    April International Challenge starts today, good luck to all that have entered.

    I have had 3 battles and I am 2 wins 0 losses.

    First battle connection was lost.

    Second battle was awesome, but my leads were put to sleep and I managed a comeback and still won 4-0. It was strange, my opponent had both his leads start with an attack, which I protected with one lead and attacked with the other.

    2nd round he used Tailwind and Spore. 3rd round he attacked my sleeping Pokemon and Spored the other. Luck had it that my first sleeping Pokemon woke up and was using an all enemy attack and fainted one and all but KO'd the second.

    I am really liking this new team so far, still getting use to it.

    The one thing I did not have in the March Challenge was Protect on any teammate. Makes a huge difference.

    I started out so well and my team has fallen apart.

    I don't know if it is my team not jelling well together or my lack of battle knowledge.

    I just had 2 hard fought victories, comebacks at the end. One of which my Swampert Earthquaked my opponents last 2 Pokémon for a win for me.

    The last one came down to Abomasnow and Garchomp vs my Cacturne and Tyranitar.

    Both opponent Pokés were in the red. My Cacturne was at 9 HP and my Tyranitar was at half HP. I had used Sucker Punch a move before and then I used Protect with both Caturne and Tyranitar just to see what was going on. Well my opponent also double protected and I thought, the next round is going to decide this battle.

    Garchomp used Protect and failed. Cacturne used Sucker Punch and failed. Oh I know my Tyranitar is going to hit both opponents now with his Rock Slide, but I also know that my T-Tar is built to be slow, so Abomasnow is going to attack first. Yep, Icy Wind, but it misses my T-Tar and faints my Cacturne. So I pray I don't miss, I also know that Garchomp has Rough Skin and not Sand Veil. I hit and both opponents faint.

    As I watch the final Pokémon, Abomasnow sink off the screen, you have been disconnected.

    I understand this is a game. I understand there are no rules like Sleep Clause, Sand Veil Garchomp, Drizzle + Swift Swim, and so on, but I know everyone has used these rules before.

    And disconnecting when you lose is the worst. A disconnect is worst then a lost, after so many disconnects you cannot battle anymore.

    Show some honor.

    I have never purposely disconnected from a battle to prevent a loss.


    A lot less shiny Pokémon this time around, but still pretty heavy.

    I ask one thing from PokéFarm members old and new, remember what we preach here.

    Win or lose with legit Pokémon.

    Don't rage disconnect.

    I know the GBU Challenge does not have the rule, but seriously putting multiple Pokémon to sleep is going against everything the META game rules were made for.

    There were plenty of times I lost my composer when I was battling. More then I care to discuss, but I found a way to overcome these meltdowns. To take a loss and learn from it.

    Battle with pride, lose with class. Win or lose, you learn.

    April Challenge is now over and I believe the results should be posted after the extended maintenance on Tuesday.

    I did horrible.

    In the March Challenge I was 12 wins 26 losses, with a rating of 1368 pts, and ranked #13648 out of 14531 participants.

    We will see how I did in April, but I don't believe I did any better.

    Well. My rating stayed consistent at a 1:1 basis, although I lost count so I might have got a higher or lower score.

    I ranked much higher this time around, 5390 out 10164. Which I went from the bottom last time to the middle of the pack this time. 1477 pts up from 1368 pts last Challenge.

    10 wins 13 losses in April compared to 12 wins 26 losses in March.

    Although I should have had 2 more wins, but I had 2 connections lost after the last opponent fell. Mmhmm

    So continue to work on my team.

    I really hate to make my team like all the others.

    I have been using my old Royal Flush team, which if anyone knows the comic book Royal Flush Gang, the gang is eternal, we just replace members as they age or go to jail.

    So I have started replacing my old.

    Tyranitar
    Nickname: King
    Item 1: Chople Berry
    Nature: Brave
    IVs: 31 / 31 / 30 / 2 / 31 / 0
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 ATK / 4 SP.DEF
    Ability: Sand Stream
    Move-set:

    • Crunch
    • Rock Slide
    • Low Kick
    • Protect

    Gastrodon
    Nickname: Ten
    Item 1: Rindo Berry
    Item 2: Sitrus Berry
    Nature: Bold
    IVs: 31/ x / 31 / 31 / 31 / x
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 DEF / 4 SP.DEF
    Ability: Storm Drain
    Move-set:

    • Scald/Surf
    • Icy Wind
    • Earth Power
    • Recover


    So now I have to bring in my 3rd new member. I have replaced King and Ten, so I need a new Ace, Jack, and Queen.

    Ace is usually an android, so a Steel type. Scizor and Metagross are the big ones used. My current Ace is a Metagross and does well, so I could maybe reboot him.

    Queen is usually a female, so I was thinking Cresselia.

    I also have a decent Latios, Timid nature and X / X / X / 31 / 31 / X.

    I was thinking of breeding a Chandelure, as a Sunny Day stopper. Maybe a Toxicroak as a Drizzle breaker.

    As far as my Sandstorm team, Omastar I was thinking would make a good addition.
