'm going to be very annoyed.
USUM: GotCookies vs Mysterious M - M's been playing well this AGPL so I'd be hard-pressed to predict against him this week
USUM: frogger1387 vs Pigeons - Bringing Klefki and freezing Flyceus won't help when your opponent knows they're playing for more than ten minutes before the match
USUM: DanDaMan99 vs bigtalk - His name is DanDaMan. He isn't Lil Mosey; he doesn't wake up like the man, because he is the man.
USUM: xavgb vs LeafStorm - as much as I could see LeafStorm bringing bp and blowing this predict out of the water, stresh has done p well this AGPL so I feel inclined to predict him here
ORAS: RaJ.Shoot vs iLlama - when Apple actually releases the iLlama I'll camp out for it

Horrendous Houndooms ()
Ground>Fire EZ.
Also s/o to Skarph for playing me even tho I'm 0-3 in AGPL. Also this'll be my last time playing so yeah see y'all. It's been horrible

This is gonna be the most boring fuckin post ever b/c I legit hate every one of these fuckin matchups

Nefarious Nidokings (2) vs
Horrendous Houndooms (4)

BO3: Terracotta vs Andyboy - Ummm, idk. Terracotta is p good but doesn't know AG like cata does. Idk, idrc either. I did a coinflip and it picked terracotta, but to avoid cata thinking it's personal I'm going to replace cata's name with Andyboy so I'd be predicting against him.
USUM: BaconEatinAssassin vs Alpha Rabbit - Idc how alpha of a rabbit you are, you're not gonna beat an assassin whom eats bacon OR someone who assassinates people who eat bacon.
USUM: Dockiva~~ vs skysolo14 - idk, I have no clue. Idc. I did !pick
USUM: Tic-Tac-Toe Guru vs Alkione - my uupl teammate alkione is a broken slot and free win every week, if I was AGTL and I was given ONE thing to suspect it'd easily be Alkione. tttg's predict post genuinely made me laugh so I really wanna predict for him but unfortunately I cannot go against Alkione ;w;
USUM: Lithe Haze vs GRNBLN - GURRN BLURN will win, this is how I actually say his name.
ORAS: Dj Breloominati♬ vs absdaddy - dj breloominati is a p good zu player, idk his current agpl record nor do I care enough to check, but fsr "absdaddy" is a name that my brain is telling me to bold rn.

Yveltal Yeet Squad (1) vs
Shimmering Skarmories (5)

BO3: MDB vs ice-master-523 - Idk, idk anything about icemaster, I'll always stand by MDB having a good smogon name, 3 letter club is an insta power boost. But from what I've seen icemaster is better, but I've also seen very little and I'm p fuckin stupid.
USUM: GotCookies vs Mysterious M - Idk. I'm tempted ot just 6-0 this series w/ predicts w/o even thinking about it, I think I'll do that.
USUM: frogger1387 vs Pigeons - This should be a slaughter, I'm sorry :(.
USUM: DanDaMan99 vs bigtalk - I've literally never cared less, ever, I hate this tour.
USUM: xavgb vs LeafStorm - stresh will win but ngl LeafStorm is a p good name.
ORAS: RaJ.Shoot vs iLlama - Llamaboy checked into aaa discord the other day, I like him I think. Why is martha still not starting tho.

Tic-Tac-Toe Guru as someone that's dealt with the frustrations of this community I understand your viewpoint, but you also must understand that I can think of a million people just off the top of my head on this site in very similar situations as you (trying to make progress for years and feeling stuck), including myself. Succeeding in literally anything (but especially this site) is the repetition of failing and continuing anyways, quitting this shitty site would probably be healthy for literally anybody here tho, best of luck to you if you stick to that.

edit: why the fuck is macklemore your favorite song of the decade what the FUCK

That is all. :fukyu:

BO3: HunterStorm vs Megazard: they're playing a best of tea where they pretend to be British for an hour. Picking Hunter as he seems more adaptable to different drinks.
USUM: neomon vs vivalospride: we all out here actin like this ain't fate that Viv is on vivs
USUM: Sitonai vs Quantum Tesseract: the weeb levels would have been in uncharted territory if not for HB's name change. Still giving it to an because their name is still a weeb name. That's dedication folks.
USUM: byronthewellwell vs Jrdn: what the fuck does this name mean. How do you type this in as your username??
USUM: Sets vs lotiasite: bitch u straight up tripping sets wouldn't know a sets unless it hit sets in the sets.
ORAS: Thimo vs Chloe: honestly FUCK whoever changed the original mu, I would've rl y liked to know if thimo vs thimo would last forever or just mindfuck the server


