    Heaven or Hell...

    ~Bright green flora carpet an expansive forest that stretches as far as the eye can see. Lush aromas waft throughout the trees, fragrant of delicious fruit. The berries lie ripe and waiting for the picking; their brightly colored skins incredibly inviting. Small Pokemon such as Pachirisu and Taillows could be seen scattering about through the branches and leaves as the balmy afternoon sun pores over the landscape, giving plentiful lightning.~

    Well, there's a type I didn't want to see. We also have very few defensive options..

    Mud Slap > Iron Head > Iron Head
    IF Protect is used on action 1 THEN swap the order of actions 1 and 2

    ORDERS!
    Phanpy: Pickup Apicot Berry -> Earthquake ~ Natural Gift ~ Earthquake
    Aron: Mud-Slap ~ Iron Head ~ Iron Head

    LET'S ROCK!

    As he spies with his little eyes, Don Corneo spots a tasty looking Apicot Berry on a nearby shrub, and swipes it up with his deft trunk with ease. As Splat readies herself into position, Don Corneo already sends off a deadly Earthquake, wracking her for massive damage! Reeling from the hit, Splat gobbles up a mound of fresh dirt with her maw and spits it straight into the Phanpy's eyes!

    As the dirt stings his vision, Don Corneo summons power from the Apicot Berry, answering Splat's mud attack with an earthly beam of his own. Unfortunately, the beam collides into a tree, missing its mark. Struggling to shake off the mud, Don Corneo is sent flying back with a fierce Iron Head from Splat.

    Phanpy slams his front legs into the ground, sending another fearsome tremor towards Splat's way. This time, Don Corneo makes his mark and Splat is left worse than before. The Earthquakes cause several small branches to snap and tumble all over the forest and many of the smaller Pokemon begin to flee. Hurting big time, the Aron closes the round by charging in Don Corneo again, pushing him further back.

    Natural Gift has no accuracy, therefore i believe the Mud Slap drop shouldn't affect it. I may well be wrong...

    Either Way: Natural Gift>Earthquake>Natural Gift!

    Wow, that's weird! Natural Gift should be affected by accuracy/evasion modifiers. It could be a typo. I'll get that cleared away.

    According to Bulbapedia Natural Gift has 100% accuracy, not --. I don't think it will make a huge difference as I'm pretty dead either way. Also stat drops only return to normal after a round, so Phanpy should be at -1 Acc for all three actions (nitpicky but I need all the help I can get!)

    Grab a Shuca Berry > Iron Head > Iron Head

    Yeah deadfox, I read on the stat booster page that boosts only reset to neutral at the end of any given round, so Phanpy's accuracy will return to normal after this round.

    DUEL 2!

    ORDERS!
    Phanpy: Natural Gift ~ Earthquake ~ Natural Gift
    Aron: Grab Shuca Berry ~ Iron Head ~ Iron Head

    LET'S ROCK!

    Despite the mud burning in his eyes, Don Corneo unleashes a muddy beam in hopes of striking down Splat. Judging from the Aron's cries and squeals of pain, Don Corneo succeeds. With her vision hazy from the severe beatings and the wafts of the luscious fruit enticing, Splat rolls over to her right and shuffles through the berry bushes. Ultimately, she draws out a hard yellow fruit in her maw.

    Splat rips open the hard skin and eagerly devours the sweet sustenance down her throat. She manages this just in time as Don Corneo rocks the forest with another devastating Earthquake. It smashes through Splat's otherwise sturdy exterior causing rough gashes to form all over her armor. Even with the protection granted by the berry, Splat suffered severe damage.

    Now in point blank range, Don Corneo releases one last Natural Gift that sends the Aron flying into a tree! Splat convulses, shudders, and finally collapses. The winner is Arcanite and Don Corneo the Phanpy!

    Yeah, Splat just didn't stand much of a chance against a ground type.
