    I recall always accidentally reading that one's name as for yours for a split second before noticing the difference. I guess that had to spread.

    So traditional.

    Also, it's been that way for about a week now, so that was fun.

    It's very subtle, but very memorable.

    "Chef" is very clearly the intended word, so most of anyone who doesn't notice it's an eification would probably just assume it's some alternate French spelling or something.

    Touché, but also: likewise.

    It'd definitely be embarassing, wrecking Pokémon that have my name on it. Still, I can always edit their names back just in time. And maybe even stealthily sneak stupid typos into them while I'm at it, for added flavor.

    Does it seem like I even read an arena description of that length?

    There'll eventually be time for ridiculous battles. Incidentally, I hope you'll have a slot ready when the time comes for us to reenact what would've happened if we'd clashed in the tournament.

    I'll go ahead and convey these takes on it, then. Thanks for the second opinion.

    As far as I understand, Meursault's conditionals basically go "if the Cottonee is hovering over land, use Fire Spin; if the Cottonee is hovering over water, check for Hydro Pump, then Protect if affirmative or Heat Wave if negative". At the beginning of the action, the Cottonee was hovering over water, prompting the Monferno to wait for a hypothetical Hydro Pump. While she waited, the Cottonee proceeded to use Endeavor, which, as a contact move, required the Cottonee to hover towards the Monferno's position, and thus, over land. The question seems to be whether the Monferno can change her mind and use Fire Spin before the Cottonee successfully attacks (and also, secondarily, whether the Monferno can swap around on her conditionals to reflect the changed situation, but nobody's arguing against that). It matters because Fire Spin landing first makes it impossible to land Endeavor successfully. TrueToCheese let the Fire Spin land first based on Monferno being ahead on base speed by about 15 points.

    I'm more inclined towards having Endeavor land first, being that priority supercedes speed and Monferno was using a neutral priority move while in, so to say, Wait Mode, which was engaged before the hovering terrain situation changed. Also, very technically, Meursault's commands only had the Monferno check where the Cottonee is hovering at the beginning of the action, but that's most likely not worth fussing over.

    Do you have any thoughts on the matter yourself? I do have some, but I'm aware I'm not exactly ASB's favorite source on conditional command priority resolution, so I'd rather at least check that my rationale wouldn't necessarily be an isolated one.
