Concept: Black Belt Dojo
Category: Basic Training and Practice
Description: The Black Belt Dojo was created to hone the skills of both new and intermediate Trainers who wish to understand the basic knowledge of Pokemon ASB battling. Led by a Dojo Master and Dojo Apprentices, the goal of the Black Belt Dojo is to give aid to those who need help understanding basic movement and answers to general questions revolving around the ASB battling system. Individuals can come here to study others' questions and answers as well.
The Black Belt Dojo also doubles as a training ground for new and intermediate players who want to get the most out of battling. Rather than making mistakes during a first or second real battle, Trainers can come to the Dojo and participate in "Two Turn Brawls". Essentially, you are paired up with either another student in the Dojo or an apprentice and are given the opportunity to test out the mechanics of ASB until you fully understand them. The goal is to cause the most damage to the opponent at the end of two turns (each battler has two full turns of action). The Dojo Master or a Dojo Apprentice will referee the two battlers.
The winner shall receive one Trainer Counter. A Trainer cannot earn more than two Trainer counters over the course of two days. Furthermore, once a Trainer has earned ten Trainer Counters, he/she is considered an "Expert Belt" Trainer, and cannot receive any more Trainer Counters. Records will be kept on who earns how many Counters. He/she still may participate in Two Turn Brawls and ask general questions with no compensation, however.
The Black Belt Dojo is a fairly large training complex, comprising of a thick concrete wall surrounding a large courtyard. The courtyard is actually an advanced training facility, able to be manipulated into any type of field imagined. This allows students to practice on all types of terrain, experimenting with what can be done on certain playing fields, and what can't be done. A player can specifically request a certain playing field or can request that the Master or an Apprentice create a challenging playing field. Also, a player may request from the Master or his Apprentices to use certain types of Pokemon to use, and the Master/Apprentices have access to any beginning stage Pokemon if requested. Note that the Master and the Apprentices cannot keep Pokemon that they do not raise personally, and must use their own Pokemon if not asked specifically.
EDIT: It is being determined whether or not the counters earned during Two Turn Brawls are Trainer Counters, or "Dojo Counters", which are similar but are limited to just item buying usage. It will be up to Deck Knight.
