why ban the 2 most interesting bits of the game
We had a poll to let the community decide what to play and this is what was chosen! People just want to play something refreshing i'm assuming, and not everyone is exactly a fan of z-moves and megas.
Distribution for the Mimikyus has begun! To get one upload a Wingull to the GTS asking for a Level 91-100 Male Mimikyu. You can catch some Wingulls on Route 1 if you don't have any on you. If you get sniped somehow just upload another Wingull.

Thanks to everyone who came around so far! Hope you all have been enjoying the competition!

lol I ended up waking up with less than an hour before the competition ended.

Went 5-1 (lost to chemcoop ), and got 1555. Alright for pulling an Ash Ketchum I guess!

gonna kick off the team-posting

Articuno was a really Really REALLY effective meme. Hitmonlee, less so, but still funny. I shoulda used Koko over xurk, and Garchomp was as reliable as it can be. Gigalith was because I got too impatient to wait for the distributed Landorus (>_>), and Manidbuzz walls. She walls a LOT. Like holy heck

I had a lot of fun seeing the various memes abounding! Shoutout to Zenith013 for the Killer Comfey that wrecked quite a bit of shit.

gg all, can't wait for the next one after US/UM!

e: also fband didnt work ONCE like wtf

e2: also i cane in like 61st out of 68. wheeeeeeee......

This was a pretty fun competition and I managed to do much better than I expected!

5th place is pretty good :pimp:

My team itself was a tad generic, but that's what happens when you don't start team building until the day before the comp starts.

Kingdra and Mamoswine were the MVPs of my team, but every member put in good work. Hawlucha saw the least action, which is disappointing since I thought it would be a good meme mon.

This was lots of fun! I'm looking forward to the next comp (whenever that is)
