      Question about Curse of Blades. It's been rolled out of 7 for the target in all instances I've seen despite there being 8 active raiders. This lead me to believe it couldn't go onto Registeel's current target but this round Gallade was given it. Wondered if you could clear this up for me, especially if Gallade should not be a legal target for it. Since it definitely effects our ongoing plan.

        You are correct, my bad. Fixed it.

      So Regirock is going to Petrify someone action 1 next round, this is for certain. I would like Tomohawk to sub to Dispell whomever this is on action 2. Since it has Prankster this will increase the priority over its normal move, but it will know who to Dispell at the end of action 1. Is there a particular way I should word this sub to make it legal? Or do I need to Dispell with a non prankster user?
      1. zarator
        zarator
        1) It is NOT certain. Petrify's action timer is a bit more random than you may think; 2) At the moment, such a sub would be illegal - although I promise I'll try to review sub rules to account for future actions (as in, "if something happens A1 please do X on A2")

        so what you're saying is that due to Prankster it is impossible for Tomohawk to have a legal sub of "IF you ally is under a magic effect THEN Dispell (that ally)"?

      I just saw my name being said wrt to a maxdog (or maxfish or dogim or fishim or maximus dogimus... I like the latter) raid. I am willing to do it if you allow me to. The only thing I should mention is that I never bothered to fight any of the dogs (I don't know if I should to be able to ref them) and that isn't on my to-do list for the forseeable future.

      And depending on your available time, Birkal and YAS have a raid waiting for something to be done with it. I know CPNM gets really boring after a while, but...

        Seemingly so, sorry^^ I'll likely do a new ref round in the future tho, so stay tuned

      how

        He is one of the generals of Darkrai's army. It has been hinted a few times in the Hour of Twilight OP and in a couple other raids that Darkrai is overrunning Sinnoh with an army of his own

        But a Garchomp and Dragon-types in a region with a ton of native Ice-types who would likely react to it? (i.e. "why couldn't Darkrai have sent a general that isn't 4x weak to Ice or something")

        It's assumed that these mons are above and beyond the wild mons in the area, whose stats are akin to what you'd expect from a normal mon (i.e. they'd be easily slaughtered^^). Also Garchomp has way more minions than the ones showed.

      I'm sure I probably already know the answer, but any chance you want to pretend I didn't mess up battery targeting to save us all a round or two in CPHM?

        If you know, why are you answering?^^ Besides, that's much less of a mistake you did, compared with your "timing" of Bloodlust, but I'm sure you can still make it (as of right now at least, I'm not saying you can't lose)

      Whilst I dodge whatever sharp objects you're about to throw at me, you should know that TLRs where it's not stated (Far too many - Revamps Soon™) have a Support Combo Timer of 2, and a Damaging Combo timer of 3. Since we're in R2, damaging combos won't work - they only work from R3. This makes Jynx's second sub illegal. Given it's not really clearly written down in any OPs, I'm inclined to let you edit your orders :P

      Yo, in your TLR, Frosty didn't mark that Kingdra's Dragon Scale gives her effective stats of 4/3/5/3/98. Would that change your orders?

      What would go wrong if Garchomp could use Dig? Why would it always lose to Raichu?
