    So, I was chilling out on IRC one day when moi started going on about how he named the members of his new team after people he's known at Smogon. He mentioned my name among the list. Intrigued, I challenged young moi to a Pokémon battle!

    Note: this was played before Platinum was implemented.

    My team:
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]


    darkie's moves will look like this.
    moi's moves will look like this.
    Chat will look like this.
    Leftovers will be removed.
    Nicknames will be removed.
    Sandstorm/hail damage will be removed.
    Scores will be shown after each KO.

    Rules: Evasion Clause, Freeze Clause, OHKO Clause, Sleep Clause, Species Clause, Strict Damage Clause, Timed Battle
    darkie sent out Scizor (lvl 100 Scizor ?).
    moi sent out Wayff (lvl 100 Metagross).
    Scizor used U-turn.
    Metagross lost 27% of its health.
    darkie switched in Pepper Potts (lvl 100 Starmie).
    Metagross used Stealth Rock.
    Pointed stones float in the air around your foe's team!
    ---
    Hmm.. Metagross. Most Metagross leads nowadays are of the Stealth Rock and explode variety. I'll switch to something "safe" for now.

    Quilky Way has entered the room.
    Metagross used Pursuit.
    It's super effective!
    Starmie lost 62% of its health.
    darkie switched in Gengar (lvl 100 Gengar ?).
    Pointed stones dug into Gengar.
    Gengar lost 12% of its health.
    ---
    Oof, expecting an Explosion, I switched to Gengar to (hopefully) start out the game on a positive foot with a fainted Metagross. A good predict by moi, however, ruined my efforts. I was almost ready to give up at this point, but being the stubborn <bleep> I am, I kept on.

    moi: nice
    moi: solid predict
    Junior has entered the room.
    Gengar used Shadow Ball.
    A critical hit!
    Metagross lost 69% of its health.
    Metagross used Pursuit.
    It's super effective!
    Gengar lost 62% of its health.
    ---
    I now knew he was running a set with Pursuit, and with Pursuit, comes Bullet Punch. I stayed in though, predicting a Pursuit, because last turn I fled. I had two choices now that I eliminated the third option of switching: Shadow Ball or Hypnosis. I suspected a Lum Berry, so a Shadow Ball with some nice (albeit somewhat unecessary) hax is the move for me.

    Junior: i..
    Junior: why
    Junior: :(
    darkie switched in Jirachi (lvl 100 Jirachi).
    Pointed stones dug into Jirachi.
    Jirachi lost 6% of its health.
    Metagross used Bullet Punch.
    It's not very effective...
    Jirachi lost 9% of its health.
    ---
    What the hell, Junior? Anyway, again, mixing up my moves I switched against the inevitable Bullet Punch. Jirachi seemed like the most logical switch as he resists Bullet Punch and can KO.

    Jirachi used Thunderbolt.
    Metagross lost 4% of its health.
    moi's Wayff fainted.
    ---

    Although at this point I am winning in numbers, the situation is definitely not in my favor at this point. I know none of the rest of moi's team, while he knows a good majority of mine.

    (6-5 darkie)

    Wutang has entered the room.
    moi switched in Matty (lvl 100 Dugtrio ?).
    moi: silly boy
    Dugtrio used Earthquake.
    It's super effective!
    Jirachi lost 73% of its health.
    Jirachi used Psychic.
    Dugtrio lost 75% of its health.
    ---
    In my displeasure at seeing the trapping 'Trio, I completely didn't notice that he only did about 73%. In my head, I attributed this to Jirachi's bulkiness and Dugtrio's weakness, and it seemed to work out fine...in my head.

    moi: what the hell
    moi: i swear you were scarfed
    moi: oh right
    moi: meta is slow
    darkie: fucking matty
    moi: hahahahaha
    Dugtrio used Earthquake.
    It's super effective!
    Jirachi lost 30% of its health.
    darkie's Jirachi fainted.
    ---
    Well this was to be expected. moi's comments were interesting, but I disregarded them because moi is a sneaky, sneaky little fellow. I'm losing even more momentum (of what little I had), with the 'death' of a key member of my team.

