Rocks fall, everyone dies



Because I'm lazy, I'm giving you the choice of having your eyes raped if you are using a dark background-skin-thingy, or switching your current PC Skin by clicking on this sentence. :c


So, I was hanging around the server like I always do, the lazy bothersome person I am etc, when yet another (apparent) random-er joins the chat and asks for a battle. I gladly accept, expecting the usual Charizard/Zekrom/Mewtwo team, without knowing that one of the most entertaining battles I've had in this new generation of pokemon were to unfold... but before that, you'll get to meet the team! (also note that since this battle didn't have Wifi clause ticked on, I didn't get to see my opponents team until the end.. and neither will you! haha!)


Team Ex-Ex-Pert (but with Pert so it is more like team Ex-Pert):





Rules:
Tier: Wifi
Unrated
Sleep Clause
Freeze Clause
Species Clause

(also you should be aware that I love writing eloborate thought schemes at times, especially considering lead matchups.. of which I apologize greatly if you find that untolerable) With no further ado, let the match begin!


Battle between Precipice GenV and Oppowdon started!



vs.

Oppowdon sent out Thundurus!
Precipice GenV sent out Thundurus!


Original Version:
Spoiler:
Ah, Thunderus, the floating genie that loves to move around suggestively in his very own personal cloud. Why would I ever choose to lead with this poke, instead of a traditional suicide lead like Aerodactyl?

Well, for one thing Thunderus has the ability Prankster just like its cloudbro Whimsicott (awww look, they must obviously be related), which essentially gives non-attacking moves priority (think of it as quick attack), meaning that it single-handedly can stop anything from setting up at any time. Thus, preventing stealth rock/quiver dance/trick etc, making pokemon that rely on their speed to cripple others setup (read: Deoxys-S, Azelf, Trickscarf Jirachi etc.) useless. Unlike the underdeveloped sweater, however, Thunderus is no slouch offensively, as it sits on a comfortable 125 base special attack, and a very punny 111 base speed, essentially combining support with force.

You may, however, have noted from my description that Thunderus is mostly used as a sort of anti-lead, as it forces your opponents into a guessing game. Will it nail you with its strong STAB, or will it taunt you from setting up? I have four moves at my disposal, Thunder Wave, Taunt, Thunderbolt, and Hidden Power [Ice]. I also know that some Thunderus carry Volt Change over Thunderbolt in order to do some scouting, seeing as nothing racks switches like knowing that your Scarf Latios is going to get priority-Twaved, then on the next turn gets outsped and killed by my HP Dark Stunfisk.

The Nasty Plot set would be silly to use as a lead considering how it’s up against another own priority taunter - Leaving us with a straight up lead set quite similar to mine, or perhaps some odd scarf/specs set that might work as some obscure Gyarados counter or something. What’s really for sure is that regardless of the set, neither one of us would like to get T-waved, so a switch seems appropriate on both parts.

He could taunt me in order to prevent himself from getting T-waved, but why would he Taunt when he faces the risk of losing the tie and getting taunted/t-waved himself? T-bolt will 2hko either one of us, as will HP Ice, but it hardly seems worth the risk knowing that it could go either way, and the fact that I have a near-guaranteed decent switch-in in Swampert. If it taunts, it doesn’t matter, it’s not like I’m going to roar with some sort of silly choiced pert in order to lure in the trickers and roar them away when they try to lock me in roar. If it uses any electric move, free switch-in, and no matter what Swampert should not be 2hko’d by a HP Ice of any kind. Pert it is!


Loeb version: (yeah now you can understand this as well syndy!)
Spoiler:
Oh, Thunderus God's love to move to the popular suggestion of his very personal cloud. Traditional leadership I've seen Aerodactyl suicide, not chosen to lead the strike, and why?

