Completed TMan87 versus Hodaka 4v4 Singles

I think I have one less HP and a Special Attack debuff.

IF
Tangrowth is to use a move that inflicts partial trapping, THEN Dig and push back.
IF Leech Seed, THEN Taunt and push back.
IF Bide, THEN initiate action string Swords Dance ~ Substitute (15HP) ~ Toxic

BTW regarding the first sub, if it’s considered illegal, change the activation condition to “Infestation”. Thanks.

Tangrowth leads a shaky assault against Lucario, knocking it out and leaving Hodaka with their last mon! TMan87 has generated an impressive lead, who is going into this final matchup with not just a Tangrowth, but a near perfect counter in Alolan-Muk hanging in the back!

TMan87 brings out the sub abuse to avoid a KO this round while burning up a chunk of Gardevoir's energy at the same time.

Kind of negligible, but the SpA drop is factored as a -2 in flat damage, not BAP (so after the SE multiplier).

"Thinking about it, I could have thoroughly abused your subs. Three guesses as to how. I didn't want to do it though, three guesses as to why! Let's see if you can reflect upon your flaws."

“If you had Taunted me before I taunted you, you could have used Leech Seed and I would struggle.
Also I can’t guess why you didn’t do that.
1. You are sportsmanlike and you don’t want to use such ‘underhanded methods’.
(Definitely not)
2. You just want the battle to end more quickly.
3. You want me to actually stand a chance against you.
(Big Nope)

I'm pretty much done with ASB for the moment, and probably will be for a while with some upcoming CAP stuff. I'm putting this up for a sub ref. Sorry for the excessive johning.

The round ends when a Pokémon is KOed, meaning Gardevoir doesn't use Wish or Chill.

"Alright, now for the answer: I didn't thoroughly abuse your subs because I wanted to time my fainting so I won't have to order first vs a Gardevoir!"


Sending out Kazuma Setou the Alolan Muk!

“Now why didn’t I think of that! That’s genius! But also typical TMan.

“Now Why are we still going to die?”

“Well we could always ask TMan after this... try your best Gardevoir!

Focus Blast ~ Reflect ~ Focus Blast
IF
Taunt AND you are faster, THEN Taunt and push back.
IF you have <10HP AND you have >28EN AND you are not Tormented, THEN Moonblast + Moonblast.
IF damaging Poison-type combination, THEN Protect and push back.

Edit: well looking back the two main reasons why I didn’t have that good of a time was mainly me forgetting Torment, Psychic Terrain and being too afraid to go full-on offensive.

"Full-on offense is usually the way to win here: any EN you still have when your Pokémon faints in wasted EN. Tricks are mostly use to damage control, shift matchups (very important!) or abuse subs. Keep playing, and you'll keep learning. Pay close attention to field effects too, however the ref decides to write them! They could cost you a crucial KO."
"That said, I do wonder why you would go for a combination at low HP since they have negative priority. Subbing for Disable, Torment or Imprison would have been far more useful!"
