However, smart little Lim had correctly predicted this move and hence, instead of wasting the Pokèmon’s energy, she focused her Tyranitar’s attacks on her opponent’s other Pokèmon. This lead to the easy knocking it out of the other Pokèmon. She then’, ultimately finished Miranda-Radbord’s Rhyperior on the subsequent round, and sealed her victory.
We Congratulate Simone Lim on her surprising victory. The match has shown just how open and accessible esports can be, and in this process, Simone Lim has got undoubtedly, a whole lot of new fans.
