aaaargh damn it!!!! I finally lost!!! And in such a stupid way, too!!!
Battle Tower Doubles Record: 265
Well, I got second overall on smogon, which is fine with me since I know I can never beat TRE. Unfortunately, I didn't get to 300... Whatever, I still FAR exceeded my initial expectations for this team. In the end, I lost to a bunch of bullcrap due to some extremely bad decisions on my part. Here's the battle:
PKMN Ranger Elise sent out Armaldo and Skuntank!
Morgoth sent out Ludicolo and Kingdra!
Armaldo and Skuntank... I never thought that skuntank would run many speed ev's so I expected kingdra to outpace it, set up rain, and then have ludicolo surf on turn 1. Unfortunately, I was being stupid and impatient, and if I had used fake out on skuntank I would have won.
Skuntank used Poison Jab! Ludicolo fainted!
Kingdra used Rain Dance!
Armaldo used X-Scizzor! (doing ~60%)
Well, Skuntank went first (if I had actually checked I would have seen that 3 out of 4 Skuntank run max speed -_-), thus screwing me over. However, I've come back from countless 3-4 starts. If I had faked out, however, then Skuntank would not have been able to attack and so Kingdra would have still been at full health.
Morgoth sent out Kabutops!
Kabutops used Protect!
Kingdra used Surf!
Kabutops protected itself!
Now, I'm looking pretty good. I'm up 3-2, which is usually what happens after starting out 3-4. Then...
PKMN Ranger Elise sent out Mismagius and Ludicolo!
Kabutops used Waterfall!
Kabutops is hurt from its recoil. (Life Orb)
Mismagius hang on! (focus sash damn it)
Kingdra used Dragon Pulse! (doing ~35% to Ludicolo)
Mismagius used Thunderbolt!
Ludicolo used Giga Drain!
This was the second one of my bad decisions. Had I used surf or something with kingdra to ensure the KO on mismagius, I would have won. Instead, I assumed that kabutops would OHKO, not knowing that the stupid little ***** of a ghost had a sash. Once again, laziness attributed to my loss, since I was multitasking and had I been checking the lists on the computer I would have prepared for the sash. Also, this is kingdra being damaged earlier came back to haunt me, as it was weak enough to die to giga drain and restore ludicolo to about 80% and then gain another 6.25% from rain dish.
Morgoth sent out Latios!
Latios used Dragon Pulse!
Ludicolo used Ice Beam! (doing ~60%)
At this point, I had to take out mismagius and surf would do nothing to ludicolo, thunder was weaker than dragon pulse, and draco meteor would be bad, weakening me. Once I saw that it had ice beam, I knew I had lost.
Latios used Dragon Pulse! (leaving Ludicolo with ~15%)
Ludicolo used Ice Beam!
And, that's the end of it. As you can all see I definitely should have won, not losing to hax and instead my own misplaying angers me greatly. That's probably it for this team for me, you all can use it/modify it if you like, but as for me I'm moving on to different things now, it was fun while it lasted.
