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 as an Action, and will affect all opponents.

Unnerve: (Innate) The Pokemon's presense causes immense tension in the opponent, preventing them from eating a held Berry. Natural Gift may still be used.

"Ah, perhaps you were expecting me to solely use Psychic-types? Let me introduce to you my balanced team in its inaugural battle! The choice is clear: Diana!"

 
#3

"I sensed you were bringing the balanced team but I was going to load up on the bugs either way. Its time to really see what these counter hogs can do on the field. Of course, you have presented a very tough challenge right off the bat. Fire types were always to be my Achilles and only having one substitution to play with makes it all the worse. Smash, take the field and show that real Bugs should never be underestimated!"

Battle commences between two titans of ASB, with Alchemator leading with his kitsune Ninetales, versus deadfox's fearsome Heracross. As Diana takes the field though, the sunlight overhead intensifies, strengthening her fire attacks further, and causing me to sweat profusely. I don't like the heat. Kick her ass, Heracross! With the sun boosting her attack, Diana launches a confident Fire Blast at her foe, but it's perhaps too confident, and flies right over his head. He retaliates with a seismic shockwave that lowers her speed, and follows up with a second, more powerful tremor. Diana tries a more accurate stream of flame this time, and it has a profound effect on Smash, who is heavily wounded by it, and the second Fire Blast that comes his way which not only connects, but burns him too, activating his Guts ability at least! Oh, right, a Brick Break happens too.

"That could have gone better."

Flamethrower ~ Flamethrower ~ Flame Burst
If Heracross uses Dig, replace that action with a Flame Burst + Flamethrower combo.

"Okay Smash, lets use that Bulldoze to full advantage. Maintain the speed advantage while you are at it please."

And by forgetting that Dig can allow Pokémon to remain underground, misses out on his chance at a KO. But both Diana and Smash are looking very weak from their battle, one attack either way could do it!

With fresh Pokémon on the field, Alch and deadfox stare each other down. Amazingly, the massive steel mantis moves first, blasting Chilla with a ray of heated power from within. He must be lighter than he looks. Hoping to avoid future incidents, the Syclant creates 4 clones of itself, and uses them to effortlessly evade Orwell's attacks over the round while dispelling the sunshine and blasting Orwell with the power of the earth for good measure.

The battle rages, with Orwell and Chilla matching each other blow for blow, but Orwell takes a moment to secure a huge advantage for Alchemator by setting up the deadly Stealth Rock! And things look to only get worse for Chilla, as when Orwell smashes her with a powerful Meteor Mash, he nabs the attack raise! She may be ahead on HP, but this battle is definitely all to play for!

"This is difficult."

Rock Slide ~ Meteor Mash + Bullet Punch ~ Cool (Aerial Ace)
If Chilla uses Endure, use Sandstorm on that action and push the queue back.

There are some things I just can't sub for.

SoSedit: And for everything else, there's Mastercard.

I know, I know. This week has been packed out for me, and the Tournament/Gym matches I'm reffing have to get priority. I'll be getting on this tonight though, after I ref those.