Ah, there is one thing, it just means that you can stop the first attack (consider as a fast attack) as a prank, the main movement, and its function cloudbro Whimsicott Thunderus at any time, since its inception, leading the other group (broken This is dependent on the speed of his Pokemon / dance run / etc to read the trick to prevent Suterusurokku: Deoxys - S is Azelf, Jirachi, and Trickscarf) useless. Unlike a sweater and underdevelopment, but because it has a comfortable base located in the 125 special attack, very punny 111 basic rate, primarily military-related, but the long-term Thunderus does not support the attack.


I will be forced to describe opponents of the guessing game, mainly as a guide, but the anti-health can be used Thunderus. It is a strong foundation for it to hit you, or it will make you strong to resist? I have four hearts, Sandauebu, ridicule, and potential energy of Thunder [ice] moved. Ratiosusukafu, I like the idea - Twaved priority, and will see the next round because some of the actual story outsped Thunderus Borutosandaboruto death is to do some scout I know, HP Stunfisk switch in the dark.


A nasty plot set, especially now considering the U taunter its main priority is to use what would be foolish to lead to dependence. This is a very direct set of lead, to so many, like me / specification is a constraint, some shoes and the like can be used for what it is odd that we can set the counter confusion. Not really depend on what is sure to set, so we did not have one, T waves may appear to be two of a switch right.


He, I, T - you can taunt him to stop claiming to be from the wave, when you tie in the risk of loss / her T-shirt, because it is a fool wave taunt him? T-bolt shirt 2hko, because we are a member or HP Ice, this is true, almost worth the risk I know, you can go to the house in any way guarantee the transfer of Swampert off. If it is ridiculed, it is not important, it is a part of something stupid to engage in deception choiced roar eliminate them, to me, when they tried to lock a roar, I love the crying is not the case. If you use it all the power moves, free convertibility of HP Swampert should not does not matter what kind of tape 2hko'd. Part!


Start of turn 1

vs.
Oppowdon called Thundurus back!
Oppowdon sent out Swampert!
Thundurus used Volt Change!
It had no effect!
Swampert: 100%
Thunderus: 100%/Locked in Volt Change?


Score. Now I’m 98% certain that this isn’t some sort of Nasty Plot set, the remaining 2% of me that is unsure mostly stems from me using a SD U-turn Scizor back in Gen IV in order to scout for random Zap/Gyara-dos before I SD’d and tried to sweep. Simply put, don’t use it, I’ll probably get haunted for “U-turn-ity” by angry scizors in the afterlife of pokemon for misusing its talents so gravely..

ANYWAY. My Choice Band Swampert is in without a scratch, and while it now might very well have a chance to ROCK Thunderus like a hurricane, I really doubt that locking myself into Stone Edge at the beginning of a match is such a good idea, considering how it is still a un-STAB’ed coverage move. While a switch might very well be due for him as well because of the fact that Volt Change is doing jack and squat to me. Overpredicting and using Earthquake at this time is not a good idea either as he might very well just stay in and use another attack to chip at my health, predicting me using EQ on the switch. No, Aqua Tail is my best and only option at this time, as unlike EQ it actually has like 3 immunities in OU, all of which hates Thunderus and Celebi.

Start of turn 2

vs.
Precipice GenV called Thundurus back!
Precipice GenV sent out Reuniclus!
Swampert used Aqua Tail!
Reuniclus lost 51% of its health!
Swampert: 100%/Locked in Aqua Tail
Reuniclus: 49%

Dark_Azelf is watching the battle.
Precipice GenV: haha damn
Precipice GenV: shouldn't have taken bronzong out.


Booo yah! I got quite the fortunate damage roll here, rolling max damage and possibly allowing for a 2hko, as a CB Pert does (43.87% - 51.89%) to a Max/max bold Rank with Aqua Tail on average. I have no reason not to stay in, as Aqua Tail will still do a ton unless it hits something like Cloyster (and if my opponent carried Cloyster, why didn’t my opponent send it in instead of Rank, especially considering the danger of SR chipping off its health before it sets up?), and getting rid of one of the most annoying pokes in the game painlessly would really give me a great way to start off this battle. Let’s do the wave.

