i like that your new sponsor is displate ^^
No hate towards you, but there is a BUNCH of stolen artwork there, some of which the creators came forth to complain against. Doesn't seem ethical, even though the concept is pretty cool.
@Rodz They plant a tree for each sale, so the moral balance is restored
@Blep VerdiByrd Disagree. One good deed isn't going to erase something they keep doing wrong. Those are completly unrelated. But i don't wanna turn this response thread into a morality debate that has nothing to do with the video, so i ain't gonna judge if you or anyone else decides to buy one. I just think it's an awful thing.
would'nt arena trap work to
Wolfe accidentally climbing to the top of the Showdown ladder and causing his team to become popular and well-known is one of the funniest flexes of all time
I just want to break down how absurd this is and reiterate both how strong Wolfeys team building and confidence in it is.
Build a team with a uncommon strategy that becomes metagame warping as it leaps up the ladder, have everyone copy said team which then gets counter teams made for it, have the original team notified over time to deal with these counter plays, and then just enter the tourney with effectively the same original team anyway
MF pulled without hyperbole a Starcraft Brood War Bisu Revolution for the season
@Materialist tbf it helps that they didn't see how vital Scream Tail and Palafin were.
They basically said "So we can make the car faster by making it lighter, right? Well there's this huge piece of junk in the front, I think it's called... the engine? Yeah, get rid of it."
That’s the world champ difference 😂
@Materialist Yea the community not seeing *why* Wolfey used Scream Tail Palafin was the biggest dub. They didn't understand what made those choices important to his rise up the ladder.
@Materialist you can copy the strategy but you cant copy the world champ difference
(or the hyper specific specialized EVs he calculated to take care of every big threat in the meta which is ,ore towards the teambuilding you mentioned lol)
"Even if my opponents had experience against the team, it wasn't the same as having experience against me." is such a raw and terrifying line to hear from a world champion
Rawer than Tatsugiri sashimi
It's the world camp difference
Wolfey preping: "i don't want to risk the tourney on a coinflip"
Wolfey in the finals: "well good old coin, here we go again"
he actually didn’t know ashton’s EVs until after the game and thought 252atk arcanine always picked up the KO. ashton was running an unusually bulky gholdengo
@dark angel tbh bulky gholdengo always feels like a bad idea, it worked here but almost every other mon would ko it.
"Perish Trap is pretty widely considered the single hardest strategy to use in competitive Pokémon. it's so difficult in fact, that it has only ever won one official Pokémon tournament."
"Yep. By me."
Yeah a lot of subtle brags in here but this guy has earned it so it’s cool
Truly the World Champ Difference
*Insert Obama meme here*
You're a better man than me. I'd be so salty if everyone started copying my team LMAO.
Same I get so annoyed why when a good team is built everyone copies them because they can't use there own team they built.
ah really? I would honestly be really smug and proud that my team is being used everywhere XD. Everytime i'd fight it, ill tell myself: ha! thats MY team!
I’d feel great. My innovation influencing so many people? Dope shit
The editing on this is _absurdly_ high quality, it's one of the best I've ever seen. Being able to keep up with everything and the video not being fifteen hours long is incredible
Yea I’m taking notes lol, fantastic editing
“Even if my opponents had experience against the team, it wasn’t the same as having experience against me” - The real world champ difference
@Jakwq The world champ difference allows him to cheat
@WolfeyVGC I was the kid who after the last match of the day I asked you to sign my bulbasaur and you signed it on the belly (this was in Tennessee in February 2023 near the end of the month) I just wanted to say thank you, I wanted you to sign my bulbasaur because it's number 1 in the pokédex, and your my number 1😊
This is so wholesome!
@Deli Bird yeah it’s nice to see good things on the internet
Funny how you changed lots of stuff in your team to counter Torkoal thinking there were gonna be a lot, yet didn't have to play a single one all tournament.
The irony is Torkoal got reduce in play because people starting to pick up his team right before the event.
@Khoi Nguyen that’s how regionals often play out. You never know what your match-ups will bring meta or rogue.
