Date: 3/29/2007

Background information: I created THE Alternative in 2005, which was the first community of its kind dedicated to competitive RBY.  By 2006 it had been averaging about one completed tournament a month, which I felt was a huge success given that its future was in dire straits upon the emergence of RSE.  I would say that TOS6 was THE Alternative's zenith, as it was not only the largest tournament it ever hosted, but was also a convergence of several notable organizations at the time.  In addition to players from my own backyard, there were familiar faces from Hell's Flames, PLDH, TP, Morlord, and even Gamefaqs, making it quite the spectacle.

In round three I went up against Jimmy Kudo, one of the better players from PLDH who really wanted the win.  His obvious forum pride made TOS6 feel like a kind of interboard affair.

My team: Jynx/Tauros/Snorlax/Exeggutor/Chansey/Alakazam

Jimmy Kudo's team: Gengar/Tauros/Rhydon/Chansey/Starmie/Exeggutor

Rules: Standard RBY OU

GGFan vs Jimmy_Kudo21.  Begin!

GGFan sent out Jynx (Lv.100 Jynx)!

Jimmy_Kudo21 sent out Gengar (Lv.100 Gengar)!

GGFan: Ok good luck

Glitch RBY has started watching.

HcM has started watching.

Glitch RBY: i hear your good at RBY GGFan

Necavi has started watching.

Glitch RBY: i was hoping

Jimmy_Kudo21: you too

MikkelDemey has started watching.

 

Begin Turn #1

Gengar used Hypnosis!

Gengar's attack missed!

---------------------------------

Jynx used Lovely Kiss!

Gengar fell asleep!

---------------------------------

Jimmy did his homework and designed a swell counter team.  I was known for my Jynx team, which he prepared for by leading with Gengar.  He also opted for more defense by going with Starmie instead of Snorlax, which gave said Jynx trouble.  Rhydon was also an interesting choice, as having Starmie gave him more opportunities to paralyze my Pokemon—Chansey and Alakazam, to be exact—and wreak some havoc.  Unfortunately, however, things already didn’t go according to plan with that Hypnosis miss.

End of turn #1

GGFan's Jynx: 333 HP

Jimmy_Kudo21's Gengar: 100% HP (Slp)

Glitch RBY: to take my revenge on you

Jimmy_Kudo21: >_>

Glitch RBY: after a humiliating defeat

Glitch RBY: at OU

Glitch RBY: but i got haxed

GGFan: Yeha, so good I can manipulate Gengars ;)

Glitch RBY: like one crazy mofo

 

Begin Turn #2

Gengar is fast asleep.

---------------------------------

Jynx used Body Slam!

It doesn't affect Gengar...

---------------------------------

Body Slam was a great move on Jynx in this era to paralyze the incoming Chansey or Snorlax.

GGFan: lol

Jimmy_Kudo21's Rhydon: 90% HP

GGFan: Shit

GGFan: Misclicked oh well

 

It’s interesting (and a little embarrassing, admittedly) to see me engage in this kind of banter.

Begin Turn #7

Rhydon used Rock Slide!

(333 damage)

It's super effective!

Jynx fainted!

This had to have indeed been a misclick, as there’s no way I would have stayed in so early in the game.  Misclick or not, it’s my fault, though.

GGFan sent out Alakazam (Lv.100 Alakazam)!

---------------------------------

Gengar used Hypnosis!

Alakazam fell asleep!

---------------------------------

I anticipated a switch, but he was determined to try and wake up.  I probably should have immediately gone to Snorlax; in retrospect, that would have been the optimal play as he didn’t have Exeggutor.

End of turn #12

Alakazam fainted!

Gengar fainted!

Jimmy_Kudo21: BOOM!

Jimmy_Kudo21: GG?

Thanks to an unlucky early wake up and a Sleep Powder miss, he was able to fire off the Explosion.  Luckily I still had my Exeggutor to inflict another sleep.

GGFan: <3

GGFan: Gengar waking up second turn was equally bull IMO

Jimmy_Kudo21: he didn't wake up 2nd turn

GGFan: Add to the fact that it took min damage from Ice Beam and Sleep Powder miss

Glitch RBY: but gengar

Glitch RBY: also

GGFan: It did

Jimmy_Kudo21: 3rd turn

Glitch RBY: missed the hypnosis

Glitch RBY: in the beginning

GGFan: Slept then woke up

Glitch RBY: and on lax

Jimmy_Kudo21: i was in 1 turn on ala

GGFan: Thats because I let it die, and I kinda wanted it to hit Lax at first

Glitch RBY: just go

 

I had to win this game, if only because Jimmy had his own personal cheerleader.

I actually remember this exchange.  Being able to telegraph the switch to Rhydon was a huge play.  This in conjunction with switching to my sleep bait to absorb the Explosion really shows how much of an advantage experience gave me.

I was definitely getting the shaft in this game in regard to RNG, but I would mature a lot and become more composed.  His personal cheerleader being annoying didn’t help matters, however.

Glitch RBY: or possible explosion

I actually decided to calculate this when his cheerleader insisted it was bad luck: Rhydon Earthquake vs. Snorlax: 169-199 (32.3 - 38%)

 

Turns out he would have needed close to a max roll to kill me, as my Snorlax was at 196 HP--very small odds.
