Default Hitting through U-Turn?

So I was playing on NetBattle the other day, and my Scyther was up against a Jolteon. Lead Jolteon aren't likely to be Scarfed, and my Jolly Scyther is, so I know I'll outrun it. I know Jolteon's probably going to want to Thunderbolt me, so I U-Turn out, planning to switch to me Lanturn. For some weird reason, I damage him with U-Turn, but he ends up still hitting my Scyther with Thunderbolt, OHKOing it. WTH? If he were scarfed, he would go first, but I went first, so I know he's not scarfed. Plus, he uses Shadow Ball on my Lanturn. But how did he hit me then? Is it some kind of glitch or has some new pro item been introduced?

(47% damage)
Scyther went back to FrozenVirus!

It's super effective!

I asked him at the end of the match how he hit my Scyther, and he called me a sore loser. Wow. People these days.

Complete glitch as far as I'm aware, since your scyther wasnt physically in play. Perhaps jolteon was carrying quick claw or something and the program got the move ordering wrong. Either way this isn't what should happen with U Turn.

NetBattle is so glitchy.

My Scyther's been hit so many times (and OHKO'ed most of the time) with attacks even though it had already U-turned away.

Ugh...it's so annoying. It's made me lose quite a few games.

Well, it's the game's fault, not yours. My U-Turning Azelf has been hit by Crunches and Fire Blasts upon U-Turning out with over 540 Speed, and I never been entirely sure why. It doesn't happen nearly as often as it apparently happens to you, but it really gets me down.

If anything, you can be content with the fact that you would have most likely won those matches if your scouting strategy actually worked out.

Yeah, I'd heard that the DP update has lots of bugs in it. If I were you, I'd just use Shoddy. :3
