    Wow, I never thought Parasect could survive a stone edge from Garcomp! Great warstory, Gen. Empoleon.

    Great warstory Gen. A well played match by both of you. Also, very nice use of Parasect.

    Haha, Parasect is amazing. It took that Chomp like a beast. Well played, both of you.

    Man..what can I say? Awesome warstory. this reminds me of the surfing garchomp warstory, how in both matches an unexpected pokemon / move won the game.

    Well it shows that gimmicks, to a certain degree, can really help you turn the tide of a battle. I love gimmicks =]

    Lol, I think this really demonstrates how great Parasect can be in Ubers, and I'm pretty sure that was the point of this Warstory. I also read your Analysis on Parasect and that also helps people to understand how he can really be used.

    Honestly stop giving him all the credit, because I know for a fact he didn't create that. I've played the guy that used and created Parasect in ubers and it's not Gen.

    Faint, that guy and I created the set together, so don't say some bull shit story. Secondly, he gave me permission to make the article on the set, though I changed minor things. Thirdly, don't troll my Warstory.

    EDIT: When did anyone give me credit?

    Then can I please have this persons name? You should know it if the two of you had created it together.

    His name was 1234gjy, he was banned recently though, which is why I guess I had to make the analysis.

    A great war story as always. Very entertaining, especially when you're stuck at work with nothing to do.

    Good Job man. Did you play this out on shoddy or something ? (sorry if i missed something). Parasect is awesome, love it. And using UU in Uber and OU metagame is so fun.

    To Gen. if you're still viewing this:

    One small error in your comments:

    You first type this:
    However, you later state this:
    Even though you no longer have any Water Spouts.

    Just a small error, but still a great warstory overall.