8:42 This foreshadowing is so genius and I love it, showing a coin flip and saying you don't want it coming down to luck only for that to be the end of it all is amazing scripting well done Wolfe for another amazing video!
That felt kinda obvious
@Samael🥰😀🤭🤭hmm? It was obvious?🤭🥰😁
@Samael Was it really? I thought it was nice.
@try too After rewatching it I realize that it’s not so obvious after all. Maybe it’s something I’ve picked up from prev videos but when I watched the coinflips part for the first time I did think that was gonna come back
This guy is literally a world champion and in the videos he makes us feel like he is the underdog. Amazing work
"Even if my opponents had experience against the team, that didn't mean they had experience against me" is the most badass 'Final Boss - Protagonist' thing I've ever heard 👏
I mean if you spend hours with a team dedicated to scouting teams and practicing and getting pokemon in odd ways then yeah.
Imagine being a pokemon, training hard for the greatest battle of your life... only to find yourself trapped in this weird room you can't escape from as Hungrybox and his tall goth gf sing a song so off-key it kills you
What is this gem comment in this sea of comments? 😂
i dont think ive ever seen a funnier comment tbh, this is great
may i have the permission to use this analogy whenever i talk about this strat
“having experience against the team wasn’t the same as having experience against me” literally gave me chills. the best in the world, the greatest of all time, the world champ difference
Wolfey going up to number one in the ladder, giving everyone experience against his team, and still going on to win, is the DEFINITION of world champ difference.
Whoever put together the background music should get a medal. Not only SMTV and Gravity Rush music but Ace Attorney music when Wolfe says to bring out his ace... too good 😂
And Pizza Tower at 34:32
I heard danganronpa too somewhere
Persona 5 as well.
Wow. Having to face off against Ashton again with Perish Trap must have been chilling for both of you. It’s like a fated rematch. I love how even though I knew the outcome I was still at the edge of my seat. This is why i love your videos. Congratulations on the win!
Goat. Super deserved million subs soon and fantastic performance
real recognise real 🤝
The editor(?) who went through all the effort of replicating the matchups for our viewing experience is goated, even with Lycanroc having a cosmetic spooky balloon hat ):
Right? For some reason I thought all the matches were recorded. I have so much more respect for Wolfe’s memory of the matches and all the effort of replicating them.
Thats quality entertainment, thanks wolfey and his editor l.
@Bryan Fewell to be fair he did say the first round was 800 participants, so it makes sense not all of them were recorded
Lycanroc with spooky balloon hat? I don't see what you mean. :(
That explains the Thunder Shock on Rotom at 26:37
Wolfeys recents collabs the last year and change have seriously increased his charisma in his videos, he used to feel kinda monotone but you can feel his energy and expertise just radiating out of him now, his videos are also better edited overall it's great to see his growth and can't wait for him to reach the big 1 Milli! Great video like always Wolfey!
I find it hilarious that Wolfey basically said “yes I threw away one of my biggest advantages away on accident but I wasn’t worried since all the people know how to do is fight the copies and simply they ain’t me!”
I loved this tourney, especially when Wolfey said: "Maybe the real world champ difference was the friends we made along the way" and difference'd over his opponents. Truly the
This might be my favourite wideo you ever made. The turn by turn detail of each fight, the recreation of battles... It's amazing. I wish more people would do this, but it looks like a crazy amount of work. So worth it tho!! This was legit GREAT
Whoever edits these videos, hats off. Insane amount of work.
I've never played actual pvp pokemon but I appreciate the time spent explaining each turn of combat
i have to say, its so genuinely impressive to have not only played through these games once during a super stressful event, but to have remembered enough about them and put time and resources into recreating the teams and battles for the video
Oh man wolfey don't mess around with back pain, if it hurts you gotta stop and rest or it takes even longer to fix. Hope it's doing better now
Dang, this video was incredible. Everything from accidentally climbing to top of showdown to that insane ending. Time flew by so fast I didn't even realize the video was almost an hour long!
