    This is also Little Cup by the way, so that you guys don't get surprised.

    Background:

    I licked my wounds after my last loss. Heysup had bested me in the first ever GSC Doubles match. I deviously challenge him again, this time hoping Pokemon Online does not glitch up my Scyther again. The window opens up, and the showdown between a gsc beginner(me) and an pro(heysup) begins...

    Destiny Warrior: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Heysup: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Battle between Heysup and Ducky Ducky started!

    Tier: OU GSC
    Rule: Unrated
    Rule: Sleep Clause
    Rule: Freeze Clause
    Rule: Species Clause
    Rule: Self-KO Clause

    Ducky Ducky sent out Gastly!
    Heysup sent out Phanpy!
    Ducky Ducky sent out Doduo!
    Heysup sent out Chansey!
    Ducky Ducky sent out Scyther!
    Heysup sent out Gastly!
    Ducky Ducky: COOL SCYTHER LOADED
    Heysup: how do triples work
    Heysup: can i not attack
    Heysup: your scyther
    Ducky Ducky: yeah
    Heysup: with my phanpy
    Heysup: or something
    Ducky Ducky: you can't

    Heysup attempts to bluff me into thinking that he does not know the mechanics of triples, and I play along. He sends out his Phanpy, his Chansey and his Gastly. A dangerous trio. Hopefully, my Gastly, Doduo and Scyther will hold out against his offense.

    Start of turn 1
    Scyther used Hidden Power!
    The foe's Chansey lost 43% of its health!

    Gastly used Giga Drain!
    It's super effective!
    The foe's Phanpy lost 53% of its health!
    The foe's Phanpy had its energy drained!

    The foe's Gastly used Hypnosis!
    The attack of the foe's Gastly missed!

    Doduo used Double-Edge!
    The foe's Chansey lost 56% of its health!
    Doduo is hit with recoil!
    The foe's Chansey fainted!

    Heysup sent out Elekid!
    The foe's Phanpy used AncientPower!
    It's super effective!
    Doduo restored a little HP using its Berry Juice!
    Doduo lost 13 HP! (56% of its health)

    Scyther manages to go first, weakening Chansey significantly. Gastly gears up for the 2HKO on Phanpy, while Doduo cleans out Chansey's clock. The brave Pokemon dodge Gastly's hypnotizing stare, and DOduo takes recoil from Double-Edge and an AncientPower like a man, and drinks up its Berry Juice. Next turn, I intend to KO the dangerous Elekid with another double attack, and beat Phanpy as well. 6-5

    Start of turn 2
    Scyther used Hidden Power!
    The foe's Elekid lost 54% of its health!

    The foe's Elekid used Thunderbolt!
    It's super effective!
    Scyther restored a little HP using its Berry Juice!
    Scyther lost 21 HP! (80% of its health)

    The foe's Gastly used Thunderbolt!
    It's super effective!
    Doduo lost 22 HP! (95% of its health)
    Doduo fainted!

    Ducky Ducky sent out Chansey!
    Gastly used Giga Drain!
    It's super effective!
    The foe's Phanpy lost 46% of its health!
    The foe's Phanpy had its energy drained!
    The foe's Phanpy fainted!

    Heysup sent out Houndour!

    Several things happen this round. I weaken Elekid, but Doduo dies before it can pull off the finishing attack. Scyther barely hangs on to sip its Berry Juice, while Gastly pulls the KO on Chansey. I bring out my Chansey, the greatest wall of GSC LC of ALL TIME!5-4

    Start of turn 3
    Scyther used Hidden Power!
    The foe's Elekid lost 45% of its health!
    The foe's Elekid fainted!

    Heysup sent out Scyther!
    The foe's Gastly used Thunderbolt!
    It's super effective!
    Scyther lost 19 HP! (73% of its health)
    Scyther is paralyzed! It may be unable to move!

    Gastly used Destiny Bond!
    Gastly is trying to take its foe with it!

    The foe's Houndour used Crunch!
    It's super effective!
    Gastly lost 22 HP! (100% of its health)
    Gastly took the foe's Houndour down with it!
    Gastly fainted!
    The foe's Houndour fainted!

    Ducky Ducky sent out Ponyta!
    Chansey used Ice Beam!
    The foe's Gastly lost 42% of its health!

    My swift Scyther sneaks in a KO on Heysup's Elekid. However, it pays a terrible price when Heysup's angered Gastly paralyzes it, leaving it almost dead. My own Gastly manages to take a small revenge, dragging Houndour down with it, easing the path of its comrades. An all-out suicidal attack is the only way to defeat Heysup now, as he begins an eerie chant, invoking the hax gods to bless him and back him...

    Start of turn 4
    The foe's Scyther used Double-Edge!
    Ponyta restored a little HP using its Berry Juice!
    Ponyta lost 14 HP! (60% of its health)
    The foe's Scyther is hit with recoil!

    Ponyta used Fire Blast!
    The attack of Ponyta missed!

    The foe's Gastly used Thunderbolt!
    It's super effective!
    Scyther lost 6 HP! (23% of its health)
    Scyther fainted!

    Ducky Ducky sent out Cubone!
    Chansey used Ice Beam!
    It's super effective!
    The foe's Scyther lost 52% of its health!

    Heysup Double-Edges my Ponyta, who reels back in pain. Ponyta attempts to respond with a Fire Blast, but it looks like Heysup is indeed blessed by the haxgods, for it misses! To top it off, Gastly kills my Scyther as well! Licking my wounds, I send out Cubone as Chansey manages to a good number to Scyther with an Ice Beam. Will the GSC amateur manage to defeat the hax gods, or will the beloved of the hax gods prevail?

    Start of turn 5
    Ponyta used Quick Attack!
    A critical hit!
    The foe's Scyther lost 32% of its health!
    The foe's Scyther fainted!

    The foe's Gastly used Hypnosis!
    The attack of the foe's Gastly missed!

    Chansey used Thunder Wave!
    The foe's Gastly is paralyzed! It may be unable to move!
    The foe's Gastly ate its Lum Berry!
    The foe's Gastly's status cleared!

    Cubone used Rock Slide!
    A critical hit!
    The foe's Gastly lost 57% of its health!
    The foe's Gastly fainted!
    Ducky Ducky: gg

    The hax gods appear to take mercy on me, for I manage to outhax and outflank Heysup to victory. I manage to destroy Heysup's last stand, and take the victory. Later, it transpired that Heysup had cut his chant short to sneeze, and therefore, some dust is what defeated the beloved of the hax gods. Good game Heysup.

    Great warstory, a good battle and well-presented foray into as-yet-uncharted adventures. I hope we'll be seeing some new GSC analyses!

    ETA: You should update the title to reflect the milestone! Not only is this the first ever GSC triples warstory, it's the first ever GSC triples LC warstory!

    How do I request gen 2 (LC) triples get a ladder on the Smogon server? The warstory makes it sound pretty fun.
