The battle was tied at 3-3 last night, when we got the exit bug. I agreed to rematch, but he had left something out that was crucial to what would have happened.
IHe never mentioned that his Alakazam was at half HP instead of full. THe Alakazam had been knocked to 50% by a Dugtrio Earthquake before KOing it. The situation was:
Nearly full Starmie (above 250 HP, below 300)
Half paralyzed Persian
A HALF Alakazam, whereas he led me to believe he had a full one.
A full Tauros
Here is how the battle would have progressed:
Persian Slashes Chansey, KOing it.
Scenario 1: Tauros comes out
Persian gets Tauros to 36% by Slashes before fainting.
Alakazam comes in, Psychics Tauros to KO.
His half Kazam comes in, and a Twave/Toss/Psychic war ensues, with my full Kazam to his half.
If mine wins, I win the battle. Should his win, I have Mie as a backup who is faster thanks to paralyzation. There is a mjaority that I win.
Scenario 2: Alakazam comes out
Alakazam comes out. He Thunderwaves, Recovers, or Psychics. Should he Thunderwave, Persian is still at full, and Kazam is dead thanks to Slash. Should he Psychic, Persian is at half with Kazam dead from Slash. Should he Recover, Kazam is at 30% afterwards and Persian at 100% thanks to Slash. Kazam either A. Dies, but not before paralyzing Persian, B. Does some damage to Persian but dies to Slash, or C. Recovers, but falls anyways because Slash can do 70% to Kazam whereas Recover only heals 50%. Kazam cannot get an attack in. When Kazam falls, Tauros goes in. Should Persian be paralyzed or at half, it gets in one Slash before falling. Should it be at full, it gets in 2 Slashes before falling. Starmie comes in and cleans up. I win.
The stakes would have been much different had his Alakazam been full. What do you think?
