A great round of games, and a 100% match completion rate to boot (pending completion of KyleCole vs. Memoric)! Excellent stuff.

*****
KyleCole vs. Memoric - Both players have been active throughout the week, sometimes simultaneously discussing BW on Discord, but a scheduled time was never nailed down and met. I have granted an extension until Tuesday, June 30 at 11:59 PM Eastern to complete this game.

*****

This week's usage stats: Kyurem-B sets, and their particular win rates! Note that I'm only counting round 2 matches. I am fairly confident all the "unknowns" were Banded based on team composition and how they were played (there was one Life Orb as other), but I'm not sure so I didn't include them as Band. Choice Band has been absolutely killer this round! I've also been intrigued by the number of Scarf Kyurem-B sets. Is it yet another way to play the already dynamic Kyurem-B, or just a fad? Time will tell.

Overall:
  • Usage: 36
  • Win: 13
  • Loss: 5
  • Mirror: 18
Choice Band:
  • Usage: 15
  • Win: 12
  • Loss: 3
  • Mirror: 0
Substitute:
  • Usage: 10
  • Win: 3
  • Loss: 5
  • Mirror: 2
Choice Scarf:
  • Usage: 6
  • Win: 4
  • Loss: 2
  • Mirror: 0
Other / unknown:
  • Usage: 5
  • Win: 1
  • Loss: 4
  • Mirror: 0
