With only two weeks to go til Regionals I've dug out an old team of mine (not the Monofairy one) to do some practice with. Had a couple of decent winstreaks going with it, which is a good sign. Probably just gonna stick with this team at Regionals and then see if there's anything I can do to improve it in time for Nats.

I think my attendance at Nationals is probably going to be dependant on how well I do at Regionals. Money's tight for me and Nationals falls the day after holiday for me, it'll be tricky to fit everything in. We'll see how things go though :)

Most likely playing my top 128 battle in the Nugget Bridge Major on Friday evening. If anyone fancies battling me and pointing out the flaws in my team before then it'd be handy.

Taken the lazy option out of not preparing for Regionals and cobbled together a team from a past team and what I was trying to build for Nottingham. I doubt it'll work very well, but should be fun to play which is important.

A day before the Regionals now! Good luck to everyone who's attending, I'll try and look out for you all. According to the host the swiss should be finished by 6pm, and the top cut (which currently is top 8) is predicted to finish at 9pm

I'm going to have to miss top cut because of train times, but at least should be able to finish Swiss if it does run on schedule. I won't be cutting, but it'll be a shame to not be able to cheer on people I know who do and I wouldn't put it past a few of them.

Regionals today was really good. The organisation was outstanding and everything ran so smoothly. Was great to see people again. Congrats to Xeno on getting Top Cut, known how much you've wanted it and worked for it for such a long time.

Quite pleased with my own performance too. My preparations were lazy and almost non-existent. So, to go 4-4 with Scarf Vivillon's pretty good. I feel like I've learnt things and can take away experience and things from today ahead of Nationals. First time the days of 2nd and 3rd at Grassroots that I've actually come out of a tournament feeling positive. It helps that it's not the last event of the year. It's not "better luck next year". And I felt like I was in every game I played except Round 2 against the person who won.

Sadly, I doubt I'll be able to attend this year's VGC. I've had a lot of work to do and haven't had much time to prep a team. Pretty gutted, but there will be other Pokémon tournaments around my area during summer. So I'll be preparing teams for them.

EDIT: I've managed to scour a team, so I think I might be able to go!

Haven't played at all this year but I'm still going so I imagine I'll be using some generally trolly team

Use Simple Stockpile Numel, you're bound to troll a few people with that...

And yeah, I'm pleased that I managed to top cut Regionals! I hope I can manage a similar result come Nats as I really want to try for the Worlds invite

Can anyone think of a fast, STAB earthquakers? That's the only Pokémon I need for my team now (and yes, I've decided to go to nationals now \o/)

Scarf Garchomp, Excadril if you've got a Tyranitar. Landorus. Landorus is probably the best of those, scarf or non-scarf depending on how fast you want.

Yeah, I got me a Landorus + scarf a friend traded me so all is good.

I nearly have my full team, using two from last year and I currently have 3 newbies. All I need now is a mega.

Going on holiday for the rest of the week and as I'm not going to Nationals myself this year this is the last chance I have to wish everyone here luck for it. So yeah, good luck ONM peeps :)

Thank you :) Here's hoping I can attempt to top cut the tournament after my Regionals performance and get some more CP

Hoping to either do better or match last year's score, being 6-2. I feel my team I'm using this year is a bit more risky, but I'm hoping it'll pull off.

I'd like to push for a good record. I really need to get back on track. 4-4 at Regionals was a good start. 5-3 would do me. Obviously, anything better's looking at cutting. That would be nice, but not expecting that much. Never know, a good day could get it.

Last year got 5-3 (narrowly missing out on top cut lel rip)

Not expecting much this year due to a lack of playing, although I've never been much of one for practice.

I'll be doing a small vlog of the event. So if you spot a guy with long hair (shoulder length), a Ghastly evolution shirt, a Zelda messenger bag and his phone out, that'll probably be me.

My IGN is SBF. So if you battle someone with that name, it'll most likely be me.

Sadly didn't too well today, with 4 wins and 5 losses. My team might have not been the best so I'll be editing a few things.

I also saw Xenoblade Hero and EPD too which was awesome.
