    My team: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG].
    My opponents team: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG].

    This is a warstory and RMT in one. I thought it would be a good idea to show my team in a battle instead of explainations without bringing it into practice. I was laddering on the UU ladder from Shoddy Battle with my new offensive UU team. Two supporters, four sweepers. I had a battle with JohnMcPain. This was the first battle of my new team. All my commentary is red. Score will be presented after every KO (Aquamilotic-JohnMcPain). Genders and nicknames are not shown. Everytime if I send out a Pokemon for the first time in this battle, the moveset will be shown.

    JohnMcPain sent out Electrode (lvl 100 Electrode).
    Aquamilotic sent out Jumpluff (lvl 100 Jumpluff ).


    He sends out Electrode. I expect a Taunt-Rain Dance Electrode. I hope he uses Rain Dance so I could put Electrode to sleep with Sleep Powder. My Jumpluff:
    Jumpluff@Big Root
    Jolly, 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 6 SDef
    - Sleep Powder
    - Substitute
    - Leech Seed
    - Aerial Ace
    It has Aerial Ace because the defensive EVs and Encore from the Smogon analysis don’t help that much. I’d rather 2-3HKO Roserade than having some almost useless defensive EVs.

    Electrode used Taunt.
    Jumpluff fell for the taunt!
    Jumpluff used Sleep Powder.
    Jumpluff can't use Sleep Powder after the taunt!

    He uses taunt. Jumpluff is screwed. I switch to my Mesprit.
    Mesprit@Choice Band
    Jolly, 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 6 HP
    - Thunderpunch
    - Ice Punch
    - Zen Headbutt
    - Trick
    Much like Azelf in OU, but this has a surprise factor.

    Aquamilotic switched in Mesprit (lvl 100 Mesprit).
    Electrode used Rain Dance.
    Rain began to fall!
    The rain continues to fall.

    Let’s trick Electrode.

    Electrode used Explosion.
    Mesprit lost 100% of its health.
    Aquamilotic's Mesprit fainted.
    JohnMcPain's Electrode fainted.
    The rain continues to fall.
    (5-5)

    Mesprit dies. Electrode has done its job. There is rain. Let’s switch back to Jumpluff. If it has Rain Dish, I can put it to sleep. If it has Swift Swim, Jumpluff is dead. A risky choice. I decided to do it.

    JohnMcPain switched in Ludicolo (lvl 100 Ludicolo).
    Aquamilotic switched in Jumpluff (lvl 100 Jumpluff).
    Jumpluff used Sleep Powder.
    Ludicolo fell asleep!
    Ludicolo is fast asleep!
    The rain continues to fall.
    Ludicolo's Rain Dish restored its health a little!

    I am lucky and Ludicolo sleeps. I am going to make a sub.

    JohnMcPain switched in Floatzel (lvl 100 Floatzel).
    Jumpluff used Substitute.
    Jumpluff lost 25% of its health.
    Jumpluff made a substitute!
    The rain continues to fall.

    Floatzel is a major threat to Jumpluff, being faster and having Ice Punch. I made a sub on the switch. I can use Leech Seed now.

    Floatzel used Ice Punch.
    It's super effective!
    The substitute took damage for Jumpluff!
    Jumpluff's substitute faded!
    Jumpluff used Leech Seed.
    Floatzel was seeded!
    The rain stopped.
    Floatzel's health was sapped by leech seed!
    Floatzel lost 12% of its health.
    Jumpluff regained health!
    Jumpluff restored 15% of its health.

    Floatzel lost his precious Rain and is seeded. Jumpluff is faster now. I’ll make another Sub, I have the health for it. I can annoy for one extra turn.

    Jumpluff used Substitute.
    Jumpluff lost 25% of its health.
    Jumpluff made a substitute!
    Floatzel used Ice Punch.
    It's super effective!
    The substitute took damage for Jumpluff!
    Jumpluff's substitute faded!
    Floatzel's health was sapped by leech seed!
    Floatzel lost 12% of its health.
    Jumpluff regained health!
    Jumpluff restored 15% of its health.

    This went good. Let’s try again.

    JohnMcPain switched in Uxie (lvl 100 Uxie).
    Jumpluff used Substitute.
    Jumpluff lost 25% of its health.
    Jumpluff made a substitute!

    Uxie. I can try to use Leech Seed, but I misclicked.

