Posted by Thomas Whitehead

These guys don't mess around

In recent times the 2013 Pokémon World Championships have had a couple of mentions on Nintendo Life, with the Vancouver event hosting gamers from around the world and champions stepping forward from the battling chaos. Not all of us could be there for the action, of course, so The Pokémon Company has kindly uploaded plenty of footage for us all to enjoy.

Below is the Pokémon Video Game Masters Division final between Arash Ommati from Italy and Ryosuke Kosuge from Japan. This video even has some sport-style commentary in case you don't actually know what's going on, but this is certainly a good chance to see two of the best players in the world do battle over the prestigious title.

Check it out below, while this playlist has plenty more videos to enjoy.

So, does the winner get a "Free Bully Pass"?
I'm sure there a line outside, waiting to get their hands on their underwear's.

Love that there playing Blue's theme best champion and rival. But anyway that Ryosuke dude is making to many mistakes that cost him the match.



Gioku said:

Is there some special benefit to having shiny Pokémon? Or is he just showing off?

Also, I never would've thought that Amoongus would be such a good Pokémon!



EverythingAmiibo said:

That (game 1) was an awesome battle! That double hit on Creselia after Heatran protected and his amazing use of spore was great!



ShadowFox254 said:

@Gioku No, is just to show off since legit shiny Pokémon might not have the right nature and perfect IVs. But no way in hell that dude is using legit shiny Pokémon.



Gioku said:

@ShadowFox254 That's what I figured! I didn't remember there being anything special about shiny Pokémon, other than being hard to come by, but I wasn't sure.



ShadowFox254 said:

@Gioku Sorry, forgot to add that Amoongus is not that much of a threat on singles, but doubles and triples is pure annoying.

Amoongus move set when facing a pro:
Spore, Rage Powder, Giga Drain, Protect



Gioku said:

@ShadowFox254 Like I said, Amoongus sure doesn't look it! I would not have expected Amoongus, of all things, to be a key player on the world champion's team!



ShadowFox254 said:

@Gioku You be surprise any Pokémon can do with the right move set. Like this one time a freaking Aron LV1 sweep my entire team in a wifi match.



ShadowFox254 said:

@Greenalink I say good luck to the people wasting their time then to get a legit shiny Pokémon by resetting until it's shiny and even if you have it shiny you can't use it in a pro match if the nature isn't right, the IVs are not 31, and also EV train.



Greenalink said:

Getting a shiny easily is only possible if you know both the Trainer's ID and the Secret ID. Getting 31 IVs (or a few 30s for a certain Hidden Power type) and nature isn't that hard to achieve on Black/White.

RNG Egg Breeding IVs (Shiny Deino timid with 31 IVs and knows Dark Pulse)

Getting a Flawless Genesect, Hasty with 31 IVs on White 2 - only took 2 attempts.



Gioku said:

Hmm. Yep, I just read up on RNG abuse, and it is a (relatively) simple procedure. He easily could have, and probably did, use RNG abuse to get shiny Pokémon that also have the correct IVs and nature.

A shiny Pokemon's sparkly entrance into battle takes at least one extra second off the timer. It might not seem like much time, but that time can add up and actually win games based on making the timer run out while having more Pokemon or hit points than the opponent!
