Gen 2 Druidcruel and his explosive friends (a not so serious GSC warstory)

#1
So, I helped this guy a bit (a lot) with his GSC team, he was actually new to the meta and just had a few battles, one versus me, where he beat me. I got really wrecked by this new player who hasn’t played gen 2 a lot before, and I used to top the (I admit, pretty shitty) ladder on PS! So I thought, you know, fuck this, I’m going 4 exploders, lax and some last poke sweeper, I decided for Tentacruel. After a long, well thought team bulding process of about 10 minutes my team looked pretty solid to go:



A few notes: Gengar is holding a Scope Lens, Cloyster is clamp explosion with a silk scarf (the gen 2 item does not exist on PS!), Exeggutor is Quick Claw (which actually helped a lot in this battle) and Snorlax is Lovely Kiss with Curse, Fire Blast and Return. Because real men don’t need Rest.


I already knew his team, but I tailored this team a bit so I can fight against other people for fun sometimes. If you are man enough to take my challenge, feel free to do so.

Battle between Bedschibaer and ScarfedElectrode started!

Go! Gengar!

ScarfedElectrode sent out Raikou!


Alright, time to start, I knew he would lead with his electric type (I told him electrics are generally good leads). And that is pretty much what I wanted to neutralize the most, to ensure Tentacruel can clean up what is left of his team after my whole team blew up.

Turn 1
The foe's Raikou used Thunderbolt!
A critical hit! Gengar lost 87.3% of its health!
Gengar used Hypnosis!
The foe's Raikou fell asleep!

Turn 1 crit, a good start, but nothing is over yet, I can still blow up with this, and he probably knows that too.

Turn 2

Bedschibaer: >implying not hacked
ScarfedElectrode withdrew Raikou!
ScarfedElectrode sent out Skarmory!
Gengar used Thunderbolt!
It's super effective! The foe's Skarmory lost 70.3% of its health!
The foe's Skarmory restored HP using its Leftovers!

I guess he realized that Raikou is too important to let die, and went to his Skarmory predicting a explosion – and one of the worst things for an explosion team is weakened a lot.

Turn 3
ScarfedElectrode: fuck that was a bad idea
Bedschibaer: hue
Bedschibaer: i'm not gonna explode on steels mate

ScarfedElectrode: I thought you would explode ;_;
ScarfedElectrode withdrew Skarmory!
ScarfedElectrode sent out Tyranitar!
Gengar used Explosion!
It's not very effective... The foe's Tyranitar lost 33.3% of its health!
Gengar fainted!
angemon151009 left.
Go! Cloyster!

Gengar did its job well, after all. It did not take a mon down, but weakened 2 and statused a very important one.

Turn 4
ScarfedElectrode withdrew Tyranitar!
ScarfedElectrode sent out Starmie!
Cloyster used Explosion!
The foe's Starmie lost 100% of its health!
The foe's Starmie fainted!
Cloyster fainted!
Bedschibaer: hue
ScarfedElectrode: lel
ScarfedElectrode: I can't handle this

ScarfedElectrode sent out Raikou!
Go! Exeggutor!

The Starmie was coming from miles away, and he thought I would not be ready to explode on a normal resist.

Turn 5
ScarfedElectrode withdrew Raikou!
ScarfedElectrode sent out Tyranitar!
Exeggutor used Psychic!
It doesn't affect the foe's Tyranitar...
The foe's Tyranitar restored HP using its Leftovers!

The foe's Tyranitar used Rock Slide!
Exeggutor lost 31.0% of its health!
The foe's Tyranitar restored HP using its Leftovers!

I always made fun of people using quick claw, but let’s be honest there is nothing more hilarious than KOing a mon because it activated twice

Turn 7
Bedschibaer: top
Exeggutor's Quick Claw let it move first!
Exeggutor used Giga Drain!
It's super effective! The foe's Tyranitar lost 27.0% of its health!

The foe's Skarmory slept and became healthy!
Exeggutor used Psychic!
It's not very effective... The foe's Skarmory lost 23.4% of its health!
The foe's Skarmory restored HP using its Leftovers!

I couldn’t stop the Skarm from resting anyways, so why not hope for a special defence drop?

Turn 9

The foe's Skarmory was burned!
The foe's Skarmory restored HP using its Leftovers!

Well, sucks for you I guess. Not like the burn mattered, but it’s still nice to know this thing won’t do any damage soon.

So, this was my warstory, I know it’s not a dead serious competitive match, but it’s fun to see how gimmicky teams can beat serious ones. And this battle tought me how fun it is to just play recklessly.

Make sure to read my next warstory coming up soon – 5 exploders and a sweeper.
