Open Challenge 1v1 Singles 2 Day DQ (3 Days Ref) Arena: Frenzy Arena Arena Properties The spectators in this area are boorish at best - they want to see action, not technique. The proprietors of the arena prefer Pokémon that favor offense over defense. If a Pokémon has Defense equal to or higher than its Attack; or if its Special Defense is equal to or higher than its Special Attack, that Pokémon is restricted and suffers additional penalties as described below. The catcalls of the crowd hamper the focus of all of the battlers, demoralizing them. All Pokémon suffer a -2 morale penalty to damage with all attacks. Restricted Pokémon are especially degraded, and suffer an additional -2 penalty to damage. Pokémon with the abilities Rattled, Run Away, or Defeatist currently active suffer a additional cumulative -1 penalty (applied once for each ability) to their damage. Pokémon with Defiant, Unnerve, or Rivalry (vs. opposite gender) suffer only half this penalty, to a minimum of -1. As a result of the same catcalls, Pokémon with the abilities Justified, Guts, Intimidate, Moxie, Sheer Force, or Rivalry (vs. same gender) suffer no penalty, and instead gain a +2 morale bonus to damage with all damaging attacks. Restricted Pokémon with the proper abilities suffer no penalty, but do not gain the bonus. Pokémon with the ability Soundproof cannot incur any of the bonuses or penalties described above. It is customary in this region to throw tomatoes at Restricted Pokémon. Any Scyther, Magmar, Magmortar, Electibuzz, or Electivire gains a +2 rage bonus to damage when attacking a Restricted Pokémon, due to the vivid red. Accepter may choose who issues commands first. Battlers must be either a mid-stage (Machoke, Ivysaur) or non-evolving (Tauros, Lapras) Pokémon. Additional penalties as per the arena. Switching is impossible due to lack of a bench. Items are at the Accepter's option. All abilities are active. No Items I (XVICaliber)'ll issue first commands. Switch=BOOOOOOOOO ^ the arena and rules.

The attack drop is maintained at the end of each round. If an opponent switches in a new Pokemon, Intimidate can be activated again as an Action, and will affect all opponents. Moxie (Innate): This Pokemon gets psyched after it earns a KO on an opposing Pokemon, increasing its attack by one (1) stage. This boost is maintained at the end of each round. Anger Point (Innate) (DW): When struck with a critical hit, this Pokemon becomes enraged and its Attack rises to maximum (Stage 6). However, its Attack will drop up to two (2) stages at the end of each round instead of one (1) stage until it reaches stage zero (0).

Bringing a cold stare and colder temper to bear, Absol very much prefers more prudent approaches to combat over aggressive strategies. XVICaliber, you move first!