Nefarious Nidokings () vs

Horrendous Houndooms ()

BO3: Terracotta vs Catalystic: cata unleashed their inner 1600s player by completely bullshitting Hunter last week. Just bring some stupid hax team and enjoy the double 6-0.
USUM: BaconEatinAssassin vs Alpha Rabbit: bacon continued the trend of an auth having some kinda brain aneurysm when they get a name change. Picking him because he switched it faster than most.
USUM: Dockiva~~ vs skysolo14: one added ~~ to their name, the other added 14. Picking skysolo because their is zero fucking reason to add ~~ to the end of an acceptable name.
USUM: Tic-Tac-Toe Guru vs Alkione: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH... excuse me
USUM: Lithe Haze vs GRNBLN: Nobody:
Seriously, no one:
Fuck off i said no one:
Lithe: yo so imma bring the same team every time
ORAS: Dj Breloominati♬ vs absdaddy: i was gonna pick dj because I have no abs, daddy, but then I remembered that dj randomly PMs me on Showdown "mixing dat beat (respect)" so imma give you a fuck off/ 10

Nefarious Nidokings (3) vs

Horrendous Houndooms (3)

BO3: Terracotta vs Catalystic - terra's lit but if we learned anything last week it's that cata has some otherworldly power
USUM: BaconEatinAssassin vs Alpha Rabbit - bacon dipped a little with that namechange but he's back to being god
USUM: Dockiva~~ vs skysolo14 - dockiva has pretty solid balance builds that i quite enjoy
USUM: Tic-Tac-Toe Guru vs Alkione - tttg's chance of showing up after his 10th quitbin is exactly 34%
USUM: Lithe Haze vs GRNBLN - i am annoyed by the fact that i cannot pronounce either of these names. "lithe"? how is a haze lithe? like athletic? and why do i pronounce grnbln grinblin?
ORAS: Dj Breloominati♬ vs absdaddy - dj is so fire that i dodged him and had to get someone to sub in


Yveltal Yeet Squad (0) vs

Shimmering Skarmories (5)

BO3: MDB vs ice-master-523 - 523 is a very odd number to pick in your username but i can respect that it took that many tries to get it right. mdb on the other hand has been doing questionably since the first 2 weeks
USUM: GotCookies vs Mysterious M - i played so badly vs mm last week that he must have some sort of mind control aura
USUM: frogger1387 vs Pigeons - im like 80% sure birds eat frogs but im too lazy to google it. either way pigeons haxed chloe yesterday and i need him to win to let chloe not be the only victim
USUM: DanDaMan99 vs bigtalk - um
USUM: xavgb vs LeafStorm121 - didnt know leafstorm still played but if he brings bp this will be a landslide
ORAS: RaJ.Shoot vs iLlama - i know negative about both of these players but they both rockin the mid-name capital letters

So I posted the standings for week 4. Nidokings and Vivillons are guaranteed in, since you can only get 2 points per week and they're both 3-4 points above everyone else. How they perform this week will determine which one goes to finals and which one goes to semis, with a possible tiebreaker needed. However, I'm sure people want to know what other teams need to do to clinch the third slot. Reminder, top seed goes right to finals and 2nd and 3rd seed play in semis.
  • :Pichu: Pichus make playoffs if they win (possibly with a tiebreak vs Skarms if they win 4-2 and Skarms win 6-0), or if they tie and Skarmories tie/lose and either Houndooms and Yeet Squad tie or Yeet Squad wins by less than 6-0 (6-0 would lead to a Pichus vs Yeet Squad playoff).
  • :Skarmory: Skarmories make playoffs if they win and Pichus don't, or if they tie but Pichus and Houndooms lose. Also if they win 6-0 and Pichus win 4-2, they can make it via a tiebreaker.
  • :Houndoom: Houndooms make playoffs if Pichus and Skarmories lose and Houndooms tie or win, or if Pichus and Skarmories tie or lose as Houndooms win.
  • :Yveltal: Yeet Squad makes playoffs if they win 6-0 as Pichus tie and Houndooms tie or lose (and then they win a playoff with the Pichus) or if they win by any margin versus the Skarmories as Pichus lose and Houndooms tie or lose.

