Attacking every turn lets you win most of the time. But you can definitely lose if luck's not on your side. --- Alienware M17x R4 | i7-3720QM | 2GB 7970M | 16GB DDR3-1600 | 128GB Samsung PM830 mSATA SSD
In one of my gen 1 playthroughs. Also almost lost my first gen 5 battle, luckily my opponent used growl or whatever instead of attack. --- Dream as if you will live forever, live as if you will die today
I lost in Platinum recently to the first battle, but only because my Piplup was Modest, which was more beneficial in the long run anyway. --- I draw nekkid chicks! O: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/82442627/Homika/d69696e3d79b4ef36677817fa3e028a5.jpg Roxie <3
Yeah, a couple of times, although I don't think it was ever on a first playthrough of a game. I never really got that you can't just spam damaging moves to win those battles until a few years ago, so I never used growl/tail whip/leer/whatever to give myself an advantage.
