    As C$FP (the ref) enters the stadium/junkyard, things didn't look particularly delightful. However, it appears like an interesting environment for a battle. "It looks like Pokemon might get hurt on the sharp scraps of metal," C$FP thought. "They better be careful."
    And then, the trainers arrived. XVIcaliber with his Pokemon and Rewindman with his. Since they were both here now, C$FP went over the rules of this match with the two trainers.

    "2v2 Singles
    DQ = 3 days
    2 Recovers, 5 Chills
    Arena: Junkyard
    -With nothing but piles of scrap for miles around, this Junkyard looks like a perfect place for a battle...maybe. It looks awfully sharp, and might be dangerous to those who aren't careful. Also, Pokemon with Magnet Pull are in inherent danger, due to all the stuff they pick up holding them in place.-
    One Ability
    Switch = KO
    No Items

    And this is how the order will go:
    1. XVIcaliber sends out a Pokemon with its selected ability.
    2. Rewindman sends out his Pokemon with its selected ability.
    3. Rewindman gives his orders.
    4. XVIcaliber gives his orders.
    5. I ref.
    6. XVIcaliber gives his orders.
    7. Rewindman gives his orders.
    8. I ref.
    9. Repeat steps 3-8
    ."

    The trainers were just about ready for the battle. C$FP looked at the two teams:

    "It looks like Rewindman may have an advantage, since XVIcaliber has to send out his Pokemon first," C$FP thought to himself. "Also, Rewindman can respond to either of XVIcaliber's Pokemon with his own Pokemon that has a type advantage. Nevertheless, it could go either way, we will just have to find out! Here we go!

    XVIcaliber, send out your first Pokemon with its selected ability!"

    Let's start things off with Doomsday. Levitate is its only ability, so we'll go with that.

    Let's go, Tangle the Snivy! Overgrow is its only ability, so I'll go ahead and choose that.
    [​IMG]
    Alright Snivy, you've got this!
    Lead with a Taunt in order to prevent him from doing any funny buisness. Follow it up with a Giga Drain in order to heal some hp, then a Leaf Tornado in order to deal more damage! Hopefully you can get an accuracy drop that can help us out later.

    Alright, Doomsday, let's start out on the offensive, since Taunt is an unfortunate, but inevitable fate of our battles. Hit it with Ice Beam first, in the hopes that we can maybe freeze it before we take all that damage. But, even if you don't, tough out the damage and use Extrasensory and Ice Beam afterwards.

    Each trainer has sent out their pokemon. XVIcaliber sent out his Doomsday the Baltoy, and since Rewindman went second, he sent out Tangle the Snivy, which has a type advantage! This should be interesting! Annnnnnnnd, the pokemon have started battling. Tangle is making fun of and Taunting Doomsday, which made him so angry that he would only attack. So he did, he shot an Ice Beam at Tangle! That could really hurt since it is super-effective!

    Next, Tangle used Giga Drain, hoping that maybe she can get some health back from Doomsday. This upset Doomsday, who decided to use his psychic Extrasensory powers, to give Tangle quite an annoying headache.

    Now it looks like Tangle is causing a Leaf Tornado! It appears that some very small scraps of junk have got into Doomsday eyes making it harder for it to see and that will lower its accuracy. Despite this, Doomsday shot a powerful Ice Beam at Tangle for some good damage. Let's take a look at how the Pokemon are doing.

    Calculations (open)
    Action 1:
    Tangle: Taunt: 10 Energy
    Doomsday: Ice Beam: [10 + (3-2) * 1.5] * 1.5 = 17.25, rounds to 17 Damage, 7 Energy

    Action 2:
    Tangle: Giga Drain: [8 + 3 + (3-3) * 1.5] * 1.5 = 16.5, rounds to 17 Damage, 7 Energy, 9 Healed
    Doomsday: Extrasensory: 8 + 3 + (3-2) * 1.5 = 12.5, rounds to 13 Damage, 5 Energy

    Action 3:
    Tangle: Leaf Tornado: [7 + 3 + (3-3) * 1.5] * 1.5 = 15 Damage, 4 Energy
    Doomsday: Ice Beam: Ice Beam: [10 + (3-2) * 1.5] * 1.5 = 17.25, rounds to 17 Damage, 7 Energy


    This should turn out to be an interesting matchup! Now it's time for XVIcaliber to give his actions!

    Okay, Doomsday, we're pretty even so far, but we're about to make it a lot worse for our buddy Tangle. Start this round off with Rock Tomb to throw Tangle into a more reliable speed level. Next, hit it with Extrasensory, then Ice Beam. Now that you should be faster, flinch might be able to kick in, and that's definitely what we want.

    Alright Tangle, lead with a Glare so that speed drop will be meaningless. Follow it up with a Giga Drain in order to heal off some damage and hurt him where it hurts, followed by a Mega Drain in order to heal off a bit more!

    Tangle is starting this round off with a very creepy Glare at Doomsday, instilling so much fear into Doomsday that it became paralyzed! Doomsday then created a Rock Tomb around Tangle, and Tangle's speed lowered trying to get out! Tangle uses Giga Drain to get some health back. Still afraid of Tangle and not wanting to go near him, Doomsday uses his Extrasensory powers from a distance to attack Tangle from a distance. Once again, Tangle is draining health from Doomsday, but Mega instead of Giga. Upset that Tangle keeps stealing its health, Doomsday shoots an Ice Beam at him, getting rid of all of the health he gained this round and more! Let's take a look at how the pokemon are.

    Alright Tangle, we got this! Start off with a Giga Drain and follow it up with a Mega Drain! If for some reason it is still standing, use one last Giga Drain! However, if it decides to use self destruct, go ahead and set up a reflect before hand in order to absorb the impact!

    Giga Drain - Mega Drain - Giga Drain
    If self destruct it uses self destruct, go ahead and replace an action with reflect in order to set it up before the impact!

    Just a little bit more! We should be able to take it out if we don't get parahaxxed...

    Ice Beam ~ Selfdestruct ~ ???

    Oh, one real quick thing, to the ref, and to my opponent, to whom I am very sorry. This will be the last post I can make on here in the next couple of weeks, due to me going on vacation for a while starting tomorrow very early in the morning. Now, I don't know how extended hiatuses work on ASB, and I'm assuming I'll just get DQ'ed at the time limit, and that there's no way to hold onto the match for that long, which is totally fine, because who wants to have a match slot used up for such a long time? Please, make sure Rewindman gets his counters; I have no particular need to get mine, since I set up this battle last week knowing that this would happen. So, once again, to the ref and to my opponent, I'm very sorry, and I hope this doesn't cause too much trouble.

    XVIcaliber has just informed the ref that he has to go after this round, so it looks like this is the end of the match, unfortunately. However, something is bound to happen in this last round! Tangle starts off with a Giga Drain, once again sapping a lot of health from Doomsday. Doomsday shoots an Ice Beam at Tangle, making up for the drained health. And it looks like Tangle is setting up defenses to Reflect a strong physical attack. Tangle clearly had good timing, because Doomsday just Selfdestructed! Let's take a look at the pokemon!
