I will start with Thor the Monohm with Static

Let's start by inducing some lovely thermal shocks. Use Flamethrower to heat his blades, expanding them, and to inflict damage, of course. After that attack with Hydro Pump to cool it down and hopefully the vapor will affect its vision and the temperature changes will affect the edge of the blade. But just in case, after that throw another Flamethrower. Better safe than sorry, huh?

Flamethrower - Hydro Pump - Flamethrower
 
#4
I'm sorry I forgot this is 1 ability, my ability is Defiant.

Anyway, those Flamethrowers will be rough but we should take a few of them. Start up with Swords Dance, then try a Sucker Punch followed up with a super-effective Dig. Who knows, maybe it'll limit the damage taken by that last Flamethrower. Also, if those heat-cold mechanics really work that way, staying some time underground before you strike should definitely help you get things back together, as well as normalize your temperature in general.

Round 1: An Icy Hot Island

Needle starts things off, performing a spinning Swords Dance and sharply raising his attack! Thor doesn’t seem to be impressed, he Flamethrowers his opponent all the same.

Racing speedily towards Thor, Needle slams him with a Sucker Punch with the flat of his armblade, knocking him back. Thor climbs back to his feet and retaliates with a Hydro Pump.

Needle Digs into the ground, avoiding Thor’s Flamethrower, reappearing behind him and stabbing at him with his armblades.

Nice work, Needle. We need to keep our guard up, though, the little guy is strong. Start this off with Dig, then follow up with a Night Slash and then another Dig! If he happens to Magnet Rise at least once, though, just replace your first Dig with Taunt.

Dig ~ Night Slash ~ Dig
IF Thor uses Magnet Rise for any of his three actions THEN replace the first Dig with Taunt.
 
#7
Okay, Thor, all this digging is kinda getting on my nerves, so lets do something about it, ok?

First use Magnet rise to trigger taunt, we don't want any digging for now.

After that go offensive with Flamethrower while he comes close to you to attack. DON'T PUSH it or anything. Let it come.

Finally in the last action it should still be near you when it digs its hole. When it does so, flood it with Hydro Pump. The resulting mud should damage and hinder enough to make it think otherwise before digging another frigging hole.

Magnet Rise - Flamethrower - Hydro Pump to flood the hole

Hey, I'm not a fan of that particular mechanic either. It seems to just be there to make Stall not suck.

Round 2: How To Avoid A Dragon 101: Don’t Piss It Off

Thor attempts to Magnet Rise, but fails instead, as Needle’s vulgar Taunt has enraged him, forcing him to use only attacking moves!

Needle chuckles evilly at his opponent’s distress and rakes him across his electric face with a Night Slash, but Thor lets fly an angry Flamethrower at his un-underground face.

Needle tries to remedy this, Digging underground, but Thor seems to have wizened up to his tricks, he stomps towards the hole Needle left behind and blasts a Hydro Pump down it! Some of the force is naturally lost from splooshing down a tunnel before hitting Needle, but it’s still like being shot by a Super Soaker. Nonetheless, Needle pops out of the ground, wet but still with us, and headbutts Thor with his headaxe! Ouch.

Thor (Monohm) (M)
HP: 27

Others: Taunt’d (3 Actions)

Note: I made the Hydro Pump lose a fourth of its damage. It’s not so much of a nerf because gravity’s helping it, not hindering it, but it’s still a nerf, since the ground’s absorbing part of the water and force, and Needle’s digging at an angle so he can pop up and whack Thor.

frosty go
 
#9
Alrighty Thor, take a deeeeeeeep breath and keep a constant flow of Flamethrower. Just keep using it. And if it moves, jumps, flies, swims, whatever, just run behind it while using flamethrower. If it digs a hole, try to hit it while it is digging and get some....err..."fire in the hole", if you catch my drift.

Flamethrower - Flamethrower - Flamethrower
If it starts digging, run toward it while using Flamethrower, aiming even inside the hole
 
#10
Not so fast.

Torment ~ Dig ~ Sucker Punch

Do your best to dodge the most of his Flamethrowers. The ample time you have with that second Dig, seeing as he can't do anything thanks to Torment, should aid you with striking ridiculously hard.

Round 3: An inconstant Stream Of Flamethrower

Needle once more throws out a barrage of pokemon-insults, Tormenting Thor, but the cloud-dragon blasts him with a Flamethrower for his troubles.

Needle Digs underground as Thor fails to do anything due to Needle being such a bully. He just stands there, powerless to defend against Needle’s surprise attack.

Needle finishes off his weakened foe with a Sucker Punch, KOing him!

Let’s hear it for strategy over power!

Frosty, new pokemon, BT actions!

...huh that only took like five minutes
 
#13
It seems that our opponent is much more intelligent and strategic than the average player. Nice.


Two can play that game. Go Gespenst the Duskull with Levitate!
 
#14
Nicely done, Needle. Unfortunately you won't be sticking by much longer, so we better make the most out of your power. Barrage him with Sucker Punches until you down. If he bothers with a non-damaging move, just Taunt him as you're much faster.

Sucker Punch ~ Sucker Punch ~ Sucker Punch
IF opponent uses non-offensive move THEN replace current action with Taunt

or die trying.

Lets start with something simple and funky, Gespenst!

Use Trick Room to set up the stage. After that its time to get some lights going on with Confuse Ray. Finally, we only need the hallucinations, so use Night Shade!

Trick Room - Confuse Ray - Night Shade
 
#19
Well I don't think we can do much here but use sheer force. Flamethrower, Volt Charge and another Flamethrower. Try to overcome that pesky confusion, it shouldn't be that hard.

Opposites Of Round 5: 5 Rounds Of Opposites

Panic the Larvesta gives Gespenst a taste of his partner’s medicine with a blazing Flamethrower. Gespenst uses magic Trick Room, creating a pocket dimension , screwing with the laws of physics, and making pokemon with lower speed go first! I need to get some of that stuff.

With his newfound agility, Gespenst launches a Confuse Ray at Panic, who panics and begins smashing his head against the ground, hurting himself in his confusion!

Gespenst chuckles and aims a Night Shade at Panic, which gives him hallucinations of being forced to eat pizza flavored Jelly Beans, damaging his psyche even further. The scare seems to have snapped him out of his confusion, though, and he angrily Flamethrowers Gespenst.

Would you believe I had this round reffed last night, and fell asleep before I posted it?
 
#21
Ok, he moves first so we may be safe from a certain perspective. Zen Headbutt first, then Flamethrower and another Zen Headbutt. If he disables either moves (he can't disable the first Zen, fortunately), just swap them with Volt Charge.

Zen Headbutt ~ Flamethrower ~ Zen Headbutt
IF cannot use second or third moves as a result of Disable THEN replace with Volt Charge

Round 6: Disability Superpower

Gespenst Disables Flamethrower, since that seems to be his most powerful attack. But will such a loss prove to be Panic’s undoing? Panic, changing tactics, runs towards Gespenst and Zen Headbutts him, slamming him with the hardened exoskeleton on his head and knocking him backwards.

Gespenst launches a Confuse Ray at Panic, who, in a testament to her name, hits himself in confusion, before snapping himself out of confusion. Well.

Gespenst, weakened, Pain Splits some much needed health back, but loses some of it immediately as an irate Panic Zen Headbutts him again.

Well, that went well for Gespenst. I don't think he can pull that off again, though, as it took a chunk out of his energy.
