Yesterday's tournament

So, there was another Pokémon tournament in the city yesterday! :D

 

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! :D 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 >:D) 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! :o

 

In the end a girl won, which was a first in these tournaments! :D 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!

Sounds very cool. I've been wanting to get into tournaments; but 1) there never seem to be any near where I am; and 2) I don't do well in Double battles, unfortunately...

 

I'll need to practice eventually; maybe in the Battle Subway first.

 

Have they opened up Pokemon to all regions yet? I recall there being a Unova-only limit last year... And I don't have any competitive Unovan Pokemon yet. =P

Every time a new Pokemon game comes out, I say "okay, THIS is the time I finally make a working competitive team" and then nothing comes of it. :P

VGC2012's rules allow all Pokémon, as will VGC2013 I imagine.

 

Next week's tournament will be VGC2012.

Ddude: I said that for HGSS, and I actually made it then. =P

 

MoZ: Nice; that's good, then. I have a team, then. Dunno how well it works, and it's not final(Since I have a new member that's just waiting to be trained and gotten moves onto); but it'd probably do. =)

 

That's pretty cool, though; so it's an official tourney? =)
