T2 at 2 pre-releases, T4 at BR in my first Rating tourney EVAR, T8 Regs in Rockville, T2 Lusby BR,
being at origins, and meeting new people i wouldn't have met otherwise.

It's funny how a little card game can give you some of the best memories.

O yea, and my quote:


WF WANT PARINGS!(like 500 times.)

Jason over Gino.

Seeing all the people that have been the reason I keep playing and going to events at Nationals and Worlds. Pokemon is so much more than a game and I hope everyone can understand that. A great, great season.

Getting back into the game after years of not playing (hadn't picked up the cards since the WotC days). However, my ability to participate is limited by the sheer fact that I can't justify driving 2 hours to get to a League location :/

Winning several Battle Roads and two great City Championships, getting 2nd and 1st at State Championships, making 2nd place of my Nationals, and of course, my team and me being at Worlds and meeting all the famous players.

However, even if this was my most successful season yet, I still hope for next year to see more different decks - metagame was quite boring at some tournaments.

This was my first Pokemon season, so I have quite a few.


-Meeting all the Tassie players and making so many new friends. I won't name you all, but you guys know who you are.

-My first ever win at league. I pwned some guy's Ponyta's with my Seaking :)

-Nats. I went 1-5 but it was so much fun. Meeting Jared, Jason, Sean and a few others was fantastic.

-Pulling a TSD.



Thanks to everyone for making this season as good as it was!

Same as the poster above me :D, and becomming the dutch 4th at the national champs. Also starting with pokemon and realising how cool the game is and easy it is for anyone to learn.

And the best of all, more than the half of all players played G&G, G&G vs G&G are the best games, who truly show people's skills and luck.

Cheers to '07-'08!

Sorry but that can't beat my epic RPS matches vs John Silvestro. I won every game against him, one of them tieing it 7 times before I finally won. lol The funniest thing was watching his face every time I tied him or beat him. He used cards so I just said what I was using, he would look a combination of shocked and annoyed, then slowly fip the card over with me either winning or tieing. lol

Being good at RPS is a very good skill to have when you run 4 TGW in your deck. ;)

08/25/2008, 11:35 PM
Becoming more used to the game in my 2nd year playing only with myself, no friend/family support.

You, too, had a shocked/ annoyed look on your face when I was about to take 4 prizes in 1 turn
that game ( to win)before you scooped after Clay awarded us a 5 minute time extention for your slow play.

But your right, the 7 ties were pretty cool. You keep winning the wagers, I'll keep winning the
battles- that works for me ;)

Worlds for me. Nationals too. Anyone who knows the whole Aussie top cut drama would know it was an epic victory.

Game against Jimmy on the Saturday night, shuffling; "Someone did WHAT in the open play room!?"

4-3 at Worlds with Raikou/Zapdos/Rotom

Second and Nationals with Empalkia.

Me and Sean's randomness throughout the worlds trip

Regular and new faces at Worlds

Having a great Aussie judge at Worlds!

pretty much nearly this entire season was awesome

For me, it would have to be making T16 at Florida Regionals (not to mention the roadtrip up there with some of my pals). Other memorable monets would have to be my usual T4 at several Prereleases, barely missing top cut at a Cities and a Spring Battle Roads, and my buddy Orion winning Nats.

Hope to have a lot more memorable moments in 2009!

One of the coolest moments for me was having the Pokegym Community come together to get the Schells to Worlds!

I know they busted themselves, but their pictures were, as always, the BEST!

Thanks to all, for a GREAT moment.

Without it, would we have as many great pictures to look at from Worlds?

08/30/2008, 03:15 PM
Well I won 2 prereleases and got 2nd at a BR, so those are all good moments. Though my favorite moments were matches from states. Round 1 at states, I was playing Mag against a Swampert/Other stuff to counter Mag. He had 1 prize left while I had 5, I came back and won. And round 3 was another good one. I was up against a Banette without Crystal Beach. We rolled, I won, and accidentaly let him go first(I had Pachi active). Long story short It came to sudden death and I ran out of steam. I like to think that I would have won if I went first. :P

09/01/2008, 09:14 AM
Playing a retarded Swampert deck and still win some gamesXD. One of my best moments was that I almost made top 4 and to see myself suck so much at pokemon that I concentrated more on my school. And it payed off when I passed my CAE English examination. But this year I am going to try to end up higher in a tournament.

Best moment of the 07-08 Season- Ive earned 135 infraction points here on Pokegym over the past year for just about every reason in the book. Out of curiousity has anyone recived more then me (Not counting Life Bans which is an instant 100 points)?

Just about every moment in this game throughout the past year has been great, at events, at leagues, even moments spend with my fellow players away from Pokemon in genreal has been great.
