    Preface

    Hi guys. I have a friend who's is a fan of Little Cup. Then, wanting to test his team, he challenged the LC gym leader of the pokémon online server Psykout22 for a Gym Battle. I wasn't there, but then he showed me the log of the match and, boy, it was AWESOME. Close match, great teams, great players and little pokémon. At this moment, LITTLE CUP IS COOL made his coments and I'm going to post it because he still doesn't have an account on the forums. Ok, enjoy!

    LIT
    TLE CUP IS COOL's team
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Psykout22's team will not be showed by particular reasons.

    Coments will be in navy.


    Battle between Psykout22 and LITTLE CUP IS COOL started!

    Tier: LC Wifi
    Rule: Unrated
    Rule: Sleep Clause
    Rule: Freeze Clause
    Rule: Species Clause
    Rule: Self-KO Clause

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Hippopotas!
    Psykout22 sent out Meditite!
    Hippopotas's Sand Stream whipped up a sandstorm!
    Psykout22: good luck
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: same

    [​IMG]100% vs [​IMG]100%

    Ok, he started with Meditite, a powerful pokémon whose attack is bigger than Groudon's (if both are level 5). But my Hippopotas is very sturdy and he'll take no more than 35% from a Drain Punch, Meditite's best attack. For this reason, I'll go with Stealth Rock.


    Start of turn 1
    The foe's Meditite used Ice Punch!
    It's super effective!
    Hippopotas lost 14 HP! (56% of its health)

    Hippopotas used Stealth Rock!
    Pointed stones float in the air around Psykout22's team!

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Meditite is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    Psykout22: 2hitko ftw
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: ice punch eh
    kokoloko is watching the battle.

    [​IMG]44%% vs [​IMG]95%

    Shoot. He has Ice Punch, an uncommon move on Meditite, yet very useful for hitting Gligar and Hippopotas. This caught me off guard, but Hippopotas is still alive and he has Stealth Rock on his field. I have, on my team, a very hard counter for Meditite, namely Slowpoke, which resists Ice Punch/Zen Headbutt/Drain Punch/Bullet Punch, meaning that Meditite can't touch it.


    Start of turn 2
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL called Hippopotas back!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Slowpoke!

    The foe's Meditite used Ice Punch!
    It's not very effective...
    Slowpoke lost 3 HP! (10% of its health)

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Meditite is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    Slowpoke is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    [​IMG]85% vs [​IMG]90%

    All right. If it has Ice Punch, then it doesn't have Thunder Punch. I'll just go for Toxic to cripple anything that he might switch in.


    Start of turn 3
    Psykout22 called Meditite back!
    Psykout22 sent out Dokkora! (Timburr)
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Dokkora!

    Slowpoke used Toxic!
    The foe's Dokkora was poisoned!

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Dokkora is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    Slowpoke is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    The foe's Dokkora is hurt by poison!
    Psykout22: thanks for guts
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: >_>
    Psykout22: much appreciated

    [​IMG]80% vs [​IMG]85% (Badly Poisoned)

    Lol, now that Timburr has Meditite's attack O_O. Anyways, it's faster than Slowpoke, meaning that Payback will do 38% damage max, so I'll just spam Slack Off as it dies to Toxic.

    Start of turn 4
    The foe's Dokkora used Payback!
    It's super effective!
    Slowpoke lost 10 HP! (35% of its health)

    Slowpoke used Slack Off!
    Slowpoke regained health!

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Dokkora is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    Slowpoke is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    The foe's Dokkora is hurt by poison!
    Psykout22: still does crap
    Psykout22: lol
    kokoloko: slowpoke > dokkora
    kokoloko: always
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: slowbro junior is too strongth
    Psykout22: i just wanted to check something

    [​IMG]90% vs [​IMG]69% (Badly Poisoned)

    Yeah, Slowpoke is too sturdy, I know. He's probably going to switch now. I think I'm going to use Toxic. Nah, he might predict that and send something like Ferroseed or Bronzor to take the Toxic, so I'll just Flamethrower and still do damage to whatever he switches into.


    Start of turn 5
    Psykout22 called Dokkora back!
    Psykout22 sent out Misdreavus!
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Misdreavus!

    Slowpoke used Flamethrower!
    The foe's Misdreavus lost 22% of its health!

