Yoshiatom's Post
I'm feeling pretty stupid, what am I supposed use to connect to #Pokiman? Try to connect through IRC leads to an empty channel (as in, chanserv isn't there) and if try to connect to it through Showdown, it just says it couldn't find the chatroom.

(Also, is there a decent team building guide? I'm starting to realise how under-prepared I am for this...)

What I used to build my team was the smogon pages for the UU, BL2, and RU tiers. You could dip down into NU or PU if you really want to, but really only UU, BL2, and RU are gonna be viable in UU for the most part.

Basically take a look at the Pokémon there. There are movesets and strategy snippets on each one, so you can start building your perfect team.

I just do these competitions for fun, so I don't look into the meta of UU, such as which Pokémon get the most usage. I just start with some that I like a build a team that complements them and covers their weaknesses.

#Pokiman is a channel on the caffie IRC, you can use it if you want but its not necessary. You can use the normal #smwc channel if you want.

The other question was answered by k3fka with this:

Offtopic: I would like to know when are the others ones going to fight.

Eh...I forfeit. UU is even worse than OU in terms of cookie cutter teams.
Megas and Stealth Rocks were a mistake.

Oh ok, no problem.
Impetus, advances to Quarterfinals then, i cant change her position to fight vs Asphalt and moving Carld vs Domiok to Round of 16 since the tournament already started.

Just a heads up guys. Smogon is currently suspect testing Alakazam, meaning that it might get banned from UU in a week, especially after reading the comments of the UU players, so you should consider changing it to something else, or battle as fast as possible before the test ends. Oh yeah, and because of this, you won't be able to practice in the ladder if you have Alakazam in your team, as the regular UU ladder was replaced with the suspect test one, and the Pokemon in question is banned there, but this might not be relevant.

Posting this myself just so LloydJara didn't have to double post (not like there is anything wrong with that). I was the one mentioning it to him anyway.


REMEMBER TO REMOVE ALAKAZAM FROM YOUR TEAMS IF YOU HAVE IT OR AVOID USING IT IF YOU HAVENT MADE YOUR TEAM ALREADY.

--------------------


Carl and I played, and it was a fun time to be had. Good games, Carl. I hope that you enjoyed them too!

I won the two games.

Yeah I agree, UU is probably the worst tier of all in this gen.

I officially declare Creselia and Crowbat to be my mortal enemies

GG Regardless.

I'll prolly join in the next tourney, but I'll have to play the hell out of Showdown more and do better research. (Honestly, I don't remember being *that* bad at Pokémon...)

UU seemed a bit better when Amoonguss, Quagsire (Despict the fact they are stall Pokemons, and they give cancer) and Zapdos were available in that tier (Specially Zapdos since it fit in most teams). When all those Pokemon went to OU due to the fact Stall is getting really popular UU turned into a "bad tier".

Practice Makes the master.

Anyway. I would like to know when mariocool and a hick are going to fight since i have no news about them and i couldnt find them on the IRC to talk (I would send a PM but they may simply not reply).

You guys have until Tuesday 7th to fight (Just like Quizler and Supertoad, but i already talked with Quizler and he is gonna fight toad soon, so i dont have to worry about, Asphalt and Domiok have until Thursday 9th [Talked with Domiok already about Asphalt's inactivity])

Hmm, figure I'll give my own reply to this.

I use a place called Mibbit for IRC.

Not so good with team builds though.

--------------------
Please pardon the eye.
Me VS a hick, 2-0 in my favour.

YOUR layout has been removed.

I do non-kaizo beta tests!
Check my profile for more details.

A Mario and Luigi Story: The Universe's Star Demo 2:
50%
Status: Dead until I regain interest. Link to hack thread.

Two battles of Round of 16 left.
Quizler vs super-toad64 (Deadline Tuesday 7th)
Domiok vs Asphalt (Deadline Thursday 9th)

After these battles take place (or after we reach the last deadline) i will proceed with Quarterfinals.

--------------------


I've been PMing supertoad but he hasn't responded too often. I'm going to be on all day today. If he doesn't show up today, we're just not going to be able to battle. I'll be too busy monday and tuesday.

Already PM Supertoad, i hope he sees the message. Now, if you cant fight i can give you an extention until Friday if you guys really need it.

EDIT: Talked with Quizler, he wont be able to play maybe until next Sunday due to his job and i cant wait that long to continue. Tuesday is the deadline, i cant give more time. Supertoad, try to fight Quizler if you can anyway but i highly doubt you will be able to.


EDIT 2: Supertoad and Quizler, you guys will have until Sunday to fight. Quarterfinals will start on Thursday as planned, even if you havent fought yet.

--------------------


Allright, since Asphalt didnt show up he gets disqualified. Sorry dude.

Quarterfinals Begin!
Note that Quizler vs Supertoad fight is still pending. Nestorvelasquez, you will have to wait a little.
Supertoad is disqualified, too.

REMINDER:


1.Remeber to play using the UU Format and saving all the replays after fighting, otherwise the battles are not valid. Remember that the tournament use the best of 3 system so you will have fight at least two battles before advancing to the next round.

2.You will have a week and a few more days to fight (Until Sunday 19th).If you need an extention for some reason PM me, i have no problem about giving extentions.

3.Remember that you cant fight for the next round until all the battles from the previous round are over. (EX: You can fight your semifinals battle before quarterfinals are over.)

Good Luck, have Fun.

Can confirm dominok beat me 2 to 1.

Regardless, uu is really not a fun metagame. I tried going with a more fun team because everyone was scared the last two games or whatever and tbh the entire uu metagame doesn't support fun .-. I was dieing trying to do anything on ladder lol. If people don't wanna do OU, I'd much rather plau RU or NU, or even Ubers lol. UU is the worst right now ;-;

Too late to change my team anyway.

RIP sniper Kingdra 1st place.

Edit: also yeah gg to Dominok. Apparently I didn't even manage to make a non scary team if he was scared of my sweepers lol, but he beat them anyway~
Good games to Impetus. Those setup sweepers scared me to my britches. Here are the replays for those interested.

Tbh I have some regrets of choosing UU as the tier for this tournament.

Thats why im going to do a poll about the tier for the tournament in August/September. So keep your eyes on this thread so you can vote.

Grats to Domiok, btw, this is the first time he reachs semifinals.

--------------------


By the way, my laptop is currently broken which complicates things for me. The best time for me is gonna be Saturday, so hopefully we can get it done this Saturday.
