I'll be doing predicts even tho i'm bad at them cuz no one else wants to '-'.
The Unscrupulous Scraggies (3) vs The Vicious Rends (4)

SWSH: Sjneider vs Decem (60-40): Both are good players with very high ceiling, but I think neider is a bit better and is 6-0 this tour so can hardly predict against him. Still, this should be a pretty good battle that I am looking forward to.
SWSH: snaga vs TheFranklin (50-50): snaga is really good and might be the better player here, but I really like what arce has been bringing thus far + he is still a strong player so this should be very close.
SWSH: Feliburn vs Expulso (60-40): Feli has been kinda unstoppable this tour, and even if Expulso is also having a good season, he is coming off a loss against s*nsei so gotta give the edge...
SWSH: TDK vs keppy (60-40): keppy is finally back which is awesome to see, i really love to see him play and I think he's rly good. However, he only got to play one tour game since his "retirement" so idk his current shape. But even if he's not favoed, i hope he wins. go keppy go
USUM: Finchinator vs LordST (45-55): Highlight of the week between these teams for sure. Both are very good players with loads of sm knowledge. While I think Finch is the better player, and even tho he beat LST in week 6, I still trust LST to pull out something cool in the builder to pull this through. This could really go either way tho.
ORAS: asa vs TSR (40-60): I love asa but she's not really at the top of her shape this season, while TSR on the other hand has finally managed to break his ORAS curse and currently sits on a really good 4-3 record. He should barely take this one.
BW2: Shuckleking87 vs EviGaro (35-65): Shuckleking has been doing rly good in BW this pupl, even beating Evi on week 6. But even then, Evi remains one of the best if not the best BWers and I trust her to win this for the rends.
DPP: Skysolo vs SergioRules (45-55): Skysolo has been doing decent so far, and I think he is a good player so he definitely has the tools to win this with some good teambuilding. If you asked me about this exact matchup a year ago I would've probably instantly bolded Skysolo, but Sergio finally stepped up his game and I have been sincerely impressed by him this pupl. He came up with very solid ideas and teams coupled with well executed games. I hope he keeps it up for these playoffs cuz I feel like his game might be a key one in this showdown.

Good luck have fun everyone, may the best teams win
 
BW: Bushtush vs Feaniix

Um ehrlich zu sein braucht man einen sehr hohen IQ um Feaniix zu verstehen. Die Games sind extrem subtil, und ohne ein solides Verständnis von logischen Denken gehen die goldenen Jahre an einem typischen Spieler vorbei. Dazu kommt Feaniix menschenfreundliche Lebenseinstellung, die tief mit seinem Charakter verwoben ist - seine persönliche Philosophie ist zum Beispiel von nigel naiver Art beeinflusst. Die Fans verstehen das; sie haben die intellektuelle Kapazität, die Mehrdeutigkeit der Szenarien zu schätzen, zu realisieren, dass diese nicht nur ein einfacher Zeitvertreib sind - sie geben uns eine Einsicht ins LEBEN. Leute die Feaniix nicht mögen SIND konsequent einfach Idioten - natürlich wissen sie den Humor in Feaniix existenziellem Slogan "Girly Air Force bester Anime, schwör auf alles" nicht zu schätzen, welcher eine kryptische Referenz zu Turgenevs russischen Epos "Vater und Söhne" ist. Ich grinse gerade im Gedanken an diese hohlköpfigen Einfaltspinsel, mir vorstellend wie sie sich am Kopf kratzen während sich Laytons genialer Intellekt auf ihren Bildschirmen entfaltet. Solche Narren... ach, wie ich sie bemitleide. Und ja, wenn wir schon dabei sind, ER HAT ein MontanaBlack88 Tattoo. Nein, du darfst keinen Blick darauf werfen. Es ist nur für die Augen der Damen bestimmt - und sogar die müssen mir zuerst demonstrieren, dass sie nicht mehr als 5 Punkte abstand zu meinem IQ haben (am besten niedriger). Nichts persönliches mein Kind.
 
someone asked for predicts

1. The Unscrupulous Scraggies (3) vs 4. The Vicious Rends (2)
SWSH: Sjneider vs Decem - both good, could probably go either way but leaning neider as he's 6-0 and i can't predict against that
SWSH: snaga vs TheFranklin - better player? i don't know anything
SWSH: Feliburn vs Expulso - feli has been doing so well this tour
SWSH: TDK vs keppy - go keppy, do me proud
USUM: Finchinator vs LordST - lst is goated

3. M.A.A.D City Magmortars (2.5) vs 2. Happy Huntails (2.5)
SWSH: Raiza vs Ktütverde - id prob give clean to ktut but im still mad over his w4 team
SWSH: pdt vs TJ - i love pdt but i think tj has this sorry, idk how u get away with bringing drampa 3 times tho
SWSH: zS vs Lambovino - i rate zs much higher
SWSH: dahli vs lockjaw - for a second i was like "why isn't squash playing" bc i assumed he was on this team due to being french, then i remembered he was my teammate, lockjaw i guess tho
USUM: avarice vs yandaud - go dillon
 
BW: Bushtush vs Feaniix

Seit dem ich Feaniix BW PU spielen sah, erblickte ich einen völlig neuen Weg das Spiel zu spielen. Ich sah Pokemon in einem anderen Licht etwas, was ich zuvor nicht für möglich gehalten hatte. Ich sah mir alle seine Replays mindestens 50x an um die vielen Lücken in meinem Spiel auszumachen, welche mir diese Lichtgestalt aufzeigte. Zur gleichen Zeit einen Pokeball in die Hand nehmen zu dürfen wie Feaniix, ist für mich ein Geschenk des Himmels und ich werde jede Einzelne Sekunde der nun folgenden Ära an Dominanz genießen. Für mich gibt es keine Zweifel: Feaniix wird gewinnen.
 
