One day, as I was training my Pokemon at the local tournament arena and trying to draft a feasible Gravity team, I got a message from Its A Random saying it was time to practice my reffing, I just needed to find a match. Great. Where was I going to find a match at this hour of the night? It was then that I heard a loud noise. Apparently the two trainers I noticed while walking in here were having some heated argument or another. Me, being a paranoid person, was worried that things might get ugly, so I called them and said: Maxim: Hey guys, how about we settle...whatever you guys are arguing about with a Pokemon battle. Both: Sure At this point, I read them the rules. Ok, I know this is nEsp's first battle, so I'll go over how this works. First, nEsp will send out his pokemon Second, Pippy will send out his pokemon and give them his orders Third, nEsp will order his pokemon Fourth, after approval from Its A Random, I will post the reffing. After that, we alternate orders (i.e. round 2 nEsp orders first and then Pippy.)
