alive VS. HAILTOME [OU warstory]

It was like any day on the CaP server, and I thought that I was just in for a relaxing battle with one of my fellow server goers. I was quite wrong.

  • This is my first warstory and, besides RMTs, my first time making an OP, so I'm sorry if it's a little shaky.
  • After it has been shown once I have taken out leftover/black sludge recovery
  • I know that some people don't like bright colors so I'll try and just stick to mellow colors.
  • My actions and the affects of my attacks will be blue and bold
  • His actions and the affects of his attacks will be red and bold
  • My comments will be black and bold
  • Any other things will be green and bold
Rules: Ladder Match, Sleep Clause, Freeze Clause, OHKO Clause, Evasion Clause, Species Clause, Strict Damage Clause
alive sent out Roserade (lvl 100 Roserade ?).
HAILTOME sent out Tecnologic (lvl 100 Porygon2).
Porygon2 traced Roserade's Natural Cure!
HAL9000: BEGIN!!!
alive: nice timing

Hmm. The start of this match is getting me a little worried. I’ve played with Porygon2 lead before and I know what its capable of. I immediately thought that it had mirror coat witch would ruin Roserade trying to use sleep powder. He also could pack thunderwave, discharge, or ice beam which could be very detrimental to Roserade. I had forgotten that Roserade also had natural cure, if I had remembered then I might have been a little more keen on staying in, but this early in the game I didn’t want to risk it.

alive switched in Swampert (lvl 100 Swampert ?).
Porygon2 used Thunder Wave.
It doesn't affect Swampert...

It looks like I made the right choice, now that I knew which set he was running I decided to take the turn to set up.

HAILTOME switched in Cold as Ice (lvl 100 Glaceon ?).
Swampert used Stealth Rock.
Pointed stones float in the air around your foe's team!

I don’t see Glaceon much, so it was kind of hard to make a move here. Since I didn’t know what it could pack, I decided that the best route was attacking.

Glaceon used Fake Tears.
Swampert's special defence was harshly lowered.
Swampert used Earthquake.
Glaceon lost 35% of its health.
Glaceon's leftovers restored its health a little!
Glaceon restored 6% of its health.

Now I was really nervous. I didn’t know how strong Glaceon could hit and I made me weary. I still needed two earthquakes to kill and in that time it could easily have KO’d Swampert.

alive switched in Metagross (lvl 100 Metagross).
Glaceon used Wish.
Glaceon made a wish!

I decided to bring in Metagross. I thought that I could KO him with a choice banded bullet punch. Lets see about that…

Metagross used Bullet Punch.
It's super effective!
Glaceon lost 67% of its health.
Glaceon used Fake Tears.
The wish came true!
Glaceon restored 50% of its health.

Darn, I came up 10% short. And wish leaves him at 60%, but its okay because I know that bullet punch will KO!

Glaceon used Protect.
Glaceon protected itself!
Metagross used Bullet Punch.
Glaceon protected itself!


Or not. Well his health is 66% and my bullet punch did 67% so let hope for the best.

Metagross used Bullet Punch.
It's super effective!
Glaceon lost 63% of its health.
Glaceon used Wish.
Glaceon made a wish!

I guess that 67% was when the random number was high.

Glaceon used Protect.
Glaceon protected itself!
Metagross used Bullet Punch.
Glaceon protected itself!
The wish came true!
Glaceon restored 50% of its health.

Alright, I got you now! There’s nowhere for you to run!

HAILTOME switched in Adam freeland (lvl 100 Umbreon ?).
Pointed stones dug into Umbreon.
Umbreon lost 12% of its health.
Metagross used Bullet Punch.
Umbreon lost 26% of its health.
Umbreon’s leftovers restored its health a little!
Umbreon restored 6% of its health.

Oh yeah… he can still switch. When I saw that bullet punch only did 26% I got a little scared. I didn’t want to be trapped and have something like Heatran come in.

alive switched in Skarmory (lvl 100 Skarmory ?).
Umbreon used Wish.
Umbreon made a wish!
Look at that, another wisher. This team must have serious healing problems *noted*. Now that I have Skarmory in I feel pretty safe knowing that Umbreon can’t really do anything to me, I took the opportunity to set up more hazards.

HAILTOME switched in That is all. (lvl 100 Starmie).
Pointed stones dug into Starmie.
Starmie lost 12% of its health.
Skarmory used Spikes.
Spikes were scattered everywhere!
Spikes were scattered around the foe's team!
The wish came true!
Starmie restored 12% of its health.

