    "Alright, welcome to this temple Solstice, good luck for the match..."

    "Anyways, there appear to be a lot of Yamask around, eh? Perfect...I send in Spiroffin to make his debut! Give our opponent a sign of things to come!"

    Obvious ability is obvious, he can only have Mummy, so that's his ability!

    Fellow the Eevee it's time to take the stage! Lead off with a Shadow Ball, then a Sand Attack, and finish with another Shadow Ball!

    Hmmm...So he sends out an Eevee to try & get the type advantage...Thought as much.

    Spiroffin, I want you to blend yourself in with the Yamask & make it difficult for Fellow to hit you, think of this as an effective Double Team, just make sure you don't make contact with any of the wild Yamask! Then I want you to follow the Yamask & make your way behind the confused Fellow. Then randomly pop out & use Psychic & send him into a Sarcophagus! The third action depends. If Fellow hits a Revenankh, give yourself a free Calm Mind, otherwise, use Psychic & slam him into another Sarcophagus!

    Let's show this Eevee how we play.

    Round 1: Obelisk Temple... NSFW

    AHHHHHHHH MUMMMMMIIIIIEEESSSSSS!!!! WHERES MY MOMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYY????

    Okay, anyway, I'm here today to talk about porn. That's right! Porn! Oh wait, was that "porn" I said? I meant to say "corn" but I'm pretty sure you know what I mean.

    Cornbob 1 is some ghostly thing called Spiroffin while Cornbob 2 is a cute little Fellow! You know what I'm thinking of. Let's pit them to a DEATHMATCH! I hope their friends don't jump in though...

    Look how fast Cornbob 2 is! He's like... LIGHTNING! He's conjuring up a Shadow Ball filled with the ghostly presence of... Yamask in the area! Luckily, no other Yamask is in the way and Cornbob 1 is in a very... suspicious area of the arena... which is the top center! SWOOOSH! The Shadow Ball goes and smashes the slow ghost with his own ghostly taste! By then, it looks like Cornbob 1 is attempting to... slip in with the other Yamask? Hmm, well, seeing how dumb Cornbob 2 is - I mean like seriously, HE JUST ATTACKED AND DIDN'T SEE CORNBOB 1 MOVE OUT! - it's very possible that this will be very tricky for Cornbob 2!

    Despite the odd circumstances, Cornbob 2 follows his trainer's orders like a true fox and kicks up a Sand-attack filled with horrifying sand that hits a random Yamask, mostly because he kinda forgot which one he was battling. This happens to be... the wrong one! DUN DUN DUN! Oh, yes, Cornbob 2 DID kick a Sand-attack... and it DOES have the word "attack" in it, but it really wasn't a touchy-touch. The Yamask just stares right back into Cornbob 2's scared eyes as if he's trying to hypnotize him. In reality, the Yamask is just scared! Suddenly, the room gets a bit chaotic... for Cornbob 2! Look at that, he's hovering in the air with pink jello surrounding him! Is this Psychic or WHAT? And WAAAM! Cornbob 2 is SLAAAAMED into a sarcophagus, cracking the seal and releasing the content of... absolutely nothing. Hey look, treasure! HAHAHA GOTCHA

    Wait, I'm serious! There is treasure in one of the sarcophagus! You just gotta find the right one! Poor Cornbob 2 though, he's just clueless! From the Psychic attack, he just doesn't have any lead onto where Cornbob 1 could be or where the treasure is! Shadow Ball, eh? That's all he got? Well, considering his options, they're quite limited. Let's hope for the best! With the huge amount of Cornbobs in the arena, I have to say you have a 1/99999999999999 chance of hitting the real one! What a mess! And poof goes the attack! Sorry sir, you have just hit a wild Yamask! You will probably received a nice Curse later in the day! Now thank you, please don't hurt anymore Yamask or I may have to call PETAFAGRIGUS! Cornbob 1 still looks up for his last-used trick - Psychic! There he goes again, lifting Cornbob 2 into the air and slamming him into another sarcophagus! This one has quite a few stuff in it! I count three items: nothing, nothing, and NOTHING!

    And that wraps up the first arch of the amaaaazing Cornbob brothers! Watch out for more!

    (Fellow is slammed onto a random sarcophagus while I have no idea where Spiroffin is, sorry Its_A_Random.)

    A3: Shadow Ball > 8 + (2-4 x 1.5) x 1.5 = [8 Damage] [5 Energy] (hit a Yamask who's not the true Yamask)


    not a good place for an eevee to hang around!

    edit: as far as I know, Fellow did get in contact with a Yamask. Who wouldn't want to retaliate after getting hit? But okay, I wanted to be more fair anyway.

