Lost in Maison again...

#1olduser2000Posted 8/9/2014 10:16:16 PM
Super Triples, Battle No. 538 - TTFG-WWWW-WWW9-XM8H

I actually lost to a legendary team. The loss itself snuck up on me; I could have won if Hitmonlee didn't hurt itself in confusion. When it did, I had no more out's for Regirock. I could have played things differently. I let a busted Tornadus live because CB Brave Bird is not a garunteed 1HKO.

I will never reach my personal goal of 1000 straight wins in the Battle Maison. Hats off to the dozen or so people who have done it. I'm not going to take this streak to Smogon because I have failed, and I already have two over there (but I deleted the proof video). My best is 753 straight wins.

Team for the record (the order matters a lot too):

Talonflame @ Choice Band w/Gale WIngs
Adamant, +HP +ATK
-Brave Bird
-U-Turn
-Flare Blitz
-Steel Wing (never used)

Hitmonlee @ Focus Sash w/Unburden
Adamant, +ATK, +SPD
-Fake Out
-Helping Hand
-Close Combat
-Protect

Kangaskhan @ Kangaskhanite w/Scrappy
Adamant (switched from Jolly in Maison),+ATK, +SPD
-Fake Out
-Crunch
-Return
-Brick Break (would rather have Drain Punch)

The strategy for the starting three is to Fake-Out two things and Brave Bird whatever is weakest to it. I've never seen a single Quick Guard in the Maison, but I've been told that it's there somewhere.

Garchomp @ Choice Scarf w/Rough Skin
Adamant, +ATK, +SPD
-Dragon Claw
-Earthquake
-Crunch
-Iron Head

Zapdos @ Life Orb w/Pressure
Timid, +SPA, +SPD
Thunderbolt
Discharge
Hidden Power Ice (caught a sub perfect one and stuck with it. didn't make a difference in loss)
Protect

Greninja @ Expert Belt w/Protean < Team MVP this time around, was much better with Mat Block
Timid, +SPA, +SPD
Scald
Ice Beam
Dark Pulse
Mat Block

Meant to say - I'm officially done with the Battle Maison, and gradually Pokemon X/Y, since the Maison has been 75% of my game experience.

Oh, I know that's likely. This is the one thing I've chosen to do well at in this game so I have high standards for myself.

I'm used to seeing other people's Maison streaks on wifi. I've never seen one higher than 330. That was back when mine was...189...so it pushed me to do better (he was using cheap Legendaries).

Don't mean to sound like a jerk though. I have over 25,000BP, so I better have a nice streak.

You can't use legends on Maison though :/

I know and congrats on your streak anyway! :) Perhaps you can do more in ORAS if there is a similar institution!

You can use some. Whether TC's opponent was using legendaries that are allowed in the Maison wasn't stated, but sounds unlikely.
