Last time it cost me my TerraCott streak. Yeah and this time its QC activated turn 1 and Blizzard froze Meta, which was supposed to Quake away Flareon (I subbed Torn and it avoided Blizzard), instead Meta fainted to Overheat...it wasn´t an easy battle but I played flawlessly and FO Glace turn 2 (its QC was activating again) while AcroKOing Flareon, afterwards I had the upper hand against Espy and Umby.

Afterwards had a crazy battle #231 that ended 0-0 as my Hydra woke up after 1 turn of sleep against Zong and managed to finish off while fainting to LO damage. I thought I had it won, but turn 4 of TR, 30% CurseHippo didn´t rest for the second time and Quaked instead, which threw me off as I used FO+Dark Pulse on Zong (couldn´t Thrower because that sucker used Rain Dance before that)...oh man, I was a goner here: Video 14-81672-48950: battle #231 vs Harlequin Athos: Hippowdon, Conkeldurr, Musharna, Bronzong 1.

Zap Air Cutter, Cham 10/136, Cham Ice Punch, Zap KO. 1-0 That Risha gets on my nerves...see how she pulled out ArtiTres lead twice? That means I have to decide which one of mine will faint turn 1 as I can´t switch in Hydra (due to Blizzard), which I normally do against Fires...lol at my different approach in the same situation :p #300 vs Harlequin: Bronzong, Quagsire, Rhyperior, Reuniclus 1. Quake, Acro, Fling, TR 2. Sub, Slide, Quake double KO ...I didn´t save the video but I won 1-0 thanks to Rhyperior Quaking its partner at 2-2 instead of Hammer Arming Hydra. #314 vs Ice Worker: Beartic, Walrein, Abomasnow, Froslass - Blizzard #2 froze Meta after it KOd Bear and Sash Aboma (Acro+IH), afterwards Hydra hit Lass with Dark Pulse and Cham OHKOd Walrein...I would have probably lost, had Lass avoided the Dark Pulse... #331 video + log vs Battle Girl (will add this later, actually did not overwrite this battle with my #350 loss) #333 vs Doctor: Marowak, Samurott, Froslass, Weezing 1. Torn Acro, Meta Quake, Wak fainted, Samu Ice Beam, CH, Tornadus fainted. - my Hydra, foe Froslass 2. Hydra Protect, Lass Blizzard, Hydra protected, Meta Quake, Samu Salac Berry, Ice Beam, Hydra protected. 3. Hydra Protect, but it failed, Lass Blizzard, Hydra avoided, Samu Torrent Hydro Pump, Meta fainted. - my Medicham 4. Cham FO, Samu fainted, Lass Destiny Bond, Hydra Dark Pulse, Lass fainted, took Hydra down with it. - foe Weezing 5. Psycho Cut, Toxic. 6. Psycho Cut, Weezing fainted. 1-0 The Peterko always loses his streaks on sunday curse... #350 vs Ranger (set 3): Gyarados, Excadrill, Metagross, Milotic -> here I know Gyara is going to Stone Edge Tornadus (or DD) and Exca Quake because of having a Flying partner instead of Rock Slide... 1. Meta back, Hydra in, Tornadus used Substitute, Gyarados used Stone Edge, Sub broke, Exca Quake, didn´t affect anyone on the field. -> good prediction, but unfortunately Stone Edge had to hit...now I will obviously go for the Flamethrower and try another Sub, although Exca Slide is obvious...mistake #1 2. Tornadus used Substitute, Hydreigon used Flamethrower, Excadrill survives with 10% HP, Gyarados used Stone Edge, Sub broke, Excadrill used Rock Slide, Tornadus fainted. -> yeah, those were actually two mistakes, not just one: a) I didn´t dmg calc Flamethrower, although I knew/should have known it wasn´t going to OHKO because sometimes it doesn´t b) I should´ve used Tailwind with Tornadus, because stupid Gyara is 1 speed point faster than my Medicham...but this turn wasn´t game-deciding - I sent in Medicham 3. Medicham used Fake Out, Hydreigon used Dragon Pulse, Excadrill fainted, Gyarados flinched. OK things go smoothly without BrightPowder hax, it´s 3-3 - foe sent in Metagross -> here I checked the Meta set and did Hydra/Cham damage calcs on Gyara...I decided to get rid of Gyarados with Dark Pulse + Low Kick, for a chance to flinch it and do the most damage to Meta in case Dark Pulse CH KOs... 4. Hydreigon used Dark Pulse, Gyarados used Dragon Dance, Medicham used Low Kick, Gyarados fainted, Metagross used Meteor Mash, Hydreigon fainted. - I sent in Metagross, foe Milotic -> the following turn is game-deciding. What would you do in this scenario? The obvious answer is... 5. Medicham used Low Kick, Metagross used Iron Head, foe Meta at 10%, Milotic used Hydro Pump, Cham 18/136, foe Meta flinched. 6. Foe Meta used Bullet Punch, Cham fainted, my Meta used Iron Head, foe Meta fainted, Milo used Blizzard. 7. My Meta used Iron Head 43% to Milo, Milo used Hydro Pump. 8. My Meta used Iron Head 43% to Milo, Milo used Hydro Pump, my Meta fainted. 0-1 The answer was too clear if had checked Milotic set/stats...oh wait, I didn´t post the answer yet...I should have Quaked with Metagross. Having a CB Meta means that once in a while, I have to Quake my own Medicham, this was one of those. I would´ve won, no matter what my Medicham did. See, Milotic 3 has 170 HP / 99 defense and thus 0 HP and 0 defense EVs. My CB Meta does 88-104 dmg to Milotic = 51.7 - 61.7% My Medicham does 153-181 dmg to Milotic = 90-100%, which is a 37,5% chance to OHKO, even higher chance due to potential CH. That means my Meta will always 2HKO Milotic 3 and it obviously 2HKOs foe Metagross 3... So, my winning options were: a) Medicham Low Kicks Milotic + Meta Earthquakes = Milotic faints 100%, foe Meta at low health, Medicham probably faints. Next turn my Meta KOs foe Meta b) Medicham Low Kicks foe Meta + my Meta Earthquakes = foe Meta faints 100%, foe Milo at <50% health. Next turn my Meta or Cham KOs foe Milotic. This was the last battle I fought before lunch-break and thus I didn´t take the time to analyze the situation properly, damn...I´m not really angry, because there were some really amazing battles, a few of those (I´ll update post #1001 with the logs) I only won thanks to luck/not having bad luck... On the other hand, this team´s so amazing that it would deserve to be at least #2 on the list, not the current #4 (even behind my Lee-Latios-Hydra-Meta 390 streak, which is almost auto-loss against bad matchup Ice Worker). I really want to prove that and let a good chance slip.
