That one extra second after selecting a move that signalizes it missed....

    How do you feel during it? :0

    Describe 2 me just WHAT new and sudden emoti courses it's way through your mind when it happens. In vivid detail if you so please.

    The miss that meant the Toxic on your Pokemon would ensure it's demise. The miss that allowed your opponent 2 gain the extra stat boost that would more then certainly result in an unchecked rampage through the Poketeam you so carefully thought out. The miss that you DIDN'T deserve, but got anyways so your opponent could eliminate the only viable counter you had 4 his/her strategy. The miss that would've otherwise meant victory everlasting.

    Now, indulge in your unmerited turns so that I may allow myself 2 acquire sustenance from your negative emoti.../shuppet

    TL;DR: No one likes the one cringe-worthy extra second after picking an attack! It means you've missed AND THAT'S NO GOOD. How do you feel during that one second? I'm not talking about AFTER, man! I'm talking about DURING. RIGHT THEN, YA DIG?

    Haha, I hate that moment. My mind realises the move's missed, but the game's displayed the miss message almost simultaneously. I feel so annoyed, yet I kind of hope that there's a chance the move didn't miss before the message appears. Sometimes, I think a move's going to miss, but it was just my eyes deceiving me. I both like and hate those moments, as something that's not-really-any-good-but-uplifting comes out of the situation.

    Every Pokemon in my team knows a move that doesnt miss, so if the Foe uses Double Team/Minimize, I can still hit it, nya~

    At that one second, I do this:

  15. If U Seek Amy

    If U Seek Amy i am a god

    Even with things to boost accuracy, moves like Focus Blast become Focus Miss... I hate it, especially when I am in desperation for one good powerful move to KO the opponent...

    Omigod, when my moves missed I start cursing to myself because I'm always against advanced challengers and it sucks when you had an upper hand. Like, imagin everything comes down to one pokemon against the opponents pokemon and you go first but... miss -.-' It makes me sooo angry, its not even funny. But anyway, if it was vice versa I'd be so incredibly happy! xD

    Anyways, I just spout cursing in my head.
