sigh... new record, 47 wins. glaceon, you're a jerky mon. also yeah stop putting the factory down please it is a great facility edit: so yeah i totally fucked that up. awful playing on my part. i have expert belt special lucario, life orb tauros with intimidate, and flare blitz/hypnosis rapidash who, sadly, doesnt have flash fire. they open mr mime. i shadow ball for like 70% as they reflect (which is what i was most concerned about, as an 8 turn reflect where my other mons are physical will probably spell my doom). i shadow ball again for the kill. 3-2 they bring in ninetails. fuck me. no choice but to switch in rapidash (why oh why dont you have flash fire?) so i take an overheat for a surprisingly decent amount of damage, and it white herbs its status. i go for the hypnosis just to buy time vs the reflect. it hits. i double edge for like 25%, and it wakes up after one turn (of course) and nasty plots. so heres where i go on tilt and start playing terribly. i figure i need another hypnosis hit to win, otherwise i get murdered by a +2 ninetails under reflect. i hypnosis, miss, and die to dark pulse. 2-2 i figure my best bet now is to bring in the lucario, who either gets lucky with an overheat miss or dies a valiant death to put ninetails back to neutral sp atk. overheat, it dies. 1-2 i send tauros in. this is the last turn of reflect. i eq to bring it to about 10%, it confuse rays me. i eq it for the kill through the confusion. 1-1 their last mon is glaceon. i rock slide and hope for the best... i hit through confusion, dealing like 60% (the def one, obviously) before dying to a blizzard. so yeah basically had i not been absolutely retarded, i could have easily won that game. despite my awful luck of the mime using reflect, and the one-turn sleep, i still could have won. instead of going for the second hypnosis i should have double edged. that would have put ninetails to about 50% which is ko range for the life orb eq from tauros even after the reflect. then they would have had 1 pokemon to my 2, and one turn left of reflect. obviously not a guaranteed win, but pretty fucking close. seeing how they had glaceon though it was in fact a guaranteed win: facade with tauros to potentially break the sash, when/if tauros dies lucario hits through any kind of evasion bullshit with stab se expert belted aura sphere. fuck, so close to a gold symbol.
