my heart goes out to all you sinners
is a Tiering Contributoris a Past SPL Champion
TDK Today at 22:01 lily my team has decided we will not have a team name (8) vs. (2) Bebo Brand Barboaches

SS: lax vs. Bushtush
SS: Aliss vs. Meru - Aliss games seemed less shakier but she really needs to bring an exca answer :worrywhirl:
SS: EviGaro vs. Notily - as much as i like notily's teams i think they can still improve a bit playing wise so i'll go with the more proven player
SM: Xiri vs. Adaam
ORAS: Pak vs. Cynde
BW: choolio vs. Finchinator - even if choolio is a known force in bw uu i'll be bolding finch because he prob will come with freshier stuff
DPP: watashi vs. fatty - should be a good one, both are good but fatty needed some luck to win last week and watashi had some good performances so far
ADV: eden vs. r0ady
GSC: Raichy vs. Leru - prob an upset since i don't know how much raichy has played gsc uu in particular but i trust my fellow latino gamer to win this
RBY: Amaranth vs. tlenit

Lake of Outrage Sandacondas (7) vs. (2) L.A.P.R.A.S

SS: sensei axew vs. hs - hs just doesnt lose in 2021 LOOOOOOL WHATS HAPPENING
SS: Punny vs. km - i think km has brought some cool stuff and even if hes coming from a good 2-0 i think that his streak will stop there since Punny is prob one of the best players in ss but i definitely can see the upset if km gets his tech(s) right
SS: umbry vs. xujing691691
SM: Gondra vs. pokemonisfun
ORAS: esche vs. daunt vs
BW: Mr.378 vs. Shiba
DPP: Expulso vs. LpZ - lpz is definitely capable of winning this but he has been playing mostly gsc and bw recently so i'll give the edge to the player that has been playing the tier more
ADV: Garay oak vs. Cam
GSC: Trevelion vs. Indulge in dreams - honestly no clue
RBY: EB0LA vs. Drogba In Shenhua

Paniola Primarinas (4) vs. (6) Dragon's Den Dragonairs

SS: star vs. mncmt - should be a banger but i think star is just crazy good lately and who knows what lily will pass him
SS: Mimilucha vs. pdt - despite last game's week i still think mimilucha is decent enough but i feel like pdt will be able to punish him with his aggro plays
SS: xavgb vs. Luirromen
SM: Santu vs. odr - two good players but i didnt like too much odr's game last week and santu played wellvs rob
ORAS: DrReuniclus vs. Chaitanya
BW: Lilburr vs. Amukamara - lily is known to play bw low tiers but amukamara has been playing the tier in uu tours for a decent amount of time now so he may be able to make use of a possibly deeper understanding of the meta but i could see lily taking it as well
DPP: Heysup vs. accel
ADV: Hyogafodex vs. BigFatMantis
GSC: Holly vs. Estarossa - the hype gsc aficionados match, going with esta mostly because he's coming from a win vs Leru last week but even if i have -30 knowledge about gsc i expect it to be a cool one
RBY: Koalacance vs. Torchic - honestly i have no clue but torchic is apparently a boomer so i'll bold them

Los Cherno Bouffalants (0) vs. (0) Meteor Falls Lunatones

SS: mushamu vs. Feliburn
SS: Luthier vs. beatiful
SS: Lyss vs. KSt3ve
SM: robjr vs. ark

GSC: Raichy vs Leru - Probably an upset like Askov said but Raichy is also p solid at GSC honestly. If Leru brings something other than Stall/Baton Pass this week I think this would be a very even mu though, but think there's a definite risk of getting prepped hard for if they repeat this pattern, (which they honestly did in Week 1 of UUSD after UUPL with the mime gyara stuff into shuckle stall but some bad turns from vani ended up saving it from what I heard since i missed that game)

GSC: Trevelion vs Indulge In Dreams - I hadn't heard of Indulge in dreams before today, but I've not really been impressed with the teams Trev has brought so far, which is really holding him back, they've had some noticeable issues imo. No idea how this will go though.

GSC: Holly vs Estarossa - We're playing on Saturday evening UK time, be there or be square, should be hype if one of us doesn't hax each other like always seems to happen in our friendlies.

GSC: vani vs HSA - Very hard to predict again HSA. vani will have his work cut out for him this week with the toughest opponent of this whole tour, but with rob support and vani being a solid GSC player he could definitely pull this through if he brings a solid team, but atm I wouldn't predict anyone in the pool against HSA.

:Scyther: WEEK 3 INDIVIDUAL MANTIS RANKINGS :Scizor:
(approved and sorted by NASA and OPEC)

Decided to do this again for Week #3. All of the Dragonairs are obviously #1 in their respective tiers so I won't be ranking them here since it would be unfair to everyone else.

