With third generation way behind us I wanted to hear some people's epic fight stories back in the day. So post your most epic battle or legendary catch here.
Here's my story:
After a historically easy beatdown of the Elite Four, I was on a roll. My team consisted of and . It was not my first Emerald playthrough, and I had trained a Manectric for the sole reason of defeating Wallace. Also, it was the coolest looking electric pokemon. So I began the battle with Wallace, expecting an easy victory. Manectric easily smited Wallace's Wailord with a Thunderbolt. A second Thunderbolt cooked Wallace's Gyarados. Wallace's Whiscash then faced my Crobat, a battle easily won by a critical hit from Fly. However the intensity of the battle skyrocketed when Manectric was pitted against Tentacruel. Tentacruel absorbed a Thunderbolt and countered with toxic. Manectric was easily healed with a Pecha Berry only to be sent reeling by Tentacruel's Surf. Rather than risk Manectric, I switched to Sharpedo. Immediately Sharpedo was hit with a punishing Sludge Bomb. As I juggled the tasks of healing and sneaking in a rather weak Crunch, Tentacruel's sludge Bombs had poisoned Sharpedo. Sharpedo sacrificed his last turn to heal Manectric to full health. Zangoose swooped in and finished Tentacruel with a powerful Crush Claw. Wallace then sent out Ludicolo, one ugly piece of work. Zangoose got in one Crush Claw as Ludicolo was Rain Dancing. Then the annoyance began. Rain Dish kicked in and Ludicolo like the cheap douche he is began double teaming like crazy. The separation between the times Zangoose hit became longer and longer and Ludicolo soon swept him away with a Surf. Crobat's Wing Attacks helped little, the damage from the times they hit were washed away by Ludicolo's Rain Dish ability. But as Crobat fell Ludicolo's health bar was at yellow, primed to be talked. Problem was his evasiveness, which was at dangerously high level of annoyance. And so a cycle of Sky Uppercut missing and then max potion healing began when I sent out Blaziken. At that point Wallace must have missed a step for if he had done a Rain Dance, the battle probably would have ended with Ludicolo sweeping the rest of my team. But no, Ludicolo kept on Surfing away. Suddenly Blaziken's Sky Uppercut hit and knocked out the stupid fur-covered mexican duck. Now the final battle was at hand. Wallace's Milotic vs. Manectric. Manectric struck again and again with Thunderbolt only to be healed away by Milotic's recover. With Manectric at low health I sacrificed Blaziken and Aggron to heal its health and PP. Now it was one on one. Manectric struck away at Milotic's fat health bar, but every hit was recoverable. Finally it was down to one single Thunderbolt, Milotic too had run out of recovers but was at full health. Manectric was at red health and Milotic had full health. Only a miracle could save this championship team. I watched slowly as Manectric's final attack hit. A Critical Hit! yes, Yes, YES. I literally began punching the air with joy as Milotic's health bar zeroed out. I had won against all odds. I was champion.
And that's the most epic pokemon battle I ever fought. Looking forward to hearing your stories.