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Misdreavus is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    Slowpoke is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    [​IMG]85% vs[​IMG]72%

    Misdreavus, eh? Well, Misdreavus horribly rapes Slowpoke, so I'll switch my special wall also known as Lickitung.

    Start of turn 6
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL called Slowpoke back!
    Slowpoke regains health with its Regeneration!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Lickitung!

    Lickitung has Cloud Nine!
    The foe's Misdreavus used Shadow Ball!
    It had no effect!

    The sandstorm rages!

    [​IMG]100% vs[​IMG]72%

    Right, everything as planned. It will probably going to use HP fighting, which will do 30% or it will try to burn me, but I have rest so I don't care. I'll just go for Dragon Tail for some Stealth Rock damage.


    Start of turn 7
    The foe's Misdreavus used Will-O-Wisp!
    The attack of the foe's Misdreavus missed!

    Lickitung used Dragon Tail!
    The foe's Misdreavus lost 18% of its health!
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Meditite!
    The foe's Meditite was dragged out!

    The sandstorm rages!
    Psykout22: fufufu

    [​IMG]100% vs[​IMG]54% -> [​IMG]85%

    Ok, Meditite was brought. Since that thing OHKOes me with Drain Punch, I'll switch into my own Misdreavus, which is faster than Meditite and threatens it with Shadow Ball. And no, I didn't care about that Will-O-Wisp miss.


    Start of turn 8
    Psykout22 called Meditite back!
    Psykout22 sent out Misdreavus!
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Misdreavus!

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL called Lickitung back!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Misdreavus!

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Misdreavus is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    Misdreavus is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    [​IMG](LCIC) 95% vs [​IMG](PK22) 37%

    Oh, he switched, eh? Well, I could just use Shadow Ball to finish it off, but it might be Timid and 240 EVs, just like me, and I don't want to risk losing such a valuable pokémon like Misdreavus for a speed tie. I'll just play safely and bring Lickitung back.


    Start of turn 9
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL called Misdreavus back!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Lickitung!

    Lickitung has Cloud Nine!
    The foe's Misdreavus used Shadow Ball!
    It had no effect!

    The sandstorm rages!

    [​IMG]100% vs[​IMG]37%

    Ok. Time for some Curses. If I can get at least 2 Curses, his guts Timburr won't OHKO me and I'll do some good damage with Dragon Tail. Ok, let's go.


    Start of turn 10
    The foe's Misdreavus used Will-O-Wisp!
    Lickitung was burned!

    Lickitung used Curse!
    Lickitung's Attack rose!
    Lickitung's Defense rose!
    Lickitung's Speed fell!

    The sandstorm rages!
    Lickitung is hurt by its burn!

    [​IMG]88% (Burned) vs[​IMG]37%

    He burned me, but I have Rest, so this isn't going to mess with my plan and I'll just get the 2nd Curse I want.


    Start of turn 11
    The foe's Misdreavus used Hidden Power!
    It's super effective!
    Lickitung lost 8 HP! (28% of its health)

    Lickitung used Curse!
    Lickitung's Attack rose!
    Lickitung's Defense rose!
    Lickitung's Speed fell!

    The sandstorm rages!
    Lickitung is hurt by its burn!
    Psykout22: i see possible rest?!?

    [​IMG]48% (Burned) vs[​IMG]37%

    I was right. HP Fighting would do shitty damage. Now, it won't kill me, so I'll just Rest to heal the burn and start to spam Dragon Tail to slowly chip away his pokés health. And yes, he saw the Rest correctly.

    Start of turn 12
    The foe's Misdreavus used Hidden Power!
    It's super effective!
    Lickitung lost 8 HP! (28% of its health)

    Lickitung used Rest!
    Lickitung went to sleep and became healthy!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: ofc
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: ^^
    kokoloko: they always have it
    Psykout22: a bit weird
    Psykout22: and sleep talk i guess
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: yep
    kokoloko: its an old school sun counter

    [​IMG]100% (Asleep) vs[​IMG]37%

    This Lickitung was made by a great LC player called Elevator Music, which he used to counter sun. Even with sun banned, I still use it because it's very hard to break through and when used with entry hazards, it will be very annoying. Time for some Sleep Talk spam. I just hope I get the right moves.


