When Baton Pass meets stupidity... *Warstory*

Another Day on Shoddy, another mix of tactics and teams.

I thought this would be just an average Ladder Match, but instead it was a mix of things i have never seen before, and i hope they are appreciated.


Fierce Deitys Team:



Viashino Wizard's Team:


Rules: Ladder Match, Sleep Clause, Freeze Clause, OHKO Clause, Evasion Clause, Species Clause, Strict Damage Clause

Viashino_wizard sent out Just a Li'l Off the Top... (lvl 100 Gliscor ?).
Fierce Deity sent out Hippowterus (lvl 100 Hippowdon ?).
Hippowterus's Sand Stream whipped up a sandstorm!
A sandstorm brewed!
Fierce Deity: Hey hey heey
Just a Li'l Off the Top... used Taunt.
Hippowterus fell for the taunt!
Hippowterus used Stealth Rock.
Hippowterus can't use Stealth Rock after the taunt!
The sandstorm rages.

Not the best start, I already have the disadvantage, but the Sandstorm is set up. But i had forgot about Sand Viel on Gliscor though...

---
Just a Li'l Off the Top... used Rock Polish.
Just a Li'l Off the Top...'s speed was sharply raised.
Hippowterus used Ice Fang.
Hippowterus's attack missed!
The sandstorm rages.

Sand Viel somes into play, and I let him get away with x2 Speed scot free.

---
Viashino_wizard: 'Sup.
Just a Li'l Off the Top... used Baton Pass.
Viashino_wizard switched in Sir Isaac (lvl 100 Umbreon ?).
Hippowterus used Ice Fang.
Hippowterus's attack missed!
The sandstorm rages.
Sir Isaac is buffetted by the sandstorm!
Sir Isaac lost 6% of its health.
Sir Isaac's leftovers restored its health a little!
Sir Isaac restored 6% of its health.

He responds, eventually...

But I miss again, due to 95% on the elemental Fangs. I really couldn't believe my luck at this stage...

---
Fierce Deity: You know what, i hate sand viel
Viashino_wizard: *Shrug*
Fierce Deity switched in Pixi (lvl 100 Clefable ?).
Sir Isaac used Mean Look.

I send out my Special wall to outstall his wall, and cripple it. But then I get trapped with the worst possible pokemon out, its not going well...

Sir Isaac used Yawn.
Pixi became drowsy!
Pixi used Thunder Wave.
Sir Isaac is paralysed! It may be unable to move!

Sir Isaac restored 6% of its health.

We swop statuses, and i know if i go to Sleep he will be able to set up on my trapped pokemon. Sandstorm affects neither of us due to Magic Guard and Leftovers, so he won't die to residual damage.

Sir Isaac used Wish.
Sir Isaac made a wish!
Pixi used Cosmic Power.
Pixi's defence was raised.
Pixi's special defence was raised.

If I'm going to be here for a while, i may as well become sturdier, so i stat up, while he also sets himself up for a long haul by Wishing. I can see how long this will last...

---
Sir Isaac is paralysed! It can't move!
Pixi used Cosmic Power.

I wonder by now why i'm not asleep, because of Yawn. This turn is the generic structure for most of the match, so settle in...

---
Sir Isaac is paralysed! It can't move!
Pixi used Ice Beam.
Sir Isaac lost 11% of its health.

Pixi is buffetted by the sandstorm!
Sir Isaac's leftovers restored its health a little!
Sir Isaac restored 6% of its health.

I decide taking him down will make the game much easier, so i make a start. 11% is diappointing, but seeing as he is crippled by paralysis and i have escaped sleep unharmed by glitchy shoddy, i see no reason why i won't take him out with persistance.

And WTF. While i may have escaped sleep, Shoddy has decided to share the status. Then i remember Syncronise, and a facepalm session ensues.

Any damage i had done was happily wiped away by wish. This wasn't going anywhere, but i couldn't switch. He seemed to think the same thing, but he COULD switch...

---
Sir Isaac used Baton Pass.
Viashino_wizard switched in Mona (lvl 100 Smeargle ?).
Pixi used Cosmic Power.
Pixi's defence was raised.
Pixi's special defence was raised.
The sandstorm rages.
Mona is buffetted by the sandstorm!
Mona lost 6% of its health.
Pixi is buffetted by the sandstorm!

