This was a bit of a weird one. Sumika went right for startles, using Hyper Beam at every opportunity; combined with an early startle from Snow, everyone got off on an odd foot. Yagyuu missed out on a great copy right as Yellow Submarine was getting lucky with a Sleep Talk on top of a crowd boost; Yagyuu couldn't make up the difference in the end, leaving the fish victorious.

This was a fun one; more startles that shook up the game. Sumika was still in Hyper Beam spam mode, but Amy Santiago and Fern played around this pretty well. Unfortunately for Amy, two very late startles took its score way down, allowing Rujay to clinch victory with a jackpot Fury Swipes.

Lots of high appeals and playing to the crowd. Griffith and NotInfernape both copied, but Griffith's combos were better-timed, earning it a full-on crowd boost. Aran's high starting score allowed it to tie by maxing its final appeal. Geek Squad was doing alright, but lost its shot for high points near the end when it saw Griffith about to succeed and got petty.

Ol' No Name tried to combo with rain, but the CM didn't matter until the eleventh hour, when Amy Santiago seized it in its thorny mitts and eked out victory after learning to play around Bronzor's startle-heavy strategy. Zigzagcool had an advantage against said startles due to its heavy usage of the Belly Drum->Rest combo, but fell behind when copying a startlefest round.

It wasn't looking great for Karen until they got a huge copy in right before the last round. The others didn't have the movesets to keep up. HonEdge of Fashion tried to capitalize on Swords Dance combos, but was hindered by a bad Slash prediction. Kokoro's low-heart startles occasionally shook things up, but mostly prevented "Evolve me if I win" from catching up with Karen.

So, uh... it's been a while, huh? Lots of startles, not a lot of combos, and a few suboptimal plays kept point totals low. Luca took advantage of position most of the time to eke out the win.

This was a fun one. No startles, so everyone was just focused on getting as many points as possible. Ricktor and Rho both combo'd aggressively, but Ricktor's favorable positioning allowed it to come out on top of that particular game. Roderick's use of combos allowed it to squeeze into second place.

Another fun one! Few people went for attribute, with Frostbite going out of their way to punish those that did. Ironically, the only full crowd bonus went to Frostbite at the very end, which was then immediately consumed by Valentzia for power.

Everyone played to the attribute and mode really well. Manectric used smart, compatible copies to keep its score steadily rising, with a meteoric uptick after it took advantage of swiftgallade46's finisher. Laviere's incompatible appeals left it juuust slightly behind. Harry gambled twice, making good on its Morning Sun bet but losing its Flame Wheel gambit near the end.

Gold and Evan played smart, taking advantage of the other two contestants by copying high appeals and then preventing the other two from copying high appeals of their own. Evan thought he would prevent Gold from taking the crowd boost and winning at the end, but mistook Smart as being incompatible with Cute, keeping the CM high enough for Gold to eke it out at the end.
