Khalid and I talked about it, and he gave me Abdulla as his last name. It’s common journalism practice to use a full-name on first reference and then the last name from then on out.
Traveling to compete in another region’s events was slightly less common before this year, where the circuit’s structure encouraged that. But as for the strength of individual regions and whether players search out weaker ones for easier points, a lot comes down to perspective. Japan and South Korea are 100% an uphill…
I guess since I haven’t played Hearthstone in a while (and never played at the highest level), I may not be qualified to say this. But I feel like this card would only be good if your deck was about to run out. Otherwise, the two decks mixed together screws up each others’ synergy by making it harder to draw what each…
I appreciate the efforts to helping me keep improving! And that is actually a pretty good crack at the headline! Glad you’ve enjoyed things, too.
I mean, we didn’t say never — just rarely. And as for talking about the sets, it isn’t easy to do that in a space of a headline in a way that an audience would understand.
It’s the sets, as well, which you don’t see elsewhere. And also, the point is that you don’t see this in the rest of the world’s meta. Whimsi may indeed be pretty popular in Japan, but it hasn’t seen any higher level success outside of it.
And that’s fair. But it’s a good idea to at least learn the fundamentals with some standard stuff too, just to get your bearings. Also, while Pachi was an inspired pick by Sejun, do keep in mind that he didn’t necessarily do it to play with something different. He just aptly recognized that it was the best fit on his…
This is what I thought a couple of years ago, but it’s really simple to get into. Just watch some games, tinker with teams that already exist, and have fun. You’ll improve in no time!
Yes — that is an Eviolite Clef! The reason people choose that over Clefable is because of the Friend Guard ability, with Clefable doesn’t get. Plus, with Eviolite, it’s basically as tanky.
A Brazilian player lost to Javier in the top four, but he was very close to making it to the finals. Ashton beat a Peruvian player in his top four match as well. There was definitely LATAM representation in top 8, but this time they didn’t quite make it all the way.
There’s also top cut of the Pokemon VGC Utah regionals going on right now on twitch.tv/nuggetbridge! One more top 8 match (one that should be very good), and then Top 4/finals!
That is beyond sleepy day at work tomorrow. That’s like, sleeping at work tomorrow.
Dilemma: I really want to play this game all night long, but I have a friend visiting from Boston that I don’t see very often. If drinks are at 6:30 and bed is at 11, what time do I leave drinks to come home and play this game?
You should check out one of my other articles that’s linked at the bottom. It’s all about a player who is dedicating his season to using Eevee!
For those interested, Gio has one of the best (if not the best) VGC YouTube series. He uses his Eevee team and puts in hours of work to make it feel like the original anime. You can check it out here!
Not in reverse, but it does trigger the attack boost and not grant any recover. Goodra is used occasionally for that purpose.
Legendaries aren’t unbearable though! Even that Celebii would go down to a Scizor’s Bug attack and not take much damage. And while it may be easy to get them, it’s not easy to get a competitive one with the right IVs and nature. In fact, that’s much harder than breeding. So it’s a trade off. For a little extra work,…
From Smogonbird to Nannybird
What makes me sad about this game is the fact that I don’t have a computer good enough to play it on :(
