    This isn't the end! Start with Giga Impact to get some decent damage in there. Then use Protect to evade the Fire Blast, we don't want to risk failing an evasive move at this point. Finish up with Counter! Make him sorry he decided to mess with you!
    EDIT: btw in the final panel, you have the wrong number of turns for Light Screen. It should be four, not one.

    Arena Effects:

    • N/A
    Action 1:

    Scyther leads this round by slamming its entire form into Salamence's shape as hard as it can! The impact is so intense that it rattles Scyther afterward, slowing him down a bit and making him quite sluggish! Despite the assault, Salamence remains resolute, and begins patting its feet against the ground, tapping an ancient rhythm known only to the draconic of heart, and slowly growing in both strength and haste! Much of the audience is standing on their feet now, expecting something great to follow!

    Scyther used Giga Impact! Salamence takes 13 damage!
    Salamence used Dragon Dance! Salamence's Attack was raised! Salamence's Speed was raised!

    Scyther was hurt by its burn! Scyther lost 2 HP.
    Calculations (open)
    Scyther's Giga Impact:
    (15+3-3) x 1.0 - 1.75 = 13.25 ~ 13 damage
    Other Change: Sluggish (1a)
    -10 energy
    Salamence's Dragon Dance:
    Stat Change: +1 Atk, +1 Spe
    -7+1 energy
    Post-Action:
    -2 HP Scyther (BRN)

    Action 2:

    Scyther, sensing the immense power in the air, throws up a hastily-made protective barrier to block whatever destructive attack Salamence is considering unleashing! The attack that Salamence attempts is a blast of flames from its gaping maw! Unhindered now that the rain has gone, the blast would've crispy-fried Scyther's wings had he not erected that barrier! Scyther has to redirect a lot of energy to stop the move, though, but it was probably worth it!

    Scyther used Protect!
    Salamence used Fire Blast! But it missed!

    Scyther was hurt by its burn! Scyther lost 2 HP.
    Calculations (open)
    Scyther's Protect:
    Success
    -7 energy
    Salamence's Fire Blast:
    (12+3-5) x 1.5 = 15 damage
    -8 energy (Salamence)
    -5 energy (Scyther)
    Post-Action:
    -2 HP Scyther (BRN)

    Action 3:

    Infuriated that his attack was blocked, Salamence summons a truly powerful attack with plans to crush and smother and destroy the puny bug and all that it stands for! Salamence crashes his tail into the ground before him, breaking away large chunks of rubble that he grapples with his tail and wings and flings at the poor Scyther! Scyther takes the attack immeasurably hard and his knees buckle under the weight of the mighty stones. However, the attack was not enough to defeat Scyther entirely, and the rubble pile begins cracking and rumbling with immense force. Salamence looks uneasy, and just then, Scyther bursts forth from the rubble as it evaporates around him in the air! With lightning quick reflexes and a fire in his eyes the likes of a volcano, he counters Salamence's attack and throws the flying beast straight across the arena, tumbling and taking incredible damage along the way! Dear God, what just happened?!?

    Salamence used Rock Slide! It's super effective! Scyther takes 28 damage!
    Scyther used Counter! Salamence takes 42 damage.
    Scyther was hurt by its burn! Scyther lost 2 HP.
    Calculations (open)
    Salamence's Rock Slide:
    (8+3) x 2.25 + 3.5 = 28.25 ~ 28 damage

    Scyther's Counter:
    (28) x 1.5 = 42 damage
    -20 energy

    Ok Scyther, you've fought well. Stay in it cause it ain't over yet. Start with Roost to get back some HP. Next use Giga Impact for some more damage. Finish with a chill. If he ever uses Rock Slide use an evasive Quick Attack.

    Hmm. This is going to take a fair amount of energy, but it should pay off. Open with a Rock Slide to force Quick Attack and prevent Roost. Use Dragon Claw next to get in some damage. Finish with Dragon Dance to keep yourself boosted for the next round.

    Summary:
    Rock Slide -> Dragon Claw -> Dragon Dance

    Arena Effects:

    • N/A
    Action 1:

    Salamence, fuming from the rage-infused attack of the bug, rights itself in the air and soars post-haste toward the insect. As he soars overhead, he leaves behind a wake of air that slightly stuns Scyther, and then he soars well into the sky, right in the line of sight to the sun! Unable to see what he's preparing, Scyther stays alert, but is unable to really gauge what's going on! Salamence, taking this opportunity, fabricates elemental rock out of thin air from his rage by some means I can't really explain, and flings a huge swath at the Bug-type! Scyther, sensing what's happening, though too late, attempts a defensive Quick Attack to dodge the attack, but it's just not quick enough! The side of the Rock Slide swath crushes his hind side and deals another round of massive damage! Oh no!

    Salamence used Rock Slide! It's super effective! Scyther takes 27 damage!
    Scyther used Quick Attack! But it failed!
    Scyther was hurt by its burn! Scyther lost 2 HP.

    Salamence's Rock Slide:
    (8+3) x 2.25 + 1.75 = 26.5 ~ 27 damage
    -6-4 energy
    Scyther's Quick Attack:
    Evasion (Failed, priority attacks aren't allowed to be used evasively)
    -4 energy
    Post-Action:
    -2 HP Scyther (BRN)

    Action 2:

    Scyther is weak after that last miscalculated dodge attempt, but still very much in the game. As he turns to charge headlong into Salamence once more, he realizes—SALAMENCE IS RIGHT THERE! Salamence sweeps a mighty claw right across Scyther's jaw, sending it crashing to the ground and dealing another sweep of massive damage! Good grief, Salamence is really laying it on thick now! The attack sends Scyther rolling, and... Wow. He just isn't getting up at all! It looks like that was really all it took to finish this! What an awesome finish to a great fight!

    PKMN Trainer AlphaJolt senses what has happened and clenches his fist. That miscalculation at the end really cost him! Regardless, the trainers return their Pokemon to their Poke Balls, shake hands, put on their caps, and go on their way. Dummy007 advances to the next round of the tournament!!

    Salamence used Dragon Claw! Scyther takes 16 damage!
    Scyther fainted!
    PKMN Trainer AlphaJolt has no more usable Pokemon!
    PKMN Trainer Dummy007 wins the battle!

    GG and thanks so much for reffing. I was so close to making counter a sub action, and then decided against it lol. Good luck in future rounds!

    gg and thanks, AlphaJolt. This battle would have been much closer if both of your Pokemon had been fully evolved; thankfully, though, there wasn't really any hax. Counter caught me off guard the first time; my first thought was seriously "FFFFFFFFFFFFFF-" Thanks for reffing, Rising_Dusk!