    Round 2: Switcheroo! Let the bad boys in!

    With both Spiroffin and Fellow swapped out, it seems we got some pretty big customers coming! Shovrill and Equinox would like to duke it out!

    Equinox doesn't seem to be pulling out the big guns quite yet as she whips out a nice, little Ember that sweeps Shovrill right across his tummy! It was a bit too light to be any sort of true danger, however. Shovrill embraces his huge claws and runs straight onto Equinox with an Aerial Ace! SLASH! Quite a few cuts are apparent on the beautiful flame moth, but she's still going strong! As a consequence of the attacks, the flame body of Equinox rages and consumes Shovrill, giving him a dangerous 2nd degree burn (roll was 2/1000)!

    With bravery and skill, Equinox turns up the heat in the arena and smashes onto Shovrill with a strong, flashy Flare Blitz! This pushes Shovrill, alongside Equinox on the top, right onto the ground! It seems like the Yamask could only stare in horror of the event as they stop their eternal wandering for a quick peek. Shovrill seems to be tiring out... until he suddenly makes his drill run freely as a bird and thrashes Equinox like a twister! The uncontrollability of the drill seems a bit too hard to determine the location of Equinox's drop off... Shovrill WAS getting murdered on the floor anyway! As the attacks runs its course, Equinox is flung right onto the... floor! Awww, but at least it was right near a sarcophagus! Maybe next time...

    After resting for a second, Equinox floats right back into the air and gives Shovrill a taste of her well-made String Shot! This immediately wraps around his belly and slings Shovrill overhead toward the closeby sarcophagus! BAM! Now what exactly was in that sarcophagus? Holy geezers, it's a Revenankh! It immediately binds its prey - Shovrill - with its huge hands until... Shovrill, with his impressive armor of steel, slashes his way out of the mummy's reach with a solid Aerial Ace! This ultimately puts the Revenankh back to rest through the shadows it came from.

    Three opened sarcophaguses, infinite more to go!

    Excellent job Equinox! We seem very evenly matched! Lead us off with a strong combo of Incinerate+Flare Blitz to smash Shovrill into another sarcofagus! If he hits finish with a String Shot to keep him stuck inside of it! If he doesn't hit a sarcofagus finish with Bug Buzz.

    Just one thing of note: In a Switch battle, the person who issued actions 2nd attacks 1st next round. I actually attacked 2nd last round, despite issuing actions 1st, so I should've attacked 1st. Deck Knight vs. Darkamber if you don't know what I'm on about. I'll let you get away with it this time, but next time...

    Anyways, silly combo is silly. That combo will probably fail. So Shovrill, I want you to use Aerial Ace, but in a manner that we'll redirect Equinox's charge into a sarcophagus! While Equinox is busy recharging from that probably failed combo, I want you to use Metal Claw on the Ground, & create some cracks in the ground! Finish up by using the loose ground below us & use it as a makeshift Rock Slide!

    Who said we couldn't create some rocks in a room?

    Thank you for that Its_A_Random. =)

    Also, I don't see why the combo wouldn't work. Flare Blitz is a charge, and Incinerate looks like a mini-flamethrower in BW's animation. I can see it working in two ways: Incinerate is in effect while charging, or the Pokemon charges into its target, keeping it into stable place afterward, and then does a close-range Incinerate (that would be cool!). It may not be the best-looking combo out there, but it's usable together. I'm going with the Incinerate while charging idea.

    Moreover, Aerial Ace to redirect an attack... I don't see it working. I'm making the attack deal damage normally, however. If you take a closer look at what would happen, with Shovrill's slower Speed (especially from the earlier String Shot), Shovrill will basically just be slicing Equinox after getting burnt by the combo. If Shovrill was faster, then... you would be trying to cut fire... which I have no idea what that would do.

    Don't let that dishearten you, though. It's a good try to get some creativity in here!

    Round 3: Dirty Work

    Through the dustiness of the temple, Equinox flies toward Shovrill in a dangerous maneuver! Look! An arc of flame is being incinerated throughout Equinox's mouth! And with the momentum from Flare Blitz tucked within, can you say this is FIERY?! As the burning moth makes her way quickly to the entangled Shovrill, she slams her with the raging infernos and flaming charge that was packed with momentum! This smashes Shovrill into a wall instead of a sarcophagus! Shovrill staggers hard from the assault, but he's still living through the flames fine! He raises his burnt blade and cuts through Equinox with an accurate Aerial Ace! Ooooh! Looks like Equinox is burnt out!