This videos are always amazing, the insight behind every play seriously never fails to stun me. There's always much to learn by these and are also very enjoyable in general. Thanks a lot wolfey, at this point you're carrying a quarter (probably even more) of the pokemon competitive scene by yourself
Holy crap. It’s always scary having to leave a match up to a coin flip. But having that same situation in ANY tournament match has to be HEART POUNDING!
It's also pretty funny that he didn't bring sing to avoid a coin flip scenario, but in the end it all came down to a coin flip.
I think I remember hearing that Wolfe wasn't aware of the damage roles and assumed it would always KO so in the moment, I imagine, it wouldn't have been that scary - only for that to be a heavy realization once made.
According to what he said in a video he put up shortly after the tournament, he didn't know that the Gholdengo was actually bulky until Ashton told him.
Can someone explain why it was 50% chance that Flare Blitz would KO Goldengo? I didn’t understand that part.
@PRJO3 Ii believe it was a damage roll, where half the damage rolls killed, half didn't.
This was such an incredible and comprehensive video, but one of my favorite parts has got to be the quick drawing at 4:52 of Wolfey's friends! Seeing Markus, the Aarons, and the rest of the squad in such cute fanart for their quick shoutout in the video is so sweet
I like how your videos are explained in details and very friendly to those non-competitive casuals like me. Got me interested in vgc! Congrats again!
That tournament was probably the most fun I’ve ever watched, and it was thanks to your team. GG Wolfey, now go and bring home the world title in Japan !!! We’re rooting for you.
Very cool to be there and witness the scale of the event in person. 10 rounds in one day was redonkulous especially since we started late lol
wolfey really said “sure, you can copy my team. but you cant copy *me”*
Oh yeah pokehex
this is what rappers have said about people copying flows or trends - something like "you can copy me but you can't be me" or "you can copy my style but you don't have your own to stand out" etc etc (probably has happened and keeps happening on other music genres and medias as well - but rappers bring this up in their songs and interviews constantly so its easier to find these types of comments even if you aren't diving deep in)
@Kummo (RRM) will the real Wolfey Glick please stand up?
Someone should make an edit of Wolfie with this phrase lmao
I love these long form analysis style videos. They're always so I formative and gripping. Huge W Wolfey, thanks for all the content!
Mad props for the effort it must be to remember and recreate these sets. Congrats Wolfey!
The effort you put into these videos is insane, keep up the good work!
the bit about everyone copying your team was hilarious! you’re such a protagonist, it’s amazing!
I didn't know the team had become so well-known before the tournament! That's a cool dynamic. Round 8 must've hurt, though, losing the mirror to a "copy".
only wolfey can just casually drop that he accidentally got to number one on the pokemon showdown ladder, and then just move on
"Whoops! I'm too OP! Now everyone knows about this team!"
Imagine being so far in the lab you don't even realize how far you got.
Bro so good the world spoiled his entire team while training
Damn this is so tough. Big respect to Wolfe very inspiring to just really make the team you want to work win despite the meta.
I’m so happy how much your videos have improved over the years, well done!
I really enjoy this style of video that breaks down a strategy/meta for a tournament (or set of battles) and then has you explain each decision during a battle.
Something hilarious and great about the way that Wolfe says some of the highest ego (in a good way) stuff like “just because they had experience against the team, they still don’t have experience against me” so earnestly and in a non-boastful way. Love it
This is a bit of a nostalgia for me, first time I ever watched a Wolfe video was the thing he did with Shady way back when and he had just won a regional with perish trap against Ashton, which incidentally is the first vgc match Ive ever watched. I kinda kept up with the man since, needlessly to say things went relatively well.
And a cool little detail, that team Wolf built with Shady originally had jigglypuff, but they had to remove for Politoed it since the team was so weak to Zard Y. It may have needed to go back a few thousand years, but Jigglypuff finally became the star of a Wolfe perish trap team.
That was the first time I saw Wolfe in a video too!
this is a beautiful articulate comment
so what is this the last one you're gonna watch?
