    Another warstory this time against Lou Chyper, and although it isn't as exciting in terms of numbers (pokes left). There are good predictions being made. Also lefties and sandstorm aren't omitted, but are not bolded either as the rest of the battle is.

    This were our teams, only the lead is in order:

    Rules: Ladder Match, Sleep Clause, Freeze Clause, OHKO Clause, Evasion Clause, Species Clause, Strict Damage Clause

    Lou Cypher sent out Sanaito (lvl 100 Gardevoir ?).
    milotic111 sent out Chameleon (lvl 100 Kecleon ?).
    Sanaito traced Chameleon's Color Change!
    Chameleon used Magic Coat.
    Chameleon created a barrier!
    Sanaito used Hypnosis.
    Sanaito fell asleep!---

    Lou Cypher: ......That was slightly unexpected
    milotic111: hi
    milotic111: I have seen you around smogon right?
    Lou Cypher: Quite possibly

    Chameleon is tightening its focus!
    Lou Cypher switched in Snippy Snippy, Now youre Eunuchy (lvl 100 Scizor ?).
    Chameleon used Focus Punch.
    A critical hit!
    Snippy Snippy, Now youre Eunuchy lost 100% of its health.
    Lou Cypher's Snippy Snippy, Now youre Eunuchy fainted.---

    6-5 for me

    I got a bit lucky here, but I doubt he would have done much damage. If it was a batton-passer/stat-upper it would have eaten a focus-punch, and if it attacked I would have switched to a good counter.

    Lou Cypher switched in Freak O' Nature (lvl 100 Machamp ?).
    milotic111 switched in Hermitcrab (lvl 100 Slowbro ?).
    Freak O' Nature used Dynamicpunch.
    It's not very effective...
    Hermitcrab lost 20% of its health.
    Freak O' Nature lost 10% of its health.
    Hermitcrab's leftovers restored its health a little!
    Hermitcrab restored 6% of its health.


    Obvious switch to slowbro, machamp can't hurt him.

    A sandstorm brewed!

    I was expecting a criticalhit from stone-edge, so I recovered. I should have just surfed. But it is obvious that he is not going to attack, he expects me to switch, wich I am not going to do. (same applies for infernape/random dragon who caries a fire-move to counter skarm against scizor, soooo obvious he is plotting/SD-ing/sub-ing/dd-ing on the switch.

    Lou Cypher: Crap....If it wasn't for that weird way of stopping Gardevoir, I could've stopped that thing ever so easy

    I could of course eliminate it now, but this is a great chance to get one-other cm in. Just hope it won't wake up.

    milotic111: should had seen that
    Lou Cypher: Yeah, with his lucky CH on FPunch to boot
    Lou Cypher: That was so sick
    milotic111: sorry for that

    As I said, I should have seen that coming from a mile away. Heatran is weak to water and I used surf. Of course it is going to boom. Should have used slack-off.

    Substitute on garchomp..... I bet it's going to swordsdance, what a wonderful oppertunity to get some attack boost.

    Chameleon used Snatch.
    Chameleon waits for a target to make a move!

    Lou Cypher: ....You got to be kidding me
    milotic111: I would have participated, if not for my exams
    milotic111: no I am not
    milotic111: why would I switch it in otherwise?
    Lou Cypher: I never knew that thing could be so...annoying

    And now he's going to attack, seeing that I have a boost and he can't boost. AND he knows I have focus-punch. Too bad that kecleon is good at taking hits.

    Chameleon used Sucker Punch.
    The substitute took damage for Haxy *****!
    Haxy *****'s substitute faded!
    Haxy ***** used Dragon Claw.
    Chameleon lost 53% of its health.
    Chameleon became the Dragon type!

    Chameleon restored 6% of its health.

    I think he's going to use substitute or swordsdance. He doesn't know if sucker-punch KO's if he attacks, and I don't think he wants to take the risk. I am hoping for a sub though.

    Phew, that paid off. Well it wasn't too bad if he attacked. Gastrodon would have frozen him.

    milotic111: thanx for the sub
    Lou Cypher: .........kyaaaaah

    Now that I have a sub, I can focus-punch freely, it doesn't matter what he does.

    The crit was overkill and completely unnessesarry, after all I had a sd boost.