    (5-5 tied)

    Junior: which one
    Junior: if its my aamto
    Junior: well
    Junior: darkie
    Junior: darkie
    Junior: fuck you!!!
    moi: no it's matty
    moi: like m4tty
    Junior: o sry
    Max has entered the room.
    Max: darkie
    Junior: B)
    Max: i challenge you
    moi: sup max
    Max: to a battle after this
    darkie switched in Scizor (lvl 100 Scizor ?).
    Pointed stones dug into Scizor.
    Scizor lost 12% of its health.
    moi: one sec i'm beating him
    moi: :(
    Max: =)
    Max has left the room.
    moi switched in darkie (lvl 100 Salamence ?).
    Salamence's intimidate cut Scizor's attack!
    Scizor used U-turn.
    It's not very effective...
    Salamence lost 10% of its health.
    Junior: im the best in this room
    darkie switched in Pepper Potts (lvl 100 Starmie).
    Pointed stones dug into Starmie.
    Starmie lost 12% of its health.
    darkie's leftovers restored its health a little!
    darkie restored 6% of its health.
    ---
    A 'nice' audience growing now. I knew moi wouldn't keep his weakened Dugtrio on Scizor with the threat of Quick Attack, so I simply U-turned to scout. An interesting switch to Salamence leads me to use my free turn to bring in Starmie. It should be basically a free KO, right?

    (In any case, don't listen to Junior.)

    Junior: soo great
    Starmie used Ice Beam.
    It's super effective!
    Salamence lost 93% of its health.
    Salamence used Draco Meteor.
    Starmie lost 32% of its health.
    darkie's Pepper Potts fainted.
    Salamence's special attack was harshly lowered.
    ---
    It was at this point that I noticed that he named his Salamence after me, (which by the way kind of screwed up the warmachine formatting).

    (4-5 moi)


    moi: honestly darkie you're p. useful
    darkie: oh
    darkie: it's me
    Wutang: im the best here
    darkie: how many sp def evs do i have??
    Junior: nope
    Junior: its me
    Junior: <---------
    moi: a shit load
    Junior: janiar
    Wutang: you cant wutang like me
    darkie switched in Scizor (lvl 100 Scizor ?).
    Pointed stones dug into Scizor.
    Scizor lost 12% of its health.
    Junior: fuck wutang and your wutangs
    Wutang: fuck junior
    moi switched in Jackal (lvl 100 Heatran ?).
    Scizor used U-turn.
    It's not very effective...
    Heatran lost 9% of its health.
    Wutang: more importantly, fuck moi
    darkie switched in "Yeah, I can fly!" (lvl 100 Salamence ?).
    Salamence's intimidate cut Heatran's attack!
    Pointed stones dug into Salamence.
    Salamence lost 25% of its health.

    ---
    With moi's Salamence at about 12% HP right now, I sent out Scizor to A) KO Salamence and B) get a free switch. I knew Scizor's U-turn would KO the VERY weak Salamence due to how much damage it did the first time, 10% with Intimidate factored in. Without Intimidate I KO. moi realized this as well, switching from the threat. My own Salamence carried Earthquake, as do most, so I hoped to scare off Heatran.

    moi: ...
    moi: wutang who are you
    moi: also fuck i got rid of dragon pulse
    Wutang: im wutang
    moi: god damnit i regret my decision
    darkie: woo!
    Heatran used Explosion.
    Salamence lost 57% of its health.
    moi's Jackal fainted.
    Salamence used Dragon Dance.
    Salamence's attack was raised.
    Salamence's speed was raised.
    ---
    Not heeding to moi's words, I adamantly (actually Jollily ;d) Dragon Danced up, knowing that I could survive and then KO with Earthquake. At this point, I thought the momentum was coming back to me.

