Well, I had a pretty fun battle today on TJ's. I wish I could remember the name of the guy who challenged me, but oh well. I didn't get the log, but I'll try and recreate it as best as possible.
I start out with my lovely Victreebel, and my opponent leads Mewtwo. I decide to give Sleep Powder a shot, but go down to a CH Psychic before I get the chance. 6-5.
I send out Clefable. Mewtwo DT's (yep, DTing M2. Fun), as I land a T-wave. Clefable Blizzards, and I quickly realize that that's not going to get me anywhere. Desperate, I send out Duggy and unleash a series of Fissures as M2 continues to DT. The 4th or so one lands, and things are tied back up. 5-5.
Starmie comes out against Duggy, and I switch back to Clefable right away. It surfs me down to 70% or sumthin' like that. I T-wave the incoming Chansey. My set for Clefable was Twave/Blizz/TBolt/HyperBeam. I finally see why I might want to find room for DE or Slam. Well, that Clefable wasn't going to anything to a Chansey, so I send out Duggy as it Minimizes.
Earthquake misses, Ice Beam CHs.
No more Duggy. I'm losing 5-4.
I send out Persian, who I normally don't like sending out until everyone else is dead. But nobody else I had left was going to put up much of a fight, so I was willing to risk a paralyzed Persian.
I Slash and miss a few, and it Minimizes and Softboils. Apearently Persian can't 2HKO Chansey with Slash, or at least needs the damage forumla to swing its way, which surprises me. Well, I CH Hyper Beam (although I'm not sure if the CH was necessary). Persian comes through unscathed
Starmie meets Persian, and, unwilling to risk a T-wave, I switch for Clefable. Starmie Minizes on the switch, and then leaves for Mew, who eats a T-wave.
No more Duggy at this point, so the OHKO isn't an option. Well, depending on too many OHKO's kinda feels cheap anyways, so maybe its for the best. I figure my Ninetales set (FB/CR/Sub/Slam), is perfect for slaying a Par'd Mew. Quite happy I didn't use the Reflecting set I normally do.
Mew SDs while I switch and while I confuse it. Paracon slows it down enough for me to sub and land a Fire Blast, and then Sds once more and breaks the sub. I sub again, reconfuse, and bewtween Mew smaking itself with max attack and Nintales dishing out the Fire Blasts, it goes down pretty quick.
I'm up 4-3.
Starmie comes out, and I still have a Sub up. I Body Slam, CH but no par. It Surfs away the sub. Clefable eats a Surf while switching back in, and then dies to a CH Psychic before getting a chance to land a t-wave.
Raichu comes out. I decide to T-wave. This was probably the toughest call of the battle. If Sandslash came out, I woulda been screwed. But I wanted to par that Starmie if I had the chance. It was stupid though, if it didn't stay in againt Clefable, why would it against Raichu? Well, I made a foolish move, but it didn't matter. He was packing a Golem, not a Sandslash. Surf.
I'm up 3-2.
Zapdos comes out next. It uses Light Screen as I T-wave. I switch back to Ninetales, who gets paralyzed and eats a T-bolt while confusing Zapper. Paracon works long enough for me to Fire Blast it out of the sky.
Starmie comes out and I expect it to Surf Ninetales away. Instead it starts minimizing, so I send out Raichu. I land t-wave, and then the battle ends. I'm not sure if it was exit bug or he just quit, but with a full health Raichu out and a full health Persian in reserve against a 60% par'd 'Mie, I think its safe to claim the win.
Persian + Victreebel + Ninetales + Duggy + Raichu + Clefable >>
Mew + Mewtwo + Chansey + Starmie + Golem + Zapdos
The luck was pretty even. He had three CH kills(although I don't know if Vic' vs M2 should count...) and I had one. As far as the DTs and paracon went, I'd say that went more or less as it should have each way.
Of course, leaving a Chansey in against Persian and a Golem in against Raichu isn't exactly brilliant, but whatever. It's not every day you beat a team of evading legendaries while using "worthless" fire, poison and electric types.
Heh, apologies if I sound like an egotistical, bragging ass here, but I am proud of this win. Just want my moment.
Thank you for your time.
