AznSeal's Murphy's Laws of Competitive Pokemon

1. If you have a chance to win with Hydro Pump/Blizzard/Fire Blast/Thunder, the move will always miss

2. The above is also true for moves such as Draco Meteor/Overheat/Leaf Storm

3. Freaking Shandera

4. If the outcome of the game is decided on a speed tie, you'll always loose

5. Your moves will always do the lowest possible damage during crucial moments of the battle.

6. Waterfall/Rock Slide will always make you flinch when you have a chance to survive it and OHKO back.

7. Your opponent's protect will work 3 times in a row and force you to die to toxic/WoW damage when you have lethal next turn

8. 7. Freaking Shandera

9. Your WoW will always miss on the incoming Scizor you predicted. Always.

10. Your opponent will always score a critical on you to kill your +6'd CMed or BUed pokemon.

11. Your opponent will always wake up the turn after you use Spore/Sleep Powder and OHKO you when you think it's safe to set up.

12. Whenever you're testing out a weather team, your opponent will just happen to carry the weather poke that counters yours on his team.

13. Only when you're paralyzed, that 25% chance of not being able to move is raised to 100%.

14. Your opponent topdecks Day of Judgment followed by Gideon....nvm wrong game

15. FREAKING SHANDERA -______________________-

[quote=kajmir34]I hate when I switch in my sableye to cripple a physical attacker and the opponent knows this yet he has not seen my sableye yet and does not know I have one. So he switches into a shandera and makes my sableye useless. Happens to me ALL the time.[/quote]

hence FREAKING SHANDERA

@aznseal: Down B with MK KO's faster. >.>

@Jiggoha It always shoots you straight to the side when you try to go diagonally.

If you take the chance to survive a hit.
It happens to be a critical.

[quote=Golfek]You forgot about Flare Blitz. And when you really want to use Dive/Dig/Fly/Bounce, your opponent will always 1hitKO you before you do even though those attacks are like Quick Attack/Fake Out and should hit before all other attacks. (Thats how the guy you battle after N beat me like 2 times) Oh, and Dusk balls are extremely affective on the new legendary dog things EXCEPT Verizion. Its impossible to pass through Giant Chasm and find the legendary there. (I can't find a way past the 2nd room)
ASH KETCHUM IS A HACKER BECAUSE HIS PIKACHU'S THUNDERBOLT 1HITKO'D A GEODUDE. <---Most important fact right there.

@kh26 Turns out, Pikachu's Final Smash can be strengthened by tapping the attack button repeatedly. (It says in the Trophy description)
6. When trying to get Toon Link, the cannons will always get you right before you kill him if you are at 150+%.
7. Falco, Fox, and Wolf don't mix with small stages.[/quote]

Fox loves small stages. Usmash KOs faster.