-----

Start of turn 3

vs.
Swampert used Aqua Tail!
The attack of Swampert missed!
Reuniclus used Shadow Ball!
Swampert lost 27% of its health!
Swampert: 73%/Locked in Aqua Tail
Reuniclus: 49%

Now this is where I gain some very useful information that probably wouldn’t have mattered if SWAMPERT HAD MANAGED TO HIT IT (though admittedly that is my fault, always choosing Fire Blast over Flamethrower for the higher damage output etc). In my experience, Reuniclus has two sets it can run with little to no trouble, a Calm Mind set that takes a dump on defensive teams by being near impossible to kill unless you use Excavalier, and the Trick Room set turns offensive teams speed against them, most likely killing several pokes in the process. Now, the damage calculation from earlier is versus the first set, however seeing Shadow Ball really alerts me that this is a Trick Room set, but possibly with the ev spread of the stall killer. In other words, I’ll have to make absolutely certain that Rank goes down, seeing as this team carries no priority (hahaha). This teams' main way of addressing scary stuff is Deoxys-S, which unsurprisingly enough does not do its job as well in TR.

-----

Start of turn 4

vs.
Precipice GenV called Reuniclus back!
Precipice GenV sent out Latios!
Swampert used Aqua Tail!
It's not very effective...
Latios lost 48% of its health!

Swampert: 73%/Locked in Aqua Tail
Latios: 52%

Oppowdon: ffff

I’m not entirely sure why he decided to save Rank. Possibly he concluded with that I wouldn’t be bothered with missing and going for a more certain KO in Earthquake, without realizing that this is some sort of choiced Swampert, or perhaps.. wait, what did he bring in? OH BUGGER OFF, IT’S A DAMNED LATIOS, aka problem pokemon #2 for this team. Simply put, I know that this is going to spam draco meteor, but alas, I have no steels. DEAD MEN BE MY TEAM, in other words.

Now, note that since this was a “standard” battle w/o the Wifi Clause from the PC Server, I have no information about my opponent’s team - in other words I’ll have to choose what to sack based on what I’ve seen. Swampert hard counter Electrics without a grass move (Thundurus). Celebi is my SR poke, and sacking it would make it even harder to deal with Latios if I don’t get to t-wave it. Bouffalant can take a hit for the team and provides a decent synergy with Pert, Thunderus can make Latios go from being a threat to a treat. And I’m NOT sacking my cleaner Deo-S, that would be a herp derp move deluxe... So I guess there is just one choice.

Start of turn 5

vs.
Oppowdon called Swampert back!
Oppowdon sent out Rotom-W!
Latios used Draco Meteor!




Rotom-W lost 100% of its health!
Latios's Sp. Att. sharply fell!

Rotom-W fainted!
Rotom-W: 0%//Fainted
Latios: 52%/ -2 Special Attack

Dark_Azelf: oppo you suck, still no steels
Dark_Azelf: lol!
Oppowdon: I know rofl
Oppowdon: I forgot to changeee
Oppowdon: oh well
Precipice GenV: you need steel genV .-.
Dark_Azelf: >:[


Oppowdon sent out Thundurus!

Well you suck you too DA, get back to the tea and crumpets factory already >:[
Regardless, who needs to call the Ghostbusters when you can just use Specs Latios? ZUUUUL.

Anyway, from here on I decide to chance it on a fortunate damage roll. HP Ice from Thunderus does (45.85% - 54.49%) to a 4/0 Latios, which roughly means that I’ll ko it 50% of the time. Regardless of the damage though, it’ll be dead if I manage to get rocks up with Celebi, so that should be an easy kill if not. For all I know, he might be carrying some sort of Magic Bounce mon, which makes it even sillier to try to status it, and HP Ice also has the benefit of hitting any ground mons that could want to switch into a T-wave. Rest assured that Latios will not get a chance to kill anything again.

Start of turn 6


vs.
Precipice GenV called Latios back!
Precipice GenV sent out Heatran!
Heatran is floating on a balloon!
Thundurus used Hidden Power!
It's not very effective...
Heatran lost 4% of its health!
Heatran's Balloon popped!

