- Guy sends out Shedinja
- I switch out into Porygon2, Traces Wonder Guard, other poke's move does nothing
- Rotates back to Shedinja, I use Toxic, it's gone
I have claimed Giratina
Funniest encounter i had, we both are left with our last pokemon:
guy: sends out cloyster
me: sends out latios
"wanted to use thunderbolt straight off the bat, considering cloysters low sp.defense but based on my experience, most cloysters hold focus sashes to gain a free shell smash, so i decided to use trick"
bx's latios used trick!
Foes cloyster gained choice specs,
bxs latios gained focus sash
foes cloyster uses shell smash!
foe figured that he cant change his moves and hesitated.
I was planning to spam thunderbolt.
*you have lost connection bla bla bla*
I alway had a garchomp in my team, but i seldom use it over excadrill, too much scarfer and ice shard users around.
Bringing 3 sandstorm sweeper is risky, when the opponent, change the weather, its gg.
Most commonly used combo myself,
liligant as lead, hippowdon, excadrill
Sometimes i use my sandsteam as a bait, to make people think that im gonna use them,
Most of the people use, rotom w or powerful water to counter my hippodow.
Instead i used a liligant as my lead and swept his team.
Random Matchup being rather unpopular on Serebii and Smogon, I am quite surprised to see a thread for it, though everyone seems to be narrowing their conversations to single battles...
I started playing Rotation recently and found it a lot more interesting because there are more mind games and prediction involved and i can use FOUR of my Pokemon! You won't be left out, Heatran! Some mechanics involved here really annoy me though. Specifically Drought, Sand Stream etc not activating if the Pokemon is rotated in. I forget to put my Politoed/Abomasnow/etc at the front a lot.
I'll get around to trying some other modes sometime, but right now i think Rotation Matchup battles are epic. Join me! (The waiting time is AAAAAAAAAGES at the moment. It takes two minutes to find a game).

Lol, RandBat isn't unpopular on Smogon. Heck, it's the default ladder when you log onto their PS! server.
Oh, and BUMP!