The Precious Pichus (4) vs
Vicious Vivillons (2)

BO3: HunterStorm vs Megazard - Megazard is great but HunterStorm is on a whole nother level.
USUM: neomon vs vivalospride - Neither of them seem to have been big in AG but Viv has an advantage due to the massive team support Vivs could provide.
USUM: Sitonai vs Quantum Tesseract - Quantum Tesseract has an entire arsenal of builds behind him but Sitonai is likely able to play around them.
USUM: byronthewellwell vs Jrdn - Great Ubers player vs someone who is overall great but as with Viv, the immense team support from Vivillons could provide Jrdn the win.
USUM: Sets vs lotiasite - This is honestly a wild guess. Like lotiasite, Sets is also able to build competent AG teams on their own but in the end, this should almost certainly come down to plays more than in most other matchups.
ORAS: Thimo vs Chloe - As what was said for HunterStorm vs Megazard, but this is ORAS and we're comparing Thimo to Chloe. Although Thimo was rusty at least during the beginning stages. Who knows. This seems to be the highlight match of the week.

Nefarious Nidokings (4) vs
Horrendous Houndooms (2)

BO3: Terracotta vs Catalystic - A good Ubers player vs an AG enthusiast. I'm going with the AG enthusiast.
USUM: BaconEatinAssassin vs Alpha Rabbit - This is not Gen 6.
USUM: Dockiva~~ vs skysolo14 - Again going with the AG enthusiast.
USUM: Tic-Tac-Toe Guru vs Alkione - I don't know about Alkione, but I do know TTTG isn't really as bad as he thinks.
USUM: Lithe Haze vs GRNBLN - Both are good, but GRNBLN's experience gives him the edge.
ORAS: Dj Breloominati♬ vs absdaddy - This is a guess.

Yveltal Yeet Squad (2) vs
Shimmering Skarmories (4)

BO3: MDB vs ice-master-523 - This was the the hardest to predict but I put some bias towards ice-master-523 for his potential to be more open. :blobwizard:
USUM: GotCookies vs Mysterious M - GotCookies already won.
USUM: frogger1387 vs Pigeons - Pigeons is incredibly difficult to beat in general. Leave it for me to say.
USUM: DanDaMan99 vs bigtalk - This is also a guess. idk who bigtalk is.
USUM: xavgb vs LeafStorm121 - stresh is really good as an overall player but his support isn't incredibly strong. Leafstorm's is stronger and they themselves have much more experience playing the AG metagame in relevant levels.
ORAS: RaJ.Shoot vs iLlama - iLlama has performed successfully in ORAS AG tournaments in the past and RaJ.Shoot is probably still relatively new at this.


That is all.

predicts cuz im bored

Nefarious Nidokings () vs Horrendous Houndooms ()

BO3: Terracotta vs Catalystic - cata is the better player here but i think terracotta is definitely going to outprep him. 100% going to be a close series. also catalystic haxed my player last week so im not gonna predict him to win this 1.
USUM: BaconEatinAssassin vs Alpha Rabbit - bacon is a top 5 ag player, no disrespect to the rabbit but i dont see bacon losing this one
USUM: Dockiva~~ vs skysolo14 - skysolo straight up outprepped my player last week but dockiva has been fairly consistent on ladder + tours.
USUM: Tic-Tac-Toe Guru vs Alkione - tttg has been maining ag since forever. alkione def has a chance but tttg should be able to win this one
USUM: Lithe Haze vs GRNBLN - grnbln has been doing really well in tours so its super hard to predict against him rn.
ORAS: Dj Breloominati♬ vs absdaddy - both good players but i think mr. arcanine has more experience in ag

Yveltal Yeet Squad () vs Shimmering Skarmories ()

BO3: MDB vs ice-master-523 - icemaster is obviously better than mdbad but this should be a fun series regardless
USUM: GotCookies vs Mysterious M - goat cookies already won
USUM: frogger1387 vs Pigeons - cant predict against the AGTL but this should be a close game
USUM: DanDaMan99 vs bigtalk - bigtalk has rlly good knowledge of ubers and ag which should help him win this. dandaman is a tours person so he might just pull an upset
USUM: xavgb vs LeafStorm121 - really close game again, leafstorm mains ag but stresh does really well in tours so its kinda hard to predict against him
ORAS: RaJ.Shoot vs iLlama - gonna 50/50 this one because if i give another win to skarms, they'll win the week which MUST NOT HAPPEN! jk idk, illama is probably the better player but this is gen6 so every game is a 50/50

good luck to all the teams, especially the precious pichus!!