    Lou Cypher: And yknow
    milotic111: ?
    Lou Cypher: Why dont you just KEEP CH'ing to add insult to injury

    Lou Cypher switched in Blood Red Sandman (lvl 100 Tyranitar ?).
    Blood Red Sandman's Sand Stream whipped up a sandstorm!

    milotic111: wouldn't have mattered
    milotic111: I had a swordsdance
    Lou Cypher: Adds insult to injury

    Tyranitar, seeing as how I murdered garchomp I am thinking he'll finish me at once. So I decide to do as much damage as possible by using sucker-punch. I was very close to use snatch however, and I should have taken the risk. If kecleon died due to an attack I could get sceptile in to kill with leafstorm. And if Ttar did something else, kecleon would have benefited.

    Chameleon used Sucker Punch.
    But it failed!
    Blood Red Sandman used Substitute.

    Lou Cypher: Heh
    milotic111: I thought you woudn't fall for that again

    Chameleon is tightening its focus!
    Blood Red Sandman used Ice Beam.
    It's super effective!
    Chameleon lost 22% of its health.
    milotic111's Chameleon fainted.
    Chameleon became the Ice type!
    The sandstorm rages.
    Blood Red Sandman's leftovers restored its health a little!
    Blood Red Sandman restored 6% of its health.

    4-1 for me

    And so kecleon faints, but this is boa and not a dancer. If it lacks a fire-move scizor will survive the focuspunch (max hp takes a lot. Survives from brelom) and the pity sp.att afterwards. If it has a fire-move slowbro breaks his sub to make way for sceptile.
    ---
    milotic111 switched in Mantis (lvl 100 Scizor ?).
    Blood Red Sandman is tightening its focus!
    Mantis used X-Scissor.
    It's super effective!
    The substitute took damage for Blood Red Sandman!
    Blood Red Sandman's substitute faded!

    Mantis lost 47% of its health.
    The sandstorm rages.
    Blood Red Sandman's leftovers restored its health a little!
    Blood Red Sandman restored 6% of its health.

    See, focus-punch doesn't do much. And it doesn't have a fire-move. Now to take the icebeam/dark-pulse and finish with ironhead.
    ---
    Mantis used Iron Head.
    It's super effective!
    Blood Red Sandman lost 75% of its health.
    Lou Cypher's Blood Red Sandman fainted.
    milotic111 wins!

    ?!?!?! I was faster...... weird. Well woudn't have mattered much anyway.

    milotic111: gg
    Lou Cypher: Gratz. That Kecleon is awesome
    milotic111: thanx
    milotic111: It's rare for him to shine
    Lou Cypher: Do you use it for a while already?
    milotic111: yes
    milotic111: once every four battles it does really well
    milotic111: and 2 out of four it dies at once
    Lou Cypher: A Kecleon killing a Garchomp and a Scizor, while disabling my Super Surprise Gardevoir
    milotic111: you would never have beleived it if you hadn't saw it
    Lou Cypher: Prolly not


    Time for pro's and cons.

    Pros:
    Kecleon for killing garchomp and scizor, and sleeping yet another sleep-lead.
    Sceptile for being a reliable pokemon to fall back on if things didn't went as they went.
    Slowbro for walling Machamp.
    Lou Chyper for a great match

    Cons:
    Not seeing that heatran would explode
    Not taking the risk against tar.
    Crit hax on his scizor.
    Being a 4-0 match.

    Please leave comments, I would like to know what people think of this.

    hey i think you inadvertently revealed lou cypher's st4 team ©_©

    How was it obvious that he was not going to attack? You were basically banking on Tyranitar to be Boah, only one of Tyranitar's four viable sets, since CBTar beats Slowbro handily and I think the other two sets (Life Orb DDTar/MixTar) still 2HKO with Crunch and sandstorm damage.

    As for the "obvious" stat-up on the switch, it really depends on the player.

    Not specifally boah. For a DD-set I should have stayed in aswell (DD or sub on the switch is not good). And if people switch in pokemon that are obviously capable of killing/hurting my current one AND capable of setting up. Than they will set up on the switch for 90% of the time. At least that is my experience, I don't know if the same aplies to you.

    Heh, I remember that Kecleon, I put that on the creative movesets things a long time ago though! I'm glad at least someone has seen good use out of it though. Predictleon is the winner!

    Imo, kecleon is one of the most underrated pokemon ever, especially with that set.

    That was... actually really cool!

    Most likely because Keckleon is slow as shit but still managed to have snatch override the SD and Sub.

    Now everyone will start to use Kecleon to deal with Garchomp! He isn't broken anymore! [/laughs]

    Loved how kecleon and your prediction skills destroyed that Garchomp.

    This is one of the coolest battles I've seen! I always liked the idea between Magic Coat and Snatch, but there're few Pokémon that can use it effectively =(
    Anyways, congrats on the Keckleon!
