Match #5: 4/1/2013

BATTLE NAME: Fog of War!
Format: 3v3
Style: Singles
Chills/Recovery: 2 chills / 5 recoveries
Disqualification: 1 Day DQ / 2 Day Ref DQ
Switch Rules: OK
Item Rules: On
Ability Rules: All
Arena: ASB Tournament Arena

SPECIAL CONDITIONS: Some especially underhanded trainers play by the unfathomable rules of not showing their opponent their entire team before each battle, giving them a distinct strategic advantage. Though such trainers are often looked down upon for their backstabbing drudgery, it does raise an interesting point - how will top battlers perform without being able to see the opponent's bench?

Wifi Clause is off, essentially.
Glacier Knight is known for a few things in the ASB community: his love of roleplay shenanigans that totally shouldn't be allowed but somehow always are, and his passion for the Ice Type. However, such a prominent affinity for simply one type may be an advantage that Elevator Music can take advantage of in this battle—without knowing Glacier's team, I'd say he already does! Glacier pulls out the first of three PokeBalls from his belt and releases his contents. Grab your coats everyone, here comes a... Fidgit?!

Nature: Quiet (+SpAtk, -Speed)

Type: Poison/Ground

Poison: Poison STAB; immunity to Poison/Toxic, see and breath through smog/smokescreens/haze uninhibited. Able to use Wrap and Bind without losing focus. Superior senses in urban settings.
Ground: Ground STAB; Immune to all electrical attacks, can Dig through almost any substance, Evasive Digging reduced from 3 per action Energy Cost to 2 per action, superior senses in darkened cave surroundings.

Abilities:

Persistent: (Innate) This Pokemon has a great affinity for odd field effects. When it uses one of these effects it increases their duration. Moves affected are Gravity, Heal Block, Lucky Chant, Magic Room, Safeguard, Trick Room, Tailwind, and Wonder Room by an additional one (1) round or three (3) actions depending on the move.
Vital Spirit: (Innate) This Pokemon has a high vitality and alertness making it immune to sleep induced by other Pokemon. Its normal state of sleeplessness makes it take 1 less damage/action from Ghost Curse. If it is put to sleep by a Pokemon with Mold Breaker it will wake up the next action.
Prankster(DW-UNLOCKED): (Innate) The Pokemon is always prepared for engaging in sneaky tactics and trickery, giving its non-damaging attacks an increase in priority level.

Elevator Music, on the other hand, has a wide range of Pokemon types. The only thing you can count on when facing him is that their movepools will be maxed. So let's see who he chose to lead with, and it looks like: Slowking!

Slowking [Yadokingu] (M)
Nature: Quiet (+1 SpA, -15% Spe, -10% Eva)
Type:
Water: Water STAB; Can breathe and have excellent mobility when underwater, are less capable on land unless they are entirely amphibious.
Psychic: Psychic STAB; less susceptible to blinding, more susceptible to sound-based assaults as far as locking on with Psychic attacks, can lift and throw opponents with Psychic regardless of Special Attack Rank. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks.

Abilities:
Oblivious: (Innate) This Pokemon is incapable of being affected by Attract, Cute Charm, or Captivate.
Own Tempo: (Innate) This Pokemon moves at its own pace and when confused, it will never harm itself in confusion. If the Pokemon also has Tangled Feet, it will raise Accuracy by one (1) Stage.
Regenerator (DW): (Innate) 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.

Hello, ASB, and welcome to the Fifth "Bi-Weekly" ASB Highlight match! We're here to watch two of ASB's best battlers duke it out in real-time! We've already seen the choice of leads—Glacier with Fidgit, Em with Slowking—but, in a twist, we don't know who's in reserve!

It seems like Glacier is eager to find out the answer to that question, ordering his Fidgit to use a phazing Circle Throw... but Slowking has Teleported clean out of his way, and he ends up throwing a bunch of nothing. Fidgit follows by throwing up a protective barrier. Slowking doesn't look like it planned on attacking, though, as it simply sets up a Substitute. Fidgit again tries to Circle Throw the Slowking, but ends up only hitting the Sub. Looks like Slowking is going nowhere after all! Slowking replies with its own phazing move, sending Fidgit back into its Pokeball and summoning Glacier's Froslass!

Round was awful boring today, but Elevator Music has a sub up and learned some crucial information. Of course, he's got a terrible matchup and is ordering first to boot, so will he be able to even capitalize?
