    Smogon, I am here to bring you the gift of this warstory. I post it not because I want respect, not because I want glory, not because I want luvdiscs, and (certainly) not because I love Pokemon. I bring you this story because it needs to be told. I am the Paul of Pokemon, spreading the sacred scripture of how gay Jirachi, Keldeo, Breloom, Genesect, and Tornadus-t are...by using them.

    Bombastic opening aside, I really enjoyed this match, and I hope you guys do too. And yes, my team may be made up of the five cheapest Pokemon ever. At least Genesect looks cool though.

    Superstar's team (open)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Shadow Trainer's team (open)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    So, I look at his team. The strategy he is using will be obvious to most of you. Volt-turn with Magneton, Genesect, and Scizor weakens the other team. Magneton was probably chosen to remove steels so that Gliscwhore could have his way with toxic-stalling on other teams.

    My team should be pretty obvious as well. I'm basically abusing gay-ass pokemon (I take that back. Gay people are not meant to be offended by me comparing them to Breloom). Breloom spores and dances, Keldeo and Tornadus-T wreck, Genesect scouts, and Jirachi is there to provide defense. Politoed does absolutely nothing, because it is a useless excuse for a Pokemon.

    The foe's Genesect's Special Attack rose!

    I send out Keldeo anticipating that he will try to win the weather war early with T-Tar. Instead, he sends out Genesect. This is fine, because Jirachi can easily take anything Genesect can do, especially an unboosted U-turn.

    Jirachi takes the T-Bolt like the fucking wall that she is. Maybe Gensect will go for the Thunderbolt and try to hurt my Jirachi. Maybe he will switch in Magneton. This last possibility seems the most alarming, so I Twave, hoping to ruin one of his scarfers. Even if Gliscwhore switches in, I can just switch out.

    And of course Gliscor switches in. It will probably protect, since most Gliscors are pussies. I decide to switch to Genesect, who gives no fucks about what some overgrown bat thinks about the size of his laser cannon. It's 9 inches long, for reference. Genesect can also fire off an ice beam from his other laser cannon, the one on top of his head.

    Shadow Trainer sent out Magneton!
    [​IMG]

    U-turn on a Gliscor? Huh. My suspicions about his team being volt-turn were right on the money it seems. Time to U-turn out, just in case he is trying to bait me into giving T-tar a free turn or something. Honestly, why else would he switch his slow -ass pokemon into something that is scarfed 90% of the time. (Note: Choice Band Genesect is boss)

    Turn 4

    Genesect used U-turn!
    It's not very effective... The foe's Magneton lost 21% of its health!

    It's super-effective! Breloom lost 87% of its health!

    Breloom restored a little HP using its Leftovers!
    [​IMG]

    Clearly, just so that he could HP Fire it! This is a real bad piece of news. Magneton is going to have his way with the team and I'm...oh wait no. Game Freak just released the new, improved, Technician Breloom. This has had the effect of making Breloom even easier to use than before. I Mach Punch, knowing it's going to take a big dent out of something.

    Shadow Trainer sent out Gliscor!
    [​IMG]

    And my boy Glicor comes in for the revenge. Well, Breloom is all but dead now anyway, so I'll just sac it, since nothing on my offensive team is going to like Ice Fang/Earthquake, and who knows which one my opponent will choose.

    Turn 6

    The foe's Gliscor used Ice Fang!

    Superstar sent out Politoed!

    Politoed's Drizzle made it rain!
    [​IMG]

    Gastrodon is going to come in. It's almost painfully obvious, and I stopped running HP Grass on Toed since sub-CM pokes kept raping me. The most painful thing in the world may just be watching Latios slowly begin to rape you once your Genesect is gone. This excludes many real world events that are much more painful than metaphorical Pokemon rape.

    [​IMG]

    Well, maybe goodbye wan't quite the right word. I have to think about this next move. He probably stayed in thinking that I would U-turn/Superpower/Focus Blast on the predicted Ttar switch. Or maybe he just wanted to do a good chunk of damage to Tornadus. Maybe he will stay in again. I don't know. But since Tornadus-T has the amazingly (broken) Regenerator (which is broken) ability, I can just Hurricane some more and switch out if necessary. Or even better, U-turn when the T-Tar actually comes in. I outspeed even scarf Tyranitar, for those uninitiated with Tornadus-T's (broken) base 121 speed. Plus, it does good for my opponent to see me as only making obvious moves, since it makes him see me as stupid

    Turn 9

    Shadow Trainer called Gastrodon back!
    Shadow Trainer sent out Tyranitar!

    The foe's Tyranitar's Sand Stream whipped up a sandstorm!

