What's wrong with them? This is why I always set a timer as soon as I start.
The bottom line is wrong
The top line is right

I've had problems with this, too. And I think the timer should be at most 90 seconds.

120 is fair I'd say. If you can't wait two minutes, start another battle.

Also, I just got back into Showdown today. And I seemed to be doing really well with this random team I made in less than ten minutes, so at least I haven't forgot everything about Pokemon.

And I'm thinking that I would like to battle people from GFaqs. I'll make more teams in a few different tiers (all my teams got deleted randomly a while ago, which is why I stopped), so that I can battle them in whatever tier they wish. Can't tomorrow, but maybe Sunday I could.

You and me, Cpt_Calamity. It'll be a battle for the ages.

The one thing I don't like about the timer is that my laptop often lags, so the timer begins while I'm still watching the previous turn. Then I can't ask my opponent to stop it, and I end up losing because I'm still watching the previous turn. The timer is a good system, but sometimes it ruins a game for me at least.

I have to do that as well. Does it really take some people that long to think?

They panic when they're losing. Or they're looking up how their Pokemon will fare on a damage calculator.
