[ x ] L285 and Dratini VS Aurora; Ataro reffing. Aurora wins.
Ice Shard is my best friend. Aurora can be fast if she really wants to...[ x ] ChainReaction01 and Ralts VS Aurora; Ataro reffing. Aurora wins.
The suspense! Identical speed stats, whoever hit first would win, and Ice Shard wouldn't hit hard enough...[ x ] Ayame Kijo and Cobalt VS Aurora; Ataro reffing. Aurora wins.
Water vs Fire tends to end favorably for us. Aurora hated the Bounce, though.[ x ] Stormy and Gunther VS Aurora; Ataro reffing. Gunther wins.
Confusion really sucks; clamp was the only damage happening.[ x ] ChainReaction01 and Ralts VS Aurora; Ataro reffing. Ralts wins.
In retrospect, I realize that my strategy only had a ~25% chance of working. Jathan both overpowered and outsmarted me. v.v[ x ] Dust and Sneasel VS Aurora; Ataro reffing. Sneasel wins.
Sneasel's already high attack, plus swords dance, proved formidable.[ x ] Knight of Day and Knight VS Aurora; iReign reffing. Knight wins.
Shadow Ball is a killer. And, in other news, I swear to respond in a timely manner in all future battles.[ x ] Lotad and Skorupi VS Aurora; Ataro reffing. Aurora wins.
Ice Beam froze Skorupi on the first turn; he never escaped.[ x ] Glinor and Gligar VS Aurora; Ataro reffing. Aurora wins; Aurora evolves!
Could have Ice Beam 2HKO'd, instead Clamp/Ice Beam 2HKO'd. It all works.[ x ] Wrave and Dratini VS Ray; Ataro reffing. Ray wins.
Aqua Tail was going to 2HKO, but then it missed! Ray's speed won it for us after that.[ x ] Lugh and Kuromori VS Ray; Ataro reffing. Ray wins.
If Ray hadn't been slightly faster, and Kuromori hadn't been taking recoil damage, we would've lost.[ x ] Mcfeegle and Selena VS Ray; Ataro reffing. Ray wins.
It seems kinda fitting that Geoffrey lost his first battle. I adore that kid. =D[ x ] Cornbread and Cyrel + Wiiunite and Meowth VS Shuckle(numbers) and Onix + Ray; Ataro reffing. Ray wins.
That was chaotic, to the extreme. Might wait a while before doing one of those again... xD[ x ] HikaruIzumi and Ralts VS Ray; Ataro reffing. Ray wins; Ray evolves!
I'm beginning to believe that, with the exception of Gallade, the Ralts family is easy to handle.[ x ] Hyoma and Shou VS Ray; Ataro reffing. Ray wins.
Sadly, Kakuna just doesn't stand a chance against a Quilava. At all. I'm lucky I even got money. >.<[ F ] Forum Free-for-All VS Aurora; Fierce Deity reffing. Aurora 25/55.
Not bad, for a first try. Just tried to take out as many of the little ones as I could in an attempt to get a higher ranking.[ x ] ~Sakura~ and Lu VS Gale; DrStubbsburg reffing. Lu wins.
Hax on first turn are the way to do it. Paralysis took Gale out, and let 'em set up a really good Endure-Reversal combo.[ x ] Alaskapidgeon and Waves and Sparks VS Aurora and Ray; sec reffing. Aurora and Ray win.
I love Skill Link with all my heart. What more is there to say?[ x ] Mubs and Blastoise and Dragonair VS Aurora and Ray; Ataro reffing. Blastoise and Dragonair win.
I used too much of Aurora's health taking out Blastoise; she didn't have enough remaining to take Dragonair. Ray didn't help. ^^|||[ x ] Ghaskan and Bu VS Gale; DrStubbsberg reffing. Gale wins.
My first OHKO. Convenient in some ways, and really really really annoying in others. v.v[ x ] Xeniaph and Josei VS Ray; DrStubbsberg reffing. Ray wins.
I ran across a stroke of luck-- Hypnosis missed, allowing me a 2HKO with Eruption/Flame Wheel[ x ] Synthesis and Lookatmahswirl VS Gale; DrStubbsberg reffing. Gale wins.
Hypnosis and Paralysis all in one match, but Gale still managed to OHKO the Bellydrummed Poliwag. Love her.[ x ] Solid and Gregg and Sasori VS Gale and Ray; DrStubbsberg reffing. Gregg and Sasori win; Ray evolves!
