Price/Power (0/5)
6 icons is rarely enough, I doubt even a fish would fall for this. Add in the idea that it is a species restricted item and you have yet another weapon for the ever growing "avoid" pile.

Countermeasures (0/5)
Anything. Really at this level of attack even another offensive weapon could be a good counter for this since simply doing more icons would be worth more then reducing this.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Just get a Throwing Cutlass instead- does the same icons with some bonus- isn't species restricted- and is super cheap to boot.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Nets only work in combat when you use them as a trap- this item sounds like you are just using it as a whip instead... which is really odd. Technically you would expect a net item to have the same effect as a freezing item- or at least force their order of movement behind yours no matter the order of the button click- but this doesn't happen. It is for this reason and many others that this item has easily earned its 1/10 mark.

Overview: If there was a move where you could get the opponent to laugh themselves to death, the Koi Battle Net would be the ultimate weapon.

The Good: Umm... Right. Let's just get to the part where I list the bad things.

The Bad: So here we go in list mode for the bad stuff.
  • It's a species weapon. While that's not a deal-breaker, it loses some points in my book if it's not awesome like Kacheek Life Potion
  • It consists of the two most-widely-blocked icons of all time in the low-lever-battlers. With Parasol of Unfortunate Demise and Leaf Shield being the first two shields considered for most battlers, the Battle Net doesn't stand a chance.
  • Even without these weaknesses, the Koi Battle Net still only delivers six icons. Bow of the Hegelob and Essence of Esophagor are some reasonably priced upgrades to this weak weapon.
  • Let's say you can forgive everything else about this weapon... Even then you'd be better off with the much-cooler-looking Mallard Tape, which is not a weapon I'm particularly fond of.

The Ugly Truth: I think the only reason this weapon exists is to make other weapons look good.
