    "Alright! Straight to the pressure!"

    Pumyra - Safeguard | Aura Sphere (Pants) | Air Slash (Pants)
    If you flinch on Safeguard, reattempt action unless you are Taunted.
    If Mind attempts Taunt on you, alternate Protect and Taunt (Mind) each time.

    Camille - Tailwind | Air Slash (Pants) | Aura Sphere (Pants)
    If you flinch on Tailwind, reattempt action unless you are Taunted.
    If Mind attempts to Taunt you, alternate Magic Coat and Protect.

    Asked on IRC yesterday, encore works on the last successful move used. If this is incorrect, I wish to reorder.

    Mime: Encore Tomahawk ~ Encore Togekiss ~ Snatch Togekiss
    Scrafty: Focus Punch Togekiss ~ Fake Out Togekiss ~ Focus Punch Togekiss

    Ah, yes. Here we are in ASB Arena! We start the round with a Safeguard from Pumyra, whose Prankster made it strike first! Now, Mind has none of this, and Encores Pumyra! This should be problematic for Lou... Anyways, Camille decides to use Tailwind to boost her team's Speed. Pants, who was dormant the whole round, had been tightening his focus for a Focus Punch on Camille! The next round, Pants Fakes Out Camille, who flinches, so Mind can Encore her Tailwind. This happens as Pumyra is forced to Safeguard again. Mind then Snatches Pumyra's Safeguard as the Encore wears off, and Camille uses another Tailwind. Then, Pants smacks Camille with yet another Focus Punch.

    I'm sorry, where is it stated that snatch is untargetable, AOPSUser? Certainly not in the DAT.

    Ah, apologies. Well, with the late edit of the reffing which affects my actions, I assume I have 2 more days. Will order by then.

    Apologies to all, but I forgot Intimidate and I forgot to include Fake Out in the post-round status.

    If this changes anything at all let me know.

    Mind: Fake Out Tomohawk-Light Screen-Thunder Togekiss
    If successful taunt targeting you, then magic coat and pushback
    If successful taunt targeting Scrafty, replace your action with Taunt Tomohawk and pushback
    Pants: Taunt Togekiss-Rock Slide-Ice Punch Togekiss
    IF you are targeted with a successful Flying-type attack on A2/A3 AND not Taunted, THEN use Protect once and push actions down.
    If successful fly AND you are not taunted, then counter. This sub takes precedence.


    Stupid healing wish prevents me from using snatch

    Lou is currently over DQ. To avoid your whole team being DQed, one of you should post in his stead.

    Thank you.

    So here we are in ASB Arena! Athenodoros has stepped in to order for Lou, who cannot be found.

    We begin with Pumyra Protecting itself from Pants's Fake Out. Meanwhile, Camille uses an obligatory Tailwind, while Mind Taunts her. Next action, Pumyra flies up into the air, and Camille uses an Air Slash, flinching Pants! Mind takes the time to set up a Light Screen. Pumyra then uses a Fly on Mind. The next action begins with an Aura Sphere from Pumyra, slightly denting Pants. Camille flies up into the air, but Mind abuses a Thunder, which has perfect accuracy on a flying mon. Then Camille tries a Fly on Mind, but it missed! Meanwhile Pants uselessly Counters

    This conversation has made me look back at last round and I suspect that I/Lou should not have been Encored A1. Encore had already done its two repeats on A2 and A3 of R1. With that the case, I think we might want to do it over anyway.

    Also, I'm going to wait for two days after reffing before posting to see if Lou comes back. I assume that's how DQ works and that it is fine.

    Not really. Camille flinched a2 last round, she wasn't truly using an Encored action until a3.

    Encore did not repeat A2, as Camille was Encored after being flinched: the two repeats were on A3 of R1 and A1 of R2.

    Leaving the reffing as it is right now.

    while we're waiting for DQ, i'm going to ask AOPSUser to explain where he got the fact that usage of tailwind while tailwind is active refreshes the effect. I'm basing this off the fact that if you use sunny day while sunny day is active, nothing happens.

    I got shot. Is that a valid excuse?

    To elaborate, I'm probably not going to post in anything but this match for a while. I'm told I shouldn't be anywhere but bed for a couple of weeks. Reading up now!

    EDIT: AOPS, why did a Thunder targeting Pumyra hit Camille action 3?

    Swooping in at the last minute again for fear of DQ. Sorry if you get to this in time anyway Lou...

    Camille: Fly (Pants) ~ Air Slash (Pants) ~ Air Slash (Pants)
    Pumrya: Air Slash (Pants) ~ Aura Sphere (Pants) ~ Aura Sphere (Pants)
    IF Pants faints, redirect attacks to Mind
    IF Pants uses Protect/Detect, redirect attacks to Mind
    IF Pants uses Torment, Pumrya uses Air Slash (Pants) ~ Focus Blast (Pants) from then on if he was targetted and Camille uses Aura Sphere (Pants) ~ Heat Wave if he was targetted.
