It's early in the afternoon. Tumbleweeds roll by the old guard shack that once kept pedestrians and rivals in excavation away from the man-made crater on the other side of the gate. Apparently tumbleweeds aren't the only occupants anymore, however. It seems two rowdy trainers decided it would make the perfect locale for a battle and hopped the fence...and I got dragged here as the ref...sure hope the cops don't show up, even though it's abandoned, try not to make TOO much of a mess of it, m'kay? The Stuff: Arena and Conditions (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Arena and Conditions (open) Arena and Conditions (close) 2v2 Singles DQ Time: 3 days Recoveries: 3 Chills: 5 Arena: Abandoned Quarry -Now, what we have here is a construction experiment gone wrong. Originally thought to be rich in valuable ores, this giant hole in the ground was found to be a false alarm of sorts after a few years. The company managing it has since deserted it, and all is left is a meticulously drilled pit into the earth that forms a large bowl. The only hazards in this arena are self-created; rain creates mudslides, sandstorm blows all the dirt around to decrease visibility, sun makes the ground dry and unstable, and hail freezes the ground.- Other Conditions: 1st-stage only (non-evolving guys are fine) Switch = OK Abilities = All Items = Off XVIcaliber's team (Move your mouse to reveal the content) XVIcaliber's team (open) XVIcaliber's team (close) Onix(*) - Ouroboros (M) Nature: Adamant (Adds * to Attack; Subtracts * From Special Attack) Type: Rock/Ground Rock: Rock STAB; Take 2 less damage from all special attacks during Sandstorm, Earth Power, Earthquake and Magnitude have Energy Cost reduced by one (1).