Finally, a new pokemon! The chain hasn't been broken, so the x2 Speed from Gliscor is still in place. Smeargle makes me worried, but seeing as this looks to be a BP team it will most likely be a subbing stat upping monster.

---
Pixi is trapped!
Banana292 has entered the room.
Mona used Substitute.
Mona lost 25% of its health.
Mona made a substitute!
Pixi used Ice Beam.
A critical hit!

The sandstorm rages.
Mona is buffetted by the sandstorm!
Mona lost 6% of its health.
Pixi is buffetted by the sandstorm!

A spectator flits in, just as my prediction comes true, a sub is raised. My only real option is to keep using Ice Beam, and i finally get lucky and take down the sub in one blow.

---

Mona lost 6% of its health.
Pixi is buffetted by the sandstorm!
Mona's Salac Berry raised its speed!

He gets down to 1% due to Sandstorm and sub, very lucky for him. Salac berry raises the speed to x3, so even a Shuckle would have the advantage over Clefable.

---
Mona used Baton Pass.
Viashino_wizard switched in Jazzhands! (lvl 100 Mr. Mime ?).
Pixi used Ice Beam.
Jazzhands! lost 19% of its health.

Jazzhands! restored 6% of its health.

Another link in the chain, and i have to say the nicknames so far have been very good, IMO. I am still relentlessly IBing, but now a new pokemon is out, i see no reason why i can't cripple this one, seeing as it is likely to use Calm Mind.

---
Banana292 has left the room.
Jazzhands! used Calm Mind.
Jazzhands!'s special attack was raised.

As i thought, CM. But i can only watch as his team now has x3Spd, and an extra level of Sp.Atk and Sp.Def.

---

Finally, i get to move. I cripple him nicely, but this is possibly the biggest mistake of the match...

(x3 Spd x2Sp.Atk x2Sp.Def)

Pixi got an encore!

He uses Encore, and i am now trapped, and only able to use Thunder Wave, which is useless now he is already Paralysed. NOT GOOD!

I struggle with the buttons but it ain't gonna happen. We both struggle with our status, and sandstrom isn't helpinh due to all the leftovers.

Fierce Deity: Thats evil
Jazzhands! used Calm Mind.
Jazzhands!'s special attack was raised.

Clefable is now a complete dead weight, and he can happily CM up with nothing to stop him. I sum up my situation above.

(x3Spd x3Sp.Atk x3Sp.Def)

Viashino_wizard: Yes. Yes it is.

Helpless, as he racks up the stats. I can only wait for Encore and hope for CH with Ice Beam to do anything at all.

(x3Spd x4Sp.Atk x4Sp.Def)

Jazzhands! used Baton Pass.
Viashino_wizard switched in Just a Li'l Off the Top... (lvl 100 Gliscor ?).
Pixi used Thunder Wave.
It doesn't affect Just a Li'l Off the Top......
The sandstorm rages.
Pixi is buffetted by the sandstorm!

He takes advantage of my uselessness by sending in another Stat upper. I am so fustrated by this point, i have done nothing for nearly 10 turns, while he is about to make an unstoppable sweeper with all those numbers...

---
Encore prohibits the use of this move.
Just a Li'l Off the Top... used Taunt.
Pixi fell for the taunt!
Pixi used Thunder Wave.
Pixi can't use Thunder Wave after the taunt!
The sandstorm rages.
Pixi is buffetted by the sandstorm!

And now he twists the knife, and throws lemon and salt into the wound, but using Taunt. Now Clefable can only do that which is hardly seen on Shoddy, and Struggle for its life, while he is free to stat urrrp.

---
Viashino_wizard: This is eviler.
Just a Li'l Off the Top... used Rock Polish.
Just a Li'l Off the Top...'s speed was sharply raised.

Struggle will kill me WAY before it kills him, so he happily makes himself even more powerful. WHats more, Sand Viel is in play, so i doubt Ice Beam would hit him even IF i could use it...

(x5Spd x4Sp.Atk x4Sp.Def)

Fierce Deity: Yay, i am encored into a move i cannot use

Two major things. Out comes Umbreon again, and Taunt finally wears off, leaving Clefable in a sorry state.

