Regionals 2006 in the New Yorker hotel
That was a nice place
Agreed MK. Tom Shea & Co. always a good event...it was fully accessible by all....no need to beg for a ride
Parsippany by car is a lot easier for me than 34th and 8th by train. Convenient for one > convenient for all.
Exactly my point.....talking about access not convience
it was nice when you went 6-0 and i beat you :]
you better treat my steelix ex right :lol:
thats kind of sad.
Dont remind me of that event. I lost to Gino in less than 1 turn. Ruins = 4 Prize via 2 Ex at the end of my turn then he takes another Ex out on his turn to take a 2-6 advantage to a win. I wasnt very happy. However, I will hopefully do well even though, I really have to think hard about what to play for Regionals, it really is a hard choice.
Lets not forget that you have to think of what everyone around you in your divison. Then you will know what to counter in your deck.
Wasn't that the regionals when I left my queendom deck at home in RI and when I came up to New York the only deck I could play was the Dustox ex that was sitting in my binder? That was like in pokemon THEE WORST DAY OF MY LIFE! That was a funny tournament. though. Yeah drew you better think hard for regionals! Theres only one bro. GOTTA MOVE FASTER. As for me im SPEEEDINNNNNNNN! O yeah christian you gots to text me round by round at regionals.
No, you played Machamp. It was the one that Chris won with Mewtrick.
AnimeDDR110 - That's not true. Just because I won states with Banette doesnt mean players will flock to it or Magmortar as a counter. It just means that for that 1 tourney it was good. I expect almost nobody to really consider changing their deck from states, except for making tweaks to it that will help it work better for regionals. I am still tossed in the air about what I should play. The format is so messed up that you can play A,B, or C, but the fact is that it is such a crap shoot to what will actaully win. If you read my post on the What will win regionals I go in depth on my thought on all 3 decks.
Actually, he played Dustox. I've faced him using LBS, and he had the advantage. >.>
I love how drew reminded me of using machamp. When I was coming to NY I originally had Queendom w/ Dark Hypno over milotic. I left my deck at home. :frown: Then somehow I took out Machamp for Nidoqueen just because Machamps my boy for the LCQ & Worlds. But yeah dont ever play a pokemon because you like it. I learned that the hard way. Although from my view its only bad matchup was queendom and ludicolo and metanite which werent popular at the events. When I first got into worlds 06 after top 32 I seriously thought you could switch your deck for top cut. I was madd heated when I couldnt play my Queendom w/ hypno. If I could go back in time i'd totally switch it up. Thaz what I get for not reading things properly. Good times. :lol:
PS: I went 3-3 with dustox that day and lost to 3 LBS that day because mr. mime wrecked my basicially starter deck.
I'm sorry drew, i thought you play G&G at both states.
I expect that only masters players will be playing bannette mostly.
Since many people in Masters play G&G around the NJ/NY area.
But, hey, you never know.
about the A B C part or the rock,paper,scizzors part You are Wrong
Think of it like this if you think of it like RPS
Magmortar = Rock
G&G = Paper
Banette = Scizzors
Banette kills G&G (cuts the paper), Magmortar kills banette (Smashes the Scizzors), G&G can beat Magmortar (paper covers rock, Rock is still fine)
My point is that Magmortar has a fairly ok chance at G&G.
if you look at it like this
Banette to G&G 80-20
Magmortar to Banette 85-15
G&G to Mortar 60-40 or 55-45
think about that when making a choice. (G&G isn't BDIF)
I'll be going to this one. I got 2nd at NY states in Juniors.
You and drew are idiots XD LOLZ umm guy you got grinders and top 32 in worlds with it eww what a bad deck XD it was rogue and pretty hawt
IM GOING TO THIS REGIONALS!!!! As long as nothing happens!!!! Btw why is regionals in the middle of no where instead of New York City
Yes, GG is BDIF, and the fact you have no clue what your talking about. GG in at Regionals will play Dusknoir. I would like to see you play Magmortar with only 3 Benched Pokemon, and GG having a full bench. I am thinking you will have problems. Banette, isnt an 85-15 underdog, it is worse that that, however the fact that Magmortar loses to GG is why nobody plays it in our area. Banette is beatable by a standard GG list if you know what your doing.
Thanks for calling me an idoit. I made T32 at the same Worlds, only difference is that I got stalled out, Gino just str8 up lost. :tongue:
Peter - I lost to Machamp. I am positive of it, there was no Dustox Ex in his deck. I was playing EspyCham and I wouldnt of been able to take any prizes if that was the case.
I am not talking about Magmortar Typhlosion Delcatty which would obviously stumble due to Dusknoir but I don't want to spam this thread with an argument so lets agree to disagree. I guess I shouldn't even talk since I'm not inn your division but IMO Magmortar/claydol can beat G&G.
Drew, if you were talking about the Regionals in the New Yorker hotel, Gino played Dusty
Eh, you know what, it doesnt matter, however what does matter is the Regionals in about 2 weeks that I don't have a deck for. Because that isn't a good thing. :nonono:
