Lost vs. Zamrock, gg friend.

For those asking why the hell didn't I BP the Feraligatr: my thought process was Clefable could have had a fire move which my Scizor wouldn't have lived due to my spread.

+2 84 Atk Scizor Bullet Punch vs. 252 HP / 160 Def Clefable: 246-290 (62.4 - 73.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
0 SpA Clefable Flamethrower vs. 248 HP / 176 SpD Scizor: 248-292 (72.3 - 85.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

I felt it could have had a fire move because as we all know, sand teams are rather weak to Azu and such, making me think Latios had t-bolt over hp fire. Either way, probably should have grew a set of balls and clicked it.

I also thought it was Zard-Y

Not making excuses at all, just fleshing out my analysis. Good game and GL to your team. Crit was a little unfortunate, but I could have also clicked bp.

Edit: I choked. Didn't realize damage calc didn't list technician as the default. Big sorry to my team and myself for looking like a dumbass.
 
it's not hax if i tell you it's going to happen

won gg
Apparently some have approached me about how they tested in-game to confirm that Future Sight isn't supposed to receive Choice Specs boosts if the user switches out so the end result is this calc:

252+ SpA Slowking Psycho Boost vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Cobalion: 235-277 (72.7 - 85.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Psycho Boost is adjusted to 120 base power, which is the same as Future Sight (I would've done Psychic but some people might not read this). What that means is Cobalion would've lived to stick around and check more of your team, which it had a good match up against, especially since I had X-Scissor for Slowking.

Before I posted this, people were saying it doesn't even matter if there is a sim bug, which I personally believe is a silly policy... like how am I supposed to know about these bugs? It's not like this is GSC where most of the sim bugs are known. Kinda sucks to lose to crits and flinches, but it's Pokemon so I get it. But on top of that, I ate a loss because of a glaring sim bug, which isn't Pokemon. Just saying.

We had a sim bug happen to us a couple weeks ago where Unaware doesn't work in double battles. We were unaware of the bug, I think at this point we should just accept bugs in the sim exist. Shit happens.
 
Here's another reminder that daylight savings time is now in effect.
If you are trying to make your scheduled time, keep in mind things might have been moved up an hour.

I've never heard of this bug so I tested it myself on Pokémon OR and... It got the Choice Specs boost.

Nevermind if I switch out the specs user I don't get the boost sorry

Bugs don't get fixed if they don't get reported :(
