    First off can I ask a question, does run away allow me to dodge the pokèmon that attack? Because the description say
    This Pokemon is quick on its feet and can evade any traps in an arena. Run Away does not allow the Pokemon to escape from trapping moves or abilities, however it can escape other situational trapping strategies in battle.

    If it allows me to dodge the Pokémon then I will use run away if not I will use adaptability. ( I believe that's the earliest use of a substitution ever lol).

    For the moves lets get annoying

    First use growl to lower his attack then use a shadow ball to get of some damage and finally use a another shadow ball to hopefully take advantage of it's lowered sp.def

    wow not who I expected you'd send out lol. Anyway...

    Lets start things off hot, hot meaning Fire Blast. Try to confuse her with a Swagger, she won't be using her attack anyway, effectively at least. Then contunue the charbroiling and hit her with Flamethrower.

    Round 1: Safariing... once again!

    Gosh, I've already been here two times... I think. NOW IT'S THREE?! WHAT'S WITH YOU PEOPLE???

    Anyway, I'm fine. Let's get the tape rolling!

    We're here now, watching a live Pokemon battle starting near some small grass, featuring Argos the Growlithe and purrfect the Eevee! Oh my, isn't Argos so Intimidating today? He sure is! purrfect seems like she just wants to run away after that intimidate!

    purrrrrfect is definitely standing to the more noble Argos by Growling at his face! Ooooo, Argos just got some of his attacking nerves switched into shutdown mode right after hearing that! He doesn't mind the growl just yet, however, as he raises his head toward his offender and shoots a Fire Blast! This hits purrfect square on the face and even manages to give her a first degree burn on the head! Hey, you roll 4/1000, you get burnt.

    At the very least, purrfect is very lucky to not be a physical attacker and swings a quick Shadow Ball to Argos! Poof! Like a ghost, it causes Argos to have painful memories of oh where his poor mother is. What this means is that the Shadow Ball lowered his Special Defense! Hax! I'm lovin' it! Argos shakes off the hit for now and starts Swaggering at purrfect like a rapist. That was hot, if only slight (2 action confusion)!

    As we wrap this round up, we have one silly, confused purrfect looking at every direction! How's her day going? Shaky, I see! Look, she's shaking her booty so much it's as if she hit herself in confusion! Argos barks in laughter and breaths a toasty Flamethrower that inflicts and burns purrfect into pain! The flamethrower is also burning some weeds as we're speaking... but that's good, isn't it?

    A2: Swagger > [7 Energy]
    A3: Flamethrower > 10 + 3 + (4-3 x 1.5) = [15 Damage] [6 Energy]

    purrfect
    A1: Growl > [3 Energy]
    2 burn damage
    A2: Shadow Ball > 8 + (2-1 x 1.5) = [10 Damage] [5 Energy]
    2 burn damage
    A3: Hit self in confusion > 4 + (1-2 x 1.5) + (2-0 x 1.5) = [6 Damage] [3 Energy]
    2 burn damage

    Round 2: Peek-a-Boo!

    Just look at purrfect's situation! No good at all! Still she, has the Speed advantage, and she's just about to take advantage of it! First off, though, she needs to fight over her confusion. THAT WAY! NO THAT WAY! NOO THAT'S DEATH'S WAY! Then suddenly, she makes her mind! With swiftness, she takes cover within the tall grass to cover her poor hide from being roasted! Argos, not detained, attempts to pin down purrfect's exact location with his doggy senses and shoots a Fire Blast there! With an accuracy roll of 945/1000, I think we know where it's going. This goes WAY off course and hits another area of grass, burning them up! The "wildfire" is slowly spreading! Watch out purrfect!

    (something about fire blast miss and argos taking 10 damage)

    purrfect doesn't seem to mind the slowly creeping fire and, from her hiding spot, rolls in a nice, round Shadow Ball and swings it right at Argos! Poof it goes, but with the attack, it definitely pinpointed purrfect's exact location! Argos looks straight into a distorted field of tall grass and blasts a Flamethrower that will hopefully hit! Seeing how there are screams of pain in Eevee-language, that's a burn for you!

    Still in a really crappy situation, purrfect attempts to make the most of it by kicking up some sand from the ground to attack Argos with! She's still in hiding, and that should still boost her evasion, right? Argos is perfectly comfortable being blind, though; he's used to it! There he goes, leaping into the tall grass in a Close Combat motion! All I can hear it "WAM BAM!" And then... a screeching voice of death can be heard right after the deal is done... but there's still some breathing left in that living creature...

    That must have been purrfect...

