So, I was watching this Showdown match and there's this guy with a very annoying

Slowbro set that has Block/Recycle/Slack Off/Heal Pulse. Yes that set is easily defeat-able but if done correctly you can make the battle last forever until whoever decides to quit/give up. I hope GF has an answer to this because looking at it I felt back for "Tipoo", this isn't skill, it's just being a dick.

I know the replay stopped at Turn 164 but this went on until Tipoo lost due to inactivity like turn 300 or something like that.

That's not the point, like I said this moveset doesn't take anything special to beat it. It's that if you misplay or you find yourself unable to beat it then you're stuck in a "lock" so to speak. :/

If you fall to PP stall like that set, it's obvious that you've misplayed. If you think you can still do something, do something, but when a strategy like that with plenty of obvious counters and countermeasures stymies you sometimes it's worth falling on your own sword.

By the way, you would have hated competitive Generation 2 - it was all about stall and passive effects. GSC even had the nickname around where I was of Great Stalling Contest.

Impossible when you're blocked with block on a mon without any of those moves.

I was in that battle it was fun. Relados joined to and no action happened.

Well, then you got outplayed :P

Trapping moves are fundamentally powerful if you do them right.
