    What’s up guys? At the time of this match, this match was just to see how this Ubers team fared against other teams for Team Trials. Once the match ended, “DAYUMN!” was all I could say. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the match!

    Okay, so first team that I've seen that uses both groudon and kyogre and isn’t really weather dependent. I like having the rain up though as it helps with Ferrothorn and Rain Dish Tentacruel. Since my Kyogre is scarfed, I’m screwed if he leads with Groudon. My answer to Groudon though is bulky Ghost-Arceus and Giratina, but I don’t feel like risking Dragon Claw so I’ll lead with Arceus and work from there.


    toybox sent out Kyogre!
    Jack Harkness sent out Arceus-Ghost!
    The foe's Kyogre's Drizzle made it rain!

    Well, not what I like to see when I expect a Groudon lead.. I don’t want to stay in to take a rain-boosted STAB attack in the face, so I’ll go to Dialga and scout what type it is.

    Turn 1


    Jack Harkness called Arceus-Ghost back!
    Jack Harkness sent out Dialga!

    Dialga is exerting its pressure!

    The foe's Kyogre used Water Spout!
    It's not very effective... Dialga lost 49% of its health!
    Rain continues to fall!

    Dialga restored a little HP using its Leftovers!
    [​IMG]

    Damn. About 50% so it has to be Specs. He may predict me to attack here though. And if it’s water spout, I’ve got Ferrothorn and Tentacruel and my own Kyogre to help me handle it. I am worried though about his Palkia. In any case, he’d probably expect a Thunder so I think that Jirachi may be Specially Defensive. I”ll just set up Rocks since Fire Blast does shit.

    Turn 2

    toybox called Kyogre back!
    toybox sent out Jirachi!

    Dialga restored a little HP using its Leftovers!
    [​IMG]

    Okay, as predicted. He switched it in to take an attack, so I’m inclined to think that it’s supposed to take bulky hits and therefore, not a Choiced version with Trick. I'd better take this opportunity to set up Spikes with Ferro.

    Turn 3

    Jack Harkness called Dialga back!
    Jack Harkness sent out Ferrothorn!

    The foe's Jirachi used Thunder Wave!
    Ferrothorn was paralyzed!

    T-Wave. Guessing Iron Head, Wish, Protect/Fire Punch/Ice Punch. I’m not worried about Fire Punch since Rain is up, so I’ll just set up Spikes since I’m predicting Groudon…

    or maybe… not quite yet? I’m not sure what he wants to do. Maybe he wants to WoW so I’d have trouble with Ogre? Probably best to stay in and Leech Seed.

    Fuck. I need Ferrothorn for Kyogre. I’ve got to phaze ASAP. Dialga can probably take its hits really well.

    Turn 7

    Dialga fainted!
    Rain continues to fall!

    Goddamn it. His 4th is probably Shadow Ball, which I doubt Arceus can live, and I’d really like it for Jirachi and Groudon. Giratina is on the same boat. Kyogre is going to be the main offense of this team. Ferro I’ll need for Leech Seed and help handle Kyogre. Tenta to set up Toxic Spikes and Spin. The team desperately relies on degeneration, so I’ll have to go to Tentacruel, sac it, and hope that I can leave him without a sub up.
    Jack Harkness sent out Tentacruel!

    I kinda figure most people would Ice Beam here, but if I’m going to have any chance at keeping myself alive, I’ve got to get the layer up. He’s got no spinner. Now to break his subs.

    A critical hit! Tentacruel lost 63% of its health!

    Tentacruel fainted!
    Rain continues to fall!

    Okay. Tenta down and it did its job, except for the fact that the sub is still up =[. He may have some defensive investment since Giratina doesn’t outspeed a whole lot so I’m going to hope I live the Shadow Ball with Kyogre and can Ice Beam away. It doesn’t look like I’m missing much on his team with max damage water spout anyway, given he’s got a Palkia and a Kyogre and Groudon for Drought. I'll just have to play around Jirachi.

    Jack Harkness sent out Kyogre!

    Okay. That thing is going to be a pain in the ass. I don’t want to go to Ferrothorn in case he predicts the switch and goes back to giratina again 9.9 I figure the best guy to go to here is Arceus to WoW and easily outspeed and Judgment it out.

    Thank you Toxic Spikes. Reducing Water Spout damage helps a lot. Leech Seeding is the best option as I really need the health now.

    Success, but right now, I don’t really think I want to Seed again. I think Water Spout is safe enough to the point where Giratina can come in and finish off Kyogre next turn with Shadow Sneak and Giratina is at a low enough HP to be sneaked at anyway.

