Either in game or in competitive battles with other players.
For me, it was in 4th gen where I was battling a hail team. I had spun away all hazards and even used sunny day to get rid of the hail. It came down to my shedinja vs. my opponent's walrein at half of its health. I figured that I had won because I managed to hide shedinja until now and walrein never carries attacks that shedinja would be weak to anyway. It couldn't have been carrying toxic either, as the guy seemed to be relying on toxic spikes for that.
Then my shedinja gets hit by hidden power, triggering its focus sash. Before I lose, I ask my opponent what type of hidden power he had. He told me it was hidden power rock because it helped against pokemon that walrein had issues with, such as fire types. --- Brawl FC - 1332 8069 6690 http://i.imgur.com/OZ9aS.png
I was playing a metronome only lv 100 clefable battle with my friend once. He got guillotine and missed, horn drill and hit, fissure and hit, sheer cold twice one hit and one missed, then got my final clefable with an explosion...
I missed a crucial attack or my opponent got a crucial crit.
It happens all the time. Just an hour ago or something I would've beaten a pretty good player 1900+ points on showdown. It came down to my Mienshao and his Tyranitar. Of course my Hi Jump Kick misses so his Tyranitar could KO me.
Stuff like that happens all the time though. After trying to get higher in the ranks it happens more and more. Critical hit / miss and it's gg. I'm starting to really dispise competitive Pokemon again (just like always, it's just that somehow I always get back to it....).
In the ends it's just a waste of time and you get dragged down by misses/crits/other lucky ****. --- I'm a the Luigi master! www.freewebs.com/luigi_player/
Literally the most brainless, cowardly, childish tactic ever. It exists purely to troll people and is the definition of anti-fun. The only reason anyone uses it is because they're still little kids that get enjoyment out of using the most boring playstyle to piss people off. --- XBL GT: ReptileAssassin.

Seems like you've run into Sableye and Porygon2. --- **** you SE for trolling us with that TWEWY port. I hate you.
