RSE Super Tough Contest

It's only fitting that Princess Leia won this one. More seriously, Kina was pretty well on track to clinch the win, or at least a tie, until Tyranitar decided to lay the startles on thick.

Lot of crowd manipulation and copy-jam shenanigans. Sir Cutesykins tried to game the CM but got denied by Undyne, who in turn received some pretty severe bullying from Pikachu.

ORAS Hyper Smart Contest
Nervous/OP Combo Clauses On

Althusser tried to use Psywave, and while Kauri was all for it, Espeon's legal moveset wasn't. From there, it almost made a great comeback, but Cerebral Assassin's steady Curse->Assurance combo kept the points flowing steadily, if not as lucratively as Enigmatic Incarnation's. Bean didn't have much of a shot at the prize, so it settled for startling Althusser out of second place.

RSE Normal Tough Contest

Reshiram played a condition-based long game, landing on a crowd boost that rocketed its score upward. Cubone and Perrserker both played with unusual combos, such as Bone-based moves for Cubone and Scratch into Fury Swipes on Perrserker, but Cubone managed to snag much greater earnings. Palmer's copies were well-timed, but a lack of Tough moves left it struggling to keep up.

Handa Sei's moves were well-tailored to what it was doing; not even startles against the moves it copied could stop it. Basil did well by making use of Smart moves, taking the time to startle Zoroark out of second place at the very end. Youana lacked Smart contest tools and mostly startled.

This was a really close contest and I loved it. Chilly kept everyone on their toes with Pound->Double Slap combos, but never had any combo setters to properly frighten. Vanish mostly jockeyed for position-based moves, also earning a tasty chunk of points near the end thanks to a crowd boost. Leonidas and Virgo mostly played the Tough angle hard, and Leonidas might have had a shot at the prize with a +2 condition Rock Smash if Vanish hadn't risked a Brave Bird at the very end.

Roderick fell behind due to missing out on a copy early on, and then getting screwed into first position in the last round by Panto, who thrived off of a healthy balance of appeals. Centiskorch got in a good Power Whip and a few risky moves, but didn't really tangle with anyone except for locking the CM in the middle of the contest, but considering that the CM never even got close to 5, it only had a minor effect on the others.

that sure was a contest

Crowd blew up three times, Rho wormed its way into a Dragon Tail -> Dragon Rage combo, ExistentialDark helped Invictus take second with a last-second startle. Quite the odd one all 'round.

Tyranitar was the only one who really acknowledged that this was a Tough contest, but also went more for startles than high appeals. Durian tried to Swords Dance->X-Scissor its way to victory, but a well-timed copy from Omicron combined with high appeals all-around allowed it to come out juuust ahead.

Everyone decided it was Condition Time and then, with the exception of Spiritomb, proceeded into Combo Time. Dragonite ran out with the ribbon despite taking jam from a repeated move. Getting the Dragon Rage combo when you're in last position is fierce.
