    UBERS WARSTORY

    Hi. I'm locoghoul and this is my first warstory. After reading commathew6's ubers warstory I realized almost no one posts anything related to my favorite tier.

    So, my team isn't exactly good, but I like to believe it does well against rain teams (read Kyogre abusers). Given the PO stats, almost half of the teams I'd be facing will have Kyogre on their team, which almost automatically means Ferrothorn too. So I decided on making my latest team a kind of "anti-rain-stall" team. However, by doing so I became a part of the system and my team can be labeled as semi-stall/"stallish" as well. Oh well, I was just anti-metagaming anyways. I think the battle I'm presenting is decent enough to get out a good warstory.

    Team Preview:

    locoghoul's team

    [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    K.S.C.!'s team

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    From team preview I can see the infamous Manaphy (you should really fear it, really), Arceus (from team preview you can't tell which Arceus it is) and an unknown Dialga set (can run several). I usually lead with my balloon Dialga myself so I thought his might be support as well and decided to gamble it with Deoxys-A bluffing a Sash (mine has LO).

    Log info will be in black.
    Battle comments will be in green.

    Battle between locoghoul and Z.C.S! started!

    Tier: Wifi Ubers
    Variation: +6, -26
    Rule: Rated
    Rule: Sleep Clause
    Rule: Species Clause
    Rule: Wifi Battle

    K.S.C.! sent out Dialga!
    locoghoul sent out ID4 (Deoxys-A)!
    ID4 is exerting its Pressure!
    The foe's Dialga is floating on a balloon!
    Dialga is exerting its Pressure!



    [​IMG]100% [​IMG]100%


    He didn't switch his lead and it has a balloon; so that reassures my theory of support Dialga wanting to set up rocks. Having used Deoxys-A extensively I know the oldest trick in the book is to lure him into a fighting move so that Gira-O can come in freely and force it out with a possible Shadow Sneak. Still, I usually start off without overpredicting so I went with Low Kick.


    Start of turn 1
    Z.C.S! called Dialga back!
    Z.C.S! sent out Giratina-O


    ID4 used Low Kick!
    It had no effect!



    [​IMG]100% [​IMG]100%​


    Ok, so at least no rocks for now. I was expecting Dragon Tail to predict the switch but went for Skarmory, again, just in case he was using Shadow Sneak.

    Start of turn 2
    locoghoul called ID4 back!
    locoghoul sent out Skarmory!

    The foe's Giratina-O used
    Will-O-Wisp!
    Skarmory was burned!

    Skarmory is hurt by its burn!


    [​IMG]93% (burned) [​IMG]100%

    :/ WoW damage will be an issue for later. I'm suppose to be saving Skarm for Extremekiller but I don't want to eat a Dragon Tail if I switch. If he has WoW, then he doesn't have HP Fire so I can take the dragon special move and survive either Dragon Claw or Dragon Tail next turn although if he goes for Outrage it might kill. Still, the only way I beat Manaphy usually is either Psyshock from Deo-A or Thunder from Dialga and neither OHKO unless it has taken at least ~25% depending on the set (CM Manaphy is a beast). Spikes it is.


    Start of turn 3
    The foe's Giratina-O used Draco Meteor!
    It's not very effective...
    Skarmory lost 165 HP! (49% of its health)
    The foe's Giratina-O's Sp. Att. sharply fell!

    Skarmory used
    Spikes!
    Spikes were scattered all around the feet of Z.C.S!'s team!


    [​IMG]38% (burned) [​IMG]100% (-2 Sp. Attack)

    Now I hope Outrage doesn't kill in case he packs it, if not I can safely Roost off the damage regardless of his moves.

    Start of turn 4
    The foe's Giratina-O used Shadow Sneak!
    It's not very effective...
    Skarmory lost 21 HP! (6% of its health)

    Skarmory used Roost!



    [​IMG]76% (burned) [​IMG]100% (-2 Sp. Attack)

    Maybe he misclicked? Anyways I can now Whirlwind predicting the switch or set up more spikes. I decided to set up Spikes since they'll help a lot against Manaphy.

