[10:08:53] +Magiquaza: k
[10:09:55] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: hmmm i'm thinking tusk or clodsire
[10:10:36] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: tusk is safe but clod could get a free toxic though it doesn't matter that much on chomp
[10:10:49] +Magiquaza: how does clod take eq
[10:11:18] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: 0 Atk Garchomp Earthquake vs. 0 HP / 252+ Def Clodsire: 266-314 (66.3 - 78.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
[10:11:47] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: tusk to be safe?
[10:11:57] +Magiquaza: huh, I wonder if it can click recover on corv afterward
[10:12:03] +Magiquaza: tusk is safest
[10:12:39] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: knock?
[10:12:40] +Magiquaza: knock?
[10:12:41] +Magiquaza: yea
[10:13:10] +Magiquaza: i'm surprised they didn't click knock
[10:13:27] +Magiquaza: i'd probably assume they go into ghold rn
[10:13:29] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: this set is weird
[10:13:36] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: yeah we could knock again
[10:13:43] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: fc
[10:13:53] +Magiquaza: rock or eq?
[10:14:33] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: i want to switch to volc
[10:14:45] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: they don't seem to have a wbb mon but we could scout for one
[10:15:14] +Magiquaza: they might be clicking np here
[10:15:48] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: +2 0 SpA Gholdengo Shadow Ball vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Volcarona: 211-249 (56.4 - 66.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

[10:16:05] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: we outspeed so it's fine
[10:16:25] +Magiquaza: alright
[10:16:30] +Magiquaza: it can also scout for wbb corv
[10:16:50] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: fiery dance?
[10:17:20] +Magiquaza: sure
[10:17:44] +Magiquaza: they probably click tail here
[10:17:54] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: free wisp
[10:18:27] +Magiquaza: yes
[10:18:36] +Magiquaza: hopefully this isn't libero + rock slide
[10:18:42] +Magiquaza: although even that probably won't ko
[10:19:31] +Magiquaza: this is probably clicking acid spray
[10:19:47] +Magiquaza: would clod be safe?
[10:20:23] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: 0 SpA Iron Moth Fiery Dance vs. 0 HP / 252 SpD Clodsire in Harsh Sunshine: 138-163 (34.4 - 40.6%) -- 50.7% chance to 3HKO after Black Sludge recovery
[10:20:30] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: barely doesn't kill if it gets a fiery dance boost
[10:20:49] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: i'm expecting whirlwind though
[10:21:00] +Magiquaza: I mean, corv kind of works
[10:21:05] +Magiquaza: that reveals wbb though
[10:21:21] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: yeah i'm gonna try clod
[10:21:38] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: alright well now corv
[10:21:50] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: and u-turn
[10:22:31] +Magiquaza: from now on the moth is probably going to click uturn a lot more, hoping to get hands into corv
[10:22:57] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: we could go gholdengo here and try to trick
[10:23:03] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: we don't really need the scarf for anything
[10:24:24] +Magiquaza: and if they click shadow ball then you get a free shadow ball
[10:25:24] +Magiquaza: can you trust them to click u turn here
[10:25:36] +Magiquaza: corv is safest but they might read that
[10:26:14] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: i'm not sure about the hands set
[10:26:24] +Magiquaza: it's probably not av + regen
[10:26:30] +Magiquaza: because they have the chomp
[10:26:31] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: chomp is prob regen
[10:26:33] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: yeah
[10:26:52] +Magiquaza: if it was av they also would have swapped it into the trick
[10:27:35] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: i guess we'll go corv
[10:28:42] +Magiquaza: they don't know that you don't have defog so they'll likely be too scared to set hazards with chomp
[10:30:06] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: i think volc is safest to scout the set
[10:30:15] +Magiquaza: k
[10:30:32] +Magiquaza: later if corv gets a u turn into the hands then clod may get a recover too
[10:30:41] +Magiquaza: i doubt ice punch kills
[10:31:32] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: interesting
[10:31:41] +Magiquaza: wisp
[10:31:42] +Magiquaza: ?
[10:31:44] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: yeah
[10:32:02] +Magiquaza: they prob go moth but wisp is still safest
[10:32:21] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: +6 252+ Atk burned Iron Hands Thunder Punch vs. 252 HP / 224+ Def Fur Coat Volcarona: 137-162 (36.6 - 43.3%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
[10:33:07] +Magiquaza: pain
[10:33:36] +Magiquaza: does either moonblast or eq ko here?
[10:34:13] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: +6 252+ Atk Life Orb Iron Hands Drain Punch vs. 252 HP / 196+ Def Florges: 359-421 (99.7 - 116.9%) -- 93.8% chance to OHKO
[10:34:22] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: it heals off of great tusk
[10:34:25] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: gotta go ghold
[10:34:38] +Magiquaza: sac?
[10:34:43] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: shadow ball is a roll
[10:35:15] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: now tusk again
[10:35:47] +Magiquaza: knock or rocks
[10:36:00] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: rocks
[10:36:00] +Magiquaza: rocks will be great for moth throughout the rest of the game
[10:36:57] +Magiquaza: knock?
[10:36:59] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: ye
[10:37:20] +Magiquaza: this looks like hardghold for them...
[10:38:04] +Magiquaza: spin or hardcorv
[10:38:10] +Magiquaza: spin + eq probably won't ko
[10:38:54] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: i'm thinking eq here
[10:39:08] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: idk if it has coverage
[10:39:15] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: and it's max hp pretty sure
[10:39:18] +Magiquaza: it can't really kill corv can it?

[10:39:51] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: just gonna eq to scout coverage
[10:39:57] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: swap to corv after
[10:40:57] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: they're gonna switch probably so u-turn?

[10:43:35] +Magiquaza: uturn ig?
[10:44:04] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: it's probably mono sball so we could go clod to recover then go gholdengo
[10:44:16] +Magiquaza: clod takes 2?
[10:44:20] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: yeah
[10:45:17] +Magiquaza: ghold?
[10:45:25] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: if we're greedy we can spikes

[10:46:00] +Magiquaza: yes ghold
[10:46:17] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: we could go back to clod to get a toxic

[10:46:24] +Magiquaza: they can't touch you...
[10:46:31] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: they're gonna switch

[10:58:25] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: roll
[10:58:29] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: ignore the chance
[10:58:38] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: shadow ball doesnt 2hko so we can spam eq if it doesnt kill
[10:59:00] +Magiquaza: they just ff?

[13:23:40] +NottaDoc: yeah just hit it ig.
[13:23:52] +Magiquaza: ok they can still miss
[13:23:54] +Magiquaza: ...
[13:24:37] +Magiquaza: drag?
[13:24:44] +NottaDoc: yeah
[13:25:03] +NottaDoc: we just won't get burned
[13:25:03] +Magiquaza: i mean, we can't do much this game
[13:25:22] +Magiquaza: vs
[13:25:38] +Magiquaza: ggs
[13:26:12] +Magiquaza: we were fortunate with the original miss but our rng plummeted afterwards
[13:26:12] ★Kinetic1000 ♆: that crit and miss sucked
[13:26:18] +Magiquaza: yeah
[13:26:42] +Magiquaza: if it didn't flinch we had a chance
[13:27:14] +NottaDoc: we probably should have gone tusk instead of corv first
[13:27:23] +Magiquaza: yeah
[13:27:35] +Magiquaza: corv was better defensively into their team, could take chiyu and roost
[13:27:53] +Magiquaza: but it shouldn't have mattered without flinch
[13:28:16] +NottaDoc: mhm
