    Gothita (also Salandit and probably Karrablast) right now, is definitely not a threat after that Growl from Priscilla. The only true enemy we have right now is Yungoos (33 Attack), which is why I think we should focus our fire on it.

    Buuuuuut, since my mind is so occupied right now I might be missing something. If you think that's better, go for it.

    So as I said in thread, I was wrong and clearly I have no freaking idea as to what damage people will do. Apparently that’s the element RNG provides since Felix did nearly as much damage as you with a weaker Attack stat(I’m aware Felix’s Attack was special and not physical, just noting the diffference in Pokemon stats). Suppose my poor estimates are due to simply being new to this. I mean I know Glacier’s Ice Move isn’t SE on Fighting but to only do 17 damage... seems like the low end if you ask me. Had STAB and was a moderate move too.

    Anyways, what do you think of my suggestions for Rinnia, Elwind and Black? I have Black moving to L2(Pancham’s spot) and using Fury Cutter on Gothita. I don’t expect Black to KO it(would have to do as much damage as you and Felix to do that) but still enough to really hurt it and force Lycan’s hand with regards to Yungoos. Rinnia will move and teleport to K4, putting her in position to attack Salandit in Round 5 while Elwind sprints to K5 to Shield Rinnia’s flank while also moving down there to lend a hand in Round 5.

    As for what Lycan will do, I expect Yungoos to move to L1 and use Pursuit on Black. The move will get amplified from Stakeout ability, hence boosting its damage(estimate maybe 15-20 Damage). Salandit will then move to K1 and Use Ember on Mags(Super Effective but her Sturdy ability will prevent OHKO). As for Gothita, I’d then move her to N3 and use Confusion on Mags(hence fainting her most likely). As for Nuzleaf and Karrablast, I don’t know what they will do but I’d expect them to try and cover Yungoos while attacking Black as he’s the biggest threat to Nuzleaf.

    I then expect Salandit and Gligar to slide down from the West while the two Ghost Types either fall back or move up and Attack Mercy. Not sure what he will do with Drowzee but due to its movement, it’s all but dead unless it knows Teleport. Therefore I’d stand my ground and hit Coral with another Confusion attack that hopefully causes Confusion.

    Tall Grass boosts Defense(both Physical and Special). I suppose the lone advantage you have over Black is that you have STAB with your move while Black does not. With that in mind, you might do ~30 damage on your Rock Throw Attack if it connects but I'd be very surprised if you did 36 damage to KO Sneasel. Either way we look at it, all that matters is that we KO Sneasel because its Ice attack(if it has one) does x4 to Nah.

    If you DO manage to KO Sneasel, I'll have Black move to L2 and use Fury Cutter on Gothita. It would severely hurt her but not prevent her from doing a move.

    I didn't know Black had an attack boost. I assumed I'd OHKO Sneasel since I almost did that to a Skorupi with 33 Defense (Sneasel's Defense just can't compare to that). What does the Tall Grass provide again?

    You won't OHKO Sneasel. Its in Tall Grass and your attack isn't as strong as Black's is right now(51 >40). Black did 32 damage against a Sneasel in open terrain back in Round 2. You'll probably do ~20-25 damage in this situation if you connect on Rock Throw and Black will finish it off. If I'm Lycan as gamemaster, Black is a bigger threat due to it knowing Fury Cutter so I expect Yungoos to use Pursuit on it after moving to J1 to prevent Black from moving. Meaning if we want Black to whack Nuzleaf in Round 5, we'd have to KO Yungoos. Meaning we'd have to do the following if that happens:

    Mags to K2(Flowers to heal if she's alive), Thundershock on Yungoos and hopefully does 19 damage on Yungoos(unlikely but there's a reason why). Then Nah moves to K1 and uses Dragon Rage on Yungoos. If Mags does 19 damage, Dragon Rage will KO Yungoos, allowing Black to move. If not, you'll have to use Rock Throw on Yungoos to finish it off so that Black can move without taking Pursuit damage. Then Black can go after Nuzleaf and Gothita with his Super Effective BUG TYPE move :). Rinnia and Priscilla can KO Salandit in Round 5, hence Karrablast, Gothita and Nuzleaf will be the remaining ones to deal with and perhaps the Salandit and Gligar coming from the west(via the Cliff).

    I'd rather have Black assist in taking down Gothita tbh, assuming I KO Sneasel.

    I forgot that Rinnia exists. I suppose we can leave Yungoos, Karrablast, and Salandit alone since they don't even remotely seem like threats (except for magnemite). Loose ends suck though.

    I guess I should hit Sneasel then. It's probably an OHKO if it doesn't miss.
    i'd appreciate it if someone could get rid of that gothita i think it's dangerous

    A thought did cross my mind with Rinnia though. If she moves to M6, she can prevent Ember from being used! Granted it'd open her up to Bug and Poison moves so its a question of who wants to take a hit for the team?

    Thing is its unlikely Black will OHKO Sneasel-D. The last one he attacked had 33 HP due to being one level lower and was in Open Terrain. He left it with 1 HP and hence I moved and took 18 Pursuit damage to finish it off in Round 2. Odds are Black won't be OHKO'ing Sneasel-D unless he gets lucky with a Critical Hit, leaving you to finish it off from using Rock Throw at J3.

    As for what Pokemon to go after if he should get lucky like that, Salandit is a possibility . However, I think Rinnia can nearly handle it herself seeing as she nearly OHKO'd the last one we had the displeasure of facing and if it should happen to go after her, she can move, use Confusion on it and then others from our Northern group can finish it off. Odds are he'll try to gang up on one of our new allies down here with his weakened attack in an attempt to KO one of our Pokemon. Kind of unthinkable that we've been able to go this long without someone going down lol.

    Plus I was thinking of having you move to L2(where Pancham was) and using Rock Throw on Karrablast. Just something about Bug Types that bugs me lol. Salandit or Karrablast is who I'd go after if Sneasel-D should fall but the priority is Sneasel-D because he does x4 on Nah and the worrisome thing is that Rock Throw isn't a gurantee to KO him due to 90% Accuracy.

    Anyways, you might as well make your move now because I don't think Black will get THAT lucky. I recommend moving to J3 and using Rock Throw on Sneasel-D. That way if you hit, Black can finish it off with Fury Cutter. Lycan will then likely respond with Yungoos moving to J1 and using Pursuit on Black because his Fury Cutter is that dangerous(especially against Nuzleaf). Salandit will likely move to K5 and use Ember on Mags(SE move that's not affected by the Growl), Gothita moves to N3 and uses Confusion on Mags and Karrablast moves to L3 and finishes Mags off with w/e. Not sure what he'll do with Nuzleaf but I suppose he'll attack Priscilla or Nah.

    I think I'll wait. If Black gets rid of Sneasel then I can get rid of Salandit instead.

    Just a friendly poke on FTE. You can move right now to J3 and use Rock Throw, or wait until Black moves before making yours.
