#1
Open Strongmon Challenge
3v3 TEAM SINGLES (The best out of 3 KO's win, all three will be played regardless. Similar to Waterfall Colosseum format)

1 day DQ
1 recovery, 3 chills
Arena:
Size: Singles
Type: Fighting
A derivative of "The Octagon", the Cell is designed to be the perfect home for Fighting types of all stripes.

The arena is a hexagon, with side lengths of about 10 feet. In the middle are two lines drawn on the ground about 3 feet apart, where the pokemon begin each round. Surrounding the arena is a see-through indestructible barrier that keeps the pokemon in the arena. However, it only keeps the pokemon in- other effects can penetrate, so weather moves are useable. All moves are useable inside the ring, and flying type pokemon can take wing but they cannot leave the arena or fly higher than 20 feet.

What benefit does this offer? The arena is small enough that all combat is in close quarters, allowing all Fighting types to easily utilise their excellent close quarters reaction time. In addition, all Fighting type pokemon gain 10% accuracy because it's much harder to dodge in such close quarters. Because it's easier to keep track of your opponents in such a small arena, Foresight lasts an extra 3 actions.

This arena's small size limits it to singles battles.

Feel free to counterteam me in my completely biased arena. However, I would like to request training items only.
@shinyskarmory: I'll do this. I've got some new 'mons to train.

Volcarona(*) [Harry] (M)
Nature: Modest (Adds One (1) Rank to Special Attack; Subtracts One (1) Rank From Attack)
Typing: Bug/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. Superior senses in volcanic or brushfire areas.

Abilities:
Flame Body: (Innate) This Pokemon’s external temperature is kept at such a high level that any contact attack used on this Pokemon has a 30% chance of burning the opponent.
Swarm (DW): (Innate) (UNLOCKED) When this Pokemon’s HP is lower than 33% (flat), the Base Attack Power of any Bug-typed attack is increased by 2. (eg Silver Wind goes from 6 to 8, X-Scissor from 8 to 10)

Levitate Pokemon will retain the Levitate trait when they use Skill Swap on an enemy, and will steal the opponent's ability (the user can specify if they want a foe or ally to gain Levitate from a Skill Swap.) If a Pokemon with Levitate uses Role Play, they will copy the opponent's abilities and retain Levitate.

Magic Guard: (Innate) This Pokemon is infused with a powerful psycho-electric energy that makes it immune to damage from Hail, Sandstorm, and damage from Leech Seed, Poisoning, and Burn. It can still attack itself in confusion, but will not absorb any damage from it. Additionally, the energy protects the Pokemon from its own reckless recoil attacks.
Regenerator (DW): (Innate) (UNLOCKED) When this Pokemon is switched out during a switch battle, it reacts to the energy in the Pokeball and (ten) 10 HP is restored. When this Pokemon Chills, it restores six (6) HP in addition to its 12 Energy.

Both trainers send out their pokemon while squealing “go pokemon!!!” ShinySkarmory sends out a Blazkien while Dummy007 sends out a Duosion.

Fawkes the Blaziken is first to act as he summons a sunny day. Somehow it gets into this cell but it works nevertheless. Ginny the Duosion doesn’t attack either. She calm’s her mind in preparation for a tough battle.

As he switches to attacking mode Fawkes launches himself through the confined space and lashes out at Ginny with a Night Slash. Ginny tries to spook him out with her future sight, saying that a lot of bad things are going to happen to him soon, but Fawkes stays unfazed.

So unfazed in fact, that he attacks Ginny again! Fawkes fires (literally) a blaz(e)ing (again literally) round house kick at the blob named after a character from harry potter to make her feel the pain! Ginny is tired of being pushed around now and uses a trick room so at least she has a chance to avoid all of these attacks.

