    Yes, I finally decide to post a warstory, and this one's quite worthy IMO, despite some stupid moves I made lol.

    As Jibaku has posted in his/her first warstory, there is a tournament hosted by 0ma on SPPF, and I am in that tournament. This is a 2nd round winner's bracket battle, and it was me vs. Slicing Scizor.

    Also, blah blah numbers not 100% accurate.

    Match Rules:
    Single Battle, Lv. 100
    Sleep Clause
    Species Clause
    Evasion Clause

    Slicing_Scizor's Team:
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Eh.

    My Team:
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    argh guys don't pressure me it's not finished


    And the battle began.


    I led with my intimadating Gyarados, while the foe led with his Swampert. The massive mudskipper reeled back at the fearsome sight.

    SS withdrew Swampert!
    SS sent out Jolteon!
    Gyarados used Waterfall!
    (75% damage)
    Jolteon's Leftovers restored its HP a little!

    I expected him to switch for some weird reason. Maybe I should've DD'd.

    I withdraw Gyarados!
    I send out Electivire!
    Jolteon used Substitute!
    Jolteon's Leftovers restored HP a little!

    Blast. I was expecting Thunderbolt.

    Jolteon used Shadow Ball!
    (48% damage)
    Electivire used Ice Punch!
    Jolteon's substitute faded!
    Jolteon's Leftovers restored HP a little!

    I got the sudden hunch that he was expecting me to switch, and therefore would switch back to his Swampert. Well, I had a nice little surprise for him...

    SS withdrew Jolteon!
    SS sent out Swampert!
    Electivire used Hidden Power!
    (100% damage)
    A critical hit!
    It's super effective!
    Swampert fainted!
    (10% recoil from Life Orb)
    SS sent out Dusknoir!

    6-5

    Yuck. I had a feeling that Dusknoir would begin some problems for my team.

    Electivire used Thunderbolt!
    (45% damage)
    (10% recoil from Life Orb)
    Dusknoir's Leftovers restored its HP a little!
    Dusknoir used Will-o-wisp!
    Electivire was burned!
    Electivire is hurt by its burn!

    Bye, Electivire.

    Dusknoir used Shadow Strike!
    (27% damage)
    Electivire fainted!
    I send out Infernape!

    5-5

    "Okay, I think this should finish up Dusknoir," I said to my self.

    Infernape used Flare Drive!
    (58% damage, recoil)
    Dusknoir fainted!
    SS sent out Gyarados!
    Gyarados's Intimidate cuts Infernape's attack!

    5-4

    Uh oh. UH OH. I bet he somehow know this one was holding a Choice Band. I panicked and made a foolish move.

    I withdraw Infernape!
    I send out Gyarados!
    Gyarados's Intimidate cuts Gyarados's attack!
    Gyarados used Dragon Dance!
    Dragon Dance boosted Gyarados's attack!
    Dragon Dance boosted Gyarados's speed!

    OH SHI- I went crazy and tried to freeze him, lol. (SS's gyara will have an asterisk by it to avoid confusion)

    Gyarados* used Dragon Dance!
    Dragon Dance boosted Gyarados*'s attack!
    Dragon Dance bossted Gyarados*'s speed!
    Gyarados used Ice Fang!
    (25% damage)
    Gyarados*'s leftovers restored its HP a little!

    ACK.

    Gyarados* used Waterfall!
    (40% damage)
    Gyarados used Ice Fang!
    (25% damage)
    Gyarados's leftovers restored its HP a little!
    Gyarados*'s leftovers restored its HP a little!

    Still no luck.

    Gyarados* used Ice Fang!
    (55% damage)
    Gyarados used Ice Fang!
    (25% damage)
    Gyarados's leftovers restored its HP a little!
    Gyarados*'s leftovers restored its HP a little!

    ...

    Gyarados* used Ice Fang!
    (17% damage)
    Gyarados fainted!
    I send out Porygon-Z!
    Gyarados*'s leftovers restored its HP a little!

    4-4

    It was all a matter of speed. I felt the feeling that Gyarados was faster. Despite the fact that I was right, some truly unexpected things happened.

    Gyarados* used Waterfall!
    (97% damage)
    Porygon-Z used Tri-Attack!
    (61% damage)
    Gyarados* was burned!
    Gyarados*'s leftovers restored its HP a little!
    Gyarados* is hurt by its burn!
    Gyarados* fainted!
    SS sent out Jolteon!

    4-3

    GAHAHAHAHA WOW

    Porygon-Z used Tri-Attack!
    (30% damage)
    Jolteon fainted!
    SS sent out Heracross!

    4-2

    Porygon-Z obviously dies now.

    Porygon-Z used Tri-Attack!
    (61% damage)
    Heracross used Pursuit!
    (3% damage)
    Porygon-Z fainted!
    I send out Infernape!

    3-2

    The game was mine, now.

    Infernape used Flare Drive!
    (39% damage, recoil)
    It's super effective!
    Heracross fainted!
    SS sent out Togekiss!

    3-1

    Mmkay, victory was assured.

    Infernape used Flare Drive!
    (90% damage, recoil)
    Togekiss used Thunder Wave!
    Infernape is paralyzed! It may be unable to move!

    Togekiss used Air Slash!
    (21% damage)
    It's super effective!
    Infernape fainted!
    I send out Azelf!

    Azelf used Psychic!
    (10% damage)
    Togekiss fainted!
    (10% Life Orb recoil)

    End result: 2-0


    Thanks for the great match, Slicing_Scizor! On a side note, I think Jibaku will use this to his advantage when I battle him/her X]

    Nice job.

    I used Tri-Attack so it could do damage to the rest of your team, not because I thought you would switch. =P

    Pursuit only lets you change moves afterward if the opponent switches when it's used. It's not like Hera would live through Flare Drive, anyway.

    Yeah, good team.

    Lol, this is pretty much the exact reason why Jumpman keeps ranting about how Taunt > Waterfall on Gyarados, because Earthquake does its job fine, especially in this case. :s

    Yeah, but you wouldn't believe how many other situations having Waterfall has saved me from.

    A little less dramatic than the other warstories, but I like how it was paced faster; my first Wifi battle took almost an hour, though most of the time was wasted on move animation (Leftovers, Sandstorm, lag, etc). It takes a while to adjust from NB to the real thing.

    Thanks for typing and posting it up. :)

    I would be really really stupid for asking, but in WiFi do you choose lvl 100 pokemon like in netbattle or not?

    This one was a little short... though I guess it goes to show the awesome power of Gyarados.

    Genius. Still not what I would do.

    Not related to the above comment, but how did Porygon3 outspeed Jolteon? You did'nt say on your original post. I only read the first page of responses, so I'm sorry if someone already asked this question.

    EDIT: actually, on second thought, ther's only one page of responses anyway. (sheepish grin)

    For future reference, you should always play with animations because of the difference between Quick Claw and Choice Scarf: when Quick Claw activates, it uses the "berry activating" animation but no text accompanies it! Something to consider.

    Look at the winner's team...no wonder it was such a short battle. He's all-out offense.

    Nice game.

    Did I just prove that the D/P metagame will in fact be hyper-offensive? I certainty hope not...

    Also, if I'm reading this right, did Electivire not take Life Orb damage when it broke a substitute? Or is this merely an omission made by the writer.

    Life Orb doesn't do damage if you attack Substitutes.
