    Yeah so this is my report of UK Nationals. I played Plox on the day and I did quite well with it.

    Round 1 v Callum
    It was Magkiss v Plox. I started with Baltoy T_T. He started with a Magmar. I set-up a furret and start getting the cards I need. Gallade KO's 3 of his Pokémon. He's setting up an Magmotar on his bench with 5-6 energies on while he has one as active with 2 Energies. I play Cyclone energy on Gallade and make the Magmortar on his bench (with 5-6 energies) become the active Poké and Gallade Psychic Cuts for an OHKO. Then Gallade sweeped the other Magmortar for game.


    Round 2 v Luke P
    He sets up a Magmortar decently fast while I have troubles with Ralts, meaning they didn't show up. He sets up Crystal Beach leaving me in a pickle but I luckily get a Roseannes and bring Tauros (to get rid of Crystal Beach) and Ralts to candy into a Gallade and start attacking his Magmortars. Gallade gets KO'd after a while but I have Gardevoir on the bench waiting. Gardevoir finished the Magmortar off ftw!


    Round 3 v Fares
    He sets ups Empoleons amazingly fast while I'm stuck with sentrets. T3 he sets up 2 Empoleons and sweeps I manage to stop him from making me lose via bench but eventually lose because of not having a bench.


    Round 4 v Connor
    He starts with Togepi and I start with Ralts. Ralts sets up into a Gallade T3 and starts sweeping but by that time he had a Magmortar out. Gallade sweeps Magmortars and KO's his bench for game.


    Round 5 v Vince
    Surprisingly this was his first tournament and he had only been playing for 2 weeks and was 3-1 up (Great Job). He tries to set-up some Electivire but I manage to set up nearly everything (Gallade, Gardevoir, Claydol, Furret and Dusknoir). I eventually sweep with Gallade and after Gallade was KO'd I finish with Gardevoir for game!


    I checked the standings and I finished 6th yay! Cut time!

    T16 Cut

    V Jak

    Game 1:He sets up Empoleon T2 and KO's me.

    Game 2: I set up with Furret and about to setup Gallade when he TGW's me. I lose the TGW and get 2 DRE and Warp Point. He sweeps with Empoleon for game!

    The cut standings say I finished 10th nice!

    Best match record so far in swiss (1 loss)
    Better than last year
    Great Venue
    Great Judging/Organizing

    Didn't get any good cards from my packs.
    Didn't make Top 8 T_T

    Anyway thanks to everyone for making it a great day!
