"Looks like we're going to need a better resolution for this."
@ Lucky Egg
Brick Break - Waterfall - Brick Break

IF
Porygon is under the effects of a Protective/Evasive move, THEN use Dragon Dance that action and push back, but only once.

IF Porygon is under a Substitute when you would act, THEN use Superpower that action and push back, but only once.

Eh, Vrin and his hard disk again? Well, I guess I wouldn't mind, but it is seriously difficult challenge for an LC mon. Not like Pokemons learn programming language these days... Ecrevisse-Corphish tries for the straight-up damage race, but growing attached to the Conversion2 tactic, Vrin made C-Porygon changed types again, after dealing a Download-boosted Solar Beam that deals surprisingly huge damage!

Wait, instead of going behind a Substitute, couldn't C just raced ahead for damage? Not even Ecrevisse' Brick Breaking Waterfalls could be equivalent or Superpowered!! Still, I suppose these gimmicks will continue to aid Vrin, until faced with what is known as "absolute power"....

Porygon activated Download!

IF Corphish uses a successful P/E move, THEN Recover the first instance and Sharpen the second instance, and push back.

I should have used Superpower A3, unless I'm bad at subs. Oh well.

Fairy typing means I have absolutely no super-effective moves. Crying begins.

Waterfall - Endeavor - Waterfall

you die THEN I'm sorry

Desperate to have something to prove to her Trainer for all their Endeavours, Ecrevisse tried again for a Waterfall, which nearly took down C's Substitute, but failed. Vrin on the other hand, ordered for a full-on damage race this time, which C won handily. Now the question is, can C continue on without a crash as Penelope seeks to avenge her fallen teammate?

Action 1:
Corphish used Waterfall!
RNG Roll (CRIT) [<=625 CRIT]: 5251/10000 (NO)

[9+(6-3)]*1.5+(1*2) = 20 damage (Corphish)
-7 energy
Corphish used Endeavour!
(58-20.5)/2 = 19.25 damage ~ 0 damage (Porygon)
Porygon's Substitute faded!
Other changes: Substitute 3HP (Porygon)
-18.833 energy

Action 3:
Corphish used Waterfall!

Penelope? Avenge? It's still Fairy-type, of course she can't. But, we can try our hardest to prevent spam.
@ Exp. Share
Torment - Thunder Wave - Psychic

IF
Porygon uses Recover, THEN change that action to Calm Mind, and push back.
 
#10
Substitute (15) ~ Ice Beam ~ Thunder Wave

No reason not to try and get the speed advantage. Maybe straight-up damage race would be better, but screw it, at least this leaves me without too many useful moves Tormented next round.

It seems like while Penelope tries to utilize Dun Moch to wreck havoc on C, The hard-disk-manisfestation simply goes through it unscathed, being an emotionless machine. Vrin, on the other hand, uses Substitute for a second time - a rare event in LC matches - as a rote Soresu response. Or rather, it seems like the Soresu response, because Vrin is more of a Djem So fighter. A single Ice Beam went through to blast Penelope to great effect, but fatigue has also taken its toll, as C's batteries are running low.

This round is being relatively simple and boring, with C going into a slightly Chilly reboot. Penelope wisely used the latency between shutdown and restart to nail some Calm meditation, the better to attack and defend against the supercomputer. Still, that paralysis is an unknown factor waiting to happen, and Murphy's Law gets pretty close to happening in this match...

Those Calm Mind boosts are... Very troubling. Not much I can do about that, though, I'm afraid.

Thunderbolt ~ Ice Beam ~ Thunderbolt

Not like I'll win this damage race, but I'll make it easy for Honedge to mop up, hopefully.
