View Full Version : The Overlord VS Opposite Day


Overlord Drakow
July 28th, 2011, 01:56 AM
Welcome to my first battle report. Very recently, Opposite Day and I had an extremely close match and so I thought it would be worthwhile to share this experience with the competitive battlers of Pokecommunity. A quick thanks to Vrai and Spino's battle report, as it proved to be an invaluable source of information to base my battle report on in other words, I stole their ideas like a boss.

Overlord Drakow sent out VAN'DALGYON! (Hydreigon)
oppoSITE DAY sent out Mienshao!

Most likely it will lead off with Fake Out. Switching to Bronzong is the best bet as this switch could also provide an opportunity to set up Stealth Rock on the following turn.

oppoSITE DAY called Mienshao back!
oppoSITE DAY sent out Scizor!

Overlord Drakow called VAN'DALGYON back!
Overlord Drakow sent out MECHAZOR! (Bronzong)

What! A double switch on the very first turn! How unexpected. He must have taken precaution over the possibility of Hydreigon being scarfed. The double switch has however, revealed the fact that Hydreigon is not scarfed. Regardless, Scizor should not do much damage to Bronzong, therefore let's proceed as planned and use Stealth Rock.

Gyarados will be a tough adversary to handle. Unlikely he will use Taunt so the deduction is that he will either Dragon Dance or attack immediately with Waterfall. With no previous knowledge, a Salamence switch in seems like a decent choice. Intimidate will cut the attack stat down of Gyarados. If it does Dragon Dance though, things will get painful.

Damn. Draco Meteor should be able to send Gyarados packing in one blow. Barring Ice Fang which is rarely seen on Gyarados these days, Salamence should be able to survive any of its attacks.

If Thunder can hit an airborne Pokémon, why the hell can't Draco Meteor? Tempted to switch to Bronzong to cushion the Bounce next turn but will stick with Salamence and get the knock out with Draco Meteor.

NO! What the hell is this! Gyarados should be dead! He must have invested a fair few effort values defensively in order to survive that attack. It is safest to discard Salamence now and revenge knock out that Gyarados.

Not ideal but Haxorus can revenge knock out that Gyarados. He is revealed early on, which is not preferred but OppoSITE DAY is currently in the lead and the need to fight back quickly has come.

The score has been equalized but OppoSITE DAY has the advantage of dictating the momentum of the match. With Scizor active, Magnezone should make a good switch. Most Scizor set up a Swords Dance initially on the switch in, but then Magnezone can knock it out with Hidden Power Fire.

Start of turn 8

http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/back/212.png http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn69/sdacademy/Forums/Post%20Icons/vs.gif http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/shiny/612.png http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh180/che_chazzy/icon/arrow.gif http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/462.png

Tailwind! This was unexpected. No matter, even if it uses Superpower on the following turn, Magnezone should survive and then it can swiftly knock it out.

NO! WHAT THE HELL! That Scizor escaped Magnezone's electromagnetic field! What's more is that Latios under Tailwind checks all three Dragons. This is incredibly bad. The only chance is to stall out the two remaining turns that Tailwind lasts for. Magnezone will have to stay strong for now.

One more turn. That Latios is quite low on health from the Life Orb. Perhaps the team can stall out the Life Orb by switching frequently and having the Pokémon take 'not very effective' attacks. It is worth a shot. To that end, Hydreigon will enter the field once more.

. . . That was to be expected really. At least the Tailwind has run out now. Hydreigon can no longer feint a Choice Scarf due to that double switch in, on turn one. Hydreigon must withdraw. Bronzong will take a Dragon attack with ease and can deal massive damage with Gyro Ball.

Damn that was painful. Latios can at the very least put Bronzong on the brink of death with Life Orb surf on the following turn. Switching out to Haxorus is a good decision to take that hit and check Latios.

Recover was not expected but this has probably worked out better. He knows Haxorus is equipped with a Choice Scarf. He should really swap out to Scizor to take that Outrage or Dual Chop. Trapping and killing that Scizor is going to be incredibly tough. Either that Scizor has to kill something and Magnezone comes in for the revenge knock out (which will only work if and only if Tailwind is not active), or double switching Magnezone on the turn he sends Scizor in. Let’s take the gamble and double switch. Magnezone needs to do his job, otherwise the Dragons cannot unleash their full potential.

NO! Tailwind again! No, what the hell! Damn. Going to have to stall the turns out again until the duration of Tailwind ends. It would have been nice if Magnezone had Flash Cannon for this battle. Going to attempt to increase Magnezone's special attack with Charge Beam. If anything, it will give an additional incentive for Latios to knock out Magnezone quickly.

Alright. Magnezone should die next turn and then there will be one turn of Tailwind left. The plan is to send in Scrafty and get a Dragon Dance up. Scrafty will survive a Dragon Pulse from Latios and then the Tailwind will subside, allowing Scrafty to out speed and knock out Latios on the following turn.