    Start of turn 13
    The foe's Misdreavus used Hidden Power!
    It's super effective!
    Lickitung lost 8 HP! (28% of its health)

    Lickitung is fast asleep!
    Lickitung used Sleep Talk!
    Lickitung used Dragon Tail!
    The foe's Misdreavus lost 27% of its health!
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Dokkora!
    The foe's Dokkora was dragged out!

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Dokkora is hurt by poison!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: I took this from elevator music
    kokoloko: that EM invented.

    [​IMG]72% (Asleep) vs[​IMG]10% -> [​IMG]56% (Badly Poisoned)
    That Timburr again. However, I have 2 Curses under my belt, meaning that a Drain Punch will do 60% max, and I'll do 30% with Dragon Tail, so I'll just use Sleep Talk again.

    Start of turn 14
    The foe's Dokkora used Drain Punch!
    It's super effective!
    A critical hit!
    Lickitung lost 20 HP! (71% of its health)
    Lickitung fainted!
    Lickitung had its energy drained!

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Dokkora is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL 5 x 6 Psykout22


    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: freak
    Psykout22: didn't think it caught on
    Psykout22: and not sure if that mattered
    kokoloko: but since sun is banned here...
    Psykout22: tbh
    kokoloko: i dont see the point
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: it does 60% without the crit
    Psykout22: yeah
    kokoloko: tung sucks.
    kokoloko: lol
    Psykout22: rest/dd was another of his so called creations
    Psykout22: but i did it first


    Shit. Gotta be kidding. Ok, I lost my main special wall, but his Misdreavus will die as it enters on Stealth Rock again, meaning that Lickitung has done his job, which is, killing Misdreavus. And now, Slowpoke lost its main counter >=D

    [​IMG]100% vs[​IMG]88% (Badly Poisoned)

    Because it would be dumb to leave Timburr on a Slowpoke, I think he's going to switch, so I'll just go for Toxic again to cripple another poké of his.

    Start of turn 15
    Psykout22 called Dokkora back!
    Psykout22 sent out Misdreavus!
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Misdreavus!
    The foe's Misdreavus fainted!

    Slowpoke used Toxic!
    But there was no target...

    The sandstorm rages!
    Slowpoke is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    [​IMG]95% vs [​IMG]0% (Fainted)

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL 5 x 5 Psykout22


    As I said, Misdreavus would die by entering on Stealth Rock again. Now, Slowpoke is free from its number one counter. But I don't think this is over, he has a Scraggy hidden, which can troll Slowpoke with STAB Crunch. But let's see what will happen.

    Psykout22 sent out Broken Face! (Scraggy)
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Broken Face!

    [​IMG]95% vs [​IMG]95%

    I was right, he switched Scraggy in. I could Toxic them, but since 68% of the Scraggy players use Shed Skin, I find better to switch Mienfoo in to take the possible Crunch. If it decides to Dragon Dance, I still outspeed because I'm scarfed. And then, I can Hi Jump Kick his ass out.


    Start of turn 16

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL called Slowpoke back!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Kojofuu! (Mienfoo)

    The foe's Broken Face used Dragon Dance!
    The foe's Broken Face's Attack rose!
    The foe's Broken Face's Speed rose!

    The sandstorm rages!
    Kojofuu is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    The foe's Broken Face is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    [​IMG]95% vs [​IMG]90%

    Oh I see. He used Dragon Dance. Maybe he thinks he'll outspeed and OHKO me, but I'm scarfed, so I'll outspeed and Hi Jump Kick it. Mienfoo is my favourite LC pokémon because it's fast, strong and cute ^^.

    Start of turn 17
    Psykout22 called Broken Face back!
    Psykout22 sent out Gligar!
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Gligar!

    Kojofuu used Hi Jump Kick!
    It's not very effective...
    The foe's Gligar lost 20% of its health!

    The sandstorm rages!
    Kojofuu is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    [​IMG]90% vs [​IMG]68%

    And he switched a Gligar. Maybe he thinks I'm bulky or maybe he thinks I'm scarfed. Anyways, Gligar hits hard and Mienfoo is too important and too cute for me to let it die now, so I'm going to switch Slowpoke, which takes no more than 34% from an Earthquake.


    Start of turn 18
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL called Kojofuu back!
    Kojofuu regains health with its Regeneration!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Slowpoke!

