The game then would hinge on whether or not the second Hypnosis hit (49% chance of them both hitting), and this implies that the Gengar was Scarfed as if it wasn't Weavile would go first.
A Weavile hiding behind a Substitute makes short work of Focus Sash Garchomp, any of the Latis, Gengar, and basically the entire metagame. Unfortunately for me, despite it being overused in all the other states, no-one in Perth used Gengar(aside from the guy who won Day One (whom I never got to fight). Oh well.