    [​IMG]

    So the Tyranitar comes in, as Tyranitars are wont to do. When in doubt, U-turn out! He'll probably just set up rocks anyway. This is not good, but most of my team resists rocks anyway. And Tornadus-T has Regenerator. (Did I mention...)

    [​IMG]

    Prediction is going to be key here. Tyranitar is switching out. I mean obviously. So the question is whether I should use Secret Sword or Hydro Pump. I think he's going to predict that I will Secret Sword, because I haven't been predicting him all match, and he will just think I will go for the kill on his Tyranitar. Hydro Pump on your ass, Gliscor.

    Turn 11

    Shadow Trainer called Tyranitar back!
    Shadow Trainer sent out Gliscor!

    Keldeo used Hydro Pump!
    It's super-effective! The foe's Gliscor lost 100% of its health!

    The foe's Gliscor fainted!
    The sandstorm rages!

    Gliscor dies, just as predicted, leaving nothing on Shadow Stalker's side of the computer but the rustling of leaves in the wind. Why there were leaves and wind is either a reflection on the pussiness of Gliscor, or a testament to the blatant violations of the building code that my landlord ignores every single day.

    Keldeo is buffeted by the sandstorm!
    Shadow Trainer sent out Genesect!

    The foe's Genesect's Download activates!
    The foe's Genesect's Special Attack rose!

    And we return to the same match-up that started the match. Once again, he nabs a Special Attack boost. Once again, I return to Jirachi, because Jirachi can take any thing that Genesect can throw at it.

    The little slug comes in to stop my attacks once again. Did I mention that I hate Gastrodon? OH HES GOT A WATER IMMUNITY PERFECT COUNTER TO RAIN TEAMS BLAH BLAH BLAH. He's still a fucking slug that you are using to try and counter enormous birds of prey, desert rock dinosaurs, and my little ponies. Anyway, he's probably going to go for the scald. I switch in Tornadus-t to allow Genesect a free switch in.

    The toxic miss is unfortunate, but I don't think it affected the end of the battle. Why did Game Freak give Toxic 90% accuracy anyway? Just to make sure that Blissey wasn't totally over powered? I switch in Jirachi, because Toxic poison is a leech on the life of your Pokemon, slowly taking their health quicker than watching a Nicholas Cage movie destroys your sanity.

    The slug wakes up, and I am not amused. Tyranitar is probably coming in, because a)It is the most bad-ass Pokemon ever invented, and b)It doesn't give a fuck if it's paralyzed. However, paralysis on Ttar will give me an excellent shot at flinch haxxing it to death, and maybe he'll switch in Genesect for some odd reason and give me the match.

    My children, when you go through life you must make sure you are a bad-ass. You have to know that you are the biggest, baddest motherfucker in the valley of the shadow of death, and you don't fear no goddamn evil because your are on your own side.
    "
    -Psalm 23:12 or 16 or maybe 432 I don't remember the verse so sue me.

    My bible knowledge is a little rusty, so I may have gotten the passage a bit wrong. Please post in the comments if a word or two was off.



    The point of this biblical nonsense is that the winner of this match was preordained.
    I have sold out my manhood by using pussy-ass Pokemon, whereas my opponent is using bad-ass dinosaurs, metal bugs, and desert bats. Who will win the speed tie? Some may say it is a coin toss, I say that it is the motherfucking hand of fate coming down on me like Chris Brown's fist.









    Turn 38

    The foe's Genesect used Flamethrower!
    It's super-effective! Genesect lost 40% of its health!

    Genesect fainted!

    Shadow Trainer won the battle!

    Shadow Trainer: gg
    Superstar: I'm at the end of my wits with half the shit that gets in

    It came down to 50-50 chance, so if you don't believe in fate, pick your own winner.

    Props:
    My opponent, for using bad-ass Pokemon.
    Me, for not pussying out with Tornadus and U-turning
    Genesect, for being awesome

    Slops:
    Me, for using Jirachi and Breloom.
    There were a lot of misplays and predictions and shit.

    MVP:
    Mine was Keldeo, for killing a ton of shit it needed to.
    His was Genesect, for constantly being an offensive nusance and a pain in my ass.


    I'd like to close with a quote from the concession speech of Herman Cain, my favorite politician ever:
    "I believe these words came from the Pokemon movie: 'Life can be a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.'"

    First and foremost, you should definitely ease up with the language. Idk if it was for laughs, but it seemed very detrimental to the quality of the warstory. The formatting seemed to be the highlight as the battle itself was very mediocre. There really wasn't anything to make me want to keep reading since your comments did little to nothing in adding tension to the match. You should also explain some of the moves you make in detail as opposed to saying that you'll just kill them next turn.

    Honestly, I completely disagree.