    (4-4 tied)

    darkie: WOO
    moi switched in Matty (lvl 100 Dugtrio ?).
    moi: ugg fuck
    moi: gg
    darkie: ugh
    moi: :(
    darkie: annoying matty
    Dugtrio used Stone Edge.
    It's super effective!
    Salamence lost 25% of its health.
    darkie's "Yeah, I can fly!" fainted.
    ---
    Hmm, he seems to be ceded 'gg' to me. I'm not exactly in great shape, so I'll Roost up for some health. Stone Edge shouldn't KO while I'm Roosting, and Roost also stops Sucker Punch; it seems like the perfect move!

    Unfortunately, momentum goes quickly back to moi as he brings out his Scarfed Stone Edge mattytrio. Notice how matty uses sneakily uses the chat to lure me into a sense of security. Stupidly, I fell for it this time, and paid a heavy cost.

    (3-4 moi)

    moi: scarf matty
    moi: :)
    darkie: damn it
    darkie: i thought you would sucker punch
    moi: noppers
    darkie: so i roosted
    moi: scarf matty
    darkie switched in Iron Man (lvl 100 Lucario ?).
    Pointed stones dug into Lucario.
    Lucario lost 3% of its health.
    moi switched in darkie (lvl 100 Salamence ?).
    darkie's intimidate cut Iron Man's attack!
    Lucario used Swords Dance.
    Lucario's attack was sharply raised.
    darkie's leftovers restored its health a little!
    darkie restored 6% of its health.
    ---
    Now knowing that moi's Dugtrio is scarfed, I sent in my Lucario, with a handy 4x resistance to Rock. Swords Dance is the ideal move in this situation, as even if he stays into attack, I have that Lucario's excellent resistances to fall back upon.

    Lucario used Extremespeed.
    darkie lost 16% of its health.
    moi's darkie fainted.
    Lucario lost 10% of its health.
    ---
    Extremespeed as opposed to Crunch or Close Combat just in case his Salamence is EVed to outspeed Lucario. I get the KO and get momentum some away from moi.

    (3-3 tied)

    moi switched in Twist of Fate (lvl 100 Starmie).
    moi switched in Matty (lvl 100 Dugtrio ?).
    Lucario used Extremespeed.
    Dugtrio lost 25% of its health.
    moi's Matty fainted.
    Lucario lost 10% of its health.
    ---
    Finally, I can KO one of moi's team members and have the momentum back. It seems nothing can stop Lucario now! Well, if that were true, this warstory would not be a very good warstory.

    (3-2 darkie)

    Wutang: lol twist of fate
    moi: uggg shit
    moi: i don't know how much this does
    moi: aaah
    moi switched in JabbaTheGriffin (lvl 100 Infernape ?).
    Wutang: i hear he's good
    moi: do you ko me
    darkie: i believe so
    darkie: i hope you don't have mach punch!
    Infernape used Mach Punch.
    It's super effective!
    Lucario lost 64% of its health.
    Lucario used Extremespeed.
    Infernape lost 79% of its health.
    Lucario lost 10% of its health.
    ---
    Forgetting that I only had a +1 boost thanks to Intimidate, I went on the offense, hoping to snag a quick KO. Of course, moi psyches me out again, but fortunately for me, Infernape's relatively weak offenses combined with a low BP move don't quite cut it for moi.

    moi: well uh
    moi: i do
    darkie: lol
    darkie: suspected that
    darkie switched in Gengar (lvl 100 Gengar ?).
    Pointed stones dug into Gengar.
    Gengar lost 12% of its health.
    Infernape used Thunderpunch.
    Gengar lost 13% of its health.
    darkie's Gengar fainted.
    ---
    You could say this was a stupid move on my part. I attempted a 'free' switch to Gengar, hoping moi wouldn't realize. Of course, young moi is a step ahead of me, landing a nice (at least for him) KO to tie up the game again.