Oh no. Starmie is this team’s worst nightmare. When I saw him my heart sunk a little. This team is mostly based around getting up all the hazards and letting Wobb/Zappy stall them to death, but I completely screwed when a spiner comes in.

alive switched in Swampert (lvl 100 Swampert ?).
Starmie used Rapid Spin.
Starmie blew away the spikes!
Swampert lost 2% of its health.
Swampert's leftovers restored its health a little!
Swampert restored 2% of its health.
Knowing it would use rapid spin I switched to the best thing this team would call a Starmie counter.

HAILTOME switched in Adam freeland (lvl 100 Umbreon ?).
Swampert used Earthquake.
Umbreon lost 27% of its health.

Once again I am a bit nervous about the lack of damage done but I decided to try from the other spectrum.

Umbreon used Wish.
Umbreon made a wish!
Swampert used Hydro Pump.
Swampert's attack missed!

Disappointed by my Hydromiss I went back to my pervious attack.

Umbreon used Curse.
Umbreon's speed was lowered.
Umbreon's attack was raised.
Umbreon's defence was raised.
Swampert used Earthquake.
Umbreon lost 17% of its health.
The wish came true!
Umbreon restored 50% of its health.

Bleh! Curse. Im going to have to think a little harder if I want to kill this one. I don’t know what I made this next move knowing that cursers would probably focus more base special defence.

Swampert used Hydro Pump.
Umbreon lost 21% of its health.
Umbreon used Curse.
Umbreon's speed was lowered.
Umbreon's attack was raised.
Umbreon's defence was raised.

At this rate I’m not going to do any damage to him so I’m just going to get him out of the way for now.

alive switched in Skarmory (lvl 100 Skarmory ?).
Umbreon used Curse.
Umbreon's speed was lowered.
Umbreon's attack was raised.
Umbreon's defence was raised.
Like the last time, I feel good with Skarmory in, although I was expecting the switch to Starmie so whirlwind would hopefully let me scout his team more.

Umbreon used Protect.
Umbreon protected itself!
Skarmory used Whirlwind.
Umbreon protected itself!

Protect? Figures, I guess he’s all about get health however he can. Now I’m using WW for realz.

Umbreon used Payback.
It's not very effective...
Skarmory lost 9% of its health.
Skarmory used Whirlwind.
HAILTOME switched in FEAR (lvl 100 Yanmega ?).

Heh, even with three curses payback only does 9%, looks like he has an obstacle too. He has Yanmega, which would further explain the need of Starmie. I guess I’ll switch into something that, I think, can take both of Mega’s main attacks.

alive switched in Zapdos (lvl 100 Zapdos).
Zapdos is exerting its pressure!
Yanmega used Air Slash.
Yanmega's attack missed!

I’m thankful for the miss but I don’t know it would have had too huge of an impact.

HAILTOME switched in Adam freeland (lvl 100 Umbreon ?).
Zapdos used Substitute.
Zapdos lost 25% of its health.
Zapdos made a substitute!
Zapdos's leftovers restored its health a little!
Zapdos restored 6% of its health
Damn that Umbreon! I need to find a way to get rid of him quick! Substitute seemed kind of like a waste after I used it, I probably should have just used discharge.

Zapdos used Discharge.
Umbreon lost 19% of its health.
Umbreon used Curse.
Umbreon's speed was lowered.
Umbreon's attack was raised.
Umbreon's defence was raised.

Once again, my attacks are futile. I guess I should just stall some more with Skarmory until I can figure out how to beat this guy.

alive switched in Skarmory (lvl 100 Skarmory ?).
Umbreon used Curse.
Umbreon's speed was lowered.
Umbreon's attack was raised.
Umbreon's defence was raised.
Thinking about how I didn’t want to be playing this match for the next 30 minutes, I try something that could possibly throw the game in my favor.

Umbreon used Protect.
Umbreon protected itself!
Skarmory used Brave Bird.
Umbreon protected itself!

But he protects, and now that he knows I was planning on BB’ing I have no choice but to get rid of that awful set up he’s done.

Umbreon used Curse.
Umbreon's speed was lowered.
Umbreon's attack was raised.
Umbreon's defence was raised.
Skarmory used Whirlwind.
HAILTOME switched in Cold as Ice (lvl 100 Glaceon ?).

