So, earlier at work I was on a break and headed to the arena. Long story short I was fighting a tryko with my indoraptor. It was at a point where I was guessing they would use their instant invincibility shield, and I did not have my shield breaking move available - so I switched to my spinotauschus - which happened first as all swap moves do. Their tryko did indeed then show the priority animation and deploy the invincible shield. No big deal since I was going to go with my bleed move and do some DoT to finish their tryko… only, right after the shield move, their tryko hits me with a rampage.
How did they get to go first? In my mind my swap and their shield was one turn, which should then go to the next turn, in which case I was faster and should have gotten to go first, right?
I ended up losing the battle. I wouldn’t go so far as to say because of that, but it certainly didn’t help me out.
Shouldn’t I have gotten to go first? Am I missing something?