    Start of turn 5
    Z.C.S! called Giratina-O back!
    Z.C.S! sent out [K]yogre! (Kyogre)
    The foe's [K]yogre is hurt by spikes!

    The foe's [K]yogre's Drizzle made it rain!
    Skarmory used Spikes!
    Spikes were scattered all around the feet of Z.C.S!'s team!

    Rain continues to fall!



    [​IMG]64% (burned) [​IMG]87%

    Good. I have a Kyogre switch in so I don't have anything to worry about. Even if he double switches into Ferrothorn, I get a free switch into Xatu (who walls Ferrothorn for free) and since I have the hazards advantage... Gastrodon I choose you!

    Start of turn 6
    Z.C.S! called [K]yogre back!
    Z.C.S! sent out Dialga! (Dialga)

    The foe's Dialga is floating on a balloon!
    The foe's Dialga is exerting its Pressure!
    locoghoul called Skarmory back!
    locoghoul sent out Gastrodon-Ea! (Gastrodon-East)


    [​IMG]100%
    [​IMG]100%

    Again, not what I expected. He probably wants those rocks up given all the switching going on. I send out Xatu to get rocks of my own...

    Start of turn 7
    locoghoul called Gastrodon-Ea back!
    locoghoul sent out Xatu!

    The foe's Dialga used Draco Meteor!
    Xatu lost 334 HP! (100% of its health)
    Xatu fainted!
    The foe's Dialga's Sp. Att. sharply fell!

    Rain continues to fall!
    locoghoul sent out ID4! (Deoxys-A)



    5-6
    [​IMG]100% [​IMG]100% (-2 Sp. Attack)

    He outpredicts me once again. Now I'm not gonna fall for the same trick again, but on the other hand he must be thinking about me predicting the switch into Gira-O. He'll probably set up rocks this turn (and I can't do anything about it) so I'll go for Low Kick again.


    Start of turn 8
    ID4 used Low Kick!
    It's super effective!
    The foe's Dialga lost 87% of its health!
    The foe's Dialga's Air Balloon popped!
    ID4 is hurt by its Life Orb!

    The foe's Dialga used Stealth Rock!
    Pointed stones float in the air around locoghoul's team!

    Rain continues to fall!


    [​IMG]90% [​IMG]12% (-2 Sp. Attack)

    Even though it went as I thought, I was somewhat surprised he survived. Ice Beam should kill and hurt Gira-O if he decides to switch.

    Start of turn 9
    Z.C.S! called Dialga back!
    Z.C.S! sent out Giratina-O

    ID4 used
    Ice Beam!
    It's super effective!
    The foe's Giratina-O lost 84% of its health!
    ID4 is hurt by its Life Orb!

    Rain continues to fall!


    [​IMG]80% [​IMG]16%

    Excellent. I realize I also need rocks up to minimize his switches. But Dialga must be in good shape if it wants to check Manaphy or Kyogre (in case I have to sac Gastrodon). So I sent Skarmory to take the Shadow Sneak.

    Start of turn 10
    locoghoul called ID4 back!
    locoghoul sent out Skarmory!
    Pointed stones dug into Skarmory!

    The foe's Giratina-O used Shadow Sneak!
    It's not very effective...
    Skarmory lost 21 HP! (6% of its health)



    [​IMG]38% (burned) [​IMG]16%

    Now I'll just sacrifice Skarm as it can't switch into Arceus with such low health anyway. I could switch into Gastrodon to take the DM but with Kyogre and Manaphy around I value him more than a burnt Skarm.

    Start of turn 11
    The foe's Giratina-O used Draco Meteor!
    It's not very effective...
    Skarmory lost 128 HP! (38% of its health)
    Skarmory fainted!
    The foe's Giratina-O Sp. Att. sharply fell!

    Rain continues to fall!
    locoghoul sent out Giratina-O!
    Pointed stones dug into Giratina-O!