    I love the horrendously, intentionally offensive commentary. It was hilarious and witty, and made the warstory fun to read despite the battle being fairly ordinary, even if it did come to a bit of a nail-biting conclusion. I wouldn't be so prudish as to bash a wartstory for using this comedic style, especially since that'd be horribly hypocritical given the humor I use in some of my own work :P.

    Also, props for posting a warstory where you lost, takes dedication to the art to do that :P

    You should note that your Tornadus-T images are broken, though I suspect that's do to the applications you were using to help write this not being updated yet.

    Keep up the good work, I loved your writing and had a good laugh from reading this. It's nice to see a warstory that doesn't take itself too seriously from time to time.

    EDIT: also as for "you should also explain some of the moves you make in detail as opposed to saying that you'll just kill them next turn"... seriously, at what point was there more to say? None of the actions he made needed really in depth explanation. He does explain them, just very briefly and that's all he needed. This wasn't some complex strategy with high levels of mind games; it was "ok if I do this, then this dies. If he predicts, it doesn't". That doesn't lend itself to long techinical explanations.

    This was funny as hell. Between that, the biblical quote(which is a whole nother level of funny), and the fact that you lost, this warstory was amazing.

    I liked this Warstory. BTW I'm a huge Eminem fan so I liked the reference you made after the battle ended.

    Good to see someone actually watched the replay :O
    Added the quote to the end of the warstory for those chumps that don't watch replays (which is everyone) so that they could appreciate some "Till I Collapse"

    First of congrats for posting the warstory, the formatting made it great to read and the humour was had me cracking up a little. However, the actually battle was fairly mediocre, neither of you showed a great deal of prediction, strategy and planning. Some of the turns seemed very counterproductive and could have been use better. e.g

    "But since Tornadus-T has the amazingly (broken) Regenerator (which is broken) ability, I can just Hurricane some more and switch out if necessary"

    I thought that this was a very ill thought out plan because Tyranitar could have and should have just Pursuited you.

    "The foe's Gastrodon used Rest!"

    I do not see any reason to use rest on Gastro because Recover is far better. Honestly if you are worried about Toxic that is why you have Gliscor, Magneton, Scizor and Genesect.

    Thirdly I didn't think that either of you used Genesect to its full potential to gain any momentum or anything. Such as when the opponent used Thunderbolt a multitude of times where the switch was obvious and you could have gained momentum.

    On turn 2 I don't understand why you used Thunder Wave, not many pokemon on his team were greatly hampered by it and you could have used SR which would have been far more beneficial, hampering the amount of turn Scizor and Genesect could have done. Using Stealth Rock would have justified not switching to the predicted Magneton switch in that for some reason he didn't do.

    I do not understand why you were so quick to sack Breloom. It could have done basically what Jirachi did except it could also threaten Genesect and Scizor, KOing both at +2 or unboosted after some SR rounds.

    " It will probably protect"

    I do not understand this at all. Gliscor gained momentum when it came in on Jirachi, why would it use protect to change that. Gliscor can take anything rachi wants to throw hell even if he were worried about a SubCM rachi and unboosted, weatherless Water Pulse isn't going to do much. This means that he would either Taunt, U-turn or EQ. Given the nature of his team I would have thought he would run U-turn> Taunt. This means that he would either EQ or use U-turn to gain momentum.

    I am sorry to be so critical this match just didn't strike me as a very well played or thought out match. That said I respect the amount of effort you put into this warstory and if you keep trying I'm sure that you will get there. In future maybe explain your movesets a little. Anyway good luck in the future cya

    Wow man that's some great feedback. This warstory was somewhat of a joke (obviously), and I do have some better played battles (I do! I promise!), but it's always great to hear someone who put a lot of thought into helping me improve my game. Thanks for the tips man. Always appreciated.

    EDIT: Also, looking at his team, it was clear that TTar was his Stealth Rocker/Answer to special attacks, and therefore very likely had no pursuit. (Honestly, how many TTars with pursuit do you see anymore?) I did explain why I sacced Breloom. I didn't want anything else to be dented by an EQ, or Tornadus-T by an Ice Fang, since he could have used either and KOd. SR would have been a good idea on Turn 2 though you are absolutely right and that was a major misplay. My thinking was that Twave would cripple Magneton/Scizor and let me flinch them to death. Even though I mispredicted Gliscor, switching to Genesect was still a good call, and he is my main answer to Gliscor.
    So yeah, in short, my desire was first and foremost for comedy -- and you are right on many of your points, but I did have some logic and I apologize for not explaining it better in the warstory.
    I STILL STAND BEHIND EVERY INSULT I THREW AT EVERY SINGLE POKEMON IN THAT STORY THOUGH