Thundurus: 100%
Heatran: 96%


Heatran. Now that is extremely annoying considering how I just sacked one of, if not the best answer to it EVER, resisting/taking neutral damage from any attack it carries barring HP Grass. Fortunately, it is a Balloon variant, which leads me to believe that he is either going to Flame Charge (yeah good luck with that considering how I’m packing Deo-S, and I might as well just T-Wave that slug back where it belongs when it is having fun boosting), or, considering how he sacked his balloon in order to GET Heatran in in the first place, I find it rather likely that a Stealth Rock is coming. Thunderbolt should be a 3hko, while Fire Blast 2hko’s me, so while I COULD just simply Taunt and prevent rocks from being set up in the first place, I think that I’ll benefit more from killing off Heatran, which I should be able to do if I’m right.

Oppowdon: at least I'm not magnezone weak!
Dark_Azelf: rofl

Thundurus restored a little HP using its Leftovers!
Gliscor's Toxic Orb activated!

Gliscor was poisoned!

Thundurus: 35%
Gliscor: 100%/Poisoned


All right. He decides to save his Heatran as fodder for later, but that also means that he’ll have to switch around a bit. Considering how I have yet to see something that outspeeds Thunderus, I might as well get to rip his team to pieces using it alone. HP Ice should be a sure OHKO on any Gliscor, and should leave me with a decent way of saving LO recoil on Deo-S, as it sometimes appear to die faster than an Infernape dies after switching into stall twice :/

Thundurus: 46%
Thundurus: 38%


Dark_Azelf: lol...
Precipice GenV: damn
Dark_Azelf: speed tieee
Oppowdon: yeaaaa



Protect doesn’t matter at all on my behalf (lefties recovery yay!), though my opponent is comfortably assured that I do NOT run Hidden Power Dragon for Latios, seeing as I would have little to no reason to stay in on Gliscor in the first place if I did. Regardless, I don’t really need to predict as I’ll do free damage to everything if he keeps on trying to switch around. And switching out would, after SR damage, make Thunderus easy pickings for whatever priority abuser he might have left in his last unknown pokeball, regardless of if it resisted the attack or not (for instance, CB Scizor 2hko’s 100% Thunderus with SR up… then again that probably excludes Scizor from the mystery mon equation given that it has yet to show itself).

To sum my situation up; if I switch out, I’m easy pickings – if I stay, I have a shot at continuing this “mini-sweep”. Time to flip the coin.

Start of turn 12

vs.

Thundurus used Hidden Power! (It's super effective!)
Thundurus lost 46% of its health!
Thundurus fainted!
Thundurus: 0%//Fainted
Thundurus: 38%/Locked in Hidden Power?


Oppowdon:
oh sod off
Precipice GenV: yay

Oppowdon sent out Swampert!
Pointed stones dug into Swampert!

A hidden power Ice or Rock, I presume, neither of which should bother Swampert. Also no LO recoil/ Leftovers recovery leaves me assured that Swampert will likely remain the best way of addressing this menace, as a measly (21.35% - 25.26%) is what a scarf Thunderus would do on average to my Pert with HP Ice (which may be the reason why he was so smug in switching it into Thundurus, as a speed tie is obviously not the most desirable outcome for anyone). Specs is also a possibility, especially considering the fact that he carries Volt Change for scouting purposes, but that shouldn’t trouble Swampert either seeing as it deals (31.77% - 37.50%) on average, quite possibly leaving me with Torrent activated and a possible kill on Latios. After all, I love to think that hax comes back to bite your ass eventually, and what would be better than another miss from a 90% move?

To be honest, the biggest threat to my Swampert from this Thunderus is that Pokemon Online may somehow have implemented the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 Hidden Power mechanics, which changed your hidden power type and power every time you used it, (which actually WOULD make some sense considering all the times my Celebi have found itself to have HP Dark instead of Fire...), but that is just me being ridiculous. Swampert, he has shown you HIS power level, now it’s your turn to show him yours.

Oppowdon sent out Deoxys-S!
Pointed stones dug into Deoxys-S!
Deoxys-S is exerting its Pressure!


