    You're meant to announce what items you both have equipped BEFORE you start fighting, dopes.

    Well, yeah, okay, we'll do that when real battles happen, but since this is a sparring round I was thinking we could just try out how our items work with no limitations

    Well sure, you can if you'd like. It's a bit unfair to spring an item on an opponent without them knowing you had it is all. But I'm not going to reprimand anyone for practicing however they want to practice.

    With the SPD attack my HP is reduced to 120!

    ...all I have left is my 30 MAG to attack with xD

    I currently have 40 MAG, so you lose 10 HP.

    So we went through all the stats now, right? Which means that you win with 110 HP, and I'm left with 85 HP

    I've learned that I should use items early, to stall for more time to get the enemy's stats down.

    Yeah, that's definitely the strategy for you. Always use Acid Rain early.

    Unless the enemy has a high MAG stat

    If the enemy has a high MAG stat I'm screwed. They'll probably start with that stat, rendering Acid Rain unuseable. I need to avoid anyone with that! Though if they don't use it first, after 4 turns the loss to MAG evens itself out.

    The game ends after 4 stats have been played. You don't go through all 5

    Everyone has 400 points divvied up between 5 stats, so if a game simply went "stat, stat, stat, stat, stat' the outcome would always be a draw. So yeah, a game ends after 4 to avoid that.

    If you guys want to have another practice battle let me know and maybe I'll moderate it so you guys get an idea of what it will look like in an actual game. I told Bubba I'd do this for his next match as well.

    Good to see you guys starting to strategise though!

    But just to be clear - that only pertains to dealing HP damage, correct? If I use Demi to lower an opponent's stat, that doesn;t count as using a stat, right?

    Correct. Using Demi is counted as an ability turn. A stat turn is when you use a stat to attack.
