Him switching out Greninja screwed him over.

How one Sticky Web can ruin a whole match for the unprepared.
Goes to show the relevance of speed if anyone still isn't clear on the matter.
Poor Arwinghead, though. Crippling its speed can really kill it.

Not changing this sig until I have at least one Shiny version of each Eeveelution.
1/9 done.

I don't get why he switched back to Greninja after I KO'd Archeops. Greninja had the advantage over all my remaining Pokemon other than Mawile. Wouldn't it have been better to switch to Machamp? Obviously Malamar is weak to Bug-type attacks, and Charizard is weak to Electric-type attacks (Unless Charizard Mega Evolved) but wouldn't Machamp be able to take a hit and KO Galvantula if it stayed in? I'm new to competitive battling so I might be missing something, but I just don't see his logic.

Same, it's good but also pretty frail. Sash is common with it.

It's hilarious to use against people that don't know what they're doing though (obviously the guy the TC was facing).

All he had to do was stay in. Maybe not even go for Toxic Spikes turn one against Galv. Switching it out and back in (thus being affected by Sticky Web) was beyond dumb.

This is why you need a rapid spinner.

or defog or something.

or even a magic bouncer.

Good to see the little spider doing some damage. Sticky web is a godsend for the little guy.

I once on Youtube had someone send me a PM that speed isn't important. Yeah, tell that to anyone who plays competitively.

He had a Malamar and wasn't running Contrary on it? A big ole "WAT?"
