    Battle between Expect No Remorse and magic9mushroom started!
    Expect No Remorse sent out Alakazam!
    Go! Starmie!

    Mie vs. Zam lead. My usual play here is to go to Egg and sleep Zam.

    Battle timer is now ON: inactive players will automatically lose when time's up. (requested by Expect No Remorse)
    You have 150 seconds to make your decision.
    Starmie, come back!
    Go! Exeggutor!
    The foe's Alakazam used Thunder Wave!
    Exeggutor is paralyzed! It may be unable to move!

    magic9mushroom: timer off plz
    The foe's Alakazam used Seismic Toss!
    Exeggutor lost 25.4% of its health!
    Exeggutor used Sleep Powder!
    The foe's Alakazam fell asleep!

    Went off without a hitch. There's a few things I could switch in here (Snorlax and Rhydon are the obvious choices, followed by Starmie and Slowbro) but Snorlax is easily the most threatening so I'll go with that.

    Turn 3
    You have 150 seconds to make your decision.

    magic9mushroom: ohhh

    magic9mushroom: vaguely remember yeah
    Expect No Remorse withdrew Alakazam!
    Expect No Remorse sent out Rhydon!
    Snorlax used Body Slam!
    It's not very effective... The foe's Rhydon lost 10% of its health!
    The foe's Rhydon is paralyzed! It may be unable to move!

    And ayup, I've paralysed Rhydon. I suppose I could have gone to Egg or Mie here, but I figured I might as well kill off his Rhydon, hoping for an FP somewhere along the way.

    Turn 5
    Snorlax used Earthquake!
    It's super effective! The foe's Rhydon lost 37% of its health!

    The foe's Rhydon fainted!
    Expect No Remorse sent out Tauros!

    No such luck, and Tauros comes out. I'm in Hyper Beam range, but I figure he's not going to commit to that this early. Booming time!

    Turn 8
    The foe's Tauros used Body Slam!
    Snorlax lost 26.8% of its health!
    Snorlax is paralyzed! It may be unable to move!

    Snorlax fainted!
    magic9mushroom: know thy damage calcs :p
    DanielBryan'sBeard joined.
    Go! Starmie!

    Starmie's the only thing on this team that outspeeds Tauros. I figure that if he's going to switch, it'll be either Zam or Chansey, and Blizzard's better against both since it does more damage to Zam and has a chance to freeze Chansey.

    Turn 9
    Starmie used Blizzard!
    The foe's Tauros lost 6% of its health!
    The foe's Tauros fainted!
    Expect No Remorse sent out Chansey!
    Turn 10
    Expect No Remorse: Yeah, I'm rusty
    Starmie, come back!
    Go! Exeggutor!
    The foe's Chansey used Sing!
    The foe's Chansey's attack missed!

    He sacrifices Tauros, and I go to Egg to block the Thunder Wave figuring that I can boom it since it's still got enough health to take two Ice Beams. Dodged a bullet by accident - I wasn't expecting Sing at all.

    Turn 11
    Expect No Remorse: I have a Clan war tour match though so yeah...
    The foe's Chansey used Sing!
    But it failed!
    Exeggutor used Stun Spore!

    A critical hit! It's super effective! Exeggutor lost 65.9% of its health!
    Exeggutor used Stun Spore!
    The foe's Chansey is paralyzed! It may be unable to move!

    Paralysed Chansey's useful for my team, since it's built to enable a sweep with a Slowbro that doesn't itself have Thunder Wave (and slowing down a sleeper, now that I've seen Sing, never hurt anyone). I go for Psychic instead of the boom since I figure he's going to absorb it with his sleeping Zam, but...

    Go! Rhydon!

    I overpredicted badly. Oh well, I has Rhydon to absorb the sleep and/or kill Chansey. Going for Earthquake since Sing penetrates Substitute anyway.

    Rhydon used Earthquake!
    The foe's Chansey lost 58.0% of its health!

    Expect No Remorse sent out Slowbro!

    Bailed out by a full paralysis. Now his Slowbro comes out, and an opposing Slowbro's the perfect setup bait for my own signature Withdraw Slowbro, so out it comes.

    Turn 16
    magic9mushroom: well well
    magic9mushroom: we all know what I do about Slowbro, don't we?
    Rhydon, come back!

    He does the smart thing, Thunder Waving my Slowbro then switching out. His team's desperately weak to Slowbro, so he goes to the only check he has - Wrap Dragonite.

    Wrap. Exactly as tiresome in a log as it is in play. :p At this point I get sick of it and, since he still doesn't have Agility up, go to Starmie to force him out. Probably technically a mistake, but oh well.

    Thunderbolt there was in anticipation of a Slowbro switch, but he correctly sacrifices Dragonite to get it in unharmed. Now I've got my work cut out for me to get my own Slowbro back to health. I need to T-wave him (so that my own Slowbro outspeeds his), force him to Rest, then get my own Slowbro in (which will still outspeed his due to the lingering speed drop) and use Amnesia and Rest myself.

    All in all, an excellent game with a very protracted and unique chess match at the end thanks to our different Slowbro sets. Some hilarious hax on both sides, but that's RBY for ya. My heart was going a mile a minute for the last 50 turns or so. GG, MewtwoHidden, you played far, far better than the last time we battled, and scared the pants off me a couple of times there.

    Pretty solid game Magic, I was spectating this one actually.

    Turn 13 was a pretty bad over prediction IMO, especially seeing that Exeggutor was at such low health by that point, you really didn't risk much at all just Exploding, the worse case scenario was something was going to take a big chunk of damage from Explosion. Also it seemed pretty apparent by that point that he was staying in with Chansey.

    Your opponent was pretty solid, although he did make a few questionable moves like Singing a paralyzed Exeggutor and using Agility on Dragonite after being paralyzed instead of just attacking, if I am not mistaken he might of had a shot at KOing Chansey with Hyper Beam at turn 92.

    Yes, I noticed.

    I've seen a LOT of people switch a sleeping Zam into an Eggsplosion, and with the crit putting sudden pressure on me I felt like Exploding would be too obvious.

    Agi there isn't terrible; if he'd attacked and KOed Chansey then I'd have gotten Slowbro back to full health for free since Slowbro outspeeds paralysed Dragonite.

    It's not a new slowbro. Withdraw bro was always theorized as a good alternative bro set if you were afraid of Explosions/bro dittos. Most people not named MagicMushroom just prefer what Twave allows Bro to do if it can't set up (i.e., pretty often), though.

    In all seriousness, there's a lot of times I wish I had T-wave on it, but the entire point of that team was to use Withdraw Slowbro's hard-countering of most other setup sweepers as an excuse to otherwise ignore them for a stronger team in general (getting Thunderbolt off Starmie and Mega Drain off Egg, and allowing me to use Rhydon instead of Golem, among other things).