    The foe's Gligar used Earthquake!
    Slowpoke lost 9 HP! (32% of its health)

    The sandstorm rages!
    Slowpoke is buffeted by the sandstorm!kokoloko: anyway, i beat EM in the smogon LC tour
    kokoloko: so w/e
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: really??
    kokoloko: yeah...
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: wow
    Psykout22: i wasn't inthat tour
    Psykout22: =(
    kokoloko: im in the semis
    Psykout22: so ashamed
    Psykout22: is it in the final now
    Psykout22: who is against who
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: lol koko is good
    Psykout22: koko IS good

    [​IMG]64% vs [​IMG]68%

    Right. Sturdypoke is so sturdy that it tanks an Earthquake like a boss. Now let me see. If he uses Earthquake again, I should use Slack Off. If he uses a non-attacking move, I should use Ice Beam. Meh, my money is on an Earthquake, so I'll Slack Off. And, about the conversation, I just praised koko because he beat who was, IMO, the best LC player on Smogon.


    Start of turn 19
    The foe's Gligar used Swords Dance!
    The foe's Gligar's Attack sharply rose!

    Slowpoke used Slack Off!
    Slowpoke regained health!

    The sandstorm rages!
    Slowpoke is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    [​IMG]95% vs [​IMG]68%

    Oh drats. I mispredicted. This didn't matter because Slowpoke is still takes only 64% from a +2 Earthquake and I'll just Ice Beam Gligar to hell. I'm afraid of another critical hit, tough.


    Start of turn 20
    The foe's Gligar used Earthquake!
    A critical hit!
    Slowpoke lost 27 HP! (96% of its health)
    Slowpoke fainted!
    Psykout22: fufufu
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: of course
    Psykout22: sorry
    Psykout22: >_>
    Psykout22: i just wanted proper damage
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: meh

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL 4 x 5 Psykout22


    GOD FREAKING DAMNIT! Not again >_>. Slowbro is a defensive pivot that I certainly wouldn't like to lose, considering he still has Meditite on the bench. Meh, at least I'm going to kill this stupid lucky Gligar with my secret weapon. My cute little fighter with Hidden Powers that are cold as Ice. Hehehe
    .

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Kojofuu! (Mienfoo)

    [​IMG]100% vs [​IMG]68%

    Ok, time for you to pay. Hidden Power Ice, with my crazy spread, should do a 70% minimun to an Evolution Stone offensive Gligar, and, since I outspeed, I'll just kill him off.

    Start of turn 21
    Kojofuu used Hidden Power!
    It's super effective!
    A critical hit!
    Psykout22: lol
    The foe's Gligar lost 68% of its health!

    Hehe. Don't mess with Hidden Powarz Btw, that crit didn't matter. Mienfoo is my favourite LC poké for this reason: he totally rocks!

    Psykout22 sent out Carvanha!
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Carvanha!

    Psykout22: go carvanha!


    Psykout22 sent out Carvanha!
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Carvanha!

    [​IMG]95% vs [​IMG]89%

    He finally showed his final pokémon, which is, Carvanha. Ferroseed just walls the hell and back outta Carvanha, unless if it has HP fire, which doesn't OHKO anyways. For this reason, I'm switching to Ferroseed and Bullet Seed it.

    Start of turn 22
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL called Kojofuu back!
    Kojofuu regains health with its Regeneration!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Nattorei! (Ferroseed)

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: I bet it has HP fire too but k
    kokoloko: it still would only do 52%

    [​IMG]83% vs [​IMG]84%

    I'd just Leech Seed the switch-in, but, afraid of a Hidden Power Fire, I will Bullet Seed to kill it or, at least, hit the switch-in for some damage.

    [​IMG]83% vs [​IMG]18% (Badly Poisoned)

    Hehehe, it hit 5 times, that was kinda haxy for me, but it helped A LOT. Now, let me see. I'll go for Protect to wase a turn and kill it or, at least, leave it with 1 HP.


    Start of turn 24
    Nattorei used Protect!

    [​IMG]83% vs [​IMG]3% (Badly Poisoned)

    Lol, damnit, it survived with 3%, meaning 1 HP on most LC pokémon. He used Payback, huh. Mhm, prediction time. Let's think a bit. If I click Spikes, I'll get a free layer of Spikes, considering he uses Payback. However, if he uses Drain Punch, then Ferroseed is dead and he's going to heal itself. I need to switch into My own Misdreavus in Drain Punch's case. Gah, I'm more afraid of Drain Punch. I'll go for Misdreavus.


