    Narration is pretty choppy, but it is OK overall, I suppose. Not a fan of the narration, as I said, which is a major flaw and factored into my giving it a 3/10.

    Although I was, admittedly, critical, I just don't accept the choppiness as it ruins any flow or momentum of the narration. Personally, I weigh it higher when rating a video - to justify my low ranking

    Such a deep analysis
    7/10

    What Finch said was right, the narration was a bit choppy

    The noise in the background was annoying as Laurel said, as well as the choppy narration at the start of the match. In my opinion, teams should have been introduced, unless this was on purpose to interest the viewer throughout the video. The first couple of turns also, when Slowbro fainted to a Megahorn, could have been because Kyrk may have been running 8 Speed EVs, which I see on Rhyperior. Apart from that, it was an alright-ish battle, but not one I loved loads. I'll give this a 4/10. Sorry guys.

    I gave a 5, battle was alright imo, and the narration provided some decent insight. On the other hand, the narration was disjointed and also really flat, made it very difficult to enjoy watching

    I thought the narration provided excellent insight into the battle. The mic quality was pretty terrible and detracted from the experience, and it seemed at times the narrator was waiting for the replay to catch up with where he was in his script. I also thought the narrator's tone could have been far more conversational rather than really coming off as strictly reading a script.

    Editing was fine.

    Quality video, could be improved.

    Though you do cover the match very well in terms of what's going down, you could use some more enthusiasm. The total atmosphere is drier than the sand in the Sahara. Add some humor in there too, laugh, sigh, show some emotion, show them that you're a human being that isn't just reading off of a script that was written at 5:13 in the morning while trying to multitask and finish your two-week overdue book report.

    This is my first time rating a narration, btw, but I did take some public speaking classes though it isn't much "experience" if you could call it that.

    Also where did you get the artwork of the party pokemon?

    Did feel a bit unnatural and script read, however it was a good battle, nice voice (no homo) and detailed well, next time introduce teams and blank out pokemon as they are ko'd :]
