Hawlucha PBN Rankings: January 2017

Yo dawg look at that it's the

POKEMON BATTLE NETWORK
TRAINER RANKINGS
JANUARY 2017


...why the fuck do we even still call this shit PBN?

Anyway, with our last reliable Rankings having been in 2014, we've got very little to work with this go around. As a result things will be a little more iffy from here to there so give a little leeway as things will take a couple doses of Rankings to actually stick.

With that said, let's get right to it by giving everyone something to brag/feel terrible about in this brand new yeah, eh?

Spoiler: show
00. Jerichi / DaveTheFishGuy / Sneaze

01. Connor
02. Snorby
03. Emi
04. Miror
05. Machamp-X
06. Apollo77
07. KamenAeons
08. TheKnightsFury
09. Altocharizard55
10. Crys
11. Celebii151
12. Mew The Gato
13. DarkLucarioADV
14. HeroicRein
15. RealMrGame10

First off, the elephant in the room has finally been bumped up and away from where anyone honestly cares. The top three spots for too long have been held by people at too close a level to judge and by far enough of a gap off others that it isn't even worth a mention at this point, though granted that gap is definitely finally starting to close. As such, Jeri, Dave, and myself have been bumped to the honorary top spot of 0, especially given none of us battle as frequently as we realistically should.

The top spots are taken by Connor and following him, Snorby. Connor was the pretty obvious spot for the fourth member of the Elite Four for a reason, and is at the point where he he has earned to be on top of this list, as opposed to on top of an ovis aries. Snorby is a decent ways behind still, but definitely a solid second here, after all he was picked for the filler E4 spot for a reason. Emi has been towards the top of these lists for quite some time now, and that's exactly where she stays as she's claimed the open third slot. Meanwhile Miror and Machamp-X round the top 5 off, having solidly proven themselves and holding their new Gyms nicely.

Apollo starts off the next group, having recently returned and would probably be higher if not for displaying a small bit of rust. He's followed by our remaining Gym Leaders, Kamen and TKF, who I'm proud as all hell of at this point. Alto and Crys take the remaining spots of this group, both fairly close to Gyms of their own, both pretty much being held off due to lack of matches showing proficiency with their chosen types.

The back five lead with Celebii, who has been vying for a Gym for some time and is super close now, followed by Mew The Gato and DLADV who are perhaps a bit further away. The Rankings this go around are wrapped up by a couple of Gym Trainers who are honestly getting pretty close to being capable of moving on to their own Gyms, in my opinion, HeroicRein and RMG10.

Honorable mentions this go round go out to kingothestone, who is back with a vengeance and I can see trying to make a claim to this list if he sticks around, and Midgeorge, who sports something of a similar bio at the moment.


Comment, question, discuss, whatever. And as per usual feel free to share links to matches involving the above names that you think will be worth watching in the coming months.

Oh hey, one of these again. Too bad it won't show the bottomfeeders of the league, where naive me thinks I am

> after looking

14th place, as small as it may be, is a massive boost to my self-confidence and definitely brings light on the fact that I'm not as bad as I thought. As for getting close to being able to run a gym, don't I need to improve my WL massively first? Anyway, grats to all ranking in the top 15

Well, yes, but I've been a firm believer that w/l isn't a direct correlation to skill for a while now, so take that as you will.

Wooo second place solid shit.

As I recall you said they're being done differently this time around. What changed, besides the obvious fact that someone competent is at the helm?

I'm actually quite surprised I rank 3rd. Maybe I should do more ASB in this case.

This along with the ones Emi posted probably covers pretty much every match to watch that's currently ongoing. There should be a match between myself and MTG going up on Serebii in the near future that you could also keep an eye on, though.

I mean, I hired RMG and Extroph for a reason. Whenever Ex comes back, I can see him shooting up with RMG.

So by "holding" his new gym, do you mean, like, blocking the front gate and holding the door closed, or what?