BW: Bushtush vs Feaniix würden die beiden AMQ gegeneinander spielen, dann würde ich Bushtush bolden, aber in BW PU kann man nicht Feaniix besiegen (ausser mit gutem Luck/MU)
BW: Bushtush vs Feaniix leicht berechenbar. Du wärst verrückt, Feaniix nicht jede Woche zu bolden.

I used to ask trixx to do the prediction so I can copy the match up from him after , but I haven’t seen him since week2 so that’s why I stopped doing it , luckily chlo and zs here to make it easier


The Unscrupulous Scraggies (5) vs The Vicious Rends (3)

SWSH: Sjneider vs Decem this imo the one game that I want to catch the most both players are very powerful players but I’m favoring sjneider he's undefeated , very powerful run I said that earlier this guy is one of the most skilled player in this tour and he just proved me right the one game he almost lost was due to a horrible hazard stack tsareena match up when he didn’t have a hazard removal but other than that very solid I love decem he’s very good player too but I’m going with sjneider

SWSH: snaga vs TheFranklin the Franklin 3-3 but I think he can pull this one imo

SWSH: Feliburn vs Expulso both are very powerful player it’s hard to predict against feliburn especially after his very good performance in the tour i think he’s 5-1 in regular season so that a good reflection of how good of player he is

SWSH: TDK vs keppy the recent World Cup winner is the favorable here imo tdk, I have no idea why keppy didn’t play earlier and why he got chosen here he might know tdk play style better I know both players play uu or very active there so it could be a factor , although I didn’t see much from keppy in this tournament but he’s good pu player

USUM: Finchinator vs LordST this another highlight game both players are very solid , but I’m slightly favoring LordST

ORAS: Asa vs Tsr both player are very good in oras and they did very nice in this tournament but I’m going with asa here

BW: Shuckleking87 vs EviGaro both player have decent record in the tournament I think Evi 3:3 in BW and sk87 have very close record to that ,
I’m favoring shuckleking87 this going to be very interesting game it’s gonna be ice cold like an ice punch

DPP : skysolo Vs Sergiorules I don’t watch this tier I skipped all games ,and I just got to know the winners for the most part so take my prediction with grain of salt
Sergio have 2:2 record if I’m not mistaken skysolo ifrc wasn’t doing bad himself
But I’m going with skysolo


M.A.A.D City Magmortars (3) vs Happy Huntails(5)

SWSH: Raiza vs Ktütverde ktut is the goat this very good match actually, but I’m going with ktut here , he was almost undefeated and the one time he lost in 6/0 ludicolo match up was due hydro pump dodge that worked against him I mean this guy is just very good and he always turn hard match up to a playable and winnable one
SWSH: pdt vs TJ tj also very good player on this roaster with very solid performance through the entire season just proving why he deserved the highest price , he was like 4-2 , and tbh the two game he lost was Horrendous match ups not taking anything from his opponents his week1 team got 6/0 by scrafty on team preview ,his only scrafty check was zard and his zard was easy to guard against with the opponent archeops if that wasn’t bad enough his only archeops answer was palossand in his team and that was just a set fodder for scrafty , again not taking anything from his opponent cause preparation and team choices/ play style /scouting fav mon to use , are big factors
But the point being you have to edge this guy in team preview to win vs him or be equally solid

SWSH: zS vs Lambovino both player are good but I’m going with ZS here solid player very creative his week 1 team with Combusken was nasty against tlenit , you probably asking why , I can imagine that what was going in Zs mind, tlenit was known for using busken special busken to be more specific and pretty much he spammed the mon and did very good with that team so busken more of his signature mon
But this guy brought physical Combusken to throw him off and he probably did I think he took his gigalith with low kick and I can imagine him having rock slide most likely for Zard as well , I don’t know what his set was but I’m guessing,
So this guy is very smart builder and I’ll give him the edge to win this
SWSH: dahli vs lockjaw I’m 50:50 this honestly lockjaw performance wasn’t the most solid one through this tournament, and I don’t know much about his opponent tbh so nothing much to say here . I don’t know anything
USUM: avarice vs yandaud I’m going with yandaud honestly man had very solid performance this tournament , USUM in this tournament was very competitive honestly I think yandaud one of the best in this gen imo i think Ava better in oras in swsh as Pu player but who knows she probably can pull something here
ORAS: ManOfMany vs Ereshkigal I don’t have enough intel on ereshigal as player plus manofmany Probably the best oras player in this tournament record standing on 4-1 , he lost to the same opponent last week but I don’t think he will lose again this week
BW2: Bushtush✖ vs Feaniix ✔ Yeah i don’t understand German but whatever those German was saying it’s 100% true ,also don’t mind me I’m farming likes too
In the real note , both of these guys are really good but I’m slightly favoring feaniix he did very good and I think he’s one of the best BW player out there , next to dnb and evi but bushtush is top notch player too

DPP: Drud vs GeneralAnnoyance
Every time I say drud going to win he losses so
I’m curious to see if drud will continue to do good in this toerhere after lackluster performance in swsh
He seems in his comfort zone here so this going to be interesting he also won vs the same opponent previously
