From: Time Lady (sailrgal@swbell.net) Subject: [PW!][League]Sarah Jane vs Dan - final match Newsgroups: alt.games.nintendo.pokemon Date: 2000/03/22 A few things before this post begins. This match was decided via an online battle between me and Kirb, using our chars pokemon and perfect stats, and moderated by a fellow PW person (who, after he sees what I say, will be glad I didn't mention names). At first the moderator was using a program developed by a fellow pokemon fan as a battler. This proved to be rather flawed as odd hits were coming out with innacurate points, and partway through the match the moderator switched to using a calculator and pad. A couple of days later, after reviewing the match, I proposed to Kirb that we redo the match. Kirb refused. The match you see has been edited by Kirb, with a few comments added in by Jeff Hauser (Damian's RL), who could not attend. The unedited version of the battle is available for review upon emailed request. Announcer: Welcome again to Indigo Stadium! Today's battle will be the final battle of the League's 7+ bracket, Sarah Jane Eckert vs. Dan of Pallet Town! It looks like they're ready to start, so may the best trainer win! Sarah Jane sends out Tauros! Dan sends out Dewgong! Audience member: Woo! Tauros Inexperienced Announcer: Sarah sends in that bull thing! There is a sealion over there! Damian: <facefaults> SarahJaneEckert: Okay.... let's go Ferdinand.... Audience member: Not that I'm going for anyone, I just like Tauros....Ferdinand? Go Dewgong! The pokemon are of completely different types! Tauros makes the first move, with Hyper Beam! 208 damage! Dewgong counters with Blizzard! 173 damage! Tauros is Frozen Solid! Inexperienced Announcer: Ice cream will be sold on the side lines. Dan: :-) Audience member: Wooo! Dewgong Announcer: The artic mammal unelashes it's wrath on tauros which is unfortunate enough to be frozen. Sarah Jane calls back Ferdinand, and in its place sends Cherry Bomb the electrode! Dewgong uses Rest! it regained health! Inexperienced Trainer: Hit the dirt! Inexperienced Announcer: Why are they sleeping? Isn't this a battle? Shields: >_< Dan calls back Dewgong, and in its place sends MAROWAK, the evolution of Cubone! The Electrode's Thunderbolt fails! Announcer: Looks like that change of pokemon wasn't such a good idea.
