So, I was on random wi-fi, facing a Politoed (Rain Dance team, a textbook one with Kingdra too -_-), I sleep his Politoed with Lilligant, then Quiver Dance, it wakes up and I sleep it again, then it wakes up when I'm at +5 in Special Attack, Special Defence, and Speed and kills me with Ice Beam which critical hits, it's just, AAAAAAAAAARRRRGH!!!!

The whole "Critical Hits bypass defence boosts" is really stupid, I should have survived that, EASILY, but no, like every other time I try to wall a foe to hell the RNG decides to take a dump on me and give the foe a critical hit, ugh -_-

I was so angry I even rage quit, something I rarely do.

No, not really. It's like your opponent left a hole in their armor, and you exploit it. Doesn't matter how much armor they put on if they have that hole.

Point 1: The fact you did this makes it so hard to care
Point 2: That mechanism is to balance out against walling. One of the hardest thing about using defensive Pokemon is the eventual critical hit.
Point 3: Why did you even Dance so many times... 5 is overkill.

What's even worse is that critical hits bypass attack and special attack drops too. Ever had your specially bulky heatran under SUNLIGHT critted twice in a row by a life orb latios who was at -6 from using draco meteor three times?

Logic in pokemon is stupid but I can somewhat see crits piercing defense buffs. Compare a defense buff to a soldier putting on a protective helmet. A critical hit would be a lucky blow that managed to pierce the helmet and hit his/her skull.

But yeah. it's still dumb as hell. Also why I quit using Cosmic Power sigilyph.

I disagree with the rage quoting but I've always thought it was kind of stupid to bypass the stat boosts when calculating Criticals

And that's what makes Sniper Kingdra so cool.

1: Rage quitting = for shame
2: When you censor a word, you can't leave the first letter still in, it should all be asterisks. As such, enjoy this topic's deletion.

2) Actually, the rule was changed. Now it's first letter and length, not first letter or length.

1: Indeed.
2: lol no
Wait a minute... how can someone who's Lv 35 not know this? Oh yeah, and cheese.
Go ahead. You can disagree with me. No pressure. Except for that gun against your head.
