    Pyroak begins pounding away at Slowking with Seed Bomb, but Slowking is too tired to put up any response, and just chills. It gets back some of its vitality too thanks to its Regenerator ability.

    Slowking then attempts to attack the mariguana, but Pyroak quickly sets up a Substitute before it can land its Dragon Tail. Pyroak seems to be getting low on energy again, but I suppose that was worth it to keep itself on the field.

    The two Pokemon then repeat their earlier actions, with Pyroak using Seed Bomb while Slowking just chills. The round ends and Pyroak has barely made a dent. Still, Slowking is just about as low on energy as Pyroak, so it probably won't be lasting too much longer anyways.

    it's got 71 en if you use all your chills so i'd not say the odds are in your favor that's fo shizzlets

    Wood Hammer ~ Seed Bomb ~ Chill

    IF he uses a Protective/Evasive action when you would be using a grass-type move then use chill that action and push back
    IF he uses substitute and you would be using seed bomb the next action and seed bomb would not break the sub then use Bullet Seed when you would normally WH and WH when you would normally Seed Bomb


    (note: sorry about that second sub, but i don't want to be screwed by the same syntax that very recently screwed me in df's match, and yes that sub is legal)

    Sorry. I was just so sure that there must be some way to energy KO. Maybe Slowking's missing a few moves or something. Anyway:

    I'm not sure if Disable works on commands, but the wording in the DAT is a bit ambiguous. On the off chance that it does:

    Surf ~ Counter ~ Disable (Chill)

    If, as I assume, it doesn't, then:

    Surf ~ Thunder Wave ~ Dragon Tail[/B

    This had such promise as a matchup.


    EDIT: Forget it. I'll just try and take down Machamp.

    Surf ~ Psychic ~ Dragon Tail

    Pyroak and Slowking continue to duke it out, as Pyroak slams into Slowking with Wood Hammer, and Slowking destroys Pyroak's Substitute with Surf. Pyroak's Rock Head really comes in handy for those recoil attacks I guess.

    Pyroak, remaining on the offensive, fires another Seed Bomb. Slowking is hit pretty hard by the attack, but retaliates with Psychic, slamming Pyroak to the ground. Pyroak's heavy armor is good for attacks like Wood Hammer and such, but it does make it more vulnerable to Psychic.

    Tired from its attacks and being attacked, Pyroak decides to chill and store energy. Slowking takes the opportunity and swings its tail into Pyroak with Dragon Tail, and the attack sends the lizard scurrying back to its Pokeball! Athenodoros's team is forced to send out Machamp, which is a much better matchup for Slowking. Of course, Slowking is running low on energy, so who knows what will happen.

    Machamp is forced back out to face Slowking, mirroring the start of the match, but this time around it seems much more confident. It quickly connects with a powerful ThunderPunch, sending Slowking reeling back. Slowking responds by using Psychic on Machamp, which does quite a bit, but not enough.

    Machamp then uses ThunderPunch again, which manages to knock out Slowking, ending the match and securing victory for smashlloyd's team!

    Wow, that was a nail-biter at some parts, atheno. Your slowking is quite the badass tank, and the dragonite sure had us scared. It's a shame only one of us can advance. GG.

    (ps em i think you gave too many MCs)
