    Other Smogon Puzzle Hunt 3 [Wrapup]

    AMA part 3: Puzzles in general & other questions! Deusovi: Yes, definitely. It's frustrating when people get stuck, or don't notice something that you thought was obvious. As a puzzle constructor, you want your puzzles to be solved, so when that doesn't happen it can be sad. Backsolving is a...

Level 51: how the heck is chorded straightforward wtf Dogfish44: I can explain how it works within like 3...

    This is a fair idea! I do prize Toxic's ability to deal damage on turns that I heal, since it does actually let Blissey beat some physical attackers it would not really stand a chance against otherwise. But in a world with consistently optimal play and infinite time (mostly to PP stall Ghosts...

    Another day, another disappointing Arcade streak!!!!! Reporting an Arcade streak of 95. I feel obliged to post this because it's a higher streak than my current PB. Same team as the one in this post, and once again I lost to being just off on the board at just the wrong time. Sorry that I...

    Late reply to this because I just saw this post, but as much as Stratos' memory of roomtour games is kind of concerning I do think he has a point regarding the ladder. I'm genuinely not sure how coherent this post is because it's like 3:20am, but when I wake up tomorrow I'll probably read over...

    Pretty unhappy with this run but here we go, for archival purposes! Reporting a completed streak of 80 in the Battle Arcade. (sorry, I was too upset to remember to save a battle video) Team Note, first of all, that items are removed from both sides in the Battle Arcade. This means, notably...
