A bit of a weird one this time, we (Matthew Hui and Justin Lok) will be sharing our thoughts and experience on a rather quirky team that we piloted in back-to-back tournaments in Malaysia, with varying degrees of success. Continue reading “Superior Surge: Malaysia (Open +) MSS Dec 2017”
Hello, I’m Alan Chia, a long-time member of The Mirage Island. After taking a hiatus during VGC16, I took a step back from my staff duties to get back to playing this year. This report houses my reflections after using this team for 2 months across 3 major events. Continue reading “A Whimsical Performance – Malaysia Regionals 20th Place”
Report posted on behalf of Matthias (@Mattadome02).
Hey guys, I’m Matthias Teo and I play in the Seniors division, where I recently got 3rd at the 2017 Latin America International Championships. With it being my first year playing VGC with a competitive mindset and a hunger for the World Championships, I thought it would be a pretty good idea to write about the choices I made in the season up ‘till now, both in my play and in teambuilding.

This is Eugene Tan and I’m back writing a report on the Singapore Open II tournament. This team was built together with Martin back in February this year. In my opinion, it’s hard to pilot this team right now as it is outdated, though surprisingly, it was strong enough to take me to a Top 4 finish this tournament.
NOTE: The team’s dated origins unfortunately mean that I’ve forgotten some of the specific targets my EV spreads hit. Regardless, I think they’re mostly outdated and wouldn’t recommend ripping them anymore. Continue reading “Redesign, Rebuild, Reclaim and Report – Singapore Open II Top 4 Report”
Justin Lok, back again with another team report, after I placed Top 4 in the most recent Malaysia Open, and Champion in the Malaysian Regionals.
The team has not changed much since my previous endeavour in Melbourne, but the minor changes seem to have been enough to push my performance beyond what I’m used to. I’ll be giving insight into the team (some of it repeated from my previous report so please bear with me ><), and taking you through my journey in the Malaysian Regionals (to the best of my memory) Continue reading “Perseverance does pay off – A Malaysian Regional’s Champion Report”

Hey everyone, Chelsea Tan (@komalavgc) here. Recently, I finished Top 4 at the second Singapore Midseason Showdown. Since it is probably the last tournament I will be playing in for a while, I wanted to write a report to share my thoughts on the team I used.

Hey there, my name is Justin Lok, a long time member of The Mirage Island, bringing you my report from the 2017 Oceania International Championships held in Melbourne. Continue reading “Of Bulk and Brainfarts – Oceania Internationals 2017 41st Place Report”
Greetings to all, I’m Martin Tan, also known among my peers in the Singapore VGC community as mewmart. I last wrote a team report in 2015 after my Top 32 finish at the inaugural Singapore Nationals Championships. It feels really surreal to once again be able to share with the community my thoughts, reflections, and insight on the VGC 2017 season thus far. Continue reading “Ballooning with the Hiao Lele – Oceania Internationals 2017 Top 32 Report”
I’m Nicholas Ong, and I placed 2nd (whether or not this position was deserved is up for debate, actually not really :^) ) at the first VGC17 event in Singapore, the Singapore Open 2016, with what could possibly be called the worst team in VGC history second only to Yveltal-Groudon, and maybe bulky Xerneas teams. Speaks volumes about teambuilding in Singapore, doesn’t it? But I’ll get to that later. Continue reading “EXTREME MEME — 2nd place Singapore Open 2016 team”
