Metapod will just have to harden and magikarp's aggressive nature will tire it to death.
Debate Round No. 1


The battle was poorly played. Moot video


Any pokemon can beat any pokemon using the focus sash, flail technique. Also metapod can only have harden in it's moveset meaning even just using flail on full hp it would eventually die of running out of pp as magikarp could use both splash and flail to keep itself occupied. This means technically metapod could never beat magikarp as it has no damage dealing moves and it's pp would run out.
Debate Round No. 2

Reasons for voting decision: Voting for Pro because Con's Round 2 argument is deeply flawed. Once a Pokemon runs out of PP for every move, they can use the move "Struggle" which deals damage. Therefore, since Metapod would reach that point first, by your (flawed) point that it can only have one move, it can more quickly begin to do damage. That being said, Metapod can also have tackle from the time before it evolved. Magikarp, on the other hand, learns tackle at level 15, so since you didn't specify level, there's a better chance it's below 15 than in the 15-20 range. Pro did not win this debate, Con lost it by using terrible argumentation. Plus a video of one battle is bad evidence, when I can find a contradictory one in under 5 minutes. Both categories go to Pro because of Con's incompetence rather than Pro's competence. S&G goes Con because Pro misspelled Magikarp in the resolution.

Reasons for voting decision: Battle provided a good example of how Magikarp can win. Pro chooses to deny evidence and instead provides no evidence on his behalf. Args to Con.
