    The Conkeldurr-Gallade paragraph made me laugh.

    Really. Gallade and Scrafty completely outclass Conk at Bulk Up.

    Really? I don't think they outclass Conkelderp, they're simply different. Conkelderp has Mach Punch, which is the reason he's used so much.

    Awesome, awesome warstory. I can't believe no-one noticed/commented on your excellent My Chemical Romance interweaving.

    10/10 and a disc

    Amazing Warstory. Loved the Conkeldurr and Gallade 'Old Spice' moment.

    Have a Luvdisc for this awesome Warstory!

    This is probably one of my favorite warstories I have read this week. Good job on it. I give it a 10/10.

    This was hilarious. I don't know why, but for some reason sun teams are more fun to read about. Luvdisc'd, and I'm gonna go buy some Old Spice.

    Also...

    Wha?!? No Justice Gallade?! T-T

    The Old Spice reference was fucking gold. This was really well written, I like your writing style as reading your story felt like one of my friends was telling it in conversation. You made a few small mistakes, but you caught them yourself, which is the important part. Great format, pretty decent battle, fun to read. Overall, very well done. =)
    9/10, please write more. Cheers!

    9.7 out of 10 and a Luvdisc. THIS is what War Stories should look like. I'm assuming the EV's on the Gallade were just 4/max/max...

    You've got some of the best commentary that I've ever heard anywhere. I especially liked the part in which you made a comparison of your Gallade & the standard Conkeldurr. Also, I thought that your referrences to MW2 & Black Ops were very witty.

    The battle itself is great, but sometimes, the commentary is what makes a warstory stand out, & yours did.

    A lot of fun to read. Very good commentary.
    Fairly good battle, not amazing but still rather good.

    Wow, I liked this, especially the useless trivia. (And it's interesting seeing what a metagame I don't play is like. I suppose that happens a lot with warstories nowadays, given that I don't play 5th gen OU...)
