Can we please get the older, old forum back?
I didn’t choose Piplup. I picked Chimchar as my starter and I didn’t have a Mantyke. Besides I’m playing the game by the rules and it isn’t unfair as I literally only had one Pokémon left when she sent out Garchomp and it took a really long time to get Garchomp only have Swords Dance and Poison Jab. About twenty minutes. The only Pokémon I had that was immune to EQ was too under leveled to fight Garchomp and went down with Dragon Claw and Poison Jab a lot and Quagsire got extremely lucky that Milotic didn’t one shot it and it was able to use Toxic on Milotic before the Flame Orb Burn effect could happen.
Again, I'm not berating you and I'm not saying you should use the pokémon I picked or the strategy I'm using or anything. I was just saying what I'm doing to counter her.
So you had one pokémon left and she only had Garchomp left? You have two hundred Revives/Full Restores and she has.. two, maybe three? Personally, I think that is unfair because there's a massive unbalance going into the battle between the two opponents when you're using way more items then Cynthia in order to stall her out - but by the rules of the game, yeah, fair play.
However, I'm about 99% sure that a lot of people would be screaming high and low if a NPC spammed 100 Revives on the player.
