    Ahh. I love Mixed Rayquaza, and I haven't thought to put ExtremeSpeed on it. It's more useful than Thunderbolt in some situations.

    Great warstory, Gen.

    Good, we need some more people joining the Uber game. It's a very inactive ladder ._.

    I don't see why people say this was amazing. It was only slightly above aver- oh wait, I forgot! Slightly above average Gen. warstory = amazing.

    Gen. Empoleon: Post in it damn it! Gen. Empoleon: <3
    Fine jeez! =D
    Really great warstory, even though I have never fought ubers I understood it completely. Like everyone else though, I wish one of your non-uber theory-ish pokemon was (were?) in it.


    ^Just because I am nitpicky about that kind of thing.

    I wish I could battle in Ubers well (or at all >_<) because then we could have an epic match!

    Well, it just annoys me when people read the story and don't comment it. It feels like my hard work wasn't appreciated.

    Though thank you all for putting up with me and my shameless advertisement on the Shoddy chat. It means a lot.

    I like the commentary that this story has along with the Darkria and Palkia finish. Keep up the good work.

    not enough longterm thinking for my tastes, considering you knew the guy's team beforehand.

    so I guess I'll have to settle for great predictions. good job on the entertaining read

    I never get around to having epic matches or making a decent Uber team.
    I'm in K-diddy's boat.
    Although I did just edge you out that one time...
    But it seems the less skilled players have more chances of emerging victorious against old veterans in Ubers than in OU. Weird...
    Anyway, nice warstory.

    I usually don't enjoy the stories involving already knowing the other player's team.

    However, this proved a treat, great job, I can't say this enough. Your warstories and the Battle Tower thread are the only thing I really read in Stark anymore.

    Heh Amazing read! A few comments though

    *targets panamaxis
    Uhh...Palkia's faster than MixQuaza even without a Scarf?

    IIRC Draco Meteor does about 63% max, so unless Gen placed some SDef EVs you're just unlucky

    Ummm Surf does more damage to Dialga than Ice Beam?

    Why does Focus Blast keep on hitting? >:(

    *switches target to Gen Empoleon
    One thing that kinda puts me off is that you weren't as creative as you were last time. Last time you had Parasect, and now it's bog standard >:(

    Nah don't worry I still like your warstory ^_^ Congratulations once again for writing an enterntaining read.

    EDIT: What? How's this in the archive already...
