hmm, yea - you may have been forced to outrage if Infernape lost the speed tie. Outrage is probably the only chance Salamence is getting past Celebi, too. Keeping Ninetales on Gyarados was not a good move, even if I didn't have SE.
It was amazing getting to know you as a person, Expert Physics! I definitely enjoyed talking with you. I'm heeding your advice so I may not be on irc that often anymore. If I ever go on, I'll remember to PM you :d
