So, there was another Pokémon tournament in the city yesterday!
The tournament used the same rules as the past 3 Nintendo-run tournaments did, so I didn't bother to build a new team. Besides, my last team did well, and there's another tournament next week that uses different rules.
My first round was put on the big screen, this time not by design but by coincidence!
I almost lost the battle but then a communication error (not the only one on the big screen) forced us to restart the battle and let me make up for my mistake. Even then though, I had to work for my victory! Thankfully I was able to get there in a close one.
I ended up losing in the second round though, just like the good old days. The guy who beat me then went on to beat October's champion (who I would've faced in the next round had I won) before falling in the 5th round.
A lot of people were given the opportunity to commentate some matches if they asked! I got the chance, but it was actually because someone else asked: the guy I beat in round 1 in October (The SelfDestructing victim of my Conkeldurr's Wide Guard >
) asked for me to commentate, so I did! He went on to win the match while being able to pull off the Selfdestruct well, meaning he did better than I did!
One player was in hospital, and had his father play on his behalf, giving him commands by phone from his hospital bed!
In the end a girl won, which was a first in these tournaments!
She was one of many competitors that was part of my large circle of friends (whose name I don't think I'm allowed to say because they now have a forum).
Stay tuned for the next tournament next Sunday!
