    OK, I've only ever reffed two battles at once in my ASB reffing history, so hopefully this won't be too much. Anyway here comes the formalities.


    OK, in Temperantia's acceptance she/he/it/drunk monkey put the arena in hide tags so I can go straight onto the teams.

Resultingly it feels it can weather every strike, and will not dodge an attack even if ordered to. Only when a OHKO move is issued by the opponent does sense return, and the Pokemon acts normally. Additionally even with their extra skill, the power and exhaustion involved in using OHKO moves prevents them from being benefitted by No Guard, they will have their normal accuracy.
    • Steadfast: (DW) (Innate) If this Pokemon is flinched, it becomes aware of the speed difference and increases speed by one (1) stage to make up the difference. This speed boost is maintained at the end of each round.

    Laharl walks through the ominous wasteland where he designated to battle this challenger...

    "Oh dear, Lenneth will be quite sore to learn of this when she gets back to the dojo. But, honestly, it's good to have some peace once in awhile...

    Anyways, its time for a rematch, Arcanite! This is my chance to show I can win without Lenneth's help! Iris, my little flower, go!"

    Iris is released from her Poke Ball in a cloud of spores. Her eternally joyous mood is exhausting to all who watch her dance around. She often uses this exuberance to her advantage in battle.

    Zidane, Cagnazzo, you're up!

    Zidane, begin by Taunting Hopip, then go for a Payback twice on Starly.
    If Hopip has a Substitute up, Use Faint attack Hoppip until it is broken, then taunt when it isn't behind a Sub.

    Cagnazzo, you can Rollout three times on Starly!

    "Well then, let's begin!
    Iris, give our opponents Scraggy something to worry about, plant Leech Seeds all over his body! Follow that up by firing a Seed Bomb at Tirtouga and giving Scraggy an Acrobatic strike.

    Balthier, Fly way above our oppnents' first attacks and swoop down on Scraggy. Then, crash into Scraggy like the Brave Bird you are, and finish with another Fly at Scraggy.

    Our strategy will win this!"

    Really, a tar field Laharl. Really?!?

    OK the match starts with Starly (I’ll be using the species names in this match) flying up into the sky and Hopip leech seeding scraggy. Then the Scraggy, failing to fight through the tar, taunts Hopip. He wants no leech seeds! Finally, a currently unincluded Tirtouga tries to use roll out on Starly, but he is simply too high to reach so the attack misses. Then the Starly fl(y)ies down and strikes the Scraggy right on his noggin!

    Again going first, Starly decides to be a Brave Bird and belts Scraggy on the head again, but this time gets some recoil for his troubles! Hopip bombs Tirtouga with some seeds. Then Arcanites team of Scraggy and Tirtouga hit’s Starly with a payback and a rollout respectively.

    Starly shoots up into the sky again leaving Hopip to use Acrobatics on Scraggy. Scraggy and Tirtouga both use the same moves as last round but they both miss because again, Starly is two high up. Starly is then seen flying down to strike Scraggy one last time, because that damage + some leech seed damage from earlier in the round KO’s the Scraggy.

    It amazes me how effective fly is, without it Starly would’ve been in a really tight position and may have not scored that KO. But can Laharl have the same success next round? For one he is going first and he is also without his usual companion Lenneth.

    "Ah yes, the absence of my sister is touched on yet again. In my opinion, I'm not at a disadvantage; I just have a reprieve from chaos.
    With that out of the way, let the battle continue!
    Iris, fire more Seed Bombs at Cagnazzo, then give him a nasty Bullet Seed. Finish with another Seed Bomb.
    Balthier, you can't do a whole lot, but you can spray him with some Toxic spew. Growl at him afterwards to reduce his attacking prowess, and finish with a U-Turn. If he tries to use Shell Smash, replace that turn's action with a Growl."

    Can Arcanite and his Tirtouga get out of this tough spot, well; I guess we’ll have to keep watching to find out!
    Laharl’s Pokemon aren’t stuck in tar so they can go first. The Starly with a toxic blob to badly poison her opponent while Hopip launches another seed bomb at Tirtouga, only to get an Ice Beam in return as odered by Arcanite. Luckily for Hopip, it doesn’t freeze over. Glob Glob, Tirtouga is hurt by the poison! Glob Glob.
    Starly growls at Tirtouga, he is so distracted by the growling he doesn’t see four seeds shaped like bullets coming his way! All of them did good damage but Tirtouga swallowed one! Any human doing that would have been in critical condition. In anger, Tirtouga smashes his shell, while the poison starts to eat away at his HP again.
    Starly swoops, in a U shape, aiming for some of Tirtouga’s exposed back now that the shell is smashed. It was a direct hit! Starly then turns up into the sky again. Tirtouga is still suck in that tar so he is unable to go before Hopip delievers the final, fatal blow. A Seed Bomb right on the tender part of Tirtouga’s back where the shell used to be. It KO’d him instantly. Meaning Laharl and his pokemon have won the match!

    You've done bullet seed wrong. It acts as a move with 3xNumber of hits base power, not several attacks.

    He's quite right. It calculates as [Inital BP x number of hits], then with type/ability/field modifiers with the final BP.

    OK, here are the damage calcs for Tirtouga redone.

    Seed Bomb: 18 damage
    Bullet Seed: 27 damage
    U-Turn: 8 damage
    Seed Bomb: 18 damage
    Addiontial Poison Damage: 2

    All in all, that is 74 damage which still is a KO for Tirtuoga.

    EDIT: Sorry for all of the contreversy over 7 damage. I'm also sorry that I didn't check the thread, I thought it was completed so I put it in a dusty "completed battles" folder in my favourites that I have only recently cleaned out for my battle subway application.
