    I need Ralts to get counters so it doesn't suck anymore ;)

    Ralts, we need to approach this physical attacker with some caution. Start by calming yourself to give yourself some more firepower. Then, create some copies of yourself so it won't know who to hit. Finish this round with a STAB Psychic. If he tries to use Earthquake in the first or third action, blink into a tree to avoid it!

    Summary:
    Calm Mind->Double Team (2)->Psychic
    IF phanpy uses Earthquake in the first or third rounds, THEN Teleport into the trees' branches to dodge.

    EDIT: Odor Sleuth?! You creative son of a (expletive)!!!!!

    Hah! He thinks Earthquake is the threat!

    Use your pickup ability to pick a Rabuta Berry without using an action, and use Natural Gift! Then, depending on who wins the speed tie on action 2, i want you to do the following:
    If Ralts goes first, odour sleuth to discover the real one, then natural gift.
    If Ralts goes second, Natural Gift First, then Odour sleuth.

    -------------------

    Well here is a lovely forest full of berries to snatch up and eat, and over there is a neat little grove with a clearing and everything, and over to this side is a gentle spring near a creek and over there is-- oh look a Poke battle! Arcanite's got a Phanpy named Don Corneo and is gonna battle shinyskarmory's Ralts, Mentalist! Without hesitation, Don picks up a Rabuta Berry and uses it for a Natural Gift attack that looks like it really hurt Mentalist! Concentrating through the pain, Mentalist Calms its Mind and starts darting around for a Double Team, creating 2 clone likenesses of itself! How will Don hit the right one? Don knows, and uses Odor Sleuth to hone in on the correct target, which it nails with a second Natural Gift! Mentalist, realizing it needs to stop fooling around if it wants to win, strikes Don with a beam of Psychic energy, knocking it back a bit and lowering its stats! What an exciting start!

    --------------------

    Action 1:

    Phanpy: Pickup (+Rabuta Berry)
    Phanpy: Natural Gift (15 damage, -6 energy, crit fails, 1/8 Berry uses)
    Ralts: Calm Mind (-6 energy, +1 SpA/SpD for 4 Actions)

    Action 2:

    Ralts: Double Team [2 Clones] (-8 energy, 2 Clones created)
    Phanpy: Odor Sleuth (-6 energy, Ralts locked onto for 6 Actions)

    Action 3:

    Phanpy: Natural Gift (15 damage, -6 energy, crit fails, 2/8 Berry uses)
    Ralts: Psychic (14 damage, -6 energy, crit fails, SpD drop successful, Phanpy -1 SpD)

    OK, this speed tie business is annoying, so Bulldoze Ralts into a tree trunk! Then use your natural gift twice!

    IF Ralts tries to will-o-wisp, block it with a protect once, and move actions down (Keep in original order)

    Can we try to finish by saturday, as I'm going on holiday for a few nights then?

    Sure, that's fine.

    Ralts, I should have worried more about the Natural Gift. Teleport into the trees to dodge Bulldoze, and then use a combo of Psychic and Magical Leaf! (Intended effect: using psychic energy to launch the leaves at higher speed)

    Teleport (into the trees)->Psychic+Magical Leaf combo->cooldown

    --------------------

    Mentalist quickly Teleports into a nearby tree, avoiding Don's Bulldoze attack! That won't stop Don Corneo, though, who hits Mentalist in the tree even with another Natural Gift! Mentalist then unleashes a cool Psychic Leaf combination that does reasonable damage, but as it cools down it takes a fourth Natural Gift from Don!

    --------------------

    Action 1:

    Ralts: Teleport (-7 energy, Ralts teleports to nearby tree)
    Phanpy: Bulldoze (miss, -4 energy)

    Action 2:

    Phanpy: Natural Gift (15 damage, -6 energy, crit fails, 3/8 Berry uses)
    Ralts: Psychic/Magical Leaf Combo (22 damage, -16 energy, crit fails, SpD drop fails)

    Action 3:

    Ralts: Cooldown
    Phanpy: Natural Gift (15 damage, -6 energy, crit fails, 4/8 Berry uses)

    Wow-that combo packs more punch then Fawkes' Reversal+Night Slash combo!

    You're a little low on health, so start by Tracing Phanpy's Pickup so you can grab a Sitrus Berry without using a second action. Then, use the Psychic Leaf Combo again.

    Trace Pickup->(grab Sitrus Berry)Psychic Leaf Combo->cooldown

    ^You obviously weren't that low on health then... Try a double reversal combo at 1 HP, with STAB! :-s

    The Sitrus berry will only restore 5 HP Initially, so we can nail him with a SuperNatural gift (Natural Gift + HNatural Gift Combo!). Finish him off (If he still lives) with an ice shard!

    --------------------

    Mentalist quickly Traces Don's Pickup ability, but in taking the time to do so it eats an enormous Supernatural Gift that very, very nearly knocks it out! Still, with 1 HP, Mentalist grabs a Sitrus Berry to heal some health back before repeating its earlier Psychic Leaf combo! Don finishes cooling off and darts forward with an Ice Shard, doing enough damage to finally KO the opponent Ralts! Arcanite WINS!

    --------------------

    Action 1:

    Ralts: Trace [Pickup] (Ralts's Ability changed to Pickup for 6 Actions)
    Phanpy: Natural Gift x2 Combo (29 damage, -32 energy, crit fails, 6/8 Berry uses)

    Action 2:

    Ralts: Pickup (+Sitrus Berry)
    Ralts: Item Activation [Sitrus Berry] (+5 HP)
    Phanpy: Cooldown
    Ralts: Psychic/Magical Leaf Combo (22 damage, -16 energy, crit fails, SpD drop fails)

    Action 3:

    Phanpy: Ice Shard (6 damage, -3 energy, KO)
    Ralts: KO'd
