Pb back to give some updates before this big tournament this weekend.
I found myself and my nerves were everywhere. I woke up several times last night to feeling stressed and not knowing why. Eventually, I realized I was so stressed because I really want to get a photo with 3x World Champion, Ray Rizzo. (You might notice I'm a bit of a fanboi)
Anyways, I am preparing for this tournament in every way I know!
I am taking time not playing Pokémon. CRAZY! I know. Why not practice the game that I will be playing all weekend? Well, it's good to get some rest and not burn yourself. It seems like an obvious thing, but not all people realize it.
I am also watching players battle on showdown rather than battling 24/7. If I do battle I limit myself to 4 a day. Why do I do this?
Well after reading many other commentaries on rushing through battles, I agree with the statement that if you do not go back and evaluate what you did in your battles, you do not gain anything useful for future battles.
Pokémon is a game of knowledge. Going back into your battles allows you to get that information, as well as understanding your own battles and information. This information can be how fast another Pokémon is compared to yours, or what are the most popular Pokémon to face your team. You also obtain the information of what Pokémon your opponent thinks your bringing. With this information, I can out-predict my opponent for a nice Turn 1 Play.
Best of all, I am preparing my team for the tournament on Saturday. That is perhaps the most important thing. Make sure you have the necessary Pokemon for the big day!
That's it for me now, I'll be on, on Saturday to report more! MY GOAL: TOP 16, or TOP 32.
