Longest 1 vs. 1 battle of all time

So, if you didn't know, for all of June (as in, until Sunday), Smogon's "Other Metagame of the Month" is 1 vs. 1. This is exactly what it sounds like; don't know the specifics of the rules but it is fun and usually < 10 turns.

Unless you end up with this. 68 turns between a para-flinch Jirachi with Wish and Recycle as its two other moves (besides the mandatory Iron Head and Thunder Wave) holding a Lum Berry and a Cresselia with Moonlight, Psychic, Ice Beam, and Toxic holding Leftovers; definitely a stall set. Watch on very fast and feel free to skip turns between when Jirachi starts spamming Thunder Wave and about turn 60.

I've had a lot of success with this Jirachi; made it to the mid-1700s in ranking (which I think means "above mediocre"). The most unexpected thing about it is how well it deals with status conditions that aren't STUPID LEECH SEED. Recycle + Lum Berry is great for both stalling status users and just surviving status in general. Also great against anyone who uses Swagger.

I like how you said good luck only after paralyzing him, right before going for the paraflinch kill.

I had a battle in the Battle subway where the only pokemon that were left were my skarmory and enemie Amoonguss.

Skarmory: Leftovers
Steel Wing
Toxic
Fly
Protect

Ammongus: Leftovers
Ingrain
Giga Drain
Synthesis
Toxic

Took 1/2 an hour, i literaly had to wait for the ammongus to start struggling because Fly would miss a bunch, steel wing did nothing, and he had so much healing it was just silly.

You didn't even need to read the log to know what TC was trying to do.
