• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    So I totally forgot that Incinerate's BP was boosted, and I didn't read Keldeo's commands properly before commanding myself. A+, Blazhy. That's okay, we can work with this. Finish that Substitute off with another Shadow Claw, then Flash Cannon twice. If there are clones on the second or third...

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    Palladian seems to have taken less damage than he was supposed to. According to your calculations it seems he jumped up to 92% health for some reason, so that's likely the culprit. Since Shadow Claw has a secondary effect (increased crit rate), it should cost an extra 1% energy. A lot of moves...

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    I didn't really want to turn it into a switch war, either, but another two actions of Surf is incredibly boring and unchallenging to ref :P Right, Palladion, I kind of regret sending you out because I forgot steel doesn't resist dark anymore, but! We can work with this. Set up a Reflect to...

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    Hmm, the flavour for Payback is a bit odd. It's supposed to be a physical contact attack, so I wouldn't expect it to take the form of a beam. Payback's damage looks fine, but it looks like you forgot to account for the boosted BP when calculating energy.

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    ... oh, wait, actually Dazel, it looks like you didn't change the command order this round. I'm supposed to attack first here. If Keldeo's going to switch, so will I, I suppose. Parapluie, let's get out of here and let Palladion take the field. Switch to Palladion

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    No problem! It's my job to make sure your reffings are good :P ... oh, what errors did you notice? OTL I haven't done this ref testing thing in a while so I'm probably rather rusty, so any help in pointing out errors is appreciated.

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    Just one more minor correction. Since Parapluie used Surf again, her Encore count should be down to two. Also, I'm not quite convinced that an unboosted non-STAB'd Surf would have to power to move boulders so easily (still a bit of a stretch for a STAB'd Surf, really). It's great that you're...

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    Dazel, when you edit things, please post in the thread to say you've done so! Otherwise the battlers won't really know. It appears the arena and end-of-round notes have disappeared for this round, however. And Encore only lasts three actions total; I assume you meant to write in Parapluie's...

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    Ah, the arithmetic isn't necessary; just the final figures are fine. What I'm talking about are the numbers you roll out of 100 to see if secondary effects kick in, for example? Yeah, even with the life orb, it's somewhat of a stretch, especially since Keldeo didn't specifically command Rhyme...

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    In addition to what Keldeo said, would it be possible to post rolls and what you're rolling for with your damage calculations for the next round? Your prose is, again, quite good. A small problem is that I don't think U-Turn would've actually been strong enough to toss Parapluie into the pool...

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    Aaand I can't really do anything else, so go ahead and keep Surfing, Parapluie. Surf ~ Surf ~ Surf

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    When you make edits, it'd be appreciated if you could post here so Keldeo can see, too. c: (also I tend to browse TCoD on my phone so I might read the VM and forget about it later OTL) This is looking much better! Your prose is definitely at least on par with that of a novice now. Keep that up...

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    I can sort of see how it could be interpreted as that, but "destroy substitutes" basically means "default to initial offensive command".

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    For the reasons Keldeo stated, Parapluie should've used Rock Tomb on the first and second actions. And again, Keldeo is right in that Surf hits every Pokemon on the field, so it should've gotten rid of the clone (precisely why I ordered it in case of clones). Normally you're not required to...

    blazheirio889 vs. Keldeo

    This is where I wish I had a Sharpedo. Who cares about type advantages, clearly I must thrash Rhyme around with a shark! ... Oh well, Parapluie, let's just pretend you're a shark for now. Maybe the astroturf can supply you with a shark costume. Why don't we start off with a Rock Tomb? Then, if...