    JohnMcPain: i thought i gave ludicolo swift swim though.. woops
    JohnMcPain: this team took a major hit with the loss of crobat :(

    Jumpluff used Sleep Powder.
    But it failed!
    Uxie used Stealth Rock.
    Pointed stones float in the air around the foe's team!

    That sucks. Rocks and a wasted turn. Now I understand why Jumpluff was able to outspeed Ludicolo. I’ll try Leech Seed again.

    Jumpluff used Leech Seed.
    Jumpluff's attack missed!
    Uxie used Rain Dance.
    Rain began to fall!
    The rain continues to fall.

    Rain, again. And still no Leech Seed. I know Jumpluff is going to die soon. I didn’t expect Leech Seed to hit, so I used Aerial Ace to do at least something.

    Jumpluff used Aerial Ace.
    Uxie lost 18% of its health.
    Uxie used U-turn.
    The substitute took damage for Jumpluff!
    Jumpluff's substitute faded!
    JohnMcPain switched in Floatzel (lvl 100 Floatzel).
    The rain continues to fall.

    I sacrificed Jumpluff.

    Floatzel used Ice Punch.
    It's super effective!
    Jumpluff lost 45% of its health.
    Aquamilotic's Jumpluff fainted.
    Floatzel lost 10% of its health.
    The rain continues to fall.
    Aquamilotic switched in Milotic (lvl 100 Milotic).
    Pointed stones dug into Milotic.
    Milotic lost 12% of its health.
    (4-5)

    Milotic@Choice Scarf
    Timid, 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 6 HP
    - Hydro Pump
    - Ice Beam
    - Dragon Pulse
    - Hidden Power Grass
    Milotic is my favourite Pokemon. This is a very nice revenge killer. People don’t expect it to be a revenge killer. I also use this in OU. It is nice for my very stallish team. When a team is very defensive, people don’t expect Milotic, who’s usually defensive, to be that fast and hit that hard. I even use this in Uber, but in Uber it has a Modest nature and HP Electric instead of HP Grass. I know I am slower due to Swift Swim. I used HP Grass to kill Floatzel.

    Floatzel used Crunch.
    Milotic lost 45% of its health.
    Milotic's defence was lowered.
    Floatzel lost 10% of its health.
    Milotic used Hidden Power.
    It's super effective!
    A critical hit!
    Floatzel lost 43% of its health.
    JohnMcPain's Floatzel fainted.
    The rain continues to fall.
    (4-4)

    Floatzel dies and I am locked into HP Grass. My opponent still doesn’t know Milotic has a Scarf and sends out Gorebyss. Luckily, Scarf Milotic is faster than Gorebyss in rain, due to Gorebyss abysmal speed.

    JohnMcPain switched in Gorebyss (lvl 100 Gorebyss).
    Milotic used Hidden Power.
    It's super effective!
    Gorebyss lost 76% of its health.
    Gorebyss used Hidden Power.
    It's super effective!
    Milotic lost 42% of its health.
    Aquamilotic's Milotic fainted.
    Gorebyss lost 10% of its health.
    The rain continues to fall.
    Aquamilotic switched in Roserade (lvl 100 Roserade).
    Pointed stones dug into Roserade.
    Roserade lost 12% of its health.
    (3-4)

    Roserade@Choice Specs
    Timid, 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 6 HP
    - Energy Ball
    - Sludge Bomb
    - Hidden Power Fire
    - Shadow Ball
    I don’t know Gorebyss’ moveset. I know it has a LO and has HP Grass OR HP Electric. I try to kill it with Energy Ball.

    Gorebyss used Psychic.
    It's super effective!
    Roserade lost 88% of its health.
    Aquamilotic's Roserade fainted.
    Gorebyss lost 10% of its health.
    The rain continues to fall.
    Aquamilotic switched in Claydol (lvl 100 Claydol).
    Pointed stones dug into Claydol.
    Claydol lost 6% of its health.
    (2-4)

    Claydol@Light Clay
    Calm, 252 HP, 243 Def, 15 SDef
    - Rapid Spin
    - Light Screen
    - Reflect
    - Stealth Rock
    This looks like a bad choice, but I want to Spin those annoying rocks away for Altaria. I want Altaria to sweep. Gorebyss will kill itself, since Gorebyss has a Life Orb and has 4% of its health left. I don’t know if Gorebyss will OHKO or 2HKO Claydol. I take the risk and use Rapid Spin.

