Regardless of the format, Trick Room has always been a prevalent feature of the VGC meta games; the ability to create a scenario where the Pokémon with the slowest speed stats on the field become the quickest opens the door for many Pokémon which wouldn’t usually see the light of day in competitive play.

With Sun and Moon only a couple of months away, the beginning of the VGC 2017 circuit started this past weekend with Premier Challenges taking place across the UK. Despite very little playing and preparation time, I decided to dust off the ring rust and participate in Manchester!
Since the 2010/11 installment, Fifa has been my go to Football game; almost exclusively due to the online game mode Ultimate Team. The aim?

I saw you standing alone, in the door,
yet I did naught but stare with awe.
Eyes glistened like water as they met those of mine,
hair like the morning sun, how brightly it shines.
A screaming man, stood in the square,
waving documents of hands eternal.
Yet his scream, not that of despair,
a celebration of this forbidden journal.