    But it looks like toybox has got his own plans. The last 3 Lucario I saw in Ubers were all specs’d or crappy versions. Based on the way he’s playing, I can assume he’s not running a crappy version since it is currently 4-6 toybox and I am backed against a corner against a Lucario with two deadly partners and a potentially threatening Palkia. If he’s Specs’d, I’m not so worried since I’ve got a Ferrothorn and 2 fighting immune mons alive. If he’s SD’d, that’s fine, I’ll just WoW. Probably best to WoW at any given rate since I’m pretty sure I can live a Crunch.

    [​IMG]

    YES! However, I can’t let Giratina die so easily now since Sneak is what’s going to help save me from a Giratina and a Kyogre sweep and potentially a Palkia save. It’s too important to let it die now. Rachi’s relatively weakened too so I could probably go to Ferrothorn or Seed it. Probably best to Arceus since I don’t need him alive right now.

    Okay, so I have my ass handed to me. 3-5 with no sure way of coming back. If his Palkia’s Scarfed, I am mortally screwed, though he hasn’t sent it out yet so maybe there is the chance that it’s not Scarfed. I’m 88.4% sure that his Groudon is support set with SR since Rachi hasn’t tried to set it up. Giratina is necessary to help handle Palkia and can help get Groudon of the picture. Sneak should take care of everyone else he has and if he tries to switch, D-Tail can help. Arceus can’t WoW out Groudon since T-Spikes are up. All it can do is probably only Judgment. I'm going to rely on Kyogre to be the offense of the team. Sure as hell not going to send him in. Anyway, I’m screwed and the timer's ticking.. Fuck it, sending Arceus again since if Sun’s in the way, I basically lose.

    • HSA for helping me out with the team.
    • Minimal Luck
    • AeSoft for developing the program that formatted this warstory.

    Slops:
    • Me being too predictable and saccing Ferro for the Luke switch
    • Not much really. Battle was well played
    • This event
    • Snunch and uragg for being so bad at ubers to make me play ubers :|

    Final Words (open)

    DAYUMN!

    Amazing, amazing, amazing. My few gripes were with some subtle hax, your giratina-o never got fully para'd over quite a few turns, and he definitely should have switched in palkia over groudon. (Also you should have known that sub giratina-o is subcm and gone straight to dialga)

    Still an easy 10/10, beautiful format, wonderful play.

    Funny thing is that giratina-o was MVP on both teams, with vastly different sets.

    Good Warstory. I enjoyed it, at any rate.
    But how sure are you that Kyogre held Specs? It looked distinctly like a Modest Scarfogre to me, especially since it seems to have outsped your Arceus. Also, I run a specially defensive Dialga, and if the Kyogre has Specs, you're going to to get 2HKOd. So I think that's actually probably a Scarfogre. Also, a Scarfed Kyogre would make the Palkia not holding a Scarf make a lot more sense; he doesn't seem to have a single Scarfer on the team, an unusual thing in Ubers. Or in general, really.

    But anyway, great job stalling him out with the residual damage. We need more Warstories in Ubers; I think I might try to write one at some point.

    Your team is pretty standard, everyone run the same, so you dont have to worry about resultat. Also, he greatly missplayed in midgame/late game, he had the game won with Palkia, too bad.

    An okay warstory, 6/10; gg.

    PS : SpecsOgre 2hko easily Dialga support, it was obvious he's scarfed.

    This battle was the first time I ever encountered the Sub-CM Gira-O, so I didn't have any idea what was going on as this was like my 10th battle and most of the people on the ladder just ran offensive Gira-O, which I assumed it was.

    At the time I wrote this, I was still getting introduced to Ubers, and I thought that 50% was the point for determining it was specs'd or not given the EV spread that HSA helped me with. The only editing I did after I originally finished was just updating some of the comments (mainly making the SNEAK ones present tense). Most of this story is written from a couple of months ago though.

    Thank you very much for your criticisms and comments guys!

    That was pretty much the most badass Giratina-O i've seen in a while.

    Awesome warstory dude.

    That was good. A few misplays here and there were obvious, but they didn't really detract from the game. It's good to see Ubers warstories being posted, this forum really needs the activity.

    Title really should have been "A Giratina-O Warstory".

    Fun read, commentary was amusing. :)

    Good stuff. I love the presentation, commentary, battle. Everything! I didn't even have to watch the replay since you described the battle so clearly.

    I remember this match :p

    After the battle, I was hitting myself for not switching into Palkia during the last crucial turns. I guess I had a little brain fart there. Overall, it was a nice match and it was an honor being in this warstory!
