*sob* ... I lost to a fucking TPMer... 3-0 even... ::runs and hides in his pile of extension cords and makes rest of post hidden from sight::
GolemKong had sent me his log of his fight against Trinity and I looked it over and thought I should switch surf on my Starmie to Ice Beam... but I was lagging and I didn't want to delay any further and I wasn't sure about the opinions others would have if they found out I did this...
So I start out with Starmie against his Exeggutor. On the first turn we exchanged Thunder Wave for Stun Spore.
I switch to Chansey, the only one on my team with ice, and Chansey gets hit by a Psychic dropping her health to 81%. Chansey retaliates the next turn with an Ice Beam and is hit by a Critical Hit Psychic. I quickly choose softboiled to raise my health upto 98% right before Exeggutor explodes... leaving chansey with 2% (19hp IIRC) !!
Givera 6-5 (Things are looking up for my first tourney match)
Trinity removes Exeggutor and replaces it with a Tauros. Knowing that Chansey would die instantly I switch back to starmie hoping I can somehow get a chance for Chansey to recover later on. Starmie takes a Critical Hit Body Slam upon switching in and takes a regular Body Slam at the start of the next round and faints.
Tie 5-5 (Hmm...)
I send out Alakazam and after consulting Windex I choose to Reflect instead of Thunder Wave. Alakazam gains armor and takes 25% damage from Body Slam... and is also paralyzed ~_~ Trinity switches out Tauros for a Rhydon and my Thunder Wave just bounces off. Rhydon uses Earthquake and drop Kazam's health another 40% and Kazam's FPed - no recover this turn...
At this point I click check team to get an idea of who I might be able to send out after Kazam faints. I click back and select Recover knowing it won't do anything and I click 'Go!' forgetting to reset it to attack. I see the View Team screen and think it's because Kazam fainted.
I send out my Tauros and find he's missing 40% of his life and I don't figure out why until Windex points out I switched and I realize what happened ~_~.
I select Tauros to use Blizzard but Trinity switches out Rhydon for a Starmie. At this point I know Starmie will TWave so I mean to send out my Kazam who's already paralyzed but it switches to Rhydon instead. Regardless the TWave bounces off Rhydon's thick skin and I continue.
Knowing a surf (or Ice Beam) is going to come up soon I quick switch to Jynx for the lack of SEness... Starmie paralyzes Jynx on the next round and Jynx is FPed...
Starmie thunderbolts and Jynx is FPed again...
Starmie Thunderbolts again and Jynx hits Starmie with a Lovely Kiss! I quickly set up Reflect while Starmie is asleep and consult Windex for help... I find out now my Jynx moveset is illegal... GolemKong's move suggestion for Jynx was Psychic, Reflect, Lovely Kiss, and RECOVER!!!
After a turn of FP again I pull out Jynx and send out my Tauros again. I use Blizzard expecting a switch like Windex suggested and I get a CH Blizz lowering him to 48%!! WOOT!
His Tauros goes first the next turn and slams me with a Hyper Beam... but I survive again... with 2% HP again and smack him with another blizzard reducing him to 22%.
I consider all the possibilities now trying to find a way I could get Chansey back in with full HP or recover someone else but finally decide killing Tauros is the best solution...
I decide this'll probably be the last kill I get so I make sure it's a good one and smack him with a Critical Hit Hyper Beam while he recharges!! WOOT!!
He replaces with Alakazam.
The next turn I switch to my Alakazam and am greeted by a Psychic. I make the stupid mistake of Thunder Waving instead of using Psychic when I knew he'd switch to Rhydon... he even said he would in IM (probably getting help from someone else too ^_^; but my sound is fucked up and I didn't notice until right after I made my choice.
I leave out Kazam to get trampled by the Rhydon's EQ
Tie 4-4 (Shit... this isn't good)
I send out Tauros and in response he switches in Alakazam (It's a revolving door of Pokemon!! Or however that stupid announcer says it...)
Tauros drops Kazam's HP to 46% before finally dying to a psychic.
I bring in Jynx who is fully paralyzed while Kazam takes his time to recover back upto 96%.
Windex suggests I Ice Beam or Blizzard him and I remind him I don't have IB/Blizz... I've got Recover... I scream profanities at GK who isn't present and plan how to kill him after the battle...
Kazam psychics dropping Jynx's special and Jynx drops Kazam's special with it's own Psychic.
Kazam gets a CH Psychic and Jynx faints
I send out Rhydon and start shoving Earthquakes up Kazam's ass while getting beaten on by Kazam's weakened Psychics.
Trinity sends out Jynx and kisses Rhydon. A psychic later Rhydon is out for the count.
I send out Chansey who falls to a psychic that needs only do 19 damage to win >_<
Trinity wins: 3-0
I'm sorry Gonk...
I'm sorry Uber Pympz...
I'm sorry I cann't do that funky little U to spell out Uber Pympz correctly
Anyways... I suck... a lot... StarCaliber must have been really desperate when he actually accepted me as a substitute...
Atma told me to IM him and offer to be a sub as a joke... I almost freaked out when he said yes...
Well that's my war story... in conclusion I suck... and goats are funny especially when pymped by Pory
<Windex> And a wall is much like Givera!
<Pory> Boring, flat and gets in the way?
