Maybe this was his first time playing? No ones ever an expert at the beginning.
This. My husband did all kinds of weird things when he started playing. And before playing competitively, I thought all moves that didn't deal damage were 'worthless' and never used them. So when I started training for VGC when I first decided to join in 3rd gen, I really had to change my mindset and was pretty crappy at the game in general in the beginning.
