Ya wanna know what Pocket Monster I *hate*? [/slight Battle Log]

HATE. HATE. HATE~Mm'kay, some random time ago, I was considered to have Anti's (Anti Pop Culture Warrior for people that never look in S&M) number in battle. Everything seems to click when I play him, tended to be my offense vs. his stall and usually I got bragging rights at the end of the day. (My first victory against a PC member was him, even.) XD; Well, one day, we had a battle when he used Calm Mind Mismagius, he won. Handily, I might add. Since then, it's ridiculous, I've never been the same. Every time I see the ghost, my teams cripple. I prepare for it (sometimes) and yet that damn Ghost-type has my surfboard come battle time. (regardless of the set)
Sammi & I were talking on MSN when I decided to have another run in the Battle Tower. I cruise from battles #22 - 27, when I enter tier 3 (Battle 28+) of the Battle Tower and face the final challenger of the streak, School Kid Ciara.
She sends out a Machamp loaded with rock-type attacks. Uxie reflects, yawns, switch to Lucario was a breeze, looked like yet another sweep to me. (Seeing as the Battle Tower moveset info sheet had Machamp with nothing major to threaten Luke) I set up a substitute, gain in two Calm Minds. Picture perfect right here, right? I knock out Machamp easily with Aura Sphere, simple OHKO. With a sub up and 2 CMs, this is gg in the Battle Tower, around this tier. She sends out Claydol (CM variant) Dark Pulse laughs at that.
And then her final Pocket Monster, a Mismagius. :| At this point, I'm like, "okay, Dark Pulse should take care of this." She outspeeds me and uses Imprison. To be completely honest, it was the first time I've ever seen it in the game. Haha, then my smile goes to a complete ">:(" when I realize what just happened. Her Mismagius... has Dark Pulse. :/ For those that don't know what Imprison does... it means until the opponent faints or switches out, the opponent can not use moves the user has. Basically, that's a KO. Because now Lucario can't touch her at all. Freaking Mismagius stopped a perfect set up stone cold. >:| So I'm forced to die or switch, I don't want her to suck that time up and set up with me just standing there, so I switch to Uxie. ...Shadow Ball... 2HKOs my yellow hat.
I got nervous here, to be honest. Lucario is technically done for thanks to the speed Missy has. Another Imprison locks him up. So it was either, Garchomp, come back from this nightmare or go home with a terrible streak achievement of 27. I elect to set up Swords Dance, she gets a cirt on Shadow Ball. Isn't that lovely? Garchomp with -1 SpD and low health, and apparently she's faster. Great, just great. I click Dragon Claw and hope by some divine force she misses or something. The I OUTSPEED her and OHKO with Dragon Claw. \o/ I'm not sure how, but hot Mantine that scared the living daylights out of me. o_o;
Well folks, as you can see, I have a Mismagius curse. Thank you Anti Pop.
[ Another "fun" Mismagius curse fact ]
When my latest team (the one you just read about, prior to this run) lost at Battle #61, the opponent's lead which took down two of my Pocket Monsters (Uxie & Garchomp) ... well, that lead was a Destiny Bond Mismagius. :| I eventually lost almost coming back to win, but due to lack of supply (I use a Petaya Berry on Luke because I don't freaking have Salac <_<;) and bad play on my part... I lost. :(
Damn, I hate that ghost with a passion. And yes I'll admit it, I am Mismagius weak.
