So I am trying to get better at my competitive battle style and would like some feedback if possible.

I will start posting some battle videos here wins and loses.
If you guys could please give me some tips that would be great.

Here is the first one with a team of pokemon from my Gen IV games that stood out back in the day.
Pretty outdated but I have made a few small tweaks to it.

Jirachi is usually my Trick lead but I'm starting to find it more useful as a mid-late game hinderer instead as it gives me time to decide which opposing pokemon needs crippling the most.

You're supposed to click Share Replay and then use that link. The link you gave just leads to your actual match lobby, not a replay of it.

Hahaha that's right, sorry.

Here's a few:

Also the last guy confused me.
What was up with his attitude? Pretty sure he could have taken me with his Gyarados especially with Dragon Dance. I didn't have anything decent to counter it.

Also what are your thoughts on rematches? Should both players be allowed to switch teams or just the challenger?

Sorry for the multiple posts but I was wondering about the rankings on Showdown.

Do they get reset every so often? A week ago I was at 1400+ but came back on after a week of absence and am now around the 1000 mark.

Good idea.

I only thought the battle board was for requesting battles rather than rating/critiquing them.

So this last battle had me on my toes a bit.
I mean I still lost but it started to go in my direction for a little bit.

Any tips?
