@makhai: Here's the first game's replay.

Neither of us have the 2nd. Shame. It was a good one. In fact, it was the only game we played that didn't just end in a boring sweep.

@orion_savage: Now, if you're on. Did you get the Hoopa thing figured out with Erik?

@makhai: Cool. Two things.

1. Are Nightthunder and Killraven both my opponents?

2. Can't help but notice Hoopa Unbound on Nightthunder's trainer card. That Pokemon is an Uber, and is restricted from use in this tournament.

@makhai: My only concern with Anything Goes is that it lacks all the protection from cheap bullshit and unfun shenanigans. If we do Ubers, we should just do Ubers. Stay in the tier format, and we'll get these fairly standard clauses:

Swagger Clause: Swagger is banned

Mega Rayquaza Clause: You cannot mega evolve Rayquaza

Sleep Clause Mod: Limit one foe put to sleep

Species Clause: Limit one of each Pokémon

OHKO Clause: OHKO moves are banned

Moody Clause: Moody is banned

Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion moves are banned

Endless Battle Clause: Forcing endless battles is banned

@jaken7: @higorm: Nice battle. Very close match. I think Jaken could have taken it though if he didn't waste so many moves trying to Atk up against Skaromy after he knew that it would just whirlwind him out.

The 2nd Swords Dance on turn 30 was a misclick. It was meant to be Return, and that would've more or less taken care of Skarmory. All of the Swords Dances after that were actually done in anticipation of a Whirlwind, because Earthquake wouldn't work and I was trying to preserve Diggersby's health as much as possible by avoiding the Life Orb trigger (my only two options were Quick Attack - which Skarmory is resistant to - and the aforementioned Return - which really needs that buff to be useful against Skarmory because, of course, he's resistant to it as well. Neither were worth the health loss at the time). Wasn't until Diggersby's health was in the red that I said screw it and started attacking Kamikaze style, and it was that set of plays that actually allowed me to break free of the Hydro Pump/Whirlwind/Roost on the Switch combo trap that was draining the PP from Rotom-Wash's best STAB move.
