Round 22 of the Battle Arcade ; the most nerve-racking in history

Up till this round, I was calmly breezing though battles, abusing the handicap powers of the roulette on my opponent, or strengthening my own forces.

Battle one was simple, a +6 Calm Mind Suicune sweep without an worry. I'm unbelievably confident in my constructed team, and as Psychic Slyvie would say "an aura of invincibility" though this team has lost twice, it's third and current round has been nothing short of my expectations, however.

Battle two of the round appears,...

Eight minutes of pure adrenaline

Posted May 8th, 2009 at 10:16 PM by BeachBoy (Feelin' Fresh)

Rarely, bar Thorton in lv. 50 single, do I find the first encounter with a frontier brain "exciting" or "beyond amazing." They're still using less than tier 4 Pocket Monsters and I know what's coming, so I don't expect wild battles there. Battle 49 is a different story, but in short, 21 isn't usually too much fun for me.

I just started playing the Battle Castle again since my loss, and with a brand new philosophy. (lost at 31 a few weeks ago because I fell asleep, lol) Up until round...

The race to the top! BeachBoy vs. Statistics [ Seven days ]

Posted May 5th, 2009 at 6:32 PM by BeachBoy (Feelin' Fresh)

If you read my Twitter, found my DS, so hell yeah~

The race and survival of the fittest in the cursed bad luck of the Battle Tower.

In seven days, Statistics and I will be racing through the Battle Tower. Whoever lasts the longest, wins.

Difficulty? Hard. Fun? Too much. Pressure? Priceless.

We've got teams to build and strategies to perfect, then it's off to the races. >:D

About time, Thorton.

Just a re-post from my blog over on Bublagarden. :x

If there's any facility I'm in love with thus far, it's the Battle Factory. I just find it fascinating. What team can you patch together in hopes of advancing? If you win, what changes could be made to improve your squad? How will you interpret and use the staff hints? And so on...

Well, I found out a secret. Thorton pays the earlier battlers to throw games! Ever wonder why the Factory gives out more than average Battle...

Battle Tower streak finally comes to an end

Posted December 7th, 2008 at 7:10 PM by BeachBoy (Feelin' Fresh)


Battle #165.
[ Raikou 2 -- Lax Incense (Stats: 165 150 95 135 108 167) Crunch / Thunder Fang / Leer / Double Team (EV'd in: Atk/Speed) ]

I misplayed it. Giving it two turns, Knock Off + Reflect, while it set up. Which was my mistake, and I learned from it. Along with, basically my idol, FastHippo helping me out after the loss and how to go about it next time.

If you want to read about...