    Round 3: Burnt Flail

    So it seems like purrfect has accepted her defeat. See, she's coming out of the tall grass as noble as queen! There, she starts randomly Flailing at Argos like a struggling person about to die! This manages some big damage, but Argos takes it like a man. He is a man, right? With a whisk of his tail, some Embers are thrown and they catch fire on purrfect's not-so-perfect fur. They burn... on and on... until purrfect can take no more.

    Pain... how eternal you are...

    Go Rocky
    Didn't Argos miss meaning pokemon should attack him?

    Anyway as Rocky only has one ability I will use guts.

    Floraedit: Yep, that's fixed, thanks!

    Let's show them what we're made of Argos. Use Crunch and hope for a defense drop. Also try to tire him out, so dodge whatever he throws at you using Agility, not that the speed boost matters to us either. Then finish with Close Combat for some major damage on him.

    Lets go rocky, first off go for taunt to stop it dancing around. Then on it's wasted action I want you to let out the loudest screech that you can. After this I'm going to need you to tank the close combat and give him a one two back with a earthquake.

    Round 4: Rocky... Exactly HOW Rocky?

    Let's get rocky!

    Argos immediately tags onto Rocky with a sharp Crunch, breaking down parts of his rocks. Due to his protective shield of rocks, Rocky repels the attack easily and Taunts at Argos like the rocky g he is. This stops Argos from pulling off an Agility as Rocky Screeches painfully in his ears. The round wraps up with Argos getting in close-quarter combat with Rocky, using his legs to trample upon his rocky exterior. Rocky gets angered as a result and stamps the ground, creating an enormous Earthquake that shatters parts of the Safari Zone and deeply afflicting pain onto Argos!

    Before he goes underground use Close Combat. While he is underground use Agility and try to dodge him when he comes up to attack. Then finish up with a second Close Combat.

    For Sandstorm, uhh, some stuff has changed. Your Rock/Ground description is outdated. In replacement of move energy reductions, Pokemon get better senses in a environment. So, it'd be 9 energy for Sandstorm. See it here: http://www.smogon.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3290506&postcount=5

    Round 5: One Wolf... Zero Pups

    And you know it!

    As Rocky attempts to dig into the ground, Argos comes in and knocks some sense into the lil' sucker with a Close Combat! This wam bams Rocky with intense force... until Rocky manages the hit and Digs underground! Argos could only stare at the hole in horror of what's to come. Seconds later, KAPOW! The ground under Argos has been raised and Rocky smashes onto the dog with amazing strength! This ultimately causes Argos to stagger... and fall. Woof.

    Maximus prepare for battle! Show them the power of Overgrow. He won't be hard to finish up. Use Energy Ball. Then heal up, and hopefully kill him, with an Absorb. If somehow he's still alive after that, use another Energy Ball.

    Max comes into the arena with a vengeful stare in his face. It's as if he's saying "YOU KILLED ARGOS? YOU SHALL PAY!" With all his might, he creates an Energy Ball and throws it right onto Rocky! This... almost kills Rocky off! With his remaining strength, Rocky conjures a last-ditch Sandstorm that rages through the arena... until Max Absorbs all of his last HP for his own. Rocky is immediately gutting on his small, rocky knees until he topples over on his face...

    Charge at him as fast as possible using a take down. This should have closed the gap between us. Then go for another close range shot with slash. Then throw up some dirt with a sand-attack. Let's go blind him.

    While he is coming in, try to put him to sleep with Grasswhistle. Then do some damage with Energy Ball. For your last action, if he's asleep, use Swords Dance, and use Giga Drain if he's awake.

    Round 7: Here comes the Haxmaster!

    But can he hax? We shall see!

    Max thinks he's all pimped and cool and sings with a Grasswhistle! Despite the sandstorm covering for Chomp, the Grasswhistle manages to get through the ruffling noise and sleep Chomp... lightly (1 action)! And sleep he does as the dozens of sand and rock cloud the arena.

    With the success of the Grasswhistle, Max gets a bit cocky and fires off a Energy Ball. But the sandstorm distorted the location of Chomp apparently and the attack went waaaaaaay off course! Hearing the "swoosh" of the missing ball, Chomp immediately wakens up and runs toward the area he first heard the sound. It's Max and Chomp's angry for being put to sleep! There he goes, taking him down like a pro wrestler! The recklessness of the action costed Chomp some scratches on his body, but it wasn't much to note. After the assault, Chomp backs off like a guerrilla warrior and plays hide-and-seek with the nasty Grass-type.

    Man, Max, when is he going to hit this sucker? He looks left and right, and there's a movement! A Giga Drain is projected into the shadowed area... but apparently... it was all dust and rock? Does that mean... the attack missed? It did! And there comes Chomp running right behind Max for a Slashing hit! This rakes through Max and drops some of his blood into the dusted Safari Zone. It looks like... Chomp was right near Max ALL THAT TIME!