    Start of turn 25

    YES! I predicted right. I got a free switch-in for my most dangerous pokémon and he lost one of his powerhouses.

    Psykout22: i'm not looking too good now
    Psykout22: you're breaking me apart
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: '-'

    Psykout22 sent out Broken Face! (Scraggy)

    [​IMG]90% vs [​IMG]85%

    That brokemon again >.<. Mhm. I'd switch Mienfoo, but a Drain Punch would crack him, so, I find best to sacrifice Hippopotas, who has done his job, and get a free switch-in for my little fighter.


    Start of turn 26

    Meh, I should have switched Mienfoo in, but now it's too late. I'll just let Hippopotas die and get a free switch-in. I'll just try to Roar, because it might try to use a Dragon Dance.


    Start of turn 27

    IMA FIRING MAH POWAHFUL KICKS FROM HIGH!! However, there's a 100% chance that he'll switch Meditite now to tank the Hi Jump Kick.

    Start of turn 28
    Psykout22 called Broken Face back!
    Psykout22 sent out Meditite!
    Pointed stones dug into the foe's Meditite!

    Kojofuu used Hi Jump Kick!
    It's not very effective...
    The foe's Meditite lost 36% of its health!

    The sandstorm rages!
    Kojofuu is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    The foe's Meditite is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    [​IMG]95% vs [​IMG]52%

    Meh, this was obvious. I'll switch to Ferroseed to tank the Zen Headbutt now.


    Start of turn 29
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL called Kojofuu back!
    Kojofuu regains health with its Regeneration!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Nattorei! (Ferroseed)

    The foe's Meditite used Zen Headbutt!
    It's not very effective...
    Nattorei lost 5 HP! (21% of its health)
    Nattorei's Iron Barbs hurts the foe's Meditite

    [​IMG]62% vs [​IMG]35%

    Ugh, more prediction time. He can Drain Punch to kill Ferroseed or predict a switch to missy and Zen Headbutt. Now, let me see the risks: if I switch Misdreavus on a Zen Headbutt, she'll be killed by Bullet Punch after, and then, Meditite will rape my team. On the other hand, if I let Ferroseed and it uses Drain Punch, he'll heal itself. However, even if he heals itself, I can revenge it with Misdreavus.


    Start of turn 30
    The foe's Meditite used Drain Punch!
    It's super effective!
    Nattorei lost 14 HP! (60% of its health)
    Nattorei fainted!
    Nattorei had its energy drained!
    Nattorei's Iron Barbs hurts the foe's Meditite

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Meditite is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    [​IMG]0% (Fainted) vs [​IMG]45%

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL 2 x 3 Psykout22


    Meh, I mispredicted. At least, Misdreavus will own him now.

    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Misdreavus!
    [​IMG]90% vs [​IMG]45%

    Mhm, let me see. He'll probably send Scraggy now. For this reason, I think I'll go with HP fighting now. Even if he stays, my Misdreavus has a specific EV investment, and it will be able to take a Zen Headbutt and a Bullet Punch (and I fucking forgot it and lost Ferroseed for nothing).


    Start of turn 31
    Misdreavus used Hidden Power!
    It's not very effective...
    The foe's Meditite lost 9% of its health!

    The foe's Meditite used Zen Headbutt!
    Misdreavus lost 13 HP! (56% of its health)

    The sandstorm rages!
    Misdreavus is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    The foe's Meditite is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: frick
    Psykout22: pro!
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: learn to switch
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: ;_;
    Psykout22: lol
    Psykout22: i learn to predict
    kokoloko: learn no predict predictions
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: xD
    kokoloko: lol

    [​IMG]30% vs [​IMG]30%

    Meh, I was outproed again, but, at least, Misdreavus will take 24-28% according to the calcs, meaning that I can kill it with Shadow Ball. Isn't Missy awesome? Ok, let's go!


    Start of turn 32
    The foe's Meditite used Bullet Punch!
    A critical hit!
    Misdreavus lost 7 HP! (30% of its health)
    Misdreavus fainted!

