Isa: then we're looking at a horribly stupid set.

magic9mushroom: I was referring to the Kangaskhan-esque Iron Tail/Curse/Roar/Substitute set, yes.

anonymous: It's not THAT bad. It's useless v. Waters but that's only one step down from its norm of "mostly useless". No SE move for Raikou is annoying but he often runs HP Ice or Reflect and can't touch you anyway.
Jun 11, 2014 4:24:46 GMT 1
anonymous: Not to mention you can still bring him in early-game to check Raikous, just Roar every time, and he'll never suspect a thing.
Jun 11, 2014 4:26:29 GMT 1
Isa: Why run Substitute in the first place? Kangaskhan runs it to block status, but you're already immune to Thunder Wave as well as Toxic, and you wouldn't enjoy a fight with Exeggutor either, would you? edit: OK I forgot about Growl/Charm, but meh.

ok u prolly know who i am: Ya sub on a Curser is 100% for Growl/Charm, ducking status is just a bonus. Also Iron Tail Steelix with Sub actually beats standard Egg. He can't Giga or Sleep Powder, and Psychic won't break the sub.

magic9mushroom: How would you fight Raikou with Iron Tail Steelix? Roar whenever it's active, Sub when it comes back in and you don't have one, and Curse when it comes back in and you do have one, and whacking it with Iron Tail when it comes in and you're at +6?

somebody: yup pretty much. I was just thinking of it as a temporary "get Raikou out of your face" kind of check, though. What you're proposing is once they've caught on and (presumably) you've already killed the waters, in which case, you're golden.

Isa: Despite dead, still gonna try: How legit would Snorlax with HP Bug be in Celebi-legal OU? Obviously cripples Celebi heavily, while still dealing decent damage to Tyranitar. Completely shut down by Gengar though, but Pursuit can help.

Jorg: How much does HP Bug do? Is it a 2HKO?
Jul 18, 2014 7:45:24 GMT 1
Jorg: Regardless, you'd have to be pretty desperate to pull a stunt like that. It really wouldn't be worth it.
Jul 18, 2014 7:45:56 GMT 1
Isa: Snorlax Hidden Power Bug vs. Celebi: 217-256 (53.8 - 63.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery[br]

Isa: I dunno I rarely find myself using Earthquake, figured a change might be cool.
Jul 18, 2014 8:36:02 GMT 1
Isa: Due to the lack of a player base, GSC isn't going to be featured in the next POCL - rest in peace, old gens.

Isa at work: I do not think it needs to be said but I am incredibly disappointed with the decision. I will try to host a GSC tour on PO and see what happens...

Standard rules as usual, Wrap moves are allowed. Format will be round robin unless I somehow manage to get 8+ participants.
The tournament will take part this Sunday (17th) at 7:00 PM GMT, unless there is an agreement to change the time. The tournament will be played in Mount Silver's official PO server. Adv connect: Mount Silver - 188.8.131.52:5080. You can come to the server before the tournamnet for practice matches. Info on how to get started with RBY 251 can be found here as well as in the announcement of the server.
Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-oh, and Celebi are banned.
Warning: Old battle window must be selected or otherwise you will see incorrect sprites. (It's selected by default)
