Teams from the VGC ’15 Japanese National Championships
Information was compiled with help from Daniel Pol (Chiron), Conan Thompson (conan) and Barudoru’s blog post found here. Twitter names added if applicable
A note in regards to how tiebreakers work in this format, Federica was able to advance from their pool (which consisted of another player with a 2-1 record, slime). Even though slime was able to defeat Federica during pools, Federica’s number of pokemon remaining in prior battles consisted of 3-0 and 2-0 were higher then slime’s 2-0 in both battles.
The following players have an invitation to Day Two of the Pokemon World Championships in Boston, Massachusetts.

> japanese nats
> only 1 “japan sand”
what is this
also garde being really popular in japan
Also confirmed with rem and masa that rem’s metagross was non-mega and Masa’s Kangaskhan was King’s Rock with Fling (presumably to help him set up with his Geomancy Smeargle)
Links to blogs for corresponding teams
((Will amend post as more teams are posted ))
Ryosuke Kosuge , Jumpei Yamamoto and Yosuge Isagi are considered to be one of the best japanese players in their division, so why aren’t they here? Didn’t they participate at all?
The qualifying tournament was a Wifi tournament and it is notoriously hard to make it through
As for Ryosuke, he is busy with his studies, assuming Yosuke didn’t qualify. Junpei? he hasn’t been active since 2012
It just goes to show how diverse their meta is compared to ours. Some of the teams wouldn’t function as well in bo3, but they are still interesting nevertheless.
The tournament defenitely seems tough, especially given that it’s BO1 nature makes gimmicks run freely.
I really wished Ryosuke could qualify since he couldn’t make it last year despite having a great team.
Ennui_noon’s Japan Cup blog post has a section at the bottom for his Garchomp -> Hydreigon ammendment. http://d.hatena.ne.jp/ennui_noon/20150614/1434262412
How could I forget :>
Usage stats – I’m doing these at work so please forgive any errors.
Teams from this are interesting, as it feels like they range from teams that players are known for, and have used for a while to teams with the most strange and wacky things. While there’s a number of teams that may look “boring” or “standard” in the mix, I’m pretty sure all of them have some hidden tricks up their sleeves within their finer details.
Also… I know that he changed his Twitter name for a short while to “Federica”, then to “Japan Sand”… but are we really still keeping that typo in Frederica’s handle name?
No one else going to comment on those rad ‘vs’ photos?
Also M-Gard and Amoonguss combo for days.
Conan informed me he still goes by Federica?
