    Complications walked into the abandoned factory and looked around at the outdated machinery filling it.

    "Do you feel it in the air, Optimus?"

    "Yes, I do, Complications. I feel the tension. The air is static with it."
    Earlier that day, after having not been able to get any information from the Larvitar, Complications had received an anonymous letter, warning him that one of the serial killer's close allies was hiding out here.

    "Now it's only a matter of time..."

    If Stratagem uses Double Team, use Snatch, but only if you do not already have Double Team clones.
    If Stratagem uses Volt Switch, use U-Turn on that action.

    Your calcs are off slightly

    71-17.5-2=51.5 +19.5=72 -17.5-2=52

    If Blastoise uses a damaging evasive attack after action 1, use Reflect on the first instance and Barrier on the second.
    If Blastoise uses Mirror Coat after A1, use Toxic on the first instance and Spark on the second.

    My apologies- fixed. However, (90.5+51.5)/2=71, not 72,

    100-11.5+2=90.5 -19.5=71 +2=73

    71-17.5-2=51.5 +19.5=71 -17.5-2=51

    Urgh, sorry fixed! I even had in caps: APPLY STURDY. Anyway, I couldn't get an answer from IRC, but I applied Sturdy BEFORE Reflect, but if it's the other way around I will fix it!

    "This isn't going well," Complications growled to himself. The man that he was battling was slowly, but surely, building up a lead that would more than likely lead to Complications' demise in the long run, but he still needed answers. He had to think quick.
    "Optimus, any suggestions?"
    "A tactical retreat."
    "Thanks for the vote of confidence. Zolt, do you have any plans?"
    "One plan would appear to be ideal."

    His foe had him backed into a corner. Every round, his lead grew, and so did hi confidence. Complications was out of options. Time to do something desperate.
