well in this case i can see why there might not be a tie...but in the case of both pokemon getting ko'd by a sandstorm, wouldn't that be a tie?
I did that against Red in SoulSilver with the hailstorm. After the battle, an epic staredown ensued...
Red won and got my money.
CPU needs some advantages for having literally no intelligence and the inability to switch Pokemon unless none of their moves can touch you.
I agree. And it makes sense that Red would win in a staredown. --- I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me. Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.
