Good evening, and welcome to the Great Plains. Well, they were great until this rain came. Now everything's so marshy; I think I just saw a bunch of prairie Growlithe barely make it out of that patch of grass! Anyway, this terrain will play a critical role in tonight's battle between Spenstar and Dark Pulse...hey, where are they? Oh, wait, it's nighttime. Better break out the infrared goggles...Hey, this is pretty sweet! Here's all the stage information you'll need, as gathered by our team of specially-trained interns. (I wonder why they haven't come back yet...We'll have to send out a rescue team soon.) Arena Bio/Summary (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Arena Bio/Summary (open) Arena Bio/Summary (close) Arena: A muddy plain that apparently just stopped raining. The ground, which was regular soil, is now mud and makes things a little slippery for Pokemon that walk. There are a few nearby rocks, but no trees, and the rocks are also wet. It's the middle of the night, so Pokemon that can't see well in the dark suffer -1 accuracy. Since there's no sun, Sunny Day will only remove the dark night effect, and will not affect attacks. Though the battlefield is wet, there's not enough water to conjure up a surf. Summary: -1 Accuracy for Pokemon that do not see well in night, Sunny Day does nothing but remedy that effect, -1 accuracy and evasion for non-water type Pokemon who move with limbs. Here are the rules for tonight's battle: Spenstar says: Dark Pulse says: Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Switch = OK ONE Ability NO Items And now, the Pokemon!
