    i have had that cloyster since i was a boy. for years we hiked through mountains, fields, and cities, fighting the strongest of opponents, and losing to all, because cloyster sucks - when one day i came across a rock in a dumpster i had just been tossed into, a rock like no other, a rock fit for a king! naturally, i shoved it inside my cloyster's...hole...and proceeded to destroy every opponent i faced with my well trained clam causing the opponents to flinch in fear at the sight of its skeletal spikes and glorious stone. alas, kidogo was no exception. his pitiful, badly trained ninetales was too distracted by the beauty of the king's rock to focus on its attack, which the clam dodged skillfully by withdrawing into its shell. it proceeded to smash said shell, revealing the full extent of the shiny rock inside, and the dazzling display of color and brilliance was too much alone for my opponent to handle. cowering in fear, kidogo clicked buttons at random as my clam routed his team, spear by skill-linked spear. another victory for the kid and his bivalve. did you expect anything else?

    well I did a warstory and it got closed within 10 minutes. it takes alot of work to make these and if someone doesn't like it it could have been shut down very quickly. Maybe people got turned off by that?

    Suspect Test Cresselia for almost surviving Cloyster's ultimate power.

    Yea I don't understand why you would use wil o wisp on cloyster when it has like -5 sDef and you're working with STAB and sun boost. As someone said, Ice Shard could finish it off if i carried sash or hp+herb. Donphan's high def and sturdy makes it so that it can't lose to the rare Ice Shard Cloyster.
    The moves to try to recover from the mishap were decent(although hax prevented recovery), but that one turn was pretty risky for no reason. Saving Ninetales hardly affects a match against weatherless.

    Well, Lavos probably should have switched out Cloyster. I have no idea why he didn't, maybe he thought he was faster? And in that case, Will-O-Wisp would have crippled the likely Aerodactyl switch in, while still obviously ruining Cloyster. So not a bad play I on the whole I think. Also there's a decent chance Kingdra has rain dance, especially since Lavos's team was a bit weak to sun. So he wanted to save Ninetales for that as well.

    On another note, can someone start making some more goddamn real warstories? I love reading these things, and while this was funny, I'd like to see a good OU player write up an actually good match, or even a bad player writing a funny warstory.

    Yeah I used WoW cause it completely cripples cloy and I preferred not to sac tales and ice shard, not to mention that most people would switch cloy out there--lavos obviously was trusting its ninja training to save it. And actually there's a WS i'm in the process of writing, it's just that formatting these takes so much time when it's a real match (not having to calc HPs each turn in this one saved like hours) but now that school's out I'll actually finish that one lol.

    we need a warstory generator badly :( One that can import from a showdown replay and format so that we only need to add commentary.

    Who's up for the programming job? :P

    Cloyster used as a lead is a blatant sign that it's sashed.
    Then again the whole concept of a lategame sweeper used as a lead confuses me unless you plan to troll the opponent, which is precisely what happened here.

    It saddens me that you consider Ice Shard Cloyster to be a rare occurence, when in fact it's its most useful attack against a number of threats such as Venusaur and Latios. It really needs to be used more often.

    I would have used flamethrower and if it was indeed sashed then you could have just ice sharded with Donphan (assuming it has ice shard). But man that battle was entirely based upon you choosing to use WoW over flamerhrower and missing. I am also amazed that Kidigo has enough pride to share this with everyone considering how Lavos acted like a bitch. 10/10 and luvdisced for awesomeness.
