    I did. Given the close proximity, and the fact that they're the same height when aipom is on it's tail, it wouldn't have made sense for it to have hit any where else. With all the rain and water attacks coming your way, it might get some of that cleared up, though.

    Right, well thanks for the heads up, I appreciate it! =)

    Orders up... you're next (class got cancelled, yay!)

    Also, welcome to FB! Don't forget to pick up your rare candy today itself!

    I say pro tip as a figure of speech, I don't consider myself pro in any way. I'm merely explaining what would make sense for me, as a ref, if I saw. Not trying to offend you, in fact, I'm not doubting you're more experienced than I am, I'm just trying to help you get used to my ref style so you can order what you want to happen.

    Sorry I wasn't clear.

    That's fair. Pro tip: pointing stuff out like that in orders should make it more likely to happen. Descriptive orders, yay!

    I reffed Fake Out the same way as that scenario, Tan-tan was sitting, waiting to Fake Out anything Pental did, unfortunately, that was a supersonic. Just like Azumarril's dive was able to work around the Fake Out, so was supersonic, to an extent.

    I also, do not intend on RNGing much at all, but I couldn't justify skipping an RNG on something that's ONLY purpose is to incite confusion, and was successful for about a second... If it was a secondary effect on an attack, I probably would have skipped the roll, but the ONLY purpose of supersonic is confusion, and it normally has a very high chance of success.

    As for the effectiveness, I agree, which is why you had a lenient confusion check(which was RNG'd due to having a chance of success, otherwise I simply would have downplayed the effect of your attack), and also it will take less damage/concentration to knock your confusion out.

    If you had gone first, you would have done a Light hit, knocked Pental back, and then Pental would have used supersonic with a 15+ roll on the RNG. The way I reffed it, is you did a Light hit, knocked Pental back, and you were faced with a 90+ roll on the RNG to test confusion.

    I honestly felt I was doing you an unfair favor by having you go second, doubting the RNG would produce confusion from the <1 second of supersonic.

    Unfortunately, the RNG was not in your favor, but due to your orders, the odds certainly were.

    If you still think it's unfair, I'm more than willing to hear you out more, but I just don't see any other logical outcome from the two orders. It's foolish to think that Pental would completely forget its orders to use supersonic simply because it was startled right away.

    I mean, if you could find a good counter-example from an established ref, I'll reconsider, but it seems like common sense to me that fake out wouldn't be able to stop an instantaneous attack before it starts. If it was something like a round, you would have taken less damage, and supersonic, which normally has "a very high chance of confusion" being reduced to a 90+ roll on the RNG seems sufficiently stopped to me.

    This way works better for you. If Fake Out had gone first, it woulda startled Pental BEFORE he started his supersonic. The only reason Fake Out worked is because Takku did not order Pental to wait for the Fake Out to finish.

    The reason you're still confused is because being a sound attack, Supersonic was able to start working immediately, and with a VERY low chance(I rolled a 94, given only 90-100 odds) you ended up still getting confused. If he had ordered any attack that required and sort of conversion of energy, or start-up time whatsoever, fake out would have completely negated it.

    Try to order Fake-Out going second in the future, so you can completely ensure it's effective.

    On the plus side, a similarly high RNG roll(much better odds, albeit) is the only reason your Round managed to work.

    I would say no as a Pokemon should be able to Teleport to places they've been before or short distances to avoid attacks. If your Ralts Teleported to Mystery Island there could be a chance he'd miss by miles and you'd be falling through the air to meet a sticky end. I'd pick another area of the CG to adventure in.
