Its Confusion stage will not be checked and it will not hit itself in confusion during the second action. It recovers 3% energy during each Truant turn. Truant can be altered or shifted by Skill Swap, Role Play, Gastro Acid, or Mummy, but is not changed by Entrainment, Simple Beam, or Worry Seed.

    Overcoat (DW): (Innate) This Pokemon has a sturdy exterior that rebuffs the elements, making it immune to damage inflicted by bad weather.

    yay no earthquack!

    go fluffy!

    Discharge + Twister to make some epic electrical twister that does damage - cooldown - Thunder
    If Yawn is used, use Growl to drown it out and move actions back, unless it goes to action 3 then just use Thunder

    If Unown F is unavailable, use Unown P: Psycho Shift


    One more thing, I thought that the Combo-cooldown alongside Truant would work similar to using Hyper Beam in-game; rather than loafing, it recharges (No +3En, basically).

    I agree with the little tidbit.

    Anyway, fluffy, get rid of that annoying ability! Poof in a uhh what was it called... Unown W Worry Seed on yourself to replace Truant (and sadly Static but I guess its usefulness is already gone)! Then take a break with Slack Off because the dude attacking you is kinda vicious. End with an actual attack - Hyper Beam!

    Holy crap, I'm doing flavour this time. It's a Christmas miracle in September! Snapdragon seeks to better herself by ridding herself of this newfound laziness, and grabs Unown W, which fires seeds into her, giving her terrible Insomnia, replacing her Static... But unfortunately, it does not remove Truant, as Worry Seed cannot alter it! Oh my, that's not gone well. Duke counters by tackling Snapdragon, his power increased by the paralysis. As the cloud loafs about, Duke slashes at her painfully, and follows up with another tackle after Snapdragon blasts him with a powerful Hyper Beam!

    Oh, Truant's pretty dumb lol. So it's only Skill Swap. Role Play and the abilities that can alter it huh? Didn't see that... Good thing this is training!

    Okay, so let's try this one. Use Unown R (Role Play) to get Shield Dust over Truant. Then attempt to do damage with Dragon Pulse and Hyper Beam.

    Unown R (Role Play) (get rid of Truant plx) - Dragon Pulse - Hyper Beam

    Both battlers go for their Unowns in the first action, Snapdragon grabbing R for Role Play, temporarily relearning her old Shield Dust and Duke gaining P for Psycho Shift, transferring his paralysis to Snapdragon. Now that he's the faster one, Duke takes a chill pill, and relaxes to regain health. Doesn't stop Snapdragon blasting him with pure draconic energy, and as he slashes her, she responds with a mighty Hyper Beam to the face! Flora seems to enjoy this move...

    5% full paralysis. A_A I am so going to shoot my lasers at you soon, SoS! But enjoy your first uni lecture first!

    Anyway, it appears we are evenly matched... except Truant is back. :( Guess I'll have to roll with a combo.

    edit: just noticed my combo would energy-kill me lol. placeholder for better actions. ^_^ after school probably

    Umm, Duke has been gets STAB on Encore. Shouldn't the Energy cost only be 9?
    I can't check the Data Audit thread right now (restrictions on how big a page this computer can load), but if anyone could post a link on the single post to the Attacks section, that would be wonderful, thanks.

    Placeholder for when Flora posts

    EDIT: Yeah, 2 Recovers, 5 Chills. Otherwise I think we'd have to start again.

    It's perfectly legible before the opponent or official reffing posts. A player should have the right to edit before anything big happens.

    Anyway, I'll just do this:

    ... just noticed we never picked the Recovers/Chills lol. I guess we should say we have none or it's the standard 2/5?
