My Oma-Top post ended with the words: "Obviously, I´ll give this team more screen time, it´s just that I probably need a break to get my „skill“ back lol." #11: Rhyperior, Dusknoir, Gyarados, Volcarona 1. FO rhy, shadow sneak, shell smash 2. sucker punch failed, muddy water, rhy KO, trick room -> gyarados 3. shadow sneak, waterfall Oma KO, sucker failed -> latios 4. dusk fling OHKO latios, Top aerial ace KO Noir, Gyara giga impact -> Scizor / Volcarona 5.

Scizor Bullet punch, Gyara waterfall KO 0-1 Ahahahaha, losing at #11 is soo "raising my level of play"... #76 vs Ace Trainer Farley: Porygon2 & Mienshao 1. Pory2 dowload spA raise, Top FO Pory2, Mien HJK, Focu Sash, Oma Shell Smash. 2. Switched in Scizor to absorb the predicted Feint, Mien HJK, CH OHKO Scizor, Top AA 95% to Mien, Pory2 Tri Attack CH, Top fainted. - me Latios+Oma in 3.

Latios DPulse, Pory2 fainted, Arca Crunch, Latios at 52/156 HP. - oponent Metagross 5. Latios DPulse, Arca Sitrus Berry, Arca Crunch, Latios fainted. 0-2 Apparently Mien4 is a kicker and doesn´t like FO nor Feint. I was really shocked at the double CH because I´m used to CH myself as I´m the one whose attacking, most of the time. Won´t even start on the insane Shell Smash in front of a priority Fighter, go me. Next streak... #78 vs Socialite: Zapdos, Cobalion, Thundurus, Suicune 1. Top Fake Out, Zap avoided (#1), Zap DT, Coba ???, Oma Shell Smash. 2.

Latios DPulse, Zap fainted. 1-0 I hate that Subway Zapdos with a passion. With 197 HP / 115 def / 142 sD and BrightPowder+DT+Roost it´s almost impossible to take down once you start missing it, which you will. Pressure doesn´t help your cause either. It´s been a long time since I´ve been this annoyed (angry) during a battle, no wonder. Shell Smash HP Rock is a clear OHKO, which is amazing...if you hit. Honestly, I didn´t expect Latios to be the hero an actually pull off an impossible win. He did. The streak went on, until... #135 vs Roughneck Ganymed: Gliscor, Mamoswine, Wailord, Cryogonal 1. Top Fake Out Mamo, Mamo avoided, Gliscor Acrobatics Top to 94/156 HP, Oma Shell Smash, Mamo Quake, Oma Sash, Top 9/156 HP. 2. Top Sucker Punch Glisc, LO dmg, Top fainted, Oma Muddy Water, Glisc avoided, Mamo avoided, Mamo Quake, Oma fainted. - me Latios + Scizor 3. Latios DPulse, Glisc fainted, Scizor SD, Mamo Quake Scizor to 78/156 HP. - oponent Wailord 4. Scizor Bullet Punch, Mamo fainted, Latios DPulse 85% to Wailord, Wailord Hydro Pump, Scizor fainted. - oponent Cryogonal 5. Latios DPulse, Wailord fainted, Cryo Blizzard, Latios fainted. 0-1 Well, well, an ugly Fake Out miss due to Lax Incense followed by a double-miss with Muddy Water, f..k. Telling myself and everyone else that a double-miss hasn´t gotten me beaten yet was yesterday (actually, before Thursday). I do wonder though why I didn´t just attack with both turn1. FO+Ice Beam Gliscor or FO+Muddy Water or even Mach Punch+Muddy Water. A double miss in the latter scenario wouldn´t have been as bad. Next, I SD Scizor instead of attacking...Superpower OHKOs Mamoswine. Even at –1, Bullet Punch does like 140% min dmg to Cryogonal. Even BP+DP on Mamoswine and letting Gliscor do whatever it wants (supposedly U-Turn Latios) would´ve been better. Oh well, maybe I would´ve missed Mamo, because Lax Incense is the most evil item. Now Latios Dragon Pulse does 213-252 dmg / 277 HP (77-91%) to Wailord while Grass Knot is an OHKO. 6/12 Roughneck Pokémon are weak to Grass Knot (Mamo / Rhy / Whis / Phan / Wail / Walr), another 2 are hit hard by it (Basti/Glis), Rapi/Pins/Vanil/Cryo are bad for Grass Knot. But, it OHKOs Mamoswine, so I could´ve used GK+SD turn 3.... Of course, Pokémon and everything else in life is not about „what if“...I lost the battle... so the fact still stands, that I achieved the highest streak with this team on the first try, which is weird.
