    After the roaring success of my first warstory (actually, no... everybody hated it) I decided to make another. This battle was quite an interesting one, well at least in my opinion. It was almost completely hax-free, but this was spoiled by the fact that I had forgotten to check what rules my opponent had used when he challenged me. No sleep clause (and he had a Breloom) and to complete the picture, Garchomp showed his ugly head (I was on the Official Shoddy Server). So, let's crack on!

    The biggest and worst (sorry, but 'baddest' isn't a word) threats in OU against my team of trusty bugs. Yippee!

    bugmaniacbob sent out Yanmega (lvl 100 Yanmega ?).
    ShiningGengar sent out Gyarados (lvl 100 Gyarados ?).

    I attack here, not wanting to let him get way with a free Dragon Dance. DD Gyarados are terrible for my team if they can get a Dragon Dance or two up.

    I’m surprised. I would have thought that a +1 Gyarados would have crushed my little suicidal dragonfly of doom. I had a sash though, so it didn’t really matter. I think I can get a 3KO on Gyarados, with a little help from Lady Luck.

    I think now would be the time to employ that well known and highly appropriate English phrase known as ‘bugger’. I like it, it has a certain phonetic resemblance to the word ‘bug’. The bad news is, his Gyarados was 3% away from a 3HKO. The good news is, he is now in revenge kill range.

    I was anticipating a switch, though I can’t remember what to. Perhaps he would switch to a Cresselia to sponge a Close Combat? I don’t know why he didn’t switch, although he probably thought I would stick the rocks up sooner or later which would render Gyarados useless (which I would have done, but for a series of unfortunate events which occur later on…).

    A Gengar comes out. I doubt it has HP fire, since they usually carry HP ice, and apart from that, I cannot think of anything that can hurt my Scizor. I am right, although I am still clueless as to what hidden power he carries.

    It could not be more obvious what is coming, but I decide to stick around so that I can see more of Breloom’s moves. I am also unwilling to lose my Dance boost so I attempt to cause some damage to his Breloom with a Bullet Punch. I’m surprised it does over 50%, to be honest.

    Ah. So it is a Sub Breloom. That limits its options as far as attacks are concerned, but it is a fair bet that one is Focus Punch.

    YES! I wake up and restore my health. He can kill me now, but it means forfeiting a sub, meaning that my faster Pokémon that I switch in can smash it to bits. I opt for crushing his sub, since I assume he will Spore me, and switch something else into the Sub.

    It was at this point that I realised my titanic error. His Breloom had a massive advantage in this battle now. Even so, I did my best not to panic and decided to try to stall it out.

    That attack did just over 25% to me, so Breloom will probably only get a 5HKO on me, enough time for me wake up and recover, probably.

    Ah, excellent. I am back to full health, and he has finally got bored and is trying to end this quickly. The bad news is, he has a special attacker out against a physical wall. I could switch Scizor in again, but there’s always a chance he would correctly guess my intentions.

    He hits the hard wall that is my Scizor again. Looking back, he probably thought I would never dream of switching in a sleeping Pokémon, since it would give a stat-up sweeper that golden opportunity to set up on me.

    Couldn’t be helped. Scizor did his duty, warding off Gengar like that. It will probably really make a difference. Well-played Scizor, but you are no longer needed. I unleash my secret weapon, a little earlier than usual, but it is the only real member of my team who has an electric move. Come on Flygon, don’t let me down now!

    Blissey. I can deal a lot of damage with Close Combat, however I am stuck in Night Slash and it is doubtful whether I can KO with a Night Slash from Heracross and an Earthquake from Flygon. I decide to sacrifice Flygon to the inevitable Ice Beam, and we are now equal in number of Pokémon remaining.
    ---
    bugmaniacbob switched in Heracross (lvl 100 Heracross ?).
    Pointed stones dug into Heracross.
    Heracross lost 12% of its health.
    Heracross used Close Combat.
    It's super effective!
    Blissey lost 249% of its health.
    ShiningGengar's Blissey fainted.
    bugmaniacbob wins!

    My Heracross has only 2% of its health left, and with a last burst of energy utterly destroys his Blissey. Good Game, ShiningGengar, and thanks for an amazing battle!

    bugmaniacbob: gg
    ShiningGengar: ....
    ShiningGengar: :)

    Right, now on to the awards:

    DIGS
    • HERACROSS: Claimed 5 victims in the battle. Bravo, ScarfCross!
    • SCIZOR: Warded off ScarfGar twice, though unable to stop Breloom.
    • GLISCOR: Took on Garchomp and Breloom and won, both times.
    • FLYGON: Wore down Skarmory into Hera's KO range.
    • SHININGGENGAR: Gave me a battle to remember.
    SCELS
    • YANMEGA: Failed to 3KO Gyarados.
    • FORRETRESS: A UU Pokemon: Utterly Useless.
    • BRELOOM: God, that thing's a beast with no Sleep Clause. If it hadn't switched out I would have lost (although admittedly it would've run out of Focus Punches eventually...)
    • GARCHOMP: For failing to sweep, even in lategame.
    I hope you enjoyed this. Also, does anyone know how to get rid of [/FONT] tags that is better than manually deleting them for days on end?

    To get rid of the Tag, copy the text into Notepad first. I must admit I quite enjoyed this warstory as it was different. I was again a little dissapointed at some of te comments, in parts they were a little lacklustre, and not so tactically detailed (The more "Theory" and "Tactics" the more I can learn from a warstory) but this was not a bad warstory, and nice variation. Good job :)

    Nice team also :P

    THis was a good one. I thought you would be done after the no sleep clause.

    What kind of Scizor set is that? Even with Leftovers instead of Life Orb, a Max HP/Max Def Impish Breloom should take at least 80% from a Max Attack SD'd Bullet Punch. Did you forget to make it a Technician Scizor or something?

    Everything considered, you did alright. It certainly could have been a lot worse, especially if your opponent had a ScarfTran.

    *cringes at the thought*

    Agreeing with CoTH
    Also I noticed your opponent was not using Yache Chomp. In that case he should have scouted for Ice Fang first. All it would have taken was a switch to one of his other Pokemon.

    Yup, an OK battle, but nothing that pops out that's really special or interesting. Also, you should note that without the crit, you wouldn't have KOed Chomp.

    Phoenix: Oh Blimey, thanks. I never even noticed it wasn't technician, I used to run X-Scissor before Platinum came out...

    Isaac Cruz: ... I dunno how you work that out. Did you forget that his Chomp was on 44% health from the first Ice Fang, or something? If I have two attacks, both doing 56%, neither needs to be a crit for a 2KO.

    Kira: He knew I had Ice Fang, I used it on his Breloom. He was probably a little overconfident that his Chomp's defences would allow him to Swords Dance and 2KO Gliscor. Of course, he really should have Swords Danced when Cross switched out, then proceeding to demolish me. Really, Chomp's defences are almost as overrated as Choice Specs Azelf.

    CoTH: Yeah, I really cannot deal with ScarfTran. I've had to use this team less and less after Chompy's departure, as Shaymins and Heatrans and whatnot rush to fill the void.

    Really, everyone, thanks for not being nasty about this warstory. I know its not exactly 'good', but being given positive comments about my work is a really nice change. Exegi monumentum aere perennius!

    Not bad. It's unfortunate that Flygon was just cannon fodder, though.
