Mmm... No, there isn't!
Wow, it's a great online competition! When they did the poll, I voted for this format, so I'm happy they have choosen that :D now the players will have to review all their strategies! asd

P.S.: But they called it with too different names o_O Alternation Battle for Japan, Zuffa delle Riserve (Fight of the Reserves) for Italy, Stunde der Außenseiter (Moment of Outsiders) and here Scrappy Skirmish xD Choose one and translate it for all languages!

I voted for the Invese Double Battles... :coffee: since it's interesting and confusing (who can remember that fire is super-effective against water? XDD)

Usually they change the name for every country (like the moves of the Pokémon) to something that fit :yesyes:
(and the italian ones are always the ugliest ones :yeahyeah: I stopped playing Pokémon in italian because of that...)