Well, that is nothing but extremely annoying. I’ll assume that this is a specs Thunderus, as otherwise he wouldn’t have killed me even with a max damage crit :/ Luckily, this means that Deoxys can come in to show it the true meaning of speed, without worrying about taking a T-wave to the face, but it also means that it takes damage. (Magic Guard Deo-S anyone?)

Dark_Azelf: deoxyzzzz
Precipice GenV sent out Reuniclus!


He sends out Rank, of which I can do just about nothing to at this health. Besides, I already know that since it is running Shadow Ball, it is most likely a Trick Room set. I need to get my rocks up, so Celebi it is. It might look like a silly move on my part, (what, not killing off Rank immediately with a LO Leaf Storm) but at this point in the game I’m trying to calm myself down to convince myself that it really isn’t. Call me paranoid or whatever, setting up Stealth Rock is necessary for me to have a chance atin actually winning this game. Latios is currently at 52%, and while Deo-S is SUPPOSED to do more to it than that with a LO Ice Beam, (66.45% - 78.41%), to be exact, I’ve found that for some reason it NEVER does more than 50% when I ladder, so I’m not taking any chances. Barring that, SR is also immensely useful as it breaks Sturdy, which could otherwise prevent me from sweeping with Deoxys.

Basically, my main argument for not killing off Rank at this health is that it might just be that my opponent switches in something that could easily kill off a 4|0 Celebi with -2 Spa and outspeed it in TR, leaving me with no SR and no potential Sturdy break - and we don’t want that to happen, do we? >:[

On the bright side, by the time of Buff’s demise Trick Room should’ve ended, which finally should allow me to unleash the fury, and Reuniclus is at no health to be taking hits anyway, in other words, with the final (known) obstacle overcome, Deo-S should have an easy if stressed time cleaning up.

Okay, this ought to be interesting. Deoxys-S, the only poké of mine to actually kill off one of Precipice's mons, often hailed as one of the, if not THE best late game cleaner back in D/P, versus my opponents entire team. I know that I can one-shot everything I've SEEN on his team, but that mystery unseen poké makes me worried.. Regardless, this is a now or never moment, Trick Room has ended, and Rank, the one thing that I've seen that could stop Deo in its tracks, has been weakened to the point of no Return (or in this case, ICE BEAM).

-----

Start of turn 24

Spoiler:
Precipice GenV sent out Conkeldurr!
Pointed stones dug into Conkeldurr!


Dark_Azelf: oshi
Oppowdon: aaaa

Well damn. I have no idea how much Mach Punch does, and it is obvious that this will be the final move no matter what - as long as Psycho Boost hits, that is damned 90% acc attacks. Let's end this!

vs.
Conkeldurr used Mach Punch!
It's not very effective...
Deoxys-S lost 17% of its health!

Deoxys-S used Psycho Boost! (It's super effective!)
Oppowdon: HIT
Precipice GenV: ahhh

Conkeldurr lost 93% of its health!
Deoxys-S's Sp. Att. sharply fell!

Conkeldurr fainted!
Deoxys-S is hurt by its Life Orb!
Dark_Azelf: draw
Deoxys-S fainted!
Deoxys-S: 0%//Fainted
Conkeldurr 0%//Fainted



Tie between Oppowdon and Precipice GenV!

Oppowdon:
lol
Dark_Azelf: rofl
Oppowdon: gg
Dark_Azelf: log
Precipice GenV: gg
Dark_Azelf: imo
Oppowdon: yeah
Oppowdon: I'll log this
Oppowdon: rofl
Dark_Azelf: it was amusing
Dark_Azelf: lol
Dark_Azelf stopped watching the battle.



Turns out that Mach Punch does (17.57% - 20.50%) on average, so it would end up with a tie barring a crit on his side. :x Essentially ONE single thing killed me, the crit on Swampert which forced Deo-S to take SR + LO damage for killing Thunderus - and in retrospect I probably could've tried to predict the second Shadow Ball from Rank. Regardless, this was one of the most fun battles I've had in Gen V, and since Precipice agreed to join the panda clan I have great expectations for the future.. and future logs, hohoho. :X GG Precipice!