    The sandstorm rages!
    The foe's Meditite is buffeted by the sandstorm!

    Psykout22: sorry =/
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: ffs
    kokoloko: btw psykout you might have just lost.
    Psykout22: yeah i might've
    LITTLE CUP IS COOL: so I still might win this

    [​IMG]0% (Fainted) vs [​IMG]26%


    LITTLE CUP IS COOL 1 x 3 Psykout22



    Hell no. That's the 3rd poké I lost due to Critical Shits.. I mean Hits. But I might win. Altough I'm with only 1 pokémon and Psykout22 with 3, he has a Weakened Meditite, a Scraggy, and a Carvanha. Those 3 will fall to Mienfoo's amazing kicking ability. GO MIENFOO I'M RELYING ON YOU!


    LITTLE CUP IS COOL sent out Kojofuu! (Mienfoo)

    Start of turn 35

    I'M GOING TO...








    The foe's Carvanha used Protect!

    I must say, amazing match on both players part. Only thing that pervents me from rating 10/10 is Turn 30. You had Protect as an option to scout Meditite's actions, do SS damage, and potentially scare your opponent into Zen Headbutting, for you knew it was using drain punch.

    8/10, it could have a little more in-depth thinking (Not too horrid, though). Makes me want to perfect my LC Team and start playing again.

    Unlike all the others, I'm a pretty big fan of Little Cup =) Grats on getting that close on Psykout too, didn't even think that was possible unless you're koko

    This battle wasn't wothy of a Warstory to be honest... Psykout had been out of the metagame for a while, which was pretty obvious to due to him not expecting Rest on Lickitung.

    Btw, there's a reason for me sounding retarded at the end. I played against LCIS yesterday and he was running a LO Kojofuu, and I didn't realize he had changed it cause I wasn't paying that much attention, lol. Because of this, I figured the best way for Psykout to win was to set up Zuruggu on Misdreavus... hence my "I think you might've just lost" at Psykout.

    EDIT: Also, lol, I feel the need to clarify this: "kokoloko: anyway, i beat EM in the smogon LC tour" ... I was going to make a point about that Lickitung set, since that match was the first time ever saw it used, but I forgot to finish what I was going to say.

    Bah... you shroud edit out all the stupid shit I said, I was at work & barely paying attention to that game, lol.

    I need to destroy psykout one of these days, it's been far too long...

    Good battle, edit the comments out next time though.

    The crit on lickitung did not matter. Staying in on dokkora/timburr was really stupid anyways, as he only had a 1/3 shot of a favorable outcome.

    I didn't really like some of the predictions that were made, but that's just playstyle. It surprises me that PO doesn't use wifi clause though.

    Lastly, get your friend to make an account on these forums! We need more LC players here!

    Overall, well written, ok battle (though I saw the ending from a mile away, I can appreciate it anyways), good opponent, 7.5/10.

    Crux doesn't get the credit he deserves
    When I was writing Lickitung I wanted to call it Cruxtoungue just so people would stop thinking EM made the set, Crux thought of the name ;D

    That quote make me wonder, since psykout's team of vahna, zuruggu, meditite, misdreavus, dokkora, and gligar has literally nothing hit harder by flamethrower than surf/boiling water. I was fairly certain you did, but that play made no sense otherwise.

    Ok while I'm usually not a fan of attempted suspense endings that Protect did catch me by surprise. I should really play more.

    "Good"? "Good"?!?!

    C'mon, dude, this is an epic warstory. 9.5/10

    Half-point off because EVERY Carvahna I've seen or used runs Protect.

    If it wasn't for the mispredict at the end with Carvahna, I'd give you a 9.5/10. Most Carvahna run Protect to evade HJK from Meditite/Mienfoo, don't they? If it wasn't for those critical hits (yours made no difference) I think you may have won! 9/10. ^_^

    It was choiced, it could not change moves.

    Anyway, there are some faults to this, like three pokemon lost to critical hits and leaving Lickitung on Timburr, but it was overall a good battle with nice playing on both sides, good format (commentary a bit distracting) and pictures, with a nice twisty ending.

    I was kinda disappointed in the ending, as once your last poke was Mienfoo, it was gg, as Scraggy could own you unless you used HJK, and we all know what a Protect spammer Vanha is. Good game anyway, lots of crits :)

    8/10
