    Another fast round of this battle, Gajeel the Murkrow, comes in fresh avenging his fallen partner, Staryu. Flood doesn't accomplish much of anything, taking an extra hit then it needs to before fainting. I suppose your opponent having slightly reduced energy is better than nothing...

    If a successful P/E action is used, Hone Claws and push back.
    If Heat Wave is used A2 or A3, use Agility (Evasive) Only On The First Instance and Push actions back.

    You do realise that even if I do nothing at all, Sneasel still takes OP damage? Let's see... Yep, I believe I've found a way, and 14.5% fail rate is what I can take comfortably.

    Someoneelse has lost the momentum in this match, and ZhengTann is gaining it at a rather alarming pace. This shift is momentum occurred when Tann abused a poorly worded substitution in combination with the hefty damage incurred by entry hazards set up very early game. This preparation and clever play has allowed Murkrow is come in and muscle over two weakened opponents without missing a beat.

    Let's nullify the stat drops by switching. Elfman, keep trucking - only thing we need to watch out for is a Protective move.

    IF Larvesta is under the effects of Protective/Evasive moves, THEN use Focus Energy in the first instance and Substitute (20 HP) the second.

    Larvesta's quad weakness to rock is its ultimate undoing. Being pelted by the stealth rocks on switch in and by Numel's repeated use of Ancient Power and diminished its HP to under half in only one round! If next round follows a similar pattern this match will be over very soon.

    Very well, if it's a damage race you want, then a damage race it shall be. (AncientPower deals 16.875 damage, by the way, not 15.75, meaning Larvesta took 51.75 damage last round).

    Someoneelse has borrowed a play from his opponents book, protecting against the hits that would surely knockout Firefly–however Elfman's overwhelming and unrelenting offence is causing both pokemon to tire quickly. The battle is coming quickly to a close, how long can Larvesta last?

    Actually, Elfman-Numel used Flamethrower A3, not AncientPower. Anyway placeholder for my actions here.

    It's been a good match, but tis' time to wrap up. Gajeel, you're in - your STAB hits should be enough to take Firefly-Larvesta out in a flash.

    IF Larvesta uses Endure, THEN replace that action with Toxic and push remaining actions back.
    IF Larvesta is under the effects of Protective / Evasive actions, THEN replace that action with Chill and push remaining actions back.

    With one final switch, Gajeel the Murkrow comes back out to finish the job. Larvesta engages in defensive play to prolong the inevitable. Despite a flame body burn, that is not enough to defeat the Murkrow and Larvesta succumbs to its wounds.

    The Nargacuga reverts to his human form and shakes his opponents hand, he leaves a victor. Someoneelse however is not the loser here, he comes out the battle a much wiser opponent, and you know what they say 'knowledge is power!'

    Just one last correction, if I may - you get extra UC per mon KO'ed in matches the size of 3v3 and above, divided by format (Eg. 4v4 Doubles with 6 KOs would give 6/3 = 3 extra UC). So, you'd actually end up with 11 UC in this match, not just 7. Cheers! And Someoneelse - I'm still stung over that Bide. Well-played.