    (2-2 tied)

    darkie switched in Scizor (lvl 100 Scizor ?).
    Pointed stones dug into Scizor.
    Scizor lost 12% of its health.
    moi: bad move
    darkie switched in Iron Man (lvl 100 Lucario ?).
    Pointed stones dug into Lucario.
    Lucario lost 3% of its health.
    darkie's Iron Man fainted.
    Infernape used Mach Punch.
    But there was no target!
    ---
    That was probably a bad move. I misjudged Lucario's HP. A lot. Even so, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can still win this.

    (1-2)

    darkie switched in Scizor (lvl 100 Scizor ?).
    Pointed stones dug into Scizor.
    Scizor lost 12% of its health.
    darkie: ugh
    darkie: that was gay
    moi: fun game darkie
    moi: :)
    moi: if you used aa you lost anyways
    darkie: wth
    darkie: no
    moi: well either way you lose lol
    darkie: what kind of starmie was it
    moi: i was about to mach punch
    moi: which drops you down
    darkie: it wouldn't ko
    moi: counterstar
    darkie: oh
    moi: so i use surf
    moi: and survive
    moi: your uturn
    moi: lol
    darkie: what do you mean drops me down
    Infernape used Mach Punch.
    Scizor lost 23% of its health.
    Scizor used U-turn.
    It's not very effective...
    Infernape lost 21% of its health.
    moi's JabbaTheGriffin fainted.
    ---

    At first, I was very surprised Infernape went down to a U-turn, but in retrospect, a mistake I made in the team-building helped me a lot here. (I mistakenly had Swarm over Technician). Mach Punch going first was a big help in KOing that naughty little Infernape.

    (1-1 tied)

    moi: your hp
    moi: to like there
    moi switched in Twist of Fate (lvl 100 Starmie).
    Scizor used U-turn.
    It's super effective!
    Starmie lost 100% of its health.
    moi's Twist of Fate fainted.
    darkie wins!

    That Swarm error also helped me here! Cocky moi, believing his Starmie superior, thought he could survive a U-turn. I kind of started to believe him at this point, but I hoped for the best. Fun game, moi.

    Junior: scarfscizor
    Junior: xD;;;;;
    moi: oh wow
    Junior has left the room.
    moi: you actually do ko
    moi: hahahahahaha
    darkie: yes
    darkie: that was the plan!
    Wutang: you fai
    Wutang: fail
    Wutang: noob moi
    Wutang: how can you kill twist of fate...
    darkie: you think it's warstoryable?
    darkie: it came down to the wire
    moi: possibly
    moi: and it was good prediction
    moi: i made a lot of good moves
    moi: at the start of the match
    moi: like pursuiting starmie

    Props:
    ~Scarfed Scizor
    ~A "mistake" with Scizor's ability

    Slops:
    ~Showing too much of my team at the beginning.

    ~Forgetting about Intimidate affecting Lucario.
    ~Falling victim to moi's way with words.


    Note2: I kept most of the chat, because I thought it was funny and kind of important to the story. If it's a problem, I can remove it easily.

    That's an epic name


    *credit to shadowsabre cough*

    ahha anyway that was a great battle, moi got a little cocky at the end, or so it seemed. Even I thought he had it won though....so I guess he had a decent reason to be. =)

    Moi and Darkie going Mano e Nerdo. Excellent battle, I remember you telling me how Scarf Scizor saved your ass ;)

    I still think this should have been named Moi vs Moi.

    I'm sort of disappointed in moi for not having a Jyranitar on his team, but this was a good match nonetheless.

    Good read. It seems that moi had you at some points but you recovered and overcame the obstacle. Great suspense too (and obviously funny comments).

    I agree with venom, especially since me and him have put a stop to mois antics more than enough. Anyway this was a pretty cool battle but im glad the hero came out on top.
