Just so you know.
From now on, after each gym leader, we're gonna get an update from the situation with out mystery psychopath! 83
Pokémon (C) Nintendo
I firmly stand by the notion that if ANY trainer deserves hype in a Nuzlocke comic, it's not Cynthia, it's not Wallace and it's CIRTAINLY not N, no no no, the trainer that deserves it the most, that'll ALWAYS be Red! B3
He's a bit tougher in Gen II, where Snorlax was broken and he had Espeon to be a Psychic type instead of a Lapras that does nothing that Blastoise didn't already do (Seriously its Water move is Brine). And that goes without mentioning the Hail, which helps two of his Pokemon and really only hinders the others.
The only thing he really tests is patience.
Misty, calm the heck down. There's no use nagging about battle styles when the challenger's Pokémon are over-leveled. The guy knew what he was doing, and the only reason why he lost his Mamoswine was purely bad luck. (Again, critical hits... Hate when that happens)
Sure, it's easy to just win a gym challenge by abusing type advantages, but sometimes not everyone has that luxury, so they have to come up with strategies in order to bypass that. What Sky is showing here is that sometimes you don't even need type advantages to win a battle. You just need to know your limits. He did know his limits, but that freaking critical hit combined with confusion was something he didn't see coming. So, really, there's no point in arguing about it here.
"Ice is both extremely hard and terribly fragile at the same time. Depending on what Pokémon you have and what moves they use, I could be the most challenging opponent yet or I could be a total pushover. But that's all right. That's how it should be!" -Wulric, Snowbelle City gym leader.
Er, anyways... You're not listening. Type advantages aren't everything. Sure, it's easy to win a match by using moves your opponent is weak against, but not everyone has that luxury. Sky wanted to mix things up a bit to show the world that you don't need type advantages to win a match... With enough determination and persistence (and by that I mean level grinding), along with a good strategy and knowledge of your own limits, anything is possible. Losing Master Don was just bad luck, and could've easily won against your Lapras if not for that confusion/crit combo. It's those kinds of things that are difficult to see coming.
