      Hugen can infinite battle just have all chances to recycle/harvest leppa berry always fail. Using an elaborate trick set up with entrainment durant it's easily possible to use gothorita and gothitelle to trick leppa onto a trapped opponent, then trick it onto your recycle mon, then protect spam the entire match.

        I know we do it for Sleep Clause, but I'd really prefer to alter as few game mechanics as possible.

      Just complementing what BoomBoomRevenge said, please see http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ou-80347983. Leppa+recycle ban did not exclude every single possibility of forcing an endless battle, although the ban did make triggering them more complicated, while screwing some legit stalling strategies that could be used with the combo.

      banning leppa berry+recycle is retarded. If I use funbro but without heal pulse, that won't make the battle endless and the opponent will eventually die from struggle damage. leppa+recycle on it's own is not close to being banworthy whatsoever

      I would like that you read the thread and gave me a valid opinion (one that isn't "we ban it because it's not competitive" or "your PS ranking is shit so you don't have reason trololo" like some mods in the thread have done) about why is Leppa+Recycle and not Leppa+Recycle+Trap banned, please.

        Yes, we were talking about it in the thread and I exposed one set that uses lepparecycle, but the thread got locked before we could further develop into the topic. Anyways wouldn't banning something because "it has no competitive uses anyways" imply that things like Bluk Berry should be banned as well?

      3. Hugendugen
        Hugendugen
        If Bluk Berry could be used to force an endless battle or do something else that isn't in the spirit of the game, then yes. Obviously I'm not saying that all items or moves that don't have a competitive use should be banned.
        Jan 22, 2014

        But it's not the Leppa + Recycle the thing that forces an endless battle, but trapping + Leppa or trapping + Recycle (besides from the very specific scenario that you listed above) .

      Hi, you should consider changing the endless battle clause to a more rational ban of recycle+leppa+trapping, this will prevent any indefinite stalling where the outcome is decided by who wants to give up first as any stalling player (who manages to set up an endless battle against one remaining pokemon) will always be in a position to win at a time of his/her choosing.

        I also think that this ban should be reconsidered. Trapping + (recycle or harvest) + (healing or truant/entrainment/protect) is the core issue that leads to a (relatively) reliable endless battle. While it's true that one could pull this off without trapping by just waiting for the last pokemon to be alive, this is not something that can be reliably done with the ensemble banned.

        I should think that the point of banning a set should be based on whether the set is inherently uncompetitive or broken. If a player manages to force an endless battle in a way that circumvent the specific ban, then that is less of a result of an uncompetitive set and more of a result of player misconduct, the latter of which is an issue to be resolved by moderation, rather than by moveset banning.

        Here is an example of such a ban: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ou-80347983. I think that the combination of the specific moveset clause and making infinite stall a bannable offense should resolve the issue, while not disallowing legitimate uses of recycle+leppa.

      would just like to inform you of another Endless battle exploit http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/pokebankoubeta-71366413 this one is caused by entraining truant onto a pokemon then switching to a shadow tag pokemon said shadow tag pokemon then uses a combination of torment/taunt/protect to not die AND when struggle happens to make the enemy pokemon not take recoil damage and ofc leppa/recycle to never run out of PP

      I'm new here, and I'm having technical trouble with my account. For some reason, I can't reply in threads or conversations; it wont let me type in the "reply box". Same thing for conversations: I can type in the "conversation title" box but not the actual message box. The only way I can communicate is through profile posts. I would appreciated it if you can help me out or direct me to someone who can help me. Thanks

      It's too bad nobody asked - the actual game automatically ends all battles after 1024 turns, because there's only so much room for data in the battle video.

      The game would then award the win to whoever had more Pokémon remaining.
      1. Hugendugen
        Hugendugen
        We'd actually considered it, not the turn limit, but the in game timer: http://pastebin.com/aUrnECAH

        I still don't think it's within the spirit of the game to use that as a win condition, so we decided to keep the clause regardless.

      Decided to throw this out there since I noticed it: despite the only viable way to do this being Munchlax, you can use Fling + Leppa Berry + Pickup to create an infinite game, since Pickup can find items you've flung, similar to the other Fling + Recycle infinite game method.