Pixi's encore ended.

Out comes the CM user again. I'm not really sure why he did this, i suppose switching to Umbreon the turn that Taunt wore off stopped his CM user being damaged...

As for the stats i am keeping track here, because i really did forget what he had under his belt by now...

---
Fierce Deity: Now i guess its an Electrivire
Fierce Deity: And i can only use Thunder Wave

I wonder how much worse my situation could be, but he informs me not to worry. I see how much Sp.Def he has by the pathetic damage Clefables only attack did. Luckily he couldn't stat up any more, due to status.

Another Encore, but not as evil as the last one, because i am trapped on Ice Beam, which may actually have an EFFECT ON SOMETHING!

Normally Ice Beam would do a lot more, but he does have x4Sp.Def. I'm not sure why he switched in a pokemon x4 weak to ice in the first place, i imagine he might be PP stalling...

Just a Li'l Off the Top... used Baton Pass.

And finally, out comes the fearsome end of the chain, Dr Octapussy. (or w/e). I waste a turn because of Para, and he has a Suction Cap pokemon with x5Spd, x4Sp.Atk, x4Sp.Def. I hope that my Special Wall can stand up to it...

It does survive, but it does shit good to me, my move only taking 4% off. But luckily sandstorm is chipping away at Octillery, so maybe residual damage can save me.

---

Fierce Deity: A good pokemon to pass to

(5-6)

He FINALLY takes down Clefairy, allowing me to stir the duldrums up a bit. It looks like Life Orb is in place, so maybe residual damage will work quicker than i thought...

---
Fierce Deity switched in Bathtime, fucker. (lvl 100 Magnezone).

Urrgh. I was hoping the most resistant pokemon in the game could stand up to Octillery, but i had mislead myself about the immense movepool that the 8 legged beast commands, and i get flamed.

(4-5)

I decide only Lady Luck (or MotherFucker Hax) can save me now, so i send in the big guns. As my luck/hax/jammy git/sodness would have it, i was right, and i whip out Garchomps STAB move, doing much less than i had though...

---
Viashino_wizard switched in Just a Li'l Off the Top... (lvl 100 Gliscor ?).
Fierce Deity: Of course, Sand Viel is also EVIL

Just a Li'l Off the Top... restored 6% of its health.

I can see that this worried him, so i sent in Hippowdon, based on the fact that he had been swapping like crazy all match, some spikes or rocks would be handy. Rocks first. But then out comes Gliscor, and i fear a repeat of the first turn...

---
Just a Li'l Off the Top... used Baton Pass.
Viashino_wizard switched in Hammer Time! (lvl 100 Medicham ?).
Hippowterus used Ice Fang.
Hammer Time! lost 30% of its health.

Hammer Time! lost 6% of its health.

So i don't use rock, i charge in with IF. A wise choice, seeing as his backup plan has come into play, which now has x2Spd, due to much Polishing the turn before...

---

It's super effective!
Hippowterus lost 45% of its health.

Garchomp, infuriated by the Batman attack, keeps hammering the wizard team with his meaty claws, and the damage done by little Clef is enough to send them all down.

A combination of sandstorm and raw power shown by Garchomp wins the day, despite a phenomenal cock up by me at the beginning.


Props:
  • CB Garchomp is a mighty beast
  • Sandstorm + Sand Veil + Luck
  • My opponent, for a fantasticly different game.
Slops:
  • Letting my opponent set up a incredible BP chain on me
  • Me, i let Clefable be manipulated until it was as useful as second hand toilet paper.

It's always nice to see somebody beat a Baton Pass team, even though your opponent totally wasted Smeargle.

Was this story approved though? If you win, it needs to be mod approved before posting.
 
I dunno who the mods are, or when to contact them, but if they see this thread, and like it, it will most likely stay.

If not, it will be a Short Time Only Warstory.

dw, i'll get it approved and it will be read by the masses.
 
You "escaped" sleep because you were paralyzed thanks to Umbreon's Synchronize ability, statusing you with Thunder Wave before Yawn can take effect.
 
You don't need mod aproval anymore apparently. I guess they got tired of being PMed.

I liked this story. I enjoyed seeing a Baton Pass team lose, as once they get you trapped its not so much a game as a slow slaughter.
 
