Skulldug, GD, if you two weren't able to get in the battle tonight, then can you please try to fit it in tomorrow (at least so there's still time that day for the battle against Pyro)? If you already battled, then can someone please let me know what the results were?

Incredibly close match o: 1-0 me so far, but it's all up in the air.



I seem to be having unreasonably good luck with freezing things

Anton, I think you have to use the same four Pokemon for each of our battles.

^ You don't have to, so long as you keep using the same Pokemon in your party of six. Sorry if that wasn't made clear.

Shit. Wish I had known that earlier. I've been using the same pokemon for every fight.

Cirdec vs. Whoever... I literally have no idea. I still have gotten nothing back from GD or Skulldug about the results of the play in battle. Which means Pyro hasn't battled yet. Which means there's currently no one to go against you, Cirdec. I'll talk to Smasher shortly about what to do.

Anton, FireEevee, you two will be battling whenever between FE's time window of 5:30 PM EST to 9:30 PM EST. Whatever time works best for you.

I'll be getting ~ice cream~ between like 4:30 and 5:30, so after that is ok. I'll just fire off a PM or query to him when I'm ready.

Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled Trainers should try to win with the Pokémon they love best.

FE won, congrats to him.

While I did have fun with this tournament(s), I do wish that I could face more than maybe 1 person who does not have a copy/paste Smogon team. It felt more like a tier test trial rather than actual battling. Fight with your favorites, fight with your own, fight with creativity and your own style. There is no victory in winning with a team someone else set up.

But I was using my favorites.

Still not any feedback about Pyro and GD?

Nothing about Skulldug and GD at all. Probably going to set a deadline before long and if neither comply with it and get the battle done then I'll be forced to move on with the tournament and have both forfeit.

We have decided to set a deadline for GD and Skulldug. We are giving you two until midnight, TODAY, to battle. If neither of you battle by the deadline then I will consider this a forfeit and will be forced to move on with the tournament with Pyro automatically moving on to battle Cirdec. If this happens, then we will figure out what to do with your tokens for the double tournament.
