    Pinnacle Ruins

    Sized for - 3 Pokémon per side. (Large)
    Water Depth - Shallow (Surf, Muddy Water, and Dive can be used by drawing on the water source. Small Pokémon can submerge themselves, larger Pokémon can simply wade through the water with little difficulty.)
    Seismic Activity - Allowed (The arena is sufficiently far from unprotected structures, or is properly insulated against this sort of punishment. Earthquake, Magnitude, Fissure, and Dig are permitted.)

    A ruined complex from a bygone age, these crumbling pillars and walls bask in the high-altitute sunlight. The air is fridgid in this altitutes, but the sun alleviates this.


    Pinnacle Ruins has the following traits:

    • The long trek up to reach this arena takes its toll on even the hardiest traveler - both players' lead Pokémon (or only Pokémon as the case may be) have one less rank in Attack and Special Attack for the first three rounds of battle.
    • Weather affinity (Sun) and Weather affinity (Hail). The appropriate weathers last an additional two (2) rounds.
    • Seismic attacks, while not forbidden, are hazardous. Each time one is used, the user risks a 10% chance that a nearby pillar or old wall will crumple onto them; dealing damage as a R5 user of non-STAB Rock Slide.

    LouisCyphre's possible choices:

    Larvesta (open)

    [​IMG]
    Larvesta (Female) - Empress
    Nature: Bold (Def: +1, Atk: -1)
    Type: Bug / Fire
    Bug Type - Bug STAB; More mobility in dense brush or forest conditions. Gain an extra guaranteed attack on multi-hit moves.
    Fire Type - Fire STAB; immune to burn, 50% reduction in freeze chance, emit a low glow in dark places, takes additional damage if active open flames are exposed to a water attack. Superior senses in volcanic or brushfire areas.

    Abilities:
    Flame Body - (Innate) This Pokemon’s external temperature is kept at such a high level that any contact attack used on this Pokemon has a 30% chance of burning the opponent.
    0 -
    (DW) Swarm - (Dormant) - (Innate) When this Pokemon’s HP is lower than 33% (flat), the Base Attack Power of any Bug-typed attack is increased by 2. (eg Silver Wind goes from 6 to 8, X-Scissor from 8 to 10)

    Stats:

    HP: 90
    Atk: Rank 2 (-)
    Def: Rank 3 (+)
    SpA: Rank 2
    SpD: Rank 2
    Spe: 60

    EC: 1 / 6
    MC: 0
    DC: 1 / 5

    Attacks:

    Level-Up Moves - Ember, String Shot, Leech Life, Take Down, Bug Buzz, Flare Blitz
    Egg Moves - Morning Sun, Magnet Rise, Harden
    BW TM Moves - Will-O-Wisp, Sunny Day, Light Screen

    A rigid follower and enforcer of rules, Larvesta has little tolerance for those who are lazy or disruptive of order. A stringent believer in picking one's battles, she does not attack until all due preperations and ceremonies have been completed; only when all appropriate wards and safegaurds are up and fortified will Larvesta begin her offensive.
    Horsea (open)

    [​IMG]
    Horsea (Male)
    Nature: Lonely (Atk: +1, Def: -1)
    Type: Water
    Water Type - Water STAB; Can breathe and have excellent mobility when underwater, are less capable on land unless they are entirely amphibious.


    Abilities:
    Swift Swim - (Innate) The Pokemon with this ability moves extremely fast in slick, rainy conditions, doubling (x2) its speed in the rain.
    Sniper - (Innate) This Pokemon has deadly accuracy and strikes sensitive points, increasing its critical hit bonus from +3 to +5 on single attacks, +2 to +3 on two-hit attacks, and +1 to +2 on multi-hit attacks.
    (DW) Damp - (Dormant) - (Innate) This Pokemon releases a damp mist upon entry into battle that short circuits the opponent’s ability to use Selfdestruct or Explosion.