I still need Skarmory to wall Umbreon so I’m not going to go for the crit brave bird, although, it would have been awesome.

alive switched in Wobbuffet (lvl 100 Wobbuffet ?).
Glaceon used Ice Beam.
Wobbuffet lost 35% of its health.
Wobbuffet's leftovers restored its health a little!
Wobbuffet restored 6% of its health.

After I did this I got a little mad at my self, mostly for mot sending Wobb in on Starmie which would have eliminated that threat. But oh well.

Glaceon used Fake Tears.
Wobbuffet's special defence was harshly lowered.
Wobbuffet used Encore.
Glaceon got an encore!

Good, I got an encore on fake tears. I’m hoping that this will be the turning point when Metagross come and (meteor)mashes everyone’s brains out.

alive switched in Metagross (lvl 100 Metagross).
Glaceon used Fake Tears.

HAILTOME switched in Tecnologic (lvl 100 Porygon2).
Porygon2 traced Metagross's Clear Body!
Metagross used Meteor Mash.
Porygon2 lost 68% of its health.

Hmm… I can’t remember if Metagross is faster than Pory2 or not and I’m afraid of thunder wave crippling me with para and thunderbolt doing too much damage. It’s to risky to go forward with it since I need Meta to take down Umbreon.

alive switched in Swampert (lvl 100 Swampert ?).
Porygon2 used Recover.
Porygon2 restored 50% of its health.

well, he predicted my switch and got a big heal, which makes Swampy’s job harder.

HAILTOME switched in FEAR (lvl 100 Yanmega ?).
Swampert used Hydro Pump.
Swampert's attack missed!

Another Hydrofailure, I was seriously considering surf.

alive switched in Zapdos (lvl 100 Zapdos).
Zapdos is exerting its pressure!
Yanmega used U-turn.
It's not very effective...
Zapdos lost 13% of its health.
HAILTOME switched in Cold as Ice (lvl 100 Glaceon ?).

He predicted that too, which was making me quite nervous.

Zapdos used Discharge.
Glaceon lost 39% of its health.
Glaceon is paralysed! It may be unable to move!
Glaceon used Ice Beam.
It's super effective!
Zapdos lost 80% of its health.
alive's Zapdos fainted.
5-6:HAILTOME
While this was probably my biggest blunder in the match, something good came out of it. Discharge got the para which means Glaceon is going to get Buffeted by the Wob.

alive switched in Wobbuffet (lvl 100 Wobbuffet ?).
Wobbuffet used Encore.
Glaceon got an encore!
Glaceon used Ice Beam.
Wobbuffet lost 35% of its health.

It's super effective!

HAILTOME switched in Tecnologic (lvl 100 Porygon2).
Porygon2 traced Wobbuffet's Shadow Tag!
4-5:HAILTOME

Wobby already did his job, and it allows me to see what he sends out next, which is pory2.

alive switched in Roserade (lvl 100 Roserade ?).
Roserade used Sleep Powder.
Porygon2 fell asleep!
Porygon2's Lum Berry cured its Sleep!
Porygon2 used Ice Beam.
It's super effective!

I had forgot about Lum berry, but its okay since I survived and got him to sleep. Now lets see if we can’t kill little bastard.

Roserade used Sludge Bomb.
Porygon2 lost 38% of its health.
Porygon2 woke up!
Porygon2 used Ice Beam.
It's super effective!
Roserade lost 36% of its health.

3-5:HAILTOME

Damn, one turn sleep sucks. But this still gives me an opportunity to come in and beat him.

alive switched in Metagross (lvl 100 Metagross).
HAILTOME switched in I r Pwnage (lvl 100 Charizard ?).
Metagross used Meteor Mash.
It's not very effective...
Charizard lost 57% of its health.
During the game I checked Smogon just to see if I could outspeed pory2 with Meta and it turns out I could have, oh well. Why not do it now? Well, HAIL didn’t want that. Out comes Charizard which makes me wish even more that I still had stealth rocks up. But meteor mash is an okay alternative, seeing as it did over half. I don’t really know what kind of Zard it is though so I think that I’ll go to my best Charizard counter.

alive switched in Swampert (lvl 100 Swampert ?).
Charizard used Substitute.
Charizard lost 25% of its health.
Charizard made a substitute!
Charizard's Salac Berry raised its speed!

Looks like BellyZard, I guess I kind of ruined that when I did over half. I’m not too concerned about how much damage he can do to me so I decide to go offensive.

