boulicrok vs Wail Wailord
KSG vs daunt vs : predicting the upset here, DVS has been performing really well during this SCL while KSG did less, but hes also really willing to perform better and i think the gap between those players is really small, not forgetting KSG had a good shot at winning this game in Week 1 but got unlucky

Interesting Trends:
  1. Week 9: This week saw the resurgence of Abra and the rise in usage of Trapinch. Focus Sash Abra provides one of the few counterplay to Zigzagoon, while Life Orb Abra continues to be one of the hardest-hitting wallbreakers in LC; we even saw underused sets like Choice Scarf Inner Focus Abra. Trapinch continues to see use in a meta where it is needed to weaken/remove Ferroseed and Pawniard. First Impression is also great to have for foes like Galarian Ponyta and Life Orb Abra, which sometimes lack Protect.
  2. Regular Season: Mienfoo ends the regular season with an 86.67% usage and a solid win rate of 50%. Ferroseed finished third in usage with 45.56% and 41 uses and had a great winrate of 58.54%. Natu finished 6th in usage with 34.44% and 31 uses, which is a surprising trend considering that it was brought sparingly in the first few weeks of SCL. Zigzagoon, one of the biggest trends this tour, finished the season with wins in 9/13 uses and a 69% win rate. Some of the lesser used Pokemon that saw great success include Onix and Stunky, which went 4/4 and 3/3 respectively.
Prediction Tour (Updated for Week 9):
https://pokepast.es/61ae9171e99cbde2
Top 3: DVS (35), Pamplona (29), Splash / DC (28)
First place is basically locked in for DVS, so he is getting the Discord Nitro that he sponsored and a drawing from Gummy. However, there is still not an absolute lock-in for second place, who is also gonna get Discord Nitro for a month from ninjadog (so I still encourage ppl to predict). There are 4 pts up for grab (2 in semis + 1 for getting both predicts correct + 1 for finals). I will post the usage stats and prediction scores for both after finals.

Predicts:
boulicrok vs Wail Wailord - his RNG is too good
KSG vs daunt vs - bring my team pls ( :puff: )
