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.

Hey, we allow 3DS replays, right?
Yeah sure, no reason not to
Unbelievable 6-0 Mega Xard sweep!

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.

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

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.

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

...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

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%.

Hello!

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!

First the guy tells me I made a bad play. Then he says GG way before the end of the battle. Then I obliterate his last four Pokemon.

Unexpected OU battle

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.
