I feel epically compelled to say it- Your Smogcast has given me reason to live again. I don't know why I never listened to it before, but by the Beard of Zeus, it's brilliantly entertaining.
(And I had the same thought at the same moment during Ep. 6 in regards to Volt Change hitting an Electivire.)
Thank you, and I will now conclude my trolling.
I also love you CIM, apart from when you're an asshole but that's just because you have a penchant for being the Devil's Advocate. Though you've been restraining yourself recently so yeah I love you :)

Oh, I agree, and I may even try it. However, with how common Groudon and Kyogre are in Ubers, Ninetales' defense means it has difficulty finding a chance to set up; if it fails to KO either, it's gonna get smacked with an EQ (which Groudon can come in on freely), Surf, or Water Spout, and die.
