      Jesus fuck. If you had any hope or expectation for that round to be reffed soon-ish (like "hey, maybe he refs it while on the toilet" or smthg), prepare yourself to be disappointed

        I will say that Metronome is annoying but kinda smart ._.

        It's not that difficult. Just SR Damage, two body slams, a safeguard, and some legal Metronomes. I believe that Texas said the aim was to piss the ref off.

      fifth in a row! I really should find a way to ask these on IRC.

      Confirming: If the Base Energy Cost is exactly the remaining energy the pokemon has, the combo can be pulled off, right? That is my interpretation on the matter, but since Texas argued against it on a convo I wanna confirm it.
      1. Dogfish44

        Handbook quote!

        "One other attribute a combo has is base energy cost. This is the minimum amount of energy the Pokemon needs to execute the combo. If it has less, the combo fails and the Pokemon faints from exhaustion."

        To me, this reads "Total EN must equal at least the Base Energy Cost". So if you have 12 EN, and a combo has a Base Energy Cost of 12 EN, then you would be able to use the combo.

      I am sorry for taking so long with the raid. Life is coming like a wrecking ball on my free time. Doing taxes doesn't help either. I intend to get it done by sunday at most (which is when I will have guaranteed free time). And after that things should progress more easily. I hope.

      Can I keep using that profile making thread for TLRs? With the same prizes and rules and what-not. There are some profiles I would like to do for Kyurem while I bother to work flavor and minor technicalities. And for future TLRs also, so I don't have to nag at you every 2 months.

        Sure, same rules as always, don't whip the slave labour too much~

      What happens if Rock Smash is comboed with a move that is both a "Rock" move and decreases Defense (Like Rock Smash itself)? NDA give different boosts in each situation, so I dunno what happens if both situations are present. I would say both things apply, but since I am an interested party, I should probably ask someone else before hand. AKA you
      1. Dogfish44
        Dogfish44
        Well that's really weird. At a glance, it appears as if Rock Smash + Rock Smash would go to 27 BAP? (4*2.25)*1.5*2 and all. The Defense stuff doesn't matter (Since it'd be 100% regardless), but yeah.

        I'm going to go abuse the US's lax gun laws vs Deck now -_-'

      Unrelated note: Team tournament dos is up, you want to team up? I'd do triples or maybe singles. (Track record is not stellar on the latter)
      1. Dogfish44
        Dogfish44
        Sure - if you want to grab Triples? I can take Doubles, given my team is suited, so yeah.

        Tentatively we've got YAS on singles - I'm going to make the quasi-confirm post in the tourney thread.

      So uh, looks like boss 2 is revealed now. Does his type change our plans at all. (Probably not but eh)
      1. Dogfish44
        Dogfish44
        Biggest thing it does is re-open looking at Dragalge on your team (Even a slow Bubble Shield might be useful - as would the 2x SE hits) and Hydreigon might come back into play . It also means your Syclant needs Natural Gift to go with it's Pumkin Berry - Gygax Holy Blade and Natural gift are 36 and 38 damage each. Mega Altaria still seems to be a perfectly competent tank, and we have others who can temporarily taake over.

      Steelix is at -1spe. I forgot to put it and I /think/ it matters a little in your battle. Lemme know if/when I can ref.
      1. Dogfish44
        Dogfish44
        Should be good to go. Means that Steelix does end up being KOed,, but not without taking Cradily out in the process.

      I should seen this before break time finished -_-. Oh well, by the looks of it leet won't do much better than zt.

      anyway, question: If a sub calls for Skill Swap (get X for your A and Y for B) and my opponent doesn't have Y, the entire sub is illegal, right? Since it is in am important match I thought I would ask for confirmation.
      1. Dogfish44
        Dogfish44
        Yah, for Leet that play was notably off - and if he hadn't got the 20%, then... =\

        And that's a good one. Follow similar rulings on Imprison imo? Which I reckon means illegal?
        Feb 25, 2016

      Just to confirm it once more. Leethoof passed DQ for the third time like an hour ago. Do I pull the plug?

      please :>?
      1. Dogfish44
        Dogfish44
        Pull it.
        Feb 22, 2016

      Frosty
      how patient should we be with leethoof as far as rock qualifiers go?

      I mean, my personal stance is "3 strikes and he is out" and he already passed DQ twice. But since you are the examiner I will leave the decision to you.
      1. Dogfish44
        Dogfish44
        Call DQ on the third. He's been active on IRC, and he has actively looked at the match (And asked me to change my sendout. Twice.)

      Sorry about the approval skip. It's weird because I distinctly remember checking Sableye on veekun but I must have forgot to put it in the post

        And a random Q: If you got a penny for every time someone forgot two-abilities in your gym, and I got a penny every time someone forgot Krill's Shell Armour, which of us would be richer?

      to be sure: can dig (suspend) be used under taunt? is it a damaging move? I mean, I've interpreted that way more than once, since it is an attack that is merely delayed, but will happen. Also, NDA qualifies as physical and doesn't make an exception for suspension. But since it is my battle involved, I'd guess a second opinion would do good.

        I think you can use (suspend)? Like, afaik it works in game, so yeah.

      Help my memory pls. On ASB do we use the old "Can't use rest if at full hp" mechanic from ingame? Even though the healing occurs only later in the action?
      Personally I think yes (a mon can't rest if not tired), but I want confirmation.
      1. Dogfish44
        Dogfish44
        I don't think we say anything either way, so I'd say follow in-game?

      Can we update the Hall Pokemon with regards to the new signature items? Stuff like Yanmega @ Rare Candy aren't the most useful things.

      Could you gimme some input? Can't enter IRC now. Consider this sub: "If Gardevoir will be a Fire type when you act, replace your respective action with Earthquake ~ Dig ~ Earthquake". Should I interpret it as "THEN Earthquake on the first instance, Dig on the second etc" or as "THEN initiate action string Earthquake - Dig etc"?
      1. Dogfish44
        Dogfish44
        To me, that's saying to initiate an action string. I'd need to see 'instance' to interpret it as first instance / 2nd instance / etc.
