You´re right, of course. It was the first battle that day (after 147 the day before) and I guess I panicked upon seeing Glaceon and maybe I had that other battle I posted (where I got frozen) still in mind. That pokémon is a nightmare (QC/Sash/Powder/Snow Cloak and Blizzard, are you serious Game Freak?), like #2 after Froslass (did I mention I hate 178 speed?). Yes, in that first moment I forgot the 178 speed on Espeon that Terra has a 50/50 chance to OHKO...
With Tailwind up, Latios and Darmanitan would´ve cleaned up nicely.
I remember another case of losing because of not Tailwinding when it was obvious and that was in Paris top 16 this year omg...
