Hello all, I just took part in the recent 2013 Spring Friendly. It was my first tourney, and great experience to start to get in to wifi battle. I have had a few experiences with wifi battle previously, but not to the extent of the tourney.

I finished with something around 90 battles and rating of 1598. I tracked my battles, but have not tallied them up, I would say I was winning somewhere around 50%.

Regardless, I had more or less put this team together the week before and it did "ok." But I also didn't expect to see UBER spam of legendaries, keldies, kyurems, reshis/zekkis, genie trio all day long. The tourney was limited to Gen V, thus some of the selections made.

Now that I've had some fair experience with them, I'd like it rated please (for possible continuance in wifi battle)! Thank you so much in advance!

Starmie (Focus Sash)

I liked opening with Scrafty if I felt a safe Dragon Dance was available to me. He has drain punch to recover life, and ice punch to lay down some hurt on dragons. Starmie was also a good lead as I could scout out and get at least a 2HKO on most of the Dragon/Uber garbage in the tourney. From there I would bring gliscy to toxic sub stall if I saw earthquake or electric coming. Volc/Hyd were good fast hitters to clean up anything left over in play.

Thanks again!
