Being a PvP coach will be my contribution to the rising #battlers and #girlsthatpvp. I took my talents to Twitter, and that was when PvP Tips were born. PvP Tips – Part 4:
It is okay that the match/round/tournament did not go as planned. The best thing to do is learn from it, congratulate your opp, wish them luck, and keep doing your best. Most importantly, have fun.
Learn After Matches
When you finish a match, win or lose, ask your opp what their thoughts were during. What could they have done; what they think you could have done; learn how they did that; teach them some skills.
Calming the Nerves
Everyone gets nervous before a big tourney, even before every match. Take a deep breath, count to 3, and listen to your music of choice to get you hyped instead of nervous. You got this.
Like Thanos, lag is inevitable. Play it out until the very end. Be PATIENT, CALM, & COLLECTED. Discuss with your opp about a rematch. Thank your opp for being patient and move on to the next match.
Understand when to shield and when to not. In this sim, Nidoqueen will win in 1-1, lose the 1-2 & 2-2 shields. Best to save the 2nd shield and use a Charge Move to KO Donphan or burn their 2nd shield.
IVs in @pvpoke
Set your Pokémon IVs when simulating and studying to understand how your own Pokémon stack up against the meta. Know which matches flip in your favor and when they don’t.
Losing the Lead
Thanks @gingerlykimber1 for the idea!
