    Note for Intimidate: It uses an action and costs 2 energy. (Just if you ever want to use it.)

    Note for Double Team: You can create 1-4 clones with it. Specify next time. ;)

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Round 1: First Fight

    Place your bets everyone! Who's gonna win? Whoever bets right wins 1 cent!

    The bird, Aerial, appears to be the faster of the two as she swiftly goes from place to place around Argos... which eventually leads to a Double Team! Not worrying about the clones and Aerial yet, Argos just barks out loud in a fierce Howl toward the sky to boost his power next time around. Now he's feeling packed with energy! With that in mind, he goes into a Wild Charge toward one of the Aerials... but he's met swiftly by a Protect! In fact, ALL of the clones just used Protect, making it all the more confusing! With a senile smile, all the Aerials hop into the air and go into a Wing Attack assault that smashes onto Argos with incredible force! Argos bites down on his teeth as he endures the attack; he must get a hit in! He looks around and sees one suspicious Aerial... it must be THAT ONE! There he goes, in a Flame Wheel, straight toward what appears to be a darn clone! Oops, that wasn't lucky at all!

    Use Odor Sleuth to determine which is the real clone. When you figure out which one it is nail it with Wild Bolt. Finish with Flame Wheel.

    Round 2: Smelly Bird

    Continuing off from last round, Aerial goes ahead and creates even more clones with her Double Team! Two more rise along the old one and creep around Argos in a gangster way. I see no fear within Argos's eyes! He has a trick up his sleeves - an ace of hearts! He sniffs, and with his Odor Sleuth, he figures out that one little bird has a truer smell than the others. In fact, the others don't even have a smell!

    It seems like Aerial has figured out that her cover has been blown and goes all-out, alongside her 3 clones, by slapping Argos with a Wing Attack! Argos growls in intimidating pain, but he just shakes it off and chases after the retreating, true Aerial. With a good long chase, he catches up due to his hasty charge and wildly thrashes himself onto the poor bird! Static surrounds the contenders and it seems both of them are shocking in pain! Once the hit collides, all of Aerial's clone POOF!

    That's no good. Aerial notices that she needs to put some last-will curse or something onto Argos before she falls down in the future. There, a Toxic gas from her mouth emerges and surrounds Argos! Looks like he's sniffing it up... and... *cough cough* he's badly poisoned! Despite the intensifying poison, Argos just ignores the pain and goes Flame Wheeling right onto Aerial! This manages some decent damage, but exactly how decent was it?

    1 poison damage for Argos

    Argos's Howl boost wears off. The Data Audit thread gives you the illusion that +1 boosts stay forever, but it's meant to say it doesn't go away after the round ends, be it at the first action. I should go clarify that soon...

    Time to do massive damage. Wild Charge, Flame Wheel, Wild Charge. If she uses Protect or Quick Attack, take that oportunity to Howl. If she uses Double Team, nulify it with Odor Sleuth.

    Wild Charge > Flame Wheel > Wild Charge
    Howl if Protect/Quick Attack
    Odor Sleuth if Double Team

    Round 3: staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall

    With Argos Toxicated, I think Aerial only knows one thing to do right now: STALL! As Aerial prepares a Protect shield, Argos... doesn't attack. Ah, looks like he already knew it was coming and Howls instead to boost his instincts up! Aerial could only shrug in distasted as she quickly goes from place to place around Argos for a single clone of Double Team! This makes Argos sniff up the real one with Odor Sleuth, but how useful will it be this round? Mm, not very useful yet methinks. Aerial just puts up another Protect while Argos Howls skyward in how annoying it is to be stalled.

    Round 4: CHAAAAAAAAAAAARGE

    Aerial, knowing that her defeat is... soon, charges in with what I believe to be a volley of Brave Birds! She, alongside 2 clones, crashes down from the air onto the slower Argos, but he doesn't retaliate - he just heals with Morning Sun! The normal temperature says that a medium portion of HP shall be restored upon Argos. Uh-oh, not looking good for Aerial!

    Brave Bird away! Another crash onto Argos cuts through his fluff! He braves it, though, and retaliates by leaping onto Aerial and bashing her with a Wild Charge! How about that was the correct Aerial! Booo! And POOF goes the other 2 clones! Electricity says that must have hurt! Aerial just doesn't stop with her attacks though! There she goes, leaping out of the electrical clutches and Brave Birding Argos once again! Argos shrugs off the attacks with intense strength and calls upon the sunshine's morning to daze him with warmth and delight.

    Well done Argos, you don't have much energy left so chill three times. She will run out of energy so no need to attack her.