    [​IMG]87% [​IMG]16% (-2 Sp. Attack)


    Speed tie? I run the standard set and it doesn't seem like he has HP Fire. I can survive a Shadow Sneak in case he wins the tie.



    Start of turn 12
    Giratina-O used Shadow Sneak!
    It's super effective!
    The foe's Giratina-O lost 15% of its health!
    The foe's Giratina-O fainted!

    Rain continues to fall!
    Z.C.S! sent out ]ialga! (Dialga)
    The foe's ]ialga is hurt by spikes!
    The foe's ]ialga fainted!

    Z.C.S! sent out [K]yogre! (Kyogre)
    The foe's [K]yogre is hurt by spikes!


    4-4
    [​IMG]87% [​IMG]62%


    2 Dragons with one Sneak. Gastrodon switch in seems obvious but should I Dragon Tail when the incoming double switch is Ferrothorn?


    Start of turn 13
    locoghoul called Giratina-O back!
    locoghoul sent out Gastrodon-Ea! (Gastrodon-East)
    Pointed stones dug into Gastrodon-Ea!

    The foe's [K]yogre used Scald!
    Gastrodon-Ea's Sp. Att. rose!
    Gastrodon-Ea's Storm Drain raised its special attack!



    [​IMG]100% (+1 Sp. Attack) [​IMG]68%

    Ok, no reason to lose calm yet. His sweepers are still intact so I can't risk my offensive pokes just yet. Will go for the Yawn as it will create more switches.

    Start of turn 14
    The foe's [K]yogre used Calm Mind!
    The foe's [K]yogre's Sp. Att. rose!
    The foe's [K]yogre's Sp. Def. rose!

    Gastrodon-Ea used Yawn!
    Gastrodon-Ea made the foe's [K]yogre feel drowsy!



    [​IMG]100% (+1 Sp. Attack) [​IMG]74% (+1 Sp. Attack/Sp. Def)

    Whenever I see Scald is usually a Cro set or Resttalk CM. At least he will be asleep on my terms and I can hopefully kill it with Dialga.


    Start of turn 15
    locoghoul called Gastrodon-Ea back!
    locoghoul sent out Dialga!
    Pointed stones dug into Dialga!

    Dialga is floating on a balloon!
    Dialga is exerting its Pressure!
    The foe's [K]yogre used Sleep Talk!
    But it failed!



    [​IMG]93% [​IMG]74% (+1 Sp. Attack/Sp. Def)

    Now, he could stay and play the lucky game or he could switch into Ferrothorn predicting the Dragon/Electric move. I'm gonna play safe and set up my rocks.

    Start of turn 16
    The foe's [K]yogre is fast asleep!
    The foe's [K]yogre used Sleep Talk!
    The foe's [K]yogre used Rest!
    But it failed!

    Dialga used Stealth Rock!
    Pointed stones float in the air around Z.C.S!'s team!




    [​IMG]93% [​IMG]80% (+1 Sp. Attack/Sp. Def)

    Hmm, lucky for me no Scald/CM yet. I guess he is a stubborn one. Either way, I just need to maim him so that a Psyshock from Deoxys-A would kill. From previous matches, I know that it does 45-50% to bulky Kyogres. In the lucky case, I can always get a crit, can't I?


    Start of turn 17
    The foe's [K]yogre is fast asleep!
    The foe's [K]yogre used Sleep Talk!
    The foe's [K]yogre used Rest!

    [​IMG]93% [​IMG]69%

    Well, I can't say that I'm not sorry for that but it was bound to happen if you want to play the odds. Now, it's kinda the same game. Either he risks to attack after a +3 (assuming is a TG Manaphy) or starts setting up on my face (CM Manaphy) in which case I can't do anything about it.


    Start of turn 21
    The foe's [M]anaphy used Rest!
    The foe's [M]anaphy went to sleep and became healthy!

    Dialga used Thunder!
    It's super effective!
    The foe's [M]anaphy lost 87% of its health!



