Yikes, much poorer showing than last season for me! Part of it was because of real life getting in the way, so when I had a bad run in Special, I never got to recover from it like I usually do.
The other reason is that much like Psynergy , when I could have done a ladder rush near the end... I got hit by the Zelda bug lol. God that game is so addictive! Please take notes gamefreak, THAT is how you design a world!
Finally managed to break the 1800 barrier(1828) just today. Quite glad about the rating since it's a big step up from the previous season mostly because now I have a few good teams in comparison to before. Will try to reach the 1900s next season :)
I got 1686, which I'm actually happy with. This season was my first in SM, and I had a rough start trying to find a cohesive team that worked for me. I started getting steady wins with my current team, so I feel like busting 1700 should be manageable this next season.
Was hoping to make 1800, but I ran out of time near the end with qualifying for another tour so I didn't quite get to make it. I was really confident with the team I was using at the end so I feel I can do really well next season. I also have a terrible doubles score, but I wasn't really motivated for that this time

The team is built around Zard and removing walls so it can win. I have Stealth Rock + Helmet Landorus to help Zard X sweep and beat Mimikyu. Aegislash helps removing annoying fat mons like Cresselia and Porygon2. Tapu Fini helps against opposing Zard X, Blaziken and just overall helps with the synergy of the team. I added Tapu Lele because I wanted a Scarfer and a way to revenge pokemon to help Charizard win. Thundurus-T was an additional sweeper that could be used against teams that Charizard was less good against and it overall helps remove threats to the team like Tyranitar and Tapu Fini.
finally posting here to motivate my lazy ass to ladder more..
I played a bunch of matches yesterday before the maintenance kicked in, but thanks to a couple disconnects I didn't get the anticipated 1600 anymore. meh
