It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.

There are bad ways to win-and good ways to lose. What's interesting and troubling that it's not always clear which is which. A flipped coin doesn't always land heads or tails. Sometimes it may never land at all...

Love is a lot like Pokemon. You start out with a starter and it means a lot to you. But, throughout your life, you would run into other Pokemon. For some, you'll use an Pokeball and others you would use a Great Ball or even an Ultra Ball. You might even run into some rare Pokemon or Legendary Pokemon. You might catch them and you might not, but no matter what you do; save your Master Ball. Save your Master Ball for the one that is truly legendary.

A Caterpie may change into a Butterfree, but the heart that beats inside remains the same.

Of course, there are lots of outlaws in this world. They are caught and punished, but... But... Truly bad Pokemon don't really exist anywhere.

You both use "justice" as an excuse! So you could do whatever you want! I thought you and I were two threads in the same stitch...

They're fine to go in the original thread, but honestly you could make an entire thread onto yourself for them if you wanted. or you could put them RMT.

Sorry I'm late, that sounds like a perfectly good idea. Just make sure the replay quality is high or at least showcases something specifically.

EST is GMT-4 (when on daylight savings), right? So 1 am EST is 9 PM GMT. But, yeah, I can battle you Sunday at that time. I can't play Monotype, though.

No problem, bad days happen. Not like it mattered anyways. I've no grudge or anything.

Okay. That's nice of you, and I see the sense in that. trachy has been playing Pokemon probably since BEFORE I even watched the anime, so although he's says he's inexperienced in the metagame, he's still a fearsome player. Anyway, as you probably read the comments in the thread, the general opinion is to let things slide. I think the timing (my bad) was off, leading to the issue, but if it was legal at one time, then changing teams doesn't make sense. Besides, inactive as he is onsite, I doubt trachy would go out the way to make a whole 'nother team. Not that he's some kind of douche, but I bet he's busy with Uni and all.

So, with your okay, we'll let Round 3 commence!

Peace ^_^
And here's to the both of us winning the next few tourneys! :D

I'm really very, very sorry. I had important exams and HAD  to devote my time to them.
It sucks that you lost  :(
About teams being qualified or not, there's a bit of a controversy due to the tiers being modern. This time around, we'll try and take a call and see how that goes. This happened before in the first round with sumwun and A Geeky Jawa. The thing is, he is 'technically' correct. And you can't really argue against that. Besides, his team is not off by a huge margin, maybe by one point or two at the maximum. But I'll cross check; I literally just came online and saw your message.

My question to you is simple: Would you be okay if his team is declared valid, or do you insist on a rematch? There's also a policy of no team changes, so if he has to change his, then you'll be at a disadvantage, so keep that in mind. If he doesn't change his team, that's just a rematch and that's totally up to him and how active he is that will decide whether he'll take you up on your offer; he is not obligated to do it then. I'd really appreciate it if you could let it slide, because we have many more tournaments lined up, all ready to take place on our updated server. However, I'd understand if you wanted to have a  rematch. I know I would, to be honest. Knowing trachy though, he *probably* made a mistake, but seeing how he is a veteran user I think he built a team using previous tiers without crosschecking, without giving it too much of thought, as opposed to with intent to cheat. We'll have to ask him that. Have you talked to him about it? That would definitely help us come to a solution rather quickly. If you did, let me know what he had to say about that.

Hit me up on my wall ASAP so we can do the required. Also, sorry again for the delay. :(

I'm ready anytime, and I'll try to be active on the server.

No problem! Good luck and win for me okay?! :D

But I'd say it's already started. All we have to do now is set the end date, actually. Round 2 commences as soon as Round 1 is done. I was thinking by Friday or Saturday Round 2 should conclude, so you can bounce that idea in the Meta and see how that plays :)