    [​IMG]93% [​IMG]12%

    Hmm, 87% seems a little too much. Must be TG Manaphy. A combination of Shadow Sneak + Psyshock should kill.


    Start of turn 22

    And so, Dialga has AS instead of FB because I'm expecting to fight in the rain. It should be able to 2HKO if it wasn't for protect...

    Bad move on my part. Gira's base HP is 150 so in the rain he can just wall me.

    Giratina-O used Dragon Tail!
    The foe's [N]attri protected itself!


    [​IMG]51%[​IMG]100%

    I really lost Gira-O to his Ferrothorn. At least I'll know which Arceus he is running. I can still outplay him if it is Extremekiller as he won't be able to set up while I have Gira-O and +0 Extremespeed doesn't kill Gastrodon so I can Yawn him and force the switch.

    [​IMG]82%[​IMG]90%

    Ok, he went for the kill. Yawn should force him out and now that I know is a CM set Deo-A can potentially kill both Ferrothorn and Arceus as he hasn't seen Psyshock yet.

    Good. He will probably switch so I can try and go for the burn on Ferrothorn as I would rather have Ferrothorn awaken than Arceus (not sure if Psyshock will do +80%).

    This cost him the match as it would have been better -imo- to stay with Ferrothorn and take the Low Kick like a err, tentacle monster. No reason to show him that I had Psyshock either as you never know when you'll fight this person again. Ubers is not exactly the most diverse tier out there, so even when you see a lot of accounts, it's usually the same 20 ppl with alts.

    2-0


    PROs

    - Deoxys-A maiming half of his team
    - Skarmory for setting up Spikes
    - Dialga for checking Manaphy and Kyogre
    - His Ferrothorn for being annoying as always
    - K.S.C.! for outpredicting me most of the match


    SLOPs

    - Xatu for being deadweight
    - Me for not predicting well at the beggining.


    OK, constructive criticism will be appreciated since this is my first warstory. Special focus on the format, editing, etc. rather than the battle is what I'm looking for. My team doesn't usually get flashy sweeps so it's hard to get a good battle log where my opponent doesn't rage on me.

    Cool, I always enjoy reading Ubers. The battle was decent, though not chock-full of predictions and chain strategems like I enjoy, but was still lengthy for Ubers. Commentary was passable, formatting was good.

    7/10.

    Good read. It was excellent to see someone use Deoxys-S so skillfully and quite surprising to see a team that features neither Kyogre nor Groudon ! Excellent warstory, I look forward to reading more of your stuff in the future.

    Nice to see another Ubers warstory. Props for that. There were some good plays and not-so-good plays by both players, but thanks so much forgiving us this little slice of Ubers! But most of all, great job playing with some of the lesser-appreciated pokemon that can hold their own in the tier (Gastrodon ftw)! Too bad that great battles are getting hard to come by. The commentary was enough to convey your thought process while making those tough real-time decisions. Overall, an enjoyable read!

    I think that had he Draco Meteor'd again with Dialga against Deo-A he would've won, bad misplay there, but nice warstory overall! This just shows that Deo-A can be a monster when used correctly

    Thanks for the comments guys. I'm wondering why did this get move to Ubers section when the other Ubers warstory is still in Dragonspiral Tower?? Odd...

    Well, Deo-A certainly appreciates the lack of Scizor lately. I just treat him like a pseudo-scarfer/wall breaker. Is hard to switch in but it can OHKO most things if they are below 75% and with my moveset it doesn't get walled by Ho-Oh, sun or not (Psyshock hurts). Also note how Low Kick fares against Superpower. Low Kick may not do the same against the blobs or Darkrai but it doesn't lower attack so I can still hit hard if allowed to.

    Yeah, I meant Fire Blast (does Dialga learn Focus Blast??). Dragon+Fighting is a good combo that doesn't depend on weather.

    really good job for an ubers warstory, really interesting

    Not amazing, but not terrible. Simply 7/10

    Props for Deoxys-A though :)