Charizard used Fire Punch.
It's not very effective...
A critical hit!
Swampert lost 33% of its health.
Swampert used Hydro Pump.
It's super effective!
The substitute took damage for I r Pwnage!
Charizard 's substitute faded!

Swampert lost 18% of its health.
Swampert used Ice Beam.
Charizard lost 18% of its health.
HAILTOME's Charizard fainted.
3-4:HAILTOME
He got a crit, but it really didn’t do anything significant. I didn’t want hydro pump to miss again so I went with ice beam because I knew it would kill anyway.

HAILTOME switched in FEAR (lvl 100 Yanmega ?).
alive switched in Skarmory (lvl 100 Skarmory ?).
Yanmega used Bug Buzz.
It's not very effective...
Skarmory lost 45% of its health.
He brings in Yanmega, which I fear now that Zapdos is gone. I brought in the only thing I thought could take a hit from it and it even got severely damaged. I was really considering using brave bird here to try and hurt it bad but thought that if he switched to Starmie then I would be screwed.

HAILTOME switched in That is all. (lvl 100 Starmie).
Skarmory used Roost.
Skarmory restored 50% of its health.

I guessed right.

alive switched in Swampert (lvl 100 Swampert ?).
Starmie used Thunderbolt.
It doesn't affect Swampert...

HAILTOME switched in Tecnologic (lvl 100 Porygon2).
Porygon2 traced Swampert's Torrent!

Porygon2 lost 19% of its health.
Porygon2 used Recover.
Porygon2 restored 50% of its health.
Swampert used Hydro Pump.
Porygon2 lost 33% of its health.

I can see that this isn’t going to work. I think ill mix it up a bit.

Porygon2 used Recover.
Porygon2 restored 50% of its health.
Swampert used Stealth Rock.

Hopefully this will draw out Starmie allowing me to KO it with two earthquakes while it rapid spins.

HAILTOME switched in That is all. (lvl 100 Starmie).
Pointed stones dug into Starmie.
Starmie lost 12% of its health.
Swampert used Earthquake.
Starmie lost 48% of its health.

Starmie used Recover.
Starmie restored 50% of its health.
Swampert used Earthquake.
Starmie lost 47% of its health.

With him being able to recover 3%-5%more health than I can deal and getting leftovers I think this might turn into some serious stall. It did.

For the next ten turns he would recover and I would earthquake, hoping for a crit, for your convenience I cut that part. I would also sometimes send out stealth rock causing him to rapid spin incase of a crit giving me an opportunity to catch him off guard. Neither happened, but he did something to give him a slight edge.

HAILTOME switched in FEAR (lvl 100 Yanmega ?).
Swampert used Earthquake.
It doesn't affect FEAR..
Well, I don’t really have much to switch to seeing as Skarmory takes a lot of damage for Mega’s attack. I decided to just ice beam and hope that if he uses air slash it doesn’t flinch

Yanmega used Air Slash.
Swampert lost 47% of its health.
Swampert used Ice Beam.
It's super effective!
Yanmega lost 69% of its health.

As long as air slash doesn’t flinch Swampert can KO him on the next turn. I was holding my breath at this point.

Yanmega used Air Slash.
Swampert lost 54% of its health.
Swampert flinched!

Man, that sucks. But I don’t really have time to sulk about this now, I feel as though I will need Swampert later so I decide to sacrifice Skarmory to save his blue behind.

alive switched in Skarmory (lvl 100 Skarmory ?).
Yanmega used Air Slash.
It's not very effective...
Skarmory lost 79% of its health.

alive switched in Metagross (lvl 100 Metagross).
Metagross used Bullet Punch.
Yanmega lost 31% of its health.
HAILTOME's Yanmega fainted.
2-3:HAILTOME
The beast is down! But I already know who’s coming in next, and he’ll be a lot harder to beat without Skarm.

HAILTOME switched in Adam freeland (lvl 100 Umbreon ?).

alive switched in Metagross (lvl 100 Metagross).

THE PROPS:
  • metagross for being so great
  • swampert for wreaking starmie and charizard
  • HAILTOME for a great game
THE SLOPS:
  • sleep for only lasting one turn
  • me for not using wobb on starmie
  • this for taking so much of my time
thanks for reading!
 
I think the attack raise basically gave you the game, but it seems that you put the story into a decent format and gave it some thought for your commentary. Not bad at all.

The misplay at the end keeps me from saying this was great, though.
