Might have to do with that whole "first competitive Pokemon battle" thing.

Part of the reason why I don't play in OU. It's such a boring tier <_<

That being said, early 5th gen was more fun then what I played of late 4th gen OU. The only fun I had in last gen OU was trolling 'round with Bibarel...

Anywho, TC didn't do to bad for his first competitive battle.... You did kinda throw away two perfectly good pokémon to his Haxorus, though. You also pretty much wasted your Starmie.

Good first game.
Now, just learn from your mistakes,

Here's a tip. Ninjasks ALMOST ALWAYS do the same thing. They come in, use protect, maybe use swords dance, and then baton pass into something scary. Plan around that.

So I should use Starmie's Thunderbolt for this, yes? That sounds scary 0_o

Anywho, I redeemed myself! The second guy was insanely bad but it helped me learn about my pocket mons more. Tbh, my Salamence hasn't had a use yet, probably because I've yet to see any Dragons besides that Haxorous who gobbled my team up. I switched Skarmory in for Sableye and he's INSANELY more useful.

Pretty much, though my friend did rape with a choice band Ninjask awhile back... In UU...

Best way to deal with 'em is with strong, neutral priority or better (Something like a strong Aqua Jet ), or predicting what their gonna baton pass into and killing/statusing 'em (in this case, he could either pass the boosts to his Haxorus, his Durant, or his Breloom. All of 'em are nerfed by Will-O-Wisp and paralysis, while a strong Ice beam would probably at least 2HKO all of 'em )

I just ran some calcs... Apparently, standard Starmie's Ice beam would only do 45.55% max damage to Durant... Huh, guess I underestimated how much resisting Ice would do despite having only having 58 HP and 48 special defense 0_o

I just had a VERY important game.

This taught me that status effects will make my team cry. I'm about to steal that Vaporeon real quick >_>
