    Hello everyone!

    Anyone who pays much attention to the tournaments forum will know that I've been spamming the crap out of it, hoping to acquire some cool replays. However I decided to expand my search outward, and this is where you come in.

    I'm asking for anyone who saves logs to please share any good replays they have, so that we can make them into amazing youtube videos. If you save your logs, then you'll probably be saving poreplays as well and that is what I am after. To share a poreplay simply upload it to some cloud storage or file hosting service or some such (Dropbox, Google Drive, and Mediafire are examples of cloud services, I haven't got too much experience with other file hosting sites). Once it's uploaded, grab a link and send it to me!

    What kinds of battles are we after? Well there are a few things we're looking for:
    • Close- No-one wants to watch a one sided 6-0 sweep. It's boring. On the other hand, nail-biters that come down to the final turn make for excellent watching. This is by far the most important thing we're looking for.
    • Right length- 10 turns battles generally aren't interesting, and nor are 100 turn stallfests exciting either. Ideally we're looking for battles somewhere in the order of 20-40 turns, but this isn't a strict requirement, so if you've got longer/shorter battles that are still good, I'm more than happy to check them out.
    • Unique- Again, this isn't a strict requirement, but it is desirable. Everyone gets sick of the ladder eventually if they're seeing the same old generic team over and over again. So battles that showcase unique or underrated sets are strongly encouraged.
    • Popular metagame- We'd really love to see some current gen battles, particularly for OU. Again, not a strict requirement, just something that'd be cool to see
    • Not too much hax- A couple turns of hax can make for an interesting twist. Sequences where a player is fully paralysed for 4 consecutive turns do not.
    TL;DR: They only strict requirement is that the battles are close and entertaining. If they fit the bill send them to me, and other criteria is just icing on the cake.

    A few other things:

    Firstly, the channel isn't yet up and running unfortunately, and for the time being is no good to share. Rest assured though, that when it bursts into life (hopefully soon) I'll come sprinting to you all to let you know.

    Secondly, I'd love to hear about what kinds of things you'd like to see from the channel. Battles are obvious, and we're also recording some tutorial videos to help newer users out. However there are many more options for us to consider and I'd like to hear what you'd want to see.

    So please share your replays, and stay tuned because big things are happening!

    So the games don't have to have taken place in a PO tournament?

    Ortheore will forever be remembered as the one who saved PO from certain doom.

    Anyway, I am happy I saved so many logs but this is probably my favourite one: Midnight Falls vs [One☆Piece]Chøpper at 19h46.poreplay?dl=0

    It was a Monotype match where I was being crushed completely and it got down to about 5-2 (I think) then I completely swept with MegaGross (Sad MegaGross ban :(.... )

    Am I correct in thinking there is no way to save replays on android? (Dammit I wish I could use a PC) Good luck with the YouTube channel hopefully it will revitalize PO

    If you on Windows go to:
    Documents >> Pokemon Online >> Logs >> Battle Replay

    Then upload the replay file to a media host site like Dropbox and share the link to it here.

    I have an idea for the Youtube channel.
    How about we move Pokemon Analysis there? I know it's a stretch but it's be cool to see detailed analysis of some popular pokemon on the channel as someone talking would allow for a deeper analysis than a paragraph or so.

    Funny you should mention that, since we sort of accidentally came up with a similar idea and I think it's a good one. We can look at different pokemon, or we can discuss things like how different sets work, what makes a good hazard setter, stuff that is more educational and/or discussion-provoking than purely entertainment. For instance one of the videos we're planning on uploading when we go public demonstrates a SubDD sweep and how such a set functions.

    So yeah, it's a good idea Swanna and one that I think we'll follow through on in future =]

    I also thought of throwing Pokemon analyses on my YT channel, so if you guys just want me to do a few for the PO channel that might get them a few more hits :P

    Colud just do Smogon-esque pokemon analyses, except in video form rather than text. Ill try and make an example if I can find the time.