    Really burnt out. She's just hopping hopelessly on the floor as if she's a fish out of water! Shovrill takes this time to scratch the ground below him with his Metal Claw to form some cracks and whatnot! I see some... crusty rocks in there, ready and ripe for use!

    Equinox looks like she's back into shape! She immediately jumps back into the air and resumes her flight. With her bugginess, she Bug Buzzes through the haunted air of the Obelisk Temple and pierces Shovrill's moley ears with delight! Parts of his steel deflected some damage, however. After taking the light assault, Shovrill goes ahead and summons a huge Rock Slide that come from the cracks! Not only are multiple Yamask are hurt, but Equinox is crushed upon the rock slide as well! Ohh the pain!

    Alright Spiroffin, time to get you a KO Counter, I want you to start out with a Heal Block, so Equinox can't heal (?), the I want you use Toxic on Equinox, using other Yamask as a disguise, & finish out with a Hexxing Glare, hopefully finishing off Equinox.

    Keeping it concise & simple.

    First things first Equinox attack with a String Shot and keep ahold of it so we know which Yamask is Spiroffin. Then use a hard Bug Buzz to get some real damage and then finish with a Zen Headbutt into a sarcofagus.

    Round 4: Fire EXTINGUISHED!

    Noticing danger, Its_A_Random recalls his beloved Shovrill for the more healthy Spiroffin! He will surely be capable of finishing off this dirty, fire moth once and for all!

    Equinox knows how tricky such ghosts can be in this arena and immediately ties a String Shot around the freshly released Spiroffin to keep a leash on him. Aha, now it's really obvious who's who! Spiroffin, from the strings, summons a Heal Block that surrounds Equinox. Now who's entangled?

    It really doesn't look like Equinox plans to be healing anytime soon despite her state of health. She goes all-out offensive with a Bug Buzz that screeches the temple and annoys the heck out of all the Yamask! Spiroffin was particularly annoyed by the loud buzz and, as a consequence, employs a pint of Toxic gas that goes over to Equinox's area and engulfs her with toxic poison!

    Noticing that this may be her final end, Equinox attempts to get one last hit in by ramming Spiroffin with a Zen Headbutt! This rams Spiroffin incredibly hard... even enough to bump him into a new sarcophagus! At that exact moment, Spiroffin's Mummy ability activates and turns Equinox's ability into Mummy itself! Let the tomb unwrap its innards. What... it's... NOTHING! Lucky Spiroffin! But it's unlucky to know that the ramming of the attack also went critical! At least it wasn't a flinch! Spiroffin gets up from the dustiness of the collapsed sarcophagus and stares right at the horrifying Equinox. ... ... ... HEX!

    ... ... ... Looks like Equinox just got... SPOOKED!

    Spiroffin, time to be an arse! I want you to Protect yourself from that silly combo of Equinox's & then use Hex until the moth's down for the count.

    EDIT: Not that it really matters, but Equinox's ability should be Mummy now, since he made Physical Contact with Spiroffin & all, & yes, it was Solstice's actions first.

    Godo catch, edited!

    Noticing her end is very near, Equinox attempts one last-ditch effort for massive damage. The same old Incinerate + Flare Blitz combo! As she's flying toward Spiroffin in a burning state, something interesting happens. Spiroffin puts up a shield of Protect! OOOOOF! As the combo makes contact, all that could be said is that it bounced off effortlessly! No good!

    It seems like Equinox can only lay down on the temple's floor, exhausted and tired... in an attempt to chill. Spiroffin hovers toward the oh-so-tired moth and gives her the Hex of a lifetime. She sees... the curses of the world... as she finally closes her eyes...

    And we're back to square one. Spiroffin, let's open this by blending in with the Yamask again. Not sure if he's found a counter, but he'll have to find one quick! Next, I want you to use Psychic & slam Fellow into a Sarcophagus! Whatever happens, we should grab a chill final action to round things off.

    Round 6: Back to Square 1

    How familiar!

    Fellow's still the faster fellow of the two and begins the round by tossing a Shadow Ball right onto Spiroffin's face! This knocks Spiroffin back pretty far... far enough to blend in with some wandering Yamask! From the safety of the crowd, Spiroffin goes and uses some Psychic powers to attempt to throw Fellow into something, but it's nimbly avoided with a Detect! While detecting, Fellow tries to get some DNA senses running... there's a lot of Yamask and there's only one Spiroffin... I wonder if he detected the correct one? Spiroffin thinks he's perfectly safe as he chills with his homie Gs... until a Shadow Ball appears out of nowhere and knocks some sense in him! You are not alone. Fellow... WANTS YOU! And he's gettin' lucky!
