    "Here he is, folks!! The Arcanine-suited guy steps up to the White corner with confidence!! Can you feel the passion for battle and bloodshed burning?"

    "This looks interesting!! Hwang has chosen to play it safe with the standard Fire-Water-Grass core! Can the more experienced jas handle that kind of synergy?

    Can't afford to have a huge type disadvantage, so lets start with Guardian the Sentret.

    We don't have much in the way of status against an Oddish, so lets come right out and attack.

    Hyper Voice - Shadow Ball - Hyper Voice
    If Oddish uses Sleep Powder, Protect yourself against it, but only once.

    Hey, I just noticed, but I believe your Oddish should actually have 4 SpD (it has base 3, and yours is +SpD). Just thought I would point that out to you for future reference (and so King Serperior knows for reffing.

    Oops, both Oddish and Growlithe are like that. I put the (+) and the (-) next the appropriate stats, but then I forgot to actually subtract and add a point.

    Crit Chance: 675/1000 (No)

    Totals:
    Oddish - (-11HP) & (-22 Energy)
    Sentret - (-21HP) & (-12 Energy)


    The match starts off with the little weedy-looking plant fireing lasers from its eyes!! Sentret sees it coming and tries to dodge!! Sadly, the little weed saw this coming and hit the squirrel directly, Draining its energy using Mega force!! This makes the little Squirrel angry and it raises its Voice to Hyper levels!!

    "AH!! My Glasses!! jas, you are going to pay for the repairs!!"

    Anyway, it seems like the illegal-drug Pokemon freaked out about the sound too, because it released a cloud of Spores. Sentret inhaled these spores and was Stunned by the High-feeling of them. It was so stunned that it's limbs locked up and became Fully Paralyzed!!

    "Cough, Cough, HACK!! Looks like I inhaled them too!! I'll sue you two!! Just let me talk to my Unicorn!"

    The final act of this round is a repeat of lasor and noise. *sigh* such a pity....

    Alright, that went better than expected. Let's switch up our strategy a bit.

    Toxic - Mega Drain - Sunny Day

    If Protect A1, use Sunny Day and push actions back.

    Yeah, sorry about that KS. I completely forgot to check for you on IRC.

    There are a few things I noticed in the reffing that may be off. Specifically, in the damage calcs, I'm not sure where all the numbers came from, as action 1 and action 3 have different numbers in the calcs, despite being the same. It should be (SpA - SpD)*1.5, for the stat part of the damage, which would mean the Mega Drains only did 10.5 each and the Hyper Voices only 9 each. (So a net 21 to Sentret and 11 to Oddish, if I added in the drain correctly). Also, I believe paralysis decays to 20% since the round ended. Otherwise though it looks fine.

    Since those changes are minor though, and just put me farther behind, I'm just going to assume it is fine for me to go ahead and order.

    Anyways, this is not good. We need to just keep on attacking. We don't have much against this thing.

    Looks pretty good to me. Well, actually, it looks god awful to me. But that is the fault of random.org, not you.

    Man, I literally have nothing against an Oddish. This makes me want to train my own Oddish more. Well, we best just keep attacking.

    Not that it currently matters, but Oddish has Chlorophyll and its Speed should be doubled because of Sunny Day.

    Okay, I feel REALLY bad for the hax now. Sorry.

    Keep it up Natura, although you're running a bit low on Energy. Let's conserve your energy.

    Alright, I'm confident that you can win this battle, Natura. But you're still kind of low on energy.