    EDIT: Scrap that idea, ill base it off of League of Legends' Champion Spotlight series. Should have one ready by the end of this week if not sooner. It will be on UU (Mega) Sharpedo. UU Cloyster will likely follow if Sharky works out.

    Eh rt. Analyses could obviously work. Using Replays from PO along with with narration and some editing will prove extremely nice tbh.

    Not sure what you mean but here's my answer:
    - if you have the battle replay saved on your pc, go to the PO server then File->Open Replay and chose the replay you'ld like to watch.
    - if you're talking about the fact it's bugged, there's nothing to do about it at the moment, and I don't even know how it will be fixed.

    Hope I somehow answered your question

    wp me, not looking where it belonged. sigh.

    Anyway, finished MOST of the Pokemon Spotlight (the parts where I tell you how to build your pokemon), just need some game footage to commentate on to show HOW to use it. Time to go look through those replays...

    I'd be more than happy to help with that.
    Also implement a side note saying 'There may always be hax and it doesn't necessarily invalidates a player's skill level.'
    Things like Sub as you mention does multiple stuff. Apart from allowing Focus punch it also helps break stall to a great extent by blocking status and always reduces room for prediction. It would be good to showcase something like this and will go a long way towards breeding a non idiot generation.

    Heres what I was thinking for the videos. Im up for making more, but you might want to find someone with a cooler voice than mine. I can still edit if needed, tho my editing is bad on this one. Premiere wasn't cooperating :(

    Guys are you'll really serious about this? Coz we can very form a group or something and discuss it out on Skype or WhatsApp.
    There will definitely be more people that'd help us on this. I can recall a few over the top of my head.

    We are definitely serious about this. You know because I pm'd you, but I just want to be clear that this project is getting off the ground. We haven't revealed anything yet, but you can expect the channel to spring to life very soon.

    Editing is something that can be done easy in that case. I should be able to help out with that and Ddrox mentions it too. I'm not sure if people appreciate an Indian accent though, lol so I'll probably skip the narrating. A narrator is what's pending in that case if Ortheore isn't doing it himself?

    See, I didn't want to bother saying this until later, but I might as well say this now. I'm one of the editors for the PO YouTube channel, and Ortheore is a narrator. @inigomontoya, I can give you some help with editing. I suppose Ortheore could lend advice/feedback on narrating, but if I offered something up right now, I would say try adding background music. A little music goes a long way, and fills in silent moments. Anyone else willing to help, I think Ortheore will PM you, or something else will be decided. Also, sharing battle replays would be nice, and I swore this thread was based on submitting battles, but whatever.

    Like I said, there are waaaay better narrators than me, so Orethore can narrate, I could narrate, Haze could, Fiery could. Heck, we could rotate or each do one part of the video idek. We have a ton of people willing to work on this, which will work out really well. for analyses and stuff we could use a writer, because one of the reasons for my narration pauses was the lack of a script (RIP).

    @Xenolize I did consider adding background music, and in hindsight it looks like I should have. Oh well. But yea, we should start talking over PM or Skype and leave this thread for battles.

    Hey everyone, it would be super cool if you all could send us exciting battles!

    Also another idea we've had is to do a team feature type thing, where we take a team onto the ladder and play through a match or two to demonstrate how the team works and all that. So if you've got any good teams that you'd like to share, feel free to send them our way =]

    I know, I'm not that retarded. But maybe he could use the logs to reenact the battle or something.

    I thought about re-enacting a PS replay, but then there's damage roll and hax like random crits/paralysis/misses. Unless PS replays can be converted to PO replays. or a really well designed Pokemon Online PS skin is made, PS replays aren't preferable.

    Thanks, but I'm not the narrator xD I said this in a previous post, I'm only one of the editors. @Ortheore and @TGMD are the narrators in the videos for the channel. There are more editors/narrators.

    Does anyone want to narrate battles for the youtube channel? (Or the channel is just gonna become inactive due to lack of narrations)

    I have a really funny Hackmons Challenge Cup game where a Sunflora swept. Probably not type of material you're looking for, but here's the log and I have the replay.