With the Trick Room in effect Duosion can move first and tries to attract Fawkes. Oh Dummy007, you are sick! They aren’t even in the same egg group so the relationship is a fail. A fairly embarrassed Fawkes gets sweet revenge against Ginny with a Night Slash. “If you’re not the one from harry potter I want nothing to do with you,” the Blaziken says, but all we hear is “Blazi-Blaziken-ken-Blaziken!”

Ginny is confused as to why Fawkes rejected her so they beams that emotion into a ray to make Fawkes feel the same way! This confuse ray makes Fawkes all dizzy! The dizziness makes Fawkes’ brain Overheat so, to cool down his brain, he launches that heat out of his mouth and at Ginny for massive damage!

The shocking psychic powers of Ginny are used to her advantage when she attacks Fawkes using those powers. Fawkes seems confused as to what hit so he hits himself! Pokemon logic, what was gamefreak thinking...

(You do, sadly. :( Charm and Attract are not the same thing: Charm lowers the opponent's Attack two stages, regardless of Egg Group; Attract induces Attraction based on Egg Group. Therefore, Ginny should have a little more HP (and probably Fawkes as well), and Fawkes should now be at -Atk in addition to SpA.)

(Additionally, I just checked Fawkes's summary, and his Speed was nature-boosted; however, his SpD was not lowered, meaning he should have a 2 SpD Rank. Sorry. :( )

"It's time for the grand finale, Ginny!"

Summary:

The Cell is being a bit tricky because it’s still letting Ginny move first and she takes advantage of that with a Double Recover Combo to restore heaps of health! Fawkes keep the trend of combo’s going and uses a Blazing Hi Jump Kick but it was a fighting type move so it didn’t do as much damage as expected.

After the combo both pokemon get chucked an ice cool coke and they both down it in one. Could have given me some y’know!

Ginny uses Psychic while to smash Fawkes into the bars of the cell giving him the back pain middle-aged men get but he just dances with swords as if it never happened.

OK, I think this time Dummy sends out, then ShinySkarmory sends out and issues actions, then Dummy issues actions. Sound like a plan?

Go, Blackbeard! Stick your hook up that things....whatever pokemon have.

Wring Out->Arm Thrust+Ice Punch Combo->cooldown

IF he uses a non-attacking action, replace that action with a Focus Ice Punch combo, unless it's the third action.

"Hmm, we're going to be taking a massive amount of damage either way, so let's just take advantage of his initial combo doing less than the Focus Punch combo."

Here comes battle 2! It is Spit Fyre the Tropius vs Blackbeard the Arghonaut! This is going to a very interesting as both Pokemon looked primed for combat early!

Blackbeard gets right into the swing with a wring out! The HP the opponent has the more damage and Tropius certainly had a lot of HP to lose! Spit Fyre doesn’t really mind and dances like a dragon. He’ll never become a dragon though, sadly (for him).

Now it’s combo time! Blackbeard is first off the mark with an Ice Thrust that hit 3 times! Spit Fyre uses a leaf sword combo to take an even larger chunk of HP away from the Agrhonaut. This is a real spectacle of pokemon combination action in this today in the cell!

The end to the round is boring though because both pokemon have to take a brake and combo cooldown after using some cool combinations last action!

I think that battle 2 may only last 2 rounds with all the damage being dealt today. Dummy007 is going first but will he prevail?

ShinySkarmory knows he has to win this battle to still actually stand a chance at a comeback victory. The question is; can he win, this battle?

His Agrhonaut Blackbeard sets up a 15 HP sub while while Spit Fyre the Tropius again dances like a dragon. YOU WILL NEVER BE A DRAGON TYPE. How many times must I say it?

Next up it is again combo time and Blackbeard uses a not-very-effective focus ice punch which surprisingly still does great damage, maybe it was that critical hit that did it? Meanwhile, Spit Fyre uses his Leaf Sword combo again. However, this time it can only crush the sub. Blackbeard was lucky that he didn’t see that attack coming his way.

Both pokemon combo cooldown after that, which means that it is now time to end the round and to get our trainers ordering again! This time, ShinySkarmory is first!
