With all of these holes, this is starting to become a pretty weird warstory no? After the introductions are done with, the battle begins! I was kind of nervous going into this one as well because I noticed that she beat her opponent pretty quickly in the last round. She leads with Sneasel and Typhlosion while I start with my usual lead of Zapdos and Garchomp. Sneasel uses Fake Out on Garchomp for the flinch while Typhlosion uses a scorching Eruption to do quite a bit of damage to both Garchomp and Zapdos. Zapdos uses Discharge which luckily paralyzes her Typhlosion (guess I don't have to Thunder Wave next turn). She switches out her Typhlosion the next turn and this is where the details of the match become blurry again. I eventually get the win and get into the top 16. They take my game away for hack checking and I wander off somewhere.
I know you said your memory is bad from lack of sleep and I don't blame you, but...
I didn't hit garchomp with fake out, I hit it with ice shard, but you used protect, which was my fatal mistake (though I think I mentioned it to you when the battle ended)
When you seemed freaked out to see sneasel, I figured you thought garchomp would be gone in one hit and would probably use protect. But I knew it wasn't going to die cause the only attacking moves I had on sneasel were ice shard and fake out (with eruption, ice shard will always KO garchomp, but not by itself)
Then I started to get worried that you'd eq and not protect.. I overthought it and at the last minute decided to go straight for garchomp with ice shard instead, knowing that it could ohko typhlosion if I didn't get rid of it right away.. and you used protect and effed that up for me =/
Then any chance I might have had at making any sort of comeback was gone when typhlosion got paralyzed. (So I don't really remember the rest, but all I know is that it was definitely over for me after the first turn, so I guess the rest doesn't matter anyway >_>)
edit: my other poke was metagross