I did these based on a combination of Week 1 + Week 2 performance (I do watch all of the actual games, so not just based on record but performance also for the games themselves) and past pedigree/performance overall in tiers or mons generally. These rankings mean next to nothing but not totally nothing so here we go:

:Hatterene: SS RANKINGS :Aegislash:
  1. Star
  2. beatiful
  3. Punny
  4. Meru
  5. Luthier
  6. Lyss
  7. hs
  8. Umbry
  9. KM
  10. lax

:Scizor-Mega: SM RANKINGS :Latias:
  1. Santu
  2. pokemonisfun
  3. robjr
  4. Adaam

:Sylveon: ORAS RANKINGS :Celebi:
  1. Pak
  2. DrReuniclus
  3. Scalescale
  4. Bouff

:Victini: BW RANKINGS :Druddigon:
  1. Mr.378
  2. Finchinator
  3. choolio
  4. ninjadog

:Venusaur: DPP RANKINGS :Uxie:
  1. Heysup
  2. fatty
  3. watashi
  4. Expulso

:Kangaskhan: ADV RANKINGS :Linoone:
  1. Roseybar
  2. r0ady
  3. eden
  4. Garay Oak

:Nidoqueen: GSC RANKINGS :Granbull:
  1. HSA
  2. Leru
  3. vani
  4. Raichy

:Tentacruel: RBY RANKINGS :Dragonite:
  1. Koalacance
  2. EB0LA
  3. phoopes
  4. Amaranth


Disagree with these? Well then let's see yours! Join the party by calling 1-800-do-my-rankings and show them today!

SS: vs. lax vs. Bushtush: My Guy is 0-2, though he's been robbed off a 100% win last week. It's a rough start, but it'll get better soon, Bush is a good enough player and I trust he can bounce back. Don't think now is the time though, lax is a great player and has looked sharp with his playing in SCL throughout multiple tiers, so he should have no problems translating his success to SS UU once again.
SS: vs. Aliss vs. Meru: Doing it so Aliss doesn't angry react my post.
SS: EviGaro vs. Notily: Honestly quite bored since I left this match for last to predict so pardon me if I assume something out of my ass. Anyway, Evi has brought some cool stuff, with an interesting approach in a Sand team w1, without an actual way to beat Skarmory. That was, until Luirromen deliberately decided to get rid of it. She seems to be doing fine as long as she brings something solid and keeps her cool during the match. Notily didn't play an optimal game vs Luirro last week, and also brought a hell of an Amoonguss weak team and it didn't look appealing to me. He would need to improve a bit in both aspects if he wants to get this dub.

SS: sensei axew vs. hs

SS: Star vs mncmt: Star's prob had the most dominant year for a player in recent UU team tours history, considering he won all of them in a row into making finals of UUWC not long ago, while achieving an impressive 13-3 record across 2021. He also beat Punny w1, and Punny is the greatest. The first few lines would be sufficient enough for me to bold him against anyone... that's not mence. My good buddy hasn't had a great time lately, as he just came back from roosting on the bench last week in fear of facing The Tush (justifiably so), and a rather lackluster performance on his end in the final weeks of SCL. That said, he's still really good and I prob consider him to have the highest ceiling out of anyone in the pool, though it still comes down to whether or not his PU mon team nº 13 works. But now seriously, mncmt is the kind of player that will silently make progress with his unique plays, going on a killing spree before you even notice, and I just think it is unlikely that a player of his caliber goes 0-2. Will be a close one, this was more of a gut call though, hella excited for it.
SS: Mimilucha vs pdt: Don't know Mimilucha enough, but they have done well in Majors from what I've seen and they played decently vs mushamu last week as well as using a good team, though they have fumbled the bag quite a bit in the second half of the game, but that's understandable since they're rather new. By the time I'm writing this, KM just had their Swampert whipped by a Zarude turn 1 and this reminds me that pdt also felt the urge of throwing his Primarina to one for some reason when HE ALSO HAD A MOLTRES !!! HELLO?? Anyway, pdt is known for making these flashy plays often, although they've been rewarded less lately, but nonetheless he should have the advantage as he's more experienced in team tours, has the basic knowledge of the typ-, of building and playing, etc, Mimilucha could stand a chance if they can control their nerves, but pdt just pairs well vs newer users as he likes to take advantage of telegraphed plays.
SS: xavgb vs Luirromen: Between being the better player, more active in the tier, and also being able to make great use of his creativity (which goes as far as using... Choice Band Kommo-o), I believe Luirromen has all the tools to play a great game and win comfortably. I do not know xavgb.

SS: mushamu vs Feliburn: Mush has had better teams, but Felipe is the best player overall and he's also looked less shaky than mush, who's played nicely but last week left a bit to desire. Feli also used a hella cool team, with the Kee Reuni, so creativity isn't an issue. Hopefully mush proves me wrong and wins.
SS: Luthier vs beatiful: Close match between two good players but I rate Luthier's builds more, plus he has more experience with the tier and his matches were more convincing, taking down Bush for the first blood in Week 1, and he couldn't do shit vs Star last week. Bea, however is 2-0, but hasn't been outstanding if I'm being honest, he got a bit lucky last week with the Draco miss, which cost umbry the game in what could've been a Conk sweep. Week 1 is something I wanna forget, but it was more of a Raptor loss than Bea winning, not to discredit him or anything.
SS: Lyss vs KSt3ve: Lyss is 2-0 and defeated Lily pretty convincingly last week, and I've enjoyed the teams she used. Haven't seen anything from KSt3ve since his Week 1 game, against moi, and that game made me question the Lunatones' support as he seemed rather lost in the builder, in comparison to Lyss who seems to be in a far more comfortable spot with Askov and Jade backing her up. I'd need to see more from KSt3ve in order to bold him with any real conviction.
