Re: VS thread
Shikamaru would be useful against Sakura. But then Naruto knocks the shit out of him. XD One finger tap sends Ino flying.
Maybe this could be a better setup.
Shikamaru has prep time, and Naruto can go 3 tails if need be (which I doubt he'd need). But Shika knows of 3 tails and what it's capable of, and what triggers it.