Thunderus because fast
Precipice for the entertaining match

Slops:
Reuniclus for being so damn annoying
Rotom-W for not being steel-typed despite clearly being a washing machine made out of metal
Thunderus because just as fast
Me for sacking Celebi for almost nothing :<

Like I said, really nice battle and the formatting was nice as usual. :) Next time, change to the comment text (black text) to forum default or something else for dark skin users though. >:<

I hafta be "that guy" and say that even if he switched Latios into the T-bolt, you would have taken 20% from LO recoil from killing Latios and Heatran would have died from your SR anyway. ;-;

(but if he switched Latios into Ice Beam... you would have won!!)

Anyway it was a pretty entertaining log. ;D VRAI STAMP OF APPROVAL

Oppo, I gotta admit, that was one of my favorite logs I've ever read (albeit, I've read maybe 5 logs in my lifetime). Not only was it a fantastic battle with some great thought processes, but it was augmented by your charming humor and various puns and pictures. You must teach me in your picture hunting ways because you always seem to have pictures for ever situation. xD

But yes, the formatting was fantastic, the commentary was fantastic, and obviously I enjoy the humor. My only suggestion is not to use ugly sprites. >:[ I've seen all of those sprites before and they're cool for the whole devamp style and all, but it's a shame to see such a good log with such awful pictures. xD

Thanks for commenting despite being probably the one to have read it like 9000 times more than Syndrome ever will :x But yeah, I'll add a link to a neutral/light forum skin at the top, so that you won't have your eyes go sore when you try to read it while you're using "Team Magma's Passion" rofl.

eww those icky yellow emoticons

Regardless, thanks for the comment Aura! I know that it is short, but IT IS NOT THE LENGTH THAT MATTERS, BUT HOW YOU USE YOUR GIVEN MATERIAL OK
(besides, when I'll get around to post my second decent log altogether with a matching RMT.. you'll probably understand why those kind of battles tend to be short lol, offense all the way!)

ewww dat smiley

Thank you though! Knowing that my ramblings are read-able and not just passably amusing to S&M regulars means a lot to me, and I hope that you'll stick around and get to know the amazingness that is battle logs and my greatest passhionnnnn. ;D

AH BUT THEN HE COULD'VE JUST SAVED TRAN FOR LATER, KILLING ME OFF WITH MACH PUNCH AND WINNING DUE TO IT NOT TAKING SR DAMAGE

...dammit I hate overthinking these things lol

Regardless, thanks for commenting! I don't see the actual stamp of approval though, I think you forgot to post it. >:[

<33333. Open up the battle log archive right now, and read "Black Ice versus Aurafire", "The Monster 'Mash'", and "Team Ass versus Aurafire" (funny how Aura tend to be on the receiving end of those slapstick battles... hahaha), you will not regret doing that if you enjoyed reading this one lol :x
HOW DARE YOU CRITICIZE THE SPRITES THEY ARE AMAZING
But if it cheers you up, I'll probably c+p Vrai in regards to sprites on the next log, and you'll probably find that it goes a little bit easier on the eyes than these ones :x Thanks for reading and enjoying it, makes me happy that I'm not the only one that finds pleasure in these (no not that way you silly innuendo hunters)




ALSO, I'll update the OP with a Loeb version of the first turn drama for those that thought that it was TL;DR deluxe (perhaps I'm related to Vexatious from smogon??). Credit to Wolf for the mildly said entertaining "advanced english"-wall of text!

The Loeb part got me lol. Where has that guy been...
Anyways, it was a really enjoyable battle (more than the one where Vrai kept critting my team to death and won 1-0 even though Deo had a similar comeback) and David Caruso is just a boss, making this log the greatest of all time. Anyone who objects to David Caruso being awesome should go face an Inconsistent Octillery.
In all seriousness, great log though, and I expect no less from the guy who stole at least 2 of my gym entries in the CAPL project last year lol