    Stats:

    HP: 90
    Atk: Rank 3 (+)
    Def: Rank 2 (-)
    SpA: Rank 3
    SpD: Rank 1
    Spe: 60

    EC: 0 / 9
    MC: 0
    DC: 0 / 5

    Attacks:

    Egg Moves - Outrage(*), Signal Beam(*), Disable(*)
    BW TM Moves - Rain Dance(*), Scald(*), Substitute(*), Ice Beam

    This Horsea has something to prove to the world, and he's going to prove it all on his own. He prefers to rely on power whenever he can, but he carries an array of hindering and defensive moves in case he needs the protection - again, relying on only himself for this sort of support.
    Teddiursa (open)

    [​IMG]
    Teddiursa (Male) - Roosevelt
    Nature: Impish (Def: +1, SpA: -1)
    Type: Normal
    Normal Type - Normal STAB; adapt comfortably to any surrounding after 3 actions. Able to use Outrage without losing focus.


    Abilities:
    Pickup - (Innate) This Pokemon has a natural habit of collecting items. Whenever a hold item (its own or an opponents) is used or knocked onto the ground with a move like Knock Off, this Pokemon will immediately pick up that item without using an action. It can also grab dropped or naturally occuring hold items in arenas.
    Quick Feet - (Innate) This Pokemon feels a sense of anxiety when afflicted with a status condition and its speed increases by 50% (x1.5). Although it can still be fully paralyzed, it will not suffer the speed drop.
    (DW) Honey Gather - (Dormant) - (Innate) This Pokemon emits a scent of sweet honey that lowers all foes' Evasion by one (1) Stage.

    Stats:

    HP: 90
    Atk: Rank 3
    Def: Rank 3 (+)
    SpA: Rank 1 (-)
    SpD: Rank 2
    Spe: 40

    EC: 0 / 6
    MC: 0
    DC: 0 / 5

    Attacks:

    Level-Up Moves - Covet, Stratch, Leer, Lick, Fake Tears, Fury Swipes, Faint Attack, Sweet Scent
    Egg Moves - Belly Drum, Close Combat, Yawn
    BW TM Moves - Frustration, Dig, Protect

    A bit ill-behaved and mischievious, Roosevelt takes much after his namesake in terms of jokes and pranks. Jovial and easy to please; Roosevelt is generally content. He is slow to anger; but can be dangerous when roused by an adversary.
    Scratchet (open)

    [​IMG]
    Scratchet (Female) - Pumyra
    Nature: Modest (SpA: +1, Atk: -1)

    Scrappy - (Innate) This Pokemon’s Normal and Fighting attacks carry a special signature that can damage Ghosts, even if they have phased out.
    Prankster - (Innate) The Pokemon is always prepared for engaging in sneaky tactics and trickery, giving its non-damaging attacks an increase in priority level.
    (DW) Vital Spirit - (Dormant) - (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.

    Stats:

    HP: 90
    Atk: Rank 2 (-)
    Def: Rank 3
    SpA: Rank 2 (+)
    SpD: Rank 3
    Spe: 40

    EC: 0 / 6
    MC: 0

    Attacks:

    Level-Up Moves - Fury Swipes, Harden, Focus Energy, Rock Smash, Roar
    Egg Moves - Roost, Nature Power, Memento
    BW TM Moves - Taunt, Toxic, Substitute

    Observant and withdrawn, Scratchet watches the interactions rather than interacting herself. Her moves are often calculated to have long-lasting effects - no need for unnecessary waste on something that only lasts for the moment.

    Hustle (DW): (Can be Enabled) This Pokemon puts immense force and speed in its physical attacks, increasing the Base Attack Power of all its physical attacks by three (3), but the haste used lowers their accuracy to 80% of normal.

    Both challengers have roughed their way up the mountain to the arena, and all their Pokemon are looking tired. LouisCyphre commands Pumyra the Scratchet to step forward, while Temperantia gives a knowing look to Pazuzu the Zubat as he flaps his way to the center of the arena. Pumyra starts out by swiftly making a Substitute to shield herself from Pazuzu's strikes, while Pazuzu counters back with an Acrobatics. The attack fails to break the substitute, partly because Pazuzu is already worn out from his long trek. Pumyra responds to this by using Nature Power, summoning a Tri Attack that weakly hits Pazuzu. Pumyra must also be tired from getting here. Pazuzu, still trying to break Pumyra's substitute, uses a weak Wing Attack that somehow manages to shred the substitute into pieces. He then follows up with a Confuse Ray, which lands an Intense Confusion on Pumyra. Pumyra attempts to counterattack with Fury Swipes, but hits herself in confusion! However, she barely does any damage to herself with her high defenses and weakened attack power from the climb...

    When you hurt yourself in confusion, the counter is brought down to 1 (thus it would snap out of confusion before it attacked next). I just listed it as snapping out of confusion then for simplicity.

