    This was a very good match, sad that it decided by a 50% chance =/

    yes, but without close combat def drops (since he would sac flygon and luke would switch out) he only takes 70% or so from mach punch, leaving him with plenty of health to take 20% from life orb and 6% from sr. granted, he kills the last mon with 10% health, so it's a "tie," but shoddy recognizes it as a win for him.

    A jolly life orb Infernape can do up to 83% to a 4hp neutral Lucario (77,5 on average), adding 3% (due to 4x SR resistance) means that, on average, Lucario will have 2 turns of life orb recoil before fainting (assuming that Lucario is at full health when switching in).

    This one was a great battle between two great players.

    Great warstory. It's pretty nice to have the option to watch it on youtube as well.

    Good game guys! I have battled MDragon before and although we have a fair record he certainly can be very scary.

    Haha excellent warstory hector. You actually made me chuckle IRL when you mach punched his lucario, I saw the speedtie ending there and then. It was a really good read, probably the most enjoyable warstory I've read in quite a while. Thanks :) and good job.

    That warstory kept me reading for the whole thing, it was awesome :D

    The ending as a speed tie made me wonder who'd win, after I saw the SD Infernape kill Luke, then Flygon kill Ape.

    Nice read.

    That was an utterly phenomenal battle in almost every way. I'll give it another day or two before it gets archived.

    Great warstory and excellent use of some Pokemon variants and props for using Empoleon! That was very enjoyable and the comments were good. U-Turn was everywhere!!

    Hey congrats on the archive (I assume).

    This was a great battle, I just got too lazy to post my props for it ^_^.

    Like others have said, excellent battle and warstory.

    I'm curious about the reeenactment... Like, did you have to try it more than once? I can imagine stuff like accidental crits occurring, or even the ending speed tie not going the right way, lol.

    edit: that makes much more sense now

    Thanks guys, to the above poster. As I said, SilentEcho made the reenactment and he just followed the log and moves. In the Flygon speed tie, he just gave mine 1 more speed stat than "MDragon's". Everything else was pretty much the same.