Hell yes! Wolfey you changed my ways into loving Pokémon Doubles, and hearing Arcanine made your list made me SOOO happy! He is just the best boy. 🐕🔥🎮
Gotta say, I love the editing, story telling and incredible explanation here. Besides, I also love the background music choices! Keep it up and congratulations on 1 mil
I really love these videos. I'm interested in comp as a spectator and wanting to understand what's going on, so these step by step videos are excellent for boosting my understanding!
I actually spend an hour watching this video! What a epic journey to the top! 🎉
This was a great watch. I felt like I was able to follow every match even though it was so abridged!
I can't believe Karen from Gen 2 was right this whole time, real champs win with their favourites
It helps when your favorites are good
Real trainer lose with their favorite :)
My favourite is metapod with harden
What if my favorite pokemon is Landorus-Therian
Had a blast watching this live, congrats on the win!
Wolfey, I loved the storytelling, you did such an amazing job with this video!
Really loved this video. The detailed breakdown of team building and game-by-game strategy is awesome. Makes me want to start battling.
Your videos are so good Wolfe, I appreciate the good vibes that help me out!
This is extremely well edited. a lot of time and effort is put into your videos. I hope you reach your goals.
It's honestly insane how difficult this tournament was for Wolfe (despite the WCD)
- Prior to the tournament, he basically leaked his team, which ruined the major surprise/unfamiliarity factor his team had. (I think he also leaked his team's EV spreads and nature but idk how much info showdown provides on other people's teams)
- He had back pain. (Mental energy lost to enduring pain is bad for performance turn-based competitive game)
- He had to fight the teams he had lost to in swiss and the only player that was undefeated at that point in the single elim bracket
- He had to win two coin flips with Gholdengo damage rolls in the finals (I assume Ashton must've EV'd his Gholdengo as such given that Wolfe's team got a lot of attention prior to the event)
This tournament should have been a disaster for Wolfe given these circumstances and yet he still won it all.
You exaggerated with the evs and Ashton preping for wolf's team part.
1. If you accept open sheets you can get the moves item and tera, like in tournament so getting the ev spreads is impossible.
2. BRO WDYM, there's no shot Ashton prepped gholdengo specifically for wolfes team, prob directly towards arxanine but that's also a stretch since its a 50% coin flip so unless we get into a calc and compare every mon we won't know what he was prepping for.
Watching Emilio struggle was the best part
Congradutions Wolfe! Your tournaments and content are always incredicle to watch.
Wolfey seems to always be at the top of his game when he’s using dedicated perish trap teams. It’s a joy to watch
I remember seeing the finals live the second I heard you were playing. Absolutely insane match, with a just as amazing video to match.
Wolfey I love your content. It always makes my day watching your videos. Keep up the great work- the information you share and the tactics you use are amazing 👌🏼
I ran into this team so many times on the ladder and I think only lost to it once. And i dont say that to insinuate i'm awesome, but to say how hard this team is to pilot really well (let alone in an open teamsheet environment!). This was one of my favorite tourney runs to watch due to the sheer amount of skill in pulling it off. Well done Wolfey
some of these plays (from him and his opponents) especially in the final bracket are mind-bending- something underrated about VGC Pokémon that really hit me this video is the life or death weight of every single button you click
@Materialist The entire thing turns into a "you know that he knows that you know that he knows that you know..."
@Londronable but they don't know we know they know we know!
Back in 2012 I would also use Perish Song playing casually with friends because I just loved the strategic potential of the move. So glad to see a player take this move to the forefront of competitive play. Just amazing!
I'm very impressed by your teambuilding skill! Imagine if you took everyone by surprise with that one, would have been a clean sweep!
I didn’t know ab your history with perish trap and how it’s your favorites, makes me respect the strat from you significantly! Deserved wins and mad respect gained in my book whenever you win with your favorites, Gothitelle has become one of my fav Mons bc of you!