    Round 6: Aerial Combat

    Let's get it! Aerial flies through the free air and aims a smashing Wing Attack that slaps Argos away in pain! Argos just chews his bone, gets back into formation, and chases after the annoying Aerial with all his might! There! A WilD ChARGe! Down Aerial goes from the air to the ground! She's like a pinned, hopeless bird in this state!

    Aerial may not have much physical strength, but she is REALLY REALLY DARN FAST! With hax, she slips out of Argos's reach into a good aerial position and flaps her wings in an attempt to cause a violent Whirlwind! The negative priority of the move allows Argos to fear no wind and swing an Ember from his tail! The attack hit true onto Aerial! With that hit, AERIAL GOES DOWN CRASHING ONTO THE SKIES LIKE A PLANE THAT JUST GOT SHOT DOWN! MAYDAY! MAYDAY!

    BOOOOM!

    "The Pokemon launches a wind of amazing and terrifying force, causing the opponent to lose all sense of its physical and mental state, resetting its stat chances and effects like confusion. The wind can blow lighter Pokemon away into objects on the field."

    Whirlwind has negative priority (-6 in fact!), which is sad. I was going to do this: "Hmm, so I'm going to say Argos is kinda light (it is 41.9lbs). Okay, Argos was blown into some water crates, dealing [10 Damage]. There is water running down!" (DIDN'T HAPPEN)

    Argos
    A1: Wild Charge > 9 + [(3-2) x 1.5] x 1.5 = [16 Damage, 4 Damage in Recoil] [7 Energy]
    5 toxic damage
    A1: Ember > 4 + 3 + [(4-2) x 1.5] = [10 Damage] [2 Energy]

    Awesome job Argos! Now, firstly, activate Intimidate. Give it your all and do as much damage as possible before you faint. Close Combat followed by another Close Combat followed by another Close Combat. You're faster, use it to your advantage. Hit her at all costs!

    Round 7: RAWWWWWR!!!!!

    As Aerial is returned to her Pokeball, Hirome steps out of his own and ferociously stares down at the little, weakened puppy, with anger. Little did he know that Argos was Intimidatingly making scary faces! Ha! Look at Hirome lower in fear of the move! After some time, it seems like Hirome definitely had his Attack lowered! This makes him go in a RAGE! There goes Hirome, smacking Argos with whatever he has - mostly his head! Ah, too bad there was no attack for Argos here!

    Hirome's weak attack wasn't enough to defeat the mighty Argos! In a lousy assault, Argos gets right onto Hirome for a beating! Close in, he combats the dragon with ferocious skill! This lowers his guard by a huge margin! The consequence? A large Dragon Claw swipe through the fur! This ultimately causes Argos to spout out blood from his body all over the place and faint into a pool of blood. Only Hirome's "claws" could be more bloodier!

    Argos (open)
    Nature: Rash
    Fire: Fire STAB; immune to burn, 50% reduction in freeze chance, emit a low glow in dark places, takes additional damage if active open flames are exposed to a water attack. Solarbeam has Energy Cost reduced by one (1).
    Intimidate: (Can be Activated) When this Pokemon initially goes out into the battlefield, it generates an intimidating roar or war cry that shakes all opponents on the battlefield, reducing their Attack stage by one (1). The attack drop is maintained at the end of each round. If an opponent switches in a new Pokemon, Intimidate can be activated again.
    Flash Fire: (Innate)This Pokemon thrives in high temperatures, and takes the energy of any fire attack, nullifies the damage, and uses the additional power to boost its own fire attack’s Base Attack Power by two (2).

    Def: **
    SpA: ****(+1)
    SpD: * (-1)

    Calculations (open)

    Hirome
    A1: Rage > 4 + [(4-2) x 1.5] + (0-1 x 1.5) = [6 Damage] [3 Energy]
    A2: Dragon Claw > 8 + 3 + [(4-2) x 1.5] + (1-1 x 1.5) = [14 Damage] [5 Energy]
    "The Pokemon launches a wind of amazing and terrifying force, causing the opponent to lose all sense of its physical and mental state, resetting its stat chances and effects like confusion. The wind can blow lighter Pokemon away into objects on the field."

    Whirlwind has negative priority (-6 in fact!), which is sad. I was going to do this: "Hmm, so I'm going to say Argos is kinda light (it is 41.9lbs). Okay, Argos was blown into some water crates, dealing [10 Damage]. There is water running down!" (DIDN'T HAPPEN)

    Argos
    A1: Intimidate > [2 Energy]
    5 toxic damage
    A1: Close Combat > 12 + [(3-3) x 1.5] = [12 Damage] [8 Energy]
    5 toxic damage
