Yeah, that went tits up really fast.

BTW, @Hero-of-Time, @Ugh first aid couldn't find your room, so it might be worth using a Link code.

EDIT: That cheer Defense boost was just the icing on the unlucky cake! Completely useless.

I've been fighting him on and off all day and I think the one that starts with a shield is the hardest version of him.

Ah. Pretty sure that one got more turns as well.

Why did that one get a barrier right away?

There's basically three different Mewtwos here. The Nasty Plot one, The Calm Mind one and the Physical based one. The Calm Mind one starts with a shield and gets 4 attacks, so it's by far the toughest one because Prankster isn't as effective.

Dunno. It's just one of the variations I've encountered during today's runs.

Have we got a full team then? If so I'll make it a private raid.

Wait, have you even got her on your friends list? Because that might be why she couldn't see you.

EDIT: Yeah, you don't. Her FC is 5697-4258-4783

Nope. I deleted everyone off it ages ago.

Yeah, she'll find it very hard to join your room then if you're the host.

Yep, you notice how there's no Max Raid option on the Y-Comm like with trades and battles? She has to join you with the stamp that pops up.

I was only watching and even I got annoyed! A true "unlimited force versus immovable object" scenario.

I had some uh, interesting battles last night.

They all all shiny (of course), apart from the Eevee. Not sure if they were a younger player or just messing around, but the Eevee used Helping Hand on the Solrock which used Cosmic Power... They used the Magikarp and used splash.

My first battle someone used the g-max Meowth and the new Meowth evo. I mean, good for you for using your favourites, I guess?

Prediction, or just luck?

Seeing all these posts here I really realize how much I'm missing out of this game without any Nintendo Online Subscription. 5 star/ gmax raids are close to impossible to handle for me with NPCs... but anyway, I finally managed to complete my Pokedex to 400 entries thanks to Pokemon Home and will now let this game rest until the DLC comes. :)

Very slick! Love it when I manage to totally blindside someone trying to use Roost. Corviknight users can be very easy to predict. They love running Roost. And my Excadrill loves smacking them with a Ground move when they try it.

My guess would be that Magikarp user was just in it for the shirt and wasn't even trying to win.

Until you face a Pokémon with Knock Off, yeah. Hate that move. :hehe: 

Anyway, it seems like once again I forgot to actually take part in any competition battles, so no Ball Guy T-Shirt for me. :woops:

Would be nice if there was some sort of in-game/system reminder if you’ve signed up to a competition.
