I was playing with Jumpman16's team in the Platinum Battle Tower. I had a streak up to about 72 until I faced this lead: Infernape Jolly | Kings Rock Atk/Spe -Flare Blitz -Close Combat -Earthquake -ThunderPunch Keep in mind that I didn't know which Infernape was sent in until it attacked. Mesprit locked Infernape into Flare Blitz in the first turn. Infernape was faster than Mesprit after being Tricked the Choice Scarf, so it proceeded to KO Mesprit before it could do anything else. I was shocked with how nasty the damage was. I didn't know what to do, so I sent in Drapion... who unfortunately didn't get the Defense boosts in time. I had Drapion use Rest once, but when it got clear that Infernape would kill the asleep Drapion anyway, I switched in Garchomp to take the hit and it halved Garchomp's HP. Infernape then died from recoil damage and this Lapras was sent in: Lapras Modest | Brightpowder HP/SpA -Surf -Thunderbolt -Ice Beam -Psychic Again, at first I didn't know which Lapras it was. I was worried it was the one with Ice Shard, so I had Garchomp use Substitute. This was executed successfully, but the Substitute was broken by Ice Beam, so I figured it was the above Lapras. I was panicking... Outrage only halved Lapras's HP and Garchomp was obviously KOed by the next Ice Beam. My remaining sleeping Drapion was sent in... who was then KOed by a single Surf. I didn't get to see the opponent's third Pokemon. What would you guys have done from the beginning if you were in the same situation?
