how did you even find that replay? 700 rating vs 1200 trololol. the pits of despair
The magic of the "watch a battle" button?
>Mega Kick, Barrier, no Magic Guard Alakazam
>Using Rest with no Sleep Talk on MegaTar
>Using Aggron without Mevo, with Solarbeam
>Keeping Scizor in on Gyarados with no way to beat him
>Brave Bird Blaziken
>No Mevo Charizard
To be completely honest it seemed like this guy didn't know you can only have 1 Mevo per match
Now that I'm back playing instead of merely spectating things, I see a team with all Aguav Berries (except for Mewtwo) and a CM Ho-oh with Fly.
Altaria, Roserade, and Milotic. Pwrful threats.
EDiT of an EDIT:
Focus Blast Gallade. OP as frick.
And spamming those three attacks against an Absol.
Judgement/Extremespeed Normalceus, Tropius, Poliwrath, SILVER WIND Kricketune, and a non-FEAR Aron...
Sounds like someone hasn't quite grasped the idea that Generation I ended back in 1998.
Blizzard + Frustration + Max Happiness Cloyster.
Roar of Time + Draco Meteor + Blizzard + Hyper Beam Arceus.
Only two actual Ubers in this battle... and then it only got worse.
At first I thought the guy with a full team with the legendaries was going to be the only bad player... but what was up with the other guy's Azumarill? I don't even think it was running Huge Power.
And people really need to stop running Shell Bell on things not using FEAR.
I think Shell Bell could theoretically be useful on something with a great offensive stat (Attack or Special Attack) and decent defenses, but a crappy HP stat, so that the health regained from the Shell Bell would actually be better than that from Leftovers. The problem is that there's no Pokémon which fits this profile.
In practice, I've ground that Shell Bell is like a neutral nature - only useful in-game as a sort of poor man's substitute for the optimal but rarer alternative. In my Pokémon X game, I run a Docile Blaziken, but only because I don't have an Adamant one (there's five neutral natures and only one of each particular plus and minus nature, so a Docile Blaziken is much better than, say, a Bold, Modest, or Quiet one and much more likely than Adamant). As soon as I have a good reason to bench Blaziken for a while and don't have the Daycare occupied (trying to get a female Squirtle at the moment so I can breed Aura Sphere onto it), I am sticking Blaziken into the Daycare and churning out Torchic eggs until I can get an Adamant one. Until then, Docile's good enough.
Shell Bell is the same sort of thing. The only reason you'd use it is because you don't have enough Leftovers to give to every 'mon you want holding one. (And even then, Sitrus Berry is a better "poor man's substitute" unless you really want your 'mon to have constant recovery.) On a simulator, you can actually choose your 'mon's nature and held item freely, with none of that pesky "logistics" or "scarcity" stuff to get in your way. So there's really no excuse for a suboptimal item or nature.
Victini used Bolt Strike!
It doesn't affect Gliscor...
Me: "Do you have ANY idea how to play this game?!?"
Physical Alakazam and Mewtwo using Psychic and Thunder (in sunlight) made me just stare slack-jawed at my screen, struck dumb at the sheer incompetence of the Trainer. There is just no excuse for that sort of insanity. And the Azumarill was equally dumb. (Scald and Ice Beam?!? Really?)
Ninetales, Hyper Beam / EQ Mewtwo, and more. I don't even.
This thread has run its course, let's let the poor horse rest in peace.