    Gorebyss used Waterfall.
    It's super effective!
    Claydol lost 81% of its health.
    Gorebyss lost 4% of its health.
    JohnMcPain's Gorebyss fainted.
    Claydol used Rapid Spin.
    But there was no target!
    The rain continues to fall.
    JohnMcPain switched in Uxie (lvl 100 Uxie).
    (2-3)

    Claydol is still alive. The rocks are gone, but JohnMcPain still has Uxie….
    I’ll set up Light Screen if Uxie doesn’t kill Claydol.

    Uxie used U-turn.
    It's super effective!
    Claydol lost 13% of its health.
    Aquamilotic's Claydol fainted.
    JohnMcPain switched in Ludicolo (lvl 100 Ludicolo).
    Ludicolo's Rain Dish restored its health a little!
    The rain stopped.
    Aquamilotic switched in Altaria (lvl 100 Altaria).
    (1-3)

    Altaria@Life Orb
    Adamant, 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 6 HP
    - Dragon Dance
    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Heal Bell
    It has Heal Bell since lots of Pokemon like to burn or paralyze Altaria. With Heal Bell, it is not a big deal if they do. It doesn’t look good for me now. I know I am going to lose. I’ll try to use Dragon Dance. I remember Ludicolo sleeps since Jumpluff used Sleep Powder on it at the beginning of the match.

    JohnMcPain switched in Chansey (lvl 100 Chansey).
    Altaria used Dragon Dance.
    Altaria's attack was raised.
    Altaria's speed was raised.

    A free turn to set up. I still have a chance. I use DD again. Chansey is a setup fodder, especially with Heal Bell.

    Altaria used Dragon Dance.
    Altaria's attack was raised.
    Altaria's speed was raised.
    Chansey used Thunder Wave.
    Altaria is paralysed! It may be unable to move!

    I expected TWave. Heal Bell!

    Chansey used Rain Dance.
    Rain began to fall!
    Altaria used Heal Bell.
    The rain continues to fall.

    I have 2 DDs now and I still have a chance to win. Altaria will outspeed every Pokemon JohnMcPain has (including Ludicolo in Rain) and is able to OHKO them all. I use Outrage and I am praying to Arceus for a 3-turn-Outrage, then my win is ensured, if it is going to be a 2-turn-outrage, I’ll be confused and I probably will lose in that case. Anyways, it is my only chance

    JohnMcPain switched in Ludicolo (lvl 100 Ludicolo).
    Altaria used Outrage.
    Altaria went on a rampage!
    Ludicolo lost 100% of its health.
    JohnMcPain's Ludicolo fainted.
    The rain continues to fall.
    JohnMcPain switched in Uxie (lvl 100 Uxie).
    (1-2)

    Ludicolo is dead. I am ensured to kill Uxie after two DDs. I have to get a 3-turn-Outrage.

    Altaria used Outrage.
    Uxie lost 82% of its health.
    JohnMcPain's Uxie fainted.
    The rain continues to fall.
    (1-1)

    No confusion! I have won this now!

    JohnMcPain switched in Chansey (lvl 100 Chansey).
    Altaria used Outrage.
    Chansey lost 100% of its health.
    JohnMcPain's Chansey fainted.
    Aquamilotic wins!
    (1-0)

    I was right about my win. It was very close. It was a great battle, and is worthy of a warstory.

    It was a great battle. Moral of the story:
    -Watch out for getting swept by DD Altaria.
    -Heal Bell is very good on a sweeper. This means Altaria is a viable choice over Salamence, Dragonite and Kingdra in OU, because of Heal Bell.

    PROPS
    - Jumpluff, for annoying the hell out of Floatzel and putting Ludicolo to sleep.
    - Milotic, for killing Floatzel and severely damaging Gorebyss.
    - Altaria, for winning the game with DD and Heal Bell.
    - JohnMcPain, for being a great opponent, allowing me to make a warstory.

    SLOPS
    - Roserade, Claydol and Mesprit, for doing nothing.
    - My misclick in the beginning, when Jumpluff and Uxie were battling.

    Thank you for reading my warstoryy. Please give comments and please give me suggestions for my team. After all, this is mainly a warstory, but it also is a RMT.

    There isn't enough commentary, the colors are sortof hideous, and the pictures at the top didn't come out right.
