    "I calced the Combo and it would barely kill arghonaut. But i forgot that EQ weakens in multi battles. Dangit.... More Stupid mistakes. Ah well, this might be checkmate. Who knows for sure though?

    Sorry Truffles, i was stupid. Take out these guys though, would you please?
    And Hazel, cause as much chaos as possible

    If Cincinno uses protect a1, then Stone Edge Crustle That action


    i was going to sub for Argo Enduring or Protecting, but he's at 7EN! What can he do? None of those shenanigans.

    Of course, i've have a bad streak of mistakes. Let's hope this round i havent dug myself deeper into the already inescapable hole.

    So far, everything has worked perfectly, well, besides the Rain Dance, that was a bit of a jerk. In any case, I was now free to checkmate this guy.

    "Alright guys, here's what we're going to do. Crustle, you will be focusing on killing off that Dusknoir, start off with a nice Rock Slide, then try focusing down that Dusknoir using a nice Rock Wrecker. Arghonaut, your usefullness has pretty much come to an end, so just use Aqua Jet and call it a day. Cinccino, take advantage of Crustle's protection to Rock Blast Dusknoir, letting Crustle's Rock Wrecker finish the job, then use a Bullet Seed on Mamoswine which will hopefully finish him off."

    "Good Game Glacier Knight!"

    Cinccino: Rock Blast (Dusknoir)~Bullet Seed (Mamoswine)

    Arghonaut: Aqua Jet (Mamoswine)~DEAD (Chill)

    Crustle: Rock Slide~Rock Wrecker (Dusknoir)
    If Dusknoir is already knocked out A2, redirect Rock Wrecker to Mamoswine.

    EDIT: Wait, I just realized something...give me a minute.

    Edit 2: Oh come on, let's see here.

    Combo Calc (open)

    Ice Shard + Icicle Crash
    BAP: 4+9=13
    Damage: [13+3+4.5]=20.5
    With Crit: 23.5


    Hmm, okay so if my calcs are correct, that means that Cinccino will survive easily, so I don't need to protect. Good.

    Crustle (Maxim)
    Cincinno (Maxim)
    Mamoswine (Glacier Knight)
    Dusknoir (Glacier Knight)
    Arghonaut (Maxim)


    The end is near for them, and both of Glacier's Pokemon can sense it. As one last effort, they send out some priority attacks, with Mamoswine using an Ice Shard+Icicle Crash combination on Cincinno and Dusknoir using a Shadow Sneak on Arghonaut. The latter attack manages to faint Arghonaut, as the poor thing waves a white flag with its tentacle. Crustle and Cincinno respond by using a Rock Slide and Rock Blast respectively, putting Dusknoir on the verge of fainting.

    Crustle proceeds to launch a Rock Wrecker at Dusknoir, doing just that, while Cincinno follows up with a Bullet Seed on Mamoswine, who also faints. And with that, Maxim has won the match! As some sort of sign, the rain on the field clears up and the sun comes back out...

    Dang, that was an amazing match Glacier Knight! Probably one of my favorites, and not because I won.

    Good Game Glacier!

    priority moves are half base power in a combo unless comboed to themselves~

    anyways, flavor is up or something x.x