Excellent. This is looking good. The extremely scary aspect about Scrafty is that a well played one only needs one Dragon Dance to sweep through a team. If things go well, Scrafty can clean his team up.

DRAKOW used Drain Punch!
It's not very effective...
The foe's Latios lost 13% of its health!
The foe's Latios fainted!
The foe's Latios had its energy drained!
DRAKOW's Attack rose!

DRAKOW restored a little HP using its Leftovers!

oppoSITE DAY sent out Torunerosu! (Tornadus)
Pointed stones dug into the foe's Torunerosu!

Battle recap
3 - 4: Overlord Drakow

OppoSITE DAY's team status:
Mienshao: 100%
Scizor: KO
Gyarados: KO
Latios: KO
Tornadus: 100%
X

Overlord Drakow's team status:
Hydreigon: 100%
Bronzong: 37%
Salamence: KO
Haxorus: 100%
Magnezone: KO
Scrafty: 56%

NO! Tornadus! It will definitely use 'Prankster' Tailwind and sacrifice itself in order for something to revenge knock out Scrafty. Dark Azelf has used this very same tactic to stop Scrafty before, so it is definitely coming. Despite having this knowledge, there is nothing to do which can change this outcome. Will just have to fight on.

Start of turn 21

The foe's Torunerosu used Tailwind!
A tailwind started blowing behind oppoSITE DAY's team!

DRAKOW used Ice Punch!
It's super effective!
The foe's Torunerosu lost 75% of its health!
The foe's Torunerosu fainted!
DRAKOW's Attack rose!

DRAKOW restored a little HP using its Leftovers!
oppoSITE DAY sent out Mienshao!
Pointed stones dug into the foe's Mienshao!

Overlord Drakow's team status:
Hydreigon: 100%
Bronzong: 37%
Salamence: KO
Haxorus: 100%
Magnezone: KO
Scrafty: 62%

Do not let that leader board fool you. With that Tailwind up and running and with Salamence down for the count, his Mienshao is free to Hi Jump Kick and knock anything out before it can even attack! This is so retarded. The only option is to sacrifice three Pokémon until Tailwind dies out. The Pokémon that will be kept alive with be Haxorus since it is the only one which can out speed and knock out Mienshao.

Start of turn 22

If Bronzong had more health, it might have survived a Hi Jump Kick, but with it this weakened, there is no chance of that happening.

Start of turn 23

Another knock out for OppoSITE DAY, but after this, his Tailwind will have subsided and I can finally revenge knock out with Haxorus.

Start of turn 24

Alright Dark Armed Dragon. This is it. No choice but to bank it all on Outrage. If his final Pokémon is a steel type, then it is his victory.

Start of turn 25

A mirror match! Unless he uses Wolf's Haxorus, this battle is over. Good game OppoSITE DAY.

Start of turn 26

Overlord Drakow won the battle!

Props
- Opposite Day for giving me such a great match.
- Haxorus was the Dragon of the match. He did a lot of good for me in this battle and ended up sweeping at the end.
- The double switch which allowed my Magnezone to knock out Scizor. That was crucial for me to have a chance at winning this match.
- Choice Scarf.
- Opposite Day not having Wolf's Haxorus.

Slops
-Losing half of my team to Tailwind sweeping Mienshao.
- My favourite Pokémon Hydreigon, doing NOTHING FOR ME.
- Scrafty sweep stopped by Prankster Tailwind.
- Salamence's Draco Meteor failing to OHKO Gyarados.

Thank you for taking the time to read through this battle report. Ideally it has been informative and entertaining for you.

Nice log, Drakow, you certainly play your team well, I've lost to it a few times, although you usually seem to have the hax gods on your side. x)
Anyhow, this was a very interesting battle and I enjoyed your tactic of stalling out Tailwind. Just a tip though, use a darker shades of color, instead of things like light greens, yellows and blues, just so people don't have to strain their eyes. You can find a ton of color codes here (http://www.somacon.com/p142.php). To get a certain color just replace the text after the equal sign with the code pertaining to each color on the chart.

Pretty interesting read, Drakow. :] I can never beat your team! ;-; But anyway, a small nitpick; a battle recap after every round was kinda unnecessary. Isn't it normally after ever Pokemon KO?

Thank you. Perhaps I will do more in the future - it depends if I am involved in any good battles in the future.

Thank you. I changed the colours around a little. Perhaps now it is less painful for your eyes.

Thank you. Initially I was going to to do it just after every knock out as you said however, as I am a mathematician I like to be able to review the team status at any turn during the battle. Information is power, so while it was more time consuming, I think it is worthwhile to display the statistics at the end of each turn.

Wow, nice battle! You should post this as a warstory on Smogon if you haven't yet! Too bad about Hydreigon not doing anything though.