I think the reason your opponent sent in mr. mime once again is to encore clefable's thunderwave one more time. Too bad mr. mime was fully paralyzed or he could have switched back to gliscor and taunt clefable to death.

Nice comeback with CBChomp, but if it wasn't for luckhax you would've been wasted. Octillery woulda died eventually but it woulda taken a big chunk of your team.

Banned deucer.
I don't get why people are so enamored with Octillery as a Baton Pass chain recipient. A good Baton Pass chain should have a Smeargle with Ingrain anyways, and Octillery is both horrifically slow and not particularly powerful. Additionally, Baton Pass has too many threats to deal with in D/P to afford to have two recipients.
 
You basically pulled this win out of your ass with that Sand Evil hax. I'd put that under Slops if I were you.

It's nice to see Baton Pass Chains work in D/P for once, though.

Edit: I agree with Great Sage on this one. Why don't you just give something Taunt? Octillery can't be Phazed, true, but those "meh" Defenses and Speed require you to pass a lot of stat boosts to it, which kinda defeat the point. If you want an anti-Phaze BP recipient, I'd go with Soundproof Exploud, who has Roar immunity and a movepool to beat up standard walls.
 
I fought this team the other day too. Frankly, I am surprised you had such a tough time of it...my CM Mismagius Swept 6-0 lol.

All the diots who have made a comment about getting it approved:

YOU DO NOT NEED TO GET A WARSTORY APPROVED!!!!!!

EVER

so never again say that in a warstory comment...ever...ever...again.
 
Ever? In the past you had too get approval, and for good reason. From your signup date you should remember SOME of the spam we used to have from shitty warstories in here... Check some of the archived warstories with notes of approval by admin "xyz."

Decent story, I've played this person before (or at least a team similar) when I was running a taunt floatzel that I swapped into an umbreon mean look. Pretty much I set up my own bulk up baton pass setup and beat them at their own game lol. As an earlier poster noted, why the hell do people use such a shitty pokemon at the end of their chain (Octillery)?
 
Terrible war story the guy using baton pass let all get twave ice beam wear down his team i alot. also has no physical poke counter/ way to deal with em. Life orb octilleray is not bad but horificate receiver for baton pass even with suction cups

Octillery is great! Excellent attack stats, great Special movepool in Surf, Flamethrower, Ice Beam (thats all types neutral except water), and they all are 95 power! Suction cups so he can't get winded away... and speed can be passed very easily. Come on man...

The same can be said for just about everything and anything. Not to mention the fact that Ingrain Smeargle is a pretty standard member of a BP chain, and BP recipients should not be easily walled by anything common (Er... Blissey?)
 
I would like this more if your win wasnt extremely lucky hax.

You did manage to organize and explain this pretty decently but seriously...hax saved you lol.
 
I actually run a Belly Drum Smeargle whose intent is to pass to Medicham.

It slipped my mind at the time, but Gliscor's ability is actually Hyper Cutter.

It was a good match, though I've decided I don't really like playing BP-Chains that much. I think I'll stick to making teams named after Generals from the American Civil War.

Oh come on, Pokemon is very much like Poker, a chaotic blend of luck and skill.

You say that it involves skill, but one of the basic fundamentals of the game is luck, wheter it be CH, Sand Viel, or paralysis. This game shows all of them very well, while also displays one of the other fundamentals, having a team with a system.

And i recommend Viashino to anyone on Shoddy, he kept me very entertained (Y)
 
Why would you Drum-pass to Medicham? I'd pass it to Gallade, if not just for that awesome movepool. I'd rather Close Combat things than High Jump Kick them all day, and I prefer to beat Cresselia down with Night Slash, rather than hope to get lucky with Double-Edge and leave yourself wide open to Dusknoir. But that's just me.

An interesting idea would be to try and pass Heracross a lot of Special Attack and see if he can beat Gliscor with HP Ice.
 
You know, when I saw Magnezone come in against Octillery, I was totally expecting Focus Sash and Mirror Coat. Ever since my computer screwed up and I read Obi's BP team, I've been trying to think of ways to fit a CoatSash Magnezone into a team. If only I had access to Shoddy to test...

Anyway, way to hang in there against the horrors of the BP. I'm glad I didn't play competitively in ADV...