This video was engaging all the way through! Great job and congrats Wolfey.
even just watching that last battle was TENSE!!!
Amazing video it was so worth the wait! I loved watching you play live
Truly one of the world champ differences of all time.
@Jakwq Are you ever going to elaborate or are you just gonna say he cheats on every comment
@J Gary I think its just people whining about pkhex or something, when building a full team normally would realistically take months and is not at all reasonable lol
Probably a heat of the moment thing but Ashton couldn’t use Fake Out that last game because you had Extreme Speed on Arcanine to pick Tatsugiri off.
@Jakwq everyone does who cares
@Jakwq that’s an opinion. However, I have a question: who asked? Who gave you permission to talk? Nobody. In fact, I went through the entire Ultra Space mini game and didn’t find a single person who asked
I watched this whole video, having not played the Pokemon video game in years, just because this was so well put together. Great job Wolfe, congratulations!
This was such a ride, good job Wolfe and editor
These videos are so well done it’s insane
This team was awesome and your videos keep getting better!
I love seeing the Glaring contrast of Competitive singles and competitive doubles. the difference is staggering and amazing lol.
The final matchup being the same as the first time you won with this team was iconic, what a great video Wolfe, you definitely deserved this win 🙌
I adore your videos so much. They honestly make my day. THANK YOU!
This was a fun watch! I used to team build and damage calculate back when Megas were a thing after that I stopped playing competitively. This makes me want to start again!
The drama of this video, even already knowing the overall outcome. It kept me hooked. Well done Wolfe
I know how you won I watched it and it looked hard, like that was one hell of a battle, however I'm still going to watch this so u can hear what was going on in your head at the time. Gratz on the win sir and hope to see you in more big games like it
Not sure why, but the editing and tone of this video feels much better than the first gen9 tournament video. Keep up the great content man, can't wait to see more videos on your tournament games
Huge congrats Wolfey! Truly a WCD moment.
Winning the finals against Ashton a second time with the same strategy from 8 years ago is such an anime moment. I am now convinced that Wolfe is secretly an anime protagonist.
i'd love to see you participate in the world championships wolfey! i know you can win it
That was INCREDIBLE ... he''s done it again
Congratz on the win Wolfe and great wideo ^^
The production value is skyrocketing in your content, and your music choices are phenomenal. Great video!
Thank you so much for sharing this! I love seeing the brakedown of all the pokes
The VGC tournaments this year have been really exciting. I started watching competitive during gen 8 so it's nice to finally see a full season of events
Incredible, so glad you made this video!
That was awesome to watch. Good win Wolfe!
Amazing video! I would have loved an extra 30 seconds on how the win felt.
Congrats Wolfe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Such an entertaining video for such a cool moment!
Almost to 1 mil! Keep up the grind. You are amazing and never forget that
Congratulations on this Wolfey, this is definitely one of biggest video game achievements ever and you absolutely deserve it.
@Jakwq ????? How?
Biggest Pokemon Regionals Champ DIFF
@Jakwq luck is a skill
@Jakwq He just has the World Champ Difference, accept it
lol is this about the genning thing again? it’s an open secret, most comp players did it back in Gen
Bro you've came a long way I'm just glad I'm here too see it I love you wold ❤
Just so well done, you are the champ _and_ the professor
Against the same opponent in the finals?!?! What are the odds! GG WP, congrats on the amazing journey to seize this victory. Hope your back's doing alright now.
Wolfe, I love you so much man. Your creativity and humble yet hard won achievements and even failures never cease to impress, entertain, and teach me. I hope you read this because I'd like you to know you're not just a content creator to me, but honestly a benchmark of a well rounded person in my mind. That probably sounds exaggerated since I don't actually know you but I think I can pick up what you put down enough to say I look up to you and aspire to be like you in a number of ways, regardless of the fact that our medium for connecting is a game largely intended for kids. I look forward to seeing more of you and your genius brother. Peace and love.
I loved the part where Wolfey said “It’s World Champ Difference Time” and proceeded to World Champ Difference all over his opponents