Forfeited due to lack of posts.[ x ] HikaruIzumi and Kirlia and Pichu VS Ray and Gale; DrStubbsberg reffing. Kirlia and Pichu win.
Forfeited due to lack of posts. Last battle before my untimely death. D=[ x ] Turtwig A and Turtwig VS Gale; DrStubbsberg reffing. Turtwig wins.
Leaf Storm. Dx[ x ] IslandWalker and Basil vs Gale; DrStubbsberg reffing. Gale wins.
The type disadvantage looked bad, until confusion smacking gave us a chance.[ x ] ShadowJake and Charmander VS Gale; DrStubbsberg reffing. Gale wins; Gale evolves!
It was obvious from the beginning that I was gonna win, but snot, the trainer was such a butthead about it.[ x ] Dermodio and Pondy VS Storm; DrStubbsberg reffing. Pondy wins.
Sleephax took Storm out for two turns; otherwise, he'd have done enough damage to win.[ x ] Spirit and Scyther VS Storm; DrStubbsberg reffing. Scyther wins.
Scythers have stats. Eevees don't. X-scissor did boatloads. Take Down didn't.[ x ] ChaoZZ HoTneZZ and PsyForce VS Gale; DrStubbsberg reffing. Gale wins.
Chaozz's strategy was sound, but he wasn't fast enough to pull it off. Gale hit too hard too fast.[ x ] Chromas and Tux and Wyrm VS Storm and Eos; DrStubbsberg reffing. We win.
If Chromas hadn't given me a chance by evening the weaknesses, I would've been trounced. He's a good guy.[ x ] Win and Pineco and Grotle VS Storm and Ray; DrStubbsberg reffing. We win.
First set ended with Pineco Exploding both mons; then Typhlosion vs Grotle was easy.[ x ] The Shiny Drapion and Skorupi VS Eos; DrStubbsberg reffing. Skorupi wins.
Eos was totally winning, but then Cross Poison landed a critical.[ x ] The Shiny Drapion and Skorupi VS Storm; DrStubbsberg reffing. Storm wins.
We would have lost, but a really random Acupressure gave us an extra turn. Wuzzat?[ x ] Rage Baron and Vice VS Eos; mubz reffing. Eos wins.
I feel guilty every time I beat a newbie on first battle, but this one especially hurt. >.<[ x ] Timpeni and Mimi VS Eos; Pidge reffing. Eos wins.
Battle RPed, reffing included. Pretty awesome. Congrats to Mimi for evolution.[ x ] Wario-Magician and ??? VS Storm; DrStubbsberg reffing. Storm wins.
The other guy never posted. I don't even know what Pokemon I just beat.[ x ] Pokemon.Master51 and Bulbasaur VS Eos; DrStubbsberg reffing. Eos wins.
I didn't like Eos until this battle. There's something to be said for reusing your very first strategy ever. ^^[ o ] Morru Magnum and Togekiss, Tyranitar, & ??? vs Gale, Aurora, & Ray; ChainReaction01 reffing. Morru wins.
First time on AIM; I was paying more attention to the interface than the actual battle itself. -_-[ x ] Rage Baron and Vice VS Storm; DrStubbsberg reffing. Vice wins; Storm evolves!
If I hadn't missed on the very first turn, I would have won. Or at least put up a fight.[ x ] FrostyJake and Starly and Charizard vs Eos and Aurora; DrStubbsberg reffing. We win.
Twin battle! Eos could've taken the Charizard out all by herself, if she hadn't started with 40% health.[ x ] The Shiny Drapion and Drapion VS Eos; PichuBoy reffing. Drapion wins; Eos evolves!
'twould have been nice if Drapion had noticed the 'at least one basic' in the rules.
[ x ] Gabite and Volt VS Skye; gmandiddy reffing. Volt wins.
Skye didn't do badly, considering the type disadvantage. I have faith in her yet.[ x ] Mcfeegle and Salena VS Skye; DrStubbsberg reffing. Salena wins.
Aaand Feegle is active again! That fills me with joy. Congrats on first win.[ x ] Timpeni and Momo and Mimi VS Storm and ???, gmandiddy reffing. Storm wins.
Trounced thoroughly. I wanted to get Skye some free exp, but got impatient.[ F ] Forum Free-for-All VS Aurora and Ray and Gale; Pidge reffing. Place 24/42-ish
Aurora out early; allies helped me to not only survive for a couple of turns, but take people out with me. Earned 18k.[ x ] 1+1v1+1 Togepi and Glacies VS Wyrm and Skye; Eeveedude reffing. Togepi and Glacies win.
