This arena, long hailed as the crown jewel of the Smashlands' Pokemon embassy, has finally been made available for general Pokemon battling!" Incredibly Detailed Description from Banryu (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Incredibly Detailed Description from Banryu (open) Incredibly Detailed Description from Banryu (close) A classic Pokemon battling arena: the typical lengthwise field of sod decorated with a Pokeball in the middle, as well as starting and boundary lines. The platforms shown in the picture are for the trainers, and will be situated along the outside of the arena, rather than the center. At the end of every round, the arena changes to one of 8 elemental fields (non-repeating). This type-based field lasts for two full rounds (6 turns) before returning to normal. The field will always remain in the normal state for one full round (including the beginning of the match) before changing again. The layout and effects of the different elemental fields are as follows: - Rock: Enables the use of Rock-based moves such as Rock Slide and Rock Tomb. The movement and maneuverability of Flying or airborne Pokemon is greatly reduced by the towering rock masses. The cacti in the arena mimic the move Spikes, causing damage to any Pokemon that hits them (acts as a field/movement hazard, NOT an entry hazard). - Grass: Grass-type and Bug-type Pokemon feel very at home in this foresty stage. Grass-type attacks have their base damage boosted by 1 and their energy cost reduced by 1, while Bug-type Pokemon have the energy cost of all Bug-type attacks and Dodge commands reduced by 1. - Water: Allows unlimited use of all Water-moves. Environmental moves such as Surf are enabled, and the energy cost of Water-type moves is reduced by 2. Swift Swim is active for all Pokemon that reside in the pond at one end of the stage. Electric-type attacks aimed at Pokemon in the water have perfect accuracy (akin to Aura Sphere or Swift). - Fire: The arena blazes with intense heat; Fire-type attacks have their damage output boosted by 25%, while Water-type moves have their damage reduced by 25%. The likelihood of Pokemon recieving burns from moves that inflict Burn is raised by 10%. - Electric: The spinning turbines in the arena cause a lot of static electricity buildup in the area, boosting the damage output of all Electric-type moves by 25%. Additionally, any Pokemon attempting to remain on the treadmills must spend 3 energy per turn to stay there without falling off the stage or to move across it, but being on the treadmill doubles the static electricity buildup, boosting the chance of paralysis for all Electricity-based paralyzing moves by 15%. - Flying: Fans blow upward from underneath the stage, reducing gravity for all Pokemon present. The energy penalty for remaining airborne with Fly is eliminated altogether, and the Jump command is much easier to use; Pokemon using it may remain airborne for a little while depending on the Pokemon's weight. The energy cost of all wind-based attacks is reduced by 1. - Ground: The ground is extremely soft and malleable here, reducing Ground-type attacks' energy cost by 1, and lowering the energy cost for consecutive Digging by 2. Electric-type attacks have their power greatly reduced here, as if Mud Sport were in effect. - Ice: Ice-type moves become more powerful due to the frosty air. All Ice-type moves have their base damage boosted by 1, and the Freeze chance of all moves is boosted by 5%. The effect of burns is neutralized while this stage is in effect (though it will resume after the stage's duration is complete). Additionally, the ground is very slippery, restricting movement and making Dodge commands very difficult (according to the ref's discretion) for any non-Ice type Pokemon on the ground. Also, each trainer will be given the option to switch Pokemon when the stage shifts; this will proceed in the same turn order as it would if the trainers were attacking, and it does NOT take up a turn in the round. After both trainers decide whether or not to switch, attack orders proceed normally. NOTE: The field is not to the scale that it is in Super Smash Bros, but rather about twice that size for ample maneuverability. ADDITIONAL NOTE: The fields do not repeat until all 8 have been brought up. "Our maiden match will be a 6v6 Triples battle-according to the battlers themselves, here are the conditions:" "Yep, that's right-for this inaugural event, we've pulled out all the stops and are showcasing a full-fledged, 6v6 TRIPLES battle! Our contenders have posted their teams-why don't we take a look at them?" Banryu's Team: Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Charmeleon (*) Aether (m) Nature: Rash Personality: Evolution created a drastic upshift in his personality, changing him from a rash and impetuous youngster a to headstrong and aggressive adolescent. Very proud of his newfound power, he now has battle constantly on the brain, always looking to pick a fight, and constantly training in the meantime. His battle style reflects his attitude: extremely aggressive, and he is reasonably skilled at ranged and close combat alike. Very reckless and impetuous, eager to charge into battle and quick to attack with nothing held back. His mental defenses are a little weak as a result, but his passion for the thrill of battle and enthusiasm to earn his trainer's approval are unmatched. In battle he is aggressive and unrelenting, and has only gotten more so since evolving. He seeks to put opponents on the defensive with his aggressive tactics and varied attack styles and techniques. Type: Fire Fire: Fire STAB; immune to burn, 50% reduction in freeze chance, emit a low glow in dark places, takes additional damage if active open flames are exposed to a water attack.

Whereas before Myrmeleon was laid-back and always hungry, as a Vibrava he is very active, moving almost constantly, and is now very alert to sounds. His underlying personality, however, remains mostly the same-- he remains a staunch competitor due to his unfailing grit and perseverance in tough situations. In battle, he has developed separate fighting styles: one reminiscent of his days as a Trapinch, where he would huddle underground and strike with powerful Ground attacks, and one above-ground, where his new wings give him much higher mobility as well as access to sonic attacks. He is still developing his ability to fly, as well as his affinity for moves of his newfound Dragon typing. Type: Ground / Dragon Ground: Ground STAB; Immune to all electrical attacks, Evasive Digging reduced from 3 per action Energy Cost to 2 per action, superior senses in darkened cave surroundings.

The nature of her shabby appearance and equally bland fighting style cause her to be a little self-conscious, and she thus feels the need to work that much harder to impress her opponents as well as her own trainer. Being a fish Pokemon, she is entirely aquatic, and does her best to play a strong defensive game utilizing her high underwater mobility. Type: Water Water: Water STAB; Can breathe and have excellent mobility when underwater, are less capable on land unless they are entirely amphibious.

Due to the fact that she was revived from a fossil, she is inexperienced with the modern world, and often makes mistakes because of it. Nonetheless she is quite intelligent for a prehistoric Pokemon, and learns quickly. She is the fastest of the team, and her tactics are largely hit-and-run-- dive in to attack, then dart away before the opponent can counterattack. Her dazzling speed and combination of evasive and powerful attacking moves make her a severe threat in battle, and she cares for little else except to fight.

The seeker (in our case, Banryu,) sends out his first three mons-this is ASB, so no positions are needed. The challenger (in our case, Temperantia,) will then send out his three Pokemon-and two moves per mon only. The seeker then posts his own two moves per mon-then the referee calls what happened. Basically it's the exact same thing as a singles or doubles battle, except with three mons, and two attacks per mon rather than three. And with all that out of the way-LET THE MATCH BEGIN!"