    Alright, the data audit thread specifically says to one, but after talking with others I agree it should be by one, so I'll change it so that Scratchet has 2 actions of confusion left

    "Let's pressure our opponents with offense, Pazuzu! Use Air Cutter to bring some luck into the equation, then use Brave Bird. Finish with Confuse Ray, but if Scratchet sets up a successful Substitute on the second or third action, replace your second and third actions with Acrobatics and Wing Attack, respectively!"

    "Alright, this isn't as good as I had hoped. Your first taste of battle is at a disadvantage like I wanted, but we're having the rules changed on us. Don't worry about it - all the better to learn from!"

    Nature Power | Substitute (25 HP) | Roost
    If you hit yourself on Action 2 or 3, push actions down the queue.

    Pumyra start off the round breaking through her confusion with a Nature Power, which again becomes a Tri Attack. This time, however, it manages to inflict Light Freeze on Pazuzu, freezing it for one action. Pazuzu attempts to attack Pumyra, but is frozen solid! Pumyra finally snaps out of confusion and sees that her opponent is unable to move, so she sets up another Substitute. Pazuzu suddenly cracks open the ice encasing him, and uses swift Acrobatics to retaliate, however, it fails to break the substitute. Pumyra starts to recover HP using Roost (how......?), while Pazuzu uses a Wing Attack to rip open the new substitute.

    "Okay, that's that. This match-up is beyond hope for you right now. Pumyra, you're tagging out with Roosevelt. Teddy; be on your guard - their likely switches are Nidorino or Shellder."

    "Ha, your tactics are amusing. But, I'll meddle with your plan. Iris, go!
    Iris, start by setting up a Reflect to destroy his offenses. Then, set up a Leech Seed on Roosevelt and finish by using some Acrobatics to rough him up. If he ever uses Belly Drum, replace your next action with Encore only once."

    The round starts off as both players choose to withdraw their Pokemon and send out new ones. LouisCyphre sends out Roosevelt the Teddiursa, while Temperantia sends out Iris the Hoppip! Iris, with her superior Speed, starts off by putting up a Reflect to shield herself. This bores Roosevelt, who Yawns loudly and then sucks some honey off his paw. Roosevelt then senses that an attack is coming, and Protects himself against the Leech Seeds Iris suddenly shoots out! Iris, apparently tired from this, falls into a deep sleep. Roosevelt notices this, and runs up to Iris to hit her with a Frustration! Poor Iris.... that's just mean of Roosevelt! Oh well, at least Iris will wake up next action...

    Iris, suddenly waking up from her sleep, launches tiny Stun Spores at Roosevelt, paralyzing him. The paralysis activates Roosevelt's Quick Feet, and him starts speeding towards Iris, preparing to smack him with a Fury Swipes. However, he is not used to his newfound Speed, and his attack misses. This angers Roosevelt, so he follows up with a Frustration, dealing a critical hit and bypassing the Reflect Iris set up. Iris found this fascinating, and orders an Encore of this performance (why....?). Roosevelt delivers, using Frustration again, although this time it does not crit. Iris is disappointed, and she takes this out by spreading Leech Seeds all over Roosevelt to sap his HP.

    Roosevelt hurriedly finished up his encore performance with another Frustration, doing good damage as there was nothing protecting Iris. Iris immediately fixes this by putting up another Reflect. Roosevelt finds using screens really boring, so he Yawns, while Iris shoots a red beam up at the sky using Sunny Day, making the sun shine brightly for 6 rounds! This extra sunlight activates Iris's Chlorophyll ability, allowing it to outspeed Roosevelt and slam it with an Acrobatics. Roosevelt, upset that Iris once again outspeeds him, pounds on his Belly like a Drum, putting him in a frenzy and increasing his Attack stat by an enormous amount. Roosevelt's Yawn kicks in, but Iris's Leaf Guard ability activates as the sun is shining, so she does not fall asleep!

    I really could have reffed this a couple of different ways, but all of them would have ended up in Teddiursa fainting anyways. This one made the most sense to me so i just went with it.

    Iris was amazed by the intense fury that Roosevelt suddenly created, and wanting to see it again, she used Encore. Roosevelt tried his hardest to whip up that same anger with another Belly Drum, but found himself too tired to continue and fainted from a lack of energy!
