So, for those who cannot read, you guys post battle replays here. Note, your replays should be interesting battles - there should be something special about the game you post. This means that unless there's something particularly interesting in them, sweep replays shouldn't be posted as they're not very entertaining.

Did you hear that? Don't post a replay because you want to humblebrag about a sweep you made! Replays should be entertaining.

Also, replays from the lower ladder are probably not going to be as entertaining due to skill errors, misplays and bad teams. "Lower ladder" means roughly <1400 Elo.


Accidental Torkoal sweep in OU against all odds - Blob
Emolga going to work in OU - Fondant
Incredibly close UU battle :O - Fizz
Lenub be haxing his wins - Leboss
Rather embarrassing noob swept by an Espeon - Flare
A victory despite constant hax against a rather amusing opponent - Star
Epic UU battle of the UU Leaders - Flafpert
Slowbro is the master race, OU vs Mew - Ninja

Just made an ou team which really showcases how powerful tapu koko+ kyurem is in this meta:

@Blaziken787 That's a Perish Trapper Azu what's weird in that?

Lethargic ball whale outspeeds overrated fire dragon thing and causes all the salt in the pacific ocean to get sprinkled over the charizard's trainer

Magearna is unstoppable

Okay, so maybe I lied, Magearna is actually stoppable

Salty guy lol

Hypnosis lands 5 times in a row without any accuracy boosts. Also Darkrai completely demolishes a team

They were really bad lol. No more spoilers

This was my longest battle ever. Whenever I have time to waste, I'll probably watch this on really slow mode

This kid was pretty dumb lol

Ah yes. Using Choice-locked Dark Pulse is apparently a sign of homosexuality

Last time playing with Magearna. Some fun stuff happens in this game too

Yes, because using Dragon Dance obviously means you're cheating. SS is hackerman confirmed?

Lmao this idiot actually goes for the Sleep Powder in Misty Terrain. Also they're using Blaze Incineroar. Why? I have absolutely no clue.

Sand balance causes salt

Is this the closest battle ever?

uh why is this the most upvoted replay here lol
seriously there are way more entertaining replays than this
Because nobody likes charizard?
i love charizard lol
Same, but its overrated
I agree. If it had a better Special move pool though
They are Choice Specs! CHOICE SPECS
Im assuming that since he doesn't know about Specs he probably doesnt have any items on his Pokemon lol

lmao. i would upvote if i could
The opponent is 100% made of salt :X
That kid is very rude!
The only reason he should say something like that is if you had mega rayquaza.
Mega Rayquaza is banned from [gen 7 Ubers] :P

Primal, can I also battle you in gen 7 Ubers? I have a team too
I know. That's why I specified mega ray, because that's the only pokemon that would deserve such words in ubers.
Actually, if we are talking about Gen 8 Ubers, Zacian-C is the most Overpowered pokemon

Preview: Mamoswine sweeps 5/6 of this guy's team using the moves Endeavor, Ice Shard, Protect, and Curse. Mamoswine gets in one last Endeavor for the last member of the opponent's team. The last member gets killed with just a simple Toxic.

To be honest, that guy was kind of a noob. Trying Volt Switch twice on a Ground type? Bounce on Zeraora?
Still, nice job.

Incredibly close UU battle against a not very favorable matchup.

Luckily critical hits ignores all stat boosts.
And Rayquaza manages to land a critical hit using Dragon Ascent on a +6 Def Arceus and I won.

the fact that he ggied thinking that he will win xd

LC Benchmark Game (watch if you want to learn/play LC!)

This is honestly an excellent game to teach LC with, almost a benchmark. Both players were solid but not exceptional. Both had tried and true cores on their teams mixed with a little innovation. Both made excellent plays and strategy but also making dumb mistakes.

If I ever get back into competitive Pokémon — although highly unlikey — LC is what I want to play :0

A really fun back-and-forth Primal Groudon/Kyogre standoff: https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ubers-611501449

(I thought for sure that it was over after that switch on turn 9)

Nice comeback.
Tyranitar spamming focus punch vs power-up punch dusknoir. Who would win(That actually happened to me, and good comeback).

Lmao me and Primal had PP wars.
Primal eventually did forfeit, but it was still fun as hell for me to go Darkceus against Darkrai.

Haha that was fun

PrimalKyogre in 2020: We all know that Kyurem-White spams Draco Meteor which Primal Kyogre can easily beat.

Me right now: What happens when you bring a 5/6 Kyurem-White weak team to an opponent who uses that Pokemon

Freeze Dry to PrimalKyogre: Am I a joke to you?

PrimalKyogre's salt: And Primal Kyogre wins against specs Kyurem-White, defensive Kyurem White is something I’ve never seen since no-one uses Kyurem-White

The feeling when you stall for 228 turns to lose by timer

Most satisfying ragequit against a haxer

And was Primal Kyogre in gen 8 AG?
That doesn't matter. Both Primal Kyogre and Kyogre lose to Kyurem-White, but what you told is very silly and I'm laughing at that.

My first battle in the new OM. I fought someone that ignored the fact that the name of the tier is "The loser's game"
Sorry if this was not high elo, but nobody is high elo and this guy was funny.

The FEAR strategy put into life
...In an ubers match
...With bad Pokemon
...That only know 2 moves
...Endeavor and Quick Attack

That opponent was pretty nooby. It's easy to defeat FEAR just by switching, and he didn't do it.
Epic, pretty fun to watch
NOOB he could have used Psyshock. the idiot, using recover when you're faster than the opponent

We even both said GG to each other we were so certain my chansey would go down.
Then this 1% chance occurred

I'm pretty sure it's not exactly 1%. High jump kick's accuracy is 90%, so the chance that it misses is 100%-90%, or 10%. Rock slide's accuracy is also 90%, so the chance that they both miss is 100%-90%-90%, which is -80%.
Actually sumwun, that's not how probability works.  Now, I don't know whether Syleno was just trying to be hyperbolic by saying 1%, but he's actually right.  The chance of HJK missing is 10% of 100%, which is simply 10%.  Then, the chance of RS missing *on top* of HJK is 10% of 10%, or 1%.

OU match where I bring slightly unethical sets. Brought down the match to a scary endgame of Specs Keldeo.

Oh, boy, this was a pretty fun battle. It was me against ~MegaCharizardY~ (or Y for short) in a Gen 5 Random Battle. Unfortunately, she disconnected halfway through, meaning the ending is just a timer ticking down. Still, this was quite fun. I got quite lucky, but we both had our moments. In addition, we each had some odd and/or interesting Pokémon on our team.

I Hope you enjoy!

Don’t mind the chat :P
lol :P
