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.

Yeah sure, no reason not to

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)

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

by
That opponent was pretty nooby. It's easy to defeat FEAR just by switching, and he didn't do it.

Unexpected OU battle

NOTE: A spectator does swear in the comments, so beware.

I can't help but notice...Why does Tapu Koko know spark when it can learn wild charge?
I don't really like recoil moves. I know it does more damage, but I really dislike the effect recoil (especially with hyper-offensive/low defense opponents), so I chose Spark instead. I know it might have been better if I used Wild Charge, but it is just a personal preference.

Guard split smeargle strategy going confusingly
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7doublesou-579944149

by
Why do you insist on using Smeargle when Porygon2 is obviously better in almost every way?
I don't do it for viability I just do it for fun lol
I have my own competitive team
In that case, then it's okay.

Why would you use shadow shield (or multiscale, there's really no difference) in Hackmons when there are so many better abilities?
Better protection against people trying to start by sweeping with Ghost moves. Also partly because I couldn't think of anything better at the time. (The team's not meant to be competitive anyway, but it was really weird how many people I actually beat :P)

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

by
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%.
