Oh... Battle Factory...
I just lost on Battle 49 (Yes, that's right, against Thorton on the Gold Print match). I'd had a great run, using Toxic Stall Registeel to net all my wins from 35-42, then a similar Toxic Stall Cradily for matches 43-48 (Double Team is banned for a reason!). I'd had a terrible selectionn of pokes in this run, the only legend that appeared was Regigigas (lol), but Cradily always managed to save my hide. My team when I met with Thorton was Sitrus Berry Download P-Z, Endure-Salac Reversal Heracross, and Lefties Toxic Stall Cradily.
Thorton led with Staraptor. I couldn't afford to switch out of it, and P-Z went down to CC. I sent out Heracross next, using Endure to activate Salac berry. However, the Psychic AI knew I would, and used CC instead, taking me LITERALLY to ~45% HP, just enough so my berry didn't activate, and I'd be 2HKO'd. My only choice was to risk Endure again... and it worked, I activated Salac and OHKO'd Staraptor next turn with Reversal. Next comes Gallade... and which point I know I'm in a bind... I use Reversal, praying that a resisted 300BP move will be enough against Gallade's pitiful Defense... and it survives with under 5% HP. It uses CC to finish Heracross, and Cradily is promptly OHKO'd by CC as well.
Ironic that the only attack Thorton ever used against me was Close Combat. Guess I'll be taking a break from the Factory for a while... losing on the Gold Print match is a killer. I'll upload the battle to wifi battles if anyone wants to watch, and take a picture when I get the chance for proof.