I wish that Skye were useful. That would be nice.[ x ] Niall and Cairo VS Skye; mubz reffing. Skye wins.
Skye's first victory, and yet I feel kinda guilty about it.[ x ] MuddyMudkip and Kipper, Superman, Bolt & Liana VS Aurora, Ray, Gale, & River; DrStubbsberg reffing. We win.
River KOed two fully-evo'd Pokemon even though she's basic. Nasty critter, that.[ x ] Glinor and Venepide VS River; DrStubbsberg reffing. River wins.
Good first battle. Did pretty well, considering it's a bug.[ x ] weegee and Stinger and Bubblegum VS Skye and River; mubz reffing. Skye and River win.
Zubat vs Zubat was interesting for a while. I had the upper hand, other than the speed ties and flinching.[ x ] Mcfeegle and Chopin VS River; DrStubbsberg reffing. Chopin wins.
I wasted a turn with a dragon dance at the beginning; I shouldn't have.[ x ] weegee and Omnibus VS River; DrStubbsberg reffing. River wins; River evolves!
Type advantage + vendetta against people who restarted just to get free Litwicks = own't.[ x ] Niall and Cairo, Sheildon, & Deino VS River, Fredward, & Skye; eeveedude reffing. Niall wins; SKye evolves!
Deino vs Deino speed tie sealed my doom.[ x ] Chuck Norris and Omnibus VS River; DrStubbsberg reffing. River wins.
Same mons as a few battles ago; trounced thoroughly, as a few battles ago.[ x ] Opossumguy and Litwick VS Skye; mubz reffing. Litwick wins.
Getting own't by a properly obtained, honest to goodness firstie Litwick isn't so bad.[ x ] Swoobat and Burg & Snivy VS Skye & Fredward; DrStubbsberg reffing. We win.
Golbat's not nearly as worthless as Zubat. It makes a difference.[ x ] Opossumguy and Lampent & Oshawott VS River & Skye; DrStubbsberg reffing. We win.
Lampent proved tougher than expected; but, this time, I didn't lose even though it was properly obtained.[ x ] Night Owl and Cub VS Fredward; Mubz reffing. Fredward wins.
Roleplaying is fun. I feel guilty for hitting another newbie like that. Darn dragons are overpowered.[ x ] Glinor and Venipede VS Fredward; DrStubbsberg reffing. Venipede wins.
I lost... to a bug. Good thing it was my brother's bug, or I would be quite put out. xD[ x ] CommBA and Golly VS Hemlock; Nitro reffing. Golly wins.
Typing was suuuuuuuper advantageous to one side. The results here were fully expected.[ x ] Muddy Mudkip and Dragonite, Victreebel, & ??? VS River, Aurora, & Ray; Ebail reffing. Muddy Mudkip wins.
I was winning by pure fluke for a while, then reality caught up.[ x ] dandanni and Pyre VS Fredward; Ebail reffing. Fredward wins; Fredward evolves!
Roleplaying is good fun. Dandanni seems like the type to keep coming back for more.[ x ] KantoMasta and Flipper and Sparky VS Hemlock and ???; Ebail reffing. Hemlock wins.
Somehow, we managed to win without a second Pokemon. I understand I was vs a Magikarp for at least part of it, but still...[ x ] EternalLoathing and Scraggy VS Hemlock; DrStubbsberg reffing. Hemlock wins.
Won by forfeit over a month after the battle started. I'm unimpressed.[ x ] Focus58 and Lotad VS Hemlock; DrStubbsberg reffing. Hemlock wins.
I think this is the first time I've actually had a poison type advantage.[ x ] YouLookLikeBread and Venom and Macho VS Hemlock and Skye; Ebail reffing. Hemlock and Skye win; Hemlock evolves!
Hemlock got trounced by psychics; Skye was fast enough to avoid that.[ x ] Dannycon and Gyarados, Prinplup, & Pidgeotto VS River, Storm, & ???; DrStubbsberg & Ebail reffing. We win; River evolves!
River was taken out by Ice Fang; Storm swept, 'cause Danny's entire team was weak to electric.[ x ] CommBA and Sparkplug & Machoke VS Hemlock & Skye; The Crimson Rose reffing. We win.
Double-KO due to hax on both mons. Weaknesses won the second round for me.
